Great app - I purchased the upgrade!


I’ve been using this for a while now, and it’s my go-to app for image searches. When I’m going to make a meme, or give a pic response on social media or chats, I always have been opening this app.

I realized that I rely so much on this for online activities, I went ahead and paid the $5 for the version 2 of the app. I wanted to let the developer(s) know what a great job they are doing!

Recent change spoiled the app


I have been using the app for a long long time and when they introduced ads I could understand they needed ads to keep the app going.

But what has happened recently is there's ads in the photo viewer. Having ads on the search screen is ok, having ads on the search results screen is also acceptable, but when you show ads in the photo viewer it just spoils the app experience for us.

Edit after a month: Fake Update description:
App Dev released 2 updates recently which said that now full screen viewer is available but what cheat ! There's still that ugly ad bar under the photo viewer. Full screen viewer huh ? Does he even know what full screen means ?

Was 5 Stars


Well I believe in being fair. I contacted developer. As letter below indicates. To my great joy the app is working perfectly again. And I said would raise back to 5 stars and I have. Much thanks.👍🏼

Believe it or not this was at one time simply outstanding. Did everything intended and did it well. Then Google stopped working. I though ok, the others still work. Then suddenly one day Google search back. Then I realized I lost over 2,000 pictures. Since then, every time I tried to access the pictures they CRASHED THE APP.

I contacted the developer and they were polite, prompt and sympathetic. But could not promise that it could be fixed, in part due to aging coding. So until I get my three years of collecting pictures back, has to stay at 1 star.😩. But if fixed, will Change rating back to 5.
