For the past two years, Camera+ has been one of the most popular photography apps in the App Store, and now it’s finally coming to the iPad. The developers at Tap Tap Tap have also added support for the iPhone 5’s larger display and iCloud sync between the two apps.
Since it’s release, Camera+ has been downloaded 9 million times. The app has remained popular for its Instagram-like filters, sharing features, and in-depth editing options. To celebrate the new release, Tap Tap Tap has put both the iPhone and iPad versions of Camera+ on sale for only $1!
Camera+ for iPad takes full advantage of the big screen – combining the professional quality shooting and editing of Camera+ for iPhone with new iPad-only features!
Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or someone who’s barely touched a camera, Camera+ will give you the tools to create the best quality images! Transform your photos with our advanced editing features, one-tap dazzling fxs, and easily share them with friends and family.
The New York Times spoke with Tap Tap Tap’s Lisa Bettany about the announcement. iCloud woes have apparently plagued Camera+ for quite some time:
Ms. Bettany said it had been challenging to make iCloud work properly inside the app. She said that Apple’s toolkit for embedding iCloud had been inadequate on its own, and that her team had had to retool the feature to get it to work.
“It didn’t work for the past year, and developers have been complaining about how bad it is,” Ms. Bettany said in an interview. “Our developers have recoded the whole thing to make it work. It’s taken twice as long as it should because of the problems with it.”
