Rise - The Sunrise Sunset Calendar

Category: 

Description of App: 

**Now with Weather and Alerts**

Look up sunrise and sunset times for any day and any place in the world.

**No internet connection required**

Beautifully designed. Remarkably simple to use. Everything within one swipe of your thumb.

Why you'll love it:

1. No internet connection required. If you're 10,000 feet up in the mountains without cell service and need to know what time you should be down the mountain,
we got you covered.

2. Beautiful swipe implementation to see the times. Follow the dark purple color with your thumb to see the sunset time appear.

3. Weekly view. Tap the app once to see the sunrise/sunset times for the next 4 days.

4. You can add a weather overlay for your week view. This allows you to see if it will be overcast or sunny when you plan for a photo-shoot, hike or hunting
trip.

5. You can also add notifications to alert you when the sun will rise or set.

6. Works with one hand. No pinching or pulling required.

We think we've made the best sunrise/sunset calendar app in the App Store. We hope you enjoy it.

Other Comments: 

I so wanted to love this app as it sounded so promising. Sadly though all I could do with it was see the sunrise and sunset info for my current location for today. I couldn't access the calendar or choose another location at all with VoiceOver. I have contacted the developer to inquire if they'd be willing to improve accessibility and should I hear anything I'll gladly edit this review with an update. However, at this time I cannot recommend this app at all.
