Sun Seeker provides a FLAT VIEW COMPASS and an AUGMENTED REALITY CAMERA 3-D VIEW showing the solar path, its hour intervals, its winter and summer solstice paths, rise and set times and more and a MAP VIEW showing solar direction for each daylight hour.

Just like the highly acclaimed iOS version of Sun Seeker!

Ideal for
* Real Estate Buyers - for finding the sun exposure of properties you are considering
* Gardeners - for finding optimal planting locations for current and seasonal solar exposure
* Photographers - for planning optimal light conditions
* Architects - for getting a feel for the spatial variability of the solar angle throughout the year
* Campers - to find shadowed areas, even when sun is hidden by clouds or walls

Main Features
* Uses GPS, magnetometer, accelerometers and gyroscope to find the correct solar position and path for your current location and device orientation
* Flat compass view showing current solar position, diurnal solar angle and elevation (separated into day & night segments), shadow length ratio, atmospheric path thickness
* 3D augmented reality camera overlay view showing the sun's current position, its path with hour points marked
* Camera view also has an optional pointer to guide you towards the current location of the sun
* Map view showing solar direction arrows for each hour of the day with scrollable date/time.
* Ability to choose any date and view solar path for that day
* Ability to choose any location on earth
* Additional details including rise, set and culmination times, maximum elevation
* User option to include summer and winter solstice paths on both flat compass view and camera view

* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.

Whats new

    * Fixes possible crash after taking more than one photo in 3D view
    * Cosmetics enhancements
    * Fixes rare crash when accessing map view

Crash Crashes on 3d view

NEEDS UPDATE/iOS HAS WIDGET BUT NOT ANDROID Not being accurate I read what I can do. I see the iOS version has a couple things listed but the Android version does not. Another issue is I download a LITE (FREE) version of a competitor (Sun Surveyor) and it has a calibration tool that I used and it's version was spot on showing where the sun was. I switch to this app and now (after competitor app calibrated) it's working how it should. In short, work needs to be done and features added.

Good app but it does not work in Southern hemisphere Does not work properly on LG G3 in South Africa.

Missing snapshot button Hi guys. your Sunseeker app and using it both on ios and Android... The only reason that I gave you 4 stars is below: Very often, I have to take a snapshot on location. However, it is very difficult as the only way ia to use "Share" button which is sometimes very difficult.. Can you add Snapshot button on the edge of live view screen, I beleive that would be great for functionality improvement. Thanks!

Brian Walstad

Great on iphone, bad on Android 3D View just rotates horizontally and doesn't lock in.

Thom Roman

Love this App! I was a little concerned given some of the reviews but whatever the problems were they must of all been cleared up by the time I bought this morning. Everything I've tried works beautifully. I cannot wait to dive even deeper in this. I really love the 3D features. I'm in real estate both as a buyer and seller and this handy little app is very helpful in determining sunrises and sunsets in the layout of the property to be built. Great app I highly recommend it!

Thanks for the updates! I've had this app for a while. It's always been good, but with a few issues. The last couple of updates seem to have made it a lot more stable, with some cool new map features. Keep the updates coming!

Nick Montagnoli

Awesome Can even save an address I really like what this is able to do for me with ease. This is a most useful app good job.


3d veiw error on v4.02 Samsung S4 Been using app on all my Samsung phones until latest 2x releases 3d veiw won't project sun paths other than that it's great I love it the only thing it is missing is a snap shot button instead of a share button. Makes more sense to take the picture with one button press and deal with sharing afterwards.

David Whitmore

Does everything I want well. 10/10

Dalibor Nenadov

Location doesn't work It no longer works. Stuck on London location and can't change it.

Demetri Zuev

3D mode stopped working after the last update, clicking on 3D button and nothing happens, Nexus 5 here. Yes, it works better in iOS, but I've been using this app there for a long time and it wasn't perfect right away. I believe that they'll make it work great on android as well.

Richard Hawkridge

Crap App I also think its a waste of money. Trying to use it on my Samsung S4 the arrow never points directly at the sun and the whole app shakes like I've got alzhiemers or something worse. A refund would be good unless it can be improved dramatically

Ben Ong

Doesn't work on Android The location of the sun is always off . I was using an iPhone version prior to this and it worked fine. Just doesn't work for the Android version.

John Manney

A GREAT WAY TO WASTE SIX DOLLARS. ABSOLUTE WASTE OF YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME. Does not work on my HTC One. It does not show where the path of the sun will be at, it just shows the sun's location as whereever I happen to be pointing the camera at. This is what I get for not reading the reviews first.

Craig Pryor

Great app! I will use this app to aid me during my photoshoots.

