Get reminded when it's sunrise or sunset, wherever you travel! Great for photographers-- find the golden hour times on any date, anywhere.
Sol: Sun Clock is the Swiss army knife of sunlight tools with a design inspired by the simplicity of the sundial. Use it to plan your day, guide natural sleep cycles, plan the perfect photograph or to map out the best times to go fishing.
* Be in tune: Sol will tell you how much sunlight you have left in the day or what time the next sunrise occurs.
* Find solar midnight and solar noon, and all three twilight (dawn and dusk) periods: astronomical twilight, nautical twilight, and civil twilight. Keep tabs on the next solstice and equinox.
* Reminders and Alarms: Use Sol as a natural alarm clock that you can set to any event (like sunset, golden hour or solar noon), and the alarm or reminder time will adjust gradually as the days change with the seasons.
* Automatic Location: Sol not only calculates the amount of daylight and sunrise and sunset times, but does so for any location in the world (both Northern and Southern hemispheres) by using your device's GPS... no network connection required.
* Other locations: Optionally, use the built-in map to choose any location in the world by moving the pin, or search using the name of any city.
* Optional location-aware alarms. Sol knows when you change with your location; and as you travel it will adjust any alarms you set relative to sunrise and sunset times. Create alarms for multiple locations around the world.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. However, GPS runs in the background ONLY if you have set location-aware alarms.
What's New in Version 3.0.4
Fix to crash on iPhone 5s after tapping the date.
Is not an alarm.
The app is done well yet is not an alarm. This app is only a reminder or notification type app, there is no alarm. Alarms require action without pause; this app only notifies the user every sixty seconds using a persistence on/off option. If you are looking for a sunrise alarm, this app attempts it but is not a wake-up to action type. My opinion, the marketing is misleading in regard to the alarm functionality otherwise it is a nice app. I'd give five stars if the marketing jargon did not mislead my decision to buy it.
DO BIGGER FONTS COST MORE?
Good App but...
The fonts (on the diagram and and basically all over) are WAY TOO SMALL. Did you develop this app on an outdoor movie screen?? I have 20/20 vision and an iPad and have to really squint to read. You need a jewelers loupe to read the iPhone version! Jeez.
Has good and many updates, but they do not address the obvious short-comings of apps. They must not read their reviews or care.
