New apps from GrapheneOS were originally noticed by XDA. They are called Secure PDF and Secure Camera. Apart from being extra secured, the Camera app provides numerous features. It works perfectly with the line of Google Pixel phones. You can scan the QR codes with its help. The app does not ask anything apart from access to your camera which is needed for its work. If you want to tag your photos and geotagging is turned on, the app may ask your permission to use it as well. Meanwhile, Secure PDF does not require any permission from you. It still provides all the features that were indicated.

These apps are open-source. You may already check out their codes on Github. Both of them can be found on Google Play Store. Users can download it free of charge and compare the features with paid alternatives. There are still no similar apps on iOS, but you can search for reliable alternatives.
