ClearCam iPhone app Review

Description:

Anti-shake features are not all that they are cracked up to be.  Many times you end up waiting so long for these sensors that you end up missing the moment that you were trying to capture on camera.  And then sometimes the photo was blurry anyway so the whole thing was all for naught.  This happens too much in a world that is fast paced and must be captured quickly and on the go.  With the ClearCam iPhone app you will be able to use the quick mode to estimate blur while still catching whatever special moment you are trying to capture.  Just point the camera and shoot whenever you get a chance for a great photo and the advanced processing will do the rest of the work for you.
Features:

  • There are some pretty sweet features that are included with this little photo app that will really enhance and boost your ability and desire to take pictures with the built in camera that is located on the iPhone.  There is a feature that will actually more than double your resolution on your camera.  This way your pictures are going to turn out much better than they have in the past
  • As you start using the app to take pictures you will notice that each picture you take is clearer and sharper than the last.  Once you download the app you will never be able to go back because of how sharp all of the photos are going to look
  • The other great thing about this app is that it is incredibly easy to use.  All you have to do is access the app and then just quickly point the camera and shoot it at whatever it is that you would like to take a picture of
  • Another nice thing about the app is that once you have pulled it out and taken a picture of something that you really like it will just automatically save the photo onto your camera roll so you don’t have to do any exporting to get it into your photo library
  • Also this app does not make you wait for any type of anti-shaking sensors since it is already advanced in its technology and in its creation.  The anti-shake is already a part of the app which is just awesome

Conclusion:

This app has been given decent ratings for being just another iPhone camera app that you can download.  The app has been rated by multiple iPhone users and has been given a rating of 3 1/2 stars out of 5 stars and you can currently download this app onto your iPhone for only $1.99.
