Apple says the camera on the iPhone 4S is quick. Well, quicker, anyway. You still have to launch the app, then take a photo. Sometimes it's super fast. Other times, it's so slow you miss your chance to take a picture of the Yeti that just ran off with your backpack. Next time, capture that thieving Bigfoot with an app that takes a photo right when it launches. Plus, sync music from DropBox and download YouTube videos on your iPhone, all in today's app deals.

iOS: Media Center ∞ - $1

It has ∞ in the name. I'd say that's a bit pompous, but the app does just about everything. It's a browser, download manager, file manager, media player, and an office and photo viewer. The app has a laundry list of file types it'll read, and you can use it to download YouTube videos. For a buck, you can't go wrong. Dropped from $2 to $1. [Appsylum]
