[Must-haves]: ‘A Beautiful Mess’ new phone app – available to download!

A beautiful mess_new appIf you haven’t already heard or  downloaded it by now, then let me tell you about A Beautiful Mess’s new app (now available in your iTunes store!!) that allows you to edit photos to give it that extra bit of fun factor! :) While there may be various different apps out there offering similar (usually one or the other options) this bad boy has a vast library of fonts, phrases, borders and doodles along with filters and texts….all in the ONE app making it so convenient to photo-edit!  I’m a sucker for these photo-editing apps because its great to use them when you’re blogging/posting /editing/emailing on-the-go. I’ve been using Over all this time and while that is still a great app with lots of fonts this one gives you that bit extra. You can simply position, scale or rotate the doodles /borders/fonts using your finger tips. And another thing it offers is a selection of old school backgrounds like a lined notebook or an invoice book to which you can then add text or doodles on once confirming your selection. There’s plenty more borders, texts, doodles, phrases and backgrounds to buy from them if you’re not content with their already cool selection of ‘free’ editing tools.

So, if you’re a blogger (particularly photo-bloggers), FB and Twitter poster, or simply love editing photos and making them pretty or quirky, then I would definitely recommend this to you. It really is so much fun and if you’re anything like me, it can be a great time-killer when commuting to work and back! :D My only one teeny-weeny negative comment (now correct me if I’ve missed something here!) is that once you select a border/doodle/phrase (by clicking ‘done’) and you find you change your mind later and want to change it…..you can’t seem to go back a step without having to start all over again – i.e. by selecting your image again and going through the editing process again. I’ve even tried going through the border doodle/phrase menu again thinking that by selecting another it would ‘swap’ it for the previously selected….like you would find in PicFrame, but it just adds another border/doodle/phrase on top of what you had already selected. It’s not life or death but it can be a tad bit frustrating if you have second thoughts especially when layering text with doodles – so not one for the OCD and meticulous types! :P  So if you are going to hit ‘done‘ make sure you’re totally happy with it!! You’re edited image is then automatically saved to your phone image library after which you have the choice to share it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram….or simply start another!

Anyhoo….here’s a few images I had taken with my phone (© Made by Molu) that I played around with on my way home using the new app! I love it and I must admit it’s quite addictive….so don’t say I didn’t warn you!! :D  So…what do you think folks? For more info hop along to Elsie and Emma’s blog! xx   photo 5 photo 2
