Locked up my phone, wouldn’t work. Also “free 3 day trial” they immediately charged my account $24.99 for a year.
Unusable paid premium app
by Aeneah on 2021/02/25 02:29
It doesn’t work for me at all. I paid for the Premium and can’t use it. I’ve deleted, re-downloaded, restarted the iPhone to no avail. Very frustrating.
Spam
by Geo_ on 2021/02/24 19:57
You cannot do anything unless you subscribe. 🤬 update: The developer responded to my review and said there there are things that can be done without their outrageously priced subscription. If there is anything that the app will do without a subscription, they are well hidden. I certainly can’t find them. Apple needs to have a ZERO STARS option.
Never works!!
by DesertSully on 2021/02/24 19:46
I bought this and have only been able to use TWICE!! Always freezes, and/or boots you out! I want a refund!
Worthless

Has quit working ! I paid for this and used to like it . Do not know how to get it working .
App freezes
by OlyDB on 2021/02/22 19:19
Lovely concept, however it is freezing at launch after about 2 seconds of functionality. I have an iPhone 11 with plenty of memory. Also have a subscription which I am now regretting. Sent a note to support but haven't gotten a response. I urge caution in purchasing until/if they get the kinks out.
It doesn’t wor!!!
by jlperez67 on 2021/02/21 18:12
I used to have Prisma in previous iPhones. I installed it in a new iPhone 12 Pro Max and the app crashes all the time. I can’t make it work. I tried several times uninstalling and reinstalling with no success. I’m dropping from this app unless someone can help with a solution.
Don’t waste your money
by ValleyGirl89 on 2021/02/21 15:59
I was able to purchase this app without any problems and really enjoyed seeing all the different filters. However, now I can’t even get the app to work!! I open it and it’s just frozen. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling but nothing happens. Still frozen!!! I tried clicking on support link but that doesn’t take you anywhere you can send them a message. I paid for a full year and definitely want my money back. Not sure how I will be able to do that when I can’t even submit my complaint.

Prisma- found it again!

It used the Prisma App many years ago and loved it - then lost it- just rediscovered and I am happy for it!
Do no want!

Does not open
by MeWagg on 2021/02/18 22:30
The app was quick to require me to commit to the $29.99 annual fee in order to access the 7-day free trial but the app freezes upon opening. Can’t even try it. Will be extremely upset if I’m charged for an app I never get to try. So much for the recent update.

by Ezzmasd on 2021/02/18 19:14
I wish it be free because we can not pay, we have not credit card.
Don’t bother!
by gonzo222 on 2021/02/18 17:19
Update: now it does not even allow photos to load!! 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.
I thought it was a 3 day trial
by txflood on 2021/02/18 02:35
I went to unsubscribe, down loaded on Sunday evening and went to unsubscribe today Wednesday.. I was already charge for a year subscription. I would like my money refunded!
Cannot cancel you are locked in!!!
by paula77401 on 2021/02/17 14:28
No response from customer service when tried to cancel within the 3 day “free” trial. Be very aware!! Developer responded as it’s an Apple issue!! Buyer beware!!!!! They just want your money!! They take zero responsibility - always someone else’s fault. Bunch of thieves!!!!
Didn’t work
by Czthday on 2021/02/17 04:23
I download added this and it froze completely. I couldn’t do anything. I closed the app, turned off my phone and started over. It still didn’t work. I cancelled the subscription and deleted the app.
Prism Stalls on iPad
by Palsek on 2021/02/16 19:41
I’m sorry but paying $29 / year for an iPad app that freezes upon opening is crazy. Running iOS 14.4 on both iPhone and iPad and app freezes on both device.
App has become inaccessible
by SanDiego_Sue on 2021/02/16 17:18
My Prisma app got slower and slower to open over the last several months and now won’t open at all no matter how many times I delete/reboot/reinstall/retry.
AFTER IOS UPGRADE PRISMA STOPPED
by DKWieneke on 2021/02/16 10:35
App worked and was my favorite. Then after latest upgrade to iPhone PRISMA app freezes on startup. Got latest PRISMA app upgrade and still freezes. Sad.
Just trying it ,
by maemoore on 2021/02/16 03:46
Hope so far.
Buyer beware
by AiP713 on 2021/02/16 03:29
The app stopped working. Frozen on all my devices, despite deleting and downloading again. The company did not respond to emails asking for help. Horrible experience. Trust me: DO NOT BUY annual subscription. I don't know how Apple can allow them to continue seeking this. What a rip-off.
Great!
by car chase on 2021/02/15 14:10
Really amazing
Why the change
by soleew on 2021/02/14 17:57
I used to be able to save an edited picture to my photos. Now I can’t.
Crashes and crashes and then wants $$
by Zak in the ATL on 2021/02/14 14:23
This app was once a joy. Now it’s a ploy. Sad when commerce kills technology.
Used once and now it freezes
by sdonnal on 2021/02/14 13:52
Every time I go to use the app it freezes and does not work at all. It’s beyond frustrating!!!
Turn's pic sideways
by BassEdge on 2021/02/14 05:33
Whenever I try to add a background, it turns the picture sideways which doesn't blend with the background like it should. Aside from this it works like it should. If this is fixed, I give it five stars.
Used to be 5 star rating
by LuBall on 2021/02/13 20:50
It’s freezing up and crashing again! I pay for this and will not renew my subscription if it isn’t fixed. I love this app when it WORKS!
It does not work on iPhone 12
by NWCrazyPhotos on 2021/02/13 20:41
Wow, used to work great. Now, nothings happens and it locks up instantly. I purchased the subscription and now it is useless. How do I get a version that works or my money back?
Doesn’t work?
by ThisgirlAutumn on 2021/02/13 18:30
I keep trying to use the app but it literally just keeps freezing and then I can’t use it.... I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. Kinda sad to me

