The iPhone is blessed with a number of high quality photography apps. Some of them provide an enhanced camera with added features over the standard iOS camera app, some of them provide multiple social network support for image and photo sharing, and some of them allow you to edit and manipulate the images you create to your heart’s content.
PowerCam by Wondershare is one of those rare apps that does all of the above, but not only that, it actually beats many apps that do all of these things individually to provide an overwhelmingly good app that is a complete camera suite for iPhone.
Here, straight from the developer, are all of the best features of the app:
Add REAL-TIME effects to photo AND VIDEO—while you shoot! What you see is what you get! (Exclusive!)
-60+ amazing effects like Vintage, Retro, and LomoCyan so you take photo/video with even more oomph
-60+ eye-popping fun effects like Sketch, Super Chin, and Picture-in-Picture let you play with reality
-Advanced effects like Color Splash, Tilt Shift and Panorama (Available together exclusively on Wondershare PowerCam!)
-Add effects after you capture and also to all your iPhone CAMERA ROLL photos. (In-App-Purchase)
-Apply kooky frames or tap a few favorite photos to make an awesome collage
-Share to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, E-mail, etc.
-Upload not just clips, but ANY SIZE VIDEO to social sites.
It really does do all of those features well, and I particularly liked that way that you can add effects while you are filming or taking a picture. The timer mode is sure to be a boost when taking snaps on vacation, and the great panorama mode pre-empts the feature in the upcoming iOS 6.
The fact that you can share to Instagram is a good idea, a feature that quite a few apps don’t bother to include, and the way that he app places no limits on the size of the photos and videos that you upload to all of the various social sites.
It really is the complete package, so PowerCam comes highly recommended for anyone looking for a fully featured replacement for the built in iPhone camera app.
