Do NOT purchase this app subscription
by tryitonemoretimeyouidiot on 2019/11/21 10:25
The developer has no clue how to restore your purchase and will charge your subscription without giving you access to the full app. Good luck getting your money back. I’ve engaged myself as attorney to file a class action suit. These people are a joke!
Looks cool but a rip off
by Neteru9 on 2019/11/20 04:13
I purchased this app and when I upgraded the iPhone, it won’t restore my purchase👿 It hangs in limbo with spinning wheel and does nothing. The network is fine. I’m typing and posting this while your app is still spinning.
Empty shell of a once great app
by Buckfunster on 2019/11/19 06:40
When I purchased Prisma, there were at least 20 themes one could choose from. Now there’ve dwindled to fewer than 10. Sorry, I didn’t count before starting the review. What used to delight, now disappoints and annoys.
Horrible App and a SCAM
by peytondz on 2019/11/18 00:48
My free trial came to an end, which i forgot to cancel because i deleted this horrible app. I went to cancel, and because i missed the deadline by one day, was charged for an entire hear’s subscription... what a joke. I want my money back. I want no part of this subscription
Crashes on opening
by Waugh2k on 2019/11/17 20:14
Once the best app on my iPad, Prisma is now dysfunctional, so away it goes. Voted off the island.
Won’t even open...
by gizmo6791 on 2019/11/16 20:54
You open the App tap (Next) Tap (Next) again and it shoots down awesome... time to delete ...
Prisms app
by Rawpancho on 2019/11/13 15:52
App Ever
Takes forever to process adding a filter
by kml shoots on 2019/11/13 04:59
I do love this app, but have stopped using it lately since it takes soooooooo long for the filter to apply to the photo. Not sure what the issue is, at first I thought too many users at the same time so I would try different off-peak times and still have the same issues.
Ads
by TimidTrader36 on 2019/11/12 14:27
Subscription invitation is intrusive
So buggy!!!
by carolinaspirulina on 2019/11/11 04:13
This app has some amazing illustration style filters. It’s really sad that it’s incredibly buggy. I have to reopen the app about 8-10 times for it to work. It’s horrible!! Please fix it as I will definitely buy it if all is fixed.
Does not honor paid subscriptions!
by sassyflier on 2019/11/08 20:35
Do not do business with this developer! I have paid for subscriptions twice and they have yet to respond or correct the issue.
Greedy developers
by MikeyBanas on 2019/11/07 01:41
It was a great app, then the developers got greedy. $30 a year? Ridiculous

From GREAT to GARBAGE
by Alienbutt on 2019/10/31 03:05
I first got this app a couple years ago & thought it was easily one of the best. I just reinstalled to find ALL of the filters I’d previously used & “Favourited” are now locked behind a premium subscription demand. I’m not sure if us “Sheeple” are too stupid or just don’t care that this newest app dev business model is ruining the App Store.
Free trial and I quit
by OldSilvah on 2019/10/28 21:45
The app is full of bugs. Keeps on crashing. Library will not load. They have nerve for charging an annual fee for an app that doesn’t work.
Update 10/27
by xStrangeAllies on 2019/10/28 01:30
Some of the filters STILL don’t work so what bug fixes did you put in the update?
Look like an artistic god
by AgileSeattle on 2019/10/27 20:41
Take pictures and give them a completely new look. I don’t know how they get results back so quickly but I would love to trade bank accounts with the guy/gal this toowho figured it out
Broken
by Boulder Beast on 2019/10/27 15:41
Constantly gives “something went wrong, try again in a few minutes.” Used to be a fantastic app.
Love it

This is a great app for playing with my photos
Not Free!!!!
by Sprucecreekfly on 2019/10/26 14:05
These people are lying to you. This app is no longer free. It costs $29.99 per year. Used to be free. No longer. Beware!!!
good app
by dubtrees on 2019/10/26 13:29
app is good! :)
Another subscription...
by jdoumecq on 2019/10/25 16:26
We will end up with our whole life relying on subscriptions. This one is almost the price of Netflix or Adobe... LOL Seriously? And on top of it, they want access to our privacy. We should be able to charge for that. Deleting this kind of App is restoring freedom
great app but...
by imnotats on 2019/10/25 14:19
i do think there should be more options for those who cannot afford the subscription service, and i do feel like it is shoved down our throat
Paid for last year...
by Bal gal on 2019/10/25 04:55
I love the looks of this app! My subscription was about to expire so I thought I had best try it out before renewal. It wouldn’t let me use it and I paid AGAIN just to write you a note. Not happy.
Great Stuff

Nice App
by jazziz755 on 2019/10/20 20:40
I never get tired of the different ways a photo can look.
Greedy
by Musicman from Kansas on 2019/10/20 05:18
When I first used the app, you could use a small number of filters for free, now you can’t use it at all unless you pay them every month. No thanks.
Love App but RIPOFF subscription
by LuisCContr on 2019/10/19 22:05
My subscription was supposed to go through nov 2019 but the app will not start unless I choose a resubscription option and it’s only October 2019.
PRISMA is my Favorite!!!
by RozzyV on 2019/10/19 22:00
Love Prisma!!! Cool effects easy to use and save images. Very cool app!!!
App not compatible with iPhone 11?
by Jausel on 2019/10/19 21:28
I loved this app until I got an iPhone 11. Now there’s no way to dismiss the screen about subscribing, so unless I pay for it (which I don’t intend to do) I guess I can’t use it.
I'm basically addicted to Prisma
by erotema on 2019/10/19 04:15
I'm not sure how many other apps out there do similar filters and effects with photos, but Prisma was the first that I ever used, and I absolutely love it. You can make some of your photos look like gorgeous paintings and styles of art with a ton of variety. I even use some of the effects with uploaded video game screenshots to make some truly incredible looking images, even though the free version of the app reduces the maximum image resolution quite a bit. I've never paid for the premium version of the app, but as much as I like to play around with the free filters, I've considered it - there are dozens more filters on the paid version, and there's even a daily filter that gives you something new every day. Really, I love this app, and it's helped make some of my favorite photos and moments in my life look even more interesting.
Crashes way too often.
by McD1970 on 2019/10/18 22:19
Used to be great. Now it won’t even work anymore. Can’t even use the app more than 2-3 seconds before it crashes. Totally useless. Everything on my end is up to date, after the last update the Prizma app won’t work.
All the colors
by volcano gail on 2019/10/18 13:51
It is mostly about the colors for me. The texture changes are often not a part of my vision. I can get lost in here. The HD version means you can print them as wall art. I see them in galleries. I have them on my walls. Pretty amazing.
Stopped working
by Aspiring piano player on 2019/10/17 15:13
I suddenly was no longer able to access the photo album. The app became non functional. Reinstalling didn’t work. Contacted support and all they say is they know there is an issue are working on the problem. Don’t buy.
So much fun
by hillmark444 on 2019/10/17 04:32
Try this product and enjoy hours of play
Gallery won’t load
by EarthSci on 2019/10/14 17:53
Looked like a good app, but when I tried to open my photo library, after giving it permission, it wouldn’t load. Just blank squares. Having a large library I know some apps take a minute so I waited... and waited. Three minutes later, nothing. It might have great features, but if it won’t load my photos, it’s worthless. Deleted.
I LOVE THIS AP
by MdJGutierrez on 2019/10/13 16:13
I wish I could get it on my computer.
It used to be great
by CraftyAllie on 2019/10/12 19:11
App used to be amazing, but suddenly its locking me out of 90% of the features I used to use and demanding I give them money. Massive disappointment. If you want people to pay for stuff, add more features. Don’t take them away.
Camera gallery doesn’t load
by Dangitjeff on 2019/10/12 18:57
This app is super rad. There was an issue at first where it wasn’t loading my photos in the first 24 hours, but the issue seemed to have resolved itself thankfully!
Prisma very slow. Has to connect and upload your photos or it won’t even work.

Potential, but falls flat
by Sengoku_us on 2019/10/08 01:16
The Good: - Some nice filters. - Supports iPad in landscape mode. The Bad; - Requires online processing for HD filter images (I think people with the latest iPad Pro’s should have more than enough processing power to do this offline! Give us the option! - The Gallery button just loads up a blank page. Not sure if this is supposed to access your photos library? - Possible bug. Need to be able to process photos that weren’t taken with the iPhone/iPad camera. The Ugly: - Signs you up for a one year subscription when you agree to a 3 day trial. No was to test the app without this. So BE CAREFUL! After agreeing to the trial, go straight into your subscriptions and cancel the trial. You can still use for 3 days, but you won’t be stung for a yearly subscription if you’re not paying attention. Summery: Overall I’m not too impressed with this app. There are better apps Out there that do a better job (without the sharing abilities built into this one - but I’m not too concerned about sharing with others). No option to tweak/edit the supplied filters is also a let down.
Don’t bother!
by gonzo222 on 2019/10/07 03:10
It fails 9 time out of 10, stuck on rendering, and is useless. This on an iPhone 11pro, so no lack of power, just lack of good coders. Look elsewhere.
Disappointed
by Lsato19 on 2019/10/06 17:09
I’ve used this app before the updates but I tried it this week and it just keeps freezing. I can’t take a photo, can’t use my own photo, and can’t even cancel the trial subscription. I’m very disappointed and frustrated.
Terrible
by lijkik on 2019/10/06 12:01

Won’t load from my icloud photo library at all
by Strooper on 2019/10/06 07:01
Useless on my iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone X, iPad Pros. Refusing to open iCloud Photo Library. Hasn’t been fixed in over a year. Worthless now that its not compatible with current iPhone photo libraries. Programmers send me an email I’ll send you a video of it not working on each device! In the mean time I’m deleting this waste of space.
App never works!
by Hipchixster on 2019/10/05 19:10
I have an iPhone X and I’ve deleted and reinstalled this app several times to no avail. It freezes up as soon as you open it and you can’t click on anything. I’ve closed all other apps, still won’t work. Waste of my money!
You broke it
by Oooweeee on 2019/10/04 20:02
Can’t close out ad to buy subscription. Fix soon or I’ll be deleting app
What once was good got greedy
by UtahN on 2019/10/04 15:26
So this was great. Was an original user from years ago. Now I can’t upload images from my photo library. Also if I don’t pay the annual or monthly membership fee then it just isn’t working with the latest version. It appears they just want to capitalize and make more money. Greedy. Too bad, now I will go find another image FILTER app.
Nice app to alter original style of photos

