Reflect On This: Instagram Plus Mirror Images Equals Mirrorgram

October 12, 2012
Imagine Instagram walking into a hall of mirrors. You can't? Well, you actually don't have to, now that the possible outcome of that hypothetical situation is already in the App Store. What happens if you combine Instagram with mirrors? Mirrorgram, most probably. Mirrorgram is a new photo sharing app that is pretty much a mirror image-obsessed version of Instagram. The app is the product of a rather unlikely collaboration between digital platform StageBloc and electronic music group The Glitch Mob's Justin Boreta. "I've been interested in photo manipulation for over ten years," said Boreta. "I found myself repurposing a lot of other apps to make mirrored images while touring with The Glitch Mob. Finally, I approached StageBloc to see if they could help me make the kind of intuitive app I was imagining into a reality." If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Mirrorgram allows you to create mirror images live while shooting a photo or right after taking or loading a photo. The app offers eight different modes of mirroring. This is made possible by forming symmetry with respect to a photo's horizontal, vertical, and diagonal axes. Panning and zooming are also supported for the mirrored image, which re-adjusts accordingly with every alteration. Past the mirroring process, Mirrorgram doesn't offer much of a difference from its more popular, non-mirroring counterpart. Mirrorgram also supports a number of filters and sharing options, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, of course. Designed for iPhone and already optimized for iPhone 5, Mirrorgram is available now in the App Store for $0.99. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
