Great app!

I use this app daily and have come to depend on it for my morning adventures to the beach.

I have deleted this app (truly deleted) but it is still showing up in my location services. How do I remove it?

Surprised me

I was skeptical, especially not knowing what drives the ratings. This morning the sunrise was forecasted for 74% (highest I’ve seen). Weather forecast called for mostly cloudy. Alpenglow was spot on, the sunrise was one of the best I’ve seen in a while. Well done.

Not always accurate but helpful

I use this app to see how the sunrise and sunset are forecasted. The app is not always correct. Some days it will say the sunrise or sunset will be great but turns out a bust. Other days it is the opposite. Each day is different. When the app is correct, the sunrises and sunsets photographed are awesome! It is little annoying to get up each to capture what is forecasted as a beautiful sunrise that turns out to be not so great and/or colorful. I would rate it 2.5 stars but I have to round up to 3 stars.

Still resets my notifications after every update

Stop doing this.

Being told to purchase again

I purchased a lifetime membership. Now, after a couple months, I’m being asked to purchase a subscription again. I feel like I may have been scammed by this app, so buyer beware.

Just what I needed

I just needed a simple app to let me know the magic hour events, and one that has a watch complication. This one is perfect! I won’t use most of the features but if nails the ones I need. Left a tip, appreciate the payment model!

Beautiful app and excellent information

I take time lapses of the sunset and this app helps me know when, where and if the sunset is going to be magical! Thank you for such a wonderful app.

Decent app

Just what I was looking for, hopefully they don’t harvest my personal data against mu will like most free apps but who’s really to say what happens with our data? Selling personal data is big business for many tech companies.
