    but newstap isn't an Apple product.

    why don;t you contact the newstap site..

    https://itunes.apple.com/app/newstap-lite-usenet-newsreader/id297063247?mt=8

    oh look yes newstap have updated it recently from OS5 to OS6.

    I assume yuor refering to newstap lite or do you have the paid version


    Yes Apple do, but not all companies or individuals do so.
    Looks like ther vendor hasn;t updatedc the app or their update doesn't work.

    In Videon edit tools, under settings there are options to rotate,
    change aspect ratio, resize, compression,
    & FPS rate.
    All of the edit tools can be applied to videos captured with the
    standard camera by importing the file from the Camera Roll.

    In the App Store link for Videon above, click on the blue "...more"
    link on the bottom right of the DESCRIPTION section to give you more
    than the rudimentary description.

    Then there is the developer's site.

    If you press on the screen as yuo would for focus setting, if yuo do for more than about 2 seconds it locks focus and exposure.
    Not that's it's really allowing you to adjust in the true sense of the word but one small tap for photographers ..........

    Our CC just started a category for smart phone pictures. The image must
    be taken and processed on a smartphone. While I have not entered that
    category, I am just throwing it out as a suggestion. A smart phone is a
    good instrument for photography,
    For my phone photography I use Camera Awesome, which links to Smugmug.

    i "bought" a personal hot spot from Verizon, which is 4g. It is much
    faster than 3g. I connect my notebook with it, and more importantly,
    when I go on a photo trip with my wife, she can use it on her notebook.
    I get much more photo time that way.

    Why should nospam, who has made it clear that he is not looking for such
    a product, research it for you? He correctly pointed out that there are
    many camera apps in the App Store, and said he had use at least one of
    them (which doesn't do what you wanted, anyway). If you want to know
    what app he used, ask him. If you want to know what app that gives you
    the functionality you are asking for - do the research yourself. There
    is a search function in the App Store.[/QUOTE]

    He makes a claim and then can't back it up.

    I will play with that the next time the need arises. Does the
    focus/exposure point track as the iPad is moved?

    It's a matter of proof. I realized the hard way that I thought PS could
    do something, it could not. nospam implied there were apps that could
    perform a function. He should be able to prove it, or admit being wrong.

    Camera Awesome is a bit exploitive as they sell a bunch of filters as
    in-app purchases. If you want that sort of adjustment on an iPhone try
    the free Adobe "PS Express" and/or "Snapseed" together with the default
    camera, "ProCamera", "Camera+", or "Top Camera".

    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-photoshop-express/id331975235?mt=8 >
    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/snapseed/id439438619?mt=8 >
    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/procamera-7/id694647259?mt=8 >

    <
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/top-camera-hdr-slow-shutter/id441450063?mt=8
    ....and I also have the very versatile "Photoshop Touch" for my iPad to
    give me a photo editor with layers.
    That does far more than just edit iDevice shots.
    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-photoshop-touch/id495716481?mt=8 >
    < http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-touch.html >

    There are quite a few PS Touch tutorials available. Take a look at this
    to get some idea of what it has to offer on the iPad.
    ....and I know, you & I already have CS6, but... :)

    That is a great option. However, for those who already have a phone 3G
    or 4G, with Personal Hotspot capability, they already have the means
    without the added expense of the additional device.

    You only get 4G where it is available, and for those folks with iPhone
    5 & later they have 4G, and ultimately that might be motivation for me
    to upgrade from my iP4S in the future.

    there are about 1 million apps. a quick search of 'camera' returns 1000
    hits, which is the limit of the search engine i use (not the app store
    app). i don't have the time or inclination to go through all of them
    (or even a small fraction of them) to find the app that fits *your*
    needs.

    if all you want to do is adjust exposure, the built in app *does* do
    that, just not with a +- control (which is meaningless to most people
    anyway).

    the way it works is by tapping on the area of interest. think of it as
    a spotmeter. to increase the exposure, tap on a dark part of the image
    and to decrease it, tap on a bright part. you can instantly see the
    result, so move the box accordingly until you get what you want, then
    take the photo.

    note that with the built in camera app, this will be your focus point
    too. if you want to control them independently, you need to get a third
    party app that offers that ability, and some do that.

    there may be a camera app with a +- control where you directly adjust
    it by number of stops, but as i said, i have not examined every single
    camera app.

    if third party developers think that is a feature worth offering, then
    there will be apps with that feature. if they don't think it's that
    important, then there may not be. it's definitely not a mainstream
    feature.

    apple's camera app is targeted at a typical user who wants snapshots,
    not the photo enthusiast who wants a wide range of controls. for the
    latter, there are other apps.

    a 3x3 grid on an iphone is not bad because there's not that much space,
    although it was 4x4 before. however, it does have unlimited pages which
    is a plus.

    on the other hand, a 3x3 grid on an ipad is rather wasteful. that's
    something that hopefully will change in a later revision.
    as i said before, apps can add keys that are appropriate to the app.

    there are text editing apps that have cursor keys, shortcut keys (1 key
    enters in a phrase) and special symbol keys.

    sometimes there are so many additional keys that on an iphone, there's
    not much space left to type.
