Simple and Effective Application

There’s a brief virtual tour video giving you the lay of the land. The user Interface is streamlined. You can even email production notes as an extra feature.

We have used this app on multiple shoots. It's Awesome ! Able to customize the items to fill your needs. Easily sync multi-cam shoots. I even found a small glitch in the iPhone app and it was corrected pronto.
Fantastic customer service from the app support team.
