Worked great until a couple of days ago, now does not save pics! Ok until the latest Lollipop update then fail! Since the recent Lollipop update I have found that it does not save any pics at all. I have lost loads of pics I took at a wedding yesterday, they seem to have vanished into thin air!! It used to work brilliantly so it must be something to do with this recent update. I hope they fix it soon, but I'll never get those pics back!

Vladimir Bogdanov

Great alternative for the built in camera! And the developer is very responsive, which is a huge plus.

jon cox

Works good for me! I like the short cuts for things like night mode, ... its sets things up for me instantly. I realy like how the developers are working hard to address any issues people have!. 5 stars!!!. Galaxy phone.

Filipe dos Santos

Bad quality pictures At the beggining worked fine but after 2-3 updates the built in app of my moto g lte started to work better. The problem with the reds that were known to exist in my phone started to appear in the photos taken with this app (single shot DRO On or off, best photo, or Dhr) the face pics all have this artificial and "redish" thing. Not only faces but pics in general, making it total unusable. Also the app doesn't focus as it used to be when first purchased. And for some reason autobackup doesn't work with app

Abhishek Jain

Good but needs fixes I am on nexus 5 running lollipop 5.1. Camera is good takes high quality pictures, much better than stock. But it needs serious bug fixes. Sometimes when I change between front and rear camera the app hangs. Sometimes it even makes front camera unusable until a reboot. Otherwise it is a great camera app.

Byung Kim

Not the prettiest but it works. The app has some nice features and seems to work fairly well. I do wish it had better user interface. It's a bit clunky and in my opinion a bit ugly. I bought the app in hopes that they will eventually update the interface.

Jean Lai Kan

A very versatile camera DRO with a single shot give amazing results. Night shot is very useful to get a good picture in dark conditions.This is impossible to do with the stock camera. I chose ABC instead of another app. because Dev. allowed me to try before purchase.

Alex Mielczarek

Wtf I can't take photos since the last update. Somehow it isn't possible to save to a custom folder neither to sd card. What happened ? everything was fine so far. But now I get a message about android limitations. I don't even have kitkat! I'm confused; please help

Troy Stengel

One of the best camera applications I've tried I just love this application and purchased the full version, as a result. I am running Android v. Kit Kat on my Alcatel Onetouch Fierce 2, a modest model with a 5MP camera. This software has been very reliable and I haven't experienced any problems, at this point. The application really maximizes my camera's hardware capabilities and the filters, effects, etc. are pretty cool.

Al Has

Better than stock I compared stock camera photos to this apps photos, and these produce noticeably better photos. However, the VSCO camera app did edge this one. Since that ones free, I'm a bit disappointed.

Mark H

Better than stock camera. This app takes much better pics on my Moto X than the stock camera app does. Especially in low light. This company's support is terrible. I never received any replies to questions. The app had issues for months before it was finally fixed. I was close to uninstalling it.

Mark Tenet

One of the best 3rd party I've used so far The DRO feature is nice and works better than most gimmicks on other apps. Things that would help would be dedicated video button instead of having to switch to the video recorder option. Also it would be nice if it started up faster. It takes a tad too long in my opinion. Great camera app otherwise

Mark Sumners

Great camera app Had an issue after the last update where the camera would simply not take a picture. Full reinstall completely fixed the problem. Now is better than ever.

Ronaldinho Xinachtli

More or less video camera still get stuck, even with the upgrade :( I even have to force close to use photo camera again.

David White

Great camera app, but... Since updating to lollipop 5.1, the app is constantly using GPS services in the background which has drained over 5% of by battery. Also, the front camera is very grainy and over exposed.

Hasanul Islam

Dropped from 5 star to 3. Shutter speeds slower than my default camera app. Sometimes it takes extra time to load the app itself. Update 3/4/15: photos little noisier than the default camera with the same settings. Sometimes it takes few moments to save photos in the darker conditions than the stock camera app. The only things that useful for me is its handy shortcuts. That's all. Switching to stock cam again.

Lazaros Kourtis

Good, but not ideal Xpera SP, kitkat 4.4.4 CM11. Unfortunatelly, when AF lock enabled in timelaps , focus is changes after 1st frame. Also,why time is burned-in always in photos although I have not selected such? Lots of options and settings to choose otherwise, good picture quality.

Rex Cowan

Great feature Why doesn't my slr do this? I love the hdr feature, takes great sunset shots combining three shots at different exposure. But I had to Google what it was so a more descriptive name or a youtube video explaning how to make the app work for you might help.

Marcel Dingemanse

Unstable in stock touchwiz 4.4.4 note 4 Switching from video to camera mode not possible! App says unable to switch to camera......every other camera app works like this but not this app? That makes it unusable! Also it makes my samsung camera app useless after that and have to restart the phone. Same thing happened with s4. Non rooted note 4. After 30-3-15 still the same bug!

Hemanshu Rukadikar

Cool but... It's a really good app but the panorama needs to be waayy better.. It's way to jumpy and unstable..

Karl Winetzki Alvino

Its a really good câmera app, but the photos I take don't save. The developers of this app should really fix this!

Andrew Manley

Best camera app Very good app. Tried quite a few and this was the best. Easy to use, very good HDR and night modes.

Mihail Ivanchev

No RAW mode on Lollipop 5.1 I have a Nexus 5 running Lollipop 5.1 and RAW mode seems to be missing. I turn it on, but I still see the Hystogram in Single shot mode, so I guess it is not supported on 5.1. Maybe I'm missing something? EDIT: Thanks for the response. Changing to 5 stars for the great app :)

Dale M

Registered version broke functions This is driving me nuts. No matter what I do, I cant get grids to display, and even worse, pressing the lower left circle doesnt bring up any gallery for review. Disappointed :( (Galaxy Note 2)

David Smith

No longer works. I purchased this app for my Motorola tablet, it worked well to start with until the recent update. Tried a full reinstall as recommended but still will not run! It simply loads for approximately 2 seconds then crashes and returns to the previous screen.

