** NOTE: the 3D Compass and Augmented Reality portions of this app make use of your device's compass. Some devices (HTC One V, HTC Desire C, etc) do not have a compass. The Maps and Details portion will remain unaffected. I do not ban any devices from installing this app, as some people have more than one device, such as tablets without cameras, or compasses, and I will gladly refund users if the app is not working for them.
Take better photos by simply knowing when the sun sets and rises. This is a great tool for photographers and hikers! The sunset and sunrise times are extremely useful if you want to take good looking photos. To get good landscape photos you should be at the shooting location near sunset or sunrise, usually the best photos can be taken just after sunrise or just before sunset, but sometimes the light and sky can look good for as long as one hour after sunset while the sky gradually turns blue. The reason photos often look bad in the midday sun is that the light has very sharp shadow edges and the light intensity is too high. Take better photos with the help of this app!
Permissions needed: Coarse Location, used to calculate the sunset and sunrise times based on your location.
Swipe the hour wheel at bottom to move backward and forward in time.
Since this is an early version I would appreciate if you could send me any feedback on the application to: email@example.com. Please mail me if you have problems with the app, rather than just give a bad rating. Thank you.

Hassle free return policy. If you like the app, please rate and review it! If you don't, please contact me and let me know how I can make it better. If you have a feature you think should be added, let me know about it. I am considering adding the lunar path, and the ability to change the date while viewing the paths in the camera view.
NOTE: Some users have noticed a problem after upgrading to Gingerbread (2.3.3). Gingerbread has a compass bug, causing issues with apps that use the compass/accelerometer. Google "Gingerbread compass" for more information.
In this app you can view sun-data of multiple locations. These can be defined manually or automatically by getting your GPS- or network location. Furthermore it is possible to add reminder for the events, that you do not miss them. Additionally you have the opportunity to manually set timezones of the locations, which can be helpful if you are planning trips to locations with another timezone than the one, where you currently are in.
Note: the calculated values are approximations. Additionally it depends on weather situation, how good or if the blue or golden hour is visible.

Ansel Adams dedicates the beginning of his first book "Taos Pueblo" to visualization. He introduced the idea of "previsualization", which involved the photographer imagining what he wanted his final print to look like before he even took the shot. Of course there are many great photos which were taken impromptu. However, for landscape photographers, being able to previsualize the scene before going there will greatly reduce the chance of being caught unprepared and will greatly increase the chance of getting better shots.
Photographers use various tools to help them pre-visualizing the scene. Nowadays, many of those tools are phone apps. This Photographer's Field Tools (or PFT in short) is all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the Sun, Moon and stars. Some questions that you might ask yourself before going out for a photographing trip are:
* Where is the Sun or the Moon at the time and the location?
* When and which azimuth is the Sunset or Sunrise today or on any date at any location around the world?
* Where should I go to get a nice view of the scene?
* How far am I from the scene and at what angle will I look at my subject?
* Do I get a clear view of subject from a certain location where is no mountain blocking the view?
* What lens should I bring in order to capture the whole width or the height of the scene?
* How do I compose the scene considering the subject’s elevation and the sun or moon location?
* Can I get the composition I want using one shot so that both foreground and background are in focus or will I have to take multiple shots and stitch them together because of the depth of field is not large enough?
* How many shots do I need to take to create a panorama and how many angle should each shot cover and how many angle should I rotate the camera between each shot?
* Is tonight a good time for star trail photography? How long can I exposure without being affected the rising moon? Where should I aim at the sky to get the Polaris at the center?
If you are interested in the answers of any questions above, the PFT is the right tool for you. In a simple app, we included Tools feature for you which allow you to find out GPS coordinates, elevation, distance, elevation gain, whether there is a direct view between two locations on the map, focal length (both horizontally and vertically, landscape orientation or portrait orientation), depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, and all of those are represented to you visually on the map. In addition, the Ephemeris features include the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and location, twilights, special hours of the day, position of the Sun and the Moon, Sun/Moon Finder, more than 100 stars (such as Polaris) azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning and exposure time calculation, timelapse and hyperlapse calculation etc.
And we also promise you that more exciting features are on the way in the next few releases!

Using Flashback Camera is super easy. Just launch the app like you would any other camera app, and take a picture. If you want to frame out your subject by adding another layer, you can take a second photo to achieve that effect.
Once you've cropped out your subject, the fun begins. You can subtly rotate and scale the subject layer to accentuate the effect of a photo sitting on top of a photo. Of course you can apply familiar Instagram-style filters like sepia, black and white, grunge, bleach, punch, nostalgic, sun faded, toy camera, vintage, and vibrant, as well as border effects like rounded, vintage, Polaroid-style, and black borders.
When your Flashback photo composition looks just right, add a caption to tell the story behind the photograph. All of life's little everyday moments contain a story that is dear to our hearts! Share easily via Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest with your friends and the world.
