Ratings and Reviews
Using this Covid Lockdown to study my EOS M5 information on the app and it is really great and helpful. Can’t wait to get out, just had my vaccination thanks to wonderful NHS, and try to become a better Canon photographer also using my old trusty Canon Powershot G12
Love this app but...
This is a great app, it gives a instructions on how to use your particular camera and using its functions.
It gives you lots of tips of how, what and when to use different techniques to get better and how to produce great results.
BUT...unless I’ve missed something, there is no search for things that you’ve read about, you know it’s in there somewhere, so it would be nice to refer to it immediately instead of trawling through until it randomly appears, by then the sun has set or your subject is bored and gone home!!
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for this great review :) In the new version of the app available for you in the App store you have 2 new features that should help you navigate the content on the app: 1. 'Recently viewed' section on the home page and 2. Search option on home page (the little magnifying glass in top right corner). Remember that you can also mark a piece of content as your favourite by tapping the little flag in the top right corner. Favourites roll will then show up on home page. We hope this helps. Thanks again
Need a save for later button
This is a good app for reminding you of features to try that are included in you model of camera. I feel it could have the ability to “save for later” or “add to favourites” for the tutorials so that you can refer back to them at a later date or even a “download a pdf version” so you can have it to hand offline maybe? Or am I missing something?
Other than that I think it’s a nice app.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoy the app! Most of the content on the app is available offline, so if you have issues accessing it, please send us more details on email@example.com. Besides that, we are working on improving the Favourites functionality, so stay tuned!
