Camera+ New For iPad – Updated – Fake App

Since posting about this ‘new’ app earlier today we have been inundated with readers telling us that this app is indeed a fake app. Apparently, the developers of this app even took the icon from TapTapTap the developers of the original Camera+. So, not only have they used their name, reputation and their icon but they are also misleading in their description too.

We don’t know how this one got past Apple but it is best avoided. Guys, if you want to make a photography app, keep it original.

So far this fake app is still available in the App Store but Apple have been notified so it won’t be long until its gone. What a shambles.

Fortunately Apple have wasted no time and have removed this app from the App Store. That’s great news for any one mislead into purchasing this app and also for the TapTapTap developers who really don’t need this kind of publicity.

    This is not the app from taptaptap. I stupidly clicked on the link and payed for this and the app looks nothing like the screen shots. It appears to be some kind of a fraud, though I don’t understand how apple let that one get by.

    This app is a fake. It is not from the developers of Camera+. They stole our icon and artwork for the app. The actual app they are selling looks nothing like our app.

    This is a rip off of the true camera+ app by taptaptap. The app store has been notified as has taptaptap.

    I downloaded this from your link and it’s a completely nonfunctional piece of’s like some early beta version – the distorted picture of an anorexic model comes up in portrait and there is no way to reorient to landscape…no settings menu…none of the screens that you show in your review. And to add insult to injury, I had to pay for it again even though I own the iPhone version! Any thoughts?

      We’re be contacting Apple about this, as have many other sites and we are quite sure they will give you a refund but don’t hold us to it just yet but we’ll keep you informed.

    There are these apps named Camera Plus and Camera Plus Pro came atleast half year before Camera+ came in. Camera+ heavily borrowed the name and features from those apps. So, you’d come across other apps like these trying to rip-off and make money on others fame/name.
