Awesome app and support!

This app is perfect for any event you need to know about times for sunlight. Perfect for photography and the curious. Setting alarms is great because you can set them to alert you before the event actually happens, giving you time to prepare. I love that, especially for getting great photos during golden hours.
The support is amazing, too. The developer worked with me on an issue, troubleshooting and even made a new version for testing.
Turns out, it was just the typical reinstall of the app that was required, like so many other apps I’ve had. But his patience and dedication were above and beyond what I ever expected. Awesome!! Thanks again!!

Sorry that you had some difficulties getting the alarms setup. It turns out even on iOS deleting the app and reinstalling it fixes issues occasionally. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Simple and Direct

No frivolous information that distract a half asleep mind or confronts a waking mind, with needless details.

Important? Yes. Why? Waking alone often in a strange place three nights per week, I want reliable, direct information about time, light, dark and basic weather where-ever I am sleeping, at home or in a 1,000 hotels for business — on the consultant’s highway, city-to-city and town to town.

This app delivers.

Thank you for your feedback!

It’s very pretty, but I used it as one of my complications and can’t make sense of it. The graphic doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the current time i. e. It’s now 8pm on June 25 and the complication on the watch, if you were to read it like the app, would make it look like it’s the middle of the night. Maybe the complication is to read like if a watch face was superimposed on the graphic, while in the phone app and the watch app (not the complication) the current time is always straight up, like 12 o’clock or north on a compass it’s inconsistent and confusing.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback and sorry that the complication let you down. This issue has been finally resolved with the release of watchOS 7. Sorry it took so long but now with the SwiftUI complications it should be reliable as rock.
