Desperate

You now have to pay to even take a screenshot of the picture, imagine being that desperate for money 🤦‍♀️😭
Selfish creator
by Zooozx on 2021/10/10 07:54
Why should I pay twice and for a subscription , I already did a couple of years ago when I first purchased the app. I’m done with this
Great app
by kakaisjnddu on 2021/10/10 06:35
Way better and powerful than ps. Totally loved it. Very user friendly interface. Appreciate the free one week trial.
Love itttttt

Not even close
by roguelogo on 2021/10/08 20:40
It totally does not do what it shows in it’s facebook adds. It is NOT free but performs like most of the free apps. It also has adds even in the paid version. If it were not a pay app it would be good.
Not free
by Andsc on 2021/10/08 12:22
This app is on the top free app chart but you have to pay a pricey subscription if you want to use.

Money scam
by Brookfitness on 2021/10/05 09:17
I selected 2.99 monthly fee and received an annual charge of $43.00. I will be fighting this and now I don’t even care about this app. Do what the agreement is not more.
Text gone?

October 2021: Did the option to add text get removed? Update June 4: Still crashing iphone XR Also, they should add text to make life easier My favorite app that has never before crashed on me has finally started a cycle of crashing constantly while I’m heavily editing and causing me to lose all my progress. Happened since I’ve updated. Update: Still crashing

Already have a subscription
by jcvcoop on 2021/09/30 23:50
I already have a subscription but it won’t let me transfer it to my new account.. don’t offer something for free for years and then get greedy and ask people to start paying.. just go on and be a sorry company and not offer a free version
Free 7 day trial???
by mommadubs44 on 2021/09/28 04:03
I downloaded this to edit one picture with the “guarantee” of a free seven day trial. The instructions said it would be easy to cancel in the settings tab. There’s absolutely nothing in the settings tab to let me cancel… frustrated.
Removing this app
by Sempiturnel on 2021/09/28 01:55
I’ve been using this app periodically for the last year or so. And suddenly I have to be a VIP to use basic features that were free not too long ago? LOL, deleted! Life is expensive enough!
Rip off
by genzger on 2021/09/28 00:09
I got this app because I saw all the good reviews. I paid $4 to get it but I can’t do anything on it unless I subscribe to a payment plan. Be upfront with this and don’t charge us if you are already pushing a subscription! I will not use or recommend

Need A Refund
by pinkdragonflyxx on 2021/09/26 09:26
This is the SECOND time this app has charged me when I haven't selected to buy the premium version, but now it's charged me $38 for an app I forget about half the time. I canceled the subscription the first time it charged me. And then it chooses the next highest price and charges me for that instead. I canceled the subscription AGAIN and deleted the app this time. Please help me get a refund. I don't just have money I can throw away and this is just frustrating.
Features
by capatalize on insecurity on 2021/09/25 19:52
They got rid of the most popular feature and if you think I’m gonna pay for….. you thought wrong Facetune.

Silly App - also, don’t trust Apple
by Toyacita on 2021/09/24 20:05
The app doesn’t do anything it claims to do in the Instagram ads. Waste of $ especially when they pre-charge you BEFORE the trial period has ended. Request refund before 60 days. Unfortunately I had two family deaths around that time of small children & was understandably distracted. Apple was not willing to even try to attempt to provide customer service on this issue. Please don’t expect anyone to do their jobs... That is not an expectation you can have anymore especially at a corporation that only cares about the bottom dollar.
Removed features that now make you pay
by Rosalina4184 on 2021/09/24 10:10
Everyone downloaded this app to use the reshape feature that use to be free but now they make you pay for it and won’t let you screenshot. It just makes us delete the app and use others that have it for free.
stop putting facetune in the file name how embarrassing
by 6abii on 2021/09/23 02:59

The developer becomes so selfish and money hungry . He make every feature paid (return the paint free)

This used to be my favorite app, until they got greedy. Now you can’t do anything without paying, even the stuff they label as free, isn’t! Such a waste!
Unable to use

Privacy issues
by big island on 2021/09/14 19:39
I am sure the features are cool, but I never got that far. Most apps let you pick specific photos to allow access to. This app does not. They want full access to your photo library, your location and your microphone. Not ok with me. So I deleted.
Cheap
by AliciaB808 on 2021/09/12 18:08
This app used to be good until they started making you pay for every feature possible. It’s no longer worth my time and will be using other apps

REQUIRES access to your social media account to use
by Kilgrey on 2021/09/11 23:46
I deleted it as soon as I saw that it required me to login with my apple account, gmail or Facebook account. Why not charge 1.99 for the app? If this app does what it claims I would be happy to pay for it. But I don’t want to give another random company access to my accounts.
Ummm...
by trash panda 69 on 2021/09/11 22:45
Ok so I have had this app for a long time and I just uninstalled it. The creators are talented no doubt but they have gotten money hungry. Things that used to be free on the app are suddenly needed with a subscription and everything that isn’t can already be done on my phone in photos. I understand if you have a subscription for the newer items or something but making things that were previously free something you have to pay for? I don’t think so, not to mention the price, it’s 7.99 a month which in my eyes isn’t worth the money, not to mention it’s always trying to get me to review and review like fine ok here’s your review your not gonna like what comes out of it though lol. All in all don’t waste your money I’m sure there are other developers out there who won’t try to screw you out of your money.
Subscription required.
by Azulfwoggy on 2021/09/11 22:06
Why did I pay $3.00 to download this app only to have to sign up for a subscription to save my photos?
Veiled promises and unrequited love
by ClassicalCajun on 2021/09/11 16:13
I used to love you, but you’ve backed out on the very promises our vows we’re based upon 💔 I don’t want make this about money. It’s really about the kids. We only started out wanting two, but those two became so greedy that we had to take on second jobs to support them, and now we have no time left in our relationship for the love that started us. Now I don’t know if I even love our kids anymore… So the fun is over when I have to pay for what use to be a stellar, free app. Now the basic intuitive features of face “smoothing” and lighting and background editing are just trials, and if I still have to pay a monthly or annual fee for a subscription of mediocre cheap-looking effects. I keep checking back to see if these features have improved with upgrades/fixes and if there are improvements to the free setting. Not to date. I will continue reading pro-reviews to see if the subscription of $70 for this app outshines Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions and learning curves.
Just a no
by vg. g gvtvtgy on 2021/09/10 23:07
This is a 1 just no it is bad you can’t even save your work no
It’s ok

What was once free now costs $8 monthly
by britneyjean6223 on 2021/09/10 15:53
It’s unfortunate when a great app that was once free now has a price tag. I love the Facetune apps. But I hate that what was free in the original app now costs money in the second version. They should have included all the free stuff from the first version and then hooked you with the new and improved things they have. Freaking LAME that they didn’t.
Greedy developers
by MidnightSon13 on 2021/09/08 23:00
Yet another app that was fantastic even in its lite (free) version, and is now taking away many features and making you pay for them. I’ve had this app since the first version, or at least when it was just ‘Facetune’ and it’s been great! But now, many basic features that we’re used to using and frankly, ones that are necessary for even quick photo editing are now not available unless you pay for a subscription. Not cool… I’ll be doing 100% of my editing now on Lightroom and Photofox.
Cheap update
by Cammie.Cat on 2021/09/04 22:11
They recently updated the app to make you pay for anything worth using that used to be free. Download something better.

Great but,
by Dhdebxd on 2021/09/03 22:28
The app is great, it really needs a queue feature though. It’s so hard to tell if you’ve already edited one or a copy of it. I’d love to see that happen. Also there should be an edit history bc sometimes I’ll corner myself in with edits that I can’t undo but need to causing me to have to restart.
Waste of time
by 1995Schenk on 2021/09/03 19:39
Don’t download this says free but you have to buy stuff in order to use it like I’m just use some of the stuff but when you even try to re edit your photos it won’t even show up for you to edited it
Charges Full Year When Signed Up for Month
by lovely-red-head on 2021/09/03 17:29
I thought I would try out the app for a month at the $2.99 cost but lo and behold, a charge of $35.99 appeared on my bank account today. Not cool. I would like this resolved ASAP. I will be contacting my bank to dispute the charge if I don’t receive a response from Support. Not happy.
Logged out
by 1mjustsaying on 2021/09/03 15:40
It logged me out and I have a yearly subscription. I can’t log back in with my Norma account. Keeps thinking I’m a new user and all my photos were erased.WTFFFF
The home page is gone
by Snapdragon 925 on 2021/09/03 13:56
Replaced permanently (apparently) by a page that INSISTS the user sign up for some damned bio page. Why?!?
Arrangement of subscriptions
by jjjjjjjaaaaeeee on 2021/09/03 05:13
The price of the video and retouch subscriptions are right next to each other and the same price. Accidentally chose video when I don’t use that. Now I’m stuck paying for a year? I accidentally let my retouch subscription lapse for two days and because they’re forcing video this happens. I won’t be using this app anymore. They have bad support.
U are ruining the experience
by isaior on 2021/09/02 19:33
Every update makes the app more difficult to use. Now you want a login. Now we cannot select specific photos instead you want access to ALL photos. Come on f*^%ers, enough of it!
Uninstalled
by fuhgjnk on 2021/09/02 03:29
I’ve had this app for years. I’ve had a subscription before but found it silly since the only thing I used was one of the free features, so I canceled it. Now that feature is behind a paywall. I feel they should have added new premium features for subscription not taken away old free features. Now they’ve made it so you can’t even screenshot your OWN photo to save it. If the developers would have just added something new and worthwhile then maybe I would be a subscriber instead of uninstalling.
It was great before they took away everything
by S414 on 2021/09/01 18:46
The reshaper and paint tool used to be free until James Charles used it in a YouTube video and then they updated to app so everyone that was using it before can’t use it anymore cause you need to pay a subscription to use it.

by bubbaj435642424 on 2021/09/01 05:25
I used this app to edit any of my photos and I’ve been a customer using this for years. Up until today where they decided to charge for the things I loved most about the app. Not using this app until they fix it. So upset to see this. Not fair for the people who have been using this!!
Rug Pull Mistake
by mrWINNER1234 on 2021/09/01 01:02
Facetune has always been a great app but to update the pay model making it impossible to use is ridiculous. You think I’m gonna pay 60 dollars for an app??? Really???? I hope this decision results in your user base dropping this app. Just waiting a competitor to have open season on the people that are dropping this app!
not worth it
by coffee anonymous on 2021/08/31 15:35
honestly really scummy to suddenly start charging for the only reason anyone downloads this app. loved this app for the past few years, but now you need a subscription to do anything.
Why?
by The_Ninja_ on 2021/08/31 05:14
I was able to use the retouch and paint features free before the app was updated. Why be selfish and make people pay for that? Wasn’t that what the first Facetune app was for? For the paying customers? Please remove that option I would like to be able to use this app without paying for those features.
Subscription killed the app…
by Chris Sliger on 2021/08/30 15:29
While I understand the idea that the developers apparently need motivation for further updates, it used to be something they took pride in for having built a quality product and then stayed with it or sold it for a crazy amount of money. Before switching to a subscription basis they may want to consider how to value their products. Apple Music is $15 for a family of up to 6 with hundreds of thousands of songs and videos. Apple Arcade is $6 with hundreds of hours of games for everyone in your family to share. Take that concept and look at your photo captive app. It’s far overpriced and the “Optics” of it screams greed. It’s a blunt review but by the masses you’re hoping to be a multi-millionaire on one photo app too fast. Core features that were available before stripped down to try and force a subscription is tyrannical and Apple should eliminate the setup altogether unless it’s something that is completely new and different each month like magazines or a streaming service.
used to love it
by someone who used to be a fan on 2021/08/28 14:53
I used to use this app for almost every picture if there was something in the back i didn’t like i could move it now i have to pay for that, my friend doesn’t but is somehow still able too now it’s just a hassle n not worth it
If I could give 0 stars I would
by SugarPlumPoptart on 2021/08/28 14:46
I selected the $2.99 subscription option as I only needed it to touch up one photo and it automatically changed it to the $35.99 option.
“Free” but not
by Senior10 on 2021/08/28 01:07
So you can download the app for free, but have to have a subscription to use anything. I hate apps that say “free” and have “in-app purchases” that are required in order to use the app. When I think in-app purchases I think of extras or help the person progress fast or whatever. Apple really should say “subscription required” for these types of apps rather than “in-app purchases” to differentiate between the two experiences.
OMG
by Learj25 on 2021/08/27 20:50
Total scam. What used to be free now requires a membership. There are many other apps that are actually free. If you only use it every now then get one that doesn’t false advertise.

by CoolArrow293 on 2021/08/26 18:22

Scam
by Ed-Ber on 2021/08/26 15:30
Facetune original was a good app that I paid for. They say it’s been updated to the new free version which now requires a monthly subscription, what?? For an app you use maybe once a year? Deleted!! Goodbye Facetune 2..
Outsmarted you factune 2
by syjnbxf m on 2021/08/26 11:29
Ok… I guess if you take a screenshot of your modified photo and you go to gallery, facetune blocks your photo. Hey Facetune. What are you gonna do about me swiping up to see my recent apps and screenshooting it from there. After that just zoom in and boom…ive got a free screenshot. Youve failed to block my photo. Whoops.
How do I cancel

Greedy Developers: DO NOT USE
by robert1253 on 2021/08/24 19:22
This app uses sneaky techniques of trying to get you to pay for the app. They allow you to edit the features so that you spend time to make it look the way you want, but as soon as you try to save it, it prompts you to pay 8 dollars a month. Monetizing an app is totally understandable but by not making it clear to a user upfront and charging for the most basic features such as retouch makes me think these developers are just trying to take your money. Do not download unless you are willing to pay 8 bucks a month
You can’t even save the pictures without premium
by Kinsley Neal ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ on 2021/08/23 22:08
Paid for the app to edit the pictures then have to pay again to save the pictures I edited?
Not Free, Even 1%
by Kait_nofilter on 2021/08/23 17:33
No part of this is free. You have to choose a payment option before you can even upload a photo. 1/10, do not recommend.
Not “Free App”/Demo app
by marknti on 2021/08/22 12:53

