Honestly? I use it the most of any photo app.

I truly love this app. My photos don't have that "stock Instagram" look to them that everyone else's photos now have. I've never had any of the problems that users have mentioned here, thankfully. I run photos from my Canon Rebel through it (b/c higher pixels than iPhone 5) from my MBP to my iPhone to the Best Cam app and then back to my MBP—and have even sold some of the framed prints that I made from it. I like the ability to get different effects from changing the order of them. Highly recommend it.

Used to be the Best Camera app

I'm guessing the purpose of this app was to promote/accompany a book titled "The Best Camera is the One That's With You" by Case Jarvis. Since the book launched in 2009 there have been very few enhancements to this app. It seems the app served its marketing purpose and is no longer needed by the author and thus, no enhancements since 2010. It's a shame because this app was Instagram before Instagram was anything. Now it's just lacking.

Now its the meh cam

19oct11 app hasn't been upgraded in 10 months. The fees doesn't work. Not sure it's worth the money now. Support is still a little thin.

15nov10Heard there is a mem leak no ETA if/when it will be fixed. App crashes at full screen review. Can't share with anything. Crashes. Can't auto create a new photo album unless it's uninstalled and re installed. Crashes. Can't take full res pics. Not worth the $$. Chase Jarvis is great. The camera app. Not so much.
