    Well, we accidentally deleted Camera+ with unsaved pictures. Anyway to recover them?
    I tried restoring from backup - but app did not restore from backup. Also, it is not in iTunes since we never transferred it to it.

    I am assuming these photo files have to still be somewhere on the phone. Is there a photo recover software that I can try?

    I am looking at "Nice to Recover Data" software now, but I can't figure out how to make mac recognize iPhone as a disk?

    What are you thoughts? Thanks

    The only way to get them back is restoring from a backup. But as you already tried that, there is no way to get them back.

    lol i have no clue. it's my girlfriend's phone. She connected it to iTunes, and when it asked if she wants to transfer new purchases to iTunes library, she clicked "no".

    ----------

    does backup store applications? If yes - then for some reason it didn't have Camera+ in it. If no - that explains.

    Backups don't store the application itself, only the application's data.

    thanks. So, if I were to re-install the app onto the phone, and then restore from a backup - would that work? Because, before iTunes removed it from the phone, it did perform a backup (i hope)

    Possible fix

    It should work to restore from a backup made while the photos were on the phone, and then reinstall Camera+ from the app store. Let me know if this works.

    Thanks!

    There's the problem there. You have to say yes. Besides, why wouldn't you want to transfer the purchase?