New version doesn’t work
by Waiting4better on 2019/10/03 12:48
The newest version no longer works. I can ope the app but it automatically disappears after 2 seconds. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. iPhone 6s running IOS 13.1.2
No image upload
by dudeapps on 2019/10/03 07:07
You’re forced, even with the subscription, to use photos you take within the app. Seriously missed opportunity here.
Great app!
by Deadhead Jon on 2019/10/03 04:40
I have had this app since the early days of it and love it. It takes some practice to be able to know what will look good with which filter and it’s become almost impossible with over 500 filters to choose from. Sadly one of my favorites from the first version no longer seems to be available. What happened to the “Caribbean” filter? Bring it back please!
Not what it used to be...
by vini gger on 2019/10/02 20:50
Used to use this app all the time and mess with the filters for free now when you try to use it you can’t get rid of the full access which is very upsetting
So long
by JohnsonViki on 2019/10/01 01:03
Why does it take so long to do anything??
Total Ripoff!!!!
by Fixit on 2019/09/30 12:07
Don’t try it. It is not at all free. It signed up for the “free” trial only and tried to cancel within hours of signing up. They charged for a full year of the “premium” subscription. $29.99 waste. This is a model of how these companies rip you off when you are not looking. I contacted them to explain and ask for a cancellation/refund and they said “ Unfortunately, we cannot cancel the subscription. We'd love to, but Apple does not provide the opportunity to app developers”. I am fighting this issue out of principle. We will see how they respond.
A bit much
by Ncouncil on 2019/09/28 03:16
8.00 a month is a bit steep for what is essentially a pile of filters. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million apps out there that provide filters. Many with far more features than this and many of those available for a one time purchase price of 4.99 - 15.99 or with subscriptions available for .99 - 2.99 per month. I’m feeling like you guys have a somewhat inflated sense of the demand you purport to supply and at this price, I will not be one of those you serve.
Niiice👍
by deeazee on 2019/09/28 00:40
Interesting effects to reinterpret your photos! I’m spending lots of time enjoying these possibilities!
Update equals charged subscription??
by acr040905 on 2019/09/26 16:54
Thats crappy for an app to change that quickly.
Ideas and Inspiration
by legacyandlunacy on 2019/09/24 19:52
Prisma creates images so rapid it helps inspire my projects. I haven’t been painting long and haven’t really found a style or motif to call my own. Prisma filters help me get new ideas for what I might like to try with an image. It never turns out like I expect, but that’s okay.
Endlessly exploitative
by Sabinical on 2019/09/23 06:13
Prisma still seems to think it's a good idea to charge more for a month than 99% of apps charge to own them outright forever. Someone get these guys a monetization specialist to explain the price curve and walk them through how aggravating and insulting your customers isn't the best approach.
Great app needs some simplicity

Awesome but lots of bugs
by Heather Cegielski on 2019/09/21 23:32
My app freezes up. Too many bugs right now. I am waiting impatiently for Prisma to update the issues. It’s a super cool app when it’s working correctly.
Downloaded and immediately deleted
by TheBear94 on 2019/09/20 00:49
This isn’t a review about your app’s functionality, it’s a review to point out the audacity of setting your free trial period to THREE DAYS. I’m all about utilizing a trial period and then paying for a subscription if I really like the product, but I’ve never seen a period set so short in a clear attempt to charge you $29.99 before you remember to cancel.
This app..

by Mikel J. Wisler on 2019/09/15 17:03
Knock it off with the subscription-baaed apps. I might actually buy this app outright for a reasonable price, but I'm not about to get milked for a monthly subscription to some silly app.
Bummer

Does not work - Freezes
by Off the cancho! on 2019/09/11 00:07
I purchased it a year ago and still does not work. Every time I try to load the photos it freezes. I uninstalled and tried agin and still does not work. I contacted support and they did not get back to me with any solutions. Don’t waste your time

This use to be one of my most treasured apps but they've ruined it.
by RedRoseAlways on 2019/09/08 16:13
This use to be such an amazing app but they've screwed it up with all the updates so it is unable to handle my large library so I can no longer import pictures and even use the app. They became so focused on monetizing the heck out of this app - it's no longer functional!!!! Deleted. What a shame. It was good once.
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT
by twilightgirl47 on 2019/09/07 04:04
I used to love this app because you could decide what percentage of the filter you wanted to apply to your picture, now you either get 100% or 0%. what a goddamn disappointment.

Not very interesting
by zydecogrl on 2019/09/02 21:49
Originals look better than Prisma versions Looks like all the more interesting filters are “locked”!
Meh
by mr ichard on 2019/09/02 00:27
The styles are old and don’t do much to alter the content. The new subscription service seems predatory with the free but need to cancel in 3 days or you’re charged $29. I wanted this to be good but it’s the same thing it was 2or3 years ago but shadier.

Fantastic app that accentuates your photo into an artistic print.
Love the effects. Too expensive
by Sneefle on 2019/09/01 08:58
Love the effects (hence 5 stars) but the user experience is shot to hell by the constant, pushy, and frankly over-the-top pressure to purchase the subscription. I’m uninstalling because it’s insulting and ridiculous. I hope other people voice the same opinion enough that you realize it is a huge turn off. I don’t want to subscribe to a service that isn’t a f$@&@ng service in the first place. I’d gladly pay $20 for this as a one time purchase. $30 every year? Get real... actually not giving 5 stars. That just sends the wrong message and doesn’t incentivize the right moves at all. Adjusting now.
Something is missing
by judygruhn on 2019/08/31 23:22
Where are the adjustment sliders to fine tune your selection? You say this is possible but I see no sliders. Just downloaded the app - vs 3.13 I believe. This is a bummer because the description definitely mentions the ability to fine tune. All I can do is swipe right or left to adjust strength. I hope you see this and respond soon or I may have to cancel my subscription.. Three stars at the moment...

Charges for subscription even if you delete it!
by Beau_n_sheets on 2019/08/27 15:34
I downloaded the app, decided it wasn’t what I wanted and then deleted it all same day, within minutes. I was billed for a year subscription without ever using the app. This is just bad business. I also removed it from my subscriptions on my iPhone within the 3 day trial period, still got billed for 30$.
From great to awful
by Smolix on 2019/08/26 15:48
I used to love Prisma. Now all the good filters are gone. I understand that freemium is what they picked as business model. But if it turns into nag-ware and cripple-ware the ‘free’ ad-supported part becomes unusable. Thus nobody will bother paying the eye-watering price for a subscription. Good riddance. Uninstalled.
Don’t bother
by rbarr2 on 2019/08/26 01:54
At one point Prisma was an amazing app, one of my favorites. It doesn’t even work properly. Can’t even get to my albums to get it to work anymore. Yes, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, but nothing. Guess it will be deleted from my phone.

Great app but too many limited restrictions for the free account
by AlchemicKnowledge on 2019/08/20 14:56
I like the app but saving at SD is too limiting and there is no middle ground between free and $30 year. There is no reason why an out like this should be subscription-based but I get it, everybody in the industry is going for the cash grab for Subscriptions. I would love to see this ad for five or $10 and be able to share it with my wife.
Ruined it
by MrDCoop on 2019/08/19 14:24

