Overall pretty amazing app. Works well, great concept, and great execution. My two complaints are

1. You have to pay in order to remove the watermark. Okay I get it, you guys want to make money on a free app, it’s understandable. But make it a possibility to remove the watermark without having to pay for it, make the buyable content more filters, more template options, effects, colors, etc. Or just take out the watermark all together.

2. This might just be for me or maybe only in the latest version of the app (maybe a bug), but I actually can’t buy anything. The watermark can’t be removed and I can’t buy any extra stuff on the app. If you guys want to make money off of this app, make it so that people can actually buy stuff if they want to. All it says for me is “Buy for (null)”

It's a simple album creator (Edited)

The watermark was removed through an in app purchase, fair enough.
I would recommend when changing the size and angle of the text to do a snap to grid feature or a number escalator. I say this because I want my text to be at a perfect horizontal display and whenever I go to edit the font i have to tweak it forever to get it just right. That grid helps but if there was a feature to snap to grid or an arrow to flip to horizontal perfectly that would be great!
Might I also suggest for the stickers or whatever that portion is to add some cool classic basic album stickers like stereo sound or things you’d find on classic albums.

Developer Response ,

Hey, Thanks again for the feedback about the horizontal display and editing fonts. We have a list we're aiming to work through with improvements. Classic cover stickers is noted. cheers

Thanks for the feedback and great suggestions.
You can remove the watermark with an IAP - just go to the store top right and tap Marks - Remove Watermark.

Needs work..

I enjoyed the app enough to where I paid to have the watermark removed. However.... there are a few suggestions.
1. A way to save projects. ( I was working on album art for approx. 30 mins and my battery died. When I got back to the app.... fresh start. Very disappointing. )
2. Snap to grid for text! More texts options for the size and things of that sort. Took. FOREVER to straighten my text to the best that my eye can tell.

Other than that I have no problems.
