...Has taken me for a delightful surprise!
I just got it today and have been able to create some fine art with their App. If the Developers keep on working on improvements and adding more supplies...they could have a 10 Star Plus app on their hands.

I am extremely delighted with the outcome of my pictures. I use the App mostly on paintings or sketches I do for fun...but the top quality OIL PAINT MY PHOTO produces makes them beautiful.

I would recommend this App highly.

One note...that is...minimal number of pictures are not being accepted at the first try...but a pop up tells you to please come back and try again, later. That, to me, is a positive sign. I think this developer really wants to please the customers with a top rate product. I think they will succeed!!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for the review Margaret. The review really means a lot to me because it's detailed and really gives everyone a good idea of what to expect from the app and how the app has brought beauty to your paintings and sketches!

I like to read such reviews because it gives us a better idea of how people actually use the app. We've used our creativity to create the app and we like to read all the creative ways that the app is being used.

As for the errors with some of the pictures... I am assuming that those pictures are in iCloud or some other cloud service because it sounds like the photo might not be available at the moment for fetching and that they are available later on. I might be wrong, but this is what it sounds like to me.

I say this because I've examined the code of the app and it appear like the error is coming from the photo picker. You can tell if the problem is coming from the photo picker if the error message takes place right after choosing a photo from your gallery.

If this is the case, it's likely due to the cloud service not being available at that very moment. Pictures which are located directly on your device will likely never experience these issues but at the same time, cloud services free up space on your device :)

Thank you again for the wonderful review.
