For those who are in search of the next great camera app — and let's face it, who isn't — it's time to take a look at Camera Awesome. The longtime favorite on iOS has been in beta on Android for some time now, and today it's available to all for $2.99.
First and foremost, you get a pretty darn good camera user interface. That's important because Camera Awesome is full of features and settings, and that they're easy to understand and manipulate is paramount.
Consider: You've got the usual shooting options — single, burst, panorama, timer, etc. But added to that is an option "big button" shutter (love it), interval shots and image stabilization. You can adjust white balance, ISO and exposure. There's facial recognition. Anti-shake mode. Four options to help you better compose your shots — thirds, golden, trisec and square. There's a leveler to help you keep things straight. And of course there's sharing to Smugmug.
If you're looking for a new, full-featured camera app, this is well worth a look for $3. Swing by Smugmug's blog for the list of supported devices.
