Editors’ Notes

Gives the optimal time of day for best outdoor photos wherever you are in the world.


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 3D Touch function on the saved locations tab; please allow users to set this as their default layout :-)

The app would also be easier to read if the dates were always at the top of a given day, rather than the Today/Tomorrow labels that exist now.

Please also ensure that the times given honor the time format set for the phone, i.e., either 12-Hour time or 24-Hour time. Right now there’s some inconsistency here.

Thanks for your feedback. We'll be addressing the interface issues soon.


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 get all three times. Leaving a widget expanded drives me crazy. Is this possible to be user adjustable? Small issue, but a constant frustration for me when using your app. Thank you for making this info available to me simply and accurately.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for your feedback! We’ll put more work into the widget UI in the future update
