Lumy is a beautiful app that helps you take beautiful photographs by letting you keep track of the Magical hour (also known as Golden Hour). "What is Magic hour ?", It is a period around sunrise or sunset at which the light is often soft, warm and perfect for taking photographs. Professional photographers swear it as the "time of day with the best lighting".
With lumy, you can anticipate the best lighting condition and get ready ahead of time to take advantage of it. Lumy shows you the weather information like cloudiness and temperature for the next 5 days, so you can plan things out.
You can get Sunrise, Sunset, Morning and Evening Magic hours, Astronomical, Nautical, Civil Twilight for your current location or any locations around the world. Except for the weather information, "Lumy" doesn't need an active internet connection.

Ratings and Reviews
Time zone and morning time discrepancy. Don’t recommend.
App does not correctly adjust time zone to location. Located on the west coast (correctly located me) but continues to revert back to mountain time instead of pacific time. It does this each time I open the app and I have to manually change it. I can see this as being an issue if one doesn’t realize it’s on incorrect time and trusts the given time. Unfortunately the morning magic hour is also not correct - it should come after sunrise but in this case is listing it as before. I would not have purchased had I known these two flaws. Will be using a different app.
I’m a photographer who chases sunsets and sunrises. This app is so simple and focused on the critical variables that allow me to do that.
It removes the unnecessary noise that other similar apps bring to the table and focuses on the things that matter most. I also like the home panel widget that shows a simple graphic indicating where the sun is relative to the horizon.
It would be great to integrate the Home panel widget graphic into the app itself, allowing users to see where the sun is without having to go to the home panel.
It would also be great if the app allowed me to go back 5-7 days, or even 1 day in order to compare the previous day’s data.
Simple design, very useful
Great for photography/videography when you are traveling. Great for planning lighting conditions at specific times.
