The autofocus feature of the default camera application on the Samsung S3 is often bad: pictures are blurry, typically when taking a picture of some text printed on paper.

I'm looking for an Android application (free if possible) that can take pictures and whose autofocus is better (i.e. fewer blurry pictures) than the default camera application.

I would recommend you to use Camera Zoom FX. This software is packed with powerful features... It's premium though..
