About John Casasanta

Among too many other things to list, including serving as chief of tap tap tap, John Casasanta is the Producer and Architect of Camera+. He possesses the innate ability to make people cringe on demand.

First up is the new Today Widget where you can get handy Photo Tips, read inspirational Photo Quotes of the Day, and most importantly, easily open Camera+ from anywhere. That’s right… with a simple swipe & tap, you now have lock screen access to Camera+! In order to comply with the guidelines, we felt a bit like a Bichon Frisé jumping through a series of flaming hoops, but our singed fur was worth it to get this nifty feature into your hands. If you’re not familiar with how to enable widgets, simply follow the instructions in the Camera+ settings menu in the Extensions section.

Next up is the new advanced white balance control. What’s more enlightening than 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon? Howzabout 7000 degrees of kelvin white balance? For those of you who care about these sorts of things, you’ll be happy to hear that you can now dial the white balance in to whatever kelvin temperature value you’d like. Kelvin (or bacon) not your thing? Not to worry… there are still the easy-peasy white balance presets to make your life simple.

Manual White Balance

For those of you with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, Camera+ 6.2 now sports a completely native UI for your ginormous phone. Automatic scaling was ok, but there’s just no substitute for a pixel-perfect, custom UI designed specifically for your megaphone.

6 Optimization

For you Instagram fanatics, with Camera+ 6.2, we’ve included direct Instagram sharing so you no longer have to go through the generic “Open In…” thingamajig. Saving steps is always a good thing. It’s just too bad that we didn’t get this feature in before Aaron Schock resigned. 😕

Instagram Sharing

And as always, we’ve iced a bunch of bugs. No mercy.

  1. I don’t give a s… about new features, as long as you are unable or unwiling to fix the bug that when editing via extension in iOS 8 location data is not preserved.

  2. If you can’t / don’t want to get this right just say so and i’ll get my refund from the App Store.

    (Feel free to merge the two comments)

  3. You probably already know this, but just in case – Camera+ crashes after the update (I have iPhone 5S). Initially it worked fine, but when I tried to run the app via notification center, it crashed and now it crashes every time when I try to run it.

  4. It opened fine, but when I tried to run the app via notification center, kaboom! Even after an iPhone restart, the app crashes everytime when I try to open it. iPhone 6, latest iOS.

  5. App works fine once unlocked, but will not launch app from lock screen. Just takes me back to my pin screen

  6. Please, please, please fix the Camera + extension. Its that unreliable its unusable. Such a pity for such a great feature. Black screens, stuck at the spinning wheel, crashes to name a few. I have deleted it for now. Will check back one day and see if it works.

  7. My camera+ app just stopped working correctly. It seems to crash
    When I try to open up The Lightroom. I have tried adjusting the settings
    But no luck. Sometimes it won’t save to my camera roll with edits(only without)
    And once in a while it saves it as a black box(corrupted image)
    I have a lot of work I need to access and I can’t now: please help!
    Is there a way to refresh it without losing all the images on the lightbox?
