About Sun Scout

If your work or play requires sunlight, Sun Scout is built for you. Turn your iPhone in to a magic lens. Point it to the sky and understand where the sun will be and when it will be there.

* romano01, US App Store – "This app has come in handy more then once this week alone. While working on a feature film called "fairhaven" the gaffer and I (key Grip) needed to find out where and when the sun would be for a scene… well after i pulled out my Sun Scout App. everyone started downloading it!!! It is well worth it."

* WPSHM, US App Store – "This should win a gajillion awards for usability and simplicity. I love it!!!!"

Please Note – Sun Scout uses your device's compass. Like all compasses, Sun Scout is adversely influenced by metal in buildings or vehicles. Sun Scout is only as good as the iPhone's compass and is prone to a variable margin of accuracy even under fair conditions. Please do not base high-value production decisions solely on Sun Scout. Confirming them using sun charts and a technical mission during the time of day of a future shoot.

1.4.1
Feb 1, 2016
* If you used Sun Scout on an iPhone 6s, you will have found that it didn't work for the first few revisions of iOS9. The sun's track simply flew about in the sky instead of staying put. This was caused by an issue in iOS9 which has been rectified in later updates. I'm very sorry this caused problems for you.

* This update is a fix for the "Where is the sun now" arrow on newer devices.

Many thanks for your support. Please get in touch with your suggestions. Happy scouting!

Sun Scout is now universal: use it on any Apple device with a camera and G.P.S., including your iPad!

We've refined the interface so there is much more space to see where the sun is going, and polished numerous other details.

Thank you for your feedback and enthusiastic support and watch this spot for further improvements soon.

This update mainly fixes a serious crashing bug with iOS 4.3 (thanks to Daniel Cilia & Rick Evans for Beta testing). We're sorry for the problems this has caused.

Other improvements are…

The magnetic North correction has been fixed (many thanks to Anthony Moringello for testing this).

The screen update algorithms have been optimised to be smoother.

The tracking algorithms have been greatly refined for smoother and faster tracking on all devices, and in particular on devices sporting a gyro.

Specific handling of the iPhone 4's camera geometry has been added in.

Thank you for your support, and please keep your excellent feedback coming in. It's very helpful to understand what you are doing with Sun Scout and know about the features you would like to see added.

Happy Scouting!
