Unfortunately, when using the iPhone camera you are often faced with the situation of having to change the settings to take a better picture but as the default app doesn’t come with that many settings, you need to install a custom app. Here is where King Camera iOS app comes in action, with plenty options for you to customize. Among these we mention the implementation of a timer and sound trigger. The best thing about King Camera is the fact that it is free to download.
When you open King Camera app for iOS 5, it will display a photo preview where you can control almost every aspect of the picture.
