Please follow us on https://www.facebook.com/planitforphotographers/ and https://www.instagram.com/planitphoto/. We have Planit Photo Competition going on with $3300 awards every year.
This is a special call to landscape photographers, travel photographers, nature photographers and those who are interested in night photography, city photography, time-lapse, star-trails, milky way or astrophotography: look no more, this is the ultimate app for you - the Planit!
Ansel Adams dedicates the beginning of his first book "Taos Pueblo" to visualization. He introduced the idea of "previsualization", which involved the photographer imagining what he wanted his final print to look like before he even took the shot. Of course, there are many great photos which were taken impromptu. However, for landscape photographers, being able to previsualize the scene before going there will greatly reduce the chance of being caught unprepared and will greatly increase the chance of getting better shots.
Photographers use various tools to help them pre-visualizing the scene. Nowadays, many of those tools are phone apps. Planit! is the all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map and simulated viewfinder technologies to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the ground subjects and the celestial objects such as the Sun, the Moon, Stars, Star-trails and Milky Way.
In the planit app, we packed it with features - from location scouting such as GPS coordinates, elevations, distance, elevation gain, clear view, focal length, depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, to the Ephemeris features such as the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and direction, twilight time, special hours of the day, sun/moon finder, major stars, constellations, nebulae azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning, time-lapse calculation and simulation, milky way searching, solar eclipse and lunar eclipse, exposure/ND filter calculator, light meter, bulb timer etc. All the information are either represented on the map as an overlay or visually presented in simulated viewfinders (VR, AR, picture, or street view), just like you look through your camera's viewfinder.
Please refer to the tutorial at the help page of the Planit for more details. More video tutorials at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bna8_Mj8Bso&index=1&list=PLTmlTTxPbBbeu8Yx4paLUytV8z60SSL_w
Fully integrated with the video tutorials, click on the help button in the lower left corner to see all the videos that are currently available. Although not many right now, more will come soon.
Copy and paste can be used to paste coordinates, which makes it easy to move multiple markers to the same position.
Fixed an issue when opening a shared plan file, it was not save automatically.

Ratings and Reviews
Big fix needed
In version 2.1, View Finder (VR Mode) is not available. It feels 2.1 worst than previous versions, lack quite a lot of functions.
Developer Response ,
As far as I knew, no features were removed in v2.1. As a matter of fact, we even added AR viewfinder mode. Please email me if you have trouble with it.
Too hard to.start use it
Developer Response ,
This is not an app for everyone. There are several video tutorials that you can watch. Once you understand how to use it (which is not that hard actually), you will benefit from it a lot. No other apps can give you the same benefit.
This app is the greatest!
The amount of effort, knowledge and skill that has gone into developing this very comprehensive photographic tool is incredible!
Really appreciate the ongoing updates.
