[APP] Camera & Galery [Non-root users][Advanced features] [17.01.16]

I've started this thread because this one isn't updated by OP quite long time.

What's this?
Two most useful moto apps which you can install just like normal apps. No root or recovery required. I personally have tested apps on euphoria rom, everything works perfect.
update: unfortunately you can't install gallery on stock rom without root. For doing that you have to delete the original gallery first.

What's the difference between this apps and the original ones?
I've modded them a bit. See the list of features bellow. Besides that package names are different (com.nomotorola.camera and com.nomotorola.MotGallery2).

List of features:
  • Advanced settings (little ladybug icon in the right bottom corner appears when you swipe out the settings wheel).
    You can read more about some features here
  • QR, barcode and business cards recognition. "Just place the camera over the item and the scan will begin". As default it was only enabled for Moto X (2nd Gen.), Moto X Pro, DROID Turbo, and Moto Maxx/Turbo devices.
  • Highlight Reel - "a collection of your photos and videos set to music, and easily share it with friends and family."
    As default it was only enabled on Moto X Style/Play, Moto X (1st. and 2nd Gen.), DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx/Turbo and Moto X Pro devices.
  • Face Recognition - "Tag people appearing in photos and videos, and organize them automatically."
    As default it was only enabled on Moto X Style/Play devices.

  • What if I want to use this new features but I'm on stock rom and already have preinstalled this apps?
    You can root your device and install Moto CheckBox module
  • How to enable slow-mo capturing on non-stock roms?
    That's only for moto G. Ask the OP from the thread I gave the link above to edit media_profiles.xml for your phone if you're unable to capture slowmo.
  • Why have you ported moto G camera and gallery apps instead of porting them from Moto X?
    The apps are the same for Moto E/X/G/Pure/Style/Droid etc. So no matter from which device I port. They are all the same.
  • The camera settings don't respond when I try to press on it
    Bring back dpi to default value.

Galery(v 520019): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxyeOicVTLTUY2ZiUEF6WUJtMVU/view?usp=sharing
Old versions

New version of the camera. I can't test it so I can't tell what's new. Please report if you find something new or interesting.
Some people report that focusing has been improved
And seems like support for KK was dropped
New version of the camera.
New thing I noticed is in the developer settings you can enable "Show ISO in wheel". I think that will be useful for some people
Fixed gallery FC on Highlight Reel action. But now if you are on stock motorola rom you can't install gallery without root. To install modified gallery you should uninstall the original one at first (from system/app (or priv-app) and data/app) only then you'll be able to install the modified apk.
For non stock users nothing changes. You still able to install apk just like normal app.
Fixed issue when gallery can not be installed on stock roms
Fixed gallery crash. Re download the apk.
Initial release.

OP on the original camera app thread kind of disappeared from the forums, I'll add a link to this on the 2nd post there with the camera settings explanation so there is some continuity between that thread and this one.

Thanks a lot for your hard work on this!

Camera works fine on SlimLP 0.8. One issue with camcoder- SloMo recording doesn't start, says it can't start recording because mic is in use by another application (on the other hand it doesn't FC)

Wysłane z mojego XT1039

it works great!
Is it possible to replace the original camera and gallery?
only with root. just delete original apps from system/app
If you don't have root enabled, you can disable the original apps so that they will not appear in your app menus etc.

By the way, congrats and many thanks to the original developer, and to S0bes as well for continuing this project!

Seems like this gallery is unable to delete files. After erasing they disappear from gallery but remains on device (I can see them in file explorer), so after restart they are present again. Anyone else facing this issue?
