not enough stars
this rev is exactly what I needed. This app has reached the top. There is no way to improve it from here. I photograph sunrise/sunsets, moonrise/moonsets and used to have to fake out the app by setting the ipod time and date to the time of the event I was interested in to get an actual compass direction for where on the horizon things are going to happen. Not anymore! You can set your location in maps to exactly where you are and with the new rev know exactly where on the horizon the rise/set.. is going to occur. If you are into photography this is EXACTLY what you need for this type of landscape photos. Fantastic job in providing this update. There aren't enough stars to actually rate it.. The only thing to improve on its usefulness to me is for apple to finally get a gps in the ipod touch so I can pinpoint my location exactly.. but that ball is in apples court!
thanx for a great update.. hallmark
Sun n Moon
Both my son and I are into photography and since we got this app we have become sunset photo buffs. Knowing the exact time of the sunset makes it so easy. This summer we travelled from Oregon to the mid west where the sunsets were spectacular and right on time as shown in this app. Very cool that the program could use the built in GPS and auto correct for our new location. Anyone who loves to photograph the great outdoors will love this app.
I'm a truck driver who hauls oversize loads, where sunrise and sunset times are critical. An error can cost around $500. So far this app has done well as far as accuracy is concerned, but it would benefit from a better list of cities. I find myself hoping I have wifi so I don't have to set my position manually on the map. This app is trustworthy, but would benefit from additional development and patches.
