I love it! I usually like to stick to the free mobile apps but I saw such great results, I had to try it for myself.

Love the effect that it gave me. I can change it to the many options they provide. You get to select the effect you want.

Now I want to go out and take pictures just so I can play with Waterlogue. Facial details are hard for the app to achieve. But so far everything is a hit.

TiltShift Generator - Fake Miniature
By Art & Mobile
4 STARS out of 5

The idea of the TiltShift was recommended to me by an employee of Apple. I tried several apps and this one is the easiest.

There are many free mobile apps to Tilt Shift a photo. This TiltShift Generator seems to be the most effective for me. Take a picture highlight the area to be in focus and the rest of the effect is done for you. Your picture will look as if it is a miniature. There are more options when you pay for the full version. Even the iPad has a version. That allows you to control color saturation, brightness and contract. You will be able to save and post your professional-looking shots and receive many compliments.

Retro Camera Plus

2.5 STARS out of 5

With Retro Camera you will be able to take old-school pics your friends will love. Download and use on the iPad just tap the 2X button for a full view on the screen. Free mobile apps for Android users. iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, the Retro Camera is all compatible.

Retro Camera comes with 5 different cameras:

The Bärbl - An East German classic, naturally faded with a scratched film and medium vignetting, the perfect all-round choice.

The Little Orange Box - The Soviet Staple with aggressive cross processing and scratched square film. It's crappy plastic lens leaks in light and exhibits strong vignetting. Black and white option for even more emotion.

Xolaroid 2000 - Its inspiration is obvious! We love the candid snapshots this camera produces - you simply can't fail, every shot is a keeper. Blue / Green cross processing effects and timeless contrast. Black and white option for that classic touch.

The Pinhole Camera - A DIY gem and more unpredictable than Schrödinger's cat. Full bleed developing and vignetting through the roof, be sure to give this cardboard chimera a go.

The FudgeCan - The perfect rig for outdoors; developed on square film that wasn't quite stored... or developed right. But therein lies the charm that'll make your pics with this beauty, memorable and instantly nostalgic.

The Hipsteroku – A Japanese version of the Hipstamatic plastic camera. A square picture with white frame for an old photo look.

DMD DerManDar Panorama
By Dermandar
5 STARS out of 5

Get great panoramic shots. My first thought was, “this is a video, I’m taking a video”, but NO, it turned into a real picture you can send by email or post to Facebook and Twitter. It was amazing. There are many free mobile apps for photo taking but I haven’t found anything else like it. Well worth the money! It’s a keeper.

So easy – Here’s how to use it:
- Hold the device in portrait mode and avoid tilting it (straight vertical !)
- Tap the START button
- Rotate the device to the left or right
- When the two shapes on top form a circle, an image will be taken automatically
- Keep rotating the device in the chosen direction
- Tap the FINISH button or put the device in landscape orientation to stitch and view the panorama
- If you want to keep the panorama, tap the keep button on the viewer page
- Tap the Gallery button anytime to cancel shooting

Coming features :
- Quality enhancement
- Higher resolution

I like this free mobile app. It is really easy to figure out. You can predetermine the effect the camera will show you or you can choose to add effects after you have captured you’re ideal shots.

Enhancement: choose these effects, it will make your photo’s color level richer not only indoors but out, no matter the time of day.

LOMO effects: make your photo more brilliant with your own individual personality.

Black and White: The simplest effect. The quickest way to see the contrast of your photo.

Light color: Softens the look of any subject.

Scenery (HDR): super HDR, make your scenery photo full of visual impact.

Retro effect: bring back the feeling of your great grandparents era.

Sketch: take you into the cartoon world, and reach the perfect integration between reality and art.