Pay to Retouch now?
by ferrjdjs on 2021/08/21 17:03
After retouching two previous photos, I just tried doing a third and you now have to pay for it. Ridiculous! Deleted this app off of my phone and won’t be using it until this is fixed. Instead of taking away features, try adding new ones that can enhance user experience and hide those behind a paywall.
I thought this was free!!
by ASAP Loso on 2021/08/20 22:30
Decent app but now they want to charge for it, will be deleting it ASAP! There are other apps that do the same things and that are 100% free.
Buyer beware
by ashmoe2004 on 2021/08/20 13:28
I was given the option to make a one time payment of $69.99 for unlimited use. I paid it because I hate subscriptions. Now on top of that charge I have been charged a $38 subscription fee. I am requesting a refund, because that is ridiculous.
New fees
by Catch211 on 2021/08/19 15:05
They have suddenly become greedy and are charging for previously free features. Do your research. There are other apps you can use.
The removal tool is crap!
by HDRider56 on 2021/08/17 23:41
The removal option does not work! It’ll “mostly” remove the image BUT you’re left with a blurry mess where the image used to be.
Not free must pay after seven days
by Bigg Chubb on 2021/08/17 17:40
For seven days you get limited access and then you will be charged. Guess they’re hoping I will forget when seven days are. I am calling Clickbait because it says it is free. Free trial does not mean free. Free means free.😉 Developer response says everything will be free. Must be a language barrier. You must sign up for a free trial like I said. My other free apps you download them and you play them. Because they are free. Keyword being free. Developer I will give you time to research your English. But first Google translate because it will not help you.

by lalalalhonesty on 2021/08/15 06:32
If I could write this is zero stars I would they literally took away the reshaping feature that used to be free and made it for money because you greedy stupid idiots and I hate you because you’re so stupid and you always make me pay too much
My “go-to” for editing!
by baknevkkd on 2021/08/14 21:34
I've been using this app for years now and don't plan on switching up! Love it!
locking and unlocking features is SUPER ANNOYING
by __SarahM on 2021/08/13 23:35
i swear facetune just cannot choose whether they wanna give us certain things for free or not. one minute the reshape tool and paint tool is free to use, next minute it’s locked and you gotta pay for it, next minute it unlocked again, then locked back again. it’s very ANNOYING. just make up your mind, it’s either you give it to us for free or not. at this point i will delete the app for good. y’all can’t be so selfish. you can barely do anything good for free already, they’re literally taking everything good away from the app unless you pay for it. it’s an actual shame, unless facetune unlocks the features again, i will soon be deleting. if you’re looking for an alternative, picsart has in app features, but their reshape tool as well as paint tool is free! and there isn’t any back and forth locking and unlocking. i don't recommend this app unless you have loads of money to waste!
Disappointed
by createnickname2.0 on 2021/08/13 05:40
I never write reviews but these updates are really ridiculous. What's the point of having free editing options just to later charge for them? It makes even less sense considering there already is an original facetune that costs money and this is supposed to be a free alternative; on top of this the developers don't seem to care about the multiple reviews that are complaining about the same thing. I would give this 0 stars if I could.
😕

It seems like you have to pay for it lol.. yea no
CHANGE YHE BACKDROP
by lizzy46girl on 2021/08/12 05:19
PLEASE change the backdrop feature to how it used to be , it’s impossible to correct anything after the backdrop is put in place because it TAKES SO LONG to fix the background if you’re trying to completely erase anything . My finger hurts from trying to erase like that. It was never like that before !! I hate it so much, please fix it, gonna be deleting the app otherwise.
I have had this app for a long time
by sallyrena on 2018/05/20 01:29
I have loved this but all of a sudden it dose not work . I have asked for help they just give me a lot of junk that only a lawyer could read When it has worked I really loved it but right now I so upset because I can’t get it to work . It’s a google app and they want me to buy an upgrade. When it works it’s a 4 Star now it’s a one star! This app contact me to clarify what was going on. The error was mine not theirs. I still don’t fully understand as I use the app for a very long time. But it appears that I had not paid for that app so I appreciated them contacting me and clarifying what was going on. I would give this app a very strong 5 stars and do appreciate contact with them with clear and easy to understand information about what had been going on
Just no.

