    I use my iPhone camera at least 5 times a week, be it if i'm at a restaurant, or just on the tube, but for all the camera apps, i haven't found one that really enhances the photo to it's best. This could be from sharpening certain details, or exposing parts of the picture.
    I'd like an app that can do this, but effectively.
    Any recommendations at all?
    Thanks :)

    First thing that springs to mind is Instagram. You can now print out those Instagram using iPrintagram from the AppStore. I know sometimes the filters don't enhance the pictures as much as you would expect but i would give it a go. :)

    Snapseed is probably what you're looking for. I haven't had much personal experience with it; I got it from one of those Starbucks promotion codes and I haven't used it much. However, I do know it has been lauded for its extensive features.

    iPhoto is $4.99 USD if you want the iOS version. And $19.99 USD if you don't have the most recent version, and want it.

    I use instagram, but it doesn't meet what i need this for.
    I was keen on iPhoto, but even though it's universal, it does seem better suited to the iPad..

    NightCap (disclaimer: I wrote that one) and snapseed.

    NightCap: use it in low light, it uses longer exposure than other apps, so you'll get a brighter, less grainy photo (but you'll need to hold the camera still or rest it against something). See this thread for some unbiased opinions + example shots:

    SnapSeed does all the other useful improvement stuff pretty well. I have that and iPhoto, and I'd say they're good at different things - if you just want to improve the detail + bring out the definition a bit, snapseed is a bit better for that. (Although I would recommend iPhoto instead for general colour tweaking, touch-ups etc - it's much better in general and works well enough on the phone!)
