Could be a good app IF it had clear instructions!


This might be a good app, a great app, even, IF it had instructions. The closest thing it gives is a link that takes you to a web page (not in English) that lists more apps for purchase. I think you can take or select a photo from your album and use it as a filter to take a second shot with, but I was led to believe it would allow me to super impose one photo on top of another, or merge them, even if I was only using photos from my album instead of by taking new photos. Again, THIS APP NEEDS BETTER INSTRUCTIONS!!! I am surprised the folks at Apple approved it. I thought they were supposed to be selective...



This app does NOT say what it says it does. I tried everything and nothing works. On the website for help, all it does is show you more apps in FRENCH . I think this game was a ripoff. I'm deleting it today. I got it 1 minute ago. What's it supposed to do? Is it a scam? How do you do this?!

Confusing, But it Does Work


Okay, as others have said, this app is a bit confusing to use. But it does work if you know what to do, and it offers something no other app offers (that I've found, anyway). Basically, this app puts a transparent image (from your photo library) over the screen when you're taking a picture. Why might you do this? Well, for one thing, it helps you take then/now type photos. For example, you might have an old postcard of a scene in your city, and you want to take a photo of that same scene as it looks today. With this app, you can align the modern scene through the camera with the transparent postcard image and get a good then/now shot.

To do this, first make sure the "old" or "reference" photo is in your photo library on your iPhone or iPad. Launch this app. At the "Overlaying photos" screen, select Album, then pick your photo from the Camera Roll. You'll see your photo now on the screen. (If your photo is landscape, it will appear smaller, but it will still work in the next step.) Then press the Camera button, and you'll see your reference photo steady on the screen as well as the live view through your camera lens. You can adjust the transparency of the reference photo with the slider.

When you align your two images, press the Camera button to take the photo. That new photo now becomes the reference photo (it also ends up in your Camera Roll). I don't know exactly why it becomes the new reference photo, and I'd actually rather it not, but it's just the way the app was written.

Hope this helps people understand and use this valuable (if somewhat confusing) app.
