Completely Replaces My Kaleidoscope

I have a kaleidoscope that I enjoy looking at a few times a year. Then I put it back where it sits on the shelf using up space. Now I just look through this app which gives me the same beautiful affects, but which uses no space in my home. This probably won't be your number one app, but it should absolutely be in your collection.

Better than Adobe Capture in some respects

Love the spirals! And being able to see the pattern directly instead of going through a couple of steps puts it ahead of Adobe Capture, I think. But to be truly useful, I'd like to see this app save patterns to my Adobe library so I can use them more readily in Photoshop. As it is, they're only JPEGs and I have to go through more steps to use them in my art. Nonetheless, it's MUCH more useful than most other Kaleidoscope apps.

Very nice camera app.

It is very useful for creating complex geometric abstract patterns, it is very simple but I love this app.
I am working and practicing with digital graphics and vectors, I am using frequently KaleidaCam, to me it i been very useful and I am learning, how develop very interesting and beautiful graphics combining different kind of apps in my iPad Pro, this app it is one of my favorite apps.
