The folks at SmugMug have just released a very cool new iPhone camera app which they have modestly named "Camera Awesome". In the limited time I have played around with the app so far, I do agree there is definitely some degree of Awesomeness to it.
Camera Awesome contains many of the standard features found in most iPhone camera apps, but with a few noteworthy extras. The feature that first stood out to me was the cameras speed. "Blistering Speed" is SmugMug's claim. I'm not too sure about blistering, but I am pretty impressed. The app opens very quickly, shutter lag is minimal, and a Burst mode allows for continuous shooting at a "not really all that fast but pretty good for a phone" frame rate.
For editing your photos, the "Awesomize" button is the app's all-in-one enhancement tool. One touch of Awesomize seems to boost colors, increase sharpness, clarity, contrast, brightness, and who knows what all else. It's a pretty nice effect, although it does take several seconds to process all that awesomeness.
A plethora of filters, presets, and various special effects are available to dress up your photos with a variety of looks and styles, if that's your thing.
Finally, SmugMug has made it simple to share your masterpiece with the world with the 1-tap share page, which includes social media, photobucket, email, and of course SmugMug.
