PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!
by Cartard! on 2020/11/29 14:34
Instasize used to be my favorite pic editing app. But these past few weeks the app just closes while I’m editing my pics. I also pay $4.99/month for all features. I recently upgraded to the iPhone 11 ProMax.. so if that’s the problem, please fix the bugs!
Oh

Now i have to buy it to use any filters

I can’t use this app anymore cus i have to buy it now
Sad about the new grid.
by eleighz on 2020/11/26 18:04
I have been using Instasize for years now! I love the filters and previewing the way a new photo will look on my IG feed. I opened the app up just now after updating to the new iPhone 12, and am seriously sad about the new grid layout. There’s a giant white space between photos. This is so disappointing as I use this app before posting any photos on IG. Please switch back to the old layout! I really don’t want to have to find a new app to use.
No es muy clara

DO NOT DOWNLOAD

Tried to cancel through apple and through email to the actual company. Still being billed. Awful.
Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
Glitches nonstop
by abbie09090 on 2020/11/26 00:09
I have been using this app for years and enjoy it. But I can’t edit pictures this past year without the app glitching, deleting the photo, or just exiting out by itself all together
Crashes
by ljaejebejekd on 2020/11/25 17:42
I use to be able to log in and loved the fact that I was able to edit my pictures so easily. Now when I attempt to open the app it crashes. Unable to use app and I had previously purchased backgrounds I’m unable to use.
Can’t even use the app
by 111111111111111118 on 2020/11/25 17:18
I only wants me to buy the subscription I can’t take to the editing screen because I have to get the sub to continue, kinda seems pushing and a little scam like 🤷🏽‍♀️
Bug???
by Passive_Rubbish on 2020/11/25 13:39
Honestly disappointed, I tried to open up the app and it just keeps closing on me. Maybe this is a bug issue but I used to really like this app for my photos.
USED to be my favorite app..
by anisha.murdock22 on 2020/11/25 05:01
I have had instasize for MANY years now and have loved it. I even have the premium package of edits so I can have more editing options. Recently, they just updated their app and the instagram layout is GONE ! My photos do not look like the same edits I originally have made them and the grid has changed. It is to the point I do not even want this app anymore. It was my favorite and I used to tell everyone about it. Now I want to delete it. PLEASE CHANGE YOUR GRID BACK TO HOW IG LAYOUT IS! There is a white border running through the photos. Fix it !!!!! -An upset instasize fan :(
Devious trick to make you subscribe!
by Tbc5730 on 2020/11/24 13:19
I’ve used this app multiple times and it works well. However, at some point they added a surprise screen at the end after you’ve saved your edited pic that tricks you into subscribing. When you place your thumb on the screen to change apps, you see that a new “buy it now” pop-up interstitial screen has appeared and you’ve already made a purchase.
They do not respond to cancellation requests
by marielcanop on 2020/11/24 06:31
Please cancel the subscription and return me my money.
Money
by KyrieSwirving on 2020/11/24 02:33
I got charged for a free trial
If I could give it 0 stars I would! I can’t even get into the app
by psychicpizza on 2020/11/23 16:28
When I open the app I immediately get asked to sign up for there premium account. Other apps do this but there is a place to exit out of this page. On Instasize I cane exit this. I try to click in the corners where the x button usually is but it doesn’t work. I try to reopen the app and that doesn’t work either. How good of an app can this be if I can’t get in to it. I have to go through the lesgaf documents just to use the editor. Please tell me there is an easy way to do this ? This app is a joke. This company is a joke
My app won’t open
by karrbarr on 2020/11/22 23:48
The app won’t even open for me I tried installing and uninstalling and it still doesn’t work I was a paying costumer too so I don’t understand why and I have an iPhone 11 Pro I just don’t understand why it won’t work
Ugh, help!
by Randajb on 2020/11/22 16:24
I have always used this app and loved it but i downloaded it on my new iphone 12 pro max and it will NOT let me use it unless I buy/subscribe to it..which I do not want to do when it was free on my iphone 8 plus!

Keeps crashing while in the middle of editing
by ksvdjsbwksodbdv on 2020/11/22 03:29
I love this app and i use it anytime to edit pictures for instagram posts, but i recently just started using it again and now anytime i try to finish editing it crashes before i can save my photo and i have to start over. i don’t know why!!
Annoying
by rozeyyxo on 2020/11/21 22:46
Every time I open up the app it like freezes on monthly subscription.. I always end up accidentally pressing the subscription and it’s so annoying. I don’t even think I can even get my money back.

