The Android smartphone market certainly doesn’t lack manufacturers, but new ones always have a chance to stand out and Nextbit managed to do that with their Robin phone. The sleek gadget is distinguished by implementing a cloud-based app storage and besides its pretty design and decent price, it has quite a collection of exclusive apps. Two of them are not so exclusive anymore, so it’s now possible to install the Nextbit Robin Gallery and Camera apps on any Android.

More often than not, when such apps are truly good, someone manages to make them available for the rest of Android users and it happened for the Nextbit Robin too. Developer Nicolo D’Evangelista, a member of XDA-Developers ported the Nextbit Robin Gallery and Camera apps so we can install the Nextbit Robin Gallery and Camera apps on any Android handset running 6.0 Marshmallow or higher.

Besides Android Marshmallow, you will also need ‘Unknown Sources’ enabled (under Settings – > Security, or Lock Screen and Security) in order to sideload the APK files.

With that out of the way, download the Nextbit Gallery and Camera APKs from the links below.

To get started, simply download the Nextbit Gallery and Camera installers, then tap either of the “Download complete” notifications. From there, press “Install,” then tap “Done,” and repeat this process for the second app as well.

The Gallery app has a clean UI, partly using Material Design guidelines, and browsing through photos is a seamless experience.

The Camera app also has a minimal UI, but if you take a peek under the buttons you will find plenty of options. The + button displays two additional options, and the grid icon allows you to change the shooting mode. You can easily switch between auto camera, video or manual camera and the latter option provides various parameters you can adjust such as ISO, exposure and white balance.
