* Search YouTube for "Sun Seeker app" for many other videos, websites and blogs created by enthusiastic users
* See http://www.ozpda.com/sunseeker/faqs.html - also easily accessible from the app's info screen
* IMPORTANT - Please ensure that Settings / Location Services / System Settings / Compass Calibration is switched ON. The app's 3D view cannot 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.
What's New in Version 5.5.1
* Fixes issues with shadow ratio table and notifications for given shadow ratio and user defined sun elevation.
1:00 in the morning I pointed the phone's camera at the window but I will be photographing the next day. It overlaid the path of the sun for the following day.
For the photograph I was creating it was important to know when I would get direct indoor sunshine
It works perfectly! The best app!
complete data set on location of the Sun.
reading the instructions is the first to do. They are brief, to the point, and easy to understand. If you are located halfway to the North Pole, the gyrations of the Sun are constant It determines the weather, and indicates your progression through the season. Great app.
This is the greatest app if you work on set! Always shows the correct path...
