There's no difference in picture quality either!
I agree the moto x camera app is the best interface I've used. Google camera is too hard to switch modes and has needless letterboxing.

Guess i should have been specific. It's the "carousel" settings thing i just find off-putting, that's all. I just prefer the Google camera version.

Very good really should say "CAMERA quality improved". Simply edit your first post, and click "GO ADVANCED". Then you can rename the thread.

Are you able to assign the "shake to start" gesture to opening a new camera app?

You can if your phone is rooted and Xposed is installed. There is a module called twisty switch that allows you to launch other apps with the wrist twist, instead of the stock camera app.

Probably should mention that the app A: Uses only 6MP of the 12 the X is capable of. And B: Duplicates the official Gallery app.
