** NOTE: the 3D Compass and Augmented Reality portions of this app make use of your device's compass. Some devices (HTC One V, HTC Desire C, etc) do not have a compass. The Maps and Details portion will remain unaffected. I do not ban any devices from installing this app, as some people have more than one device, such as tablets without cameras, or compasses, and I will gladly refund users if the app is not working for them.

    I'm serious, like, once you get used to knowing where the sun or moon is going to be, your whole shooting style will become more refined. Now all I need is an app to control the weather!

    As a traveling photographer, I use this app as part of my preproduction and production, great for scouting. The only thing missing is weather predictions for locations so I don't have to leave the app. Love the app!

    AR view is awesome. Seeing Sun Paths on future dates at your current location or anywhere else in the world...UI is incredible simple and clean.

    I photograph weddings and this is a great tool for planning where the light will be without having to visit the actual location. The UI is a bit dated but it does the job really well

    Use this app frequently, occasional crashes on galaxy Note 3 (issue not present on galaxy tab s 8.4) when repositioning/panning map view otherwise great. Use it to plan morning and evening photos as well as when we go camping to pick tent pitches and plan where the shade will be to keep the tent cool.
