Review: Beauty Camera adds filters to your photos

Add beauty to your smartphone's photos with filters available in Beauty Camera.

Beauty Camera slims down a lot of the more robust photo editor offerings into a few neat features. The only problem is that some of the features in Beauty Camera don't work like you'd expect them to. The app provides cool results when they do, though.

Like many photo editing apps, this one lets you pull photos from your hard drive or snap from within the app. You can preview filters that way, but the app's camera lacks top-tier quality. The filters, themselves, are useful, but there are only six for you to choose from. Other apps tend to offer upwards of 20. Though filters seem like the main draw, the ability to retouch your photos is a real winner in Beauty Camera. You can change a photo's contrast, lightness, and tone with the help of a few basic sliders, after you take it. Tapping the crop button usually causes the entire app to crash.

If you can't get enough of filtering apps, this one is certainly worth trying because of the results. You may have to deal with random crashes and hiccups, which can be quite frustrating, but it's hard to argue with the outcome.
