  10. Works well on my rooted Xperia S. Photosphere is awesome! Only crashed when I touch the screen during a video recording .

  11. Downloaded as instructed. Works perfect on my HTC One X+. All features including Aspect ratio, Video quality, image adjustments, iso, camera options, image stamp ……many more. Camera scene options big plus. Panorama, HDR, Scene selections. I don’t know why you would want to go back to stock camera. I have not tested all of these options yet but I have them LOL. I will update and let you know. Thanks Android Advices for good article and app link.

  12. Installed smoothly on G-Note (N7000) running on Stock Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (India).
    No issues encountered so far. Works great in panorama as well as Photosphere mode.
    Haven’t tried out outdoor pictures yet. Indoor pictures has a problem in smooth stiching of all the images. But then that is probably because of camera position mis-alignment by me rather than a software issue.
    Great share. Thanks!
