Retrospecs is a photo and video editing app designed for Apple devices. It was developed by John Parker. The app allows you to covert them with different filters that make them appear as if they have been processed by home computers and consoles from the 70's, 80's and 90's. In this article, we discuss some of the app’s main features, as well as some additional information.

Key Features

Here are some of the Retrospecs’ main features:

  • Effects: the filters are inspired by over forty systems, such as: the Commodore 64, IBM PC (DOS, CGA, EGA, and VGA), Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Mega Drive, Nintendo Game Boy, the original 1984 model Apple Macintosh, to quote just a few.
  • Animation: there are over 10 animation effects that you can apply to still images.
  • Customize: if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, you should know that you can also create your own modes.
  • Interface: this app has a very user-friendly interface that makes it easy to handle.

How Does Retrospecs Work?

As we mentioned above, the app is very easy to use. Once you download and install the app, you simply have to take a picture or a video or choose one from your gallery. Next, you will be able to choose the system, the mode, the dither level, crop, or other options. If you want to know some tips on how to make your photos and videos even better, you can check the developer’s tips.
