Notice: If you have a black screen saying the Google Play Service is updating but it actually does nothing. Here is the workaround: Go to Android Settings - Apps - Google Play Service - Storage - Clear Cache, then restart your phone and go to the Google Play Store to upgrade the Google Play Service.
In this free app, the Ephemeris feature is provided as in-app purchase which will be the same as the PlanIt! Pro after the purchase. Some screenshots listed here have Ephemeris features enabled. The free version with the Ephemeris features can actually do a lot things than you thought. It is a plan/marker file reader, a focal length estimator on the map, a DOF calculator, a panorama calculator, a map with marker features. The Ephemeris features are all inter-connected so it is hard for us to provide some ephemeris features in the free version and ask you to pay for the rest. Although we didn't provide a trial, please feel free to purchase to try it. We can refund you at any time if you don't like it.

This is a special call to landscape photographers, travel photographers, nature photographers and those who are interested in night photography, city photography, time-lapse, star-trails, milky way or astrophotography: look no more, this is the ultimate app for you - Planit! for Photographers. It only costs you a cup of Frappuccino but will save you tons of time and effort and a lot of gas money. The most importantly, it will make you enjoy the landscape photography even more.
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. PlanIt! is an all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map and simulated viewfinder technologies to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the ground subjects and the celestial objects such as the Sun, the Moon, Stars, Star-trails and Milky Way.
In a single app, we packed it with features - from location scouting such as GPS coordinates, elevations, distance, elevation gain, clear view, focal length, depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, to the Ephemeris features such as the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and direction, twilight time, special hours of the day, sun/moon finder, major stars, constellations, nebulae azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning, time-lapse calculation and simulation, milky way searching, exposure/ND filter calculator, light meter, bulb timer, rainbow position prediction, tide search etc. All the information are either represented on the map as an overlay or visually presented in a simulated viewfinder (VR, picture, or street view), just like you look through your camera's viewfinder. Whatever you want for your landscape photography, it is there in the Planlt!.
