    "The photography app that came installed on my camera was not working very good so I went looking for a replacement. That is when I came across Open Camera so I decided to give it a try. I have been very pleased with the results. This app allows me to take so many different types of shots compared to my pre-installed software that I am more actively looking for pictures to take. I love this app!"
