Best photo editor in the world

I’m now subscribing premium of this app, probably the best photo editing tool I’ve ever used in my life. I tried picsart, photo editor, vsco, none of them gave me such an experience like Photodirector did. Not only easy to learn, the photo effects are awesome and quite easy to use. I used this app to tune every picture I took, and even make the family photos with the frames it provided. You only need one tap to add stunning animate fx to your memory. It’s lots of fun. I love Photo Director and recommend it while you’re searching for a great photo editor. Try it and you won’t be regret.

Rip off

Some friends told me to try this app. I am a single mom of 3 small kiddos and I thought it would be fun to try different thing with their photos. I tried the 3 free trail to see if it was worth it. I tried this one and one other one app just like for a day. I decided not to move forwards and went into my iPhone to canceled both subscriptions the next day. For the last two days this app has been trying to take money out of my account and they eventually did altogether equaling $50. I tried to look into as much as I could. I couldn’t understand why they took the money, when I canceled it after the first day. In order to try to get the funds back they would have to put a hold on my card to investigate and I just don’t have any other resources for payment besides my bank card, and I can’t afford that either. So I hope this is a warning to anyone trying this app. I would not recommend.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, we won't charge users without permission. According to Apple policy, supposedly you won't be charged if the free trial is canceled at least 24 hours before it ends. Please refer to Apple Support's page ("How to cancel a subscription from Apple" and find out how to cancel the subscription.

If there is any concern about the refund, since Apple doesn't allow app developers to refund or manage users' subscriptions, we suggest you contact Apple support for further help ("Request a refund for apps or content that you bought from Apple"
