HTC Gallery update adds new Duo Camera effects for the HTC One (M8) and HTC Butterfly 2
An update to the HTC Gallery app in the Google Play Store should be of interest to those of you toting an HTC One (M8) or an HTC Butterfly 2. According to the changelog, the app brings new Duo Effects for Seasons and Foregrounder, and new typography for the Seasons edit mode. The six new effects for Foregrounder include Watercolor, Pastel, Ink, Draft, Retro and Color Beads. The four new effects for Season are Bubbles, Confetti, Roses and Light Points.

The new typography includes templates for Title Slide, Magazine, Album, Calendar and Movie. There are also some unamed changes that HTC One (M8) and Butterfly 2 users will stumble across while using these features.

The HTC Gallery app update does show how manufacturers (and by extension, customers) find it much easier to have system applications updated in the Google Play Store instead of waiting forever to have them included as part of a carrier sent update. If you own either phone, have you installed the update yet?

I wish HTC would stop f-ing itself and added a normal camera to it's next flagship

I like it, not everything is for everyone but there is a market for just about everything that's put out. I like the camera's abilities compared to my last phone (Evo LTE) I'm not a huge picture brat but the ones from this phone ain't bad. People forget how far along phone specs have come and the more features they get the bigger brats they become about what they have and don't have even tho they didnt have it before.

Quality has nothing to do with megapixels. Megapixels are for sizing / zooming. Get educated before saying big Mac is healthier.

And yet the M7 and M8 cameras are horrible.

No, they are good. Not great for sure.
