Alternatively, the app can access your GPS to record your runs that way too. The app then pairs you up against the computer to simulate runs against an opponent.

Fast Camera is a Windows Phone photography app that allows you to capture up to 25 HD photos per second. Once captured you can skim through the images and save the best photos to your phone.

Along with the burst feature, Fast Camera also has a time-lapse mode, a self-timer and stealth mode. Fast Camera has experienced a good amount of success over on iOS and at first glance, it should have similar success on the Windows Phone platform.
