Loved it until....

This is a great app. When it works. When trying to change f-stops, the app to crashes. The only work around I've been able to find is uninstalling and reinstalling.

The app seems to work ok, giving exposure time estimates based on light meter reading, ISO, and aperture. Custom apertures are possible, f/222 for example, which is critical for pinhole photographers.
Unfortunately this app is ad-supported, which is neither disclosed in the description nor shown in the app screenshots. So thanks for wasting my time...

Don’t bother.

App doesn’t work. Keeps asking to allow camera access but no way to do that.
