What's New in Version 2.3
- Updated design
- This version requires iOS 5 or higher
Used for years
I have used this app for many years and it works very well for the information about where the sun and moon will be for photography just about anywhere in the world. You don't need to be on line so that's great for remote locations. Has just about all the major cities preloaded and is easy to add new cities or locations by using you phone service to locate you. Or by you adding the Lat and Lon and creating a custom name and location.
It is just letterboxed differently now. It looks VERY MUCH like an iOS 6 or previous app. Plus it has me as in New York, and it’s not easy to find how to have it choose where I am.
I’m unsure why this was JUST updated to something that runs on iOS 5 and later. 6 could easily be the minimum bar in this day and age.
