Since we’ve launched NeuralCam – Night Mode Camera, we’ve had a blast rolling this ball down the hill. It’s been an eventful 4 weeks filled with fun, lessons, hard work and dedication to the product and our users.
We became the #1 Product of the Day for August 26 on ProductHunt, 9to5Mac called us the best iPhone night camera app, we made our appearance in The Next Web, VentureBeat, Petapixel and a couple of other media outlets, and enjoyed the support of our users who took over 300k photos with the app and made NeuralCam the 7th most popular Promo Saturday post of all times on the /r/Apple subreddit.
This reception put a massive smile on our face that Apple recently made even bigger by featuring NeuralCam in the US App Store.
Yes, that just happened! We’ve been handpicked by Apple editors who bring unique perspectives on what’s new and next in the world of apps.
So, if you fancy paying us a visit, for a week, between 20 and 27 September you’ll find NeuralCam amongst the curated list of apps within the Photo & Video category in the Apps section of the Store. (The slides below will help you locate us.)
This recognition arrives (almost) simultaneously with our latest update which aims to delight our new and current users who have surprised and humbled us with very relevant and useful feedback. Many of the features we’ve rolled out were suggestions coming from them, either via the firstname.lastname@example.org email address or other channels, and we really appreciate each and every one of them.
Here’s briefly what’s included in NeuralCam 1.1
A brand new UI that we hope will make the app a lot more fun to use.
Support for the telephoto lens, so you can get that 2x optical zoom out of it. (Remember, the telephoto lens is available on the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max models.)
Grid On/Off toggle in the settings, if you’d rather take photos without the 3×3 grid overlaid on your camera view.
Option to delete photo straight from NeuralCam. Now you don’t have to leave the app to erase the shots you’re not so keen on.
Last but not least, we’ve also fixed some bugs so NeuralCam works like it’s supposed to, but if you’re still encountering issues, please shoot us an email over at email@example.com and we’ll look into it as soon as possible.
That would be it, except there’s one more thing before you go:
We love seeing your tests showing us how the default camera compares to NeuralCam. There are lots of stunning photos taken with the app and with this new update we’re sure many more will follow. Keep tagging your shots with the #NeuralCam hashtag and we’ll cherry-pick some to share on our social channels (giving you credit, of course).