Cancelled my subscription
by EcuadorChica on 2019/08/14 12:11
I was an early user of Prisma and I loved it. Since I got my iphone 10, I signed up as an annual user, but now I can’t use Prisma at all. I’ve made sure everything is connected properly but none of the screen prompts work. I cannot even get access to my photo library or shoot photos. Not only have I lost one of my favorite apps, I just threw $29.99 away. And worse yet, there’s no product support you can easily access. The only time I see any support show up is when someone posts a bad review. Hope this gets their attention because I feel robbed.
Not at all pleased
by MrsArmstrong2016 on 2018/12/31 02:21
For an app that I pay for I expect much better than I am getting! When I first got the app and the subscription, it was wonderful and I loved the filters and the creative options it gave me. Now I need to close and reopen the app in order to use it after I do the first filter. I get the message “Something went wrong. Please wait a moment and try again later.” Then I can do maybe one or two more before getting the message again and having to close and reopen the app. And staring today I cannot use it at all, I continually get that message no matter what filter o try to use or how many times I restart the app. I even deleted and reinstalled the app with the same issue. I know the monthly payments are not terribly high, but I am very choosy about the apps that I pay for and my expectation is that if I am spending my money I should be able to use the product I am paying for so very disappointed with the situation and thinking of getting rid of my subscription and the app all together. I do not like to waste my money.
I'm basically addicted to Prisma
by erotema on 2019/10/19 04:15
I'm not sure how many other apps out there do similar filters and effects with photos, but Prisma was the first that I ever used, and I absolutely love it. You can make some of your photos look like gorgeous paintings and styles of art with a ton of variety. I even use some of the effects with uploaded video game screenshots to make some truly incredible looking images, even though the free version of the app reduces the maximum image resolution quite a bit. I've never paid for the premium version of the app, but as much as I like to play around with the free filters, I've considered it - there are dozens more filters on the paid version, and there's even a daily filter that gives you something new every day. Really, I love this app, and it's helped make some of my favorite photos and moments in my life look even more interesting.
Could be so much better
by realanniethecat on 2018/08/11 15:01
When I first signed up for this app, I had no complaint. The filters are beautiful. I love looking at other users’ photos. But there’s this thing that’s been happening consistently for the last five months. People are getting banned for no reason. They are then told by a prisma representative that they were flagged by multiple users for inappropriate content. But the offending photo is something like a tree, a building or a road. It makes no sense. And it takes days and tons of e-mails back and forth to resolve the issue. When prisma support finally realizes the user has been unfairly banned, their explanation for what happened seems like a cop-out. The solution to this issue seems obvious. Have a prisma rep check out the “offending” photo before banning. But it’s still going on. I paid for a year’s subscription to prisma before this started happening, so I’m still an active user. But I probably won’t pay again once the year’s up, if this issue isn’t resolved. If you’re thinking of paying for the full prisma app and you’ve made it through this whole rant, you might want to think twice.
Prisma is a great app with lots of potential...
by Altair Abdul Khabir (Kyle) on 2019/01/12 10:47
...I recently did the 3 days free trial of the premium Prisma subscription, as before now I’ve always been a free (SD) user. Now many of these filters are amazing and give your photos a painted or very interesting style, however, the built in camera is lacking greatly in manual controls, in the fact there aren’t any controls other than tapping your shooting area (to define auto focus and exposure) and your shutter button. Due to this, if your natural lighting isn’t bright enough, then typically the filters will not work as well. Furthermore, after playing with many of the filters and adjustment settings, as well as flipping back and forth between SD and HD mode, I don’t see much of a difference in quality. So for the base price of $4.99 a month, I’m lost as to where all these features are that make up for forking out the extra money a month and/or year. If Prisma can update it’s camera mode, and add more adjustment features I’d certainly be more willing to pay.
Not bad, but…
by Gitarzz on 2018/06/06 03:29
This is a cool app. It's got a lot of cool filters. Your images won't really look like paintings though. They'll look like altered Photoshop images but they'll still look really cool. I had a crash issue just before writing this review. I fixed it by shutting down all apps on my iPad and then restarting the iPad. That seemed to fix the problem. I think the problem I have with this app really isn't with this app in particular but with all photography apps now. They all seem to want a subscription. I already pay a subscription fee. I pay $10 a month for Lightroom and Photoshop. Currently the most advanced photo editing software on the market. The iPad and iPhone just don't have the processing power to keep up with Lightroom and Photoshop. So apps on these platforms perform one or two functions or a group of simpler functions that Photoshop performs... but demand 1/3 or 1/2 of the monthly price. If you pay the yearly subscription for Prisma you're still paying about 1/6 of the price for filters that you have no control over. No adjustments, no sliders. Yes, you can adjust the opacity of the filter, but that's it. Having said all that, I pay the yearly fee. It's taken some of the cool out of the app but I use it a couple times a month. At two times a month I'm paying about ¢80 per use. Take that into consideration. It will give mostly satisfying results overall. Take that into consideration too.
Privacy, privacy, PRIVACY!!!
by InfinityFields on 2019/01/25 05:30
I wanted to try this App to see what kind of great photos I could create with the filters, but the first thing I was bombarded with was a Privacy Update that I must agree with in order to use the App. After reading about all the data this developer and their third party friends collect about each user who is using the app and what websites they go to, I decide to immediately delete this App. I have become more turned off by how developers are asking or better yet PUSHING users to give them free reign over collecting personal data about how you use the App, your device and what websites you choose to visit. This is not in my interest to give them this information so they can send me ads tailored to my interests. Guys leave my personal data out of your app or give me the choice to ban you from collecting it and I may use your app. However if you choose to force your customers to agree with something they are not comfortable with granting.... then you will obviously find less people willing to use your product. Count me as one of those people!!
Loved until latest update 🌹 revised
by Judidee on 2018/07/28 02:01
Slowly and truly I love to Prisma so very much- I got the coolest effects, just updated it and only have the option of about six filters and everything else you have to pay for and you want to charge a monthly fee. No way. There are other photo editing apps available and I think going from one extreme to another is just not fair to your loyal customers. You were great, and now you’re not. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 thank you for the response I appreciate it yes the old filters were hiding in the I would never have looked. I can use the app the way I used to, but again one little criticism I don’t like every time I open it wanting to be asked to pay for it. And I really would pay something I just think what you’re trying to charges too much when there’s some great free apps- again thank you.
What I love about Prisma
by Media Slut on 2018/05/01 15:09
As an artist, I have found the Prisma app to be a fantastic tool, especially when it comes to understanding more about color relationships, the various mediums and where lights and darks should go in a painting. It offers many interesting filters. I like some better than others, but they seem to cater to many levels of artistic taste. One filter I particularly loved, called Abstract Portrait, disappeared one day and I wish it were offered again. Please consider restoring it! A friend and I are thinking of having an art show featuring our Prisma images. We have many wonderful ones. I would like to see more fine art filters, e.g. Van Gogh, O’Keefe, Hopper and other great colorists. Thank you.
Really cool app; really un-cool business model.
by WAGinWNY on 2018/02/08 21:32
I have been buying iOS photo/graphics apps for a very long time now, and this one produces some of the coolest finished products I have ever seen. BUT, unless you pay for a monthly subscription, you cannot save in “high resolution.” Therefore, it converted the 4032x3024 image from my 8 Plus to a 600kb 1792x1344 one. If you are creating stuff for texting or to post on a website, then that is not an issue. But if you want to save your image so as to be able to incorporate it into a print someday, you are SOL without the monthly subscription. Further, some of the filters are apparently owned by third parties, and launch begging pop-ups when you go to use them. I really like what you can create with this app, and would gladly shell out a flat fee for it. But I will not pay a monthly fee for something I might only want to use every now and again, and I didn’t buy an 8 Plus to work with .5MB image files.
Unable to log in account and Prisma unable to email verification
by L❤️V THIS!!! on 2018/11/18 22:33
I am very frustrated and disappointed with Prisma and the Support Team. I just got a new iPhone and can’t log into my Prisma account. I have typed in my email address for verification, Prisma instructed to check my email but I haven’t received their email verification. I’ve been trying to log into my account for 2 months now and was unsuccessful. I have reached out to Prisma Support Team and they said it must be in my spam box. I’ve checked every single email in my spam box and it’s not there. I sent them screenshots of my profile to let them know that my account is still active and to look up the email linked to my account. The Support Team said they can’t look that up do to piracy. I am being charged monthly and I am unable to access my account. I find it hard to believe that such developers would not look up my email address but charging my account monthly. It’s such a shame!
Do you want my money or not
by flerpy derps on 2019/01/05 03:57
If you give someone a free trial to lure them into buying premium you don’t make it so hard! Howbout that? I think “hey I wanna try this out see IF I’ll pay for it first.” and of course it’s some ordeal that already requires my credit card before I even get it? At least make a faint attempt at seeming nice while promoting. “Hey hope you like it premium sure is good. If you end up liking it enter your information we’ll get you taken care of” you might say- I should not have to even think about paying for a free trial. I should think “wow now that I’ve tried this I sure do appreciate it and would like to pay for it.” What a colossal failure of customer retention! I should be asleep by now but I’m waiting to figure out and barely expressing my frustration toward trying to attach my credit card to a FREE TRIAL. Your vanilla version by the way is pathetic and I will hereby delete it. You can expect no premium from I nor anyone else who wishes a free trial and is discouraged at first glance.
Very satisfactory results at a hefty price of time and money!
by Pompom & Sheila on 2018/03/19 03:37
At first it was great because it had very unique offline "filters". After a while I thought it was still great because the effects were still unique and suited my preference compared with every other IOS app offered out there. Then it just kept evolving until it had a library of effects and HD. I don't know if it will work offline anymore. I guess everything does come at a price (about $20) for an annual HD access. Downside is it takes a quite while to process!! if you were meticulous to details you'd want to try just about every effect. Beware: it is battery draining even for my iPhone 7 Plus!
Please add scale slider for paid version
by Phrannest on 2019/06/12 04:30
I think I figured out what the trouble is with the legacy filters! They ARE the same filters, they’re just applying at a much smaller size due to the increased resolution (I appreciate the increased resolution). One thing that would be great for the paid version is a scale option for the sliders, to affect the scale at which the filter is applied to the image. I’m really enjoying all the other sliders! Would also love a true rainbow color shift slider for bold effects. Right now there are two resolution options and often the lower one is the bolder image, but it can’t be exported at the higher resolution, which has the filter applied at an extremely fine grain.
Another good app gone to subscription
by kintri on 2018/07/13 17:42
I had purchased the premium of this app quite a while back. I hadn’t used it in a while and went to go show a friend how cool it was and it looks like they want me to signup for monthly or yearly. I really don’t mind if apps start out like that from the beginning so you know what you’re getting into. When you pay a premium for an app it should be yours. All these apps doing this add up to sooo much money that this model is going to fail. No average consumer wants to pay $20 annually to run pictures through filters. Maybe $20 a year for a OS or critical service, but these price points are out of whack!
And yet again this app is completely worthless
by gurlcatrider on 2019/06/09 18:30
When I open it it either does nothing or allows me to take a picture and then does nothing. It has a red number on it as if it’s trying to tell me something but I have not been able to get access to any information from this app or make it do anything since the last time I wrote about it. As someone pointed out this is something I paid for and has proved to be almost entirely worthless. If I could get my money back I would . in fact please give me my money back!
A great app!
by Cuppycake Sugar Love on 2018/11/14 13:06
UPDATE: Prisma has done some updates. Thankful that some of the glitches have been worked out. I love the yearly fee and all the filters I have access to. I’ve been able to make some incredible photos with this app. Prisma has a bunch of really great people on it and I feel like a world traveler being able to see Hong Kong, Italy, Australia, Korea, the Netherlands, and many other places. There is a community with in Prisma and am proud to call them friends. We pay for Prisma app and my husband was just banned. Banned means you can still see others posts but you can’t post, like posts, or comment/like posts. We have written to Prisma and he is still blocked from the app.
Changes in their privacy notice-beware!
by wizard2day on 2018/06/02 23:03
I love the great features, but when I went to use the app, the privacy policy has changed. I have just deleted the app from my iOS devices because while I don’t mind that I agree that they can access my library of photos so I can adjust them and change them while I am using the app, I do not give my permission to use my personal data to send to anyone of their choice. Once a person clicks on the top agreement to give permission for access, 2 other boxes appear to check mark and if you do not click in those other boxes, the app will not work. Very manipulative on their part. That permission was not there previously. They just lost a customer and in this day in age of information exchange or stealing of personal data, I don’t agree with their changes in the privacy policies.
AWSOME
by Pete1945 on 2018/03/28 16:05
This is so much fun and it can add serious artistic content i will sketch in another app run the image in this program looking for effects I always find something that i like. I have posted a lot of work here and have loyal followers it is a Good community for me to get out my expressions and find feedback. I love the international worldwide feedback i also love seeing my corespondents work it is all terrific. So what else is there i think we have a lot in common Russia and Texas are big open places populated by creative souls this is one way for us to be friends.
Subscription required
by Noooooopppppeee on 2019/01/29 05:36
You’d think for an app that requires a subscription, the quality would be better than others. I decided to give it a shot, and tried the free trial, after editing one photo I decided it wasn’t worth it and immediately went to my iTunes to unsubscribe. However, the app has their own issues, and now has me signed up for a one year subscription. Though I figured going through iTunes and the app would be good enough, I also cleared my data with the company which you can do under settings. This didn’t help in the slightest as it hasn’t changed anything. I haven’t used the editor since the first try and would not recommend because of how much of a hassle it has been for an app that isn’t any greater than its free competitors.
No longer works. Update; working now
by Dragon18000 on 2018/09/03 15:15
Only 3 filters are working. I click on filters and it will go through the usual process of ' creating artwork ' and when done there is no change to the photograph. I uninstalled and reinstalled and same. It's been doing this for a couple of weeks now. Is it just me ? Update. I uninstalled it about 7 weeks ago and reinstalled it last week. Working now. It didn't work when I uninstalled and reinstalled right away last time.
They charge you after 3 days
by snibbs1420 on 2019/07/11 14:27
Warning: this app is NOT FREE. If you download this app, beware you’ll be automatically charged after 3 “free days of use”. I contacted them and they said they can’t do anything to refund my money and I need to contact apple, which I will do. They said “We are sorry if subscription model turned out to be confusing. The free 3-day trial subscription is automatically followed by annual premium subscription if you don't cancel it. It is indicated on the payment screen, we warn our users each time they activate the trial.” I don’t remember seeing an activation screen but it’s possible I breezed through it excited to check out the app. Anyways, users should know this app costs money within 3 days, so unless you want to pay, I’d avoid downloading this.
This is why you don’t want to update apps...
by ekolok8 on 2019/03/31 02:31
I used to have a lot of fun with this app, and a few of the filters became my favorite go-to treatment for photos...now it seems to be completely unusable. I don’t mind paying for apps, I understand the value in it for the right apps-but recently it seems like we get hosed by developers. Some of these in-app purchase amounts are insane for stuff that stops working. Hopefully they get this figured out...used to be 5 stars for me, but now 2-as a nostalgic courtesy.
Incredible results… when you get them.
by RansomedNBlood on 2018/03/21 12:39
I really like the results I get with the Prisma app. The wide range of filters and the fact that you can vary the intensity is really cool! The process is painfully slow however. Many times you get a message to check back later because the servers are full. Other than this it's a great app... if you need another monthly bill to add to your collection. Buy a different app that you don’t have to pay monthly for.
Potential, but falls flat
by Sengoku_us on 2019/10/08 01:16
The Good: - Some nice filters. - Supports iPad in landscape mode. The Bad; - Requires online processing for HD filter images (I think people with the latest iPad Pro’s should have more than enough processing power to do this offline! Give us the option! - The Gallery button just loads up a blank page. Not sure if this is supposed to access your photos library? - Possible bug. Need to be able to process photos that weren’t taken with the iPhone/iPad camera. The Ugly: - Signs you up for a one year subscription when you agree to a 3 day trial. No was to test the app without this. So BE CAREFUL! After agreeing to the trial, go straight into your subscriptions and cancel the trial. You can still use for 3 days, but you won’t be stung for a yearly subscription if you’re not paying attention. Summery: Overall I’m not too impressed with this app. There are better apps Out there that do a better job (without the sharing abilities built into this one - but I’m not too concerned about sharing with others). No option to tweak/edit the supplied filters is also a let down.
Used to be good- updated yourself To uselessness
by BKLA on 2019/07/14 19:04
This app is fantastic. Great filters did a lot of great cool things. You keep updating in every update makes it more and more is useless. Now doesn’t even open I open the app and it freezes every single time can’t do anything with it it’s kind of a mess. Don’t tell me did I update. I have the updated everything I want an iPhone X I want the latest iOS and the latest version of the program. You fell into the same trap that everyone else dreams. Update yourself till the thing doesn’t work anymore. Don’t fix What isn’t broken already, developers!
What am I doing on Prisma?
by Occasional reader on 2018/11/10 22:07
I still don’t know what I’m doing, but so far just playing with it, I’m impressed. I’ll figure it out. Then, l’ll get really good at it. I love playing with photos! There are so many things I could say about it, but I’d rather say it with... let’s see, I’m not so good with words, if only I communicate a different way... maybe with ***music*** I love music. I know nothing about music. Let’s ditch that idea. What other ways are there? There must be something. Oh yeah, l’ll say it in pictures. Beautiful photographs. That’s what I’m thinking of — Prisma pictures.
This app is cool...in 2016
by Rocketbosszach on 2018/05/25 05:07
Prisma is in a gray area for me, so I feel like it should get a score that reflects that. I loved Prisma when it came out. It was so interesting to see your photos become paintings, sketches or whatever. It genuinely was a marvel at the time. But since then, not much has changed. The quality of AI interpretation hasn’t really gotten better and now they limit you to low resolution demo images and a much smaller bank of filters unless you give them $20 a year. Do I believe that developers should get paid for their work? Of course! But Prisma fails to build on its original thesis from two years ago and brings no further innovation to the table.
Nope can’t do it!!!
by TurbanChin on 2018/04/15 14:22
I have had this app since it was invented back when I had a iPhone 6S... I now have an iPhone 8Plus... that’s 4 years!!! Back then this app was “free” and the absolute best app for turning your photos into real impressive fabulous fantastic pics that wowed me and people I showed every time!!!!! That was then, this is now... 4 years later this app turns into a paid subscription app monthly!!!! Nope can’t do it!!! [You] could at the least give those people who originally downloaded your app first, within let’s say the first 6 months to 1 year, at least give those people the app for free!!!! Geez. Or a flat fee, I would pay 2$ maybe 3$ for this app!!!
Beautiful Processing, Inefficient Interface
by seekerspock on 2018/03/21 01:38
It processes pictures awesomely and the feed is a great way to see other people's creations. (As most feeds are.) The only major problem is that there's no way to search for anything specific within the feed, like another person's profile page. You have to go through a Byzantine process to find someone if you don't follow them, and it can take a while. It would be nice if they added a search engine. Also, they took a whole bunch of filters that used to be free and hid them behind a paywall because that’s fun, I guess.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️DOWNLOAD
by JoshNintendo on 2018/01/25 01:52
If you want an app that can add cool filters to your photos (maybe videos too I’m not sure), than you NEED THIS APP! I was skeptical at first, but once I started using it, I was making 10 copies of 1 photo because it has so many amazing filters! And it’s so easy! Just select a picture, select a filter, wait for it to load while it filters it, and there! Now you have an amazing photo! Beautiful, high-quality filters, all simplified into a super easy-to-use app.
A little sad
by Agent 47 on 2018/04/07 19:29
I’ve had Prisma since it came out. Early adopter. I don’t use it often as I used to, but I loved that they didn’t follow the crowd of ad and subscription supported apps. Today I open it and it contains ads and locks features to subscription. It’s not bad, $20 a year, but it’s not what it used to be. Doesn’t feel as good as it used to. I don’t expect something for nothing, but i would prefer to pay a one time fee since I don’t use it that often.
Simple app - should have simple price
by 1THINK1AM on 2018/08/09 11:55
I just now returned to this app to style a picture and discovered that it has converted to a perpetual pay model. The free version is greatly reduced in number of filters and quality of output. This app has unique and pleasing filters, but it is a once-in-a-while app worth at most 2.99. It is not a daily go-to productivity app that one should pay subscription. This is a simple app. It does one simple thing. The price should be simple. If I subscribed to every incidental app that I like, I would be broke. The developers will tell you they need the revenue to keep improving the app. They can also get more revenue by pricing fairly and consistently with the value of the product attracting more volume in purchases. And truly the rate of feature developments and improvements for simple apps like this are not worth high costs. You may get a few new filters. If not for the expectation that the consumer pay and pay and pay, this would be a 5 Star app.
Used to love Prisma.
by renknut on 2018/04/10 13:34
While I currently like Prisma, you recently lost the 5 star love status I previously felt. The monthly or yearly fees are excessive and now I find that filters that I’ve been using for a long time are now locked!! So frustrating and disappointing!! I’d be happy to pay for individual filters that I like for a more reasonable one tone fee than this mess. You’ve lost me as a fan. Please give us better options than this current version.
Taking good photos to great art
by JanBush9 on 2019/06/18 19:38
I love the change prism can do to a photo. I especially like it when I have a really good photo and see the different filters. I usually find one or two that are keepers. My phone home screen is a prism filter of a hawk photo I took at a nature center. People often comment. I’ve been using Prism for years and look forward to the day I become more consistent with my photography. I want to experiment more often.
Most free features gone
by Mdw302 on 2018/03/04 12:49
I downloaded the app when it first came out, based on the rave reviews and the cool images I saw referenced on Instagram. Since then, I have used it occasionally, perhaps once or twice very 2-3 months. I’ve often touted it when I teach smartphone photography workshops as something fun that photographers might want to have in their app library. Now I see most of the filters I used to enjoy are gone, and there is a monthly or yearly fee. Since I am only an occasional user, this fee is not worth the investment. I understand the need to monetize, but this particular shift is a big switch to the expensive side.
IPad support for editor functions- please add!
by Z12earp on 2019/05/08 18:07
Please add the edit functions found in the iPhone version to the iPad version. I use the iPad to see detail quality and choose photos. Currently I have no choice but switch back and forth between phone and iPad to complete an image. It’s extremely discouraging that I can’t just do all the adjustments on the iPad where I can see details. Other than that I love the app, of course. Thanks.
The subscription model ruins it
by PhelineCat on 2018/04/23 01:38
Yes, good filters. Terrible subscription model. Frankly, I just don't see the justification for the cost when there are excellent news outlets that cost close to this. I hate the model so much I haven't used it in many, many months because I don't need the high resolution that much, maybe 6/year, maybe 1. Guess what- that's either $30, $5 or $20 and if I gamble wrong I've thrown $$ at you that maybe I'll never call on again that year. No wonder I hate the model. It feels grabby.
Great app!
by Deadhead Jon on 2019/10/03 04:40
I have had this app since the early days of it and love it. It takes some practice to be able to know what will look good with which filter and it’s become almost impossible with over 500 filters to choose from. Sadly one of my favorites from the first version no longer seems to be available. What happened to the “Caribbean” filter? Bring it back please!
Don’t update
by qwerty26 on 2018/07/14 21:49
I always lost my settings of preferred Styles after any update, but the most recent updates have transformed this app into something I’m deleting from my phone. It’s fine if you turn an app from free to paid, but don’t start charging for designs that were once free. And some of my favorite styles are no longer available anywhere on the app. Equally disappointing as the changes to privacy and the requirement to be subscribed to their Email list even to open the app. Prisma was a novel, stand up app in 2016. But they compromise their reliability and integrity with each update.
Gorgeous app, needs better moderating
by jejune8 on 2018/02/22 14:41
I love using Prisma to jazz up my iPhone photos — you can get some really amazing results. It can be really slow to load sometimes. My biggest issue, though, is that all the “recommended” photos are half- or fully naked women. I wish there was some sort of adult filter to screen those out, since I have no choice in what shows up there. I’ve had no trouble finding people I want to follow who take great landscape, art, and portrait photos.
Sad
by Shadadl on 2018/03/21 03:38
This was a nice app and had a lot of great options. Everyone always says we don’t mind paying for devs to get reimbursement and I think that’s true for many. What I hate is you have something free or minimal cost and then you change to a monthly sub for HD. Okay. That’s cool. Then you change to monthly sub for filters you once had for free. Not cool. If I choose to stay with something free, I expect ads, I expect I won’t get access to newer developments (or will choose to pay if I can’t live without them) but I DON’T expect to lose what I already had. Before I’d give this ap 5 starts as it was unique and I didn’t mind what limitations I had. Just feel it’s a rip now.
No Longer Works
by Bailey's Mom on 2018/12/30 17:00
This was my favorite app ever. Operative word: “was” as in no longer. For the last several months, I have experienced all kinds of glitches even after removing and re-downloading the app. When I first open the app and select gallery to get to my photos, I must wait up to a minute before the photos appear, and sometimes they never come up. When selecting a style, I frequently get a message that something went wrong and to try later. I have now tried three days in a row and I still can’t get half my favorite styles. I was tempted to upgrade, but I’m not spending money for an app that does not work!
Like the old version better
by SoonerJAG on 2018/04/13 10:59
I have to say that I am not a fan of the subscription service. I liked the days when you could buy extra styles in the app. Now they force you to pay a monthly fee. And of course the app now differentiate between standard definition and I definition. All of these now have created an app that is far less stable than original. It’s a shame. When it works this app is really cool. But I can’t recommend it now when they try to gig you for the monthly subscription rate..
Subscription Only Good for Developers
by KevinPurcell on 2018/11/28 13:20
Look I get it you need to make some money. But subscriptions or not the way to do it. Are you still like this app a whole lot. That was when I could use an in app purchase and buy the filters years ago. But the subscription model has killed this app and I will not use it unless they change. Sorry guys a subscription is only good for a major piece of software like adobe Photoshop or Microsoft office. Apps should cost one price one time and that’s it. If you can’t figure out ways to get new customers then it just means the apps either are talented and creative or not clued into what people want.
Unauthorized $21 charge = DELETED
by Needle And Groove on 2018/08/17 18:02
I downloaded this app two years ago when it was free and it was ok. It crashed half the time but I didn’t use it that much but when it worked, the results were cool and it was a free app so I just dealt with it. I wake up last week and upon checking my phone, I see that I was charged $21 from the App Store overnight. Upon investigating, I discovered Prisma automatically charged me for a one year subscription that I did not authorize. I called Apple support and got my money back, and then promptly deleted the app. It’s a nice app but definitely not worth $21. I also don’t appreciate the shady unauthorized charge on my account
No More Boring Photos

