If you’re a stickler for sunsets, you might like SunSet Timer for Android.

Using GPS to access your location, thus bypassing the need for an internet connection, SunSet Timer does exactly what it says on the box. Walkers, bikers, runners or, indeed, anyone who needs to be home before it gets dark can use this app to ensure they don’t get caught out.

You can also set a reminder alarm in advance to ensure you’re home before dark, or perhaps find a great vantage point to take some photos. It’s just a shame there isn’t a widget here to pin the timer to your homescreen.

SunSet Timer costs $1 or your local currency equivalent.
