Combo Apps/Comparisons of 3 Water Reflection Apps

Reflect Demo

I’m going to show you 3 different water reflection app. All 3 apps have their strengths and weakness but that’s not all I’ll talk about with each of the apps. The top photo was edited with Reflect+ by BrainFeverMedia.

PROS: tons of great presets, tons of special effects, fog horizon line effect, filters, detailed editing tools and detailed water reflection tools.

CONS: costs more, medium resolutions saves (2048 x 1536 and 2048 x 2048) and no video or water motion saves.

Overall it’s a great water reflection app for dramatic to fantasy editing, universal to the iPad and so many mind blowing reflection categories. But what I like most is foggy horizon line, it’s one of those types effects that sets it apart from other water reflection apps besides the many water reflection presets. The only thing I wish the developer would work on is higher resolution saves.

Flood Demo

Flood Filter by Flaming Pear is the next app I’ll be talking about next. The photo up above was edited with Flood Filter. The original Flood was/is a Photoshop Plugin or standalone desktop program.

PROS: adjustable water reflection angles, detailed water reflection editing tools, simple user interface, cheapest out of the 3 apps, and high resolution saves (3264 x 2448 and 2448 x 2448).

CONS: no filters, no special effects and no video or water motion saves.

Over all this app is a cut and dry water reflection app with creative reflection angles. You can adjust the water reflection easily and very simple but power operations. Flood Filter is also universal to the iPad. What I like is the app is very stable.

Color Lake Demo

The last water reflection app is Color Lake by Ababeel Entertainment. This was the best water reflection app that came out in 2012. Color Lake had a major update in redesign and video water motion effect.

PROS: simple and sleek user interface, raining motion, snowing motion, video water motion effect, high resolution saves (3264 x 2448 and 2448 x 2448), monotone filters and Instagram 15 second video button.

CONS: costs more, limited special effects and no filters

Overall the video water reflection motion and snow/rain effect is what sets this app apart from the rest in this category. You can share your video saves on Instagram too with a 15 second limit button when you records the water motion and/or snow/rain fall effect. Color Lake is universal to the iPad. Above is the video water motion save with rain fall.

App List:

Reflect+ – $1.99
Flood Filter – $.99
Color Lake – $1.99

All three apps are strong in their own right. Out of the three apps I recommend all of them and all 3 are universal to the iPad. You really can’t go wrong with any of these apps. If you’re like me, you have all three of them on your iPhone and iPad ready to go. If you have any questions please leave comments, I hope you enjoyed this blog post and see you soon !!!
