Google on Wednesday released a standalone camera app for devices running Android 4.4 and above, bringing with it some great features. The app itself introduces a lovely layout to a wide range of Android devices, and employs the side drawer concept present in many mobile apps today. Everything is pretty straightforward, making for a minimal yet powerful shooting experience.
Google Camera mostly focuses on the UI experience, aiming to get out of a user’s way while they snap photos of friends and family. But the app also comes loaded with some cool features, including Photo Sphere, Lens Blur (for creating shallow depth of field), Panorama mode with high resolution and a 100-percent viewfinder.
If you aren’t satisfied with the stock camera app on your phone, Google Camera might be a good alternative, though you’ll need a phone (or tablet) running Android 4.4 KitKat and above to take advantage of it.
