    "This is like having a pro camera in your hand but instead it's your phone. It has lots of great functions like your camera might have like zoom, auto focus, manual, exposure settings. I have not used it a lot but it seems to work pretty well so far."

    "Camera+ takes your iPhone and turns it into a halfway decent camera. The stock camera app is okay for taking a quick selfie, sure. But the lack of customization and control will hinder you if you ever want to take real photos. Camera+ puts a whole slew of abilities at you fingertips while streamlining the process of uploading your photographic masterpiece onto your favorite social media site."

    "If you need to take long exposure photos, then NightCap Camera is a really good choice of app. The default photo app on iOS devices is really lacking, but NightCap adds the controls you need for low light images."

    "I don't know anything about photography but this isn't that popular and it's a paid app (costs $4.99). I would start with something free or more popular before buying something. "
