I know this app was free but I'm going to complain regardless. Here goes: I was browsing AppAdvice and found what seemed to be a cute and fun app--a snow globe into which you can insert a photo of your own choice. I thought, "Wow, what a neat way for me to show my 9,000 miles distant boyfriend how goofy in love with him I am!" It will not let me insert his photo. It wouldn't even allow me to scroll through my photos to get to the one I wanted. I had to email the one I wanted to myself and then save the image so it would show up in the last few rows of the photos in my album, which are the only photos the app will allow you to access. Waste of time. Once I got the picture of Mike to where I needed it to be in order to select it, I then chose it only to have the app immediately crash on me. Several times I tried to put him inside this snow globe, but it crashed each and every time. This really is a nifty idea for a nonsense little app but I expected it to do what it claimed it would. Developers, could you, would you, please fix this? Bacon is just fine for breakfast but who in the sam hill wants it inside their snow globe? Not I! I want my boyfriend in there.., hehehehehe...boy, do I want him inside there. : )
The swiping for erasing needs too much pressure. Picture can't be resized once it is in the globe. It would be nice if you could save your snowglobe image to your photo library
Cute idea but.....
It's a very cute idea. But you can only put one thing in the snowglobe! You should be able to move things around and size them. Otherwise, very cute.
