    I loved this app. Used it for every photo. Got a new phone and upon redownload via my iTunes account used to originally purchased, I wasn’t able to restore the over $50 dollars of effects and filters I purchased. Super frustrated. Such a bummer as I loved it so. But won’t be spending again for apps I already bought.

    Update is awesome. I like that I can plan my posts ahead of time and see what the feed will look like. Check it out 👌🏼
  • Love this app!

    I've used every photo editor and this one is the best! Amazing filters and features and easy to use! Last photo app I'll ever need.
  • New update a little wonky

    By Jim Pittaluga
    When editing photos in the grid, it automatically changes them. Then when you go to apply new change it doesn’t look the same once the image is saved. Also the option to save steps is a little more difficult from what I gather. Now you have to go into your recents and save them from there.
  • A lot of IAP upgrades, but lackluster performance

    By Techno-nut
    There are a lot of upgrades that have to purchased thru IAPs. A lot of the filters, effects, tools, etc. I don't object to that, in fact I appreciate the developer letting me test the app with the minimal set of fesatures to see if it meets my needs. If it does, I gladly pay for the additional stuff I want. My objection (read...deal killer) is the lackluster output. The app saves at about 12mp on an iPad Pro. I edit 20mp images from my DSLR and I refuse to let an app step on my images and downsample them to a lower resolution that frankly is just barely suitable for 8x10 prints. If you are only looking to post your edited images to social media, send via e-mail, etc., this app is perfect, and has a lot going for it. If you want to print your images, you probably should look elsewhere. I will. I'll be sticking with those apps that save at full resolution.
  • 2.0 update is awesome!

    By MaryChesney
    The update is incredibly well thought out. The app now has features that I hadn’t seen in other photo editing apps (but wish they had). You can do a grid planner which can connect to your Instagram acct. The grid is super user friendly - as far as moving the photos around, editing them from the grid, an you can even schedule posts from this app now! The app can now do batch editing as well, which is an awesome time saver and creates a consistent look with your photos. Also I bought the Fawn pack a few weeks ago for editing and am IN LOVE! It makes the photos so dreamy and creamy smooth💕

    I am a professional photographer and have downloaded and invested in many apps over the years including VSCO, Afterlight and Snapseed. This photo editing app does more than just help you edit photos with beautiful filters. You can add filters to videos and brighten them up and even crop the video. It has a curves option that is intuitive and easy to understand. The Instagram grid planning feature is seamless and allows for a preview of your post as well as a reminder option to alert you when it is time to post. The new batch editing tool alleviates opening and closing the app over and over agin when editing multiple photos - especially helpful when editing photos for an Instagram story. My other favorite feature is that is changes the date/time stamp in the metadata of the photo, so any newly edited photos show up at the front of your camera roll. The newest filter packs are worth their weight in gold. Such an affordable way to make your feed consistent and visual content across all platforms match. (Did i mention you can also edit boomerangs?!) This is one powerful tool. And to think you get it for free, all you have to purchase are additional filter packs - you get all the above mentioned features for FREE.
  • Your app is buggy upon start up!

    By Just a ollie dollie
    Strange problem I downloaded your app and purchased some effects and filters. The first time I wanted to use the app, I opened The app and gave it permission to use my Photos. It then started a download but it never downloaded anything at all. I do not use iCloud at all so I am not sure if the app was trying to download photos from iCloud or not. I have to close the program and do that to stop it from continuing to try to download Photos which it cannot do and never does. The app is unusable like this, so could you please give me some insight as to what I can do or can you fix the app so that I can use my photo camera roll on my phone. By the way, if I reopen the app, the first thing it does is try to download something from somewhere but it cannot download anything or it never down to load anything at all. This is very strange to me. If the area is trying to download photos from iCloud, it cannot because I do not use iCloud.
  • I have waited all my life for this

    As a photoshop user...this app is everything! I have used it for about fifteen minutes and am extremely impressed! Love the curves feature!!! ABM never disappoints. TWO YRS LATER: Since the latest update it includes the GRID! It's so good. Basically all my apps in on now.
