The best for knowing where to be at Sunrise / Sunset

Want to get great sunrise / sunset pictures. Look for a high pressure cell to your east or west, then use lighttrac to find a great vantage point.

Handy, well-designed

LightTrac is a great tool for figuring out where the big glowing thing is going to be, whether you're planning a wedding on the beach or just setting up a good shot of the skyline. Nice work!

Nice App

This app is great for me as a photographer. It is very helpful to see where the sun will be at any time of day. I use it almost daily.

Great for Drone Aerial photography!

Lets you know when you would be flying into the sun or when the sun would interfere with your FPV monitor on the ground! You can plan your shot for best video/photo and best operator position. - Since I'm on the coast, tide predictions would be useful to me as well

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love this app. It's been critical in planning shoots and I've missed it ever since I decided to get a real tablet instead of an iOS toy and bought a Surface Pro 2. This app provides all the info you could ever need when scouting locations for a shoot!

Great App!

any chance you could use the onboard maps in win 10? hard to get a fix when offline. Also would be good if we could move the pin around, and it would stay on point when zooming.
