Google Play edition camera app now available for download


If you run a non Google Play edition device (read: pretty much all of us) you can now download the extracted Camera and Gallery APK (which is updated from the Android 4.2 version) and try it on your device.

Posted by WinDroidGuy at XDA-Developers, the camera app itself is quite unusual in that it seems to have been engineered to work far better on a wide range of devices than it has in the past, which we suspect might point to a future Play Store release.

UI wise I still find it rather quirky and the image quality may well fall shy of the manufacturer provided application on many devices, but it's worth a download if only to have a play and to get access to Photosphere.

Head on over to XDA-Developers to download and let us know how you get on!
