Great for planning travel videos
Although this maybe overkill for my modest needs, I found it invaluable for staying organized during a couple of days of shooting travel footage in Paris. It can be so easy to overlook key shots on a hectic schedule but I was able to include screenshots of maps and reference images and then reorganize everything according to location. It even helped me to previsualize my final edit. The app itself feels mature and robust. A lot of thought has obviously gone into it. Highly recommended for a wide variety of video/film shoots.

Over all Great app but could use a few features.
Over all I really like this app and its simplistic nature, but could use a few extra features like a gear and prop list to be used in scenes. Also a more in depth cast section. With things like contact info etc. maybe even some more character options like a bio, and a place to put down what drives a character. I know this is just a shot list app but could be helpful as an option. And really could use a Crew Section for scenes too. So you can mark who should be there etc. and one last thing is Time slots for shots..that would be very helpful.. Hopefully the App Creators will see this.

Thank you developers for this amazing app!
THANK YOU for this app. I had my first major filming last month and it kept everything organized. One request: is it possible to link projects? For example, I have the project that’s by scene order. To make scheduling the crew better, I duplicated the project and arranged the schedule by cast members. Now, when I mark that a scene has been shot, it would be very beneficial if both files reflected the mark. Or if I altered a shot in one of the scenes, both files show that altered shot? I hope I’m making sense here. It’s nice to have a project in scene order AND a scheduling order at the same time. But seriously, thank you for this app. It really helped me organize and make sure every shot was done in a very tight deadline. During the shooting day, things can get very hectic and this app made sure I didn’t forget anything.

Useful and fast
This software keeps you organized when planning and executing shots. I use it even to "think out loud" how I would film something. I like it better than most other phone based tools because it's easy and fast to use (it even includes shot mock ups) without compromising the essentials - you can print and email your work for collaboration. Awesome!

Awesome awesome awesome!!!
This software am only giving four stars… And it’s mainly on my in a why it’s far four stars. The more I use this software the more I realize that it has a lot of features and a lot to offer. I’m glad that I’m tech savvy enough and able to find a lot of the stuff, but I wish that they were to tutorials on the software. I was able to create a ShotList and a storyboard within two days of using the software! I highly recommend it to all!

Love it
I have been using ShotList for several years now and absolutely love it. It is a huge help scheduling my shoots. I only wish that they also had it available as computer software instead of just apple ipad / iPhone apps. I would gladly pay a monthly fee for such an option.

Shotlist Is An Outstanding App!
I had been looking for an affordable shotlist software app that did not require a subscription. For $9.99 Shotlist is an outstanding App. I'm using it with my Macbook Pro, and it works pefectly. This a versatile App that does everthing and more that my physical stripboard did. Thanks to the makers for creating an outstanding App!

Perfect App To Shoot Your Film
This helped me immensely planning and prepping my feature film. Gives you the confidence to know what you need even as it changes on the days of filming. Just finished my film and can’t wait to use this app on my next one.

Great App
This app is awesome! I am a professional filmmaker and I use it for all my projects. It is super easy to create shots, edit them, and reorganise. As someone who storyboards on actual paper (luddite, huh?) the import photo from camera is also useful. This is a great app, recommend to all!

Love the app. Any plans for iCloud syncing?
Really enjoying the app. Keeps me organized on my projects, scouting and shoot days. Just curious if any future updates will include iCloud syncing? Would love to make edits on my iPad that I can also make adjustments from my phone and or Mac. Thanks!

Ease of use a huge plus
We all have too many things to do, much less learn a new program. We’re an agency in Houston Texas and been using this app since 2012. It works and is fast and that’s what we’re looking for.

Great surprising find
I stumbled across this app and thought I try it as we wanted to transition from a word doc and something more structured. Had it for two weeks and it’s great, deep enough for great organization and creativity but not overwhelming to learn.

Absolutely epic - great for the novice
Started making review videos because I was trying to film the stupid SRAM rear derailleur on my new mountain bike, and then ran into issues with a cheap action camera compared to a GoPro I just got at the same time. Then it became a review video of those, then a DJI Osmo Mobile, and now other stuff. Point is, I'm a software engineer and a musician with no idea how to arrange thoughts outside of notes. I just wanted something I could pictures with and have stock, simple images to arrange shots and bundle scenes for various locations. This does that. And if you have zero idea how to number your scenes or think the example looks great but can't figure out the shorthand terminology, don't worry: it guides you. Seriously. Just make a new one, and then touch each entry and you'll be able to scroll for selections. Those cool stock pictures are also available once you select a framing for the shot. And you can add doodles for the storyboard too. The only things I've had to really think about was scene and camera numbering. It will build a usable collection of entries for your slate automatically if you like once you enter basic stuff from what was scrolled. I tend to think of cameras by make and model (years of experience with more specific information needed in other professions) so keeping them mapped to numbers is something I was getting used to already. Much easier to get information out of the you had rolling around in your head to others and be consistent. Big help with media management using the generated naming convention.

Works great for me
I downloaded this app after the last update (on February 28), and it appears that the problems that others were noting have been fixed. I have experienced no crashes, or lost data. In fact, I have to say, I really like this app. It is obvious that the developer has put a lot of thought and effort into it, and he seems genuinely interested in dealing with users' issues. When I e-mailed him with a small issue I was having, he responded immediately. I sent him a screen shot of the problem, he identified the cause, and assured me that it would be fixed in the next update. Best customer service experience I have had to date with any app! Don't let the other reviews discourage you -- this is a good app!

