Version 2.8
Review by Artbrat

Awesome! - I use this along with Photoshop to punch up my photos. It’s esp. great for adding color to drab pictures. It’s also really useful when you have a nice shot that is a bit blurry - you can disguise it with effects! I love being able to use masks to add an effect to just part of a photo. Apparently, this version will not save at full resolution - I think you need the “pro” version for that.

Version 2.8
Review by Thor the Greater

Not Good - I paid good money for this and I expected it to include things like brushes and layering, which it didn't. You're basically paying $10 for some effects that you could get for much cheaper. Overall, not a very good photo editor. It is fine if you're just looking for effects, but it is not what I was looking for and i am very disappointed (tears were shead).

Version 3.0.1
Review by DavmiDesigns

Worth the Money - Simply put, I love this app. It’s quick and painless to edit images that you want to emulate into ‘Instagram-style.’ It’s less complex than Photoshop yet avoids the exporting nightmare that is Instagram. In the end, you get an app that gives you professional-quality filters and effects without breaking your bank, time-constraint or spirit. Definitely worth the price and I recommend it to beginners and professionals alike.

Still great! - Love the update. It is still the great application, which keeps your interest in experimenting with each photo. My favorites are vintage and comic effects.

Review by aimdance

Nice but wish they had a text box option - Tons of filters, but I don’t feel all are actually usable. I would rather see more that are helpful filters to quickly fix photos for “ready to print” status. I am also very disappointed that there is not a text box option.

Version 3.0.1
Review by Padupple

Fun and useful - There is a lot of power packed into this app. For a non-creative person, it’s a great tool. The various effects combine what would take a lot of work in a photo editor. The ability to use masks and also take care of basic things like cropping really help. With this app and Pixelmator I find that I can do a lot of things that are near-impossible for a an amateur with little time to learn a tool like Photoshop. It’s never crashed on me as some graphics app are prone to do after much editing. Working great with El Capitan.
