Ratings and Reviews
Where’s Support? (I found it! Edits)
Loaded “Daytime”, made all optional purchases available, authorized use of full time location services. It promptly located my position as Houston, Texas, over 100 miles from my actual location, as well as incorrect longitude and latitude. Website given with purchase could not be found. Rebooted phone twice with same faulty results.
(2 hours later)
Yes, support was hard for me to find, but the response was excellent. The response by email was swift even though it was a Friday evening after hours. Not only that, the response was courteous, with detailed information/explanation which solved my issues with the longitude/latitude and Houston listed at the top of the display. All of the reasons and features that I selected the Daytime APP work well and the information displayed, is accurate for my exact location. The inaccurate longitude/latitude/location is merely a tag to determine time zone and has no bearing on calculations based on actual exact location. I think that information should be covered in the APP description; and I would prefer to not see the incorrect location/latitude/longitude regardless of reason, but it is just an inconvenience for me. Any negative rating points for that was eclipsed by the “outstanding customer service” that was immediate, courteous, and thorough.
I like this app, but I had purchased it so that an alarm would wake me up each sunrise.... yes there is a very light-sounding alert sound available called “glass ding” but that will not wake me... they do have an option to choose a song from your phone but each time I click it, it pulls up a blank white screen that then immediately disappears and brings me back to the same page where I am suppose to choose the alert sound... I have iTunes on my phone... is this an unfortunate bug? Other than this (which is the whole reason I purchased the app), the app is nice.
*** Update: Via email the developer helped solve the issue, my “Media and Apple Music” switch was turned off in the Settings app.

Great for Shabbat
I’m so glad I found this app! The Shabbat settings are perfectly timed for candle lighting and Havdalah—exactly what I’ve been needing (and for those whose level of observance would not permit them to turn the alarm off, rest assured it only goes off once and does not repeat; no need touch the phone before Havdalah is done).
