    When shooting there are only 3-4 hours of usable daylight, it is essential to take advantage of every minute. Sun Seeker shows you the exact location and intensity of the sun during your shoot so that you can set up your set beforehand to get the best lighting possible.

    Site analysis is an integral process in the work-life of an architect. With Sun Seeker, you've got a virtual compass to locate the angle, position, and path of the sun at any point in the day. Use the interactive 3D view to determine how much sunlight a building you're working on will receive.

    Most plants need plenty of sunshine. Others will require only 2 or 3 hours of it. If you want to make sure your green friends are getting all the light they need, use this monitor to keep an eye on the situation.

  • Photographer’s/Real Estate must have Nov 20, 2020

    By Ivan Machiz
    You would not think this powerful tool inside your pocket/cell phone could be so useful, but it truly is. As a professional photographer/videographer, I use it all the time to find The lighting I want for my shop. Especially on low budget shoots where they do not want to pay for my time to scout the location in advance, I can still know when to show up for the best lighting. As a REALTOR®,Many of my clients are seeking homes that face a particular direction. Sun Seeker absolutely helps with that. From inside a location I can tell clients where to look for the sun from any point in the house at any time of the year. Want to know if your rear deck will be too hot to eat at the height of summer?, I can tell you that. Want to know the best place to plant your garden? No problem. Want to know if a building is going to block the sun from you next December when the sun is lower on the horizon? No problem. Sunseeker is my go to application for this and so much more. I highly recommend it.
  • Much improved app Oct 18, 2018

    By Scooter 82
    I originally rated this app one star because it bombarded me with pop ups to rate it. So I did, one star. Because it was unusable. Thankfully an update fixed the developers over zealous need for ratings and the app is useful again. I recently used the app in Thailand where I’m searching for a piece of land with a view of the sunset over the mountains. It was indispensable as the realtor always told me the land met my requirements. Often times it did not and I showed them the proof. Even better, this app gives you sunset and sunrise paths for not only the current day but for other days and months throughout the year. This allowed me to see where the sunset would be for the time period I will be here, most of the winter. Excellent app well worth the cost.

    Have been house hunting lately. The app has helped me amazingly with deciding which houses to consider and which ones to reject. Good sun exposure and natural light is really important for me.
  • Killer App for Kanarraville - Annular Solar Eclipse Nov 11, 2019

    By Celerondon
    I it is still working great for this November 2019 Transit of Mercury!recently purchased and installed this app on a 3Gs running the updated iOs without mishap. Last weekend, our group of five went to Utah for the annular solar eclipse on 20 May 2012. In Kanarraville, Utah, this app enabled me to accurately predict where the Sun would set. I accomplished this feat without practice and with an unfamiliar horizon. Bravo! Update 2014 This app is still going strong for me. Sun Seeker is a valuable tool for astrophotographers. I use this app often and it is unsurpassed for plotting and framing solar eclipse photographs. Update 2018 SS is getting better as time passes. This augmented reality (AR) app is always great but it a key part of my eclipse observing toolkit. I used it again last summer in Oregon for the total solar eclipse. SS still works fine with my new iPhone 8+ and never seems to crash. The map feature is neat and well executed. Seeing how time affects the azimuth range of the Sun is useful and fascinating. 6*!

  • A must for anyone designing a solar focused home. Jan 5, 2019

    By tr1ee7
    My wife and I are designing a solar focused home in NM, USA. Sifting through overly technical websites with mountains of raw data left us starving for usable information specific to our homesite. This app not only translates such data into usable information for today’s date but, gives us projections of where the sun will be throughout the year. Now we are able to site our future home with (solar) precision as well as make better decisions as to the exact nature of our structure’s design to maximize solar gain for the winter and shade for the summer.

  • Indispensable for camera people Jan 30, 2019

    By Ted Morée
    Whether you’re shooting video or still photos, scripted or documentary, this app is essential. Even more crucial for time lapse shooters. Any weather app can tell you when the sun will rise and set, but this one shows you exactly where with AR overlays using your phone’s camera, so you’ll know precisely when the sun will be blocked by that building. Or you can look at a location map with the sun’s course clearly marked. Must-have when scouting locations for any type of camera work.

  • Use of sun seeker Sep 4, 2018

    By coolmoneyDee
    Very difficult to find instruction on the use of this app. Cannot set a location easily. Cannot get the compass to show north at top of window. This all used to be easy. Updates have made all operations difficult. Not intuitive. Only seems useful when used at the home location. I need to predict light in another part of the country at a future date.
  • Not accurate at all Oct 13, 2017

    By TiredEyes77
    This app was way off as far as the mapping the sun. I’ve tried it in several locations and it’s not only off on timing but also on elevation. I really love the interface and features (which is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1) but it’s useless to me as a photography tool if it’s not even close.

  • Amazing tool! Gyroscope mode is better Mar 16, 2019

    By Adventures in odyssey fan
    This app has helped with my real estate videos and planning the timing to get the best natural lighting. Although the default 3D mode is easier to set up, but gyroscope mode is more accurate as you can adjust the actually position you’re in. Wish it was default as normal mode is about 1/2 hour off for me usually. The map mode is my favorite though.
  • Twilight in the middle of the day? Jul 6, 2019

    By Oakie46
    After recent update I’m getting notifications e stopped on their own. of twilight, golden hour, blue hour, etc in the middle of the day. The notifications seem to cluster around noon local daylight savings time. Random notifications appear to have stopped on their own, or possibly as a result of a subsequent update.
  • Great for Landscape Designers Jun 2, 2019

    By kitzwilly
    This is a simple way to check sun’s path in every month. I can determine if there is enough sun for certain plants by checking the angles, especially for fall and early spring. It’s a bit difficult to extrapolate the info on the chart to actual conditions, although the 3D helps.
  • Good but not as precise as I would like Oct 1, 2019

    By doloop123
    The app provides much useful information but I have noticed that some of the calculations are a bit off. For example, the shadow length information (in my location) errs by about 6-7%. But, the app is still interesting and useful.

    By The Sidewinder Three-Thousand
    This is a remarkable app. But please developers, add a feature that makes it visually obvious when Blue Hour and Golden Hour are. Like in the map overview, you could makes the lines showing the suns location and direction blue or gold. Add that functionality and it’s 5 Stars all the way.
  • Slow to orient when first turned on Feb 3, 2019

    By Daud R
    Sometimes the app takes a few minutes to orient. I can see the sun, but the app says it’s 30 degrees from where it really is. Once it finally gets oriented it’s great. So, turn it on a while before you really need it.
