This was one of the first apps I downloaded when I received my iPad a few years ago and I must say that it was a great choice. It

It's easy to use, but quite entertaining and creates dreamy pictures. Love it.

(4★) Great, fun app…
… Easy to use, great visual results. In my eyes, only two things keep it from being completely perfect: the results of using the
"adding ink" feature are dark artifacts that break the border of the

(5★) Excellent idea
This was a great idea for an app and tastefully designed. I love the cute little names they use and the options and colors are
wonderful. I've played with it all afternoon today and love trying differ

I like to play with all the different features of the app and even with the examples. I design graphics and this is a fun one to

(3★) Buzz Kill
The pictures and reviews built this app up and I had high hopes, but I gotta say I'm a little bummed. The effects have no option
to adjust strength or transparency and they simply drown out about 75%

(5★) best artistic art filter app out there
no crashes no problems. best and original artistic app for iphone. best of all no in app purchases you get everything with the
original purchase.

(5★) Umm luv!
Love this app as well as the percolator app! Nothing I would change about it, other than picking up darker skin tones, and
allowing the photo's actual color be watercolor-ified

(3★) So So
No overly crazy about this app. I tried it on a few pictures and the images wash out and you lose detail.

Cool color effects! I love it! Great app for picture taking and editing!
Jul 17, 2013
(5★) This is amazing!
The best app ever! Whoever came up with this was really smart! So good for edits/photoshop :)
Jul 16, 2013
(4★) Fun but needs a few tweaks
Love the app except that there is no way to clear the image and start over without shutting it down and reopening. Also needs an
undo feature.
Jul 06, 2013
(5★) Great to add to your collection.
I am usually not inclined to download an app that transforms your photo into some other look alike medium. But I really like
percolator by the same developer. This app first, does a great job and seco

(5★) Fun, fun, fun!
Learned about Popsicolor in Watercolor Artist magazine. Have been struggling with lack of inspiration for a while, and this app
gave me some great new ideas. It also helped nudge me out of my comfort

(5★) Love it
This is one of my favorite apps!
(5★) Very fun color design tool
A unique coloring tool for blending various shades and then some. Cheers to the developer for updating and keeping the app
evolving. It would be nice if there was a way to blend in the raw photograph

Great for what it should do but it crashes tooooooo much!

(2★) Difficult to work with
I know photoshop and illustrator and my way around other graphics programs but this one is pretty tricky. You can spend hours
working one photo just to resign yourself that it will never be much of a

(5★) Nice!
Lovely colors and effects to apply to your photos. Not like your usual photo editor and definitely worth getting!
Jan 22, 2013
(3★) Fun with limited control and low resolution
Pros: It is fun and easy to use, yes. Cons: It will save at lower resolution and there is no fine control for the amount of
effects that are applied to the image. sometimes lots of details are lost in

After this update, I am loving Popsicolor! The new gradients, focus, ink and colors make it much easier to get good results on a
wider variety of photos. Plus, more options more fun! Before the updat

(3★) Not as great as percolator
I first bought percolator and when I saw this app was made by the same company I bought it as well. It makes lovely photos but it
provides very few ways to play around with the editing. Percolator has

(4★) One Request
Id love the ability to erase certain parts of the photo before adding effects. For example say I have an excellent picture of a
family member but the background is not needed. I just want to Popsicolo

(5★) Love this app!
Best app ever! It takes any pic I have and blends colors to make it even more fun! I definitely recommend this app for ppl who
loves colors!
Jul 10, 2012
(3★) Good effect, little control
The watercolor-like effect looks great, but there are almost no controls for it, you can make very limited color choices (all of
which are the pastels you see in the example images here) and choose be

(3★) Pretty but too dark
Not enough flexibility and too dark. It only looks good if your picture just right. Colors are ok. Looks like watercolor.
Limited. I did one or two pictures and gave up
Jul 08, 2012
(4★) Very nice!
Popsicolor turns my photos into something fun and new. You do, however, need a very well-defined photo in order to make the
finished product look nice.

What fun! This is a keeper. Worth a lot more than its present cost!Thank you for a job well-done.

Great app and fun to mess with. Hope to see more colors and an option for even finer detail!
Jul 04, 2012
(5★) Nailed it.
This is awesome and fun. Just get it. No thinking required, you just get cool watercolors from your photos.
(4★) Real Nice
Really nice very well done. If the colors where a bit more saturated or if we can have control over the saturation and contrast
that would be "Ace".
(5★) Great
Turns your photos into beautiful watercolor paintings! (makes me want to eat a Popsicle too!)
(5★) Another amazing app from Tinrocket
Both Popsicolor and Percolator are deceptively simple apps that actually, when fully understood and used in conjunction with other
apps, yield amazing results!
(4★) Pretty cool
This app makes some cool pics, but I wish it could do a little more. This seems like it should be free, but it is pretty cool.
Percolator can do a lot more.
Jun 26, 2012
(5★) Awesome!
I bein Waiting on this app for a while and it is absoultly amazing!

(4★) Nice App
I like it! Would love to see grays & blacks. (not real Popsicle colors but images would be striking) .
(5★) Another masterpiece!
Very very simple, but stunning outcome! Love two-tone gradient water color!
(5★) Worth the download
Popsicolor is highly original. The effect really does look like a watercolor painting and not a computer filter. Seeing developers
design new apps like this one is refreshing when most are still copyi
