>Retroid For Android Adds Retro Effects To Your Photos


If you’re fond of adding snazzy effects to your photos before sharing them over the web then you should definitely give Retroid for Android a try. The freeware allows you to retroize photos taken from a shortcut within the app itself, plus any image stored on the SD card of the device.
New to the Market, the freeware doesn’t (as of this writing) offer as many effects as older, more popular picture editors, but the ones that it does look absolutely amazing – as good as, or perhaps even better, than those offered by the iOS’s flagship photo-snazzifier, Instagram. Also, the developers have promised additional effect packs in future updates.
The app has a good-looking user interface – a rarity in the Android app world. At the same time, it is very easy to use. Simply select an effect from the available effect pack, then tap search to select a picture from the SD card or snap to take a new photo. If you have multiple camera apps installed, tapping snapwill display a list of all said apps, allowing you to select one of your choice.

Once you’re done taking a photo or selecting an image from your SD card, the app shows you a preview of the picture with the effect applied, allowing you to save it to the SD card or share it directly over the web or Bluetooth. Feast your eyes on the screenshots below.
We tested the application with a few camera apps. Using both MIUI and Cyanogenmod 7’s native camera apps via the snap option, Retroid ended up distorting the picture significantly after applying the selected effect.
However, with Camera360 (a popular camera app available on the Android Market for free) said distortion was not observed. Alternatively, you could always use the native camera application to take pictures and use Retroid afterwards to apply effects.
