There’s that old, overused saying that the best camera is the one you’ve got with you. But if the one you’ve got in your hand comes with the most ineffective camera application, then it’s the worst.
Thankfully, there are plenty of apps in the Google Play Store that can help you achieve faux-professional smartphone photographer status, or at least give you a little more control over how the shot looks. For instance, I personally like apps where I can adjust the shutter speed for when I’m shooting at dusk, but if you like filters and presets, there are plenty of applications that offer those, too.
So, let’s go through some of the better camera applications available for your Android phone. Some are free and some require you to pay, but all of them offer a little something for the photographer in you just waiting to bust out.
