What’s better than an Australian mobile developer?
An Australian mobile developer with raw, undefinable talent.
Let me introduce you to the team at Play This! Studios, who have truly outdone themselves with their latest app, Meld, a uniquely creative layering app that allows users to let their imagination run wild.
Whether you’re already a creative person, or (much like me) are trying your hardest to unlock that artistic ability that you know is hidden away somewhere deep inside, you’ll instantly be drawn to the intuitive user interface that allows users to only be limited by their imaginations and creativity. Mobile users can download Meld from both the iTunes and Google Play app stores, and unlike many of the other apps featured in this same category of “Photography & Videos” in both, you’re not stuck with choosing an app that looks like it was either designed for children or one only a rocket scientist could navigate. The guys at Play This! Studios have not compromised the integrity of the app for simplicity of use, however, meaning you’re still receiving impeccable design quality with an easy to use interface.
There’s too many great features to jam them all into this article, but users will be happy to know that you’ll have access to all of the following features (plus many, many more):
- Image adjustment tools (including visibility, contrast, saturation, brightness etc.)
- Non-destructive editing and compositing capabilities
- Multi-layer Blending (Multiple, Screen, Exclusion etc.)
- Mask Brushing (Resizable hard & soft brushes and zoom right in for accurately masking of areas)
The monetisation strategy for the game is P2P, which means once you’ve popped that small fee of $2.99 into your iTunes account, you’ve unlocked a world of endless downloadable overlay packs from a talented creative team and the chance to create something truly original that you can share with the world.
The app already has a strong following on social media, with many users sharing their creations on Instagram under #madewithmeld, which has also proven to be a great source of inspiration for many. While it’s not a newbie to the app stores, with a 4+ rating from both iOS and Android users, Meld is definitely one app to watch in 2015.
