PopAGraph leads iOS Apps of the Week

by Dan Kricke

I hope you’re not sick of photo-editing apps just yet! This week’s top iOS apps list leads off with a very unique take on photo editing apps with PopAGraph, which lets you turn your photos into 3D art. Other top apps include one for classic poems, a wedding scrapbooking app, an app to catalogue your baby’s every move and another to tune your instruments.

PopAGraph (Free)

The saturation on Instagram and Instagram-like apps is through the roof at this point, but PopAGraph might have found a way to break through the din and stake its claim. Rather than focusing on filters to alter their color or style of photos, PopAGraph “lifts” portions of a user’s image to make it appear three-dimensional. The app auto-lifts specific objects in images and from there, users can apply additional filters to the background image or the popped portion of the photos. Photos can then be posted to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook right from the app.
