Databender is the first true glitch art app. Glitch art is the process in which a user manipulates data within an image or video. Databender allows users to carefully create glitch art with an easy-to-use interface. Databender offers a wide range of options, intricate or broad. Databender also features widely known effects such as sepia or posterize; the list goes on.

Notice: Databender not recommended on Iphone 3GS, 4, or 4S.

Features include:

- A glitch option, which is Databender's bread and butter. You can bend in either PNG or JPG format, creating an infinite number of outcomes for your image. Results are never the same.

- Our own set of swell effects, giving the user the ability to ripple the image data.

- A wide array of effects such as: noise, saturation, gloom, posterize, sepia, gamma, and pixellate.

- The ability to crop your image to your liking.

- Also with video capabilities, a feature unique to this app only.

- Share your images instantly through Facebook or Twitter.

- "I’ve toyed around with animating Decim8 images, but last week a new app called Databender finally made it’s way to the app store." - DocPop:


What's new in version 1.3
- Cropping has been simplified.

Hint: First, apply the swell effect. Second, rotate your image from in the crop tab. Third, run it back through the swell effect again.

- Bending just got even crazier with an all new swell effect variable.

- Still smashing those bugzzzz....

Happy Bending!
