Camore+ (by Rivawan, not affiliated with tap tap tap) is a companion app for Camera+. It’s basically a front end and back end to the app with Camera+ in the middle. It adds features to the workflow that really should be in Camera+ in the first place.

The Polamatic 2.1 update is out. It fixes several bugs I’d mentioned in my earlier review, but adds one, very critical bug. If you purchased the app, I suggest you hold off installing this update.
