Camera+ was optimised for iOS 8
Not sure if you guys have noticed this, but you can now take pictures with your normal iPhone camera, and post edit them using Camera+...without importing and exporting and clogging your Camera Roll with duplicate photos. Very handy! :)
Camera+ has been updated for iOS 8, bringing full manual exposure and Photos Extensions compatibility to the app!
