This post is about Camera+, but I need to start by talking about the WordPress app.
It seems that every time I turn my iPhone on apps want to update to “ready for iOS 7”. This has to be a good thing – unless they make a mistake see here. The look and feel of the new WordPress app is good, but some mistakes have crept in, I have found a missing button and as I am writing this post, add a link does not display well in horizontal mode. As I write most of my blog, on my iPhone with this app I hope they fix it soon.
The developers of Camera+ have also released an update – ready for the updated iOS – plus adding some great new features.
I used to use Camera+ as my main iPhone camera but a couple of updates back (when I had my iPhone 4) it really slowed down, so I stopped using it and switched to the iPhone camera app, which improved greatly when I later switched to an iPhone 5.
I still used the image editor, Light Box, included with Camera+. I particularly like the Clarify function and the Golden Section crop option.
The new Camera+ offers a couple of new options I want in a camera app.
Quick access to a square format image. I often crop my photos to a square, I like the influence a square frame has on my images. Now I can see the effect, in the camera, as I take the photograph.

The second feature I like is the exposure compensation control. I can now add and take away the exposure in 1/3 stops, just like I could on my real cameras. The results of this manipulation can be seen on the screen before the photo is taken.

I am looking forward to using this updated Camera+ app and it looks like it will go back to being my “go to” camera app.