Ridiculous charges

Where is the option to cancel??

There is no simple way to cancel.
Crashing
by ChelsBelles on 2020/11/20 16:46
This has always been the photo tool I’ve used for years. Today I tried to edit one photo and it crashed 6 times on me. This is a bug that needs to be fixed. It’s beyond frustrating to almost be done 6 different times to then have it crash and you have to restart.
Glitches every time have not been able to use it and I paid for the membership.

i used to LOVEEE this app. but it’s so glitchy now. i can only edit one thing and the app closes out:/ very irritating and not useful
Disappointed
by Cheyenne Margarite~Fallon on 2020/11/19 17:20
I used to love this app. I used it to remove scars or blemishes but now it barely does that. Also I have been having trouble saving photos after they have been edited. Disappointed in the new update.
terrible.
by Ddanaw💗 on 2020/11/19 05:57
this app is so laggy and crashes all the time. it’s almost impossible to edit a pic comfortably.
Ads are overwhelming

The app seems great and I was enjoying it and out of no where when I’m editing my photos it freezes and then kicks me out causing me to start over , would give better review otherwise
Got charged immediately??
by meganaddison on 2020/11/18 21:06
Pretty positive I saw there was a free trial when I downloaded this, but I immediately got charged. Not happy about that.
Blur crash
by thetazeta2 on 2020/11/18 19:01
Can’t make a background photo blurry without the app crashing every time I move the toggle to above 50.... disappointing update
So many ads
by Lizazah on 2020/11/18 00:42
This app used to be great, easy to use and straight forward. There used to be some ads with the free option but now there are super annoying ads after EVERY SINGLE time you open or close a photo, window, or edit. Seriously guys?? This SUCKSSS
SO MANY ADS!
by MrBear213 on 2020/11/17 19:35
Not worth using as you’re done ignoring the ads and tap the X and takes you to the App Store where it tries to download!!!!!. There’s better apps out.

by Drama1C on 2020/11/16 14:43
I’ve had this app for years ! I absolutely loved it until it began bombarding me with ads every other second. It’s become extremely annoying and has left me to find another app to do the job.. I was ok with one ad while editing but this ..is overkill. Ads are even popping up while I’m in the middle of editing. Frustrating !
Crashes constantly
by Maddie8267 on 2020/11/16 03:08
I can’t even edit a picture anymore without it crashing in the middle and losing all my progress.
It has gotten worse!
by abdhehs on 2020/11/15 23:21
The app is horrible. It won’t let me edit pictures, upload ones I saved. I used to recommend this app a lot but now it’s pretty worthless.
Used to work fine. Not so much anymore
by JayQuis on 2020/11/15 23:16
Been using it for years but now it won’t change the size of any photo or video I try to change the size of. First it did that every other couple photos/videos. Now it was completely stopped working for any I choose to change using the app
Constant crashes
by julia29099 on 2020/11/15 22:20
I PAY for this app and have the most up to date iPhone so there is no excuse for this app to crash every time I use it. I’ve reported this before and tried redownloading the app. I deserve a refund.
Subscription
by Emmyzaj on 2020/11/15 13:34
I was using the app and it shut off during using. Then I got an email saying i subscribed to premium. I can’t figure out how to ask for a refund but I’m not happy. I even have confirm purchases on and it some how did it.
Rip-off!! Charged 4.99 without my consent!!
by Less Money, More Problems on 2020/11/15 05:12
Don't use this app. It will charge you $4.99 without asking you! I want a refund!
Really?