Greg Palladini

ZTE Warp Sync » HTC One M7 Awesome Camera App,All you can ask for,& even more than I need... 5*****

Amro Alkhafaf

Where is HDR video? Edited:I have found HDR video. It seems the feature also exist in the free version unlike what's mentioned. Please, if the unlocked version doesn't add any feature then you can just rename it to donate version ,and I will be happy to be a donor , and to avoid confusion.

Rick Bersani

Working Good After Update This camera app is once again my favorite. The developer did a fantastic job with the new update and this is now working well on lollipop. Thank you for keeping this updated and making my camera a better camera.

Sander Zhang

No fast exposure No fast exposure change in HDR configuration. So HDR Camera+ did not fully grow up into A Better Camera.

Vino Frost

Really a better camera It easily replaced my stock camera app ^_^ and it has everything I need.

Calvin Lai

Night mode Using video frames to reduce noise in night mode is freaking brilliant! I use it all the time now! Well worth the money

Benitot Ah-kye

Best camera app out there Much better than the stock camera app on my z2

Al Alvera

AE-lock STILL not working in last update Installed last update on March 31, 2015. AE-LOCK not working, problem not solved. Please try to lock AE, move the camera and then click on screen to take the shoot. The AE will unlock, camera will evaluate the new exposure and the picture will be taken. This is not OK. The AE-LOCK icon remain locked (white button) but the AE function will remain unlocked.

Charlie Tann

I love it I am surprised this app doesn't have at least a million downloads. It is much better than stock camera. It works on my ZTE Flash and my Asus Padfone X mini phones.

Stefan Hoerzer

Great It would be cool if it could film in slow motion

Teresa Bowman

Just no. I bought the full version and unlocked all the wonderful accessories to just learn the hard way that it continues to freeze and have errors occur. I'm extremely disappointed and am now uninstalling this app and considering it a loss. Just saddened by this situation.

Miguel Coelho

Bugs and terrible support. It's still not saving night pictures. Support is also terrible. You report a bug and when you check your ticket, it's closed and the bugs are not fixed. Edit: no, almalense it's not fixed. The one star rating will stay.

Jonathon Bevers

Has green blocks Half my pics are green and when in low light. I turn the flash on and it takes pics that look like their completely washed out by the flash. Can't see anything but flash. Stock camera works fine. Nexus 6, 5.1 Have tried this on earlier android system updates.

Vlatko Ljubic

The functionality is great but.. The user interface is horrible. It looks 5 years old. And for the price the app demands, there is no excuse for this. Improve the aesthetics and you get 5 stars from me.

Justin Enodolomwanyi

I just bought this camera. .and decided to take some pics with it..but I couldn't find sny the pics I took. .Please find a solution on it pls.

Максим Парфенов

Не работает на Acer A500, doesnt work on Acer A500. Amazing app for my Samsung Galaxy S2, unleashes lot of detail in all modes. Thanks to authors, paid with no hesitation. Best camera app for android imho. Must have if u want get all from ur camera and more. Great job over older HDR Camera - no details smearing, picture looks like its a single shot. Wow night mode...much light! Sadly, it doesnt work on my Acer A500, 4 stars overall.

Денис Фоломешкин

Sony Xperia Z1 Soon we'll get Android 5.0 Lollipop update on whole Xperia Z series smartphones. We need manual focus support, please!!! The best camera ever!

Richard Auty

Pretty Good This app has slightly improved my photo quality over the stock camera app but agree with other user comments about the ui , the swipe down access to the menu is a bit of a pain much better with button, also the Hardware shutter button option to activate the camera doesn't work but apart from these few gripes its better than the stock camera and is my camera app of choice. (Huawei P7)

Edward Olanow

Good camera app with okay interface Multi clicks required to adjust settings. Hate the swipe down for photo options as a button would have been easier. But, that said, it's a good camera app and UPDATE: devs have improved the interface a decent bit. Icons fill screen better and are better organized but still wish icons looked a little more professional. Anyway, adding 1 star.

Lonnie Williams

Ambivalent A feature-rich camera with a lack-luster interface. Though feature-rich it feels clunky and unintuitive. For quick pictures I still find myself going back to my phone's stock camera for decent photos. In side-by-side shot comparisons A Better Camera is only "better" about half the time. While it sometimes pulls out colors and details my stock camera can miss it does so with a grainy sort of interpolation that I find unsatisfying. The interface is truly unappealing for an app that cost me $3.99 to unlock.

Adiyel Israel

Has good features, but I have a serious issue After using it briefly then un-installing, then giving it another chance, I can no longer see any difference for my device (Z3 compact) from the unpaid version. Now I can no longer get a refund. I feel like I paid for nothing, as the key features I wanted don't even work any different than the free version :-(

Kevin Schütz

will be uninstalled. got enough. First bug was that the button for changing face<-> frontcam was broken. Now this app doesnt allows me to change the flash to automatic, means, now is the button for Automatic flash broken. I dont like broken buttons.

Zeus SH

Great camera, but i need more larger, REAL 16:9 resolution (like the stock camera's 3264x1840), in my HTC One X. Now using the largest available "16:9" mode (3.9 MPix, 2592x1520) i get black bars in the two side of standard wide screens. After 3.33 update i get errors on my HOX in night and smart shot modes. When i using night mode, i get ONLY 3264x2448 picture with ALL selected resolution, or the software exiting without any message before the 8 exposition finished. ps: the phone is extremly heating while using this camera app...

vasilis frag

Time lapse? I like the app very much. But i still can't find out how photo time lapse work. I've tried many different settings, from 3 seconds to 5 minutes, but it only takes one photo and then nothing happens. And i have a "0" on the right top corner of the screen. Video time lapse works allthough it would be nice to be able to keep working with the screen off. Also, is there a way to get back the remaining pics indicator in night mode? In hd mode it takes 8 pics. It used to show how many are still to be taken.

