  • Definetely the best/ crashes

    by Yer awn muthr

    I'm using this to make album covers, and the ONLY problem is that it crashes randomly, but not much.

  • Nice effects but buggy

    by William Webb II

    Crashes a LOT

  • Very impressed

    by iOfficialReviewer

    One of the best photo editing apps out there!!

  • Great

    by Arto.Movs

    Amazing app.

  • Finally!

    by Average Tweeter

    Sharing via text!

  • Use it more than Photoshop.

    by CameraFanMan

    Would like to see numbers on the sliders and be able to select a whitepoint with an eyedropper, but thats nitpicking. Brilliant.

  • Needs an undo button!!!

    by 4575437

    Love the app but once you finish with any editing option, you can't go back. Also if you accidentally choose "done" you either save it as is or have to start completely over.

  • One of the best!

    by Lasvegasmtg

    One of the best photo editing programs available. Easy functions with multiple capabilities to take any photo to the next level.

  • Coooool

    by mike zeffa

    Great tool

  • ;)

    by Maxmator

    Love it!

  • Perfect!

    by Firestar798

    I really love this app! I use it all the time for about 90% of the photos I take. It's very smooth, looks amazing, and is very useful and has good quality. I recommend this app to any iPhone photographer or just a normal person. Totally worth every penny.

  • Great quick and easy editor!

    by 5502

    Love the ease of use and many options. Also love the Walgreens direct upload, very convenient!

  • Shush shahs

    by Jgee3

    It is great

  • Nvm just lagged

    by ThomasHarris007

    Nvm it has a sh1t3 ton of dloads just lagged

  • Perfect

    by Random70007

    Great app, I just wish you didn't have to pay for extras

  • For the love of god...

    by Ethan Whited

    Add an UNDO option it gets annoying when using the blemish and whitening tools.

  • Great

    by J-k-e

    This does everything I need it to do and more. I have the ipad/camera connection kit so I can use this app anywhere. Great filters and effects to make any photo look like a pro took it. No complaints at all.

  • Good app

    by Rickyfulg

    Lots of options and user friendly.

  • Love this app :)

    by Limesunshineblu

    For the person saying that there is no undo button, just don't hit the save button. Change to a different option like brightness without saving the last change & it will undo it. I got frustrated with the blemish doing nothing at all since the last update but you fixed it. Thanks! I think it's the best one I've used.

  • I have a report to do!!

    by Cod_killa

    I cant even open the app it keeps crashing! Please do something quickly!

  • No no no no

    by Capachinoo

    I liked the version before. It was better to draw. No everything is ruined im so mad I want to undo the update

  • Photo-shopper 3

    by Photo-shopper 3

    This photo-shopping app has many bugs that need to be fixed. If the purveyors of this app don't know what the bugs are, they have even bigger problems.

  • Can't save to camera roll

    by Amy A.I. is DEA

    This is a fantastic app, HOWEVER for such a great app there is one glaring omission. You can't save your creations to the device. So weird since their other apps allow it.

  • Best among the rest

    by Ibenic

    I've tried a number of these photo apps and this one is the best photo editing. Have more features and easy to use. Thanks

  • IAPs Adds UP!

    by MagicalRealism

    You are better off getting Awesome Camera! or Camera Plus. Both are offer superior filters that are cheaper. Removed sharing to Tumblr

  • Omg omg..

    by Inshaa

    Omg omg ..

  • Aviary

    by Awesome Ash #13

    Love this app! It is really awesome and I L❤VE all of the editing effects! It is really cool and it is a must have!! I definitely recommend this!

  • Amazing.

    by @kuriouskristyx3

    Edits make pictures look beautiful and it's super easy to use. Really reccomended.

  • Needs some improvements

    by Natalie803123

    This app is actually AWESOME!!! But, whenever I wanna add text to the photo it just disappears or it's not in the right place so please fix that...

  • Just ok

    by Rissamayer90

    Could be better

  • Doesn't save

    by Chevy085

    I love this app but after I'm finished and click done it just completely closes and returns to my phones main menu. A bit irritating, I had to redo everything, take a screen shot, then crop it. Also, adding an "undo" button to an editing app would be appropriate and very helpful. I'll make it 5 stars when these problems are fixed. Especially the not saving one. Thank you!

  • #1 out of all the photo editing apps I've had !

    by L153tt3

  • Great app!

    by nobi811

    Occasional crashes but seems to be fixed now. Greater range of editing than other apps.

  • Cool

    by Jbchatt


  • This is great

    by Gabrielie Collot

    This app is really good, you can make thousands of different combinations, you should definitely download this app!

  • Used to love it

    by Mpfbutler

    I used this app to edit all of my photos of my children. Since the update, I've lost the editing tools I used. When I asked about restoring them I was told it wasn't an open because they were only available for a short time. If I purchased the packages, I should be able to still have them.

