SmugMug’s Camera Awesome arrives to Google Play for $2.99

SmugMug’s Camera Awesome is without a doubt one of the most popular third-party camera apps in the iOS world. For Android users however, the app has be stuck in beta form for quite a while — until today. Camera Awesome is now ditching its beta tag, and has officially landed in the Play Store for $2.99.

While the app’s price tag might seem like a lot for “just a camera app”, there’s actually a ton of cool features here. Camera Awesome has all the usual camera functions like panorama, timer, burst and single, but there’s also some extras such as image stabilization and the the ability to adjust white balance, exposure and ISO.

There’s also plenty of high quality filters, focus points and so much more.

Beyond just taking a good picture, the app also has some pretty useful editing functions baked in. The biggest of these features is the “awesomize” button, which makes automatic adjustments in a way that sort of works like Google+’s Auto Awesome.


Now for the downside: Camera Awesome only works with a select number of Android devices, though most ‘big name’ handsets and tablets are covered.

On the Nexus front we have the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, with Nexus 5 support coming soon. In the Samsung camp we have the Note 2, Note 3, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4. There’s also support for the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, Moto X and Motorola Droid RAZR.

SmugMug also promises that the app will soon be coming to the Amazon AppStore with support for the Kindle Fire HDX 7 and 8.9.

To pick up the premium app, you’ll want to head over to Google Play. For additional details about what to expect from Camera Awesome, you might also want to stop by SmugMug’s official website.

For those that have already tried out the camera app, what do you think so far?

    You seriously aren’t bothered by the fact this app blantantly rips off the iOS UI and does so poorly (with Android fonts and shit)

        Look at the screenshots provided. It looks like someone jailbroke an iPhone running iOS 6 or earlier, replaced Helvetica with Roboto, and slapped on the Android status bar.

        It’s as if they took one look at and said “yeah, whatever.”

          There is ONE thing about this that looks like iOS, and that’s the button to switch camera. Other than that it looks NOTHING like iOS, so please get off an android fansite and stop bitching about how everything is copied by apple, because it isn’t. And FYI, iOS 7s camera looks ALOT like android 4+ stock camera (which came earlier).