No instructions. Can’t use
Absolute Trash
by spazz27 on 2021/02/12 19:13
This is absolute trash! If you have a large photo album, when it opens, sooner or later it will just freeze. It can’t process the amount of photos, as if it ran out of computing power. I have the latest iPhone 12 Pro Max, and i restarted the phone, and reinstalled the app. Same garbage. I cancelled my subscription within 1 hour of downloading it. Imagine how bas it was that I couldn’t handle it anymore? Garbage garbage garbage!!!
Not recommended
by Jose Antonio Oliva on 2021/02/12 15:06
As always it free to install and the moment, you install it you have to pay to use it. Just show and charge at the beginning before people waste their time installing.
Freezes
by Crash n Freeze on 2021/02/12 12:19
Yes, it free
No longer works as of 11-Feb-2021
by j j c 1 2 7 on 2021/02/12 05:39
Past two updates have completely broken app. It now opens to photo catalog, goes unresponsive and spikes CPU on my iPhone 11 Pro. Same result after killing all apps and rebooting phone.
Lock up my iPad immediately after launch
by Emoose3 on 2021/02/12 03:11
I never get past the first screen. I even relaunched my tablet, to no improvement.
Subscription fee ? No thanks
by jengo on 2021/02/11 23:08
The best way to get me to delete your app and give a bad rating is by having a subscription fee.
Absolute garbage
by BenGiroux on 2021/02/11 22:49
App freezes, doesn’t respond to taps, and is essentially unusable. I immediately cancelled my free trial.
App freezes
by SlowBrother on 2021/02/11 19:42
Contacted by Developer who suggested work around while they try to fix it. Changing setting for photo access from “All Photos” to “Selected Photos“ gets rid of the App Freeze problem. I have changed my rating from 1 star to 4 stars as a result. Version 4.1.2 No change. Still freezes upon startup. Version 4.1.1. This app was good enough for me to subscribe for a year, but since the last update, it no longer works. Freezes upon startup. Been a couple of weeks and no fix. I have the previous version on my iPad and that still works even with the iOS 14.4 update. So I don’t think it is an iOS problem. Don’t bother until they fix it.
Nice but needs more templates.
by Counter factual on 2021/02/11 17:49
I have not tried to save but like what I see so far.
Want money back!!!!

I have a year subscription. It won’t even let me choose a photo. Does nothing! Then Quits! Not happy
Not happy
by SultryDiva on 2021/02/11 03:29
I just downloaded this app however I can’t use it because it freezes immediately upon opening it. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and it does the same thing. I will try again if it doesn’t work.... I will delete this app.
Horrible
by jimmy stew on 2021/02/11 00:41
App is useless, will not stop crashing
Pay me
by dmydrlng on 2021/02/10 21:00
I’m experiencing issues with the app that others users reported having over 2 years ago. It seems they’ve failed to address these concerns and the fact that you have to pay for this is ridiculous. It worked for the first two photos and will no longer work at all no matter what I do. Thankfully I am in the trial and can cancel but as far as I’m concerned they need to paying people to use this app and not the other way around. You want me to be your beta tester pay me for it. Deleted.
Refund
by JXManc on 2021/02/10 17:21
Sub-par editing but their data collection is on point. Canceled free trial and still got charger $30 with no refund or reply back to request.
Frozen screen
by TexBottleBlonde on 2021/02/09 23:02
I am paying a monthly fee for nothing. I deleted the app awhile back and waited for an update. Just reinstalled and nothing works. It’s like a photo of the icons, doesn’t respond to clicks.
Garbage
by glorbo95 on 2021/02/09 17:07
I got roped into buying a whole year of the service because I forgot to cancel the free trial needed to even use the app... Now the app doesn’t even do anything. It freezes immediately upon opening and just doesn’t do anything. Really disappointed.
Looks and sounds great but!
by Trevor1090 on 2021/02/09 12:14
Looks and sounds like a great app, but after multiple attempts to use, including removing and reinstalling, app does not work. Will open and shows your pics, but is frozen. Can not even open settings. Have stopped renewal and am requesting reimbursement via this review. Thank you.
I love this app

Used to be my favorite photo app but it completely stopped working two weeks ago. It opens but totally freezes. Completely Unusable. Do not purchase until this is fixed!!!
Paid, but doesn’t work
by vawahine on 2021/02/08 23:06
I have contacted the developer. They have not given me a solution to make the app I paid for functional. Not have I been offered a refund.
Not worth it
by Steve98166 on 2021/02/08 15:51
This app used to be free, but now the devs got greedy and you need a subscription to use it. Screw that.
App Frozen
by bkbrew76 on 2021/02/08 15:28
I really wish I could find information as to why this app has stopped working. Completely frozen every time I try to select a photo to use. App support link just sends you to their webpage which provides no help. I use this app daily & have paid for a subscription for it to be completely useless. Developers please send an update with a bug fix!

Crash city. Very disappointing
by Bradanzig on 2021/02/08 03:24
App is trash and constantly freezes and crashes. Thank god I didn’t sign up/pay for the premium features right away, otherwise I’d be angrily yelling for a refund right now. Really unfortunate that it’s essentially worthless hard drive space filler, I was excited to try it at first.
No longer opening in iOS 14.4...

