Review: HD Camera Ultra blows Android's default camera away

Unleash the full power of your smartphone or tablet camera with this outstanding app.

HD Camera Ultra adds many useful camera features and photography modes to your smartphone or tablet. The default Android camera app doesn't even come close to what this awesome photography app offers, so if you take a lot of photos on the go, you'll really want to try this out.

HD Camera Ultra borrows Android's default camera and adds powerful features to it. In addition to increasing the digital zoom to 3X, this app lets you change the focus mode, adjust exposure, auto-correct the white balance, and use shooting modes like night mode that you'd normally find on point-and-shoot cameras. When you take a picture, it saves to your default gallery just like Android's camera would. There is a banner ad that carves out some of your onscreen viewfinder, but it won't be noticeable on big-screen phones. There are no image editing features, but the app's settings menu recommends a random editing app that will do the work for you.

Once you get past those moneymaking quirks, you'll adore what this app does compared to Android's default camera. HD Camera Ultra will boost the quality and flexibility of your gadget's camera, making photo-shooting much more fun.