Alexander Gordyushin

Last update. Can't focus That's it. How to downgrade? Also 3 stars because it worked fine before.

Alastair Maxwell

Broke Worked prior on phone, on CM lollipop for my model . Just put on update lollipop for my phone. System works great. Camera wouldn't take photos, look like it was, but wouldn't. Uninstalled, cleaned cache and dalvik.just reinstalled, see how it works. Now works. GUI a bit clunky, but happy it has lots of choice and is working.

ramesh n

Cannot record videos Could not record any videos. Kindly help me out in solving this issue

Arnab Sinha Roy

Does not rotate camera after updating. Stuck in front camera. Rotate button not working on droid turbo

Jon Jenkins

Latest update actually broke saving to SD card! Prior to latest update I was able to save to the SD card on my phone using the custom folder option. Now neither the SD card option nor the custom folder option let's me save to the SD card. Worst part is that I took some pictures of my kids playing and didn't realize they weren't getting saved anywhere. Please fix or provide me a link to the previous version as I was very happy with it before the update. By the way, I tried clearing data and even reinstalling the app with no success.

Ron C.

WTF !!! $4.00 and the thing worked one time, now it says camera can't work. And i have to shut my phone off to shut the app down.

Ahmed Al-kaabi

Thanks a lot .. You fixed it .. ? You fixed the force closing with dro effect .. Really you are doing great work .. Please if you can add selfie camera with beauty effects will be amazing .. After that I can use this application all the time .. Thank you again .. You deserve 5 stars ..

Sheila Marie Cardenas

Back camera buttom not working after update Kindly fix back camera option, it is not working after version 3.33 update

Nandan Kulkarni

It's okay It's not exactly user friendly and UI looks outdated

Peter Mills

What is the point..... Why is it that the stock camera app can save to an external sd under kit kat 4.4.2 but A Better Camera can't I think that app developers should lobby Google to remove this stupid limitation, it renders this kind of app almost useless for serious users. Update - still no ability to save to sd card under Kit Kat 4.4.2 although it is now possible if you are lucky enough to have Lollipop 5.x can I get a refund?

Michael Paris

Today update terrible Since the latest update not able to take a photo using kit kat on samsung galaxy note 10.1 2014. The program acts like it will take the phit but does not.

Posta Ufficio

Nice apk, but video resolution 1080p?!

Amit Peri

Worth every penny Lots of great features and still quick and easy to use.

Luke Bagi

Iso? please give me more options for iso?! can someone get back to me on this? why is the options for iso so high? I want 100 iso...

Kevin Dixon

Now save to SD card This is great.

Luca Margaritelli

UI needs update Appreciated finally the possibility to save on external SD. UI needs really a big refresh and injection of material design. Otherwise 5 stars.

Yasaf Volinsky

Stuck ob front camera The app was OK for a while but now it got stuck of the front camera and won't change to back

Daniel Tom

I like it but... I have a bug. When I switch from video to single shot, camera freezes and I get an error: Unable to start camera. I have to restart the app. Please fix this.


This app couldn’t scan the barcode

Ricky Tse zoom mode android 4.2.2 When i take a picture in zoom mode(single shot/normal/AF,the pic not in zoom result and sometime cant take pic,must close and restart the app

Stan Reading

Not just a better camera, but the best camera for Samsung tab S 10.5.

Shivati Starr

Earned that fifth star Way better and can save to SD. Excellent. Changed my review from four to five stars.

Lucan Williams

TIME FOR A NEW UI PLEASE! Material design would be great!

Ken Livesey

Buggy Stuck on front camera, will not change to rear camera. Please fix this, was really good until the recent update.

Michael Flint, SR

Pure crap! Doesn't do what it suppose to!!

Imran Wazeer

Very good

Edmond Thamage


vic dy

Good Better than other camera apps

Vince Leung

RAW format for 1+1 How come after I paid this app and have been waiting for so long, my OnePlus One still can't save RAW format. The phone hardwares are just common brands components, ARMv7 and SONY cam.

Afif Azzazel

Save to sd bug Yup, i can save it to sd, but it won't show in my gallery and can't view the preview within the app. The only way is to browse using file explorer

David Alexander

Now buggy Ever since the last update I've been having issues. I can use for Google hangouts to take pics, and most times I don't get a preview of taken pics. Additionally I've been having issues changing from from to back camera. Going to try to reinstall and will see if it helps.

Jitendra Pastaria

App crashes Kindly check while using timer alapse app crashes down, more than once this happened. Time stamp is best feature can be improve if u add contrast color outline around fonts or if those pixel of font turn to negative it will highlight fonts both in black white image. Stillbimage review takes time.

John R.

Pause for video Pause or stop button from video recording does not work... Nothing happens when i tap. I got premium to do just this and got disappointed... FIXED rezolution was on 2 k and my phone cannot handle - decreased and works! 5 stars!

Kolya Blotski

Please, video filming do nor work at all, also after reinstallation. only stop and go buttons are visible. pushing buttons do not change anything.

Jason Ray Meimban

Still a better camera Best there is, even though i have problems with panorama (does not work) and the video only displays black i hope this patch will fix it. But still the best there is.

Dennis Bareis

Doesn't import it's free app settings. No shortcuts or Widgets. Actually quite unreliable (dies often in different ways = many bugs). Its too easy to accidently switch between video/photo modes and sometimes the shutter doesn't work until you toggle video mode on/off! Nexus 6P front facing camera images are upside down. UNINSTALLING...

Mel Macintyre

The camera part of this app is amazing, it really is. However like others have mentioned the video aspect just doesn't work, sometimes it freezes, or it doesn't save, or it takes so long to process and the file corrupts. Been waiting for a fix for months

Piyush Bhandari

Nexus 6p Cannot take photos if I select the app to start at double tap of lock button. The camera starts, but shutter release key is not displayed. Correct this and 5 ?

