The Good Camera+ is excellent for playing with your photos, and with frequent updates, the app continues to improve with new tools and fixes.

The Bad You can't see live previews of your selected effects before you take your pictures.

The Bottom Line With solid photo-editing tools, cool-looking filters, a ton of other useful perks, and continued support from the developers, people who take pictures on their iPhone should not hesitate to download this app.

Editors' note: This review has been updated with features introduced in version 5.0.

Camera+ helps you take better pictures, add filters, and more, with a tool layout that helps you get the look you want quickly. But the latest version makes the app better than ever with the addition of The Lab, a new set of tools that help you make fine adjustments on your photos.

Even without the addition of The Lab, the app offers several options for making unique-looking images out of photos on your camera roll, or you can snap pictures from within Camera+. When taking a picture, you can use a 6x digital zoom for close-up shots, a stabilizer that automatically takes the shot when your hand is most stable, and a grid overlay so you can line up your shots as straight as possible. The app is set up for improving your photos using an intuitive interface, and even though it's been around for a while, I think it's one of the best in its category.

Make your photos better
Once you have the perfect shot, Camera+ gives you several ways to enhance the image. You manage your images using the Lightbox -- a backlit display area that makes it easy to find the images you want to work with. You can then use digital-camera-like scenes to apply common camera effects in specific situations like simulated flash, sunset, backlit images, and portraits. You also can crop your images to your specs or select from several standard sizes.
