  1. John Gustard-avatar

    Awsome app, I wanted a solar app and this one is the best. Love the fact that it is 12 hour on the outer and 24hr on the inner. The latest dark mode is superb and now with the yellow hands it's so much better than the grey ones. It would be lovely to see a full screen option so it can be used as a night clock by the bed Thankyou for developing this This app just gets better, the latest features in the last several updates are excellent . Many thanks

  2. 1 1-avatar

    Best sunclock ever. Well made, has all you need. Beautiful graphics and dark mode. It can even show the golden hour for photographers. Thankyou for not having adds. Wishlist: It would be nice if it could show the moons position compared to the sun, as a small circle.

  3. Renee Bentley-avatar

    Nice setup. Too bad it shows the wrong time. One hour behind. **update: I found the settings to correct the time. Love it! Thanks for the reply. Started with 2 stars - now 5.

  4. Tamás ASICU-avatar

    Presently beautiful design, easy handling! Excellent tool to explain for kids how the lengths of the day (and night) changes over the year. Being able to set up any location is extremely useful. Many thanks for this app and congratulations!

  5. Mark Wroth-avatar

    Overall a pretty app that does pretty much what it says it does. My only complaint is that I found the night displays intuitive when viewing the 12 hour clock; I expected the times to line up with the clock, which they don't. Not really a problem. It just took me a while to understand the display. Some suggestions: allow the "Home" and "Abroad" labels to be customized; allow an abbreviation for which twilight option is displayed; provide a UTC display option.

  6. Kaya Karakaya-avatar

    Great concept for those who follow sunrise and sundown. I placed midday in the center, and the nighttime on top, so my clock looks strange but very practical.

  7. R Freeman-avatar

    This is the best clock for showing sunrise, sunset and twilight. I tried many, but this is hands down the absolute best! Beautifully implemented. (But the solar compass doesn't work in the Southern Hemisphere... it's a mirror image of what it should be.) ***** Yes. A mirror image with the North-South pointer as the axis of symmetry. And then the North-South pointer reversed. ****** Still using it; still loving it! Two things would make it even better: 1. Alarms! It would be great to be able to set an alarm for Fajr, or for the start of blue hour, or the beginning of civil twilight…. Things like that. 2. The ability to swipe left-right/up-down to explore changes is marvelous. But this information instantly disappears when you lift your finger. It would be better if this stayed on screen until you tapped a button to return to the current date and time. (3. Solar compass still only works in the Northern Hemisphere, but that is a minor point. I can still find North)

  8. Randy Barber-avatar

    It won't set for daylight saving time so it's no use to me. I tried every thing and it will not adjust itself to daylight savings time. Des Moines /CST. I installed a different one that works

  9. slmnklc-avatar

    App is very useful and simple you can add what you need and change as you like. If it is possible i would like to make it as lockscreen wallpaper also. Currently i m unable to make it as lockscreen wallpaper. Thank you in advance.

    Really cool app that teaches without dumbing down. Easy to use interface and highly customizable.

  11. Olga U-avatar

    Enjoyed the app, it was nice, but latest update broke the widget. Uninstalled. Edit: widget disappeared from screen. It still registered as something (I couldn't place another widget in its place, that space was taken up) but it was just "transparent," nothing at all displayed. Edit#2: I gave it one more try, installed the app and this time the widget works! Really do like this clock a lot! Good clean design. ❤️ I just wish there didn't have to be so much fuss after an update.

  12. Alan Troy Davidson-avatar

    Alan Troy Davidson


    Very nice design. Good selection of presentation options. But, can't display the current Daylight savings Time. Standard times only, which is very disappointing as you have to mentally correct one hour for all the times shown.

  13. Shervin Moradpour-avatar

    Shervin Moradpour


    Love it, it's one of the rare cases of getting something nice and clean for free. widget works well, aside from very occasional delay in updates which has to do with Android power management, you can go to app settings in Android and change power saving options for the app. wallpaper works great, no issues. The design and choice of colours is splendid.

  14. Clive Armstrong-avatar

    Clive Armstrong


    Great app, simple easy to follow. Appears very accurate.

  15. Howie Smith-avatar

    The app incorrectly placed me in a time zone that is a few hundred miles from my present location. I tried to manually correct the error, but the app wouldn't accept the changes. Definitely a problem when a clock app can't perform its core function...correctly telling time.

  16. R Nav-avatar

    Great for bicycling in the late afternoon while trying to gauge how much daylight is left.

  17. nivin stevens-avatar

    Awesome app, no problems, no crashes. No advertising. Lots of options to choose from, like Civil Twilight, Twilight, Blue hour ,Golden hour etc. Very accurate. Thanks for the free app. I would highly recommend it.

