I love this app and use it to edit lots of things frequently, it's one of the only apps that is actually worth it and you can use without having any restrictions. Get this app quickly before it is no longer app of the week bc I think it might not be free normally. Definitely worth getting.

(I don't normally write reviews but this app deserves one) This app is great for anything if you've got a good picture. It's definitely worth the money,but I got it as it's the 'app of the week' I'm still considering wether to buy the in-app purchases-and that's a good thing as I'm quite stingy!

So useful and amazing but...


I use this app so often! It's really cool but recently it's started crashing every time I use it and I can't use it any more! Please help