I’ve been using Prisma for over two years and recently upgraded to the pro version. Why? I’ve always liked this app - it’s quick and easy to use, can make ordinary pics look like art. With the pro version you get a ton of new filters, and can save in HD. Started posting and following people on Prisma’s feed and I’m seeing amazing posts from all over the world.
Love the effects. Too expensive
by Sneefle on 2019/09/01 08:58
Love the effects (hence 5 stars) but the user experience is shot to hell by the constant, pushy, and frankly over-the-top pressure to purchase the subscription. I’m uninstalling because it’s insulting and ridiculous. I hope other people voice the same opinion enough that you realize it is a huge turn off. I don’t want to subscribe to a service that isn’t a f$@&@ng service in the first place. I’d gladly pay $20 for this as a one time purchase. $30 every year? Get real... actually not giving 5 stars. That just sends the wrong message and doesn’t incentivize the right moves at all. Adjusting now.
Disappointed
by Taseia on 2019/07/05 15:02
I loved this app when it first came out and was free to use. So many beautiful options. Now there are only a handful of free filters and the rest they want you to pay a monthly fee to use. I feel kinda cheated. Like giving candy to a child and then taking it back, lol. Why can’t Prisma get funding from advertisers so we can get free filters again? I might be willing to pay “per filter”, so I can download the ones I want without having a monthly subscription. Please consider this option.
Inappropriate
by Gammongirl on 2018/03/05 23:48
As a younger person I love trying out new things especially when it comes to photo editing and art. When I first got this app the only thing that you could do on it was upload your photo and then put a filter on it. I haven’t been on the app in a while but when I got back on it I was scrolling through the public area where you could post photos I was disgusted by the amount of inappropriate nude and sexiest photos they were on it I will not be using this app anymore and I think that parents as well as children should know that this is not a good app neither appropriate.