Erik Scott

Poorly made Icons showed battery symbols. Seems like its not loading the right textures. Doesn't track well on my galaxy nexus, but that's probably not the app, just the phone. Also doesn't follow android design standards. I don't recommend it.

Fabio Tuchiya

I should have read the reviews before I bought it... As others said, it works great in iOS... Terrible on android.... I gave it a 5 star in iTunes...

Tony Baker

Great Really good when house hunting. This android version is really jumpy in 3D view, where as the iPhone version is smooth and steady.

Mehul Bhanti

Need feedback The app doesn't work well rather totally incorrect in 3d camera mode n this makes the whole purpose of buying it waste. I want to know if there something wrong with my app. Where is feedback?

Myles Gilbert

Believe the 1 star reviews... Also migrated from iPhone, sun position is always wrong on android. I'm on a Galaxy S4. Awful steal of 6 dollars.

A Google User

Not function in 3d On the ideos x5 from huawei the 3d map does not function. No clear paths or hours, just non-sense blue lines and moving yellow and red random points jumping. No sense or info change with camera pointing.

A Google User

Location is off Looking at the map view it is off by a good 1/4 mile of where I'm at. I am a photographer and an app like this would be helpful if the location was accurate. Would also be nice if I could tap a location on the map and see the data for that location.

A Google User

Recommended I'm house-hunting at the moment and finding this fab little app really useful when viewing properties. It's very straightforward to use and well worth the purchase price.

A Google User

I want to love it. I'm a filmmaker and this app is great when anticipating exactly where the sun will be so the crew can anticipate its location relative to the scene. My hesitation for loving this app, however, is that it is not calibrated correctly. I have reset my calibration in my phone (Galaxy S Vibrant), but it has not fixed the issue. It is only of about 8%, but that is enough for me to make this purchase almost worthless. I hope for a strong update in the near future.

A Google User

Jittery Jittery. Saw the iPhone version and it was much nicer.

A Google User

Compass not calibrated Great app, but I too have the problem with the compass being off by a few degrees. Sometimes I can force quit and it fixes it, but sometimes not. Kind of ruins the app if it doesn't show the position correctly.

A Google User

Not calibrated I pointed this in the sky, and the sun graphic was not aligned with the actual sun. Off by maybe 15 degrees

Nathan Di Tomaso

Amazing Application!!!! Extremely useful for gardening. After applying the information provided by this application I was able to figure out why my veggies weren't having successful turnouts. Also being in architecture/real estate this program made designing homes for sale much more practical in relation to the suns impact and coverage of the area. I will absolutely be recommending this application to my colleagues & friends!!!

Don Orkoskey

Direction not always perfect I've used with a compass and found the direction to be off at times, otherwise great app!

Alan Martinez

Hoping for an update. Had to upgrade to a Samsung Tab 2 7.0 w/ Jellybean (4.1) and my device isn't compatible. I'll reevaluate and review when it works on my device.


Requires lots of work to rival iPhone version. Requires lots of work to rival iPhone version.

Ivan Chertov

Not working on HTC Desire C500 Ive seen the app working great on iphones and other android phones, however on mine the sun path is totally different and inacurete as well as the sun pointer.

Russell Jalbert

Galaxy S 4 Very pleased with data provided and app performance

Андрей Скрипник

Time is hurring Cool app, but time is hurrying for 1 hour in Moscow in 3D mode, please fix it.

Greg Busby

Must have for photography Amazing app for using sunlight in photography and video.

Reuben figueroa

Use to work great, way off as of lately Sunseeker needs to get it together!!

Amber Perrett

Crashes on 3d view But all the other features work really well

Barry Winfield

Sun seeker Vs Sun Surveyor This program is good just needs to be a little more accurate on the compass to set your own positive and negative declination an a few HD graphic tweets would make this a brilliant app to me it's just good Sun surveyoris far superior and is brilliant idea recommend that app and this app to I own both. I need to know where the sun is for my hobbies. Please DEVS make put a little HD INTO IT I AM USING SAMSUNG S7 EDGE. THANK YOU in future updates I'll give it 5 stats !!!!!!!!!!

Peter Sheiman

Always incredibly off Never accurate. Trying to use it to decide what trees to cut down and it's way way off


Terribly inaccurate GPS is off by a few Miles and the sun is off by a lot.

Adrian Burns

Completely unreliable This app works on the basic premise that it establishes the position of north magnetic field and from this point, determines the sun's arc at a particular date/time. The fact that it fails in getting the basics right renders it completely useless. A colleague and I both used this app on a recent project on our respective devices and neither paid-for version could provide even near-accurate results. Literally a waste of money. If the developers are reading this submission, I'd like a refund, please.
