Always Enjoy the Sunset and Sunrise

There’s never going to be a missed sunrise or sunset again thanks to the Sol: Sun Clock app. If you happen to be a photographer, either a professional or just an amateur, this is a must-have app for capturing those stunning moments in the day. This app has other purposes as well: it's also great for fishermen so they know the perfect time to head out, it's ideal for helping you determine the best natural sleep cycles, and it's useful to just make plans in your day that may be based around the outdoor conditions. The user interface is meant to mimic a sundial so it is smooth and simple, yet effective.

The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and was recently updated so it would be compatible with iOS 8. There were also some minor bug issues that were fixed. Users have given the app 4.5 out of five stars, calling it beautiful, yet it could use more features.

The User Experience

Users can expect a very simple and smooth experience with the Sol: Sun Clock app. There are some cool added features such as the app's ability to automatically detect your location and you can also manually choose a location if you like. You can do a manual search or you can just move around on the map and drop a pin. The app will use GPS in the background to automatically locate your position so as you move around it will adjust and continue to provide you with the proper time of the sunset and sunrise. View exactly how much time you have left until the sun sets or rises, set up the alarms and reminders, and use it to find the three twilight periods, solar noon and midnight, and even view when the equinox and solstice will happen.

I would have to agree with users that it would be nice to see additional tools added; it certainly wouldn't hurt.
