Camera Noir, the recently released black and white photography app for iPhone, has received an important crash-fixing update. Available to download in the App Store for $1.99, Camera Noir 1.0.1 should now run smoothly on an iPhone (iPhone 3GS and above) or iPod touch (fourth- and fifth-generation). While Camera Noir received countless positive reviews following its launch in the App Store on June 5, a problematic bug meant that for certain users, the app crashed repeatedly upon launch. It's since been discovered that disabling an iDevice's Location Services resulted in the crash, and Camera Noir's developers have updated the app accordingly correcting this issue.

Camera Noir is currently available to download in the App Store for $1.99. For more information, be sure to check out our review of the application.
