In the summer, there's nothing better than enjoying beer on a patio and Pints in the Sun is a web app to help you find the perfect patio conditions.

London digital agency Poke took it upon themselves to create this tool using Open Street Map data, SunCalc, FourSquare math and a few other applications. With Pints in the Sun, you can search for a pub, locate it on a map and then move a slider to coincide with a certain time of day. The map shows the location of the pub and how much shade or sun it will be exposed to at a certain point in the day. The Poke web application is still in the experimental phases, but it's still a handy tool for locating a perfectly sunny UK pub.
