With over 30 filters in total, including a Wild Card option, you can repeatedly tap to generate randomised effects.
Everybody loves a good photo app, but there are so many in the App Store that it's hard to know where to begin. If you are looking for a photo- and video-editing app that does things a little bit different than the standard Instagram-like filters, a glitch-inducing app called Hyperspektiv might be the best place to start.
Hyperspektiv has been around for a few years, but it recently gained attraction after being featured in the App Store. The app adds random distortion effects, such as colourful glitches and floaty mirroring to a kaleidoscope twist. There are plenty of options to experiment with in Hyperspektiv which makes it worth its $1 asking price.
The app is pretty easy to use, you just load it and swipe through to choose the filter you want. The filters are applied in real time, and you can watch what you are capturing and adjust accordingly. The nifty part about the app is you can customise how the filters are applied by dragging your fingers up or down and side to side. The movements allow you to control how strongly the filters are applied, the way they move, and to change the hues.
The app is used best with videos, as the motion is what really makes the visuals pop, though it still works with photos. The app shoots HD 720p video and you can apply the filters to videos you have already taken, but you cannot edit existing photos (which is disappointing). The developers say photo editing will come in the next version "very soon".
Hyperspektiv is only available on iOS at the moment. If you are keen to try it out! In the meantime, have a look at the app in action in the video below.
