Daily App Giveaway

Our Daily App Giveaway – Movie*Slate – Worth $24.99/£17.49

Welcome once again to our Daily App Giveaway section of theappwhisperer.  We value our readers so much we want to share our love of apps with you. That’s why we have created this new section as each day we will be giving away free apps.

Today we have Movie*Slate apps to giveaway, currently worth $24.99/£17.49. This professional film and video production tool is the easy way to log footage and take notes as you shoot— saving you valuable time later when capturing/editing, and creating reports. All at a mere fraction of a bulky digital clapperboard’s cost.

This app really is amazing, it was featured in Apple’s iPad TV ads and as many have said in the past, ‘Movie*Slate is the Rolls Royce of slates’, we would definitely agree with that.

You can read more about this app below but would you like to try this app for free and find out why we like it so much? If so, like us on Facebook (see bottom of page), join our ever expanding Twitter followers, RETWEET THIS POST and send a reply to the bottom of this page telling us what you love most about theappwhisperer.com. We will select winners at random and send the promo codes directly to your email box.

Timecode Sync Plugin

  • Send/Receive LTC timecode via iOS device’s headphone jack

  • Try before you buy— from MovieSlate’s Settings > Timecode Syncing
  • WiFi syncs timecode with other MovieSlates (iOS devices)

Camera Optics



Save camera meta-data to MovieSlate’s history log— right along with all of a shot’s production info. Reshoots can be a pain when you don’t know how the camera was set at the original shoot. MovieSlate makes it easy to save everything from aperture, ISO, and shutter speed to digital camera filenames. MovieSlate’s optimized keypad and snippets make it easy to enter your data quickly. For instance, when keypad-editing the Aperture field, the plus & minus buttons increment or decrement in one-third and one-half ƒ-stops.

All Camera Optics meta-data is saved with each shot to MovieSlate’s shot log History, so you can archive it, and find it later.

You can even capture camera meta-data visually for quick reference by post production. Just include Camera Optics fields in MovieSlate’s leader/end credit roll animations (which appear when photographing the slate at the start and end of a shot).

Shot Notes



Shot Notes can help you later import just the footage you need. For instance, when shooting interviews you can create notes to document when a particular question was asked, or when something remarkable was said. Each note’s timecode stamp can help you poinpoint exactly which content to import.

Make continuity notes to keep track of everything from actor wardrobe, shot composition, and camera movement to weather conditions. These kind of notes can really help on reshoot days.

Notes appear in MovieSlate reports. Final Cut 7 imports MovieSlate notes as markers that appear right in the timeline and/or clip. Similarly, Avid Media Composer imports MovieSlate notes as “Locators”.

    theappwhisperer.com is simply one of the sites I visited most often.i love to spend time here because it was founded by a professional photographer and many of reviewed apps were tested by the photographer herselves-not the guys from some other sites who only watched the itunes store previews and write down useless articles.

    Whether win or not,I should thanks theappwhisperer.com for their hard works.
