Make this app a photo extension so you can add the blurt effects right inside the photos app. That would help for the older phones that don’t have the dual cameras etc. to get that blur effect right inside the photos app. I have iPhone SE and I use this app all the time for portrait mode blur. With a little more fine tuning of the auto photo blur , this app would be perfect. Sometimes the app doesn’t separate the person from the background too great. I know it works off of software only. But the google pixel does this with one camera also. Thanks. I hope I’m not asking for too much. I just really like the app and want to see it better.

Amazing but lost all pro features after upgrading to pro

I upgraded to a monthly subscription, unlocked the pro features (aperture control, 3D lighting, etc.) and these worked, for about a half hour; when I tried the app again, these features had disappeared, and the app had reverted to its standard, unpaid features. Contacted support, they could not help me (I could not find anything on the app or in the App Store to “restore the purchase”, which made no sense to begin with-I’d just purchased it), I deleted and reinstalled the app (and restored the purchase after this), restarted the phone several times, and swore several times loudly. No luck. Still waiting for someone to respond to me (sent screenshots to support, no response after that).

Developer Response ,

Thanks. Can you please update the app? We would appreciate it if you give feedback again after updating the app.

Worth a solid 5 Stars

An Outstanding AI Portrait and Macro Camera for the IPhone. It has clearly established itself as the front runner in this iOS camera apps.

I got n internal server error when submitting a support request

I was trying to report a series of random crashes. I composed a lenthy report and all for naught.
