I’m a huge fan of cute apps for the iphone and ipad! My ultimate favourite is the ‘Princess camera app.
There are of course plenty of free purikura decorating apps on itunes that are available for download. However I haven’t yet found one that’s really pretty! If you want really pretty and easy to use, something that’s very similar to those awesome Japanese style purikura booths then I recommend the ‘Princess Camera app’ for iphone.
Check out my screen shots! As you can see the interface is flowery and appropriately sparkly. I am a girly girl type of woman so this appeals to me.

Things I like about the Princess camera app
You can take photos directly from the app or you can work with existing photos in your library.
The princess camera app gives you the option of brightening your photos so you get that princess glow automatically! Sometimes it doesn’t quite work with dark photos but that’s more because the camera on the iphone can’t handle it!
You get a huge selection of different pens for writing (as you can see from my screen shot, it didn’t quite fit in the window) which is similar to the pen selections you can get in the purikura booths.
You also get a lot of cute backgrounds, frames and stamps to pick from. Again all girly, sparky and cute!
You can create stamps – I haven’t really used this option but sometimes I create stamps of already edited pics and it just makes the pictures look really awesome!
It’s a lot of fun making ridiculous pictures of your friends!!! You can see an example of my creation starring Daesung and Top (sadly they are not my friends)! Just an ordinary screen cap, add stars, add hearts, add rainbows, add rosy cheeks, hats and twinkly eyes and you get a fun collage to look at.
I don’t actually have any negatives for this app. Yes you have to pay for it but it’s not much! Check it out on itunes.
