Orasis is a brain-inspired photo correction app whose objective is to restore and enhance your digital photos. Its unique photo correction algorithm, which is the result of academic research, is inspired by the neural mechanisms of the Human Visual System.
Your retouched photos should look closer to what your eyes perceived at
the exact moment your photo was taken.
With Orasis you can:
•Make your photos look more realistic!
•See visual details which were not visible in the original photos!
•Enhance the dark background in photos taken with a flash.
•Enhance photos taken in high contrast conditions (e.g. backlight, sun etc.)
•Increase the level of local details in your photos.
•Achieve HDR-like results, with only one photo!
•Minimize very dark or bright image regions.
•Make your camera match what your eyes see!

I'm usually very happy with the automatic effect. The results can look a little surreal at times, but much better than most tone-mapping, artificial HDR effects. And always better than the non-corrected image.
In fact, I've found that tone mapping is very hard to apply manually without looking cartoonish or blowing out areas of the photo. The devs have found a way of applying a subtle tone map effect across a broad range of imaging conditions, automatically.
Of course, the ability to adjust settings and compare with the automatic (and original) photos only makes this app better. Some other enhancements apps (Camera+ Clarity) do a good job too, but often have very limited options for adjusting the effect.
This was not thought out well. Not only does it save over the existing picture, the automated corrections never fail to make the image so much worse. Saturation goes crazy and the image is blurred. If you want to use each feature to adjust the image yourself, you cannot do it from the original image. The corrections and features are grayed out and unadjustable. Adjustments can only be made from the crappy auto-adjusted image that is produced. There is no way to undo a change made or go back to the original image to start again. And every now and then, an adjustment made will reapply random color or saturation changes you've chosen and painfully managed to make go away. The range of options that could be used to adjust images make this a promising app, but unfortunately it is not designed to actually utilize those options. Disappointing. And deleted.
Solves a major flaw
The iPhone's camera doesn't doesn't have the dynamic range of the human eye, so you often end up end up with two types of pictures: 1- correctly exposed for light areas with shadow areas completely blacked out, or 2 - correctly exposed for shadows with light areas totally blown out. There's no middle ground, and neither makes for a good image. I don't know how many times I've given up after taking and deleting multiple photos of a subject that alternated between #1 and #2. This app solves the problem.
