Editors' Notes

Plenty of photo-editing apps come with filters, but Polarr can help you create your own. And you don’t need the eye of a professional photographer, either. Thanks to instinctive touch controls and a ton of built-in filters to use as jumping-off points, it’s simple to tweak your images to get the perfect balance of colour and light. For the shutterbug pros, Polarr goes deep and allows fine adjustments to saturation, lens distortion and a whole lot of other settings that we dabblers just pretend to understand.

I’ve tried several apps, this one is the best.

App for photography is really based on personal needs. Personally I am not a professional photographer like those in National Geography magazines.

Photoshoot is just my hobby and learn over time with my NIKON F4, NIKON D90 and now my iPhone 7. I always edit most photo to correct some lightning, noises and HDR (manually). Adobe Lightroom is my favourite on my desktop PC/MAC but these days, I am mobile and I don’t really spend as much time sitting at home edit photo.

I need something on the go, there is Adobe Lightroom app on iOS but I really do not feel and justify enough to pay $10 USD monthly subscription. It sucks Adobe kill of all the standalone applications.

Polarr is my saviour, $30 USD unlock all on iOS app sounds expensive but it is still better than paying monthly or a insane triple digits price applications. I know they can do so much more than a $30 app but again like I said at the beginning, base on what I need.

Polarr is fantastic, works well with my workspace NIKON SD card lightning dongle import to my iPhone 7 then edit on Polarr. For the moment JPG mode is the only way until Polarr improve support on NEF RAW files.

I’ve read up some review, not a cash cow app. It is buy what you need and what you get. You can pay for all tools except filters if you never going to use filters since you can do them manually with the tools. This is options for people, you are not forced to pay full $30 unlock all price unless you want to support the dev.

Love it... when it works.

I have been a long time subscriber of Polarr, and think it is an amazing app for editing and creating filters but for the past two months, I can only use it for about 15 seconds before it freezes and crashes. Contacted support multiple times. The most recent update actually helped for about a day. Now it’s back to doing what it did before. I am forced to cancel my subscription.
