This app really does have no equal from any other third party developer, and it makes you wonder why the smartphone & tablet developers can't create something this good for their devices. In fact, it's so good, it makes you think you somehow installed an improved camera on your device!

Thanks for the tip, @leeshor!

With that many features and do dads I'm disappointed it doesn't have metering mode.
It's slower than the Note4 native camera but does take a nice shot and has a lot of bells and whistles the stock camera doesn't to make it feel and act more like a stand alone camera. Perhaps they'll add metering in an update
I'd pay .99 for it again but not more.

Does the ISO setting work? If so, this could be what the other person needs in my "I'm back" thread.

These are the possible changes to iso and under main settings , more, general, more, save configuration you can choose which settings, including iso, to keep the same with each launch.

I'm not impressed with the camera. I took a series of three shots each using the stock Moto X camera, the Google camera app, and this app(free version). They were still shots of my Christmas tree. I took them both with HDR on and off with the flash off. Of the three this app did the worst. The HDR shots with the Google camera looked the best followed closely by the HDR from the stock app.

This app also forced closed on me both times I selected the low light setting.

It has a ton of nice features but I'm going to pass on it.

Strange...it says "90% off", but my price was "FREE".

Hmmmm....no charge for me either. But then I went through a 3rd party camera app phase awhile ago, so I may have paid for this already.

Mine was .99 and I feel it was worth every penny. (there is a free version as well). I have 4 different camera apps, just on my LG and if you can get past the 15 minutes (just looking at ...more settings) of setup and tuning it is more flexible than all the other camera apps put together. The ISO settings alone are better than most other camera apps and seem to me to work just fine.

I personally don't see an image quality issue against the other apps but I'm still testing settings.

Agreed. This was one of the reasons I didn't keep this app....I didn't notice any improvement in actual picture quality, and since my S3 & S5 already had most of the features this app provides, I returned to stock.
I can see it being useful in the Turbo & Nexus though, being that they don't provide much in the way of stock camera features, so that'll be really helpful for these users
Since I apparently already paid for it, I did go ahead and redownload it just to see if anything new was added since using it last.

The beauty is once paid it's forever paid, no matter the future phone. CZFX was my go to for burst mode on the Note2 because it blew away the stock camera app for that and it was my default on the Rezound and Inc.
