[Q] Is there a way to get S5 software/app for the S3?

Hi, I was wondering if there is an app or software that can be downloaded to the S3 that gives it the same features as the camera on the new S5 Galaxy, or do you just have to buy the S5 to get those features? Is there a camera app that will work as well as the S5?
The camera software is ok, but limited in some features & doesn't take good low light shots. The software for the camera I had before upgrading to 10.2.1 was much better.
I'm running CM 10.2.1 (tried to update to the latest snapshot ver.9 & it was buggy). No stable release available in months, only snapshots.

Thanks for any advice/comments/etc.

Camera on aosp/cm is never gonna be that good.. You can try lenovo camera, I tried this one on CM and it did seem better than cm camera, also snap camera HDR I've heard some good things about it but never tried it. If you want a better camera experience try using touchwiz, the stock camera is probably what will give you the best results

I'm not sure about the S5 camera port, but the Lenovo Camera App has tons of nice features.

Lenovo camera crashes
I download & tried using the Lenovo camera (See it Snap it) from the link provided, has a lot of nice features but everytime I tried to use it, it would crash, so I had to delete it.
Oh, well Guess I will wait till I upgrade to either the S4 or S5.
Thanks.

Keep an eye on Likewise. Development has resumed on the original, and once ready, one of us will port it over.
