It’s a truth universally acknowledged that after Instagram rose to extreme popularity, many other camera and photo-editing apps popped into the App Store. Many of these apps are redundant, with their focus just on filters. But Wrap Camera HD, on the other hand, separates itself from all of these other apps.
Concept and Functionality:
Instead of just cropping or making photos monochrome, Wrap Camera HD can do all sorts of cool 3-D-esque effects to enhance your snapshots, like turning them into a collage of post-it notes or morph them into stars.
The app itself is not complicated at all. You have your navigation at the top with main functions like “help” and “cancel,” other helpful buttons like “compare,” which shows you your photos before and after the effects, as well as the bottom navigation, where you control which effects you select.
The bottom navigation is, interestingly enough, the most fun part of this app. There you can change the shape of a photo, get your photo sketched out, add cool pop-art or psychedelic filters, choose from a wide variety of frames and much more.
The most unique part about Wrap Camera HD is the versatility the app has in twisting and stretching your photos. Instead of sticking to the usual 2-D filters, the app can fold, turn and drag your photos like actual paper or cloth.
The options in Wrap Camera HD seem pretty endless, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to how you want to customize your photo.
In addition to the countless effects you can choose to add to your photos, when you go to save your masterpiece, you can choose to send them via email, Facebook, DropBox or even using WeChat. There are also shortcuts in the app for more secretarial tasks such as rating the app, searching for support or even contacting the developers directly in case you find a glitch.
For most, if not all effects, you can also adjust just how much of it you want. How about just a tinge of that “moony” filter? Or go a bit easy on the snowfall effect? The choice is yours.
Wrap Camera HD is a multi-functional, multi-dimensional app for photos. If you’re tired of the usual cropping and filters, this app is certainly a change. You can bring your photos to life with 3-D effects that can make your photos look like scrolls or film from a movie reel.
It’s really incredible, how many different options Wrap Camera HD gives you to customize your photos.
However, because there are so many options, sometimes it’s hard to navigate the app flawlessly.Your finger might slip, and you you’re accidentally on a different customization feature instead of the one you were previously working with. The various UI elements used to control certain aspects of the app sometimes don’t work properly.
Regardless, if variety is the spice of your life, Wrap Camera HD is sure to be a treat. With so many different effects to choose from, no two photos will ever look the same!
