Description
Focos now supports all devices and editing of all pictures. Focos is a big step into the future of computational photography and light-field camera, bringing DSLR-like photography to your iPhone and iPad Pro, with beautiful bokeh effects usually achievable only with professional large aperture cameras. With the technology of computational photography, you can make unlimited changes to your photos, focus after the fact, change the aperture repeatedly, and add multiple lights in 3D space, exceeding the limits of any editing tools you’ve known before. The creative potential unleashed by Focos is endless. The Verge, "Focos has long been one of the most ambitious photo-editing apps on iOS, turning any photo into a 'portrait mode'-style image with fully adjustable depth of field, no matter what kind of camera you took it with." MAIN FEATURES - Take photos with shallow depth of field, without manually painting or making selections. - True 3D imaging. - Simulate large apertures to create real bokeh effects normally only possible with DSLR cameras and expensive lenses. - Import all existing photos and customize the bokeh effect. - With the advanced technology of machine learning, it calculates the depth of field automatically for every photo. - Re-focus portrait photos that have already been taken, with a simple tap. - Choose from various simulated aperture diaphragms to generate different bokeh spot effects. - Professional options to simulate lens characteristics, such as creamy, bilinear, swirly, and reflex effects, and more. - Visualize the depth of areas within your portrait photos in a 3D view, and intuitively add depth filters. - Add multiple lights in a 3D space, and adjust the color, brightness and so on for each light. - Check the portrait picture in the real world with augmented reality technique. - It is possible to patch the depth map precisely on iPad with Apple Pencil. - Intuitive and easy to use, with built-in video tutorials. - An essential tool for all iPhones and iPads.

Good, not great

This app is amazing...in theory. In practice however this app needs to improve its core algorithm and it’s fine-tuning abilities. The app always seems to miss some spots in the image thinking they are closer than they are. And not blurring them as a result. The current tools available for correcting it simply don’t work well (and I’ve tried every possible way). There needs to be some way not to control where blur is applied with a brush, but to also allow the user to correct the 3D map and tell the app that certain areas are actually farther away than the app thinks. I’m really hoping the engineers working on this app are continuing to invest in the actual blur algorithm rather than on vanity things like UI and blur styles. It still needs more work doing the core of what it is supposed to to: effectively and accurately blur areas that are actually farther away, in such a way that looks natural and realistic.
Incredible

I think this app is absolutely fabulous, It brings out the features in my iPhone 11 Pro, Makes everything look so professional, I think it is worth the money.
I love this app
by Karim.M.rihan on 2019/12/04 04:38
One of my tops favorites photography apps But it would be amazing if live taking photo’s grid\ratio to have 2.66:1. And. 2.76:1. And don’t have to go to crop mode to crop it I also suggest to add (capture outside frame) feature as i can take photos in whatever ratio I choose but still can reverse it back anytime layer in editing if i like
Blurs out my messy backgrounds!
by SanderinaD on 2019/12/04 01:31
I use this for blurring out backgrounds. Works great for that. I haven’t quite figured out the other features. The other features could be more intuitive and easier to figure out. But anyway I really haven’t had time/desire to figure out the other tools. It is a quick easy way to clean up distracting backgrounds. Uses aperture numbers which teaches non photographers about depth of field in a fun easy way. Check it out! Note : I am a boomer don’t be hating on me☮️
Manual focus?
by J@yjayYjAy on 2019/12/04 00:41
This apps amazing. But... could you add a manual focus function? (One that is like a sliding bar)
Love this app.
by Lehan0525 on 2019/12/03 16:30
I can’t believe I had this app on my phone and never tried it. Now that I now how awesome this app is this is the only app I’ll use for all my photos. The lenses are amazing!
Verry good

Worth it

You can edit photos from both your iPhone and DSLR! It’s so worth it!
Great App. Add photos extension compatibility?
by mgilbuena on 2019/11/30 17:38
This is a great app. I’ve been using the ability to add bokeh to retroactively create portrait mode photos from older pictures. It would be great if this app were officially compatible with “photos extensions”. That would allow us to open any photo from within photos.app, and choose edit with Focos. This would retain the modifications as an edit to the photo, instead of creating a duplicate. Any plans to make a Mac app? I would love to use this on my desktop as well.
Best bokeh for Xr

Great app. Considering purchasing
Legendary!
by Boss435 on 2019/11/30 04:45
Man this app is insanely cool. I love the fact that you can import all your old photos, not just the ones shot in portrait mode and create works of art. The app detects true depth with incredible accuracy. Love it!
I like it
by ador82 on 2019/11/29 03:41
This app is good for beginners and you can purchase pro version. I haven’t quite figured out the different lens feature yet- how are they different? When I switch lenses the picture stays the same so this may be a useless feature. Also I can’t find shutter speed within the app. But without those 2 components- the rest is great for iphone XS
Great

MAGNIFICENT 👏🏼
by MayBaePrincess on 2019/11/26 03:40
Right off the bat I can say I’m really enjoying this app. In a very long search of an app that has amazing quality blurring background effects I have come across many that just didn’t fulfill what I wanted until I came across this one. Not only do they have gorgeous effects, they have many options for everyone who is looking for a blurring background editing app that gives a truly professional appearance. Very easy to use as well. My photos look amazing and high definition which is why I love it so much! Just like most you’ll get the best effects with the pro version but I must say “ TOTALLY WORTH IT!!” You will not be disappointed that I can guarantee!
Excellent

Best camera app.
by Skeedy on 2019/11/23 22:09
The new update they came out with made everything simple and fun. What you can do with the pictures after you take them is amazing! Would recommend this app to beginners and seasoned photographers alike.
Don’t think. Download.
by hipp18 on 2019/11/23 20:56
I discovered this app because the portrait mode on my iPhone 10s only works for faces (and who doesn’t want an artsy hyper-focused photo of their backside or their plate of food?!). So I was on the hunt for something that wouldn’t take a lot of effort, but could be adjusted to preference and would turn out quality photos. This. Is. It. My friend who is a graphic designer and teaches iPhone photography courses swears by it ever since I shared it with him. I KNOW I don’t use all the features it’s capable of, but I use the bare minimum and feel like a pro.
Amazing
by Henryprospector on 2019/11/22 05:34

Uhm, wow?

Amazing
by Oz1000000 on 2019/11/21 16:16
Almost certainly going to get the Pro in app purchase. There is plenty in the free version, so don’t be pushed away because it does have a pro, but it is probably the mort interesting photo app I’ve seen in the whole App Store! A must have!
Focus makes my pictures look beautiful

Using the picture
by maustin4g on 2019/11/18 16:43
I can’t upload my edited picture to my photo album on my phone. According to the app my picture is saved ( I’m assuming the changes are as well) but I when attempt to use my picture outside of the app the changes haven’t been applied.

A app that works well. Better than portrait
by Golfing_Fool on 2019/11/11 20:45
I decided to give this a go after the good reviews. I was impressed. It does an excellent job of simulation of a shallow DOF. I will be using this one a lot for that final touch.

Most useful post production app for iPhone but I see there is a new subscription model?!
by imtobisonbrown on 2019/11/07 23:37
I’ve paid an ungodly amount of money for photo manipulation apps over the years. Year after year I find myself editing more things in the photos app and not needing 3rd party. I paid for focos with my first portrait iPhone and forgot about it. Well I’m back and I love what this app can do that photos can not. Depth control and lighting control with an easy to use interface and a ton of lens presets from lenses I know and have wanted to emulate. Wow. Just wow. But wait. Missed the 5 star because I see there is a subscription model? Thanks for letting my purchase work, but it’s hard out there in the streets with all the stupid subscriptions.
95% of features are paywalled.
by forever.nocturnal on 2019/11/07 17:13
If you’re looking for something that can tweak or fine tune portrait blur and has filters, this app will do the trick. But it’s not the best I’ve used by far and it’s kind of a one trick pony. I will say it got 2 stars for how well it can take a photo that’s not shot in portrait mode and concert it to one. Does a fine job from what I’ve seen too. But the pay to play features are expensive AF. Maybe a full version for a week/month would be a better business model.
Really impressed!