New Update
by Michaelarenae on 2020/11/13 19:26
With the new update i lost all of the things i had purchased previously and there is a restore purchase button but does not bring back my filters even after many times of trying. This used to be my go to app for editing but now its trying to make me pay for filters I’ve already bought
Not Good Anymore
by ChrisB228 on 2020/11/13 19:07
This app has been my go-to for years and it’s sad to see it has lost its way. It’s nothing but non-stop ads (that you can’t skip through!) and constantly begging for subscribers. I miss the good old days of legitimate free apps that didn’t scam you.
Obnoxious Decisions
by Anthony Park on 2020/11/12 21:32
This is a decent app that is crippled by the obnoxious decisions the developer has taken to monetize it. The app has steadily become more and more invasive in how it uses advertising and tricks to get users to become a premium subscriber. Not too long ago, the app would show you an ad very occasionally. It was annoying, but I suppose I understood it was part of their business model for non paying users and I begrudgingly sucked it up. Now, the app shows you an extremely annoying ad almost every few steps through using it to the point that it's now unusable. What's worse, and I find totally unforgivable, is that it attempts to trick you into subscribing by showing the subscription payment screen at the point where you are trying to save an edited image to your camera roll. It's like a last final attempt to get something out of the user by whatever method they can before they likely close the app. My humble suggestion to the developer: treat your customers, even the non-paying ones with respect. A free user is a user that you should try to impress with what you can offer, not annoy into submission. They will be far more likely to subscribe to a service that offers value to them rather than capitulating to irritating tactics or deception. Don't you want to be proud of your creation? Secondly, the subscription at ~$60 year is far too expensive for what the app offers. By comparison, this is 50% of the price Adobe charges for their photography creative suite, which clearly is a far, far bigger proposition. I used the app very occasionally for one feature only which it did well (adding borders to images). Clearly this isn't worth the $60/year, but there is no other option other than this or be irritated at every stage of use. If there was a reasonable alternative, even a mid-tier with not all of the features, I'd likely have subscribed. As it is, I've had enough and will now be deleting it. The border tool I used to use has been changed to produce much smaller borders, so that's of no use now anyway. If the developer dropped their underhand tactics and priced the app reasonably, I suspect they would have far happier users and far more of them. It's a real shame to me that the developer has chosen the opposite path. Update in response to the developer's reply: I have no issue with the premium subscription, other than thinking it could be better value or have a middle tier - but that's your call of course. What I do have issue is where you try to trick the user into subscribing by throwing up the payment confirmation screen when saving a photo. Also, the ads can only be closed after they have played and pop up with such frequency that makes the app unusable, as noted by many other reviews too. Again, treat your users with respect and they will almost certainly give it back to you.
SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!
by deejee23 on 2020/11/12 01:42
This app is a scam! I’m being charged for ACCIDENTALLY getting a premium subscription! They’re doing this on purpose! It’s supposed to be a “3 day free trial then you’ll be charged” why are you charging me immediately???
Too expensive.
by J0nathan! on 2020/11/12 01:40
Give me a break. $5 for “pro” features a MONTH!? Application is sleek and we’ll designed though.
Purchases
by Jfihdhdididhhjjdidjdi4747 on 2020/11/11 22:58
Always popping up add to purchase stuff on the app any time you try to save your photo or anything. Very annoying.

by savage 언니 on 2020/11/11 20:27
I used to always use this app for my editing but ever since a few months back every time I open it it just closes I tried deleting the app and re-downloading it and it doesn’t even open anymore so I’ll have to use a new app now :/

Used to be good
by AliceAmberlight on 2020/11/10 04:48
This app used to be my go to for all my Instagram posts, but now it’s constantly shoving ads in my face and trying to get me to accidentally tap the payment fingerprint button once I finish editing a photo. It’s ridiculous. If I wanted to pay for premium I would, don’t try to trick me into paying, that’s slimy. I’ll be looking for a new editing app for my page.
Crash issues
by Wtfuuuuuuuuuh on 2020/11/10 04:48
The retouch feature always crashes the app after you finalize your retouch edit. Fix this please.
BUG SPOTTED IDK IF JUST ME
by Geoavssoebdoan on 2020/11/10 04:14
I paid for the cheapest pack so I could edit my pictures, well every time I go to whiten my teeth on a picture or something, when I hit finish to go edit some more my screen is white. Anyone else have this problem??
Upset!
by nxjcncndkd on 2020/11/10 03:19
I had this app not long ago and was able to use it fine (limited filters, some ads, etc). I just downloaded it again and it won’t even let me start the app without making a payment. I find it very annoying!!
Pretty upset
by __chamberlain on 2020/11/10 02:25
I’ve been using Instasize for the longest but randomly when I open the app it just takes me back to my home screen. I’ve deleted & reinstalled but nothing works & I’m pretty bummed out because I had a lot of pics on there saved :/ bad idea on my part