Selfish app creators. How do you have a “free” option with limited stuff “which Is decent limited stuff” but only allow us to “preview” our edits??? Then when we go to save the photo we edited with your “so called free” limited edition or whatever you would call it, it does NOT allow you to save a picture you edited using their “free” option. It tries to make you pay for it. So what I use to do was screenshot the photo I edited with the FREE option. But since the app creators are selfish they seriously put a block on screenshots 😂😑 don’t ask me how the hell they did that but that obviously doesn’t stop us 🤷🏻‍♀️ they forget how advanced & updated IPhones are now a days. A screenshot block didn’t block me from still claiming my “so called free edits” ya know the one they offer to you for FREE but then try to get you once you’re done editing your hphoto😂😂 I’m just making this review to let people know that this app isn’t all that. And how it has false advertising & how the creator really thought they would be able to not allow me to keep the photo I just edited 😂😂 there’s other ways of saving what’s on your screen other then a screen shot. “It was worth a shot though” 😉 but seriously people the App Store has way better and FREE editing apps that have the same exact options as this one & more. You cam, inshot, filterra-(my fave one ) Also love image effect edit lab. 🤓😏😏😏😋
Too many subscriptions
by **1024** on 2020/11/18 22:13
I have had this app for a very long time. It was my go-to app for touching up photos, changing filters, etc. but recently they updated the app and you are now forced to be a subscriber (meaning you have to pay) for certain options that originally, for a very long time, were free. I supposed that the creators of the app started catching on to the fact that some people were screenshotting their edited photos so as to not have to pay the ridiculous subscription fee (I don’t blame them for trying to screen shot anything. It’s ridiculous that you have to pay an outrageous price for something that was once free) and now you can’t even do that. If you try to screenshot it, a message pops up saying something along the lines of “nice try!” Or “it was worth a shot!” And telling you that you have to subscribe and pay a fee for that certain feature. Like I said before, I was a long time user of this app, I had it even before they switched it to “Facetune2”. But now with all these restrictions and fees, I have deleted the app and will no longer use it again unless they remove these recent restrictions and “features”. I hope this was helpful for anyone who plans on using it. It’s not a bad app if you’re willing to pay the outrageous amount they ask for small features.
Destroyed photo + need email all of a sudden for support?
by Michael Krueger Voorhees on 2021/04/27 12:04
I went back to the app after editing a photo. I was maybe exited out of the app for 20 minutes and when I entered again and went to edit the same photo I thought it obviously saved. My changes to the photo had been permanently altered, and I had not completely exited out of the app or refreshed it. Instead of the regular photo it was supposed to save, it saved a weird screenshot including some of the editing tools inside the photo. I had the blue curve marks permanently around my face from when I was previously editing my same photo. I also had the rest of the options for tools and editing options taking up most of the top and bottom of the photo. My face was the only part of the photo that was visible and the original photo included my whole entire body. I tried contacting support but it told me that I needed to two add an email to my account. From the beginning I have logged in with my gmail account email and password to use the app, because of this requested email issue I have searched the settings and found there is no option to add an email; therefore I cannot contact support about this issue. I am currently paying for the monthly membership and to experience these issues is inconvenient. Hopefully someone will reach out to me about this issue. Thank you.
Retouch and Paint features
by vicobregond on 2020/11/08 21:08
I read a review prior to writing this one that discussed the same issues I’m having. I honestly think the developers of facetune are talented and have created an amazing app, however I don’t think its fair to suddenly update the app and start charging for two features that have allowed them to gain so many downloads: the retouch and paint option. I use this for work, for myself, and for friends who need help fixing photos. Frankly, I pay too many subscriptions to be able to afford another one just for these two options. I think that they can increase their revenue for the app by adding more features such as hair color or clothing (available through subscription) rather than charging for the ones that were once promises to be free. Please open these features up to free users again, those who can afford to continuously pay a subscription will pay for the other, new, and much cooler features you guys have been adding! App is great in use, no crashes, it was just this one thing. P.S. it seems that the hype over facetuning that has been introduced by influencers has made the creators believe that they should suddenly start charging more for what they call a “selfie editing app”.
Can do pretty much nothing for free.
by Lexi partner on 2021/02/22 14:38
It is pretty terrible. The app works and all but in order to do anything you have to buy a membership like OMG WHAT!?! I tried to edit one photo but every time I tried to save the photo it it pulled up the join membership page. This app said u could use it and it would be for free but you really can’t. I just wanted to play around with some photos but I can’t. I tried to take screenshots of the photos but because of lines they added around your face I can’t have a good looking photo. Honestly the app is dumb. I would understand having to some money for things you want to use but not have a membership I was going to use this app what twice every three months? But now I am deleting the app. It is useless to me. At least if u r going to have the membership thing show what u have to have a membership to use. Also what about the people that already bought everything? Now they can’t use it unless they also buy the membership. There are plenty of free app editors that I can use instead. I would try out the original Face-tune but it already costs money and I have no clue wether I need a membership there too. This app was a waste of my time. I had to put it at least a one star but honestly this is a zero star from me.
I’m so disappointed.
by amizingal11 on 2020/10/30 13:50
I NEVER write reviews but I’m so disappointed about the updated Facetune 2. This app was one of the best photo editing apps that I have ever seen. I usually use Adobe Photoshop (with my school acc) to edit my photography. However, the app for Adobe Photoshop is really confusing to me. Facetune 2 offered a free app that provided an easy-to-use Photoshop application to fix everyday pictures and make them look high quality. Then, they got greedy and decided to “make some things cost money” in order to provide new tools. The new tools are not relevant and nearly as usable as the ones that used to be free. Listen, the free version of Facetune 2 always had in-app purchases, which is totally understandable; Until they made the most crucial tools cost money. For example, the paint tool is a great way to brighten backgrounds subtly and enhance vibrant colors in pictures. It gave you free range to edit your hair color, eye color, shirt color, sky color, car color, etc. Then they decided to make it offered to members only. They did this with all the popular/needed tools and now the app is useless. I’ve switched back to Photoshop and FaceApp (which is free). I’m just so disappointed with the updates, maybe if they ever go back I’ll re-download. Until then it’s 0 stars from me.
I use to love this app
by m89aria on 2018/11/13 04:37
I started with the original, later paid for the second one and was quite happy with it even though periodically I had to relearn a feature because of an update or add on. Slowly the add ons became useless for me and the features I paid one time for weretaken away and replaced by an outrageous subscription to add back the useful features that took me some time to perfect along with all these newer items that were sub par and looked fake anyway. The best features were either taken away and now being charged again at a higher monthly rate or they were moved, modified or made less effective/ quality/ professional/believable/etc or buried in so many other layers of stuff that I quit using it. I try every now and then to see if they offer an alternative (closer to the facetune2 from a year ago at a reasonable price I would pay for using and be happy with). But its still leaning towards the canned presets and filters that so many others do. They used to-be so unique and semi-expert modifications could be made with precision that the professional apps could do with a lot less complicated processes. But I think they lost a lot of fans. Oh well maybe they will come out with a third one.
not as good as before
by imposter kinda sus on 2020/10/23 20:51
I used to really, really like using this app for its free options. The retouch options were (and still are) mostly available, as were the reshape, and the paint option was probably my favorite, because there was so much you could do with it, from changing lighting on the face, fixing skin discoloration, or touching up or adding makeup. It was a game changer, and I couldn’t find another app that matched it in that regard. I really relied on the retouch and paint features, the latter especially, and were the main reason I used and recommended the app to others. Now that it’s added new features and rendered some of those previously mentioned features - namely the paint option - only available through subscription, I’m enjoying it a lot less and looking into using other apps. I’m sure that the newer features would be useful to some people, but I kind of wish that I could have a choice to opt out of them + just retain use of the previous gestures without purchase. Idk. My rating went down a star because of these new added “perks” that are, in my opinion, a lot less useful.
It’s.. not really free
by Dixina_Pup on 2019/02/18 05:29
Okay, I downloaded this app for fun. But I also thought it would be fun to just mess around with photos and make photos of myself... well... BETTER... So if you are reading this review before downloading this, the app itself might be free but to get all the good stuff you have to pay. Okay, MOST of the stuff you have to pay for! I would NOT recommend this for someone who is not willing to pay money (like me) and I know, you are probably telling me that “not everything is going to be free” and I know! I’m just saying most of the stuff you have to pay for which leads to some people deleting it (like me). Also, I have tried some of the stuff you have to pay money for for free, and some of the stuff isn’t even good! It looks totally weird and photoshopped and looks unprofessional. Although some of the stuff works wonders and is really good. But I’m not sure if you are getting what you are paying for. Your paying for good quality! Not bad quality! So these are things I am saying. Someone might have totally different thoughts on this game. But I will give this a two star. I deleted this but I am willing to try it again if things gets fixed. ⭐️⭐️
Veiled promises and unrequited love
by ClassicalCajun on 2021/09/11 16:13
I used to love you, but you’ve backed out on the very promises our vows we’re based upon 💔 I don’t want make this about money. It’s really about the kids. We only started out wanting two, but those two became so greedy that we had to take on second jobs to support them, and now we have no time left in our relationship for the love that started us. Now I don’t know if I even love our kids anymore… So the fun is over when I have to pay for what use to be a stellar, free app. Now the basic intuitive features of face “smoothing” and lighting and background editing are just trials, and if I still have to pay a monthly or annual fee for a subscription of mediocre cheap-looking effects. I keep checking back to see if these features have improved with upgrades/fixes and if there are improvements to the free setting. Not to date. I will continue reading pro-reviews to see if the subscription of $70 for this app outshines Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions and learning curves.
The makeup features and Subscriptions
by Emmy loves kittnes on 2020/11/28 03:27
FaceTune, I used the app to practice makeup, not to pay to draw makeup on a character/human. The tools also won’t help or won’t attach to the right place when it’s clear and solid so it should. You also have way to many payed items to the point where you can literally just make your character smile and have glowing hair and some people really wanna practice makeup, now FaceTune 1 may have the feature but I am looking forward for FaceTune 2. I hate how almost everything you have to pay for. No one will use your app because how everything you have to pay. I’m 100% sure it had way better reviews when the new features of the subscription’s or blah blah blah wasn’t out. I still really hate how I can’t even practice makeup on a human!? You really think I will buy subscription’s no way! I don’t care if it’s 3 dollars I’m still mad because some people want it’s free because they don’t have the money! Sorry if the review didn’t make since or if it was mean but no one is gonna use your app if you have your subscriptions like this any longer so I recommend you change the app. ~Thank you for reading
it’s ok
by hdkdekxix on 2021/02/22 09:39
I used to really like this app for some basic photo editing but they’ve added two features (paint and retouch) that were previously free to the subscription package. There are still features that I like but taking away these two features that were already free (esp since I really liked and used the paint feature to add more vibrancy to photos) was a bit of a turn off so I’m gonna look for a new editing app since I feel that the few free features that are left can be found others that have more to offer. Like I get it they need to make money but to be honest I only use the app for very basic photo editing so to me it’s not worth buying a subscription to. I honestly don’t really recommend this app unless you’re planning to buy the subscription. If you are they do have some cool features but if you’re not the only things you can do on here is put filters on your pics and smooth/conceal your skin. and like crop photos and mess around with photo exposure but you can already do that on your phone so yeah not rlly worth the storage space.
Revision: 40 dollar app robbery
by hellachels on 2019/01/18 22:23
Soooo I did what I said I’d do in my previous review. I just kept it since I have to have it for work & idk what the last update did but when you go to refine the size of something or completely fuzzes it out. You also messed with patching, say when needing to add a patch of hair somewhere else it is completely different from what it use to be it picks up the underneath of the part you are trying to cover and makes it look crazy. When patching it is also extremely frustrating to rotate an image or turn your selection because it changes the grain of the patch instead of what you are selecting. Again for your pompous 40 dollars your development delay is beyond lazy. I canceled this app four days ago after I noticed you were going to charge me 40 dollars for your stupid app. Not ever in my life would I pay that for an APP- once a year or not! You auto default people to that and even when they cancel it so it doesn’t go through you STILL PROCESS IT. Your app doesn’t even let you selectively touch up like your free one. You’re basically a super expensive Pixlr. Reversing the charge.
All the good features you now have to pay for
by fFzgFFYzzgGhZhx on 2020/09/15 12:22
I’ve been a long time user of this app like probably over three years and recently the tools i used the most and LOVED you now have to pay for. The reason why I had Facetune 2 instead of normal facetune is because I didn’t want to pay money for an editing app like this. Limiting the features unless you pay literally defeats the purpose of the whole “factune 2”cheaper app idea. if you’re willing to spend (wayyy too) money on an editing app like this, just get normal Factune. I’m deleting this app now because the only features it provides are features you can get on a million other apps. It’d be a different story if i didn’t have all the features before and had to pay for the good features from the start (i would have deleted the app right away if i had to pay for the good stuff anyway) but they were mostly free and then taken away which why I’m upset. It changed for no reason besides getting an extra buck. I’d like to hear a response for the purpose of having two apps that do the same thing for more money.
Features that were once free now need subscription
by charlsjr on 2020/11/20 19:25
Updating an app only to make it more expensive is completely disappointing. The two most used features: Paint and Reshape were originally free with Facetune 2, which was what made the app so special, but now they require a subscription. This app was originally a really exciting idea that allowed for amazing features from Facetune to be accessed for free. It was very efficient and although not all the features were free, the ones that were still free offered amazing tools for photo editing. Recently, the app created an update that, although it released new features, changed the settings for some of the best and most used features on the app and they now require the VIP subscription. The Paint and Reshape tools being free are what made this app unique and better than other apps. This kind of action completely cheats the consumers of this app and ruins the once great reputation that Facetune 2 once had. For the Facetune 2 developers: Please reconsider changing the Paint and Reshape features back and available for all users. Thank you.
facetune 1 is way better
by Kyla~Marie on 2019/12/16 16:55
I have had facetune ever since james Charles recommended it and i truly loved it. It was only like $5 and it came with everything i needed. Facetune 2 ruins it for me. You have to pay $6 a month or $70 for a one time payment! Now all of a sudden the original facetune isn't letting me update it because of changes that were made or something. I honestly wish facetune 2 was similar to the original facetune. Your not even getting that much out of facetune 2, there are several apps i can do the same thing for free. I would much rather have facetune 2 be like the original facetune, where you pay for the app and everything is included. For now i will be sticking to the original facetune. This one is super overpriced which in my opinion makes it worse. You guys should've have jumped into monthly and yearly payments and continued to have us pay for the app outright. It's going downhill :( . I was super happy at first seeing it was free and thinking i would only have to pay like $5 in the app but wow i was wrong.
Bait and Switch...
by OneWhisper44 on 2020/10/16 17:36
They used to have free features, still do, BUT now a lot of what used to be FREE for the 2 years I’ve been using it, they changed to now have you buy their subscription or pay the outrageous one time price. It’s fine if you want to have paid features, but they shouldn’t change from being free to having to pay for them all of a sudden. It’s messed up. You use it for 2 years, get used to the things you like, learn how to use them, and then all of a sudden 2 years later you have to pay for what you used to get free. I understand having to pay for certain features, but if other features were free for so long, why now should I pay for them??? Honestly, at first I was like, well I’ll just pay. But then I looked at the prices. Subscription for this app is crazy...the one time fee is even more ridiculous. The features are no where near worth that. There’s apps that do what this does and more and do them better for that price. Unfortunately Facetune has gained such popularity they think it’s okay to do this. It’s not.
So...
by Hard Writer on 2019/01/02 04:06
Overall, it's fine. There's nothing wrong with the effects if they're used correctly. My biggest problem comes from the subscription fees. I use mobile photoshop constantly with peoples faces and it feels almost insulting to see that the only things available for non-payers to use are the things that are already available in photoshop, while the only things that bring anything remotely new to the table requires paying for a fee that is either: completely insane for a mobile app or one that seems small, but when you eventually forget it exists it piles up and slowly drains your bank account. At least the first Facetune one was a one-and-done $3.99 deal. I'll admit, some tools are very well done and are much easier to use for people with less experience in the whole "face editing field". But those things fall short when you realize you have to sell your soul for these minor conveniences. I'm willing to put in a little extra effort in order to get just as desirable results.
I watched this happen, so not saying you should do it...
by Chelsey Annaliese-marieee on 2021/01/13 05:22
So like many apps do, they have VIP membership subscriptions that enable you to unlock certain features. Well a friend of mine is a long time user of the app, but whenever she wanted to use a specific feature that could only be used in the VIP membership, she would just screenshot it. I’m not snitching on her or anything really, but I found this kinda funny. I guess there is a new update on that app that when someone tries to screenshot the photo edited with features without paying for the membership it now will say “It was worth a shot”—it was funny seeing her reaction! But what I thought was even funnier is that when that happened, it didn’t stop her for any longer than 3 seconds. All she had to do was screenrecord her screen for 5 seconds then once it was in her album, she screenshot it from the video & got her picture 😂😂 SO I say that all to say... you all miiiiight want to update your system a little bit to make more of a profit— I guess Gen Z is rather fast 😂🤷🏾‍♀️ Hope this helps!
Used to be one of my favorite apps
by haz the lion on 2020/07/23 20:07
Before this new development, I would have given this app a 5 star rating. It was my favorite app to use to edit pictures of people. It was great and you could really develop a knack for it if you practiced as much as I did. But then today, I went on there to edit a picture and I noticed that two VERY basic editing tools are now payed function only. They had always been free to use and you could pay for other things like backdrop and glitter and auto-fixes. Facetune 2 took away reshaping AND paint. Paint is very useful for making things more colorful or even changing the color of things and color correcting things you are editing out,, as well as many other uses. These two functions were the main ones I used along with smoothing and now facetune has taken them away for a stupid fee. I would go to facetune 1, but even that requires a payment to use. I will not be using facetune anymore and I do not recommend other people do unless they want to pay for the most basic editing tools.
Way too pricy
by Misa Misaki on 2018/05/24 08:51
I’m really disappointed that facetune decided to go with a subscription model. I probably wouldn’t even mind it too much if it wasn’t this expensive! I’m so tempted to buy this app but honestly every time I just have to remind myself it’s not worth it. At the price of $70 I might as well get photoshop on my computer. And what bothers me the most was that at one point the app was available for one time payment of $30 and when I checked back later they had bumped it up to $70 ?? I was so SHOOK that they bumped the price up so much and it discouraged me from buying this app. A subscription model for an app like this in my opinion isn’t worth it. And the only perk old face tune users get is a one month free trial! No discount on the full version, nothing. 🙏🏼 If only I still had the opportunity to purchase this app for $30 (NOT YEARLY) I’d gladly throw my money at facetune but I don’t and I’m not spending $70 so I guess :S I’ll just continue to be upset over it and hopefully some day another app that’s just as good will come out that’s reasonable priced.
Must have for any social media pics
by Mimi090810 on 2017/12/06 22:35
