Camera+ is still my favorite go-to photo editing software on both the iPhone and iPad so you could imagine me jumping with joy learning that Taptaptap, the Camera+ developer, has just released a brand new photography software.

Framed as a bold, new experience in iPhone photography, MagiCam is focused on snapping photos and transforming them into gorgeous, eye-catching shots with little or no effort on your part.

You can grab it for just 99 cents in the App Store and I have a video of it in action right after the break…

From the blurb:

MagiCam gives you 1-tap perfection for every photo you shoot. No need to learn any complex photography terms or techniques. Just amazing results every time.

Check out the promotional video.

There are nine photo moods that you can live preview.

Sharing choices include standard services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Messages, email and more. The simplified camera interface allow you switch between the front and back camera, turn on the flash, zoom in and out and opt for a square format popularized by Instagram.

There’s not much else to say about MagiCam, really. If you typically take a lot of selfies and have been on the lookout for a no-frills photography app that’s easy and simple to use, you should give MagiCam a whirl.

For more information, check out the official website or read a nice review by MacStories editor Federico Viticci.

Taptaptap is perhaps best known for its Camera+ app for the iPhone and iPad, which since its inception in 2009 has been downloaded more than twelve million times.

Buy MagiCam for a limited introductory price of $0.99.

The app is native on the iPhone and iPod touch and requires iOS 7.0 or later.

    Whoever made that icon must have been on LSD.

      I like it anyway… the icon, I mean.

  • naomumu

    nice

    i think it is worth buying

  • Jason Baroni

    This app seems cool, but I still keeping Camera+ and PhotoShop Express. I think there has to be a twist over this market for me to purchase a new photo editing app.

    • TeChNoStyLeZ

      have you tried ProCam ? It offers tons of options to adjust and imo it is superior to camera +

      • TeChNoStyLeZ

        but dont confuse it with ProCamera thats another app

      • Jason Baroni

        Yes, I did… There are quite great options for cameras. Analog, for example, has poor filters but the UI is amazing. ProCam is nice too, though.

    That video, though. Seriously infomercial levels of fail. Who tries to take a picture like that? Who drops their hot dog because they’re having SO MUCH TROUBLE taking a picture? This seems like a solution without a problem in the way they presented it. I don’t take pictures of myself eating food (I’d much rather just eat the food), but if I did, I’d launch the right app first (the stock app works well enough for selfies) and, if I had trouble, I’d put the food down first.

      Lol. I think that was the joke.

  • NaSty

    I prefer to have more control over my photo taking, doesn’t look like this is worth a purchase. I think the iPhone’s stock ‘Auto-Enhance’ works better than this

    KitCamera was even better than Camera+ but unfortunately for whatever reason it was removed from the store.