Taking iPhone Photography to the Future
by RedScoot42 on 2019/11/07 16:39
It is a pretty rare thing for me to take time out of my day to provide a written review of any of my many purchased iPhone apps. Rarer still are the apps that I am willing to pay more than $5.00 for…gosh I remember the days when a pricey app topped out at $1.50, and they were pretty high end stuff for their day. Focos, for me, is that unique gem of an app that deserves some well-deserved praise! I initially heard about the app through one of the many review sites as I was searching for photography apps that could highlight the power of my new iPhone 11 Pro. After a day of playing around with just the selectable focal plane feature in Focos, I happy took advantage of the In-App purchase option which took this app from amazing to absolutely incredible (your mind will be blown with the AR features)! Being a professional photographer, I am always viewing the world in a series of potential captured images. I either have a DLSR or my iPhone in my hand at all times throughout the day. As I explore Focos and delve deeper into the incredible image manipulation capabilities of this application, it could be that my DSLR may have to take back stage for a while. I have already recommended this app to several of my photographer friends, and it only takes a couple of quick demonstrations to show off the unique and powerful toolset that Focos provides to both the casual and professional photographer! Well done, highly recommended and 5 stars to the developers!!

Great app, but crashes a lot
by bryanbuff on 2019/11/06 15:47
Portrait Mode on the iPhone is great, but not always perfect. This app allows me to correct the things Portrait Mode didn’t do right. However, I’ve noticed a lot of crashing and I’m working on the newest iPhone Pro and iPad Pro (3rd Gen). I also wish it was a bit more intuitive. I struggle sometimes with what certain things do. The brush should add blur and the eraser should take it away, but in edit mode it doesn’t show what’s blurred and what’s not. I have to guess.
Subscription scam
by Snuffy the dog on 2019/11/05 13:41
I bought lifetime access for 2 devices at $10 each 2 years ago about a year ago it did not transfer to the newer version. I was told they ‘changed the subscription model’. So much about ‘lifetime’ access. Nice product but I would not support this company

This app has been very useful. Especially when converting non portrait mode photos. It does a great job and I have been very satisfied with the results.
Simply Amazing !!
by DenBillups on 2019/11/03 19:27
This is an incredible photography app! The best one hands down! This developer should make a video version for cinematography! That would be epic! PLEASE consider this idea!!
Best “portrait” editor
by Doc.Saif on 2019/11/03 19:14
This app is by far the best editor I’ve come across. Love how it smoothly processes the image. I use an iPhone 7 and to be honest after using this app I feel like I don’t need dual cameras anymore 😅 Huuuugee thumbs up for the developers
Great app

Great app
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2019/11/02 14:01
Decided to update my original review, which was also very positive. Awesome app. Absolutely my favorite iPhone app. Being able to paint in the effect is a huge benefit to me. Became even better when it was updated to work with images that weren’t taken in portrait mode. Now I can load images from my mirrorless camera onto my phone and enhance background separation. Just outstanding. I do wish it could work with and save images in original resolution, as I lose a lot from my 26 MP camera. Keep up the great work. This app has been a great value for me and I am so glad I bought it. Thank you so much for creating it.
Great app

by B&W rules on 2019/11/01 19:39
I have several camera apps and was always a bit frustrated with the depth of field controls. Within minutes I was using this app and making appropriate adjustments. The included tutorial is well thought out. This is in my opinion one of the best photo apps out there. Cannot wait to dive into it in more depth (pun intended).
Mind Blowing App
by 123CarGuy123 on 2019/11/01 13:52
This app allows you to change the focal point from any picture. Works better on iPhone pictures. Spend the extra few $$ and unlock the app. It adds a lot of worthwhile features. The iPad version of FOCOS is really easy to use!
Works great

by GeeH.S. on 2019/10/31 02:32
I have absolutely no idea how to use this app. It is Extremely difficult. And the tutorial does not help me at all. I thought the camera came with it and it was missing AFTER I purchased this app for the $12. I was told it caused problems so developer deleted it. I can’t use this. It is way too hard for me. I wasted my money.

Some sort of witch craft!
by jakeacc on 2019/10/29 15:26
I got this app a while ago when I got an iPhone X. Mainly wanted to customize the bokeh of my portrait mode pics. But wasn’t super impressed so stopped using it. I just started using it again when I heard there was a way to add shallow depth of field to any photograph. The feature works amazing. I would say 95% of the time, it creates a very convincing depth of field blur, finding foreground, mid-frowns, and background elements and blurring them appropriately. I’ve been applying this effect to photos I’ve taken over the past 20 years. I currently have an iPhone 11 Pro and getting a native Portrait mode pix is still my fav option, but sometimes I don’t have enough space wherever I’m standing to get the portrait mode to activate. This app is able to turn those pics to great portrait mode pics. If they figured out a way to add this to videos, that would be amazing.
Question...

Does a good job but options are confusing
by eggandwaffle on 2019/10/29 01:45
This app does a very good job of mimicking some lenses, but has a confusing range of options. It’s hard to tell the difference between many settings. Also, I was hoping this app would all allow for true depth simulation with both items in the extreme foreground and far background blurred, it handles background blurring nicely, but has problems with items in the foreground (often the blur looks like bad photoshop). Still under most portrait circumstances, the results are decent.
Seriously you won’t regret buying it.
by TheSouthernDuck on 2019/10/28 13:14
I really hesitated to buy this app for a while and I didn’t buy a iPhone X Max I got the cheaper version the XR. This app is amazing for people like me that wish they could go back and get the other phone to use the portrait mode. I love the creators so much! Thank you for an amazing app!
Great app

Doesn’t support RAW photo edit
by xja7kexx on 2019/10/27 19:39
This app doesn’t support RAW photo edit. Too many features only will work if you pay $13 life time access. There’s no such a trial.

by Jax and team on 2019/10/27 05:22
I took a screenshot of the supposed 1x payment/per year for the “pro” version after I paid for it. They better not update it and make me pay more. 5 stars may be a temporary rating, we’ll see, I am deleting Photoshop express for this.
The best photo editing app.

