    This used to be the best app going for predicting stunning sunsets and sunrises, I'm not sure if they've recently changed their astronomical/weather source or algorithm but it now misses the ball every time, it's been like this for over 9 months. I understand predicting weather patterns is a very hard thing to do but it seems like features like the 'expressive sky' should maybe discontinued when this inaccurate.

  2. Janne Kärki-avatar

    In my opinion, this is best for moon and sun tracking. I like the interface. Simple enough. I haven't read the weather reports here, but they work with some accuracy. Quite OK, does not contain distracting ads..

  3. Matthew Thogerson-avatar

    Matthew Thogerson


    Really love this application super helpful for finding good environments in which to shoot photos. The only thing that I'm rating it poorly on is that I cannot upgrade to Pro! Every time I attempt to do so it says item not found on the Play Store. Please figure this out guys I want to use additional Weather Services!

  4. David Martin-avatar

    This was a cool free app, but now the essential features I had used like changing the date and zooming in and out on the diagram have been disabled. Maybe in the paid Pro version, idk, but others have said they cannot upgrade to Pro anyway. An interesting and useful app for me has become useless. Too bad.

  5. Maria Kulik-avatar

    Personally, i found this app reasonably easy to use, at first you have to have a bit of a browse around the app to find out where everything is but after the initial first use; it's quite simple. I would love to find a way to receive notifications for times such as glden hour (if possible) :)

  6. René Nieuwburg-avatar

    René Nieuwburg


    Dates and location is time zone and DST, but the golden hour times are without such indication therefore leaving us in doubt what it really is. Not really useful when you try to plan here and now before going there and then. let's see if there is a better app. Nolonger allows searching location - coordinate information and you need to enter manually and search them using Google Maps pin drop.

  7. Johnny De Gruyter-avatar

    Johnny De Gruyter


    Setting a different location then where you are, does not work. Can't press ok.

  8. Marco Cupelli-avatar

    Does not work anymore - no location updates via GPS (always searching for signal) no name resolving if locations and also no search by location names (no internet connection) and yes I checked all permissions as this was once working

  9. David Drover-avatar

    What has happened to this app? It used to be brilliant now i cant get weather or locations. Constant errors for months. Such a shame.

  10. Jacek Rogoz-avatar

    I can change the date to see Sun and moon position at a given date and location but I have no idea how to change the time. When I'm trying to hold the sun icon to spin it the map is moving instead of sun. What am I doing wrong?

  11. Mario !-avatar

    Great gui and unique condition options. Missing widget. Would like to combine more conditions with and/or logics as I use an app for sun tracking between fixed objects.

  12. Rosa Scipion Jimmink-avatar

    Rosa Scipion Jimmink


    Last year it worked completely fine but since a few months the time of the sunset or rise won't change. Even if I change the date...

  13. Casey Boles-avatar

    Something has happened recently where it won't allow me to look up a location by name alone anymore I have to get actual coordinates.

  14. Alan Bromiley-avatar

    This was an excellent tool, but for some reason I can no longer search for places. If I type in a location it does not seem to be able to get the coordinates.

  15. MUHAMMAD WAHAB-avatar

    literally the best free app that would be beneficial for astro photography. kudos

  16. Guccifer _-avatar

    GPS problem. App doesn't work.

  17. A Google user-avatar

    Is this project dead? I love it and i wanted to buy pro version, but gplay says item not found.

  23. Chris Thodd-avatar

    Awesome planning app!

  24. AdrianAldousPhotography-avatar



    bad app wont let me even add my location

  25. Paul bradbury-avatar

    good tool all round

  26. PIISU TYPE-avatar

    can't open app

  27. Robert Maloney-avatar

    Actually it is an excellent App, however when I try to purchase the full version it tells me the transaction was cancelled. What gives? An enthusiastic 5 stars if you can figure out why on earth it would be doing this to people. You are losing out on revenue.

  28. Isaac Ullah-avatar

    This is a great little app. It exemplifies the principle of "do one thing, but do it great." If you are a landscape photographer, you will find this app to be essential. My only complaint of that I would love to be able to have the map orient to the internal compass. That would make it much easier to pre-visualize exactly where the sun/moon is going to rise or set when standing in a location and using the app. Other than that, it's pretty perfect! Thanks devs!

  29. Al Johnson-avatar

    It's a good concept. The app has a cpl of issues tho. 1 - it can't seem to handle clocks going back for winter time and all displayed times in my timezone are currently wrong, and 2. The saving of locations is a bit messy, it'd be nice if they were at least displayed in alphabetical order. Other than that, good job!

  30. Wayne Enright-avatar

    No update since early 2017 concerns me that this app will not be progressed any further..would love to have a widget feature or lockscreen notifications to prompt certain conditions are approaching etc. Huge potential, no interest from the developers clearly and not all the whether sources work!! And where has pro gone? Paid for pro but now gone from app store so can't recover on my new phone

  31. Shawn Sochaski-avatar

    I can't even purchase the full paid version. It says transaction was canceled. It is such a shame. I wanted to support you guys.

