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.

Absolute top of the notch! Best location tour tool!


Feature request:
In augmented reality please add the possibility to control exposure. No problems when it's front lit but back lit the shots always get too dark. Sometimes difficult to show to clients!


This is truly the best companion for any photographer! Even as a location guide before you are on the spot due to the maps. Once you are on location with 3D augmented reality you can actually see where the sun is AND take a screenshot for the client! A feature none of the other competitors have. Only the graphic design is a bit outdated but the infos make up for it by far!
The best invested 10€

UPDATE: this is a serious new feature: holding the iOS device in map mode and using the natural compass looking at exactly what's in front of you instead of a north facing map. But one can toggle back to the classic setting!
Thanks to the developer for implementing exactly my feature request!
