A retro computing / pixel art camera app.
Retrospecs lets you convert/capture images so that they appear as they would on a variety of home computers and consoles from the 70's, 80's and 90's.
Simply take a picture (or select one from your photo library) and you can display it as it would appear on a wide variety of computers and consoles from the 80's and 90's. The full version of the app contains over forty "emulated" systems including the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, IBM PC (DOS, CGA, EGA and VGA), Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Mega Drive, Nintendo Game Boy and even the original 1984 model Apple Macintosh. If that's not enough you can also create your own custom systems based around different graphics engines, capabilities and colour palettes. (The free version only contains a limited number of systems, dithers modes and the custom emulation editor is unavailable.)
To best present your blocky masterpieces, you can tweak each image using a selection of dither patterns and image enhancements. Once you're done, share your images with friends and foes alike. Or just keep them to yourself.

What's He Building In There?
Retrospecs has (finally) been updated to make use of In-App Purchases. As such, it's now possible for new users to try out a limited version of Retrospecs for free!
N.B.: If you previously paid for Retrospecs you'll always be able to unlock the full feature set using the "Restore purchases" option.
All that aside...
• Added "Hopeless" and "Mega Ran - Church" custom palettes.
• Added additional fonts ("Corpse State", "Creature Bag", "Necromancy", "Takes Ages" & "Totality") to the custom emulation editor.
• Fixed issue with the character engine where no background colour was being set.
• Fixed issue where the Custom system icon wasn't appearing in the converter.
• Fixed issue in attribute engine relating to shared colour handling.
