What time is sunset today? Or sunrise tomorrow? When is the "magic hour" next March 20 in Paris? With Sol, you can check times and get reminders of solar events, at home or while traveling! Great for everyone looking to plan activities based on sunlight. Use it to remind you to walk the dog before dark, get up with the sun, or find golden hour time for that perfect photo. Sol: Sun Clock is the Swiss-army knife of sunlight tools with a design inspired by the simplicity of the sundial. Use it to plan your day, guide natural sleep cycles, get the best light for outdoor photography, make sure animals or kids are safe inside before dark, or to map out the best times to go running or fishing. * Be in tune: Sol will tell you when the golden hour is, how much sunlight you have left in the day or what time the next sunrise occurs. * Look to the future, travel around the world: Sol lets you find sunlight information for any date, anywhere on earth. * Find solar midnight and solar noon, and all three twilight (dawn and dusk) periods: astronomical twilight, nautical twilight, and civil twilight. Keep tabs on the next solstice and equinox. * Reminders and Alarms: Use Sol as a natural alarm clock that you can set to any event (like sunset, golden hour or solar noon), and the alarm or reminder time will adjust gradually as the days change with the seasons. * Automatic Location: Sol not only calculates the amount of daylight and sunrise and sunset times, but does so for any location in the world (both Northern and Southern hemispheres) by using your device's GPS... no network connection required. * Other locations: Optionally, use the built-in map to choose any location in the world by moving the pin, or search using the name of any city. * Optional location-aware alarms. Sol knows when you change with your location; and as you travel it will adjust any alarms you set relative to sunrise and sunset times. Create alarms for multiple locations around the world. * Detailed almanac information: Useful information about the day's length, sun's azimuth and elevation, equinoxes and solstices, and a friendly glossary that explains all the terms. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. However, GPS runs in the background ONLY if you have set location-aware alarms.



  • iPhone X screen size

    By Some Guy from space
    When will this be updated to reflect iPhone X and newer phone resolutions? It's a great app except for that.
  • Handy, no. Needed yes.

    By Lady Brooke
    A simple thing but so needed. It is one of my apps that has I believe been with me faithfully since iPhone 4. Not only for farmers, pilots too. Whoever made this app thank you.

    This is a very well app that is graphically put together. I like to ability to alarm at twilights, mid-days and nights, rises and sets - and choosing either civil, nautical, astronomical settings, and alerting to the golden hour that are superb times for taking pictures!! A lot of movie directors (Clint Eastwood for instance) uses the suns natural, and color natural mode to emphasize scenes during the “golden hour”, as do many photographers. I would recommend that they incorporate a lunar app also, along the same conceptual guidelines. There are a lot of apps in this category but none so well as this one. Fantastic! A+ Highly recommended.

    I've been using it for years now. So helpful for planning hikes, photography, etc. 🤗
  • Helps me be aware of useful light left in the day

    By beginnersview
    I've had the app for a couple years now. It's useful to help me schedule and get things done while still have available light. Which is even more important to me as winter night starts sooner. Thanks. (P.S. Re your glossary info page, the phrase should be Daylight "Saving" time, not savings plural. )
  • Coffee with a view time

    By RDSent
    I have a little place in the desert, in the foothills, with a beautiful view of the White Sands so this gets me up just as the sun rises to have my coffee and enjoy the spectacular view from my front porch. Great way to start the day!
  • Great app

    By Review1*
    I've been using this app for years. It's great when I travel to the beach, mountains, or even New York City. The app shows you the golden hour which is great for planning photos, I find it spot on. One of my best apps, don't t use it every day but I love it all the same.
  • Amazing

    By Happy n sad
    It needs a couple refinements and two or three additional features, but still, amazing!
  • Could be better...

    By Justo23
    This would be perfect if it showed the moon's current location and phase (basic graphic) when zoned out, and the rotation could be flipped so when I look South (I live in the northern hemisphere) the app would work like a basic Sun and Moon pointer. All current features are flawless. Good app.
  • Good app!
