With an update today, Camera+ has become the first third-party photo app to take advantage of the iPhone 5’s low-light boost mode.

The mode boosts the maximum ISO from 800 all the way to 3,200. That two-stop increase will add some noise to your photographs, but enables shutterbugs to capture some impressive low-light images like seen in the above sample images.

Version 3.5.1 of the app also adds in the ability to share higher quality photos to Facebook.

Camera+ has consistently been one of the most popular camera app options for iPhone users. But it hasn’t been without some controversy. After adding in an Easter egg that allowed users to take photos with the volume buttons, Apple pulled the app for more than four months before it returned in late 2010.

Since then, the app has continued to be refined and sold its 8 millionth copy on its second anniversary earlier this summer.

Camera+ is made for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded in the App Store for $0.99.

Developer tap tap tap also recently released a separate iPad version of the app that can be downloaded in the App Store for $0.99. We liked the tablet version so much that it won our AppAdvice App of the Week Award on Monday.
