Truly Inspiring

Every time I get going on a picture, I actually feel like I'm expressing myself. I can use this effects in this app so easily that eventually I can put the precise emotions that I want into the piece im creating. There are so many good things to say.

One thing I would like to see added is that the gradient effects be more smooth in the transition rather than striated. I know this would probably take some real software upgrades but it would probably make them one hundred times more effective and beautiful.

Love this overall. Thank you


Great app, but crashes!!!

App force closes when opening photo library. It is a real bummer because it really is a nice photo app, when it works. I emailed support and they claim to be working on a fix, but they haven't released an update since March 2015. Reading through some other reviews, it appears this issue has been ongoing for some time. I would imagine if it was really a concern to them, a fix would've surfaced by now. I recommend NOT downloading because you'll be bummed and upset when it all of a sudden stops working on you. Hopefully Pixite proves me wrong and a fix/update will be released in the near future...


First app

This is the first app I bought from Pixite and it was confusing at first but once I actually read the simple instructions it was easy to master. The add shape packs also inspired even more creativity. Adding shapes on top of each other greatly enhanced and emphasized what I was trying to communicate with my photos and art. If you're new to Pixite apps I highly recommended this be your first Pixite app.
