Xperia Z1 MotionShot Camera Ported to All Android 4.x Devices

One nifty app that was made exclusive to Sony’s latest flagship, the Xperia Z1, is the MotionShot camera. As its name suggests, it allows you to capture motion in a singular image, with a resulting similar to the featured image to the right. So although MotionShot doesn’t necessarily provide an absolutely essential function, it wouldn’t hurt to have it on other Android devices.

The good thing is, XDA Forum Member xperiaz2 has ported MotionShot to all devices running Android versions Ice Cream Sandwich and greater, meaning that the majority of Android devices will be able to create their own ‘motion shots’ with MotionShot. The port takes form as a simple APK that can be installed as you would with any other APK file.

The ported app is reported to be stable and working without issues, and this seems to be the case in my own personal testing. It should be noted that the app does require at least 500MB of free space on your phone in order to run.

Those looking to give this a shot should visit the original thread for more information.
