Give it a whirl!

This quickly became one of my favorite apps, with the best Droste effect I’ve seen. It provides numerous ways to tweak your results, some subtle, some dramatic. The masking choices hold the key to the most spectacular results. I do wish it had a brush-on mask. A means of adding more than one circle or polygon would be useful, too. As long as I’m wishing, I’d love to be able to create custom presets for rendering/saving images. I never use the defaults.

All in all this is a rich, well-thought-out app that can produce spectacular results once you become familiar with the settings.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review! I've been avoiding adding too many mask options since image editors can be used as well for advanced mask editing. Creating presets is a good idea, so I will add that to my todo-list.

Developer Response ,

I tested it on an iPhone6 and everything seems to be fine. If you tell me what exactly doesn't work for you I can take a look and try to fix it. [Edit:] Another user reported crashes for phones using iOS12 and older. I'm assuming you are were also using an older iOS version. This bug is fixed now, so you could give it another try if you want.
