Customer Reviews

It NEEDS Instagram Filters!!!

This is a review of the in-app pro version upgrade ($9.99)

Flume Pro only needs 2 things to be perfect….
1. It needs the actual Instagram filters rather than the filters from apple Photo Booth.
2. It needs a bigger photo editing interface. When editing a photo before posting It the interface is way too small to see details in the photo (especially when cropping). The photo editing section should show the photos at least as big as the app shows them on the feed.
The app doesn’t have Instagram filters and doesn’t have very many editing options other than croping, which is far from precise.
The reason I gave it 4 stars, in spite of it’s shortcomings is because of how beautiful the app is, and the visual simplicity of its design. I honestly like it better than instagrams design.
All it needs is the ability to edit photos the same way instagram does before uploading.

This is not a review of the free version.
The free version is basically an Instagram-viewing app and has no uploading abilities.

What a Scam

This app is advertised as a free limited-use app with the potential to upgrade to the Pro version but in reality, it will not let me upload even one image unless I immediately upgrade to the $9.99 Pro version. Ridiculous!

From what I’ve seen, this app presents a clean interface but sometimes clean can be too clean. I would like to at least see the poster’s name and image description. As this app is designed, I have to clickon each image to see who/what/where. Which is no big deal because I can browse IG on the IG app or via Safari, but I had high hopes this would make uploading easier than using an iOS device. And it may very well be the answer to my problem, but the fact it forces you to upgrade without trying is just incredibly irksome.

Deleted the app.


its so pure. it sees a need, and it fills it, and it is the ONLY way you can keep up with ig dms and its settings are robust and fleshed out.
for a mere 5 dollars it will allow you to fully upload from your computer! nobody else in the world ever EVER has made something like this. I would have paid 15 dollars for this app, the developer is amazing. adding support almost a DAY after a new macbook or a new ig update. i could like comments on here before i could on my phone. a single person did all of this. THANK YOU SO MUCH
