Camera+ comes to iPad with new features

 

Camera+, the super popular photo-editing app for iPhone is now available for iPad. The app isn't universal, which means you will have to buy the app again, even if you have the iPhone version, however it is priced at just $0.99 for a limited time, so it shouldn't hurt your pockets too much. The iPad version includes everything you will be used to on the iPhone, including filters, cropping, borders, and touch-up tools. New features include a burst mode, a camera stabilization tool, iCloud syncing between devices and enhanced effects and features.

Speaking on the release of the iPad version, developer tap tap tap said,

...there’s always been an empty iPad-shaped hole in our hearts.On behalf of the team I’m thrilled to introduce Camera+ for iPad.We’ve taken parts of Camera+ for iPhone, and completely reimagined, redesigned, and rebuilt others. We’ve created what we believe is the most intuitive, powerful, and beautiful editing experience on the iPad. We thought about everything that makes Camera+ great, and what we would change to have it shine on the iPad. We could have simply enlarged the existing editing interface, but people use their iPads differently. Camera+ on the iPhone is about getting great results, as quickly as possible.

Camera+ has sold over 9 million copies since release and became the #1 paid non-game app of the year in 2011, tap tap tap is likely to push the success even further with the iPad version.

It supports importing from your photo stream, camera roll, and actually even social networks. So with the Camera Connection Kit, you can for example use this app to post-process photos taken with a point & shoot or DSLR. Or whatever else. Stuff downloaded from the web, for example.

If you like Camera+, that's a much more convenient workflow than on a small (tall?) iPhone at least. It could be especially useful if you wish to go even more mobile than with a laptop, bringing just an iPad and a camera with you. With an iPad 3G, that's good enough to post-process & share from the field, and the display size good enough to review and show your photos.

thanks for your reply. I think this could help with my shoots then. Can cull right there from the ipad/ camera.

The app is nice and please, for .99 cents, you can't beat it. Developers have to eat too so no whinning about the price. They need tomake money too.

I always snicker when i see people holding up tablets to take pictures.

maybe it's just me.....

hey, someday your smartphone will be that big!

but yeah, its funny, considering a lot of those people who just a couple years ago laughted at people like me who use high quality DSLR's because "they are too big" when they have their little pocket camera with crappy picture quality and lenses... now they have this huge iPad and somehow its not to big

Well I think their point is they don't carry around the iPad for taking pictures, but when they have to snap one "the best camera is the one that's with you".

But I agree, I'm a DSLR user myself and apart from snapshots, no way in hell I'm leaving my 60D at home when I want serious shots done.

Yeah. However, I consider this primarily aimed for post-processing and sharing. Think Snapseed competitor. It can actually even import photos from social networks, which is rather unique among these kind of apps, and puts further emphasis on this kind of usage.

This post has been here for oven an hour, and we don't see the usual people whining about Neowin being used to advertise store apps. Wonder why? Oh, I know...

Hmm, what a genius way to get another easy $9 million.

I'm sure there was noooo way they could have made your previous purchase count for the iPad version. Or just update the app to work on both platforms.

They sold 9 million copies not made $9 million. They had to work to create the iPad version so I don't see the big deal in paying $0.99

Let's assume they sold 9 million copies at the 'sale price' of 0.99 that's $8,910,000. Since there's no real material cost involved, just man hours I'm sure they raked in a pretty penny. And that's at 9 million - they sold more than that and at a higher price.

Many developers and companies completely revamp apps or do major updates that require just as much work. I'm sure Android developers had their hands full when tablets became big. They UPDATED their apps to work on them. Guess what? They didn't make you pay again.

The choice to be an universal app or not is entirely up to the developer, and only they know for themselves how well they're doing financially. And if man hours mattered little, I'm sure I'd love to see the entire Adobe CS suite be worth just $19.

Yes, let's complain some more on it being sold for $1 each as the price for a few hundred man hours. It's times like these when you think there's no hope left for software developers. At all. Oh right -- the freemium model! The final hope! The model we all love and hold dear to heart. No, then I'd rather pay up front and get all there is from the start

Oh that's right I forgot that there are hundreds of man hours involved in making an app display larger images. Secondly, your incompetence is showing, might want to cover it back up. This isn't about the 0.99 price. It's about the fact that you have to repurchase the app again at all. That's like getting a larger monitor for your desktop and having to buy Photoshop again because you went from a 15" 1024*768 to a 20" 1440*900 monitor.

It's not the "freemium" model as you so retardequently put it. It just doing what every other developer with a shred of common sense does. This is a money grab, that's it. It's the standard Apple/American business model. Sure, businesses are there to make money but they don't have to be so petty about it.

Buy? Hmm, don't remember paying for it, guess I got it on one of those free for a limited time deals
