New PocketPC Program for development
Hi all. I'm working on a program for PocketPC which is very simple. It's mainly a database that lets you enter film, developer, dilution, time, temp, and agitation. You can save your favorite combos in a PDA and then, when you go to develop, you pour in the developer and press a "Run" button. The program beeps at every agitaion interval, then beeps a bunch when it's time to pour out the developer.
I like it.
Is there anyone else out there who'd like to try it out? Like I said, it's for PocketPC, and uses .NET Compact Framework 3.5, which you'll probably have to download from Microsoft and it'll install on the next device sync.
In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.
Nice idea. My main problem with Windows Mobile is it takes 5 taps to get anything done. I'm probably the last living Palm OS fan in the world.
No, you're not

For me, FotoTimer software on Palm is indispensable. I hooked it up with a 220V relay, and it also drives my enlarger. I use it for timing negative development and other processes, too...
But, I don't use it for anything else - just photo-related stuff (sometimes I also use it for note-taking in the field).
Lately, I've even started thinking about developing my own stuff for it. Just looking for a good RAD tool, for "beginner" programmers
I'd love to try that on my trusty iPaq! I used to use fototimer in the darkroom on a Palm IIIe, but it died a "left too close to wet things" kind of electronic death, and used to regularly need me to reinstall everything anyway, on account of the (non-rechargeable) batteries running out...!! And now I'm used to Windows mobile anyway...
Hey, Wolfeye !
I am on testing stage of "Photographer's DevChart" application for modern device Apple iPhone. This program contain devchart (like digitaltruth.com), it also have IndexBook section with detalied information about each film, developer and manufacturer. And on next version are store, lab and repir service location and routing using GoogleMaps from You place.
Also in that time database are filling, so if You have some source in internet about labs, repair service, great analogue stores, please do not hesitate to write me message in this forum or use private message.
With best wishes,

Well, I have an Palm and I made an film/developer database for it...
I created it in PalmOS application Smart List to go...
If anyone wants to try it...
Do you have a link to your application?
I use a Palm also. The BTZS software is excellent and only available for Palm. At some point there was talk of converting it to Windows but I don't think it ever happened. I wish I could get a Palm cell phone with camera, BTZS software, and integrated 1 degree spot meter and incident market. Unfortunately, I am a very small market.

You can enter new combinations from existing films & developers, add new films, new developers, and you can enter e.g. dilutions for developers, +N and -N development times, and also notes (dilution notes and freeform notes).
It's useful as a reference point, and entering new data is quite easy (that's what relational databases are for). There's even a database of prints with notes, and database of developed films...
If anyone's interested, I can post the zip file with appropriate *.pdb files. But, you'll need ThinkDB 2 to use it.
