Recent changes:
Nexus 5/6 fixes: dark preview in low light; torch remaining on. Crash fix for Sony Xperia in video mode. Fixes for GPS. Fixes for gallery showing latest image/video.

Uses Material Design theme style on Android 5, and dark theme for Settings (more consistent with rest of app; better for not ruining night vision; sorry if you preferred the old look, but Android doesn't seem to cope well with mixing themes in the same Activity).

Customise filenames. New options for stamping.

Best camera app I have seen yet It needs a polished look, but it functions like no other camera/camcorder app out there, and it's free and has no ads.

Near Perfect This should be a stock camera! easy to use, plenty of features and yet simple to use and you can easily change the settings. Works great on my Note 4.
