    Is there an app which makes the quality of the pictures taken better? Picoli looks like a possible good choice and I've just found Photogene although this looks like an "edit after" type app rather than making the actual camera functions better?

    no apps in the app store makes the quality of taking pictures better. all of them are just 'edit after' apps.

    your best bet would be snapture, which is only for jailbroken iphones.

    I doubt you will ever see a camera app because it would duplicate the camera already install on the iPhone which would get rejected by Apple.

    Hmmmm, OK. So out of the post-edit tools, which is better?

    My vote goes to Picoli, worth the app price!

    Ezimba is a free editor that offers a lot of options, I use this occasionally but Picoli is the one I go to 98% of the time.

    There was some kind of camera pro tools or something that was a Jailbreak app in the day, wasn't there? That gave you some minor enhancements on the camera's functionality (color balancing, delay snaps, exposure times, I think, and some other things). What ever happened to that app? Does it still exist?

    I second Picoli and Ezimba. More so Picoli than the latter.
    Picoli offers simple effects with a great UI, and Ezimba offers quite advanced filters and effects with a UI that needs improvement.

    Both are worthy of their price, in my opinion.
    Whatever you do, avoid 'Jade' [App Store] at all costs.

    Anyone have Picoli AND Photogene?
    I bought Picoli before Photogene was available, but it looks like Photogene might do the same stuff but even more. I'm debating whether or not to pay $5 again just to get the extra features in Photogene, but won't bother if it's really not that much better. Also, anyone know if Picoli will be adding any more features soon?

    I have both and both have their perks.

    As a Photogene owner, what killer feature does Picoli has that Photogene doesn't?

    Or vice versa...

    They may each have their perks, but I'm trying to determine if it's really necessary to have both...

    I have both, I prefer Photogene for the interface and controls.
