    Your article says that this app has been optimized for iPhone, but when I go to download it, the app store tells me that it is only available on iPad.

    The developer’s application works on both iPhone and iPad. Here is the direct link for the iPhone app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/procam-2/id730712409?ls=1&mt=8

    Thanx for the link, Nick. For some reason last night when I followed the link in this article, it took me to the App Store and then proceeded to tell me that the app was only available on iPad. However, today when I tried the same thing, I was able to install ProCam XL2. It seems pretty cool so far, for free to boot.
