Description

What time is sunset today? Or sunrise tomorrow? When is the "magic hour" next March 20 in Paris? With Sol, you can check times and get reminders of solar events, at home or while traveling! Great for everyone looking to plan activities based on sunlight. Use it to remind you to walk the dog before dark, get up with the sun, or find golden hour time for that perfect photo.

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, get the best light for outdoor photography, make sure animals or kids are safe inside before dark, or to map out the best times to go running or fishing.

* Be in tune: Sol will tell you when the golden hour is, how much sunlight you have left in the day or what time the next sunrise occurs.

* Look to the future, travel around the world: Sol lets you find sunlight information for any date, anywhere on earth.

* 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.

* Detailed almanac information: Useful information about the day's length, sun's azimuth and elevation, equinoxes and solstices, and a friendly glossary that explains all the terms.

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 4.0.0

The wheel now represents a full solar day for set location, which is not necessarily exactly 24.0 hours. The date bar now shows and sets the solar day for the location, not the clock time, which is shown separately and is independent from the solar day. The Almanac now shows solar day length and sun zenith at solar noon. Days with daylight saving time (DST) transitions will show the time change on the wheel. All known bugs were fixed, including those relating to using the forward and back arrows, daylight savings/summer time issues, and incorrect alarm times and repeat days. iPhone only: The info bar (under the date) now animates new information by default and remembers its state (double-tap to toggle).

Customer Reviews

Simple yet useful

A surprisingly useful little app. Find solar noon and apply sunblock before you cook. Use it to find the right time to take scenic photos. I imagine there are other uses as well. Simple to use also

2 years later. App is still under active development. The interface has been tweaked a bit to add some polish. Still very good at what it does. Sometimes an app doesn't need to have a million different functions. Simple can be awesome.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE SOLAR APPS / CLOCK

This is very well graphically put together. I like to ability to alarm at twilights, mid-days and nights, rises and sets - and choosing either civil, nautical, astronomical settings, and alerting to golden hours that are superb times for taking pictures!!
I would recommend that they incorporate a lunar app also, along the same conceptual guidelines. There are a lot of apps in this category but none so well as this one.
A+
Highly recommended.

Exactly what I was looking for.

We have hens. They go perch in their coop at sunset. We close them in to keep raccoons from killing them. Go out there too early, and it’s a hassle to talk them into their coop. Go out too late, and a nocturnal varmint might be paying them a deadly visit.

Regular alarms don’t work for this purpose— I needed a sunset alarm and found this as soon as I searched for one. Thank you!
