  • Crashed on first use

    By Scarfandgloves
    A black and white app, I'd have thought would provide per color channel manipulation of saturation. This seems like a no brainer. I want to do things like darken or brighten only the blue channel to make dramatic skies, Etc. Otherwise it's a great collection of filters and a photoeditor with the typical adjustments, that happens to also crash it seems. The progressive vignette adjustment is the best I have seen in a phone app. So that's a positive. Not being able to opt out of push and then the initial crash is disappointing.
  • Waste of money!

    Don’t fall for the hype reviews! This is such a waste of $20 bucks!
  • Not worth 20$

    The black & white filters are ok , but the color I don’t really have a use for. There are actually too many black and white. The editing tools are pretty much the same as other apps. I still prefer the native apple app for noir shots and camera+ for my color work. Procamera has excellent HDR. SORRY THIS APP IS AVERAGE AT BEST.
  • It’s alright.

    Good app overall, would be nice to be able to revert last changes, hopefully next update.
  • Waste of time

    You only get 4 free filters... the rest you have to pay $3.99 for a different set of filters. It’s completely stupid. Most of the reviews are fake. Do not get this app.
  • Can’t believe nobody has mentioned this!

    This app is not suitable for serious image editing. When you save an image it reduces the size and resolution drastically. It reduces my 10 mb full size mages to less than 800kb!! May be ok for Instagram but not for anything more. Waste of time.
  • Extremely polished advertisement

    By mArcane
    How this app managed to get featured I’ll never know, but be forewarned that it’s literally 4 black and white filters, and some frames. All the other features are behind paywalls, and the app nags you constantly to buy them. I mean, even if you happened to be okay with the meager free features as is, the app is pretty much unusable with the constant efforts to get you to buy more packs, filters, premium, etc, etc. It’s possible the paid version of this app is great, but I’ll never try it.
  • Nothing my iPhone doesn't already do.

    By Xanadu Smith
    I was excited about this app for B&W photography...until I downloaded and tried it. There is nothing this app can produce that I haven't already done using the regular "edit" features on my iPhone. The ads are gorgeous, what I really downloaded was a beautiful and intrusive commercial instead of a photo editor. Why must there be two pages of the same ads to swipe away, instead of a preview before I buy? Those extras are corny anyway, and can be easily created on any other pic editor for free. Don't waste time, money, or space on your device bothering with this...portfolio.
  • Nice but still Crap

    By mrhadji
    I just purchased the full version of this app and it is not all it is promoted to be. First, it can’t rotate from portrait to landscape, but when I used the slide adjustment the image suddenly switched back and forth from portrait to landscape as I moved the adjustment. I’d like my money back, plain and simple. I do not recommend this app unless there are some major improvements.
  • App is useless, doesn’t work!
