Photo App Focus: Kyoobik Photo. Grab it while it’s FREE for a day!
Here’s a very cool app you probably wouldn’t think to download based on the name, but Kyoobik Photo is made by JixiPix who put out quality apps. I was very pleasantly surprised with how good this app is. It’s another Modernist photo app with dozens of adjustable unique cubist, pop-art and mosaic effects.
The app is FREE for one day — a savings of $1.99. This discount is for a very limited time. It’ll probably be free until about 6:00 PM ET today, so grab it now. There’s an App Store link after the jump. >>>
Keep to see what I think of the app. >>>
I have to admit I’d have overlooked this app because of the name until I noticed it was created by JixiPix, the developers of other great photo apps Vintage Scene, Grungetastic, Dramatic Black & White and several other quality photo apps. One of the advantages of being a developer with an excellent reputation.
With a touch, Kyoobik Photo turns your photos into geometric, gridded or mosaic or pop-art works. The effects are divided into four categories, with several different styles in each category. Styles range from basic grids to complex color-shifted, three-dimensional, planed mosaics. The effects range from the subtley cool to extreme. There’s also a random button — a roll of the dice — you can use to explore the app.
Nearly all aspects of the effects are fully customizable. In the app’s Adjustment menu, you can tweak the shape size and gutter, adjust the variation of the effects, change the paper style of the background and many other adjustments.
The app is easy to figure out without any help. It’s easy to use and was very stable in my tests. Pretty good, considering that the app supports full 8 MP resolution of the iPhone 4S. Considering the effects this app is creating, that’s a lot of work to be asking of your iDevice’s CPU. Saves rendered a little slow. Just expect it. Kyoobik is crunching a lot of pixels.
Like other JixiPix apps, the effects look great with little or not tweaking. Most add very Modernist or pop-art styles to your image. Even at full resolution, effects render beautifully! There are more and more Modernist photo apps in the App Store — something I like to see. Kyoobik brings many new unique effects to this category of photo app.
