Is it really necessary for every app to be able to take a photo and add filters to it? Apparently it is! The Twitter app got an update last night which saw it get new photo filters and cropping.
I’ve had a quick look but I have yet to actually use it. You see I, like many others either shoot in a dedicated camera app like Camera+ (now that I have an iPhone), or Instagram. There are plenty of other apps that people us including the native camera apps that come with phones these days.
The problem I see with this Twitter update and the less talked about Flickr update (which was awhile ago now) is that they aren’t bringing anything new to the party. It’s still falls under an Instagram clone in my books which is a pity.
If you’ve used the Twitter photo filters, how did you like them? Share some of your photos.
