DO NOT PURCHASE THIS VERSION!! WAIT FOR THE NEW RELEASE! Version 2 should be available for download in the next 6 weeks! iOS is out now and is working great! Finishing up Android right now. You'll love the new version!!
It performed GREAT all across the country for the 2017 USA Eclipse! It helped thousands of people enjoy the eclipse. It helped thousands of photographers get eclipse pictures because they had perfect timing with audible countdowns.
It's like having your own personal astronomer help you on Eclipse Day! It is simple to use and has many unique features! Just get into the path of totality for the solar eclipse, and then with just 2 taps on your device, the app is ready to "talk" you through the eclipse.
I have observed 4 previous total solar eclipses. Being based on my personal experience with eclipse observing and photography, I know exactly what is helpful when observing a total solar eclipse.
Created for first-time eclipse observers as well as veteran eclipse chasers, Solar Eclipse Timer is an inexpensive tool to ensure that you don't miss a second of this wonderful event!
GPS location functions automatically find your location, then the app calculates your contact times and max eclipse. With one tap it loads the 4 eclipse contact times into the timers. This function does not require an internet connection, the formula is located in the app itself!
These are all the unique features in this app:
Voice countdowns guide you precisely to the contact times. Announcements are made at the proper times to tell you to observe for interesting things during the partial phases, such as the temperature drop, lighting changes, animal behavior, and shadow bands. The app also tells you when it is safe to take your solar glasses off and then when you must put them back on. To practice your plan for photography, the app has a demo session that plays a totality movie synchronized with the timers. The app includes a unique calculator that lists the times you use to take a sequence of partial phase images that creates a beautiful sequence of the phases just like the professional photographers! Although not a mapping program, included are internet hyperlinks to interactive maps of the eclipse path to help guide you to totality.
The app includes an extensive help file detailing the use of all of its unique features as well as eclipse day checklists and educational information about the partial phase phenomena.

ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION DURING THE PARTIAL PHASES OF A SOLAR ECLIPSE! OR EVEN WHEN IT IS BRIGHT! NOT DOING SO CAN CAUSE EYE DAMAGE!
We are NOT liable for misuse of the app causing inaccurate timing or the lack of eye safety precautions during the observation of a solar eclipse.
The "glasses off" and "glasses on" statements are a guide based on the calculated contact times. The timing can be affected by your phone's clock and the shape of the shadow. You are responsible for the timing. Glasses should be ON if it's bright!
