There are thousands of apps out there available to Smartphone users. Some useful, some not so. Some of the most useful and exciting have come in the form of camera apps. Smartphones have a lot of great features and most will typically have a camera. Depending on the model and phone brand, that camera can be anything from basic to almost stand alone quality. More and more pixels added to cameras have enabled crystal clear images. Developers have created software which has taken the functionality of built in cameras to a whole new level. In this post, we take a look at some of the best of the bunch in this fast growing category of apps.
