Camera+ adds improvements & teases iOS 8 update, Flappy Bird follow-up announcedPopular iOS photography app Camera+ was updated on Monday with a handful of improvements, with bigger things promised to come with iOS 8 this fall. In addition, the creator of the "Flappy Bird" sensation has revealed his latest title, set to arrive on iPhone this week.
Camera+ improves Vignette, Soft Focus & more
Camera+ for iPhone as well as iPad was updated on Monday to version 5.2, which the team behind the app said will help tide users over until major updates arrive to take full advantage of iOS 8. The interim update adds a new adjustment to the Vignette effect in the Lab, and also adds improvements to the Soft Focus and Film Grain Effects.
The update also addresses an issue with Flickr sharing, and squashes bugs associated with the Clarity Pro function.
The developer teased that "some cool, new things" are coming in the near future. For now, Camera+ version 5.1 is available for $1.99 on iPhone, and $4.99 on iPad.
Dong Nguyen's next game: Swing Copters
The creator of mega-hit Flappy Bird is back at it with a new game dubbed Swing Copters, set to launch on the iOS App Store on Thursday as a price of 99 cents. Touch Arcade was given a first look at the new title, and the accompanying video shows that the gameplay is a simple tap-based function similar to Flappy Bird.
Also like its predecessor, Swing Copters also features a retro graphical style akin to Nintendo Entertainment System games from the '80s.
Flappy Bird became a global phenomenon earlier this year, before the developer abruptly pulled the game from the App Store, citing the attention it brought him. That resulted in a wave of Flappy Bird copycats that flooded the App Store and found their own considerable success.
