Apple hand picks one choice app to go free as the official App of the Week. This time around the photo effects app Fragment is getting the nod. Regularly listed at $1.99, this is the first time we have seen the app go free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Head below for some in-app footage and more details:
Created by Pixite, the makers of the popular Tangent (App Store Best of 2013) and the Lory Stripes app, Fragment allows users to create “one-of-a-kind” prismatic art using any photo. As you can see in the images above and below, the app has a number of preset shapes or geometrical designs/patterns that can be layered to “fragment” images “into a myriad of prism-like glass pieces.” There is a fairly wide selection of starter shapes and styles (more added regularly) that can then be customized even further:
Outside of the preset options, there is also a suite of tweak-able, realtime effects including the basics like rotate, resize, frame, drag, zoom and crop, but you’ll also find color and level adjustments including Desaturate, Blend, Blur, and Invert. Once the masterpiece is done, there is all the usual sharing functions built in to the app.
More from Pixite:
With Fragment, you now have the power to transform any image into totally unique, one-of-a-kind prismatic art you’ll want to share with everyone. Whether you’re looking to completely redefine and enhance your level of iPhoneography, or simply want to add a subtle dose of creativity to your pictures, Fragment puts the artistry in your hands.
It all begins with your images. Take your camera and compose a photo, or select from your Camera Roll. Once you have your image, the enhancing is in full effect. Unleash your inner artist and choose from a collage of inspired frames, shapes and patterns.
