Android App Tablet Review: Picplz

by Caitlin M. Foyt

Picplz is an app that gives photos on your tablet that faded, vintage look.

The app allows users to create artsy photographs using different retro effect filters like instant film, Russian toy camera, or high contrast monochrome.

What makes Picplz so notable is how easy it makes the whole process of styling and sharing your photos. Right after you snap and save a photo, the app provides immediate samples of how each filter looks. This way you don't have to take time trying each effect one-by-one.

When you're happy with your image, you have the option to list your location and write a caption. Then you can share your photo on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other social networks.

Though it only offers a handful of filters, they’re good ones and most tablet owners should find enough here to keep them happy.
