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:
v4.2
* Many interface enhancements for a better experience on Android
* Data from tables may now be shared in csv format
* Fixes for several device-specific problems

v4.1
* Major upgrade to map view - search for and save locations, scroll through date and time
* Improved handling of camera properties compatibility issues, and trapping of errors

If you like the update, or this release fixes previous problems you've had, then please leave an app review and/or rating. It really helps!

Amazing Application!!!! Extremely useful for gardening. After applying the information provided by this application I was able to figure out why my veggies weren't having successful turnouts. Also being in architecture/real estate this program made designing homes for sale much more practical in relation to the suns impact and coverage of the area. I will absolutely be recommending this application to my colleagues & friends!!!

Great on iphone, bad on Android 3D View just rotates horizontally and doesn't lock in.

Thanks for the updates! I've had this app for a while. It's always been good, but with a few issues. The last couple of updates seem to have made it a lot more stable, with some cool new map features. Keep the updates coming!

Love this App! I was a little concerned given some of the reviews but whatever the problems were they must of all been cleared up by the time I bought this morning. Everything I've tried works beautifully. I cannot wait to dive even deeper in this. I really love the 3D features. I'm in real estate both as a buyer and seller and this handy little app is very helpful in determining sunrises and sunsets in the layout of the property to be built. Great app I highly recommend it!
