Great app, but missing I seem to be missing the ability to put gels in a grid formation and ive lost the ability to take a picture and get an estimate of the gel equivalent, very handy trick, if not exactly precise. Cheers

Great app but I want a killer feature Great app but I would love the ability to display a color full screen. On my device with an amoled display this would give me the ability to project the color at close range and use it as a mini light lab. Would be a neet way to test colors on paint swatches. Re: Reply Thank you for the reply. While no screen will render the colors precisely I still feel it would be useful for limited situations. If the rendering is good enough for the apps features it should be good enough for this, otherotherwise..

Awesome app! Love this app! Use it for almost every show I do. Very helpful with having all the color curves. But the one thing I do really miss is the ability to take a picture and have the app color match. What ever happened to that? Would love to see that be incorporated again but other than that, this is a fantastic application!!

Nice, but missing some Rosco series Nice lightweight app, but it's missing the Rosco 4-digit series, with all of the color corrections (e.g. Rx3313, tough1\2 minusgreen).

Great. Missing a couple features. Best color app for android but not quite as full featured as equivalent ios app. Specifically miss the ability to compare side by side, SED curves appearing without needing to click a separate button, overlaying SED curves, and finding complimentary colors. Overall very nice work.

Handy app Would get 5 stars if it had Chris James too as we use it almost exclusively. Ta

Outstanding tool Outstanding tool for cross referencing gel colors all manufacturers. I use this thing all the time.

Very helpful but missing all the Rosco 3000 series.

New: in 2.0 removal from gel fave crashes now FIXED:Backup buttons need to be consistent throughout the app - fixed. ALL internet downloaded pics need to be PNG, otherwise too blurry after zooming further in (NEW. Come on Rosco,Lee, Gam get on that!) All color metrics could autozoom to size and orientation of device? In lists, would be nice to be able to add our own descriptions, maybe even share or submit to a community doc? Perhaps add side-by-side gel match? And, add Apollo gobos (if they allow it)! Dev super rsvp!

4 Stars - where are the Lee diffusions? Paul Blakey, I love this app! I work with Best Boys who aren't too gel-savvy and I always recommend them to download your app. You'd get a full 5 stars if you weren't missing all the diffs/frosts. Where's my 216, 250, 410, etc.?

gurg burgelson my neighbors dog loves this app with it's 10inch gel.

Diffusion? Very nice concept. 5 stars when you add diffusion.

SED curves for Lee don't load ... otherwise I would give this 5 stars. Update/fix and I will change it! Love that you can save and name lists. Very useful tool for helping to choose color, find alternatives or similar colors. Neat feature: find gel suggestions from a picture taken while in the app. Pretty accurate on Galaxy S3.

Thank you! Very useful. Glad to have this on the Android market since there is one on why Apple market. I would like to see an option where you can change from swatch book order to numerical order.

Great start But where is L228 and the frosts? Also the graphs are a bit lame. You need to standardize them.

Incomplete Should include ALL the colors. Gam neutral density is missing as are some frosts. What about adding a converter/ approximater for when you've burned through all the L201 and have to make something up?

almost there Missing Rosco gels especially the colour correction sets 34xx, 32xx, etc.

Good reference Nice for quick reference, since I don't regularly carry multiple gel books in my pocket.

Good app over all. Missing a few colours but a good app!

Disregard previous review. Wrong app

Needs color correction list I would very much like to see a list of CC. or a "whats 1/4 -G" listing thats shows a gel list based on steps / color

Shamysh Very nice app.Can you make a libary of Rosco Ecolor.Tank You

Not incredibly useful. Static. Youre stuck with what this guy thinks are useful color schemes.

Awesome!! Thank you very much. Very useful, free tool. Great work!

Works great, love having a version on my phone. Would be cool if it came with a gel cutting app. Like they have for the iPhone.

Truly my favourite app. Go techies! :)

Fuckin sweet. This is so much better than kittens.

Very useful quick reference tool. Works well on my HTC Desire and is reasonably accurate.

Great Idea! As a newbie to lighting. A swatch book is a God send. To find it in mobile app, doubly so. Thanks!

I like colors! Works on n1, android v2.3.7

Good App But please add Chris James gallery of filters. Thank you

HTC One M8 Marshmallow may be causing problems... Great app! It sadly stopped working after I updated to Marshmallow... hopefully there will be an update that fixes it soon. Everything else is perfect.

Crashes Keeps crashing on Android 6. Won't start at all. Please fix. This is the best filer app

Crashes on 6.0 Love this app but since I updated to Android 6 I can't even open it any more.

What happened to my saved lists? Before August 2016 update, had 2 saved lists, seem to be gone now. Do like the full screen patch though.

New update looks great But lost the "similar gel" which is the only reason I use it.

Wow, 3 years!? And use the What's New section; after 3 years between updates, we have no clue what you changed or added. ALL internet downloaded pics need to be PNG, otherwise too blurry after zooming further in (NEW. Come on Rosco,Lee, Gam get on that!). All color metrics could autozoom to size and orientation of device? In lists, would be nice to be able to add our own descriptions, maybe even share or submit to a community doc? Perhaps add side-by-side gel match? And, add Apollo gobos (if they allow it)! Dev super rsvp!

Fantastic App Only reason it doesnt get 5 stars is that i recently updated my phone and now the app won't even open. Before that, it was my go to app for every show.

Doesn't open Used to work great, now doesn't open at all without force closing

Lost lists is crap Used to have a load of saved gel lists for shows/designs (that are now gone), that were very useful for showing directors ideas. Please please please please bring back the lists option, this app suffers without it. This would be a five star app if you bring it back.

Maybe my version is missing features? I just downloaded this because I'm trying to learn how the colors affect scenes. No instructions or definitions on what I'm looking at. What does that graph mean for example? Also, personally, I'd like a search feature. Ex. underwater, sunset, sunrise, moon.

Update not good. Why did you take away the gel comparison option and the light transmission info. Please fix that. Also you are missing all the Rosco 3000 series. If you fixed those issues I would buy the ad free version.

Update disappointing Updated version looks slick, but seems to have lost 'similar gels' which was invaluable. Saved list are also gone too? Also a search function would be great.

What happened? This app is great for finding gel colors and has helpful suggestions for when to use them. However I really miss the search, compare, and list functions. I'm very disappointed with the update.

What happened to my saved lists? Before August 2016 update, had 2 saved lists, seem to be gone now. Do like the full screen patch though.

Looks great, but lost functionality Used to be able to search for colours and keywords, which was invaluable for Lee colours, and could also access a list of similar colours. If this is still available in paid version, I'd consider purchase, but the update now makes it on par with the swatchbooks I keep by my console.

Gel lists?! This app is useless without the custom gel list and the search feature.

Romoved Lists feature, update removed way to much for seemingly no reason. Incrediblely dissapointed

Where have the features gone? It has lost the similar gel function and the search function? Please fix ASAP!!
