There have been situations recently where an incident meter would have been most useful so I have purchased an iPhone app that purports to do the job for only 99c.
In my living now it gives me brilliant exposures in incident mode. The reflective mode shows an exposure that is identical to my D300. Not much light here, about EV3, too low for my Spot Meter to work with the zoom I have attached.
Is this too good to be true? Has anyone used this app in the field? It certainly looks and feels like a quality product. The needle takes a second or two to settle down, not as fast as my old Weston Master, but right now it is hard to see a downside for the price and the convenience of carrying it in my pocket.
More testing tomorrow when the sun comes out.

Wow, let us know how it turns out. I guess the proof is in the pudding and for such a small price, what do you have to lose? Im running out of RAM on my iPhone 4 and waiting to get the iPhone 5. I will probably download it then!