Amazing app
by Snaprebelx on 2019/09/04 23:39
I got to try out the app before I even got a dual lens phone and loved it. So it was my first download when I got my phone. I absolutely loved the app. But the downside for me was the lag taking a pic with portrait mode vs a regular picture (this is due to the phone, not focos) I love taking spur of the moment photos and couldn’t always use portrait mode. When I opened the app today to edit a picture and saw the new update that made it possible to use on all pics I excitedly tried a regular photo and it was absolutely perfect. I’m so thrilled that I just had to review. I have no real need for pro version but I think I’m going to buy it anyway just to support the developer. This is a must have app for photo lovers, hands down!!!
Good, not great
by Shaloha91 on 2019/12/04 20:52
This app is amazing...in theory. In practice however this app needs to improve its core algorithm and it’s fine-tuning abilities. The app always seems to miss some spots in the image thinking they are closer than they are. And not blurring them as a result. The current tools available for correcting it simply don’t work well (and I’ve tried every possible way). There needs to be some way not to control where blur is applied with a brush, but to also allow the user to correct the 3D map and tell the app that certain areas are actually farther away than the app thinks. I’m really hoping the engineers working on this app are continuing to invest in the actual blur algorithm rather than on vanity things like UI and blur styles. It still needs more work doing the core of what it is supposed to to: effectively and accurately blur areas that are actually farther away, in such a way that looks natural and realistic.
I’m having fun but I can’t find my saved images.
by henofthewoo on 2019/09/04 21:15
I’m using this free, and I enjoy the tools. There are lots of functions I can’t reach without paying-I may subscribe eventually. It’s not completely intuitive, I think some of the tools are just over my head. I would like to be able to save an image that I edited to my photo stream when I hit save, that hasn’t seemed to work. I don’t normally review stuff because I want to play with it for a while before I give an opinion but this is certainly worth downloading and trying out. The 3D effects are great and I like switching the focal points in my photos. Update: I can do things to the image that I want to save. I haven’t found how to make that save happen. Yes, all images that are saved go to my photo album but I can’t save while it is doing bokeh.
MAGNIFICENT 👏🏼
by MayBaePrincess on 2019/11/26 03:40
Right off the bat I can say I’m really enjoying this app. In a very long search of an app that has amazing quality blurring background effects I have come across many that just didn’t fulfill what I wanted until I came across this one. Not only do they have gorgeous effects, they have many options for everyone who is looking for a blurring background editing app that gives a truly professional appearance. Very easy to use as well. My photos look amazing and high definition which is why I love it so much! Just like most you’ll get the best effects with the pro version but I must say “ TOTALLY WORTH IT!!” You will not be disappointed that I can guarantee!
This app re-writes how to edit apps
by Allen Lieberman on 2019/08/30 17:44
Bought the full edition for 12 bucks and it is the BEST 12 bucks I ever spent. There is a very large learning curve so you need to be patient. It isn’t for beginners neither, it is for those that want to really get into video editing in a 3D dimension. For 2D dimension, stick with photoshop express. My only complaint for lack of better term is using the various lenses for effects. It’s very difficult to find the effect when applying the lens filter as it is extremely subtle changes. I am sure it is user induced as I am only 24 hours into using this app.
Most useful post production app for iPhone but I see there is a new subscription model?!
by imtobisonbrown on 2019/11/07 23:37
I’ve paid an ungodly amount of money for photo manipulation apps over the years. Year after year I find myself editing more things in the photos app and not needing 3rd party. I paid for focos with my first portrait iPhone and forgot about it. Well I’m back and I love what this app can do that photos can not. Depth control and lighting control with an easy to use interface and a ton of lens presets from lenses I know and have wanted to emulate. Wow. Just wow. But wait. Missed the 5 star because I see there is a subscription model? Thanks for letting my purchase work, but it’s hard out there in the streets with all the stupid subscriptions.
Favorite photography app for the iPhone
by Slimshenky23 on 2019/10/19 18:20
If you want more control of your portrait mode pics (or even the ability to mimic portrait mode with your standard images), this app is for you! My three favorite features: being able to refocus the portrait mode images to any subject, the magic wand to fine tune the blur in front and behind the subject, and the AR view while adding additional light in an image (which also happens to digitally create accurate shadows as well)... With practice, your photos will look more professional!
So much control
by Jesusx1 on 2019/08/28 20:37
Usually taking a portrait picture means choosing between either capturing the perfect moment, or having it look nice. But this app allows you to focus on the moment and then once you’re ready, go back and touch up mistakes that your iPhone made when it tried to guess what was the background and what your subject actually was. This is all the control your phone should have but is completely lacking. Thanks Devs!
Absolutely incredible!
by Mr. Plane on 2019/09/20 01:10
The new update is remarkable. I do have a dual lens camera, but being able to get depth data out of non-portrait photos is insane. Amazing app, super helpful developer too! A few months ago I asked about an issue and got a response promising it to be fixed in the next update, along with a feature I requested. And it happened! Great person, awesome app and overall a must have tool for phone photography.
INCREDIBLE
by Joey123.s on 2019/09/24 01:23
I’ve been using this app for almost a year now. Me being able to adjust depth, change where the depth is in the photo, allowing me to add effects etc. Every single one of those features are amazing. It was a 5 star. Now with the added feature of taking any picture and being able to add bokeh is a 10 star rating. Incredible work you all are doing. Lifetime membership is even better!
Revolutionary mobile technology, wow!
by Ericmst18 on 2019/08/30 18:02
This new update is amazing, I have the iPhone 8 Plus and although portrait mode and everything is built into the phone the selfie portrait mode isn’t available on my phone, this app allows that feature to come alive, and any other photo it allows me to change the depth of field regardless if it was on portrait mode. This is a game changer and it looks so accurate! Must have!
Revolutionary app
by EdwardKhoma on 2019/08/28 20:11
This is by far the most revolutionary photography app for the iPhone. The developer of Focus is very passionate about pushing the boundaries of iPhone photography at it shows. Version 2.0 is SUCH a powerful update, bringing portrait mode to non-portrait photos. Let that sink in... any normal photo you take can now be enhanced with this app to add depth of field and elevate your photos to the next level. Kudos to the developer, I cannot wait to see how Focus grows.
A #shotoniphone game-changer
by Taylor.Lynn on 2019/10/05 22:14
The things you can do with this app 🙌. Portrait mode is great and all, but it still doesn’t give you that wide open look you get with a larger sensor. This app really gives you so much control over how your depth of field looks. Honestly I can’t tell the difference between some of my iPhone and actual camera shots now (without pixel peeping of course). The yearly pro price was very reasonable as well.
Does a good job but options are confusing
by eggandwaffle on 2019/10/29 01:45
This app does a very good job of mimicking some lenses, but has a confusing range of options. It’s hard to tell the difference between many settings. Also, I was hoping this app would all allow for true depth simulation with both items in the extreme foreground and far background blurred, it handles background blurring nicely, but has problems with items in the foreground (often the blur looks like bad photoshop). Still under most portrait circumstances, the results are decent.
PROFESSIONAL
by yadira.lgzp on 2019/10/03 12:52
I never write reviews for apps but this is necessary at this point. I just started using this app and it’s exactly what I was looking for. I don’t want to scribble out where I want the blur to go. That’s time consuming and looks tacky. But this app just does it it seconds! I want to thank the makers of this app because this seriously made my life so much easier and my pictures look so PROFESSIONAL! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
❤️10 Stars for Focos!❤️
by BAR112 on 2019/09/01 02:56
App was already amazing for tweaking our portrait-mode photos taken with newer iPhones. With today’s update, we can turn ANY photo into amazing portrait-style with bokeh background. Just brush on the places you want to stand out and it automatically blurs the background, plus provides many other options such as lighting, aperature, shapes, etc. Highly recommend it; just purchase Focos Pro—it’s the best of its class!
The best iOS camera app out there
by JoeofCanada on 2019/09/26 01:21
Better than the stock camera app. Especially well with low light photos where the stock camera would have trouble making out finer details in a darker environment. Practically turns my iPhone 7 camera into a 7 Plus camera (without the dual camera features). AIA there's absolutely no reason not to use this app. Wish I could rate 5.5 stars
Amazing
by @nolimit.josh2x on 2019/09/09 19:32
Absolutely amazing. From my time using it , I haven’t encountered many ads , if any at all! It helps so much with portrait pictures , making them much more in depth or much less depth. And even if need help with a picture that wasn’t taken in portrait mode , this app now automatically renders pictures that aren’t in portrait mode. So you can edit any picture!!
Wow! Really pleasantly surprised
by Rater1234 on 2019/10/26 00:10
Depth of field adjustment works perfectly on existing images without having to convert / retake them and even though I used the normal photo settings... I have an XR which can’t do bokeh on anything except human faces but this app fixes that! Quality for the bokeh is awesome too. I haven’t explored all the features yet but just got this one feature it’s a must-have!
Best.. portrait app on the play store!
by xonlytyrek on 2019/10/02 20:28
