Motorola's camera app in Google Play Store gets an update
As a way to get changes to the Motorola Moto X camera to users quickly, without having to wait for carriers to push out an update, Motorola posted an app in the Google Play Store. The app has now been updated to version 3.1.41.2 which brings with it some changes. The updated version of  Motorola Camera adds manual controls for focus and exposure. Also, the app now offers a locked exposure while you're taking a panorama shot, support for additional languages and the usual bug fixes. With the update, knowledgeable photographers can have better controls over their photographs. Others can count on the enhanced touch-to-focus feature that automatically sets exposure based on the light the camera senses from the camera lens.

Motorola has tried very hard to improve the camera with the Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto G. The double wrist twist to turn on the camera was one of the innovations offered by the wholly owned Google subsidiary. Past Motorola models featured slow-launching camera apps, especially when compared to snappers found on other Android handsets.

Kudos to Motorola for the whole idea of bypassing carrier testing to get updates to customers faster. Certainly owners of the Moto X would rather take a quick trip to the Google Play Store to update the camera as opposed to waiting for an OTA update. For those with the flagship Motorola Android model, the update to the 10MP snapper is waiting for you at the Google Play Store.
