Great little tool

While the tool has some minor quirks, the devoloper is responsive and it's clear he is building this to be the swiss army knife of film note-taking. It's a vast improvement over jotting down notes in a notebook be it physical or Apple's built it notes app. Looking forward to future versions!

Fantastic tool

Fantastic tool - simple yet provides all functionality you need to keep track of your rolls. Easy to use in the field, and you get export option to backup your data (or further process it) — well deserved 5 stars!

Strange operation

Changing lens mid-roll is a hassle - you have to do it twice (why is there focal length setting and it’s not changing when I change the lens). Requires extra steps to attach an actual photo to each exposure, otherwise you have to rely on the sequence number to match EXIF to your scans later.

Simply using iPhone’s note taking app is far faster and easier.
