A challenge for the developer could be dealing with the mammoth amount of Android users.
A new app called Prisma is the latest viral craze to take over B-Town!
This addictive app turns everyday ordinary photos into visually appealing works of art. And most importantly, it’s free!
Unlike Instagram, Prisma has a variety of filters. However, the twist here is that all these 36 filters are based on famous paintings.
For instance, Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’ is a filter, and a ‘Mondrian’ filter is created for Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.
Other notable styles draw inspiration from renowned painters like Van Gogh, Picasso and Levitan.
Users can also adjust the intensity of the filter.
The app weighs approximately 7MB and requires Android 4.1 KitKat OS and later versions to run.
Prisma, which is available on iOS and Android, is fast gaining momentum worldwide, having recorded 16.5 million downloads on iOS alone.
It is incredibly popular in India too. Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor have become huge fans of the app!

Prisma has an array of new features in the works, such as Prisma Video, 360-degree images and other ‘styles’ to turn photos into arts.
However, a challenge for the app developer could be dealing with the mammoth amount of Android users.
The app servers are believed to have faced strain after the sudden surge in its popularity among iOS users.
It is clear that the Prisma is competing with other photo-editing apps like Instagram, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Photo Editor Pro, Airbrush and more.
But its combination with Instagram makes it more fascinating than the rest, regardless of whether you’re a photogenic individual.
How amazing is it to vary the Lux, brightness and saturation, while transforming your selfies into digital art?
With Prisma, you can now pursue the #NoFilter photo challenge with an edgy twist!
