This app is entirely sound based, you only need the mic on your phone to see if a given shutter speed is accurate. The UI is seriously unintuitive, clearly made by an engineer. I had to google the author's website to figure out how to even use it, and the documentation there had old screen shots. BUT... When I did get it figured out, it was very easy to use. Make sure to record in a quiet space, as you are the one that has to look at the resulting soundwave graph and figure out which bits are the sound wave peaks from your shutter opening and closing. This app is worth a dollar to be sure, but totally ripe for someone to make a much easier to use and more intuitive clone of it.
Works like it should.... A great little app that does what it says, nothing more, nothing less! Some instructions on showing how to place the guidelines to measure your exposure would be helpful... as well as how to expand the graph on high speeds and make it easier to see. I had to figure it out by myself :-(
Good but poor Very good app, though only really useable with an optical sensor plugged in. Developer is plainly talented but included no docs or help file. It's important to know which parts of the wave form to select, so you'll need to Google for that. Read up on the Audacity methods online. The 'corrections' column in your results are bizarre and unintuitive until you realise it's 1/3 stops, then it makes sense. So '+4' would mean +four 1/3 stops, or +one and a third stops, etc. Very useful app.
Thank you for bringing this to Android I will update my rating once I've had a chance to use the app. Right now I just wanted to say thank you for bringing this to Android. I purchased one of the plugs several months ago thinking there was an android app. I look forward to finally being able to use it.
Very useful...could be made more readable A very useful tool with the photoplug optical sensor. Higher speeds become almost impossible to interpret so the vertical height of waveforms should be restricted so the user can gauge the required 'front' and 'rear' waves when the screen image is highly magnified.
Works very well I tested a few of my large format lenses with this app. It works very well on both my Nexus 7 (second version) on Android 5.0.1 and Moto X (first version) on Android 4.4.4. I was surprised to learn that my oldest lens is nearly spot on at all but the very highest speeds! I expected it to be way off the mark. This app is extremely useful. A PhotoPlug may be in my future! This app is well worth the low price.
