Camera+, The Ultimate iPhone Photo App

Best iPhone Camera App Ever and my first App ; )

Camera+, the App that I’ve been working on for over a year, is now available in the App Store.

Woooo! *does a happy dance*

If you’ve been following my Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr stream, you’ve probably noticed a lot of iPhone shots pop up recently from my trips to New York and San Francisco. Now I can finally share the amazing app that created all those cool FXs!

I partnered with the amazing Taptaptap team including, John Casasanta, Scott Meinzer, Wolfgang Bartleme and Karl Von Randow, on Camera+ and I truly believe we built the most streamlined and extensive camera App for the iPhone.

I spent most of my time creating and tweaking all the custom Scene and FXs for the App in Photoshop. In all honesty, it was really hard coming up with 24 unique FXs.

I can’t even count the number of crazy and horrible FXs I came up with in the process, but I’m sure my colleagues can tell you that “subtlety” is not in my post-processing vocabulary. :P

*the hidden city*
Hipster (Retro FX).

We went all out on the names of the FXs, “So Emo” being my absolute favourite.

We’ve all had so much fun testing and creating the App, minus the time when we got slapped with a big rejection from Apple for trying to sneak in an illegal feature :-/

It’s been a long process and one that has renewed my passion for taking and sharing images. I am ecstatic to share this App with you! I can’t wait to see what you create with Camera+.

Download the App & show me your photos!

    Lisa,

    For sure, you’ve made nothing short of a great mobile app here! But *IS* it a mobile app or is it really an Apple app? Hear, hear the “noise” about Android – that could mean a revenue stream to you! I for one see Camera+ as the sole reason for going for an iPhone, but even though I’m something of a Mac-head I will *NOT* follow the iPhone way. If that’s the only way to camera+, I’ll continue to be without it.

    I once had an iphone and this app and loved it. I’ve long since switched and am happier with my phone than ever, save this loss. I’d be surprised to see it come to android however. Android suffers from the same thing that plagues PC’s – Hardware Options. I’m not positive this is the hold-up, but considering there are probably dozens of different types of cameras among android phones vs. the handful in iphones I could see where an app such is this would be much harder to develop without a very controlled hardware set.

    I could also be pretty far off, just speculation :) Still hoping to get it on my beloved android!!

    This is the best application ever and the only reason I regret buying an Android instead of an iphone, will this app ever be available for the Android market?

    Please Please Please make an Android app!

    I switched from iPhone to Android and I really miss this app. I’m sure it will be mega successful if it was released on the marketplace!

    I, too, vote for an Android version. Remember the recent statistics Leo Laporte keeps mentioning: over 500,000 Android devices are being activated DAILY.

    Hi there – can anyone recommend a product to use on a mac computer with the same features as camera+? It seems counterintuitive to have to load all the pictures onto my phone to edit them

    No comment on filter stacking?

    I love this app but feel that lack of stacking is a glaring oversight. Certainly, it isn’t a” feature” of simplicity??!

    Still no. 1 app though.

    Hey there.. I’ve been using this app since i got my iPhone in december, and I took so many good photos with my girlfriend. I’m going to switch to an android device, because I’m so bored by iOS, the only thing I will miss is this app, because there’s no comparable one in the android market. Will there soon be a release of camera+ for android? I hope that so much… :(

    Camera+ is an app full of awesomeness, I pretty much take and edit all the pictures which I post on to my photo blog, http://www.shotwithmyphone.com .
    I am an Iphoneographer and love the way I can bring my pictures to life using all the wonder filled wonderful effects. Keep up the great work and I cant wait to see what I can do with Camera+ on the super juicy cam iPhone 4S would sport.

    Now to make a non-Phone/iPad version!

    Love this app, use it alot with rave reviews, even professional photographers envy the results (not to mention the ease!)

    If only there was software as easy as this for PC/MAC use but not on an iPhone/iPad (screen size limiting)

    Truly awesome!
