Key Features: ► Quality Predictions SkyCandy uses historic, current, and future weather data to determine if your next Sunrise or Sunset will be colorful and vivid. Please keep in mind that odds are odds, so even if SkyCandy says there's an 80% chance the sunset will be beautiful, mother nature could still roll the dice and get the other 20%! ► Sun Position Tool Using our Sun Position Tool, drop a pin anywhere on the map to know exactly which direction the Sun will be at any time, any date, and any location.

  • Great app!

    By LAPhotog1911
    Very accurate. Essential for outdoor photography. I can’t live without it for my landscape photography business
  • This App is Crap!

    By Scottdt21
    Total waste of money. Have had the thing for months and not yet has it predicted correctly. Tonight, with a 20% Poor rating for a nice sunset, I wasn’t even bothering to look. All of a sudden my wife calls me to come see the beautiful sky.....a gorgeous sunset!! Almost missed due to this miserable program. Total waste of money and a consumer rip off!!!!!!
  • Disappointing

    By michgirl51
    Half the time this app would only show predictions for the wrong time of day—sunrise even hours before sunset. This happened multiple times even after an update. I finally deleted the app since it wasn’t doing the job
  • Kind of alright

    By btmcbrayer
    It’s generally accurate, but my big issue with the app is the fact that it often shows the sunrise when it’s mid day, and won’t give a prediction for the sunset. I’ve tried reinstalling the app and using another phone, but it auto loads the sunrise at mid day 50% of the time. I suspect it’s to push their premium subscription. Maybe it’s just a bug though. The first would be a shame. Edit for developer response: I’m on an iPhone 6 using the 12/hr time format. This sunset/sunrise mid day issue is still a thing so I thank you for looking into it!
  • Excellent app,

    By CaronAmy67
    Works great, very accurate. Helps me find beautiful sunsets for my photography.
  • Need a longer trial period

    By ClairaMarie
    I have the trial version. You can only see as far as the very next sunrise or sunset so there really is no way to get a fair test of the apps ability to forecast any further out than a few hours. I cannot evaluate whether or not it's worth buying with such a small preview window. Why not allow one week with full features? If I'm going to commit to a monthly subscription, I want to know before I buy. Thanks.
  • No way to manually enter location

    By ScoobyDooMama
    This is one of the only apps I’ve EVER used that demands your location access 24/7, no way to manually enter your location ... which is just dumb. I don’t want these app makers to have access to my location 24/7. Why not let me choose my location?? Get with the program! If they ever add that option I’ll buy the premium version but till than will be getting deleted.
  • Great app! Needs a little work under the hood

    By TweakedCulture
    Great concept just needs a little work. App closes often
  • Does not open

    By LG@50
    Does not only worth 1 star
  • I love the concept but too buggy

    By Thetitanofterror619
    I have the premium trial version and every time I try to search a location, it closes the app. I never right reviews but I had high hopes for this one needed it to work because I go to the coast multiple times a week. This could have possibly saved me some time and gas.
