Thanks to Hongkiat.com for posting a nice review of Spotliter. Here are some excerpts from the post:

Insert Interactive Filters To Videos & Photos With Spotliter [IOS]

Apps such as Instagram allows you to add layers onto your photos. These type of apps are very popular due to the photo filtering functionality, allowing users to create photographs that have a certain type of look to them. Some developers have tried the same with video, where a filter is added to achieve different color effects.

Spotliter, however, goes beyond simple color filters. The free app provides the users more than the usual black & white or sepia filters. Spotliter provides interactive filters where users can create videos while manipulating the filter effects as they shoot them. Let’s check out the app, shall we?…

…The amazing thing about the app is that all of the filters can be applied and changed while the video is being recorded. You can use one filter one moment, then change it to another in the next second. It also allows you to pause your video recording, giving you time to switch filters before resuming.

…and now a video using the SKETCH touch effect.

A few days ago, we posted some cool looking photos taken in NYC using the SKETCH touch effect. But SKETCH also works amazingly well when you use it to record video and capture things which are moving all around you. Check out this video of the same NYC streets using SKETCH. A friend told us that it reminded her of that Aha music video from a generation ago (Take on me)! Check it out – it’s only 10 seconds.

Recording this is about as simple as you get – Just start Spotliter, go into video capture mode, select SKETCH and move your finger on the screen to see what part of the screen you want in SKETCH mode and what part you want to record “unfiltered.” Start recording. That’s it. You can even move your finger around on the screen while recording to change the sketch area.

It was warm outside for the first time in a while here in midtown Manhattan – so started walking around taking pictures with Spotliter and really got into the SKETCH touch effect for some reason. Just slide or tap your finger on what you want to look “real” and snap your photo. Pretty simple.
