Lumu Light Meter is my favorite one:

Simple, easy to read and very accurate.

Lumu is the one I’ve been using as well. Easy to read and as accurate as any of the others. None of them are perfect, so just try a few and choose the one you like best. I also have MyLightMeter and Lux, but haven’t used them ina while.

Yes it is a good app.
I use it since it was still free. However it is not at the moment about ten bucks I think.

I have that app, actually paid money for it (!) and found that it is not reliable.
Occasionally it gives a completely bonkers reading.
Then again, if you recognize this and ignore it, then it is ok to use.

I have used multiple apps.

Pocket light meter is the one I use now, but they are all very similar and all work well.

I use 'Pocket Light Meter' and it works a treat. It's free, but you have the option to 'buy the developer a pint', so I did.

I am under 18 so I could not buy him a pint I use the option 'ads remover' instead! btw Pocket Light Meter is a reliable app and in many cases make my light meter stay in the pocket.