Look. I don’t even write reviews on anything but this is just AMAZING 🙅🏾‍♂️😂 especially US older iPhone users that don’t have the portrait mode! I have a iPhone 6! And now I can take pictures that look like I have iPhone 10 professional pictures just amazing I’ve tried SO many other apps ain’t nothing topping this.😂
Great app, but crashes a lot
by bryanbuff on 2019/11/06 15:47
Portrait Mode on the iPhone is great, but not always perfect. This app allows me to correct the things Portrait Mode didn’t do right. However, I’ve noticed a lot of crashing and I’m working on the newest iPhone Pro and iPad Pro (3rd Gen). I also wish it was a bit more intuitive. I struggle sometimes with what certain things do. The brush should add blur and the eraser should take it away, but in edit mode it doesn’t show what’s blurred and what’s not. I have to guess.
Phenomenal
by B&W rules on 2019/11/01 19:39
I have several camera apps and was always a bit frustrated with the depth of field controls. Within minutes I was using this app and making appropriate adjustments. The included tutorial is well thought out. This is in my opinion one of the best photo apps out there. Cannot wait to dive into it in more depth (pun intended).
Version 2.0 Is Amazing!
by KeithShepard on 2019/09/08 00:30
This was already a great app, but the recent 2.0 release is flat out amazing. Love the fact that it can generate depth of field data from single camera iPhones and iPads. Portrait mode on my XS Max has never looked better than with Focos 2.0. Awesome job by the app developer. This is a fantastic camera app that is worth every penny. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5.
One of the best!
by Jazzpr on 2019/09/30 23:46
This app is amazing! Its a must have app for the everyday photographers, who wants to take studio portrait photos but don’t want to carry a big DSLR. The Lifetime unlimited access is a plus to complete the app and gain access to an endless possibilities in photo editing. This application has features that makes you forget the stock camera app. Great job!!
I love this app
by Karim.M.rihan on 2019/12/04 04:38
One of my tops favorites photography apps But it would be amazing if live taking photo’s grid\ratio to have 2.66:1. And. 2.76:1. And don’t have to go to crop mode to crop it I also suggest to add (capture outside frame) feature as i can take photos in whatever ratio I choose but still can reverse it back anytime layer in editing if i like
95% of features are paywalled.
by forever.nocturnal on 2019/11/07 17:13
If you’re looking for something that can tweak or fine tune portrait blur and has filters, this app will do the trick. But it’s not the best I’ve used by far and it’s kind of a one trick pony. I will say it got 2 stars for how well it can take a photo that’s not shot in portrait mode and concert it to one. Does a fine job from what I’ve seen too. But the pay to play features are expensive AF. Maybe a full version for a week/month would be a better business model.
Great app
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2019/11/02 14:01
Decided to update my original review, which was also very positive. Awesome app. Absolutely my favorite iPhone app. Being able to paint in the effect is a huge benefit to me. Became even better when it was updated to work with images that weren’t taken in portrait mode. Now I can load images from my mirrorless camera onto my phone and enhance background separation. Just outstanding. I do wish it could work with and save images in original resolution, as I lose a lot from my 26 MP camera. Keep up the great work. This app has been a great value for me and I am so glad I bought it. Thank you so much for creating it.
Best
by Sydney Jezik on 2019/10/10 04:08
Literally the best app. I’m not even a bot. This app is amazing at photo editing. It can blur beautifully and make a photo look better than portrait mode and it does it automatically, without me having to draw all over the background to “select” it or anything. And its lighting effects are astounding. Seriously, give it a shot.
Best app out there
by himekaji on 2019/09/10 21:02
I love the new update oh my gosh it makes it so you can use any photo on my phone and it’s amazing . I love that even though I have an older phone it lets me take or even correct the blur of many photos even if it’s not taken with this phone . I love that customization and will use it for a very long time.
Amazing !!
by Vamazin1011 on 2019/10/20 16:43
I have the iPhone 11 so every time I take a picture it adds on like this orangey tone instead of the natural lighting.. when I used this app it was perfect the background and lighting was exact. No vibrancy effect , just perfect lighting! I’ve downloaded so many apps , finally found the right one 😩
Most important app for a mobile photographer
by Jarvis 05756 on 2019/09/29 02:38
This app has become a staple in my workflow when I’m using my phone. The free version offers plenty of features. I’d love the full version but I think I’d be much more willing to pay something like 4.99 or 5.99 for it. Luckily they are quite generous with the free version.
Seriously you won’t regret buying it.
by TheSouthernDuck on 2019/10/28 13:14
I really hesitated to buy this app for a while and I didn’t buy a iPhone X Max I got the cheaper version the XR. This app is amazing for people like me that wish they could go back and get the other phone to use the portrait mode. I love the creators so much! Thank you for an amazing app!
I like it
by ador82 on 2019/11/29 03:41
This app is good for beginners and you can purchase pro version. I haven’t quite figured out the different lens feature yet- how are they different? When I switch lenses the picture stays the same so this may be a useless feature. Also I can’t find shutter speed within the app. But without those 2 components- the rest is great for iphone XS
Wow!
by Some guy in Seattle on 2019/10/13 15:18
I push the limits of post-processing on iPhones (to both see what’s possible and fix poorly-taken pictures!) and I’ve never seen anything like this app. Not for the casual photographer - but if you want to change the apparent depth of field, lighting, etc. *after the fact* this app is astounding.
This app is amazing.
by Mmmnr on 2019/09/21 18:43
I use an iPhone 8 without portrait mode yet with this app I can take portrait photos and I can work with older photos to create the same effect. Good with the free version, great with the in app upgrade. I have never been totally satisfied with my iPhone photos. This app makes all the difference.
I hope they don’t pull a fast one
by Jax and team on 2019/10/27 05:22
I took a screenshot of the supposed 1x payment/per year for the “pro” version after I paid for it. They better not update it and make me pay more. 5 stars may be a temporary rating, we’ll see, I am deleting Photoshop express for this.
Portraits on single lense camera!!!!!
by Twistashio on 2019/10/06 14:34
I don’t know how they did it but I can use my iPhone 6s to now take portraits! Before the app would not allow you to take them with older devices. Now using A.I you can take full on portraits with your older iPhones. Now all this need is a night mode and I will finally give this app 5 stars but it’s totally worth the download!
Small issue
by Jub9000 on 2019/09/12 19:38
This is a great app but I have one issue: The yellow thumbnail triangle is very useful to show what photos I e already affected but it shows up on the thumbnail of a photo I adjusted but did not save. I cannot find a way to remove this triangle. If I missed it, then the solution is not intuitive.
Nice Effect
by drnielsen on 2019/10/18 17:43
Until I started using this app, I didn’t really appreciate how much depth of field really can be used to enhance a photo. With all of today’s digital photography, we often capture “too much.” This really helps to zero in on your main subject. Well worth the money.
Mind Blowing App
by 123CarGuy123 on 2019/11/01 13:52
This app allows you to change the focal point from any picture. Works better on iPhone pictures. Spend the extra few $$ and unlock the app. It adds a lot of worthwhile features. The iPad version of FOCOS is really easy to use!
Simply fantastic!!!
by Ehab Kashkash on 2019/10/30 02:39
This is one of the best applications I have ever purchased and is definitely worth every penny. I’m not a professional photographer but this application has made me one. I love the amazing control over every aspect on the photo and how great the results are. Well done!
Gets rid of portrait lighting effects...
by Captainsbandana on 2019/09/25 09:56
Absolutely the best bokeh app on the App Store... it has a massive array of options and computational features that are genuinely impressive. I just wish I could have iOS Portrait Mode's natural grain... the images in Focos are too smooth, and the grain you can add is too colorful. Looking forward to the video version of Focos!
Absolutely amazing app that creates beautiful bokeh
by Tex Teton Guy on 2019/09/18 20:06
I read a review of this free app and was skeptical - but since it is free, I thought I would give it a try. I was blown away on how well it works on photos that have been taken years ago. Very impressive. Highly recommended!
Don’t think. Download.
by hipp18 on 2019/11/23 20:56
I discovered this app because the portrait mode on my iPhone 10s only works for faces (and who doesn’t want an artsy hyper-focused photo of their backside or their plate of food?!). So I was on the hunt for something that wouldn’t take a lot of effort, but could be adjusted to preference and would turn out quality photos. This. Is. It. My friend who is a graphic designer and teaches iPhone photography courses swears by it ever since I shared it with him. I KNOW I don’t use all the features it’s capable of, but I use the bare minimum and feel like a pro.
Amazing
by Oz1000000 on 2019/11/21 16:16
Almost certainly going to get the Pro in app purchase. There is plenty in the free version, so don’t be pushed away because it does have a pro, but it is probably the mort interesting photo app I’ve seen in the whole App Store! A must have!
Focus makes my pictures look beautiful
by MissyK68 on 2019/11/20 01:34
I am always pleasantly surprised when I use Focus, instead of the iPhone Camera app, because my pictures just always look better! I enjoy using this app!!
One of the best photo apps I’ve ever used!
by Cakerlips on 2019/10/25 21:50
It is a super simple platform app that is absolutely quick and easy to use! The depth calculation and the bokeh effect is just marvelous! I definitely recommend using this app even over normal phone portrait mode!
Trying to find capability
by Larrysfunpics on 2019/09/28 21:03
I feel it would be advantageous to you to allow us to use the locked functions even if you placed a big watermark on the image. I am trying to figure out what the SW is capable of and finding it a challenge. There’s things I still need to figure out.

