Cameras on smartphones are increasingly being improved to meet customer demands of better quality pictures in order to document everything they need and want to. In lieu to this, apps have also surfaced that provide features and effects not available on any regular camera app.
Some of these camera apps have even proven so impressive that they have replaced the original built in smartphone app as the norm in picture taking.
