PERFECT for Instagram filters and photo editing.

The newest update removed a lot of the bugs it had for several years. The new design is excellent, also. If you want custom filters, fantastic grain effects, and a simple way to edit photos, this is the perfect app for you. Paying to use its advanced features seems worth it to me at least. There’s not much to complain about if you’re using this to simply touch up photos and give them a neat aesthetic. Love the app! Thanks developers for listening to complaints !!!!

I was upset when the developers changed the layout with a sleeker design, which didn’t have labels and a confusing UI that centered (literally) around paying. After complaints piled up, the developers did an excellent job compromising between their old design and the new format, with a friendlier design that works nicely with custom filters. I hadn’t used the overlay feature before, but I do agree that making it available to purchase after years of having it for free is a little weird.

Gets better every time!!!

So far I have noticed a MAJOR improvement from the previous version I tried. Almost all glitches have been fixed. Thanks. Really enjoying it now.

Glitches on the iPhone 6plus.
The filters are decent with plenty of options but it's glitchy in the iPhone 6 plus. It's very hard to swipe left or right between options and the side window always tries to open when I swipe left. This is consistently happening whenever I try to change any option and it's very annoying making the app pretty useless. It might take three or four swipes before the option bar finally moved a little.

I also don't like how it doesn't allow you to choose photos from your Favorites folder. This is seriously a big NONO for me since those are the images I care to edit.

Not impressed and I'm glad I tried it but it's no where near snapseed for editing the image or VSCOcam for filters or my new favorite fotograf. If they can only fix those two features I would gladly give it another try. For now it's a no for me.

Leak color & opacity controls do not work.

There are still I want to be concise about the one that is the most bothersome. When you apply a leak overlay, you CANNOT modify both the opacity and color, each time you switch to the other adjustment tab, it resets the other. For example, if I apply a leak, the opacity is automatically at 80, so adjust it to 50, and go to the color adjustment, immediately the opacity is reset to 80. Conversely, if I adjust the color first, going to adjust the opacity resets the color to the default position. You cannot even apply the filter with one correct setting, and pull down the filter history panel to go back and edit the leak for the other setting, color/opacity, because this causes even more bugs to spark, like the image saving without the filter applied at all, even though you can see it applied in the interface editing display. Between this and the other bugs, as well as the fact that my past purchases $$ were rendered a waste with the UI overhaul I have not been very happy about this app :(
