FILM IS DEAD ... And yet many camera apps still insist upon attempting simulations of that long-past era. We say NO to artificial nostalgia, pushing forward in the digital realm with different forms of creative destruction.
With that in mind we present Decim8, a digital tool for photographic destruction. Armed with a set of bit-glitching filters, evolve your pictures into strange and sublime artifacts bordering on chaos. There are no effects to simulate your grandpa's snapshots. No virtual replicas of plastic instant-cams from your imaginary summer of '73. Just mad combinations of digital data-mashing. That's how we roll.
- 25! insane digital effects not found in any other app
- Save your favorite combinations as your own named effects
- User may randomize OR custom arrange-and-activate effects
- Camera features: tap-to-focus, focus locking, torch-mode flash, align grid, front/rear cam
- Decim8 images from your photo library
- Full-size output
- Send postcards to your friends with seamless Postagram integration
- Tweet out your creations with seamless Twitter integration
- Effects never exactly the same twice
- Effects previews give an idea of what each effect does.
** WARNING! THIS APP IS CAPABLE OF COMPLETELY DESTROYING AN IMAGE. (You can keep the original of course!) If this doesn't appeal to you, there are LOTS of apps out there to provide all the "safe" effects you could ever want. If you're looking for something more, something new and unpredictable.. capable of making art that's challenging yet beautiful, then we think you will enjoy DECIM8!

What's New in Version 3.5.6
Fixed iPad photo import bug
This is over the top addictive and just right up my alley. I have logged more hours totally mangling art already just raw shape and color getting variations that after awhile become downright spooky! I love this app. It makes me late for work though=less sleep!
A couple levels of UNDO would be awesome. Setting up simple animated GIFs using a cluster of stills would be SWEEET because once I get into variations on a glitched piece of art I see movement and - I DUNNO just spitballing here.
Oh also, as others have said MORE effects or ability to heavily edit/create own effects? Dope app thank you very much.
Needs more effects
Amazing app. One of a kind. I could experiment with this all day, and have at times. I only have a few requests for the next update, which will hopefully happen. Additional effects, shuffle should randomly shuffle more than two effects at a time, a 'go back to previous picture' or 'go back to previous effect settings' option/button, and...yeah, that pretty much covers it. To anyone who is looking for an app with enormously oddly improbably unique, this is the app for you. I'd buy it again for additional effects if necessary.
Great Effects, Needs some Features
Unique photo editing app which is hard to come by in the morass of identical photo apps. Some very cool effects and lots of control over combining effects, the order they're processed in, etc.
But the work flow needs improvement. Please, please please add an Undo button. If you add a filter and don't like it, you have to start over by accessing photos again and re loading the image.
Also the ability to "dial in" an effect less or more intensely would be stellar as opposed to the on / off workflow now.
Overall, great app but needs some improvement. Regardless, I'd recommend!
