Kinda bare bones

frustrated photoer

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.



Very handy. Notifies daily of great times for photos and walks outdoors (sunrises and sunsets) without any maintenance required from app users. I am not sure how to use the extra features: photos and forecast but I enjoy the simplicity of the app's main feature and use the info it provides.



I really wish this was the tell all app that tells you sunsets and sunrises are going to
be weak or amazing. In my experience since the 6 months I’ve had this app, I’ve had nothing but inaccuracy. Mother Nature is far more powerful than “scientists or weather forecasters”. Every sunrise or sunset has been completely different than what described on this app. So brace yourself for the unexpected. It’s always an adventure chasing the rise or set.

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the review. Definitely tricky to predict sunrises and sunset quality, which is why I rely on a 3rd party source for these, however it can be wrong, especially in areas where the quality of their data sources is incorrect or lower density. Hope this will continue to improve over time though.
