9/10 Rating by Wired Magazine > UNIVERSAL APP WORKS ON ALL DEVICES!
FILM IS DEAD ... And yet many camera apps still insist upon attempting simulations of that long-past era. We say NO to artificial nostalgia, pushing forward in the digital realm with different forms of creative destruction.
With that in mind we present Decim8, a digital tool for photographic destruction. Armed with a set of bit-glitching filters, evolve your pictures into strange and sublime artifacts bordering on chaos. There are no effects to simulate your grandpa's snapshots. No virtual replicas of plastic instant-cams from your imaginary summer of '73. Just mad combinations of digital data-mashing. That's how we roll.
- 25! insane digital effects not found in any other app
- Save your favorite combinations as your own named effects
- User may randomize OR custom arrange-and-activate effects
- Camera features: tap-to-focus, focus locking, torch-mode flash, align grid, front/rear cam
- Decim8 images from your photo library
- Full-size output
- Send postcards to your friends with seamless Postagram integration
- Tweet out your creations with seamless Twitter integration
- Effects never exactly the same twice
- Effects previews give an idea of what each effect does.
** WARNING! THIS APP IS CAPABLE OF COMPLETELY DESTROYING AN IMAGE. (You can keep the original of course!) If this doesn't appeal to you, there are LOTS of apps out there to provide all the "safe" effects you could ever want. If you're looking for something more, something new and unpredictable.. capable of making art that's challenging yet beautiful, then we think you will enjoy DECIM8!
