I absolutely love this app... I’m a textiles student i use it to make patterns from my work and it’s amazing!!!! The patterns it makes are really beautiful and the app works really great on my iPhone. So I bought the locked ones too!

Great app

I would pay for an animated movement & record option as well as video option.

Pretty Good!

Brightness/colour of image depends on that of subject! High contrast situations may wash out colour a little but only as they would in a regular photo.

Only downsides: sluggish response (processor heavy?), artefacts in 2 corners of all settings except 4 & 8, can'y process images from camera roll and self portraits tricky (though scarily bizarre) as it only uses main camera. Fix these and I'd give it a 5!

Otherwise it's a great app - fun to experiment with and it can produce some wonderful images that take it beyond the mere novelty category.
