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.
When you’re dealing with the weather, you’re dealing with lots of uncertainty. Understanding that these predictions are based on the weather is key to assessing the accuracy Kane usefulness of this app. Nothing is perfect predicting the weather, except hindsight. I tested this app for several weeks before paying for it. I also compared it to another site that gives daily forecasts of sunrises and sunsets. They were pretty comparable with their forecasts and accuracy. As a photographer, it is a worthwhile investment for the forecasts. No, it’s not perfect, but I think you have to be a special kind of thick in the head to expect weather based predictions to be 100% accurate. Another thing about this forecasting game, using the app can help you learn the tendencies in your area about how sunrises / sunsets develop. When they are going to peter out, or blossom into glorious colors. Using data to educate yourself and learn how to better predict a sunset, what a novel concept. 🙄 It’s a tool that helps me decide if I go shoot or not. With it, I have had more success getting pretty sunset shots. Therefore it’s worth it.
Can’t add other locations. Contacted but no reply. Was going to do premium but not now
It was wrong more than right. Got sick of using it and missing gorgeous sunsets for photography. I liked the tips and tricks they gave me more than the predictions. Uninstalled 👎🏻
Frequently gives forecasts for the previous sunrise or set, rendering it useless.
This app says the same thing every day and is very rarely accurate. The free version is a waste so don’t even think about paying for it!
So you will try to use the skycandy more than twicein a day, it will ask you to buy it. Why buying it is a scam; Each days prediction will continuously change. Mon - wed it tells me thursday night will be an amazing sunset 95%. Day of it drops to 30%. When you have the free version your prediction stays the same for the day. When you pay for the app, predictions are constantly changing by a huge variance of %, making the app totally useless Highly disappointed. What the heck were you guys thinking!
Everytime i check the wheels are spinning and never actually delivers the result.
Predictions are very inaccurate. There are days I’ve missed beautiful sunsets because this app predicted a lousy sunset. Got up early this morning to do a sunrise photo shoot, since Sky Candy’s prediction seemed pretty positive. Nope. The cloud cover is so high that the light is struggling to get through. No color whatsoever. I check Sky Candy fairly regularly and they always seem to be off...this is not a once in a while thing.
When you first open the app, you are greeted with a friendly guide that explains the core features of SkyCandy. Nice touch! From there, it's easy to make your first sunset quality prediction with an easy to find button on the main screen. The app will use weather data at your location to determine if your next even (sunrise or sunset depending on what time it is) will be beautiful or ugly. This is not foolproof - sometimes it's wrong, but most of the time it's right. It really depends on the weather! They look for certain things in the weather forecast that are good indicators of a beautiful sky at sunset time. So while it's not always accurate, it's better than stepping outside in the morning and taking a random guess. The premium subscription unlocks a lot of additional features, such as the ability to see the sunrise and sunset forecast for up to 5 days into the future, and for multiple locations. Also included is a handy widget, and more. The developer is very active and very helpful. I've had some issues with bugs and crashes, and contacted him using the in-app support. It's always been taken care of fairly quickly and issued an app update or helped me out with any problems. He's a photographer himself that is just trying to help other photographers out there achieve better photos with this innovative idea. If you go on the developer's website, you see that he also gives back to charity a portion of all subscriptions to help make the Earth a better place. Very thoughtful. Overall, this has been an incredibly useful app for me and has vastly improved my landscape photography. No longer do I have to drive around aimlessly for hours while hoping for a good sunset. Now I can know ahead of time if the sky is going to be beautiful at sunset time, and then I can head out to my best spots to take beautiful sunset photos I can fill my instagram feed up with! I highly recommend this app to all outdoor photographers, or anyone at all that frequently watches beautiful sunsets.
