Blindkarma's Review of Easy ReleaseReviewed on 9/17/19 1:59 PM
The concept is great. The execution is poor. Poor logic and visual design. The app developer is confused about legal terms versus model management versus model traits. It has potential but is critically flawed. After reading the developer’s defensive comments on critical reviews, this is unlikely a developer I will support. The legalese used for default releases is overly burdensome. Even attorneys don’t write this way anymore. Need to consult modern and contemporary contracts and photo releases. Legal semantics evolves and changes. Here it is stuck in the 1960’s. DOB and ethnicity are rarely used and not legally required, yet are defaults. Turning them off is a pain. DOB is located under something called “release management”, tacked onto the app settings in a random category. Ethnicity is a stupid default and the wrong term. I only need it where ethnicity is relevant, but it has nothing to do with legality. If so, why not add hair color, height, weight, eye color, and number of tattoos? Create an optional note section instead, don’t try to make this a legal term or default category for a contract. The photo feature is poorly executed. It automatically requires you to take a pic of your model or you must skip, meaning you have to take time formatting the release before, during or after your shoot. I don’t have that kind of time during the shoot. Shoots run differently for different assignments. If I’m shooting 30 corporate employees it is different than 1 model all day. If I take 800 photos of a model, now I need to take her snapshot with my phone? I want them to sign, then I’ll send them the release later in the day. Let me add one of the actual photos from the shoot! But NOOO! It deleted the model’s signature. I now have no release!

This app is an integral part of my photography workflow. I'd be totally lost without it!

I have this app for a while but now each time when I’m trying to open the app I have only black screen. I reinstalled the app but this did not fix the problem.

Love the app! Use it often. Great tool! Would like to see update that would include TFP releases!

I don’t remember how much I paid for the app originally and I did purchase all the add-ons and I have to say it was and is completely worth the cost. I am an amateur photographer that love shooting people and this has made it easier to have the paperwork with me without having to carry paperwork with me. It helps to protect the models and me. The customizable features are great. I find examples all over the web and can customize them to my need depending on the subject matter. With regards to support, I have reached out once and received a reply in less than an hour. Great customer service. Finally, it should be noted that the doesn’t provide legal advice. If you want to be 100% sure, check the language of your release forms with an attorney. This app is only a tool. A great tool but should not replace legal advice. Keep up the great work.

I have been relying on this app for a long time. It now won’t load on my iPad and seems to be super buggy on my phone. Are you still developing it?

Why pay $10 for an app that deletes past releases and constantly freezes? Really disappointed.

the application edits the signatures, I do not understand why it modifies the signatures. The signatures do not remain natural or resemble what was written.

The best deal for such an affordable price. Extremely reliable and professional. Must have for all professional photographers. Wonderful customer service as well.

Up until i found this app everything I had done in the way of recording models releases was done on paper. Unfortunately more times than not I lost the paperwork. In addition to those problems I also had to keep redoing the paperwork even though I had worked with the model several times in the past. This app makes it easy to bring forward all the information for a particular model as well as make note of any particular occurrences during the shoot.
