Now, let’s discuss how this app  is engaging users with it’s qualities:

Quicker, easier and simple:

This app reminds me of Instagram at the first place. Prisma is pretty simple with a basic interface that keeps user focused on taking pictures, applying the filters, and then sharing on Twitter or Facebook. It avoids cluttering things up with a tons of different options.

When user starts  Prisma, this photo app asks for access to  camera and user’s photo galleries. He doesn’t has to grant access to the camera, as he can edit saved pictures from the gallery, but it’s obviously much quicker and easier to take a picture and edit it directly.

All new filters:

There are a dozens of new filters, all based on famous paintings. Edvard Munch’s The Scream is a filter, and there’s another filter called Mondrian, for Piet Mondrian. Other filters are based on  Picasso, Van Gogh, and Levitan.  These seems like old wine in new bottle, however, these filters are bringing  selfies to life.
