There are a plethora of camera apps out there for iOS devices, ranging from apps that offer full manual control for pro-photography, to apps that lets you take photos in an instant with funky filters etc., Camera Plus avoids all that clutter and offers two main functions: AirSnap for remote photography and Macro mode for close-up photography.

With Camera Plus AirSnap feature, you can wirelessly control the app and its functions from another device which has the same app installed. The second device basically acts as a remote for first device for taking photos remotely.

AirSnap lets you trigger the camera shutter, start recording videos, and fiddle with functions like flash, burst mode, timer etc. which makes it perfect for times you wish to photograph that family portrait with yourself included.

If taking “close-up shots of raindrops, flowers and butterflies” is your thing, the app features Macro Focus mode which lets you “instantly shoot pro-like macro photos that carry amazing detail.”

The app also features ability to toggle video recording between HD and 480p for reduced file sizes. Then there’s Focus Shift feature which “allows you to focus in and out of desired subjects during recording to give that cinematic effect for perspective.”  

Camera Plus also packs a nifty one-tap editing feature called ‘Pix’d’ for quickly fixing under-exposed shots. There are some iPad-specific features as well such as Soft Flash, and the ability to customize the camera shutter button placement.
