Ensnared by Tangled!

I have loads of photo apps on my iPhone, this one does not try to be a jack of all trades, it does one type of effect perfectly. I've never seen any effect like this, and the app enables you to apply it in a variety of ways, and tweak each of them either in a basic mode or the advanced mode with several more factors to fine tune. It is easy as can be to use, yet with enough depth that one could experiment with it for months (years?) to get precise images just the way they want them. So, whether you just want to apply a cool preset filter and be done, go in a bit more and fine tune various settings (all of them or just the basic set), or start making and saving your own custom settings and using the app to make something that feels your own, this app is terrific. I've been exploring it for a couple of days, and just realized I can apply filters over photos I've already filtered through Tangled, getting some really nifty looking stuff. I'm just goofing around mostly, but sometimes I realize an hour or two have gone by, this app is such a joy to use.

I agree with others, the only thing I can think of to make this app better is a mask or other way to apply the effects to only certain parts of a photo. It'd be nice, but I'm fine without it.


Probably one of the most underrated photo effects app in the App Store!

This app creates probably one of the most amazing and beautiful affects of any app in the App Store. Why there are not hundreds of thousands of reviews I don’t know. Easily has to be THE most underrated professional effects app in the Apple App Store. And I have just about them all.
I create effects that I have sold professionally. Even without a gigantic time investment, even a child can create amazing professional effects that amaze.
I personally recommend this at any price!

Totally awesome!

This application is one of my favorite on my iPad. I love the ease of use and I love the effects and my ability to adjust them. About the only thing that I wish it had was ability to mask area so that not all the effects cover the entire picture. It would also be nice to be able to have a slightly faster way of saving.

This is definitely part of my top photo effects tools!
