"My favorite iPhone app for this purpose is Circular+"
- Joanna Stern, Wall Street Journal

"I've tried them all and Circular is by far the best "tiny planet" app. You get more controls and fun effects like lens flares and moons. Having a blast with this app!"
- Customer Review

"I tried different Tiny planet apps, but this is really the best. Love that I can put different things inside the picture ... Thanks for the great work."
- Customer Review

This app does so much more than just turn your image into a tiny planet. It has all kinds of effects you can add and you have a lot of control over how it twists your image.

Another really cool feature is a collection of "center" objects. These include spheres, planets, and geometric shapes to place at the center of your image circle. This turns your image into a mini world.

- Super fast and responsive editing
- Adjust image zoom, rotation, invert-mode, and repeats
- Professional effects: lens flares, sky objects, and centers. The lens flares are the same as the pro desktop app, LensFlare Studio
- Filters and Lens Textures
- Fun sample images to get your started

This one’s on top.

Nothing but fun! If you are a creative person that’s always looking for a creative thing to do then get this app. Just snap pictures every once in a while. Import into this app and start playing with it. If you see something that has a bunch of pretty colors then snap a picture of it and import it into this app. Twist and turn and spin it all over the place and you’ll come up with something cool.

There was a negative review posted saying that this does not have an intuitive UI. I’m not sure she/he really tried. It can’t be simpler. Import a picture then move left to right using the controls along the bottom. If you want to add elements then you use the layer function located at the bottom of the screen.

I actually haven’t been using this for tiny world stuff lately. I create abstract art in other apps then important to this app to create some twisted visuals. I then import into a final editing app for touchups.

If you are a creative then you’ll have fun just taking snapshots of random things and then twisting them in this app to see what you can create. It’s a great app that offers a lot of spontaneity to your creativity.

This developer also offers some other great apps to do some wild things to your images so don’t stop here. Get super creative.

And, no, I am not paid to write this review. I actually studied photography in college and like screwing around with photography apps on my phone.

Most Excellent App! Best Customer Support Ever!

First, this is probably the most versatile and creative app out there for jumping into the realm of phone photography. It can take the most mundane objects, and with a little creativity and two thumbs, create mind boggling images and wonderful visual puzzles. Love this app!
Oh, and if you are someone who is prone to “user error,” you can rely on top flight, first person assistance in walking you through the dumbest of neophyte blunders. Mr. Grote was patient, curious to find the problem, and generally pretty kind considering the error remedy was right in front of this reviewers eyes all along.

The short of it... 5 STARS!!!

My Second Five Star Review For Them!

In my original review, I gave them five stars and said this was one of my favorite photo editing apps. Now that they’ve updated, I feel I need to review again, and say amazing job! I love the new options to edit and the new people I can use in the photo if I want.