I absolutely LOVE this app. And paying the $4.99 a month is so worth it for all the extras you get. I have an Instagram account that I use for makeup and I hope to be an influencer at some point. This app has helped take my photos to the next level. You don’t have to change your face and make yourself look like someone you’re not, I’m not into that at all. But you can cover a blemish, fix your liner if it’s gotten smudged or faded, fix the tones of the pic (I use this a lot cause my iPhone can tend to wash me out) add lighting to the exact areas you want it in, smooth out pores, sharpen details and textures, and so so so much more. I could not be happier with this app and will be using it on every pic I upload. Won’t be looking for a better app causethis one just does it all :)
One of my go to apps for retouching
by Macuzer on 2017/09/24 13:17
This app is pretty amazing. It makes it incredibly easy to apply professional level effects to your photos. The most used for me are the "Relight" and "Eyes" tools. Unbelievable that such a powerful editing tool is in my pocket! I'm not a fan of SaaS, so I paid the one time price. Pretty expensive, but a bargain when compared to the cost of apps used by pros to accomplish these same types of effects. Just hoping it's continuously updated and I don't have to shell out again because Facetune 3 comes out. TL;DR Amazing app. Great features. Expensive. But still a bargain. Great job to everyone involved in creating this tool. You make me look like a rockstar when I take a picture, correct/enhance it in post and share it. My subjects are always amazed at how good their photo looks.
Subscription killed the app…
by Chris Sliger on 2021/08/30 15:29
While I understand the idea that the developers apparently need motivation for further updates, it used to be something they took pride in for having built a quality product and then stayed with it or sold it for a crazy amount of money. Before switching to a subscription basis they may want to consider how to value their products. Apple Music is $15 for a family of up to 6 with hundreds of thousands of songs and videos. Apple Arcade is $6 with hundreds of hours of games for everyone in your family to share. Take that concept and look at your photo captive app. It’s far overpriced and the “Optics” of it screams greed. It’s a blunt review but by the masses you’re hoping to be a multi-millionaire on one photo app too fast. Core features that were available before stripped down to try and force a subscription is tyrannical and Apple should eliminate the setup altogether unless it’s something that is completely new and different each month like magazines or a streaming service.
Pricey but Worth It!
by RenaeGreenman on 2018/04/05 00:42
This app is by far the BEST photo editing app I have ever used. You can literally do ANYTHING to your selfies, to achieve whatever exact desired effect you wish. This app gets all the little nuances completely right! Even my less flattering selfies come out ravishing after I’ve used FaceTune for enhancements. It is so unbelievably versatile and the tools are comprehensive for whatever you might need. They really thought of everything! I wish this had existed years ago! I never post a selfie or portrait to social media without running it through FaceTune FIRST. It’s become a necessity on my iPhone and my go-to app for all things selfie related! The price is steep but worth it for what you get and how often you’ll find yourself using it. Five enthusiastic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Not worth the financial investment
by 90Bats on 2021/07/26 12:45
I do like the app, especially for things like removing acne from an otherwise good picture… or people. However my skin has cleared and I’m in therapy to remove myself from people I don’t want in photos. The point is that I no longer need the app so I canceled my subscription and deleted the app a couple months ago. I thought my child had put it back on my phone when I saw the charge for $7.99 on my card.. but when I looked it appears that they’ve still been taking my money. I needed a little money for gas and the second I loaded my card, Facetune2 charged me $15 immediately. Again, I no longer use or subscribe to the app. Why are you charging me let alone taking double the monthly amount? I did try to dispute it so I guess we’ll see how that goes. Would I have recommended the app before this? 100% yes. Now? Probably not. Shady.
Amazed........but
by Jesse lee16 on 2018/04/19 05:21
This app is amazing and I can see what people would pay for (ok not really the 70$ for lifetime especially since the first one was only like 4$) but any way my only question is why are basic editing tools such as saturation, highlights, and shadow for vip only??? I mean literally every single editing app free and paid has these things. Even the editor in your photos. This doesn’t really make since to me and it is annoying going back and forth through other apps to have to use these tools. I understand you want to make money but tools like those should just be a given that they are free. One last thing. I wouldn’t say this is app is worth seventy dollars for life time or doing a continuous subscription. A One time purchase of like 7-10$ is probably more of the range this app is in. Great app but yeah.
Nice app! But has lots of bugs.
by Grettacia on 2017/11/04 04:16
I use this app almost EVERYDAY, I find it essential to edit my professional photograph. Due to the fact that I use it so often I’ve noticed some bugs and defects, for example, when I want to crop a picture, after I do it, and want to use another feature, the app freezes for a moment, this is very annoying. Something similar happens when I want to use the darkroom feature. Also, when I’m using the “paint” feature, the options for the colors are right side of the picture, so when I want to color the background, it becomes difficult. Also, it crashes sometimes and I loose all my progress. Overall, this app is great, it has so much potential, I definitely recommend it, but it would make me 100% if y’all were to fix these issues, Thank you so much.
Facetune is amazing
by CHEEEECH on 2019/02/06 18:16
The amount of control over individual facial features is amazing. I give it 5 stars. It is a must for retouches. I was hesitant because of the price. I bit the bullet and bought the full app. I think it was during a sale. So glad I did. Hope they keep updating this app and don’t create a facetune 3 that I will have to pay for it again. Some features that I would like to see are: adjust hairline, add facial hair and hairstyles/colors, add teeth to a smile like “FaceApp”. Add a background feature can definitely be improved. So could some of the eye color and eye reflection features. Appreciate the new neon lightning feature. Please continue to make this app better. Would like to lower receding hairlines ASAP. Important for my retouching of older men. Thank you developers !
Used to be amazing ... not so much now
by CynxRN on 2021/05/05 16:57
This has been my go to app for all my pics I need to edit quickly and simply. Up until recent... there is such a lag when I select any editing options. Especially if I’m just using the single tap to see and compare the original image to the one that I’m working on with. It used to toggle quickly between the two with just a tap which saved me a ton of time. This lag time is when working on the pic.... you could actually count to 3 while waiting for the selection to make the change. This app also won’t let you “patch” completely. It’s always transparent but I’m trying to get rid of an unwanted object in the photo, I literally can’t because you can still see the object through the transparent patched area. Lastly and very importantly... please fix this thing that makes it so I can’t edit any the bottom portion of my photo .... because the edited tools are in the way... the tools can’t be moved or minimized so in order for me to edit my photo at the bottom I have to turn my photo upside down just to reach the bottom part. Please fix these things! I used to LOVE this app but as of late I’ve been looking for another one that doesn’t have all these time consuming and frustrating issues. I should also add that I’ve been a paid member for several years.
Afraid to do Free Trial Due to Poor Reviews
by Facebook Fan2 on 2020/02/18 22:16
After reading all these horror reviews of people actually being charged even after they cancel the free subscription within the appropriate time, I’m a so hesitant to even try it. I read the reviews from the Most Recent not the Most Helpful. The reviews are horrible. Most not about the app itself but when it comes to being charged. If you don’t make it easy to cancel and if people are being billed when they’re not suppose to be and they are letting you know here but all you can give is a generic what seems automated response, then I would beware. Too many people are complaining about the same or similar things. You lost me before me even giving it a try. And I wanted to try. Trust me. But I don’t want to try at the expense of you tampering with my dollars and charging me. Then I have to deal with the frustration of “trying” to get my monies refunded? Maybe when I see better reviews, I’ll reconsider. Until then, I will pass.
BEWARE!! -1 start
by walkerrph on 2020/05/19 16:06
Tried the free trial & realized with my arthritis It was not a good choice for me. I thought I had unsubscribed & had deleted the app but then a charge showed up on my credit card. Okay. If I was remiss there were 2 choices for 1 mo or 1 year...I had not chose either and get billed for $38+ rather than a $5.95 mo? I have tried to work with Apple who advised me to contact the company which has no contact info. NO WAY would I recommend a company that appears to operate in such a nefarious way. **** I love companies who support their product..this may have been my issue but as mentioned above my hand immobility made it problematic to use..hence I stopped the trial after 2 days but was charged for a year. I was refunded my charge and thank you! Great job!!
Definitely an advance!
by Stevearcher on 2018/03/02 15:56
Updated Review: Yes, it's a subscription app. But the developers are constantly improving it and adding WOW! features. Their latest trick are automated backdrops that, in two taps, permit backgrounds to be changed with amazing accuracy. Facetune 2 is the real thing, an app that can still do magic! (And to dispel any doubters, I'm just a more-than-satisfied user with no connection to the publishers.) Like others commenting, I was disappointed to see version 2 of this app go to a subscription model. But a rating should be primarily on merit and only secondarily on cost. And Facetune 2 is a substantive improvement over the original Facetune. Many more features, of which some are quite unique, including some remarkably automated edits!
Longtime User but this is App Extortion!
by bmal4 on 2019/11/10 16:06
I have been using Facetune for YEARS, and a while back paid for a full feature upgrade for a reasonable sum (it was ages ago so I’m thinking between $15-30?) This was more than I’d paid for any other app, but felt it was worth it as it really did elevate photos from my iPhone 6. I didn’t need the app as much when I upgraded to an iPhoneX with a better camera, but Facetune was still my go-to app for specialized editing. I’ve had to “restore purchases” more than once because the app ‘forgets’ I’ve paid for the upgrade. Today I went in and even after restoring purchases, I can’t access features that I’ve had for YEARS without paying monthly fees. Auto-retouching and healing are GONE and I’m being forced to pay for them monthly. That is like app extortion, ridiculous!! I’m done here. Will just use photoshop from now on. Bummer Facetune, I really enjoyed your app.
Great! But...
by Mewtwo3773 on 2018/05/09 04:26
I Love facetune 2 it’s definitely an upgrade from the first one but I still have a few issues. Firstly in the tones/ paint region of the first one you can choose any color from a color palette and make whatever color you want, however in the second one that option is gone and you have to pick from options that they already have which really limits how far you can go with the tones. Secondly in the tones and paints of Facetune 2 the colors on the side are too big and if I want to color over something on the right I am not able to unless I start from the left and work my way to the right and then erase afterwards which is kind of a hassle if I am just trying to change a simple tone. Overall the app is great but would love to see an update with these fixes!
This app is encouraging fake beauty and the Devs are selfish
by WiselyChoco on 2020/12/21 12:45
This app is not good for kids, teens, adults, or anyone. It encourages people to hide their real beauty and mask it with lies. I only downloaded this app because I needed to write this review to warn any young people to not use this app as way to make you look pretty on pictures for your social medias. This app was created for people who aren’t confident in how they look, but they should be. ALSO this was created to make money off of people who cared enough to change how they actually look. Please do not waste money on this app because your giving the Devs what they want. *IMPORTANT INFO READ NOW* If you are still don’t believe me, you can scroll down to the information section of this app and click on “In-App Purchases” and you’ll be able to see all the in-app purchases inside the app, which should help you understand that this a horrible app created to grab your money to fake your appearance.
Not every effect is free
by 11LCat26 on 2018/11/23 18:14
Face tune works well, better than most I have tried. It’s more intuitive and I like that. It has more useful options but many of the best of them require an upgrade. If you try the upgrade options out while editing a photo, you lose the ability to keep the free options you have tried once you are done, and you will have to redo those effects. I would recommend saving all the free options, then and only then trying out the upgrade options. That way you don’t have to start over. In addition, some of the free options end up looking ridiculous on some faces/photos but normal on others, depending on the person’s original expression and their natural facial attributes.
Ridiculous price for something that was previously free.
by mochi612 on 2020/08/11 19:15
I got this app a couple years back and I really enjoyed and loved using it. It was the only app that allowed me to use reshape but kept its original resolution and even location of where I took the photos when saved back to my camera roll. I never bothered to update because the app had no real problems or errors with it. However, UNFORTUNATELY, a couple hours ago I was having trouble saving some pictures to my camera roll, so I decided to update it to see if that’d fix the issue. To my dismay, I came back onto the app to find out that the ONLY tool I used on this ONLY editing app that I use is now $70 AND NO LONGER FREE. That is a RIDICULOUS price to pay for something that was free before and I feel robbed of my experience with this app. It was my favorite editing app and the only one that I used, but now I can’t use it at all. Make it free again and it’ll be 5 stars again.
DOWNLOADED APP 1st, READ REVIEWS 2nd, DELETED APP 3rd
by MarcysMansion on 2020/07/25 22:35
Well I learned from that. Next time I will read the recent reviews before I download any app from here on out. What’s crazy is I normally read reviews beforehand instead of who has the most users and the # of ⭐️ next to it. After reading both the recent reviews and the most helpful reviews, talking about the same issues that go back 1-2+ years ago, I decided to not even open the app. I know people will think 💭 “you should open the app and then decide what you want to do.” BUT if I had the reviews first, I would never have downloaded the app. So it’s a mute issue. Thanks to everyone that left a review. Not only did your reviews save me from spending money for no reason, especially during this pandemic. But you saved me from a headache, anxiety, aggravation, and my time which I can now use to search for apps that you all mentioned, along with the one I’ve used forever. DISAPPOINTED & DELETED!!
Quite Disappointed
by Shoeshoemama on 2021/04/02 15:54
I purchased the subscription, because I liked the opportunity to edit some of my product photos, especially the backgrounds. But sadly the tools for adding/changing backgrounds do not work like the videos show. Supposedly you are supposed to be able to select a background and just paint it on the areas to change it and it would bump up sharply (as in crisp edges) against the objects in the foreground. It did not work for me that way. And I thought maybe it was because of the photo, so I tried it with a different photo to even worse problems. When I selected a background, it covered the entire picture and you can remove it from the center picture, but not crisply and is counter intuitive to the video instructions. It doesn’t work exactly as portrayed. I’m very disappointed and have cancelled y subscription because of it.
Very Disappointed
by Yesii87 on 2020/11/30 09:19
I have never ever written a review about any app before. But I will now in case any of you are looking to download this one. I DO NOT recommend this app anymore. This used to be my favorite app to edit photos because the free tools that they offered were amazing!!! Like the paint & reshaping option which were the ones I used the most. But all of a sudden they decide to update it and now start charging a ridiculous amount in order to use these tools that were once (for a very long time) FREE! And they also put a block on the app where you can’t screenshot the photo you have just edited. Honestly, it is not worth the money or the download just for those 2 tools that I really loved. I will be looking for other apps to use and will be deleting this one, I will not download it ever unless they offer those tools again and don’t charge a ridiculous amount. For that reason I give this rating ZERO STARS.
Better off getting the old version
by MisaMisaMay on 2021/01/13 22:20
Some of the basic things you use it the most for (smoother, sharpen, structure, reshape, patch, paint/tones) are no longer free. You already pay just to download the app....it was definitely a slap in the face to make the most common tools a VIP thing you gotta subscribe and pay for monthly. They’re all free in the original Facetune, just most of the tools in the original aren’t as advanced/upgraded and you gotta take your time to not mess up or make it look super fake. FaceTune2 tools just had some slight improvement so the tools are easier to use with more natural finish but taking your time you can still achieve the same things with the original. I would of rather they added new and unique features that were premium rather than taking core tools and making them premium. I would of rather they placed ads (but nothing too crazy) for revenue than charging for basic tools.
The update ruined the app
by Vanessamariaa on 2020/10/12 19:40
I’d like to start by saying I used to love this app. It worked wonderfully... then they changed which features cost money and which do not. I have no issues paying outright for an app or even a one time payment for tools I need/love. I have the original Facetune which costs money, but it offers so little in comparison to what this app, Facetune2, used to offer for free. They took basic photo editing tools that were free away for a monthly cost. So If you only edit 1 photo every few months this is a ridiculous cost to pay for basic tools that use to be free. It’s one thing if they made the app just cost money but to pay MONTHLY for a single feature you may need only once, is ridiculous. Then to make matters worse, I was looking through reviews to see if anyone else was equally frustrated (since this payment situation wasn’t even listed as part of the apps update) when I saw a response from the Facetune team claiming some of the tools, that you now need to pay for, are in fact still free... which is just simply not true. I don’t understand the point of listing features claiming they’re free when they aren’t as a response to a customers constructive feedback and concerns. This is counterproductive, dismissive and tone deaf. This app that used to be wonderful seems like a now grab for money.
locking and unlocking features is SUPER ANNOYING
by __SarahM on 2021/08/13 23:35
i swear facetune just cannot choose whether they wanna give us certain things for free or not. one minute the reshape tool and paint tool is free to use, next minute it’s locked and you gotta pay for it, next minute it unlocked again, then locked back again. it’s very ANNOYING. just make up your mind, it’s either you give it to us for free or not. at this point i will delete the app for good. y’all can’t be so selfish. you can barely do anything good for free already, they’re literally taking everything good away from the app unless you pay for it. it’s an actual shame, unless facetune unlocks the features again, i will soon be deleting. if you’re looking for an alternative, picsart has in app features, but their reshape tool as well as paint tool is free! and there isn’t any back and forth locking and unlocking. i don't recommend this app unless you have loads of money to waste!
NOT free, NO clear labels
by MyMistica on 2019/07/09 23:32
So I was very excited to see this new version was free after learning about the app in an online article I was reading that showed a before and after picture a girl had edited. HOWEVER, when I actually got into the app, it keeps constantly saying everything I do is premium-only. Unlike PicMonkey that clearly labels what is and is not premium-only by adding star signs on premium features, this app doesn’t seem to have any labeling of what is and is not free. I don’t want to see here and go through every single thing to figure out what I can and can not do. I can understand having some features as premium but if have little to no free features despite allowing the app download to be free, no one can try the app to feel comfortable enough TO spend money on it. I guess I’ll just continue using the free photoshop apps. Super frustrated with this now.
BRING BACK VIGNETTE
by Salspice on 2021/01/08 18:35
i have paid for the monthly subscription for this app for about a year and i am HAPPY to do so as it is my go to for editing. As a content creator, it is frustrating to have to use several apps to get the end result you desire. However, with this recent update to add sparkle, hair colors, and clothes, some of the old tried & true features have changed. I use the vignette option probably half the time i make edits... it has now moved to the “edit” tab and it is simply not the same. it is far less customizable & basically not useable for me anymore. I need this feature back to the way it was, PLEASE. also, rather than introducing childish edits like hair color & clothes, please consider adding the capability to watermark photos within this app. it would be life changing to have this feature.
Good
by BiBiqueen👑 on 2020/12/18 18:09
I've been using this app for a while now and I was happy with all the features I could use for free but every now and then when the app updates, it takes away all the good free features I was mainly using to edit. The reshape, paint were things I used a lot that was free and now apparently I have to pay for them which is disappointing. On the face edit when it updated, new features like editing the size of the face, lips, nose, eyes or eyebrows were added to use for free and now it's not. The paid features that were before free make me use it less as it was the main thing I was using it for. I would still give it 3 stars for the work it gave before the update and for the couple of things that I still slightly use that are free. It is a good app just disappointed with the updates.
Upsetting update
by Disapponting_updates on 2020/11/02 04:19
I used to LOVE this app, but with the recent update they have decided to take away the most widely used tools and have them be only available for premium customers. I was even considering purchasing a subscription because I loved the app that much, however a yearly subscription is extremely pricey at almost $40 which is not ideal for most people. I’m now looking for a different app to use for my editing, but I’m really sad to leave this app behind. I’m hoping the app designers are willing to fix this update and give back the reshape and paint tools as I know many people are giving up the app due to this update. I would even be willing to watch ads in return for the tools. Just really disappointed that this app is trying to get more money out of people who really enjoyed the app by taking away popular tools.