Good, not great
by Shaloha91 on 2019/12/04 20:52
This app is amazing...in theory. In practice however this app needs to improve its core algorithm and it’s fine-tuning abilities. The app always seems to miss some spots in the image thinking they are closer than they are. And not blurring them as a result. The current tools available for correcting it simply don’t work well (and I’ve tried every possible way). There needs to be some way not to control where blur is applied with a brush, but to also allow the user to correct the 3D map and tell the app that certain areas are actually farther away than the app thinks. I’m really hoping the engineers working on this app are continuing to invest in the actual blur algorithm rather than on vanity things like UI and blur styles. It still needs more work doing the core of what it is supposed to to: effectively and accurately blur areas that are actually farther away, in such a way that looks natural and realistic.
Incredible

Blurs out my messy backgrounds!
by SanderinaD on 2019/12/04 01:31
I use this for blurring out backgrounds. Works great for that. I haven’t quite figured out the other features. The other features could be more intuitive and easier to figure out. But anyway I really haven’t had time/desire to figure out the other tools. It is a quick easy way to clean up distracting backgrounds. Uses aperture numbers which teaches non photographers about depth of field in a fun easy way. Check it out! Note : I am a boomer don’t be hating on me☮️
Manual focus?
by J@yjayYjAy on 2019/12/04 00:41
This apps amazing. But... could you add a manual focus function? (One that is like a sliding bar)
Love this app.
by Lehan0525 on 2019/12/03 16:30
I can’t believe I had this app on my phone and never tried it. Now that I now how awesome this app is this is the only app I’ll use for all my photos. The lenses are amazing!

You can edit photos from both your iPhone and DSLR! It’s so worth it!
Great App. Add photos extension compatibility?
by mgilbuena on 2019/11/30 17:38
This is a great app. I’ve been using the ability to add bokeh to retroactively create portrait mode photos from older pictures. It would be great if this app were officially compatible with “photos extensions”. That would allow us to open any photo from within photos.app, and choose edit with Focos. This would retain the modifications as an edit to the photo, instead of creating a duplicate. Any plans to make a Mac app? I would love to use this on my desktop as well.
Best bokeh for Xr

by Boss435 on 2019/11/30 04:45
Man this app is insanely cool. I love the fact that you can import all your old photos, not just the ones shot in portrait mode and create works of art. The app detects true depth with incredible accuracy. Love it!

by MayBaePrincess on 2019/11/26 03:40
Right off the bat I can say I’m really enjoying this app. In a very long search of an app that has amazing quality blurring background effects I have come across many that just didn’t fulfill what I wanted until I came across this one. Not only do they have gorgeous effects, they have many options for everyone who is looking for a blurring background editing app that gives a truly professional appearance. Very easy to use as well. My photos look amazing and high definition which is why I love it so much! Just like most you’ll get the best effects with the pro version but I must say “ TOTALLY WORTH IT!!” You will not be disappointed that I can guarantee!

Not good

I had a very hard time editing and once I had finished editing , I couldn’t download the pictures in less I paid money .
Best camera app.
by Skeedy on 2019/11/23 22:09
The new update they came out with made everything simple and fun. What you can do with the pictures after you take them is amazing! Would recommend this app to beginners and seasoned photographers alike.
Don’t think. Download.
by hipp18 on 2019/11/23 20:56
I discovered this app because the portrait mode on my iPhone 10s only works for faces (and who doesn’t want an artsy hyper-focused photo of their backside or their plate of food?!). So I was on the hunt for something that wouldn’t take a lot of effort, but could be adjusted to preference and would turn out quality photos. This. Is. It. My friend who is a graphic designer and teaches iPhone photography courses swears by it ever since I shared it with him. I KNOW I don’t use all the features it’s capable of, but I use the bare minimum and feel like a pro.
Amazing
by Henryprospector on 2019/11/22 05:34
Pro quality!
Uhm, wow?
by villainessxx on 2019/11/22 01:05
Love this app forever 🖤 Need to dedicate some time and tapping around to learn it, but if you do - you’ll be rewarded.
Amazing
by Oz1000000 on 2019/11/21 16:16
Almost certainly going to get the Pro in app purchase. There is plenty in the free version, so don’t be pushed away because it does have a pro, but it is probably the mort interesting photo app I’ve seen in the whole App Store! A must have!
Focus makes my pictures look beautiful
by MissyK68 on 2019/11/20 01:34
I am always pleasantly surprised when I use Focus, instead of the iPhone Camera app, because my pictures just always look better! I enjoy using this app!!
No me gusta qué cobran por el pro

Using the picture
by maustin4g on 2019/11/18 16:43
I can’t upload my edited picture to my photo album on my phone. According to the app my picture is saved ( I’m assuming the changes are as well) but I when attempt to use my picture outside of the app the changes haven’t been applied.
Good🥶

A app that works well. Better than portrait
by Golfing_Fool on 2019/11/11 20:45
I decided to give this a go after the good reviews. I was impressed. It does an excellent job of simulation of a shallow DOF. I will be using this one a lot for that final touch.
Best app

Great aperture feature

The aperture adjustment ability is awesome. It turns my iPhone X into professional DLR. I love the feature that you can adjust the focus and aperture after taking the phone. Highly recommended.

Most useful post production app for iPhone but I see there is a new subscription model?!
by imtobisonbrown on 2019/11/07 23:37
I’ve paid an ungodly amount of money for photo manipulation apps over the years. Year after year I find myself editing more things in the photos app and not needing 3rd party. I paid for focos with my first portrait iPhone and forgot about it. Well I’m back and I love what this app can do that photos can not. Depth control and lighting control with an easy to use interface and a ton of lens presets from lenses I know and have wanted to emulate. Wow. Just wow. But wait. Missed the 5 star because I see there is a subscription model? Thanks for letting my purchase work, but it’s hard out there in the streets with all the stupid subscriptions.
95% of features are paywalled.
by forever.nocturnal on 2019/11/07 17:13
If you’re looking for something that can tweak or fine tune portrait blur and has filters, this app will do the trick. But it’s not the best I’ve used by far and it’s kind of a one trick pony. I will say it got 2 stars for how well it can take a photo that’s not shot in portrait mode and concert it to one. Does a fine job from what I’ve seen too. But the pay to play features are expensive AF. Maybe a full version for a week/month would be a better business model.
Really impressed!

Taking iPhone Photography to the Future
by RedScoot42 on 2019/11/07 16:39
It is a pretty rare thing for me to take time out of my day to provide a written review of any of my many purchased iPhone apps. Rarer still are the apps that I am willing to pay more than $5.00 for…gosh I remember the days when a pricey app topped out at $1.50, and they were pretty high end stuff for their day. Focos, for me, is that unique gem of an app that deserves some well-deserved praise! I initially heard about the app through one of the many review sites as I was searching for photography apps that could highlight the power of my new iPhone 11 Pro. After a day of playing around with just the selectable focal plane feature in Focos, I happy took advantage of the In-App purchase option which took this app from amazing to absolutely incredible (your mind will be blown with the AR features)! Being a professional photographer, I am always viewing the world in a series of potential captured images. I either have a DLSR or my iPhone in my hand at all times throughout the day. As I explore Focos and delve deeper into the incredible image manipulation capabilities of this application, it could be that my DSLR may have to take back stage for a while. I have already recommended this app to several of my photographer friends, and it only takes a couple of quick demonstrations to show off the unique and powerful toolset that Focos provides to both the casual and professional photographer! Well done, highly recommended and 5 stars to the developers!!

