Ever have problems taking that perfect photo? Can't frame a straight shot? Need help getting a level image? Use gyroLens! This full-featured camera app has a killer new feature: it automatically levels photos in real time, while shooting. With gyroLens, you don’t need to worry about crooked aim or setting up and taking level shots – the app does it for you. gyroLens brings a true point-and-shoot capability to iOS devices, and makes photography easier and more fun. Shortly after release, the app was featured in iTunes "New and Noteworthy" in January 2011, "What's Hot" in February 2011, and it has been part of iTunes "App Store Essentials".

gyroLens gets its name by using the gyro (iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th generation) and accelerometer (iPhone 3G and 3GS) to correctly and automatically frame a level shot from any scene. Choose from clip and mask modes that cut out the level frame, or fill mode which zooms the level frame back to full size. The app also includes a gyro-off mode for regular uncorrected image capture.

In addition to its unique gyro capabilities, gyroLens is also a full-featured camera app, offering the following:

* Small, large, burst, and timer shot modes

* Manual tap-to-focus and exposure (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4)

* Focus and exposure activity indicators

* Front camera (iPhone 4 and iPod 4) and rear camera

* Flash on/off/auto (iPhone 4)

* 1X, 2X, 4X zoom

* Portrait and landscape reference frames

* Gyro clip, fill, off modes

* Fast buffered image saves

* HUD on/off options

* gyro/accelerometer calibration

* camera and location EXIF metadata

gyroLens is great for action shots, macro shots, self portraits, scene compositions, and situations where it's hard to line up a level image due to complicated terrain, bad position, poor aim, or lack of time to aim. gyroLens frames a level 4:3 sub-image from the scene, with perfect alignment every time.

From the developer

Margie, mhiggins32qj, and joel cleare, if you do not like the quality of photos, there are two things to check. First, make sure you have the app set to "Large shot" or "Timer" mode, both of which use the full resolution of the camera. The "Small shot" and "Burst" modes use a reduced resolution for speed (640x480 on newer devices, 400x300 on the iPhone 3G). Those modes still take perfectly clear photos, but they are small and viewing them at the resolution of the device photo album may give the appearance of poor quality. Second, switch the app to "gyro clip" or "gyro mask" mode. You may have it in "gyro fill" mode which resizes the corrected image to regular resolution and can impact quality. Gyro clip and mask modes do not resize and will preserve the native pixels of the image as they come from the camera. Those are the modes to use if you want to prioritize quality.

Please note that gyroCam has many photo options because users have requested this level of flexibility -- you can run the full spectrum between small/fast and large/high-quality. The app can do rapid fire shots in action situations, or capture full size high-quality images that take advantage of the full camera capabilities. This flexibility does require you to explore and setup the app to your own preferences, however. Please tap the "i" button to view the app's manual and help page, which will give more information. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me using the support link up above.

George L, as noted in the description, the app automatically corrects the level frame of a photo. That type of correction is based on rotation, which is where the gyro comes in handy (and where the app gets its name). The app does not make any corrections for motion or blur, and doesn't claim to. If you have any questions, please contact me using the support link up above.

Awesome Camera App!

My wife has shaky hands when it comes to using her iPhone 4 camera and keeping the horizon straight. This app makes her a PRO! I use it for that and all the other great features in it. The only minor problem is the 4x zoom, of course it's gonna be grainy but hey it's a PHONE..... Great job on this app!!
