MySetLife is the first iPhone App and the ONLY GLOBAL MOBILE NETWORK designed with everything a filmmaker, in any capacity, anywhere in the world, needs to stay on top of your demanding lifestyles! Other phone platforms are in Development.
** Please take a minute to read this before downloading the app**
MySetLife is designed to become a major part of your professional life, so it benefits you to learn about the app and what the features can do for you. Please keep in mind that MySetLife has just launched with this feature set but will continuously grow and evolve, so any issues you may have with the current app can and will be fixed or changed.
There are 2 components to MySetLife.
1. Features in the Free App
The free App comes with all the features you will need to network, communicate and exhibit all your scripts, photos, graphic art and short films, demo reels, music videos and trailers. You can also display any References or Associations you have. MySetLife has customized the best features of LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and IMDb all rolled into one app. Since this a brand new MOBILE NETWORK, you will have to invite contacts to join your network, just like you did with Facebook or LinkedIn, and when they accept you and join MSL, they will be added to your contacts list, then you can share all your talent and creations with them, and they can do the same with you. This is so that you have control over who sees your information. You also have various settings to maintain your privacy if you choose.
2. The MSL Store
The MSL Store has various tools you can buy for small one time fees that are cheap considering their powerful and CONVENIANT capabilities. We will be adding new tools to the store every couple months, and coming next are a Sun Calculator with Spot meter bundle and a Background DB reader and Tone Generator bundle.
There are 2 bundles currently for sale:
Bundle 1 is MOBILE PDF INVOICING, INDUSTRY FORMAT TIMECARDS and a RATE CALCULATOR
Bundle 2 is a TIMECODE SLATE and FOCUS CHARTS
*** These tools will also constantly be updated to ensure they provide all the usability that you need, and if you buy them now, ALL FUTURE UPDATES WILL BE FREE FOR YOU!***
IPHONE 3 USERS HAVE NOTED THAT THE SPEED OF THE APP IS QUITE SLOW AND SOMETIMES CRASHES.
MYSETLIFE is currently hosted on Amazon’s ec2 Cloud in California, so retrieval of information should be very fast. HOWEVER, due to the updated ios4 software in the iPhone 3 generation, apps are generally running slower and the phone is acting up. Also, because this App is retrieving large files (videos, scripts etc) via a mobile connection, you should give the phone some time to download the information. Should you experience a crash of any kind, restart the app, and you will see that the info you were looking for is now there. We will be working on this issue in future updates.
TIMECARDS – There is a known issue in the timecards that they do not calculate total hours worked if the card starts today, but ends tomorrow. This issue has been resolved in the next update and we will be releasing the fix in the next update.
WE WELCOME any feature suggestions or bug reports and they can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your NEW FOUND FREEDOM!

"Apps for Pro Filmmakers" is a curated database of professional filmmaking apps that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of 400 (and counting) mobile, tablet, watch, and now desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals.
"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
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"Directors Notes
"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 youâ€™ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."Directors Notes
