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.



  • Not optimized for phones with notches

    By atraver
    The app hides certain controls and text behind the notch in iPhones X and beyond. It’s surprising Apple even approved it, having had apps rejected in the past for exactly this reason. Guess Microsoft gets a free pass on this one while smaller developers are punished. It’s a shame with all of the resources available to MS, they haven’t been able to hire a mobile UI designer. Oh well, at least the app takes photos?
  • Fantastic photos

    It’s not speedy, but when I want to take just 1 photo and get the best lighting and exposure, I open Pix
  • Can a raw image setting be added?

    By skateXitXup
    I love the app, but me as a photographer prefer raw images. I prefer this so no quality is lost in my pictures over time, thanks Microsoft.
  • Good camera app. I like this!

  • Needs to be reworked for 11 Pro

    By FreopSD
    Controls are off the screen or in places that can’t be touched
  • No volume on videos!

    By CEOMONEY300
    Whenever I take a video I usually have voice n volume Now there's no voice n volume? Whats going on?
  • Love this app

    By cian chambliss
    It runs great on the xs max (it worked but occasionally crashed on my prior phone which was a 6plus). I use it pretty much exclusively for the panorama feature , and the one thing I would change about the app is to add a setting to pick the default mode for the camera when the app is open (ie allow users to make the mode they use the most the default mode).
  • Don’t use enough.. need to improve

    By Bored in NYS
    This app presents some interesting choices with which to experiment . I learn more each time I use it.
  • Pix Comics not working!

    By wind2daside
