* See - 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 cannot 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.


Version 5.6.5

* Ensures that any prompts for app rating are infrequent at most.

Sorry to anyone who felt "bugged" by prompts. This was unintentional, as I had wrongly believed that iOS's built-in rate limiting would have prevented repeated requests, although it seems that some new app users were seeing up to the maximum of three annual requests in rapid succession. Also note that users can disable all app rating requests globally via device Settings if they wish, to avoid ratings prompts in general.

Unsere Anmerkungen

Verfolge den Lauf der Sonne.

Sehr nützlich

sonar ruler

Ich habe lange die kostenlose Lite-Version genutzt und war schon von der beigeistert . Ich bin im Immobilienbereich tätig und nutze diese App laufend. Die aktuelle Version ist sogar noch deutlich verbessert.
Für mich stiftet diese App
Einen großen Nutzen.

Funktioniert nicht


Habe mir die vollversion gekauft. Absolut nutzlos. Kompass geht nicht, somit wird auch der falsche sonnenstand angezeigt. 3D Version, weshalb ich sie haben wollte geht natürlich auch nicht. Die Sonne wird immer sonst wo angezeigt nur nicht da wo sie ist oder seien wird. Ich bin da auf einer äußerst akkuraten Anzeige angewiesen somit Leider komplett rausgeschmissenes Geld. Auf der Karte ist der sonnenstand natürlich richtig angezeigt, dafür brauche ich mir die App aber nicht kaufen, das geht auch auf jeder anderen Karte. Einfach nur Super ärgerlich ....


Although the app's calculations are very high precision, the compass may sometimes need calibration, and there is a simple procedure you can follow to ensure best possible calibration. Please do use app's Info / Email Us to contact me for further advice.
