    Only meters correctly on app start. Pressing Start per instructions give horrendously wrong results. Great looking app though. And usable at each load of app. Just have to reload.

    Great app, accurate on the note 1, but no f/13 setting so I can't use it for my holga.

    This app does a great job of reading light and giving you the info in a simple to read and understand format. You can use the EV reading to quickly determine the differing light levels in a potential scene. Love it.

    Too bad it needs a net connection. I'd give it 5 but that lowers it's usefulness significantly

    Have not used an incident meter for years. This works, and can be so much more useful than the camera's reflective meter. Thanks! If you're not getting an accurate reading, make sure device is pointed right way. Meter on screen side of my phone.

    This works great for my Leica M6 better than the 2 arrows light meter. My exposures come out exact perfectly which lets me make perfect use of making large prints from color positive slide film and Kodak ektar. It also gives wide latitude film amazing dynamic range both ways. Best photography meter app ever.
