Ratings and Reviews
Good app, some issues
Edit: latest update breaks the adaptive theme
It’s a great app that works as advertised. Would be nice to see slightly more frequent updates. Controls, especially shutter are a little tough to navigate around. Love the level indicators along two axes. The controls also auto rotate despite systemwide orientation lock, which is great.
Auto focus has issues
Auto focus doesn't work all the time on tapping the screen. Have to try multiple times and it gets annoying.
Manual is always need !!
I waitng for this app for years. Thank you so much.
One thing i suggest I thing if you create border in hitogram a red line both side that will say over exposure like that, may worked well I think, but over all amizing !!
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
