Sundial displays the sun and moon's rise/set cycle in a 24-hour ring. You can create alerts for solar/lunar events and see times for a different date or location. The Apple Watch app provides all the information available in the iPhone/iPad app, with text and graphical complications. No Internet is required to compute rise/set and other times: everything is calculated on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Times for dawn, sunrise, solar noon (sun peak), sunset, and dusk are displayed, along with daylight length. Moonrise, lunar noon (moon peak), and moonset are shown, along with lunar illumination and graphical moon phase. Unlike most apps, moon tilt is customized to your time and location. Create iOS notifications for common solar and lunar events, including: - Sunrise, solar noon, 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 There are many customization options for alerts, such as configuring a notification to be delivered minutes, hours, or even days before or after one of the event types above. For example, be notified one hour before sunrise. You can view rise/set times and moon phase for any date using time travel: jump to a specific date or use gestures to move forward and backwards in time. Free is limited to +- 7 days from today. With in-app purchase, you can view solar and lunar times for any location. You can search by place name, any portion of an address, or geographic coordinates. Locations can be favorited for easy reference. There are a number of settings to tweak location features, including the ability to mirror your selected location to your Apple Watch, the Today Widget, and even use for alert notifications. Sundial is great for runners, hikers, campers, walkers, boaters, sailors, pilots, gardeners, farmers, photographers, film/tv production crew, astronomers, astrophotographers, and travelers of all kinds. Parents, want a reminder that twilight is over and you need to get the kids inside? This app is for you. Like to take your dog on a walk 30 minutes for dusk? Sundial has you covered. Want to be notified the evening of a full moon? Piece of cake! Religious and yoga followers use Sundial to observe special requirements. For example, Ashtanga yoga practitioners do not practice near the new or full moon. With Sundial’s powerful moon phase alerts, you can be notified a few days before the new and full moon to take rest. Includes a Today Widget for quick access on the iPhone. The Apple Watch app includes several complications for 38mm, 40mm, 42mm, and 44mm watches. The iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch apps have full voice over support for all features.

I like the ability to know when the sun comes up and goes down because I am blind and cannot tell when I should turn on lights. This new version contains more relevant sounds for various times such as birds for sunrise and crickets for sunset. I haven’t checked them all out yet. It would be interesting to have sounds reflecting new moon and full moon, just for fun. Thank you for this functional and fun app.
Works great. I used the free version for a long time before upgrading. The paid version is only $2 (one time) and it lets you mimic snooze by setting multiple alarms.
Being blind, I think it’s good for me to know what the sun and moon are doing. Until I had this app, it was hard for me to know when it was getting dark and how dark it would be at night based upon the moon’s illumination. For safety reasons, I try not to be out alone for too long in certain places after dark. Besides all that, I think it’s kind of cool and interesting to know what the sun and moon are doing. Now it would be cool to know when the equinoxes and solstices are.:-)
Awesome info really cool to see equal parts day and night each month at full moon a sign which rules the night ... like a mini equinox and biblical first day of month setting sabbath every 7 days on the the 8th 15th 22nd 29th in the calendar put in the stars by your creator.
I’ve used lots of sunrise/sunset and astronomy apps over recent years. This one is my favorite by far. Ingenious design! It provides you with everything you need to know concerning solar and lunar activity. Love the alerts feature, you can control how little or how much you want to be notified about solar and lunar events as they occur. Get this app you will love it!
gives a ton of information using a very easy-to-grasp graphic display.
Love this app! It’s just what I’ve been looking for! The visual graphics are prefect, and all the different specifications of sunlight and moonlight are comprehensive. I like to know sunrise and sunset, also knowing dawn and dusk now has been a pleasant enlightening for knowing how much longer you will be able to see at night, and when you will start seeing daylight in the morning. And it’s come in handy countless times for knowing how much daylight is left if I’m working in the yard or want to take the trash out before it’s totally dark. Or when will the wildlife start stirring outside at the first light of dawn- know I know the time! Get this app- if you like watching the sky, connecting with Mother Earth- you will love it!!
This app is great. I’d be interested to see an update that includes alerts for solar hours.
