Lumy is a beautiful app that helps you capture gorgeous visuals by letting you keep track of the Golden hour (also known as Magic Hour). "What is Golden Hour ?" It is a period around Sunrise or Sunset at which the light is often soft, warm, and perfect for capturing beautiful visuals. Professional photographers, videographers swear it as the "time of day with the best lighting."

With lumy, you can anticipate the best lighting condition and get ready ahead of time to take advantage of it. Lumy shows you the weather information like cloudiness and temperature for the next 2 days to plan things out.

Lumy notification is interactive and dynamic. It comes with the realtime countdown to the notified photographic time. Also, you can snooze or postpone the notification for the next day.

With the filter option, you can configure the information only relevant to you. You can get Sunrise, Sunset, Morning and Evening golden hours, Astronomical, Nautical, Civil Twilight for your current location, or any locations worldwide. Except for the weather information, "Lumy" doesn't need an internet connection.

- Beautiful Widgets - Quick info about Sun's Current Position
- Current location & Any place around the world using maps
- Dynamic Interactive Notifications with the live countdown to the notified time.
- No Internet Connection needed for golden hour calculation
- Support for Apple TV
- Spotlight Search

Simplicity + Elegance = Best

I’ve been using Lumy for nearly 5 years and it is by far the best sun tracking app available. It has come a long way since its inception, now offering various tools like the sun arc, showing its position in the sky relative to time, the sun compass showing its position relative to the phone holder, new time details like daytime and nighttime durations as well as widgets for your Home Screen. This of course on top of all the old features that have been polished to fit the new UI and general design.

This app is super simple and ultra customizable. Once you set your location, you can then select which light periods you want to see and even what your app icon looks like!

There is also integration for Apple Watch 4 and newer. I have an Apple Watch 3 so I don’t get to take advantage of this yet but hopefully soon. There are various Watch Faces/Complications you can add to your Watch via the Lumy App!

I look forward to the future of Lumy. It is an invaluable tool for photographers, whether I’m shooting a portrait session or going out for another attempt at the Milky Way, Lumy has been there for me! Try it out for yourself and you’ll see! No app is perfect but this one definitely deserves 5 stars for ease of use, design, and features.

One wish:
I wish there was a sun compass widget for iPhone. That would look sick on the Home Screen and would be super useful!

Randomly, I was thinking to myself several weeks ago about having a nice app that looked pretty to check sunset (and nautical and astronomical sunset) for my observational astronomy. Literally not one full day later, I watched Apple’s keynote for the new iPad Air and Apple Watch. This app was featured as an app that was rebuilt for iOS 14, and I thought it was exactly what I was looking for! To be fair, the price is a tad higher than I think necessary for the functionality of the app. It would be cool to see more information rich widgets as well as better weather data and more visuals in the app. Just as an FYI, I bought the calculator app you made as well, I love your design language and I’ll buy any app you release, even if I don’t have a function for it. I’ll find a way to use it. Thanks for the great work, keep it up.

Watch Face Amazing-ness!

This app is a must have for any iPhone photographer! The addition of new watch face complications takes this app to the next level! This is one of those apps you didn’t realize you needed until you have it. Ten out of ten stars for this developer! I am really impressed by the simplicity of the app. Even adding the custom watch face is easy with watchOS 7. Thank you for a top notch app!
