Try the Sun Seeker app to get a handle on site orientation and how the sun will affect a home. The app shows sun paths in an overhead view, with sunrise and sunset times and solar angle details. Users can view the sun path overlayed onto live views from their smartphone or tablet’s built-in camera and compass. OzPDA |
