Great App

Well thought out interface, works perfectly.

I just showed this app to my real estate buddy, and he says he will point the app at the window, and the app tells him what time of day to bring the client — because the sun will be coming through at that very time. And he says, he knows what time to come back to take pictures of the home for a real-estate listing, because he knows what time of day the sun will come through which window, absolutely amazing.

If your a photographer just get it!

I have been using this app for years. It has save me days worth of work, trying to figure out when and where the sun will be.. the real world of you along with the sun charts allows you to know what time and where to be to put the sun behind a tree a building whatever your environment. Specifically for things like sunrise that you can’t see the trajectory of the sun until it’s already up, knowing the precise place where it will be coming from is an invaluable tool. I have recommended this app to anybody who is an environmental photographer even if it is not your main thing having access to this information, will save you an immense amount of time, just get it, seriously.

I love this ap. It lets me ‘scout’ a location virtually. I can tell immediately if the sun will be in the right direction for a shoot. I can also plan my photo shoot timing using the sun rise/set info along with the angles. I use this all the time and recommend it to others.

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve used for where to plant vegetables, gardening, when to safely allow gates for farm animals outside, etc…

Please add video recording of screen.

Video recording of the screen allows a user to see the entire sun path without having to wonder where a single photo might have been taken from. By panning the camera in real time, it is easy to orient oneself and video recording offers this.
