All about Apps

I want to use PhotoFunia on my mobile, do you have an app?
We certainly do. Our goal to make PhotoFunia accessible to everyone, no matter what mobile device they are using. Currently we have apps for the following platforms

We are constantly striving to add apps to new and emerging platforms. If your device is not supported, please drop us a line and we will see if we can sort it out.

Why do you need internet connection? I would like to use the app offline.
Think of PhotoFunia as Facebook or Wikipedia, you do need an internet connection to read latest news of your friends or to find out the speed at which particles are colliding in Large Hadron Collider. PhotoFunia is an ever-growing online library of photo effects and uses it's remote servers to do all the hard work of image manipulation. This enables us to continuously introduce new effects without ever having to update actual app and being limited with processing power of the mobile device. Besides, having hundreds of effects offline would take gigabytes of free space on your device.

I could not find the app for my phone, how do I know if you support it?
Technology is rapidly changing at all times! Every year new devices are being introduced, while others are dying out, failing to impress the consumer. Similarly, PhotoFunia is an ever evolving project where we aim to be at the cutting-edge of technological progress, by releasing apps on the most popular devices at times even before they’re launched. Unfortunately, while we do our best, it is not always possible to support every single device out there. However, we do offer number of mobile versions of our website, for all sorts of mobile devices.

Some pictures come out blurry, is it something I did?
Your pictures could appear blurry when using cellular (4G, 3G, EDGE or GPS) networks. Mobile network operators often compress images sent over their network before delivering them on to your device. This helps them to decrease the amount of traffic transferred and as a result save money. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about. We recommend using WiFi where possible at all times to ensure high quality pictures.


Having problems with the effects?

PhotoFunia says it could not detect a face, but it is definitely there!
Face detection is performed by tiny special robots and while they are clever little things they are still learning and may at times find it difficult to detect dark or very bright photos or pictures with faces turned. However, they do a superb job with well lit faces at lighting fast speeds! Just think of your passport picture.

It says that my image is in the wrong file format
We support all major image formats including jpg, png and gif. Please ensure that your picture is in one of the supported format.
