The Bamboo Loop photo app adds a personalized touch to messaging; the ability to custom-edit and add photos.

Bamboo Loop allows users to create image messages that are similar to specialty-made cards. The user uploads a photo onto the app, goes through a series of editing features -- paper backgrounds, writing fonts, paint brushes and filters -- and then sends it to as many friends as they'd like. While the Bamboo Loop app might be sounding a lot like SnapChat, Bamboo is different in the sense that users can send back and forth the same image, called a 'loop,' and add to, re-edit and in a sense, carry a conversation entirely through one image.

While there are so many options to go through, Bamboo Loop is well-organized and lets the user go through each one individually in a clutter-free format. The simplicity of the app is great because it makes it seem like the user spent ages editing and customizing a photo, while in reality, it took less than a minute to put together.
