Customer Reviews

  • Great app for hdr

    by Chummyus

    Easy to handle, nice results

  • Great!

    by Juan Awesome

    Works really well

  • Wow

    by RFMugen

    Very Nice results! Awesome app

  • Simply the best

    by Twoedges

    I process real photos taken with a real camera using Photomatix. Sometime I am in a situation where I do not have my camera with me but I need to capture a scene. This software rarely disappoints and if it is unable to process, I can take the original exposures and process offline myself. This is simply the best HDR app on the market. I've done wonders with it.

  • Please add optional geotaging

    by kscneev

    Excellent and simple photo app. Please add geotaging option and add time and dato to EXIF

    Very cool app!

  • Tk

    by Tulik23

    Very easy app Takes great photos

  • Forget the iPhone 5S cam

    by iDevice.RAC

    All the fuzz about the new 5S camera is nothing if you have the original 5 and this app. My photos have been complimented since I started using HDR. My only request: allow use of the front camera.

  • Fast and direct

    by JakUnlimited

    This app does exactly what is expected. Fast, easy HDR exposure and merging. Automatically works well, manually setting the dark and light areas is only sometimes needed. Simple and effective. Nice app.

  • Nice pictures

    by Abbybbb

    Works well. Would be nice to be able to have a little more control over color/contrast etc instead of all presets. But all in all great app!

  • Camera review.

    by Raymond4365

    Excellent camera, am using it on my iPod touch 5. It would be even better if it had a zoom feature on it it's why I only gave it 4 stars.

  • Definitely one for the camera app folder!

    by J.Conrose

    5star rating all day long. When it comes to a basic point-n-shoot camera with an amazing end result this is the app to get!!!

  • Amazing!

    by Dodge137363


  • Works like a charm

    by ARothmanMusic

    Perfect app for those shots where you need to expose for interior and exterior at once.

  • Fun to use!!

    by LindaJeanCV

    Love using this app! Brings life to pictures!!

  • Great App

    by d-trick3000

    Captures great photos in high-contrast situations. Using this app more and more. Very impressive!

  • 5 star

    by Mutiny dog

    Simple to use with great results,

  • Useless

    by Volestar

    Did not work at all. Crashed every time I tried to use it.

  • NO help system

    by Cybernettr

    This app gives you NO help whatsoever. When you launch it, you are presented with three unlabeled icons at the bottom. Tap the screen and you get a couple more items, but no help. That's it! I can't even figure out how to access my camera roll from this app! I like to be able to read help. I don't like apps that are like puzzles.

  • Current version crashes

    by El farolito22

    Whenever I try to save the HDR versions.

  • Ugh.

    by Madeline Bianco

    Not working for me. What's the deal? I deleted it

  • FAIL - does not support RAW

    by Slamdome

    The app claims to support RAW images, but all it does is pull the embedded jpg. Final image quality is not that good. I have paid less for far superior apps.

  • HDRough...an lack of intuitiveness...

    by slopii joe

    This app lacks a user friendly experience. No instructions on use, and not easy to use. Majority of photos have to be enhanced with a software filter rather than the HDR effect. Also photos do not save automatically (which wouldn't be a problem if there was clear instructions). Needs improvement.

  • by Laos112

    I need my money back...!!!very bad apps don't make much change on photo Don't realize on good review They fool you. Don't waste your money.

  • Brilliant. Fast and Great GUI

    by must have coffee

    Beats True HDR and Pro HDR, lightning fast and an elegant interface. Brings iPhone shots to life. A real find.

  • Best app, still not perfect

    by gdudg

    From my testing this is the best iOS HDR app (definitely beating out Pro HDR). That said, there's room for improvement: wish this (and other) app could handle more than two exposures like virtually all osx alternatives. Definitely worth more than the $1.99 it costs.

  • Good app

    by Godisawesome!

    Easy to use, really enhances images.

  • Superb

    by dancingwithporcupines

    Easy to use. Dramatic effect.

  • Awesome but be steady

    by Paparazzi

    Hold still, the pictures are great, press against glass, level, be steady, and the HDR result is impressive. I use the iPad 4, and get excellent images.

  • Get it

    by SpaceCaptainSuperGuy

    So easy to use. AWESOME pictures every time.

  • Pretty good

    by JoeArtGuy

    It does a perfectly good job of doing just what it claims to, which is a simplified way to combine bracketed exposures into an averaged out HDR style image.

  • Client simple app! It just does what it says.

    by jahreed


  • Six stars

    by AkaMaxBuz


  • OK

    by peter v g

    This is an OK camera but there are better

  • Crap.

    by zoundslike

    Not much for me here, another app with no or poor info on how to use...sure wish all apps had much better tutorials...all I can figure out on this app doesn't add up to much...

  • great hdr cam

    by tramsiges

    creates awesome combination from dim and bright simul shots!!!

  • JGA

    by jga007

    Easy to use with great results!

  • Excellent

    by Rana Potter

    I just got this app, it is simple to use and creates great HDR images without a fuss! So far so good :)

  • Awesome!!

    by Skydiver1985

    I get professional loving photos with my 4S

  • Nice camera accessory

    by DrDave12211

    I wouldn't use this as my only camera option but it is especially useful when your standard camera can't quite catch the photo you're looking for. This app combines the camera and enhancement software into one simple two-step process.

  • N/A

    by Alan & Anne

    Really love this App. Works great, especially in high contrast situations.

  • Love it

    by ermabom

    Takes great pics and sometimes the under exposed original is stunning

  • If your giving this app 1star...

    by woojoo666

    If you are giving this app 1 star because "most cameras have many more filters" and "it shouldn't need to take two pictures", please do some research into what HDR actually is. This is the best HDR app I've seen so far, and I've used ALOT of them.

  • Good not great

    by Richpixtampa

    I wish it would give you more control but it does a decent job

  • Great app

    by Susan Houser

    Like a lot !

  • Nice.

    by DemBones72

    I like this app for shooting a scene with a wide gamut of brightness.

  • Ideal

    by Mani&Nami

    I love it , .....
