Crystal Eye is the first app from Fake Love Labs. It uses advanced computer-vision technology to interactively enhance your photos in real time. Data from the camera is fed into several different algorithms that draw shapes and lines all over your image to make every image look like a unique work of art.
This is not a standard photo app that just overlays a static filter over a picture, but it actually interacts with the image content (something that 99% of camera apps don't even attempt).
Camera Button: Take a picture of what you see on your screen
WILD! Button: Take an enhanced picture that builds up a painterly effect over time. Watch the image slowly get crystallized!
SET Button: Tweak options to get hundreds of combinations for really unique looks. Try changing 'exposure' with the WILD! button to get even denser image coverage.
Double Tap to select a complete randomly generated setting!
Swipe to select between 5 different modes!

Ratings and Reviews
This is a zany app. It would've over the top if you could load photos from the camera roll. Maybe in a future update. Hint hint. Great stuff, nice work.
Doesn't work with iOS 8
If this would work with iOS 8 of give it five stars. Until that time I unfortunately will have to give only 3. Please, please update this once amazing app.
Fun abstract photos!
I love the different options but the Dino is my favorite. Works well with lots of colors.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
