TricCam Lite is a camera app which can act as a point-and-shoot camera, and saves photos in JPEG, TIFF and RAW (DNG) formats with auto exposure feature.
It can also trigger conventional Xenon photo flash through Tric flash trigger* with manual ISO control.
More information about Tric flash trigger:

When taking a photo at low light conditions, you are not limited by iPhone LED lights anymore. For the first time, you can use speedlight or studio strobe for iPhone photography.
We added RAW (DNG) format and auto exposure options, so it can act as a point-and-shoot camera to capture raw images, when not using with Tric trigger.
* Save photo in RAW (DNG) format on supported iOS and devices

Ratings and Reviews
Works for what it “basically” does
The purpose of this app is to drive the device that fires your external flash system, be it dedicated DSLR speed lites, or studio strobes. It has a few hiccups in it’s operational smoothness such as reviewing recent captured image in preview, and lacks a timer feature Incase you are doing delicate shots and don’t want to bump the camera during exposure or that you want to be in the image you are taking. But if you are considering an item such as this, then likely you have determined that you LIKE capturing images with your iPhone and WISH for better LIGHT availability and some control. This setup GIVES you THAT specifically. I’m not here to discuss the merits of using a phone for photos, I’ll debate that outside of this review! But if you want to apply more light to your iPhone camera subject, this will do that for you.
I am currently deriving 65% of my income from professional photography and SOME of the images I capture — for a fee — are captured with an iPhone! Period, end of discussion. Thanks for reading!
I thought this was a app that would use a A signal coming from the phone that the app created and not need a attachment for the flash.
The 1/30 shutter limit causes pictures taken to be overexposed whether your flash is set at 1/32 or 1/128 and your ISO value set at 25
Prepare to point the flash away from your subject and bounce the light against a wall, or add extra layer of diffusion/filter on the flash to ensure proper exposure
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
