What's New in Version 1.2
Various bug fixes and enhancements
Works fine, but needs more functionality
I like this app for what it is now: a good way to get a model release on the day of the shoot when the model is present. Unfortunately we sometimes have to send a release to a model some time after the shoot and have them sign and send back to us, so it would be nice if we could edit the shoot date (to specify a past shoot instead of having the app decide that it was today) AND send/save the release without having signatures in place.
Right now I am signing a tiny "X" as the model's "signature" and then emailing the release to the model for them to sign, which is a decent workaround for that, but I have to open Photoshop to correct the shoot date which is a total pain.
Also, I would also love to have a "save to Dropbox" capability to back up the releases!
Failed so hard I had to laugh (and then I cried)
I really wanted to like this app. The concept is so simple and yet essential. Instead, I have an app that makes you and the model/client fill out all these form fields, then sends us a PDF by email that contains two pages of nothing except the worthless digitized squiggles called signatures and a photo of the model, but none of the text is present! When I go back to the office and discover this issue, I think, "Uh okay, fine, let's go back to the app and load up the saved form. Surely, it saved the form, right?" WRONG. Poof, it's gone. Start over. Oh, wait, the model I met on the street is gone. No saved contact info, just their now-worthless signature and mugshot on a blank PDF. Sigh, this app needs some major bug fixes.
I'd love to love it
But it just doesn't work. I can generate a release, but the PDF does not come through in the email, just an error about PDF not found. Bummer. This could be a great app. Also needs an option to import my information - name, phone, email, address - from my contact card so I don't have to enter it all. Would also be nice to have a 'next field' button for filling out the forms, instead of having to scroll down and select the next field to ender text. One base star, plus one for being a good idea.