Nice features, too much crashing
by ReviewBabeXoXo on 2020/11/09 21:32
I like the editing options and features this app includes. One thing that is extremely frustrating is how often it crashes. I’ll be in the middle of editing a photo and it just closes out and I have to restart, then it happens over and over again. I’ve tried deleting the app and downloading it again but the same issue continues to occur. Often it’s with the same editing tools - touch up tools for example.
Glitch galore
by Dre-K on 2020/11/09 15:11
Filters and creative edit capabilities are great but the app itself needs serious technical attention. I have to “restore” my purchase almost everyday or I lose Premium (even though I’m on a monthly subscription) and often times the app freezes while doing so and I have to delete it (along with all my photos) and reinstall. There must be others with equivalent features that aren’t as difficult to manage.
Terrible
by TraeStelzer on 2020/11/09 00:14
You cannot save the photo you edit and the app will randomly close and make you start over.
Used to love
by T10445 on 2020/11/08 20:30
i used to love instasize but stop shoving premium down my throat! i cant even ex out when i get to the main page. i cant use it at all because the premium ad won’t go away! 2/10 for me now. annoying ads and useless.
Instasize Review
by Gweenween on 2020/11/08 16:43
I would actually give it a 4.5/5 but I really do love the app & all of the features. I’ve had instasize for years and so far I’ve like every update.
Too many ads to be functional
by SmellyJessy on 2020/11/08 14:56
What a ridiculous app and waste of time. So many ads, each of which is close to a minute long which gets incredibly annoying if you accidentally click the wrong picture to upload for editing and have to wait 2 minutes total to start editing. Swiftly deleting this app. Btw, whatever you advertise this aggressively makes me not wanna buy or download it out of spite so good work!
Fonts and text are near impossible
by LeathyGreens on 2020/11/08 02:46
Have been using this for years. I’ve been trying to get a short paragraph of font to work with an image and all sorts of bugs are presenting themselves. I ended up purchasing another app. Some of the bugs- when I want to edit the text that I’ve written, I cannot see the top line (it appears behind the iphone center speaker/lense). It would be good to be able to control the way the font falls on a line too. Remember we are on here working around images, So sometimes we need only 2 words on a line, other times we have the space to use 5 words. Let us control that. This is a photo and text app.
Disappointed
by CrisHinrichs on 2020/11/08 00:15
I’m using this app long time already but now I can’t save any images to my camera roll. It’s doesn’t work anymore and one more thing, I restarted my phone, I downloaded the app again but now I have to pay for it.
Do NOT buy

by QuicheDr on 2020/11/07 02:05
Not to be that guy but the video ads get frozen and don’t even allow you to open the picture settings to open them
You HAVE to get rid of the pop-up premium ad
by unwillingpremium on 2020/11/07 00:15
I’ve used this app so much through the years but I was just cheated out of 5$ because after downloading my photo the premium ad popped up and my phone automatically took my thumbprint and charged me.
Buggy
by Bryce Wimberly on 2020/11/06 15:49
I don’t know if it’s just me because it works for everyone else it seems like. But I can’t save and export photos. I’ve tried redownloading but it didn’t fix it.

Have used this app for years and now when I upload photos the quality of my photos degrades. Very frustrating! I have tried the HD and Max settings and nothing is helping. I just want the pictures I upload to the app to look like the ones in my camera roll!

