Shot Lister is the only truly professional shot list & scheduling app. Take that crumbled piece of paper out of your back pocket & touch the digital future of shot listing.
Shot Lister revolutionizes the art of shot listing from pre-production to the minute by minute decisions on set. It's designed by experienced filmmakers to deliver the only solution that can build, organize, schedule & share shot lists & shooting schedules digitally.
Shooting a film never goes to plan, now instead of scribbling over your printed out spreadsheet, you can get back on track with a flick of a finger.
Shot Lister comes with TWO options:
SHOT LISTER which is more than capable of handling most indie productions & includes the ability to add hundreds of scenes & thousands of shots, customizable categories & multi-cam support. This is a one time purchase of $13.99US & all updates are free.
SHOT LISTER PRO is for more complex productions that require specific features.. These include the ability to import scripts, add storyboards, circle takes & sync files. PRO is an optional in-app purchase with an annual subscription fee of $13.99US. The subscription gives you access to the features below marked (PRO). The subscription is charged to your Apple ID, and automatically renews annually. The subscription can be canceled up to 24 hours before the renewal date in your Apple ID settings.
Subscribers really help bring new features much sooner to both Shot Lister & Shot Lister Pro.

Ratings and Reviews
Decent but lack some basic options
We tried it on a film shoot and it was a bit of a headache to actually use it right due to the fact at day of filming things can go a bit off planned and so sometimes you will need to add shots or adjust, when there are multiple cameras involved.
The inconsistently sections (some areas requiere you to save to continue others simple using cancel) makes it a bit hard to follow through.
And when there are good takes, the circle takes option lack the ability to add additional notes (about these good takes) make it a need to jog info down to paper and then that means it requieres some combination of tablet and paper.
It's not bad but it's just felt incomplete. I will try it for another simple filming and will see.
Update. After three weeks of trying to use it on our feature film shoot. We decided not to continue using it. It's too time confusing while on set when there's a readjustment of the shot list or need to make additional shot list. Not to mention the limited tools to make it more intuitive. So l have cancelled my yearly subscription and decided leave this app alone.
If you use multiple cameras this can become extremely difficult to use.
Great ideas but when in real environment with script supervisor, it's more headache to make it work than to use pen and pencil.
Update: latest version of the app is definitely improved and the developer seems to earnestly be working hard at making this app amazing. I’m sticking with it and would encourage others to get behind a great developer that listens.
Keep coming back to this app because I love the concept, unfortunately it fails in the implementation category. Syncing for example is really rough. Sometime sync works, but more often projects fail to sync or duplicate. Signing in and out sometimes resolves the issue, but not always. If this worked as advertised, reliably, it would be amazing.

Thanks for taking the time to update your review. We are filmmakers ourselves and appreciate feedback so we can keep improving Shot Lister across all our platforms.
I use this on three different platforms, MacOs iPad and my iPhone. It's awesome for planning out shoots.
However there are issues with with uploading and syncing between devices. Let's say I create a shot list on my Mac, I try to sync it to use on my iPhone, but it doesn't work. So I'll save a file out locally and try to reimport it on my iPhone to make adjustments on the go. That works, but now that file I've adjusted won't sync to the cloud off my iPhone. So I again can't access it on any other device.
Another issue is, when trying to save out a PDF with images off of my iPhone, it makes the PDF but the images don't show up. And yes I set it to export with images. Sometimes it works but often times it doesn't export the images.
It seems to work the best on iPad.
Saying all that I still recommend the app, besides those strange technical issues, the program itself is SUPER useful.

Please check that you have extended Pro from the device you bought it on to your other devices. Go to settings and check that Pro is showing an expiry date. If not, & it's showing you a Purchase Pro option, it means Pro has not been extended. This means, while you can sign into Crew Sync on your other device and see Project files, you won't be able to sync and Publish To Crew Server without extending Pro first.
