Save Bug


I love this app so much~ I really do! Whenever I’m feeling creative I always go to Pixlr to create wallpapers for my phone or just to make some pretty edits. However, the only problem I really have with it is that sometimes it doesn’t save my photo when I’m finished with it. I have a wallpaper I made in Pixlr that is completed, but no matter what I select in the “done” tab, the screen just goes black and exits me from the app. This has happened once before, and now it’s happened again. I wondered if it was maybe because I added too many filters or edited it too much, but that shouldn’t be a reason for it to crash on me. I would really appreciate it if this bug could be fixed to prevent it from happening in the future! And if the bug has already been fixed in an update, I can’t update Pixlr yet since I still haven’t saved my wallpaper. I’ll have to try to figure out a way to do so, though!

Love the Pixlr App, However No Longer acknowledges my Pro Membership

Mark Halsey

I would undoubtedly Rate this App 5 Stars, as I have been a consummate and dedicated User for 4+ years now. The reason behind my mediocre rating is due in part to the fact that, as a result of apparent changes to the Company, or their policies, my Pro Membership is no longer acknowledged.

I attempted to phone the company, however, they only utilize email as a form of contact, reasonable for a smaller size company, not for one who has gained such popularity. As a result, I emailed the company about this, and am awaiting a reply. Having to resolve issues, which could and should have been foreseen, is in and of itself a hassle, especially since too many app developers have, who offer Apps for Apple products, are simply Reactive to consumer concerns.

I would think that customer satisfaction would play a larger role in achieving user retention, especially from a customer who used an In-App Purchase, which is no longer available.

Other App Developers should take note of this, as a means of customer retention. Should Pixlr resolve this matter soon, and without issue, I would certainly rewrite this Review with a 5 Star Rating.
