Panasonic is a fairly diverse electronics company. We initially wanted this list to be for Lumix owners much like our Nikon and Canon apps were. However, it turns out that most people looking for Panasonic apps have more in mind than just cameras. Thus, we have added a few additional apps to the list in order to help everybody that we can. Here are the best Panasonic apps for Android.
Adobe Lightroom is one of the more popular photo editing apps for serious photographers. Panasonic makes some of the highest end cameras out there with the GH series. Lightroom is a good way to edit some of those photos on the go. It has support for RAW files, support for its desktop equivalent, and one-touch enhancements. Some image processing is only available on newer flagships. However, it's good for most serious photo editing unless the photo has serious problems.
Amazon is a decent place for Panasonic stuff. You can find a variety of products from cameras to camera lenses, TVs, blu-ray players, etc. Amazon is good place to buy this kind of stuff. Their return policy is fairly liberal. That means you can return stuff if you don't like it. Between those things, it's an excellent place to find Panasonic stuff. Especially accessories like remotes, camera lenses, etc.
AnyMote is one of the more unique Panasonic apps. It's a universal remote app for your phone. Your phone needs an IR blaster. Additionally, your equipment needs an IR receiver. The app supports over 9,000 devices. That includes TVs, air conditioners, and all kinds of other electronics. That includes many Panasonic devices. It's a good way to turn your phone into a remote for those things.
B&H Photo is another online retailer that sells plenty of Panasonic products. It's especially good for audio, video, and photography equipment. Like Amazon, their return policy is pretty decent just in case you don't like what you buy. Additionally, the app is gorgeous. It's among the best designs we've seen in a smartphone app. Their selections are good and the prices are generally reasonable.
Cadrage Director's Viewfinder isn't one of the normal Panasonic apps. It's a viewfinder app that helps you frame shots. It emulates cameras and various lenses. You can plan your shots before setting up your camera. It is compatible with a ton of cameras, including most Nikon, Canon, RED, and Panasonic cameras. It's fairly expensive. Make sure you try it within the refund time to make sure it works for you.
DSLR Tools isn't a typical Panasonic camera app. However, it can be useful to those who own a camera. It helps you keep track of things like the proper times of day to shoot, your various settings for various shooting environments, and more. It's really only useful for DSLR owners. It also has advertising in the free version. However, you can pay the $1.49 and remove that. A note taking app may be more useful overall. This one is definitely good for camera stuff though.
HyperFocal Pro is another Panasonic camera app. It works a lot like DSLR Tools. You can keep track of your calculations, camera settings, and more. The developer updates the app consistently. That means it should include the latest Lumix cameras. You can also set up profiles for quick reference later. It's also entirely free with no in-app purchases or advertising.
Magic Lumix ViewFinder is like a cheaper version of Cadrage. It's a good Panasonic camera app. It emulates Lumix cameras and lenses with the camera on your phone. You can use the app to frame shots and scout locations before setting up your actual camera gear. It's compatible with many Lumix cameras, including most of the GH line. It also allows you to store additional data like focal length and the like. It's not perfect, but it should do nicely for most. It's one of the better Panasonic apps.
Twinone Universal Remote is another excellent app for Panasonic device owners. This one works with most TVs, cable boxes, and more. That includes Panasonic products. It's also good to have around for other devices too, like hotel room TVs. It has a simple interface. The set up should be fairly simple as well. After that, you can control your TV or whatever from your phone. Your phone does have to have an IR blaster on it. Otherwise, it should just work. It's completely free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, though.
Panasonic is probably the best supplier of Panasonic apps. It has dedicated apps for its Lumix lineup of cameras, its TVs, Blu-Ray players, and more. Some of them are actually pretty decent. Many aren't so great. It all really depends on what you need. Their TV remote and Blu-Ray remote apps aren't so great. However, their Lumix apps are about the only ones in their category so they have to be at least somewhat decent. We recommend checking out Panasonic's offerings before looking elsewhere.
