3 Top-Rated Android Photography Apps

The core capabilities of some of the newer Android phones can capture some pretty awesome pictures without tinkering with software. However if you want more control over ISO settings, zoom levels, and custom effect you will like how great these photography apps can make your pictures look.

Camera ZOOM FX

Few Android photo apps have more features than Camera Zoom FX. You can refine the camera by adjusting auto focus, white-balance. You can also control shooting modes with a timer, or activate the shutter by voice, a clap or a shout. Other shutter modes include burst for taking multiple shots and collage for putting multiple shots into one photo.

Once the photo is taken you can process the image with:

  • 10 ready-made presets: Diana, Retro, Holga 35mm, Toy Camera…
  • 20 Color FX: vintage, lomo, cinematic, funky, pencil…
  • 13 Frames: thin, rounded, lens, polaroid, filmreel…
  • 6 Vignette Surrounds: heavy, invert, spotlight…
  • 12 Distort FX: fisheye, mosaic, twirl…
  • 9 Mirror FX and 3 Tilt-shift FX
  • Crop to any size: 3×8, square, instant, 6×4…
  • Digi composites (photoshop style overlays)
  • Add geotag/exif tags
  • Create stunning collages: e.g. 2×2 passport style combination shots

If the list of features isn’t impressive enough you can add more features by downloading free packs that contain: fun props, frames, famous ‘buddies’ in your pictures, composites (paper overlays), shutter animations, scary Halloween ghouls and ghosts. 



Camera360 is also a competent and feature-rich Android photography/camera app that has similar features to the other apps in this roundup. This camera app is my favorite Android camera apps and was include in my roundup of best Android apps for 2012.  It is among my favorites because it’s easy to use even though it has tons of features and settings you can play around with to adjust saturation, exposure, ISO, image stabilization, burst mode etc.

Even if you don’t have the best camera on your device, or the best lighting conditions, if you play around with Camera360’s settings you will be able to capture some surprising good photos. After you have captured the photo a carousel is shown at the bottom that previews how certain post-processing effects can enhance the picture. 

PicSay Pro – Photo Editor