Do NOT purchase this app subscription
by tryitonemoretimeyouidiot on 2019/11/21 10:25
The developer has no clue how to restore your purchase and will charge your subscription without giving you access to the full app. Good luck getting your money back. I’ve engaged myself as attorney to file a class action suit. These people are a joke!
Looks cool but a rip off
by Neteru9 on 2019/11/20 04:13
I purchased this app and when I upgraded the iPhone, it won’t restore my purchase👿 It hangs in limbo with spinning wheel and does nothing. The network is fine. I’m typing and posting this while your app is still spinning.
Empty shell of a once great app
by Buckfunster on 2019/11/19 06:40
When I purchased Prisma, there were at least 20 themes one could choose from. Now there’ve dwindled to fewer than 10. Sorry, I didn’t count before starting the review. What used to delight, now disappoints and annoys.
Horrible App and a SCAM
by peytondz on 2019/11/18 00:48
My free trial came to an end, which i forgot to cancel because i deleted this horrible app. I went to cancel, and because i missed the deadline by one day, was charged for an entire hear’s subscription... what a joke. I want my money back. I want no part of this subscription
Crashes on opening
by Waugh2k on 2019/11/17 20:14
Once the best app on my iPad, Prisma is now dysfunctional, so away it goes. Voted off the island.
Won’t even open...
by gizmo6791 on 2019/11/16 20:54
You open the App tap (Next) Tap (Next) again and it shoots down awesome... time to delete ...
Prisms app
by Rawpancho on 2019/11/13 15:52
App Ever
Takes forever to process adding a filter
by kml shoots on 2019/11/13 04:59
I do love this app, but have stopped using it lately since it takes soooooooo long for the filter to apply to the photo. Not sure what the issue is, at first I thought too many users at the same time so I would try different off-peak times and still have the same issues.
Ads
by TimidTrader36 on 2019/11/12 14:27
Subscription invitation is intrusive
So buggy!!!
by carolinaspirulina on 2019/11/11 04:13
This app has some amazing illustration style filters. It’s really sad that it’s incredibly buggy. I have to reopen the app about 8-10 times for it to work. It’s horrible!! Please fix it as I will definitely buy it if all is fixed.
Does not honor paid subscriptions!
by sassyflier on 2019/11/08 20:35
Do not do business with this developer! I have paid for subscriptions twice and they have yet to respond or correct the issue.
Greedy developers
by MikeyBanas on 2019/11/07 01:41
It was a great app, then the developers got greedy. $30 a year? Ridiculous
One of the best

Very very good applicatione for me Thanx alot
From GREAT to GARBAGE
by Alienbutt on 2019/10/31 03:05
I first got this app a couple years ago & thought it was easily one of the best. I just reinstalled to find ALL of the filters I’d previously used & “Favourited” are now locked behind a premium subscription demand. I’m not sure if us “Sheeple” are too stupid or just don’t care that this newest app dev business model is ruining the App Store.
Free trial and I quit
by OldSilvah on 2019/10/28 21:45
The app is full of bugs. Keeps on crashing. Library will not load. They have nerve for charging an annual fee for an app that doesn’t work.
Update 10/27
by xStrangeAllies on 2019/10/28 01:30
Some of the filters STILL don’t work so what bug fixes did you put in the update?
Look like an artistic god
by AgileSeattle on 2019/10/27 20:41
Take pictures and give them a completely new look. I don’t know how they get results back so quickly but I would love to trade bank accounts with the guy/gal this toowho figured it out
Broken
by Boulder Beast on 2019/10/27 15:41
Constantly gives “something went wrong, try again in a few minutes.” Used to be a fantastic app.
Love it
by ccncc on 2019/10/26 22:50
This is a great app for playing with my photos
Not Free!!!!
by Sprucecreekfly on 2019/10/26 14:05
These people are lying to you. This app is no longer free. It costs $29.99 per year. Used to be free. No longer. Beware!!!
good app
by dubtrees on 2019/10/26 13:29
app is good! :)
Another subscription...
by jdoumecq on 2019/10/25 16:26
We will end up with our whole life relying on subscriptions. This one is almost the price of Netflix or Adobe... LOL Seriously? And on top of it, they want access to our privacy. We should be able to charge for that. Deleting this kind of App is restoring freedom
great app but...
by imnotats on 2019/10/25 14:19
i do think there should be more options for those who cannot afford the subscription service, and i do feel like it is shoved down our throat
Paid for last year...
by Bal gal on 2019/10/25 04:55
I love the looks of this app! My subscription was about to expire so I thought I had best try it out before renewal. It wouldn’t let me use it and I paid AGAIN just to write you a note. Not happy.
Great Stuff

Nice App
by jazziz755 on 2019/10/20 20:40
I never get tired of the different ways a photo can look.
Greedy
by Musicman from Kansas on 2019/10/20 05:18
When I first used the app, you could use a small number of filters for free, now you can’t use it at all unless you pay them every month. No thanks.
Love App but RIPOFF subscription
by LuisCContr on 2019/10/19 22:05
My subscription was supposed to go through nov 2019 but the app will not start unless I choose a resubscription option and it’s only October 2019.
PRISMA is my Favorite!!!
by RozzyV on 2019/10/19 22:00
Love Prisma!!! Cool effects easy to use and save images. Very cool app!!!
App not compatible with iPhone 11?
by Jausel on 2019/10/19 21:28
I loved this app until I got an iPhone 11. Now there’s no way to dismiss the screen about subscribing, so unless I pay for it (which I don’t intend to do) I guess I can’t use it.
I'm basically addicted to Prisma
by erotema on 2019/10/19 04:15
I'm not sure how many other apps out there do similar filters and effects with photos, but Prisma was the first that I ever used, and I absolutely love it. You can make some of your photos look like gorgeous paintings and styles of art with a ton of variety. I even use some of the effects with uploaded video game screenshots to make some truly incredible looking images, even though the free version of the app reduces the maximum image resolution quite a bit. I've never paid for the premium version of the app, but as much as I like to play around with the free filters, I've considered it - there are dozens more filters on the paid version, and there's even a daily filter that gives you something new every day. Really, I love this app, and it's helped make some of my favorite photos and moments in my life look even more interesting.
Crashes way too often.
by McD1970 on 2019/10/18 22:19
Used to be great. Now it won’t even work anymore. Can’t even use the app more than 2-3 seconds before it crashes. Totally useless. Everything on my end is up to date, after the last update the Prizma app won’t work.
All the colors
by volcano gail on 2019/10/18 13:51
It is mostly about the colors for me. The texture changes are often not a part of my vision. I can get lost in here. The HD version means you can print them as wall art. I see them in galleries. I have them on my walls. Pretty amazing.
Stopped working
by Aspiring piano player on 2019/10/17 15:13
I suddenly was no longer able to access the photo album. The app became non functional. Reinstalling didn’t work. Contacted support and all they say is they know there is an issue are working on the problem. Don’t buy.
So much fun
by hillmark444 on 2019/10/17 04:32
Try this product and enjoy hours of play
Gallery won’t load
by EarthSci on 2019/10/14 17:53
Looked like a good app, but when I tried to open my photo library, after giving it permission, it wouldn’t load. Just blank squares. Having a large library I know some apps take a minute so I waited... and waited. Three minutes later, nothing. It might have great features, but if it won’t load my photos, it’s worthless. Deleted.
I LOVE THIS AP
by MdJGutierrez on 2019/10/13 16:13
I wish I could get it on my computer.
It used to be great
by CraftyAllie on 2019/10/12 19:11
App used to be amazing, but suddenly its locking me out of 90% of the features I used to use and demanding I give them money. Massive disappointment. If you want people to pay for stuff, add more features. Don’t take them away.
Camera gallery doesn’t load
by Dangitjeff on 2019/10/12 18:57
This app is super rad. There was an issue at first where it wasn’t loading my photos in the first 24 hours, but the issue seemed to have resolved itself thankfully!
Prisma very slow. Has to connect and upload your photos or it won’t even work.

Potential, but falls flat
by Sengoku_us on 2019/10/08 01:16
The Good: - Some nice filters. - Supports iPad in landscape mode. The Bad; - Requires online processing for HD filter images (I think people with the latest iPad Pro’s should have more than enough processing power to do this offline! Give us the option! - The Gallery button just loads up a blank page. Not sure if this is supposed to access your photos library? - Possible bug. Need to be able to process photos that weren’t taken with the iPhone/iPad camera. The Ugly: - Signs you up for a one year subscription when you agree to a 3 day trial. No was to test the app without this. So BE CAREFUL! After agreeing to the trial, go straight into your subscriptions and cancel the trial. You can still use for 3 days, but you won’t be stung for a yearly subscription if you’re not paying attention. Summery: Overall I’m not too impressed with this app. There are better apps Out there that do a better job (without the sharing abilities built into this one - but I’m not too concerned about sharing with others). No option to tweak/edit the supplied filters is also a let down.
Don’t bother!
by gonzo222 on 2019/10/07 03:10
It fails 9 time out of 10, stuck on rendering, and is useless. This on an iPhone 11pro, so no lack of power, just lack of good coders. Look elsewhere.
Disappointed
by Lsato19 on 2019/10/06 17:09
I’ve used this app before the updates but I tried it this week and it just keeps freezing. I can’t take a photo, can’t use my own photo, and can’t even cancel the trial subscription. I’m very disappointed and frustrated.
Terrible
by lijkik on 2019/10/06 12:01
Terrible
Won’t load from my icloud photo library at all
by Strooper on 2019/10/06 07:01
Useless on my iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone X, iPad Pros. Refusing to open iCloud Photo Library. Hasn’t been fixed in over a year. Worthless now that its not compatible with current iPhone photo libraries. Programmers send me an email I’ll send you a video of it not working on each device! In the mean time I’m deleting this waste of space.
App never works!
by Hipchixster on 2019/10/05 19:10
I have an iPhone X and I’ve deleted and reinstalled this app several times to no avail. It freezes up as soon as you open it and you can’t click on anything. I’ve closed all other apps, still won’t work. Waste of my money!
You broke it
by Oooweeee on 2019/10/04 20:02
Can’t close out ad to buy subscription. Fix soon or I’ll be deleting app
What once was good got greedy
by UtahN on 2019/10/04 15:26
So this was great. Was an original user from years ago. Now I can’t upload images from my photo library. Also if I don’t pay the annual or monthly membership fee then it just isn’t working with the latest version. It appears they just want to capitalize and make more money. Greedy. Too bad, now I will go find another image FILTER app.
Nice app to alter original style of photos
by Wims23 on 2019/10/04 04:24
Nice app to alter originality of photo
New version doesn’t work
by Waiting4better on 2019/10/03 12:48
The newest version no longer works. I can ope the app but it automatically disappears after 2 seconds. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. iPhone 6s running IOS 13.1.2
No image upload
by dudeapps on 2019/10/03 07:07
You’re forced, even with the subscription, to use photos you take within the app. Seriously missed opportunity here.
Great app!
by Deadhead Jon on 2019/10/03 04:40
I have had this app since the early days of it and love it. It takes some practice to be able to know what will look good with which filter and it’s become almost impossible with over 500 filters to choose from. Sadly one of my favorites from the first version no longer seems to be available. What happened to the “Caribbean” filter? Bring it back please!
Not what it used to be...
by vini gger on 2019/10/02 20:50
Used to use this app all the time and mess with the filters for free now when you try to use it you can’t get rid of the full access which is very upsetting
So long
by JohnsonViki on 2019/10/01 01:03
Why does it take so long to do anything??
Total Ripoff!!!!
by Fixit on 2019/09/30 12:07
Don’t try it. It is not at all free. It signed up for the “free” trial only and tried to cancel within hours of signing up. They charged for a full year of the “premium” subscription. $29.99 waste. This is a model of how these companies rip you off when you are not looking. I contacted them to explain and ask for a cancellation/refund and they said “ Unfortunately, we cannot cancel the subscription. We'd love to, but Apple does not provide the opportunity to app developers”. I am fighting this issue out of principle. We will see how they respond.
A bit much
by Ncouncil on 2019/09/28 03:16
8.00 a month is a bit steep for what is essentially a pile of filters. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million apps out there that provide filters. Many with far more features than this and many of those available for a one time purchase price of 4.99 - 15.99 or with subscriptions available for .99 - 2.99 per month. I’m feeling like you guys have a somewhat inflated sense of the demand you purport to supply and at this price, I will not be one of those you serve.
Niiice👍
by deeazee on 2019/09/28 00:40
Interesting effects to reinterpret your photos! I’m spending lots of time enjoying these possibilities!
Update equals charged subscription??
by acr040905 on 2019/09/26 16:54
Thats crappy for an app to change that quickly.
Ideas and Inspiration
by legacyandlunacy on 2019/09/24 19:52
Prisma creates images so rapid it helps inspire my projects. I haven’t been painting long and haven’t really found a style or motif to call my own. Prisma filters help me get new ideas for what I might like to try with an image. It never turns out like I expect, but that’s okay.
Endlessly exploitative
by Sabinical on 2019/09/23 06:13
Prisma still seems to think it's a good idea to charge more for a month than 99% of apps charge to own them outright forever. Someone get these guys a monetization specialist to explain the price curve and walk them through how aggravating and insulting your customers isn't the best approach.
Great app needs some simplicity

