Press for "Apps for Cinema Artists"

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
FILMCAST • 6/2013
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes • 8/2010
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes • 3/2010
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
Josh Mandel ‏@JMMandel • 7/2012
Great list of apps for cinematographers, directors and any A.D.'s
Mystery Directrix ‏@MysteryDirectrx • 3/2015
Just stumbled on this great list of useful apps for filmmakers
Indieground Films ‏@indiegroundfilm • 4/2014

Also linked by users on movie-college.de, planet5d.com, dvxuser.com, cnet.com, fcpug.ru, adobe.com, and a lot of people on Twitter!
