The iTunes store is rife with thousands of photo editing apps. But most of them, frankly, suck. The Mextures iPhone app offers more than 70 legitimately unique and very cool textures.

Tons of light leaks, gritty and grainy film textures, dusty vintage film scans, tasteful grunge, and gorgeous gradients. These textures are created from actual 35mm film scans from various cameras, and a multitude of other natural elements.

With 12 different blending modes, every new layer adds millions of possibilities to enhance your images and make them uniquely yours.

Huge bonus: non-destructive, layer-based editing. For non-Photoshop nerds, that means every edit is stored in its own layer, separate from the actual photographic data. So there’s no need to worry about “undoing” something you don’t like. Simply go back and edit the layer you want to change and viola! Plus, you can stack multiple effect layers for seriously trippy photos that feel straight of a dream.
