Provides a FLAT VIEW COMPASS and an AUGMENTED REALITY CAMERA 3-D VIEW showing the solar path, its hour intervals, its winter and summer solstice paths, rise and set times and more and a MAP VIEW showing solar direction for each daylight hour.

Ideal for
* Real Estate Buyers - for finding the sun exposure of properties you are considering
* Gardeners - for finding optimal planting locations for current and seasonal solar exposure
* Photographers - for planning optimal light conditions
* Architects - for getting a feel for the spatial variability of the solar angle throughout the year
* Campers - to find shadowed areas, even when sun is hidden by clouds or walls

Main Features
* Uses GPS and magnetometer to find the correct solar position and path for your current location
* Flat compass view showing current solar position, diurnal solar angle and elevation (separated into day & night segments), shadow length ratio, atmospheric path thickness
* 3D augmented reality camera overlay view showing the sun's current position, its path with hour points marked
* Camera view also has an optional pointer to guide you towards the current location of the sun
* Map view showing solar direction arrows for each hour of the day.
* Ability to choose any date and view solar path for that day
* Ability to choose any location on earth
* Additional details including rise, set and culmination times, maximum elevation
* User option to include summer and winter solstice paths on both flat compass view and camera view

Notes
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.
* The compass accuracy is also reduced when the device is aligned with the local magnetic field vector, so there may be portions of the 3-D view where results are less reliable.

    As others said, it works great in iOS... Terrible on android.... I gave it a 5 star in iTunes...

    I also think its a waste of money. Trying to use it on my Samsung S4 the arrow never points directly at the sun and the whole app shakes like I've got alzhiemers or something worse. A refund would be good unless it can be improved dramatically

    Also migrated from iPhone, sun position is always wrong on android. I'm on a Galaxy S4. Awful steal of 6 dollars.

    With so many people migrating from iPhones to Android phones, like myself, apps that run on both systems need to be of the same quality and functionality. The time is always off on this app, it always thinks it's 11pm.

    The location of the sun is always off . I was using an iPhone version prior to this and it worked fine. Just doesn't work for the Android version.

    ABSOLUTE WASTE OF YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME. Does not work on my HTC One. It does not show where the path of the sun will be at, it just shows the sun's location as whereever I happen to be pointing the camera at. This is what I get for not reading the rev

    The app doesn't work well rather totally incorrect in 3d camera mode n this makes the whole purpose of buying it waste. I want to know if there something wrong with my app. Where is feedback?
