Camera Awesome Released for Android, “Awesomizing” Photos With Ease

Camera Awesome

Camera Awesome, one of TechCrunch’s top apps of 2012 for iOS, has made its way to Android. The application is a photo editing app + shooter that is known for its “Awesomize” effect, which is comparable to Google’s own “Auto Awesome” that you see on Google+. Without having to touch a ton of different toggles and filters, the software can automatically up the brightness, tone in saturation, and make your photos look “good” without much work.

Besides the Awesomize effect, there are countless real-time effects to choose from when editing, options to share to any social network you can imagine, as well as different capture modes for its built-in shooter. You can capture high-speed burst shots, panoramas, and HDR images all from within the app.

And as a note to Tegra-powered device owners, your devices will be able to produce some extra effects thanks to that processor. Tegra devices will have the ability capture to slow-motion video, enhanced HDR, and have integrated stylus support.

The app costs $2.99 on Google Play, which is right on par with other photo editing apps. But if you are spending money on this, then we are hoping you have already tried Snapseed.

Play Link ($2.99)

    It’s actually more fluid that most of the other camera offering. It’s actually fast and they did a really good job with it. I don’t really care too much about the filters, but the camera itself is fast and responsive on my Nexus without the jerkiness that other cameras have, including the stock camera which still seems to hitch when going from portrait to landscape. ProCapture was my goto camera on my phone. It’s been replaced now.

  • Pay for a camera app? Nope.

    I just need to complete one more survey and I can get this for free! Oh wait, never mind. I don’t take enough pictures to justify buying it.

    *barf* at that iOS style interface on an Android phone.

      Yup, can’t stand that “Done” button. I do have a back button for a reason on my Android device. Thx tho

    another one cool

  • Not seeing the advantage over Snapseed. Might try this out at some point on the N5 though.

    Incompatible with all my devices — DNA, 2012 Nexus 7 (no surprise there), Xoom, Rezound, and Incredible. What is it compatible with?

    • Not That Drunk

      From the Play link:

      “Supported Devices

      Samsung Galaxy SIII, S4, Galaxy Nexus, Note 2, Note 3,
      Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, (Nexus 5 coming soon),
      Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, MotoX, Motorola Droid Razr,
      Kindle Fire HDX 7″, 8.9″ coming soon”

        Read the compatibility list (or a manual)? Just who do you think I am? I would rather just complain about it 😉

      • Trey Granato

        It says it not compatible with my TMobile s3?

  • Droid Ronin

    Free on iOS and $2.99 for Android? What is this monstrosity?

    • cwillen

      The Android version comes bundled with all the filters.

  • Andy Stetson

    Yo dawg…

  • Droidzilla

    Does this have any advantage over Auto Enhance and Snapseed?

    • joejoe5709

      My question as well.

    • JMonkeYJ

      I believe the major thing is that this is a camera app, as well, and they claim to have improved the time to take pictures over other camera apps among other enhancements. I wonder if this would help the N5 at all? As a stock camera app user I’m intrigued.

    I love corgis!

    You say Play Link but I think you put your source there instead. FYI

  • Adam Truelove

    Ah yes, let’s take all the Android UX conventions, throw them away, sprinkle in some iOS as well as some made up stuff and there you have it.

    • This.

    • flosserelli

      Well the app *did* originate on iOS, which has no shortage of brain dead users that need an app to do the simplest of tasks. You can’t get more simple than one-click “Awesomizing”…

      Corgis don’t need an app to be awesome 🙂
