Technology has come a long way since the invention of the inbuilt camera on your phone. At first, the hype was just about how something so small could take pictures. Afterwards, people started editing their pictures to get a better quality photo. Eventually, that need for editing had to be transferred to our smartphones so that it would be easier to edit directly from our devices and then camera apps were invented.
What exactly does a camera app do?
One can edit their pictures, crop, add borders, frames, and filters to make your photos look better.
Here is a list of the top 10 camera apps so you don’t have to go hunting for them:
1. Camera Zoom Fx
