PhotoPills App User Reviews & Comments

PhotoPills is....This is a fantastic app. Many calculations to perform and much information to look at.. this app definitely helps with the science and technology calculations if you are critical about your photography. I would recommend this app to anyone but a novice photographer but I would encourage it's use later. I look forward to anything new to add to this great app. Thanks for it's creation!!.Version: 2.12.2

Absolutely StellarBest app for photographing the sun, moon, meteor, eclipse, golden hour, blue hour and night sky photography. It requires a little training to get started but with a little bit of training on the planner, in particular, you can plan fantastic photo shoots. There are plenty of training resources available online and within the app..Version: 2.12.3

WOWI watched a training video on PhotoPills done by Erik Kuna at Kelby One and thought this would be useful for Milky Way and moon shots. When I downloaded the app I was blown away. It is so much more. And it comes with a great User Guide and tutorials and videos and the most enthusiastic developers. I am just starting to learn my way around the app and have not shot any photos yet, but I expect they will be great. Well worth the money..Version: 2.11.3

Mind blowingly PowerfulThis app has so many features to aid photographers that it is difficult to remember them all. If you even casually shoot landscapes on a mirrorless or dslr camera this app pays for itself multiple times over. I am primarily a portrait photographer and use the app when planning shoots. Get it. You won’t regret it..Version: 2.12.3

Just Fantastic and cleaver!For my photography only tool I need is this great Application, you should be able to do anything, plan for scenes that cannot be done without this app, really cleaver and well designed, their videos with how to’s are also the best. Best app!.Version: 2.12.3

Great Tools Lead to Great ResultsI was alerted to this app by a friend as we explore ways to improve our photography. This app with all its various tools came as a fantastic surprise. Now it is indespensable to me. Thank you for this, for the tutorials, for packing so much into it. Thank you..Version: 2.12

Incredible Information for a beginnerI am a beginner astrophotographer and I find this app primary to my ability to plan for shoots! Like most photographers the weather dictates if and when I can shoot so being able to plan is crucial to getting the projects I am striving to finish! I found PhotoPills because I was searching for an app or site that showed me the exact heading (or azimuth) the sun would set at and I could find no real information. I seen a post by a fellow Astrophotographer and ever since then I have been off to the races! Seriously speaking...the $$ you spend on this app is well worth it considering all of the apps this app makes obsolete. The sheer amount of time is worth the few bucks they charge! I love it and I won’t be without it again!!!.Version: 2.10.3

Feedback button is brokenAwesome app. However, the FEEDBACK button in the app is broken. Would love to see the settings for advanced DoF be allowed in hyperfocal distance be allowed. I print big and the standard assumptions fall far short of what is needed for a good print..Version: 2.11.8

Great features, but impossibleI will put in my coordinates to plan a shot. Send them to the planner only for it to override to my current location. I am unable to just start from the planner and set my location other than dragging the pin. Not very ideal when I know the gps coordinates I want to enter. The AR features are cool, but be sure to bring a notebook and pen to write down the information on the shot you want to take because the app is little more than just a tool to provide insight on when you might want to take a shot..Version: 2.11.8

I LOVE this API'm a landscape photographer and I've been using this app for a long time. You can see my work on instagram (joshua_p_crites) or 500px. This AP has saved me many hours of wasted trips. At first it was a little intimidating, but after watching a tutorial and using it a little bit, I love it. If you're a photographer who is interested in sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, Milky Way, or Astro photography this is the app for you. The only thing that I would love to see incorporated into this would be a tide chart and swell info, otherwise it's awesome..Version: 2.5.3

Incredible appThis is the best app I have ever used. I have had a longtime interest in photography but haven’t had the time to pursue it. I have recently gotten serious about photography in general and astrophotography in particular. The internet has everything you need but also has everything you don’t need. Most sources are good at telling you what you need to do but does not explain how to do it. Others tell you how to do it but in terms of an expert. This app pulls it all together..... the basics, the planning and the tools to pull it off. I am amazed..Version: 2.12.3

