Must be a Hobby for them.. The App is disappointing.


Panavision. A pioneer in the motion picture and film industry. However, when it comes to making this app, you’d think they were fledgling company. I’m a location scout and I have used the app for awhile. But, their consistency in its evolution has little to be desired. I guess I was of the belief that, with a reputation as grande as Panavision you’d get a superb product - Panascout falls WAY short. As does their customer relations. Don’t buy this app. until this review is at the bottom of the reviews chart. You’ve been warned.

Money grab


Bought the app when it was $10. Now with update that purchase is no longer valid and I have to pay another $10 to get back the features I previously had.

People new to the all get all the features for $10, people that previously paid for it now end up paying $20. That is pretty crappy.

Don’t buy in-app purchases


The app doesn’t have a redeem purchases so when you upgrade your phone the app wants you to purchase the in-app items I already purchased. Emailed developer but they won’t respond. I used the app as a quick location, shot blocking and shot notes tool and works well for that. Scam BS...
