    "ProCamera is probably the most important app if you like to take photos with your phone. The default camera app in ios is a joke, but ProCamera lets you adjust and control so many more settings. This is a must have if you want to take decent photos with your phone's camera."

    "I like this review. It tells what the product does and how I can use it. It also says how the product can be obtained. It tells what features the product has and lets me know why they are useful. The only thing it doesn't have that I would really like for it to have would be a user's experience opinion with using the product. "

    "B612 - Selfiegenic Camera works really well for people that don't have a lot of phone storage. It works similar to snapchat, I can add goofy glasses, or ears , noses etc. It is super easy to use, and has a lot of options. I let my kids play with it, and it keeps them occupied while waiting for appointments"

    " Motion! helps you to capture videos in a way that isn't included with most phone models, so one good thing about it is that it allows you to make the most out of your cellphone by creating new ways to use your camera. If someone wants to produce content outside of the ordinary picture with filters thrown on, Motion! is a great choice. What is unique to this app is that you can stitch together different photos in order to create stop-motion videos, not just one set of photos that are taken at the time of using the app, so your photo library becomes a resource of material that you can use for one of a kind videos!"

    "A friend told me to try this out. Other than something for fun I can't really imagine what I would use this app for. I just don't see many circumstances where I would need to take a front and back picture simultaneously. That being said, the app worked well and did just what it says it does. If you have a need for this then go for it, it works well. "
