Sundial is the app you didn't know you needed, showing vital info about the sun and moon any time, anywhere. Never wonder when the sun will set or rise again! Tracking the sun and moon is something people have done for thousands of years but it's never been easier than it is today with Sundial. Sundial puts solar and lunar information into the palm of your hand and, thanks to the Apple Watch app, onto your wrist as well! Sundial is an app designed to give everyone access to the sun and moon in ways they don't normally have it. Perfect for runners, hikers, campers, boaters, sailors, pilots, gardeners, farmers, photographers, film/tv production crew, astronomers, astrophotographers, solar installers, and travelers of all kinds. Sundial is an app for anyone who just needs to know when it'll get light and dark. Sundial provides a one-of-a-kind display of the sun and moon's rise and set cycle over the 24-hour day. As the seasons change, the yellow Òsun is outÓ arc informs you of the precious daylight hours, shrinking during winter months and expanding as summer approaches. The white inner arc represents when the moon is visible in the sky. Civil, nautical, and astronomical twilights are also shown on the solar dial in shades of blue. Create alerts for one of 24 different solar and lunar events and Sundial will tell you about them Ð without you ever having to open the app. The 24 events that support notifications include: - Sunrise, solar mid-morning, solar noon, solar mid-afternoon, sunset, and solar midnight - Civil twilight (dawn/dusk), nautical twilight, and astronomical twilight - Moonrise, lunar noon, moonset, and lunar midnight - Moon phases: full moon, new moon, first quarter moon, and last quarter moon - Astronomical seasons: March equinox, June solstice, September equinox, and December solstice All notifications can be customized to alert you minutes, hours, and even days before an event takes place. Sundial can give you plenty of notice that you need to be ready for a sunrise, sunset, and more. Like to walk your dog for 30 minutes before dusk? Sundial can help you with that! There's more, too! TIME TRAVEL Use Sundial's 24-hour wheel to see where the sun and moon will be today, tomorrow, and any other time you choose. Use gestures on iPhone and iPad to scroll through dates. Or jump to a specific date with iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. WIDGETS Sundial features 35 different home and lock screen widgets. Most are customizable.

Can you Please Add Lunar And Solar Eclipses To Sundial?
In my quest (I’m a librarian) for an app that would display daily and monthly solar and lunar phases, I did a little research and found this one was very well-rated over and over for its breadth of data, its friendly interface, and its features. Since this app kept floating to the top, I downloaded it and I have been a Basic user for a few months. I just love it, and I find myself using it often. It is deceptively simple, due to its clean design, but packed with information, which I enjoy browsing. Some practical uses: • I like to know when the full moon is coming up for viewing (and sometimes to confirm a string of bizarre behavior, although that seems to have ramped up to “daily” in 2022). • When we’re working in the yard, it’s great to see how much daylight we have left. • When we’re traveling and want to view a sunrise or a sunset, we can see the time for that, no matter where we are in the world. • I have a daily alert set for dusk, to remind me to bring in our suet and birdfeeders, before they are accosted by marauding raccoons from the woods. • The app is also a terrific learning tool, both for us, ourselves, and for us to use as we help introduce our 5-year-old granddaughter to these natural, ancient rhythms and phases. Very pleased - a great app. I plan on upgrading for more personal tinkering and preferences. Highly recommend!
This app just gets better and better. The Lock Screen widgets work very good and have the best selection to fit any plan. The amount of information is amazing.
I dont like the fact the developer again wants to charge $6 after I had bought the premium few years back that is supposed to give access to all, now to use lock screen widgets, I have pay again!!! Not good business practice I would like to see more widgets and alerts for solar and lunar eclipses added as a value add if you are to ask for more money from premium buyers again! I will up the stars if this is added or promised in the very near future!
EDIT: the issue has been fixed! Thank you! Love this app 🙂🙂🙂 ~~~ I primarily bought this app for the watch widget which is very nice when it works. For $15 i got the watch and homescreen widgets. Unfortunately, the watch widget is very buggy. It frequently doesn’t show the correct sun position for my location (but does once I click through to the watch app). Furthermore the widget completely goes blank/black once my series 7 switches to the always on (dimmer) display. It’s really too bad because I like the design and info of this app a lot. I tried emailing the app developer weeks ago but they never replied.
This app is perfect if you’re looking for something to help you plan photography, or videography, around the sun and/ moon! Along with everything about it being awesome, the customer service is great! They responded to my emails within 12-24 hours every time, if not way faster than that. And they were really nice! Hope this review is helpful.
This app is very useful and the interface is well laid out and beautiful! The support is excellent as well.
An otherwise great app! I like that it notifies you about different time periods in a way that others do not! My only complaint is that I wish the developer would add a specific time set for Blue (Magic) Hour and Golden Hour. I found a way to edit for Blue Hour in the mornings, but not for Golden Hour, it would just go immediately to Sunrise instead of that time period in between. Please add Blue(Magic) hour and Golden Hour for Mornings and Evenings! Thanks!
The iPad widget displays totally different times from app. At 11:30AM EDST it says Moonset in 5 hours at 3:54 AM.???
I was using the paid version 6 and just upgraded to 8.13. According to the upgrade notes we get 2 free widgets, I used the one that matched my widget setup under paid version 6 which was “I want it all”, which l chose. Now it says your 3 day trial has expired for the widget!?!? It doesn’t seem fair for a paid user to “upgrade” and lose features. Would’ve kept my older version & unfortunately there’s no way to go back.
