Customer Reviews

Great app and design - way too many bugs

This app has great potential - lovely intuitive user interface, and super easy to learn your way around, all while retaining some serious technical chops. I’m mostly annoyed at many of the glaring bugs that are all over the app.
* Crop and straighten never works right away. The rectangle is usually confused, and gives a poor indication of the current crop.
* Applying the same adjustment might cause different results over different sessions - I have noticed that some basic adjustments might not turn out the same over repeat sessions might procure differnt resukts, and sometimes with heavy errors on the image.
Many more around opening and saving photos.

I’d be willing to try once the software is fixed.

Great App - Saving Error was fixed

Polarr is a fantastic app. Great functionality lots of tool and easier to use. Great alternative for some light photoediting and great enhancments without the need for complext/expensive software like photoshop.

The saving/export issue has been fixed.

Best replacement for Lightroom

This app is awesome and it makes easy my workflow. Easy to edit multiple pictures and batch export it! Definelty worth the $19.99!!
