Since a discussion with friend Seth Krugliac of the post house and audio specialist 5 Guys Named Moe...geez, that's a long sentence already. Anyway, he was developing an iApp...no, I mean, actually developing one, not like me and 50,000 other people who are just waiting for some version of hardware and software that will eventually do what we need to make the app-of-a-lifetime actually work. Yet again...not to the point...Anyway, Seth has finished that app before I got the iApp article written that I was hoping for.
Certainly, no one can write a iApp article without giving homage to Taz Goldstein's Hand Held Hollywood website. It has a great collection of reviews, plus a directory that seems to include everything.
ARRI also has an extensive site of iApps at: ARRI CSC - Apps for Work or Play
That said, there doesn't seem to be a section for the impossible task of "What are people using now?", which is what I imagined for an article. It is supposed to begin with the 5 Guys iApp named Post Production Calculator App.
"We're very happy we succeeded in creating an app that anyone working in post-production – or production, for that matter – will find useful on a regular basis. It's simple, accurate and very intuitive...and our editors, mixers and clients use its functions on a daily basis." What more could anyone ask for, and how well Seth said it.
First, the Apps that are not Production or Post Utilities
Art of the Guillotine – This app has news feeds and audio interviews with editors from around the world. Exclusive to this app: videos of panels, interviews, and discussions of film editing as well discover editors near you and upcoming events using the events section. Basically, this is the App version of the website: Art of the Guillotine - Film & Video Editing News, Websites, Articles, Videos, Blogs and More!
Then there are these useful utilities that are not "Pro"
And, what we all are looking for (not yet categorized by Production or Post...in fact, still a work in progress):
More to come...
