There was an app thread, but can't find it right now...

I have no affiliation with any of the App creators, I'm just a very happy and enthusiastic I-Phone owner/user...


But did anybody check out the Sun Calculator as of yet ($30.-):

And an app that my daughter went gaga over, add lyrics to your I-Tunes Library (FREE):

Listen to the music in I-Tune and it adds the Lyrics automatically (96% at the time so far)

Hey Erwin,

I actually did a pretty detailed review of Helios (the sun calculator) on my blog at http://emoore.co.uk/...versus-sunpath/ if anyone's interested.

Great app, worth the money. As is pCam.

Hi Ed,

Nice write up.


Now for something silly... a level for your I-phone camera... for all those Monitors that didn't have a level?!?!?!
I guess it could come in handy with the new video capability... mount it on a Merlin and go?

No, that's to much.

Here's a few apps I've found really helpful:

- Evernote: The new 3.0 software now supports syncing of Notes through the Notes app, but the downside is you have to sync it manually via the cable. Evernote syncs your notes with the Evernote server through a free account, and you can access the notes from the Evernote app on your PC or Mac. Furthermore, you can create image notes, text notes, voice notes and more. Best of all, the app is free both on desktop and iPhone. For a fee, you can increase the size of your sync space on the Evernote server.

- Eventful: Go to the website and sign up for an account, and it interfaces with your iTunes library to note your "favorite artists". Then, you can view upcoming concerts on the Eventful app, mark some as interested or if you're going. I discover concerts all the time just by opening the app once a week.

- Air Sharing: This $4.99 app allows you to mount your iPhone as a wireless drive over a Wi-Fi network, and upload files directly to the app's storage. Files you can open include most image files, PDF, RTF, numbers, pages, Excel, Word docs, etc. Comes in really handy if you want to take a PDF document somewhere without emailing it to yourself. There's a PRO version just released that allows you to email the files as attachments, zip or unzip files, print, etc.

- Now Playing: Find movie times based off your GPS location, ties in to review percentage via Rotten Tomatoes, and even lets you control your Netflix queue, all for free!

- Pandora Radio: Based on the Pandora project, this app functions just like the desktop version. Tell it a song, an artist, or an album that you like, and it cross references other music similar to your input to create a custom radio station. The app then streams the music you might like, and you can rate it higher or move on to another song. I've discovered a lot of new music this way.

- Wooo! Button: All it does is shout "Wooo!" at you when you press the screen. Amazing what we can do with technology, yes?

I just found an iPhone app called Wrap Time which calculates your hours, ins and outs, meals, OT and kit rental.

Wrap Time iPhone App

Wasn't there an old Steadicam joke page or cartoon document that dated back in the day of or by Ted Churchill or someone that talked about the perfect AC or something who would calculate your times and meal penalties???

I just found an App called Sleep Cycle. You stick it on the corner of your mattress, and it uses the phones accelerometer to detect you moving in bed, and it plots a graph which shows your sleep patterns. Not sure how accurate it is, but for 99p, its quite interesting to look at the stats the next morning.


Also they make Wheres Wally/Waldo for iPhone now. Childish, but good fun, and surprisingly difficult. Good way to pass time.

Hi

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in follow focus. But this has to be one of the ultimate iphone apps for Steadicam.



http://www.plcelectr...ry/76/13337/0/0

Not sure what to make of it myself! Would be interested to here if any body has tried this.

Interesting cheap (ish) backup to a digital motor based system maybe?
