    fb1-horzFrontback, the increasingly popular dual-sided photo app for iOS, has added tap-to-focus and photo flipping features, in response to feedback, while it has removed the need to register to test out the service.

    The latter change is a little misleading, since you’ll need to register to save and share your first photo — as I found out — but you can at least play around with this two-sided take on photo apps without committing your life and soul to a username.

    The new camera features help take better photos when close up, in low light, high contrast or other conditions, and allow photos to be flipped to their mirror image — which is useful when they include text that’s initially back to front.

    And, yes of course, the app now supports iOS 7 like a bazillion others that are pushing out updates today.
