Camera360 is an eye-catching camera app for Windows Phone 8 that features a Compass Tool that makes it easy to switch camera scenes/modes on the go.

The photography app was recently updated to version 1.7.0 which addresses a few bug fixes and performance improvements as well as adding a sexy lip effect and new instant preview feature.

Camera360 has always had a live preview of any filter effects but with the instant preview feature, the effect is displayed intermittently to save battery power.  The effect filter will be displayed just for a few seconds or when you half-press the shutter button.  According to the developer, the savings are generally in the 50% range.

The sexy lip filter is available in the Portrait mode and as expected, adds a deepens any red colors in the picture.  Ideal if you want your subject to have richer lip color or for non-portraits if you want the reds in a photo to have a little "pop".

If you have not tried Camera360, you need to.  It is a very user-friendly camera app for Windows Phone 8 and the update simply adds to the attraction.

Camera360 is a free app and available for Windows Phone 8.  You can find your copy of Camera360 here in the Windows Phone Store.
