Helioseek is the sleekest, easiest and fastest way to find out where the sun will be for every date and every place on earth. It’s perfect for photography, filming, looking for a flat with a sunny balcony or your new favorite picknick spot!
The unique Map View shows sunrise/set times and directions and an estimate of lighting conditions for every time of day. You can move the map view and set the date and time in order to plan shots.
With the Augmented Reality View, you can quickly find the exact spot the sun will be on any time - e.g., find out when the sun exactly lights up a canyon the perfect way. If you've found an angle you like, you can simply save the shot to view it later.
Helioseek also allows you to calculate the times for the golden hour, sunrise, sunset and civil, nautical and astronomical twilight - everything you need as a photographer. These calculations are also available for every day and every place on earth. Additionaly, Helioseek has a graph displaying the sun's path, which is also available as a widget to view from your lock screen!
This update fixes an issue where for some system text sizes the widget would not display properly.
New in 2.2:
- Improvements to the date controls.
- Use your current location for the widget.
- Displays golden & blue hour, as well as the times for golden hour and nautical dawn (that's when the blue hour ends) in the widget.
- Improvements to the AR View and the motion tracking.
- Fixed a bug that could corrupt sun positions.
- General fixes and improvements