No longer opens. Freezes during app startup. iPhone 11 with 14.4 update...

by Unored5 on 2021/02/07 04:29
I would love to change this back to 5 stars...I purchased the annual subscription and now the app is useless. It’s frozen and doesn’t load images. Tried on iPad and iPhone. Help from developers!! Please.
App no longer loads
by Taaza on 2021/02/06 23:51
Went to use Prisma after not using for a while; found out that it's now subscription-based. Fine. Signed up for trial, went back to use Prisma, freezes on splash screen. Turned phone on and off, tried to open Prisma, still frozen on select photo screen and no buttons work. Deleted app 3x, reloaded app but still the same - just freezes on select picture screen. something is strangely wrong with your app. I have an iPhone 12 Pro running iOS 14 so I do have the latest software and phone. Cancelled subscription. Too bad. I really enjoyed the art-like filters on this app when it was functional. 😥
Outstanding
by Eddie 1738202 on 2021/02/06 14:30
There’s tons of unique and interesting filters that are absolutely gorgeous. There’s one for every picture I got ✌️
Constantly freezes... so frustrating
by DURIANPEET on 2021/02/06 03:57
I wish I knew if the app worked but it freezes after just a few steps. I have deleted and reloaded multiple times and I’m not sure it’s worth trying further.
Saving issue - Not Working
by Skippywan771976 on 2021/02/05 08:39
So I got this and it’s an ok tool, but it won’t save anything I edit. Which of course makes it worthless to me and I’m going to try and get a refund, because the app is faulty. Really disappointed.
Does not work since iOS update.

Paid for the service and it freezes up about 2 seconds after opening the app. No exaggeration. Absolutely terrible. They should pull it if they can’t make it work. Reeks of fraud.
Yes it’s great I used to own it but now I have to pay for it
by JoelieJoelie on 2021/02/04 00:04
As far as I can tell there’s no way to use it for free. It’s $30 a year. They say you can use it for free with limited filters but I can figure out how to do that. Pretty sure I used to own it but it doesn’t recognize that… La Di Da

Great App when it works
by ohiowater on 2021/02/03 14:58
Loved this App when I downloaded it I subscribed to the premium version but shortly after it’s completely quit working. I sent a tech support ticket in with no response. Uninstalled, reload to newest version. No change very disappointing, don’t waste your money next step is to try to get a refund for my subscription don’t think that will be fun or easy.
They trick you when you subscribe
by Barbie_Brown__I_Am on 2021/02/03 13:59
I signed up for a trial and $2.99 a month subscription ..... “somehow” I went to cancel my trial cause I sky like the quality of the app and it charged me for $29.99 year subscription..... I will be calling Apple to dispute this charge
Love it so far!

App freezes over and over again. Deleted twice completely and reinstalled, still. Excellent when it worked, definitely not worth the money I paid.
Great app—when it works
by DeRochier on 2021/02/02 07:05
Prisma has been my favorite photo filtering app for years but I finally canceled my subscription because it stopped working—again. I launch the app and it freezes. No error message, just completely unresponsive to all input. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, rebooted my iPhone and... nothing. These type of issues have always plagued the app. It’s great when it works but I’m tired of the continuous frustration. That’s why I canceled my subscription. Buyer beware.

Subscription bait
by Medragon59 on 2021/02/01 20:49
Baits you to download and then hit you with sub only option and one of those “free trials” trying to auto renew trick you. Not a tactic that shows you believe in your product.
Amazing results every time!
by The Guy That Failed Everything on 2021/02/01 20:28
I love this app! No matter what style of photo you have, there is a wonderful enhancement to your image to be discovered!
Immediately uninstalled
by J.CASSEZZA on 2021/02/01 18:44
I’m sorry, but this new trend of requiring you be to commit to what I call the “timed release subscription” is spreading like wildfire, and needs to stop. Left unchecked there will eventually be no concept of a free app. Furthermore, I contend that the companies employing this technique are preying on the statistically probable percentage of people that either procrastinate too long or simply forget to cancel before the “trial period” ends. At the end of the day you shouldn’t have to commit to a subscription, time-released or not, before you’ve even had a chance to open and try the app. For this reason, when I install an app and am forced to agree to a subscription as soon as I launch it for the first time, I immediately uninstall it and leave this review; hoping to encourage others to do the same, and in turn begin, hopefully, to discourage developers from utilizing this scheme. EDIT: It was unclear to me how to use the app without subscribing, I couldn’t seem to get past the screen prompting me to choose a subscription.
Doesn’t really work
by Mama de Francia on 2021/02/01 18:34
This is such a cool concept abd for the few times that it works - it’s amazing and definitely worth it. Unfortunately, the app has serious glitches and bugs that take forever to get fixed and renders the app useless, which makes it not worth it. My advice: save your money until they sort themselves out -
Brilliant app

Auto cropping of pics
by MilesMaxwell on 2021/02/01 09:32
I don’t like that some pics are auto cropped so much you can’t even see the subject of the photo. For a paid app this needs work!!
Subscriptions
by Unknown sergal on 2021/02/01 04:11
I’d rather pay 100 some odd dollars for a lifetime subscription, just sayin
Sneaky sneaky
by RamaKang on 2021/02/01 00:55
3-day free trial starts AFTER they charge your account for the full year... and that’s just dirty. I’m legitimately going to dispute the charge. I wanted to see if it was trash before they charged me. Super basic app. Professional level photography comes out cool.... but it’s not a far cry from an Instagram filter.
Freezes
by zursch on 2021/02/01 00:30
Since update iOS to 14.4, app refuses to work. Have deleted and reloaded, same result. Please fix soon or I will ask for a full refund of my year subscription.
Horrible since iOS 14.4 update

I loved this app until most recent iOS update. Now, it freezes constantly. It’s essentially unusable now.
Disappointing
by Gaslight1944 on 2021/01/31 17:44
Every time I open the app it freezes. I have to reset my screen to get it to open again. I have the latest iPhone with plenty of space. Extremely disappointed ☹️
100% buggy- do not download!

First of all this is a subscription with a 3 day trial... okay. Open the application 8 time with a crash on each try. Good bye! Canceled

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.

