Agree with Tishalyn

Wish I'd read Tishalyn's review. Exactly right. Was expecting something like the Sun Seeker app but with shadows added to a Google Map satellite image to show extent of ground level shadows once a building height was entered. It's just got a bunch of tables and boxes. My fault I suppose. Should have paid more attention to the reviews but in my defence, it does seem to show satellite images and blocks on top of houses. I suppose the calculations are there, so it could be improved in the future. Perhaps it already does do what I want but I can't get it to do it from within the app. It either lacks the needed functionality or if it's there, clear instructions. I can't tell which. Anyway, as it stands it's no use to me.

Really Nice App

Simple to use and does what it is intended for. What might be nice is readymade house shapes or the ability to copy an object.
Well done

Such and awful app that is filled with limitations

Complete waste of money for an idea that could be so helpful in aiding with prospective planning permission