This used to be a nice way to change photos not ready to pay a monthly fee for this.
Awesome but lots of bugs
by Heather Cegielski on 2019/09/21 23:32
My app freezes up. Too many bugs right now. I am waiting impatiently for Prisma to update the issues. It’s a super cool app when it’s working correctly.
Downloaded and immediately deleted
by TheBear94 on 2019/09/20 00:49
This isn’t a review about your app’s functionality, it’s a review to point out the audacity of setting your free trial period to THREE DAYS. I’m all about utilizing a trial period and then paying for a subscription if I really like the product, but I’ve never seen a period set so short in a clear attempt to charge you $29.99 before you remember to cancel.
This app..
by J-Boy23 on 2019/09/19 21:31

Another subscription-based app. Ugh!
by Mikel J. Wisler on 2019/09/15 17:03
Knock it off with the subscription-baaed apps. I might actually buy this app outright for a reasonable price, but I'm not about to get milked for a monthly subscription to some silly app.
Bummer
by not_stickman on 2019/09/14 23:12
Can’t check it out, if you don’t sign up.
Does not work - Freezes
by Off the cancho! on 2019/09/11 00:07
I purchased it a year ago and still does not work. Every time I try to load the photos it freezes. I uninstalled and tried agin and still does not work. I contacted support and they did not get back to me with any solutions. Don’t waste your time
Dope mf app

This use to be one of my most treasured apps but they've ruined it.
by RedRoseAlways on 2019/09/08 16:13
This use to be such an amazing app but they've screwed it up with all the updates so it is unable to handle my large library so I can no longer import pictures and even use the app. They became so focused on monetizing the heck out of this app - it's no longer functional!!!! Deleted. What a shame. It was good once.
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT
by twilightgirl47 on 2019/09/07 04:04
I used to love this app because you could decide what percentage of the filter you wanted to apply to your picture, now you either get 100% or 0%. what a goddamn disappointment.

The styles are old and don’t do much to alter the content. The new subscription service seems predatory with the free but need to cancel in 3 days or you’re charged $29. I wanted this to be good but it’s the same thing it was 2or3 years ago but shadier.

Fantastic app that accentuates your photo into an artistic print.
Love the effects. Too expensive
by Sneefle on 2019/09/01 08:58
Love the effects (hence 5 stars) but the user experience is shot to hell by the constant, pushy, and frankly over-the-top pressure to purchase the subscription. I’m uninstalling because it’s insulting and ridiculous. I hope other people voice the same opinion enough that you realize it is a huge turn off. I don’t want to subscribe to a service that isn’t a f$@&@ng service in the first place. I’d gladly pay $20 for this as a one time purchase. $30 every year? Get real... actually not giving 5 stars. That just sends the wrong message and doesn’t incentivize the right moves at all. Adjusting now.
Something is missing
by judygruhn on 2019/08/31 23:22
Where are the adjustment sliders to fine tune your selection? You say this is possible but I see no sliders. Just downloaded the app - vs 3.13 I believe. This is a bummer because the description definitely mentions the ability to fine tune. All I can do is swipe right or left to adjust strength. I hope you see this and respond soon or I may have to cancel my subscription.. Three stars at the moment...

Charges for subscription even if you delete it!
by Beau_n_sheets on 2019/08/27 15:34
I downloaded the app, decided it wasn’t what I wanted and then deleted it all same day, within minutes. I was billed for a year subscription without ever using the app. This is just bad business. I also removed it from my subscriptions on my iPhone within the 3 day trial period, still got billed for 30$.
From great to awful
by Smolix on 2019/08/26 15:48
I used to love Prisma. Now all the good filters are gone. I understand that freemium is what they picked as business model. But if it turns into nag-ware and cripple-ware the ‘free’ ad-supported part becomes unusable. Thus nobody will bother paying the eye-watering price for a subscription. Good riddance. Uninstalled.
Don’t bother
by rbarr2 on 2019/08/26 01:54
At one point Prisma was an amazing app, one of my favorites. It doesn’t even work properly. Can’t even get to my albums to get it to work anymore. Yes, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, but nothing. Guess it will be deleted from my phone.

Its hard to figure out how to save it and it puts up subscriptions but you can X out of it 😑
Curses on subscription model

Liked the app. Then it became a subscription model. Blech.

They have good filters
Great app but too many limited restrictions for the free account
by AlchemicKnowledge on 2019/08/20 14:56
I like the app but saving at SD is too limiting and there is no middle ground between free and $30 year. There is no reason why an out like this should be subscription-based but I get it, everybody in the industry is going for the cash grab for Subscriptions. I would love to see this ad for five or $10 and be able to share it with my wife.
Ruined it
by MrDCoop on 2019/08/19 14:24
As with every app these days they ruined it by making everything useful cost extra.

