Very Cool App - Extremely Useful

Overall I am happy with PhotoCandy...It works very nicely and allows you to do A LOT with an image, contingent on how far your imagination can take it.

My only complaint is that a decent amount of the features are only available if you purchase them. Don't get me wrong—you CAN do a lot with this app without buying anything; but I do wish it was [at the very least] a little bit cheaper..maybe like $0.99 or $1.99 tops. I know in-app purchases are inevitable once an app reaches a certain level of complexity & [creative] potential..but I do think that the full version should be repriced for a more accurate index of it's value.

Regardless, I love it—the FREE version—and am not at all disappointed with the app itself.

If you are debating on whether or not to download it, let me make that decision for you—DO IT. I have spent literally hours looking for an app that does exactly what this one offers, and I am certain that PhotoCandy is more than top-notch compared to its counterparts in such an inexpensive range.

Get the app, you will not be disappointed. And if you are, then you can always delete it.

But I would bet my left bellybutton that you'll keep this beautiful piece of mobile software; this baby has the approval of the NorthEastern Gypsy King himself—me.

No, I am not a real gypsy. That title just sounds cool.



There are quite a few really neat features.

Unfortunately, the erase tool, which was one of the main reasons I got this particular app is not that great. You can change the size, but you can't see under your finger to what you are doing. Other apps have a pop up screen that shows what's going on under your finger.

You can zoom in for detail work but you can only zoom into the exact center and can't move to the edges at all. I tried everything I could think of to make it work, but nada.

The shape tool is great and it has a huge amount of options which is nice. I like the starburst ones and the word ones. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out how to layer them other than save and then open the saved image to add to it.

Patterns. There are so many and some really cool ones. Unfortunately, that only helps if you want it across the entire image. The erase tool only works on a section and then that section is repeated across the image. Very frustrating.

I'm kind of mad at myself for paying for all the upgrades. Which, if the eraser worked better, wouldn't be a problem. I would be quite happy. The eraser not working for patterns and not being able to see what you are erasing brought it down from a five to a two. :(

Actually love it

So, despite being bribed to rate it in exchange for use of more locked items, I would give it a 5 star rating regardless. It is awesome. No other app like it, and I am very picky about my photo editing apps. Great work, my only criticism would be there are too many locked items, I think this app would be one of the best in AppStore if only we had free access to more items... Or at least have the ability to unlock without having to pay, such as sharing or liking, etc.
