Great Application for my business!
As a professional photographer I always need to know where the sun will be for both outdoor and indoor locations. With this app I know exactly when I need to be on location to set up and be ready for the "right light" - it's saved my bacon more than once in previous versions and I imagine the new and improved version will do more of the same!
a MUST have
This is a GREAT app, constant updates to improve the app and great support. Good clean layout and look, yet simple to use.
Loads of features packed into a app of this price.
If you are a photographer or just traveling this app is the 1st one you HAVE to buy.
Great great great, the best one out there. Use it everyday and I had a few other ones in the past. Will never look back.
Support the developer, worth every cent.
This is not a toy like some of the other apps I have seen. It's very useful for photography and planning a shoot when angles are critical. Very well done!
