Weather Map Overlay Request Purchased the app and can't wait to plan my next photographic expedition. Sure wish I had known about it sooner. To help with day of shoot, how about adding a 'Weather Bug' map overlay option.
Great for picturing where the sun and moon will be at any given time in my photos but it drives me crazy the app can't (or won't) use my phone's current GPS position to place me on the map. Cue a whole bunch of infuriating pinch zooming and scrolling if I'm somewhere without a physical address. I don't do lots of pre-planning for photos, I want an app that quickly gives me real time info when I'm on the go - this app has the info but not always quickly accessible. I'm going to try the Sun Surveyor app.
Not really impressed The app is nice and has some useful features. However, it foesn't offer anything that free apps don't offer already and in better quality. In addition, the interface is bugged: For me, searching for a location does not work. Google maps can find the name I'm looking for, but this app cannot and just says "Could not find ..." Disappointing! For that price, I was expecting more!
Good app This Ephemeris isn't the most fully featured Ephemeris out there, nor is it my favorite. The user interface could use some updating, & it would be nice to see some Bortel Dark Sky info & other features added in. However, it's ability to show the focus point's declination angle above the horizon, & compare that to the Sun and the moon declination angle above or below the horizon at any given moment in time makes it worth every penny. TPE does this far & away better than the other Ephemeris apps out there.
Excellent Start to A Solid App; Needs Certain Features to be Better This is one of the few apps i have purchased from the store that almost never crashes. Overall great design and function, but it is missing one of the features I found most useful when I had the iPhone version; exporting saved locations. It would also be nice to have a feature that lets you snap a photo of a location and have it synced to the saved geotag for reference at a later date. A third feature that would be helpful is cloud sync through either google or Dropbox.
This is a great app ... it would be even better ... This is a great app ... it would be even better if you could find a way to populate the app with Bortal Dark Sky information so photographers could get an approximate idea of how dark the sky is expected to be at any given photo location. That way, trying to shoot the Milky Way or other dark sky shots would be easier to predict. I like to shoot these shots when camping but it is impossible to get a feel for whether it will be possible until I am there. A Bortal scale app with map would help that greatly.
