I’m sold

So this is my first review, but the reason I’m going to do one is because I am THAT thrilled with my 2 years of using this app. That’s right, I’ve been using his app for 2 years and I’m still in love. I’m no professional photographer or editor, but I’ve used PLENTY of apps suggested my my friends, some of which actually work for big film/photography companies and do plenty of editing, but I find some of them, while having a billion features, to be overwhelming and not user friendly. Aviary is not only SUPER easy to navigate and use, but it has plenty of features that will make photos look great and make you look like you know what you’re doing when you post to Instagram to try to keep up with all of these self-proclaimed photo-guru-hipsters. I’m in love, and so far have downloaded 5 other photo editors that I ran for a few weeks before returning to Aviary. Overall, I’ve turned quite a few friends over to Aviary from their apps when they ask what I use to edit.

NOTE: I had an iPhone 6S, 7+, and now and iPhone 8+, so picture quality was high enough to note. I’m not sure if lower quality cameras will still deliver the same quality photo. Just figured that might help! Blessings!


Adobe Photoshop Express AD

I’ve used Aviary to edit all my photos sent from the iPhone since it came out. 5 Star performance. The latest update offers a connection to Adobe Photoshop Express that pops up. To get Express you have to create an Adobe account. I’m doing so Adobe uses your information for their purposes. I tried Express but found the menu of features are the same as Aviary except with filmstrip images, which only clutter the menus trying to use it and results in taking much more time editing. I deleted Express then tried to delete the Adobe account because I didn’t want to give them access to my data. Short story there is not a way to delete the account without going through a lengthy process with their Customer Service. I find this unacceptable. But now the problem is the Express AD keeps popping up in Aviary multiple times when editing. There is no way to kill the AD. To me that is an attempt to force the user to install Express whether you want it or not. Not Acceptable Aviary!!! Before deleting Aviary I’ll wait until the next update to see the annoying AD is removed. If not I’ll find another app to replace it. Without the AD’s very annoying presence, Aviary is 5 Stars, but is totally destroyed with it, so now 1 Star and recommending to look for another app that doesn’t throw AD in you face.


Adobe ads are ridiculous-uninstalled after years of using this great app.

I hate to write a bad review. But I’m doing so in the hopes the devs will see this and eliminate or at least minimize the ads in the new version. I have used Aviary for a few years now above all the others, I even prefer it it to the full desktop version of Photoshop for filters and my social media posts. But today I deleted it after trying to edit a photo; so many Adobe ads, and then another ad popped up in the middle of trying to save my edit. I couldn’t tell if the image saved or any confirmation of my changes - there was no close button on the ad and I had to reboot my phone to get rid of it. I just uninstalled, not worth the trouble. The constant pop up has made the app unusable and aggravating. PLEASE get rid of this “functionality”!. I’d gladly pay for the app without ads, but what used to be a 5-star is now a 1 only because I couldn’t give it zero stars. Very disappointed with the way Aviary has implemented these ads. You have a chance to save this app but if you are constantly forcing ads on the user people will just uninstall like I did. I really hope you will turn around on this and bring usability back to a great app.
