App Reviews

  • Used to love, but the new update messed everything up.

    By Jinafire Demew
    I’ve been using Polarr since late 2016, and for the most part it’s been pretty great, with a few bugs in between and issues with the quality, but the problems were fixed quite quickly. I purchased Polarr Pro’s selective adjustments in around 2017 and it worked fine, but recently with the new Polarr SO many new issues have risen. The first time I updated it to the new Polarr, it would not let me save any of my selective adjustments. Gradient, color masks, none of them would save. Sometimes it would crash, other times it wouldn’t even save as the filter I had filtered it as, but instead another filter I had previously made?? Recently, a few issues have been fixed but new problems have started. Everything including gradient and radial all work with my purchases but when I add the color scale to a color mask, it doesn’t save. The color mask is still there, but the actual color scale is zero. Please fix these issues, or bring back the old Polarr and work on the new one on the side. So many new issues that me and quite a few of my friends who have been using it for a long time are giving up on it.
  • Great results but a few bugs

    By P.mousse Esq.
    For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it's implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job. The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can't use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn't perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I've been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I've tried.
  • A Favorite Editing App

    By Lost in the feed
    I am a bit of a photo editing app junkie, and had originally downloaded this app amid several others. I got so caught up in the other apps I didn’t spend much time and took it off my device. I noticed it on my cloud the other day, downloaded it and found exactly what I was looking for. Not only does it have the color modifying tools I was looking for (on most apps it is a paid feature) the filters are wonderful. I found the exact filter I was looking for to use on my Instagram, but I almost went with one of the filters in the Japanese photo set. It took a bit to figure out the navigation (and how to add tools to your tool bar) but I am so glad I took the time. I am not devoted to a single app, but this is now become one of my top three editors.

    Polar photo editing app is awesome! Without even feting into the paid version you get a ton of amazing options, filters, effects and tools! Believe me , these are not limited to the Instagram or Facebook or editing photoshop copycats! Polar is professional grade in quality, user interface, appearance and detail. Appreciated the prompts and helper which you can hide if you don’t need or dislike . I found It tremendously helpful. It’s not the easiest app, so I wouldn’t necessarily suggest it to someone not accustomed to some version of photo shop or another editing apps, but with with the helper option you can figure it out and deliver pro -level edited photographs. I am probably going to bite the bullet and purchase the pro version . It’s that good!

    By Sarah - House of Wend
    I have been looking for a pro level photo editing program to use for all the photos I take as a travel blogger. I just was reluctant to jump on he lightroom bandwagon. After reading a ton of positive reviews about Polarr from photographers, I decided to give it a try. Within minutes I was hooked! It is such a powerful tool and the fact that you can use it across multiple platforms is HUGE! I initially had some trouble unlocking the pro features on my laptop that I paid for in the phone app. But within minutes of writing to support I got a response and within 24 hours they had fixed the kink. Can’t beat that! I’m so thrilled with this app and excited to master all of its amazing features!!!
  • Amazing free app without adds that actually does stuff.

    By MDtheAfroCat@DA
    Great app that i’ve been using for ever a year now as my go too editor for pictures. The tools are easy to use and they all work well. Definitely worth the $20 for the pro features. The only problem i’ve had is working with the color mask on areas with large amounts of red, where I use exposure changes to make the effected area easier to see. All in all though it’s a powerful photo editor that will make anyone happy. Only feature it really needs to be perfect is a quick way to pull in other pictures to use as masks instead of using the watermark tool over and over again...which i’ve done before.
  • Lowers Photo Quality

    I really do love this app. I’ve been using it for quite some time now and i have to say it’s super easy to use and it’s honestly so different from other editing apps like VSCO or Afterlight, etc. However i find that when saving my edit to my camera role, it lowers the quality of the photo, which is very disappointing since the edit looks so amazing prior to saving it. It’s like i get a final result I’m happy with and when i save it and check the photo just saved, the quality is not as good as shown on the app itself. Because of this i started to use other editing apps, none of which allow me to create edits just like this app does. So please fix this as i really want to have good quality photos!!
  • Pricing has me concerned

    By MyApplePodcast
    The ubiquity of the new pricing model has me a bit concerned. Before subscriptions, you could at most pay $4.99 outright for an app like this. Now we are asked to rent the app $36 a year or $24 a year if you pay for a year. Even if you paid 5 in-app purchases for $1.99 when using the earlier model, you are still only spending $15 for owning the app out-right. If you plan to use the app for 3 years, you pay $72 to rent. That is 5 times the price and we are still only borrowing it. This subscription model is hard enough with movies and music, but to use this model for every app you purchase? I like trying different apps to see what developers are capable of offering. If I downloaded 30 apps a year using the subscription model, I can be expected to pay $720 a year - just to rent the apps. And that’s not including Mac apps. This is unadulterated greed. It’s a shame because this is a nice app and developers deserve to make a living, but not like this. Unfortunately, I now have to be very selective and I choose not to pay another subscription fee for filters. Maybe Apple’s next conference should be WWCC, a customer’s conference.
  • Amazing app

    By reviewAPPS1904
    Newest update Running very smooth and fast the edges detection works but could be better. ( I used a portrait with a girl & her hands on her face, a two-tone background white with half grey to see how it worked. Now when I used a overlay and blur the effects did good around the hair and clothes not to well when it comes to the hands where the edges are not detected even though it had grey&white background the hands got the overlay& blur effect added to it) Everything else is great and works amazingly. I wondering if you could add a white balance tool thing is I have two cameras that have WB problems dropped it a few times A Simple eyedrop tool that shows rgb Channels with numbers for the pixels if you go over black rgb is 0,0,0 grey rgb is 127,127,127 White rgb is 255,255,255 It's just a suggestion for a new wb tool Original: I love this app it's very well designed and it has desktop editing tools, works great it's a must have app for editing photos on your phone and I love the new UI update less clutter and just amazing app great job everyone 👍
  • Great photo app and good to it's loyal customers

    By F9X
    About a year and a half ago I paid for the app, it's the only app I use for my photographs, i've always love the filters and the choices I can do to make my photographs better. I'm not a photographer in anyway but polarr makes it easy brings the best out of my photographs. I'm also very appreciative that they're not screwing the current customer base who have supported the app over the years. In return I've always recommend at the app when people ask me what do I use for my photographs, people to buy it. Thank you once again for a great app.
