Colorburn - 1000 Filters Camera app review: apply beautiful filters



Instead of settling for rather standard-looking photos why not apply a beautiful and brilliant filter and completely transform the look? The Colorburn app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives you a whopping 1,000 filters that you can use. You'll never have to settle for boring again because this massive selection seems to provide an endless amount of possibilities. Not to worry, moving through the filters couldn't be easier or faster thanks to the finger scrolling functionality.

Find the Perfect Color

It's amazing how much of an impact filters can have on photos and here's your chance to see first-hand how filters transform photos. The Colorburn app provides users with 1,000 different filters and what's great is that all of them are available through the purchase of the app. There is no need for in-app purchases on top of the initial fee. In order to provide the best filters possible the app has been created by developers, designers, and photographers who have an eye for photography and beauty. In order to move through the filters, just scroll through using your finger.

The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has 2.5 out of five stars from users. Users have commented that the app actually has so many filters that it becomes cumbersome and time-consuming to go through them. Users appreciate that you can mark filters as favorites in order to help out the selection process. The app also has a lack of features, as users have pointed out.

Where the App is Lacking

For all its variety of filters the Colorburn app is also lacking in a few areas, as users have pointed out. There is a definite lack of features and tools here, which can make things slow and rather clunky. Each time you want to view a filter you need to load it, which takes a few seconds, then you can save them as favorites as you like. You can do a time-lapse selfie through the app and apply filters to it and then edit it by adding a frame and cropping it. Of course making all these photos is only fun if you can share them, which you can through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Tumblr, and Flickr.

It feels like an app that is halfway there; it’s got great bones and a great concept, but just needs to work on the follow-through.
