Ratings and Reviews
This app is terribly overlooked despite just how thorough and customizable it is. There are indeed other apps with better / swifter UIs, but of the 20+ photo apps in my Photo apps folder, I can only get this specific look with Mextures.
My only gripe is the laggy interface after saving a photo. After applying a "formula" and saving an image, the app lags for a solid 30 seconds to a full minute before any of the controls respond normally. This was true on my iPhone 6, and is true still on my iPhone 7 Plus. I'm not sure if my gigantic iCloud Photo Library (65,000 photos) is a factor, but no other photo apps experience anything like this lag.
Also, I would love an easier way to backup custom formulas. I spend a LOT of time and energy creating custom formulas and just share them manually to my other devices as a backup. An auto-backup in the cloud would be fantastic, though I understand this would be quite an undertaking for the developer.
Every single photo in my IG feed (a_wrong_time_ago) for about the past year solid has gone through Mextures first. It's a powerful app that has the potential to give your photos a subtle-but-distinct look that is impossible to duplicate in other apps.
FINALLY updated to fit the new screen sizes but still too slow
This is one of my favorite apps but I feel like it’s been neglected. Sparse updates, no new expansion packs and overlays, and very laggy performance plague this app. Even after the new update it takes me 50 seconds of waiting for it to even load my photo library... I timed it. It takes a full minute as well to export a photo with one simple overlay layer. It shouldn’t take this long. I’m using an iPhone XS Max.
The more I look at it the more I realize he(they?) just did the bare minimum to keep the app from being deleted by Apple for not being optimized. It doesn’t actually work with the iPhoneX screen, parts are cropped off, there’s text at the top that’s hidden under the notch, and the buttons at the top can’t be reached. It’s crashed four times in the past 20 minutes making me lose all my work! Super sloppy work!
It’s 2018. Mextures should have the ability to open multiple photos, batch-copy formulas to multiple photos, and batch export. We should have more filter packs by now. And get rid of the suggested square crop at the beginning, we’ll crop our photos how we want.
Amazing texture layering app
This app is an amazing and easy to use tool for changing the feel of a photo. Its many overlays are beautiful and customizable with blend modes and opacity level. You can also rotate them 90 degrees to change where a certain color or the lightest part shows up. The layers button is very handy- when it’s open you can see each layer, hide certain ones from view temporarily, and tap on one to edit it or replace it. The fact that the number of layers is unlimited is the cherry on top- the app wouldn’t be what it is without it. The basic adjustment tools aren’t super fancy but they don’t have to be. They work well and complete the function of the app. I would absolutely LOVE to see the addition of a masking tool so that control over the effects is complete. More blend modes would also be fun to experiment with, although the current selection is great. I’m so glad the devs optimized this app- it’s a photo editing fave.
