Ratings and Reviews
I use this app all the time. I have enjoyed using it very much. There are two problems with it.
Sometimes when I am applying multiple effects, it crashes the system.
Also, the last update took away one of my favorite effects. That was the rectangular splash.
I would recommend trying this to see if you like it.
Gets the job done
I appreciate something simple some times. It will get the job done.
Refined piece of software for the price.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
