Your move, Instagram filters

1. The photo-editing app works on the basic premise of turning your mundane photos into impressive artwork. Don’t mistake it for your everyday filter based app though, because it runs on a combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence to apply its effects in the most optimal way after scanning the data.

How to use it: After installing Prisma from iTunes, the app works on an interface similar to Instagram: users are allowed to take pictures or select snaps from their gallery and then apply a bunch of filters which are styled after famous artists such as Marc Chagall or Edvard Munch. Finish off by sharing on Facebook or Instagram with the push of a button.
