    Hi All,

    I just released my latest app on the App Store, Olympus Lens Buddy:
    Olympus Lens Buddy app - Over 55 Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds Mount lenses for Olympus cameras

    It is mostly a sub-set of my original Mirrorless Lenses app which I launched on this forum but targeted for Olympus system users. I think a lot of Olympus users aren't finding my app which is why I made it. It has fewer lenses compared to the Nikon and Canon apps I have on the App Store so I priced it at $1.

    UPDATE CLOSED: I wanted to offer the forum community 10 free copies of my app with a promo code. The first 10 users to PM me will get a copy. --> UPDATE CLOSED: Thanks for the response, I have enough responses and I am going through the rest now. Thanks

    Thanks,
    Julian

    Hi all, I have 4 codes left. It's on a first come first serve basis :)

    I will be going to bed now and I will check back in a few hours. Apologies for those who miss out. :)

    Actually, for the next 4 people who PM me, please mention it in this thread too so others will know that I'm out of codes.

    Thanks!

    Rip off, it's £1.49 in the UK store :wink: I'm downloading as I type, always happy to try and contribute to a member on the site who's put in some hard work :smile:

    EDIT: Not sure if it's something possible to do, but is it possible to have it pull prices from different countries?

    ie. It shows prices for Amazon.com, for obvious reasons. But as a UK user, could it perhaps show the price from Amazon.co.uk or similar?

    +1 on this.
    It seems to have all lenses from major manifacturers, but the SRLmagic "toy" lenses :)43: natives) are absent from the list. I think obscure lenses would be a useful addition.

    I won't own any Apple products - would love to see more apps like this made available for Android users. With the release of ICS my Motorola Xoom is more functional than the IPad and so are the Thrive, Galaxy Tab and many others. :biggrin:

    I've bought it. At £1.49 it's well worth paying out. Nice app!

    Free lensBuddy Promo Code

    I got one of the 10 free codes, but then ended up purchasing the app anyway, so here is a free promo code for someone to use:

    (per Julian's instruction)
    Cheers,
    Joerg

    Hi Alf, thanks for the feedback.

    I will look to add the SLRmagic lenses in a future update.

    As a Panasonic GH2 shooter I will not get an app on my ipod that is made for Olympus cameras. :tongue:

    All kidding aside I don't see any use for an app that is basically a listing of lenses with 4/3 or m4/3 mount with reviews of happy users.

    I also have "Mirrorless Lenses" but I think it is not finding the potential audience which is why I created this version. "Olympus Lens Buddy" also has Four Thirds lenses so I can't name it "M4/3".

    I am thinking of making a "Panasonic Lens Buddy" version as well, but I will see how this one goes but truthfully, it will essentially be the same thing as "Olympus Lens Buddy".
