Hello again, ladies and gentlemen! I just wanted to announce here first that we just released our latest app, TV Timecard. To keep it simple, this app is designed to give you the fastest, most reliable and least cumbersome interface to keep track of your hours while on set. It's specifically meant to NOT keep up with your rates and perform other calculations that you either don't need or don't want to do. So if you're looking for something that does everything the accounting department would do, look elsewhere. Some people do want that, but I didn't. I built this out of frustration in dealing with existing timecard apps, "Notes" and other methods of keeping track of my hours. To me, they were all very clunky and inefficient. I wasn't interested in setting up a job, title, payrate, etc. each time I started a new shoot. I just wanted the bare bones package of keeping up with my times; and possibly more importantly, writing them down on my timecard at the end of the week. So here you have an app that is super easy to enter your daily times and super easy to view your times for the entire week. It's a tap here and a tap there and you're done. I think/hope y'all will like it. I've been testing it thoroughly for the past few months and have all the bugs worked out. I've also integrated Crashlytics, which automatically generates anonymous reports on any fatal errors a user might experience to help quickly solve any issues that may arise. I've attached some screenshots for convenience, but feel free to go to the app's page here or download on your iPhone here. It's $1.99 in the App Store for iOS devices. There's also a $0.99 in-app purchase available to allow for multiple users (if an AC wants to keep track of the DPs hours). If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask. I'll be following this posting. Select which day you want to keep track of Just tap on the desired field and it will insert the current time, or if it's lunch it'll automatically advance to 6hrs after call. All are adjustable, obviously. To fill out your paper timecard, select the week you want. You'll get all of your weekly times on one screen You can also create a simple PDF to e-mail or send the times as text via e-mail or text message Preview the PDF in app View of some settings. You can also backup everything via Dropbox (more services to be added later hopefully)
I am interested in joining the local 695, and yes I've read most of the posts here concerning joining the union and is it worth it etc. What I am wondering is what kind of hours count towards unionship? I've location sound mixed several indy features and docs, but those total hours alone I don't think quite add up. In the last three years I've spent more time on doing post audio for a few features and shorts. Does post work count towards hourage. I tried calling the union and never get great responses. Tim