Not as bad as reviewed
This is probably only my 2/3 review of an app, but really wanted to show my support for an app that has so much potential that I'm hoping this encourages the developers. I just used this today on one of my first shoots and while it may be too "simple" for some users and without enough features it was absolutely great for me. Just enough to reference with my script on set an check off or reorder shots as needed! I even used to iPad camera to snap a few angles of what I thought we needed. I did crash a few times in the pre-pro stage when I was inputting some scene numbers but with the new more frequent autosave it wasn't enough to make me refuse to use the app. It was only really happening when picking scene numbers or locations. No crashes occurred during the shoot when checking off shots as done or rearranging order. I say give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised like I was. I definitely plan on using this app again.

Great Customer servcie
So far I'm very happy with this app and it does most everything I'd hope….any features that are missing will hopefully be in the next update. Any issues that I had were "user error" and were more that quickly resolved by the FAST customer support response…who went above and beyond as far as I'm concerned. If you are on the fence about purchasing this App, I say DO IT! If for no other reason than the customer support. ps….Shotlist is really a great way to organize your shoot and keep your crew on the same page

Almost amazing
This is a really impressive app that I suspect will become amazing in one or two more updates. As others have mentioned, there are some really weird inefficiencies in the user interface. It took me several minutes to figure out how to add a new shot, the button that means "ok take me to the next field" isn't consistently and conveniently located, little things like that. But the big update that I hope is coming would be the ability to sketch a shot using your iPad instead of taking, organizing, and linking images from your iPad library. Add the basic functionality of DrawSomething to this app for creating storyboards on the go, and this becomes a five star app even with those other quirks.

Excellent tool!
I bought this when it first appeared on the app store. Version 1 had some issues but the developer has addressed them all and added functionality that makes this a true replacement for the traditional stripboard. In fact, theres really no reason to resort to the old pen and paper approach Shotlist offers more in every way We now use it on all our productions, and being able to share shotlists through Dropbox makes it indispensable. The developers seem very committed to making Shotlist the digital standard for shot planning, with regular updates and listening to user requests. Great product!

Really like this.
I just bought this program. The developers really put some thought into this or else consulted with filmmakers on this. Lots of handy features that make it easy to create easily and share. I just worked up a project and it was just nice to use this program to do it. Good job, developers. I look forward to updates.

Worked for me
My needs are simple: string of shots for a single scene. So this app worked awesome for that; no crashes or deleted info. I do not need the stripboard or the cast functions or even the location. I do in-house production for non-profit. I used this app off my iPad and it was great. I do wish I could customize a bit. Instead of Scene 1, Scene 2 etc, I would love it to read Shot 1, Shot 2. For a new scene I would just start a new project. Also, I wish there was a way to tag a shot as being a certain camera (or camera position). That way I can quickly see which shots to shoot from say Position A and which from B and so on. Would help shoot non linear saving time. I tried using the Delay tag to set certain shots apart and that kinda worked. Mass potential. Keep improving please!!

Very Smart Production App
I have had several versions of this very smart and handy app. The developers show a better understanding of the production process than other, and sometimes more expensive apps. Their response to user suggestions from the field is very commendable. They seem to be dedicated to making the best app of it's kind.

Great app
Great for organizing a shoot and planing what needs to be done on a daily schedule. It was a great help on my last project. Only request to developers would be to add options to storyboard feature. Options like camera movement and position I added that information in my notes for each one but it would b nice to have it preset into the app That being said loved the app liked using it and encourage other to get it .

Production planning tool - not a shot list tool!
Great tool for planning a shoot overall and managing a stripboard. But aside from being able to upload photos from your library, this app has zero to do with "shot planning". If you need to organize shot plans, images in a storyboard format, identify camera/lens settings, lighting requirements, camera movements, blocking, etc. for each shot—look elsewhere. The developer names this app "ShotList" and then acts astonished that someone is asking where the shot list features are. Frankly, I am astonished.

Very useful
The day after I got the app I used it on a 5 day commercial shoot. Used it as my on set strip board and it worked great. Was able to easily reorganize my shot order as things came up and the "done" feature really helps keep track of what is left to shoot. Very very happy with the app.

Love using this app thus far. It is nice to be able to work from my phone and check off shots and scenes as we do them. The only thing that annoys me is how small the buttons are. Makes it hard to get it to figure out which one I'm tapping.

Pretty good but only 6 shots in shot list?
It's a pretty good app, worth the money. But it only gives me the option of 6 shots in the shot list per scene. Trust me I'm shooting more than 6 shots per scene, hoping there will be a patch sooner than later, but still good app. Would be great with unlimited shots.

Promising but too buggy for production
The app has promise. However, it is riddled with bugs. Both crash causing bugs and bugs that will cause the program to stick in text entry mode without allowing you to complete the entry and move on. Adding shots is non-intuitive and a bit confusing. If the dev can fix these issues, I'd reccomend it. Otherwise, save your money.

Needs work
It's a really REALLY great concept, but still needs more development. For example, you can't share a working document for other users to make changes and MOST annoyingly, you can ONLY use it on an iPhone or iPad so if you want to use it from your MacBook to tidy things up it make amendments before sending it out to an ENTIRE crew - forget it!
