View Full Version : Need decent camera app after gb update.

08-19-2011, 11:04 PM
Just updated to gb. Looks pretty nice. I was warned that the nice froyo camera was replaced with one that was not so good. I wasn't prepared for how much it sucks. It is almost unusable. The flash doesn't sync right with the photos and it no longer does hd video. The pictures are horrible.
I want my camera back. I backed up everything before I did my update. Can I just reinstall the thing? If not, is there a decent camera app that I can use? Even willing to use a paid app.
Don't want to root my phone to get my old camera back.

There is a way to get the old camera back, but I don't remember the link to do it. I think it was over at XDA, but that doesn't mean it's not a root-only solution.

There are camera apps in the market. I'd suggest trying a few of the free ones before moving to the paid ones. If you do move to a paid one, set a timer for 10 minutes so you can return one you don't want before the 15 minute deadline hits.

Thanks, trying free version of camera advance lite. May upgrade to the paid version if I like it. Definitely better than the stock gb one.
