Any Jupiter moons app that shows multiple days?

Something such as what's pictured here:

I often find I'm catching a quick look around the same time each evening and it'd be nice to see at a glance what's coming up the next several days.

IIRC, there used be diagrams like this in the astro mags (before they got more complex with the curves and times and became harder to process).

SkySafari does a wonderful job on the planets.......OSX/iOS/Android only though....the BEST!

If you have an iPhone or iPad, S&T's "Jupiter Moons" app is hard to beat. It won't show multiple days at once, but you can easily jump forward or back by increments (month, week, day, hour, etc) with a single click.

Really great app.

The other one that is free is Quick Sky....shows all the planets and you can move back and forth in time.

Thanks for the tips! I do have several Jupiter moon apps, and several sky charting apps that include the planets, but would enjoy the multi-day line-up as pictured here:
