Good app, main screen is very aesthetically pleasing and tells me exactly what I need to know. I will say a few small, nitpicky things though, having the settings icon in both the top right and in the left menu panel is a bit redundant. Also The highlighting on the menu panel is a bit inconsistent, as I'll leave the settings menu and be back at the home screen, I'll pull the panel back out and settings will still be highlighted.

This is a simple, efficient sun tracker app. It gives you exactly the info you need without unnecessary fluff. The additional paid features aren't necessary, but do improve the utility of the app. The simple interfere and quick access to relevant information has made it one of my most used photo apps.

Nice app. Simple and light. The way a utility app should be. With that said, being a photographer myself, whats the possibility of adding some truly basic weather data for the same location that the app knows as 'current location'. What I'm thinking is just to do a query from a weather service for some basic forecast data such as: Hi temp Lo temp Probability of precipitation Cloudy-ness (if data exists) Winds All things that a photographer would need to know. ;)
