requires following permissions on your android device.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

  1. guest-avatar

    Super-great, cool, and useful app. I didn't even think that such a great app exists at all. Specially the notification feature and the clean beautiful UI, without the presence of ads, are important and noticeable. Strongly recommended. Only one issue with the app: There's no way to manually enter the geographical coordinates of a select location. Please add this feature in future updates. Thanks in advance.

  2. guest-avatar

    Decent app for what it's designed for. There is however, one GLARING exception (no pun intended): this app sorely needs a dark mode!! Lack of a dark mode is the reason for the one star rating. It would otherwise receive a 5 Star rating. Please get a dark mode!

  3. guest-avatar

    Quick and easy to use - I have several other apps with the same info, but this one is my first go-to due to its simple, legible interface

  4. guest-avatar

    Accurate and useful app for quickly looking at the calculated Golden hour in your area. It's been very helpful in timing my photography with the best light possible.

  5. guest-avatar

    Good app, but: The times on the right are not aligned, nor is it clear what they mean, nor is it mentioned/explained in the help (Info). It should be possible to change order of the locations.

    Unfortunately after update to android 9 widget stopped update rise&sunset info... Other widgets work good... Even after reboot often empty widget...without any text. I have to change app (

  7. guest-avatar

    I love this app and I'm not even a photographer. I can add cities and see how long their days are. It also has a variety of cities above and below the equator. I can change the date and see when the sun sets or rises on any day of the year, how long the day is etc. It's also helpful with the twilight hours because my husband and I ride a motorcycle and we don't want to get caught riding west when the sun approaches the horizon. This app explicitly says what times to avoid riding west.

    I love this app. It helps me plan down to the minute my sunrise and sunset Photography sessions

  9. guest-avatar

    So far, the times indicated have worked for me, both for the golden hour and the blue hour in the evenings.

  10. guest-avatar

    Good app but could be much better. Does what it's supposed to - notifies you of golden hour. A few additions would make this a great app tho such as... - ability to choose a different notification sound for different notification events. - ability to set more than one notification per event (ie. 15 mins before sunset and actual sunset) - add events for the different twilight times so that you can notify for the end of astronomical twilight for astro photographers.

  11. guest-avatar

    Just wish I was able to drop a pin somewhere instead of having to edit locations. for example: I'm planning a trip to lake Erie, and would like the ability to drop a pin in one of the parks to help plan the trip. Add this functionality and the remaining 2 stars will be added.

  12. guest-avatar

    Works as described and easy to use. very simple and intuitive layout that makes for a quick and easy look whilst in the go or planning a shoot. It saves you alot of time if you know you're going to miss Golden Hour before you get to the location.

  13. guest-avatar

    Does exactly what it says and then some! dead simple to use and it works perfectly. I wholeheartedly recommend it if you want/need to know what form of daylight any given city is getting.

  14. guest-avatar

    Disappointed notifications don't work. Location kept changing to San Francisco. Would it work if you added Chicago to your list? Who knows? I added my location, but the notification kept changing it's location. I know, you told me Samsung is the devil, but I was hopeful. I've had many apps Google told me were not compatible, and they worked perfectly. Nice looking anyway. I guess I'll just use Sun Alarm for now.

    I just wanted to get a notification an hour before sunset every day. The notifications never went off.

  16. guest-avatar

    I like the 'golden hour' and 'blue hour' designations. This app helps me understand the difference in dawn, dusk, and twilight which I often confused in the past.

  17. guest-avatar

    App work great, information is easy to read and has always been accurate. Only suggestion would be making it easier to look at times for different locations, currently there isn't an easy search function.

  18. guest-avatar

    Christian Dysthe


    Amazing free app to keep track of the sun, sunset, sunrise and other parts of the day. It also has notifications based on the sun's movements in as many locations as you want. Great!

    George Plucienkowski


    Great app to determine the phases of light for photography.

  20. guest-avatar

    Light, but complete app with time table and map. Took me a while to figure out that the third time listed is the duration of a period.

    Albert Vaca Cintora


    It would be useful to further split the "day" phase, eg adding the hours where the sun rays are more direct and you are more likely to get sunburn, so one can avoid being outside during those hours.

  22. guest-avatar

    Love this app. I am a nature photographer and outdoorsman so this app gives me such valuable data in order to take photos depending on what light I want.

  23. guest-avatar

    This app is perfect for photographer who wants to shoot photo at sunset, its give you more time to prepare and set up the camera , i like it

  24. guest-avatar

    Rokas Šleinius


    I just can't believe this app does not have moon phase info, that would be all in one! It's just more lines of displayed information :) other than that this app is 5/5!

  25. guest-avatar

    Tells you when the best light is, the map feature shows the direction of the sunrise and sunset. Does the job and is easy to use.
