Great app!

Very well done app with frequent updates. The app is simple and straightforward to use and well worth the purchase price(s).

Only “complaint” is that the photo saved to Photos/iCloud Photo Library does not include location/gps information. You can add the location after taking a pic, but this is only added to the app’s copy of the photo and placed in the exif data under ‘user comment’(?). This works within the app just fine, but it leaves the copy in iCloud library without the location.

Love it

This is a great app, and I love using it. All my friends were curious about it and I always recommend it. I especially love how when taking my photo, I can actually line up my face with previous photos so I’m in the same position and the same distance away from the camera. The video is really fun to watch, and I love seeing it grow longer as I continue to use this app. Five stars :)

Very nice app


I’d like to see an effect when switching from picture to picture like it warps or it fades in the face using facial detection.
It would present the video with much more drama specially for people who don’t take daily photos like once a month

Thank you I hope i brought something good to consider
