    "Prisma is an acceptable solution for those looking to make art from their photos on the various Apple platforms. There are numerous interesting filters and the product is easy to use without much instruction. Unfortunately, the application is not always stable and tends to crash in the middle of your work, which can be pretty frustrating. All in all, it's still worth looking at though."
