iPhone Screenshots


What if pixels weren't necessarily supposed to look like little squares and sit in the so-called "right order"? What if what we call "real", "true", "figurative" images were not the only way our World can be represented? What if photographic data was just... data? What if it could be reinterpreted?

Select a preset and/or set your own parameters, give the app a photo to process and post your art on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to let the World know!

A+ BUT doesnt save as hi-res WUT??


It continues to blow my mind that some devs *still* neglect to see (the what should be obvious) dire need for a high resolution final export.

It's the first functionality I check for when testing photo & video editing applications. Because, if the final image isn't hi-res, I have ZERO use for the app or service. Which then of course is immediately removed from my device.

It's an easy integration & tbh, you could even charge a one time fee for it and people would pay. I know I would.

C'mon, git it.

Love it


This app is pretty awesome. If you like creating glitch art type stuff then get this app, it's a lot of fun to mess around with. Great job.

It's Simple, Random Fun


Yes, it's another glitch app, but the results are unique from the others, and I like the simple-yet-adjustable nature of the effects. It does take quite a while to process if you adjust certain sliders in certain ways (6 plus). This is what I consider a novelty app - one of those just-for-fun apps I can go to when I'm sick of editing photos and just want the app to do all the work and to make cool stuff with my photos for me. It's worth a buck or two.
