Aoi Advertising Promotion, a large Tokyo-based TV commercial production company, has recently launched an initiative to bring their knowledge of film production to crews everywhere in the form of iPhone apps. The first of these apps, Director’s Finder and Frame Watch, are now available on the App Store in their original Japanese-language forms.
Director’s Finder allows location scouts to turn their iPhones into virtual cameras capable of simulating various kinds of film stock and lens focal points. This includes the ability the mimic over 50 real-world cameras by Arri, Sony, Canon, Panasonic, RED, Weisscam and more as well as standard film formats like 16mm and 35mm. The captured footage can then be shared via email along with GPS coordinates and other relevant data.
Frame Watch’s price is $2.99 compared to Director’s Finder’s current sale price of $7.99 ($15.99 normally and also available in a lite version) and its feature set is appropriately less robust. Basically it is a stopwatch with a calculator built-in that allows directors to easily determine frame rates. There are presets for 24, 30, and 60 frames per second.
Stay tuned for more info on Aoi’s upcoming film apps.

Back when barcode reading software was new to the iOS, there were tons of different pieces of software vying for the attention of the iOS consumer base. These tools did the heavy lifting for the price-conscious shopper. Though these apps were great, those that wanted to use barcode information for purposes other than shopping didn’t have quite so many options.
Lets just say that you had a piece of software on your PC that managed the inventory of a warehouse you maintained. Previously you would have to buy expensive external scanners to record the barcodes of items coming in and out. However, if you combined your existing PC applications with the toolset of the application iCody it would be simple for your iPhone to record a barcode and wirelessly beam the data to your computer. Don’t fret if you are using Linux or Mac operating systems either, because it is cross-platform compatible.
If you are still unsure about what all the hype is about, check out this informational clip about the tool. It may very well change the way you do business.
Consistently popular instant messaging app IM+ Pro has just had a new feature added in the latest update. It sounds like a great way of bridging the gap between virtual and ‘real life’ social networking too.
The Neighbors feature enables users to find people locally who have similar interests by locating them on the IM+ map. Besides being able to locate your friends on the map at any time (with appropriate privacy settings on offer), you can also get to know new people through the app.
Through the interface, you can post local announcements such as offering goods or services for sale locally as well as see other sellers and their products.
It’s a pretty neat idea so it’ll be interesting to see how it works out on a worldwide scale.
The update is available now for all IM+ Pro owners. For those interested in buying the app for the first time, it’s an universal app and available for $7.99
Billed as "the first font editor exclusive for iPad," 2TTF's handy little app does as advertised: it lets you easily make a font from your own handwriting. It's a bit limited in its usefulness, it's still cheaper than similar online services.
