If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired. The device’s compass accuracy can be optimised by calibrating it prior to use.

  • Это хорошо

    От Kungfuzzi
    Случается, программа немного лагает, но к чести разработчиков, с каждым её обновлением, приложение становится всё совершенней.
  • Не правильно показывает

    От Gxd99
    Не правильно показывает положение солнца через фотокамеру. Примерно на час. Возможно, из-за неправильных данных о зимнем времени.
  • Отлично

    От achernov
    Отличное приложение, незаменимо для фотографов или если просто живёшь в Петербурге, позволяет планировать белые ночи 😀
  • Отлично

    От Alex-Talk
    Отличное приложение, несмотря на отсутсвие русского все понятно и отлично работает. Для тех кто часто снимает очень полезно!
  • Очень помогает для определения мередианного времени.

    От Архат
  • Хорошо

    От Cry4man
    В целом очень хорошее и нужное приложение. Только стало часто глючить на 4м iPhone. Не запускается иногда и 3D не везде работает.
  • Не работает без интернета

    От Bogomyako
    В горах, где нет сотовой связи, бесполезна Iphone 4s ios 7.06
  • Дорого

    От makslevin
    Дороговато, но вполне себе применимо
  • Архи-удобно для планирования участка

    От Sergey Nsk
    Легко увидеть как будет падать солнце в любом месте земли в любой день года. Выбираешь место на карте и одним движением пальца смотришь как в течении года меняется ход солнца. Сразу видишь куда что ставить
  • Very very cool

    От Archearer
    I'm an architect and I've bought this app for my work. This is simply AMAZING and VERY helpful tool for using on project sites. Now I can see how, when and from what side sunrays will penetrate to the future building. Definitly thanks to this app my iPad now not only a toy, but also a pro tool. And I must say, when I show possibilities of this programm to my clients directly at building area, they are always very impressed too. What I'd like to see at future versions: - Video recording of 3d view with augmented reality. It's really necessary! - Possibility of zooming camera view. - It's not easy, but maybe developers can combine this programm with any 3d-files viewer, and architects will can look at insolation in their future buildings.
