Version #: 4.1.1

Date Released: 20130517

Developer: Androidslide

Price: 2.99

User Rating:

Camera Zoom FX from top developer androidslide is, hands down, THE best camera app available for android.  With a ton of features, it turns your standard cell phone camera into a powerful and lightning fast camera.


The Good

Camera Zoom FX is an impressive app in just about every aspect of its existence.  It is filled with features such as a horizon level indicator, tweakable autofocus, and the ability to use voice activated picture taking (no more selfies holding the camera)! Many of the picture effects and frames included with the app are available for live preview, with the ability to further customize pictures after the picture is taken.   There are numerous combinations for effects, as they can all be combined with ease. You can also choose to have each photo automatically saved to your phone’s memory, or set the option to let you pick and choose which photos you want to save after you take them.


The Bad

The worst thing about this app is that there are ads in the paid version, which makes absolutely no sense, but it is only a minor headache that is outweighed by the fantastic features it contains.


The Ugly Truth

Camera Zoom FX is easily the best camera app available on Google Play. There are literally tons of features (most of which I haven’t even mentioned in this review), and it’s only $2.99; that’s a steal.  I had no idea what I was missing out on by just using the standard android camera for taking pictures until I tested out this app.  It is more than just simple effects that makes this camera app worth it, and I highly suggest you give it a try.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes

Learning Curve:None

Who Is It For:Photo takers who want more out of their standard android camera

What I Like:Loaded with features

What I Don't Like:Ads in the paid version

Final Statement:Camera Zoom FX is easily the best camera app in the market, and I highly recommend downloading it.
