Sunrise. Sunset. Sometimes the sky lights up with amazing color, other times.. not so much. MySunset provides a sunrise & sunset forecast for the next 6 days as well as notifications for great forecasts. Don’t miss the next great sunset!

There are two ways to view sunrise/sunset data:

1 - An interactive map with an overlay showing the forecasted quality of upcoming sunrises and sunsets. By default, your current location is shown on the map. On this screen, you can toggle between sunrise and sunset, change the date, move the map around, and zoom in and out of the map.

This screen also shows:

- Sunrise/Sunset times
- Moonrise/Moonset times
- Moon phase
- Temperature for Sunrise/Sunset

2 - The second screen is a table showing a list of custom locations. Each location displays a forecast percentage, a corresponding color representing the quality of the sunrise/sunset, the time of the sunrise/sunset, and an icon representing the weather forecast. Tapping on a date will reveal additional weather information (% cloud cover, % chance of precipitation, wind speed, and temperature). This allows you to see if a sunset will be poor due to too much cloud cover or too little cloud cover.

Tap on a day to view weather data for that sunrise/sunset. Even if the sunrise/sunset isn't great, this data is meant to assist in accomplishing your unique artistic goals.

Current location:
- % cloud cover
- % chance of precipitation
- Wind speed
- Temperature

50 km (30 miles) East/West:
- % cloud cover
- % chance of precipitation

150 km (90 miles) East/West:
- % cloud cover
- % chance of precipitation

Tap the three dots to open more options:
- "View on Map" will open the location on the Map screen
- "Configure Alerts" allows you to receive push notifications when an upcoming sunrise or sunset is predicted to be colorful. In-app purchase required.

** A Pro subscription is required for notifications. Yearly and monthly subscriptions are available. Payment will be charged to your Apple ID Account at the confirmation of purchase. Subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase.

Good Concept, But Needs Polish

I like the concept of this app - it saves me from having to check the SunsetWx website every day. However, map navigation is laggy, it will only zoom out to a certain point (can't see my entire state, let alone a whole region), and for some reason I keep getting prompted for my iTunes password when using this app (I am logged into iTunes and no other app does this). I did pay for both in-app upgrades before testing the app (my fault), but I expect more from such a relatively expensive app.

A nice feature addition would be a customizable range for the notifications. For example, if I don't mind a short drive, it would be nice to know that there's a much better sunset 30 miles away.

Looks like it might be awesome... Super interested

I downloaded this and I LOVE that it runs free but the add overlay is so intrusive I cant even run to to the point where I can make the choice to buy or not. There should be a way to shut it off for maybe a week or a month. Let us see what these features you want me to purchase include! Then you might get me to buy it.

Yes, thanks for the response... the add overlays the text entry fields so the app is unusable. I am on a iPhone 10.

Hi there! Thanks for using the app and submitting feedback. I definitely don't want the free version to be difficult to use. Are you saying the ads are intrusive? They should stay up at the top of the app and never intrude. If it's acting differently, I definitely want to change that. Is that what you are seeing?

As for the notifications upgrade, I have considered adding the ability for a trial, maybe I'll look into that again. Thanks for the feedback!

No map or data

Installed this app after listening to the interview on the improve photography podcast and even after multiple tries there is absolutely no data being downloaded and the map is blank and there's nothing I can do about it.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! I'm so sorry you've hod a poor experience so far. Unfortunately, sunsetWx limits the amount of data per day and we have been running into that limit ever since the podcast. The limit gets reset every day, so the best possibility to see the data is later in the evening or early in the morning (assuming you're in the US).

I've also been working on some performance improvements, but Apple isn't accepting app changes over the holidays. I really hope to have this fixed soon. Thanks for trying it out!
