PowerSketch: Written iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Neat filter apps for the iPhone camera are all the rage amongst iOS users. It can be hard to sort out all the good ones from the sub-par offerings. Fortunately, PowerSketch, from Wondershare Software is one of the better such photo editing apps.  Is it right for you and your pic-happy friends? Find out below!


Boot up PowerSketch, read the quick intro and get started snapping pictures and editing them with ease. The filters included in this app are designed to turn photos into creative sketch masterpieces. There’s wash, rice paper, picture in picture, comic and many more. Once you are done touching up a photo into a drawing image, you can share it via email, YouTube, Tiwtter, Flickr, Tumblr and Facebook. There’s even a short ‘note’ tool to add info on the edited image before sharing it. While users of older iOS models without a camera will probably ignore this app, it’s worth noting that PowerSketch also works on already existing photos and other images on your device. It is limited to smaller images (larger files, such as high megapixel images from nice cameras can’t be edited unfortunately on this app). Hopefully, future versions will support larger image editing.

PowerSketch iPhone App Reviews

PowerSketch uses one of my favorite tutorial styles to introduce new users to the app. Upon first startup, a few quick “hints” in text are layered across the main screen. These show the user the basic functions of the app, allowing first time users to figure out the basic buttons and options. Tapping the screen once quickly removes these. Need them again? Just look under the info button for these hints. The icons, buttons and overall layout appear quite professional and slick. And, perhaps most importantly, the filter effects in PowerSketch are simply superb! There’s 10+ distinctive filters to use, turning your photos into artistic drawings and sketches with ease.


It can be tough to choose the best photo editing and pic effects app for your iOS device. I’d encourage you to try out a variety of these apps and keep your favorite ones with you at all times. PowerSketch is simply one of the best sketch effects apps for the iOS. The $0.99 price tag is a real bargain when you consider the high-quality filters offered in PowerSketch. It’s definitely one app all photo fans should check out today!
