Ratings and Reviews
Not just a photography app.
This is a great app for anyone who needs to know where the sun (or moon) will be at any given time. It is pricey though, so there should be better support. Better instructions for using the app on its homepage or even video tutorials are the least the developers should do. I upgraded to LightTrac from using the free SunCalc website and am glad I did!
Very useful for Landscape Photographers
I have been a large format photographer for almost 20 years and found this app to be very helpful in planning my photo shoots....it not only gives you information about the sun's position, but also moon info...and satellite shots so you can anticipate your day (or evening)
Great app - I use it regularly
Still worth it. But would benefit from having buttons, such as locations, more intuitive. Interface still a little clunky and doesn’t seem to take full advantage of later iOS versions. I would be willing to buy it again, I’ve had this app since my first iPad (1).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
