Very well done, minor usability quibbles
As a long-time user of DOFMaster on the Palm and recent switch to iPhone, I downloaded Simple DoF Calculator based on the high reviews. Simple DoF Calculator makes data entry fast and simple because all data entry is done on one 3-slider wheel. DOF calculations are identical between the two (as they should be). Couldn't imagine a simpler and more straightforward way to design this app. It does exactly what it should and is attractive and very easy to use. Two minor quibbles: 1) The focus (distance) and focal length (lens) choices should run in consistent geometric progressions just like real cameras. It's odd to see choices of 90, 95, 100, then 101, 102, 103, ... for focal length, and a 1 mm precision at 100 mm is not really useful and makes it harder to find the right setting. Instead, have every choice be, for example, 5% or 20% bigger than the last one depending on whether fast spin mode is selected. Similar for f/stop. 2) Even though it is likely rarely needed (maybe never), it would be nice to have the focus setting go beyond 100 feet.

A good start.
It's a nice little app that could be improved slightly. I really wish it had a camera bag function to store the lenses that you use allot and there aperture limits. Worth a dollar though, it's built better than allot of other apps.

Explain the math...
I'm no genius but shouldn't you get shallower depth of field the larger the film plane? I like the interface. But if the math is wrong what's the point. I think I may have just wasted a buck.

Outstanding
Fast and efficient apps, worked just like advertised - The last entry retention feature is also nice Wished it had a manual feet/meter overide button...

Always hit DOF head on!
Works as advertised! Invaluable DOF tool for photo noobies and enthusiasts. Since I always have my phone with me, the Simple DoF Calculator is always available.

Really good app for students
Fanastic application that is very simple to use. Simply select your camera, and put in the necessary details (lens focal length and focusing distance) and you are given your focus limits instantly! I reccomend this for students who need a bit more time understanding this type of photographic theory. It's very straight forward and a pleasure to use!
