If you’re looking for an android app that can record videos with special effects (one which you apply to a photo), look no further than the VideoCam Illusion android app, whose Free version is quite feature rich and great but the paid version, costing $2.73, is one beast of an app!
There have been a lot of photo editor apps that would let you tweak a photo in variety of ways, but when it comes to tweaking a video or indeed, recording a video in a different mode than normal, there are not too many apps available to us right now. As far as we know (and also as per developer’s claims), Videocam Illusion is the only android app with which you can record a video with special effects. And boy, there are too many options to play with even in the Free version — which is a solid hint that this app is gonna become a must have and favorite and one of the most regular app of yours, us, and other users.
