Repix turns smartphone snaps into finger-paint masterpieces (video)

Sepia, Polaroid, Vignetting... Sepia again. The realm of ironic picture-sharing services suffer from a lack of imagination on the filter front -- which is why everyone's snaps are shot with the same three tints. Repix, on the other hand, is an iOS app that wants to bring some creativity back to food pictures with a set of creative brushes that you can apply to the limits of your artistic talent. Rather than uniformly applying the effects, you finger paint them onto your original image. If you're familiar with iPad app Paper, then you'll already be comfortable with the UI and business model, with additional brushes setting you back $1.99 / £1.49 per set, or $4.99 / £3.99 for everything. If you'd like to see some more, erm, professional examples of what Repix can do, head past the break for a video.
