About the Magic Hour App

Developer & Support

App by elfinda apps

Developer's Description

The light at sunrise and sunset is unlike any other time of day. The shadows are gone as the light is diffused through the Earth's atmosphere. It's called the golden hour or magic hour. Photographers and filmmakers shoot at this time for remarkable results.

Magic Hour is a tool to calculate when the next window occurs at your location. When in the magic hour, the app shows a countdown clock for how much time you have left.

Additional features include extra information about the light in your area, and alerts you can set to get you ready for a morning or evening shoot.
