Best update so far.

Replacing hours in front of LightRoom, this app is perfect for adding emotion to your instagram images and videos.

New update=less filters

This has been my go to editing app for the last couple of years. Unfortunately this latest update ruined it. Frames, textures, lights, space etc are all gone. Those things made this app stand out from so many others. I had a paid version but can't restore any of those purchases because they no longer exist. Please bring back the older content and go back to standing out from the crowd instead of blending in with every other dull editing app.

I used to use this app in conjunction with a few others, but I have to say the latest update is a major disappointment.
Everything I used it for is gone; textural overlays, maybe the occasional tone inversion and filters that were a bit different from the standard. What a shame that there's no reason for me to keep this app (that I PAID for) anymore.
