Features and Tools
When it comes to augmentation effects, most people think of Snapchat. This is probably because it was among the first apps to introduce augmentation effects. However, what most people do not realize is that there are better apps than Snapchat. My personal favorite is the Lumyer app. Find out why this is a leading App Store and Google Play app for video and photo effects below.
The interface of this app has a lot going on. There are a lot of UI elements below and above the preview section, which makes it quite disorganized. However, I must say that the incorporation of clear labels redeems the situations since it is apparent which function does what. In my opinion, if the developers took some time to organize the app better, it would definitely elevate it. The score is 4 out of 5.
Features and Tools
Lumyer has a plethora of video and photo effects that you can use to make fabulous masterpieces. First and foremost, you can use the app to create live Lumyer videos
with different effects. Apart from this, you can import photos from your gallery and add various filters to them. In addition, the app features tap effects that populate the area you have touched. This iPhone and Android app is excellent for creating augmented video and photo effects for sharing on social media or simply testing your creativity and having a bit of fun with your pictures. My mark is 5.
This Google Android and iDevice tool has fantastic performance. It responds fast, and all the different effects work without a hitch. However, I don’t like the fact that it’s only possible to take square images since there aren’t any other ratios available. However, for a free-to-use app, it is quite impressive. The creators of the app try to make it even better by updating it frequently. One of the changes they have introduced in the latest version is the ability to create your own logos. 4/5.
If you have something to say about this app and make own review – write me.
Lumyer is one of the few apps for all Android devices that are also available on nearly all iDevices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch). This cross-platform compatibility has made it an all-time favorite for most mobile device users. 5/5.
- Photo sharing is effortless;
- The app has a lot of free video and photo effects;
- The live preview works great.
- Both the Android mobile and the iOS app could use a bit more organization;
- It’s impossible to edit photos already edited using Lumyer;
- You have to upgrade to premium to remove the watermarks in the pictures.
There is no doubt that Lumyer is one of the best augmentation effects apps. This app has fantastic features, and most importantly, you can take advantage of all the effects offline. This is something you will not get in many apps. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys augmentation effects and social media.
