By Kekoa Vincent
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The extended version of the popular app Sunrise Sunset. This PRO version includes everything from the standard version of Sunrise Sunset:
- Civil twilight begin (Dawn)
- Sun transit (Solar Noon)
- Civil twilight end (Dusk)
Custom Locations Support
- Define your own locations
And also includes the NEW Professional features:
- Sun position for times throughout the day
This version will offer much more additional information for those who need to keep track of where the sun will be on any particular day, and at any particular time.
If you only need the basic times of the day, check out the standard Sunrise Sunset app.
HOW TO READ THE POSITION TAB
The compass face will show the sun at a certain location. If the sun is near the outside of the ring, it is at a low inclination, such as at sunrise or sunset. The center of the compass is directly overhead(inclination 90 degrees).
Try using the position on a sunny day to see how the diagram matches up with the position of the sun.
What's New in Version 2.2.2
Compass fixes. Uses magnetic heading from your phone's compass. Updated to work with iOS 4.
I don't know what all the fuss is about. The compass is a little sticky and you have to shake your phone a bit to free it up, but that's a minor concern. Many small towns (in US states, anyway) to pick from Works as advertised. 5 stars from me.
Update fixes compass bug.
This long overdue update fixed the compass bug, however, it appears that the compass is set to magnetic north, instead of true north. I hope we aren't going to have to wait another year for fast app switching, retina display, and a setting for true or magnetic north.
Position feature broken
The slider at the bottom of the Position screen, which changes the time of day and sun position, is suddenly missing. A recent buggy update? An incompatibility with the newest IOS? Or an intentional removal of this feature? In any case this app is no longer very useful for me.
