Smart app packed with filters

Various features, convenient interface
Not enough of settings
As an application that takes photos with effects selected, Retrica sure may look like one of those many photo clicking/editing apps out there but don’t be mistaken, it sure has some cool features that make it stand out from among the rest.
This amazing app packs in 55 free and 25 paid filters that work wonderfully, and best of all, it allows you to load those filters even before you click a photo, which is really cool! You’ll also find some additional effects (vingette, self-timer, selectable borders, photo booth, that sort of stuff) which makes it a worthy of the download.
You’ll also find 14 stunning watermarks to choose from, with a convenient option to turn it off from the settings too!
Apart from the variety of effects, there are some special ones too that can be availed through the pro version which also discards those unnecessary ads. The settings offer the basic customizability such as watermarks and geotagging, and it might be worth mentioning that it also supports taking pictures from the front camera (selfie addicts, anyone?) along with shuffle option that puts any random effect for the ones trying to experiment.
To sum it up, this application sure has its set of highs and lows, however, it can be summed up as a good camera application that does its job well. But if you are one of those who really hungry for more effects and want to get rid of those nasty ads, there’s the pro version available.
