Today is the official debut of GlitchWizard in the App Store. This is a really cool app that sets itself apart from other Glitch Apps because it does GIF video formats with your glitchy edits. You can also save still image edits too. So let’s get started with how the app works…
First you load up the app and you have featured Glitches to favourites to loading or taking a photo. You can also make your own Glitch Gallery. What I’m going to do is tap on the camera button.
After you tap on the camera button, you can take the photo or tap on the small box photo and load your photo. I will tap on the small photo box.
Now I’ve loaded my photo for the demo. Yes it’s a mushroom. You will see you have a play button, gear wheel and different glitch filters and editing tools.
When you tap on the gear wheel, you will see a menu pop up. This menu has play feedback speed, clear all and playback styles (linear and ping-pong). The playback style is your video loop. I can’t really see the differences in the loops but you have two options. You have 3 playback speeds, slow, medium and fast. Clear all is how you start over with your series of glitch edits. What I would like to see in the future is clear one added in a future update. Clear all is nice but you have to start over again. You also have 4 editing glitch folders, BLADE, SOUNDBLEND, PNG-RGB and ONE-HIT.
I highly recommend you play with the TRIP glitch because the slider is really cool to play with. You can make your glitch as trippy as possible.
After you’re done picking all your glitches, the tap on the NEXT button on the top left hand corner.
Toy have two different ways to save, still or animated. When you save a still it will save the glitch you made. So if you plan to save your glitch stills just do one or two glitches. The animation saves, I say go crazy with the glitches. The animation loop is 10 seconds saves, so you can load them on Instagram or anywhere else you want to post you glitchy creations. You can also save + finish your glitches in your gallery. I just save mine on the camera roll.
Here’s my Glitch Wizard creation. You can pick up Glitch Wizard at the into price of $.99 but the app will go up to $1.99. The app is universal to the iPad 2 or higher. Overall if you want something different then get this app !!! I know this app will improve and grow overtime.
