Ratings and Reviews

A basic clever program...


I downloaded this because I wanted to see where the sun would shine through windows in my new study. Program works just like it appears in the example images: it shows the angle of the sun in summer and winter. It downloaded an accurate map of my new home's location, then showed the aspect of the sun at the solstices. Suited my needs perfectly.

Good first version but needs a little work


It does show the path of the sun at winter and summer solstice times for your current location. But, it doesn't allow you to put in a location. I don't want to have to travel to a location to get the information.

There should be a way to use the compass feature of the iPad then lock the location and direction in place. More of an Apple issue, but their compass feature makes apps jump around even when sitting the iPad or iPhone still on a table surface. Also if holding the device, I don't want the picture moving and swaying around while viewing the results.

There is no apparent in-app purchase to get more features as it eludes to in the information section.

The popup text windows do not display in landscape.

The colors referenced in the help section do not match the colors used in the app...but they are close enough that you will understand their representation. For example, the developer uses red, blue, and orange lines according to the help section. They are really orange, blue, and yellow. I work on graphics and have a great eye for colors.

Lastly, it doesn't show the path of the sun currently...just where it is in the path at the current moment. Unlike the solstice moments, it doesn't show the complete path, including sunrise and sunset points, for the current day.

If much of this is fixed, I would be happy to increase the rating. I always thought there was a need for this kind of app.
