Stylish & colorful camera
Large range of effects, various features, completely free
Confusing interface!, lags here and there

Candy Camera for Android is a camera app with lots of cute filters. The filters all have really cute names like SecretGarden or HappyTogether, which are almost as appealing as the filters themselves. You can swipe through, or shuffle through, the filters, or you can pick through different ones. It's important to realise that the filters are called "Film Effects" (the icon is a roll of film), and they are split into Selfie and Classic categories. Also, you are actually taking an original photo, so you can easily change the film effect later.
The user interface of Candy Camera is incredibly confusing - it is one of the most misleading I have ever seen. This really lets it down, because there is a lot you can do with this camera. There is a collage feature (don't confuse this with the symbol for showing gridlines - in the top menu!) This is more like a photobooth for selfies - it lets you take several photos, either manually or with an interval, and puts them side by side. I would prefer to be able to recover or pick the individual photos - but it doesn't seem to work that way. See that big colourwheel? That's has nothing to do with coloration - it's just a shutter button. Tapping the screen works as well.
There are some simple beautification features in Candy Camera, but they are pretty mediocore. "Whitening" simply increases the brightness of the photo. The other features (blemish removal and facelift) lack control, and you can't compare to the original photo. In here (bizarrely from the scissors icon - which usually means only simple edits like crop/rotate) you'll also find tools for creating defocusing the edges of the photo, or pixelating certain areas. The other options for editing photos are, again, to choose the 'Film Effect', to add lens glares or some floating hearts/stars (box icon), and to add stamps (star icon). There's loads of stickers to choose from, if you promise to tell your friends about Candy Camera - but you don't actually have to.
However, the navigation of the stickers makes it really hard to find what you're looking for. Overall, there are some really nice filters in Candy Camera, and you can create beautiful images with it, but it lets itself down by trying to do too much; and offering its many features in a totally counterintuitive way.

how to change the logo?

Do you mean to change the icon for the app? You can do this quite simply with a icon changer app, e.g. play.google.com/store/app...
