Retrica App Review


Retrica is a mobile app for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone. It is a photography app that enables users to take photos and gives them many features to edit a photo.

The app is a full package that is photography, story-telling, and social media simultaneously, with features like location tagging, an intelligent filter, a camera with a zoom, and a timer. It also provides the ability to post the photo to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.

Some of the features that make Retrica a perfect choice for people are the Filters, Effects, Frames, Instant GIFs, Animated Stickers, and Retro-to-Modern Frames. Filters come with over 20 filters that users can choose for the photo they want to edit. Some filters are Lomo, Sepia, Tonal, Pop, Chrome, Red Palette, Grunge, and more. The Filters can be applied to the photo before or after the photo is taken. They can also be applied to the whole photo or a certain part of the photo.

Effects can be added to the photo with the different effects like Glow, Mosaic, Bleach bypass, Negative, and the contrast can also be adjusted.

Frames are easily available in the app as it comes with more than 30 frames. All the frames are organized into different categories. They have borders with retro, modern, black and white frames. There are so many frames with different styles that make it difficult for the users to choose one frame.

Instant GIFs provide the option to create GIFs with all the features of Retrica without taking a photo. With just 3 steps, the GIF can be created.

One of the features that help Retrica stand out from the other apps is Animated Stickers which can add a lot of life to the photo. The Animated Stickers can be applied to the photo or the story and can be found by scrolling down to the bottom of the app.

The last feature that Retrican provides is Retro-to-Modern Frames, which can turn any photo into a vintage style photo with just one tap. The menu includes many retro styles like the green tinge, black and white, and more.

    • I am in love with this camera app . One of friend recommended this app in 2016 and since day I didn’t use any other app for camera or filter. This is best.

    • I love Retrica but for the past couple of months it’s been acting crazy and the filters don’t work AT ALL. My version is up to date by the way. If this gets fixed I’ll change my rating but until then 👎

    • Excellent filter app! Very varied and trendy filters!!!

    • It’s a very good app. However I would like to record longer videos. Does the paid version allow that. Pls let me know what’s the difference between paid and free version.

    • I have been using this app so long but now its shut down it’s own and the pictures are not as clear as they were before……
