No nonsense and looks great.

Was looking for a simple app that gave me the time for golden hour depending on my location. This app does that, and it does it while looking great. Zero BS. Don’t be scared by the in app purchases, they are just donations to the developer, no locked features. First time I’ve seen this donation based model in an app on iOS, love it. I got to try the full featured app and donate after I verified it was what I wanted.

Great app, but Siri shortcuts...

I love this app being a photographer and seeing the best moments to take the shot, but it would be great if we could have more Siri shortcuts such as “golden hour Siri shortcuts.” I personally use the Apple Watch so see this apps notifications so it would be awesome if we could have golden hour and possibly blue hour Siri shortcuts. Thank you.

Kinda bare bones

I really wish this was more robust. No option to view the forecast maps from the website? Doesn't automatically change location for sunrise/set forecasts when you're traveling. Often the date doesn't advance as the days go by. This is a few pretty basic upgrades away from being great.
