Nice B/Ws, but has issues

I have been using this app off and on for over 6 years. It takes great black and white pictures. However, today there was an issue. I was using the app, took a handful of pictures, and the app froze my phone. I couldn’t close the app or restart my iphone. But after letting my iphone sit, it finally restarted itself. Today, before leaving a review, I see that this app’s last update was 4 years ago. Can you please have an update for any “bugs”? Also, as a request, making it capable to switch to the front facing camera (selfie mode)? Thanks.

Awesome app

I love this app simple and I used it for all the black and white photos I take now the only thing that I have trouble with is the button are a little bit to close together makes it hard for me to which one

iOS 11 broke it

Loved using this app until iOS 11. It will take one photo then locks up. Tried going to their website to see if there was an easy way to contact them. They do have their email support address there, but it is not a link. You have to copy it and go to your email client and paste and then write them and tell them of your troubles. Then you wait to see if they reply.... still waiting, 5 days and counting.