Shawn Emerson

Problems switching from photo to video modes still persist. The recent update hasn't fixed the problem. When switching to video, camera image freezes, but other program artifacts (like accelerometer) still work. When switching back to photo, "unable to start camera" appears in front of frozen image. Restarting the app always unfreezes the camera, though, so this problem doesn't truly affect the usability of either mode. I rated 5 stars anyway, because the app is just great. I'm using a Galaxy S2 i777 running unofficial SlimSaber 4.4.4 which is practically bugless.


This could be a great replacement for sucky moto g camera app Interface is not that nice and overcrowded. Unless nicely designed some buttons are nice, rest of the options in sub menus. Look at LG g4, v10 camera app. This can be great.

Warayut Wiwaha

Still waiting for a bug fix. Now, I give fewer star because this update still didn't fix the preview propotion problem. I reported that for a very long time...

Garry van Diggele

Crashes all the time using hardware button xperia z3 It's a shame, the auto focus is extremely slow, hardware button causes crashes (crash report sent many times). Once it finally focuses the pictures are superb but due to extremely slow capture and focus speed (even when pre-focusing) you miss your shots. Burst is extremely slow as well. All issues observed on a Sony xperia z3. Tried to refund but was to late

Steven Palmer

Front camera photos upside down. When taking photos with the front facing camera on the Nexus 6P the pictures are upside down. Tried other photo apps and they are right side up. Uninstalled and reinstalled and problem persists. Rest of the app works well.

Michael B.P.Christiantoro

slow.. too slow to be true.. it takes 10 sec to save picture on ext card on note 3. actually my ext card still have huge empty size.. fix it! because it ruined my moment.. useless cam

Tom Martin

Above all the rest On the Samsung Galaxy S6, this is head and shoulders above all the other high-end camera apps. Not only is it full featured, but in close and careful comparison with other apps like Manual Camera, FV-5, Snap Camera, etc. the clarity, low noise, color richness, tone quality and overall quality of the file is noticeably superior. My only regret is that the Superior image option and RAW capture are not compatible on the Galaxy S6. I hope this is remedied SOON.

Mitch Lambert

Superior control Was completely discouraged about the performance of my 13 megapixel Moto X 2nd gen. camera..... Until I found this camera app. This camera app has more control than you would typically need for a mobile camera. So if your Android camera is seriously disappointing, like mine was....... It's not the camera.... Its the app! Download this and mess around with it. You shouldn't be disappointed.

David Schnepp

+/- always grayed out Thanks for the quick reply. I can now access ISO settings. How do I get the +/- to work? That button is always grayed for me. Thanks!

Damian Hinch

Average Not much better, if at all, than the default Motorola camera. Some features don't work at all (panorama) and overall not really worth the money.

Windi Primiadhi

A BETTER CAMERA UNLOCKED Still average features especially compared with others camera tools who already available both free & pro in PlayStore, should do something in upcoming future for this apps !!!

AB Arvidr

Great app but... Why doesn't "touch to shoot" work on my device? I'm using Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

Charles Cheng

Support of Sony Xperia Z5 compact I can't take maximum resolution in Sony Xperia Z5 compact (23MP), while I can do that in Sony Xperia Z3 compact (20MP). Anything to do?

Robert Swinea

Won't save pics to my SD card. Program says KitKat will not allow saving photos to memory card. My default camera application allows it. Does take good photos, even in low light. Will be keeping the app for speciality picture taking opportunities.

mykl mokriakow

Been using for a while... When I just bought it I was so excited, worked like a charm.. Now it crashes constantly and freezes anytime I switch a function in the app. Could be so good.. Why all the glitch?


Panorama don't work I would have rated it a 5 except the panorama does not work that well otherwise it's a great camera

William Benstock

Great app but missing one feature Please add 4k support as my device can record in 4k

Nathan DePue

Nexus 6p Manual shutter control would be nice and a workaround to make the hdr mode work without exposure control.

Ronald T

Excellent, but... When I choose a custom folder as a save location for my photos, the app still creates an empty image in the default 'Phone' location whenever I take a pic. Can you fix, please.

Ted Gregory

Problems recording swapping from camera to video When i record action video, the recorded video jumps several frames making for a horrible end product. Every time I go from camera to camcorder or vice versa, the app stops working and I have to reopen it. I have messed up any shots/ videos because of this. Please fix.

Suzannah Muller

Super buggy A bunch of my pictures came out 3/4s neon green and the button to take the picture with keeps disappearing and reappearing.

Greg Palladini

ZTE Warp Elite N9518 Awesome Camera App,All you can ask for,& even more than I need... 5*****

Bernard Cunanan

API are not working on Galaxy S6 I guess the advanced features regarding the new camera2 api are not working on new exynos devices

Patcharapon Aekaluxjinda

Latest Version Update to the latest version then double click to take a picture doesn't work

george sioros

Several problems A lot of functions have problems in my phone (galaxy s4), like the panorama that works half the times getting stuck the other half.

zainul abidin

dark strip appears in the viewfinder, nexus 5, marshmallow. (Fixed already, thanks developer). After marshmallow 6.0.1, selfie panorama doesn't work and makes the app unresponsive.

Jarno S.

Super-slow HDR. The S4's native camera app shoots HDR immediately and is brighter in dark. Too verbose too, right in the center of the screen.

Ralph Hoffman

My goto camera app... for features and maximizing the quality of photos taken with my Note 4 camera.

Richard Joyce

Pano sucks I have yet to successfully take panorama photo. Haven't even come close.

Andrey Belove

Was much better before I had the previous free version and it was working as charm. Si I've decided to pay for it and guess what - it's not working! Hdr video hangs the app, panorama in not working, night mode is broken. Is it going to be fixed? UPDATE 12/12/2015. It's been a month since the first comment. Still no reply from a developer. No update to fix the bugs. If you make a paid app at least support it and reply to your customers.

