It’s a good-week Monday for Android users around the world. Prisma, the sensationally popular photo manipulation application for iOS, is second only to Pokeman Go in terms of blogosphere hype. In the past, the Google Play Store has been busy with fake knock offs of this awesome app. So it’s great news to really have the authentic one running. The makers of Prisma
have said that they ported all iOS functionality to the Android creation, so users shouldn’t really feel any difference.
The app has secured over 10 million installs and ‘prismed’ over 400 million pictures on iOS. After sustaining its popularity in the iOS community, Prisma hopes to make a successful run on Android. Already, a number of users seem to be lodging complaints about the app being unresponsive, but this has been caused by a server overload since Prisma relies on cloud-based processing.
Prisma doesn’t filter images the way Instagram does, but rather rebuilds photos by bonding them with the styles of other images (e.g. an artist’s signature look) using a very clever Artificial Intelligence engine. Now the challenge for Prisma is to accommodate the Android craze without succumbing to its popularity.
