In my recent review of Camera Plus I touched upon the handy feature introduced with the March 2014 update – AirSnap. This feature turns an iOS device, which can be an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, into a remote trigger that can be used to take a photo on another iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

In the HipstaGeneration spotlight this week is Camera Plus for the iPhone.
And there’s no guessing what app category Camera Plus falls into – with a name like Camera Plus its a dead giveaway. Camera Plus, however, is not to be confused with the iconic Camera+, which in May 2012 was the 10th most popular paid app of all-time among iPhone users.

Hipstamatic may have kicked started the photo-filter revolution in smartphone photography, and although it’s still hugely popular, it’s by no means the last word on image effects.

That all adds up to a lot of photos. And it’s only…

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Every once in a while, a photo app comes along that makes you think: ‘Wow!’ And you marvel at the creative possibilities opened up by smartphone technology – it makes you wonder whether smartphone photography has any digital limitations.
