    100% recommended for filmmakers. Even if you are moving to a new place are concerned about the sun hitting your windows.
  • A must for anyone designing a solar focused home.

    My wife and I are designing a solar focused home in NM, USA. Sifting through overly technical websites with mountains of raw data left us starving for usable information specific to our homesite. This app not only translates such data into usable information for today’s date but, gives us projections of where the sun will be throughout the year. Now we are able to site our future home with (solar) precision as well as make better decisions as to the exact nature of our structure’s design to maximize solar gain for the winter and shade for the summer.
  • Terrible Update

    Worked fine until they it updated. Now it’s hugely inaccurate ( I don’t mean just a bit, I mean a lot). Please fix ASAP!
  • Nice App For Planning Outdoor Photography

    I saw this App on a photography website and it looked interesting. I like it for both planning when to shoot for best lighting conditions and just for the scientific curiosity. It’s also fun just to show people. You’ve gotten some sales from that.
  • Beautifully designed. Functional. Well worth the money.

    I’ve attempted to contact this business and have got no reply’s I am a photographer and need to know when the the sun rises over the mountains. This app does not offer a preview of the land. I have the sun survayer app and that will show you a picture of the location you enter so I can actually see where the sun rises or dips over the mountain. This app only gives you a birds grid and a street view using a street map, which is not helpful in my case. If I’m missing something here I would love to know. Because getting a hold of these guys is proving to be impossible
  • Stop it!

    Stop looking for a better app. This is the only sun app you need. Choose a location and pick a time, then see where the sun will be. I've used this app for several years and it just keeps getting better. It's very stable and never crashes.
