"Focalware offers unrivaled accuracy and ease of use to photographers shooting outdoors. To say I use it a couple of times a day is an understatement!"

Moose Peterson, Wildlife Photographer

"A very slick little app, and a landscape photographer's new best friend."

Scott Kelby, Editor of Photoshop User Magazine

"As a nature photographer who spends much of my time photographing locations with no cell or wifi coverage, Focalware is essential to my ability to plot and plan for the sun and moon’s arrival and departure, no matter where I am."

4/5 stars

Definitely fun to play with

I had no idea how to use this when i first got it so i emailed customer service. And i got the person who designed it to explain it to me. I thought that was pretty cool. As to how it works. I find it is decently accurate. Not perfect 100% of the time but pretty much dead on most of the time. At least so far. Yesterday i went out to a few of my favorite locations and saved them in my favorites. This is very cool cause i will be able to predict when i can go to anyone of these places when the sun or moon is in the perfect position for a shot i may be visualizing. Granted, you do not have to physically go to these places to add to your favorites - you can simply use the map to hone in on a spot and save it that way too. But i like knowing that if i go to a spot to save it, it is in the exact area i want to shoot and i can visualize the shot better. Either way is fine. I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 because of the few instances i have seen it be off. Otherwise, I am more than happy to have this app in my arsenal of goodies for photography.
