No nonsense and looks great.

Was looking for a simple app that gave me the time for golden hour depending on my location. This app does that, and it does it while looking great. Zero BS. Don’t be scared by the in app purchases, they are just donations to the developer, no locked features. First time I’ve seen this donation based model in an app on iOS, love it. I got to try the full featured app and donate after I verified it was what I wanted.

Great app, but Siri shortcuts...

I love this app being a photographer and seeing the best moments to take the shot, but it would be great if we could have more Siri shortcuts such as “golden hour Siri shortcuts.” I personally use the Apple Watch so see this apps notifications so it would be awesome if we could have golden hour and possibly blue hour Siri shortcuts. Thank you.

Very handy. Notifies daily of great times for photos and walks outdoors (sunrises and sunsets) without any maintenance required from app users. I am not sure how to use the extra features: photos and forecast but I enjoy the simplicity of the app's main feature and use the info it provides.
