Developer's Description

Simplify lighting orders with TechScout Touch!

TechScout Touch is designed for lighting professionals in the Movie, TV, Commercial, and Video production industry. The app helps you create lighting rental orders intended to be submitted to rental houses or to studio set lighting departments. Featuring a simple interface, you can easily include job, date and production information. Adding equipment is a simple process using the over 1000 lighting equipment items separated into categories and sorted by type and wattage. The end result is a professional, organized equipment list ready to be emailed to anyone.

Notable features:

* Over 1000 professional lighting products included
* No typing of equipment names, just tap quantity.
* Email orders to your Producer, DP, Gaffer, BestBoy, Rental House, and even yourself.
* Refer back to an old order for reference.
* Customizable gear lists
* Add optional notes

LiteGear customer and Gaffer of the hit TV show “Bones”, Erik Messerschmidt, says “Techscout Touch has become an essential part of my toolbox. It’s ease of use makes it a valuable resource for everything from commercials to feature films.”

A quick how-to:

Begin by entering some job related info, then view over 1000 included items that are categorized in sections. To the left of each item is a “+”. Tapping this button increases the quantity of that item on your order. As you tap, the “+” button displays your desired quantity. Item quantity can be reduced by tapping the “-” button located just to the right of the item. Continue through as many or as few categories as needed, then you are ready to preview the order. Only the items you selected will be visible in the email and you can refer back to the order to edit anytime.

This app is currently FREE. To help keep it that way we reserve the right to do modest, LiteGear related advertising featuring relevant lighting products only.

Your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Please contact us directly with thoughts, concerns, or thanks.

LiteGear’s TechScout Touch is from the creators of desktop software, OnSet Office. Now discontinued, OnSet Office had nearly 1000 licensed users worldwide, and is still beloved by some of our industry leaders. TechScout Touch now steps in to help you guys create lighting orders on the fly and in real time.

"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."
"[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 youā€™ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
