AnalogColor is the iPhone version to Pentacom’s popular desktop app for Mac and Windows, ToyCamera AnalogColor. It creates analog-like photos and simulates cross-processing. It’s got a clean and straightforward interface. There are four easy to use one-click presets, a random effect button, and a toolset to make custom or fine-tuned adjustments. The effects include expired film, cross process, simulated film grain, and light leaks.
AnalogColor for iPhone is on sale now for only $0.99 for a limited time. Save a buck on this app until August 1st.

I’ve reviewed previous versions of the app here. AnalogColor is the type of photo app that I look for — a lo-fi style app with good quality analog effects and subtle noise to simulate film grain. It does a good job of digitally recreating the look of analog film. The Random button is my favorite tool in the app. Although the presets may seem limited, the Random button generates fairly random effects, including one of several light leaks and other aberrations.
AnalogColor 1.1 supports the original resolution of your device — up to 8 MP on an iPhone 4S.
It’s been a while since it was last updated — about six months. The iPhone app is still not on par with its desktop counterpart, ToyCamera AnalogColor. It’s still missing a lot of the frames, “lenses” and the complete set of slider adjustments found in the desktop version of the app. Hopefully, there’s an update in the works.
There’s little you can do to reinvent how retro analog film looks. AnalogColor is still a good app to give your photos the dreamlike look of an image that was shot on film with an old camera.
AnalogColor is normally $1.99 (on sale through the end of July for $0.99). Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.1 or later.
