Camera+ 3.0 Launches with New API for App Integration

The widely acclaimed Camera+ application, available for just US$0.99, has recently been upgraded to version 3.0. This latest version introduces several new features and an API that numerous prominent developers have already integrated to enhance their own applications with Camera+ capabilities.

Camera+ has achieved remarkable success, ranking as the 10th top-selling iPhone app ever.

It recently celebrated a milestone with the sale of its 7 millionth copy. The app not only sports a visually appealing new icon but also boasts additional functionalities that are set to further cement its status in the realm of iPhone photography:

  • A novel feature now enables users to share images to various platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr simultaneously with just a single tap.

  • An updated “shoot and share” workflow allows for immediate editing of photos right after they are captured, ideal for quick shares to social media.

  • Users can now add multiple photos from their library to the Camera+ Lightbox for editing in one go.

  • The Clarity function, which automatically enhances photos, has been refined to deliver even better results.

  • New focus and exposure locks have been introduced in Camera+ 3.0, proving to be invaluable for those using tripod setups with devices like the Glif.

Moreover, the developers behind Camera+, Tap Tap Tap, have released an API that allows other apps to incorporate Camera+’s advanced camera and “darkroom” features.

Applications such as WordPress, Tweetbot, Twitterrific, and Foodspotting have already taken advantage of this. Developers interested in integrating these features can check out the API information here.

If you haven’t updated yet, now is the perfect time to do so, or to download and experience Camera+ for yourself!
