popsicolor-icnUPDATE: The Popsicolor 2.0 update has hit the App Store and is available now!

Popsicolor is the very cool Pop-Art photo app from the creator of Percolator. It turns your photos into vivid, high contrast “watercolors.” Popsicolor is about to get a pretty big update with a slick new interface and a bunch of cool new features.

Keep reading for a sneak peek video of the new update.

You can read my review of the original Popsicolor release here.


The new 2.0 update should hit the App Store within a couple of weeks. Among its new features are some powerful new tools and effects.

The gradient tool gets a big update. The new gradients tool will give you much greater control over how the color blend together. In addition to a basic gradient there are also plenty of other options, including radial, vortex, ripples and more.

In addition, there are greater color controls, including a really cool duotone feature and the ability to easily swap colors in the gradients.

The focus tool looks to be more tweakable, giving you greater control over how the image will process. Another cool new feature is the ability to add black edging within the image, adding definition to the image.

Check out the video above for a look at all the cool features. Although the video above was created on an iPad simulator, the new tools and features will also work on an iPhone. This looks to be an exciting update to this fun and unique photo app.

Popsicolor 2.0 will be a free upgrade in the App Store. Version 1.0.1 is available for $0.99 in the App Store. It’s a fun app and well worth it. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
