Samsung is an interesting Windows Phone OEM and has shown support for Microsoft and its mobile platform, as well as proving to be distant enough to focus on its Android products. Today we've learnt of two new exclusive apps the company has released for its Windows Phone hardware. MangaCamera and Paper Artist are now available for those who own Samsung Windows Phones.
If you're not familiar with Samsung's offerings for Windows Phone, the OEM has the Samsung Zone available for its customers to check out exclusive content not accessible to all Windows Phone owners. With the two new apps released, what can you look for on the store? The two new offerings are image editors that offer unique and cool effects that can be applied to shots captured while on the go.
Both Paper Artist and MangaCamera require Windows Phone 8 and are only available for Samsung ATIV hardware.
As the images above suggest, MangaCamera is a new app from Samsung that turns photos into cartoons. If you're one who enjoys playing with filters to create cool cartoonish effects, this app is for you. The awesome part about MangaCamera is that frames are displayed real-time while you're looking at taking the perfect shot. Additional frames are also available for download to further personalise photos. It's also listed in the lens menu.
You can download MangaCamera from the Samsung Zone on the Windows Phone Store (version 220.127.116.11 - only listed for Windows Phone 8).
Paper Artist is a similar app to MangaCamera, but offers more filters to play around with. It's a fully featured image editor with live previews when taking shots. Art styles can be selected from the bottom menu, while photos can be imported or taken live with the previews. Once you've finished with playing around with the options, it's possible to save the image locally and share with social media and other accounts.
You can download Paper Artist from the Samsung Zone on the Windows Phone Store (version 1.4 .11.0 - only listed for Windows Phone 8).
