Great utility for daylight aficionados

Love it. Simple, adds value to my phone, and has continually improved since release without losing its vision.

Thank you for making this. Please add an optional subscription or tip jar so I can support it!

Developer Response ,

Hey Bob! Thanks so much for your kind review. You may be pleased to hear that in the v1.3.1 release, a new page has been added to the Settings view where you can learn more about my motivation for developing the app, and optionally leave a tip via In-App Purchase. (Thanks for the suggestion!)

Very cool!

I like looking at this app in anticipation of longer daylight coming this Spring and Summer. It tells you how much more daylight today has compared to yesterday, but that’s about it. I wish I could see more data - like how much more sunlight this week had compared to last week. Also, I wish I could compare locations. Like how much more sunlight does Los Angeles get today compared to Miami?

Developer Response ,

Hey Parankush! Thanks for the feedback and the suggestion about being able to compare locations; I’ve thought about allowing people to choose a location on a map instead of using their location data, which could also be a way to enable this idea. No promises, but this is on my mind!

Great app + a small suggestion

Great app, love the design. It would be phenomenal if the app would provide an option to enable automatic push notifications for sunset. I’d love to receive a notification 5 min before sunset each day, without me having to manually set the notification time 🙏🏻

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the kind review! I’m pleased to let you know that the feature you requested already exists. In the settings screen within the app:

1. Ensure “Enable daily notifications” is toggled on
2. Tap “Send notifications” and choose “Relative to sunrise/sunset”
3. Tap “30 min after sunrise” and from there you can customise the time offset, before/after, and sunrise/sunset parameters to your needs (5 min before sunset)

Hope this helps!
