Take One - Movie Clapperboard for iPad

By Steven Troughton-Smith

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Take One is a digital clapperboard and movie slate to keep track of your footage and takes, and to assist you in syncing audio with video.

Incredibly easy to use, without superfluous and complicated features. Create, type, clap and be ready to shoot in a gorgeous and simple user interface.

Whether you’re filming your awesome road trip or making the next big-budget blockbuster, Take One is the simplest and easiest digital movie slate to work with.

Managing your slates is child’s play. All the controls are straightforward and located at the top of each slate, for quick and easy access.

Have as many slates as you want. Flick through them rapidly, slide to take a peek of the one behind, or find them from a single list in case you have a lot. As you choose from the list, the slates will automatically switch to your selection for faster viewing.

The Day Mode is perfect for outdoor and well-lit scenes; shooting inside in a dim room is a different story. Simply switch from Day to Night Mode and the slates will turn black with a white font, avoiding unwanted glare from the white screen.

Modifying your slate is super easy. Simply tap on the scene, roll, or take numbers and Take One will automatically add +1 to the existing number. Double-tap to add lettering. If you need to reset the scene or enter a new name, just hit the edit button.


Choose between the traditional clap, or a loud 2 kHz beep.

You can set the FPS (Frames Per Second) rate freely from 1 to 99.

Making sure your camera is correctly color-balanced is just one tap away.

Set your timecode to the current time of the day, or start from zero.

Type in your data and the text will set itself to all-caps for better clarity and readability.

Swipe at the top or bottom of the slate to switch between projects. The center is less sensitive so you can avoid accidental swipes while holding the app.

Customer Reviews


The App is weak! The date can't be changed and the clapper function is hit or miss. My filmmaker friends called it faulty and laughed at me for purchasing it. Now I'm the laughingstock of the local film community and am thinking about killing myself. Even my dog stopped talking to me! Can these bugs be fixed?

Dosent work

The clapper just makes the sound and stops time for a second. This needs to be fixed

Not as promised

Purchased this app hoping to use it for its 2ghz beep. Unfortunately the beep does not work with iPad 3rd gen running 5.1.1. Disappointed at best..
