SkyCandy is a Sunrise and Sunset forecast app that uses your local weather forecast to predict if the sky will be beautiful and colorful at that magical time, or boring and dull.
SkyCandy is great for photographers, or anyone that wants to skip boring sunsets and see only the beautiful ones. There's also many more exciting features in SkyCandy! See the below list for all of the key features:
SkyCandy uses a hyperlocal forecast to predict the chance of a beautiful Sunrise or Sunset based on known weather conditions that favor a beautiful sky at that magical time. Keep in mind that a high score (such as 80%) means that there is a very strong possibility Sunset will be beautiful, but it not a guarantee. The reverse is also true.
