"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.

    I received this app free when Amazon apps was offering a free download a day. I just paid for the app to get rid of the Amazon login requirements. The app is worth every nickel.

    Cool little app that adds interesting effects to your photos and eliminates the need to do any post-processing.
