Bringing the excitement of spontaneous photography to you.
MarbleCam takes pictures that look as if you had focused on a glass marble with a macro lens.
The beautiful harmony of the scene appearing upside down within the marble and the blurred background make it look like you took your photo with a real marble or a soratama lens.
To those who have never tried it, and to those who have played with marble photography before, why not give this nostalgic style of photography a try with the iPhone/iPod touch?
You can use photos taken with your camera, or select them from your photo library.
The editing of hi-res photos uses large amounts of memory.
Please close other running applications on background to ensure ample memory when using this application.
- Display and hide the menu by tapping the upper part of the screen.
- Photo trimming function to change the composition of the photo.
- Photo rotation function (If you save after rotating the picture, it will be saved with the rotation applied).
- Possible to choose between square and rectangular photo shapes.
- 25 types of marble size.
- Guidelines are displayed when using the camera.
- Sharing services: share on Instagram, twitter and Facebook.
What's New in Version 2.5
fix for iOS 7.
new app icon.
Cool app but...
I really like the idea of this app, but what I don't get is why either the background or marble has to be upside down. You cannot have both the background and marble right-side up. Check out the demo pictures and you'll see what I mean. I know it's advertised as a feature to have it upside down, but seems simple enough to give the user control and let the user choose to have both right-side up. If this basic functionality is fixed I'd easily give this app 5 stars.
I thought I would give this app a little time to fix the bug, but after many months it still persists. Only allows a picture from your gallery to be selected once, the second time the screen goes to black. The app needs to be shut down and restarted if you want to try another picture. Please fix the bug!
Super simple interface, not overrun with ads, does exactly what it claims and does it pretty well! I'm impressed! Good job devs, looking forward to your next app!
