Great app! Add alarm!

This is an awesome app - due to the changing time of blue and golden hours, especially when traveling, I wish so badly there was
an automatically adjusted alarm so that you could wake up every morning at the exact adjusted blue or golden hour, rather than
having to reset your personal alarm every si

'Love the app, just one request.'

'I love everything about the app and regularly use it to plan ahead or even day of for shoots. My only request would be if it’s
possible to select a specific date for the map feature without having to hold the scroll bar. When planning for weddings or other
similar shoots it’s helpful to know ah

'Great features, pleasing interface!'

'My only suggestions for improvement right now would be gaining the ability to set max and min aperture and shutter speed values
in the light meter and allowing for satellite views for the set locations. Otherwise, it works, it looks sleek, love it!'

'Almost 5star - Just one thing...'

'App is great however, instead of showing individual times for sunrise, sunset, golden and blue hour, can you do a view showing
two groups, one for AM and other for PM? I prefer not to scroll to see sunset and then golden and then blue if I can see these
three together (for PM). Can ya please?'

'Local times buried in settings'

'When searching locations in different time zones, it displays the times in your current time zone rather than the local time by
default. This can be corrected, but it’s buried in the settings. It would make much more sense to show local time by default.'

'The simple tool I use most.'

'As an aspiring photographer there are lots of apps that will help, heck I spent about $20 on different ones. This is the only app
I still use however, it does a few things really well and that is a good app. \nI personally will tip $20 is you can truly make
this the only app I use by adding the moo

'Interface is amazing and works great too. Though there should be a key on the map, this app is great for only $1 and no
subscription fees or extra in-app purchases! 💯'

'Beautiful Interface'

'The app interface is fantastic. Very simple and clean. Only reason for a four star, is that I wish it integrated sky/light index
forecasts to predict when there will be an interesting sunrise/sunset.'

'One of my favorite apps!'

'Love everything about this app, I bought the upgraded version of this and was really excited! Just one thing though... my
augmented reality camera is not showing up anywhere. I don’t know if this is a bug or a glitch, but I just wanted to see if
there was a way I can get it back. Thanks!😁'

Good app, but needs to be updated

Before I start with the negatives, I have to say that this app is really useful. It gives accurate information about sunset, blue
and gold hour, as well as a useful light meter for photographers. Despite this, it hasn’t been updated in awhile and it
doesn’t work with iOS 13 dark mode and iOS 14 widg

Great info, good UI, terrible widget

Very useful app. Gives you a thorough understanding of your daylight while on set at a glance. I rarely go into the app though. I
use the widget. I love that the widget updates for morning and evening, but for the life of me the size of the text kills me. It
makes me leave the widget “expanded” to g

Excellent app, but a battery killer

I do appreciate the application’s functionality and design, but the current version is causing a 25% battery drain while running
in the background.

Good app, but interface needs work

This is a good app, but I find that the interface, while very pretty, is a bit difficult to understand. A vertical layout for the
Blue/Golden Hour times would be easier to read, rather than the horizontal scrolling layout that exists now. The developer already
has a vertical layout via the peek/pop
