Camera ICS is an interesting and very useful application available on Google Play that you can get for free. A paid version named Camera ICS+ is also available that is Ad free but I guess free version should serve the purpose for most people. Apparently this app is basically a direct rip of the AOSP version of the camera app from the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. So it supports all the interesting features that are available in the AOSP Android 4.0.3 flavor. It also means that this is most useful for the devices which don’t have stock ICS camera app Read More >

One of the very basic and key features missing in the earlier versions of the Android (i.e., Gingerbread) was the ability to quickly take screenshots and save them. This was a very noticeable omission and users had to resort to install 3rd party tools to get this functionality. And many of these tools required the root privileges on the device for the proper functioning. Fortunately for us Google has removed this limitation in the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as it allows to take the screenshots using a quick key press combination which not requires any 3rd party tool Read More >