Why should I pay twice and for a subscription , I already did a couple of years ago when I first purchased the app. I’m done with this

by roguelogo on 2021/10/08 20:40
It totally does not do what it shows in it’s facebook adds. It is NOT free but performs like most of the free apps. It also has adds even in the paid version. If it were not a pay app it would be good.
Not free
by Andsc on 2021/10/08 12:22
This app is on the top free app chart but you have to pay a pricey subscription if you want to use.

Already have a subscription

I already have a subscription but it won’t let me transfer it to my new account.. don’t offer something for free for years and then get greedy and ask people to start paying.. just go on and be a sorry company and not offer a free version
Free 7 day trial???
by mommadubs44 on 2021/09/28 04:03
I downloaded this to edit one picture with the “guarantee” of a free seven day trial. The instructions said it would be easy to cancel in the settings tab. There’s absolutely nothing in the settings tab to let me cancel… frustrated.
Removing this app
by Sempiturnel on 2021/09/28 01:55
I’ve been using this app periodically for the last year or so. And suddenly I have to be a VIP to use basic features that were free not too long ago? LOL, deleted! Life is expensive enough!
Rip off
by genzger on 2021/09/28 00:09
I got this app because I saw all the good reviews. I paid $4 to get it but I can’t do anything on it unless I subscribe to a payment plan. Be upfront with this and don’t charge us if you are already pushing a subscription! I will not use or recommend

Need A Refund
by pinkdragonflyxx on 2021/09/26 09:26
This is the SECOND time this app has charged me when I haven't selected to buy the premium version, but now it's charged me $38 for an app I forget about half the time. I canceled the subscription the first time it charged me. And then it chooses the next highest price and charges me for that instead. I canceled the subscription AGAIN and deleted the app this time. Please help me get a refund. I don't just have money I can throw away and this is just frustrating.

They got rid of the most popular feature and if you think I’m gonna pay for….. you thought wrong Facetune.
Not Free

Silly App - also, don’t trust Apple
by Toyacita on 2021/09/24 20:05
The app doesn’t do anything it claims to do in the Instagram ads. Waste of $ especially when they pre-charge you BEFORE the trial period has ended. Request refund before 60 days. Unfortunately I had two family deaths around that time of small children & was understandably distracted. Apple was not willing to even try to attempt to provide customer service on this issue. Please don’t expect anyone to do their jobs... That is not an expectation you can have anymore especially at a corporation that only cares about the bottom dollar.
Removed features that now make you pay
by Rosalina4184 on 2021/09/24 10:10
Everyone downloaded this app to use the reshape feature that use to be free but now they make you pay for it and won’t let you screenshot. It just makes us delete the app and use others that have it for free.
stop putting facetune in the file name how embarrassing
by 6abii on 2021/09/23 02:59
everyone can see the file name when you share an image. it should be discreet SOOO EMBARRASSING.
This app is stupid

This used to be my favorite app, until they got greedy. Now you can’t do anything without paying, even the stuff they label as free, isn’t! Such a waste!
Unable to use

Privacy issues
by big island on 2021/09/14 19:39
I am sure the features are cool, but I never got that far. Most apps let you pick specific photos to allow access to. This app does not. They want full access to your photo library, your location and your microphone. Not ok with me. So I deleted.
Cheap
by AliciaB808 on 2021/09/12 18:08
This app used to be good until they started making you pay for every feature possible. It’s no longer worth my time and will be using other apps

REQUIRES access to your social media account to use
by Kilgrey on 2021/09/11 23:46
I deleted it as soon as I saw that it required me to login with my apple account, gmail or Facebook account. Why not charge 1.99 for the app? If this app does what it claims I would be happy to pay for it. But I don’t want to give another random company access to my accounts.
Ummm...
by trash panda 69 on 2021/09/11 22:45
Ok so I have had this app for a long time and I just uninstalled it. The creators are talented no doubt but they have gotten money hungry. Things that used to be free on the app are suddenly needed with a subscription and everything that isn’t can already be done on my phone in photos. I understand if you have a subscription for the newer items or something but making things that were previously free something you have to pay for? I don’t think so, not to mention the price, it’s 7.99 a month which in my eyes isn’t worth the money, not to mention it’s always trying to get me to review and review like fine ok here’s your review your not gonna like what comes out of it though lol. All in all don’t waste your money I’m sure there are other developers out there who won’t try to screw you out of your money.
Subscription required.
by Azulfwoggy on 2021/09/11 22:06
Why did I pay $3.00 to download this app only to have to sign up for a subscription to save my photos?
Veiled promises and unrequited love
by ClassicalCajun on 2021/09/11 16:13
I used to love you, but you’ve backed out on the very promises our vows we’re based upon 💔 I don’t want make this about money. It’s really about the kids. We only started out wanting two, but those two became so greedy that we had to take on second jobs to support them, and now we have no time left in our relationship for the love that started us. Now I don’t know if I even love our kids anymore… So the fun is over when I have to pay for what use to be a stellar, free app. Now the basic intuitive features of face “smoothing” and lighting and background editing are just trials, and if I still have to pay a monthly or annual fee for a subscription of mediocre cheap-looking effects. I keep checking back to see if these features have improved with upgrades/fixes and if there are improvements to the free setting. Not to date. I will continue reading pro-reviews to see if the subscription of $70 for this app outshines Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions and learning curves.
Just a no

What was once free now costs $8 monthly
by britneyjean6223 on 2021/09/10 15:53
It’s unfortunate when a great app that was once free now has a price tag. I love the Facetune apps. But I hate that what was free in the original app now costs money in the second version. They should have included all the free stuff from the first version and then hooked you with the new and improved things they have. Freaking LAME that they didn’t.
Greedy developers
by MidnightSon13 on 2021/09/08 23:00
Yet another app that was fantastic even in its lite (free) version, and is now taking away many features and making you pay for them. I’ve had this app since the first version, or at least when it was just ‘Facetune’ and it’s been great! But now, many basic features that we’re used to using and frankly, ones that are necessary for even quick photo editing are now not available unless you pay for a subscription. Not cool… I’ll be doing 100% of my editing now on Lightroom and Photofox.
Cheap update
by Cammie.Cat on 2021/09/04 22:11
They recently updated the app to make you pay for anything worth using that used to be free. Download something better.

Great but,
by Dhdebxd on 2021/09/03 22:28
The app is great, it really needs a queue feature though. It’s so hard to tell if you’ve already edited one or a copy of it. I’d love to see that happen. Also there should be an edit history bc sometimes I’ll corner myself in with edits that I can’t undo but need to causing me to have to restart.
Waste of time
by 1995Schenk on 2021/09/03 19:39
Don’t download this says free but you have to buy stuff in order to use it like I’m just use some of the stuff but when you even try to re edit your photos it won’t even show up for you to edited it
Charges Full Year When Signed Up for Month
by lovely-red-head on 2021/09/03 17:29
I thought I would try out the app for a month at the $2.99 cost but lo and behold, a charge of $35.99 appeared on my bank account today. Not cool. I would like this resolved ASAP. I will be contacting my bank to dispute the charge if I don’t receive a response from Support. Not happy.

Arrangement of subscriptions
by jjjjjjjaaaaeeee on 2021/09/03 05:13
The price of the video and retouch subscriptions are right next to each other and the same price. Accidentally chose video when I don’t use that. Now I’m stuck paying for a year? I accidentally let my retouch subscription lapse for two days and because they’re forcing video this happens. I won’t be using this app anymore. They have bad support.
U are ruining the experience
by isaior on 2021/09/02 19:33
Every update makes the app more difficult to use. Now you want a login. Now we cannot select specific photos instead you want access to ALL photos. Come on f*^%ers, enough of it!
Uninstalled
by fuhgjnk on 2021/09/02 03:29
I’ve had this app for years. I’ve had a subscription before but found it silly since the only thing I used was one of the free features, so I canceled it. Now that feature is behind a paywall. I feel they should have added new premium features for subscription not taken away old free features. Now they’ve made it so you can’t even screenshot your OWN photo to save it. If the developers would have just added something new and worthwhile then maybe I would be a subscriber instead of uninstalling.
It was great before they took away everything
by S414 on 2021/09/01 18:46
The reshaper and paint tool used to be free until James Charles used it in a YouTube video and then they updated to app so everyone that was using it before can’t use it anymore cause you need to pay a subscription to use it.

I used this app to edit any of my photos and I’ve been a customer using this for years. Up until today where they decided to charge for the things I loved most about the app. Not using this app until they fix it. So upset to see this. Not fair for the people who have been using this!!
Rug Pull Mistake
by mrWINNER1234 on 2021/09/01 01:02
Facetune has always been a great app but to update the pay model making it impossible to use is ridiculous. You think I’m gonna pay 60 dollars for an app??? Really???? I hope this decision results in your user base dropping this app. Just waiting a competitor to have open season on the people that are dropping this app!
not worth it
by coffee anonymous on 2021/08/31 15:35
honestly really scummy to suddenly start charging for the only reason anyone downloads this app. loved this app for the past few years, but now you need a subscription to do anything.
Why?
by The_Ninja_ on 2021/08/31 05:14
I was able to use the retouch and paint features free before the app was updated. Why be selfish and make people pay for that? Wasn’t that what the first Facetune app was for? For the paying customers? Please remove that option I would like to be able to use this app without paying for those features.
Subscription killed the app…
by Chris Sliger on 2021/08/30 15:29
While I understand the idea that the developers apparently need motivation for further updates, it used to be something they took pride in for having built a quality product and then stayed with it or sold it for a crazy amount of money. Before switching to a subscription basis they may want to consider how to value their products. Apple Music is $15 for a family of up to 6 with hundreds of thousands of songs and videos. Apple Arcade is $6 with hundreds of hours of games for everyone in your family to share. Take that concept and look at your photo captive app. It’s far overpriced and the “Optics” of it screams greed. It’s a blunt review but by the masses you’re hoping to be a multi-millionaire on one photo app too fast. Core features that were available before stripped down to try and force a subscription is tyrannical and Apple should eliminate the setup altogether unless it’s something that is completely new and different each month like magazines or a streaming service.
used to love it
by someone who used to be a fan on 2021/08/28 14:53
I used to use this app for almost every picture if there was something in the back i didn’t like i could move it now i have to pay for that, my friend doesn’t but is somehow still able too now it’s just a hassle n not worth it
If I could give 0 stars I would
by SugarPlumPoptart on 2021/08/28 14:46
I selected the $2.99 subscription option as I only needed it to touch up one photo and it automatically changed it to the $35.99 option.
“Free” but not
by Senior10 on 2021/08/28 01:07
So you can download the app for free, but have to have a subscription to use anything. I hate apps that say “free” and have “in-app purchases” that are required in order to use the app. When I think in-app purchases I think of extras or help the person progress fast or whatever. Apple really should say “subscription required” for these types of apps rather than “in-app purchases” to differentiate between the two experiences.
OMG
by Learj25 on 2021/08/27 20:50
Total scam. What used to be free now requires a membership. There are many other apps that are actually free. If you only use it every now then get one that doesn’t false advertise.

by Ed-Ber on 2021/08/26 15:30
Facetune original was a good app that I paid for. They say it’s been updated to the new free version which now requires a monthly subscription, what?? For an app you use maybe once a year? Deleted!! Goodbye Facetune 2..
Outsmarted you factune 2
by syjnbxf m on 2021/08/26 11:29
Ok… I guess if you take a screenshot of your modified photo and you go to gallery, facetune blocks your photo. Hey Facetune. What are you gonna do about me swiping up to see my recent apps and screenshooting it from there. After that just zoom in and boom…ive got a free screenshot. Youve failed to block my photo. Whoops.

Greedy Developers: DO NOT USE
by robert1253 on 2021/08/24 19:22
This app uses sneaky techniques of trying to get you to pay for the app. They allow you to edit the features so that you spend time to make it look the way you want, but as soon as you try to save it, it prompts you to pay 8 dollars a month. Monetizing an app is totally understandable but by not making it clear to a user upfront and charging for the most basic features such as retouch makes me think these developers are just trying to take your money. Do not download unless you are willing to pay 8 bucks a month
You can’t even save the pictures without premium
by Kinsley Neal ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ on 2021/08/23 22:08

Not Free, Even 1%
by Kait_nofilter on 2021/08/23 17:33
No part of this is free. You have to choose a payment option before you can even upload a photo. 1/10, do not recommend.

