About this app

SunOnTrack (formerly Sunnytrack) transforms your phone or tablet into a great tool calculating & simulating the sun's position, path and shadows for every place in the world, at any time. Visualized in different views, for example on the map or on your live camera image using Augmented Reality. See the height of the sun, its direction (azimuth) and its detailed path from sunrise till sunset.

PHILOSOPHY: No ads. No user tracking. SunOnTrack tracks the sun, but only the sun, not the user! For sure. Furthermore, this app is a professional product. Therefore, it can be bought for a one-time price to get all the high quality features it offers at once, without distracting ads or the need for further in app purchases.

☀️ You attach importance to photographing perfectly illuminated photo scenes? 📷 Being a great photographer you will never miss optimal light situations again. SunOnTrack gives you the opportunity to exactly plan sun position and Blue Hour/dusk 🌃 for your scenes. Regardless of whether landscape or object photography, light plays an important role.

☀️ New flat? Searching/Planning for a house? Adapting your house with a solar panel? Not only great for individuals but also for professional real estate agents. Check the light and shadows, for all seasons of the year. When does the sun shine through the window in living room? 🌅 Where exactly is sunrise, where is sunset? And when? In Augmented Reality (AR) 3D-View SunOnTrack overlays your live camera image with sun path and more information for any day. Also in photovoltaics, find optimal angles.

☀️ Simulate shadows cast by objects in the sunlight using Shadow Simulation mode. 🌳 You can see the length and direction of the shadow, a tree or a building throws on your garden. Or use it to track when the hill next to your house shadows your plot.

☀️ Save and easily revisit places like popular photo scenes or other objects like houses. 📍

☀️ Data View 📈 provides lots of detailed information and times on sun position like length of day, solar noon, sunrise and sunset, and times for dusk and dawn (also Blue Hour and Golden Hour).

This a a very useful app for a photographer or for gardening and so on when knowing the position of the sun is important. If I'm going to drive a long way to photograph something, I can plan to arrive when the light is soft, etc. I would like it if there was an option to have the app run against the clock and automatically track in real time. Good work. Thanks.

I was skeptical to pay this much for an app without trying it first, but when I did, l immediately was happy. Showed me exactly what I wanted to see planning solar on a property I own, while I'm not there, at 2am. I could model the trees and buildings to see shadows thougout the day, on any day of the year. I can't wait to try the AR, and see if I got the tree heights any where near correct.

Great for finding the optimal position for my portable solar panel when out hiking or ensuring my car stays in the shade. Only minor issue is I cant find a simple way of returning back to the current time and date without closing & reopening the app. *Update* Today I was trying to use the app and it refused to correctly identify my location & kept jumping from one wrong location to another rendering it useless. When I returned home it found my location within seconds. Only 3 stars now as buggy.

Hi Chris, glad you like Sunnytrack. Click on date/time and click the "Now" button. UPDATE: The GPS position SUNNYTRACK gets from your phone is the one it shows. If it jumps or is incorrect, this is not the apps fault. Try to find clear sky above you. Please consider that in your review. Enjoy the app! Sunny regards.
