* Search YouTube for "Sun Seeker app" for many other videos created by enthusiastic users
* 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.

* Fixes widget location issue, which may not have been set correctly until app was next terminated and re-started.
iOS 8 integration is amazing. App amazing in general
This is really one of the best examples of an iPhone application I've ever seen. It thoroughly utilizes all the various facets of the hardware and user experience.
The thing that really made me jump in and write a review was the way that integrates with iOS 8 Notification Center. A small graphic that shows the position of the sun throughout the day as well as various geometric figures regarding this. I sincerely hope, and beg, that the developers do the same thing for the Moon Seeker app that they also sell.
A must for buying real estate or planting a garden
Great app to find the best place to plant your garden. It's also great to build your house knowing where most of the sunshine will fall! Fun to use and priced right! It will tell you when the sun will rise and fall, how many hours daylight you can expect for any day of the year, no matter where you are😄👍 There's much more that I have yet to explore. Thanks for creating a very useful app guys😀🎉😄🎊
Perfect for Photographers!
I've been using this app for a year or two now. I have to say it makes planning out photo shoots and engagement sessions so easy! I can check the sunset and sunrise time with ease and immediately. This has seriously made everything so simple, I'd go crazy without this app.
