|Taken inside Pic!|
Thankfully, whatever low-light mojo is going on under the hood, is the default for 3rd party developers. For fun I also tried posterizing it to see how the noise looked, and the "random dithered" nature of the noise has a cool look to my eye.

Just so my blog doesn't devolve into a Apple Fanboy festival, note that as an App Extension our app often crashes in the real phone but is fine with all the simulators. Not surprising for a new feature (and in our case a new language: Swift), but it appears this is Apple's bug. We eagerly await iOS 8.01. But the app seems to work great as an app, so far from a wipe-out. The other two apps with photo extensions we are aware of (Camera+ and Fragment) are faring a little better, and it would be nice to see if they are written in Swift or Objective-C. Further if you search the Apple Store for "Pic!" it doesn't find our app. Talk about an app discovery problem! So search for "Pixio" or use this link.
