A new mobile focus called Camu, rising today, is designed to offer as a lightweight deputy to a iPhone’s default camera app while also charity a ability for users to revise and share photos some-more simply after a fact, though carrying to switch between other applications. The app rather competes with long-time renouned camera apps like Camera+ or Camera Awesome, though with a simpler, some-more streamlined underline set.

“Most of a camera apps in a marketplace are filled with difficult settings,” explains Ilkka Teppo, CEO during Sumoing, a association behind a Camu app.

“At same time a messaging solutions are built text-first or for photo-chatting,” he adds. “We wanted to emanate a loyal mobile-first camera knowledge – severe a assumptions that capturing, modifying and promulgation photos and videos has to be in apart apps.”


Of course, Apple’s native iPhone Camera app also offers some of these functions in a latest chronicle of a iOS handling system, iOS 8, approaching in September. You can change camera modes, supplement filters, and afterwards bound into your Photo Gallery with a daub to make a accumulation of edits or share a print around iMessage, email, iCloud, AirDrop, Facebook, Twitter or Flickr.

So Sumoing is right in believing a total underline set of snapping, modifying and pity is something users want. But since of a similarities, it will have to contest via the knowledge of regulating Camu, as good as a additional features.

These embody things like a “super-focus” mode for adding depth-of-field to images, a opposite set of filters, a ability to supplement content to photos, a ability to spin photos into collages in genuine time (also renouned among Instagram users), and a “selfie” mode that automatically shoots a print when no some-more transformation is manifest in a frame.

After modifying your photos or videos, we can afterwards share your media and discuss secretly with friends on Camu, or post some-more publicly on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

The company, stoical of a group of designers and engineers hailing from a Nokia cluster in Helsinki, Finland, already has a decent lane record when it coms to mobile apps. Sumoing’s first iOS app Repix, that combines print modifying and painting, was launched in early 2013 and has now grown to over 12 million installs.

Sumoing has a tiny volume of seed appropriation and now also generates income around Repix, that has helped to account Camu’s creation. Camu’s business indication is not nonetheless set in stone, however, though Teppo says they see “lots of opposite options” for it in a future. We’d design those to embody in-app purchases, though zero is confirmed.
