What’s New In V. 2?



Percolator 2.0 is a substantial upgrade to the popular circle-based mosaic photo app and expands the possibilities for “percolation” in many exciting directions. Now a Universal app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, Percolator 2.0 sports finer control, new effects, and shorter percolation time for better images, faster.


Percolator’s elegant, retro-inspired user interface has been given extra attention, showing several innovations & refinements:

New Grind, Brew, and Serve controls are cleverly hidden away until they’re needed, keeping the unique dial- based user interface as streamlined as possible on both iPhone and iPad screens. These new dials give the user extra control over detail, transparency, color and texture. New filters and effects, like Treble, Superstar, and Steepia, and textures ranging from Paper Cup to Clouds, extend the creative possibilities.



Watching your photos brew just got more animated with new visual effects that reveal the percolated image—as circles bubble and boil up, they transform into the final image with a flourish.

Percolator 2.0 now features in-app sharing through Twitter, Facebook, and email. Each image created by Percolator contains a metadata string with a human-readable description of the recipe. This string is honored by iPhoto and Flickr, so users can remember and share the settings of their favorite percolations.