by Maddiebaddie_cheerandtumblr on 2018/08/08 01:26
i’ve used instasize for YEARS now, before they ever had the subscription deal, and before you had to make an account for instasize. i used it so much that i purchased about 3-5 different filter packs about a year or two ago. but recently, the developers changed to a monthly subscription instead of buying certain packs. when they did that, i lost all the filters i bought. i would gladly get the subscription, but i already spent about $10+ on filters i used constantly that were just taken from me, and i’m also a teen who doesn’t have a job, so i can’t exactly always have the money for said subscription. i tried emailing the company about this, because it really irritates me that i spent money......on basically nothing now, but it wouldn’t go through, in a way that makes me think the email listed in the app description doesn’t work. i want to know if these filters can somehow be restored or something, because i even hit “restore purchases” and nothing happened. idk if it’s because i didn’t have an instasize account or what, but it’s really, really frustrating. ***edit: problem solved!!! amazing customer service, seriously it’s unreal, and it’s still the best app i’ve ever used for editing !!!
This is a rip-off
by Madi is lit on 2019/01/18 01:13
I installed instasize a very long time ago because I could edit videos as well as pictures using cool filters and editing tools. I do remember that I had problems with ads in the past and that I was working with a very limited editing and filter selection, which made me extremely sad. So I deleted the app. It resurfaced on my dash because some of my friends started downloading this app. It was advertised so well that I thought of getting this app again. I was offered over 80 filters and cool editing tools and I could not believe it. So I downloaded it and I instantly regret it. In order to use the app to its full creative extent, I have to pay unnecessary money. I have an even more limited amount of filters than when I first downloaded the app, and I can barely even get through editing a picture without so many ads popping up. Honestly, it’s like the app is infested with ads. I would have considered the continual use of it bad there been an upfront price I could pay instead of a subscription. This ain’t some high end product deserving of even considering a subscription. It’s best to just stick with VSCO because there at you least have a good amount of filters, there aren’t ads, and no subscription. They have options to purchase filters and the prices are manageable. This app has disappointed me a second time and I won’t let there be a third time. A waste of space on my phone.
Refuse to pay monthly for an editing app
by only here for the reviews on 2020/05/07 12:15
I had always used Instasize to edit all of my pictures, it was my all time favorite editing app. Mainly because I loved that I could use the app to adjust the size of any picture to fit my lock screen. I also only used the same few filters and features so the free version was perfect for me. Although the constant premium adds were a tad bit annoying because they popped up every time I tried to save my pictures, but they were bearable because the app used to be quick and easy to use. However, the app became increasingly more annoying, time consuming and harder to use because of all the premium adds. It got to the point to were I couldn’t save any photos because I “had” to upgrade to premium, and I refuse to pay a monthly prescription when I only use three of the features. I then came to the conclusion there MUST be a glitch with my favorite editing app so I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and boy I was wrong. Now I cannot even use the app without going premium, it offers a 3 day free trial and then it’s a monthly prescription. Since when did instasize become so money oriented that a free version, even if it was ad infested and offered very limited features, isn’t even offered? Very disappointed and will be looking for a new editor because I refuse to pay for three basic editing features.
Not sure if they are trying to scam people or if it’s a glitch
by Annbanan122 on 2020/05/03 05:59
So I was already pretty upset that one of my favorite editing apps took away some features and started asking for money. Usually when I save a picture an add to buy premium will pop up and I’ll just exit out and save to camera roll, no problem. As of recently when I got to save my picture the add that pops up when I got to save my picture will be invisible, that or the save to camera roll button has been changed to PURCHASE premium. When tapping save to camera roll it will ask for my finger print to buy premium. On multiple occasions I have almost pressed the home button to exit out. Which would have then purchased premium without my consent. I’ve used the app so much that when I do a quick edit I just zoom through the steps to save my picture so I’ve come very close to accidentally buying premium multiple times, and honestly I can’t afford premium at all, nor would I ever want to pay for it. I really hope it’s just a bug, because it would be a pretty sketchy thing for them to do to get people to accidentally buy premium!
Awesome
by Freedomgirl44 on 2017/12/23 01:21
Honestly I love using this app! It gives me the option of using soo many things for free! I would however love if their were more backgrounds available... for example like a birthday background or a celebration background for those special pictures that you want to post about someone else's birthday or even yours! THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME BACKGROUND!! Keep up the good work! ***UPDATED MY APP SO NEEDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW*** I do love that the creators of this app took my advice on adding Birthday backgrounds that you can customize and new backgrounds for certain holidays. I’m disappointed that they took that and decided you can only add those certain filters if you pay for the app for every month or if you do the trial. I remember that you used to be able to download them and use them for the holidays and they would disappear after a certain time. Oh well. As much as I love this app because it’s so easy to use it looks like I might need to look into a new app for my pictures. It was good while it lasted. Thank you for considering my ideas though. It’s nice to know that their are people that listen to one persons feedback.
Was a great app
by thetashalee on 2018/10/09 01:50
