Almost Perfect


I bought this for a shoot last night and it's great. It has almost everything I want and I definitely reccomend it over the other slate apps. But I need some upgrades soon! Please allow us (or tell me how to do it if it's possible cuz I cant figure it out) to email the logs to ourselves. The clapper sound needs to be a lot louder and the timecode needs to STOP when I reset it. Also have the notes auto-save when you hit done, instead of having to save then hit done. Give us an option to change the "Roll" box to something else; the age of digital is upon us an not all of us shoot on rolls of film.

Make these changes and I give it a 5th star.

Good work!

iSlate clapper sync issue


At first, the iSlate seems good enough. Yeah, you can't change "roll," and you're missing "shot" as an option, and the clapper sound is waaaay too soft, but hey, it only costs $2.99, so you forgive those things. Unfortunately, the real problem is that the clapper sound effect and the visual slap of the slate are not in sync! There's a three frame delay between the visual clap of the clapper and the beep of the app. So...the very thing that a slate is supposed to be used for - syncing audio and visual - this app doesn't do. I'm surprised I haven't read other reviews that say this. Luckily, our camera also records sound, or we would have been majorly F'ed. Only reason I'm giving two stars is bc iSlate is still better than no slate at all... But an upgrade to address this sync issue would be SWEET.

Neat, but not yet a revolution

This could be a revolutionary app, especially with the iPad. A couple features are needed: true jam-syncing either from external LTC or internal LTC source (accepted by audio / external mic), and use of the internal mic as a "slate mic." Transmit either by cable or Bluetooth to the sound recordist, who would split the Stereo signal to two tracks: one channel for verbal slate reading and manual slate clap sound, and the second channel for continuous / stamping LTC. This could also work for continuously syncing cameras with external sync capability. Throw this on a big iPad display and suddenly SMPTE sync slate becomes affordable for prosumers and students who are otherwise frightened by timecode, and then they have no excuses for not taking script supervisor notes. Everybody wins!
