Ratings and Reviews
as someone who bought this from being annoyed that rizon hasn’t updated their golden hour app in years and it’s annoying that they use black text in the iphone widget page in dark mode, i was hoping this app would fix that simple issue. it does.. but it also introduces a highlighted “title area” of the widget which breaks the cohesiveness of all the dark mode widgets. i want to bang my head against a wall. devs please make it look as if it was a stock apple widget i will cry with happiness its all i want from a golden hour app. elegant and straight forward widget to tell me the sunset
Edit* Dev responded the morning of about my nitpicky suggestion. Happy to see they care about their customer base. If you just want a clean and cohesive app to tell when sundown and sunrise is, it’s perfect. Widget looks great with dark mode and has a timer.
I’ve been using this app for a while now. I love the new “extra dark” mode! I also love that they fixed the bug where it wouldn’t automatically adjust or save the time zone.
This app has improved greatly!
**Feature Suggestion for Future Updates***
Put a calendar function in the app that allows the user to select any day and see the golden hours for the selected day!
So if today is Oct 16, 2019, then I could open the in-app calendar, select Jan 14, 2020 and see the times for that day.
Thanks for the great app! I use it regularly!
Great investment for traveling photographers!
First of all I love app. It's clean, very helpful and it's the easiest way to take better photos because you put your subject in the best light right away. When booking clients locally and out of state it's the fastest way to get sunrise and sunset times as well as magic (golden) hours. When booking weeks, months or more than a year in advance you can get times sorted. Very helpful. Here is the best part...I emailed them with a few suggestions and they not only responded, but used an idea. They actually are real people behind this and I support this super helpful and handy app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
