Photo App Focus: Popsicolor is in the App Store now
Popsicolor, the highly anticipated new Pop-Art photo app from the creator of Percolator, is now available in the App Store. Popsicolor turns your photos into vivid, high contrast “watercolors.”

Popsicolor is super easy to use. You can load images from your camera roll or shoot new ones in app. Then start to play. There are two rows of color palettes so you can easily select a top and a bottom color. The app creates a gradient blend between the two.
Unlike other other pop-art watercolor apps, Popsicolor adds a lot of texture to the image as well. It adds subtle shading and patchiness to the colors, ink on paper texture, ink bleed and even random drips. In addition to the vivid color palette, the effect is very cool, detailed, and nicely textured. There’s nothing quite like it in the App Store.
There are relatively few settings. You can change Popsicolor’s focus, which effects the intensity and color coverage of the effects. Natural and Minimal create the most white space, depending on your source image. Bold adds a lot of fill color.
I found that high-contrast images worked best for me, although don’t be afraid to experiment — the app will surprise you.
Popsicolor saves images in four sizes, including source image resolution — that’s 8MP on an iPhone 4S. Larger images result in longer processing and upload times, although the added processing time on an iPhone 4S was seconds — not long at all.
Popsicolor is another great app from Tinrocket. I like both its great, colorful effects, its ease of use, and the fact that it lets you create new images that can be shared online or enlarged to gallery size. At only a dollar, Popsicolor is a great app add a unique Pop-Art style to your photos.
Popsicolor is $0.99. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad.Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
