Editors’ Notes

Prisma’s gorgeous pictures are almost too cool for words, but if we had to pick one to describe our 2016 iPhone App of the Year, it’d be “sublime.” Powerful AI re-creates our photos as breathtaking images that really look hand-painted, complete with natural textures and stylish, spontaneous strokes. The only thing more fun than experimenting with the effects is showing off the results to our friends.


One of the most outrageous premium subscriptions on the app store

In certain ways, things are improving over at Prisma. They're no longer claiming that users were just making up the complaint that a lot of filters used to be available for free but then got yanked behind a paywall. It's always nice when an app developer stops offensively and obviously lying.

Unfortunately, their new excuse isn't much better. Now they're claiming that when users added filters to their library, it constituted a "hack", and that this behavior wasn't supposed to be available in the app. Now look, I get that devs make mistakes. If there had been a few days when the app accidentally let users add extra filters to their library, and then they realized their mistake and fixed that bug, I would understand. But that functionality was available for *years*. When functionality is available for years, and it's totally in the open and not secret at all, it isn't a bug". It's a feature. The devs are now changing their story to defend their insane, outrageously expensive and disproportionate monthly monetization strategy. Here's an idea for how to start building goodwill with your users: stop lying to them and accusing them of misdeeds.

Here's another suggestion: change your monetization strategy to a one-time, $2 price.

Developer Response

1. I suppose that you mean Daily styles. There actually was some kind of hack with which some users could add Daily styles which were unavailable in the library. Yes, Daily styles became unavailable for all people that were utilizing this hack. We understand that some users perceived it as right behavior of our app, it was confusing, we agree and we are sorry. Daily styles mechanic shouldn't have worked this way and we've fixed it in one of the updates. It's a shame but we are unable to bring back these styles. Now Daily styles work as they should be working initially.
2. SD quality processing is already a bit higher than 1080p. The final SD output can be up to 2.2. megapixels and it's free. Flat-rate purchase may be an option in the future but we aren't ready to implement it yet, it's actually a huge change.
3. We have no reason to lie to our community but we agree, there were some misunderstandings between us and our users. Hope they are figured out now.


Could be so much better

When I first signed up for this app, I had no complaint. The filters are beautiful. I love looking at other users’ photos.
But there’s this thing that’s been happening consistently for the last five months. People are getting banned for no reason. They are then told by a prisma representative that they were flagged by multiple users for inappropriate content. But the offending photo is something like a tree, a building or a road. It makes no sense. And it takes days and tons of e-mails back and forth to resolve the issue. When prisma support finally realizes the user has been unfairly banned, their explanation for what happened seems like a cop-out. The solution to this issue seems obvious. Have a prisma rep check out the “offending” photo before banning. But it’s still going on.
I paid for a year’s subscription to prisma before this started happening, so I’m still an active user. But I probably won’t pay again once the year’s up, if this issue isn’t resolved. If you’re thinking of paying for the full prisma app and you’ve made it through this whole rant, you might want to think twice.
