The Totally Best Photo Editor App!

I've downloaded an extensive variety of photo editing apps, but none of them can beat aviary. I love this app! It has just about everything and it's very well organized. I usually never write reviews for an app, but this app really did deserve my time and effort to thank it for its great work. Aviary is having this one event that everything could be downloaded for free! Can you imagine?! A little bundle that cost $1 times the bunch of other bundles will add up to a good amount of money. When I saw this I couldn't believe it and I immediately downloaded everything. Other app will empty your pockets with buying this and that for just a couple of crappy effects. Aviary just blows away the rest of the competitors!

Switched to Photoshop Express

Initially, I was really excited about this app. This app provided some great photo editing features that really made my photos pop. However, after a while I realized PS Express was better. The app also clears all the information from a photo (author, camera make/model, f-stop, exposure, ISO, etc.). The sliders for settings do not have a numerical value such as "contrast +30". This makes it difficult to keep the same settings throughout a group of pictures. Also, there is no locked "0" setting in case you decide to remove an effect. You will find better effects with PS Express including clarity, noise reduction, exposure instead of brightness, and vibrance. Only thing I like more on Aviary is the adjustable vignette and the focus/blur settings. So I will go back into Aviary if I need those effects.

Still good but losing me as a fan

After updating to iOS8 all my effects and frames I'd collected for so long are gone, with no options for restoring. Not the paid ones, those came back, but all the special and free ones that came out (the heartbeat bokeh frame, the bronze & boho effects, etc). I lived by all that stuff, now it doesn't have enough to keep me as a frequent user. Several of the other free or very cheap editors out there are now better. Suggestions for improvement:

1) It definitely helps to have access to all the free items with an Adobe ID (Thanks!) but it's almost not worth it because I have to keep signing in and trying to find my password. Please let us stay logged in.

2) It's too difficult now to scroll through all the filters, frames, etc. Please let us choose our favorites to have a quick list option.

3) Let us adjust the frame width.

4) Give more customizable options to the vignette and focus areas. Like moving the center, etc. Snapseed has a great Center Focus feature, which combines those two, that one is my favorite app for darkening and blurring edges.

5) Let us restore our special (limited time only) effects if we have to restore our device.
