Review: Create color-highlighted photos with the tap of a finger using Color Splash Life for iOS

Create color highlighted photos with the tap of a finger.

Color Splash Life Free is a very easy-to-use app that can create very attractive photos from your photo library or camera. The app is well executed and easy to use, making for a quick and easy filter that will transform photos in your library with a few quick taps.

If you've ever seen a black-and-white photo with a small sliver of color added to it, you know exactly what Color Splash Life is designed to do. When you open the app, you'll be given a stock black-and-white photo. Choose a brush size and you can move your finger across the screen to uncover and reveal the color beneath the black and white. Of course, you can import your personal photos (converted to black and white) to do the same or take a new photo and highlight certain parts of it. The beauty is in the simplicity. This app is very easy to use with minimal menus, no distracting ads or filters that you'll never use, and the ability to pinch and zoom with ease.

If you are interested in the idea of customizing your photos by adding splashes of color to black and white, or just want a way to make your photos somehow new and exciting, then this is the perfect app for you. It allows you to do quite a bit in a basic, free package; and while there is a paid upgrade, all the functionality you'll need is right here.
