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.

- No Internet Connection needed for golden hour calculation

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!

Feature Request!

Update Sept 25, 2020: I like to keep my location tracking services off, I like that Lumy allows me to manually select my home city on my iPhone, however I’m unable to set my home city on the Apple Watch S4! The search function only propagates Los Angeles as the only Southern California city (SoCal native btw). Also, could you please allow the toggle option for astronomical and nautical twilight on the Apple Watch. I remember seeing that watch feature before the major app update. Thanks!

Since IOS 14’s release last week, you guys have been doing a terrific job pushing updates out for the app. The Lumy watch face is my favorite, love the graphics and info. Also love the iPhone widget! Thank you for your attention to detail!

Really Great Companion for any Photographer

I love to use this app and get that perfect sunrise shot for my landscape photography and those sunset shots for some portraits. This app made it easy to know ahead of time what to look forward too and how long I have to set up my shots. Love the new rendition of the Watch Faces and I believe it makes this app even better. Great job.
