  1. Several days ago, I asked Satsuki about how they knew the Sun will appear at a particular spot in one of the scenes in Satsuki’s reel. I was aiming to find out if Satsuki was using any of the Sun-tracking apps. There are a few which seem to be really popular, especially with photographers. One of them is PhotoPills, currently available only for iOS, but there is an Android version in the works (if I remember correctly, by the end of the year it will hit Play Store). The app is $9.99 in the App Store: http://www.photopills.com/ It looks gorgeous. Its competitor is the Sun Surveyor app, available both for Android and iOS. It’s $7.99 in the Play Store: http://www.sunsurveyor.com/ Looks great, too. Another similar one, available on both platforms is The Photographer’s Ephemeris, which also has a free Web app: http://photoephemeris.com/ Satsuki mentioned Sun Seeker. http://www.ozpda.com/ Then there's the Set Lighting Technician, $5.99, which provides specifications for most frequently used lights on set. Available for both platforms, though one commentator in the Play Store says that the iPhone version has more information. So I was wondering are there any other apps, of any other type, which you use and which are useful in your job?
