Best utility app I own

I’ve been using this app for years, I use it to determine what apartment to rent (where the sun will shine in which windows at what time of the year), to choosing seats at a restaurant (oh the sun will pass by that tree in about 10 minutes and we’ll be in full sun let’s sit elsewhere). Worth the cost at full price.

Love this sun tracking app!

As a photographer I especially appreciate knowing where the sun will be on any given day in any given time. This app does a number of beautiful things to help me get that data. Love this app!

Great photography and solar panel tool

As well as determining lighting for photography at a later date, this app was indispensable on my solar panel install. I didn’t have enough roof space to place all panels on the southern exposure, but I was able to discover with the AR function that for most of the year, my western exposure would have longer light and placed the remaining panels more efficiently.
