    The Focal is just part one (or phase one) of Nemesis. nemesis is a suite of apps which overhauls the user experience, compared to limited features in stock android. This includes camera, and possibly other apps like Dialer, contacts and other stuff too. Some people stick to manufacturer skins like touchwiz because of some extra features like better camera app compared to CM. This aims to solve that issue. There’s a lot more to come 🙂
