    Title says it all. I installed it last night and it add ALOT to the camera app. The pano sphere feature works pretty dang good. you can go side ways like a normal panorama PLUS you can go up and down(when you try it it looks jacked up until the phone processes it). Now instead of a straight pano....you can go WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE.


    On the post processing side of things. You can finally change you exposure, contrast, vibrance. Adjust curves(which is awesome), push and pull shadows, adjust hue and saturation.

    All in all....much much much better vs the 4.1 stock camera. DancingNexusDancingNexusDancingNexus

    I've been using it since yesterday. The only problems I ran into were the initial setting up of the app. All I had to do was rename the old gallery2.apk and then download the post-snapped editing options and place them in system/lib. The commenters over at droid life tell you how to do it. After I got all that fixed everything has worked since then. And I have to agree that it is a very nice upgrade

    The first version(s) of it had issues, because they weren't including all of the necessary files for certain things. The newest ones work flawlessly as far as I can tell.

    Installed a working version a day or so ago and am not sure how the 4.2 sphere feature is suppose to work. When taking a sphere photo and after it get's processed so that you can view it in the gallery; is clicking on the sphere suppose to do anything? The 3 circles in the lower right does the editing, but is the sphere suppose to do anything or is it just there to indicate that it's a sphere picture?

    Maybe this is a feature that was fixed (if it is a feature)? Just not sure, so let me know.:biggrin:
