Simple and Direct

No frivolous information that distract a half asleep mind or confronts a waking mind, with needless details.

Important? Yes. Why? Waking alone often in a strange place three nights per week, I want reliable, direct information about time, light, dark and basic weather where-ever I am sleeping, at home or in a 1,000 hotels for business — on the consultant’s highway, city-to-city and town to town.

This app delivers.

Thank you for your feedback!

It’s very pretty, but I used it as one of my complications and can’t make sense of it. The graphic doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the current time i. e. It’s now 8pm on June 25 and the complication on the watch, if you were to read it like the app, would make it look like it’s the middle of the night. Maybe the complication is to read like if a watch face was superimposed on the graphic, while in the phone app and the watch app (not the complication) the current time is always straight up, like 12 o’clock or north on a compass it’s inconsistent and confusing.

Thanks for the feedback and sorry that the complication let you down. The complication is meant to be read exactly the same was as in the app. It does however get stuck sometimes. It has to do with how the system interacts with the complication and depending on reasons (too low battery on the watch etc.) the system might skip requesting complication updates from Solar Watch. This is usually temporary and the complication starts working as expected in a few hours. This also seems to be more common after the app is freshly installed and stabilizes quickly. Sorry that I don't have a better solution right now (I tried). I am however working on a big complications update for watchOS 7 coming out this fall. That should fix things for good. Cheers, Engin Kurutepe.


Poor design

I’m a subscriber and would like to see twilight times for upcoming dates, but the slider on the calendar view is so tiny and sensitive that it’s impossible to choose a date and then tap on a node so you can see a different time of day (ie any time other than Solar Noon). The minute you touch the screen, the date shifts. Very frustrating. Please consider putting in a real date selector. It would also be nice to choose a different alert tone other than the iOS default alert sound.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm already working on improvements on the date selection in the yearly overview. The next update will make much progress on that front. Please feel free to send more feedback directly to
