Focal camera application comes out of CyanogenMod

Not all is good news after the announcement of the creation of software company CyanogenMod and its partnership with Oppo to become a standalone OS. The Focal camera app, the big star of the first phase of Nemesis, was pulled from the custom ROM right after its creator Guillaume Lesniak's departure from the project. Internal conflicts caused the developer to leave the young company, and a few days later a beta version of Focal was made available on the Google Play Store.

The application is still in the testing phase, so some options do not work well (Panorama mode, for example). Focal even includes PicSphere, its own version of popular PhotoSphere (at that time exclusive to Google), focus by tapping the desired screen point, a side menu by swiping right and double-tapping to take a photo while Make a video.

Our moderator Jefferson tested the app, and it looks like this: "On my S2 Lite (CM 4.2.2) it opened the normal camera, but when I tested PicSphere, it unplugged the cam and it just went back on when I restarted. 15 (CM 4.3) the camera didn't even open ". A big downside of the app is that it works only with Android 4.1 or higher.

Anyone who wants to try the beta on their own, here is the link. Then tell us what you think in the comments, okay?
