There have been tons of rumors and great anticipation of the Moto X. It seems that everywhere you turn, especially on Google Plus, there’s a new nugget of info! But let’s be honest with ourselves – we Geeks love this kind of stuff, don’t we?
Just as it seemed Chromecast took all the attention away from the daily Moto X-ing, Android Police got their hands on the Moto X camera app and shared it with the rest of us! They’re just cool like that!
I’ve installed it on my Galaxy Nexus and must admit that, even with the current limitations, it’s a pretty cool camera app. It won’t over write your existing camera app as long as you’re not using a Motorola phone (in fact, it won’t install on a Motorola phone). It will create an app icon that looks exactly like your current camera icon, so you may want to separate them. Not everything works on it, such as Panorama, HDR, and Slow Motion mode, but it’s still pretty cool.
I specifically like touching anywhere on the screen to take a single shot, or holding on the screen to take a burst of shots. Also, zooming in and out is a simple matter of swiping up and down on the screen.
If you’d like to give it a try, I’ve made the apk available here –
Enjoy! Thanks once again to our friends at Android Police!
