Camera+ spends much of its time at the top of the Photo & Video app charts and deservedly so. I think overall, it’s an outstanding all-in-one camera app. It does a whole lot excellently and the rest it does very well.

Camera+ gets a lot more outstanding tomorrow when the version 4 update is released. We’ve got a preview tonight. Keep reading to find out some of the great new features.

Rather than just do a basic update to the app for iOS 7 compatibility, this latest version of Camera+ is a thorough update of the app.

But it’s motivated the whole team unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. And this isn’t some PR mumbo-jumbo… we’re all really pumped-up about essentially redoing most of Camera+. Every single pixel in the app has been reworked in some way or another. And we’re taking advantage of several new features in iOS 7, along with rethinking about how several areas of the app work. It’ll fit very well into iOS 7, but still feel and work like Camera+.”

Among my faves of the new features of the update are exposure compensation. It’s really just in-app software magic, but it can really help to preserve the luminosity of a lot of pixels in an image in many cases. Also, the new flash Torch mode is always handy for more than just lighting video and snapshots. The new square format shooting mode not only captures Instagram-friendly images, but the matte bars in the viewfinder expand for an accurate viewfinder. You shoot what you see. The new Dropbox integration is awesome for helping clear space on your iPhone without losing any images.

It’s another exciting update. For the sake of time, I’ll just copy and paste the press release I received this afternoon. I’m off to play with a preview copy of the app.

Introducing Camera+ 4!

We’ve overhauled the entire Camera+ design and given it a brand new look for the iOS 7 launch.

And we’ve also added a bunch of new and useful things…

Shooting improvements:

• New Exposure Compensation: Adjust exposure before taking photos. Increase or decrease exposure for overly dark or bright lighting situations while in shooting mode to make sure your photos are perfectly lit.

• Shoot with the popular square crop format in the viewfinder without any extra editing steps.

Sharing improvements:

• Send your photos to Instagram, Dropbox, and Evernote.

• Wirelessly send your photos to your AirPrint printer.

This will be a free update to all Camera+ for iPhone users.

Camera+ is $1.99 in the App Store. Compatibility: Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

    Thanks for the great article.

    I really like Camera+, but 4 doesn’t appear to be much of an upgrade (other than the 4 bullet points in the press release, features I personally won’t use) and the updated iOS 7-style UI (with a few lingering textures). I’m sure a lot of work went into redoing the UI, but I’m glad it’s not a paid upgrade in this case.

    The only feature I wish they would add is video recording (in order for me to replace the stock Camera.app). Maybe this would make Camera+ feel heavy so they haven’t added it over the years.
