    iPhone App for Recording Exposure Data & Field Notes

    I hope this is the correct location for this inquiry? If not, please move to the most appropriate forum.

    I'm looking for recommendations for iPhone apps that will allow me to record my exposure data while in the "field". Heretofore, I've been trying to use the excellent "Analogbook", but for a variety of reasons I am not adept or consistent at writing things down while making photographs. That being said, I always have my iPhone in my back pocket and a good app would be most helpful as I try to keep exposure data and field notes for future reference.

    Any recommendations or comments are sincerely appreciated.

    I use the "Voice Memos" app indigenous to the iPhone. No need to type or write and it is free, just label the audio file accordingly (I guess some typing).

    We're going to move this to "Gear" as it's really an accessory for field work that you're talking about. Carry on!

    Check out the app Reciprocity Timer. Its MUCh more then just a app to calculate reciprocity. It helps calculate your entire exposure take notes and add a reference photo.

    Interesting Zak. I have the Reciprocity Timer app, but have never explored its functionality beyond calculating reciprocity exposure adjustments. Thank you sir.

    I use Photoexif when I ise film.
    Registers all the data you want with a fast interface (you configure lenses, cameras and films), than transfer the data tour PC/Mac and load the data to the scanned film files.
    Really powerful.

    I use the Holders app on iOS.
    Takes a little to setup with your various holders and film types.

    But invaluable once its going. Can record exposure, has a notes section for additional shot info. Has ability for voice memos. Also takes a GPS fix when you save each shot [although I've not checked the accuracy of these].

    Cheers

    I tried that one before itís not nearly as helpful and useful as the Reciprocity Timer app.

    I believe Iíve used this one also. If I remember correctly it was really clunky and buggy. It looks like itís not available on the App Store anymore. Probably got pulled from the App Store because the developer never updated it. Apps have to be really old with no update for that to happen.

    Zone System Companion. Despite the name, tracks holders and can organize by "session". Also gives you the ability to take a quick snap of your subject to go along with the exposure data. The set up can be a little fussy, but overall it's a great app. Even supports exporting of data into delimited tables.
