Lenshare is hands-down one of the coolest apps I've had the pleasure of reviewing! This unique app takes the basic features of iPhones and iPads and combines them in a way that will make your heart soar.
Having reviewed dozens upon dozens of Photo & Video apps, I was tired of seeing collage apps, Instagram-support apps, and the other generic types of apps in this category, but Lenshare is definitely a breath of fresh air.
Lenshare combines visuals, sound, and readability into a beautiful format, allowing you to not just capture photos or create memes out of your moment, but rather capture its “essence.”
The app has a unique built-in camera which not only takes a photo but also starts recording audio, be it a serene view of the ocean with the sound of the waves crashing and birds chirping, or the scene on a dancefloor with the sound of the music.
Users can also re-record the sounds if they feel they didn't get it right the first time, or record a voice-over describing the photograph.
Lenshare has been highly touted by Apple, BBC, and Gizmodo, and with good reason. The moments you record will be captured and stored in the app's cloud, but you don't have to worry about privacy, as there are plenty of precautions taken to bolster its security.
Before you can share your moments, you will be asked to verify your account with your phone number. You will need to enter your number so that a verification code can be sent to you, but unfortunately I did not get one. There is a support section inside the app where users can contact the developers; I'm waiting to hear back on this issue.
Fortunately, this doesn't detract from the usability of this app as users can still enjoy capturing and saving their moments in a unique and refreshing way.