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 Cyntrifical 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.
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.
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!!
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.
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!
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.
Immediately uninstalled
by J.CASSEZZA on 2021/02/01 18:44
I’m sorry, but this new trend of requiring you be to commit to what I call the “timed release subscription” is spreading like wildfire, and needs to stop. Left unchecked there will eventually be no concept of a free app. Furthermore, I contend that the companies employing this technique are preying on the statistically probable percentage of people that either procrastinate too long or simply forget to cancel before the “trial period” ends. At the end of the day you shouldn’t have to commit to a subscription, time-released or not, before you’ve even had a chance to open and try the app. For this reason, when I install an app and am forced to agree to a subscription as soon as I launch it for the first time, I immediately uninstall it and leave this review; hoping to encourage others to do the same, and in turn begin, hopefully, to discourage developers from utilizing this scheme. EDIT: It was unclear to me how to use the app without subscribing, I couldn’t seem to get past the screen prompting me to choose a subscription.
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.
Great app...when it works
by Jetsetter13 on 2020/07/23 10:38
This app is great for editing photos. Super easy to use and it has some amazing filters. However....I notice that this app crashes all the time, and it’s usually while you are trying to save an edit. I have tried everything to prevent this (delete and reinstall app, restart device, close all apps, etc) and nothing seems to fix it. Magically it will start working a few days later without issue. This is extremely aggravating when you have spent time trying to edit a pic and have all your edits trashed when the app crashes. I’m happy that I didn’t pay for the subscription
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!
App freezes
by SlowBrother on 2021/02/11 19:42
Contacted by Developer who suggested work around while they try to fix it. Changing setting for photo access from “All Photos” to “Selected Photos“ gets rid of the App Freeze problem. I have changed my rating from 1 star to 4 stars as a result. Version 4.1.2 No change. Still freezes upon startup. Version 4.1.1. This app was good enough for me to subscribe for a year, but since the last update, it no longer works. Freezes upon startup. Been a couple of weeks and no fix. I have the previous version on my iPad and that still works even with the iOS 14.4 update. So I don’t think it is an iOS problem. Don’t bother until they fix it.
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.
To subscribe or not subscribe?
by rmbfll on 2020/01/02 21:06
I came back to Prisma after sometime away, I liked it when it was free (or mostly free?) and I still like it. But, I opted for the three free trial days and intended to subscribe to the annual premium version however I see that the iPhone and iPad have different functionality. The iPad doesn't seem to include any fine tuning options like the iPhone version. I deleted and reinstalled the app a number of times to see if this was just a glitch. No luck, I can open a photo, apply a filter then just save or share. It's disappointing to not be able to fine tune the images on the iPad. I contacted customer support recently but haven't heard from them yet. So, in the meantime, I think the price is too high for such limited functions.
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.
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.
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.
Won’t work
by mothmeds on 2018/12/30 20:12
I’ve had this app forever now, and have always loved it! It’s something that I like to use to mess around with pictures to make them look interesting, but mostly my own art. For the past two days, the app WILL NOT WORK. No matter which filter I click on, it automatically shows a pop up saying something along the lines of ‘something went wrong, please try again later’. But the problem is, when I try again later it still doesn’t work. I’m honestly upset because I paid almost 20$ for a premium subscription, and the app doesn’t even work. Until this problem is fixed, I’m rating the app 2 stars. Please please please fix the Prisma app.
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.
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.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️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.
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.
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!
How about just write “start 3-day free trail”
by nkjnnchrnickname on 2019/12/03 03:14
After click the “start the free traill”, you are in a camera view. The interface is so minimalism that you didn’t even realize. Yes, on the top left corner, there is the small icon for settings that, by going inside, you can turn-off the auto renewal!!! If not doing that, after 3 days you will automatically renew with 1year premium subscription. How about just write “start 3-day free trail” and make life easier! Or even just do auto renew by months. It will definitely make it less like a trap. Upgraded from the old version trying to show a friend non-photoshop method to make a image sketch like. I knew this is a great app but this whole subscription experience is not fun at all.
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 $20 a year. Do I believe that developers should get paid for their work? Of course! But Prisma fails to build on its original thesis from two years ago and brings no further innovation to the table.
Privacy changes
by Preschadmin on 2018/08/06 00:16
I just read a review and want to support it. The new privacy policy is vague and may be implying for rights (or lack there of) to things I will no longer be able to control. I too may have to just delete the app since I am not going to check boxes two and three. I liked the app, it was fun, but you aren’t going to get me to sign away privacy and allow you to process my personal data, or allow you to send me notices anytime you want.
Incredible results… when you get them.
by RansomedNBlood on 2018/03/21 12:39
I really like the results I get with the Prisma app. The wide range of filters and the fact that you can vary the intensity is really cool! The process is painfully slow however. Many times you get a message to check back later because the servers are full. Other than this it's a great app... if you need another monthly bill to add to your collection. Buy a different app that you don’t have to pay monthly for.
Nope can’t do it!!!
by TurbanChin on 2018/04/15 14:22
I have had this app since it was invented back when I had a iPhone 6S... I now have an iPhone 8Plus... that’s 4 years!!! Back then this app was “free” and the absolute best app for turning your photos into real impressive fabulous fantastic pics that wowed me and people I showed every time!!!!! That was then, this is now... 4 years later this app turns into a paid subscription app monthly!!!! Nope can’t do it!!! [You] could at the least give those people who originally downloaded your app first, within let’s say the first 6 months to 1 year, at least give those people the app for free!!!! Geez. Or a flat fee, I would pay 2$ 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.
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.
No more
by Kay-mc on 2018/08/09 17:10
I’ve had issues with this app for a while, but today was the last straw. Since the update today, I’m seeing photos of people I don’t follow and none of the ones I do follow...WTH. Also, a few months ago this year, I tried to log in and it basically prompted me to open a new account like I never had one to begin with, so I’ve lost access to my old account, photos, and followers. I contacted support about this and the issue was never resolved. The filters are nice but not worth the hassle.
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.
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.
Most free features gone

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.
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!
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.
Beware! Sketchy Subscription Practices
by Slim Hippie on 2020/09/20 00:08
Super upset by this app. I signed up for a monthly subscription. Turns out, they automatically charge you for the annual subscription rate even though I selected monthly when I signed up. Tried to request a change or refund. No option to do so. Bad on Apple for making it so easy for app developers to access our money and bad on Prisma for not having a direct support line to get help. Not cool. My advice: the app is good. However, when you sign up quadruple check your subscription settings and know that even if you’ve selected monthly they’ll probably charge you the annual rate and give you zero options to fix it.
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.
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.

