The transition to the SDK went smoothly, the API is simple and clean, yet very powerful.
After having implemented a number of effects, I discovered that some filters didn’t work as expected.
Our app Sketch is now PicSketch with a new design and new features.
You can turn your photos into sketchs with a big library of assets to make a lot of combinations.
Go to the Windows Phone Store and don’t forget to rate the app.