John Economou

Bug Auto-flash mode doesn't work on nexus 5x

d0x d0x

Seems to be getting worse Pictures aren't saving, pictures are coming out all green...what happened? This WAS an amazing app

Aditya Kalway

Best Camera App Ever!! Nicest and crispiest camera out there! :) Totally recommend it!

Jouni Sarvanko

After testing the app for almost a week I am very disappointed. The app works fine with full auto but when auto fails (usually with white balance), the app is hellish to use. Manual mode does not remember the settings at all. It only remembers that you've set exposure to manual. White balance and focus settings are lost when you switch off the app or sometimes when you check the gallery. In addition, the app has a fixation on ISO 400 level and it tries to switch it on ALL THE TIME. This improved a little after the recent update and now the ISO setting remains, but when you make a photo, the level can be anything which usually results in an overexposed photo. I have to check the outcome all the time to be sure that nothing went wrong with the settings and after checking the gallery, my settings might be lost again... Now I've used it just for HDR photos and when I need timer. Otherwise even the free test app L Camera beats this with ease of use and photo quality.

John Bunyan

Works but not needed soon With the Galaxy S7 coming out on 8th March (pre-orders only, 11th for everyone else) your app will not be needed as Samsung have improved the camera so much. Thanks for being there for the S5.

Roi'ikka Ta

Still good .. Best cam app out there but still doesn't switch from photo to video and back, correctly. It is workable, though, now and will not freeze on capture or anything. Just does not switch back and forth correctly. Galaxy S4 T-Mobile Stock ROM . EDIT: Video still not working correctly. I just disabled the A Better Camera video recording and use a different app for it instead to record video. It's under "video" in the mode specific settings ..

Kool Bluez

OK.. But issues persist I bought the paid version as it is one of the better apps other than integrated camera software. I faced issue with black screen and hanged interface when accessing this software from lockscreen by power button double press(as in regular Nexus 6p camera). Also super mode is super slow. Also suggesting to integrate with automatic mode. Another gripe.. Last photo taken is not seen in the left bottom spontaneously. It circles for action but doesn't change to last pic taken.

deb horwath

It'd get 5 star, but... Best camera app ever. My camera for my phone is garbage, but my phone suits my needs, like durability, which is more important in my book. I get pretty good photos. With the Motorola camera pre-installed on my phone, forget it. Only problem is I paid for version, and I can no longer open the camera. Please help, and I'll give you the much deserved 5 star rating!

Gregory Irby

A Better Camera app Excellent Camera app! Not all features available for my 2013 NEXUS 7 TABLET, but better than stock camera. Best low light performance for devices without a flash!

Ivica Rijetkovic

Great app Can u change interface? It's little annoying :( :)

Cliff Berning

I bought pro. Always crashes Focusing not as good as Google camera, some times. I'm mid sixties. I shake, very sensitive to any shake. Crashes often. Long time user. Thinking of deleting.

ARTovHELL Sirius

Average It was ok for older phones of sgs II era.It does not have full support for modern phone's cameras.Just half of the resolution on my sony Z5

Lukas V008

Great, but could not record video Great app! But need some tuning in video mode - doesn't work at all...

With Video Camera It is indeed A Better Camera. I wouldn't say it has all the features that I came to love from its competitors, but it's user friendly, settings are easier to navigate, less clutter (I'm not saying the others are), and best of all, it's the only one with its native Video Camera support.

Louis Brown

Crashes Even after uninstalling and reinstalling several times camera doesn't take pictures and the video camera keeps crashing -- nothing wrong with phone as stock camera works fine in both still and video modes -- this program worked fine before last update but doesn't work at all now

U Jha

Note 2 Timestamp doesn't work at times. If we change the flash mode from No to Auto, sometimes it doesn't work. Otherwise, other features are nice.

Daniel Marszalec

Worked fine for a while, then after update to Android 6.0, various problems started (on Galaxy 6edge). In its current state, the app is unusable for me :( Maximum resolution now restricted to 8mp, instead of full 16mp. Each photo now rendered with a strong green tint - even in the raw file. No problems capturing full resolution jpeg and raw files with other apps. Very frustrating - used to be my favourite photo app, but simply unusable now ( I've tried updating, reinstalling, etc a few times - no help). Hoping that these issues will soon get solved, so I can start using the app again...

Amanda Seidel

doesn't even take picture bought the unlocked app yesterday to use the HDR portion (after the free trial) & after playing with it off & on for 2 days the app won't take HDR pictures. every time I try click the button it closes the app. waste of money! ... UPDATE: tried recommendation from developer & camera 2 isn't even enabled on my device. save your money & buy a different app

Bruno Lopes

Average in Panorama mode I bought this app mainly for panoramic mode and the results haven't been good. The capture is really slow and when the final picture appears it shows some artifacts. I have a LG G2 and I am using Marshmallow. Some issues were solved with latest version.

Wiakeem Heath

Alcatel Pics come out really nice, best camera app I have tried. Constantly crashed on other phone HTC vivid.

Adam Boarman

Something from nothing It really does live up to the hype. A great deal for less than $4

Victor Colon

Flash Camara flash don't work properly, pictures with flash end up all white.

Nicola Stefani

Nexus 5x Always been a fan of this amazing app. On my old nexus 5 no issues, but on my current nexus 5x i have major issues with HDR and Super .. UPDATE: disabling Camera 2 interface fixes these issues.. However.. Guys please update this... Nexus 5x should be fully compatible with Camera 2 APIs

Daniel Allen

Great App.. This is a very good app it takes a little learning curve to be able to utilize the full capability of this app but if you do that the benefits are great good pictures plain and simple

augy wm

well, the most useful is only the panorama mode

Hinhin Foong

Can't take picture with Panorama mode…I download this apps is for super mode…but my phone can't support super mode…I don't know why my phone can't support camera2 interface, but other camera apps can support this mode…My phone is Moto G1 run on Android 5.1

Ismael Besheer

What's the difference between that and the unlocked edition I can't seem to find any difference

Bestech Guru

HDR is not as good now. Can you at least add another her option for the old way? Thanks for the great app!

