There’s no shortage of camera apps available in the Play Store but few have the name SmugMug and “awesome” attached to them. That’s why we’re taking note that the good folks at SmugMug just dropped word on their blog that their Camera Awesome app is finally out of beta and on the Play Store. Camera Awesome has been downloaded by more than 20 million iPhone users and is almost always near the top of every “best iPhone camera app” list. The developers say the demand for an Android release has been steady every single day and that means today is your lucky day.

So why Camera Awesome? “Camera Awesome is your ticket to taking great photos at any moment of the day. It’s a powerful, easy-to-use camera app perfect for photographers (but easy enough for non-photographers). It’s for creative people who love capturing their everyday memories and sharing them with those who matter most.”

There the usual shooting options apply…single, panorama, burst, timer, “Awesomize” button and a ton of filters, textures and frames. The app is releasing for $2.99 and is absolutely worth the download if you are an avid smartphone shooter looking for the optimum experience on your ummm, smartphone. Well, that is…until VSCO arrives on Android.
