Now, half a decade later, tap tap tap is going free with its blockbuster app. The app developer has launched a new free version of Camera+ as an easy way for iPhone users to obtain a more powerful camera app.
The new Camera+ Free offers many of the same powerful features as its $3 sibling. You’ll find touch exposure and focus, different shooting modes (e.g. Stabilizer, Timer, Burst), 6x digital zoom, a “front flash” feature that uses your screen’s brightness, a horizontal level, a Clarity adjustment that “breathes life into dull photos,” scene modes (e.g. Food, Sunset, Night, Portrait), various effects, a “Lightbox” organization feature, crops, borders, and more.
Other features can be added to Camera+ Free via in-app purchases. These include manual shooting, better editing features, lossless TIFF files, and more.
TechCrunch writes that this latest move comes at a time in which paid apps are on the decline, and that more and more developers are opting to make their apps free with in-app purchases.
