Ratings and Reviews
The best camera app!
I’ve been using this app for years and I’m so thrilled that it’s still be updated. It’s powerful and easy to use- and it’s so much better than the stock camera app. Definitely worth it!
I just bought this app. Really wanted a straightforward app that allowed shutter speed control without all the filters editors and other rubbish I don’t need. This app should be it were it not for the uselessly maddening interface. The settings jump around everywhere. It’s nearly impossible to make a setting quickly. Simple sliders....that’s all you need to make this work. But I’m uninstalling. Shame.
Redesigned into unusable
This was my go to app for digiscoping and I frequently recommended this app to astronomers, birders and photographers. No more.
The redesign is maddeningly difficult to use, especially while trying to align an iPhone to a high mag telescope, then adjust settings to keep motion blur down, and then take some shots. Controls are now incredibly difficult to use. Auto adjust features come on for no reason and linked in ways that do not help (leave my shutter speed where I put it, darn it!)
Just to be clear for the developers: it is called MANUAL, let us us it in manual mode and get out of the way.
Please re-release the prior version and take a time out in the bad-UI programmer’s penalty box.
