Chapingha's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 9/8/18 3:43 PM
I use this app everyday at work as a filmmaker but I have also used it when looking at apartments to rent, to see what time a sunset or sunrise will be... So many uses and precise enough to get me in the ballpark for lighting. I especially love the 3D View feature for seeing when a window will get direct light or not, when the sun will pop over that mountain or tree, etc.
coolmoneyDee's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 9/4/18 5:35 PM
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.

Daud R's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
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.

I have used this app for wilderness navigation, and planning the window coverings of my new, to me, residence. It is also perfect for planning solar installations.
Ted Morée's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
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.

anny&k's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
I think tris app is waste of money. There are better apps, it doesn’t help me at all as a photographer. It is just a compass! And why would you pay for compass if you have it for free on your phone!
Adventures in odyssey fan's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
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.

kitzwilly's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
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.
tr1ee7's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
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.

I use it to scout for 360 photosphere shoots. Also for where to place outdoor thermometers. Ruled out a backyard garden plot when the 3D view showed the location would remain shaded in the summer.

Not sure if this is a good app or not. I paid the money for it and while trying to use the app today I am bombarded with pop-ups asking me to review it. Keeps getting in the way of actually using the app. So my rating now is one star.

A great app for tracking the sun over the year from any location. Easy to use and informative.

As I’m trying to play with the app it asked me 6 times 6 TIMES! to rate it. Thirsty is the only way I can describe this app so far. I am writing this with out testing the app dimply because of how many Fing times it asked me. One star is all you get!

The Sidewinder Three-Thousand's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 6/26/18 8:07 PM
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.

Celerondon 's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 5/5/18 2:36 PM
I 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*!

Sun Seeker app saves me hours of guessing. After I arrive on site, I start my recon. of where I what to shoot and check compositions. Make my notes and open Sun Seeker, go to Maps for Shadow Ratio. It displays time of day to return for lighting I prefer. No more estimating of time. Great App.
bloudermilk's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 3/18/18 5:07 PM
I’ve wanted an app like this for years. So much that I nearly built it myself. Buying this app was my last effort before starting that process and I’m glad I did. Sun Seeker delivers on its core promise of being the easiest way to track the sun for any location on earth. We just used it to place the planter beds in our new home and I’m sure I’ll use it in the future to plan photo shoots or place buildings. Just a great app executed very well.

As an architectural photographer (and crime fighter) I need to know the location of the sun to create amazing images. Sun Seeker is the app that accurately shows me where the sun will be at any time on location, so that I am always at the right place at the right time to press the shutter. I have used this reliable app for years and you should too if you need to track the sun.

As a photographer this app is AMAZING!! I don't have to scout out locations at sunrise or sunset anymore!

I have the sun survayer app and that will show you a picture of the location you enter so I can actually see where the sun rises or dips over the mountain. This app only gives you a birds grid and a street view using a street map, which is not helpful in my case. If I’m missing something here I would love to know.

I find this app very useful in setting the elevation of my two solar panels on my RV.

Scooter 82's Review of Sun SeekerReviewed on 10/18/18 3:27 AM
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.

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.
