  • Best photo app ever made. EVER!

    By Streetpiratee
    By far the best photo planning app - ever! Best money I’ve spent in the Apple store. This app has allowed me to take my career to the next level - can’t thank you enough guys
  • Please don't turn into Adobe!

    By foto_alaska
    First and foremost I'm a software user and the main reason I use Apple products is because of stability, they just work and I don't have to worry about them. One of the tools that I use the most in this app is the DoF Calculator. There is a serious problem with this part of the app that literally freezes the app with no response. There's been over three updates since I noticed this problem and it still is a reoccurring problem. The thing that confused me more is that these newer features are being put into the application with this problem still existing! I've deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still does not fix the problems that keep on reoccurring. I really am about stability first in features second. I would really appreciate it if you guys could make this a priority and fix it!
  • Best photography tool

    By Knight Photography
    I can't recommend this app enough, just buy it now. I think every photographer should have this app, especially if you're into astrophotography. This app can do it all and it does it very well. There are some features that take a bit to get used to because of all the information it gives you. But once you get used to it you'll be glad all the info is there. I've had this app for over a year and use it very frequently. It's nice even if all you care about is sun/moon rise and set. You can easily see this info in the widget without unlocking you phone. I recently used PhotoPills for planning the total solar eclipse and it worked perfectly. Time of eclipse was spot on and I was able to perfectly align the sun where I wanted hours before with the augmented reality view. Sometimes the AR is shifted but you can easily correct the overlay to point the correct direction. This is an all in one app for all my photography needs.
  • Incorrect Data?

    By Jake.Sobelman
    I purchased this product to plan for a shoot of the solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017. Upon entering my data and using the "Planner" and "AR" features, unnoticed that it indicated that the eclipse would span the duration of the entire day. According to all of my other sources, including similar applications, this is not the case. This application still correctly calculated the correct time at maximum, but it seems to have grossly exceeded the figure of the maximum itself and the duration. Otherwise, this seems like a great (albeit maybe not blindly reliable) product that I can see being very useful in the future.
  • Best planning tool!

    By iga-2008
    Best planning tool for photographers!! Please add ability to organize/group related plans and points of interest into folders. Also, when adding photos to a point of interest, ability to add more than one photo at a time as well as ability to filter public points of interest vs my points of interest.
  • Best in Class

    By jc ridge
    As both a programmer and a photographer this app far exceeds anything I have used. Detailed information with precision calculations right at my fingertips. The app is robust to such a degree that I have not experienced a hiccup in the six months I've used it. Support is excellent and they even provide comprehensive you tube tutorials. This is quality across the board.
  • Not sure

    By uhaas
    Isn't easy to understand this app.... I literally have to be outside to understand this graphic.... feels like math when the old guy teaches I understand, in the school I never get it
  • WOW. Must have for Photographers

    By wwilson247
    This app is way ahead of the game when it comes to photographing sunsets, sun rises, or anything to do with the sky. There is nothing else like this out right now and this is beyond useful for me as a professional photographer. The AR mode is spot on and I'll be using this like crazy. Well worth $10. Awesome job, developers!
  • La mejor App de fotografía que tengo

    By enriquec
    Sin lugar a dudas la App mas completa de fotografía que existe... solo una queja: si esta desarrollada por Españoles porque no tienen videotutoriales y la App misma en version castellana????
  • Absolutely amazing

    By Eric_S_H
    This is hands down the most useful app for both beginner photographers and the pros. You can plan any trip for shooting the sunset, sunrise, moon, stars, Milky Way and more with accurate representations of where everything will be and has been on every day at every minute from January 1st in the year 0001 up until December 31st in the year 10000. It shows you how large an object can be at any distance to fit into your frame with any focal length on your specific camera. All of this and so much more on this outstanding app. I would even pay over $100 for this app.
