I was looking for a better camera app since the ROM I am using has a pretty crappy one. I found Lenovo's Super Camera App to be pretty awesome. It even lets you record gifs.

I clicked the link for Lenovo's super camera & it took me to a website called mega & there was a file called SCG_arm_hd_std_sus.apk
I'm assuming this is the correct file for the camera app? The only option that I could choose to save it to my pc or to a cloud storage. So I saved it to my desktop PC. What is best way to get this over to my phone & install it?
Or would it be easier to follow the links via my phone & download/save to my phone?
Thanks.

Transfer using a USB cable or I can provide a qr code tomorrow that you can scan with a qr reader on your phone that you can download from the play store.

I have inserted a QR code in original post. Just scan it with your phone using an app from the play store (I use QR Droid). It'll take you to the Mega site the same as on your PC where you can download it or signup for 50 GB of free cloud storage and download the app to your phone and install from the app.

Thank You. I scanned the code & it took me to the mega site & I had to download the mega app & sign up for an account for free cloud storage. Lot of hoops to jump through. Finally got the camera app downloaded to phone & then it I went to install it wants permission to access all kinds of info. on phone & says it may make calls & send texts messages without my knowledge & these may cost $$. The app can read my messages & listen to my calls. Unless there is a way to disable these premissions, I am not comfortable with this app.
Have you had any problems with it or is there a way to deny access to this info & the app still work.
Sorry, I'm new to a lot of this more advanced stuff.
Thanks for your help.

That's more of a blanket "permission access" since the app has the ability to access social networks and websites which may be able to access those things from your phone. Using it as a camera and posting by other methods, you will not have any of those problems. There are some apps that you can download that restricts access for apps to specific resources. I know have used an xposed module that does this, just can't remember the name of it.

Thanks for sharing but, Is this a false positive?

In any case I'm also following these two threads:
