Black screen

Latest update sometimes go to a black screen when using. Do not know how to get it unstuck except waiting a long time.

This is a great free extension for the iOS native photo editor, presenting nice image effects. However, it'd be great if the app showed the option to Save As upon finishing edition, instead of replacing the original picture right away. Additionally, the unnecessary app icon should be hidden from the home screen.

Can’t review it if I can’t even access it

—Open app
—Read obvious instructions
—Try to follow obvious instructions, but there instructions do not tell you what the hell to do when then aren’t any freaking icons to allow you to access photos.
—Best of all, the support page is dead.

Probably a case of completely irresponsible programmer or whatever growing bored with the app and abandoning it...without the courtesy of letting you know (but still accepting money for their worthless app).
