The new Microsoft Pix camera app was named one of the best apps of the year by Time Magazine.

Microsoft touts Pix as being a better camera app than what comes standard on your iPhone. Microsoft states “It is a bit like having a pro photographer inside your camera – tweaking settings, selecting the best shots, and enhancing them on the fly.”

Key features include automatic face recognition with optimization, automatic selection of the best image in a burst, auto detect movement for live image looping .

A fun feature is the ability to apply artistic style to your photos. You can easily increase or decrease the intensity of the effect. This is a fun thing to do for social media posts or to use for Birthday or Christmas cards.

In my side-by-side comparison I found Microsft Pix to have a better zoom.  Microsoft Pix is for iOS only (which, I find kind of ironic. 🙂  )
