CamLock starting to RISE!

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011


Oh yeah, some (I guess major) forum in Germany called slashCam has written about our app CamLock (read it here) . This has generated some traffic to our website and also some sales in the App Store. Today I actually reaached something like 21th position in downloads en 14 th postion in revenue in the German App Store that is and in the category Photograhpy. Really nice to see your app next to names as photoshop, iMovie, Hipstamatic etc.
Let’s see where this takes us…

CamLock video camera app in App Store

Last night our latest iPhone release became available in the Apple App Store. You can get it here. So another video app you might say. And indeed you are right, it seems that these days video apps are flooding the app store. So what does ours excactly do, what makes it worth the money? This app is totally not about after effects, filters etc. This camera app allows you to lock exposure, whitebalance and focus. This gives you a way to create a decent recording without the automatics ruining it.

One final thing I must add is that since iOS 4.3 some glitch in AVFoundation was introduced which removes the exposure lock if you begin/finish recording. That’s why I decided to disable this switch on devices running IOS 4.3 /4.3.1 while in standby mode. Otherwise the app might raise expectations. If your device is still running on 4.0 – 4.2.1 then your fine and exposure lock can be set before recording. I only found out about this 4.3 glitch 2 days before submitting the app. I filed a bug report with apple but until today got no word about it. Of course the whole purpose of this app is exposure/whitebalance locking and because of this glitch the app’s functionality is compromised, which is really too bad and right now even prevents me from updating my devices.

Happy shooting..