MUST HAVEIf you are a freelance photographer/videographer this app is a must. At $10 people will complain about having to pay but seriously I bet within one year I’ll be paying less than .01¢ per use. I just was referred to this app by another professional and I instantly downloaded. We agreed that this tool would be worth paying for the type of info it provides every time you’re on a shoot. The amount of camera types it has and can calculate settings, distance, and even an AR preview of your subjects proper location at the set f/stop, lens mm, and camera mm along with a 35mm equivalent. It even takes crop factor into the equation. Don’t write reviews ever but this app and developer deserve it. Obviously a professional photographer themselves..Version: 2.10.3

PhotoPills is a Great AppThis app is the best photography planning app on the market. It gives me all the information I need to plan and take shots of the Milky Way, super moons, and meteor showers. I also use it to determine shooting distance and my field of view. The night augmented reality is excellent. Linda.Version: 2.12.2

Essential for MW photographyI’m a wedding photographer and I do a lot of night/Milky Way shoots with couples. PhotoPills is absolutely essential for what I do. I spend a little time during the day scouting locations and compositions before the shoot and I screenshot the MW in the frame during the day and it’s so easy to replicate the frame at night. This is a must-have app for night photographers, but especially useful for me as I have a short window with 🥶 clients and I don’t have time to experiment with compositions..Version: 2.11.6

Must have for any serious photographerAt the beginning the learning curve seems pretty steep but once you study how to use the app, it becomes second nature. It is amazing the amount of useful data that you can get from this app + the PhotoPillers are the coolest guys in the world!.Version: 2.11.5

Too expensiveFor this price, I expected much more functionality from this app. I have PhotoBuddy and LongExp and they cover most of the functionality of this app and much, much more. Buying both is also cheaper. But you can’t have all things in one costume made app, right? It could at lease be cheaper, but the developers seem active and I really expect to see new features and improvements..Version: 2.5.2

AhmazingThis app is next level, I’ve only just started using it and wow. I start with a specific task and get off on a tangent wondering through all the cool tables and dynamic diagrams and next thing I know, 30 minutes has pasted. Keep up the great work..Version: 2.11.8

Incredibly Useful - Extraordinary DesignThis app exposes the relationship of our heavens for photography, exploration and teaching uses. I get it now. Nailing amazing compositions on a regular basis. It’s really fun to use the AR for scouting feature. A “pre viz” that holds up to actual shoot conditions. Can’t wait for the next eclipse!.Version: 2.10.2

Can’t share between my devicesGood app but I sure wish I could share plans between my devices. Rather frustrating that I can’t. I prefer to create plans on my iPad since it’s much easier to see and manipulate; however, those plans don’t show on my iPhone which is much easier to carry around in the field..Version: 2.11.3

One of my fav appsI don’t usually write app reviews, but since I love PhotoPills so much I am going to do it this time!! I love taking astrophotography and photos during golden and blue hours. This is my essential toolkit for taking a good photo! Highly recommend it to people who loves nightscape photography, you will also love it if you are into landscape or portraits..Version: 2.12.3

7 years and still learningI have owned and used this app for nearly 7 years and still discovering more amazing features. An absolute must own for any landscape photographer who is serious about planning and capturing the best shots possible. Steep learning curve but no great results come without effort. Kudos to the development team for their app and their awesome trading materials..Version: 2.12.3

So far exceeds my expectationReally awesome app to figure out all the little technical things that I am always googling at the last minute because I forget. Really cool, was hesitant to buy, but glad I did. Only using it for a few minutes and already feel a benefit of having this app. Will update as I use it more.Version: 2.10.2

Best app for Milky Way photographyI’ve been using this for about 3 years , I’ve just haven’t had the time to write a review , but it’s has help me while going out to do some Milky Way photography I highly recommend the app and shoot for the stars ..Version: 2.11.6

Don’t Leave Home Without It!For an outdoor Photograhper being armed with knowledge is as important as remembering to pack your camera. Knowing EXACTLY when and when a full moon will rise, the sun will set, or the galactic core of the Milky Way will be visible will allow you to plan and capture incredible images. There are so many great tools and features built into PhotoPills that it has become absolutely essential for everything I shoot. Five stars are just not enough for this incredible App. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Version: 2.10.2

