What's New in Version 3.1.1
Bug fixes for Multipage In-App Purchase
It's Complex but Useful
Fairly complete but takes time to learn fluently. Custom templates are complex to create and understand how to select for use, but again, after time playing with it, you'll be trained. Limited 'Placeholders' are restricting even with 'custom' field capability in the Advanced Add-on Pack (again, that is complex to use/learn).
Overall, if you spend a lot of time (hours) learning the workflow by building what you need, setting your settings, and creating your custom templates and custom fields, you'll find the software beneficial. Weighing it against Photographer's Contract Maker and/or Contract Maker Pro, I think you'll find Eary Release more stable and with current developer attention. Hopefully a major interface/workflow release will come...you really need to keep with the app to be able to REMEMBER how to use it!
(PCM/CMP developer seems to have abandoned regular updating and debugging which is killing those apps.)
I am very impressed by all this App provides. To be perfect, I wish the forms were just a little more customizable, for instance I don’t require a mailing address for the release and would rather turn that off. I also wish the custom form fields had the availability of a check box or radio button. I found the application works great for the photographer, but I had wished this was something I could more easily hand to my talents and have them fill in their own information on the device. For example, the custom fields do not appear in the wizard, that’s a limitation in usability. I wish I didn’t have to input the same shoot info for each model, seems like this could be organized as a shoot category folder, or even a drop down list of recent shoots. I’d like to be able to take a shot of say three students, then have them fill in their details using a simplified intuitive form.
Good but Not User Friendly
All in all I like Easy Release, but the thing that I dislike, is the amount of screens the user has to navigate before arriving at the signature page. Furthermore, if the user makes a mistake you can't go back and edit it, it makes the whole release irrelevant and you have to start again. A paper release is more user friendly. Make the app as easy as a paper release and we've got something. Furthermore it can crash your whole phone, this has happened more than once. I think this is a result of there being too many steps in the signing process.
Thanks for starting the technology though, I just hope it gets easier to use on a shoot with lots of models and kids. Models find it tiresome, so I don't enjoy it because they grumble to me about it.
