Useless app and not free at all

This app ISN'T free. It's a "lite" version that is incomplete unless you fork over cash to see the full version, so it's deceptive advertising to say that it's "free". That seems to be endemic to the "app" store. Stuff is advertised as "free", so you download it and when you go to use it, you have to pay in order for it to really work. Pah! Be honest, already. This is only a partial version of a "for-pay" app, so buyer beware. You only get a very small sampling of this app in the "free" version. Kinda worthless unless you want to plunk down some of your hard earned cash, and even then, it doesn't allow you to enlarge the pictures of the examples given. In other words, a total waste of your time. Don't bother with this useless app.


I agree with SLBurnell's review written in January of 2012. T'is merely a lite version (barely), and even though it says it is suitable for ipad it is VERY blurry and useless for that device. IMHO, it isn't worth the effort to download and then have to delete. :(

I do feel that all "lite" or "demo" apps should be required by Apple to list that in the title. Magazines, even reputable, are notorious for putting out "free" apps that are strictly for ordering subscriptions, and are not even a demo!

What you see on the download page must be in the paid version, and is NOT what you see in the demo. What you DO see are eight blurry photos, and what few photos and little bits of text you see in the "lite" version are so blurry as to be totally frustrating and useless. And as SLBurnell states, you can't even enlarge the image!

As always, BUYER, BEWARE!!!

Complete waste of time

I wanna rate this -5 stars
It's a trick app where it all seems free but you can't do anything unless you purchase the full version
It kept taking me to the home screen every 10 seconds anyway :(
