100% worth the money!!

PhotojournalistChicago

I have used this app so many times it's not funny!! This app is spot on with what time the sun rises and sets in various locations. It's option of using a satellite view of a potential location, live view for a location at a later time, and compass view are all amazing. It gives blue hour for both am and pm, plus sunrise and sunset, moonrise and moon set and SOOO MUCH MORE!!! Plus, the app's predicted placement of the sun at specific times is SPOT ON ACCURATE!! It makes it so much easier to plan shoots when one knows where the sun is going to be!! I absolutely love this app and its 100% worth the money!!!!!

Great App

Just got this app a few days ago and I have to say I’m really impressed with it. The street view is one of the features I love, I’m using it to plan for the Full Moon rising over Cleveland! One thing I’d like to see is being able to sort saved locations alphabetically. And maybe tag some locations as favorites.

Great for archaeology

Better than what I was looking for. The map and street view are great and worth the $. I'm using for some amateur archaeology, wanting to see what if lines align with a solstice etc. Thanks from Charlottesville, Virginia!
