Camera+ App Update Pokes at Instagram Terms Debacle

Camera+ received an update a couple of days ago for bug fixes and included a little Christmas poem that takes a stab or two at Instagram’s rather poor attempt to update its terms of service and take advantage of its user base.

’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the App Store,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a Spore.

Some crash bugs were fixed with the greatest of care,

So that you, our beloved Camera+ user, could take photos with flair!

We’ll never do shady things with your shared pics because it just isn’t right.

And on that note… Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Camera+ runs $0.99 and is available in the iTunes App Store.
