Famous photo-editing app Prisma that took internet when it was launched in June this year no longer requires net access as it has announced that an offline version for its iOS app with an Android version soon to follow.
Prisma, which has been downloaded more than 50 million times since its launch in June with 4 million daily users, initially required a speedy internet connection to apply its neural network powered art filters to a user’s pictures. Hence, those with slow or bad internet connections often face difficulty using the photo-editing app.

“Neural networks work great with sound and voices also, but we need to focus on what we have first,” Prisma Labs co-founder and chief executive Alexey Moiseenkov told VentureBeat in an email. “Initially the offline version of the app only operated with half of Prisma’s 30-odd filters,” Moiseenkov said.
The offline version also reduces the startup time of the app from one minute to 3 seconds.

Along with its offline version, Prisma announced its first Philanthropic filter. Partnered with Elbi, an app that crowdfunds charities and causes, it also said that an option is available to donate $1 for charities with its Love filter.
