    The only think I've noticed about the Nokia camera app is its slower. I haven't noticed a huge difference in pictured. Can anyone tell me where the difference is? Maybe I'm not using it right.

    There isn't a difference with same settings between the two. The difference is that Nokia cam allows you to adjust other camera settings. Like focus and exposure. Those other settings allow you to take better photos.

    But apart from that I found that I can't tap to focus with the built in app

    "maybe I'm not using it right". Are you trying to take better photos, or are you just looking for functionality differences?

    Ok, here's my list:

    Nokia Pro Cam/Beta*-
    -Tap to focus (u know this 1)
    -Infinite picture taking after first pic, (holding cam button down or half pressed)
    - videos play automatically in camera roll*
    -adjustments for focus, exposure, etc.
    -Timer
    -Bracketing (used for HDR photos)
    - Framing grids and and photo review
    - Video/ audio bass filtering (make your subject sound clearer by taking out harsher sounds, bass.


    Built-in Cam
    -Allows you to disable continuous focusing. Great when your subject isn't close to you. Hate it when you see videos but always see the camera trying to focus.

    The best "beginners" tips can be found under "tutorial" within the app. Just apply those settings to your pics and you'll be fine. Make sure to post some pics and feel free to ask anything.

    Nokia Camera can also save to RAW.

    I don't know if the default app uses the oversampling algorithms that Nokia Camera does. I'm also not sure it supports the zooming.

    BTW, to take better pictures:

    Nokia Camera app also allows you to capture images using DNG RAW format, which gives you much more post capture options.
