Need to contact you

I use another of your apps called PhotoFusion. I have it on my iPad Air 2 and have used it on earlier iPads as well. It is the best app for putting multiple objects into a single image. My problem is that this app may not be supported by future versions of iOS. It is not even in the App Store anymore as far as I can tell. I thought I would not be able to update to iOS 11 but now I read that iOS 10.3 is changing its file system and files will be converted to this new format when a device is updated. I doubt I would ever be able to use your app again if I updated. I don't know exactly if you have done anything with this app for a while or even plan to in the future. It would be nice to know one way or another. Yours is the only app that would keep me from considering updating. It's that good even with its tired interface.

Developer Response


Unfortunately PhotoFusion was removed from the App Store a while back, but we've recently released a new app called Exacto, that offers similar functionality with more advanced features and much improved UI. You can check it out.


have not touched this app for years

as someone who uses iOS to create visual material, be it contemporary art or contemporary cultural and personal critique ... or just wasting time in the contemporary cultural landscape, I have lost all need to do so within this app.

it has nothing to do with how the app functions, just a general disinterest in its capabilities over a period of years that has led to its virtual dust and cobweb accumulation. I suppose it has to do with its generally bulky approach to distressing images (which is what it does) that feel confining. a one trick pony.

but if that's what you are looking for, then maybe it's for you. I just can't seem to get myself to find a purpose for it anymore. believe me, I've tried.
