Bracketeer is a serious photo processing utility for serious photographers. It takes multiple exposures of a scene (bracketed exposures) and merges them together to form a uniformly lit image. It is similar to tonemapping with an HDR image, but there is no ghosting, and the result look much more natural.

What's New in Version 4.3.4
Nothing new in app. Had do resubmit in order to add new localized languages to app store description.
Worked like a champ
I know my away around a good camera, but hadn't tried much HDR photography. I also know my away around photoshop, but couldn't get it to make anything like what I'm used to seeing in HDR galleries. Bracketeer saved me today. I had shot a bunch of bracketed exposures of the house in perparation for putting it on the market. I turned to the app store without high hopes after being unable to get anything acclompished in Photoshop or Aperture, and for 5 bucks, thought I ought to try Bracketeer. Sure glad I did. The results were perfect to my untrained eye, and I was very happy with the results. I can't compare it to anything else, this being my first real run at HDR, but it served me excellently.
My favorite photo processing app
These days I pretty much do HDR for everything that I shoot. I used to use Photomatix, but it always gave me that surrealistic HDR look. Bracketeer does a much better job and for a lot less money! The results are very natural and the app is so much more responsive than Photomatix. I use Bracketeer on almost everything that I shoot, and I can highly recommend it to anyone!
Has it's advantages over other programs (Updated)
This software basically does what it says. It has it's place and is very useful for overlaying shots without enhancing too much so they look like HDR. It will provide a truer representation of the shot and it will be hard to tell the photo was a combination of many shots. For the money it is a useful tool, does need some tweaking, and could come with better instructions.
