Moco Cam Pro: You Don’t Want This App on Your iPhone!

by Pu on October 16, 2010

Some developers think whatever they manage to sell to their audience is ok; quality doesn’t really matter. After all, buyers are inclinned to buy everything if you make the package look alright. I’m not saying all these developers do it in bad faith… Trying to sell apps that seem ok on the outside but are in fact rather hastily put together, that is. Abraham Vivas was either extremely pleased with his app, to the point  he didn’t care about improving it to make it actually functional and useful, or he was just lazy. I’m not sure which is the answer. Anyway, his Moco Cam Pro is definitely one of the apps that you don’t want on your Apple device.

Main Features

  • Up to a 1600 x 1200 pixels resolution;
  • Twelve filters available.

Appotography Opinion

Moco Cam pro is a truly worthless app that you don’t want to buy. No, you don’t. For its price anyway, I’d call it a theft at the expenses of the buyer. First of all, I find it very annoying when apps, especially paid apps, have such poor and misleading descriptions in the App Store. All the information the developer of this app offers is outrageously laconic and not in the least informative. Also, the developer didn’t take time to develop the app properly. You have five lousy filters you can choose from that you can either use on photos stored in the camera roll – and you have no preview or anything to see what’s going on and how your photo is going to be affected, but you have to go and look at the result in the camera roll itself! – or you can apply to photos taken on the spot.

The filters are abominable: not only the output quality is terribly low, but they are frankly ugly to look at. Not at all the vintage effect you should expect, but a messy blur with a colored vignetting and a hint of grungy spots here and there. If you don’t believe me, look at these pictures edited with Moco Cam Pro:

There are obvious perfomance issues as well, for even the simple action of scrolling the camera roll is painfully slow in comparison with other apps.

Even if it were free, I would tell you to stay away from this app at all costs! Please, do yourself a favor and don’t waste your money on this!

Moco Cam Pro has over 12 photo effects and well all!
I do not share this review…

It used to have less than 12 filters I reckon. Since I deleted the app long ago I don’t know about updates but the review is probably written before new filters were added. The filters I tried were not great tho.

Jai is right: the additional filters were added after our review was written. At first only five filters were available. We are thus updating the main features info. Anyway, since the quality of the app remains quite mediocre and no significant improvements were made according to our testing, we stand by our previous opinion.
