Great, fun app…

ThirtyFiveThousand opinions

… Easy to use, great visual results. In my eyes, only two things keep it from being completely perfect: the results of using the "adding ink" feature are dark artifacts that break the border of the underlying watercolor piece. Sometimes it's a good thing, but the only way to make it good every time is to make it controllable. The other problem is that when I click the "write a review" button within the app it takes me to a blank screen within the App Store, which makes me have to take an extra step in order to come back and write the glowing review this app deserves!

Great to add to your collection.


I am usually not inclined to download an app that transforms your photo into some other look alike medium. But I really like percolator by the same developer. This app first, does a great job and second a great tool to add affects from other apps or layer it to get even more interesting effects. Adding light leaker affects is a perfect example and not achievable in actual watercolor. If you like playing with multiple apps this would be a great addition.

Keeps getting better!


Popsicolor is totally original. I haven't seen anything else even close to this in the App Store.

It helps if your image has a lot of contrast. After you use it for a while, you start to anticipate which images that will probably look good.

I highly recommend this app. It's very addictive and a lot of fun!
