Notes r my thing ,


I have another photography app that can convert given pictures to Kaleidoscope format which was my favorite..... But, now that I got KaleidaCam where you can actually see the changes as you move the camera around it has blown me away! I immediately texted everyone I know with an iPhone to recommend this app to them. ANY age can enjoy this app and make beautiful photos. I honestly cannot say enough nice things about the app. It is simple to use and the effects are just amazing! Thank you for making such a beautiful app!

Can't put it down

Don't buy this app IF YOU WANT TO GET ANY OTHER WORK DONE. As soon as I started to use it had to get the add on pack for .99 to add even more effects. Just little movements & whole new images appear. Don't forget to try it on imported pictures from your camera roll. For the person who had problems saving to camera roll - go to settings then you can choose camera roll only or app only or save to both. WHAT A FUN APP - sent a bunch of IM's to friends to tell them to get this app. A BIG 5 😃😃😃😃😃

Brilliant, fun, and a creative tool

KaleidaCam deserves one of my rare 5-star reviews. Is it really perfect? I don't know, but it does everything that I want it to, in a well-designed, stable interface.

As a kid, one of my favorite toys was a four-sided optical kaleidoscope by Creative Playthings. It was like this, a square wood looking glass with mirrors on four internal sides, I had so much fun exploring symmetry in everyday objects.

This app does so much better. Better optics, better "glass" and a large variety of effects beyond just a four-sided mirror. I agree with another commenter who is a quilter; this app is great for discovering design ideas, especially textures, patterns and symmetrical objects like mandalas. The developer has offered one additional in-app effect for purchase so far, so this app is built to be extensible.

Nicely done.
