After five months of great success and 4 million downloads on iOS, photo-editing app Repix has finally launched on Android.
It’s nothing new for Android users to have to sit and wait while an app blows up, but those months of having iPhone-using friends show off the app in your face are over, as Google Play now has its very own Repix app.
Repix is the brainchild of Finnish mobile app developer Sumoing, and the app is much the same as the iOS original. Repix brings a brand of photo “remixing” that is unlike similar apps on the market and allows users to edit images with filters, effects, brushes and frames to completely transform photos into images that resemble paintings or even graphic design works. If you love your Instagram filters then you are sure to love this app; in fact, even if filters are not your thing, there is still a lot of fun to be had here; and 4 million downloads on Apple is proof of this.
“Since launching on iOS, the last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind,” said Sumoing CEO, Ilkka Teppo.
“It’s been great to see how the app and the Repix brushes has been received by so many people around the world and the feedback they’ve given us has been fantastic. We’ve been working hard on getting Android version ready after receiving lots of requests for it and we can’t wait for users to get their hands on it.”
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note can enjoy Repix in a slightly different way to other Android users, as the pressure sensitivity features are integrated with S Pen. There is also built-in support for Samsung Galaxy S4 Air View technology, so users can see the size of a brush by hovering their finger over the device.
Repix is available now as a free download. However, the app is a freemium one where users will have to pay for extra brushes and filters.
