"Cartoonize yourself!"

Reviewed by / Dec 13, 2011

Paper Camera adds different cartoon effects to your pictures

Paper camera allows you to catch the World with original lens. There are up to 12 different lens: comic book, cartoon, neon,... that give a new touch to your pictures. What's more, you can adjust contrast, brightness and lines, and edit it at your own. You can take photos from the app or load one photo from your gallery and apply the effects. You will get hooked by this app since the first time you launch it. It is set in a good-looking interface and it's really easy to use (maybe due to its lack of options).

And that's precisely its main catch: we're missing more lens and effects as well as extra editing features. What's more, it would be great to record video using these lens. JFDP Labs LTD, its developers say that they're working on it. The app had issues and incompatibilities with Huawei x5 and Samsung Moment. Despite of this flaws, the app is truly worth.

    Try to think of situations where I can really use this camera. I really do like the images this camera creates, it's better than use the image processing app to alter the photos.

    Paper Camera is a fun new twist on traditional camera apps. Loads of fun to use and well worth the money. An excellent value.
