What Simply HDR Could Do Better
HDR is nothing new to digital photography. The native iPhone Camera app has an HDR feature, as do many dedicated point-and-shoots and system cameras.
Simply HDR can shoot true HDR photos if you're capturing them within the app. But the HDR effects applied to the images are just digital filters, not much different than Intagram's faux-film effects. It can't take a photo from your camera roll and magically re-shoot the scene at a few different exposures. So the app's name is slightly misleading.
Worth a Download?
The selection of effects is quite good, and even if they aren't actually HDR. If you're looking for a cheap app to fill out your photography folder, it's pretty solid. But if you already have several photo editors that you're comfortable with, Simply HDR won't displace your favorites.
