Ratings and Reviews
Good, but . . .
A very interesting app that's easy to use. Has interesting filters, especially "Noir" and "Stark." However when you apply one of the filters or when you choose the 1:1 aspect ratio, the app crashes constantly. I am running ios8 on an iPhone 4s. I hope the developer will fix the crashing problem because this app is very creative and has good potential.
. . . a few days later. Upgraded my stars from two to four. Have been using this app regularly and find it to be both beautiful and easy to use. It's rapidly becoming one of my go-to camera apps. Crashes seem to be less frequent, although they still happen, and I hope the developers will address this issue. Recommended.
Please make the image quality better, focusing on a farther level has very poor image quality and doesn't reach as far as the native camera and other apps. I love the layout but the interface is a little weary and a bit hard to use. Also the grid turns off after you close the app. VSCO cam has these same features but is more complicated to use and does not take full advantage of iOS 8's manual controls. Overall I am very pleased with this app and it is worth .99¢ but if its possible please consider these ideas (if you can even fix these issues because i know the iPhones camera has its limitations). Thank you.
My Favorite Camera App
Manual Cam has become my favorite overall camera app, if only on account of how the manual focus is implemented. It is less fussy than several of the competing manual camera apps. I have compared out with most of the other top rated manual camera apps and the images from this app are equal, if not superior, to any of the other IOS camera apps. The per-imaging filters are a nice add-on, but not essential.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
