Version 1.2
Review by maxblack113

Really great! - This app is very cut and dry. No nonsense. Extremely simple to navigate, has tons of presets, and all of which are very customizable. Also has other cool features such as brushes for colorsplash and focus effects. For $5 you can’t go wrong. Plus it fully supports RAW images and offers an extension to edit right in the photos app. Only gave it 4 stars because it is a tad choppy/sluggish. On my 2015 15 inch MBPR, this shouldn’t be. But not at all bad enough to affect workflow. Just something that could be improved.

Version 1.2
Review by WhoopsieGoldberg

Total waste of money - When I zoom in I can’t move my photo around to edit the area I want to edit. When I get the dodge tool out the smallest brush size available is far too big to edit what I want to edit. When you go to the website for “support” it is just a website in Italian with a guy’s email address — no help to be found on the site whatsoever. This app is a total piece of junk and I want my money back.
