Ratings and Reviews

Not the Full Version & crashed phone


This is a test version of their full app. It only syncs 15 contacts and/or downloads 39 pictures. After you get those pics, it asks you to buy their full app to get all the pictures.

Plus, after downloading, my phone would not connect to Internet or the App Store. Even after restarting phone. I had to delete the app from my phone in order to get back to the App Store to write this review. Buyer beware!

Really cool app


Best app to add captions and emoticons to your pictures. You can also create pictures collages and add multiple effects. I love the send by SMS and twitter. Job well done!

Simply amazing emoticons!
