Retrospecs - a retro computing / pixel art camera app

By John Parker

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Retrospecs lets you convert/capture images so that they appear as they would on a variety of home computers and consoles from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Simply take a picture (or select one from your photo library) and you can display it as it would appear on a wide variety of computers and consoles from the 80's and 90's. There's currently over forty emulated systems including the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, IBM PC (DOS, CGA, EGA and VGA), Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Mega Drive and even the original 1984 model Apple Macintosh. If that's not enough you can also create your own custom systems based around different graphics engines, capabilities and colour palettes.

To best present your blocky masterpieces, you can tweak each image using a selection of dither patterns and image enhancements. Once you're done, share your images with friends and foes alike. Or just keep them to yourself.

What's New in Version 1.14

It's a whole new world! (Of minor bug fixes with a sprinkle of new bits to keep people happy.)

Bug fixins...
• Fixed converter screen so it should now remember which system/mode you last used.
• Fixed iPad Pro home screen display (Bathe in the luxury of three columns.)

New bits...
• Tweaked Game Boy palette and added new "Daylight" and "Pocket" variations.
• Added CMYK palette option for custom emulations.
• Added "Horizontal", "Vertical" and "Diagonal" dither options.

As always, if you enjoy the app please share your creations online and add a review in the App Store - I'll be forever grateful. (Unless of course it's not a nice review, in which case I'll be eternally sad.)
