Pocket Monet is one of many iPhone photo apps that transform your photos into paintings. You can create paintings with a lot of detail or paintings that are more abstract and with less detail. Pocket Monet is part of a very crowded field of photo apps, but its results are reasonably good.

Pocket Monet Options

  • Pick different brush sizes to produce more or less detail
  • Pick different color palettes to create different image effects: grey, warm, autumn, summery, cool, and normal
  • Pick different frames to go with your final work of art
  • Share final images via email or Facebook

You'll probably like what Pocket Monet produces, but those results are marred somewhat by the interface. The developers should get a lot of credit for eschewing the generic photo editing interface we usually see and creating an interface that is reminiscent of actual painting.

Unfortunately, their success in creating something interesting does not mean success in creating an interface that is user-friendly. The Pocket Monet interface isn't hard to use (I've seen worse), but it gets in the way too easily. So I can't rate this art app quite a highly as I otherwise would.

The Good...

  • Pocket Monet produces full-sized images
  • Different sized brushes create images that are more still life or more abstract
  • Live, interactive effects — watch Pocket Monet "paint" according to your settings
  • Overlapping frames produce the feeling of painting
  • Interesting, non-generic interface

The Bad...

  • Interactive features seem nice, but can get in the way
