You’ve Got to Check Out CameraBag’s Stunningly Fantastic Mac Beta



We absolutely love the CamerBag iOS app; some of us, including me, believe it to be the best photo filter app on the iPhone. But take a look at the free beta version of CamerBag 2 for Mac, the desktop version’s forthcoming update — because it takes things to a whole new level of awesomeness.

There’s some really great stuff here. I may be off here, but in addition to all the filters from the iOS version, I counted an incredible nine completely new filters, each one cooler than the last.

And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg. The interface has been revamped, and great little features, like the ability to modulate individual effects or even quickly turn them on or off, abound. Then there’s the interface. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any photo app quite as elegant or easy to use.

But hey, don’t take our word for it — the app just opened up to public beta, which means you can try the app for free. Developer Nevercenter says the app is very close to its final release version, and not much will change (indeed, everything seemed buttery smooth).

Seriously, grab this app now and start messing around with it. The beta will cease working when the final build is out. But If you like it, you can buy the original CameraBag now for $19 and they’ll give you version 2 for free — a great deal, because Nevercenter says version 2 will be more expensive when finally released sometime next month.
