Ratings and Reviews
I love Astronomy and wanted an app that not only provides great astronomical info, but one that has great complications and functionality for my Apple Watch. A tech reviewer had this app’s complications on his watch, and I just thought it looked beautiful. Now, I wasn’t really going to spend money on this app just because I thought the complications looked good, so I looked up any reviews I could find, and was really able to see all of the great info they provide within the app, not just on iPhone, but on the Apple Watch as well. In every way this app is worth the $7, especially if your an amateur/professional astronomer that’s constantly looking up into the night sky because this app has all the info you need when it comes to viewing conditions in one place. This is my first ever review on an app, and I was ready to tear into it for any reason I could find after spending $7, but I honestly do love this app and have zero complaints presently. One thing I hope to see in future updates is info pertaining to the planets in our solar system and other astronomical info. I know that’s not exactly the purpose of this app, but think it would be great to slightly expand the scope of this app, just like you track the Sun/moon positions, you could also track the planets’ positions. Just a thought. Good job Lumy.
Amazing support straight from the developer
Other have described what an amazing app this is and how useful it is to photographers. That’s true. I use it when I travel and am taking photos to help me keep track of the different types of light in the day. I find this especially useful with landscapes, when I find a really pretty spot and want to know when to come back for that great golden hour light.
But that’s not why I’m writing this review. I run or walk every day and use the Lumy complication on my Apple Watch so I always know when sunrise or sunset is. That lets me get up at the right time or get home from work in time. When I updated to WatchOS 10, everything changed, and I emailed the developer to ask what had happened. He was incredibly responsive, released a minor update to address my problem, then talked me through the settings to get it just right. How often to you get that kind of support these days? I am so impressed.
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.
I wish there was a sun compass widget for iPhone. That would look sick on the Home Screen and would be super useful!