Miguel Coelho

Working great! Night mode is finally working properly! 5 stars!

Ethan M

Very nice Sometimes glitches out my video though ;(

Thomas N

Flashes On my Samsung Galaxy s6 edge my screen flashes, if the screen flashes when you take a picture then the picture is all blown out same with videos but worse. I have to refund.

Hemanshu Rukadikar

Becoming useless and waste of money day by day Apps keeps reopening automatically and clicking pics.. Panorama doesn't work

Vishal Shah

Issue with video. Please fix! When the app works, it's a joy to use,which is annoying when it doesn't save photos and videos. Every time I open the app, the first video I shoot doesn't save. Which is annoying if I want to catch something quickly. Please fix!

Steve Ballantyne

Crashes like crazy, video stutters This app used to crash on me occasionally, now after a bunch of updates it is slower and it crashes all the time (at the worst possible moment). Obviously not well tested, at least on a Moto Droid. Going back to the stock camera App. It's not great but at least its reliable. Took a few videos tonight. One stutters, the other is just a broken unplayable thing and a still picture.

P Schmied

"(Help) file no longer exists." "The file may have been moved" , on a new, fresh install? On a paid version? HOW AND WHY?!!? It doesn't matter how great an app is. If it's obviously incomplete, that indicates the developer does not care about customers, only code, (and not very much about checking it for completeness and integrity). There is a problem with the PlayStore, hacker developers, and a rating system, that equally weights obsolete version scores with current ones.

Luminor Asterris

Thanks to developers for quick answer! So if it is showing green pics on GALAXY S7 - please goto settings/general/more and uncheck settings for Camera2 API. This works well. Also this camera is the most AMAZING camera out of ~14 different cameras I've tried to use!

Artur Pisarski

Don't work on Xperia z5 I used it on z3 bought a premium and now after upgrading to Z5 the app font work... I am disappointed.


Please add Can you please add a 120 fps capture option up to 1080p ? My phone supports that and it will be awesome. I bought this app. Please help us all and add that feature

Wilkin Santana

Free version work flawless, paid crashes I was using the free version which work just great, then I was like, ok this is good, I'll pay to help the developer and use the extras that come with the laid one. Well the paid one just doesn't work. I take a picture and it woodland save it. It just stay on the screen. It also crashes all the time.... Why? What is going on?

Randy Bacigalupo

Don't pay for this!! Like many others, the paid version is slower and has many problems. Mine shuts the phone off whenever it uses the flash. Must pull the battery to restart. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!

Ted Gregory

Problems recording swapping from camera to video These issues still continue. I want to use your product, but cant if what follows continues to be my results. Please fix!!!!!!When i record action video, the recorded video jumps several frames making for a horrible end product. Every time I go from camera to camcorder or vice versa, the app stops working and I have to reopen it. I have messed up numerous shots/ videos because of this. Please fix.

Dumitru Daniel

Awsome camera app. Pls add dual camera. I just bought te app, it's great. Please add duall camera support like in note 3 camera, like in the same picture photos taken with both cameras, also for video.

Ed Tannenbaum

Buggy on 6P When set to default app for double power click, initialization routinely fails with black and unresponsiveness. Also bugs returning to app after playback in player etc. Please fix this great app.


Good but not great for Z3Compact. Pros: Hdr is superb. Uses full resolution of camera. Exposure adjustment. Histogram. Cons: No iso control. Night mode is poor compared to stock app. Pics taken after zoom are also not great. All this from a paid app. Panorama in portrait mode n compresses large part together. Gets 3.5 stars if possible.

Lukas V008

Could not record video on xperia m... Great app! But need some tuning in video mode - doesn't work at all...

Raven Tan

Video doesn't record on 1080p resolution As subject. Thought it's better Nexus stock app but it's not working

Jeremy Walck

I paid for it so I could keep the panorama function, turns out the panorama function absolutely sucks. Go get the free version.

Louis Brown

Crashes Even after uninstalling and reinstalling several times camera doesn't take pictures and the video camera keeps crashing -- nothing wrong with phone as stock camera works fine in both still and video modes -- this program worked fine before the last 2 updates but doesn't work at all now

Jason McClain

Lost access to my photos in gallery I like the app itself, but when I downloaded it, somehow my gallery app lost the ability to see my old photos from my previous camera app. I can still see them using my file manager, but my gallery app doesn't load that folder any more or my Instagram folder or many other folders containing photos. it's super inconvenient to open my file manager to view old photos. I can't find a resolution. Please help!

Dali Jarboui

Could have been better(Nexus 6p) It crashes frequently and very slow. If you pay for an App you expect it to work. I understand that some of the features are in beta mode but still the normal features should not be affected. Don't waste your money until the developers fix the issues.

Abdul Rehman Ahmed

Keeps hanging Im using a sony xperia z3 plus. While some of the modes work some like iso adjustment and multishot just hang the screen and it freezes


Good but not great for Z3Compact. Pros: Hdr is superb. Uses full resolution of camera. Exposure adjustment. Histogram. Cons: No iso control.

Wolfgang Szoecs

Good feature set - EXCEPT it doesn't work I initially installed it on my cm12.1 note2 - works - and with the root-camera-restarter it's acceptable. Simply because the pic quality is good. On my stock s7-edge it just stops working - no root - game over. The samsung-cam-app still works.

Hans Pietersen

Video camera ALWAYS freezes I've been patient. I bought this months ago and the video camera has always frozen up, despite numerous upgrades since. This needs to get fixed now. (Samsung Note 3).


Crashes Everything works fine but when i try to change the IMAGE SIZE it crashes.Please look into it..

Stefano Costi

Good but low resolution... Super App. With last update has been added support for Xperia z5 max resolution as asked. Thank's a lot!

harshal surve

Thanks for this app... Everything works nice and smooth, except in HDR mode there is a slight lag and the bokeh effect sometimes turn out grainy. If you could look into that I would really appreciate it.

