    Needs some updates and more items. This has not had a single new item added to it since its launch. It's still my go to app, but still, some new items would be extremely useful and welcome

  • Incredibly useful Nov 25, 2016

    By Sam Graf
    I hope the developer did not abandon this app. It's an incredibly portable and powerful way for a filmmaker or director of photography to work out scene ideas. It helps amateur filmmakers take their craft to the next level. Sometimes spontaneity is the right way to go, sometimes careful planning, especially of something more complex than "selfie" videos, is the right way to go. Shot Designer is an invaluable tool for the latter. Thumbs up all the way. (BTW, the tutorial videos are all there, lower down on the page.)

    I have been using this email since many years now, after it has been highly been recommended by our camera teacher who works with haneke. After getting a new computer I had to manage my account - the customer service was excellent. I'll be using Shotdesigner many more years.

    As an "Old School" director, this seems to have just what I need to display to Cast and Crew.

  • Not supported any more? Aug 7, 2016

    By Ecmproject
    This is a wonderful app if you are using iPhones and cameras from 5 years ago. As far as I can tell now the app isn't really getting support outside of software updates and glitches. The field of views on the camera are basic and don't include a way to switch between sensor sizes on any modern camera, the aspect ratios are limited, and the last version of the phone in their list to match field of view is the iPhone 5S. Other than that it's a great diagraming app.

  • No longer opens? May 7, 2017

    By Josey444
    Nothing like paying for a pro version a few months back and now being unable to get the app to work. App technically opens up to land you on a blank / white page. Great idea, but a solid reminder of what happens when a Dev no longer supports their product or requires online access in order to work.

  • It does work! Aug 30, 2017

    By Roger Robot
    I got the "white screen of death" too. But their helpful support person provided a solution: Uninstall the app. Quit all other apps. Reboot the phone - three times (yes, insane) Download the app again. Open it again. This solved it for me and it now works great. Support indicated apple provides no way for vendors to respond to complaints, but hopefully this will let you know it is not a "dead app".

    Loved the app (yet to upgrade to #pro), does the upgrade come with a validity/is it for lifetime?

  • App does more than anything else on the market Feb 9, 2013

    By SelectedStories
    Nothing's perfect. But this app is invaluable as a teaching tool in my lighting classes. I can project the iPad screen and display, change and discuss lighting situations with students in class, before we move to setting up equipment. This saves valuable time and gets the students to think BEFORE they touch the lighting instruments. The animation tools are good, but could be less clunky. Also, can you add Google Drive as a option besides DropBox?

    Cannot get past the sign-in. Keeps saying it won't let me do so, and sends me to the website. I have an account, I've activated it through my email, still won't let me sign in.

  • Very Disappointing Nov 7, 2014

    By Maverick Producer
    I’ve given this a good run and am actually quite disappointed (especially now that I spent $20). Here are few of the biggest issues. 1: It would be nice to be able to duplicate an entire scene. If multiple scenes take place in the same location, then every time you want to make a separate scene you also have to build the “set” from scratch. I would like to be able to copy the entire set and drop/paste it into a new scene. 2: The idea of “pages” seems great on the surface but when you only have 5 pages available to you, it becomes a dud very quickly. I can keep adding to this list. You are so limited by functionality.
