Augmented reality iPhone applications are on the rise. Everyday we hear about more applications that enable iPhone owners to look at the world in a whole new way. Sun Seeker is one of those apps. It provides with an augmented reality view of the solar path in the sky, its intervals, and the winter and summer solstice paths. It’s the ultimate tool for those who are interested to find out more about our sun, including gardeners, photographers, and even businesses.
Here is how the app works. It uses your iPhone GPS to find the current position of the sun and its current path in the sky. The 3D augmented reality camera will show the suns current position no matter how your sky looks. The camera also comes with a pointer to help you identify and follow the current solar path in the sky. I can think of a few scenarios that this information could come in useful. It comes handy for real estate professionals and architects.
What I like about this app is not only its looks but it’s flexibility. The interface is very convenient to get a handle on. So you can start tracking the sun in no time. You can also use the date picker feature in this app to find out more about how things will look on a specific date. The app provides you with all kinds of information about the sun, including sun rise time, sun set time, and other useful information.
All in all, if you are interesting in researching the sun or just need more info on it, Sun Seeker is a must try app.
