What's New in Version 3.0.6
- iOS7 look and feel
- Minor language and bug fixes
This application is a decent answer for low level legal agreements for release forms, but the greed of the developer makes me give this app only two stars, and that is being generous, considering.
They charge a huge amount at $10, and instead of just updating and upgrading the app to allow the user to customize fields for these releases. Well, they greedily want you to fork over another $3, on top of the $10 that you already spent on the application. Why not just be ethical and have morals, and just include the customization in the original purchase price?
I am so sick of seeing daily examples on the App Store, of how in-app purchases foster nothing but corruption, greed and fetid ethics from pretty much all developers and companies who use these disgusting business tactics. Only in the digital world does this kind of operant conditioning and uncouth actions fly. It would be like buying a new car in the real world, and the dealer sells it to you without the steering wheel, but will be happy to sell it back to you for a price. Just disgusting.
Effective and Impressive
I'm using this app for my portrait work and for contract photography for a magazine. Recently I shot a Maker Fair for the magazine. The editor told me to get generic pictures (no faces) because she had forgotten release paperwork. When I explained that I could get signed releases, with a photo of each subject embedded, on my iPad - then email them to her, she hugged me. The result was a full two page spread of adorable children and families enjoying the fair. Beautiful! On top of that, everyone is impressed that we're doing the contract work in such a contemporary manner. (Little do they know that it is MUCH easier!) Seldom do we get turned down to sign. Most often we have an opportunity to pass a business card. Win-Win.
Buy this App!
During a test before use, the feedback/it help was absolutely great, responding back to me each time same day, so the issue was resolved before I used with a client.
App runs super fast, and looks great to clients! Just having this while street shooting alone saves you paper releases which long run smart money says you won't always have enough of when on location! Buy this app and enjoy! It's my number 1 reccomendation.
