  • Best Camera App Everr

    by Alia Webb Minaj


  • Great filters w/ restrictions

    by UpRocka

    This apps strong suite is it's skillfully created filters. What the app lacks it makes up in multi-purposeful filters that work across a wide range of photos which is nice. That said... the app has a hidden fee that makes you pay an additional $1 for the simple ability to process and export photos from your camera roll (kinda lame IMO). I think the devs clearly know that the filters are good enough to make people pay the feature. My only request currently would be to make the controls have more "fine control"... ie. - the vignette is just one hard setting with no option to make it lighter or taper back at all which renders it a bit useless on certain photos. - would be nice to also have a crop feature with various ratios. -------------------------- Found 1 bug: App is crashing upon trying to save to camera roll.

  • Amazing app

    This is the best editing app I've ever had!

  • : : Awesome Camera App : :

    by SoulRocka Nasty Nene

    *** You ARE capable to upload your photos from your camera roll but it's very obvious that a few individuals don't read the details/descriptions before bad mouthing the devs. For a dollar you open that feature up ( what's a buck anyway ). The round plus (+) feature on the bottom right corner is the button to upload photos from your camera roll. Hope this solves the issue for future customers reading the reviews but then again people always find something to complain about. I've been using this app since the first day it came out on the app market. When the weather is nice and sunny, this is one app I always use to take cool vintage shots because of the lovely great filter features it has. I just updated the app and the app is even more sweeter than ever. This app was long overdue for an outstanding update but it was worth the wait because the app is simply awesome!!!. I totally like the fact that you're now capable to upload your own photos from your own camera roll. It was about time the devs added that feature. I love this app a lot and I highly recommend it. Don't sleep on this app. It's a must have without a doubt.

  • Good but could be better

    by ._.

    If you could add a filter to an existing picture that would be perfect

  • Amazing!

    by IAmAwEsOmE2212

    I love this app so much, I use it all the time. Its so worth paying a couple bucks for the extra new filters, because they're really good.!!:)

  • The Best

    by Happy Bird II

    I love this app, when I need effects or a collage this is the app I go to

  • Fix it

    by _Its_meh_:)

    So I don't know if I pushed a button or something but the whole screen is flipped on the app! This is only on this app. When I try to take a selfie my photo turns out to be upside down. To make it normal I would have to flip my phone all the way around:( please fix it

  • Good app

    by Scor29

    It's a good app over-all.

  • Un app muy buena!

    by ScarlethCo

    Excelente app!*

  • Good

    by Arcticjerry

    Everything is perfect, but i cant delete photo right after shot

  • Love it!

    by DrQuest62

    I have always loved this app. The only thing that I think would be an improvement would be to allow photos to be imported into Retrica from camera roll for filtering, and to add a video function.

  • Retrica app

    by Jasmine (;

    I love the new update ! (:

  • Pay.....again?

    by Mondocirkus

    I already purchased this app, tried to save a picture and it tells me to restore purchase or buy for .99 cents.....we'll the restore doesn't work, and I'm not paying again.

  • Hate it.

    by Daddies little girl 16

    I hate the new update. Please change it back to the way it was before. It is way harder to choose a filter. It is harder to work with the retrica album. I can't find some filters and I don't want to have to go through every one to see which one is good.

  • Bad job guys

    by Verysadverydisappointed

    Last version was much better, comfy, and overall you made a bad thing putting too much of everything for no reason, I don't want to spend more time choosing a filter and checking how it looks like, in previous version everything was fine, no, the bigger the better thing not works....make it handy, and I don't see negative filter wt$#ck r u serious?

  • Horrible

    by Gabbyyy1355

  • Filters

    by Stephyy36

    All my filters look yellow

  • Okay

    by Heather Scurries

    Has cool filters, but what app doesn't these days. I bought the pro and probably wasted my money. App is pointless because you can't edit photos that are already in your camera roll

  • Fix it

    by Shollyv

    It always crashes when i try to open it. Please fix this i really would like to use it

  • Help me

    by Dregopwr

    Can't get it to work !! I have ipod5. Doesn't work:(

  • Liking it

    by EmiePan

    So I love all the filters and the range of effects you can do but my only thing is I'd love for it to involve the flash (it may ready and I haven't noticed it) but other than that, I really do love this app!

  • This is the same as the other one!

    by Mackgirl2009

    Do not waste your money on this! You may think it removes watermark but you can do it on the one u don't pay for this one only removes ads.

  • HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by Imreallyangery

    I have the iPod touch the 5th generation and every time I go to use it it crashes...I paid money for this so please fix it ASAP

  • go to choice for instagramy shots

    by zep100

    many improvements in v1.2, including speed. thank you! still a few minor kinks, like most programs, but is reasonably intuitive and offerers really really great filters. most photos captured Retrica seem to come out consistently superior to what I have taken with other big name alternatives, at least for me.

  • Help!

    by Mariahairyanna

    I have the fifth generation ipod touch and when ever i try to use this app it always crashes and never gets to it pls fix this

  • Great app

    by music's best friend

    This Is A Awesome Photo Taking App With Awesome Effects But We Need The Option Of Importing Photos From Our Photo Library Add This Feature And I Will Rate This App Five Stars

  • Retrica pro

    by Marcusgodofswag

    It's good fun nice hd camera

  • Love the filters!

    by kathleeeennn

    They actually make me look semi attractive! I do not take a selfie without this app!!!

  • Flash and Crashing

    by terrixoxo

    To be "PRO" it still Keeps on crashing also and can we please be able to use flash with this app?

  • Ok but needs ability to load existing mages from photo library

    by Techno-nut

    The developer is missing an entire segment of the market by not including the ability to load existing images from the photo libraray. Fidling with different settings, choices, etc, prior to taking a picture is a real pain, and what if you don't like it? The moment is gone. I like the effects, nothing new, but well implemented, just add the missing feature and let's roll. Make sure if and when the load from PhotoLibrary is implemented that you load and save at original image resolution (or as near to it as possible) so that hi-res images aren't rendered worthless by the app.

  • Very good

    by peterweasly20

    i like it

  • Good

    by stevha

    Good not great but it gets the job done.

  • No difference

    by AndrewishIpod

    There is really no difference in this, and the free version. Just a few different filters.

  • Retrica is awesome

    by MOcArtsS

    Me gusta las formas diferentes que se pueden usar para tomar fotos. No es lo mejor pero pues esta bien. ;)

  • Good app

    by Jenny Li

    Convenient to use, good effect

  • Best app so far.

    by Artworkbykris

    I always searching for best app & I'm a pro photo retoucher, graphic designer as well as photographer. I just found this app a few days ago & I personally like this app because its a simple, fun, easy, have good effect & quick. this is combined photo filter app, photo booth, Instagram filter all together. It's awesome but only if you can add few thing if possible then, this app will be the perfect! 1. Import from photo gallery 2. Option for Light, dark n contrast filter after so, u can control brightness 3. Add color palette 4. Textures & thickness option for frame if possible. If u somehow added these options n make them simple looking tool then you are the winner of 2013 app! Overall, great job!

  • Mr

    by Fmumin

    I love the range of filters in the app. The only downside it crashes a lot.

  • Ok, not the app I need

    by hdevil

    This has your basic photo edits you find in nearly every app. The layout is simple, straight forward. Unfortunately, the inability to import photos from your library makes this pretty useless for me. I like to take a quick snap in the moment, then play with features. Not an option here. I'm still looking for an Instagram replacement.

  • Perfect!

    by Devanath

    My No.1!!!
