Awesome concept!

Would like to give higher rating, but its just tooooo much trouble to try to 'pad out' the source images I want to use: canvas size in Fracture would appear to be 2:3, but source photos aspect ratio is stretched in the output 'painting'...
Again- brilliant concept and it is a one of a kind app, but there is room for improvement. I'd even be ok with the 'bandwidth friendliness' of the output if it was truer to my source photos!

Needs updated for iOS 8.1

I am praying this app gets updated for iOS 8.1 - the app now freezes after you hit Save. You have to force quite the app and start your work over in order to use. This is one of my favorite apps. James, please give us an update! Thank You


This is better than I expected. It is simple to use, but it still offers up lots of possibilities. Cool ap. would be good to use in the art room/cubism lesson.