Cancelled my subscription
by EcuadorChica on 2019/08/14 12:11
I was an early user of Prisma and I loved it. Since I got my iphone 10, I signed up as an annual user, but now I can’t use Prisma at all. I’ve made sure everything is connected properly but none of the screen prompts work. I cannot even get access to my photo library or shoot photos. Not only have I lost one of my favorite apps, I just threw $29.99 away. And worse yet, there’s no product support you can easily access. The only time I see any support show up is when someone posts a bad review. Hope this gets their attention because I feel robbed.
Not at all pleased
by MrsArmstrong2016 on 2018/12/31 02:21
For an app that I pay for I expect much better than I am getting! When I first got the app and the subscription, it was wonderful and I loved the filters and the creative options it gave me. Now I need to close and reopen the app in order to use it after I do the first filter. I get the message “Something went wrong. Please wait a moment and try again later.” Then I can do maybe one or two more before getting the message again and having to close and reopen the app. And staring today I cannot use it at all, I continually get that message no matter what filter o try to use or how many times I restart the app. I even deleted and reinstalled the app with the same issue. I know the monthly payments are not terribly high, but I am very choosy about the apps that I pay for and my expectation is that if I am spending my money I should be able to use the product I am paying for so very disappointed with the situation and thinking of getting rid of my subscription and the app all together. I do not like to waste my money.
I'm basically addicted to Prisma
by erotema on 2019/10/19 04:15
I'm not sure how many other apps out there do similar filters and effects with photos, but Prisma was the first that I ever used, and I absolutely love it. You can make some of your photos look like gorgeous paintings and styles of art with a ton of variety. I even use some of the effects with uploaded video game screenshots to make some truly incredible looking images, even though the free version of the app reduces the maximum image resolution quite a bit. I've never paid for the premium version of the app, but as much as I like to play around with the free filters, I've considered it - there are dozens more filters on the paid version, and there's even a daily filter that gives you something new every day. Really, I love this app, and it's helped make some of my favorite photos and moments in my life look even more interesting.
Could be so much better
by realanniethecat on 2018/08/11 15:01
When I first signed up for this app, I had no complaint. The filters are beautiful. I love looking at other users’ photos. But there’s this thing that’s been happening consistently for the last five months. People are getting banned for no reason. They are then told by a prisma representative that they were flagged by multiple users for inappropriate content. But the offending photo is something like a tree, a building or a road. It makes no sense. And it takes days and tons of e-mails back and forth to resolve the issue. When prisma support finally realizes the user has been unfairly banned, their explanation for what happened seems like a cop-out. The solution to this issue seems obvious. Have a prisma rep check out the “offending” photo before banning. But it’s still going on. I paid for a year’s subscription to prisma before this started happening, so I’m still an active user. But I probably won’t pay again once the year’s up, if this issue isn’t resolved. If you’re thinking of paying for the full prisma app and you’ve made it through this whole rant, you might want to think twice.
Prisma is a great app with lots of potential...
by Altair Abdul Khabir (Kyle) on 2019/01/12 10:47
...I recently did the 3 days free trial of the premium Prisma subscription, as before now I’ve always been a free (SD) user. Now many of these filters are amazing and give your photos a painted or very interesting style, however, the built in camera is lacking greatly in manual controls, in the fact there aren’t any controls other than tapping your shooting area (to define auto focus and exposure) and your shutter button. Due to this, if your natural lighting isn’t bright enough, then typically the filters will not work as well. Furthermore, after playing with many of the filters and adjustment settings, as well as flipping back and forth between SD and HD mode, I don’t see much of a difference in quality. So for the base price of $4.99 a month, I’m lost as to where all these features are that make up for forking out the extra money a month and/or year. If Prisma can update it’s camera mode, and add more adjustment features I’d certainly be more willing to pay.
Not bad, but…
by Gitarzz on 2018/06/06 03:29
This is a cool app. It's got a lot of cool filters. Your images won't really look like paintings though. They'll look like altered Photoshop images but they'll still look really cool. I had a crash issue just before writing this review. I fixed it by shutting down all apps on my iPad and then restarting the iPad. That seemed to fix the problem. I think the problem I have with this app really isn't with this app in particular but with all photography apps now. They all seem to want a subscription. I already pay a subscription fee. I pay $10 a month for Lightroom and Photoshop. Currently the most advanced photo editing software on the market. The iPad and iPhone just don't have the processing power to keep up with Lightroom and Photoshop. So apps on these platforms perform one or two functions or a group of simpler functions that Photoshop performs... but demand 1/3 or 1/2 of the monthly price. If you pay the yearly subscription for Prisma you're still paying about 1/6 of the price for filters that you have no control over. No adjustments, no sliders. Yes, you can adjust the opacity of the filter, but that's it. Having said all that, I pay the yearly fee. It's taken some of the cool out of the app but I use it a couple times a month. At two times a month I'm paying about ¢80 per use. Take that into consideration. It will give mostly satisfying results overall. Take that into consideration too.
Privacy, privacy, PRIVACY!!!
by InfinityFields on 2019/01/25 05:30
I wanted to try this App to see what kind of great photos I could create with the filters, but the first thing I was bombarded with was a Privacy Update that I must agree with in order to use the App. After reading about all the data this developer and their third party friends collect about each user who is using the app and what websites they go to, I decide to immediately delete this App. I have become more turned off by how developers are asking or better yet PUSHING users to give them free reign over collecting personal data about how you use the App, your device and what websites you choose to visit. This is not in my interest to give them this information so they can send me ads tailored to my interests. Guys leave my personal data out of your app or give me the choice to ban you from collecting it and I may use your app. However if you choose to force your customers to agree with something they are not comfortable with granting.... then you will obviously find less people willing to use your product. Count me as one of those people!!
Loved until latest update 🌹 revised
by Judidee on 2018/07/28 02:01
Slowly and truly I love to Prisma so very much- I got the coolest effects, just updated it and only have the option of about six filters and everything else you have to pay for and you want to charge a monthly fee. No way. There are other photo editing apps available and I think going from one extreme to another is just not fair to your loyal customers. You were great, and now you’re not. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 thank you for the response I appreciate it yes the old filters were hiding in the I would never have looked. I can use the app the way I used to, but again one little criticism I don’t like every time I open it wanting to be asked to pay for it. And I really would pay something I just think what you’re trying to charges too much when there’s some great free apps- again thank you.
What I love about Prisma
by Media Slut on 2018/05/01 15:09
As an artist, I have found the Prisma app to be a fantastic tool, especially when it comes to understanding more about color relationships, the various mediums and where lights and darks should go in a painting. It offers many interesting filters. I like some better than others, but they seem to cater to many levels of artistic taste. One filter I particularly loved, called Abstract Portrait, disappeared one day and I wish it were offered again. Please consider restoring it! A friend and I are thinking of having an art show featuring our Prisma images. We have many wonderful ones. I would like to see more fine art filters, e.g. Van Gogh, O’Keefe, Hopper and other great colorists. Thank you.
Really cool app; really un-cool business model.
by WAGinWNY on 2018/02/08 21:32
I have been buying iOS photo/graphics apps for a very long time now, and this one produces some of the coolest finished products I have ever seen. BUT, unless you pay for a monthly subscription, you cannot save in “high resolution.” Therefore, it converted the 4032x3024 image from my 8 Plus to a 600kb 1792x1344 one. If you are creating stuff for texting or to post on a website, then that is not an issue. But if you want to save your image so as to be able to incorporate it into a print someday, you are SOL without the monthly subscription. Further, some of the filters are apparently owned by third parties, and launch begging pop-ups when you go to use them. I really like what you can create with this app, and would gladly shell out a flat fee for it. But I will not pay a monthly fee for something I might only want to use every now and again, and I didn’t buy an 8 Plus to work with .5MB image files.
Unable to log in account and Prisma unable to email verification
by L❤️V THIS!!! on 2018/11/18 22:33
I am very frustrated and disappointed with Prisma and the Support Team. I just got a new iPhone and can’t log into my Prisma account. I have typed in my email address for verification, Prisma instructed to check my email but I haven’t received their email verification. I’ve been trying to log into my account for 2 months now and was unsuccessful. I have reached out to Prisma Support Team and they said it must be in my spam box. I’ve checked every single email in my spam box and it’s not there. I sent them screenshots of my profile to let them know that my account is still active and to look up the email linked to my account. The Support Team said they can’t look that up do to piracy. I am being charged monthly and I am unable to access my account. I find it hard to believe that such developers would not look up my email address but charging my account monthly. It’s such a shame!
Do you want my money or not
by flerpy derps on 2019/01/05 03:57
If you give someone a free trial to lure them into buying premium you don’t make it so hard! Howbout that? I think “hey I wanna try this out see IF I’ll pay for it first.” and of course it’s some ordeal that already requires my credit card before I even get it? At least make a faint attempt at seeming nice while promoting. “Hey hope you like it premium sure is good. If you end up liking it enter your information we’ll get you taken care of” you might say- I should not have to even think about paying for a free trial. I should think “wow now that I’ve tried this I sure do appreciate it and would like to pay for it.” What a colossal failure of customer retention! I should be asleep by now but I’m waiting to figure out and barely expressing my frustration toward trying to attach my credit card to a FREE TRIAL. Your vanilla version by the way is pathetic and I will hereby delete it. You can expect no premium from I nor anyone else who wishes a free trial and is discouraged at first glance.
Very satisfactory results at a hefty price of time and money!
by Pompom & Sheila on 2018/03/19 03:37
At first it was great because it had very unique offline "filters". After a while I thought it was still great because the effects were still unique and suited my preference compared with every other IOS app offered out there. Then it just kept evolving until it had a library of effects and HD. I don't know if it will work offline anymore. I guess everything does come at a price (about $20) for an annual HD access. Downside is it takes a quite while to process!! if you were meticulous to details you'd want to try just about every effect. Beware: it is battery draining even for my iPhone 7 Plus!
Please add scale slider for paid version
by Phrannest on 2019/06/12 04:30
I think I figured out what the trouble is with the legacy filters! They ARE the same filters, they’re just applying at a much smaller size due to the increased resolution (I appreciate the increased resolution). One thing that would be great for the paid version is a scale option for the sliders, to affect the scale at which the filter is applied to the image. I’m really enjoying all the other sliders! Would also love a true rainbow color shift slider for bold effects. Right now there are two resolution options and often the lower one is the bolder image, but it can’t be exported at the higher resolution, which has the filter applied at an extremely fine grain.
Another good app gone to subscription
by kintri on 2018/07/13 17:42
I had purchased the premium of this app quite a while back. I hadn’t used it in a while and went to go show a friend how cool it was and it looks like they want me to signup for monthly or yearly. I really don’t mind if apps start out like that from the beginning so you know what you’re getting into. When you pay a premium for an app it should be yours. All these apps doing this add up to sooo much money that this model is going to fail. No average consumer wants to pay $20 annually to run pictures through filters. Maybe $20 a year for a OS or critical service, but these price points are out of whack!
And yet again this app is completely worthless
by gurlcatrider on 2019/06/09 18:30
When I open it it either does nothing or allows me to take a picture and then does nothing. It has a red number on it as if it’s trying to tell me something but I have not been able to get access to any information from this app or make it do anything since the last time I wrote about it. As someone pointed out this is something I paid for and has proved to be almost entirely worthless. If I could get my money back I would . in fact please give me my money back!
A great app!
by Cuppycake Sugar Love on 2018/11/14 13:06
UPDATE: Prisma has done some updates. Thankful that some of the glitches have been worked out. I love the yearly fee and all the filters I have access to. I’ve been able to make some incredible photos with this app. Prisma has a bunch of really great people on it and I feel like a world traveler being able to see Hong Kong, Italy, Australia, Korea, the Netherlands, and many other places. There is a community with in Prisma and am proud to call them friends. We pay for Prisma app and my husband was just banned. Banned means you can still see others posts but you can’t post, like posts, or comment/like posts. We have written to Prisma and he is still blocked from the app.
Changes in their privacy notice-beware!
by wizard2day on 2018/06/02 23:03
I love the great features, but when I went to use the app, the privacy policy has changed. I have just deleted the app from my iOS devices because while I don’t mind that I agree that they can access my library of photos so I can adjust them and change them while I am using the app, I do not give my permission to use my personal data to send to anyone of their choice. Once a person clicks on the top agreement to give permission for access, 2 other boxes appear to check mark and if you do not click in those other boxes, the app will not work. Very manipulative on their part. That permission was not there previously. They just lost a customer and in this day in age of information exchange or stealing of personal data, I don’t agree with their changes in the privacy policies.
AWSOME
by Pete1945 on 2018/03/28 16:05
This is so much fun and it can add serious artistic content i will sketch in another app run the image in this program looking for effects I always find something that i like. I have posted a lot of work here and have loyal followers it is a Good community for me to get out my expressions and find feedback. I love the international worldwide feedback i also love seeing my corespondents work it is all terrific. So what else is there i think we have a lot in common Russia and Texas are big open places populated by creative souls this is one way for us to be friends.
Subscription required
by Noooooopppppeee on 2019/01/29 05:36
You’d think for an app that requires a subscription, the quality would be better than others. I decided to give it a shot, and tried the free trial, after editing one photo I decided it wasn’t worth it and immediately went to my iTunes to unsubscribe. However, the app has their own issues, and now has me signed up for a one year subscription. Though I figured going through iTunes and the app would be good enough, I also cleared my data with the company which you can do under settings. This didn’t help in the slightest as it hasn’t changed anything. I haven’t used the editor since the first try and would not recommend because of how much of a hassle it has been for an app that isn’t any greater than its free competitors.
No longer works. Update; working now
by Dragon18000 on 2018/09/03 15:15
Only 3 filters are working. I click on filters and it will go through the usual process of ' creating artwork ' and when done there is no change to the photograph. I uninstalled and reinstalled and same. It's been doing this for a couple of weeks now. Is it just me ? Update. I uninstalled it about 7 weeks ago and reinstalled it last week. Working now. It didn't work when I uninstalled and reinstalled right away last time.
They charge you after 3 days
by snibbs1420 on 2019/07/11 14:27
Warning: this app is NOT FREE. If you download this app, beware you’ll be automatically charged after 3 “free days of use”. I contacted them and they said they can’t do anything to refund my money and I need to contact apple, which I will do. They said “We are sorry if subscription model turned out to be confusing. The free 3-day trial subscription is automatically followed by annual premium subscription if you don't cancel it. It is indicated on the payment screen, we warn our users each time they activate the trial.” I don’t remember seeing an activation screen but it’s possible I breezed through it excited to check out the app. Anyways, users should know this app costs money within 3 days, so unless you want to pay, I’d avoid downloading this.
This is why you don’t want to update apps...
by ekolok8 on 2019/03/31 02:31
I used to have a lot of fun with this app, and a few of the filters became my favorite go-to treatment for photos...now it seems to be completely unusable. I don’t mind paying for apps, I understand the value in it for the right apps-but recently it seems like we get hosed by developers. Some of these in-app purchase amounts are insane for stuff that stops working. Hopefully they get this figured out...used to be 5 stars for me, but now 2-as a nostalgic courtesy.
Incredible results… when you get them.
by RansomedNBlood on 2018/03/21 12:39
I really like the results I get with the Prisma app. The wide range of filters and the fact that you can vary the intensity is really cool! The process is painfully slow however. Many times you get a message to check back later because the servers are full. Other than this it's a great app... if you need another monthly bill to add to your collection. Buy a different app that you don’t have to pay monthly for.
Potential, but falls flat
by Sengoku_us on 2019/10/08 01:16
The Good: - Some nice filters. - Supports iPad in landscape mode. The Bad; - Requires online processing for HD filter images (I think people with the latest iPad Pro’s should have more than enough processing power to do this offline! Give us the option! - The Gallery button just loads up a blank page. Not sure if this is supposed to access your photos library? - Possible bug. Need to be able to process photos that weren’t taken with the iPhone/iPad camera. The Ugly: - Signs you up for a one year subscription when you agree to a 3 day trial. No was to test the app without this. So BE CAREFUL! After agreeing to the trial, go straight into your subscriptions and cancel the trial. You can still use for 3 days, but you won’t be stung for a yearly subscription if you’re not paying attention. Summery: Overall I’m not too impressed with this app. There are better apps Out there that do a better job (without the sharing abilities built into this one - but I’m not too concerned about sharing with others). No option to tweak/edit the supplied filters is also a let down.
Used to be good- updated yourself To uselessness
by BKLA on 2019/07/14 19:04
This app is fantastic. Great filters did a lot of great cool things. You keep updating in every update makes it more and more is useless. Now doesn’t even open I open the app and it freezes every single time can’t do anything with it it’s kind of a mess. Don’t tell me did I update. I have the updated everything I want an iPhone X I want the latest iOS and the latest version of the program. You fell into the same trap that everyone else dreams. Update yourself till the thing doesn’t work anymore. Don’t fix What isn’t broken already, developers!
What am I doing on Prisma?
by Occasional reader on 2018/11/10 22:07
I still don’t know what I’m doing, but so far just playing with it, I’m impressed. I’ll figure it out. Then, l’ll get really good at it. I love playing with photos! There are so many things I could say about it, but I’d rather say it with... let’s see, I’m not so good with words, if only I communicate a different way... maybe with ***music*** I love music. I know nothing about music. Let’s ditch that idea. What other ways are there? There must be something. Oh yeah, l’ll say it in pictures. Beautiful photographs. That’s what I’m thinking of — Prisma pictures.
This app is cool...in 2016
by Rocketbosszach on 2018/05/25 05:07
Prisma is in a gray area for me, so I feel like it should get a score that reflects that. I loved Prisma when it came out. It was so interesting to see your photos become paintings, sketches or whatever. It genuinely was a marvel at the time. But since then, not much has changed. The quality of AI interpretation hasn’t really gotten better and now they limit you to low resolution demo images and a much smaller bank of filters unless you give them $20 a year. Do I believe that developers should get paid for their work? Of course! But Prisma fails to build on its original thesis from two years ago and brings no further innovation to the table.
Nope can’t do it!!!
by TurbanChin on 2018/04/15 14:22
I have had this app since it was invented back when I had a iPhone 6S... I now have an iPhone 8Plus... that’s 4 years!!! Back then this app was “free” and the absolute best app for turning your photos into real impressive fabulous fantastic pics that wowed me and people I showed every time!!!!! That was then, this is now... 4 years later this app turns into a paid subscription app monthly!!!! Nope can’t do it!!! [You] could at the least give those people who originally downloaded your app first, within let’s say the first 6 months to 1 year, at least give those people the app for free!!!! Geez. Or a flat fee, I would pay 2$ maybe 3$ for this app!!!
Beautiful Processing, Inefficient Interface
by seekerspock on 2018/03/21 01:38
It processes pictures awesomely and the feed is a great way to see other people's creations. (As most feeds are.) The only major problem is that there's no way to search for anything specific within the feed, like another person's profile page. You have to go through a Byzantine process to find someone if you don't follow them, and it can take a while. It would be nice if they added a search engine. Also, they took a whole bunch of filters that used to be free and hid them behind a paywall because that’s fun, I guess.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️DOWNLOAD
by JoshNintendo on 2018/01/25 01:52
If you want an app that can add cool filters to your photos (maybe videos too I’m not sure), than you NEED THIS APP! I was skeptical at first, but once I started using it, I was making 10 copies of 1 photo because it has so many amazing filters! And it’s so easy! Just select a picture, select a filter, wait for it to load while it filters it, and there! Now you have an amazing photo! Beautiful, high-quality filters, all simplified into a super easy-to-use app.
A little sad
by Agent 47 on 2018/04/07 19:29
I’ve had Prisma since it came out. Early adopter. I don’t use it often as I used to, but I loved that they didn’t follow the crowd of ad and subscription supported apps. Today I open it and it contains ads and locks features to subscription. It’s not bad, $20 a year, but it’s not what it used to be. Doesn’t feel as good as it used to. I don’t expect something for nothing, but i would prefer to pay a one time fee since I don’t use it that often.
Simple app - should have simple price
by 1THINK1AM on 2018/08/09 11:55
I just now returned to this app to style a picture and discovered that it has converted to a perpetual pay model. The free version is greatly reduced in number of filters and quality of output. This app has unique and pleasing filters, but it is a once-in-a-while app worth at most 2.99. It is not a daily go-to productivity app that one should pay subscription. This is a simple app. It does one simple thing. The price should be simple. If I subscribed to every incidental app that I like, I would be broke. The developers will tell you they need the revenue to keep improving the app. They can also get more revenue by pricing fairly and consistently with the value of the product attracting more volume in purchases. And truly the rate of feature developments and improvements for simple apps like this are not worth high costs. You may get a few new filters. If not for the expectation that the consumer pay and pay and pay, this would be a 5 Star app.
Used to love Prisma.

