What is Prisma App? Apps Like Prisma for Android

My Facebook feed is full of only two things nowadays, Pokemon Go and Prisma. Where Pokemon Go is an awesome location based augmented reality mobile game, Prisma is an image editing app that transforms your photos into awesome artworks.

You can look at the photo below that shows original and Artwork view of the photo.

This is just one example; there are more modern art filters and photo effects available that you can use for transforming your photos.

The sad part is that Prisma is available only for iOS for the time being. However, its Android version will be launching soon hopefully.

Until the Android version comes up, why not try out some other apps like Prisma for Android?

Yes, there are many apps that are somehow (not exactly) like Prisma, and the good thing is they are available for Android.

Below is the list of 4 apps like Prisma for Android

1. SuperPhoto

When It comes to apps like Prisma for Android, I would recommend SuperPhoto as there many different artistic effects and filters available.

The full version of this app boasts 1500+ effects and filters, and the quality is full HD. It uses your gallery, camera, and FB photos. So you can choose any option to input an image to turn into some artistic look.

Though I am not good in selecting filters and effects, I tried applying an effect on one of my photos and see the outcome below.

Like Prisma, you get the best artistic effects in SuperPhoto, but you also get some of the sample photos from the community which effect you can apply on your photos.

There are options to set the output image size, intensity and smoothness. The processing speed is what people complain about as I read on Google Play. When I tried this, yes it does take a little longer time to apply the effect I selected.

2. PicsArt

PicsArt claims to be the number one photo editing app with more than 300 million installs. This is a full-fledged photo editor app. But, it also boasts customizable filters and effects that you can apply to your photos.

I tried one with PicsArt too. See how my photo looks after adding an effect.

You can see, the effects listed on the left side, just select anyone of them, and you will see options at the bottom as you can see in the above screenshot. Just select any of them to apply.

I found the processing speed of PicsArt is quite fast, and that is the best thing about it. This is a must have app if you need to edit or add filters to your photos.

PicsArt includes Artistic brushes, generating gif and videos, hundreds of photo editing tools, collage maker, and much more stuff.

This is the best alternative to Prisma. However, Prisma mainly focuses on adding effects and filter. But, PicsArt is much more than that. Prisma’s effects and artistic filters are more advanced though.

3. Photo Lab

I liked the face Montages, Celebrity collage, and new reality options in it. However, it has artistic effects available like Prisma as well.


You can see in the above screenshot that Photo Lab also has some cool artistic effects like charcoal drawing, Antique Oil Painting, etc. Though it is a good app like Prisma for Android, its artistic effects cannot compete with Prisma’s effects. But, meanwhile Prisma is not on Android, you may try this. However, Photo Lab is best known for face montages.

4. Pikazo

A good app to turn photos into the various artworks. Select an effect, choose your photo and your photo will be converted to that artwork.


Again, it cannot match Prisma’s quality, but you can use it until Prisma is not on Android.

Final Words

Prisma is a great app that everyone wants to use. But as you know it is currently available for iOS only, and if you are an Android user, you must have to wait for its Android version’s launch.

Meanwhile, why not try these 4 apps mentioned above that may give you a feel of Prisma Somehow. But to be honest, Prisma’s quality is above par, and these apps cannot compete as far as Artistic Effects are concerned. But, yes they are good to use.

Are you too waiting for Prisma’s Android version?

Try these for now!

    Of late, everyone tries to pose for a selfie and it’s in-vogue. This ubiquitous nature of humans is minting money for Prisma App. The Photo editing app for Android and iOS based iPad/iPhone comes with beautiful and unique filters. Though, you download and install prisma for android/iPhone and try it, and gets annoyed with “overcapacity problem”. Each time, try to Prisma-size a photo, the photo gets uploaded to the app’s server. Filters are then applied using Artificial Intelligence. Millions of users are facing time-out and freezing issues with Prisma. So what we have to do?
