 Thanks to Tim's promo code generosity (Thanks Tim) I have the iPhone version of this app.

I really like this app. The interface is well designed, clean & easy to navigate. Among it's

many features are a calibration tool, snapshot capability with notes (great for scouting), and

the ability to select multiple lenses for comparison.

 I tested the app against a camera & lens & it was accurate.

 

 Two things I noticed about the app that could be improved are...

1. Would like to see a shortcut for lens selection on the viewfinder screen, like there is for camera

    format selection.

2. In the lens selection screen--you change lenses by selecting or deselecting the saved lens choices.

    If you deselect a lens, leaving no lens selected, before you select another, the app defaults to the

    first lens on the list (a 6mm in this case). So when you choose another lens & return to the

    viewfinder screen, you have two lenses selected-the one you chose & the 6mm lens.

 

 These are very minor issues. I have conveyed these issues to the creators & they are going

to look into them. I was impressed by their response time to my communication!

 

Again, I really like this app, and will use it often!