Locked up my phone, wouldn’t work. Also “free 3 day trial” they immediately charged my account $24.99 for a year.
Unusable paid premium app
by Aeneah on 2021/02/25 02:29
It doesn’t work for me at all. I paid for the Premium and can’t use it. I’ve deleted, re-downloaded, restarted the iPhone to no avail. Very frustrating.
Spam
by Geo_ on 2021/02/24 19:57
You cannot do anything unless you subscribe. 🤬 update: The developer responded to my review and said there there are things that can be done without their outrageously priced subscription. If there is anything that the app will do without a subscription, they are well hidden. I certainly can’t find them. Apple needs to have a ZERO STARS option.
Never works!!
by DesertSully on 2021/02/24 19:46
I bought this and have only been able to use TWICE!! Always freezes, and/or boots you out! I want a refund!
Worthless
by Sad today on 2021/02/23 23:16
Has quit working ! I paid for this and used to like it . Do not know how to get it working .
App freezes
by OlyDB on 2021/02/22 19:19
Lovely concept, however it is freezing at launch after about 2 seconds of functionality. I have an iPhone 11 with plenty of memory. Also have a subscription which I am now regretting. Sent a note to support but haven't gotten a response. I urge caution in purchasing until/if they get the kinks out.
It doesn’t wor!!!
by jlperez67 on 2021/02/21 18:12
I used to have Prisma in previous iPhones. I installed it in a new iPhone 12 Pro Max and the app crashes all the time. I can’t make it work. I tried several times uninstalling and reinstalling with no success. I’m dropping from this app unless someone can help with a solution.
Don’t waste your money
by ValleyGirl89 on 2021/02/21 15:59
I was able to purchase this app without any problems and really enjoyed seeing all the different filters. However, now I can’t even get the app to work!! I open it and it’s just frozen. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling but nothing happens. Still frozen!!! I tried clicking on support link but that doesn’t take you anywhere you can send them a message. I paid for a full year and definitely want my money back. Not sure how I will be able to do that when I can’t even submit my complaint.

Prisma- found it again!
by 1MelPhi on 2021/02/20 08:50
It used the Prisma App many years ago and loved it - then lost it- just rediscovered and I am happy for it!
Do no want!

Tried stopping subscription. I didn’t get a chance to use it.
No makes u pay

Does not open
by MeWagg on 2021/02/18 22:30
The app was quick to require me to commit to the $29.99 annual fee in order to access the 7-day free trial but the app freezes upon opening. Can’t even try it. Will be extremely upset if I’m charged for an app I never get to try. So much for the recent update.

