Most mobile devices have a camera built-in and are pre-installed with a camera app for general uses. If you need more features in snapping pictures and worry less about editing them later, it’s worthwhile to look for third-party camera apps.
Third party apps may offer anything that you think of. If you favor a huge list of filters to create special effects instantly on taking a photo, look no further than this outstanding camera app Retrica.
This app contains more than 100 filters categorised into several themes like Chic, Allure, Cinema, Retro, etc. All are available for free. Select one you like and get a live preview of filter effects before you hit the shutter key. When there’s a need, use a slider above the filters to adjust their strengths.
Besides being rich in filters, Retrica offers more than 20 layouts to make collages of photos spontaneously upon shooting consecutive or non-consecutive images at either manual or timed intervals of your choice.
It's not difficult to figure out the use of this app with all intuitive and user-friendly design, which extends to setting a timer, selecting a focus and adjusting light exposures where available depending on the device you use.
Photos taken with this app are accessible from its folder or the photo gallery, ready for uploading to the cloud or sharing with friends and family on social media platforms.
Retrica is free but regrettably in this version it stamps a small logo on the bottom right corner of snapped pictures, even though you may be able to select a logo that is less obvious from a list of several flavors.
