What's New

Version 3.11

One of our biggest updates yet! Here's what's new:
• Categories - now you can easily sort between different categories when choosing a template. Maybe you want to create an Instagram story, or a YouTube thumbnail, or something to celebrate an upcoming holiday. Categories makes it easy for you to browse our beautifully designed collection of templates.

• Logo Manager - we've added a section in the artwork tab where you can easily store and access your most frequently used image assets. This is perfect for easily accessing logos and watermarks frequently used in your projects.

• Font Manager - you now have the ability to manage not only your custom fonts, but the default fonts as well. You can find the font manager in the settings.

• The grid has been improved, and is a lot more intuitive and natural - adding increased ease and precision when editing.

• We've added a YouTube thumbnail preset.

• We've improved the eyedropper so you can easily choose the right color.

• New fonts (abril, arch rival, bentham, delis, oxygen, peace, sen, and vast)

• We've also made a bunch of other UI improvements and performance upgrades, we think you'll find the app a lot more elegant to use.

- Fixed color picker not appearing on transparent projects

I already bought this app...


I bought this app when it was new so a long time ago. I’m not exactly sure when. But i purchased it spending money on it because it seemed worth it. I have used the app for years now for thumbnails and such but recently there was an update that made a few of the options “pro options” that you hav stock pay monthly/annually for and I’m not amused. I already purchased the freaking app. It’s ridiculous that after purchasing it you’d have to further purchase it to have the options you once had before the update. I wrote two tickets about this and all i got in response was basically “it’s what comes with the new update. We need to make money” uhh yeah i don’t care I ALREADY PURCHASED THE APP YEARS AGO. you’re gonna lose a loyal user over this and hopefully unless this gets resolved, This review deters other customers.

Developer Response

Hi Bella - thank you for taking the time to leave a review. In order to be able to afford the resources for the further development of the app, we did indeed switch to a subscription model. This allowed us now to be hard at work at our ambitious roadmap!

We completely understand your frustration. Could you please email me directly? I can help you out so that you can keep using all of the features that were available to you before as a PRO user :) (make sure to type .co and not .com!)

How an art enthusiast loves this app


Hi, there! I’d like to share how amazing DesignLab is. I mean, I have always been using art-sy stuff especially when it comes to photo editing with the so called “thought of the day”. If you’re looking for something permanent that you can use, I recommend this. Their pro version is also a worth it try. They are on promotion right now for 67% off, I think? Instead of paying $60 for a whole year or $5 every month, you’ll just pay $20 for the whole year! How about that! I just want to share how amazing and brilliant this app is. Read other reviews and be informed! 🤙🏻

Many bugs, crashes often

W Irving

This app has the best features for modifying photographs, but it simply doesn’t work. For example, it shows thumbnails to select photos from your photo library, but if you select a thumbnail, it will often choose a different photo from your library. Usually you need to click one thumbnail behind the photo you want to get the right one to come up. The projects will often white screen and when you try to save your final product, the result will simply be white screen. The program often completely crashes and I am repeatedly turning my phone off and in to get the app to work even for just a little while. A big disappointment and waste of time, unfortunately.

Developer Response

Hi W, thank you for leaving a detailed review. These are super helpful for us as we are currently working hard on the next update of the app.

Would you mind emailing me directly? I had a few questions regarding what you are experiencing because it's a rare bug report. We want to make sure everything is fixed and working properly for the next update!
