App allows Android users to have Live Photos-like feature
posted by Alan F. / Jan 05, 2016, 9:50 PM
Obviously, Camera MX can't use the same name, so it calls its new feature Live Shot and works the same way as Live Photos does. Unlike Apple's version, Android users are allowed some customization by deciding how far back they want the recording to start. And because Force Touch is not yet a widespread Android capability, the Live Shot is activated with a long-press on the display. The final shot can be shared via messaging apps and social media.
Camera MX is a free download from the Google Play Store. To install it on your phone running Android 4.3 or higher, simply click on the sourcelink. And when your iPhone 6s totin' buddy shows off Live Photos, you can come right back with Camera MX's Live Shot.

"And because Force Touch is not yet a widespread Android capability". Are you kidding us, Alan? Android had that capability since Eclair! http://m.pocketnow.com/2015/09
And Samsung's devices has made it even more popular with it's Air View and some S-Pen features!
Is it safe for me to say you're iBiased?

it's NOT about who has it first. It's the first to actuelly implement it right. iphone camera is always recording in the camera app making every shot come alive, on android you have to switch modes and then you lose the option of just taking a regular picture. You also lose detail in the gifs unlike iphone. Also other thing is apple has gotten support from other apps to make it where your live pictures isn't useless like a gif.

Haha, Alan clearly has been living under a rock for a while now, he never knows about a feature until his divine apple follows along.

What's funny is. All this new iPhone features I used back in the days of my note 3. 3D Touch, Live Photos are all gimmicks at best. I use my iPhone just like I've used any other iPhone. I don't use 3D Touch or live photos. It's gimmick, you guys should just accept it. Majority of people take normal pictures more than live photos. Android developers shouldn't follow blindly. This app will flop cos people will try it and later find out its usesless then delete it.