Pay to Retouch now?
by ferrjdjs on 2021/08/21 17:03
After retouching two previous photos, I just tried doing a third and you now have to pay for it. Ridiculous! Deleted this app off of my phone and won’t be using it until this is fixed. Instead of taking away features, try adding new ones that can enhance user experience and hide those behind a paywall.
I thought this was free!!
by ASAP Loso on 2021/08/20 22:30
Decent app but now they want to charge for it, will be deleting it ASAP! There are other apps that do the same things and that are 100% free.
Buyer beware
by ashmoe2004 on 2021/08/20 13:28
I was given the option to make a one time payment of $69.99 for unlimited use. I paid it because I hate subscriptions. Now on top of that charge I have been charged a $38 subscription fee. I am requesting a refund, because that is ridiculous.
New fees
by Catch211 on 2021/08/19 15:05
They have suddenly become greedy and are charging for previously free features. Do your research. There are other apps you can use.
The removal tool is crap!
by HDRider56 on 2021/08/17 23:41
The removal option does not work! It’ll “mostly” remove the image BUT you’re left with a blurry mess where the image used to be.
Not free must pay after seven days
by Bigg Chubb on 2021/08/17 17:40
For seven days you get limited access and then you will be charged. Guess they’re hoping I will forget when seven days are. I am calling Clickbait because it says it is free. Free trial does not mean free. Free means free.😉 Developer response says everything will be free. Must be a language barrier. You must sign up for a free trial like I said. My other free apps you download them and you play them. Because they are free. Keyword being free. Developer I will give you time to research your English. But first Google translate because it will not help you.

locking and unlocking features is SUPER ANNOYING
by __SarahM on 2021/08/13 23:35
i swear facetune just cannot choose whether they wanna give us certain things for free or not. one minute the reshape tool and paint tool is free to use, next minute it’s locked and you gotta pay for it, next minute it unlocked again, then locked back again. it’s very ANNOYING. just make up your mind, it’s either you give it to us for free or not. at this point i will delete the app for good. y’all can’t be so selfish. you can barely do anything good for free already, they’re literally taking everything good away from the app unless you pay for it. it’s an actual shame, unless facetune unlocks the features again, i will soon be deleting. if you’re looking for an alternative, picsart has in app features, but their reshape tool as well as paint tool is free! and there isn’t any back and forth locking and unlocking. i don't recommend this app unless you have loads of money to waste!
Disappointed
by createnickname2.0 on 2021/08/13 05:40
I never write reviews but these updates are really ridiculous. What's the point of having free editing options just to later charge for them? It makes even less sense considering there already is an original facetune that costs money and this is supposed to be a free alternative; on top of this the developers don't seem to care about the multiple reviews that are complaining about the same thing. I would give this 0 stars if I could.

CHANGE YHE BACKDROP
by lizzy46girl on 2021/08/12 05:19
PLEASE change the backdrop feature to how it used to be , it’s impossible to correct anything after the backdrop is put in place because it TAKES SO LONG to fix the background if you’re trying to completely erase anything . My finger hurts from trying to erase like that. It was never like that before !! I hate it so much, please fix it, gonna be deleting the app otherwise.
I have had this app for a long time
by sallyrena on 2018/05/20 01:29
I have loved this but all of a sudden it dose not work . I have asked for help they just give me a lot of junk that only a lawyer could read When it has worked I really loved it but right now I so upset because I can’t get it to work . It’s a google app and they want me to buy an upgrade. When it works it’s a 4 Star now it’s a one star! This app contact me to clarify what was going on. The error was mine not theirs. I still don’t fully understand as I use the app for a very long time. But it appears that I had not paid for that app so I appreciated them contacting me and clarifying what was going on. I would give this app a very strong 5 stars and do appreciate contact with them with clear and easy to understand information about what had been going on
Just no.
by Łïzziē on 2020/10/31 06:29
Selfish app creators. How do you have a “free” option with limited stuff “which Is decent limited stuff” but only allow us to “preview” our edits??? Then when we go to save the photo we edited with your “so called free” limited edition or whatever you would call it, it does NOT allow you to save a picture you edited using their “free” option. It tries to make you pay for it. So what I use to do was screenshot the photo I edited with the FREE option. But since the app creators are selfish they seriously put a block on screenshots 😂😑 don’t ask me how the hell they did that but that obviously doesn’t stop us 🤷🏻‍♀️ they forget how advanced & updated IPhones are now a days. A screenshot block didn’t block me from still claiming my “so called free edits” ya know the one they offer to you for FREE but then try to get you once you’re done editing your hphoto😂😂 I’m just making this review to let people know that this app isn’t all that. And how it has false advertising & how the creator really thought they would be able to not allow me to keep the photo I just edited 😂😂 there’s other ways of saving what’s on your screen other then a screen shot. “It was worth a shot though” 😉 but seriously people the App Store has way better and FREE editing apps that have the same exact options as this one & more. You cam, inshot, filterra-(my fave one ) Also love image effect edit lab. 🤓😏😏😏😋
Too many subscriptions
by **1024** on 2020/11/18 22:13
I have had this app for a very long time. It was my go-to app for touching up photos, changing filters, etc. but recently they updated the app and you are now forced to be a subscriber (meaning you have to pay) for certain options that originally, for a very long time, were free. I supposed that the creators of the app started catching on to the fact that some people were screenshotting their edited photos so as to not have to pay the ridiculous subscription fee (I don’t blame them for trying to screen shot anything. It’s ridiculous that you have to pay an outrageous price for something that was once free) and now you can’t even do that. If you try to screenshot it, a message pops up saying something along the lines of “nice try!” Or “it was worth a shot!” And telling you that you have to subscribe and pay a fee for that certain feature. Like I said before, I was a long time user of this app, I had it even before they switched it to “Facetune2”. But now with all these restrictions and fees, I have deleted the app and will no longer use it again unless they remove these recent restrictions and “features”. I hope this was helpful for anyone who plans on using it. It’s not a bad app if you’re willing to pay the outrageous amount they ask for small features.
Destroyed photo + need email all of a sudden for support?
by Michael Krueger Voorhees on 2021/04/27 12:04
I went back to the app after editing a photo. I was maybe exited out of the app for 20 minutes and when I entered again and went to edit the same photo I thought it obviously saved. My changes to the photo had been permanently altered, and I had not completely exited out of the app or refreshed it. Instead of the regular photo it was supposed to save, it saved a weird screenshot including some of the editing tools inside the photo. I had the blue curve marks permanently around my face from when I was previously editing my same photo. I also had the rest of the options for tools and editing options taking up most of the top and bottom of the photo. My face was the only part of the photo that was visible and the original photo included my whole entire body. I tried contacting support but it told me that I needed to two add an email to my account. From the beginning I have logged in with my gmail account email and password to use the app, because of this requested email issue I have searched the settings and found there is no option to add an email; therefore I cannot contact support about this issue. I am currently paying for the monthly membership and to experience these issues is inconvenient. Hopefully someone will reach out to me about this issue. Thank you.
Retouch and Paint features
by vicobregond on 2020/11/08 21:08
I read a review prior to writing this one that discussed the same issues I’m having. I honestly think the developers of facetune are talented and have created an amazing app, however I don’t think its fair to suddenly update the app and start charging for two features that have allowed them to gain so many downloads: the retouch and paint option. I use this for work, for myself, and for friends who need help fixing photos. Frankly, I pay too many subscriptions to be able to afford another one just for these two options. I think that they can increase their revenue for the app by adding more features such as hair color or clothing (available through subscription) rather than charging for the ones that were once promises to be free. Please open these features up to free users again, those who can afford to continuously pay a subscription will pay for the other, new, and much cooler features you guys have been adding! App is great in use, no crashes, it was just this one thing. P.S. it seems that the hype over facetuning that has been introduced by influencers has made the creators believe that they should suddenly start charging more for what they call a “selfie editing app”.
Can do pretty much nothing for free.
by Lexi partner on 2021/02/22 14:38
It is pretty terrible. The app works and all but in order to do anything you have to buy a membership like OMG WHAT!?! I tried to edit one photo but every time I tried to save the photo it it pulled up the join membership page. This app said u could use it and it would be for free but you really can’t. I just wanted to play around with some photos but I can’t. I tried to take screenshots of the photos but because of lines they added around your face I can’t have a good looking photo. Honestly the app is dumb. I would understand having to some money for things you want to use but not have a membership I was going to use this app what twice every three months? But now I am deleting the app. It is useless to me. At least if u r going to have the membership thing show what u have to have a membership to use. Also what about the people that already bought everything? Now they can’t use it unless they also buy the membership. There are plenty of free app editors that I can use instead. I would try out the original Face-tune but it already costs money and I have no clue wether I need a membership there too. This app was a waste of my time. I had to put it at least a one star but honestly this is a zero star from me.
I’m so disappointed.