Like other reviewers, I’ve been using this app for years to edit pictures. And now since the most recent update, I noticed one of my favorite (free) filters was gone. Then I realized nearly half of the free filters were removed! This was such a great free app to use, and I always recommended it to people. I tried the premium free trial before, and I even paid for it for a few months because I liked the extra features. But I decided that I didn’t need to be spending the extra money, and would continue to just use the free features because they were enough for me. But now it seems like InstaSize is only in it to get money out of people. Rather than providing a great free app for people to quickly edit pictures on the go (and choose to pay for the premium services/add-ons at their OWN convenience), it’s now a never-ending stream of ads trying to convince you to pay for their premium service, all while slowly taking away more “free” features, until you have no choice but to pay. 👎🏻
What free membership?
by Joreeses on 2019/07/02 14:29
I’ve been using this app since I have had an instagram to edit my photos, make them square without cropping, and make collages. I loved this app for these features. I have never bought any of the filter packs or paid for a premium membership since I’m not an instagram model or have any reason to put too much effort into editing pictures. However, this app still advertises the presence of a free membership, but does not seem to allow even basic use without premium membership. I have only been trying to use this app to place photos on a square, white background so I could post them without cropping. Whenever I try to download the image, a pop up comes up advertising the premium membership, but there is no way to skip, continue, or otherwise leave this add without closing out of the app. My question is: why advertise a free, basic membership but not allow users to actually use basic functionality? I have been using and have loved this app for years, but it looks like I’ll have to find a different one.
Subscription button scam
by Lacey Kingry on 2019/04/22 13:56
I typically only use this app to resize my photos for IG. None of the fancy filters or borders just a plain white background so there’s zero need for me to purchase the subscription. However, I uninstalled the app today because they make the subscription button THE BIGGEST BUTTON on the page when you first open the app. When I accidentally clicked it today and then tried to just hit my home button to get out of the app my fingerprint and payment was approved and BOOM! I had a subscription without even opting for one 🙃 if it wasn’t for the 7 day trial period my card would’ve been charged before I could’ve cancelled the subscription. Seems to me with it being the biggest of the two buttons on the screen that they’re banking on people accidentally hitting it and signing up for a subscription that they didn’t even care for. I understand the need to advertise for it to make a profit but don’t be skeezy about it. If I could report this app I would and I’ll be using a different app for my resizing needs from now on.
Used to be great
by adria1130 on 2020/10/10 23:03
I used to love this app and it did exactly what I needed, just sized down my photos, I never use the filters or text or any of the other stuff available but it was cool that it was offered and then out of no where these ads just kept playing before and after every picture edit, and I’m not talking about 5 second ads these go from 30 seconds to a minute and a half every time, it takes longer to get through the ad then it doesn’t for me to make my picture the size I want. And I get it you want people to pay for your app but the price is not worth what you actually get, especially if you are only using it for the sizing and nothing else, personally I suggest stop being greedy and those who need it will pay for it or honestly make it a one time purchase of $4.99 because what you actually offer isn’t worth a monthly subscription, not when we can just go find another app to do the same thing that won’t smother us in pointless ads that don’t “force” us to buy just make us uninstall
HATE THIS.
by Luvdisgameeeee!101 on 2019/04/25 22:30
Let me start off by saying I’ve used Instasize for at least the last 6-7 years maybe even more. When I discovered it I fell in LOVE. I was able to edit photos, make collages, easy handling and it was completely wonderful. I NEVER EVER HAD A COMPLAINT. That is until NOW. The update is completely and utterly trash!!!!! DO NOT DO IT. I used to be able to make collages and now for some awesome reason the photos before I hit to save magically change and all are distorted. Also I hate that I lost trim and have to make it myself. Whoever thought of this genius idea was a flipping IDIOT. I now will be spending money on other apps because this one seems to have lost the flipping bar. I’ve told hundreds of people to use this app, and now I’ll make sure to tell everyone not to. It’s BS. I’ve lost a lot of my filters, I can’t make collages, and I lost the design that brought me to insta. HORRIBLE. Horrible. HORRRIBLE. Y’all see what happened to Snapchat when they changed, it’s now back to normal. Hopefully whatever idiot you have building this crap app fixes it. If not by instasize wont wanna see ya EVER AGAIN.
Purchased restore
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/10/24 04:26
It is sad when companies promise something and don’t keep there promise. I purchased the no add function before they went to subscription as I loved the app for there ability to resize pictures. I do not use filters at all. Up to recently, I would still mark the app at 4 stars as I had no adds. Now that is impossible. Every time I resize a photo it gives me adds. Restore does no good. Not sure what else I can do but tell the world as they don’t want to fix the problem. I tried to contact them but got no help. Why should I pay for premium to get the one thing I purchased and the only thing I use. The no add function. They told me that if I sent copy of receipt they would fix the add problem. So much for promises. Even giving them the receipt does not work as they said they would not do this after I sent the receipt. They are not honoring there promise to me when I originally purchased no adds from them. In addition it still says you can purchase no adds but my purchase is not being honored. This makes no sense to me.
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.
Shady app
by Lyssa773! on 2020/06/09 20:40
This app used to be great. I assume with the rise of “influencers” they’ve decided to start charging per month. I needed to edit one photo and it says you get a free 3 day trial and after that it charges you (from other apps, that’s true. Only after the free trial they charge). I clicked okay, completed my photo, exited, and immediately got onto my Apple store to cancel the automatic subscription because I knew I wouldn’t remember to cancel it if I waited. Later on I got onto my credit card app and saw that I had *already* been charged! And right now, I just tried to get on to clarify why I was charged 5 something because I swore up and down that the cheapest one was 4 something, and they didn’t let you choose (they have like 10 different subscriptions to choose from) but they just had one button that mentioned subscriptions so I clicked it and it SUBSCRIBED ME AGAIN! this app is absolutely ridiculous and shady beyond belief. So now I’m sure I’ll get her another 5 dollar charge.