  32. Trisha Presnell-avatar

    Trisha Presnell


    Love the app, but since they updated the weather, none of the information pertaining to weather works. Keeps saying it can't access weather. Worked great before update. Help?!?

  33. Scott H.-avatar

    Great tool to track the Sun and Moon. Be great if a conditions could be linked to a location. Would like to support, but the transaction is denied.

  34. Jekaterina Bakane-avatar

    Jekaterina Bakane


    It looks amazing, lots of information on display. Really handy to have this app! Would definitely recommend to my fellow photographers 🤗

  35. N HI-avatar

    Great app until you need to change to a new device. No app export data option. I have 200 photo site points and have not found in Android where the database is stored. Samsung smart switch did not move the database.

  36. Mike Marsh-avatar

    Just great! This app belongs in every enthusiast's, or serious photographer's bag of tricks; and it's free! I'd so love to pay for this app, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

  37. A Google user-avatar

    As a tool to plan ahead for outdoor photo shoots its useful. 😆 However I wonder if its possible to add a pressure filter for changes in millibars.

  38. Timo Saarinen-avatar

    Good app but has only partial support for 24 hour clock.

  39. Erwann Colcanap-avatar

    This is a great app plus it's free! Congrats to the devs

  53. E O-avatar

    The app is great! I would buy the pro version if I could find a better map system. Although Google map shows our area perfectly clear, it looks quite blurry on this app. Other than that, it's rather useful for me.

  54. Gavin Malavolta-avatar

    Gavin Malavolta


    Used to love this app, but it doesn't work anymore. It stopped finding my location recently. I reinstalled but now it just defaults to Paris, which is fairly pointless since I don't live there. I haven't changed my phone settings and my GPS is on, so I can't see why it should stop working. So unless it starts working again this app gets zero points from me.

  55. Joy Ilo-avatar

    This app is insane! I couldn't believe the details that it can offer. Time for sunrise/sunset, duration, blue hour, golden hour. How is this possible? I don't usually do reviews. This is my first time reviewing an app -- Exsate deserves to pop my app-reviewing-cherry.

  56. Dan D-avatar

    The Time Zone/DST, Daylight Saving Time, for the United States is wrong. I tried to set my location, got it wrong, and I could not delete it or change it. If this isn't an issue for you, the rise and set calculations do seem accurate.

  57. David Benitez-avatar

    Tells me when the golden and blue hours windows (beginning to end) and in which direction the sun will set and rise. Just what I needed. It's not exactly precise but close enough.

  58. Rob Smith-avatar

    Amazing app with lots of information. Crashes when trying to open the calendar though so can't plan further than the current day. With any luck this can be fixed.

  59. Damian Haworth-avatar

    I used to use this app for planning trips out, sometimes days in advance, but now the calendar causes the app to crash on my phone (xperia z5 compact). Still useful - but not as good for forward planning. :-(

  60. Wil Moore-avatar

    This app is amazing from first glance. No bad landscapes here or model shoots using natural lighting or one light source with the sun here.

  61. Avel Prasetya-avatar

    I still confused what the blue or red line mean. Im still learn photography..thanks, sorry bad english

  62. Kiren Thorpe-avatar

    This is a must have photographer companion. It gives you weather in your area or where your shooting and gives you light info for type of shot you are looking for. This app is going to help me get some amazing shots. Cheers guys.

  63. Rudra Banerjee-avatar

    Good. Actually very good. But the ageing interface is a sore to look at. I wonder, if the app is already dead!

  64. Amanda Owens-avatar

    This app was great until about 6 months ago when it started crashing as soon as it was opened. Since that started, it's become useless.

  65. Ewen Bell-avatar

    Used this app for a long time but have had to change my review due to ongoing problems. App has been broken for twelve months now and have not been able to get a reply from the developers. Any attempt to pick a date causes the app to crash. Every single time.

  66. WintonMc-avatar

    This should be on every photographers smartphone. Infact, it's almost good enough to be a reason to get a smartphone if you don't already have one.

  67. A Google user-avatar

    The best app for planning your photography trips! Gives me real help choosing photography spots under various lighting conditions and predicting sun and moon position when to take the shot

  68. A Google user-avatar

    When I go to select the calendar, the app crashes.

  69. Riki Risnandar-avatar

    It was working like a charm, but now I can't set the date, every time I try, it crashes

  72. A Google user-avatar

    Good all around golden hour app. I'd recommend making more clear diagram, but for other than this, this is excellent landscape photographer app!

  73. Kevin Hodges-avatar

    This is a very slick piece of software. It has a great set of features and a beautiful user interface that is fast, responsive, and easy-to-use.

  74. Kim Forssén-avatar

    It's a fine copy of Photopills but tapping the date/time button crashes the app. Please fix!

  75. Sachin Balan-avatar

    Finally a complete package of info in one place. Thank you for making this app. Love to see it on Android 7.0 Nougat too.
