Which camera apps are people using? Curious to also know what the latest version of Google Camera is that you found can work (fully) with our phone?
I managed to get 3.2 working (only 720p recording though).

Any recommendations are highly appreciated.

I have been testing out Camera zoom FX, it seems to have all the features that the N4 can use, but i don't like the way it handles HDR.
The thing is that Google Camera (at least the 3.2 version i have) is the quickest to open (<3 sec), which is something I care about.

Open Camera is also ok, while "perfectly clear" is complete **** (which i was very surprised about).

Does Nexus 4 support Camera 2 API to use HDR+? I doubt it but I ask just to be sure.

I never found a complete answer for this, but what i understood is that N4 does not go beyond LEGACY level for Camera 2 API. (other options being LIMITED and FULL).
This may be due to firmware issues, sensor limitation, or DSP/ISP.

So, max I think devs can do is make an app install on the N4 but none of the "extra" features will work (like manual controls, RAW images).

I did want to mention that there are apps out there that seem to "reproduce" some of the features of more modern cameras.
For example burst mode, or some exposure settings, even ISO. (e.g., Camera FV-5).

This is mainly why I asked this question here, to find out if there is a full feature packed app out there that N4 users prefer. Since most of these camera apps might have more features than the stock google cam one but the end results are crap...

Google Camera 4.1.006 seems to work fine if you have a ROM running 6.0+ (I think). I have encountered a few bugs though.
