Camera+ by tap tap tap is back in the App Store now following a 4-month hiatus after the developer revealed a hidden feature that was previously rejected by Apple.
In August, Apple had rejected a version of Camera+ that included VolumeSnap, a feature that allowed the use of the iPhone’s volume buttons to trigger the camera’s shutter. tap tap tap had re-submitted the app without the feature but then made public a way to enable VolumneSnap by entering a special URL in mobile Safari, prompting Apple to remove it from the App Store for violating its developer guidelines.
It was just yesterday that tap tap tap had mentioned in its blog that Camera+ would be returning to the App Store and the app made its second debut there yesterday evening. Over 50 changes have been made in version 2.0. Most notably, the interface has been redesigned to make it easier to use from the start and multiple new effects, scene modes and borders have been added. It’s also possible to purchase effects packs within the app.
Camera+ is one of our favorite camera apps for the iPhone and while we miss the VolumeSnap feature, the number of new features in the latest version more than makes up for that. If it included a video capture mode, it would completely replace the stock Camera app on our iPhones.
Camera+ is currently on sale for $.99 down from its regular price of $1.99, so now is the time to buy it if you’re into taking photos with your iPhone even a little.
