  • App ist ok, aber…

    von frub7
    Die App tut, was sie soll. Prima. Aber das GUI. Die Farben. Erinnert mich an die 70er-Jahre und bietet stellenweise unzureichenden Kontrast.
  • Perfekte, sehr nützliche App

    von Martinmuc1
    Auf die App wurde ich durch einen Fotografen auf YouTube aufmerksam, der damit seine Shootings plante, wann er von wo das beste Licht bekam. Mittlerweile nutze ich die App auch dafür, aber auch bei meiner Wohnungssuche und Hausbau. Man konnte genau sehen, wie lange und aus welcher Richtung zu jeder Jahreszeit an einem Ort die Sonne scheint. Der 3D-Modus ist perfekt und blendet den Sonnenverlauf in das reale Bild der Kamera ein. Die App ist ihr Geld wert.

  • Super hilfreiche App

    von robixx
    Zeigt mir wo die Sonne zu einer anderen Uhrzeit und/oder Datum steht. Toll!
  • Absolute top of the notch! Best location tour tool!

    von mypointofview
    Thanks for the latest update fixing the location data even during holiday season! Amazing! It's getting better and better but still one of my major drawbacks is EXPOSURE CONTROL! Looking against the sun in 3D mode produces only underexposed screenshots. This is actually pretty useless to show to a client to explain where the sun rises and and sets with "silhouette" like location pictures Thanks
  • Great but...

    von Michael C. Moore
    This developer likes *his* color sheme. I‘d enjoy preferences to switch of or adjust background color myself. Language settings are generally standard, missing too. App works great, like it very much.
