Capturing that one perfect shot of a group of friends can be difficult. There’s almost always someone who is blinking, not looking at the camera, or forgetting to smile. Now there is an app available that solves all these problems and more.
Perfect Shot couldn’t have a better name since it essentially describes exactly what the app does. Designed specifically with iOS7 in mind, Perfect Shot detects the number of individuals in a photograph and can detect their eyes and smiles. What’s amazing about this app is that it automatically captures a photo once everyone in the group is smiling and not blinking, so there’s no need to press the shutter button. Of course, eye and smile detection can be turned on or off by tapping on the gear icon in the lower right corner.
The app does an amazing job of capturing photos quickly. I tried to trick it by half smiling, squinting, and winking. It wouldn’t take the photo until both my eyes were open and my lips were smiling (even if the smile was fake). It automatically captures the photo in a fraction of a second, which means flawless selfies and amazing group shots.
All photos are stored inside the app, and users can view them by pressing the Preview button in the lower hand corner to see the list of thumbnails. More than one thumbnail can be deleted at a time by pressing the edit button in the upper right corner. Photos can also be shared one at a time with Facebook, Twitter, email, and the Camera Roll.
There’s little not to love about Perfect Shot. The app looks great on iOS7, it does what it advertises, and is the perfect addition to everyone’s photo app collection. Though there have been reviews that claim that the app doesn’t work on an iPhone 5S, an update is in the works. For now, users can try it out for free before it becomes a paid app again. I highly recommend giving it a try and at least snatching it up before the price increases.
