“For the last several weeks, I’ve downloaded over a dozen camera and video apps for the iPhone, and though each has something unique to offer, I was particularly interested in finding the most practical camera app that would address the limitations of Apple’s built-in camera app. As of this week, I think I’ve found it – Jens Daemgen’s ProCamera.”
Update 12/20: ProCamera v-3.5 has been approved by Apple and is now available for download on iTunes!
Jens Daemgen and the team of developers at ProCamera have been working diligently on the latest updates to ProCamera. Our latest version (3.5) has now been approved by the App Store review team. ProCamera 3.5 is a major update and is available free (no cost) to all current ProCamera users.
New ProCamera features built into version 3.5 can now be unveiled for all to see. Read more below about our new Codescanner and > (here) ALL of the great new features in ProCamera 3.5
Codescanner will enable you to scan bar-codes, QR-codes and DataMatrix codes. This new ProCamera feature/function has the ability to retrieve detailed product or service information simply by scanning the QR-code or DataMatrix code on your iPhone.
We have no doubt that, very soon, the majority of smartphone owners, and most notably “ahead of the curve” iPhone owners, will be scanning QR and DataMatrix codes. If you want to learn more about a product, a service or an event, there will likely be a QR code on display. A simple point and “scan code” will deliver pertinent info directly to your iPhone. This “instant delivery” is most commonly accomplished by the automatic launch of a webpage tied to the QR code you’ve just scanned.
Why is code-scanning such a big deal? “And what’s in it for me” (WIIFM) you ask?
ProCamera founder Jens Daemgen was recently interviewed (Oct. 2011) by The Beginners Lens photography blog:
We’re really excited about this week’s Meet The Developers (well let’s be honest…we’ve been excited about all of them…) but this week is particularly great as we simply love the ProCamera app! It’s by far one of the most used on the TBL iPhones, so we were pleased as punch when Jens Daemgen took the time to answer our questions about the app itself and the team of developers behind this awesome camera replacement!
To bring the picture into focus … ProCamera has launched a blog for our customers (over 1 million downloads and growing!) and those tens of millions of iPhone/iPad/iPod mobile camera users who will soon become new ProCamera fans. Our blog will compliment our company website and deliver the latest news/info and provide a platform for “pro” and “hobbyist” photographers alike to share their ProCamera experiences.
