How to view Shutter count of Nikon, Canon or Sony Digital camera on your iPhone or iPad?

What is shutter count?

Shutter count is number of times camera’s shutter has been fired or actuated. The camera keeps on recording this number every time shutter actuates when you press the shutter button. It indicates how much camera has been used. Shutter life expectancy :- generally shutter count is rated from 50,000 to 4,00,000. After which shutter might be mechanically wear off and needs to get serviced. This wouldn’t be an issue for Digital camera’s using Electronic shutter. Electronic shutter works by turning on/off Camera’s image sensor to control exposure.

Some cameras does store shutter count inside its internal memory but doesn’t include them in EXIF Metadata recorded in photos shot on it.

Why we are ditching hamburger Menu? EXIF Viewer by Fluntro version 3.0

In version 3.0, We are ditching hamburger menu and going to use Tab-bar. Hamburger menu is one of controversial topic in UI/UX Flow.

In our case, During user testing we discovered only 35 percent users are only discovering hamburger menu, without which 90% functionality of our app can’t be discovered :-/ . Also user will have to leave context of a screen in order to access settings from hamburger menu. Which is one of worst nightmare for our users

TabBar is best replacement UI we were able to think of. Here is how new UI Looks like with Tab bar at bottom