by Ezzmasd on 2021/02/18 19:14
I wish it be free because we can not pay, we have not credit card.
Don’t bother!
by gonzo222 on 2021/02/18 17:19
Update: now it does not even allow photos to load!! 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.
I thought it was a 3 day trial
by txflood on 2021/02/18 02:35
I went to unsubscribe, down loaded on Sunday evening and went to unsubscribe today Wednesday.. I was already charge for a year subscription. I would like my money refunded!
Cannot cancel you are locked in!!!
by paula77401 on 2021/02/17 14:28
No response from customer service when tried to cancel within the 3 day “free” trial. Be very aware!! Developer responded as it’s an Apple issue!! Buyer beware!!!!! They just want your money!! They take zero responsibility - always someone else’s fault. Bunch of thieves!!!!
Didn’t work
by Czthday on 2021/02/17 04:23
I download added this and it froze completely. I couldn’t do anything. I closed the app, turned off my phone and started over. It still didn’t work. I cancelled the subscription and deleted the app.
Prism Stalls on iPad
by Palsek on 2021/02/16 19:41
I’m sorry but paying $29 / year for an iPad app that freezes upon opening is crazy. Running iOS 14.4 on both iPhone and iPad and app freezes on both device.
App has become inaccessible
by SanDiego_Sue on 2021/02/16 17:18
My Prisma app got slower and slower to open over the last several months and now won’t open at all no matter how many times I delete/reboot/reinstall/retry.
AFTER IOS UPGRADE PRISMA STOPPED
by DKWieneke on 2021/02/16 10:35
App worked and was my favorite. Then after latest upgrade to iPhone PRISMA app freezes on startup. Got latest PRISMA app upgrade and still freezes. Sad.
Just trying it ,
by maemoore on 2021/02/16 03:46
Hope so far.
Buyer beware
by AiP713 on 2021/02/16 03:29
The app stopped working. Frozen on all my devices, despite deleting and downloading again. The company did not respond to emails asking for help. Horrible experience. Trust me: DO NOT BUY annual subscription. I don't know how Apple can allow them to continue seeking this. What a rip-off.
Great!
by car chase on 2021/02/15 14:10
Really amazing
Why the change
by soleew on 2021/02/14 17:57
I used to be able to save an edited picture to my photos. Now I can’t.
Crashes and crashes and then wants $$
by Zak in the ATL on 2021/02/14 14:23
This app was once a joy. Now it’s a ploy. Sad when commerce kills technology.
Used once and now it freezes
by sdonnal on 2021/02/14 13:52
Every time I go to use the app it freezes and does not work at all. It’s beyond frustrating!!!
Turn's pic sideways
by BassEdge on 2021/02/14 05:33
Whenever I try to add a background, it turns the picture sideways which doesn't blend with the background like it should. Aside from this it works like it should. If this is fixed, I give it five stars.
Used to be 5 star rating
by LuBall on 2021/02/13 20:50
It’s freezing up and crashing again! I pay for this and will not renew my subscription if it isn’t fixed. I love this app when it WORKS!
It does not work on iPhone 12
by NWCrazyPhotos on 2021/02/13 20:41
Wow, used to work great. Now, nothings happens and it locks up instantly. I purchased the subscription and now it is useless. How do I get a version that works or my money back?
Doesn’t work?
by ThisgirlAutumn on 2021/02/13 18:30
I keep trying to use the app but it literally just keeps freezing and then I can’t use it.... I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. Kinda sad to me
Usage
by ScrappyQT on 2021/02/13 15:56
No instructions. Can’t use
Absolute Trash
by spazz27 on 2021/02/12 19:13
This is absolute trash! If you have a large photo album, when it opens, sooner or later it will just freeze. It can’t process the amount of photos, as if it ran out of computing power. I have the latest iPhone 12 Pro Max, and i restarted the phone, and reinstalled the app. Same garbage. I cancelled my subscription within 1 hour of downloading it. Imagine how bas it was that I couldn’t handle it anymore? Garbage garbage garbage!!!
Not recommended
by Jose Antonio Oliva on 2021/02/12 15:06
As always it free to install and the moment, you install it you have to pay to use it. Just show and charge at the beginning before people waste their time installing.
Freezes
by Crash n Freeze on 2021/02/12 12:19
Yes, it free
No longer works as of 11-Feb-2021
by j j c 1 2 7 on 2021/02/12 05:39
Past two updates have completely broken app. It now opens to photo catalog, goes unresponsive and spikes CPU on my iPhone 11 Pro. Same result after killing all apps and rebooting phone.
Lock up my iPad immediately after launch
by Emoose3 on 2021/02/12 03:11
I never get past the first screen. I even relaunched my tablet, to no improvement.
Subscription fee ? No thanks
by jengo on 2021/02/11 23:08
The best way to get me to delete your app and give a bad rating is by having a subscription fee.
Absolute garbage
by BenGiroux on 2021/02/11 22:49
App freezes, doesn’t respond to taps, and is essentially unusable. I immediately cancelled my free trial.
App freezes
by SlowBrother on 2021/02/11 19:42
Contacted by Developer who suggested work around while they try to fix it. Changing setting for photo access from “All Photos” to “Selected Photos“ gets rid of the App Freeze problem. I have changed my rating from 1 star to 4 stars as a result. Version 4.1.2 No change. Still freezes upon startup. Version 4.1.1. This app was good enough for me to subscribe for a year, but since the last update, it no longer works. Freezes upon startup. Been a couple of weeks and no fix. I have the previous version on my iPad and that still works even with the iOS 14.4 update. So I don’t think it is an iOS problem. Don’t bother until they fix it.
Nice but needs more templates.
by Counter factual on 2021/02/11 17:49
I have not tried to save but like what I see so far.
Want money back!!!!
by FUZZINO on 2021/02/11 16:53
I have a year subscription. It won’t even let me choose a photo. Does nothing! Then Quits! Not happy
Not happy
by SultryDiva on 2021/02/11 03:29
I just downloaded this app however I can’t use it because it freezes immediately upon opening it. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and it does the same thing. I will try again if it doesn’t work.... I will delete this app.
Horrible
by jimmy stew on 2021/02/11 00:41
App is useless, will not stop crashing
Pay me
by dmydrlng on 2021/02/10 21:00
I’m experiencing issues with the app that others users reported having over 2 years ago. It seems they’ve failed to address these concerns and the fact that you have to pay for this is ridiculous. It worked for the first two photos and will no longer work at all no matter what I do. Thankfully I am in the trial and can cancel but as far as I’m concerned they need to paying people to use this app and not the other way around. You want me to be your beta tester pay me for it. Deleted.
Refund
by JXManc on 2021/02/10 17:21
Sub-par editing but their data collection is on point. Canceled free trial and still got charger $30 with no refund or reply back to request.
Frozen screen
by TexBottleBlonde on 2021/02/09 23:02
I am paying a monthly fee for nothing. I deleted the app awhile back and waited for an update. Just reinstalled and nothing works. It’s like a photo of the icons, doesn’t respond to clicks.
Garbage
by glorbo95 on 2021/02/09 17:07
I got roped into buying a whole year of the service because I forgot to cancel the free trial needed to even use the app... Now the app doesn’t even do anything. It freezes immediately upon opening and just doesn’t do anything. Really disappointed.
Looks and sounds great but!
by Trevor1090 on 2021/02/09 12:14
Looks and sounds like a great app, but after multiple attempts to use, including removing and reinstalling, app does not work. Will open and shows your pics, but is frozen. Can not even open settings. Have stopped renewal and am requesting reimbursement via this review. Thank you.
I love this app

by mwfar on 2021/02/09 01:16
Used to be my favorite photo app but it completely stopped working two weeks ago. It opens but totally freezes. Completely Unusable. Do not purchase until this is fixed!!!
Paid, but doesn’t work
by vawahine on 2021/02/08 23:06
I have contacted the developer. They have not given me a solution to make the app I paid for functional. Not have I been offered a refund.
Not worth it
by Steve98166 on 2021/02/08 15:51
This app used to be free, but now the devs got greedy and you need a subscription to use it. Screw that.
App Frozen
by bkbrew76 on 2021/02/08 15:28
I really wish I could find information as to why this app has stopped working. Completely frozen every time I try to select a photo to use. App support link just sends you to their webpage which provides no help. I use this app daily & have paid for a subscription for it to be completely useless. Developers please send an update with a bug fix!

