Ice Cream Sandwich is one cookie not all android users can get their little paws on. But that does not mean that you can not enjoy some of its perks. ICS did not come with just a sleek blue and black look, it came along with a lot of new features, such as NFC activation for the Android Beam etc. One thing the new Android version changes of note is the camera app.
The stock camera application is equipped with a easy-to-use interface and brings with it a number of new functions. Functions like tap-to-focus, integrated support for 180 degree panoramic shots, built-in file sharing options and the shutter lag of previous android version stock camera app’s has gone completely, thus zero shutter lag.
Well now these features are not only for the users having ICS but for those running Froyo or higher, thanks to Moblynx users with Gingerbread, Honeycomb or even Froyo can enjoy the experience of shooting pics on an Ice Cream Sandwich device. The app called “Camera ICS” is a replica of the original, and has almost all of it aspects. Aspects such as multiple color effects, picture quality settings, custom focus and panoramic shots.
One of the best new features is that you have the option of shutting down the shutter sound, so if you want to ever take pictures without the other person knowing, then this little option is just for you.
Camera ICS is available of the Honeycomb version of Android as well, which helps in taking time-lapse videos. If your smart phone has a front facing camera then easy switching between the camera’s is made possible. The app has an extended settings menu where you get options like scene mode etc. Though all the options are not available, but these are considered as glitches an will be corrected via future updates.
The app comes in two versions the NON-AD version that is for $1.31 called Camera ICS+, while some ads will annoy you on the free version. The apps can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, for your convenience here are the links:
