Basic functionality, a few minor bugs
This is a pretty good app for kids to use to manipulate photos. The user interface is straightforward and easy to use. There are a couple of issues that would make it a 4 star app. One major annoyance is that when you delete a sticker from your project it deletes the photo as well. A minor complaint is that it seems to default to editing everything in landscape mode. Although you can easily work in portrait mode, any project you save will default back to landscape mode when you reopen it.
Here are a few feature requests that would make it a 5 star app. First allow stickers to be flipped. Second allow more aspect ratios for common photo sizes (4x6 5x7 8x10) for printing. Third have a slideshow mode for showing off your projects.
Great Idea, but doesn't work
It is a great idea to be able to plug your camera directly into your iPad and download photographs. Unfortunately, as all of the recent reviewers have mentioned, this no longer works on the latest iOS versions. I have an older iPad that is running 4.4 and it will work in that one. Unless you have an older iPad running an older version, don't bother downloading this app since it won't download the photos from your camera. A search of Disney's website does not turn up any information on Disney Pix and there is no way to contact Disney from their website about it, so I am guessing this app is pretty much dead. You can still download photos from the AppClix camera by using the microSD card, but that takes a bit of the fun out of it.
Unable to download pictures
I purchased the Disney Princess camera for my daughter for her first trip to Disney world. The first thing I did not realize was that the built-in connector was not for newer versions of the iPad. I first needed to purchase an adapter to plug it into my iPad. The iPad recognized the camera, but as someone wrote recently as well, the menu to download pictures was turned 90°(and no, the screen rotation lock was not on). I therefore could not access the buttons to actually download any of the pictures. Please fix this! And PS, I tried to use my father's iPad as well, which is an older version. I did not need to use the adapter for this one, but the iPad did not even recognize that the camera was plugged in
