Bloatware just got a lot better on our Windows Phones or at least in China. Camera360 has announced a partnership with Nokia that will have the camera app pre-installed on the Nokia Lumia 925 sold in China.
Camera360 is a fantastic Windows Phone app that is part photo editor, photo organizer and camera app. There is no doubt that Camera360 will compliment the Lumia 925's camera very well.
In a brief statement sent to Windows Phone Central by Camera360, Marketing Director Gary Gu commented,
"We are very happy and honoured to announce this partnership with Nokia. This is certainly a very high recognition for our product, and a great achievement for everybody in Camera360 and those who support Camera360. We are making continuous improvements to make our products better and the most important thing is, we will continue to provide free photography application to users."
Freeware or bloatware has come a long ways since the days of Windows Mobile and it's nice to see manufacturers of Windows Phones seek out quality apps to provide, pre-installed on their phones.
Hopefully this growing partnership with Nokia will extend beyond the Chinese market. On the plus side, Camera360 is a free app for Windows Phone 8 devices that don't have the photography app pre-installed.
If you haven't tried Camera360 on your Windows Phone 8 device, it's worth a look. You can find it here in the Windows Phone Store.
