Cyanogen Camera has landed in the Google Play Store

The Cyanogen Camera app is now available for free download through the Google Play Store. It officially supports CyanogenMod 11S, but you can always side load and let us know how it goes.

Cyanogen Camera app

Before I say anything else, yes, the Cyanogen Camera app is now in the Google Play Store, but no, if you are not running CM11s, you probably can’t have it.

Well, with that out of the way, Cyanogen has dropped their Camera app into the Play Store for ‘all’ to enjoy. The camera app is designed to run with Cyanogen’s own Android ROM called CyanogenMod and it appears so far that the Google Play Store download restriction will require you to be running CM11s, which is the latest stable release of their ROM.

Although the Play Store is limiting the app to CM11s devices, we are hearing plenty of reports of users that have found the apk elsewhere for sideloading. Their results? Mixed, as you might have imagined. Most CM based ROMs are working just fine, but a lot of AOSP ROMs are simply enjoying force closes.

Enough of that, is this camera app any good? Well, we’ve had the chance to run through it a few times in the past, I suggest taking a peek at our OnePlus One camera shootout to see this thing in action. Also, don’t forget that it recently received Kate Upton mode, adding ease of use through your headphones.

If you have an eligible device and are in need of the Cyanogen Camera, head on over to the Google Play Store for your free copy. For the rest of us, the apk is out there for your side loading pleasure, just be sure to let us know how it goes for you on your device.

What’s your verdict – Cyanogen Camera, is it worth installing?
