Playing with Percolator for iPhone

Percolator for iPhone and iPad is an app for creating mosaic images from your photos.

The process of making a mosaic is straightforward. Using the app, you take a photo via the built-in camera or choose an existing photo from your photo library.

There are three types of filters to play with:

  1. Grind – turn your photo into a mosaic.
  2. Brew – choose different types of shapes, such as circles, stars and rings.
  3. Serve – add finishing touches with colour and texture.

Here are my first experiments playing with the app.

Three filter types may seem limited but the potential combinations of the settings give plenty of scope. I’m hooked already and imagine spending a lot of time using this app. It’s addictive!
