User Reviews for Sun Surveyor Lite

App Very Useful For Astronomy Project

This app was very useful in terms as knowing where the sun is going to be at a given time. I was able to use the app in order to determine the exact location of the sun. Overall very useful, thank you.

Sun off by more than 10 degrees

This app is very nice, except for the fsct that the sun is reading more than 10 degrees to the left than where it actually is in the sky. Other astronomy apps I use give the correct azimuth reading. There is no way the sun can be at solar noon at azimuth 163 degrees. It always is at 180, unless the app takes into consideration your street’s orientation from true north??? Not worth buying the full version until this can get resolved, if another app update wver gets pushed out, that is...

Best in class

Simply the best app for sunrise, sunset, twilight, blue hour, sun position, etc. Visual and list form. Not just for photographers and solar professionals, great for birdwatchers and setting up camp! I like it so much I upgraded to the paid version even though I didn't need the extra features!

Very simple to use / great info and graphics

Easy install and really no set up. Great for figuring out the sun path over your house during different times of the year for landscaping planning.

Very cool!

This is a review of the Lite version, the full currently costs about $6 USD.The 3D Compass is a very neat toy to help locate the sun.The details of the sun position can be very useful for everything from picnicking, to hunting/fishing, to photography. The help file is a bit lacking. There are a few features on the compass not properly detailed in the file. If you're looking for app to track the sun, this will work fine.

The compass is always off

Every time I open I have to recalibrate and it doesn’t matter how many times I do the figure 8 it just doesn’t want to point north where north is. It basically makes it useless to me (and I am not near any magnets!)

Great app!

This is such a cool app! There are so many things that you can do with it. My favorite part is the 3D compass where you can tell exactly where the sun is at any time. You can even use your camera, and if you point it at the sun, it will tell you exactly where the sun is going.

Legit so far.

As a photographer shooting outdoors, I just need to know when the sun is coming up and going down. This does that cleanly and simply. 👌🏽

Wish to make the version free

Lite version totally unusable

Live, street, and map view needs upgrade to full version to function. Lite version only shows dots and general proximity of the sun in the entire city. Useless unless you upgrade, but you can’t be sure how the full version works so risk is there.
