Looking for Twitter takeaways focused on iOS special effects apps? You have come to the right place. Apple’s iOS devices offer incredible apps you can carry around with you on your mobile device. This list expands on a previous blog entry, iOS Movie Effects, that I wrote back in 2016. Here are a few that awesome Twitterers have shared more recently.
#1 – Add Holograms to Real Life
The Holo app (@thisisholo), which John Bimmerle (@j_bimmerle) introduced me to brings virtual reality alive. Put a hologram of a favorite character (300 characters/animal holograms to choose from) into the world around you as if they were there. The holograms are life-size. You can resize, rotate, and move holograms to set things up.
“Holo High School Musical”. ???? can you tell which ones are the holograms and which are the real people?! #holoapp #ARkit pic.twitter.com/zSBS32ACjA

#2 – Create Looping Mini Videos
Boomerang from Instagram (@boomerangfromIG) enables you to create engaging mini videos that loop back and forth. Find a person or object that is moving; then Boomerang will take a burst of ten photos, looping them into a short video. You can share your creation via Facebook, Instagram, or to your iOS camera roll.

#3 – Show Off Your Super Powers
Try Super Powers FX – Superpowers (@superpowerfx). This app makes it a cinch to shoot lightning/fireballs from your hands, “lasers from your eyes, or control the elements, teleport, and more!” Zap those veggies.
