Photo App Online

 

SnapMe is a basic photo editing app for the iPhone. It has one primary function: apply a color filter to your photo. You can pick from seven colors: black, blue, brown, green, orange, red, and yellow.

Snap Me Features Summary

  • Color Overlay/Effects
  • Retro Effects
  • Photo Sharing (email, Facebook)
  • In-App Photo Taking
  • Use Images from Photo Library

The Good...

  • Generally simple to understand and use
  • Lets you move the picture around and choose exactly where/how to crop to a square format image

The Bad...

  • App is limited to saving out small images, suitable only for email and on-screen viewing
  • Square format of the images forces you to crop or scale your originals
  • When creating a default "send to" email address for sharing, app does not let you choose from the contacts in your address book
  • No landscape mode
  • No option to save and continue working on the same photo - saving means going back to the intro screen and starting over by picking or taking a new photograph

The Ugly...

  • App crashes when scaling up or down
  • No space bar for the caption text
  • Option "Date in Subject" for emailing photos produced emails with dates ranging from 11/20/10 to 11/27/10, even though all emails were sent within a few minutes of each other on 8/11/10

Using SnapMe

You can either take a photo within the SnapMe app or pick a file from your photo library. First you'll need to decide how to crop or scale the photo so you're working with a square image. To apply a filter, you just need to click on one of seven colored squares.

Your edited image is given a square frame to make it look like a photo taken with an old square format camera and small pieces of tape are applied to the top and bottom to make it look like the photo was taped to a wall or other vertical surface. If you want, you can apply a short caption that appears on the bottom piece of tape in a typewriter font (thus continuing the retro effect).

You can either save the final image to your photo library or share it with friends via email or Facebook. Because the final product is so small, it seems designed to create images specifically for sharing online — you definitely won't be able to do anything beyond using them for on-screen display.

Whether the color effects produce a good image will depend a lot upon the subject of your original photo. The stronger colors — blue, red, and green — will probably only look good with a narrow range of subjects. Black produces a fair black & white photo. The other colors — brown, yellow, and orange — produce different retro and sepia effects that are actually decent.

There are a lot of "cons" listed above, but the app still get 2 stars because most of what it does, it does reasonably well and for free. Most of the problems don't affect core functionality. If the app didn't crash and a spacebar were available when type in the caption, SnapMe would get 2.5 stars.
