When it comes to good natural lighting, you can’t beat the time of day known as “golden hour” (or “magic hour”). This iOS app can tell when golden hour is every day no matter where you are, and lets you set reminders so you never miss the perfect shot.
We’ve featured cool ways to find golden hour before, but this app from Sam King and Malolan Santhanakris is easier to use and far more portable. The main screen has a dial you can rotate to find the golden hour times for the current day based on your location. You can also quickly set reminders for the current day or the next morning, and you can even set custom reminders for future dates with alerts that go off up to two hours in advance. Rizon lets you see the golden hour times for anywhere in the world, even if you’re offline, and you can set reminders for future dates in different locations so you can grab the perfect shots on that upcoming vacation. It’s so simple and slick it’s a no-brainer for anyone into photography. Unfortunately for Android users, King has said there won’t be an Android version in the near future. You can download Rizon in the iOS App Store for $2.49 at the link below.
