Amazing for outdoor photography!
Photo Pills has the potential to be an amazingly outstanding tool for photographers, instead it is very limited in its usefulness due to it non-intuitive interface. It makes use of satellite views to give you the direction of the sun and moon at all times of day or night. But if you try to find the angle of the Sun at a particular time of day you SLAM into the interface wall which is extremely opaque. I have used Photo Pills for about 12 months and it remains a tough pill to swallow. IF ONLY the creators had a handle on what good interface design means it would be an amazingly useful tool. Lamentably, right now Photo Pills remains a tool for the nerdiest of geeks who know their way around a slide rule. Too bad. I would instead recommend SOL, which although not as feature-rich is much more usable.
This app is outstanding for photography! It's absurdly accurate and has all the tools you could need. The planner interface is not quite intuitive, but they have tutorials to help. One feature that great to have would be a light meter. It uses the iPhone camera to let you play with exposure settings and see the resulting effect
One of a kind, this app has been with me for about 2 years or so, I've watched it grow and become better and better.. I plan beach weddings and sunset shoots with it..
