Customer Reviews


I had to write a review to combat the negative ones. Out of hundreds, maybe thousands of mediocre camera apps that do all the same sh! to all the mediocre people that want instant satisfaction and artistic results with zero effort...and finally one comes out with a refreshingly unique approach. I dont look for all-in-one photo apps because I always find that they fall short trying to do too much. I look at them as tools that each have a function to assist an artistic vision. And although this app doesnt have an incredible amount of variable manipulation, what it does do is very cool. For the artists out there that like to experiment and explore unique and random landscapes this app is for you. Thats my two and a half cents.

Simple and effective

I have had this app for awhile now, and I still love it. Unique in the App Store, because of it's simplicity, I have had some wonderful results. It is especially useful if you want to make sure the tone of a whole series is the same. Never had an issue with it, always has worked as intended.

A fav app to add unexpected color

I love this app. Spin the dial and you will find such unexpected, yet beautiful color combinations. Color Thief can take a prosaic image and bring it to the wild side. I have used hundreds of filter apps. This has been one of my keepers and is part of my essential tool kit