I NEVER write reviews but I’m so disappointed about the updated Facetune 2. This app was one of the best photo editing apps that I have ever seen. I usually use Adobe Photoshop (with my school acc) to edit my photography. However, the app for Adobe Photoshop is really confusing to me. Facetune 2 offered a free app that provided an easy-to-use Photoshop application to fix everyday pictures and make them look high quality. Then, they got greedy and decided to “make some things cost money” in order to provide new tools. The new tools are not relevant and nearly as usable as the ones that used to be free. Listen, the free version of Facetune 2 always had in-app purchases, which is totally understandable; Until they made the most crucial tools cost money. For example, the paint tool is a great way to brighten backgrounds subtly and enhance vibrant colors in pictures. It gave you free range to edit your hair color, eye color, shirt color, sky color, car color, etc. Then they decided to make it offered to members only. They did this with all the popular/needed tools and now the app is useless. I’ve switched back to Photoshop and FaceApp (which is free). I’m just so disappointed with the updates, maybe if they ever go back I’ll re-download. Until then it’s 0 stars from me.
I use to love this app
by m89aria on 2018/11/13 04:37
I started with the original, later paid for the second one and was quite happy with it even though periodically I had to relearn a feature because of an update or add on. Slowly the add ons became useless for me and the features I paid one time for weretaken away and replaced by an outrageous subscription to add back the useful features that took me some time to perfect along with all these newer items that were sub par and looked fake anyway. The best features were either taken away and now being charged again at a higher monthly rate or they were moved, modified or made less effective/ quality/ professional/believable/etc or buried in so many other layers of stuff that I quit using it. I try every now and then to see if they offer an alternative (closer to the facetune2 from a year ago at a reasonable price I would pay for using and be happy with). But its still leaning towards the canned presets and filters that so many others do. They used to-be so unique and semi-expert modifications could be made with precision that the professional apps could do with a lot less complicated processes. But I think they lost a lot of fans. Oh well maybe they will come out with a third one.
not as good as before
by imposter kinda sus on 2020/10/23 20:51
I used to really, really like using this app for its free options. The retouch options were (and still are) mostly available, as were the reshape, and the paint option was probably my favorite, because there was so much you could do with it, from changing lighting on the face, fixing skin discoloration, or touching up or adding makeup. It was a game changer, and I couldn’t find another app that matched it in that regard. I really relied on the retouch and paint features, the latter especially, and were the main reason I used and recommended the app to others. Now that it’s added new features and rendered some of those previously mentioned features - namely the paint option - only available through subscription, I’m enjoying it a lot less and looking into using other apps. I’m sure that the newer features would be useful to some people, but I kind of wish that I could have a choice to opt out of them + just retain use of the previous gestures without purchase. Idk. My rating went down a star because of these new added “perks” that are, in my opinion, a lot less useful.
It’s.. not really free
by Dixina_Pup on 2019/02/18 05:29
Okay, I downloaded this app for fun. But I also thought it would be fun to just mess around with photos and make photos of myself... well... BETTER... So if you are reading this review before downloading this, the app itself might be free but to get all the good stuff you have to pay. Okay, MOST of the stuff you have to pay for! I would NOT recommend this for someone who is not willing to pay money (like me) and I know, you are probably telling me that “not everything is going to be free” and I know! I’m just saying most of the stuff you have to pay for which leads to some people deleting it (like me). Also, I have tried some of the stuff you have to pay money for for free, and some of the stuff isn’t even good! It looks totally weird and photoshopped and looks unprofessional. Although some of the stuff works wonders and is really good. But I’m not sure if you are getting what you are paying for. Your paying for good quality! Not bad quality! So these are things I am saying. Someone might have totally different thoughts on this game. But I will give this a two star. I deleted this but I am willing to try it again if things gets fixed. ⭐️⭐️
Veiled promises and unrequited love
by ClassicalCajun on 2021/09/11 16:13
I used to love you, but you’ve backed out on the very promises our vows we’re based upon 💔 I don’t want make this about money. It’s really about the kids. We only started out wanting two, but those two became so greedy that we had to take on second jobs to support them, and now we have no time left in our relationship for the love that started us. Now I don’t know if I even love our kids anymore… So the fun is over when I have to pay for what use to be a stellar, free app. Now the basic intuitive features of face “smoothing” and lighting and background editing are just trials, and if I still have to pay a monthly or annual fee for a subscription of mediocre cheap-looking effects. I keep checking back to see if these features have improved with upgrades/fixes and if there are improvements to the free setting. Not to date. I will continue reading pro-reviews to see if the subscription of $70 for this app outshines Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions and learning curves.
The makeup features and Subscriptions
by Emmy loves kittnes on 2020/11/28 03:27
FaceTune, I used the app to practice makeup, not to pay to draw makeup on a character/human. The tools also won’t help or won’t attach to the right place when it’s clear and solid so it should. You also have way to many payed items to the point where you can literally just make your character smile and have glowing hair and some people really wanna practice makeup, now FaceTune 1 may have the feature but I am looking forward for FaceTune 2. I hate how almost everything you have to pay for. No one will use your app because how everything you have to pay. I’m 100% sure it had way better reviews when the new features of the subscription’s or blah blah blah wasn’t out. I still really hate how I can’t even practice makeup on a human!? You really think I will buy subscription’s no way! I don’t care if it’s 3 dollars I’m still mad because some people want it’s free because they don’t have the money! Sorry if the review didn’t make since or if it was mean but no one is gonna use your app if you have your subscriptions like this any longer so I recommend you change the app. ~Thank you for reading
it’s ok
by hdkdekxix on 2021/02/22 09:39
I used to really like this app for some basic photo editing but they’ve added two features (paint and retouch) that were previously free to the subscription package. There are still features that I like but taking away these two features that were already free (esp since I really liked and used the paint feature to add more vibrancy to photos) was a bit of a turn off so I’m gonna look for a new editing app since I feel that the few free features that are left can be found others that have more to offer. Like I get it they need to make money but to be honest I only use the app for very basic photo editing so to me it’s not worth buying a subscription to. I honestly don’t really recommend this app unless you’re planning to buy the subscription. If you are they do have some cool features but if you’re not the only things you can do on here is put filters on your pics and smooth/conceal your skin. and like crop photos and mess around with photo exposure but you can already do that on your phone so yeah not rlly worth the storage space.
Revision: 40 dollar app robbery
by hellachels on 2019/01/18 22:23
Soooo I did what I said I’d do in my previous review. I just kept it since I have to have it for work & idk what the last update did but when you go to refine the size of something or completely fuzzes it out. You also messed with patching, say when needing to add a patch of hair somewhere else it is completely different from what it use to be it picks up the underneath of the part you are trying to cover and makes it look crazy. When patching it is also extremely frustrating to rotate an image or turn your selection because it changes the grain of the patch instead of what you are selecting. Again for your pompous 40 dollars your development delay is beyond lazy. I canceled this app four days ago after I noticed you were going to charge me 40 dollars for your stupid app. Not ever in my life would I pay that for an APP- once a year or not! You auto default people to that and even when they cancel it so it doesn’t go through you STILL PROCESS IT. Your app doesn’t even let you selectively touch up like your free one. You’re basically a super expensive Pixlr. Reversing the charge.
All the good features you now have to pay for
by fFzgFFYzzgGhZhx on 2020/09/15 12:22
I’ve been a long time user of this app like probably over three years and recently the tools i used the most and LOVED you now have to pay for. The reason why I had Facetune 2 instead of normal facetune is because I didn’t want to pay money for an editing app like this. Limiting the features unless you pay literally defeats the purpose of the whole “factune 2”cheaper app idea. if you’re willing to spend (wayyy too) money on an editing app like this, just get normal Factune. I’m deleting this app now because the only features it provides are features you can get on a million other apps. It’d be a different story if i didn’t have all the features before and had to pay for the good features from the start (i would have deleted the app right away if i had to pay for the good stuff anyway) but they were mostly free and then taken away which why I’m upset. It changed for no reason besides getting an extra buck. I’d like to hear a response for the purpose of having two apps that do the same thing for more money.
Features that were once free now need subscription
by charlsjr on 2020/11/20 19:25
Updating an app only to make it more expensive is completely disappointing. The two most used features: Paint and Reshape were originally free with Facetune 2, which was what made the app so special, but now they require a subscription. This app was originally a really exciting idea that allowed for amazing features from Facetune to be accessed for free. It was very efficient and although not all the features were free, the ones that were still free offered amazing tools for photo editing. Recently, the app created an update that, although it released new features, changed the settings for some of the best and most used features on the app and they now require the VIP subscription. The Paint and Reshape tools being free are what made this app unique and better than other apps. This kind of action completely cheats the consumers of this app and ruins the once great reputation that Facetune 2 once had. For the Facetune 2 developers: Please reconsider changing the Paint and Reshape features back and available for all users. Thank you.
facetune 1 is way better
by Kyla~Marie on 2019/12/16 16:55
I have had facetune ever since james Charles recommended it and i truly loved it. It was only like $5 and it came with everything i needed. Facetune 2 ruins it for me. You have to pay $6 a month or $70 for a one time payment! Now all of a sudden the original facetune isn't letting me update it because of changes that were made or something. I honestly wish facetune 2 was similar to the original facetune. Your not even getting that much out of facetune 2, there are several apps i can do the same thing for free. I would much rather have facetune 2 be like the original facetune, where you pay for the app and everything is included. For now i will be sticking to the original facetune. This one is super overpriced which in my opinion makes it worse. You guys should've have jumped into monthly and yearly payments and continued to have us pay for the app outright. It's going downhill :( . I was super happy at first seeing it was free and thinking i would only have to pay like $5 in the app but wow i was wrong.
Bait and Switch...
by OneWhisper44 on 2020/10/16 17:36
They used to have free features, still do, BUT now a lot of what used to be FREE for the 2 years I’ve been using it, they changed to now have you buy their subscription or pay the outrageous one time price. It’s fine if you want to have paid features, but they shouldn’t change from being free to having to pay for them all of a sudden. It’s messed up. You use it for 2 years, get used to the things you like, learn how to use them, and then all of a sudden 2 years later you have to pay for what you used to get free. I understand having to pay for certain features, but if other features were free for so long, why now should I pay for them??? Honestly, at first I was like, well I’ll just pay. But then I looked at the prices. Subscription for this app is crazy...the one time fee is even more ridiculous. The features are no where near worth that. There’s apps that do what this does and more and do them better for that price. Unfortunately Facetune has gained such popularity they think it’s okay to do this. It’s not.
So...
by Hard Writer on 2019/01/02 04:06
Overall, it's fine. There's nothing wrong with the effects if they're used correctly. My biggest problem comes from the subscription fees. I use mobile photoshop constantly with peoples faces and it feels almost insulting to see that the only things available for non-payers to use are the things that are already available in photoshop, while the only things that bring anything remotely new to the table requires paying for a fee that is either: completely insane for a mobile app or one that seems small, but when you eventually forget it exists it piles up and slowly drains your bank account. At least the first Facetune one was a one-and-done $3.99 deal. I'll admit, some tools are very well done and are much easier to use for people with less experience in the whole "face editing field". But those things fall short when you realize you have to sell your soul for these minor conveniences. I'm willing to put in a little extra effort in order to get just as desirable results.
I watched this happen, so not saying you should do it...
by Chelsey Annaliese-marieee on 2021/01/13 05:22
So like many apps do, they have VIP membership subscriptions that enable you to unlock certain features. Well a friend of mine is a long time user of the app, but whenever she wanted to use a specific feature that could only be used in the VIP membership, she would just screenshot it. I’m not snitching on her or anything really, but I found this kinda funny. I guess there is a new update on that app that when someone tries to screenshot the photo edited with features without paying for the membership it now will say “It was worth a shot”—it was funny seeing her reaction! But what I thought was even funnier is that when that happened, it didn’t stop her for any longer than 3 seconds. All she had to do was screenrecord her screen for 5 seconds then once it was in her album, she screenshot it from the video & got her picture 😂😂 SO I say that all to say... you all miiiiight want to update your system a little bit to make more of a profit— I guess Gen Z is rather fast 😂🤷🏾‍♀️ Hope this helps!
Used to be one of my favorite apps
by haz the lion on 2020/07/23 20:07
Before this new development, I would have given this app a 5 star rating. It was my favorite app to use to edit pictures of people. It was great and you could really develop a knack for it if you practiced as much as I did. But then today, I went on there to edit a picture and I noticed that two VERY basic editing tools are now payed function only. They had always been free to use and you could pay for other things like backdrop and glitter and auto-fixes. Facetune 2 took away reshaping AND paint. Paint is very useful for making things more colorful or even changing the color of things and color correcting things you are editing out,, as well as many other uses. These two functions were the main ones I used along with smoothing and now facetune has taken them away for a stupid fee. I would go to facetune 1, but even that requires a payment to use. I will not be using facetune anymore and I do not recommend other people do unless they want to pay for the most basic editing tools.
Way too pricy
by Misa Misaki on 2018/05/24 08:51
I’m really disappointed that facetune decided to go with a subscription model. I probably wouldn’t even mind it too much if it wasn’t this expensive! I’m so tempted to buy this app but honestly every time I just have to remind myself it’s not worth it. At the price of $70 I might as well get photoshop on my computer. And what bothers me the most was that at one point the app was available for one time payment of $30 and when I checked back later they had bumped it up to $70 ?? I was so SHOOK that they bumped the price up so much and it discouraged me from buying this app. A subscription model for an app like this in my opinion isn’t worth it. And the only perk old face tune users get is a one month free trial! No discount on the full version, nothing. 🙏🏼 If only I still had the opportunity to purchase this app for $30 (NOT YEARLY) I’d gladly throw my money at facetune but I don’t and I’m not spending $70 so I guess :S I’ll just continue to be upset over it and hopefully some day another app that’s just as good will come out that’s reasonable priced.
Must have for any social media pics
by Mimi090810 on 2017/12/06 22:35
I absolutely LOVE this app. And paying the $4.99 a month is so worth it for all the extras you get. I have an Instagram account that I use for makeup and I hope to be an influencer at some point. This app has helped take my photos to the next level. You don’t have to change your face and make yourself look like someone you’re not, I’m not into that at all. But you can cover a blemish, fix your liner if it’s gotten smudged or faded, fix the tones of the pic (I use this a lot cause my iPhone can tend to wash me out) add lighting to the exact areas you want it in, smooth out pores, sharpen details and textures, and so so so much more. I could not be happier with this app and will be using it on every pic I upload. Won’t be looking for a better app causethis one just does it all :)
One of my go to apps for retouching
by Macuzer on 2017/09/24 13:17
This app is pretty amazing. It makes it incredibly easy to apply professional level effects to your photos. The most used for me are the "Relight" and "Eyes" tools. Unbelievable that such a powerful editing tool is in my pocket! I'm not a fan of SaaS, so I paid the one time price. Pretty expensive, but a bargain when compared to the cost of apps used by pros to accomplish these same types of effects. Just hoping it's continuously updated and I don't have to shell out again because Facetune 3 comes out. TL;DR Amazing app. Great features. Expensive. But still a bargain. Great job to everyone involved in creating this tool. You make me look like a rockstar when I take a picture, correct/enhance it in post and share it. My subjects are always amazed at how good their photo looks.
Subscription killed the app…
by Chris Sliger on 2021/08/30 15:29
While I understand the idea that the developers apparently need motivation for further updates, it used to be something they took pride in for having built a quality product and then stayed with it or sold it for a crazy amount of money. Before switching to a subscription basis they may want to consider how to value their products. Apple Music is $15 for a family of up to 6 with hundreds of thousands of songs and videos. Apple Arcade is $6 with hundreds of hours of games for everyone in your family to share. Take that concept and look at your photo captive app. It’s far overpriced and the “Optics” of it screams greed. It’s a blunt review but by the masses you’re hoping to be a multi-millionaire on one photo app too fast. Core features that were available before stripped down to try and force a subscription is tyrannical and Apple should eliminate the setup altogether unless it’s something that is completely new and different each month like magazines or a streaming service.
Pricey but Worth It!
by RenaeGreenman on 2018/04/05 00:42
This app is by far the BEST photo editing app I have ever used. You can literally do ANYTHING to your selfies, to achieve whatever exact desired effect you wish. This app gets all the little nuances completely right! Even my less flattering selfies come out ravishing after I’ve used FaceTune for enhancements. It is so unbelievably versatile and the tools are comprehensive for whatever you might need. They really thought of everything! I wish this had existed years ago! I never post a selfie or portrait to social media without running it through FaceTune FIRST. It’s become a necessity on my iPhone and my go-to app for all things selfie related! The price is steep but worth it for what you get and how often you’ll find yourself using it. Five enthusiastic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Not worth the financial investment
by 90Bats on 2021/07/26 12:45
I do like the app, especially for things like removing acne from an otherwise good picture… or people. However my skin has cleared and I’m in therapy to remove myself from people I don’t want in photos. The point is that I no longer need the app so I canceled my subscription and deleted the app a couple months ago. I thought my child had put it back on my phone when I saw the charge for $7.99 on my card.. but when I looked it appears that they’ve still been taking my money. I needed a little money for gas and the second I loaded my card, Facetune2 charged me $15 immediately. Again, I no longer use or subscribe to the app. Why are you charging me let alone taking double the monthly amount? I did try to dispute it so I guess we’ll see how that goes. Would I have recommended the app before this? 100% yes. Now? Probably not. Shady.
Amazed........but
by Jesse lee16 on 2018/04/19 05:21
This app is amazing and I can see what people would pay for (ok not really the 70$ for lifetime especially since the first one was only like 4$) but any way my only question is why are basic editing tools such as saturation, highlights, and shadow for vip only??? I mean literally every single editing app free and paid has these things. Even the editor in your photos. This doesn’t really make since to me and it is annoying going back and forth through other apps to have to use these tools. I understand you want to make money but tools like those should just be a given that they are free. One last thing. I wouldn’t say this is app is worth seventy dollars for life time or doing a continuous subscription. A One time purchase of like 7-10$ is probably more of the range this app is in. Great app but yeah.
Nice app! But has lots of bugs.
by Grettacia on 2017/11/04 04:16
I use this app almost EVERYDAY, I find it essential to edit my professional photograph. Due to the fact that I use it so often I’ve noticed some bugs and defects, for example, when I want to crop a picture, after I do it, and want to use another feature, the app freezes for a moment, this is very annoying. Something similar happens when I want to use the darkroom feature. Also, when I’m using the “paint” feature, the options for the colors are right side of the picture, so when I want to color the background, it becomes difficult. Also, it crashes sometimes and I loose all my progress. Overall, this app is great, it has so much potential, I definitely recommend it, but it would make me 100% if y’all were to fix these issues, Thank you so much.
Facetune is amazing
by CHEEEECH on 2019/02/06 18:16
The amount of control over individual facial features is amazing. I give it 5 stars. It is a must for retouches. I was hesitant because of the price. I bit the bullet and bought the full app. I think it was during a sale. So glad I did. Hope they keep updating this app and don’t create a facetune 3 that I will have to pay for it again. Some features that I would like to see are: adjust hairline, add facial hair and hairstyles/colors, add teeth to a smile like “FaceApp”. Add a background feature can definitely be improved. So could some of the eye color and eye reflection features. Appreciate the new neon lightning feature. Please continue to make this app better. Would like to lower receding hairlines ASAP. Important for my retouching of older men. Thank you developers !
Used to be amazing ... not so much now
by CynxRN on 2021/05/05 16:57
This has been my go to app for all my pics I need to edit quickly and simply. Up until recent... there is such a lag when I select any editing options. Especially if I’m just using the single tap to see and compare the original image to the one that I’m working on with. It used to toggle quickly between the two with just a tap which saved me a ton of time. This lag time is when working on the pic.... you could actually count to 3 while waiting for the selection to make the change. This app also won’t let you “patch” completely. It’s always transparent but I’m trying to get rid of an unwanted object in the photo, I literally can’t because you can still see the object through the transparent patched area. Lastly and very importantly... please fix this thing that makes it so I can’t edit any the bottom portion of my photo .... because the edited tools are in the way... the tools can’t be moved or minimized so in order for me to edit my photo at the bottom I have to turn my photo upside down just to reach the bottom part. Please fix these things! I used to LOVE this app but as of late I’ve been looking for another one that doesn’t have all these time consuming and frustrating issues. I should also add that I’ve been a paid member for several years.
Afraid to do Free Trial Due to Poor Reviews
by Facebook Fan2 on 2020/02/18 22:16
After reading all these horror reviews of people actually being charged even after they cancel the free subscription within the appropriate time, I’m a so hesitant to even try it. I read the reviews from the Most Recent not the Most Helpful. The reviews are horrible. Most not about the app itself but when it comes to being charged. If you don’t make it easy to cancel and if people are being billed when they’re not suppose to be and they are letting you know here but all you can give is a generic what seems automated response, then I would beware. Too many people are complaining about the same or similar things. You lost me before me even giving it a try. And I wanted to try. Trust me. But I don’t want to try at the expense of you tampering with my dollars and charging me. Then I have to deal with the frustration of “trying” to get my monies refunded? Maybe when I see better reviews, I’ll reconsider. Until then, I will pass.
BEWARE!! -1 start
by walkerrph on 2020/05/19 16:06
Tried the free trial & realized with my arthritis It was not a good choice for me. I thought I had unsubscribed & had deleted the app but then a charge showed up on my credit card. Okay. If I was remiss there were 2 choices for 1 mo or 1 year...I had not chose either and get billed for $38+ rather than a $5.95 mo? I have tried to work with Apple who advised me to contact the company which has no contact info. NO WAY would I recommend a company that appears to operate in such a nefarious way. **** I love companies who support their product..this may have been my issue but as mentioned above my hand immobility made it problematic to use..hence I stopped the trial after 2 days but was charged for a year. I was refunded my charge and thank you! Great job!!
Definitely an advance!
by Stevearcher on 2018/03/02 15:56
Updated Review: Yes, it's a subscription app. But the developers are constantly improving it and adding WOW! features. Their latest trick are automated backdrops that, in two taps, permit backgrounds to be changed with amazing accuracy. Facetune 2 is the real thing, an app that can still do magic! (And to dispel any doubters, I'm just a more-than-satisfied user with no connection to the publishers.) Like others commenting, I was disappointed to see version 2 of this app go to a subscription model. But a rating should be primarily on merit and only secondarily on cost. And Facetune 2 is a substantive improvement over the original Facetune. Many more features, of which some are quite unique, including some remarkably automated edits!
Longtime User but this is App Extortion!
by bmal4 on 2019/11/10 16:06
I have been using Facetune for YEARS, and a while back paid for a full feature upgrade for a reasonable sum (it was ages ago so I’m thinking between $15-30?) This was more than I’d paid for any other app, but felt it was worth it as it really did elevate photos from my iPhone 6. I didn’t need the app as much when I upgraded to an iPhoneX with a better camera, but Facetune was still my go-to app for specialized editing. I’ve had to “restore purchases” more than once because the app ‘forgets’ I’ve paid for the upgrade. Today I went in and even after restoring purchases, I can’t access features that I’ve had for YEARS without paying monthly fees. Auto-retouching and healing are GONE and I’m being forced to pay for them monthly. That is like app extortion, ridiculous!! I’m done here. Will just use photoshop from now on. Bummer Facetune, I really enjoyed your app.
Great! But...

