Best thing since sliced bread!

By far my most recommended tool in photography behind a solid tripod (though pretty much as crucial). Absolutely the ducks nuts!
The leap I was able to achieve since getting this app in incredible. Plan to achieve what you plan to achieve, this app helps you do that and so much more. It helps me be in the right place at the right time with the right gear to achieve the shots I dream of capturing. Some apps I’ve had take ages for your knowledge to catch up to the app so you can get the most out of it and others you just outgrow too quickly, PhotoPills grows along with you( or you with it). Can’t thank the developers enough.

Best value app ever

Quite simply, in my opinion, this app is the best value app I've ever used, irrespective of the category. No doubt someone will find a way to find fault, but in my experience this app is comprehensive, stable, completely relevant & entirely focused on customer needs & satisfaction - not on making more $$$ for the developer. The tutorials alone have taught me more about photography than everything I've read in the past 12 months. The developer even responded, literally within hours, over the Christmas holiday period, to an email I sent asking about how to use one aspect of the app. How refreshing.

Remove the guess work

What an amazing app. After years of guessing where the sun will rise or set, the best time for that stunning Milky Way shot, how to line up the moon or sun for that special photo, this app does it all, allowing you to plan with amazing accuracy and detail.

Take your time learning what the app can do, it is very in depth. I’m amazed at the depth of the options within the app. The more you use it the more you will want to.

It’s saved me from many abortive trips as I can now calculate when or where I need to be, and what time I can capture the photo or Timelapse I’m after. More importantly I can calculate where not to be or when not to be there to avoid the many disappointments of the past.

Excellent app well worth the money.
