I sincerely love this app. It works so well, and fast. I was really worried there would be way too many editing tools of some kind and it would essentially be a way easier way for reposters to edit stolen art. I was so happy to be Proven wrong. It is literally just to doof around and put the images you need for a pose/ or piece down and i love it.

The only things i do wish it included are very superficial like the ability to scale and transform an image a bit more, but i do understand this was not added to probably avoid people accidentally using the wrong arrows and making it frustrating as well as maintaining resolution. And the other is that i do wish you could move projects around to either order them in some way or makes files to group them. This is so amazing to use though thank you so much for making it.

So glad someone finally did it right!

I was looking for an app like this just three days before it released and was using “collage” apps to be able to do what this wonderful app does.

The only thing I’d add is a lock button that still lets you pan/zoom around. Once I’ve arranged things it would be nice to not accidentally select them. The lock function right now just locks everything and doesn’t let you move around.

Not a big gripe and well worth the price. Kudos to the developers!

Glad we were able to fill your needs! Thank you so much for the kind words and feedback.

We are going to add a setting that disables image editing while still allowing panning and zooming! Most likely we will change the settings button we currently have to a cog, Then add a toggle button there to disable image editing. Look for this in the near future! We are slowly but surely patching in new content for current users.

Amazing App! Theres so much potential here.

As a freelance artist, this is an absolutely NEEDED app for me as i have a whole lot of references in Pinterest and Twitter. I dont download my references, but I tend to just retweet them or pin them in my account as an archive, but i ALWAYS hated switching between references. I dont download images for the sake of storage and keeping my photo gallery free of clutter.

If I were to make a recommendation; I would ask to include the drag and drop feature from not just the web, but from different app sources like Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter etc. This would really help us artists with a complete digital presence online!

Hello Jim, thank you for the support and feedback. We are really glad that you find Vizref useful in organizing your inspiration. We are dedicated to adding as many features as the app needs to be an even better experience for everyone.

To address your specific feedback about having vizref work better with other apps, This is unfortunately out of our hands. I've personally tried leaving feedback with Pinterest on their app with no response. I'm not really sure what the point of making a photo based image app for iPad that removes more than half of the operating systems core features, but that seems to be what most developers like to do. Other developers taking away features from artists is one of the main reasons I was so passionate in making this app. We are hoping they see the value and need for restoring the Ipad's multitasking features to their apps and allow users to combine applications better. Please leave them your feedback! But again, we can only ensure our app works with web and other applications that support the iPad's multitasking features.
