Google has released more than a few stock Android apps into the Play Store, but the Camera app wasn’t one of them. Good news folks!! They just released today. It’s essentially the same Camera app found on Nexus devices, so that means you can get the stock Android camera experience with any device. Plus, you get Photo Sphere too. With this release, they did add one update, which is a lens blur effect.
Unfortunately this app is only for those running Android 4.4 KitKat or higher. We’re not sure if it will open up to users Jelly Bean and below, but we certainly hope so.
Hit the break for the full features list, screenshots, and download links.
- Photo Spheres for immersive 360º views

- 100% viewfinder for getting the maximum resolution from the sensor (no dropped pixels)

- Works on phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat
