    I would use this app if it had a direct link to the record function so that info could be entered in via the spoken word rather than written or worst typed into an Iphone with auto spell correct.
    Nice, hope to see that feature become reality.
    Cheers!

    Interesting app. I agree that it should alow audio notes and a button to associate a ihone photo to the film holder records. Also, something about A and B side would be nice.

    So much for bucking the stereotype that LF photographers are luddites.

    I tried it, but keeping in the habit of using it was difficult for some reason. I've never been a good note taker.

    Also, since it's on IOS I have to remember to take my old iPhone after switching to android.

    It looks like the app is no longer in the app store unfortunately, or maybe my iTunes and Apple Store apps are broken.

    This week and next I am going to file notches into the end flaps that match the Brother label numbers. The files create gaps that are rectangular, triangular and half-round. Using those three shapes I can create a number code that runs from 0 to 999 - far more than enough.

    When I am creating photographs, I make notes in a hard back 5x7 inch book that includes subject, exposure, sheet film holder side, etc.

    One thing I forgot to include in that posting was that I created an Excel spreadsheet in which I keep track of each of my over one hundred 4x5" sheet film holders:

    * it's numbers (each side is unique; I don't use "A" / "B")
    * when I bought it
    * where I bought it
    * how much I paid
    * the condition it was in when I bought it (if not new)
    * how I cleaned it, if needed
    * any problems that show up when I use it
    * etc.


    This way if I ever want to buy more from a particular seller (or don't, in the case of problems) then I know my history with it.

    My only interaction with the spreadsheet is when I purchase a sheet film holder and then later if it turns out to have a problem. Otherwise, I just keep written records in a 5x7" hard-backed notebook that are created when I expose the film and after developing.

    I will download it and she if she wishes to use it for her holders. I use the "carry pencil and paper and forget to use either of them" system.

    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Re: Great app for managing your Film Holders

    I must be doing it completely wrong, I've never taken a note of what I shot, camera settings, or what sheet was in which holder to date.

    Why would I need to?

    Granted I'm still (just) this side of 50, so maybe all will become clear in time (or less clear?).

    I've done many things wrong in photography, but the notes I took on photos taken with a Univex Mercury II camera in 1952 made those mistakes a valuable learning experience.
