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.

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

I went through the complex MS process of setting up an ap store account and downloading it. Now I can't find the program on my computer. It did not make a desktop icon and it is not in my listing of programs. If I try to uninstall it, it is not listed. If I try to download a trial again, I am not allowed to do so because MS thinks I already have it. So I have wasted several hours and have nothing to show for it and no way of trying the program.

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!
