FirstCamera makes it easy for young children to be creative as they take pictures on their parent’s iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. This app has a fantastically simple, kid-friendly design. The giant camera button is perfect for little fingers; my three year old is able to take pictures without my help! Once your child has snapped a picture to their liking, they have the ability to unleash their creative sides. With FirstCamera, children can select the magic wand to apply various special effects to their photo. Kids can also draw on their photos with a paintbrush tool that offers sixteen different colors to choose from (an eraser is also available). Special sticker icons and speech bubbles can also be added to photos for a fun effect. My daughter’s favorite thing to add to her photos are the silly face accessories (hats, glasses, and mustaches) that are included in the app. All of the various effects that your child can add to their photos will keep them happily entertained while they are being creative.
After your little one has expressed their creativity, their masterpieces can then be saved. What is so great about this app from a parent’s perspective is that the photos are not saved to your device’s camera roll but to the app itself. This keeps your camera roll safe from being overrun with images of things that your kids want saved but you may necessary not want. This is a handy app that keeps both kids and parents happy. Help inspire the next generation of photographers with FirstCamera.