So confusingThis app is so confusing to use. Yes, I know there are helpful videos that the devs release regularly. But sometimes I'll forget how to do something even after I've watched a video. And having the users watch a video to be able to understand the app is a UX failure. This app is powerful and really awesome with what it can accomplish. I just really wish they made it easier to navigate and use. For example, when in the 'planner' area of the app, there are all these icons with the pin that I have no idea what they mean. I have to tap around and try to blindly figure out what each one does. Could a label be added underneath? I know the font would be small. Perhaps there's a better solution. But please make this app more usable for people that want to just pick it up and use it. Thanks..Version: 2.11.6

Great app...worth the price and then someReally great app! Lots of useful info right at your fingertips (literally)! Even better are the series of informative videos and downloadable instruction series on everything you need to know to improve your photography. Well worth the price..Version: 2.10.3

A must have for any outdoor photographerI’m kind of shocked there are more positive reviews about this app. It’s my go to when planning trips any place and I want to make sure I can get good pictures. Helps of planning location angles and even days of the year to go it’s really amazing..Version: 2.12.2

Great appI have just downloaded the app a few hours ago and have been exploring its features. No question it is a very powerful app. It Wii’s be even better if is possible to import gps co-ordinates and its location label directly from an external app e.g. Google map. Bernard.Version: 2.11.6

Excellent AppI recommend this app to the photographer that’s just starting out to the seasoned professional. Guessing for the best time frame to take shots is a thing of the past with this app. Get to know this app well and it will become your best friend..Version: 2.10.2

Incredibly useful, but sometimes confusingIf you’re a photographer, this is one of the most essential apps you can have on your phone, bar none. My only real complaints are that the user interface can be confusing at times. For example, I can never seem to remember how to add a location in the planner “pill”, which often has me going to The Photographers Ephemeris to find what I need. Besides UI tweaks (can we please have the ability to customize the pills order? 🙏), I would love to see an Apple Watch app! I envision customizable watch complications and small functions like long exposure timers and DOF & exposure calculators. It’d be great to see the sun & moon timelines in the large complication slot! I’m crossing my fingers that this is on the feature list… 🤞.Version: 2.9.1

OMG! Take my money!!!This is easily, without question, the single most useful app I have on my phone. Such an incredible wealth of tools are available at my fingertips. Just watch the videos, take some notes, and play around and soon the app will become indispensable! Thanks, PhotoPills!.Version: 2.11.6

It IS the best app I have for photography.I think having a tool like this adds the ease and comfort to making sure you’re at the right place at the right time. It does matter what type of photography you do, it’s hand in all aspects..Version: 2.8

Outstanding for photographyThe DoF Augmented Reality is worth the price alone. There are so many great tools in PhotoPills that I will use it for all my photography planning, not just astrophotography. But I can tell you that I never would have gotten my shot of the Jupiter and Saturn Conjunction of 2020 without this app..Version: 2.12.2

Great for planning and inspirationThis App has so much crammed into it and the developers are so generous about sharing fascinating shots they and users have made it has become an indispensable planning tool. It keeps getting better and if you are on their email list the tutorials are great. Another reason it’s a great time to be a photographer..Version: 2.11.3

Widget drains batteryLove the app hands down. Just one thing I want to mention with iOS 14 is this app in the widget sucked my battery down from 100% to 25% in 4 hours and heated up my phone. Also the phone would barely charge with the widget active at 20% in 1.5 hours. Turned the widget off and the phone is charging way faster, not hot and the battery lasts like it normally does. Hope the devs can fix this cause I’d love to have the widget..Version: 2.12.1

Love this appI am an avid Astro photographer and this app is an important part of my planning process. It allows me to plan my images, months in advance, anywhere in the world. Along with that planning tool comes support. Webinars, emails and tutorials have all helped me become a better photographer. It’s the best money I’ve spent for one of my photographic tools..Version: 2.11.6

