About this app

Shows which parts of the world are in daylight, which are in twilight, and which are in darkness. The approximate positions of the sun and moon (projected on to the Earth) are also shown.

Various locations around the world can be selected. Takes into account timezones to show the current time in the selected location and also estimates the sunrise and sunset time. The date, time and speed of the simulation can also be changed.

The app also features an Android widget, which allows you put the map on your home screen. For users of Android 4.0+, the widget is resizeable.

Note: The app now supports being moved to the SD Card. If you move the app to SD card, the widget will not be available. This is a limitation of the Android system. To use the widget, the app MUST be installed on your phone's internal storage.

Now also allows you to explore alternative reality scenarios e.g. a change in the Earth's tilt (see "What If" section of Options menu).

Making requests / reporting problems: Sometimes people give low star ratings because their particular location or timezone is not included in the default list. Please don't use the rating system to "punish", instead just email me!

Upgrade to the Pro version is available. The pro version features:
- no advertising
- ability to define custom locations
To upgrade, tap on the Info button, then the "Pro Upgrade" option.

Generally good. Re Adelaide: statistics for city wrong but map with correct sunrise and sunset. Upgraded to kill ad-vert-s & get user loc. but time zones missing: no Nfld (GMT-3.5/-2.5) or N.C. Chile (despite Santiago) (GMT-4/-3) among others. Here it is the mid-2022 and none of the bugs I mentioned have been eliminated. When you are in Nfld, the time zone magically appears, otherwise, not available: strange. Apparently, I only got Nfld when I visited. The tablet I left behind doesn't have it

For once there is app content that is ideal for viewing in portrait mode (the day-night line is rather vertical at most inhabited latitudes) and guess what; this app is fixed in landscape mode. And what's wrong with a simple Patterson map projection, in stead of this squeezed stuff?

This is a cool app that lets you see the shadow of the earth on itself in real time - changes minute by minute and season to season so you can see day time and night time all over the world - other cool features the exact position where the sun and moon are directly overhead - lets you adjust day and time to see the map other than a live scenario - flags several world cities with optional crosshairs - really cool app
