Appy birthday: A brief history of the App Store's first 10 years

If you're using a Dual Camera iPhone with add-on lenses, the app lets you manually select which of the two cameras you'd like to shoot through.

Part of the problem is that we don't yet fully understand how smartphones are changing our habits and our brains.

Most Android phones have manual control options in their respective smartphone app, but Apple does not provide this control on the iPhone.

The initial marketplace, which comprised just 500 apps, has grown to more than 2 million, according to The Verge. Four months later though, Apple changed its policy to allow IAPs in free apps and games, which helped kick off whole the "freemium" revolution.

A decade after it launched, the App Store holds more than two billion apps and is responsible for making the Services category - which also includes Apple Music, iTunes, and Apple Pay - the second largest contributor to Apple's revenue, second only to iPhones.

That expanding view of the business is reminiscent of why Moment even became a business - to give mobile photographers different fields of view through their phones. Just a fair warning, though, that they primarily focus on the iOS app which does now offer several features not yet found on the Android app.

If you're interested in downloading Moment's Pro Camera app for yourself, you can purchase it right now for Android from the Play Store for $1.99. In his keynote, Jobs told the audience, "And so, you can write unbelievable Web 2.0 and Ajax apps that look exactly and behave exactly like apps on the iPhone".

The existing Do Not Disturb mode is getting a revamp too, with a more limited lock screen mode to use at night, and the option to leave Do Not Disturb switched on until you leave a certain location or a particular calendar event ends.

Barros called the Pro Camera App one of the hardest products to build, but the company wanted to start with something that was on par with what it's offering with lenses. It should be easier to separate the pointless notifications from ones that you actually need to see. There are also charts showing how often you're picking up your phone, and how many notifications you're getting from which apps.

While all of that sounds great, Moment's Android app is lagging a bit behind.

After you're done, you can take a screenshot and share it with your friends or coworkers.

Third-party apps for maintaining focus and reducing distraction have been around for a long time, of course.

The smartphone has been the biggest innovation of our lives.
