Camera+ Returns to the App Store and Diptic is Updated


By Louis Trapani - Posted on 21 December 2010

Camera+

After being pulled from the App Store by Apple for violating its interface standards for apps (by including a hidden function that changed the volume controls into a shutter button for this camera app to use), the Camera+​ - tap tap tap has returned. I didn't bother getting this app before it was pulled because I felt I already had apps that basically did the same thing, so I had passed on it. Since then though, I have seen some of the results of other photographers on Instagram by using the app and it made me reconsider the app, but it was unavailable until now. It is currently on sale for 99¢ in the App Store. (You might want to get it while you can -- just in case).

While I am speaking of photography apps for iOS, the app, Diptic - Peak Systems has been updated recently to support high resolution images. Diptic is an app that allows you to create a montage of photos in one. Before I started sharing iPhone photos directly from the iPhone, these kinds of apps had limited usefulness since I can just as easily do what it does in something like Photoshop once I transfer my photos to my desktop system. But now in this day of Instagram and sharing photos directly from the iPhone instantly, apps like this one makes more sense. Diptic is a universal app for both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad and is currently $1.99 in the App Store.

Below are some examples of what can be done with the Diptic app right on the iPhone (iPod touch) and iPad. The photos are from last night's Solstice Lunar Eclipse which I shot and posted to the net live as it was happening.
