Just the two tools I need Field of View (FOV) and Depth of Field (DOF) are the two tools that I use most often. I shoot with a manual focus lens and I shoot panos in portrait mode. The FOV tool will tell you how many shots to take in a pano and how much to overlap them to obtain a desired FOV in either landscape or portrait mode. For example, my widest angle lens is 20mm and I shoot with a (full frame) Nikon D610. Accurate focusing with a wide angle lens is not particularly critical (forgot to focus? No problem!), so if you memorize a couple of hyperfocal distances you can live without a DOF calculator, at least with wide angle lenses. Since I shoot interiors, I need to get in some of the floor and ceiling, so I shoot in portrait mode. But Photo Tools tells me that portrait mode only gets me a 62 degree horizontal FOV in portrait mode. I typically need 90 degrees. If I enter 90 degrees, Photo Tools tells me I need to take two shots with a 28-degree step, giving a 55% overlap. Does a working photographer actually need an FOV calculator to tell me them what they already know from experience? Probably not. But it makes for great conversation!

Useful, but only for Nikon D700 users I've got a Samsung Galaxy S3 running 4.3, and couldn't change the camera body. It would let me go through the steps of selecting a different camera, but the end result was always the Nikon D 700, no matter what manufacturer or body I selected.

Subject Distance needs to be in FEET, not INCHES Easy to use app, great interface. However, the Subject Distance entry needs an option to entry distance in feet instead of inches. Kinda hard to convert longer distances to feet in your head sometimes, making the app useless for anything but macro work. Can you quickly convert 27 feet to inches in your head? I think not.
