Urban Sunshine Maps shows currently sunny city spots. The map visualizes shadows thrown by inner city buildings at selected daytime hour. So it's easy to find sunny restaurants and cafés.
This is a must app for every urban sun worshiper: Find your sunny city spot! Like a sunny street café.
(1) Map starts at your current location
(2) Calculates today's solar positions
(3) Draws city shadows for selected hour
Works world-wide: In many metropolitan city-centers building details are available. Street level details are available in every city.
