Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

2 ★I've used this app for a long time with great success. However, I recently bought a new phone, and it won't save to my external sd card no matter what settings I try. Storage access framework is on. It will save to internal storage. I even reinstalled the app. No go.
5 ★In almost all phones there is only one flash, which is located on rear side.. Can you add "screen as a lamp" (like what GCam features) - for selfie illumination? You app is very helpful, especially in solving "horrible sound quality in recorded videos" -issue, as it allows us to record unprocessed audio. Wonderful work!
1 ★Looks like my last review was deleted so here we go again. This app has stopped working after the last android update. It works randomly but more often than not is completely useless. All attempts to fix it have failed and unfortunately this is the last time I will be buying a Google phone.
3 ★I use repeat mode to take dozens of pics in a session. Recently, when repeat mode starts taking pics, the screen only shows the first shot taken and doesn't update the screen live. It takes the shots OK, but I'm taking them blindly. This feature is literally the reason I use this app, I hope it's fixed soon.
1 ★I'll never ever recommend this app to someone this app has made me crazy i made 30-30 min videos with my external mic everything went well but then i could not play the video it showed can't ppay video and video format was not supported my whole hardwork went in drain because of this app..if i had 0 star rating i would give it that ... no VLC or MX player can play my video i try to change the format and what not...very bad app
5 ★Best 3rd party camera app! My camera stopped letting me use flash. So i finally just downloaded a 3rd party app. And this one is wayyy better than my stock camera on my lg stylo 2. Yes i said lg stylo 2. Made my piece o junk a little better. And it doesnt cut off my music on my blutooth speaker when i hit record on a video. Thats what i always wanted!! 5 stars for sure
3 ★Its ok, I use it to take smaller size photos for work. The focus can be very poor at times and the exposure adjustment is quite bad and really needs work. Why no auto flash? 3 star app in my opinion. It is also very poor on close up video focus, actually not poor, totally useless.
5 ★It's an amazing Camera 📸 App for my ZTE Axon 10 Pro!! 😱 It's extremely simple to use yet feature-packed!! 😁 The App page says it contains Ads but I've seen none so far! Does it have Ads at all? 🤔 Anyway, I wish to support the developers in any way I can! ❤️
5 ★Open Camera is awesome. We use it daily for our jobs. The flexibility it gives to mark photos, label images leaves it really hard for someone to challenge the image.
5 ★Was able to switch my audio from the webcam mic to an external usb mic. This is the only program that I found that can do this. Was succesful with X88 RK3318 chip TV box. But for the x88 RK3368, there seems to be a problem. Open Camera would close the webcam after successful initiation.
5 ★If u r vlogging and don't have a pro camera use this app in your phone .... the quality of your content will be so much better !!! It's so easy to use and it's just amazing!!! It will give u the quality that even your original camera can give .
1 ★I dont have a flashlight anymore. It is a great camera app. One app deals with security and notifies me to uninstall. Another app tells me its a virus. Please fix the app as i will uninstall when i need flashlight and reinstall when i need the camera
