Waterlogue – We’ve Got Promo Codes To Giveaway!

We announced the news of this brand new app from Tinrocket earlier this morning (GMT) and we’re delighted to say we now have promo codes to giveaway!

Waterlogue for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch transforms photos into spontaneous, unique, and brilliant watercolor sketches that look like real paintings.

“The idea behind Waterlogue is that we wanted non-artists to be able to see the world as an artist might—to give people access to a creative tool that doesn’t require any training,” says Balestrieri, founder of Tinrocket, LLC. “We were inspired by what creative people like artists and architects carry with them for visually documenting the world when on-the-go: things like Moleskine watercolor sketchbooks and these little homemade kits of watercolor pigments stowed inside repurposed Altoids tins. The spontaneous and personal nature of the images they create with these tools inspired Waterlogue”.

So, would you like one a free code? If you would please join our ever expanding Twitter followers and Facebook fans, RETWEET THIS POST and send a reply to the bottom of this page telling us what you love most about theappwhisperer.com.

Additional Information


The technology required to create authentic, real-feeling watercolor images from digital photographs took a year to perfect. “There are apps out there that apply a watercolor-type filter to images,” Balestrieri, who himself has a background in art and design, notes, “but they don’t really approach anything made by a person: they don’t replicate all of the little decisions that make a painting communicate the essence and spirit of a scene, instead of a straight depiction of reality.

It was really important to us that Waterlogue could faithfully execute this kind of visual perception in a convincing and compelling way.” The result is an app that can turn the most on-the-fly snapshot into a luminous, lively watercolor sketch. And it’s highly accessible: with a range of presets based on painting styles and materials, and several easy-to-use settings, there are a variety of ways to customize a Waterlogue image without getting lost in too many options. The user experience is fun, fast, and yields astounding results.

Balestrieri sees Waterlogue as a new way to experience photography: “We hope that people will take Waterlogue out into the world and use it to create unique, interpretive images of what they see.

  • Keith Thompson

    I paint professionally in both oils & watercolours as well as digitally using iphone, ipad & cintiq 21 monitor with stylus.
    I will use this app for both direct printing & as preliminary studies and sketches for much larger work. I have a large 24″ wide format printer, so it will be interesting to see what large files I can print with.

    Many thanks for such painstaking work to produce such a professional app.
