First of all, I can't import any photos from my device into the local editor. I have an 11 pro. I can create a new image, then edit the blank image, but how do you make an image editor t h a t d o e s n t i m p o r t i m a g e s??? Am I supposed to figure out how to move them into a special folder? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Then there's the remote editor. It looks just like the desktop version, only nothing is scaled to fit a mobile screen so you constantly zoom in and zoom out using buttons, not native gestures. Then ~I guess~ you can import your images but the zoom thing is a huge annoyance, plus it froze up before I had chance to see if I could actually import anything. Now it says to use an iPad or bigger screen, but this is ios not the ipad operating system so why is it even in the app store if it doesn't work with my device?? even if I did air play it onto a larger screen I still have to use that stupid zoom.
As much as I love gimp, this port is pure trash and should be deleted from the app store.
Like many others, I downloaded this hoping that it would be similar to the desktop version, or at least a trimmed-down version. This app has two modes: a poor emulation of the desktop version, and a half-functional copy of MS Paint.
The “remote” version looks like the desktop version, but imagine you’re running Windows 98 with no video driver; the colors are not even close to being correct. Furthermore, after picking a tool, the app with occasionally display a “please wait” message and fail to do anything.
The “local” version works if all you need to do is free-hand paint everything. It has a few tools that mostly work (these also have loading issues periodically), but some of the adjustment sliders are obscured by the ads. Additionally, the effects tool covers up a potion of adjustment sliders that aren’t already covered by ads, so if you slide the bar too low, you have to select a different effect to reset the slider. This mode also includes stamps and emoticons, but the selection is so limited as to be unusable.
Overall, this seems like an aborted attempt at getting into the mobile market. It may have some use if you just need to draw basic pictures, but for anyone who is expecting Gimp will be very disappointed.
Probably a scam
Im a huge fan of the desktop version, and it’s everything you want in a photo editor, but they tried to put the desktop version on the phone, and you can’t even tilt it or use your fingers to make the screen bigger! If you could do those two things I just mentioned then it would be great, but I feel they only made this to get people using it for the first time to look at the ads, then give gimp the money, then they leave, and one easy way to prove this is that the only ad I have ever seen on it is another effing mobile photo editing app
