One of the features that iPhone owners enjoy most about their device is its impressive camera. While there are many Android devices that offer a great quality as well, Apple has excelled in offering a powerful camera that captures images with incredible clarity. The problem is that even though the camera itself is very good and it offers useful auto-focus functions, it lacks features. The camera app doesn’t include a timer, which means that it is really difficult to set up the camera to take a picture at the right time. Even though there are some apps that you can get to add expand the features of your iPhone’s camera, if you have a jailbroken iPhone you can enjoy additional options. There are many camera tweaks available in Cydia, which will help you to get the most out of your iPhone’s camera. Here are some of the best tweaks that are available in Cydia. These work with iOS 6 and are also compatible with iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.
