    Tap to focus, tap and hold to lock auto focus and auto exposure.

    The stock camera app DOES indeed have autofocus. If it doesn't, just tap on the screen where you want it to focus.

    No autofocus? My gripe with the built-in cam is that it CONTINUOSLY focus. Better app like camara+ u can tell it to focus at a particular spot ignoring what's happening to the rest of the frame.

    There are a number of camera apps that I own, but many were purchased because at the time the iPhone's camera didn't do what it does now. Still I would prefer an all in one camera app since the stock one really doesn't do it for me.

    I've found procam to give the most control, but I really have found that I can get the shot that I want with the stock app, still that's the one that I recommend if you want more control.

    ProCam seems good. Its anti-shake feature is to prevent blurry pics right?

    Um...the stock camera app.

    Camera + for everything else.

    Cult of Mac's CultCast podcast just had a top instagramer on it. The host is a photographer and he was really blown away with what this guy does and what apps he uses. Check it out the apps are discussed around the last 10-15 minutes of the pod and they might be in the label

    If Apple allowed us to replace the default camera app in the quick lock-screen slider to other camera apps like Camera+, I might actually download the app too.

    Tap the area on the screen to focus btw.

    It would be a great help if the OP would post an example of his photo(s) he claims he can't focus. Is it poor focus or camera shake?

    As has already been said, it's the camera plus correct technique that ensures a good, well focused photograph. No App will ever correct bad technique.
