Expand app to include iPads


#1

It would be wonderful the app would also work on iPads.

Thanks.


#2

Yes, I would find having the app work on my iPad (a universal app?) very useful in my research.

I agree it’d be good to have a companion iPad app, to scan yes, but I think it could turn into your light source/scan aligning.

One Idea:

  • The iPad app could display a grid to line your negatives up with and then switch to the light once triggered by the iPhone app. I have the 12" iPad Pro, and I could fit quite a bit on it!

I’m curious how many of you own an iPad?[poll type=regular public=true]

  • Yes - 10" in or larger
  • Yes - 9" in or smaller
  • No

Nice poll @RedFox!

I have an iPad mini, but I’m thinking about getting one of the new Pros. An iPad definitely has the potential to be a great tool for working with film images. FilmLab should support running on iPads just fine, although I haven’t tested it yet. I’ll give it a try next week and report back.

Nice poll–except, there is an 9.7 inch iPad now and that is what I own.

So poll should probably say less than 10 inches instead of less than 9.

Glad to hear that app should work with iPads.


#6

Good point, but if you think about it 9.7 is practically 10 :sunglasses:


#7

Ha ha. But not if you are a scientist and exactness matters.

Thanks. Put me in the greater than 10 category then.


#8

I think only you can edit your vote.


#9

What about a Samsung Tab 10.1.2014.! I have one. Maybe the app works this Tab too!

Results from testing on my iPad (I actually ended up getting one of the new basic 9.7" models):

  • Good: FilmLab works
  • Bad: Minimum focus distance is noticeably farther away compared to my iPhone 7, so you can’t fill as much of the frame with a negative.
