Customer Reviews

Will put this to a lot of use!!

Already planning a sunrise over a bridge shot this Sunday morning thanks to this app.
(and know that it will be next year before the moon will be perfect for another location - I may have to settle for other than a full moon!)

Excellent app

Well done... Works very well and has extra features such as distance measurements, 3d compass and mapping, and use of the camera within sun/moon plotting. Very good app and easy to use....

Best sun app for photographers!

This app is very helpful at setting up photo shoots or planning your lightening for photos.
