User friendly & Great customer service

Just got this and seems pretty user-friendly. Excited to test it out of my next session for accuracy. I had some issues with it when I first bought it with it crashing. Their support figured it out and released an updated in a matter of a day. Impressed by their customer service. 🙌🏻

Great app!

This is a great app and pretty accurate as well. **One issue is that it hides the scores for the events (sunrise, sunset, etc) after the event has taken place. There is -no- reason to do so, and you may want to see how an event was rated after the fact.

Very good

Great app. I’d give it 5 Stars, but I just wish they had a bit more in-depth user instructions/icon descriptors. Identifying the golden hour is excellent, though!

Money grab

Paid for this app when it was new, now it wants me to pay a monthly subscription for increased accuracy. Nope. I’ll use a competitor.

Helpful but needs more explanation

This is a well organized and well designed app that shows an array of helpful information for the photographer. However, it makes assumptions that the user would already know how to make the most of its features when it should take the approach of trying to help the user as best it can. For example, the joyride explains the sky and light indices however there is no resource for the user to remind themselves of what those features mean outside of the joyride. Secondarily, the scoring system is not defined—how am I, the user, to interpret a sky index of 8 versus 6, for instance? Furthermore, its additional features are again not defined. What is the target on the map? Why is it positioned where it is? Am I to go there for the best possible photo? Best photo according to what metric? The developer would also do well to ask themselves how they can best set the user up for success. What are the definitions of the terms within the app? How am I, the user, to compare one index to another? How can I best use the map to my advantage? What can I look for in the weather integration to maximize my success? Overall, this app is a well-designed start to a truly useful app. But to get there it needs to consider the user in addition to just providing data for data’s sake.

Internet required

I pull this app out most often while in the wilderness, and it doesn't work there because it requires internet. This app is basically one large math equation that should be able to run on the iPhone. Even a slightly less accurate "offline mode" would be better than it's current broken form.

Just got this and one thing I immediately noticed was a sunrise after 8:30 pm lol. That needs to be changed to sunset. Sunrise is morning! All the details available in this app are awesome!

Needs update.

I have an iPhone X. Please update for compatibility.
By Josephoregon

So buggy on iPhone X

It’s almost not usable at all, it doesn’t score right there’s huge black bars of the top in the bottom, it’s super frustrating. Definitely not worth four dollars. If I could get my money back I would.

Good little app

I haven’t tried the weather portion of the app, but for looking up the golden hour based on location it works fine for me. I am not a professional photographer, but when I travel I like to use it try to get a better shot than I might have normally.