Glitchy and So Unneeded
by VideoGameRatings on 2019/12/21 13:47
This app is no other than glitchy but unneeded it self. We all have a edit button in the photos app. Just choose a photo click edit and bam. I know in the older iPads and phones they have a pretty crappy edit section and you can only crop the photo and pick a filter, but my brother finally offered me over a iPhone 11 so now I have one and the edit section is basically the whole Instasize app. This is honestly so disappointing. Even when you have this app, the app is still glitchy WITH THE NEWEST IPHONE. I thought again this was just me from way back to the iPad mini situation but this time it’s not me. It’s the app, and if you have a good edit section in your photos app, this is just a waste of storage. Also, I have Instagram and after you make a photo you have the options to save to camera roll, Instagram or share. When I click the Instagram button it rarely uploads to Instagram. Fix this or your getting another 1 star.
AWESOME APP!
by Abigail Villena on 2017/11/10 18:03
I have used several apps for editing and or making collages or editing videos but this is the best one thus far. It was introduced to me by my best friend who is a Design Director for Tiger text. She also recommended I try to become an Ambassador as well which I did and got accepted into the program. I love how the app has so many options yet so organized and easy to navigate through. As a Registered Nurse I am obligated to chart every shift and use a phone app called Mobile Heart beat which are pretty out of date compared to my millenial standard of how technology works. When I’m outside of work and come across apps that are easy to navigate through and can do multiple things I’m all for it. Thank you InstaSize!
Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
Currently Disappointed
by BLKJRF on 2018/01/29 17:47
I have happily used InstaSize for several years, and have really appreciated being able to upload my full size photos to Instagram (vs having to edit them to a square). While I rarely used InstaSize filters, the free app option suited me just fine. However, starting a few weeks ago I can no longer upload my edited photos to Instagram - the photo is sent with all editing lost and the full size photo option gone. I’m hoping this is just a temporary glitch as I will be disappointed to look for a new app comparable to the previous version of InstaSize, and one that does not cost $5 each month.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
The editing part is great but...
by jdbayskbfbd on 2020/06/30 18:46
So I love the editing part it makes my pictures look so much cooler and prettier, but a few minutes into editing, the app just closes. I am pretty mad about that because I worked pretty hard on it and it just deleted all of my progress, but I decided to start again. Within even less time than the last time it exited it did it again! I was super confused and tried one more time, and sure enough it exited. I was very annoyed as the picture was looking very cool, so I tried doing it as fast as I could and within the first 45 secs it just exits and I still try to make cool pictures but I usually never have enough time to make it better, so I think I will just take my business else where, as you should too if it does that to you.
AWSOME!!!!!!!!!
by so so so helpful on 2020/01/02 23:54
OMGosh , I just love this app it’s so so fun unlike some people I love to type stuff on the pictures and decorate them to .I also like how you get to choose a background for The picture however I don’t like how SOME of the backgrounds and tents you have to pay for. I do like how they give you just a couple that are free. I also like when you go to the typing to type stuff on the picture you can pic whatever color you would like none of them you have to pay for. I also like how you can have a account on there. The only reason I’m giving this app 5 stars is because it doesn’t make you pay for things right away you can exit out of it and just use the free stuff. Unlike other people I can’t buy stuff on apps I would get in trouble with my parents. Thanks again for reading!!! Have a merry late Christmas & ......... HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!! 🎊 IT’s.... 2020 Yayay
Could be the best
by unclenat on 2020/10/04 10:02
But instead it’s just frustrating. Constant image corrupting, after hours of painstaking work. Click’n drag and pinch’n zoom features are intuitive and amazing in theory, but in practice you spend all this time perfecting the layout only to pinch’n zoom one aspect of it but instead pinch’n zoom the image or some other feature that messes up all of your hard work. Try and type in an email address, it will force it into two lines no matter what you do… this has got to be the most frustrating feature. Having no control over a simple line of text and when it goes to the next line. I could go on, I keep using it because I have an actually found an app that is more intuitive or that has as much potential, except I’ve been using this up for so many years and it just gets more frustrating with every update.
Cool app BUT it could have been awesome
by PhilWil on 2018/12/25 15:48
This app is definitely for those who take pics or vids for Instagram. For those who do it for fun it's a cool addition to other apps. For those who are more people users, subscribing to the monthly is worth it ONLY if you want quick and have a higher level of color grading video files. BUT!!! It really needs more if you are going to subscribe. Instagram had long form photos and videos but it's actually pretty tough to edit that way in the app or have collages that are 4x5 or 3x5 long. Add that and it becomes worth it because now it takes advantage of more Instagram photo and video sizes. If I was the developer on this I would also think about adding something like what Swipable has, again taking advantage of what Instagram offers like multiple pics on one post (now capped at 10 currently). This app should have something for every feature Instagram allows to post. Heck maybe even scheduled posting. Do all of this and you will have more subscribers you know what to deal with. For now only three stars until the addition of long form or tall photos and videos are added to the app and to collages.
So many ads

