“MovieSlate® is the the Rolls-Royce of slates” says HandHeldHollywood.com. A convenient, all-in-one digital slate, clapper board, shot log, and notepad is used for film, TV, documentaries, music videos, and interviews, this professional production tool is the easy way to log footage and take notes as you shoot— saving you valuable time later when capturing/editing footage, and creating reports. All at a mere fraction of a bulky digital clapperboard’s cost.
Tap a field to edit production info. Choose info from default/custom snippets, contacts, or saved history. Enter new info with the keyboard. Use the optimized keypad to quickly enter numeric info like: roll, scene, take, timecode. Or swipe up/down on fields to increment/decrement numbers.
Setting timecode is simple and fast using our specialized keypad. Sync timecode to the clock, or between multiple iOS Devices (iPad/iPhone/iPod touch) via Bluetooth-- or with a song from your iTunes music library (for use in “Music Video” mode).
TIMECODE SYNC PLUGIN (optional in-app purchase)
Co-developed with Denecke. Sync timecode with compatible cameras, sound recorders, LTC generators via the headphone jack. Sync timecode over WiFi with Timecode Buddy hardware. Sync timecode, slate data, and chat messages over WiFi between multiple MovieSlates.
MULTICAM PLUGIN (optional in-app purchase)
Simultaneously log data and shot notes for up to 26 cameras.
SOUND DEPARTMENT PLUGIN (optional in-app purchase)
Easily log all sound department data, and quickly generate comprehensive Sound Reports.

To begin a shot, photograph the slate’s production info, then tap the clapper sticks. The sticks open and clap closed, creating an audible/visible marker. All slate data is logged to history. Optional credits animations briefly display each production field, full screen.
SHOT MARKER/NOTES, VOICE/IMAGE NOTES
For each shot, you can: circle a take; rate sound/picture quality; write multiple shot notes; record voice notes; take picture notes. Example: when shooting interviews you can create notes to timecode-mark when a particular question was asked, or something remarkable was said. Enter notes using the microphone, camera, keyboard— or insert snippet phrases (such as “Interview”, “Question”, or “Tail Sticks”).
SHOT LOG HISTORY
Get fast, searchable access to shot info, without wading through hours of footage. Each shot, all production, GPS location, and timecode data is stored to a Shot Log History, where you can view, edit, or rate shots. History/Notes can be exported/emailed as: HTML, XML, Final Cut 7/X, Avid ALE, Adobe Prelude/Premiere, CSV, and TAB formats.
HAVE IT YOUR WAY
Customize MovieSlate’s behavior and appearance to suit your workflow and tastes. Choose behaviors, sounds, and themes (clapper stick designs, backgrounds, fonts, and colors)— even display your production logo on the slate and in reports.

Something went bad - NOW FIXED
Way to go guys! Your customer service is spot on. You answered my email very quickly, you had great troubleshooting ideas, offered some solutions with links to make my job easier, and now Movie Slate works great. (Also an new iOS update came out, that may have helped too.) WIN.
The issues I had (old post below) have been well taken care of. 5/5 is well earned and well deserved.
I have been using MovieSlate for quite a while with great success. I would have given 4/5 stars, subtracting one for price, and admitting that might not really be fare. Now, I have to give only one (1) star for v. 7.8 running on iPhone 5 with iOS 8.1.3. Ap freezes, locks in rotation orientation and will not release, does not allow me to input slate data, and the sound of the clap is hit or miss. This renders it absolutely useless. What is odd is that sometimes it works again, making me hang on to in hopes I can use it. Dangerous! I depend on this ap, and recently it is not performing. I clear all running aps, re launch, and even try re-booting, but all to no avail. If PureBlend Software can correct the issues, I will again give it 4/5 stars. When working, MovieSlate is a strong, solid, very useful application at a reasonable if premium price.
Crappy at times and more $$$ than it's worth.
Trying to use the cloud part of the app but the password has to be so complicated I can't get in. I don't think there's a better app so stuck with this until there is.
App Broken Currently
I've always had good with this app but on the latest ios running on a 6+ the app is straight up broken. Constant freezing issues, screen issues, information input issues, lag... Lots of lag. Save your money for now, wait for a fix!
