Great App!

Agent A1

This app is very fun, easy, and creative. You can make any picture or video on your Apple device into cool art. I wouldn't say it looks exactly like a sketch but its pretty amazing considering a computer made it! This app is definitely worth your money if you want to enhance your pictures with a cool aspect of antique goodness! You can also submit your pics to the HALL OF FAME to see if other people vote for your creation!

Only Temporary


This app worked fine for about the first month and a half and then the completely started to crash. I have emailed the developer however to no avail! If this bug is not fixed, the app is completely worthless.

Had this major issue not have surfaced itself starting a couple weeks back, I would give this app four stars. It still lacks some details which other photo editing apps have

Great app--until it started crashing


I have had this app since Nov 2012 and really liked it. I have used it quite a bit. A few months back nearly every image I imported into the app started causing the app to crash. It didn't matter if the image was old, new, large, or small. Finally, today I contacted the customer assistance link, only to be told that the email address was no good. Is this company no longer in business? If so, why is the product still for sale?