Not what it seemsThis app appears to be a great way to take incredible photos with your iPhone. That’s what it says in the description. Or so you’d think. This is just a tool to help you take photos with another camera. To the developer- I’ve read your passive aggressive and borderline insulting replies to other similar reviews and I want to tell you that I DID read the description. The description of this app is deceptive, and based on your obnoxious replies to users, I’m guessing that this is by design. This really does read as an app that is able to take photos as well as give ideas for other cameras. Nowhere, as the [extremely long and disjointed] description does it say anything about this not being a photo taking app. Which is what you told other reviewers is plainly written in the description. So save me the annoying and patronizing replies with stupid emojis asking me to remove this because I didn’t read the review. This is staying. And yes, I’ll ask Apple for a refund..Version: 2.12.3

Excellent AppInitial review below. But incredibly impressed that the developer fixed the issue and contacted me. They have a customer for life with that kind of service. Great app! Problem fixed! “Has useful tools. Have used to plan a couple of Milky Way shoots. But dof table locks the app when clicking on it. App is a bit glitchy.”.Version: 2.5.2

Lots of useful stuff, not very intuitive to useThe planner function is quite confusing, the developer should make adjustments so it is easier to use. It took me a while to figure out how to change place (locates under “load”, which doesn’t make sense because you find a place, not load a place) and date (need to tap the tiny clock symbol). I still don’t understand what all the symbols under the plus sign mean, there is no explanation..Version: 2.8.1

Beyond a good valueI bought this app years ago. Every time I open it I’m blown away with how much information is provided and that it’s been continually updated this whole time with a purchase so long ago..Version: 2.12.2

Sights unseenI have seen places with this app, that are just amazing, tonight as I got out the car I noticed some bright stars that caught my eye, I decided to look at PhotoPills and it’s there. So beautiful and if not for your app, I would not have learned what it is, and it’s peaking on the 14th I will be ready to capture it..Version: 2.11.8

Wonderful AppThis is truly a wonderful app. However it’s easy to become overwhelmed by all the functionality that it has. So I encourage everyone to review the instructions on how to use the app. This document is well written and is an excellent resource..Version: 2.12.1

The Only best app to plan your shotsI am still learning this app but once you learn the amount of possibilities it opens up is just tremendous. Such a powerful tool to be a pro photographer and get shots that you can probably never get if you didn’t have the app. Invest time in getting to know it and you will make the best of it. Thank you to the team who developed it. Such an intuitive and useful app..Version: 2.11.2

Complex featuresMany features that I do not need because I do not have a digital SLR. The Sun AR was easy to use but many other features were too hard to use, for example setting current location and time zone in Planner. I should not need to view a tutorial to understand how to use every feature..Version: 2.10.1

The best astrophotography app ever!I never knew how valuable this app was until I tried capturing the Perseids Meteor shower last August. I could follow the moon, sunset, Milky Way and Meteors all within a few hours of each other while preparing for my photoshoot up in the high peaks that evening August 12th. The augmented reality feature was super easy to use and I was able to track the meteors around the clock. I had a load of fun especially discovering that the Milky Way would be right above us and I could plan on taking an image of it with all the meteors I planned to capture. PhotoPills Academy has helped me find answers about photography that I could not find anywhere else. The interviews with other astrophotographers are also extremely helpful and mind opening. The PhotoPills planner is a ‘must have’ if you want to capture a gorgeous sunset, moon shot and/or the milky way in any location by planning ahead and knowing exactly when the sunset, moon or Milky Way will be positioning in the sky or the horizon. Thank you PhotoPills!!!.Version: 2.12.1

Initial impressions from new userJust downloaded the app after seeing it mentioned on the website of an Australian photographer. Haven’t used it yet, but have done the “tour” and gone through Settings. Have to say I’m impressed with the interface. Am also impressed with what I’ve seen of developer follow up to comments posted in the Review section of the PhotoPills app. After I use the app a while, I’ll see if it’s possible to come back and update this review. So far, however, I’m impressed with what I’ve seen..Version: 2.8.1

Very useful in planning future but easy to trip upI found this app immensely useful for star observation planning for travel. I did trip myself up when planning for much different time zone I forgot to verify the time zone of observation was not correct. It would be helpful if moon page displayed time zone of calculation (i.e. gmt+some number).Version: 2.12.4

