What's New in Version 2.5.2
There are so many ways this can be useful beyond photography, such as calculating best positions for planting trees, placing clothesline, or knowing the effects of other buildings or features, or calculate how to orient things to the rising or setting sun on particular days. And to work out which side of a hotel you would prefer to sleep on depending on the sun. Oh, do stop prattling - there are as many uses as your imagination can play with. Thanks.
Great right out of the box
As Finbaz mentioned, this app can be used for probably a dozen other things. It is, however, wonderfully adapted to its original use for photography, and is so, so, useful.
Used it to pre-plan where I'd like to be at sunrise at the Taj Mahal - if anything more was required, it was an app to open the gate earlier and thin out the crowd.
Does exactly what it should without any dramas :)
Would be nice to see simulated shadows on the map as the sun moves etc though but otherwise highly recommended.
