Sun Seeker

Sun Seeker


Sun Seeker provides a FLAT VIEW COMPASS and an AUGMENTED REALITY CAMERA 3-D VIEW showing the solar path, its hour intervals, its winter and summer solstice paths, rise and set times and more and a MAP VIEW showing solar direction for each daylight hour.

Just like the highly acclaimed iOS version of Sun Seeker!

Ideal for
* Real Estate Buyers - for finding the sun exposure of properties you are considering
* Gardeners - for finding optimal planting locations for current and seasonal solar exposure
* Photographers - for planning optimal light conditions
* Architects - for getting a feel for the spatial variability of the solar angle throughout the year
* Campers - to find shadowed areas, even when sun is hidden by clouds or walls

Main Features
* Uses GPS, magnetometer, accelerometers and gyroscope to find the correct solar position and path for your current location and device orientation
* Flat compass view showing current solar position, diurnal solar angle and elevation (separated into day & night segments), shadow length ratio, atmospheric path thickness
* 3D augmented reality camera overlay view showing the sun's current position, its path with hour points marked
* Camera view also has an optional pointer to guide you towards the current location of the sun
* Map view showing solar direction arrows for each hour of the day with scrollable date/time.
* Ability to choose any date and view solar path for that day
* Ability to choose any location on earth
* Additional details including rise, set and culmination times, maximum elevation
* User option to include summer and winter solstice paths on both flat compass view and camera view

Notes
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.

Recent changes:
v4.5
* New compass/gyro switch allows manual heading adjustment and calibration via landmark in 3D view
* New ability to scroll through date/time in 3D view
* Updated for compatibility with latest Android releases

NEEDS UPDATE/iOS HAS WIDGET BUT NOT ANDROID Not being accurate I read what I can do. I see the iOS version has a couple things listed but the Android version does not. Another issue is I download a LITE (FREE) version of a competitor (Sun Surveyor) and it has a calibration tool that I used and it's version was spot on showing where the sun was. I switch to this app and now (after competitor app calibrated) it's working how it should. In short, work needs to be done and features added.

Missing snapshot button Hi guys. ..love your Sunseeker app and using it both on ios and Android... The only reason that I gave you 4 stars is below: Very often, I have to take a snapshot on location. However, it is very difficult as the only way ia to use "Share" button which is sometimes very difficult.. Can you add Snapshot button on the edge of live view screen, I beleive that would be great for functionality improvement. Thanks!
