The official Apple Store app for iOS devices has recently undergone changes in design and function, but Apple still occasionally uses it to host time-limited offers to download select paid apps for free.

From today, users who scroll down the Discover tab should find an option to download camera app Obscura 2 for free via a redeem code, rather than paying $4.99 to download it from the App Store.

Obscura brings together incredible features in an easy-to-use interface that helps you take great photos, without getting in your way. It has a bunch of gorgeous filters to make your photos pop, and plenty of pro features to help push your photography skills further.
Obscura 2 allows users to shoot in a range of formats including RAW, HEIC, JPEG, Live Photo, and Portrait modes, and offers 19 filters designed for use with a wide range of scenes.

The Obscura camera features also provide flash control, grids, shutter time, and spirit level, while a dedicated library browser lets you edit, share, copy, favorite, hide, delete, and trash your pictures.

To download the app for free, tap on the featured app in the Discover section of the Apple Store app, tap Download now for free, and you will be redirected to the App Store's Redeem code screen. Your free redeem code should already be entered - all you need to do is tap Redeem in the upper right corner to begin downloading the app.

The offer to download Obscura for free through the Apple Store iOS app expires on September 25, 2018. Note that free app offers usually vary from region to region.

Thanks for the heads up MR! I already have a few Camera apps but always good to add another that may have slightly different features.

Doesn’t have Portrait mode, as stated in the article.

Developer says they’re working on it.

Cool thanks. Apple Store App. Discover, scroll all the way down, go through 2-3 screens where you need to redeem the code (already typed in, just hit Redeem on the top right), cool!

Eh. Pretty basic app with garbage filters. Downloaded the free version and already deleted it. Seems like a good app for people who like Instagram filters, but that’s it. Not worth the asking price at all. Plenty of more robust apps for free or $1.
