Awesome visualization tool for real-time sun & shadow

Endless possibilities with this app. 📸🏡☀️You can go anywhere on earth and set the time & date (later with premium subscription) and see shadow casting for landscape and buildings. Some high res cities area there (I have seen Vienna and Munich) but you basically see all buildings worldwide as blocks.
It’s great that the app gets updated on the fly with new features even without an App Store Update. All thumbs up to the developers here! 👌

Top auch für Fotografen

Finde die App echt klasse! Ich nutze sie für die Fotografie und da interessiert es mich auch wie lange ich in einem Tal Sonne hab und wo sie wann ist und auch in welcher Höhe steht daherkommt! Das ist mit der App super erfassbar, da sie auch das Gelände miteinbezieht.
Einzig was mich stört, mein Haus (Siedlung am Rande in Wien ) + dortige Umgebung ist noch immer nicht in 3D dargestellt und wir wohnen schon 5 Jahre dort… finde für den Preis, könnte man da mal nachbessern.
Aber für viele Orte und Citys schon sehr detailiert, das ist dafür top!
