User reviews of Lighting Handbook
Nice up but takes up a lot of phone memory. Needs the ability to be moved to an SD card.

Exellent Fantastic app, I am 15 and I was asked to do a light show at my school and this really helped me find the right manuals for the right lights and consoles, also that the dmx connectors are explained. Highly recommend it to people

Great app I love having all the manuals to all my movers in my phone. Very responsive developer...when I had a minor problem, I got an email directly from Andrew who sorted out my question quickly. Well worth the money.
