For specific usage questions check out the User GuideI cannot locate or install the app
The app may not be available for your handset. Please check the system requirements below.What phones and devices does it work on?
The Apple version has a minimum system requirement of Apple iOS 4.3 or higher. It works on all iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads. Please note that the display does not scale to the larger format available on the iPad.
The Android version requires Android 2.2 or higher. The app is not compatible with certain handsets where the screen size is very small or the unit has non-standard components. Some compatible smaller screen sizes may require scrolling to access all features.
The Nokia version requires Symbianˆ3 or higher and is only compatible with specific handsets. Please make sure to enter your handset details into the Nokia Ovi Store before purchasing to ensure that you have a compatible unit. Please note that this version of the app is not being kept updated as the operating system has been deprecated by Nokia.Are there versions for any other platforms?
There are some older free text-only versions of the chart available for J2ME and Palm OS here. These are all deprecated and no longer up-to-date or supported by us.I have switched from using an iPhone to using an Android phone (or vice versa). Can I transfer my app to my new device?
Although the app has the same name and we have tried to make each version as similar as possible, they are two completely separate and discreet products so it is not possible to transfer the app between platforms.I bought this app for my iPhone before, but cannot update it
If you purchased the app prior to version 1.6 (Nov 2010), it can no longer be updated. Although we licensed the use of our name and data for these earlier versions of the app, it was not owned by us. We acquired full rights to the app in late 2010 after approval of the transfer from Apple. Unfortunately, Apple did not support the migration of existing users or data at that time. All versions 1.6 and higher are owned by Digitaltruth Photo Ltd and we guarantee free lifetime updates.Why should I buy this?
The Massive Dev Chart App integrates film development data from the online version of the chart with an advanced multi-step timer. How do you currently time your processing? Maybe you use a watch, or a mechanical or electronic timer? Each of these items costs more than the App. In fact, the Massive Dev Chart App is probably the most accurate and customizable timer ever made for film development. Each phase of development can be separately programmed to provide perfect accuracy, reminding you when to agitate or empty the tank. There really isn't anything else on the market like it. Advanced electronic timers can cost hundreds of dollars, so this really is the ultimate tool for film processing at an incredible low price.I cannot figure out how to use the app