While I currently like Prisma, you recently lost the 5 star love status I previously felt. The monthly or yearly fees are excessive and now I find that filters that I’ve been using for a long time are now locked!! So frustrating and disappointing!! I’d be happy to pay for individual filters that I like for a more reasonable one tone fee than this mess. You’ve lost me as a fan. Please give us better options than this current version.
Taking good photos to great art
by JanBush9 on 2019/06/18 19:38
I love the change prism can do to a photo. I especially like it when I have a really good photo and see the different filters. I usually find one or two that are keepers. My phone home screen is a prism filter of a hawk photo I took at a nature center. People often comment. I’ve been using Prism for years and look forward to the day I become more consistent with my photography. I want to experiment more often.
Most free features gone
by Mdw302 on 2018/03/04 12:49
I downloaded the app when it first came out, based on the rave reviews and the cool images I saw referenced on Instagram. Since then, I have used it occasionally, perhaps once or twice very 2-3 months. I’ve often touted it when I teach smartphone photography workshops as something fun that photographers might want to have in their app library. Now I see most of the filters I used to enjoy are gone, and there is a monthly or yearly fee. Since I am only an occasional user, this fee is not worth the investment. I understand the need to monetize, but this particular shift is a big switch to the expensive side.
IPad support for editor functions- please add!
by Z12earp on 2019/05/08 18:07
Please add the edit functions found in the iPhone version to the iPad version. I use the iPad to see detail quality and choose photos. Currently I have no choice but switch back and forth between phone and iPad to complete an image. It’s extremely discouraging that I can’t just do all the adjustments on the iPad where I can see details. Other than that I love the app, of course. Thanks.
The subscription model ruins it
by PhelineCat on 2018/04/23 01:38
Yes, good filters. Terrible subscription model. Frankly, I just don't see the justification for the cost when there are excellent news outlets that cost close to this. I hate the model so much I haven't used it in many, many months because I don't need the high resolution that much, maybe 6/year, maybe 1. Guess what- that's either $30, $5 or $20 and if I gamble wrong I've thrown $$ at you that maybe I'll never call on again that year. No wonder I hate the model. It feels grabby.
Great app!
by Deadhead Jon on 2019/10/03 04:40
I have had this app since the early days of it and love it. It takes some practice to be able to know what will look good with which filter and it’s become almost impossible with over 500 filters to choose from. Sadly one of my favorites from the first version no longer seems to be available. What happened to the “Caribbean” filter? Bring it back please!
Don’t update
by qwerty26 on 2018/07/14 21:49
I always lost my settings of preferred Styles after any update, but the most recent updates have transformed this app into something I’m deleting from my phone. It’s fine if you turn an app from free to paid, but don’t start charging for designs that were once free. And some of my favorite styles are no longer available anywhere on the app. Equally disappointing as the changes to privacy and the requirement to be subscribed to their Email list even to open the app. Prisma was a novel, stand up app in 2016. But they compromise their reliability and integrity with each update.
Gorgeous app, needs better moderating
by jejune8 on 2018/02/22 14:41
I love using Prisma to jazz up my iPhone photos — you can get some really amazing results. It can be really slow to load sometimes. My biggest issue, though, is that all the “recommended” photos are half- or fully naked women. I wish there was some sort of adult filter to screen those out, since I have no choice in what shows up there. I’ve had no trouble finding people I want to follow who take great landscape, art, and portrait photos.
Sad
by Shadadl on 2018/03/21 03:38
This was a nice app and had a lot of great options. Everyone always says we don’t mind paying for devs to get reimbursement and I think that’s true for many. What I hate is you have something free or minimal cost and then you change to a monthly sub for HD. Okay. That’s cool. Then you change to monthly sub for filters you once had for free. Not cool. If I choose to stay with something free, I expect ads, I expect I won’t get access to newer developments (or will choose to pay if I can’t live without them) but I DON’T expect to lose what I already had. Before I’d give this ap 5 starts as it was unique and I didn’t mind what limitations I had. Just feel it’s a rip now.
No Longer Works
by Bailey's Mom on 2018/12/30 17:00
This was my favorite app ever. Operative word: “was” as in no longer. For the last several months, I have experienced all kinds of glitches even after removing and re-downloading the app. When I first open the app and select gallery to get to my photos, I must wait up to a minute before the photos appear, and sometimes they never come up. When selecting a style, I frequently get a message that something went wrong and to try later. I have now tried three days in a row and I still can’t get half my favorite styles. I was tempted to upgrade, but I’m not spending money for an app that does not work!
Like the old version better
by SoonerJAG on 2018/04/13 10:59
I have to say that I am not a fan of the subscription service. I liked the days when you could buy extra styles in the app. Now they force you to pay a monthly fee. And of course the app now differentiate between standard definition and I definition. All of these now have created an app that is far less stable than original. It’s a shame. When it works this app is really cool. But I can’t recommend it now when they try to gig you for the monthly subscription rate..
Subscription Only Good for Developers
by KevinPurcell on 2018/11/28 13:20
Look I get it you need to make some money. But subscriptions or not the way to do it. Are you still like this app a whole lot. That was when I could use an in app purchase and buy the filters years ago. But the subscription model has killed this app and I will not use it unless they change. Sorry guys a subscription is only good for a major piece of software like adobe Photoshop or Microsoft office. Apps should cost one price one time and that’s it. If you can’t figure out ways to get new customers then it just means the apps either are talented and creative or not clued into what people want.
Unauthorized $21 charge = DELETED
by Needle And Groove on 2018/08/17 18:02
I downloaded this app two years ago when it was free and it was ok. It crashed half the time but I didn’t use it that much but when it worked, the results were cool and it was a free app so I just dealt with it. I wake up last week and upon checking my phone, I see that I was charged $21 from the App Store overnight. Upon investigating, I discovered Prisma automatically charged me for a one year subscription that I did not authorize. I called Apple support and got my money back, and then promptly deleted the app. It’s a nice app but definitely not worth $21. I also don’t appreciate the shady unauthorized charge on my account
No More Boring Photos
by El Mondo on 2018/05/05 04:15
I’ve been using Prisma for over two years and recently upgraded to the pro version. Why? I’ve always liked this app - it’s quick and easy to use, can make ordinary pics look like art. With the pro version you get a ton of new filters, and can save in HD. Started posting and following people on Prisma’s feed and I’m seeing amazing posts from all over the world.
Love the effects. Too expensive
by Sneefle on 2019/09/01 08:58
Love the effects (hence 5 stars) but the user experience is shot to hell by the constant, pushy, and frankly over-the-top pressure to purchase the subscription. I’m uninstalling because it’s insulting and ridiculous. I hope other people voice the same opinion enough that you realize it is a huge turn off. I don’t want to subscribe to a service that isn’t a f$@&@ng service in the first place. I’d gladly pay $20 for this as a one time purchase. $30 every year? Get real... actually not giving 5 stars. That just sends the wrong message and doesn’t incentivize the right moves at all. Adjusting now.
Disappointed
by Taseia on 2019/07/05 15:02
I loved this app when it first came out and was free to use. So many beautiful options. Now there are only a handful of free filters and the rest they want you to pay a monthly fee to use. I feel kinda cheated. Like giving candy to a child and then taking it back, lol. Why can’t Prisma get funding from advertisers so we can get free filters again? I might be willing to pay “per filter”, so I can download the ones I want without having a monthly subscription. Please consider this option.
Inappropriate
by Gammongirl on 2018/03/05 23:48
As a younger person I love trying out new things especially when it comes to photo editing and art. When I first got this app the only thing that you could do on it was upload your photo and then put a filter on it. I haven’t been on the app in a while but when I got back on it I was scrolling through the public area where you could post photos I was disgusted by the amount of inappropriate nude and sexiest photos they were on it I will not be using this app anymore and I think that parents as well as children should know that this is not a good app neither appropriate.
