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.

Very Good


I try to take a photo every day. It is very easy to take, view, and make the video. Also good if you don’t need to make a video you can keep track of stuff like acne or sunburns. Suggestion: be able to import and export photos. Also should be able to use outside camera. Bonus it also shows you yesterday’s photo under the one you are about to take so you can line your face up.

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 :)
