Hi Mourner,

Your app is absolutely fantastic!! I have been looking for something like this for absolutely ages!
I am a photographer and this helps heaps with pre-planning for location shooting! I wish I could have an app like this for the iphone, but for now I will do all the planning at home!

Thanks very much,
Mourner, 12.08.2010, 08:36
Thanks, Nerea! For now I can also recommend Photo Ephemeris, they have iPhone app: http://photoephemeris.com/

For iPhone, have a look at Sun Seeker (www.ozpda.com)

Also have a look at SunFollower app (iphone and ipad)
It has quite similar interface to suncalc.net

For windows phone and Windows 8 have a look at Where is the sun.

I just saw a G+ post that may help others: https://plus.google.com/107271408996531642672/posts/Xaxkuq63mR6

There is a software app, LightTrac (Android) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rivolu.lighttrac

I will be trying to make a SunCalc clone for Nokia platforms quite soon...

Hi, for Android you also should try aShadow Finder: http://es.appbrain.com/app/org.andamobile.ashadow

Try to build an Android App ... you have all the API to do that.

At least make it user friendly in browser or try to contact google to insert this plug-in in their google maps apps.

Great work so far. As Ephemeris is already available for the Iphone I would target both the Blackberry and Android market first.
luham, 28.02.2012, 12:43
Yes it's a great idea,i hope ther's an Android version
Eliseus, 03.06.2012, 13:13
Beautiful and practical app. You are a Master Programmer!!

Hey, great app. I'm waiting for iPad version.

At the very least, it would be great if there was browser detection and it generated a version optimized for iPhone/Android phone screens. While I would love an actual app, it works pretty good on the iPad browser as-is, but not on the iPhone.

Excellent, excellent tool!

At last I've found something very useful in tracking solar movement over time. Great job on the slider control, too. It would also be great to see this come out for Android.
malcu, 03.01.2013, 14:47
Really fantastic!! hope to see it for android.
bridgette, 22.03.2013, 20:15
Please make an app for iphone. I don't care if it is not FREE. I would glady pay a few bucks! This tool is just fantastic!! I like to take pictures of sunrise/sunset, and I love watching the sunirse and sunset for the sheer pleasure of it...it starts and ends the day on a good note!
regor, 10.05.2013, 23:46
I discovered there is a $1 suncalc app in the iphone appstore with a snapshot looking exactly like suncalc's diagram, but the author's name isn't you ; are you aware of this ?
Ian Cooper, 21.01.2014, 11:02
I use a 7 inch Nexus Android tablet. Web page works fine except date field disappears under the previous fields in portrait orientation.

Thank you for doing this, it's really useful to see whether a new house would get any sun in the garden. Angle of sun during day would be even better.
Michael Ner, 02.02.2014, 00:35
I'd just like to say that your app is simply amazing!!!! I too would like to have a mobile version, by you.

New version pleas

For cellphones:
I would convert the time text into images relative to client display.
This would prevent seeing 9:00 near sunset and the remainder of the times running off to the right.

When someone is looking for property to buy or even to sell, a quick look while at the site would be easier than going back home or lugging a PC with a hot spot. It's not always obvious to know the Sun's track when you are standing out there. I'm not a realtor, but I think those folks really would like it.

how about the ability of downloading a file of elevation and inclination for the suns position for one year. It could just be a text file of daily / hourly elevation and inclinations based on my lat/log position. from efittery@gmail.com

Excellent! I use this for fisheries compliance. Tuna longline fishing vessels in South Africa are only allowed to set during the night to avoid catching albatross and other vulnerable / protected seabirds. We look at nautical dusk and dawn for that. Would be great to have an android app for in harbour use for inspectors.
