Microsoft Pix named one of the 50 Best Apps of the Year – Time Magazine “Microsoft might have just made the best and easiest camera app for the iPhone and iPad.” – Napier Lopez, The Next Web “I found that Microsoft Pix produces photos that are plain old better in some cases…” – Jordan Novet, VentureBeat Take better photos without extra effort! Microsoft Pix has serious intelligence behind the lens, so it is a bit like having a pro photographer inside your camera – tweaking settings, selecting the best shots, and enhancing them on the fly – to help people and scenes look their best. It’s designed to help take the guesswork out of getting great photos, so now you can just enjoy the moment, instead of struggling to capture it! Microsoft Pix: Point. Shoot. Perfect. Top 10 Features • NEW PIX STYLES! Completely transform your photos with artistic styles and watch as your artwork gets created • Smart settings – Automatically checks scene and lighting between each shutter tap, and updates settings between each shot. • Face recognition – People are the most important photo subjects, so when it detects a face in the shot, it automatically optimizes settings to help people look their best. • Moment capture - Captures a burst of frames every time you tap the shutter button, including frames before and after your tap, so you won’t miss the right moment. • Best Image(s) - Automatically selects up to 3 of the best and most unique shots from the burst, and immediately deletes the rest, so you don’t waste your phone’s storage or your time comparing and storing similar frames. • Image quality – Uses discarded burst frames to enhance each Best Image, improving exposure and color, and reducing noise and blur. • Live Image – Automatically creates a short, looping video, by stitching together the frames from the burst into a Live Image, but ONLY when it senses motion in your shot, so it won’t waste a ton of your phone’s memory. • Hyperlapse – Videos shot with Microsoft Pix are automatically stabilized for smoother playback, and can be time lapsed and saved at many different speeds. • Auto-sync - Seamlessly syncs to your camera roll, so you don't have to individually import or save your photos and videos to your camera roll. • Widgets and 3D Touch – Where available, 3D touch and Today and Lock screen widgets are enabled, so you can jump directly into photo capture, selfie capture, video capture or gallery.

    The Photosynth feature stitches dozens of photos together to create a larger photo. Unlike others it also able to do so vertically.

    Love this app!
  • No sound recorded for videos

    By Barton1907
    Oddly, the app isn’t recording sound when I shoot videos. Or at least it’s not playing back with studio. The native app works as expected. Pix had permissions to use the mic and sound is turned up on my phone.

    Very good
  • Stale app (no updates) - decent but not great

    A nice camera app - the only one problem is that it takes video if you hold down the shutter button, and is overly sensitive, so even if you press it for a fraction of a second you'll end up with a ton of 4-second videos in your camera roll. This app is rarely updated so it doesn't seem like they'll address it any time soon. The last update, amusingly with a summary stating that they "regularly release updates", was more than a year ago.

    I used this app all the time when I had a 6s and loved it. I just got a new iPhone 11 and Pix doesn’t work nearly as well. The controls at the top of the screen are cut off so it’s almost impossible to toggle the flash. Also, after I take a picture, when I click on the gallery icon to see the picture, the app freezes and shuts down.
