Nice app for beginning hipsters
It's nice unless you want to control things like aperture/sharpness/temperature etc. It looks like an expanded version of Instagram. I have been using afterlight for a long time and so far have not seen anything better. There are a lot of controls and filters, I personally don't really go after the super hipsterish look. I also have picfx, which mostly has the same features as mextures. So unless you're a super avid hipster, already have several apps like afterlight and picfx but still want more, don't bother getting this one. It doesn't really add anything new.
At the same time, if this is you first picture editing app, it's a nice start - it's easy to use (you don't have to bother about all the extra controls I personally like in afterlight as it resembles a little version of Photoshop)
Fun and original
When used properly, this app can add a powerful effect to the right photos. I noticed one reviewer said something about it being for hipsters,---sure, I've seen examples of that. But a little goes a long way and there are just as many examples of it being used beautifully and without irony. I've found I use the grit features the most, and primarily on landscapes. And the app developers themselves even say, a little but goes a long way. Or at least something to that effect. Worth trying, I use it on about a third of my photos that I share.
Still has lots of bugs. Example when taking a photo then when asked to crop them or not the word "crop" is way below the screen. The words are way behind on the actual use, for example when starting all over again, the word cancel will just appear after you have already started all over again. Still haven't used it that much, just wanted to see the new filters, which are nice. But come on, I've used the app just for seconds and look at the bugs. Using iPhone 4s btw.
It appears that the said bug only occurs when taking a photo within the app not when choosing a photo from library.