  • Aivary

    by JerryMoBozo

    This app provides more photo editing opportunities than any other app I know of. I spent a long time looking for the perfect photo editing app and it payed off with this app. Thank you creators!

  • Best app!!

    by Kakaroto82

    I love it

  • Not sure what's happening...

    by Volunteer queen

    I've tried to purchase a bundle, at first wouldn't let me and would bypass my request. I deleted and downloaded again, then it says my Apple ID and password are wrong. Well, it works on everything else still. Not sure what's happening.

  • Nice

    by andi marie

    It's a cool app to start. Photos turn out clear and more dramatic. Be nice if more features could be added.

  • Amazing App!!

    by Andy413

    I'm pretty picky when it comes to photography and any edits. This Application is the way to go for great looking creative photos.

  • Great app

    by Nicole_almagro

    -wish it had an undo-button -easier option to pick pics. -app is so good I wish they had something for videos or to make vids from pics -LOVE THAT IT DOESNT HAVE WATERMARK or to represent this app blocking our pics like a lot of photo editing apps

  • I like it

  • Has it all

    by Kennedy Y

    Really great app it has wonderful features. Color splash can be difficult to use but steal a great app

  • Can't save to camera roll

    by Amy A.I. is DEA

    This is a fantastic app, HOWEVER for such a great app there is one glaring omission. You can't save your creations to the device. So weird since their other apps allow it. I also wonder if this creator even cares anymore. So many people have mentioned this issue and still has not been added.

  • Terrible

    by FromJB

    Can not push directly to G+ and or save to camera roll. It's so antiquated in its UI/UX that you only have to option to push to Walgreens to print photos, so much for on the fly social media. They failed miserably with this one.

  • Very cool

    by JayDotThomas

    This is a really good app. Does what it's supposed to do and a lot more. I can't tell u how many times I've edited Batman slapping Robin and putting funny stuff in the speech bubbles. Lol.

  • Excelent!

    by Sonya Argiro

    Very good app!

  • Love it

    by Diamond likes this game

    Favorite photo editing app, it's got it all so it's the only one you need. Also very little lagging or crashing.

  • Nice and cool app

    by Vthallap

    Gives lot of options and very east to use. Edits and makes the picture perfect. Love this app !

  • Useful Tools, Needs Better File Share

    by Ayi 1

    The editing tools are great. I don't use the stickers or similar functions, just the clean-up. I am frustrated that there aren't built-in functions to store to Dropbox & other common cloud storage. This is rather limiting an otherwise go-to tool.

  • Love it but wish for more frames

    by Mamilne

    Love this app. Use it all the time :) I do wish it had a better selection of frames.

  • Great App

    by Uitori

  • Great app! Easy to use.

    by Osione

    I love the interface design. It's very easy to use and navigate. Photos come out great. Thanks!

  • Needs instasize feature

    by asmileforjenna

    This app is amazing, but the one thing missing is an instasize feature. I would love to use one app only to edit my photos and resize them for Instagram without having to crop them.

  • Love!

    by Childeofglass

    Best editor I've found yet!

  • Great app, but glitches

    by Jknaub

    This is a great, easy to use app! But currently there is a glitch that makes it close right away! If they could just get that fixed i would rate in 5 stars! Bug-fix update please!!!!

  • Poor app...reduces quality of your pictures

    by MS user9

    I was looking for an app, that I could edit some of my pictures with, while this app has a lot of good features, it reduces the quality of the picture which ruins the purpose of what I was looking for.

  • Terrible

    by screenjunkieD

    It was a fantastic app but it won't even open. It crashes every time immediately!

  • Could be better...

    by Michelleee_

    There's no undo button.

  • Decent

    by Volleybeth

    The editing was great up until it crashes every time I hit done to save the photo. I was expecting more from this app. Disappointed.

    by Pussywetter69

    This app is awesome i use it all the time but it would be awesomer if there were a photo merger. Thanks for this awesome app and keep up the good work

  • Amazing

    by MialuvMusic

    This app is an amazing editor, better than the basic editor that comes with some computers. Only flaw, & it's rather big, is that it doesn't save correctly in photo roll, but I just email it to myself to get around that.

  • Great app!

    by Golfpro237

    Works very well and is great for on the go editing! Easy to share on Facebook too. Just wish it had some more brush stroke type editing. Love it!

  • Look no further!!!!

    by sisterofjared

    I'm an artist so I know my artistic apps. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS APP!!! Aviary was amazing online and now makes a powerful editor as an app! I edit every photo I post and Aviary makes it easy, beautiful and fast! Love love love! No complaints. I've used Aviary for years! GET IT!


    by Ccjj06

    This is a great app but I'm so livid right now. I just put a half an hour into creating something by hand with detail and the effing cancel button was accidentally touched and instead of it verifying if I wanted to cancel or anything like that it effing started me with a blank slate!! So mad!! Fix this!

  • Awesome

    by Carissa_who

    It's great! Definitely worth the download! Bet editor I've used
