Prism and Vintango

I probably need another app like I need...well, you get my drift. I can't help it, when I see one that looks like it might do something just a bit differently than the other 400 apps I have (Yes, I'm serious), then I'm off to The App Store. If they ever need a poster child for app addicts, I would be in the running!

Two apps I recently discovered are Vintango and Prism.

Vintango, currently FREE on The App Store (normally priced at $2.99) offers a variety of vintage effects. It's an easy to use interface. What I like best about Vintango is the ability to preview your photo with all of the presets at a glance. Here are just a few from the Basic Presets. There are also 20 Classic Styles, 20 Black and White and 20 Lomo Styles.

You can also crop or rotate your image and add text using one of 29 font styles. From Vintango you can save your image or share to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.


The second app that looks interesting is the just released Prism (available on The App Store for $2.99) Prism has a different approach to filtering your image. Just watch the video below to check out the unique wheel navigation.

Prism has 14 color-based filter groups
128 professional filters
Supports high resolution images


Here are just three different edits I got in just a few seconds with Prism.

I'm not sure if either Vintango or Prism offer anything completely unique as far as photo results, but if you don't have a good filter app that you already like either of these would be worth adding to your app arsenal.

  1. I got vintango yesterday and I agree, the live view of the effects is interesting. I'm liking it so far. Not as a go to app but a good finalizing touch.
    Prism looks interesting but I think I'll wait a while before getting it.

  2. Yes I had to grab Vintango because it was free. I do like to "play" with Prism, but I wouldn't call it a necessity for all iPhone photographers.

  3. Geri - do you know if in Prism you have the option to save a custom filter or the SAME filter again or it's a rolling-roulette guess? :)

  4. Hi Andrea - as far as I can see it's a roulette wheel! I can't find anyway to duplicate a particular filter.
