Photo editing apps for iOS devices are quite popular because users can quickly manipulate photos without ever having to touch a computer. There are so many available that it’s hard to find the perfect one. I have a whole folder on my home screen dedicated to these apps.

Wrapcam is the newest photo editing app, but it’s not quite the same as the others. It does use a variety of filters, but these different filter options and effects are designed to let users wrap and roll pictures to create impressive photo art. It’s like taking a picture and wrapping it up in decorative paper or cloth.

To get started, users can access the main menu at the top and bottom to utilize the many different photo editing features of the app. Take a snapshot or choose one from the Camera Roll, and then select different editing features like shapes, wraps, filters and frames to customize the picture.

Photos are wrapped by dragging fingers onto the photos to create different effects. If a preset wrap doesn’t look impressive, it’s possible to make a custom wrap. There are also over 20 different filter effects to give photos different looks. One of the neatest features about Wrapcam is that different filter effects can by combined by adding one filter on top of another so users have thousands of combinations to use. Other exciting options include brightening, colorizing and unifying photos.

Wrapcam has an intuitive interface that makes it a breeze to use, and it is packed with plenty of fun features. Where it falls short is that it needs more professional features. There aren’t any intensity sliders, it could use more artistic effects and the photo editing screen seems small on the iPhone 4S screen. It would be nice to hide the menu bars in the background or place them over the picture so that it looks larger on the screen.

I’ve watched this app improve over just a few short weeks, and feel like the developers have hit the sweet spot. While a few tweaks here and there would help make it better, it has plenty of photo editing options to keep most users satisfied for a while. It comes in at an affordable $0.99, but those who like to try before they buy can check out Wrapcamfree here first.
