That would be me.

The issue took care of itself after a restart, without me really paying too much attention to it. Now, when pictures are taken in the dark, the flash overwashes the image, creating a white haze over the image (too much flash?). I hope the next update fixes this.

Given the fact that an image was taken with a phone doesn't make it "not worth anything" or a "crap photo" or something along the lines of that. I know some photographers who sell their stuff on Getty Images and people don't even realize that they've been taken with an iPhone. There are exceptions, and photographer skill is one of them. As I mentioned, maybe tock's image wasn't quite the best image to put up when it came down to iPhone 5 image quality, but when you say that it's not even a solid image and is plagued with a whole lot of 'wrong'.. It makes no sense.

By the way, your comment in regards to DxO and whatnot doesn't really make any sense. I never said anything about critiquing a camera. I said that you shouldn't be so quick to judge one's work in a negative way without even providing your own input on how to improve or what could be changed. It's like reading someone's essay, saying it sucks, and then moving on with your life without even giving tips or suggestions. It lowers your credibility.
Are you ghey?

I'll take that as a yes.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Congratulations. You're the only one with a clue. I'm sure you'll go far in life.

In all seriousness, this style of photography is very popular on Instagram. My photo is perhaps not the best example, but maybe this should motivate some of you to download the app and look for a photo more fitting.
Clueless about what? Your artwork? Do you really think Instagram helps your credibility? GTFO

My friend was showing me how passbook automatically launches when you get close to a starbucks location. That would mean it is constantly checking your location and burning battery. Any way to turn this off?

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

How do you know this? I've seen no evidence of this.

Add starbucks via passbook, link your account. Now walk up to a starbucks location and the app should automatically launch.

I was walking with him when he showed me.

Passbook is filed with newsstand on screen i don't see. Apple should have made them like the find my iphone app, ibooks app, and find friends where they can be deleted and installed depending on the user. One can dream though...
