i found an iPhone app called deco pic ☆ people who have iPhones and want a good purikura-style photo app but can’t stand those lame overrated ones with tacky stamps and frames, this app is recommended ♪( ´▽｀)
oh and it’s free and not restricted to only the japanese app storeヽ(；▽；)ノ
this is the homepage. rather tasteful, actually. for once an app doesn’t display sample photos that are totally impossible to make on the app (￣ー￣)
so i tried a picture.
cute and attractive stamps—lots of them! definitely the best part of the app ☆ sweet and a large variety of deco; my favourite are the alpaca stamps. you’ll definitely find stamps that you love.
not as plentiful as the single stamps, but the roller stamps are just as lovely. the only problem is that you can’t change the size (｀__´)ゞ
pen tool is less fanciful and there isn’t a wide variety, but still useful for scribbling on the picture. the pastel colours are pretty sweet (⌒▽⌒)
nice and quirky Japanese fonts! you can choose different colours too, they turn out quite nicely.
finally, frames!ヾ(＠⌒ー⌒＠)ノ cute and instant, good for people who just want to quickly slap something decorative on their pictures. i particularly like this feature（＾◇＾）
the final picture ☆ meh it’s them again.
a pretty good app! it’s a nice change from those annoyingly tacky photo apps who claim to be ‘just like your kawaii purikura machines in japan!!!11’ please.
as a huge purikura lover i’m constantly looking for all these purikura-style apps, but failing most of the time because the good ones are all available only in the Japan app store.
so this is a fairly good find, i think. (^^)/
