This highly customizable app even allows users to upload photographs to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, as well as a host other social media platforms. The app is easy to use and learn, with some advanced tools taking a bit more practice to get a handle on, making the apps best suitable for children ages 7 and older.

this app is good for kids who need help with:


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations

Awesome CameraBecause Camera Awesome has so many options for customizing photographs, users should approach their creations with an open mind, remaining flexible in their use of the apps' myriad of tools. Users can experiment with a variety of filter options before they develop the final product, and a simple change in filter or color presentation can drastically affect the overall tone of the image. The message conveyed can be a simple expression of mood, like melancholy or joy. A darker filter would work well with the former, while a brighter filter would convey a more uplifting picture. Users should try to make varied use of such effects, as overuse can lead to repetitive, unimaginative portrayals. Users who instead become familiar with the benefits of each filter can create an environment of experimentation that leads to a more diverse, interesting range of pictures.


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Though photography tends to be a solitary experience, Camera Awesome adds a social element to an otherwise singular activity. The app allows users to upload all of their pictures to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram -- just to name just a few. Users can receive feedback on their pictures, and adjust their photo techniques to suit the trends and happenings within their social media community. If users want to garner more "likes," they must take into account how their photos will be received by others, imagining their photos as something more than an insular creation. A thorough understanding of memes and topical events mixed with creative intuition will ultimately result in an ability to cater photos to an online community.
