I just wanted to briefly share my first experience with an app called NightCap which promises to take better pictures in low-light situations than the standard iOS Camera-App through the longer exposure time it uses to take them.

Here you can see a picture taken with the standard app for taking photos at almost night-time:

And here’s a picture taken under the same conditions using NightCap:

Looking at this light source in the upper right of the pictures it seems obvious that this single-purpose app wont be suitable for use in normal, let alone sunlighted situations because the app makes light sources look much brighter than they really are but overall the second picture seems far more usable than the first one, especially considering that these pictures have been taken with the rather crappy rear-camera of an iPad 2.
