AirSnap – Magical Remote Captures Using Two iOS Devices!
So we’ve done it again. The restless in us has gone and put its hands where it doesn’t belong. Every so often, there comes a time when you hit the wall and begin to wonder about the next few steps. After coming out with the exhilarating refresh of Camera Plus, we were always trying hard to come up with something that would continue to provide value in terms of photography and improve the experience that comes with it. The first major update brought about gorgeous Filters and Text captions and this brought in a renewed sense of vigor amongst users who used Camera Plus in ways that exuded creativity. We then took a step back and focused on what would shatter the barriers and bring back the ‘X’ factor into smartphone photography. We wanted something extraordinary that you guys would cherish; not just another gimmick that would end up being a filler.
We played around and then it struck us! Now that the capture experience was slick, savvy and svelte, why not make it the same from afar? Allow us to elaborate – capturing the world is all fine and dandy until you come to a situation where you really want to be in the heart of the action. This is where AirSnap comes in. So you want to include yourself in group shots (duh!) and record all candid moments that you just can’t miss out on. We’ll we’ve just given you front row tickets to all of that!
AirSnap is a magical way to capture wirelessly using Camera Plus. With 2 different iOS devices like iPhones, iPads and iPod touches, you can now control Camera Plus and be in your story at the same time.
AirSnap lets you take photos and videos while also allowing you to review photos on the device that remote controls the other capture device. You also get to control the flash, front camera and use the volume keys as the trigger. Now that’s pretty cool, isn’t it? This is a marked shift from the days when photography was all, well you know, straight up photography! AirSnap comes in handy for group photos, fun spy videos, shots with your pets and a whole lot more. You are only limited by creativity.
Also making a dramatic entrance is Camera Plus on the iPad. After going Universal, Camera Plus is now available to enhance your photography experience on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad! You get the same luscious interface on all devices while the iPad version has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. It features an adjustable capture bar, which you can adjust accordingly, so that you don’t strain your fingers when reaching for that capture button. An iPad that is firmly gripped in your hands is the least one can wish for when taking captures and it isn’t asking for too much, is it? You also get a brilliant view of all your captures in the Camera Roll with a smooth continuous display that is just a joy to sift through. Going through captures just hopped onto the gravy train!
Also, to compensate the lack of a Flash on the iPad, we’ve brought out a ‘Soft Flash’. This mimics the effect of a flash and replicates the brightness onto captures. We first came out with this feature when Camera Plus was launched in 2009 as the iPhone 3G and 3GS lacked a Flash. This is a step back into the good ol’ times for us. We’re also throwning in a 720p video capture option for those who need it.
Other additions that have been added in Camera Plus 3.5 include AirDrop sharing and the ability to pause and resume video recording. We’ve also limited the capacity of the Locked Roll to 25 captures before you have to purchase it in-app. But to make it up to you, we’ve localized Camera Plus to 10 different languages. You can now say hello to Camera Plus in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Russian! This should cheer all you native speakers.

1. AirSnap (Remote Capture using 2 iOS devices running Camera Plus).
