When I posted my article listing some apps for the I-Phone I did not realise how popular the story would be. since then I have been reminded of a couple of applications that I missed. So I thought I would add a few more.
The first one to mention is one that I have been using for a little while.
iGobo (Free) – Rosco Labs
This is a rather neat gobo selection tool, that includes the complete Rosco range of gobo. A handy feature is you can rotate the gobo to see what it looks like. This is my personal favourite
