Review: Insta Bokeh offers fun light effects to your photos

Add fun light effects to all of your photos with this intuitive app.

Insta Bokeh provides you with a variety of shapes that you can use to decorate your photos with just a tap of your finger. Choose from a selection of stars, flowers, geometric shapes, and more, and then just tap on your photo wherever you want to add one. The shapes show up in several different colors and sizes, and when you're done, there are built-in features available to share your images on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

This app has a very straightforward interface, with a demo screen that pops up whenever you open the app. You can add your own photos by tapping the photo button in the top left-hand corner. Then, just crop and center your photo, and choose which bokeh light effects you'd like to add. The effects show up in a variety of colors, and you can choose which colors to use with the color slider on the right-hand side of the screen. There are also controls to adjust the size of the light effects and their brightness; and once you're done touching up your photo, you can share it with the touch of a button.

Insta Bokeh runs smoothly, and while it doesn't offer many features, the ones it does provide work well. The free version includes seven different shapes for your bokeh effects, and you can unlock many more by purchasing the full-feature pack for $1.99. Overall, this is a fun app to play with, and certainly worth a try since you can get most of the features for free.