Richard Laws

Poor Terrible on the last three devices I've had LG3, Note 4 and OnePlus 3. Lags,. Freezes and crashes regularly.

Rodolfo Chacin

Good app, but flawed I have a Blu Energy X, I can't record video with the front camera. Also, the preview and pictures are disproportionate as if they'd been stretched horizontally.

Sanket Shah

Great app Amazing app, but I think the latest update broke it. App Crashes on the nexus 6p, unmodded, stock, unrooted. Not giving less stars because app is amazing.

Roger Gee

Really nice app works well

Serge V.

No preview when save to SD When the content is being saved to SD card . The preview button does not open gallery or a viewer. Impossible to see what was captured. Need to exit the camera every time and go to gallery app in order to see the content. Pkease fix.

Ed Tannenbaum

Buggy on 6P When set to default app for double power click, initialization routinely fails with black and unresponsiveness. Also bugs returning to app after playback in player etc. Please fix this great app. Edit... Now it freezes with a white screen. Not the fix I needed. Edit: June 21 still not working on 6P. One star now!

Souvik Biswas

Lots of improvement needed. 1. Add better ui and better app icon and please please add material design. 2. The app freezes sometimes. 3. Problems with Android 6. 4. Poor panorama, why don't use the Google camera technique to capture great panorama. Well, now the best thing i like about it is hdr photos turned out surprisingly well even better than stock camera. Low light shots without flash using hdr are awesome.??

Viktor Warhola

The best camera app There is only one bug, or should I say forgotten thing, location metadata is not present in videos...please fix!! But Wow! All the options, not laggy not buggy and above all, shoots amazing photos! Simply the best option on Android

Ruben Tura

Good photos The photos are very good. The HDR is very natural, doesn't add up a lot of noise, and is pretty much customizable at taste. I find the final result better than most camera apps on my nexus 4. The only only thing I'd change would be the UI. It looks kinda old, and outdated. Also, swiping for options opens up notification bar, most of the times.

Ann Vicente

Disappointed I regret paying the upgraded version where there is really no difference. Infact I experience more hassle and lagging and more "not responding" moments. ?

Devesh Sharma

One of the best camera apps Hands down the best camera apps I've used for the LG G3. It's fast, smooth and has many manual features that make it worth the price. I love it.

P Schmied

BUG : Help "file no longer exists." SHAME SHAME!! "The file may have been moved" , on a new, fresh install? On a PAID version? HOW? WHY? It doesn't matter how great an app is. If it has an obvious reported error that is ignored, for 2 months after reporting, that indicates the developer does not care about customers, only code, (and not very much about checking it for completeness and integrity). From the 90% off sale price, it looks like the developer is trying to cash in and bail out.

Leibo R Raibstein

It's ok Works fine, but certainly no better than the stock camera app on the Nexus 6P. It's slow to process pictures, and tends to really screw exposure up.

Adam Moran

One picture at a time Will only take one picture at a time, and then I have to close and reopen it to take another. Funny, the free version of the app worked perfectly. Nexus 6P.

Fernando DBG

Horrible UI, panorama crashes Every time I try to shoot a panorama the app crashes. Using LG x180g Zone. It only has 1 gb RAM, so I'm guessing that a top notch phone must be used

Otto W.

Very disappointed Lg g2 produces better quality shots that this app. Features are great but only in theory. In reality the app. Is useless HDR is gimmick, colours are over saturated, sharpness insufficient. Overall impression is that it is not worth the money paid. Forget it.

Hartawan ADS

What about Super Mode for LG G4? LG G4 has a good camera. Can you make super mode for G4 running android 5 and 6? Thanks.

Bob Bush

Why am I disappointed with this brilliant app When I upgraded to the full version it then decided not to allow me to save to the memory card (saying not with KitKat ) as I use this a lot with video not a lot of use

Shane Hurley

Not a bad app, but Advertising app with a 90% off icon forever gives a bad impression of "so buggy trying to give it away".

Egie Doohan

Doesnt support asus zenfone 2?? Please add zenfone 2 to be a supported device for setting iso,shuter speed and all manual mode,thnx

David Lee

It's working once again Now the app seems to work really smooth, so what can i say but put it back to five *.

James Jackson

Crashes, starts slow Can't take more than one picture at a time, and it takes forever to initialize. Wasn't doing this before.

Aditya Gupta

wo..wo what happened?! so...i just purchased this full version.....but now when I'm selecting custom folder for saving in the memory card, it's telling me not supported on KitKat... but i was able to do it on the free version(wtf!).....please developer i love this app.... look into this issue asap... please...


Cannot switch between still and video. By the time you get it going it's next day. Useless paid version.

Ed Tannenbaum

Buggy on 6P When set to default app for double power click, initialization routinely fails with black and unresponsiveness. Also bugs returning to app after playback in player etc. Please fix this great app. Edit... Now it freezes with a white screen. Not the fix I needed. Edit: June 21 still not working on 6P. One star now! Edit: Android 7 and latest version is no better. Damn!

Jeremy Kato

Still broken after update, waiting for fix. The camera screen simply displays a black or incredibly dark screen constantly. The pictures are taken correctly but the preview is broken.

Allan Wong

i am on Nexus 6P 7.0 and just noticed on ABC (unlocked), the manual exposure and manual ISO are now gone. Could the developer please update the app to enable the manual exposure and manual ISO again? Those are very important features for night photography with longer exposure for everyone. Such features are there on the Locked version. Thanks.

michelle neuber

Pretty cool and good app I've been using the paid for vers now for almost a yr.. yes some of the updates get buggy but overall I like this camera.

Doesn't play nice with 6p Glad it was cheap, because it's been disabled

Diego Vanni

I liked it more than others I tried many other apps but this one is simple and easy to set up...I liked the quality of images too.

ARTovHELL Sirius

Good cam Good camera app.Tried a lot during android evolution,but always stick to this app.

