Although we haven’t had many posts dedicated to the Camera Zoom FX Android app on our website until now, this has made our lists of best photographer’s kit Android apps, best HDR camera apps and best paid Android apps of 2012, so you can imagine we have a lot of respect for AndroidSlide’s creation.

However, this has just become much more appealing than before, receiving a huge update with one of the most generous changelogs we’ve seen in a while and also getting a price cut in the process. Talk about double impact!

Normally available for $4.99, Camera Zoom FX for Android is now just $2.99. We don’t know if the discount is a limited time offer or if the new price will stay this way forever, but for precautionary reasons you should download the app right away.

As for the upgrade to version 4.0.0, this comes with a brand new, elegant and intuitive UI, but also a large number of bug fixes and new features, including portrait mode, a new timer, pinch to zoom, horizon and stable indicators, Facebook sharing and a boatload of other goodies.

The cherry on top of Camera Zoom FX 4 should be the new built-in hardware acceleration that bumps the speed and overall performance quite nicely. The full changelog can be viewed here, and, if you’re still not convinced that this is the best third-party camera app around, just take a look at the Google Play user reviews.
