The first dedicated iPad2 camera app - Camera Boost

April 20, 2011 in Photo and Video (E)

[] Cheshire, United Kingdom - iOS developers, Interealtime today is pleased to announce the release of Camera Boost - the first dedicated iPad2 camera app. This is not a photo editor or a camera that 'develops' effects later. Apple's powerful new A5 processor means that the image enhancements, filters and effects can now be viewed in realtime in the live camera view while shooting, taking some of the guesswork out of creative photography.

It's very easy to use. The live camera view is always on screen. As you select various enhancements and effects, you see the result immediately in the live view. Add as many as you want, tweaking and combining them to get the look you want. Got it looking "just so"? Tap the Photo button at any time to take a picture - it's saved to the album instantly, where you can share to Facebook, flickr, email , etc.

Camera Boost has a good range of image enhancements, filters and stylish effects that will transform your pictures, improving image quality or adding creative photo effects. You can mix and match filters to create a wide range of looks - how about a cleaner, sharper photo with brighter colors? Or a retro washed out look? Or a softer black and white style, or even false color like a thermal camera. There's no limit to how many effects you can use at once - the camera is always fast and responsive and shoots instantly.
