Review: Landcam is minimalist design at its best for a feature-rich camera app

Snap, edit, share, and tweak your images easily with this well-designed mobile app.

Landcam, on the surface, seems like yet another camera app, but with unique design aesthetics, plenty of features in its back pocket, and quick response, it stands out as an exceptional alternative. This app may not be for everyone, but for those that appreciate the streamlined interface and "flat" styling of Landcam, it will be a new mainstay on your device.

The home screen for Landcam is the camera and it has everything the built-in camera has, with basic, clean logos that really pop from the screen. Once you take a photo, or if you tap the library button you'll go to the cropping screen, from which you can slide the screen up with a swipe to see your library. Swiping to the right will go to the next step, editing -- where you can change color tones and style, lighting, or add borders, fonts, sketches, and more. There are far more features mixed in here than you would expect and they all work quite well as you move down the production list toward saving and sharing your photos.

Landcam is a studio in an app, and while it doesn't have any features that other photo apps do not, they are all organized, and executed in a way that is unique and exceptionally well done. If you are looking for a new photo taking app or if you would like to get rid of the clunky interface in your current camera and photo editing app, download Landcam.
