  • Great App, but glitch heavy

    by Zachhaj

    One of my favorite photo editing apps of all time, unfortunately it often crashes and needs a reinstall before working for awhile and then repeating the same process. Needs another bug fix or platform compatibility check at least (running on iPhone 4S)

  • Love this app!!!

    by NicoleBosch

    Totally worth 99 cents!!

  • Perf

    by Directioner#100

    by Cornellbear

    I've had many apps for editing pics for IG (I'm a heavy duty IG foodie), and this one has managed to stay on my phone for the over a year. Thanks! <3

  • App always crashes

    by Lovelylovelovelove

    This was definitely my favorite picture editing app. I used to use it for my photography Instagram account but now I can't add any filters or save a picture without the app crashing. I hope it gets fixed soon!

  • no

    by grkleprechaun

    this app crashes every time I try to use it now so I've stopped using it and have resorted to other apps. annoyed because it does have great options, but I can't use them and I paid for it. don't bother.

  • Crashes :(

    by Joskii

    Every time I try to save something it crashes and doesn't save its really annoying me because I used to like this app and its filters but can't do any thing on it with its frequent crashes!

  • Crashes too often to be any use

    by Theycallmejamesdean

    Every time I try to combine filters, it crashes. Too frustrating to be useful.

  • Please fix the CRASHING

    by AustinVegas88

    I have iPhone 4S on 7.0.4... App crashes every time I try to save to camera roll or open in another app. Love the flexibility with sliders and good design otherwise. I won't be using or promoting this app until this is resolved. Thx

  • Favorite Edit App

    by Chansp23

    This is by far my favorite app for editing photos. Nothing has changed for the worse and every filter is fantastic!

  • Horrible

    by Taylormadeeee

    I bought this app and it worked great and then I updated it and now it crashes every time I try and use it! Very disappointing because it was a very good app

  • Perfect!

    by Chinomso

    A popular blogger I knew was using this app, so I decided to get it and I must say, I love it. I don't really use it for the filters, but the bokeh effect is elegantly amazing! I also love how when I'm done editing, it allows me to open it up instantly on other apps like iPhoto, etc. Very convenient!

  • Crash

    by Sally palomino

    Distorts my photo when I add a filter. When I save it comes as distorted.

  • Mad

    by Bibibentonyo

    This app used to be my favorite, but now it crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I try to use it. Please fix it soon because it has the best effects. Might try afterlight.

    by Braun Braun

    You can get the most righteous tones from this app. Definitely helped me become a suggested user on Instagram.

  • App crashes constantly

    by anvasquez

    Loved this app, but ever since the new update the app crashes every time I try to filter a picture. It's extremely annoying

  • One of the best

    by kzzi

    One of my favorite go-to editing apps!

  • What happened??

    by Unic0rn!

    I used to LOVE this app, and used it with nearly all my photos. But then it was updated and has been crashing ever since. Not functional whatsoever. So, so sad.

  • by SwagYolo✌

    I bought this app and it always CRASHES. it's great when it doesn't crash. PLEASE update this. can't even use it because it crashes all the dang time.

  • Fix ASAP!

    by Kellyannaaa

    With the new Instagram update all my pictures look disorientated & blurry. Please fix ASAP :(

  • Great FX, Lousy Realiability

    by Kevboe1

    The effects set included with this program is quite extensive. The effects are quite good, too. Unfortunately, the latest version of this program is very unreliable. I've already been through contacting support, as I paid for this program and expect it to work, and I'm having problems again. Most unfortunate. I hope the developers and quality-control can get their act together and get this program working again, as I do enjoy using it.

  • Never had a problem until latest update

    by MzP3r3z

    I love picfx don't get me wrong but lately all it's doing is crashing when I try to add another effect or save my picture. And as I read on I am not the only one. Please fix because picfx is my all time favorite of all the photo apps. Thank you. :)

  • Awesome app!

    by Tavius jr

    I've been using this app to add depth to my fashion illustrations! It rocks!

  • Love but..

    by Lokimmm

    Love this app but it does run slow and crash at times. However so worth the money!

  • Don't get it

    by liana_mulholland

    It's not worth your money if it crashes every time you try to save your photo, ridiculous.

  • Useless

    by Taizey

    This app is seriously a piece of garbage. I want my money back

  • Love

    by Tiedyed_00

    I can be so creative! And I'm not a creative person!

  • Force closes

    by Awesomeeeees

    This app is really good, the edits are amazing. But it always force closes on me it's so annoying!!

  • I love it!

    by anna1828r

    I use this app all the time! Lots of options and it's easy to use!

  • LOVE it

    by greenturtle04

    This was one of my first picture editing apps and I LOVE it. It has so many options, and they're awesome! They have the light you can add to pictures too! And you can pick how much of a filter you want which is great because sometimes a filter is too bright or strong for my taste! Get this app!!

  • What's the Point!!

    by Kendra773

    I bought this app for nothing. It constantly crashes I have iOS 7 and updated this app and it crashes before I can finish a photo. What a waste! I liked the original app format better. Do not update!!!

  • Solid, but should be $0.99

    by Jesse CourteManche

    I use the app mainly for the light effects, borders and, occasionally, the filters. It's a solid app, but def overpriced.
