Camera360 passes the 100 million user mark

We knew that Camera360 was a popular Windows Phone photography app but apparently it has become the first mobile photography app to pass 100 million global users.

Granted Windows Phone can't take claim to all these users with Camera360 being available over on iOS and Android devices. But still, 100 million is impressive.  

Now that Camera360 has built a rather hefty following the developer will now turn their attention from being a photography tool to a multi-service provider.  There is a Cloud service in Beta that will allow for off-device storage in the works. Not sure when and if we'll see this feature come to market.

Camera360 is a uniquely styled camera app that has a nice assortment of filters and effects that can be applied as you capture new photos with your Windows Phone 8 device.  The app utilizes a creative compass, much like a dial on a DSLR, to spin you through the various filters and effects.  Camera360 also has a Photo Diary section where you can view all your photos, share them via social networks, edit the photos and view a photo calendar that sorts your images by the date taken.

Where apps such as ProShot is more oriented to giving you more control over the camera's settings, Camera360 takes aim more so at the creativity and organization side of things with it's filters and Photo Diary.  If you're looking for an alternative to the native Windows Phone camera app, Camera360 is worth considering. 

Camera360 is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device and you can find it here (opens in new tab) in the Windows Phone Store.
