Note

The device’s compass accuracy can be optimised by calibrating it prior to use. See app’s FAQs for more help.

Fantastic

Wish I’d found this a long time ago. We live full time in an Airstream travel trailer and use portable solar panels. This app has been invaluable for checking sun exposure during the day when in or near trees. Before it was just guesswork where to set up.

Best utility app I own

I’ve been using this app for years, I use it to determine what apartment to rent (where the sun will shine in which windows at what time of the year), to choosing seats at a restaurant (oh the sun will pass by that tree in about 10 minutes and we’ll be in full sun let’s sit elsewhere). Worth the cost at full price.
