Instaz Enhances Photos With a Single Swipe

Whatever Apps announces Instaz, “swipe only” photo editor for iOS. The app makes editing images as simple as a swipe of a finger. The app’s built-in artificial intelligence analyzes each photo and performs complex edits. It improves colors, composition and adds popular Instagram effects, such as frames, collages, dust, stickers and many others.

 

 

Instaz does away with the need to come up with a design and then apply photo effects one-by-one using several apps.  Instead, a single swipe automatically performs creative edits.

 

“Like Tinder has changed the industry of dating apps, we want to change the process of creating eye-catching stories and photos for social media,” says Whatever Apps CEO Ivan Abramov. ‘Just swipe, we will do the rest’ – that is the app’s approach.”

 

This app eliminates the problem facing non-designers spending long minutes on editing, only to come up with a result that is worse than the initial photo itself. Current editors require time consuming effort for a single Instagram post or stories.

 

“The app protects your privacy by performing all photo analyzing algorithms on the device. The app never sends the photos or any associated data back to us, we never see your photos,” continues Ivan. “The more you use the app, the better the artificial intelligence understands your photo editing preferences, suggesting the best photo designs customized for you.”

 

Instaz is free and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo and Video category. Unlimited edit saves are available upon subscription purchase. Subscriptions are available as a convenient in-app purchase of $2.99 per month or $22 per year (A yearly subscription saves $14.00 USD).