Great app, but crashes a lot
by bryanbuff on 2019/11/06 15:47
Portrait Mode on the iPhone is great, but not always perfect. This app allows me to correct the things Portrait Mode didn’t do right. However, I’ve noticed a lot of crashing and I’m working on the newest iPhone Pro and iPad Pro (3rd Gen). I also wish it was a bit more intuitive. I struggle sometimes with what certain things do. The brush should add blur and the eraser should take it away, but in edit mode it doesn’t show what’s blurred and what’s not. I have to guess.
Subscription scam
by Snuffy the dog on 2019/11/05 13:41
I bought lifetime access for 2 devices at $10 each 2 years ago about a year ago it did not transfer to the newer version. I was told they ‘changed the subscription model’. So much about ‘lifetime’ access. Nice product but I would not support this company

by hahaiamagod on 2019/11/03 23:29
Some of the things are super confusing and someof them are really easy but hard to use and I think you should make it easier to use
Great app!

This app has been very useful. Especially when converting non portrait mode photos. It does a great job and I have been very satisfied with the results.
Simply Amazing !!
by DenBillups on 2019/11/03 19:27
This is an incredible photography app! The best one hands down! This developer should make a video version for cinematography! That would be epic! PLEASE consider this idea!!
Best “portrait” editor
by Doc.Saif on 2019/11/03 19:14
This app is by far the best editor I’ve come across. Love how it smoothly processes the image. I use an iPhone 7 and to be honest after using this app I feel like I don’t need dual cameras anymore 😅 Huuuugee thumbs up for the developers
Great app
by unpandon on 2019/11/02 19:24
Love the app but there’s this bug where it doesn’t save the depth adjustment

Absolutely loving this 😘
Great app
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2019/11/02 14:01
Decided to update my original review, which was also very positive. Awesome app. Absolutely my favorite iPhone app. Being able to paint in the effect is a huge benefit to me. Became even better when it was updated to work with images that weren’t taken in portrait mode. Now I can load images from my mirrorless camera onto my phone and enhance background separation. Just outstanding. I do wish it could work with and save images in original resolution, as I lose a lot from my 26 MP camera. Keep up the great work. This app has been a great value for me and I am so glad I bought it. Thank you so much for creating it.
Great app
by Khunsith on 2019/11/02 02:02
I recommend this app, it is very smart in depth of field calculation, we don’t need expensive Len.
Good quality and Focos

Totally control your post processing.
Phenomenal
by B&W rules on 2019/11/01 19:39
I have several camera apps and was always a bit frustrated with the depth of field controls. Within minutes I was using this app and making appropriate adjustments. The included tutorial is well thought out. This is in my opinion one of the best photo apps out there. Cannot wait to dive into it in more depth (pun intended).
Mind Blowing App
by 123CarGuy123 on 2019/11/01 13:52
This app allows you to change the focal point from any picture. Works better on iPhone pictures. Spend the extra few $$ and unlock the app. It adds a lot of worthwhile features. The iPad version of FOCOS is really easy to use!
Works great
by nshskxjch on 2019/11/01 13:23
Love this app, it actually blurs out the background of your pics! Very easy to use as well - definitely recommend
Bokeh is outstanding!

FOCOS
by GeeH.S. on 2019/10/31 02:32
I have absolutely no idea how to use this app. It is Extremely difficult. And the tutorial does not help me at all. I thought the camera came with it and it was missing AFTER I purchased this app for the $12. I was told it caused problems so developer deleted it. I can’t use this. It is way too hard for me. I wasted my money.
Very useful and nice

Very user friendly
Some sort of witch craft!
by jakeacc on 2019/10/29 15:26
I got this app a while ago when I got an iPhone X. Mainly wanted to customize the bokeh of my portrait mode pics. But wasn’t super impressed so stopped using it. I just started using it again when I heard there was a way to add shallow depth of field to any photograph. The feature works amazing. I would say 95% of the time, it creates a very convincing depth of field blur, finding foreground, mid-frowns, and background elements and blurring them appropriately. I’ve been applying this effect to photos I’ve taken over the past 20 years. I currently have an iPhone 11 Pro and getting a native Portrait mode pix is still my fav option, but sometimes I don’t have enough space wherever I’m standing to get the portrait mode to activate. This app is able to turn those pics to great portrait mode pics. If they figured out a way to add this to videos, that would be amazing.
Question...

Is there a version of the software for Mac?

by Dorian CB on 2019/10/29 02:26

Does a good job but options are confusing
by eggandwaffle on 2019/10/29 01:45
This app does a very good job of mimicking some lenses, but has a confusing range of options. It’s hard to tell the difference between many settings. Also, I was hoping this app would all allow for true depth simulation with both items in the extreme foreground and far background blurred, it handles background blurring nicely, but has problems with items in the foreground (often the blur looks like bad photoshop). Still under most portrait circumstances, the results are decent.
Seriously you won’t regret buying it.
by TheSouthernDuck on 2019/10/28 13:14
I really hesitated to buy this app for a while and I didn’t buy a iPhone X Max I got the cheaper version the XR. This app is amazing for people like me that wish they could go back and get the other phone to use the portrait mode. I love the creators so much! Thank you for an amazing app!
Great app

Doesn’t support RAW photo edit
by xja7kexx on 2019/10/27 19:39
This app doesn’t support RAW photo edit. Too many features only will work if you pay $13 life time access. There’s no such a trial.

The best app for blurring background
by Mike Mart on 2019/10/27 17:21
So far this is the best i have tested for blurring the background. Nothing comes close.
Very nice app. I am really enjoying it!!

It really got focus
I hope they don’t pull a fast one
by Jax and team on 2019/10/27 05:22
I took a screenshot of the supposed 1x payment/per year for the “pro” version after I paid for it. They better not update it and make me pay more. 5 stars may be a temporary rating, we’ll see, I am deleting Photoshop express for this.
The best photo editing app.

