Frequently Asked Questions
Is the LM-3000 a free app?
Not entirely. You can download and use the app for free within a trial period of at least 48 hours to make sure it fits your
need. The status of your free trial will be shown as the "battery level" on the top right of the LM-3000's display.
Once your light meter's "battery" is depleted, we ask you for a one-time fee of ~$8 that is valid a lifetime. You won’t be charged anything without explicit purchase.
With every purchase you support us in providing you with the best, most accurate, and ad-free light meter app in the world.
Do I need to repurchase the unlimited battery when I buy a new device or reinstall the app?
No. Just download the app normally and tap 'Restore Purchase' when the unlimited battery screen is shown.
Why can't I switch to the rear camera?
To measure illuminance, you need to measure the light that falls upon a surface. Using the rear camera, you'd measure exitance, light that gets reflected by a surface.
