Customers about Sun Locator

this App is a MUST BUY. Sun Locator takes the Sun and Moon information to a whole new level of UI and usefulness, because of the added Map view, where you can actually see the arc of the Sun in 3D for any day and any location. Sun Locator Pro is excellent. [...]

Fun to know where the sun will rise our set. I also use it to teach kids about the seasons.

The app is useful to me in connection with my work as a photographer, especially in real estate photography, architecture and sometimes business. It also helps me in landscape picture.
Excellent application, very complete and flexible, simple to use but powerful, highly recommended

Great to set the path of light in the set of photos and footage and especially for timelapse.
