PicsPlay – Photo Editor
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
JellyBus Inc.’s app PicsPlay is promised to be the perfect on-the-go photo editing option for iOS users. Currently available for free through the iTunes Store, PicsPlay definitely appears to be an excellent app for iOS photography enthusiasts.
PicsPlay is an app designed to bring the features of large scale photo editing software to the convenience of iOS devices. As such, the features of PicsPlay include most of the editing options that you would see in any of these larger editing programs—from histograms to colored curves, exposure altering to color adjustments, tilt shifts to blur effects.
“Professional” pre-made filters can also be applied to photographs to allow for quick and easy editing, and the opacity of these filters can be adjusted for further editing flexibility. Finished photographs can then be saved on your iOS device or exported to social media services like Facebook and Instagram.
In addition to using PicsPlay to edit photographs already on your iOS device, this app can also be used to take photographs as well. The “super camera” features of PicsPlay are designed to improve the photography experience of users; these features include a self timer, anti-shake option, and flash control, among other features.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout of PicsPlay should please anyone familiar with photography editing. Loading a photograph to the app is fairly intuitive to do, as is locating the various photo editing options (conventional icons for each of these options are used in order to minimize any possible confusion).
First time users are also offered the option of watching a short introductory “how-to” video to get them familiar with the features of the app, but PicsPlay is really so simple to use that many new users should be able to bypass this video and still enjoy the app with ease.
Additionally, the graphics of PicsPlay do well to lend to the overall appeal of the app without causing it to feel too cluttered.
PicsPlay is a free app, and it definitely is worth the space it takes up on your iOS device.
While in-app “upgrade” to an add-free account with more special features can be purchased, the average PicsPlay user probably won’t find a need to upgrade his account because of the wide range of features already offered in the free version.
Overall, PicsPlay is exactly what it is promised to be—an excellent all-in-one photo editing app.
PicsPlay iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
