Shows which parts of the world are in daylight, which are in twilight, and which are in darkness. The approximate positions of the sun and moon (projected on to the Earth) are also shown.

Various locations around the world can be selected, and the date and time can be changed. For the currently selected location and the current date and time, information such as the number of daylight hours and sunrise/sunset times are shown in an information panel.

The map can also be animated to show the passage of light and shadow across the surface of the Earth over time. The speed can be selected using the "Time Step" control.

The program makes some approximations; do not rely on the results to be totally accurate, they are intended as a guide only.

Force close errors? The most common cause of the app crashing is the phone running out of memory, especially when zooming in. Some developments are planned to use memory more efficiently to help avoid this problem. In the meantime, if your phone has limited memory, try closing other apps, or is possible avoid zooming in too much!

Newest games:
Word Star - A multiplayer game of creating words against the clock.
Twins Memory Tournament - Puzzle game to test your memory and train your brain.

Stats Panel Button Great app. - Thanks I would like to have an Option to toggle the stats panel. It is bit big for always on and toggling it is rather awkward. Can you please add one? Andreas

This feature already exists! You can toggle it on/off in the options screen.

Graphics Would you be able to have the graphics just like the one on the ios? Their graphics are better. Thanks! P.S. also, can you also show the calendar dates for the solstice and the equinox. Again, thanks!

Screensaver Can daylight world map be used as a screen saver?
posted 2015-09-13 by Bill
It can be used as a home screen widget, but not really as a screen saver.

Daylight Program Please have an option to have the night areas to be not so dark. Also an option to show US state outlines would be most helpful as well. Thanks for having this fine application available. Please drop me an email if these requests seem doable. Regards, George, NJ3H Stephens City, Virginia USA

I guess the darkness factor is a matter of personal taste! Would be happy to show a US state outlines, but would need a appropriate source map image. If I come across an good one with a suitable license, I'll add it in as an option.

daylight world app When I put new location in, I can put in location name ok using the tablet keyboard. When I go to lat,longitude, the tablet keyboard disappears and a small numerical board appears. This puts in nos. and dots, but not the negative sign. This sign is on the same button as the neg.sign, but I have tried various means to get the neg. sign to no avail. How do I get it as everything goes East, not West.

On most phones it is possible to enter negative values using the software keypad, to represent "West" longitude. However, some phones do not make it easy to enter negative values. To cover this case, an additional +/- button has been added to the app.
