While tech junkies love to pick their phones on the basis of hardware etc. most people just like to go for the phone that offer the best features in terms of the things they use daily. That is why major OEMs often focus more on things like camera features rather than making the smartphone developer friendly or adding something truly innovative. In any case, these features do help the smartphone make more sales. One example of this has to be the MotionShot introduced by Sony in their latest flagship device, Sony Xperia Z1.
Just as the name suggests, MotionShot is a feature that allows the owners of Xperia Z1 to capture motion of an object in a single image. The result is something that has been portrayed in the picture. While I agree that this isn’t really an essential feature or something that fascinating for me personally, there are those out there who were and still in awe of this feature and wish that their phone had it as well. If by any chance you fall in the latter category then you have fair reason to rejoice as thanks to the efforts of xperiaz2 (XDA Developers member) they can now port this feature to any device running Android Ice cream Sandwich or above.
You just need to flash in the apk file which can be downloaded from the link given at the end of this article (just like you would any other app) and you’ll be all set to try out the MotionShot out. The app itself is fairly easy to use and offers no bugs or glitches to speak of, at least that is what the little amount of personal testing I did revealed to me on my Galaxy S3.
The only drawback of the app is that it requires 500 Mb of free space on your device to install. So, if you can spare that much space then you should think about trying this app out. As for me, I kind of deleted the whole thing after giving it a brisk yet thorough examination as quite honestly freeing up 500 Mb of space for a simple feature that I won’t probably ever use, is quite preposterous but then again we all have different needs so don’t let my cynicism stop you from appreciating the wonderful port of the MotionShot feature.