Amazing app
by Snaprebelx on 2019/09/04 23:39
I got to try out the app before I even got a dual lens phone and loved it. So it was my first download when I got my phone. I absolutely loved the app. But the downside for me was the lag taking a pic with portrait mode vs a regular picture (this is due to the phone, not focos) I love taking spur of the moment photos and couldn’t always use portrait mode. When I opened the app today to edit a picture and saw the new update that made it possible to use on all pics I excitedly tried a regular photo and it was absolutely perfect. I’m so thrilled that I just had to review. I have no real need for pro version but I think I’m going to buy it anyway just to support the developer. This is a must have app for photo lovers, hands down!!!
Good, not great
by Shaloha91 on 2019/12/04 20:52
This app is amazing...in theory. In practice however this app needs to improve its core algorithm and it’s fine-tuning abilities. The app always seems to miss some spots in the image thinking they are closer than they are. And not blurring them as a result. The current tools available for correcting it simply don’t work well (and I’ve tried every possible way). There needs to be some way not to control where blur is applied with a brush, but to also allow the user to correct the 3D map and tell the app that certain areas are actually farther away than the app thinks. I’m really hoping the engineers working on this app are continuing to invest in the actual blur algorithm rather than on vanity things like UI and blur styles. It still needs more work doing the core of what it is supposed to to: effectively and accurately blur areas that are actually farther away, in such a way that looks natural and realistic.
I’m having fun but I can’t find my saved images.
by henofthewoo on 2019/09/04 21:15
I’m using this free, and I enjoy the tools. There are lots of functions I can’t reach without paying-I may subscribe eventually. It’s not completely intuitive, I think some of the tools are just over my head. I would like to be able to save an image that I edited to my photo stream when I hit save, that hasn’t seemed to work. I don’t normally review stuff because I want to play with it for a while before I give an opinion but this is certainly worth downloading and trying out. The 3D effects are great and I like switching the focal points in my photos. Update: I can do things to the image that I want to save. I haven’t found how to make that save happen. Yes, all images that are saved go to my photo album but I can’t save while it is doing bokeh.
MAGNIFICENT 👏🏼
by MayBaePrincess on 2019/11/26 03:40
Right off the bat I can say I’m really enjoying this app. In a very long search of an app that has amazing quality blurring background effects I have come across many that just didn’t fulfill what I wanted until I came across this one. Not only do they have gorgeous effects, they have many options for everyone who is looking for a blurring background editing app that gives a truly professional appearance. Very easy to use as well. My photos look amazing and high definition which is why I love it so much! Just like most you’ll get the best effects with the pro version but I must say “ TOTALLY WORTH IT!!” You will not be disappointed that I can guarantee!
This app re-writes how to edit apps
by Allen Lieberman on 2019/08/30 17:44
Bought the full edition for 12 bucks and it is the BEST 12 bucks I ever spent. There is a very large learning curve so you need to be patient. It isn’t for beginners neither, it is for those that want to really get into video editing in a 3D dimension. For 2D dimension, stick with photoshop express. My only complaint for lack of better term is using the various lenses for effects. It’s very difficult to find the effect when applying the lens filter as it is extremely subtle changes. I am sure it is user induced as I am only 24 hours into using this app.

Favorite photography app for the iPhone
by Slimshenky23 on 2019/10/19 18:20
If you want more control of your portrait mode pics (or even the ability to mimic portrait mode with your standard images), this app is for you! My three favorite features: being able to refocus the portrait mode images to any subject, the magic wand to fine tune the blur in front and behind the subject, and the AR view while adding additional light in an image (which also happens to digitally create accurate shadows as well)... With practice, your photos will look more professional!
So much control
by Jesusx1 on 2019/08/28 20:37
Usually taking a portrait picture means choosing between either capturing the perfect moment, or having it look nice. But this app allows you to focus on the moment and then once you’re ready, go back and touch up mistakes that your iPhone made when it tried to guess what was the background and what your subject actually was. This is all the control your phone should have but is completely lacking. Thanks Devs!
Absolutely incredible!
by Mr. Plane on 2019/09/20 01:10
The new update is remarkable. I do have a dual lens camera, but being able to get depth data out of non-portrait photos is insane. Amazing app, super helpful developer too! A few months ago I asked about an issue and got a response promising it to be fixed in the next update, along with a feature I requested. And it happened! Great person, awesome app and overall a must have tool for phone photography.
INCREDIBLE
by Joey123.s on 2019/09/24 01:23
I’ve been using this app for almost a year now. Me being able to adjust depth, change where the depth is in the photo, allowing me to add effects etc. Every single one of those features are amazing. It was a 5 star. Now with the added feature of taking any picture and being able to add bokeh is a 10 star rating. Incredible work you all are doing. Lifetime membership is even better!
Revolutionary mobile technology, wow!
by Ericmst18 on 2019/08/30 18:02
This new update is amazing, I have the iPhone 8 Plus and although portrait mode and everything is built into the phone the selfie portrait mode isn’t available on my phone, this app allows that feature to come alive, and any other photo it allows me to change the depth of field regardless if it was on portrait mode. This is a game changer and it looks so accurate! Must have!
Revolutionary app
by EdwardKhoma on 2019/08/28 20:11
This is by far the most revolutionary photography app for the iPhone. The developer of Focus is very passionate about pushing the boundaries of iPhone photography at it shows. Version 2.0 is SUCH a powerful update, bringing portrait mode to non-portrait photos. Let that sink in... any normal photo you take can now be enhanced with this app to add depth of field and elevate your photos to the next level. Kudos to the developer, I cannot wait to see how Focus grows.
A #shotoniphone game-changer
by Taylor.Lynn on 2019/10/05 22:14
The things you can do with this app 🙌. Portrait mode is great and all, but it still doesn’t give you that wide open look you get with a larger sensor. This app really gives you so much control over how your depth of field looks. Honestly I can’t tell the difference between some of my iPhone and actual camera shots now (without pixel peeping of course). The yearly pro price was very reasonable as well.

by yadira.lgzp on 2019/10/03 12:52
I never write reviews for apps but this is necessary at this point. I just started using this app and it’s exactly what I was looking for. I don’t want to scribble out where I want the blur to go. That’s time consuming and looks tacky. But this app just does it it seconds! I want to thank the makers of this app because this seriously made my life so much easier and my pictures look so PROFESSIONAL! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
❤️10 Stars for Focos!❤️

