4.0 out of 5 stars fun January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun app and you can create very effective images. however, the photo changes size slightly when it reverts to black and white so when you recolor it goes back to the original size and creates some distortion. I have a kindle fire and maybe that is why. hopefully an update will resolve this problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be better June 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
I am a little disappointed with this app. I have been looking for a photo effects app where I can have a pic that's mostly black and white with a few colored areas. I'm not sure what that type of picture this is called, but I think it looks really cool. The sample pics look great, so I was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately it let me down in a few areas.

The good:

Gallery: I didn't have a problem loading images from my gallery. Down along the bottom menu there is an icon you can click that looks like a Polaroid picture with a flower in it, that's how you load from the gallery.

Features: Pinch to zoom is great, but it took me a while to figure out that you have to be in the "Move" screen to do this. There's the ability to change the brush head, size and softening of the edge. Also a good selection of background filters like sepia, vignette and color tints.

The bad:

-Saving: I either can't figure out where my picture is saved to, or it's not saving. But I click the little icon at the bottom for saving and that's the last I see of my image. Also no ability to "share", which is a major disappointment for me.

-No instructions: This app isn't very intuitive, so I would really appreciate some instructions and tips. Nope, there is nothing in the app to help you along.

-No back button support: It's habit for me to use my back button and it exits the app. This is just plain annoying because I keep having to go back to the menu to reenter the app.

So, basically I'm still looking for my perfect app for my needs. I will play around with this a little more and hope for updates that fix the issues I'm having with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work quite right. June 30, 2012
By RSM61

I have other photo apps that do the same thing and this one just doesn't work correctly on the Fire. It didn't seem to want to take input commands most of the time, and sometimes when manipulating photos, it would create a second photo slightly offset from the original. decent concept, just need to work the bugs out so it works right on the Fire.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't save pictures July 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
Put this on my Kindle Fire and it seemed to work fine, until I tried to find the pictures that were saved. Eventually they turned up in the Photos/camera folder (they should be saved in a different folder), but four of the five saved pictures were blank. Please fix this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Intrusive piece of crap June 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Didn't work right at all. I uploaded a picture no problem, but when I went to color the area I wanted colored, instead of filing in the color it was supposed to be, it actually copied a different part of the picture to that spot. I used a picture from my son's birthday where he was sitting on the living room floor opening gifts. I was trying to colorize the wrapping paper. Instead of doing that, it copied the tv that was above & behind him. Not only that, but it would only let me color one specific spot on the picture. So, what it did was color a perfect square right below my son with a copy of the tv from the top right of the picture. Stupid. So, I scrapped that, exited the app, turned it on again, & tried a different picture. Same thing...instead of coloring where I wanted, it copied a different part of the picture to one little square at the bottom left.

That would be bad enough, but the real kicker was when I went to uninstall. I noticed the app was running in the background. I forced closed & uninstalled immediately, then got into my files & deleted anything potentially associated with this app. With such heinous permissions, I was wary to install this as it is, but did anyways just to try it out. Never again will I do that. Potentially harmful & definitely intrusive permissions, the fact that it didn't work, (there's also no instructions, & it seemed very slapped together,) & the fact that it kept running in the background, (no I did not, nor do I ever push the home button to close an app,) makes me think this app is doing exactly what they claim they're not...mining your data. It seems like it would be a cool app, but it's not worth it. Please think about this one before installing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work right September 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
I finally found where the pictures are saved after an hour of looking for them. When I found them only the top half of the pictures were saved, no bottom half at all! It was a complete waste of money, on a product that I cannot return. Bottom line it doesn't work on the Kindle Fire HD.

It'd be a great app if it didn't cut off the lower 3rd of my pictures while saving.
