requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using 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 approximately where you are.

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.

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.

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

In-App billing
In-app Billing on Google Play provides a straightforward, simple interface for sending In-app Billing requests and managing In-app Billing transactions using Google Play.

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. Lore Iodi-avatar

    With its latest update, this app doesn't display any data unless you switch on your GPS location. I don't like this behavior and I expect some serious clarification or roll back, especially since we didn't have to activate the GPS previously. Otherwise I will be forced to uninstall. There are other apps that do the same job quite well without requiring this kind of unnecessary location tracking. I want to believe it's only a bug, so please fix it and allow for location saving as before.

  2. John Steele-avatar

    Nice app. Open it often to see the times for sunrise and sunset. Simple to use.

  3. Jerry Vaughn-avatar

    Latest revision installed and still cannot set a location! P.S. Have emailed developer several times and only one response some months ago... Cannot set a location for trip planning. Had to clear all data before the new version would get location from phone gps. I'm n the second update since first reporting the problem and still no fix. In fact, now it won't save a gps location. I really want to like this app but I may have to give up on it soon πŸ˜”

  4. Kate Ken-avatar

    Good app no problems with it. it's nice to know exactly when the sun's up

  5. Daniel Sczepansky-avatar

    Daniel Sczepansky


    Very useful for photo and video work. Maybe some link to weather sites could be useful as well as remaining daylight/golden hour /blue hour timer. Additionally an overlay on the map with direction of the sun shining could be useful as I'm filming walks and plan my routes with the sunlight from behind me

  6. Gregory Allen Mansheim-avatar

    Gregory Allen Mansheim


    Simple and elegant! No adds, no trash. I would like to humbly beg for an alarm/notification for each of the values, but that is not part of the original design, not a criticism. Good work. Brilliant.

  7. Jonathan Adams-avatar

    I use this app often, it's very helpful for photography times

  8. Mike Hayward-avatar

    Good app but widget doesn't work properly. It shows unknown location and the times are all wrong. Doesn't look like it can be changed either.

  9. Allen Morrell-avatar

    App can not be moved to external SD memory. This is because the programmer did not include the code to allow the end user to move the app to external SD memory.

  75. Uchi Deshi-avatar

    I wouldn't be without this app and recommend it to all my friends, photographers or otherwise, the light around blue hour is magical.

  76. Chengming Wang-avatar

    not enough feature. switched to another app. Reply: it's simple and clean, I can give this credit. Except for a photographer to a new location (or to any location), sunrise/sunset angle is also essential. If it's only the hours I need to know, I could just Google the sunrise/sunset hour then the gold hours are obvious, no app needed. Reply 2: Great! Thank you for considering this.

  77. Ryan Toney-avatar

    Please stop asking me to rate the app. I have not cleared the app data or uninstalled the app yet it continues to ask me to rate every couple of days. Developer states it is supposed to store that we have rated, but it doesn't appear to stick. Not sure if this is happening to everyone or only on specific phones. For the record I'm using a OnePlus 7 Pro.

    just an amazing app that is super helpful.

  81. Alien-avatar

    I have to agree with @Paolo Constantino over the theming, I hope we see an option to pick from a selection of themes. I'd also be willing to pay a small fee for a theme that suits my personal tastes.

  82. Nick McNamara-avatar

    Okay but could be improved. my main four complaints and suggestions for improvement are as follows: 1. you have to click into the calendar to change the date. If you could swipe left/right to go back/forwards by one day that would be great. 2. the moonphase is shown by a picture, but doesn't tell you if it is waxing or waning. Please add description with %. 3. you have to guess when full/new moon is. Please add a picture to the calendar page. 4. add ability to change location.

  83. Afzal Rahman-avatar

    great app, minimalist design

  84. Bart Pond-avatar

    (have yet too test it enough too rate it but you asked for ideas/suggestions, so here goes!) Add interesting photo opportunities into the calendar; for example natural phenomena like meteor showers, eclipses, migration patterns (?) or community events like parades, Arts & Music festivals or other events with potential interesting photographic subject matter would be a wonderful addition!

  85. Chitra Vimal-avatar

    fine need to improve backround colour

  86. Alex Harrison-avatar

    Good app, main screen is very aesthetically pleasing and tells me exactly what I need to know. I will say a few small, nitpicky things though, having the settings icon in both the top right and in the left menu panel is a bit redundant. Also The highlighting on the menu panel is a bit inconsistent, as I'll leave the settings menu and be back at the home screen, I'll pull the panel back out and settings will still be highlighted.

  87. WD B-avatar

    Huge oversight to not allow landscape display format for tablets. I use Android tablet for a lot of photo tools, and of course, often i need to set it on a table or stand. I'm extremely annoyed by having to pick it up and turn it to interact with the app. I know what device it is. I have multiple devices. it switches uncontrollably on the tablet.

  88. A Google user-avatar

    Nice app. Simple and light. The way a utility app should be. With that said, being a photographer myself, whats the possibility of adding some truly basic weather data for the same location that the app knows as 'current location'. What I'm thinking is just to do a query from a weather service for some basic forecast data such as: Hi temp Lo temp Probability of precipitation Cloudy-ness (if data exists) Winds All things that a photographer would need to know. ;)

  89. Adam Mcmanus-avatar

    Does exactly what it says. Great app.

  90. Matthew Mu-avatar

    New icon is unsightly.

  91. A Google user-avatar

    Excellent app! One minor note (just a question, really): In the (v2.0) "Theme" setting, are the labels identifying each of the two available choices ("Bali Mountain" and "Moonlight Sky") reversed, in relation to the background images actually displayed by the app? (Moto G4+, Android v7.0)

  92. Paul Anthony-avatar

    It's Ok but keeps asking me for a rating. I've noticed that after opening the app after connecting to wifi I get prompted for a rating, However, if I never connect to wifi I don't receive the prompt. Other than that seems to do exactly what is says it does. Developer please fix this annoying behaviour and I'll give you more stars. Cheers πŸ‘πŸ‘

  93. Joseph Nappi-avatar

    The first golden hour without being looked to a 24h clock. Would love to see widget support for this, have the times right on the home screen. An alarm button could be super useful, tick would you like to be reminded or something so you always are informed. Otherwise Great App.

  94. Timbo B-avatar

    Great, so simple!

  95. Hamid Al-Timami-avatar

    Hamid Al-Timami


    most apps that require location for services will ask you for it. this apps will pick the location you are and give you the timings as accurate as it can be. am a photographer and i rely on this app to determine the golden and blue hours not forgetting the sun rise and sun set times !

  96. Isaiah Costner-avatar

    Great app! Would be perfect if it included a time zone adjustment feature (for when you are traveling and researching sun positioning for another timezone). I'm assuming it currently just uses your own timezone to report times for other zones. Thanks!

    Doesn't work: couldn't get it to find my location. uninstalled. galaxy s8. Have tried re-installing app to see if that would help. Nope.

  98. adsens hany-avatar

    great job . here is a new feature idea that will help make this app even better . to add reminder so we wont miss golden hours..

  99. Mike Mize-avatar

    If you are looking to take blue hour or golden hour photography this is the app for you. It is simple easy to use and the information is straightforward as to the times you can take these photographs.

    Really handy app with a great appearance. The developers have done a fantastic job at providing a useful tool for anyone with a camera. Well thought out you can tell these guys have put a lot of thought into it.
