Camera+ for iPhone updated for iOS 6 and iPhone 5, Camera+ for iPad now available

Camera+, the very popular photography app by tap tap tap, has been updated to support iOS 6 and the iPhone 5's larger display. You can now see more photos in your lightbox and have a larger editing preview area when working with your photos. In addition to the changes made to Camera+ for iPhone, tap tap tap has also released an iPad version of Camera+ into the App Store and with iCloud sync, you can keep your lightbox photos synced between all your devices -- as you take photos with your iPhone, they will automatically pop up on your iPad.

In addition to all the great features that come with Camera+ on the iPhone, the iPad version also includes the ability to brush on effects, layer two or more effects to your photos, straighten your photos while cropping, and other advanced adjustments including white balance, exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation sharpness, and red eye removal.

Now, I'm not one to take photos with my iPad, so I admit that I wasn't exactly excited to hear that Camera+ was available on the iPad because I didn't think I'd get much use out of it. However, with the ability to keep my lightboxes in sync between the iPhone and iPad and all the new capabilities included with the iPad version, I understand the hype. On the other hand, I can't help but ask why the ability to layer and brush on effects and all the other iPad-exclusive features were never, and still aren't, available on the iPhone version of Camera+.

Regardless, editing photos is always a much more pleasant experience on the iPad than on the iPhone, and for just a buck, Camera+ for iPad is a great choice -- especially if you're already a Camera+ for iPhone user.

Camera+ for iPhone updated for iOS 6 and iPhone 5, Camera+ for iPad now available


Really exciting news, can't wait to try the iCloud syncing and iPad version!

I wonder if the layers/brushes are in the works for the iPhone version?

I have had Camera+ on my various iPhones since it came out, glad to see it arrive on the iPad (although I don't take pictures with my iPad), I just wish they had gone the extra step of making the App universal instead of charging another $.99 for the app. Its not about the money its about efficiency and simplicity.

How can you complain about $0.99 for a year's worth of work? It's a total redesign for iPad. It's too bad the App Store is a race to the bottom for prices, developers should get paid what they deserve.
