Over the years smartphones slowly replaced the point and shoot cameras we used to carry around, more like schlep as some of them were heavy, to capture those beautiful, poignant, and memorable events in our life. Then applications came along to edit and modify those images to create something enduring.

We've discussed quite a few photo editing apps over the years, most recently in the top photo editing applications for BlackBerry 10, and one that stood out for me is Effetica Pro. This full featured photo-editing application offers an array of filters, themes, frames, overlays, and tools to ensure you get the most out of your images to share with friends, family, and followers.

Regularly priced at $3.99, the developer is celebrating the one-year anniversary of Effetica's initial release in BlackBerry World by giving away 100 free copies. While the application incorporated several important and useful features since it was first released, you can read the original review or test drive the limited free version.

To grab your free copy of Effetica (while supplies last) here's the drill:

  • Launch BlackBerry World
  • Swipe down from the top and tap on Redeem
  • Enter the following promo code: EFFETICA1YEAR
  • The application should now show as free. Tap on the button to download

The code itself expires on Thursday, though I'm betting they will be gone in the blink of an eye. You can purchase the application by clicking on the link below and it supports all BlackBerry 10 devices
