Top 5 Camera Apps for Android


There was a time when people used to keep a separate budget out of their expenses just to buy a Camera to capture their memories. The era moved from those days of black and white pictures and came to the trend of digital cameras. Cameras in mobile phones were introduced somewhere in the 21st century, but those were not powerful enough to fulfill the needs. With the arrival of Android OS, the cameras in the newly introduced(at that time) smartphone started getting better and also started taking over the trend of digital cameras, that helped the people to minimize that separate budget and enjoy plenty of features packed up in just one small device.

So, Android smartphones are common now a days, whether they are high budget, or low budget, everyone around keeps one today. Android smartphones have crossed the camera up to 20.3 Megapixel in today’s date. Although there is a stock camera app, which is packed up with different features and scene modes, but to enhance the camera effects a little more and to expand the features, there is a number of camera apps available on the Play Store. I’ve compiled up 5 best camera apps available on the Google Play Store. Have a look through these apps and choose for your device and enjoy capturing your precious memories.