I Love facetune 2 it’s definitely an upgrade from the first one but I still have a few issues. Firstly in the tones/ paint region of the first one you can choose any color from a color palette and make whatever color you want, however in the second one that option is gone and you have to pick from options that they already have which really limits how far you can go with the tones. Secondly in the tones and paints of Facetune 2 the colors on the side are too big and if I want to color over something on the right I am not able to unless I start from the left and work my way to the right and then erase afterwards which is kind of a hassle if I am just trying to change a simple tone. Overall the app is great but would love to see an update with these fixes!
This app is encouraging fake beauty and the Devs are selfish
by WiselyChoco on 2020/12/21 12:45
This app is not good for kids, teens, adults, or anyone. It encourages people to hide their real beauty and mask it with lies. I only downloaded this app because I needed to write this review to warn any young people to not use this app as way to make you look pretty on pictures for your social medias. This app was created for people who aren’t confident in how they look, but they should be. ALSO this was created to make money off of people who cared enough to change how they actually look. Please do not waste money on this app because your giving the Devs what they want. *IMPORTANT INFO READ NOW* If you are still don’t believe me, you can scroll down to the information section of this app and click on “In-App Purchases” and you’ll be able to see all the in-app purchases inside the app, which should help you understand that this a horrible app created to grab your money to fake your appearance.
Not every effect is free
by 11LCat26 on 2018/11/23 18:14
Face tune works well, better than most I have tried. It’s more intuitive and I like that. It has more useful options but many of the best of them require an upgrade. If you try the upgrade options out while editing a photo, you lose the ability to keep the free options you have tried once you are done, and you will have to redo those effects. I would recommend saving all the free options, then and only then trying out the upgrade options. That way you don’t have to start over. In addition, some of the free options end up looking ridiculous on some faces/photos but normal on others, depending on the person’s original expression and their natural facial attributes.
Ridiculous price for something that was previously free.

I got this app a couple years back and I really enjoyed and loved using it. It was the only app that allowed me to use reshape but kept its original resolution and even location of where I took the photos when saved back to my camera roll. I never bothered to update because the app had no real problems or errors with it. However, UNFORTUNATELY, a couple hours ago I was having trouble saving some pictures to my camera roll, so I decided to update it to see if that’d fix the issue. To my dismay, I came back onto the app to find out that the ONLY tool I used on this ONLY editing app that I use is now $70 AND NO LONGER FREE. That is a RIDICULOUS price to pay for something that was free before and I feel robbed of my experience with this app. It was my favorite editing app and the only one that I used, but now I can’t use it at all. Make it free again and it’ll be 5 stars again.
DOWNLOADED APP 1st, READ REVIEWS 2nd, DELETED APP 3rd
by MarcysMansion on 2020/07/25 22:35
Well I learned from that. Next time I will read the recent reviews before I download any app from here on out. What’s crazy is I normally read reviews beforehand instead of who has the most users and the # of ⭐️ next to it. After reading both the recent reviews and the most helpful reviews, talking about the same issues that go back 1-2+ years ago, I decided to not even open the app. I know people will think 💭 “you should open the app and then decide what you want to do.” BUT if I had the reviews first, I would never have downloaded the app. So it’s a mute issue. Thanks to everyone that left a review. Not only did your reviews save me from spending money for no reason, especially during this pandemic. But you saved me from a headache, anxiety, aggravation, and my time which I can now use to search for apps that you all mentioned, along with the one I’ve used forever. DISAPPOINTED & DELETED!!
Quite Disappointed
by Shoeshoemama on 2021/04/02 15:54
I purchased the subscription, because I liked the opportunity to edit some of my product photos, especially the backgrounds. But sadly the tools for adding/changing backgrounds do not work like the videos show. Supposedly you are supposed to be able to select a background and just paint it on the areas to change it and it would bump up sharply (as in crisp edges) against the objects in the foreground. It did not work for me that way. And I thought maybe it was because of the photo, so I tried it with a different photo to even worse problems. When I selected a background, it covered the entire picture and you can remove it from the center picture, but not crisply and is counter intuitive to the video instructions. It doesn’t work exactly as portrayed. I’m very disappointed and have cancelled y subscription because of it.
Very Disappointed
by Yesii87 on 2020/11/30 09:19
I have never ever written a review about any app before. But I will now in case any of you are looking to download this one. I DO NOT recommend this app anymore. This used to be my favorite app to edit photos because the free tools that they offered were amazing!!! Like the paint & reshaping option which were the ones I used the most. But all of a sudden they decide to update it and now start charging a ridiculous amount in order to use these tools that were once (for a very long time) FREE! And they also put a block on the app where you can’t screenshot the photo you have just edited. Honestly, it is not worth the money or the download just for those 2 tools that I really loved. I will be looking for other apps to use and will be deleting this one, I will not download it ever unless they offer those tools again and don’t charge a ridiculous amount. For that reason I give this rating ZERO STARS.
Better off getting the old version
by MisaMisaMay on 2021/01/13 22:20
Some of the basic things you use it the most for (smoother, sharpen, structure, reshape, patch, paint/tones) are no longer free. You already pay just to download the app....it was definitely a slap in the face to make the most common tools a VIP thing you gotta subscribe and pay for monthly. They’re all free in the original Facetune, just most of the tools in the original aren’t as advanced/upgraded and you gotta take your time to not mess up or make it look super fake. FaceTune2 tools just had some slight improvement so the tools are easier to use with more natural finish but taking your time you can still achieve the same things with the original. I would of rather they added new and unique features that were premium rather than taking core tools and making them premium. I would of rather they placed ads (but nothing too crazy) for revenue than charging for basic tools.
The update ruined the app
by Vanessamariaa on 2020/10/12 19:40
I’d like to start by saying I used to love this app. It worked wonderfully... then they changed which features cost money and which do not. I have no issues paying outright for an app or even a one time payment for tools I need/love. I have the original Facetune which costs money, but it offers so little in comparison to what this app, Facetune2, used to offer for free. They took basic photo editing tools that were free away for a monthly cost. So If you only edit 1 photo every few months this is a ridiculous cost to pay for basic tools that use to be free. It’s one thing if they made the app just cost money but to pay MONTHLY for a single feature you may need only once, is ridiculous. Then to make matters worse, I was looking through reviews to see if anyone else was equally frustrated (since this payment situation wasn’t even listed as part of the apps update) when I saw a response from the Facetune team claiming some of the tools, that you now need to pay for, are in fact still free... which is just simply not true. I don’t understand the point of listing features claiming they’re free when they aren’t as a response to a customers constructive feedback and concerns. This is counterproductive, dismissive and tone deaf. This app that used to be wonderful seems like a now grab for money.
locking and unlocking features is SUPER ANNOYING
by __SarahM on 2021/08/13 23:35
i swear facetune just cannot choose whether they wanna give us certain things for free or not. one minute the reshape tool and paint tool is free to use, next minute it’s locked and you gotta pay for it, next minute it unlocked again, then locked back again. it’s very ANNOYING. just make up your mind, it’s either you give it to us for free or not. at this point i will delete the app for good. y’all can’t be so selfish. you can barely do anything good for free already, they’re literally taking everything good away from the app unless you pay for it. it’s an actual shame, unless facetune unlocks the features again, i will soon be deleting. if you’re looking for an alternative, picsart has in app features, but their reshape tool as well as paint tool is free! and there isn’t any back and forth locking and unlocking. i don't recommend this app unless you have loads of money to waste!
NOT free, NO clear labels
by MyMistica on 2019/07/09 23:32
So I was very excited to see this new version was free after learning about the app in an online article I was reading that showed a before and after picture a girl had edited. HOWEVER, when I actually got into the app, it keeps constantly saying everything I do is premium-only. Unlike PicMonkey that clearly labels what is and is not premium-only by adding star signs on premium features, this app doesn’t seem to have any labeling of what is and is not free. I don’t want to see here and go through every single thing to figure out what I can and can not do. I can understand having some features as premium but if have little to no free features despite allowing the app download to be free, no one can try the app to feel comfortable enough TO spend money on it. I guess I’ll just continue using the free photoshop apps. Super frustrated with this now.
BRING BACK VIGNETTE
by Salspice on 2021/01/08 18:35
i have paid for the monthly subscription for this app for about a year and i am HAPPY to do so as it is my go to for editing. As a content creator, it is frustrating to have to use several apps to get the end result you desire. However, with this recent update to add sparkle, hair colors, and clothes, some of the old tried & true features have changed. I use the vignette option probably half the time i make edits... it has now moved to the “edit” tab and it is simply not the same. it is far less customizable & basically not useable for me anymore. I need this feature back to the way it was, PLEASE. also, rather than introducing childish edits like hair color & clothes, please consider adding the capability to watermark photos within this app. it would be life changing to have this feature.
Good
by BiBiqueen👑 on 2020/12/18 18:09
I've been using this app for a while now and I was happy with all the features I could use for free but every now and then when the app updates, it takes away all the good free features I was mainly using to edit. The reshape, paint were things I used a lot that was free and now apparently I have to pay for them which is disappointing. On the face edit when it updated, new features like editing the size of the face, lips, nose, eyes or eyebrows were added to use for free and now it's not. The paid features that were before free make me use it less as it was the main thing I was using it for. I would still give it 3 stars for the work it gave before the update and for the couple of things that I still slightly use that are free. It is a good app just disappointed with the updates.
Upsetting update
by Disapponting_updates on 2020/11/02 04:19
I used to LOVE this app, but with the recent update they have decided to take away the most widely used tools and have them be only available for premium customers. I was even considering purchasing a subscription because I loved the app that much, however a yearly subscription is extremely pricey at almost $40 which is not ideal for most people. I’m now looking for a different app to use for my editing, but I’m really sad to leave this app behind. I’m hoping the app designers are willing to fix this update and give back the reshape and paint tools as I know many people are giving up the app due to this update. I would even be willing to watch ads in return for the tools. Just really disappointed that this app is trying to get more money out of people who really enjoyed the app by taking away popular tools.
