Version 3.4.6
Review by Lars Unplugged

Has a great feature called de-haze - Has a great feature called de-haze. This app has a lot of tweaks for a free app, better than some pricy photo editors. I used the browser version more than a year ago. The de-haze can clear up hazy-cloudy sky landscapes. You can use de-haze on any photo to supplement the sharpening. Like most photo programs, you learn more over time as you use it. I only edit copies of my original photos , so that in the future if some greater program, or version becomes available, you always have the untouched original (copies) to start a new photo adjustment. I would suggest using the web browser version to practice because it has a great feature by feature tutorial that is interactive, and allows you to adjust a sample photo, or not, each step of the way through the features.

Review by Ultra100

Scam - I don’t mind paying for a product if a company is up front with me. There was no mention from the app store of a cost but to use this product you do have to pay. I don’t appreciate being scammed and lied to.

Photo saving app. - I got this app in an effort to edit some pictures I took and didn’t feel like using my phone to edit since I wanted to see the pictures on a bigger scale on my laptop. This app turned out to be amazing and even with the little options it has with the free version I was still able to make a drastic change to the pictures that needed editing. Couldn’t have asked for a better app on such short notice!

Review by hvwphoto

This app saved me! - My computer with Photoshop and Lightroom crashed and I had a deadline to sort through and edit thousands of photos. This app saved me! It worked beautifully! The free version doesn’t have everything you might need, but it had way more than I was expecting and did a fast and great job on all those photos. (And I NEVER submit app reviews, so this is saying a lot!)
