The best photoshop app for phones I've seen by a long shot
I've been looking for a good, reliable, and simple app to use for graphic design or to just mess around. The full version for this app is worth what it charges. If you're confused about how to use it, they already have little videos to let you see how it can be used. And I have not experienced any bugs, crashes, glitches, or any inconveniences whatsoever. So I give this app 5/5.
This app is still really great, but I’ve experienced a few minor issues and have some suggestions.
1. All my old designs that I once had started losing their original shape and I had no way to fix it, so I ended up deleting all my designs. I tried reinstalling the app but it didn’t give me back the designs.
1. Allow users to color specific parts of text instead of the whole text itself.
2. Create default dimension set ups (like the dimensions to design an album artwork for a band, or a movie poster.)
Other than that, this app is still top-notch.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the update. Regarding: 'All my old designs that I once had, started losing their original shape'. I'm sorry to hear this. What do you mean by 'original shape'... the background canvas size changed? We haven't had reports of an issue like this, but it sounds like it might be fixable. In the future, you should definitely email so that we can help find a solution: email@example.com In the latest update, you now have the ability to upload whole editable projects to iCloud. We recommend backing up important projects there, in case there are future issues with the app, or loss of device etc.
Regarding adding predefined canvas sizes for posters and record labels... there are a huge array of different sizes and formats that might be useful to different people, instead of adding all these options to the canvas size selector, we are planning to add the ability to create your own custom canvas sizes.
Love the app, just need one thing...
I’m all about this app! Everything works great and looks amazing. I just wish there was a way to transfer in different fonts from a pdf file.
I do the social media for a company that has its own specific fonts for branding, but there’s no way for me to add them to the app. A good example of an app that does this is the app “over”. It allows me to open the file in that app and it sticks in the library!
Is that a possible update?
Developer Response ,
Font import will be included in the next version. :)
Edit and keep transparent?
I'm engaged in looking for a way to obtain and keep a transparent background even after editing the subject- IOW, only remove the background once but try several edits to cartoons, watercolors, etc. Then I want to save as a scalable, vector file. This does all those but does it do all those together? Yes, I can dig in but how much do I have to pay? $2/month or what's this $7? Is that a one-time purchase for the same thing? I want to know before I dig in… manuals and clear explanations of charges are important and it's about time the app store starts including that information for every app. I've been buying and been frustrated by apps for 10 yrs.
Developer Response ,
Hi. I’m not sure what IOW is. Within CREATE you can reduce the opacity of a background color or gradient... you can make the background fully transparent. You cannot cut away to remove areas of a Photo. The $6.99 is a one time fee for all features, or the cheaper fee for a monthly subscription. There are instructions and videos in the help center within the app. Please email us for more detailed help: firstname.lastname@example.org
