* 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.

One of the best of the best apps
This is a really cool app that does lots of things, I've had it for a couple of years now, and they've added features that I'd missed in their updates. Am very happy with the current version of the app.
Excellent when looking at properties and trying to figure out how sunny and solar efficient it might be.
Great for Sun Dial designers
As an old retired Physicist I design vertical sundials for walls of various declamations in both hemispheres. This App is an invaluable tool.
