Ansel Adams dedicates the beginning of his first book "Taos Pueblo" to visualization. He introduced the idea of "previsualization", which involved the photographer imagining what he wanted his final print to look like before he even took the shot. Of course there are many great photos which were taken impromptu. However, for landscape photographers, being able to previsualize the scene before going there will greatly reduce the chance of being caught unprepared and will greatly increase the chance of getting better shots.

Photographers use various tools to help them pre-visualizing the scene. Nowadays, many of those tools are phone apps. PlanIt! is all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map and simulated viewfinder technologies (VR, AR etc.) to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the Sun, Moon, Stars and Milky Way. Some questions that you might ask yourself before going out for a photographing trip are:

* Where is the Sun or the Moon at the time and the location and to see the animation of the Sun/Moon/Stars/Milky Way movements as in real?

* When and which azimuth is the Sunset or Sunrise today or on any date at any location around the world?

* Do I get a clear view of subject from a certain location where is no mountain blocking the view?

* What lens should I bring in order to capture the whole width or the height of the scene?

* If the scene is too wide, how many shots do I need to take to create a panorama and how many angle should each shot cover and how many angle should I rotate the camera between each shot?

* How do I compose the scene considering the subject’s elevation and the sun or moon location?

* Is tonight a good time for star trail photography? How long can I exposure without being affected the rising moon?

* What are the dates and times to have Milky Way at certain position on the sky?

If you are interested in the answers of any questions above, the PlanIt! is the right app for you. In a simple app, we included Tools feature for you which allow you to find out GPS coordinates, elevation, distance, elevation gain, direct view, focal length, depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, and all of those are represented to you visually on the map and sometimes in a simulated viewfinder. In addition, the Ephemeris features include the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and location, twilights, special hours of the day, position of the Sun and the Moon, Sun/Moon Finder, more than 100 stars (such as Polaris) azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning and exposure time calculation, time-lapse and hyperlapse calculation, milky way searching, exposure/ND calculator, light meter, bub timer etc. Again, all of them are either represented on the map or in the viewfinder.

YES This is very helpful even being Free with limited tools. I will be updating soon for the full package of tools especially after I noticed the customer service on here is by far the best I've seen from any apps. Other devs need to take notes from y'all :) Thank you

Personal help and customer care is top notch So I was having issues to put it lightly and emailed the developer not knowing what would come of it. Well within hours I had been walked through this app and was taught how to use it quite well.....still a few issues I'm reading up on through the thoroughly well thought out help section. Look if you do any nightscape or astrophotography do yourself a favor skip the rest because this one is by far the ONLY one you need and support the developer get the paid version waaaay worth it!

Why 2.29€ then 6.89€? Why did I just pay two times to have all the features? I don't understand, please explain. Just by browsing through all the features I find the user interface to be cumbersome (compared to say Sun Surveyor, which is excellent), I guess this has a considerably long learning curve but I will dig through the tutorials, no problem. Right now I'm giving it only 3 stars because I don't understand why did I have to pay twice. Isn't the 'simple' version free (besides I already had it installed once months ago!)? UPDATE: after your reply I've received a 2.29€ refund hours ago so that matter is settled. I've spent a couple of hours browsing through all the features and I can only say 'wow!' this is really a feature packed software, I only wish the interface was more user friendly, like Sun Surveyor's. Overall one has to slide and click things a bit too much to reach almost all the features. For that reason only I now give it 4 stars,not 5. PS: please make the time slider more accessible and easier to work with. It doesn't seem possible to step in time at given intervals (e.g. +/-1 day at a given hour). A simple button to toggle between 'day-hour-minutes' precision would be of great help.
