What's the best camera app for the iPhone?

I have an iPhone 6s Plus, which has become pretty much my only camera for the last several months. I actually like it a lot and have been learning to get some photos out of it that I really like. However, I'd like to have more control over the camera settings than I get from the default app. Is there an app that does this well? [more inside]

What iPhone USB Lighting cables do you recommend?

It's time for us to replace a lot of iPhone cables in the house and car that are of various lengths. The current ones became twisty and tears are starting appear in them. I'm hoping to find some cables in 3, 6 and 10 feet lengths that I don't have to replace every year. Or is that an impossible dream?

I like to listen to the same podcasts as my girlfriend while going for walks, but using a cable splitter and wired headphones is pretty frustrating.

My iphone 6 headphone jack has got intermittent audio weirdness regardless of different known good headphones plugged into it.

iPhone dictation - a couple of small frustrations

I dictate my text messages, but there are a couple of things I'm finding tricky to do! 1) I'd like to say "etc", something I say a lot, but if I say "etcetera" it writes it out in full. 2) I'd like to say "idk" and not have it render in capitals! I can theoretically do this with "no caps idk" but that just becomes "i DK".

iPhone file management, in-phone or on a Windows computer

I need to manage my iPhone files, as I recently ran out of space when trying to take some more photos. I have all my photos backed up, but iTunes on my Windows laptop doesn't (appear) to help me, as I can only manage audio, podcasts and video, and deleting photos on my iPhone is time consuming. Bonus points: all-around photo managing/ tagging software that can also manage iPhone photos. [more inside]

Landscape only iPhone text editor

I like typing in landscape but browsing in portrait. Unlocking the orientation means it turns sideways whenever I lie down. I'd really like a landscape-only text editor. Plain as you like. Markdown and Dropbox support a bonus! I have a 6 Plus, iOS 9.

Apple Lightning Charger cable that won't wear out in a few weeks?

When I got my iPhone, it came with a Lightning charger cable that went almost a year before I had to hold it at a certain angle in order to keep my iPhone charging.

Please suggest setups and options using the resources we have or cheap peripherals (<$100) that would make our TVing satisfying. [more inside]

iPerseids?

Any advice for taking good photographs of the night sky with an iPhone 6? I want to photos of the Perseids meteor shower, but I'd rather not bring along my "real" camera, tripod, etc. What's the most I can do, with the least amount of additional gear? Apps are good; things that increase weight are bad.

iOS app that has historical weather data

I have the best weather app, Dark Skies. I am looking for an app that will show me historical weather data by day, or something close to it. My ideal app would show me today, the record temps, and then just historical data for the date. E.g., the temp last year, the year before, in 1964, etc. I'm most interested in temperature data, but other stuff like precipitation would be great too. I feel like some enterprising soul must have made an app like this.

Which unlocked phone to buy in the US for use in Israel?

I'd like to buy a phone for around $250 or less that I can use now as well as with a new SIM card from an Israeli carrier when I move there this fall. Would the Moto G4 Plus allow me to do that? Is that a decent option? An older iPhone? Other? I'm open to anything Android or iOS, as long as I can post to Instagram and play Pokemon Go. :)

What do i want on my iPhone 6 before several long international flights?

Im seeking suggestions for games or any apps to download before taking an upcoming trip. I will have a couple f 15+ hour flights, several shorter ones and plenty of time stuck in a car in traffic (although I should have data service and will certainly have more entertaining things to look at for the road portions of the journeys). I'm not opposed to spending some money but I am not looking to shell out a ton of cash on games/apps which I will tire of immediately.

Best way to photograph paintings with iPhone

Hey iPhonographers, I need to take a bunch of photos of paintings (6x4 feet) and drawings (18x10 inches) with my iPhone. How can I get close to taking professional shots? The setting for the large paintings will be outdoors, and I will have a helper to hold the art vertical. The drawings can be flat indoors, but domestic lighting. I can buy a few items (like a tripod) but not an expensive light kit. I have an iPhone 5.
