Pixlr-o-matic

I will probably never remember the name of this app (luckily I can copy paste it here :), but it's the type of app that you see once and it leaves its impression you (at least for me it did).

Pixlr-o-matic is a "darkroom app" that not only looks great, but also creates beautiful results. It's designed to be very easy to use so that anybody can choose a picture and create stunning professional looking results out of it. It makes you look like an expert photographer and Photoshop master, all within a few clicks.

Making your photos look great takes 3 steps in Pixlr-o-matic:
  • Add effects to adjust the mood. These are a wide range of filters that you apply to your image
  • Add overlays to your creation. These are the kind of subtle things that can be added to a photo to really make it look professional. They range from grungy textures, to neon lights, and various textures and artifacts that give your shot character
  • Borders - the app comes with a wide range of borders to give your photo that final finishing touch

Obviously you can share your completed photos on different social networks, save them to your Photo Library, or email them.

Pixlr-o-matic works on both the iPhone and the iPad (the iPad version is really beautiful) and is free.

There is also an online version of Pixlr-o-matic that you can use on your desktop browser, plus they have a downloadable version, a Facebook version, a Chrome web app, and an Android version.