Crash city. Very disappointing
by Bradanzig on 2021/02/08 03:24
App is trash and constantly freezes and crashes. Thank god I didn’t sign up/pay for the premium features right away, otherwise I’d be angrily yelling for a refund right now. Really unfortunate that it’s essentially worthless hard drive space filler, I was excited to try it at first.
No longer opening in iOS 14.4...

by Unored5 on 2021/02/07 04:29
I would love to change this back to 5 stars...I purchased the annual subscription and now the app is useless. It’s frozen and doesn’t load images. Tried on iPad and iPhone. Help from developers!! Please.
App no longer loads
by Taaza on 2021/02/06 23:51
Went to use Prisma after not using for a while; found out that it's now subscription-based. Fine. Signed up for trial, went back to use Prisma, freezes on splash screen. Turned phone on and off, tried to open Prisma, still frozen on select photo screen and no buttons work. Deleted app 3x, reloaded app but still the same - just freezes on select picture screen. something is strangely wrong with your app. I have an iPhone 12 Pro running iOS 14 so I do have the latest software and phone. Cancelled subscription. Too bad. I really enjoyed the art-like filters on this app when it was functional. 😥
Outstanding
by Eddie 1738202 on 2021/02/06 14:30
There’s tons of unique and interesting filters that are absolutely gorgeous. There’s one for every picture I got ✌️
Constantly freezes... so frustrating
by DURIANPEET on 2021/02/06 03:57
I wish I knew if the app worked but it freezes after just a few steps. I have deleted and reloaded multiple times and I’m not sure it’s worth trying further.
Saving issue - Not Working
by Skippywan771976 on 2021/02/05 08:39
So I got this and it’s an ok tool, but it won’t save anything I edit. Which of course makes it worthless to me and I’m going to try and get a refund, because the app is faulty. Really disappointed.
Does not work since iOS update.

by fusion102485959/929 on 2021/02/04 03:43
Paid for the service and it freezes up about 2 seconds after opening the app. No exaggeration. Absolutely terrible. They should pull it if they can’t make it work. Reeks of fraud.
Yes it’s great I used to own it but now I have to pay for it
by JoelieJoelie on 2021/02/04 00:04
As far as I can tell there’s no way to use it for free. It’s $30 a year. They say you can use it for free with limited filters but I can figure out how to do that. Pretty sure I used to own it but it doesn’t recognize that… La Di Da

Great App when it works
by ohiowater on 2021/02/03 14:58
Loved this App when I downloaded it I subscribed to the premium version but shortly after it’s completely quit working. I sent a tech support ticket in with no response. Uninstalled, reload to newest version. No change very disappointing, don’t waste your money next step is to try to get a refund for my subscription don’t think that will be fun or easy.
They trick you when you subscribe
by Barbie_Brown__I_Am on 2021/02/03 13:59
I signed up for a trial and $2.99 a month subscription ..... “somehow” I went to cancel my trial cause I sky like the quality of the app and it charged me for $29.99 year subscription..... I will be calling Apple to dispute this charge
Love it so far!

by hdheixnsgehzif on 2021/02/03 01:18
App freezes over and over again. Deleted twice completely and reinstalled, still. Excellent when it worked, definitely not worth the money I paid.
Great app—when it works
by DeRochier on 2021/02/02 07:05
Prisma has been my favorite photo filtering app for years but I finally canceled my subscription because it stopped working—again. I launch the app and it freezes. No error message, just completely unresponsive to all input. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, rebooted my iPhone and... nothing. These type of issues have always plagued the app. It’s great when it works but I’m tired of the continuous frustration. That’s why I canceled my subscription. Buyer beware.
No sirve mi aplicación desde hace varios días

Subscription bait
by Medragon59 on 2021/02/01 20:49
Baits you to download and then hit you with sub only option and one of those “free trials” trying to auto renew trick you. Not a tactic that shows you believe in your product.
Amazing results every time!
by The Guy That Failed Everything on 2021/02/01 20:28
I love this app! No matter what style of photo you have, there is a wonderful enhancement to your image to be discovered!

I’m sorry, but this new trend of requiring you be to commit to what I call the “timed release subscription” is spreading like wildfire, and needs to stop. Left unchecked there will eventually be no concept of a free app. Furthermore, I contend that the companies employing this technique are preying on the statistically probable percentage of people that either procrastinate too long or simply forget to cancel before the “trial period” ends. At the end of the day you shouldn’t have to commit to a subscription, time-released or not, before you’ve even had a chance to open and try the app. For this reason, when I install an app and am forced to agree to a subscription as soon as I launch it for the first time, I immediately uninstall it and leave this review; hoping to encourage others to do the same, and in turn begin, hopefully, to discourage developers from utilizing this scheme. EDIT: It was unclear to me how to use the app without subscribing, I couldn’t seem to get past the screen prompting me to choose a subscription.
Doesn’t really work
by Mama de Francia on 2021/02/01 18:34
This is such a cool concept abd for the few times that it works - it’s amazing and definitely worth it. Unfortunately, the app has serious glitches and bugs that take forever to get fixed and renders the app useless, which makes it not worth it. My advice: save your money until they sort themselves out -
Brilliant app

Auto cropping of pics
by MilesMaxwell on 2021/02/01 09:32
I don’t like that some pics are auto cropped so much you can’t even see the subject of the photo. For a paid app this needs work!!
Subscriptions

