Prisma Finally Arrives on Android

...

The artificial intelligence-powered program transforms your images into works of digital art, using styles of famous artists.

But it appears the app's reputation precedes it, and only a day after hitting the Google Play store, Prisma was knocked offline. "Sorry for [the] inconvenience, hard time now," a Monday morning tweet said. "Soon will be live. Thank you for your patience."

There is no word on what caused the outage, but it's not hard to believe that an overload of new users trying to turn their selfies into a Rembrandt flooded the servers. As of press time, the app was working on the iPhone.

Prisma arrived on iOS last month, boasting deep-learning algorithms that contort pictures into the patterns of Edvard Munch, Roy Lichtenstein, Piet Mondrian, Hokusai (pictured), and more. Like Instagram, users can snap a new photo or choose an existing one and apply a filter. First-time users may find each filter takes 20-plus seconds to load, depending on your Internet connection. Slide your finger left or right over the image to increase or lessen the effect, then share the final product to social media sites or simply save it to your phone.

"A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art," the Google Play app description says.

On iOS, the app also got a boost on Sunday via an update that promises an "even faster, stronger" app and bug fixes. For more, see PCMag's review of Prisma for iPhone.
