Import from your Photo Library or Camera. You can import images from your Photo Library to apply the filters to, or take a special picture with your iPhone Camera app.
Several filters to use and then share. There are several different varieties of oil and watercolor filters you can use, and then share your creation to your Photo Library, Instagram, Facebook, or WhatsApp.
More than 30 filters after in-app purchase. Watercolor Effect offers more than 30 filters, plus removal of the watermark, after in-app purchase.
What is it about?
The app is definitely easy to use. Launch it, give it access to your camera and photo library, and away you go. Watercolor Effect also asks permission to send you notifications, presumably to let you know when new filters are available.
Why we love it
Watercolor Effect advertises that you get 15 different filters to use free of charge, but I found that not to be the case. In my browsing, I found nine filters that either required an in-app purchase to access or leaving a five-star review of the app. So let me rant about that for a moment. The app's description says "15+ watercolor filters to choose from." In reality, the free download provides you with six different filters you can use without any additional payment, either in the form of money or a review. If you leave the app a five-star review, it unlocks five more filters for you to use. That brings the total up to 11 free filters to use, with a watermark applied to them. Two different in-app purchases all you to either unlock all the filters, bringing the total options to more than 30, or unlock all of the features of the app. The second, more expensive, option gives you more than 30 filters and removes the watermark. I have no problem with an app being monetized, but be honest about it. If the app description says you get 15+ filters for free, it should provide those without any additional payment or effort. Will I keep Watercolor Effect on my iPhone? Most likely, and I'll probably even spring for the in-app purchase to unlock all of the filters and remove the watermark. It just leaves a slightly bad taste in my mouth when I read an app description, download the app, and find out the developers aren't true to their word.
