Amazing piece of software!

This is an exciting app. Yes as others have mentioned there is another seasoned app out there already but this gem is clearly going to fill a niche of high functionality and ease of use! I am very grateful this app is here and can’t wait to see where it goes. I love the simplicity and polish on the app as well as new features not seen in other apps!
Thanks MIOPS team.

I own many MIOPS hardware Products and they all exceed expectations. The sun moon app looks to be their first software only solution and It looks as if they missed the mark here as this does only some of what the competitor does. I think it’s obvious who developed that other app, and the MIOPS app does not seem to bring anything new to the table here. Even if they did, they’re behind the curve and I for one will be staying with the (other) mature product. Sorry Miops - I’m a big fan and promote your products at my photo club meetings, but this time I say stick with what you do best - i.e. Hardware with a dedicated app - that’s your niche.

Hello papalou54,

Thank you for taking the time to experience our Sun Moon Expert (SME) app and sharing your feedback. At MIOPS, we're known for our hardware that simplifies the lives of those who shoot photos and videos. We've ventured into software solutions with the ambition of adding even more value to your photography journey.

We acknowledge that our app is currently in its early stages and hasn’t reached the maturity level of some of the market competitors. However, our intention isn't to replicate what's already out there, but to offer what others might not be able to provide to photographers. We're diligently working on and enhancing the SME app to ensure it serves unique benefits to our user base.

While you might perceive SME to be lagging behind well-known competitor apps at this stage, we're confident that in the coming year, you'll witness the distinctiveness and value SME brings to the table. Our plans and roadmap are well laid out, and we're in continuous consultations with photographers, collecting their feedback to shape our app.

We truly value your feedback, and if you'd like to share more insights or have further discussions, please reach out to us at Your support and patronage have been crucial for our hardware, and we hope to earn the same trust in our software endeavors.

Best Regards,
The MIOPS Team

Nothing of value without paying a monthly sub

This app is free but all the features you would want are hidden behind a pay walll leading you to a monthly subscription. Pass on this app.

You can check all Sun and Moon related data for current date and location without paying or making subscription.
