Prisma - the app that Picassos your photos - has come out of beta and the full version is now available on Android. Not without a few hiccups, however.
First off, managing to install the correct app can be a challenge. It's this one - made by Prisma Labs, icons is black triangular outline. Just searching the Play Store for "Prisma" will return a million and one apps called Prisma with a triangle logo, but those are shady.
Even after you install the real app, you can't quite use it yet. We tried on several phones and it hangs. It seems that image processing is done server-side and said servers are experiencing a launch day overload.
I guess after the initial crowd thins out I can finally try the Prisma app and see turn my boring photos into 'art.'
Haha. How's that? prisma servers got down lol and people can't edit their pics to create art out of them. Lol. It would have been better if the editing was done offline.
This was a completely foreseeable issue, since Prisma processes your pics on servers (oh, and you also have to grant them a huge licence to use your images however they want. Uncomfortable, to say the least). And this is just for rendering in low-res...
Actually it cannot work offline. All processing is done in the cloud on the team’s server, rather than on the device. The server has something like three neural networks. So your device is not able to do it offline, the operations are too diffic...
