Best. App. Ever.
I don’t usually review apps but this one is just too good to not review. The options you have are beyond amazing for what it is meant to do. There isn’t any annoying ads and unlike many other apps, it doesn’t give you an annoying watermark, even if you don’t have the pro version. Also in comparison, while I’ve noticed a lot of other apps give you VERY limited options on what you can do without their pro version, this app seems very fair and balanced and gives quite the amount of options for a free app. And if you decide to buy the pro version, it’s not outrageously priced and very affordable. Overall, I cannot stop gushing about this app and it’s very rare that I feel the developers of an app are putting thought and care into what they are producing and their consumers’ opinions, but this app blows that out of the water. Anyways, it is a great app and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about downloading it. Not only does it do what it’s made to do, but goes above and beyond.
If you are paying it leaves something to be desired
As a free app this is great. There is actually decent content and the fact there is no watermark or ads is wonderful. However I recently decided to pay for the app so I could use it to make graphics and there is a lot to be desired. The navigation is not super clean, there are sometimes glitches, etc. There’s no way to restore purchases, so since I got the paid version on my iPad i can’t seem to access any of that content on my phone. The one thing that I think i wish this app had the most is the ability to save and re-edit my designs. So for example, if I am making multiple graphics and need to change one thing on each one, I can’t go back in and re-edit a design. A lot of other similar platforms (even free ones) for graphic design have this capability so I’m wondering why this one doesn’t. Overall though I like the text fonts, and preloaded drawings/images, and since I am not artistic and can’t doodle things like that on my own this is very helpful. I hope they will update and add the feature of re-editing files (even if it is just for premium users) so that this is a more robust graphic design platform.
Developer Response ,
Hi! Thank you so much for such great feedback. We love to hear what users think would be helpful in future versions of the app, so we are so appreciative of that and will definitely be taking those suggestions into consideration. 💛 As for accessing your purchases/subscription on your phone, as long as you are using the same Apple ID for both devices, you definitely should be able to access those! You can do that by following these steps: Open a photo in the app + tap the shop button + scroll down to the bottom of the page + tap 'restore purchases'. Please feel free to reach out to acolorstory.com/support if you have any issues or concerns!
I love A Design Kit! I think you guys really nailed what you were trying to do with A Beautiful Mess app back in the day, and in a time when people are ready for it! The brush design color options are super cool, I love the backgrounds option, and the story crop size really nailed it! Just what I’ve been looking for to really take the stories function on instagram to another level. I also love the back and forth functionality with A Color Story! It could be a little smoother but it’s worked fine for me so far, just have to be a little patient.
I do think it would be very cool if you could save your drawing as a sticker for future use, kind of like the filter save function on A Color Story, but like I said overall this is an awesome addition to my photo editing app collection! Thanks!
Update: thank you for listening to your users and adding so many useful updates! I especially love the duplication button!!!
