Camera+ has been one of the leading camera apps on the iPhone for a long while – and now it has come to the iPad. Camera+ for iPad was released in the iPad App Store yesterday and my friend and writing colleague Thomas Wong described it as a supremely big deal. He sent me a rapid-fire series of texts yesterday afternoon outlining one of its best features, which is its iCloud sync between its iPhone and iPad apps
Shoot on iPhone, edit on iPad. Workflow very easy and simple. Changes show up on both devices. iPad version has more editing power too. It’s like iPhoto for iOS, but much easier to use.
Here are some of the key, iPad-only, features of Camera+ for iPad:
★ NEW iCloud sync…
The new iCloud sync in Camera+ automatically syncs your Lightbox photos between all of your devices. Shoot all day on your iPhone, and then edit all night on your iPad.
★ Brush on effects… iPad ONLY
Now you can brush on (or off) each effect with your finger so you apply it only where you want. You can set the brush size, softness and intensity for ultimate control.
★ Layer effects… iPad ONLY
Layer two or more effects to create your own unique results. Adjust the intensity of each layer and drag and drop to change the order. Why not mix “So Emo” with “Tailfins”? You have great taste, now prove it!
★ Straighten your photos… iPad ONLY
Camera+ has gridlines to help line up your shots, but you still get the occasional crooked one. Now you can crop and straighten with Camera+ for iPad and eliminate wonky photos once and for all.
★ Advanced image adjustments… iPad ONLY
Perfect your images with advanced image adjustments, including white balance, exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness and red eye removal.
I took a quick look at the app this morning and I’m impressed. It is very easy and fun to use and has a good range of editing tools and effects to apply to images. It’s a definite keeper for me, one to add to the ever-growing list of excellent photography apps for the iPad.
Here’s an App Store link for Camera+ for iPad; it’s currently priced at $0.99 - but that is listed as a sale price to mark the launch of this iPad version.
