I admit it, I’m a fool for iPhone apps, especially camera apps and particularly when they are free.

So yesterday when I stumbled across the free Manga-Camera on the top 25 list, I hit download purty darn fast.

It doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s a lot of fun. Choose a frame, take a photo (no front facing camera availability yet and no importing other photos yet) and the app transforms the photo into manga fun.

Here, of course, the ubiquitous kitteh photo.
The Feline is always the first model for any new camera or camera app.

And then, the all important selfie.


Except I have no idea what those Kanji characters say. Probably something odd.

Ah well. I won’t let that get in the way of my fun.

Ignorance is bliss?

    Pretty dangled cool. I have to limit myself now. I have twelve photo apps. It’s kind of like shoes- I have a gazillion pairs but only wear maybe four of them. Gah!

      Nat – I have to Spring clean my apps, especially photography and games. If I can’t remember when I last used them, then off the phone they go. And now when a new photography app comes in, one has to go out. Since everything is backed up on my iTunes, I can add them back if I want. But I agree, easy to have way too many apps!
