This article is about two camera apps that I have purchased and actually use on my Apple iPhone 6s+. I am not being reimbursed or paid by either company for this review. It is my personal view about each, shared with my readers for their own consideration. I use both apps on my iPhone.
Okay, Seem to have a recurring problem. The images are not opening up to full size when clicked. Have had this problem with WordPress before. Sometimes. it works, some times it doesn’t. You can do a right click and load the image in a different tab or window but while larger it is still at a reduced size. They probably want me to upgrade my account type.
