Customer Reviews

Great Film Developing Timer


Real simple to use and flexible. Everything one needs as far as developing timer goes.

I don't think the sounds work though but not a huge issue.

Great apo


Really useful for hybrid workflow. Much more useful than massive dev sites app.

It has some interface issues on my 5s. When making an entry, it becomes difficult to get to the '+' to add a new component.

It would be useful to be able to clone an entry.

Great app!

Done searching

Very customizable. Perfect if you don't want the bloat of some other apps.
