Augmented reality apps have gotten a lot better over the past couple of years. We are going to see even more sophisticated ones in the future. You don’t always need a fancy app to track the position of the sun but these augmented reality sun trackers make the job so easy:
Sun Surveyor: a beautiful universal app that predicts sun and moon positions with a 3D compass. It is useful for video and movie location scouting, solar panel positioning, and gardening. The time machine slider feature is a plus.
Sun Seeker: a 3D augmented reality viewer that shows you the solar path, its hour intervals, its winter and summer solstice paths, rise and set times, and more.
SunHud: lets you track the sun more easily on your phone. It shows you when the sun disappear or rises, where you can sunbathe, and more.
Spyglass: a sophisticated iPad app for outdoor navigation. It has plenty of tools to help you find your way. It can track multiple locations, bearings, and the sun.
