Camera Genius [rating: 4.5/5]
The camera app is nothing short of basic, it takes pictures, it takes movies but other than that you are limited with what you can do. That’s where Camera Genius comes in as it takes the basic functions of the iPhone’s camera and adds some of the bells and whistles that can help take you photography and movie making to another level.
A couple of the key features that leaped off the app for me were the timer and burst mode which as you would expect enable you to take a timed photograph or will take 3 pictures in quick succession for those times when the action is quicker than your finger!
It’s these “additional” features that make Camera Genius so easy to use and yet the standard features such as zoom, flash on/off and switching between front and back cameras are still right there on the screen so while you gain features you don’t lose any.
These extra features are all accessible at the bottom of the screen via a pop-up menu so can be easily accessed and hidden while taken pictures. There are also a plethora of settings for you to toggle on and off such as showing the time and location on the picture and sharing options which include Facebook, Picasa, Twitpic, Twitvid and Youtube built into the application.
If you want to take even better pictures there is also a decent sized manual with suggestions on how to take better pictures and ways to be inspired to take new pictures.
The app is currently on sale at just $0.99 and it’s a great addition to any iPhone to help you make the most out of your iPhone’s camera.
