Camera Genius is a fast, all-in-one camera app. It has an impressive toolset, including all six of my criteria for a good camera replacement app. While retaining and improving all of the original functionality that made it an early favorite for iPhoneographers, CodeGoo have recently added a ton of features over the last several updates. It’s a solid, full-featured camera replacement app. You can read more about the recent versions in my previous review.

Version 3.5 was recently released. It’s light on new features, but a good maintenance release with several bug fixes. We’ve got a few promo codes to give away. Click past the jump to find out more about the update and how you could win a promo code.

Here’s what’s new in Camera Genius, version 3.5:

  • Faster saving in photo mode.
  • Fixed a problem with GPS not updating its location correctly.
  • Several GPS Bug fixes.
  • Battery saving by turning off GPS when it goes into background mode.
  • Added the ability to turn off location from within the settings.