  18. Ted Reynolds-avatar

    Mostly a gorgeous piece of work. I'm not sure it takes into account daylight savings time though. Maybe adding a switch in settings? After that definately 5 stars!

  19. Whirling Sand-avatar

    This app has everything I could hope for and more. Fully functional, beautiful, inclusive, easy to use and all free. I've installed it a few minuges ago and it is already my new background. The added optional religious times and the compass are such a nice addition!

  20. Annette Reichman-avatar

    Annette Reichman


    This morning it had the correct time. YAY! Not sure what is going on with this clock. I put in on home screen, it shows the time as an hour earlier than what it is! NY is correct time zone

  21. Dorian Geldmeier-avatar

    Dorian Geldmeier


    Good except won't adjust for daylight savings. Can't get the app or widget to match the device time since the spring daylight savings adjustment. Tried reinstalling, didn't work. Please fix!

  22. RYH Kim-avatar

    I just spent hours playing with this app. Highly configurable and a lot of fun to play with. A well organized mind coded this app - everything is straightforward and does exactly what it's supposed to do. 🌞🌛

  23. Thomas Perkins-avatar

    I thought it had an alarm and I don't know if this app is built to follow me cross country and run in the background so it can access my location automatically and Wlwhat's with the spinning clock? I don't understand that either.

  24. Han Boetes-avatar

    This app is amazing! What a load of fascinating options. Why can I enable the second hand? Could you add an option to make the widget open an app (the Xiaomi clock in my case)? Thanks!

  25. ifzaal ahmed-avatar

    Nice app for accurate timings for prayers and fasting.

  26. Josiah Li-avatar

    Very cool, great for visualizing sunrise and sunset. Wish it had this for the moon as well.

  27. Patrick Esteybar-avatar

    Patrick Esteybar


    I think it just bugs. The settings on app doesn't affect the widget.

  28. sahilljd-avatar

    Great app. Time zone is off when set automatically. Places me in Central but should be Eastern. GPS is correct.

  29. Techno Crat-avatar

    Amazing clock, beats all other clocks that have an analogue 24h display hands down. And no ads!

  30. Jeroen van Houten-avatar

    Jeroen van Houten


    Great dev! I requested a feature to be added (golden hour) and now it's here :)

  31. Willard Thomas-avatar

    Thank you for the Sun Clock app, I enjoy it very much it Is an excellent addition towards my Astronomy tools folder.

    It need's a update because the widget doesn't alway's the most consistent time.

    Very nice-looking and won't drain the battery

  34. Tony Alberte-avatar

    Fantastic clock, I have never seen anything like it ! Bravo

  35. Victor Benoit-avatar

    no widget, no wallpaper still no widget and no wall paper in app nor via the widget menu. android OS 9.

  36. Nicholas Bodley-avatar

    Nicholas Bodley


    The developer has considerable talent for designing unique clock faces, several of which are basically 12-hour, but ingeniously incorporate 24-hour elements plainly showing dawn. day, dusk, and night. His esthetic sense is very good. There's a fine sense of "balance"; elements go together quite nicely. I'd love to choose carefully and use one of his designs for a standalone clock. Better, repurpose a used tablet for that. As well, he knows about traditional daily religious event times.

  37. G Malone-avatar

    Wallpaper STILL not displaying correctly. NOT user error! ‐------------------------ Don't know what you did, but all of a sudden (perhaps after an auto-update, 1-23-2020) the wallpaper sunclock is all screwed up, rotated to an odd angle, showing daylight hours as if from another part of the world, numbers around the 24-hr dial are rotated into contorted positions. I've reset the location several times, reset the config several times.... not working right. Ruined, as it stands.

  38. Jerry George-avatar

    Thr clock will not stay in my time zone. It keeps reverting to Central time, after I gave set it for Eastern time, US.

  39. Jon Manilenio-avatar

    Very nice! I wish the widget also has the option to show the 2nd hand, but it's not necessary as that may consume too much battery. A bit more differentiation of the minutes indicators on the 24-hour clock would be welcome, too, like maybe circles or a different color to make them more obvious. The color of the 2nd hand would be nicer if it was red & thinner, & if it was a smooth movement (like an automatic) instead of a ticking motion (like a quartz). But as it is, it's become my one & only!

  40. Sarman V-avatar

    S. Good. Accepted, the suitable improvements seems taking place in the dial's appearance. 5*s. Keep it up ever it's full functional activities well. 'Second's Hand' disappeared in the widget while working in the wallpaper. Hope fix it soon besides, improving the dial's appearance further more attractive in all aspects & even in the widget too. Thanq very much.

  41. Susan Graham-avatar

    Clock is difficult to understand and doesn't seem to be in the correct orientation. Compass doesn't work correctly. Excellent concepts and artwork!

