CamWow is a camera replacement with lots of cute photo effects
CamWow RETRO version comes with 16 more vintage effects.
Every second thousands of pics are uploaded to the Internet. Within all that mess only a few point out of creativity and originality. Camera apps like CamWow provide lots of filters to help you enhance your pics and make them highlight.
As a camera replacement, it launches the camera when tapping on it. Actually, CamWow's interface looks like the stock camera app with a minimal bottom bar from where you can preview the last picture taken and access the gallery, take a picture, select a filter, switch between front/back camera and set up preferences.
CamWow is focused on simplicity and ease-of-use and its plus point lies on its original effects. From the FX button you can preview the effects just by pointing your camera and select the one you like more. Effects are displayed on 4-effects grid that can be swiped to see the next pack, in real-time, applied directly to your camera. There are up to 16 different old-fashioned photo effects.
Just two catches: simplicity is great but I'm missing some edition tools like crop, brightness and contrast adjustment, etc. Likewise, every effect applied with CamWow leaves a watermark. If you want to remove them you have to pay $1.99. I would personally prefer a more freemium-like system: no watermarks even in the free version and more effects/filters in a paid version. However, that's just my opinion. The app is highly recommended.
Download this app and see how CamWow throws back to old-school photography with the best real-time vintage filters on the app store!
