    As one of the developers, I feel compelled to tell you about our photography app, GoldenPic.

    GoldenPic doesn’t just give you the sunrise and sunset, it also provides you the blue and golden hours, moon phase, moonrise and moonset times, weather, GPS coordinates, etc. It even lets you save your GPS coordinates to recall at a later day/time and integrates with Google Maps (great for planning a photo shoot)!

    If that’s not enough, it lets you change the date, provides 5 different ways to change your location and you can email the data to yourself or a client… all from within the app!
