    Hi everybody,

    I have developed :smile:) ) a Mac OS X app that can be used, to store, in one place, all the knowledge and experience about film development that everyone of us has, completed with times, dilutions, and notes about any particular film or developer, or combination of both. At the same time, it can be used as a development clock .

    It is called FND (film is not dead) and you can find more information about it here:

    http://www.bambooapps.com/fnd

    The app is shareware (a licence costs 12,95$), is Leopard only, and I hope it can be useful for many of us, both Mac and film lovers.

    Cheers,

    Hey, that's great! As a Mac programmer myself, as well as a soon-to-be film developer, I appreciate this sort of thing! I'll try it out.

    How does it stay current when there is an emulsion change?

    Looks neat, but is there some reason for such a relatively simple app to require 10.5?

    Hi Nicolay and Sirious Glass,

    The data entry is made by the user, not by the software itself, so the emulsion changes must be entered by hand.

    There is a reason behind the need for Leopard. Not in this actual release, but in one of the first updates of the app, as soon as it is publicy available, it will use some data sync services that can only be used on Leopard. So it will sync through .Mac, and it will sync to iPhone and iPod Touch.

    Thanks for your interest,

    This should be made for the IPOD so that you can use the IPOD as a timer.
