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.
