Pathetic

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

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.

In app subscription

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.

Worth it.

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.

Disappointed

Can’t add other locations. Contacted but no reply. Was going to do premium but not now
By Lavendarone

I was excited about it. But meh.

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 👎🏻

Gives past forecasts

Frequently gives forecasts for the previous sunrise or set, rendering it useless.
By frustrated photoer

Not good

1
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!
By Kris12678

Total scam do not purchase

1
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!
