Ratings and Reviews
Order lost in the ether - with no notification
UPDATED: the developer did end up giving me a courtesy credit, which I appreciated. And the photos arrived about 10 days after ordering; they’re good quality. I do wonder about some of the other recent reviews though - some sound pretty canned (the one app I can’t live without? During the pandemic, when you can’t get out of this country if you wanted to?). But in the end, issues resolved and sure better than trying to DIY or go to the drugstore for a photo.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I put through several orders using the app but never got any kind of confirmation, so I finally emailed to see what was up. Two days later I got an email saying that their PayPal system was down and that I should make sure I wasn’t charged. I wasn’t, but when I requested to pay using a credit card I was told I had to start from scratch. So it’s now a week later, no photos are on the way, and I have to hang up another white sheet to stand in front of to do this all over again. Fail. Major fail. The app team did NOT offer a comp (despite the fact that their email signature insists they will make it right). And as far as I can tell, it’s still possible to pay using PayPal, which means others’ orders are going into oblivion as well.

Hello, we have reached out to you via email and working with you to resolve this.
Don’t go to Walgreens or anywhere else!
I spent $15 at Walgreens to have my passport photo taken for me. The employee seemed really tired and fed up, so I was scared to ask to have my picture retaken. I looked awful and was really upset how it came out.
Passport photos are stuck with you for 10 years. Feeling really unhappy with the one that was taken for me at Walgreens (not to mention the ridiculous price), I downloaded this app and thought “there’s no harm in trying this out.” Due to poor lighting in my house, I took my own photo at school while standing in front of a plain white wall under the fluorescent lights in the hallway. Yes you read that right. I took the photo myself. It took a couple of tries to position my shoulders and extend my arm in a way to where it didn’t look obvious that I was taking a “selfie.” What’s great about this app is that the outline (where you keep your face in place) is completely accurate and the app saves two identical 2x2’s in a single frame just like the ones at Walgreens. I uploaded the photo onto the Walgreens app which costed less than a dollar to have them print it. I stapled that baby onto the passport application and prayed that they wouldn’t find a reason not to accept it. Luckily, they did!! This app works and I’m so glad it exists.

Thank you Joce_xo for the review! I feel you...I started making the app because of a bad experience I had getting my photos at a pharmacy by someone who was slow and didn't care. Having someone care makes a big difference! I'm glad you were able to figure out better lighting as many people struggle with lighting at home. I've also had success at schools and offices using white walls as well as whiteboards. Thanks again for the feedback!
This app is great because you can download all sizes for free, but there is no flash settings!!
Update: thank you for responding to my review. Ill keep it at 3 stars, 4 stars would’ve been if it had flash. I think it compares similarly to other apps. The pro of this app is that you can download all types of photos. The con is it’s still missing a lot of features. I don’t know why the flash feature had to be removed because ppl can just turn it off if it was causing shadows for them. I didn’t end up using the photo I got from this app, because of lighting issues (I was standing in front of a window with direct sunlight but the person photographing me was causing a shadow on my face that could have been improved using flash). They are similar because although I can get all photos in color here, I would still need to edit it to fix any lighting issues (in my case, my friend tried to photoshop for me). But I used a different app with flash photo, saved the 2x2 (the only one available for free), and placed it on a 4x6 myself. Flash helps create a more professional looking photo.

I appreciate your feedback. The flash will be added back in a future version (if you have an android you can see it). We removed it because too many people had poor results due to the flash (strong shadows for example). If you are finding the app useful and really think it's great, I'd ask that you reconsider the low 3 star rank you've given my app. Anyway, your concerns are noted - thanks for taking the time to leave your review! UPDATE: Yes, you're right, but that's not what was happening. Too many people were printing the photos with the shadows. Also, most people don't have the skill to edit in photoshop. It was done to improve the experience for most people though I know it wasn't a perfect solution. I'm working on the next version to overhaul the app and include other features as well.
