What's New in Version 1.1
We've added a new Today Extension, giving you easy access to the next Golden Hour from anywhere!
Best app I've found that gives me all the best times for the photography I'm planning on doing. My only complaint against the app is the customized reminders. I wish I could set a specific time based off the time I plan on taking the photos(just before twilight for example) without having to bounce between another app like reminders. Otherwise a small complaint and the app does exactly what it says it does and exceptionally well.
Easy to Use
Sometimes things are pretty simply because it's more fun to use that way. That is the case with this UI. Sure, it could be a table, but this is just as useful.
Yes, the circle is a 24 hour period. Light is day, dark is night, and orange is a golden hour. The red dot is the current time.
Would a table be faster? Sure. But this is beautiful and fun to use.
Perfect, simple app
Does one thing and does it well. Eliminates any guesswork about when to go out and shoot. Also gives you the ability to set alarms. Totally worth two bucks.
