Golden Hour (also known as Magic Hour) is the time around sunrise or sunset when the light is often soft, warm, and perfect for capturing lovely visuals. With lumy, you can anticipate the best lighting condition and get ready ahead of time to take advantage of it. Lumy also shows you the weather information for the next seven days to plan things out.

Lumy notifications are highly customizable. You can schedule it for particular days or make them repeat automatically to your need. Titles like a photo shoot, morning walk, etc., can also be added to the notification.

Lumy now supports Siri Shortcuts. So ask Siri questions like - 'Is moon above the horizon?', 'When is next full moon day?', 'When is Golden Hour?'.

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.

Lovely app, complications are hit and miss

This app is lovely when it works. It truly is. But the experience on Apple watch is hit or miss as far as the complications go. The large complication you can have in the ‘Middle’, doesn’t always show information. Sometimes it will show cloud cover and rain chance percent, and it’s great when it does. Then sometimes, those date points (cloud cover and rain chance) will randomly disappear.
For the Siri watch face, you can select Lumy as a data source, but it never appears. However as Apple hasn’t touched the Siri watch face in some time, I don’t use it anymore so that’s not a big deal.

But; even so, I’ll never not have Lumy as my main Middle watch complication. It’s just so lovely to look at, honestly. The developer is also very responsive and proactive about fixing issues and I don’t doubt eventually the complication bugs will be worked out.
