The BEST! Creative, User-friendly and Thoroughly Enjoyable to Use!

I’ve been using BeCasso for over a year now and absolutely love everything about it! I use the oil painting #’s 1, 2 & 3 on at least 3/4’s of my photos in varying degrees as a standard part of editing them as it can make them look more like oil paintings and watercolors. When I’m feeling more “artsy” I can literally get lost for hours experimenting with the endless options on this app. BeCasso both feeds and challenges the artist in me - which I love - and I’ve also been impressed by how user-friendly it is. And most importantly, the response to my enhanced photos and “art” on social media has been very rewarding!
Another huge benefit is that I’ve been able to turn what I would’ve considered throwaway photos into some really beautiful pieces as the oils in particular can soften the lines of slightly out of focus photos and fill in the graininess of others while also enhancing the color. I cannot say enough good things about this app and I definitely wouldn’t trade it for any app currently on the market. The developers are also quick to respond to any concerns and have recently added an impressive number of new oil, watercolor, pencil, cartoon and color options that have further enhanced my experience with this app. Another benefit? There is now a relatively new BeCasso group page where you can share your creations. Overall, this app exceeds a 5. I highly recommend it!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. It was our mistake to remove the classic oil paint and just provide the new one. With our last update (Version 2.6.2) we brought the old oil paint back. Beside that, we are happy to hear that you like the pencil styles.

Sorry again for removing the classic oils in the first run. We hope that BeCasso is a 5+ star app for you again and that you adjust your review :)

Best of the photo to art apps

I painstakingly went through every photo to art conversion app in the App Store. This company released BeCasso and ArtCard. I paid for both and pitted them against everything else out there: they are the clear winner.

First off, I eliminated any subscription based apps. There is no way for me to get a return on that kind of investment, and none of them appeared to do more than BeCasso. The rest of the apps always had shortcomings. For instance, after you use a filter to convert, you need additional controls for detail, relief, softness, intensity, etc. BeCasso had all that.

Last night I gave it the ultimate test and converted for about 6 hours of Hawaii iPhone pictures taken with the iPhone 10 Xs Max. Wow. Some of those pictures are now like masterpieces, and are not cheesy at all.

The comic watercolor and comic features also rivals or beats other apps that only focus on those features.

The only feature request I would have is to create a new app and merge their Clip2Comic, ArtCard, and BeCasso with all their filters and features. It would be worth $15-20 USD to me, and would certainly be a differentiator for any other app like this. I really just want one app that does it all for filtering affect. It could also cause more folks to leave the Adobe world. I think this company is close if they could pull it off.

Thanks to the developers for helping me create some wonderful works of art.

Developer Response ,

As already stated in our email conversion: Thank you very much for that positive and constructive feedback. That's the fuel that keeps us going.

Thank you very much!

I just don’t understand the worth of sending out updates that still don’t comply with the latest software support and aren’t maximizing support for new hardware!

Update, I read the developers response saying that they did update for iOS 11 in September and also Support the new iPhone X. The reason I mentioned this lack of support is that I went through and read every update listed here for the past 6 months and nowhere did the updates list these changes? So, is it that all the updates aren’t being shown here or what?

2nd update, I received your second developer response and it didn’t make any sense whatsoever. There’s thousands of apps for sale and download currently on the App Store that haven’t been updated since iOS 8. So to expect customers to just assume that a developer wouldn’t allow customers to download an app unless it met all current software and hardware updates is nonsensical. Maybe in the future to avoid confusion you should do as most all other developers do and clearly state in writing to your version updates exactly when you’ve updated to support the latest software and hardware instead of expecting customers to just assume you have just because it’s still available to download. I’m certain that all other users agree.

Developer Response ,

Dear Marcus,
we are completely with you. Updates should always improve the experience for a user.
Thus, we already supported iOS 11 directly after it has been released in September.
As you may have noticed, we support the iPhone X with regard to screen-space layout as well as hardware. This has been also implemented before iPhone X has been publicly available.

Since we are completely compliant with iOS 11 and all iPhone/iPads that support iOS 11 and CoreML, we are not sure what features you are desiring. It would be great, if you could write us an eMail with features you are currently missing.

Update: Thank you for your updated review. We mentioned the iOS 11 support in the release notes of version 2.0.0 and in its description. As we offer our app for the iPhone X, too, we didn’t think about mentioning the support for the iPhone X within the release notes—it just seemed clear to us that we wouldn’t let users download our app without supporting the phone. We hope that answers your questions.

2nd Update: Thank you. Yes, to avoid any further confusions, we will let users know in the future if we meet all current hardware updates, too. Thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoy BeCasso.
