Not accurate

2
No we can’t predict how sunsets will look, most times this app can’t either...several times it said less than 20% chance for beautiful sky, welll several times it was wrong..just like last night. It said 18%, sunset was awesome. App Should have said maybe around 80-90%.

This app is about as accurate as a broken condom

1
Do not trust this app if you’re planning to shoot a sunset/sunrise. It’s accurate %1 of the time 🤔. If Trojan condoms had the same percentage at preventing pregnancy as this app does to predict colorful and dramatic sun you would have lots of kids 🤣

Completely inaccurate

This app is completely useless. I live on the beach literally. I wake up to the sunrise every morning and this app has never once been on point. A total waste of money. To the developers QUIT SCAMMING PEOPLE.

I haven’t seen a sunset since I got this app 🙄

Has proven not accurate in my area

The app is rated at almost 4.5 stars which actually surprises me after using it for some weeks. I’ve had the app for almost a month, and I understand how completely unpredictable the weather is, however, in my area, there has been numerous beautiful sunsets/sunrises and each time the app has said there’s only a 20ish percent chance of a decent sunset/sunrise. The highest score I’ve recorded was 28%. It seems as though it is completely guessing. For example, there was some residual rain storms from one of the hurricanes in my area recently, the rain ended a few hours before sunset. These conditions can often be a decent indicator of a colorful sunset, so I checked the app and it said there was a 20% chance. Luckily I didn’t trust that, as the sky was incredible that night and I was able to capture some great photos. That being said, the app is well put together and easy to use. There are a couple other features that would be helpful, so for example if you need to know exactly what time the sun will be in a particular part of the sky, this app will tell you and that part is accurate. I really wanted to like the app, and perhaps it works better in other areas, however I have found it completely unreliable as far as choosing whether to go shoot photos or not.

Cannot access

I just got it snd opened it ip to a page eith an overlay page with their logo that is half off the page and cannot be removed to access the real page. The 1/2 page scrolls left to show sunset/rise photographs. Reloaded two ce to no avail. Very disappointed.

Pathetic

Flipping a coin is just as accurate as this poor App. Very disappointing

Don’t rely on this app

1
this app has never rated a sunset over 30% chance fo beautiful. Everyday the sunset was beautiful, pink, orange, and purple and it said the sunset would be 15% chance of a beautiful sky. I deleted it after 6 false predictions.

Biggest waste of time

1
Purchased this to help predict sunrises/sunsets. Paid for full version. App won't let me add multiple locations. Predictions always look the same no matter the weather out. Don't waste your money until they fix it.

You only get a same day prediction for your current location. If you want to see other locations or days, you must pay a subscription fee. Just use the internet. It’s better.
