Camera Launcher for Nexus 7 is as self-explanatory as it is useful — it creates an icon in the launcher that lets you access the tablet's hidden front-facing camera software. Since Asus omitted a rear-facing camera for presumed cost-saving reasons, a dedicated camera app is non-essential, but the functionality is still baked into the software. Since you're likely to have a smartphone on your person anyway, the lack of a camera app is more of an inconvenience than a serious issue, but if you'd like to snap some pictures with that 1.3-megapixel camera, MoDaCo's app will let you do just that.
