Popsicolor app turns photos into watercolors

The $.99 app does what it says & does it nicely, if rather slowly. Check out some example images.

Aside: I continue to wish Apple would make it easy for apps like Instagram to slot in other apps for round-trip filtering (sending them a grid of pixels & then getting one back). It seems that Windows & Android remain well ahead in this regard, but hope springs eternal.

    Painter is really good at watercolor. Why would I want a mediocre app?

      Your comparison is not fair. Popsicolor does not target the same market Painter targets: it was designed to be a 99¢ app that provides eye-popping results and is simple and fun to use.

    Thanks, John. Popsicolor was designed & developed in less than a week; I intend to spend some time profiling the app and seeing what performance can be gained.
