If you are like me you get tired of hearing about camera apps because they all start to blend together and none stand out. Well there is one that was just released that is truly one you need to check out. It’s called Camera Awesome, by SmugMug and it is just that! The base app is FREE so you can check it out just like I did! Yes, there are in-app purchases, but that’s only at your discretion and they are so cheap you aren’t going to believe your eyes! So stick with us to see this great app in action!
Wow! That pretty much says it all. The base app gives you a LOT! We have only just started to play around with all the fun stuff it can do, but we encourage you to just go ahead and download it! After all it’s FREE! You can use it on your iPhone, iPad (even take pics on your iPad 2 and later today the iPad 3) and get the feel for it yourself. You can even import pictures into the app for editing! Even photographs you didn’t take with the app.
We really liked the ease of sharing photos and videos with a number of services. We uploaded the two below to Flickr and also emailed them and in each instance it was quick and easy and we didn’t encounter any problems.

The difference in vibrancy and definition is immediately apparent but that is the fault of the camera, not the app. While we have not experimented with the video portion yet (and what’s UP with the pre-recording MAGIC?) my guess is you are going to see a much better end product when it comes to the iPad 2 than you’ll see with photos. But that’s just the nature of the iPad 2. We’d love to hear what your thoughts are on that if you’d leave them in the comments below!
We haven’t begun to play with or show you all the neat filters available for the app! We will show you how a frame looks. Granted, this isn’t the prettiest picture, it isn’t meant to be, we just wanted something colorful, with lots of contrast and some text to judge how clear the pics turned out. With that in mind you’ll find the pic with the frame above.
So what do we think? We think you’d be crazy to pass up getting Camera Awesome for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch simply because it is FREE! But more than that, because they are right, it is awesome. So go ahead and grab as many copies as you’d like today!
