iModelKit App for the i Crowd...

I realize this isn't really new kit news or the like-- but I am finding this to be a real awesome and useful tool...sort of like a reference book alt. I know Bob just got a Droid and while I can't find any information on whether it is available there, there may be something like it worth looking for.

It is a free app-- but can be purchased if you want to avoid the ads (although I don't seem to even see them anyways!). Now on to what is included...forgive my attempted screen pics...I don't know how to capture a screen shot on the Touch or if it is even possible so I used my camera.

First off are the color charts...there are color charts of the following:

*ANA (Army-Navy Aeronautical)
*Federal Standard 595c (?)
*RAL (Reichsausschuß für Lieferbedingungen und Gütesicherung)
*Humbrol
*Tamiya
*Vallejo Model Color
*Revell
*Mr. Hobby Aqueous Hobby Color

These charts come directly from the manufacturer's website information and include color "chips".
