SunAspect Pro allows you to visualise the sun position and path throughout the day for summer and winter and also for today. It lets you share the information with other devices or friends.
Launch SunAspect Pro and you will see the circular compass rendered over the map of your current location with the compass arrow pointing north. The map will be rotated on your device so that it remains aligned with north no matter which way you are standing or holding your device.
You will also see a graphic that shows the sunrise and sunset positions for both winter and summer as well as the path of the sun. The legend on the lower right shows the color coding for the sun paths.
The map is downloaded in the background and shown on the display with the sun paths drawn over the top.
The control bar at the bottom of the display allow you to get information about the application, obtain help by loading the web page, and gives access to the share menu in order to share your data with other devices or your friends.
The status bar above the control bar shows your current location and your present locality.
You can email, SMS, Tweet, or post the information to facebook using the Share button. You can share the location (latitude, longitude and altitude) along with the name of the nearest town and the screen image.
The Settings icon is in the header bar and this allows you to customise SunAspect.

Ratings and Reviews
A basic app that does what it says...
Downloaded the app when I needed to check how the sun would shine through the windows of my new study. It showed that perfectly.
There are a few customizations with this app, but no more than those shown. For example, I couldn't zoom in or out of the basic map view. Does offer the option to show the current aspect of the sun in addition to the summer/winter aspects. If I needed to print/export these views, I'd probably rate the app higher.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