App was already amazing for tweaking our portrait-mode photos taken with newer iPhones. With today’s update, we can turn ANY photo into amazing portrait-style with bokeh background. Just brush on the places you want to stand out and it automatically blurs the background, plus provides many other options such as lighting, aperature, shapes, etc. Highly recommend it; just purchase Focos Pro—it’s the best of its class!
The best iOS camera app out there
by JoeofCanada on 2019/09/26 01:21
Better than the stock camera app. Especially well with low light photos where the stock camera would have trouble making out finer details in a darker environment. Practically turns my iPhone 7 camera into a 7 Plus camera (without the dual camera features). AIA there's absolutely no reason not to use this app. Wish I could rate 5.5 stars
Amazing
by @nolimit.josh2x on 2019/09/09 19:32
Absolutely amazing. From my time using it , I haven’t encountered many ads , if any at all! It helps so much with portrait pictures , making them much more in depth or much less depth. And even if need help with a picture that wasn’t taken in portrait mode , this app now automatically renders pictures that aren’t in portrait mode. So you can edit any picture!!
Wow! Really pleasantly surprised
by Rater1234 on 2019/10/26 00:10
Depth of field adjustment works perfectly on existing images without having to convert / retake them and even though I used the normal photo settings... I have an XR which can’t do bokeh on anything except human faces but this app fixes that! Quality for the bokeh is awesome too. I haven’t explored all the features yet but just got this one feature it’s a must-have!
Best.. portrait app on the play store!
by xonlytyrek on 2019/10/02 20:28
Look. I don’t even write reviews on anything but this is just AMAZING 🙅🏾‍♂️😂 especially US older iPhone users that don’t have the portrait mode! I have a iPhone 6! And now I can take pictures that look like I have iPhone 10 professional pictures just amazing I’ve tried SO many other apps ain’t nothing topping this.😂
Great app, but crashes a lot
by bryanbuff on 2019/11/06 15:47
Portrait Mode on the iPhone is great, but not always perfect. This app allows me to correct the things Portrait Mode didn’t do right. However, I’ve noticed a lot of crashing and I’m working on the newest iPhone Pro and iPad Pro (3rd Gen). I also wish it was a bit more intuitive. I struggle sometimes with what certain things do. The brush should add blur and the eraser should take it away, but in edit mode it doesn’t show what’s blurred and what’s not. I have to guess.
Phenomenal
by B&W rules on 2019/11/01 19:39
I have several camera apps and was always a bit frustrated with the depth of field controls. Within minutes I was using this app and making appropriate adjustments. The included tutorial is well thought out. This is in my opinion one of the best photo apps out there. Cannot wait to dive into it in more depth (pun intended).
Version 2.0 Is Amazing!
by KeithShepard on 2019/09/08 00:30
This was already a great app, but the recent 2.0 release is flat out amazing. Love the fact that it can generate depth of field data from single camera iPhones and iPads. Portrait mode on my XS Max has never looked better than with Focos 2.0. Awesome job by the app developer. This is a fantastic camera app that is worth every penny. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5.
One of the best!
by Jazzpr on 2019/09/30 23:46
This app is amazing! Its a must have app for the everyday photographers, who wants to take studio portrait photos but don’t want to carry a big DSLR. The Lifetime unlimited access is a plus to complete the app and gain access to an endless possibilities in photo editing. This application has features that makes you forget the stock camera app. Great job!!
I love this app
by Karim.M.rihan on 2019/12/04 04:38
One of my tops favorites photography apps But it would be amazing if live taking photo’s grid\ratio to have 2.66:1. And. 2.76:1. And don’t have to go to crop mode to crop it I also suggest to add (capture outside frame) feature as i can take photos in whatever ratio I choose but still can reverse it back anytime layer in editing if i like
95% of features are paywalled.
by forever.nocturnal on 2019/11/07 17:13
If you’re looking for something that can tweak or fine tune portrait blur and has filters, this app will do the trick. But it’s not the best I’ve used by far and it’s kind of a one trick pony. I will say it got 2 stars for how well it can take a photo that’s not shot in portrait mode and concert it to one. Does a fine job from what I’ve seen too. But the pay to play features are expensive AF. Maybe a full version for a week/month would be a better business model.
Great app
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2019/11/02 14:01
Decided to update my original review, which was also very positive. Awesome app. Absolutely my favorite iPhone app. Being able to paint in the effect is a huge benefit to me. Became even better when it was updated to work with images that weren’t taken in portrait mode. Now I can load images from my mirrorless camera onto my phone and enhance background separation. Just outstanding. I do wish it could work with and save images in original resolution, as I lose a lot from my 26 MP camera. Keep up the great work. This app has been a great value for me and I am so glad I bought it. Thank you so much for creating it.
Best
by Sydney Jezik on 2019/10/10 04:08
Literally the best app. I’m not even a bot. This app is amazing at photo editing. It can blur beautifully and make a photo look better than portrait mode and it does it automatically, without me having to draw all over the background to “select” it or anything. And its lighting effects are astounding. Seriously, give it a shot.
Best app out there
by himekaji on 2019/09/10 21:02
I love the new update oh my gosh it makes it so you can use any photo on my phone and it’s amazing . I love that even though I have an older phone it lets me take or even correct the blur of many photos even if it’s not taken with this phone . I love that customization and will use it for a very long time.
Amazing !!
by Vamazin1011 on 2019/10/20 16:43
I have the iPhone 11 so every time I take a picture it adds on like this orangey tone instead of the natural lighting.. when I used this app it was perfect the background and lighting was exact. No vibrancy effect , just perfect lighting! I’ve downloaded so many apps , finally found the right one 😩
Most important app for a mobile photographer
by Jarvis 05756 on 2019/09/29 02:38
This app has become a staple in my workflow when I’m using my phone. The free version offers plenty of features. I’d love the full version but I think I’d be much more willing to pay something like 4.99 or 5.99 for it. Luckily they are quite generous with the free version.
Seriously you won’t regret buying it.
by TheSouthernDuck on 2019/10/28 13:14
I really hesitated to buy this app for a while and I didn’t buy a iPhone X Max I got the cheaper version the XR. This app is amazing for people like me that wish they could go back and get the other phone to use the portrait mode. I love the creators so much! Thank you for an amazing app!
I like it
by ador82 on 2019/11/29 03:41
This app is good for beginners and you can purchase pro version. I haven’t quite figured out the different lens feature yet- how are they different? When I switch lenses the picture stays the same so this may be a useless feature. Also I can’t find shutter speed within the app. But without those 2 components- the rest is great for iphone XS
Wow!
by Some guy in Seattle on 2019/10/13 15:18
I push the limits of post-processing on iPhones (to both see what’s possible and fix poorly-taken pictures!) and I’ve never seen anything like this app. Not for the casual photographer - but if you want to change the apparent depth of field, lighting, etc. *after the fact* this app is astounding.
This app is amazing.
by Mmmnr on 2019/09/21 18:43
I use an iPhone 8 without portrait mode yet with this app I can take portrait photos and I can work with older photos to create the same effect. Good with the free version, great with the in app upgrade. I have never been totally satisfied with my iPhone photos. This app makes all the difference.
I hope they don’t pull a fast one
by Jax and team on 2019/10/27 05:22
I took a screenshot of the supposed 1x payment/per year for the “pro” version after I paid for it. They better not update it and make me pay more. 5 stars may be a temporary rating, we’ll see, I am deleting Photoshop express for this.
Portraits on single lense camera!!!!!
by Twistashio on 2019/10/06 14:34
I don’t know how they did it but I can use my iPhone 6s to now take portraits! Before the app would not allow you to take them with older devices. Now using A.I you can take full on portraits with your older iPhones. Now all this need is a night mode and I will finally give this app 5 stars but it’s totally worth the download!
Small issue
by Jub9000 on 2019/09/12 19:38
This is a great app but I have one issue: The yellow thumbnail triangle is very useful to show what photos I e already affected but it shows up on the thumbnail of a photo I adjusted but did not save. I cannot find a way to remove this triangle. If I missed it, then the solution is not intuitive.
Nice Effect
by drnielsen on 2019/10/18 17:43
Until I started using this app, I didn’t really appreciate how much depth of field really can be used to enhance a photo. With all of today’s digital photography, we often capture “too much.” This really helps to zero in on your main subject. Well worth the money.
Mind Blowing App
by 123CarGuy123 on 2019/11/01 13:52
This app allows you to change the focal point from any picture. Works better on iPhone pictures. Spend the extra few $$ and unlock the app. It adds a lot of worthwhile features. The iPad version of FOCOS is really easy to use!
Simply fantastic!!!
by Ehab Kashkash on 2019/10/30 02:39
This is one of the best applications I have ever purchased and is definitely worth every penny. I’m not a professional photographer but this application has made me one. I love the amazing control over every aspect on the photo and how great the results are. Well done!
Gets rid of portrait lighting effects...
by Captainsbandana on 2019/09/25 09:56
Absolutely the best bokeh app on the App Store... it has a massive array of options and computational features that are genuinely impressive. I just wish I could have iOS Portrait Mode's natural grain... the images in Focos are too smooth, and the grain you can add is too colorful. Looking forward to the video version of Focos!
Absolutely amazing app that creates beautiful bokeh
by Tex Teton Guy on 2019/09/18 20:06
I read a review of this free app and was skeptical - but since it is free, I thought I would give it a try. I was blown away on how well it works on photos that have been taken years ago. Very impressive. Highly recommended!
Don’t think. Download.
by hipp18 on 2019/11/23 20:56
I discovered this app because the portrait mode on my iPhone 10s only works for faces (and who doesn’t want an artsy hyper-focused photo of their backside or their plate of food?!). So I was on the hunt for something that wouldn’t take a lot of effort, but could be adjusted to preference and would turn out quality photos. This. Is. It. My friend who is a graphic designer and teaches iPhone photography courses swears by it ever since I shared it with him. I KNOW I don’t use all the features it’s capable of, but I use the bare minimum and feel like a pro.
Amazing
by Oz1000000 on 2019/11/21 16:16
Almost certainly going to get the Pro in app purchase. There is plenty in the free version, so don’t be pushed away because it does have a pro, but it is probably the mort interesting photo app I’ve seen in the whole App Store! A must have!
Focus makes my pictures look beautiful
by MissyK68 on 2019/11/20 01:34
I am always pleasantly surprised when I use Focus, instead of the iPhone Camera app, because my pictures just always look better! I enjoy using this app!!
One of the best photo apps I’ve ever used!
by Cakerlips on 2019/10/25 21:50
It is a super simple platform app that is absolutely quick and easy to use! The depth calculation and the bokeh effect is just marvelous! I definitely recommend using this app even over normal phone portrait mode!
Trying to find capability
by Larrysfunpics on 2019/09/28 21:03
I feel it would be advantageous to you to allow us to use the locked functions even if you placed a big watermark on the image. I am trying to figure out what the SW is capable of and finding it a challenge. There’s things I still need to figure out.
