It's been quite a while now that Prisma has been trending hot across the globe among the smartphone users. After creating a lot of buzz among i-Phone users, Prisma has finally landed on the Android platform. It's a vogue for the people who love to share photos on social media. We reviewed the app and are sharing our views on it.

Among a plethora of apps and filters bestowing conversions of our pics to arts, Prisma has created its own niche. It has a simple interface and resembles Instagram to some extent. We can take a picture through our cameras or even pick any photo from our device and convert it into artistic forms. These pictures can be shared on social media such as facebook and Instagram.

The interface is smooth and user-friendly. At the top of the app is a frame where you can capture your photo and below is a single button to click your pic. It also has a small thumbnail at the bottom clicking on which we can select the photos from our device.

Just like Instagram, photos are cropped to square size and then the filters are applied. The segregating factor of Prisma is that it offers around 20 artistic filters inspired by famous painters across the world. Some of the awesome filters to name would be Edvard Munch's The Scream, Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke, and Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Prisma has even more variety to offer than these few names.

Prisma deploys Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence for its functioning. The use of these technologies seems to work for the app. The edit results of the app are far more alluring than other apps of the clan.

Some of the filters work real fine and some are just mediocre. If we edit a photo of artworks, the result is a mess. Also, pictures with a lot of detailing don't get affected much by the filters, while the pictures with lesser details give beautiful results.

Prisma has a couple of issues as well. The app works fine on iOS but on Android, it takes a lot of time to apply the filter. Having said that, the edit result of the app is worth the wait. Also, there is a long list of unreal apps with the similar names making rounds. This sometimes tricks users into using fake Prisma. Unlike Instagram, Prisma is not something one would use on all of his photos. Thus the app doesn't have a much-prolonged scope and with time it will be lost.

To conclude, we would say that Prisma is a fantastic app. It helps you to have a portrait of yours, from famous painters. At least the pic seems to be the work of these famous artists. Despite some minor issues, you sure should give it a shot.
