Kodak Alaris is bringing its Kodak Professional Film app to Android users as well as iPads in a new update released today.

Kodak’s Professional Film App is kind of like a massive FAQ for the film curious, helping shooters choose the right film for a given situation and locating retailers to buy film or film developing within a 200 mile radius of your location. It also explains various film formats and includes tools like a sun calculator so you can pinpoint golden hours around the world.

For the DIY/chemistry-loving types, the app also offers home darkroom tips.

The app is available free now for iOS and Android platforms.

The app is no mere nostalgia play. According to Kodak, sales of color negative and black-and-white film grew 5 percent worldwide between 2013 and 2015.
