Why ProCam 3?
Simply speaking, ProCam 3 does the job of handling complex controls really well. It is an Apple AppStore ‘Best of 2014’ and ‘Best of 2015’ app. It has a beautifully simple interface, with sliding controls and easy enabling/disabling of auto modes. There is also an Apple Watch extension that can be used to capture images/videos remotely.
How much does it cost usually?
While prices may vary from country to country, the app retails for $4.99 (or Rs. 300 INR). But I highly recommend downloading it when it’s free - right now!
What’s my rating?
Although ProCam 3 hasn’t replaced the default camera app for me, I continue using it as a secondary app. I love the ISO and shutter speed settings as it helps capture much better low-light images. In my personal experience, ProCam has never crashed or run into problems. Make sure you use certain settings/modes only when you have a handy tripod/stand, else you’ll end up capturing shaky images. I also like the 3D Touch optimisations on this app; I can 3D Touch to granularly control manual focus.
I give this app a 4.5/5.
