For a long time, Instagram held the top pedestal for a photo app, but unlike Instagram, Retrica applies different filters to photos even in real time. This means you can view a photo's appearance before you even snap the picture. How cool is that? Combing over the options with Retrica, you have over 80 filters to choose from in a variety of styles. You can locate filters with black and white tones, sepia tones, muted tones and more. The flexible filter design ensures appeal for almost every individual taste.

Along with the usual pics, you can also blend photos together for a collage with the click of a button. You can craft up a collage in different styles: First, you can snap together a few single pictures, or you can incorporate nine consecutive photos to build up a fun and interesting composition. With Retrica, you also take advantage of artificial shading, and you can use the timer to snap photos from a tripod.

Since its development, Retrica triumphed as the go-to picture app for the iOS. It soon became the point of reference, and you can now install this app for the Android where it offers some valuable and free features. Since the app started with the collage feature, Instagram followed up with its own collage-creation feature to keep pace with this competitive rival. Considering Instagram's status, it feels somewhat odd they took hints from a smaller company. Because you work exclusively with local files, you don't need to register or log in to get started.


  • 80 filters and a variety of styles
  • Unleash your creative genius with two different collage styles
  • Many of the features don't cost anything


  • Stretched pictures make the camera look terrible

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_PRIVILEGED: Allows applications to pair bluetooth devices without user interaction, and to allow or disallow phonebook access or message access. This is not available to third party applications.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • android.permission.READ_PROFILE
