Who doesn't want to make life easier? We all know that shooting can be a pain and there's a lot of stuff that you need to keep in mind in order to avoid chaos. But now we have the iPad (and the iPhone) that can be useful in many situations and help us get the job done. Here's an app that seems to be a must-have on the set. It is called "Shot Lister" and you can use it... you guessed it... - to list your shots! In other words it allows you to keep track of your progress and stick to your plan.
The app has some small flaws - you cannot create call lists and you cannot log takes within shots, but future updates will surely bring more features and solve this minor issues. Also make sure to watch the tutorial below:
