APK Notes:

What's new:
- new icons
- cool animations when tapping toggles
- focus animation is present when camera refocuses after you move it (previously, it would refocus without visual cues)

Note: This APK came from the Lollipop preview on the Nexus 5, so it's missing some densities (which is why it's 10MB smaller). It installs and works fine on Android 4.4, but it may not be optimized for your exact device. You can always roll back if something doesn't work for you.

Update #1: Panorama and Photo Spheres may be crashy. We're looking into these crash reports.

Update #2: Rooted users can fix the crashes. If you're not rooted, do not install this APK. If you're rooted, follow these steps:
1. Download these missing libraries to your phone which are causing the crashes:
- liblightcycle.so
- librefocus.so
- libgcam.so
- libgcam_swig_jni.so
2. Then copy these libraries to /data/app-lib/com.google.android.GoogleCamera-2 (I suppose could also be named com.google.android.GoogleCamera-1 possibly). This way, you don't need to replace the libraries in /system/lib, and the .sos you've downloaded above should only affect the Camera app.
3. After you copy the .sos, make sure their permissions are set to at least 644 (rw-r-r-). Root Explorer does this by default, Total Commander, ES, and others don't.
4. Reboot if the crashes aren't fixed.
5. Then try the camera again - this should fix panorama, photosphere, HDR+, and Lens Blur crashes.

Update #3: Moto X users may want to tread carefully and skip this altogether.

Update #4: Added librefocus.so above to fix the Lens Blur crash.

Update #5: Added libgcam just in case as I've seen gcam-related crashes before.

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 6.1.021.220943556:
