One-click to awesome!

Tried it in “portrait” mode on a portrait photo in my camera roll (on large iPad Pro). One click blurred the background and added a nice bokeh effect—all automatically. Couldn’t be simpler!

camera mode not fully functional yet

update: developer was very responsive to my issue with the camera mode in the initial release. all buttons become available when you change your display setting to “standard” instead of “zoomed.” first update resolved this issue.

this app has 2 “modes” - editing and camera mode. the camera mode does not allow you to save pictures to your camera roll, but is useful if you’re simply trying to see what the dual camera “sees” and roughly how it is analyzing depth information. if you press the shutter button to take a picture, you can see a preview/capture of both the “real” photo and “depth” photo, but then have to force quit the app to get back to the camera or editing mode.

regarding editing mode: for “portrait” mode photos taken when i had iOS 10, this is just a normal editing app that has some very sleek film filters. i came here to vent about this, but then snapped a quick portrait mode photo on my updated device and found that it does do what it says it does... for “portrait” mode photos taken with my updated iOS device, additional options to select depth of field and apply blur only to the selected area become available. i’ll have to play more and see what it can do.

Love this app but would love more precision

This is app is fantastic for taking portrait mode photos or editing ones taken with the native camera app, however, they are times that there are areas with no blur, for instance between fingers or through a hole in the object. Being able to manually paint in the mask to add a blur to these areas would be great. Other than that, great app.
