I am a bit disappointed that I paid and the clapper quit clapping at 16 takes. We only had 16 takes because there is no option to put or see much of the information for scene or episode. For sake of getting through we have been using takes instead. Otherwise I am using it because its all I've got.

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.
