    It looks like Lenovo is committed to making their Motorola product line work. They have obviously been spending some resources on it beyond the typical. There's a good example to be found on the Google Play Store. Lenovo just launched a new Motor Camera app for their Motorola devices and it's packed full of features.

    Here's a quick quote with details on the app:
    Here's a link to check it out: Google Play Store - Moto Camera

    Seriously? What is that about? Moto abandoning us? The latest flagship? Wow... that's kind of sad...

    According to a post I saw elsewhere, this is only compatible with their (so far, unreleased) 2016 models.

    A couple of things to keep in mind: 1.) On a lot of our phones (Turbo, Turbo 2, etc.) our camera app is named Motorola Camera, not Moto Camera; so this is technically a different app. 2.) Moto likes to do user testing on their Moto apps before they go public for everyone. Since this is designed for the 2016 phones, my guess is that folks will get an opportunity to test it out on current phones at some point; and then it will be released for our phones when it's ready.

    Very strange that a new app would be released on the Play Store, manufacturer specific, and yet it doesn't work with their latest flagship phone, although this is the Droid line so it's really Verizon's flagship rather than Motorola's. There are 204 reviews, and the majority are 5 and 4 stars, so it's obviously working in some phones. I'd like to know what phones it is supposed to work with and what ones it definitely will not work with.

    Jonny, do you know where that post you read was? If it was supposed to only work with unreleased phones, then it's very strange that it's already been released, and that it is working with other phones already.

    I am aware that our camera app is Motorola branded, and that Motorola's "Moto" line of phones are in many ways a different than the Droid line of phones. This explanation makes sense and so it's understandable that there is already a significant list of reviews (seen below). These people must be owners of the "Moto" line phones, such as the Moto X.

    I bet we will get it within a few months FoxKat, once they tweak it to work with other phones.

    Agreed. That's what I thought when I saw that article.
