Suffer from plain or boring photos?

Taking photos on your cellphone is easy & convenient, but how many times have you taken a picture and thought “This looks a bit plain” or “This looks boring compared to other photos I’ve seen”. Phototreats is a free photo enhancing app that adds vibrancy, mood and flavor transforming your photo into something memorable. It is the latest FREE photo app released by Stepcase adding to the popular Actioncam, and Darkroom apps (which have exceeded 1.5 million downloads!).

The idea behind Phototreats is to give your photos a different feeling in a easy to use way by applying different filters that reflect the seasons, the different decades, various regions, styles, and times of the day. Each category contains a selection of filters that can be applied to your photograph in an instant. After the filters are applied the photos are modified to reflect different moods, emotions, feelings or eras which add an extra dimension or a touch of spice to the photo. The filters raise the photos to the next level particularly when you share them, making you feel more proud about the quality of the photo that you are sharing.

The filters are categorised into 5 different flavors each attempting to represent a style. 3 of the filters are free with the download and 2 are additional premium packs that cost $0.99:

My Eats – Reproducing that exotic color of faraway, special places.
My Styles – Conveys that special feeling and message with this tailor-crafted group of filters.
My Day – Capture the moods and lighting of different times of the day.
My Seasons – Enhance the sensation of the four seasons. ($0.99)
My Times – Feeling funky? This pack of filters captures the essence of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. ($0.99)
