What's New in Version 2.5.2
I use this app all the timeas part of my job in producung still and motion imagery It is versatile and very, very useful and I recommend it to everyone. It had some iOS8 hiccoughs, but the developers have been caring and responsive and the latest version, 2.5.1 is spot on. If you shoot outside and can't scout a location at the time when you'll shoot, this app will save you a lot of aggro.
Update after bug fixes to handle 8.x, back to normal with new map options. If you shoot, this is an app you want from a developer who cares about customers.
Works, but it has an odd UI
For example, one would think that Locations, Search Location, and Bookmark Location would all be in the same place. They are in 3 different places. And things that you would think are intuitive, like a toggle between a North is Up vs Auto Orientation are hidden in the menu.
There are other frustrating things too, like no quick reminder on what each of the colors mean, and some features which aren't obvious like "Copy URL".
It works, but it has a larger learning curve than should be necessary. A little more polish and it'd be fantastic.
Get this app if you do outdoor photography
I didn't realize how useful this app could be until I was asked to do a photo shoot for a client that wanted a sunset shot in 5 weeks, the day before their wedding, I checked this app and I could tell them EXACTLY to the minute when the sun would be on the horizon on that day. It's easy to use, graphics are good, and the learning curve is short.
