Fun and easy to use

Have been using app for a while now, love the ease in which it can be used and if you have the other apps from them it’s easy to export and continue your creation . Highly recommended.

Incredible but disappointing!

This app is incredibly powerful with its lighting effects. It could definitely use some improvements to its user interface but it gets the job done. I removed one star because the app consistently crashes. Whenever I try to load in a new picture the app crashes, I have to delete it and reinstall. The other star is because the finished photo downgrades the pictures quality severely. It makes a clear up close photo with lots of detail look out of focus when you export it. This is a big deal and should be fixed. There are other things I would love to see added like the ability to save layers so that you can try them on different photos without having you redo the entire thing. The app is very powerful but has so much more potential!

Developer Response ,

I appreciate the review and feedback. LensFlare should be saving at up to 4000x4000 pixels. I'm looking into the crashing which may be a permissions issue. Please try deleting and reinstalling. You won't be charged twice. Please email at so we can help work this out.

Still an amazing app

Loved it back then on my old iPod. I uninstalled it on my 5s due to crash issues and now it’s back on my iPhone X. The only issue is it has no support for the X at the moment. The app cuts off at a certain spot on the screen which is no biggy, but looks quite ugly. Hopefully it’s updated soon other than that. No complaints on the app. Still works as it did back then. 👌

Developer Response ,

Glad you're still using and enjoying LensFlare! I'm working on an update for iPhoneX. I just finished updating all of my other apps and this is the last one!
