What the Tech? App of the day: Prisma

Posted: Updated:

Apple and Google have named their "App of the Year" for 2016 and it isn't the one you might have guessed.

Prisma is a photo finishing app that turns ordinary photos into works of art. It's one of hundreds of photo filter apps in the app stores but the results from the app are far and away better than the rest.

The app doesn't just overlay filters, Prisma uses artificial intelligence to recreate the photos using styles from famous artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Levitan. It also has world famous patterns such as mosaic, femme, composition, and mondrian. The finished results are astounding. Prisma's Instagram account features hundreds of photos that were turned into art using the app that may blow your mind knowing the images originated as photos from a smartphone.

I found it great for selfies but even better for photos of landscapes.

Many people expected Pokemon Go to get the nod for App of the Year but the honor goes to Prisma which was released in June.

Google did name Pokemon Go its Game of the Year while Apple gave the honor to Clash Royale.

Prisma is a free app for both iPhones and Android devices.
