No matter how far technology advances, people always seem to pine for the touches of previous iterations, and the Bricks app is a tool that allows people to reach back in time with their modern devices. The app is a photo filter that turns the iPhone's excellent native camera into a facsimile of the earliest days of digital photography.

The Bricks app is simple to use, replacing one's typical camera app in the viewfinder to let iPhone photographers compose their pixelated images in real time. The app essentially reduces images to artfully low resolution versions of the subjects in question, limiting itself to a significantly reduced pixel count and color spectrum. And if the number of pixels is too many or too few, the app has settings for changing that.
