Turn your phone into a picture-taking beast

Shoot like a professional using only your cell phone's or tablet's camera. The dream of being a National Geographic journalist just got a bit easier.

The vanilla camera app on the iPhone and iPad does a decent job at capturing those special moments but sometime the occasion may calls for more. With Camera+ you can turn that little camera into something that will give most dedicated point-and-shoot a run for their money.

Packed with a ton of features, Camera+ will bring that dinky phone/tablet camera to the next level. With burst mode those fast-paced sports shots are now within your reach. Timer function will set free you from another self-portrait with the lower quality front-facing cam. Finally, the featured Stabilizer mode is available for all the trembling hands photographers out there. Camera+ also includes a photo-editor for a little post processing of your creations. Although it doesn't offer complete freedom in editing, the presets does a decent job at mimicking a regular camera's settings such as; adjusting for Clarity, Flash, Cloudy, Shade, Fluorescent lighting, Night shots, Scenery and so on...

Once you've made the switch to Camera+, it will be hard to return to the stock app. Except perhaps for doing HDR shots, as that is the one aspect it doesn't handle well. Another minor complaint is that after the shots are taken, they need to be saved in order to appear in your device's album folder. You can, however, set the app to automate this process. That being said, the price-to-features ratio of Camera+ makes it one of the must have app whether you're into serious phone photography (phonography?) or just like taking pictures.
