    For me it has replaced the native camera app. I keep the original camera app nearby in case I need to shoot video.

    Camera+ was recently pulled from the app store for allowing users to toggle a hidden option to use the volume buttons to snap photos... which is a fantastic feature btw.

    My i4's jailbroken, and I have it set up to boot Camera+ for a quick photo if I push volume down and up in succession regardless of what app I'm in.

    It's wired that the developers haven't showed up a response after this incident. None of em' has ever tweeted or blogged since then. They just disappeared.

    I'm hoping Camera + is NEVER upgraded if they have to remove the feature. I would rather see a "sequel" to the app, so the current version is left untouched. The feature to use a physical button to shoot is priceless, and I can't see why Apple didn't do this themselves.

    How do you enable the volume down button to take photos? What version do you need?

    Camera+ is FAR superior. Camera Plus is a totally different app.

    This is the one that has been pulled from the App store now:

    I managed to get it before it was pulled. I think it is great and it has replaced the standard camera app for me.

    Camera Plus basically used Camera+'s name to get people to buy their app. It's nowhere near the quality of Camera+.

    Can't believe Apple lets these kinds of things slide threw the App Store. It's not exactly a copyright but it can confuse most people. Not fair that these people are taking advantage of people via Apple.

    the irony of the whole thing is-Apple rejected the button function of camera+ because of the whole "user confusion" thing, yet they'll allow apps like this that just capitalize on name recognition of another app. I seem to recall a handylight clone (sans tethering of course) that did the same thing.

    call me crazy but these copycat apps seem more confusing than a setting that you have to enable yourself.

    Camera Plus and Camera Plus Pro came first. You're right -- they are nowhere near as good as Camera+ was.

    Here's a scammy app taking advantage of the Camera+ name... Real Camera+. It's a horrible app that should be avoided.

    Here's a post about it:

    http://lifeinlofi.com/2010/09/03/looking-for-camera-it-is-not-new-photo-app-real-camera/

    And to be fair, here's a review of the app:

    http://lifeinlofi.com/2010/09/06/review-real-camera-is-a-really-bad-app/

    It's not even a good camera replacement on its own. It's a low-end image editor that saves low resolution files.
