Best Android camera app not by Google

By Updated on

If you are an avid camera fan using an Android device, you probably already have heard about Google’s recently released Google Camera app for Android. It offers users some great new camera features, but only if you are running on Android 4.4 Kitkat.

That means that until Google updates their app to support Jelly Bean which may never come, many users are left without access to the new Google Camera app, which is a shame.

Fortunately, there are plenty of other camera applications to look for on the Google Play Store, if you are looking for a change and not entirely impressed by the default camera app on your Android device.

Those of you who enjoy adding filters to your photos after taking may want to check out Camera Zoom FX for Android. This is not a free app as it costs $2.99, but for the price you’ll get a vast array of features including multiple filter options to make your photos look very professional.

Camera Zoom FX also supports tablets.

The app was also voted one of the best of 2013 just to give you an idea of how good it is, while there are also over 40,000 5-star ratings on the Google Play listing as well if you are worried about spending money for nothing.

Alternatively, those looking for a different option may want to look elsewhere at the Camera360 Ultimate app for Android. Again, this is a very popular app which may consumers prefer over the stock camera apps and you’ll be pleased to hear that it is available to download for free.

Camera360 Ultimate appears to be the go-to choice for many Android users, just look at the review page again for evidence of this – over 1 million reviews, with over 800,000 5-star ratings just to give you an idea.

These are just a few alternatives, but usually it will come down to taste and what you prefer personally. If you are unable to use Google’s new Camera app for whatever reason, let us know if you have found an alternative that you would recommend to others to try.