  42. Mas Sur-avatar

    The night hunting ban keeps disappearing after i remove it from recent app (disappearing from the widget, and the option is unchecked when i reopen the app), unlike the blue hour nor nautical twilight (these two dont disappear). Unless i make it as my homescreen. The second hand doesnt show in widget, home screen, and lock screen. I would really love to set it as my lock screen only with out making it as my home screen (which i cant). PS: im using it on android 9 of galaxy a30

  43. YW Lim-avatar

    Liked the concept and design. However may I suggest that for the home screen widget, please consider adding an option to access the system alarm clock app. TQ

  44. Julie Burns-avatar

    I would like to be able to change the colour of the hour and minute hands so they are easier for me to see at a glance. Nice app but not what I was looking for.

  45. Gogo Bilek-avatar

    Super. Good job. I like it. One thing. Some issue with resizing while turning from lanscape to portrait. Clock doesn't resize. Me on miui actualy.

  46. Visual Selma-avatar

    Very nice and useful. Also is there a pro version where you can set the colors?

  47. Gurpinder Sohal-avatar

    I love all the different ways that I can configure the clock!

  51. Teresa Davis-avatar

    Really awesome app! Thank you!

  52. Chaz Miller-avatar

    Simply beautiful and very customizable. Nice to see at glance how far the sun has progressed and how long it has to go. The real noon (midday) is also represented. The twilight gradients are the highpoint. There are a number of these on Play Store, but this one's widget never freezes and it is by far the most attractive of them all.

  53. Michael Hebert-avatar

    Was just looking for a good looking analog clock with something more distinctive than funky graphics for my new moto x4. After 5 other install-disappointment-delete cycles, I was so much more than pleasantly surprised. Set to 24 hour mode, with all of the twilight settings enabled, it really gives you a good perspective on a day's time. Compass is also an awesome feature!

  54. Duane Smith-avatar

    Nice app. Useful. As others have stated, more settings would be nice. Tried setting wrong time zone, didn't work. Arizona USA Never observes daylight savings time. This is rather annoying. Need option to turn DST on or off. Add option to show local sidereal time and I'll gladly give 5 stars. Thanks

  55. Patricia Edsall-avatar

    Patricia Edsall


    Had uninstall was exactually 2 hours off could find no way to change the time to correct time. Looked like cool app.

  56. David Southern-avatar

    Very good app.

  57. Alexandros Hatzinotas-avatar

    Alexandros Hatzinotas


    Thank you and deep respect for this app. It's a brilliant idea and conception for a modern solar clock. I really appreciate the day and night horizon as well as the sun's rotation above and under it. I wish there was a wrist watch like this. Very nice work.

  58. Jose-avatar

    I really like it. I would suggest that put the option to have skins in the clock for example put the earth in the middle and with blue sky in the day part and stars in the night. maybe the seasons (spring, summer) in a outer part of the clock.

  59. Donikë Abazi-avatar

    i very much like the app, but because I'm using it to refer to Islamic prayer times I'm sceptical of the times. Are the calculations correct? I have another app for prayer times and the difference between your app's prayer times and the other app's are somewhat 30 to 40 minutes of difference. Thanks.

  60. Mar J.-avatar

    Thanks, great app. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  61. Geoff Chan-avatar

    Love this beautiful app - an elegant design that conveys a lot of complex information in a simple way. Will there be a version for Android Wear? I would love to have a watch with these features!

  62. Jonathan H-avatar

    Fabulous piece of software. I really admire the level of detail that has gone into making this app and the simplicity of use! Thank you for your efforts in this regard, it is truly a magnificent achievement.

  63. Timothy Weeks-avatar

    Clock shows an hour behind. Doesn't show true time of my location. So basically it's useless... Using GPS, and setting manual location.

  64. Tommy Sheehan-avatar

    Excellent app. So helpful to see where I am in the day at a glance. Very helpful developer.

  65. A Google user-avatar

    beautiful and works perfectly - i would like to add more widgets on the screen with name of globe cities, it would be excellent

    Excellent App, this is sundial that I'm looking for, since you've added midday on top, when this option are selected you should consider to move the prayer time accordingly

  67. A Google user-avatar

    Please fix widget. It works for some days, then freezes.

  68. Maia Hughes-avatar

    Best app ever, shows how much of the precious day I've got through as a whole, constant reference point to track time

  69. Mohammad Khan-avatar

    Nice app but design could be updated. Looks a bit outdated. Also prayer times for +5.30 GMT are off by half an hour.

    Failure. The clock is one hour behind the current time for America Eastern Seaboard. It says DST, time is still incorrect.

  73. funnytime13-avatar

    Shows wrong to correct?

  74. T. D. Bostick-avatar

    Super app! Would it be possible to make a solar compass widget in addition to the clock one?