Peter Cobalt

Best I have found Used for a couple of years on many cameras not a problem

Austin k

This is on a Nexus 6 one update behind the newest Marshmallow. I've always used the regular stock camera app. Bought this because of glowing recommendations by many people and the sale price. I like the features and the interface, it seems to be well put together. My issues are with how it actually runs. It keeps freezing my Hangouts app totally where I cannot type or do anything until I close and reopen it. This happens when taking pictures to send as a text. It will also randomly turns the picture I'm taking into a bright green color. It seems to crop the picture very small and fills the area around it with green. Very strange. I would love to change my review on this but until some major fixes happen I cannot do that.

Michael Johnston

Issues For the last month everything I take a pic with the app my pictures are always green. This is not a settings issue as I've u installed and started fresh...I've also did a factory resent on my phone. My stock camera works fine. I have had this for a year and never had issues until July of this year. I have a galaxy s6 edge plus

Md. Obaej Tareq

Lots of good features. I have been using this app for a while now. I found that sometime, it is not saving any picture in my Nexus 6P. It took the picture. In the file browser, it is showing the picture file size 0.00 byte. I already give all require access to the app. This a big bug. I lost some good shoot because of this problem. Please have a look in this issue.

Kevin Keigwin

I loved this app and used it as my main camera for a long time. I recently upgraded my Galaxy S3 to Lollipop 5.1 and now the camera freezes every time I use it. It then locks the phone's camera so that no other camera app can use it. I'm seeing a lot of other complaints on here about instability. If you guys care about keeping your customers, you'll respond to all the complaints and provide support. Then I'll give you a better rating.

Sys Tem

I love the app and all the features. This is the only app on my phone that I paid for. I do have one issue and not sure if it is the phone or the app. On my Samsung Galaxy S5 the flash is not synchronizing in low light situations. The flash goes off once or twice but the pictures are dark. Any clues?

Mihail Ivanchev

Half the interface does not rotate Shutter button and everything on its side does not rotate, it stays in portrait mode for some reason. Manual focus is gone for me, was broken before that. Slider was in the middle of the screen, where the thing I was trying to capture naturally is. So I could not see if the thing i was trying to focus on was in focus. App running on Android 7 and Nexus 5x. Also, the interface could use some flattening to be more material, but that's not a big deal.

Porfirio Reyes

Fast and responsive camera apps with loads of options. The reason it don't get 5 stars is because the HDR feature is horrible! Compare an HDR photo from ABC and then take an HDR pic with the Google Camera app and you will see what I mean.....they really should just remove it, as it produces horribly overblown and useless photos.

Rodolfo Chacin

Good app, but flawed I have a Blu Energy X, I can't record video with the front camera. Also, the preview and pictures are disproportionate as if they'd been stretched horizontally. It doesn't take into account the virtual buttons.

Michael T

Locks up all the time Can't reliably use this with my Nexus, I'll click on the icon and...wait...still a black screen...close out...and now it's got the viewfinder but the picture is frozen. Wish I hadn't bought it, not nearly as good as they say.

Kistyantoro Kusuma

Disliked icon 1.) Don't like the icon.. Feel so wrong with big "circle" design, make it simple & more catch-eye. 2.) Is there any option for pre-focus shot feature?

P Schmied

Help "file no longer exists." "The file may have been moved", on a new, fresh install? On a PAID version? HOW? WHY? It doesn't matter how great an app is. If it has an obvious reported error that is ignored, for 2 months after reporting, that indicates the developer does not care about customers, or by not checking it for completeness and integrity, his own code. Also discovered that a paid user reporting a bug can be changed into a beta tester via automatic "updates", thereby hiding later bug compaints from the public.

Thai Pham

Terrible photos On my Nexus 6P. All the pictures it takes are crap. Wish I didn't pay for it. Stock camera app is better. Images look animated and fuzzy. For the money you pay it shouldn't be so difficult to take a good picture.

Anna Avram

Omg Oh my god, people are so whiny. I have no problems with this app, hence why I bought it. It takes great pictures. If you don't like it this, either use the stock camera or find another app. Simple as that.

Lukas V008

New versions can't record video on xperia m... Great app! But need some tuning in video mode - doesn't work at all... In older version video recordings works but the new version are video unusable :(

drizzt d'u

Great but latest update issue. with new (3.3.7) version, it is a bit slower, and once i take a picture, it freezes with the picture still there. need to close the app as can't do anything else. so downgraded to 3.3.6 and it is working again. sony z5 compact with lolli. EDIT: v3.4.0 now, it works again but saving to "phone" is very slow. will wait & try again with newer version.

Justin Tuijl

Disappointed Don't know why I paid for this. The interface is awful, the pictures aren't any better. The stock camera works better.

Jan Hough

Potentially good app. Two problems so far, the screen brightness adjustment disappears and no photos taken when battery low.

eran cohen

Say they supporting but not Moto x pure.. can't use some features.cant use some setting as well.shame... if they would actually do their Job this will be the Best app

Nia Koehn

Loving it. With one big problem. When i open setting and try to change image size, it crashes. Really need to work on that bug. Other than that it's really nice.

Red and Yellow

Very good camera app but... As a camera app, this is one of the best out there but then the interface is too complex, and icons look huge like its for the elderly. There isnt any saturation adjustments, i hope it will be updated to make a new interface

archit oberoi

Super mode disappeared.. Hdr mode is way too volatile and supposedly their best mode super' taken off the list, making it a useless app

Murat Aldemir

Unfortunately, A Better Camera Unlocked has stopped. Nexus 5, Android ver. 6.0.1 It was working quite well until the last update. Now, i can't even open the app. I hope you'll fix it.

Dave Howey

Its ok Good features. Slow response. Inconvenient navigation of features

Oliver Scholz

It takes 3 seconds to take a picture By that time my cameras no longer pointing at the initial subject. Totally useless. I can't believe I paid for this.


App freezes on my Z3Compact. App freezes when switching to Single shot from any other mode. this is not expected from a paid app.
