Sun Seeker 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.

Just like the highly acclaimed iOS version of Sun Seeker!

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, magnetometer, accelerometers and gyroscope to find the correct solar position and path for your current location and device orientation
* 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 with scrollable date/time.
* 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

* 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.

    I've had this app for a while. It's always been good, but with a few issues. The last couple of updates seem to have made it a lot more stable, with some cool new map features. Keep the updates coming!

    I was a little concerned given some of the reviews but whatever the problems were they must of all been cleared up by the time I bought this morning. Everything I've tried works beautifully. I cannot wait to dive even deeper in this. I really love the 3D features. I'm in real estate both as a buyer and seller and this handy little app is very helpful in determining sunrises and sunsets in the lay

    Been using app on all my Samsung phones until latest 2x releases 3d veiw won't project sun paths other than that it's great I love it the only thing it is missing is a snap shot button instead of a share button. Makes more sense to take the picture with one button press and deal with sharing afterwards.

    3D mode stopped working after the last update, clicking on 3D button and nothing happens, Nexus 5 here. Yes, it works better in iOS, but I've been using this app there for a long time and it wasn't perfect right away. I believe that they'll make it work great on android as well.
