    The first of our best iPhone apps for January 2011 is this cool camera app called gyroCam. Basically, it enhances your iPhone camera by helping you frame a straight shot or automatically level photos in real time as you shoot. Using the iPhone's gyro and accelerometer, this app frames a level shot from any scene. You can choose from a clip mode that cuts out the level frame or fill mode which zooms the level frame back to full size. gyroCam is great for capturing action scenes, macro, self-portraits, scene composition and situations.
