    The Massive Dev Chart for Android

    Apologies if this isn't the write area to put this post, please feel free to move it to a more appropriate forum:

    As you're all more than likely aware, the Massive Dev Chart is an invaluable collection of development combinations and timings for literally hundreds of films and developers.

    It's been a while coming, but we now have a portable offline mobile application specifically designed for Android devices, which allows smart-searching of films and developers, results displayed for small, medium and large formats and extended information all at your finger tips.

    It's available now in the Android marketplace, just search for "Massive Dev Chart". All feedback welcome.

    The Massive Development Chart is too riddled with errors and inconsistencies to be particularly useful. Development temperatures aren't consistent, agitation techniques are mixed up & not always stated, and there's no standard target gamma/contrast.

    I've always regarded the MDC as providing a point of departure when I try new film / developer combinations. As such I find the chart very useful - it certainly gets me in the ballpark first time which is closer than pure guesswork. (Could say something about my guessworking abilities, of course ) I think I can honestly say that I've found I'm usually within two films of "nailing it" when I use the MDC recommendations as a starting point.

    I'll often get clients who have used Film X and want it developed in a developer they've read about somewhere - MDC is incredibly useful for that.

    JMHO

    I agree with Ian, however I also agree with Bob. :rolleyes:

    What I do know, is that I cannot find anything on the sight for "android devices", am I doing something wrong?

    Or maybe it is because you call yourself Purple, but I would say Violet!

    Mick.

    Android is an open source operating system for mobile computing based on linux. Think iPhone without vendor lock-in, and the ability for anyone to develop and distribute either free or commercial software without needing Steve Jobs' or the phone vendor's approval.

    Appreciate the info Lee. But that's far less interesting than the route Keith was headed down!
