What's New in Version 2.5.2
Fixes a crash in the DoF Table. Sorry for the inconveniences. We’ll keep improving :)
It’s the little things
While the concept and general execution of the all are top notch, in addition to the amount of features – the little things seem to go by the wayside.
• The yellow launch animation really is of terrible contrast to the rest of the app. The app itself is dark themed, which is great for photographers. When the app is launched in a dark environment, say shooting the Milky Way, your eyes get blinded. The desire for branding shouldn’t ruin the experience for those that already bought the app!
• The app has many sections. But when you jump between sections, the app consistently does not remember where you were in that section. This greatly amplifies the amount of tapping needed to use the app as a whole. Some sections are quite deep, which can make this a UX killer after a while.
It’s the little things which really make an app a true gem – or not.
Initial review below. But incredibly impressed that the developer fixed the issue and contacted me. They have a customer for life with that kind of service. Great app! Problem fixed!
“Has useful tools. Have used to plan a couple of Milky Way shoots. But dof table locks the app when clicking on it. App is a bit glitchy.”
For this price, I expected much more functionality from this app. I have PhotoBuddy and LongExp and they cover most of the functionality of this app and much, much more. Buying both is also cheaper. But you can’t have all things in one costume made app, right? It could at lease be cheaper, but the developers seem active and I really expect to see new features and improvements.
