Gorgeous watercolor filters that really make your photos pop-out from the crowd.

It's time to get messy

What is it about?

Popsicolor is another watercolor app from Tinrocket, but this one gives a hip and cool watercolor look. Just throw in an image and then choose your popsicle color palette. Then pick a gradient and blending option that you like, and watch the app get to work. The results are completely unique and unlike anything else you've ever seen on the App Store. These are unique and stylish illustrations that are bold, vivid, and eye-catching. All images are saved in high resolution as well, so you don't skimp out on the detail here. This is perfect for those who want something hip, and to add a splash of color to their avatar for the summer.

For those who...

  • Want artistic style to their images
  • Want to stand out from the crowd

Not for those who...

  • Don't like bold things
  • Prefer standard watercolors

Why we love it

It is super simple to use and the results are completely unique. This is definitely not your standard watercolor photo app.
