Does one exist?
You're going to have to be more specific with your request. There are plenty of photo-taking apps available, but one specifically for photographing the moon, probably not.
I took an astronomy class in college about 15 years ago that included a segment on photography. From what I remember, you need a camera capable of looooooooong exposures and a tripod that can be moved X degrees to compensate for the rotation of the Earth (and in this case, the movement of the moon as well).
NightCap has the long exposure capability -- up to one second, anyway, so at least you won't need to bother with equatorial tracking. The soon-to-be-released update also allows for multiple photos (burst mode), if you're familiar with image stacking (I only think I have some concept of how that really works, but I believe it increases signal to noise).
Finally, some type of telephoto apparatus would be advantageous. Yes, they do sell such things for the iPhone.
