• First release | Android Studio 3.x | Android 5.0+
• Backend with Parse SDK hosted on https://back4app.com


CamFun is a Universal full app template with custom camera controller, collage frames and editing tools to enhance your pictures as you wish. Plus, it has a nice feature called Wall Of Fame, which works with Parse Server and may get your app popular on the Play Store because of its challenging original system. Pictures that get more likes on the Wall Of Fame will move automatically on the top of it, and all users can check received likes on their own Profile screen, log in, sign up for a new account and have fun by showcasing their works to the other subscribed people!

Since its backend is by Parse Server, you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO PHP files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for server side.

CamFun is very easy to customize, Storyboard, Universal, native XCode project, Swift language, Parse SDK hosted on back{4}app

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?
