Not a very intuitive UI. Nothing is labeled very clearly. I find other apps can do the individual "pills" better. There is a reason there is not a trial and paid version, only the paid version.
Maxwell 5
This is totally worth it. I've gotten a couple photos that I would not have been able to get otherwise. That's immediately worth it for me.
Mark 5
Best photo / astronomy planner on Google play, you may have to pay a fair price but it is well worth it for the sheer options that you can do with it and the planning you can do, beats all the other ripoffs on play ▶ plus you get it all straight out the tin as they say, using it for astronomy in one word is utter Brilliant. It's also got a very good AR Mode as well so you can frame that perfect Milky Way shot. Very much so recommended and also updated regularly, runs flawlessly on my Sony Xperia Z2 Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 phone with no slow down. £9.99 is WELL worth it in my book. If you've made it this far then what are you waiting for. GO GET GUYS you will never need another planner ever again.
Aldelo 5
Best photography tool. For those who love taking photo of the objects in sky night and day. You should know some photography vocab a bit to make the most out of it.
John 5
This is probably the best paid app I've ever gotten... This is going to take my creativity above and beyond. No more time wasting just time to focus on my shots
Stephen 5
Finding this app to be an extremely valuable tool for my landscape and night photography shots.

The only app a serious photographer needs! This is an indispensable tool in my kit
Daniel 5
This is an incredible piece of software! Only have one issue- I can't use the AR because my phone doesn't have a built-in compass but another similar piece of software does with a notice of "will not be accurate". Could that be added? Also, maybe an aurora forecast feature? Thank you so much!

Amazing app. However, as of late, I've noticed some unusual battery drain on my xperia xz. Having looked at battery usage, it's saying photopills is taking up 19% of my battery use yet I've not even used the app a few days. I've checked a few times and turned phone off and on a few times and no change. Apart from that 5/5 as it's such a helpful app for photography
Maksim 5
Thanks for the the stunning tool! If I may, I would like to ask for a flash guide number calculator. I do release that strobes and speedlights are not frequently used by landscape photographers, but such tools would be indispensable for portraiture, because TTL is not widely used for off-camera flashes. Most of the time it is all done manually.
Gi 5
This is an amazing app! Excellent support from the team. I had an issue with the sensors - hardware related - and they contacted me on Instagram to help solving the problem. The integration with the calendar is awesome! I now have it full of plans :-D
