Q: Is there an application for Windows Phone 8 to help take better pictures?

A: I found that often I click the button to take a picture slightly too late, or too early, missing the best picture. I found a great application, BLINK, from Microsoft Research that actually takes a whole series of pictures before and after you press the shutter button. You can then browse through to pick the best picture for the moment, instead of having just the one picture. It's available at the Windows Phone store and I definitely recommend checking it out if you're a bit slow on the button like me.
