I can't even begin tell you the number of times that I have seen the credits roll for a film and seen someone credited as a producer, then silently ask myself, "What the HELL does a producer actually do?"  After doing a little research, the results are mixed depending on the person that is asked, but pretty much the consensus is that producers on a film can be in charge of doing damn near ANYTHING.

With responsibilities that can range from managing the talent in front of the camera to keeping track of every member of the support crew behind the scenes, it is a miracle that more deaths do not occur during film production, just due to spontaneous head explosions.  Thank goodness that someone at True Hero Studio saw fit to create the new app Producer, the one stop shop for everything that these designated organizers could ever need keep track of in their cluttered minds.  Here is everything that the software claims to be able to handle:

You have a lot on your plate, casting, scouting, the budget; shoot lists and all your crew. You have emails going back and forth, you have un-confirmed crew and by the way what is the production schedule? Do you even have the right talent cast? Perhaps you do, but Is this information is all over your laptop. Why?

Keep it simple; be on top of it all.

At the very least, this seems like one of the most deep and flexible applications on the platform.  Anything that a professional filmmaker could ever need would be at their disposal, without the need for the excess baggage associated with PCs.

Plus, on top of everything else, for only twelve dollars, it is priced to fit the budget of Joe Schmoe indie director, while delivering features that would appeal to the Hollywood heavy hitters.  If you are looking to organize any film larger than a family movie, this should be a must own.
