    This APP has been great for planning astronomical viewing, boating, photography, and flying events. It is also very useful for planning yard work times, to limit sun exposure.

    Great app to see where the sun is in relation to the house. You can put an address and see the arrows showing the direction of sunlight. It’s easy to adjust to different months and see how light changes. The augmented reality is a nice touch. More user friendly and better overall app than LightTrac.
  • Easy to use and powerful

    The best sun direction tool no matter where you are on the planet... that has access to cell or Wi-Fi.

    I’ve had this app for years. It started out very good, and every year it has gotten better with incremental additions and improvements. Other app developers would do well to use it as a model. Intuitive yet feature-rich, user-friendly, updated regularly, etc.
  • Great product for Solar Power planning!
