Very Glitchy and Incapacitated
Snapture was a marvel when it was released for the "altered" iphones a few years ago. This new incarnation still has a long way to go. Apart from the similar form factor, this app remains a hobbled copy of the original. It takes forever to load and if you quit the application without "saving" your photos, you'll be rewarded with a red indicator next to the icon on your homescreen telling you that you forgot to save them. When you return however, if you take additional photos, your old ones will be lost but the indicator will still be there. If you have OCD, seeing the indicator next to the icon will mortify you. I know I can't leave it be. I had to sync-erase the just to get a decent night's sleep. Color correction, focus shifting, many of the features you know and love (and have come to expect) from this app and made Snapture such an essential tool are all missing. What you can do, is digital zoom. Basically you can crop your photos smaller or take really pixelated photos for only $1.99. I hope Snapture Labs releases an update which addresses the bugs if nothing else. It's been a while since this app was released and they should have fixed the "saving" issue by now at the least.
Saving photos takes way too long!
Snapture has an impressive interface and features like being able to see thumbnails and easily email or delete photos on the fly is nice. My major complaint about this app is that is takes entirely too long to save the photos when you are ready to leave the app. I took 7 photos and it took over two and a half minutes for it to save them. This whole time you have to sit and wait for it to finish before you can close the app. Also, the in-app instructions as well as the apps pages on the app store indicate that the pictures will be automatically saved or you can press the save button to save them manually. However, in my testing the photos were never automatically saved. Finally, the image zoom is worthless because the images become noticeably pixelated if you use it. All in all this app is not worth the $3 price tag in my opinion.
BUYERS BEWARE OF BROKEN APP!!
I'm going to reiterate what several have already noted for a work-around (if you're still inclined to use this long-broken app)- DISABLE THUMBNAIL PREVIEW. Although you can't preview your pics anymore, it does eliminate "the blues".
That said, we should all be swamping Apple with complaints about what comes close to fraudulent advertising on Snapture Labs' part. As previously mentioned, the "Please be patient" warning has been posted for months. There is no specific information provided BY THE DEVELOPER to the unwitting consumer about the nature of the IOS4 issues- that seems to be left to the reviewers, apparently. There also does not appear to be a good faith effort on the part of the developer to fix the problem, yet this PAID app remains in the App Store. This app should be removed immediately from the App Store until it's fixed. I urge everyone out there with a complaint about this app and the developer's behavior to register their complaints with Apple. I know I am.
