So this is my first review, but the reason I’m going to do one is because I am THAT thrilled with my 2 years of using this app. That’s right, I’ve been using his app for 2 years and I’m still in love. I’m no professional photographer or editor, but I’ve used PLENTY of apps suggested my my friends, some of which actually work for big film/photography companies and do plenty of editing, but I find some of them, while having a billion features, to be overwhelming and not user friendly. Aviary is not only SUPER easy to navigate and use, but it has plenty of features that will make photos look great and make you look like you know what you’re doing when you post to Instagram to try to keep up with all of these self-proclaimed photo-guru-hipsters. I’m in love, and so far have downloaded 5 other photo editors that I ran for a few weeks before returning to Aviary. Overall, I’ve turned quite a few friends over to Aviary from their apps when they ask what I use to edit.

NOTE: I had an iPhone 6S, 7+, and now and iPhone 8+, so picture quality was high enough to note. I’m not sure if lower quality cameras will still deliver the same quality photo. Just figured that might help! Blessings!



Apple should be ashamed of itself for not owning, or even trying to compete with this app. Completely, beautifully, intuitive photo editor app, for very basic stuff. But what basics it allows you to do, takes my good but sometimes flat photos to a much higher level. Gives you terrific color and contrast adjustments. Selective focus is top notch. Focus, sharpness and presets for Portrait, Hi-Def, Food, and night are excellent. Some of my portraits have been greatly improved by the food setting! Images I would have discarded have been made so much better by a few single tweaks! Could only be improved by a tool that would allow you to change backgrounds, and add layers. Fingers crossed that will come to be. Also, addition of metadata capability would be AWESOME (if I missed them, someone please set me straight)!!! From amateur, to promateur, to pro, you can only be helped by this gem of an app!!!

My Favorite App


I experimented with a ton of photo editing apps, and nothing even comes close to Aviary super easy to use. it doesn’t have annoying pop ups like some apps do. It is also super affordable compared to some other apps. I love the flexibility and the function it provides, like blemish fixes, splash option, and other adjustments. Also I could make a Meme, draw on the photo, and use beautiful stickers. I don’t usually write a long review, but this is truly the only app that successfully put all the great, practical, and easy to use functions together. I am not a professional photographer or anything. If you are a casual photo editor like me, however, who just wants to edit photos quickly with easy to use functions, you will enjoy the app too.
