Description of App

Sundial displays the sun and moon's rise/set cycle in a handy 24-hour ring. You can create iOS notifications for common events, including sunrise, solar noon, sunset, moonrise, lunar noon, lunar midnight, and moonset. Notification of full moon, new moon, first quarter moon, and last quarter moon is also supported. You can also create alerts for astronomical, nautical, and civil twilight start and end, including dawn and dusk.

Sundial is great for runners, hikers, campers, walkers, boaters, sailors, pilots, gardeners, farmers, photographers, film/tv production crew, astronomers, and travelers of all kinds. Parents, want a reminder that twilight is over and you need to get the kids inside? This is for you. Like to take your dog on a walk 30 minutes for sunset? Sundial has you covered.

Sundial does not require an Internet connection to calculate rise & set times: GPS and built-in algorithms are used.

You can enable one alert for free. Unlock unlimited alerts by making a one time in-app purchase of Sundial Premium. Premium has other neat features including options to synchronize your alerts to other devices using iCloud and disable screen lock when Sundial is active (use it is a clock on your desk).

Includes a Today Widget for quick access on the iPhone and an Apple Watch app. The Apple Watch app includes several complications for 38mm, 40mm, 42mm, and 44mm watches.

The iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch apps have voice over support for all features. Reported times switch between AM/PM and 12/24 notation based on your system settings.

I enjoyed adding **real** voice over support for 4.0 and I'm really glad it is working well for you. Please feel free to send me any glitches you or others find in the future.

I am in love with the moon and so we shall be in sync.

I downloaded this app to know more about the moon phases and so far it's working fine, no accessibility issues or bugs. I might buy the premium version to support the developer in the future, as I don't need the premium functions.

Hello everyone.
Widgets for this app are no longer confined to the today view. Home screen widgets are supported with voiceover and work quite well.
The new apple watch app also includes many more complications.
