    Sun Locator predicts the sun and moon position and path at a specific location during the course of a day.
    Anticipate lighting conditions in photography/filming, real estate, architecture, outdoor activities (e.g. setting up camp), solar panel positioning, gardening, and more.
    The Main View displays all the detailed information: sunrise/sunset, moonrise/moonset, blue hour, golden hour, solar noon, twilight times, moon phase and much more
    The Augmented Reality feature displays the solar position and lunar position directly overlaid on your device's camera. Use the slider to set the time of day and directly track the solar movement. [A device with a magnetometer (compass) is needed to use the AR feature]
    The Map feature displays the solar and lunar location, direction and shadow on a map to help you plan your activities.

    *Photography: when and where will the sun rise and set? When are the Blue hour and the golden hour? When and where will the moon shine tonight?
    *Gardening: do your plants get enough direct sunlight during the course of the day and year?
    *Real estate: does a neighboring building obstruct the sun and cause shade?
    *Architecture: How much sunshine will your home get? Does the sun shine through your window?
    *Camping: will the sun shine on your tent?
    *Hiking: when does dawn start and dusk end?
    *Solar panels: Will there be nearby obstructions?

    -Use your current GPS location or choose any location on a map
    -Save your favorite locations
    -Use the current time or choose any time of day
    -Get data about sunrise/sunset times, twilight (dusk/dawn), photography times (blue and golden hour)
    -Get data about moonrise/moonset and moon phase
    -View the sun's and moon’s position at the chosen location and time overlaid on your device's camera (Augmented Reality feature)
    -Overlay the sun and moon path on the map and anticipate the casting of shadow (Map feature)
    -Track the sun's and moon’s position by using the slider to set a time of day and day of year

    The Lite version is free and limited to information for the current day. The Pro version enables you to get information for any day of the year (and to adjust the height of the sun dial in the map view)

    -the AR feature relies on your device's internal compass. Calibrate your compass regularly to make sure the displayed solar position is accurate.
    -Devices without a compass will not be able to use the AR feature

    Hi. Great app. I was looking for app to visualize shadows from a building under construction. I recommend adding possibility to add multiple dials of different height for simultaneous visualization of shadows because I have to check shadows for different buildings for different seasons a bit troublesome. There's some issue with dates when you scroll it it goes to 2016, 15 etc but doesn't go up. Decided to buy the app, hope my wishes will be integrated. Another issue when choosing height, if I scroll it works fine, but if I enter height with dialpad instead of scrolling, it takes arrange height instead of 3 meters. Have a look

    Great app for estimating solar exposure. I was hoping the camera integration in the PRO version would allow me to take pictures of the view. But it doesn't. Will this feature be enabled soon? When evaluating a proposed location, the ability to snap a photo with the camera would be a great addition.

    Automatically main screen appears again and again . Need to re input Sundial height again an again . Hence useless.

    Great and useful app. One short question for the developer: how can I choose a point on the map? When I tap on that choosing, GMap doesn't open itself. Please help me to set places which I'm interested for trip. Tks.

    As a pro photographer this will help immensely in scheduling location shots. Now if only it could control the weather... :-)

    I would like to request instead of providing a selection between Day and Time, why not make it as a toggle, it saves us a click. It is tedious if I switch back and forth. Thanks.
