SunIZup helps you to determine the timings of the Golden Hour and Blue Hour which are also known as Magic Hour by photographers and cinematographers for any selected location and any given date. The timings are calculated in the app by determining the sun's position and path at the given location on the given date. It is a proven fact that Landscape photography during the Magic hour results in better photos than pictures taken at any other duration of the day.

The Magic hour period usually occurs around sunrise and sunset, when the sun is down near the horizon, sunlight travels through a greater depth of atmosphere, reducing the intensity of the direct light, so that more of the illumination comes from indirect light from the sky, reducing the lighting ratio. More blue light is scattered, so if the sun is present, its light appears more reddish. In addition, the sun's small angle with the horizon produces longer shadows.

The app has a built-in database of over 50k locations around the world from which you can search and find the timings of the Golden Hour for that place.

Apart from knowing the Golden Hour and Blue Hour, SunIZup helps you to find the sun's current and future position too, just rotate the dial to know the sun position during the day. The sun position information includes the sun Elevation Angle and Azimuth through the chosen date. In addition to this, you can set alerts within the app to be reminded of the MagicHour. You can also view times of the different light phases during the current day or any other date in future or past. the app also shows the sunrise and sunset timings for the current selected location.

All the data related to locations, notifications etc. is kept on your device and is not transmitted or stored remotely, Further, All calculations of the sunlight phases are done on the device within the app itself.

The app comes with different beautiful backgrounds among which you can choose as per your liking or set it to cycle through them automatically.

Also included is a companion App for the Apple Watch which shows the relevant data for the selected location and also provides alerts which can be set on the phone.
