What makes Percolator stand out in the crowded photo-app market? After all, the only thing this special effects app does is add circles to your photos. Yes, circles. Lots of them: little ones, big ones, different coloured ones.
Your first step is to choose a Grind, which determines the number and size of the circles you want: a fine Grind results in lots of tiny circles. Next, select your Brew, which adjusts how dark and blended the circles look on your creation. A light Brew generates a very light overlay of circles, while a darker Brew gives the image a much more abstract look. Finally, pick how to Serve your image, adjusting the final appearance. When you’re satisfied with your new image, you can export it to the Camera Roll or share it via the usual channels.
