The official LEGO iPhone app isn't exactly what you would expect from a company known for allowing our imaginations run wild, but it is quite entertaining in a simple way, and it's available for free. So really, how can you go wrong? LEGO Photo allows you to turn any photo from your camera roll, or one that you have just taken, into a beautiful brick mosaic. When you first launch the app you will notice a simple and clean interface that allows you to take a new picture or just grab one from your camera roll. The app will then turn your photo into a colorful brick mosaic with a single tap of the screen. If aren't fond of the current color scheme, just tap the screen again and a wave of new bricks will replace the old ones in real-time. Once you are satisfied with your image, just tap the info button in the upper right-hand corner to save your image. LEGO Photo is now available in the App Store for free. It is supports both the iPhone and iPod touch, but if you are using an iPod touch you will only be able to import images currently saved on your device.