I’d rather pay 100 some odd dollars for a lifetime subscription, just sayin
Sneaky sneaky
by RamaKang on 2021/02/01 00:55
3-day free trial starts AFTER they charge your account for the full year... and that’s just dirty. I’m legitimately going to dispute the charge. I wanted to see if it was trash before they charged me. Super basic app. Professional level photography comes out cool.... but it’s not a far cry from an Instagram filter.
Freezes
by zursch on 2021/02/01 00:30
Since update iOS to 14.4, app refuses to work. Have deleted and reloaded, same result. Please fix soon or I will ask for a full refund of my year subscription.
Horrible since iOS 14.4 update
by Kawaiso on 2021/01/31 18:33
I loved this app until most recent iOS update. Now, it freezes constantly. It’s essentially unusable now.
Disappointing
by Gaslight1944 on 2021/01/31 17:44
Every time I open the app it freezes. I have to reset my screen to get it to open again. I have the latest iPhone with plenty of space. Extremely disappointed ☹️
100% buggy- do not download!
by Cfdt on 2021/01/30 17:49
First of all this is a subscription with a 3 day trial... okay. Open the application 8 time with a crash on each try. Good bye! Canceled
Simple

by BocaInvestor on 2021/01/30 12:53
So much time wasted with constant advertising trying to switch you to paid version. Deleting free version now.
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 Cyntrifical 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.
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.
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!!
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.
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!
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.

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.
Great app...when it works
by Jetsetter13 on 2020/07/23 10:38
This app is great for editing photos. Super easy to use and it has some amazing filters. However....I notice that this app crashes all the time, and it’s usually while you are trying to save an edit. I have tried everything to prevent this (delete and reinstall app, restart device, close all apps, etc) and nothing seems to fix it. Magically it will start working a few days later without issue. This is extremely aggravating when you have spent time trying to edit a pic and have all your edits trashed when the app crashes. I’m happy that I didn’t pay for the subscription
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!
App freezes
by SlowBrother on 2021/02/11 19:42
Contacted by Developer who suggested work around while they try to fix it. Changing setting for photo access from “All Photos” to “Selected Photos“ gets rid of the App Freeze problem. I have changed my rating from 1 star to 4 stars as a result. Version 4.1.2 No change. Still freezes upon startup. Version 4.1.1. This app was good enough for me to subscribe for a year, but since the last update, it no longer works. Freezes upon startup. Been a couple of weeks and no fix. I have the previous version on my iPad and that still works even with the iOS 14.4 update. So I don’t think it is an iOS problem. Don’t bother until they fix it.
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.
To subscribe or not subscribe?
by rmbfll on 2020/01/02 21:06
I came back to Prisma after sometime away, I liked it when it was free (or mostly free?) and I still like it. But, I opted for the three free trial days and intended to subscribe to the annual premium version however I see that the iPhone and iPad have different functionality. The iPad doesn't seem to include any fine tuning options like the iPhone version. I deleted and reinstalled the app a number of times to see if this was just a glitch. No luck, I can open a photo, apply a filter then just save or share. It's disappointing to not be able to fine tune the images on the iPad. I contacted customer support recently but haven't heard from them yet. So, in the meantime, I think the price is too high for such limited functions.
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.
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.
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.
Won’t work
by mothmeds on 2018/12/30 20:12
I’ve had this app forever now, and have always loved it! It’s something that I like to use to mess around with pictures to make them look interesting, but mostly my own art. For the past two days, the app WILL NOT WORK. No matter which filter I click on, it automatically shows a pop up saying something along the lines of ‘something went wrong, please try again later’. But the problem is, when I try again later it still doesn’t work. I’m honestly upset because I paid almost 20$ for a premium subscription, and the app doesn’t even work. Until this problem is fixed, I’m rating the app 2 stars. Please please please fix the Prisma app.
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.
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.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️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.
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.
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!
How about just write “start 3-day free trail”
by nkjnnchrnickname on 2019/12/03 03:14
After click the “start the free traill”, you are in a camera view. The interface is so minimalism that you didn’t even realize. Yes, on the top left corner, there is the small icon for settings that, by going inside, you can turn-off the auto renewal!!! If not doing that, after 3 days you will automatically renew with 1year premium subscription. How about just write “start 3-day free trail” and make life easier! Or even just do auto renew by months. It will definitely make it less like a trap. Upgraded from the old version trying to show a friend non-photoshop method to make a image sketch like. I knew this is a great app but this whole subscription experience is not fun at all.
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.

I just read a review and want to support it. The new privacy policy is vague and may be implying for rights (or lack there of) to things I will no longer be able to control. I too may have to just delete the app since I am not going to check boxes two and three. I liked the app, it was fun, but you aren’t going to get me to sign away privacy and allow you to process my personal data, or allow you to send me notices anytime you want.
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.
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.
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.
No more

I’ve had issues with this app for a while, but today was the last straw. Since the update today, I’m seeing photos of people I don’t follow and none of the ones I do follow...WTH. Also, a few months ago this year, I tried to log in and it basically prompted me to open a new account like I never had one to begin with, so I’ve lost access to my old account, photos, and followers. I contacted support about this and the issue was never resolved. The filters are nice but not worth the hassle.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Beware! Sketchy Subscription Practices
by Slim Hippie on 2020/09/20 00:08
Super upset by this app. I signed up for a monthly subscription. Turns out, they automatically charge you for the annual subscription rate even though I selected monthly when I signed up. Tried to request a change or refund. No option to do so. Bad on Apple for making it so easy for app developers to access our money and bad on Prisma for not having a direct support line to get help. Not cool. My advice: the app is good. However, when you sign up quadruple check your subscription settings and know that even if you’ve selected monthly they’ll probably charge you the annual rate and give you zero options to fix it.
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.
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.
