LensBoost

With many apps already out there competing for the space, LensBoost takes a new approach to letting you add great looking vintage, and retro effects to your photos, and then sharing them with your friends over Twitter, Facebook, and BBM. LensBoost offers a straight forward and fast UI with unique vintage and retro filters / frames instead which allows for quick and easy adjustments to your full sized images, no cropping involved thanks in part, to it being built using BlackBerry WebWorks.

Feature Overview:

  • Apply filters in SECONDS, not minutes!
  • Filter full-screen images, no cropping needed
  • Share photos over BBM, Facebook, and Twitter
  • TiltShift – Create depth of field in your photos
  • 12 Unique vintage, and retro style filters
  • 6 Frames/Borders
  • More to come in the very near future!

Developed in part, at the San Francisco BlackBerry Hackathon and having won the 2nd place award at the DevCon WebWorks Hackathon - LensBoost is set up as a BBM Connected allowing you to easily share between BBM friends but the sharing options also include Twitter and Facebook.

You can grab LensBoost from BlackBerry App World for only $1.99 or you can drop a comment here on why you think you should have a copy and you could win 1 of the 25 copies we have available to give away. Keep in mind; LensBoost is currently only available for BlackBerry 7 devices so don't enter to win if you're not making use of a compatible device.

Godzfavrt

Sweet! Good luck folks!

bldshd

I should win because I never win anything, and it would make up for my bold 9930 not having auto focus!

tedesco

oh another picture app... I like taking pictures. I should win.

EeyoreFan75

Would love a copy! Love to take pix and add that "little something" to make it special :)

CheerfulChe

Oh, this app would be nice for those of us who suffer a lot from the lack of AF on our bittersweet 9900/30s. Including me of course :) Just to make the shots we take not that crappy.
Thanks, CrackBerry!

13david77

I love using the camera on my 9850, but haven't found a photo editing app yet that I like. Wouldn't mind giving this a try. Retro/vintage is more my style :) looks fun.

neuralwolf

Crackberry custy: ide love a copy!

mikeypugs

I would love this as I find taking pictures on my BB way more convenient than using a camera. Editing them on the phone would be a super bonus.

SD619

Nice! I would appreciate this cool app!!!

Atakan

Because I live the moment, I wanna make those moments immortal.

Graheem

I too would love a copy. Looks like a winner of an app. But you know, it's on $2 bux, so if I don't win, I think this looks it might the second app I would by for my BB (I have only 1 paid app as it stands).

thatMikeguy

Considering how much I use the camera on my 9900 this would be an awesome asset. Looking forward to a W.

SummersLastNight

I have a vintage handlebar moustache for Movember that requires vintage photo effects. This could solve that :)

eric4966

As a university student, I'm always on the go and I've found that some of the best pictures I've ever taken were taken on my phone at the most unexpected times. I used to own an iPhone and Instagram sufficed for my photo editing needs, but ever since switching to my new 9900 I haven't been able to find an app that quite replicates that vintage Instagram look. I love sharing my photos on Facebook for all my friends to see and I would love to be able to "vintage-ize" some of the amazing photos that I've taken on my 9900 so far and share them!!

sofakingcdn

I absolutely would love a copy

Jason Starks

if I win this, I can tell all my iphone having friends to take their shoes & kick rocks with no socks. Screw you instagram!
