In general, you need to set long exposure, likely several seconds, and set your aperture and ISO appropriately to achieve correct exposure. For long exposures you need to make sure that your camera is absolutely steady. Tripod is usually used for this purpose.

You would need an app that can control the ISO, exposure time and aperture.
