What’s New

Version 3.10.0

Still the easiest way to take your photos from good to great - thanks for making PicTapGo an essential part of your kit!

In this exciting update!!!

- Yet more progress on the startup crashes which began with v3.9.0 (1)
- Once again saves a copy of the image with borders when sharing to Instagram (2)
- The PTG Camera Roll is now properly sorted by date
- Option to use the current time as the creation date when saving images (3)
- The Go screen tiles now sport a sassy red checkmark after you've shared via a method. Some users missed the red "+" sign on the camera roll tile (you're right. My bad.). Now you can be sure when you've taken an action when looking at a share option.
- The camera roll refreshes more reliably after saving an image. Or changing the thumbnail size.
- Fixed some miscellaneous UI bugs that you probably didn't notice. But I did.

1. I think it's really, truly fixed for reals this time, but alas I am only a man, and I'm sure in my infinite fallibility, I will have overlooked some edge case yet again.

2. This is a long story, so buckle up. Way back in like 2016, the IG app had a bug where it would ignore the photo we sent to it, and instead just load up the first photo in the photo library. On the surface, it looked like PicTapGo had broken something about the integration, and that we were no longer adding borders when sharing to Instagram. Bedlam ensued, as angry customers contacted us and wrote scathing reviews. Since we're not a Billion Dollar Company™, with the luxury of telling our customers to go get stuffed when they're mad (ahem), we quickly released an update that worked around the bug in the IG app by saving the bordered image to the photo library as well. It was gross, but it worked. This was meant to be a short-term hack until IG got their s*** together and fixed it, but ended up sticking around in our codebase for almost three years. I even inserted a compiler warning at the offending line of code (and it was, seriously, just one line), so I wouldn't forget. Fast forward to 2019. Users have come and gone. Empires have risen and fallen. Carnival barkers and conmen have risen to the highest echelons of power in the land. In my foolishness, I thought "surely, since the original bug has been long since fixed, we can remove this hack?" No. People had grown to rely on our hack as a feature, and were mad that I un-kludged stuff. So we've added it back. You're welcome, you weirdos. :)

3. If you prefer the old behavior, you have two options. Either 1) use the PicTapGo album to access images created from PTG, or 2) turn off Preserve Original Creation Date in the PicTapGo settings.

Update didn’t update, then app didn’t work, but now all is well.

Previous Review: I’ve absolutely love this app until 2 days ago when it updated. Now the app won’t even work. Goes to the PicTapGo screen and never loads and then shuts down. Totally frustrating because this was my favorite app to use for editing pics!

Updated Review: The Developers jumper on fixing this bug pretty fast. I was surprised this week when I saw the notification pop up with their response telling me to download the very newest update. And wah-la! It is now working seamlessly again! Thank God because this app is the basis for my IG feed! Thanks so much guys for making an awesome app!

Developer Response ,

Sorry it's been a rough couple of releases - a tricky bug slipped in affecting users with large-ish photo libraries, which should be fixed in the newly released v3.10.0. Try updating and the issue should be fixed. If not, please let us know at (...and be sure to leave us an updated review :)

iPhone X issue/conflict

I love this app and have been using it for years as a stand-alone, to edit right from my camera roll and also to edit in the Project Life App ... I don’t post or scrapbook a picture without it!! As a new iPhone X owner I’m finding it really tricky to use the slider along the bottom because it is right in line with all of the function to close and swipe between apps in turn iPhone X interface. Any chance the PTH slider can be moved up 1/2” to move it out of that “conflict zone”?

Developer Response ,

We can definitely look into bumping that slider up a bit in the next release :)

Love when it's working

I use this app frequently but it has always had an extremely irritating issue. 9/10x after editing a photo, the last step in the "save image" process doesn't reflect any changes made within the app. If you want your edits to be saved, you have to screen shot the entire screen during the editing process and crop the photo within your device's photo app. I have been waiting patiently for this issue to be resolved, assuming it was a known problem among users, but obviously nothing has been done. This app is so convenient and I would love to see this functionality corrected so users can use the app without issues saving the image, which defeats the purpose of choosing this app for photo editing.

Developer Response ,

Oh no! That's a problem we haven't heard of yet, but we definitely want to get to the bottom of it. Please contact us at so we can get more information. Thanks!
