    Hope Android users will have this app too. It's accurate and cheap. I used it shooting Friday. I was using my spot meter and the iPhone app and it's within a 1/2 stop of my Minolta meter's readings. Keep in mind that the app takes an average reading.

    I've been using Fotometer Pro for a while now. I have shot a few rolls of transparency film (35mm Velvia 50) and I think maybe 3-4 slides have been off, usually bracketed exposures. I turned the noises off a while ago.

    Agreed. Worldwide, there are more smartphones with android than iphones. Would be very welcome to have it on android.
    Perhaps as every iPhone is very similar, it's easier to write the program and be accurate on every device; I might guess why iit hasn't been ported to android.

    I've seen light meter apps on android platforms, but can't speak to their accuracy

    Yes but less android phones that can handle certain apps, only the top android phones can actually compare to iPhone and it may not be valuable to make an app like this for android, it wouldn't be as accurate because the camera phone used is different from model to model, where the iPhone camera is the same except with different models so there are 4 iPhone camera profiles but hundreds of android camera profiles to take into account.

    There are several light meter apps for Android, but I can't speak for their accuracy (you need to google around and read some reviews).

    The problem with the Android platform, is that there is a much larger variety in hardware than with Apple, so from what I've seen, the Android-based meter-apps seem to only support a small list of phones.

    I used my iphone while in Tokyo, shooting with my Hasselblad, was noon and sunny and very hard and contrasty light.

    End result was a lot of photos with contrasty light, but not one frame wasted due to fubar exposure.
    Normally I use it to get an average exposure for a scene, or to check the stop-difference between the sky and ie. water (the meter shows EI-numbers as well, so calculating the difference in stops is a breeze).

    I'm still struggling to understand my Minolta Spotmeter F, as I'm having issues trying to calculate the frigging aperture 2.5 stops faster than f13 for example. (how do you do that quickly anyway?)

    Please ignore if it's considered hijacking the thread: do they make an app (for Android) that will show the effect of different filters in B&W photography? I'm just getting back into b&w and have always had a hard time visualizing the results from filters.
