One of the best if not the best Camera AC apps on Android. Developer was also quick to respond and help figuring out a bug. They were very helpful and quick send out an update to fix the issue. Definitely worth the price!

Pocket AC is an app that I use on literally every job I do as a 1st AC. The depth of field calc, tome of lens and camera data all in one place, and the multitude of other camera features make set life easy. If you're serious about the data part of the job, look no further. The dev keeps it up to date with modern tech and I see new stuff added all the time. It's worth the tax write-off on your LLC for sure!

Very essential tool that I use almost daily as a full-time Local 600 1st Assistant Camera. There are so many useful tools, and it's actually kinda funny that they don't have an iPhone version, which makes a lot of other ACs jealous because they're stuck with their handful of apps that still don't do all the things that this wonderful app does.
