Camera for Android
In modern days, almost every phone comes with a camera, which has pre-installed basic features. However, the default set of functions may be insufficient for the quality of photos that a phone user may expect. Thankfully, we have a choice of various camera apps that can make difference and help enhance the effect of the captured moment. Camera for Android app has more than 10,000,000 downloads so let’s investigate whether it’s worth paying attention to.
Camera for Android offers a clean interface loaded with features and settings. There are multiple shot modes and it comes with photo editing tools for applying effects such as for example, color transformations. Navigating the app is easy and all you need to do is just click on the camera icon. Obviously, you can take advantage of a typical camera, video, and panorama mode. The app is compatible with both phone and tablet.
White balance settings can be adjusted so, for example, you can choose from Auto, Fluorescent, Incandescent, Daylight, and even Cloudy modes. Screen mode settings such as Play, Action, Sunset, and Night are also available. We liked that volume keys are configurable and the absence of shutter sound is very handy. The countdown timer is also useful even though this feature wasn’t expected in the app. You can pinch to zoom and get widescreen pictures. The upsetting part was that the app asked for permission to phone contacts and we found this a bit intrusive and, overall, unnecessary.
If you’re an Android owner looking for a minimalist interface with pro-level features, this app may be for you. Casual users will find this app practical because things aren’t overcomplicated with various settings for professional photographers.
Ease of use
There are many options but even if you are not a professional photographer, you should be able to figure out how to apply the available features. We would classify the app as user-friendly but the developers continue adding new features so we can’t predict how professional and easy-to-use the app can be in the future.

Good for Casual Photography
We liked the quality of pictures even if it’s certainly not as high as it could be when photos are made with professional equipment. We would highly recommend this app if not a mandatory request to access contacts. If this issue doesn’t bother you, go ahead and download the app since this is a great camera with great features, which is fully capable of producing quality images.
