Beautiful app

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.

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!

Clean and Polished for iOS16

This app is exactly what I needed. I travel frequently and need a quick way to check the sunrise, golden hour, and sunset times. This app lists everything out in a simple way without any clutter. It lets you customize the information you want to see too! Now with iOS16, the lock screen widget is an absolutely incredible addition. Now I can see a countdown at a glance straight from the lock screen! It is beautifully (not lazily) done too and actually looks nice. I have one suggestion/request! I wish the countdown widget had the option of counting down to multiple events. For example, have it count down to golden hour, then once that time has passed, have it count down to the sunset, then last light, etc. If this were a customizable feature it would be amazing. Overall very happy with this app!
