CyanogenMod Launches New Camera App Called Focal, Innovates a Lot (Video)
You’ve probably heard a complaint or two regarding the camera app in Android 4.2 and probably Android 4.3 as well, since not much has changed. The CyanogenMod team must have heard the complaints and took it upon themselves to come up with a decent camera app.
The new app is called Focal and it follows the same stock Android design language that’s already famous, but also tweaks it a bit. The really interesting part comes when you find out that this is actually part of a bigger project called Nemesis, that the CyanogenMod team has been brewing for a while now.
Nemesis is actually the name of a series of features like Focal, that will be rolling out over the next weeks and months. Back to Focal itself, it includes a shutter button that can also serve as a quick toggle menu to alternate between camera modes. You can alternate between them with a simple swipe of your thumb out from the shutter button.
The options include panorama, a front facing camera and access to CyanogenMod’s PicSphere, an alternative to Photosphere. In order to change settings, you will swipe in from the left side of the screen while in portrait mode or from the bottom in landscape. More details can be found in the source link.
