* Search YouTube for "Sun Seeker app" for many other videos created by enthusiastic users
* See http://www.ozpda.com/sunseeker/faqs.html - also easily accessible from the app's info screen
* IMPORTANT - Please ensure that Settings / Location Services / System Settings / Compass Calibration is switched ON. The app's 3D view will not work without it!
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.
What's New in Version 4.8
* New improved date and time scroller, giving finer control and better visual feedback, in both map view and 3D view.
I've used this app for several years and it just keeps getting better. It's very stable and never crashes. The new date and time scroll bar is a big improvement. I'm confident that a flat view scroll bar is planned for future updates.
Great App & Easy to Use
Great app for travel, astronomy, hiking and any other activity dependent upon knowing when the sun rises/sets. Also allows you to pick locations so you can plan ahead.
My favorite feature is the 3D augmented reality view of the sun. Helped to ensure I knew where the sun would be during hotel research as well as for sunset planning for photos. Plus the ability to export sun data as a CSV table for use in a spreadsheet is great as well.
Great app and worth the price.
Nice job and please keep the updates rolling.
Must have app for photographers and event planners
As a photographer who constantly has to plan locations for photo shoots, this app is worth a ton. I use it constantly. I just wish event and wedding planners would use it so they don't end up with bad lighting.
