GoldenHour.One - App Review

If you're a photo pro, you already know but, if you are a mere amateur and just take snaps then... why is it that some are very good and others not so much... lighting makes all the difference.

This App enables you to get the best chance of being in the right place at the right time.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The App starts with a very useful 9 page tutorial. This explains in detail when the Golden and Blue hour occur, anywhere.

The home screen contains four buttons at the bottom:

This shows the current time, as well as the Golden Hour and Blue hour for lighting conditions, as well as the sky and light indices. Scrolling left to right (or vice versa) will show you other days than today. You can set a reminder from this screen.

This shows your current location and lines for Golden/Blue periods, as well as allowing you to set a reminder. Again, the date can be scrolled, although with a marker.

Choose Sky or Light index and see 6 days at a glance.

Here you can see any reminders you have set and delete any with a right to left swipe.

The App Costs $4.

If you are interested in taking better photos then, this will help you achieve just that.

The App works very well, obviously the vagaries of weather forecasting need to be taken into account.

The really needs access to your location, in order to be able to calculate the position of the sun. You can optionally allow the use of notifications (essential if you are going to rely on reminders).

ACIDS Test Rating:

Better photos... almost guaranteed.
