[App] Focal (Beta)

Focal is a fully featured camera app looking to provide the most features on the most phones possible, including device-specific features on some devices.

Focal app is the official release from the ex-CyanogenMod app.It features:
A photo and video mode, supporting many features (burst mode, timer mode, scene mode, shutter speed on Sony devices, …)
A panorama mode, currently semi-broken
A PicSphere mode, open-source replacement of Google’s PhotoSphere, to do 360° sphere shots
A review drawer, by sliding from the top of the screen (in portrait). It shows your latest pictures.In photo mode, you also have access to a few tools, such as automatic picture enhancement (auto-awesome), or a rule of thirds overlay. On some devices, settings such as Color adjustment, HDR and a manual light measure point are also available. Double tapping the screen will put your in quick shot mode, where tapping the screen anywhere will take a picture.In video mode, high-framerate video is also possible.Need help?

Tips :
You can slide a widget’s left handle to the right to close it
You can swipe twice to temporarily hide open widgets, and swipe back to recover them
You can pin widgets on your main screen
You can scroll the sidebar

Notes :
This app targets mostly phones, but should mostly work on tablets.

It is fully open source (GPL), and the sources can be downloaded at

It is a BETA, which means you might encounter bugs and crashes. I’m mostly working on newer devices (Galaxy S3 and +), so older devices might encounter more issues than recent ones.

I do this in my free time, and this is a free software. Instead of rating 1 star because there is a bug, you should do a constructive comment, or raise the issue to me on twitter, @xplodwild. Or even better, fork the project and fix the problem 🙂

Even if some parts of the app sucks for now, they’ll improve over time.

Focal user reviews :
Great Very glad to see this unshackled from CM. Deserves 5 stars for the work which is outstanding and already creates a much better experience than some OEM camera apps. Keep it up and screw all these naisayers that 1 star the app which is in Beta.
Very good app! After the last update it’s more stable and reliable. I really like this app, it’s the first time i have obtained a better result than a nokia lumia 820 camera. In automatic mode the app can use 2500 iso! (Samsung galaxy s3
Delete on swipe with no warning?? Slightly less grumpy as i restored my photo from a backup… but the UI for deleting photos is way too hidden and unexpected to be so destructive. swiping one way browses photos, the other deletes them with no explanation or possible undo. Love the app other than this.
