Really useful but could use some improvements

Mostly it just needs a way to favorite/save pre-existing set ups. It also needs a way to identify what each object in the diagram is when you discover one so you know what to use even when the creator won’t describe it (frequent). Otherwise REALLY useful especially for photographers just beginning to learn sty the tic lighting

Very Nice, Free, Light Diagram Tool

This is a great app, especially considering its price tag (free). The UI takes a little while to get used to, but once you figure out how it works the tool becomes intuitive and powerful. It can be a little difficult to rotate and resize images on the small iPhone screen (especially if you have big fingers like me) but its doable. An iPad version of this app that takes advantage of the iPad's larger screen real estate would be incredible and I'm really hoping that Sylights is considering it. In terms of enhancements, it would be great to be able to attach (or link) a corresponding photo to the light diagrams directly from each diagram (perhaps from the properties dialogue) and it would also be great to be able to upload diagrams directly to their site directly from the app (as opposed to exporting the image and then having to upload it manually). Those enhancements, coupled with the addition of a few more light modifiers to choose from for each diagram, would make this a killer app for strobist photographers.

It’s alright..

I wish there more options for walls, and furniture. Even some simple lines and shapes that I could use to represent things.

The ability to tap and hold and choose a custom color for gels would be nice.

And the ability to rotate things on the X,Y, and Z axis.

More range of scaling for the diagram would be cool too.

Would definitely pay for some of these features.
