Oh ColorSplash, by far one of our all time favorite apps. What this app does is take a picture that you either load into the app or take with the app's native camera feature, turn it black and white, and using your finger and various pinching and moving gestures, allows you to select which parts of the picture you want to remain in color. This app not only works, but works well. Its easy, fun and fast. Vince and I have taken so many regular pictures and made them into absolute works of art! Once you get the hang of the controls, navigating around becomes uber easy. At the bottom of the screen there are three icons. The first lets you navigate through the picture, whether its panning the picture or zooming in down to the smallest pixels to get the exact colors you want. The second icon is the color icon. This is used for selecting which parts of the picture you want colored. And the last being the grey icon. This grays any part of the picture you touch. At the top there is a switch that shows you exactly what is colored by making everything that is colored red. Another really useful feature is the ability to save sessions that you are working on, close the app, then be able to come back later and start right where you left off. Everything about this app is simplistic and easy to use. It's just made to work, which is such a rarity in most iPhone apps these days (jeez, I'm an old-timer). $1.99 in the App Store and so worth it.
