If you’re an iPhone shutterbug, you’ve probably discovered Camera+, one of the more compelling third-party camera apps on the App Store. The popular app just got a bump to version 3.0, improving upon image sharing, photo library import and just about everything else.
tap tap tap has announced the availability of Camera+ 3.0, the latest edition of the company’s third-party camera app which hit the App Store today. So what’s changed? Almost everything, beginning with a “shiny, new icon” that will be the first thing you see prior to opening the app.
Camera+ 3.0 now allows users to share to multiple services at once, or “even multiple accounts on the same service, all at the same time.” The app now does this faster than ever, promising improved performance across other parts of the app as well. Users can also import multiple photos from a photo library all at once, with “several fine touches to the import panel,” including large thumbnails, zooming and photo info.
Workflows are also new to 3.0, allowing users to snap a bunch of pics and then worry about editing and/or sharing them, or vice versa. Focus and exposure can now be locked independently of one another for maximum creativity, and the improved Lightbox user interface promises to make it even more usable.
APIs are also on deck, allowing developers of other apps to tap into Camera+ 3.0. WordPress, Tweetbot, Twitterrific, Foodspotting and Twitterlator Neue have already integrated into Camera+ 3.0, and app developers can visit the tap tap tap website to find out how to integrate their own.
There are plenty of other minor improvements to Camera+ 3.0, including the ability to create a web link, Clarity received a tune-up, the status bar now appears in Lightbox and last but not least, users can opt-in to updates, news and contents via push notifications, right from inside the app.
The 20.8MB Camera+ 3.0 is now available from the App Store and it’s on sale for a mere 99 cents at this writing -- as always, upgrades for existing users are free and the app is compatible with all devices running iOS 4.0 or later (but sadly, is not universal yet, which would have been nice for that Retina Display iPad coming on Friday!).
