HTC allowing third party developers to use the Duo camera on the HTC One (M8) for their apps
HTC is letting third party developers use the Duo Camera on the back of the HTC One (M8). Developers can now write apps for the new handset with the APIs for DualLens and DimensionPlus already included. That will allow for third party apps that take advantage of the creative refocusing of a photo to create the blurry bokeh effect.

With the DimensionPlus API, code jockey's can develop third party apps that benefit from the ability of a photograph to display a different angle than the one used in the original shot.  By tilting the phone while the phone is on the screen, you can see the same subjects from a different angle even if you took only one picture.

It should be interesting to see how developers employ Duo Camera in their apps written expressly for the HTC One (M8). If you're a developer interested in writing for the Taiwan manufacturer's new camera setup, click on the sourcelink below.
