Back in december of 2009 I graduated from film school in central florida (guess which one ), anyways, while in school I developed an app for mac OS X as a visual aid for DoF calculation, to help others and myself learn how DoF works with different formats and lenses an so on. Everyone I showed it to said it would work better as an iPhone or Droid app, which I agree and I looked into developing it for the iPhone and Droid. The thing is, it is MUCH harder to develop for iPhone and Droid, and developing apps for smart phones is beyond my capabilities, just making this app for OS X was challenging enough.
Here's the app in question...
I called it Confucius
It is available for download on the "downloads" section on my site... www.jpchoiniere.com
Basically my question is, is it worth it?
Is such an app worth the effort to make a smart phone version of? is it something a 1st AC or anyone on a set could make use of?
also, I am aware that such apps already do exits for smart phones, but I have yet to see anything with similar visual interface as this. Im just looking for everyones 2 cents on this.

You may think this is good news - or bad news - but in fact Kodak have already developed a DoF app for iPhone. It's the only worthwhile part of the app, but it seems very good, and visually very simple to understand. Look for Kodak Cinema Tools v1.1
