Hope some come to WP I'm a iphone user but I think WP should have some of these great apps. Nokia = best camera

Agreed! Considering how Windows Phone and Windows will soon be unified, devs will definitely get on board. Mainstream apps like Instagram are encouraging devs to develop for the platform as well, and we've seen great apps such as Camera360 and Hipstamatic Oggl being offered. The more the merrier! Camera apps are awesome!

I dont get using the front camera if you want a good self shot. I have become a master with a self timer using the back camera.

Facey Camera is one of the best Android camera applications I’ve ever tried. Very cool features for the capturing and amazing photo editor. This app has unique feature of taking pictures when face(s) are detected. So, You don’t have to worry that someone will be left out of focus even if You capture with back camera. Also it has an awesome photo editor that has lot of different filters and tools for tuning of the photo.

I would recommend COFIE as well to add to this list.. Cofie, the collaborative selfie app, ensures distance will not stop you from taking selfies with those you love. Check - cofie.me
