Now usable, but not that useful IMHO

This app has a fundamental bug - every time I try to use it, it simply closes down. What’s the point?!

UPDATE: It appears that this bug has been fixed; however, I don’t find the app particularly useful as the information is pretty lean but, that’s just my opinion - I can see that it is the sort of thing others might like.

Developer Response ,

We apologise for the issue with the App. The fix has now been released. There is an update available in your App store. Please email us on: with more details in case of any further issues. If the App is working fine again, we would appreciate if you could consider changing your rating.

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 Besides that, we are working on improving the Favourites functionality, so stay tuned!

I love this app

This app is great because it has so many tips and new ideas but I have been through and written them all down, so I have now finished everything that the app does and it has no more it also has become a bit slow. If it had more tips this app would be the most helpful photography app ever!
