Love, but something happened? UPDATED

I have LOVED this app for a while now, but recently (noticed maybe 2 weeks ago?) something’s not been working, more than half the filters that are indicated to be usable in the free version just stopped working. Random ones will work, but clicking on most of them just does nothing. I tried deleting and redownloading the app, but it still seems to be doing that. I don’t know if it’s a purposeful change and for what reason it would be done like this, but it did make it a big bummer to use and I hardly touch it now. Interestingly, it seems like all of the free effects still work, it’s just the filters (which I probably used more than the effects)

UPDATE: developer asked me to delete and redownload and it worked this time 🤦🏻‍♀️ I swear I tried that already, but here we are! Favorite editing app, use it a TON. Absolutely being a baby making any complaint as so much of this is free. Amazing app overall!

you need premium for EVERYTHING

If you want to use any of the ACTUAL good stuff, you need to pay for the stupid premium. It was only about a year ago where I used one of my favorite effects that give off a film/disposable camera sort of look. However, recently— as in like 5 mins ago— when I tried to use it, suddenly I’m brought to the premium screen???! Like why??? I never had to pay for it before???? So after I realized I couldn’t use it anymore I tried to use a different effect, tell me why I pressed one , that DIDNT have the little star next to it, which lets you know that an effect or filter is premium, and i immediately get sent to the premium screen!!!! I’m so annoyed! I always thought this app was a go to for effects and filters even though a lot required premium but now it feels like if you want to use anything you HAVE to get premium. Now,I’ve been seeing the developers/company reply to other recent reviews saying that there are “300” free filters but 1. Doubt it’s 300 since if you press on an effect you have different variations of that effect and the majority have the premium star next to it and 2. it’s usually the worst variation that’s free and and If they are free effects they’re usually outdated or ugly. The only reason it gets TWO stars is because at some point this was a really nice app to use. Get if you want to pay is basically what I’m saying but I’m sure you can find free options.

Developer Response ,

Hello! Prequel is a free app and we are trying to maintain a balance between paid and free versions of the app. By now, we offer over 300 effects variations for free. What is more, there are many other subscription plans available. Feel free to contact us at

why are so many things premium??!!

so i downloaded this app with my friends one day, and i was obsessed. i came across the anime filter and used it all the time! the pics turned out really well and i loved this app like most of my day was on this app. the anime filter was by far my favorite and kinda the only one i used. after a while, i stopped using this app for around a month. and when i came back i was like, “oh, the anime filter!” and looked for it. and when i found it, to my surprise…it was premium. IT WAS THE ONLY FILTER I USED. i wouldn’t care if every single filter was premium i LOVE the anime filter! it worked so well and it’s better than the other filters i’ve used. but ofc, it’s premium. i also enjoyed the fantasy filter. and you guessed it, premium. all the other cool filters? premium. litteraly EVERYTHING? yup, premium. CAN YALL CHILL WITH THE PREMIUM?! i honestly loved this app like last year or two ago but when you made all my favorite filters premium, you don’t know how disappointed i was. and you might be like, “well, buy the premium!” yeah that’s kinda hard when your not allowed to spend money on apps.
if the free filters were actually GOOD and everything wasn’t PREMIUM, this would be five stars. but sadly, this gets a two. i’m disappointed but will keep checking to see if they actually get good filters soon. please add some good filters back to the free!!!
