Artech review: The app is simple, fast, lets you apply filters and effects to photos

The app is built it to run on the device itself.

There are literally thousands of apps that can apply filters or effects to your photos.

Many of them are paid or have some sort of in-app purchases. Some of them will forcibly add watermarks or give you limited choices unless you pay.

But by far the most annoying thing they do is automatically resize your high-resolution photo into a tiny, unprintable, highly compressed JPEG.

This free app does none of these things. The app is built it to run on the device itself - so it’s fast, because nothing is uploaded or processed in the cloud.

It works great on iPhone X (no black bars). There’s no resizing of the original photo, which means that if you like the result, you can even print it out in a large size. And finally, it’s dead simple.

You get six choices of art style to apply and a save button – that’s it! The developer Tao Wu has a handful of other apps in the App Store — try the cute Pixel Weather app, which costs just Rs 9.
