Review by CristinaDiem

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!

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.

Great App! - Very easy to navigate through the app. Tutorial at the beginning is very good. I like the simple approach to adding filters, color, etc. without all the complicated stuff. If you want to get technical you can, but it’s not like other programs where you need to be exceptionally savvy to make normal pictures spectacular pictures.
