Where is the sun? How high will it be? When will it be on my balcony?
If you are a photographer, filmmaker, architect, garden/terrace/balcony owner or any other kind of sun lover, this is your app!
Use different Views depending on the information you want:
- compass view: see a top down compass with the sun positions. Use it to see the position in relation to your device heading.
- augmented reality: hold your device in the air, to see if and when the sun will shine down to you. This is great to plan your photographs, videos or your sunbathing time.
- map view: on the map, you can see the sun positions and the beam of sunlight. With a slider, you can calculate the time for the optimal sunlight angle. Of course, you can move the map around to see the effects for any desired spot.
- data view: all the detailed position data listed for any time and location.

Decent for present-time photography
Great little app. The pro version is reasonable at $3. I'm a photographer and for planning purposes it would be nice if I could change the date in compass view, augmented reality, and map view so I can see where the sun/moon will be in the future. All you get is the present day. The only way to make future predictions is to go to the data screen set a new date, (doesn't affect the other views) and look at a list of numbers with no graphical or visual guide. Also an added bonus would be to tell how full the moon is by percentage and whether it is waning or waxing.
Solid app for quick solar studies
When I first downloaded this app I needed solar angle studies quick and easy and it served the purpose. Every time after I needed solar information I would search websites and look at other maps and then eventually end up at this map to use those same angle studies in plan. Each time I returned to the app I saw a little more about the data it provides and the tools it has. By then 3rd time I bought the upgrade version and now it is my go to. I love it. Nice work to whom ever thanks!
Sun, Moon, lights
Originally wanted a Moon app, found this has the Sun as well. Exactly what I want and has great ease of use. Then I discovered all its features, what a gold mine.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