Please don't turn into Adobe!First and foremost I'm a software user and the main reason I use Apple products is because of stability, they just work and I don't have to worry about them. One of the tools that I use the most in this app is the DoF Calculator. There is a serious problem with this part of the app that literally freezes the app with no response. There's been over three updates since I noticed this problem and it still is a reoccurring problem. The thing that confused me more is that these newer features are being put into the application with this problem still existing! I've deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still does not fix the problems that keep on reoccurring. I really am about stability first in features second. I would really appreciate it if you guys could make this a priority and fix it!.Version: 2.5

Essential for astrophotographyThis app is by far the best tools to plan and photograph stunning views of the sky in particular relation to a monument, natural wonder or landscape. It’s intuitive and easy to use. The support and tutorials are fantastic (Both in English and Spanish). There is so much this app can do and it is constantly updated with new very useful features. Can’t recommend it enough..Version: 2.10.1

By far the most complete and intuitive photography app!This is The second photography app I purchased. The video are so detailed and helpful. I spent the morning learning about all the features. I am planning my first milky way photo session. So excited! And I can’t wait to post my shots!!.Version: 2.11.3

With every update this app gets better and betterAs a hobby photographer I am finding this app so useful, I have made future plans for milky way photoshoot at a desired location and a full moon photoshoot over the CBD. I have fallen in love with this app. So many updates with so many new features, keep up the good work..Version: 2.1.1

Amazing appIt's amazing just how often I refer to this app when planning a photo. I've had it for a while now and as my photography has improved, so has my use of this app. Very well done guys.Version: 2.0

Best planning app hands downHands down the best app for planning photography shoots in advance, with plenty of options. Predicting sun, moon, stars, and takes into account local elevation which is critical. There’s a bit of a learning curve like any advanced app and it’s worth putting the time aside to explore all the options. Let your fingers do the walking!.Version: 1.2

An app for cleverer people than me.Probably an awesome app, but not if you’re pretty basic on maths. Way too complicated for this simple mind. Guides served to confuse me further. Videos seemed to rush through the important details while lingering endlessly on irrelevant details. Interface way too fiddly for fat fingered people to use on a standard smart phone. Will have to stick to trial and error with a bit of pot luck thrown in to make my ideas happen. Kudos to those who can work it all out. If you’re not real good at the maths of the solar system and are looking for an app to make planning easy, this may not turn out to be the panacea you are looking for..Version: 2.11.6

Could I have a refund please?The Augmented Reality is useless. The compass is completely erratic, swapping North for South for West then South-West, wandering all over the place. I have other compass related apps that work perfectly, but not this one. There are other less expensive apps that do the other functions much better..Version: 1.1.4

Fantastic app for any photo nut!!Using the app with the online tutorials will result in photography only governed by your own creativity!! Clean modern screens, easy to use..Version: 2.11.2

Dreadful interfaceMaybe it's just me but the structure and ui is almost nonsensical. The online documentat is pretty useless too!.Version: 2.3

Great photog appThis is a sweet app. An all-in-one program for all levels of photography that has more features than many comparable single use apps..Version: 1.0.3

WomaxeThanks guys!.Version: 2.10.3

FantasticI’m pretty new to photography and this app is so helpful, in so many ways. The tools that it has to just makes it feel like cheating as well. Thanks guys love it.Version: 2.12.3

FantasticSo many things to find here, and they are all well presented and helpful. Couldn’t be happier.Version: 2.11.6

Rating AppAbsolutely brilliant! Always amazed at what it can actually accomplish in the way of planning....Version: 2.12.3

A must have for a photographerThis app is brilliant, simple as that! It’s crammed full of features and is amazing value for money. The AR is fantastic and really helps with the visualisation and planning process. This is my go to photography app and an essential part of my kit..Version: 2.11.6

Just the app you must have!Great app, I generally never leave a review, but you guys deserve it. Comprehensive, takes a little bit to find out and understand every single thing you could do with this app, but man, it is the only app you will need! Great job! 👏🏻.Version: 2.11.8

AwesomeAwesome for someone who loves photography. Cheers guys great job 👍😊😎.Version: 2.11.1

