Excellent Photo App
I'm going to rate this app on it's own merit (regardless of the info being available for free). As a beginner in photography, Ken is the first that I could find that gives concise yet very useful information. This app is simplicity at it's best and accomplishes what it sets out to do: educate us newbies. Asthetically, the app is attractive and is laid out well.
As for the info being free on his website, I also don't mind the $4.99 price tag. This info is worth far more based on the books I've looked at and purchased. Also, the app is a navigational upgrade (although that's not to say his site is difficult to nav). I just prefer the app to the site.
Summary: Well designed app + great content + easy to understand info = worth $10-$15 at least (i.e., well worth the money).
I have read Ken Rockwell's site for years and loved his D40 guide when it first came out. The D40 was my first dSLR. The iPhone app version is very refined, intuitive, and pleasing to use. The app navigates great and it is super convenient to have in your pocket. however, the content is where the real reward is. With this guide, absolutely any novice can easily learn to use ALL the sophiticated features found on this amazing camera... within the first few days! I know, because I was one of them. Even though I have moved on to the D300, I still use my D40 often. The second I saw this guide was available for the iPhone, I bought it, despite having read the guide countless times. I just hope Ken puts out more of his info onto the App Store. You Rock Ken!
Geez, you guys are impossible! Yes, the info is available at the author's wonderful web site, which itself is well worth a $5 contrib. But this version is infinitely more convenient and organized and usable on my iPhone. Well worth $5 for that usability. And the great info - and great web site - are worth still more.
I'm pleased as punch to have this handy info in my pocket, ready to call up on a moments notice when I'm shooting. $5 is a steal! How can anyone possibly not want and love this?
Sorry to rant!
