Hate this app

So every time I try to do this challenge with a Spearow every two times I take along a picture it automatically logs me out of the app

Good Idea!

I like it. It is a good idea and very intuitive. Very Clean interface.
But when i close the app and turn back from the background it freeze for some seconds. Please fix it.
Running on iPhone 4 iOS 7

Not too Shabby

Beautiful UI, easy to use, great options.

Recommendation: state more clearly that the app is for dslr photography and possibly add a tutorial for newbies.

Great results with my Mark III and my 6D.