Excellent softwareThis software is second to none for photography, from a mature to the professional alike. These guys are constantly making a fantastic software better and they have not let the software down!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!.Version: 2.4

Amazing!So many things to love. Especially appreciate being able to customise reference tables to my camera model..Version: 1.1

Just Simply BrilliantThis is the kit if you are a photographer of any level. Just get it, nothing else like it on the planet. It will bring another dimension to your planning and save you so much trial and error on the planning of epic shots. Thank you to the amazing people who designed it. Just phenomenal!!!!.Version: 2.3.3

One of my must have Photography appsThis app is amazing. Can plan shoots from the comfort of my couch. Milky Way season 2017 all planed already. One thing that is missing.... a "Milky Way" icon/category for when saving POI's - oh, and one for Lookouts would be nice also..Version: 2.3.3

A must for any Astrophotographers.My astrophotography journey would not exist without this app. Thank you so very much..Version: 2.12.2

Best thing since sliced bread!By far my most recommended tool in photography behind a solid tripod (though pretty much as crucial). Absolutely the ducks nuts! The leap I was able to achieve since getting this app in incredible. Plan to achieve what you plan to achieve, this app helps you do that and so much more. It helps me be in the right place at the right time with the right gear to achieve the shots I dream of capturing. Some apps I’ve had take ages for your knowledge to catch up to the app so you can get the most out of it and others you just outgrow too quickly, PhotoPills grows along with you( or you with it). Can’t thank the developers enough..Version: 2.11.6

AwesomeJust such a fantastic all in one app for planning photography. Thanks for releasing this guys and keep up the great work.Version: 2.8

PerfectIf you can conceive of a photo, this app will show you how to make it happen. Indispensable for any photographer, pro or otherwise..Version: 2.1.2

Visual calibration is perfect!I was I love with this app as it was, but the compass on my iPhone was always off by a little bit. This annoyed me to no end as I could never fully trust it. I gave the team some feedback and it looks like the message was passed on, this feature is the cherry on the cake for me. And now I don't need to rely on having reception on my phone or guessing where the sun will set. Love it!!!!.Version: 2.1.2

Too complexApp is too complex and annoying music with tutorials will drive you insane.Version: 2.12

Good focal charts and calcs. The rest isn’t so great.So I can get calculators for star trails, Milky Way photography, hyper focal distance, dof/v tables all over the net. Having them in an app is cool but...... What I spent $15 aud for was the planner functionality. Which is great until you lock your phone. Unlock it and everything you’ve entered disappears and the app shows you’re in Majorca right now. I’m very disappointed after hearing so many good things about the app..Version: 2.9.1

OkNot intuitive- otherwise ok..Version: 2.12.2

Reticulum SJM1950As a newcomer to astrophotography, this app has helped me greatly in understanding the various aspects needed to obtain successful photographs.

Amazing DoF ARI bought this as a DoF calculator and am amazed - the AR function makes it so easy to visualise what the DoF numbers translate into real world use. Planning tools for daylight hours are a very nice touch as well. Looking forward to exploring the other more advanced functions but happy with the purchase price alone for the DoF functionality..Version: 2.10.1

Worth every cent.Have been using the PhotoPills app for a few years now, still learning new things. A great tool for planning out where and when to be for those special photos you just can’t get otherwise. Always seem to be improvements and new functionality being added. You will not be disappointed..Version: 2.11.3

Best value app everQuite simply, in my opinion, this app is the best value app I've ever used, irrespective of the category. No doubt someone will find a way to find fault, but in my experience this app is comprehensive, stable, completely relevant & entirely focused on customer needs & satisfaction - not on making more $$$ for the developer. The tutorials alone have taught me more about photography than everything I've read in the past 12 months. The developer even responded, literally within hours, over the Christmas holiday period, to an email I sent asking about how to use one aspect of the app. How refreshing..Version: 2.9.1

Essential App for all PhotographersHave been using this app for 3 years now and absolutely find is amazing. The AR for Astro is great and the planning section of the app is so useful. Highly recommended for any photographer..Version: 2.11.6
