CamFun is a Universal full app template with custom camera controller, collage frames and editing tools to enhance your pictures as you wish.
Plus, it has a nice feature called Wall Of Fame, which works with Parse SDK and may get your app popular on the App Store because of its challenging original system. Pictures that get more likes on the Wall Of Fame will move automatically on the top of it, and all users can check received likes on their own Profile screen, log in, sign up for a new account and have fun by showcasing their works to the other subscribed people!

CamFun is very easy to customize, Storyboard, Universal, native XCode project, Swift language, Parse SDK hosted on back{4}app

How to remove AdMob banner ads

Check this video out to see how to remove the code that shows AdMob banners: Keep in mind that you must repeat the shown steps for every .swift file that contains this line on the top:

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Xcode to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE.

Important Disclaimer: We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the AppStore (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
