Experience of Eric from Spain - (review from the AppStore translated from Spanish)
"Excellent for Photographers!!!

I bought the app with many doubts in my mind. I was on holiday in Rome, and it was raining a lot, so, I just wanted to find, somehow, a perfect day to wake up early in the morning and take photographs. When I opened the app, I saw that it had some bars to score, from 1 to 10, the quality of the sky (clouds, sunset and sunrise, colors in the sky) and the quality of the light (brighter, diffuse or gray). It was perfect! Just the next day, I woke up early because the score was 9 out of 10… until today, it has been one of the best landscape photography sessions that I have had, and all was thanks the “quality” notification of the sky and light of that day. The previous day it was raining, I really could not believe the app was so accurate, but yes, it is really accurate. Really, it’s highly recommend to buy the app, especially if you want to take outdoors photographs because, the app can send notifications up to 5 days in advance. But remember, the weather is always unpredictable, but, so far, the app has been successful every day."

I love this app!


This app has proved itself to be very useful. I've lost count of how often I have wasted my time and energy to get to a location to shoot a sunrise or sunset only to be let down by a boring sky. This app won't guarantee you a great shot, but it will greatly improve your odds. I highly recommend. My only question is: how do you generate revenue, with no IAPs and no ads?
Update: lowering my review. Too many times I’ve left my camera at home because this app said “forget it. Overcast” only to find stunning clouds filling the sky. My window would be a better predictor if there wasn’t a giant tree in front of it.

Good little app

I haven’t tried the weather portion of the app, but for looking up the golden hour based on location it works fine for me. I am not a professional photographer, but when I travel I like to use it try to get a better shot than I might have normally.

Extremely handy for photographers.


Great app for photographers, fast and simple to use.
