Cameringo has a lot of tools and features to offer to its users. Plus, it flaunts a simple yet powerful user-friendly interface. It also features its unique viewfinder wherein you can easily browse the photos that you’ve previously taken against the live image. Aside from this, the app also flaunts a wide variety of live photo effects, frames and borders. It even includes a wide range of fisheye lens effects like fish eye+, wide, sphere and loko.
With Cameringo, you can either use your rear-facing camera or front-facing camera to capture and edit photos. You can also use the app to edit your existing photos. It even flaunts a feature called “virtual flash” which is quite handy especially if you are taking photos in dark places. The said feature also works even if your device doesn’t have a built-in flash support.
Another thing that I like about Cameringo is that it can record and create GIFs. You can even apply the same filters and effects to your GIF animations. Plus, you can record GIFs that can last for 24, 40 to 60 seconds. There’s even a fast motion feature which is great for time-lapse photographs.
Apart from this, the app is also very suitable for avid Instagram users since you can easily crop your photos to square. That’s not all. The app also has a built-in image stabilizer. You can also take hands-free shots using its built-in timer.
All in all, this app goes beyond providing you with lots of stunning effects and filters. It’s a great camera replacement app since it’s fully-packed with features and options. It’s also very fast, stable and user-friendly. Plus, it has high quality filters. What I like most about it is that you can apply or preview the filters in real-time.
Functionality wise, I don’t really have any serious concerns regarding this app. It works very well. You will definitely not regret giving it a try. Just keep in mind that the app has two versions. The Lite version is available for free while the full version can be purchased at the Play Store for less than a dollar.
