  • Overall I like this app, but I noticed yesterday that the video function was having trouble auto-focusing. Stock camera app had no such issues.
  • Took many photos and nothing appears in photos. I was thinking i m taking photos while it did nothing, not a single photo appears in Google photos. Wasted so many precious moments. So shame.
  • Excellent app (supports external mics) This is a magnificent app. It's clean stable has no adds and is perfect for the Vlogger or mobile journalist.
