PicsArt for Windows Phone snags new interface, tools, and effects in latest update [Update]

Update 2: The PicsArt app is now back in the Windows Phone Store.

Update: The app has been pulled from the store as it apparently is crashing when users try to open it. We will update this post when it goes live again

Along with the refreshed interface, PicsArt users can now import images from Instagram and touch up their images with a number of new tools and effects.

Here's the breakdown of what's new in PicsArt for Windows Phone:

  • New Interface -Import Instagram
  • Import PicsArt #FREETOEDIT pics
  • Curves Tool
  • Enhance
  • Motion Tool
  • New Effects
  • Effect Draw,
  • Mask Draw
  • Repost
  • Landscape orientation

As you can see from the screenshots above, the new interface looks quite a bit cleaner than before. The refreshed UI features a new white icon for the ever-present logo in the upper-left corner and uniform tiles for accessing different features of the app.

Overall, this looks to be a pretty nice update to one of our favorite photo editing apps on Windows Phone. If you'd like to snag the update for yourself, you can hit up the store link below to get started. There's no word if the Windows 8.1 app will get the same treatment, though we will keep an eye out in case it does.
