Is there a good app for an iPad that shows you the sun path on any given day overlaid on the view through your iPad camera?  So you can stand in a proposed garden/greenhouse location and look through the iPad to see how the sun will travel throughout the day/year and tell which trees will block its path?  I've seen a screen shot of one in a post but my searching failed to turn it up.  Thanks!

No replies yet.  Sniff  sniff....   

I did more searching on here and found the thread where the SunSeeker app was mentioned.  It sounds good.  Anyone have another option or is this the best thing ever?

Thanks Laura, that's very good to hear.  I'll get it on my iPad one of these days.
