What Does "All" mean anywy?

When the free version is downloaded, you get about 15 effects with maybe 4 of them locked. On selecting one of these, you see a screen inviting you to spend $2.99 (most reasonable) to remove the watermark and have a total of "30+ effects and filters." So I bit, and what I got was just the four filters unlocked, total of 15 just as before. Dunno where the 30+ comes from, but I can't find them. Also, I made the purchase on the iPad. When I tried to unlock the iPhone it looked as though I would have to pay again. Now, this could be due to Apple's somewhat odd bahavior where you have to agree to buy before you see a notice that you've already paid for it. But there is, in this spare user interface, no restore purchases button. Fortunately cheap, a couple of useful filters, but just so-so. Haven't seen the ads yet.

This app is a trap

When I started using the app, I saw all these effects. They didn't look locked so I click on one and sure enough, they say either unlock by leaving a review. I clicked on another one and it says unlock by paying a certain amount. A friend told me once that there is no such thing as a free lunch. It's like you get the basics for free but the nicer effects cost money. I suppose they see it this way: you get a free app, what more do you expect. Another thing is, I want an app that has oil painting effect. I guess this as close to that as I like. Nice effects, just not many choices without paying for anything.

App Not working.

I originally liked this app however while using it the past few days it all the sudden stopped doing anything.I can upload a photo but then my only options are to download the photo or x out of it, It does not give me the options to apply the filters. I have deleted the app and re-downloaded, I have restored my original purchase, and I have even deleted and re-signed up for the app trial period with subsequent purchase. I hate to write a bad review, because I feel like this is just a glitch, but there is no way for me too email or contact someone from the app in order to figure out why this issue is occurring. Very disappointed and hope this problem is rectified soon.
