Worth the money

I’m not an aspiring photographer, I love photography and do it as a hobby and this app is more than perfect for me, the filters and little nik naks of this app really open up different windows into the editing process and make the photos that you've taken 10x better and more special to be able to put your own personal twist on them. I live it and Diego Roth recommend it for the money you pay. I bought the original app and this one is so much better than the other.

it's a really cool app ok ,

best photo editor

For a single purchase app, this is by far the most feature packed photo editor. There are tons of features to play around with and I prefer it to all the free photoshop apps and Snapseed which used to be my go to editing app. I hope in the future they add even more features, like different styles of merging where you can blend different sections of layers, and more touch tools. But the app is very worth the couple of quid that it costs.

Not fit for purpose on any iPad.

I visited App Store from my iPad, and saw that Afterlight 2 was featured on the front page as ‘App of The Day.’ With this in mind, I downloaded this app specifically for use my iPad Pro. So bearing in mind that I visited the App Store from my iPad and downloaded Afterlight 2 on my iPad, one would’ve expected Afterlight 2 to be a full iPad app. However, this app has not been optimised for any iPad model, including the iPad Pro I use, but uses a ported iPhone version. I find this to have been misleading as it was inferred that this was an iPad app, when it is clearly not. In practice, I have also found the app to be unusable with the reduced, poor screen renderings and for my purposes, Afterlight 2 on the iPad is of no use to me whatsoever.

Developer Response ,

Afterlight 2 has been updated to be fully compatible for iPads since December 2017, we hope you'll try it out again!
