Sol

1.3.4
14 January 2014

Widget displays sunrise and sunset times.

Overview

Sol tells you what time sunrise and sunset are, as well as dawn and dusk. In addition to digital displays, it features an analog 24-hour clock that shows daytime, nighttime, and twilight.

What's new in Sol

Version 1.3.4:
  • Add ReadMe.rtf
  • Fix issue #10: incorrect twilight display at extreme latitudes
  • Fix occasional failure to draw during initial load (especially if multiple copies)
  • City abbreviations for longer city names can no longer hide same-named different cities
  • Fix issue #11: Correct database latitude and longitude values for Toulouse, FR
  • Fix an widget reload display issue when already collapsed
  • Remove 'Uhr' hack and accommodate any length short time format
  • No more "Dashboard wants to access your Contacts" dialogs on 10.8+
  • New option to show the mid day time (i.e. "high noon")
  • New option to show the digital times in UTC
  • New option to show numbers on the analog clock face to better read the time
  • New "Automatic" mode to automatically follow changes to the time zone city (issue #4)

The developer's site is down and I can't seem to get it to take Washington, DC. Any tips?

Change log is here: http://solwidget.googlecode.com/svn/www/CHANGELOG.txt To the MacUpdate staff: is there any way you would consider adding a "Corrections about this application" link to each application listing on MU? This way I wouldn't have to clutter the reviews section with this post. I'm happy to report that this version correctly displays Washington, DC unlike the previous versions. Now the only thing that's missing is an update checking mechanism from within the widget itself.

Please forgive my lack of knowledge but this app is 20.1 MB. Not a large app but the iPhone app that I use does the samething and is 0.5 MB. Just wandering why that would be? Does this app do something other than described?

The one hand would be okay were it to reflect the time in your chosen zone, but it seems to be stuck on Cupertino, even when the sunrise and sunset data is set and gives the info for your own time zone.

Yes, there's something funny going on there. I tried switching to different countries, and the clock hand points to the same position. Only when I change the city, the hand points in a different direction. I guess that if it does not find the specified city in the specified country, it falls back to Cupertino...

Nice work- I'll be keeping this- but I agree about the clock. Please make it a 'real' one with two hands and then we can delete our other clock widgets!

I second this. There's a problem, though... It would no longer be able to show the entire 24 hours, but only 12 at a time. That, however, could be fixed by making an "inner ring" and an "outer ring", where the inner ring shows hours 00:00 - 11:59 and the outer ring shows hours 12:00 - 23:59... The hand could actually change size to point either inside the inner ring or inside the outer ring. :)

I didn't realize there was an update released for this widget, I had been using the second to oldest version! I'm glad I can now specify my own city instead of having to use the nearest major city... makes it a little more accurate. Very nifty.

I really like the information contained in this widget, however the analog clock makes no sense. Sure, it needs to be in 24 hour time, but shouldn't 0 hrs be at the top of the clock instead of the bottom. Perhaps some numbers around the clock face (e.g. 6 am, 9 am, 12 noon, 3 pm, etc) might help in this respect. But, as I am normally up before sunrise, this is good information to have.
