Photo Candy is a prime example of how to build a proprietary free photo app for the iPhone that looks good, runs fast, and allows you to create great-looking photos. This app consists of numerous unique filters and background editing tools that will result in some very good-looking photographs. While there are some tools here that could use additional options, in general, Photo Candy is one of the better and more unique free camera apps on the App Store today.
What sets Photo Candy apart from so many other apps on the App Store is that it doesn't strive to copy other apps. It is unique, has its own sense of style, and offers filters and tools that fit that style. Each filter adds an overlay of shapes and colors to the screen. You can then change the shape, size, opacity, and zoom of these shapes to affect your image in dozens of ways. Other options like size selection, a built-in tutorial, and Instagram-ready dimensions for your images make the app very flexible.
While Photo Candy is not the ideal solution for in-depth editing of technical features in your photos, it does offer a huge range of filters, effects, and more to customize your photos. The interface is professional and smooth, and sharing is super easy. This is a great free app, and without an ad in sight, it is a joy to use.
