Doesn’t help at all

Firt time I’ve ever one star reviewed an app. Thought this would be beneficial for recreational/hobbyist photography. Figured I’d at least have a general idea what days might be worth getting into position for a sunset around my home. I know forecasting sunrise/sunsets quality is tricky business and can’t be 100% accurate days out, but I have yet to have one good sunset correlate with a forecast. The forecast 3-5 days out will predict an 80%+ great sunset, a lot of times it will still be forecasting that a day or two before, then without fail it will downgrade the forecast to poor or fair within 12-36 hours of the actual sunrise/sunset. And what is worse is the best sunrises and sunsets we’ve had this winter were not hinted at by the app at all. It’s a useless product that does a terrible job of the one thing it’s supposed to do. Unsure why it has so many positive reviews.

Widgets locked

Basic widgets locked behind a paywall? Hate to see it for what looked like an otherwise good app

Don’t know where it thought I was but the good/great sunsets were no different than the fair to bad. In fact some fair nights were excellent and some great nights were meh. I’d hard pass on this If you’re using it for photography.

Waste of money, not a good predictor of beautiful sunsets

There are dozens of sunset apps. I bought this one because I thought it would tell you if the sunset was actually going to be nice or not. Testing it out every time it says it’s going to be a great sunset, it’s not. Conversely, on days it says poor or fair, turns out to be a great sunset. Whatever they’re using to predict if it’s gonna be a nice sunset is not working just tells you when the sun sets and golden hour but you can do that for free with a dozen other apps, not worth the money.

Missed another great sunset because the app said it was poor

Great for Sunset/rise times. Poor for predicting sunset. I think have a random guess-o-meter I’d a sunset will be great or poor. Save you money. The upgrade is not worth it. L

Nice app

The pro version is well worth it. As an avid amateur seascape photographer, I use it every day. I really like the built-in sun angle map that helps me choose the best locations depending on time of year. Developer is independent and very responsive to support requests. Forecasts may not be perfectly accurate all the time, but that is to be expected. It’s still a great tool to have in a photographer’s arsenal.

By Bob up and kiss my butt

First week. 2.5/5 stars until further notice!

Confused as to what metrics the app uses to determine poor, fair, good, and great sunrise/sunsets. It’s not totally clear. Also, my lockscreen widget says the sunset is going to be “great” tonight, but when I click on that and the app opens - it says the sunset is going to be “poor” .. Also what is the “threshold” meter under forecast notifications? How do I determine what % to set it at?
