What's New in Version 1.9.7
+ Improved compatibility with iOS 7 (thank you for the reports!)
+ Added crop tool back to the Aviary Photo Editor (sorry about that)
+ Added Flickr open when choosing a photo
+ Fixed "Symbol Regular" font bug
Fun AND actually productive.
Actually has some decent photo editing ability alone, and then stack on top the fun comic type tools make it even better. And the ability for different fonts and styles takes over the top. Even if I just want to add character generator type fonts over a photo...
I think it's worth the price. My only reason for 4 stars because I think there's always room for improvement, there's add ons that have to be purchased if you want them and there's a 2nd version of this app for both iPhone and iPad so I bet there's not going to be many updates from there on out!?!!' I haven't seen any on a very long time.
I still like the app tho.
Great app, great support
I use this app every day for my needs and it's perfect. So many options, very diverse tools. When they did the most recent major update they left out a tool that I used frequently so I wrote an email to the developer asking to bring it back. I'm sure more people than myself inquired about why it had been left out of the update, but regardless a small update was ready a week later that fixed the missing tool. They listen to their users and respond to what they want, that's the sign of a great app with smart people behind it.
I've been using this app for several years and it just keeps getting better. It can truly enhance photos by giving them a journalistic look and feel. It's alsoremarkably easy to use.
