Android app or camera app that does mean image stacking to simulate a long exposure shot?

I know that Huawei's camera app has a "silky water" mode that can simulate shooting at slower shutter speeds with an ND filter to blur out flowing water.

Unfortunately, my Samsung doesn't have this effect.

Are there 3rd party camera apps that have this effect or are there apps that can do this mean image stacking in post?

Years ago I give a try to SP Stacking Photo...a very rudimental app but really powerful.

You can shot 5-10 or more high iso noisy shots with a smartphone and than use SP to average them on a pixel basis obtaining a perfectly clean shot like as it was made with a full frame camera!

SP does merge several pics but don't align them, thus you must shot the sequence using a tripod

Here the link to download SP:

I don't know any app that can do this...

I also want image stacking or automated burst of RAW, but I'm forced to do this myself.

Here two examples of manual stacking of raw captures from Galaxy S9.

Never tried for this effect, but on current version 8.10.1 the HDR mode on Snap Camera HDR is very granular for settings, including number of shots 1 - 15 and Time Between Shots from 0 to 1400ms - so max would combine 15 shots over 21 seconds. A great app on an aging ZTE, but not stable on my current Moto. Purchase is required to get the much improved current version.

If you had a Pixel (or maybe GCAM), you could put the phone on a tripod, and hold an ND filter in front of the lens and use Night Mode to get a slow exposure (enabled by Night Mode).

I know Adobe Lightroom Mobile had a feature like this, but not sure if it for Iphone and Android versions.

I have heard of a number of good Iphone apps that did this but mostly inspired because at the time there was no possible way have actual long exposure on Iphones until recently. .

I used to use an App called ProShot that had it I believe had it and a few other obscure apps but they didn't do alignment like Gcam etc.

Try searching "light painting, or simulated long exposure