I’ve been using this app for years and while back then it was one of my favorites, lately it has started to become one of my least used. In the past I purchased many filters and packs/features. Unfortunately they introduced the subscription model and all of my filters that I purchased were no longer available. I don’t use the app on a regular basis as I once did so I can’t justify the subscription. I just use the free version for when I need to edit a few photos. Well along with that free version comes so many ads it’s become unbearable. They even try to fool you into buying the subscriptions!! I miss the old version of just pay once for what you need...but that wouldn’t bring in tons of money I guess. My suggestion is to find another app to suit your needs.
Irritating but useful
by ffhuyty hkugb on 2019/05/27 19:37
InstaSize went from a simple way to make your larger photos fit perfectly into a collage, or instagram.... to annoying... It's so difficult to select and arrange photos into the collage. You can't rearrange the photos once they are randomly selected into the collage and these pop up ads are ridiculous. I don't too much mind the ones that give you an option to "X" out of them, it today I had one that wouldn't allow me to exit. I had to close out of my collage app and then start all over. With that being said,’it’s the easiest app to use to format Your picture size for the appropriate social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
Get full size pix for IG
by Mishka the ferret on 2018/09/27 19:45
****** Re-reviewed You used to get full size pix for IG. But lately it doesn’t put your full photos in like it used to. It’s now cropping my photos unlike it used to even when I Change the size of the photo. It’s very disappointing as this was a very large part is why I used this program and its for my modeling page! The next button has now been moved so I can use the program. But the fact is you’re supposed to be the program to not crop the IG photos and now you are that program you need to have design for all sizes of photos like you used to. You barely have had new backgrounds in years and it’s getting to be a very sad app. I’m now Looking for a new app just like this one only better now and that makes me sad this was a solid app for a long time. I had actually wanted to be an ambassador. And now you couldn’t pay me to do it!
Deceitful; I used for 15 mins, canceled, but still got charged $50
by VandaMeraki on 2019/07/23 20:10
Hi guys- I downloaded the free trial period a couple days ago; within 15 mins knew I wasn’t in love in the app, so went through the steps to cancel the subscription (no, not just delete the app, but I went into iTunes to cancel the subscription); today I see a charge from Apple saying Instasize charged me almost $50. I contacted Apple support today; they said they wish they could refund my c/c but due to some reason which they cannot even explain to me (they just kept sending me a link to read a million fine print). They said if I contact Instasize, you will just refer me back to Apple. This is unacceptable. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume there is a major glitch in your system right now, but I absolutely want my money back! I used your app for not even 15 minutes and now you/Apple are locking me into a year-long commitment. I never even authorized the dang thing to charge me. If it’s not truly a free trial, then you shouldn’t advertise it as such. I never would have downloaded it in the first place if I had known this would waste so much time and energy. Please revolve this ASAP or I will just have to get my credit card to block your charges! Thank you.
Having issues
by 36467432456788876 on 2018/10/24 00:49
I do really like the app and I’ve been using it forever, but for some reason I can’t even save the videos or pictures to my phone gallery and it pops up the premium feature anytime I try. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not but I think it’s ridiculous I’ll have to pay to save my photos/videos when all I do is make it minimized so it fits better on Instagram and I don’t even use any filters. If this is a big or an error, I’d love some help on fixing it but if saving stuff to my phone is now a premium action I’m going to not use the app anymore. I really love this app so I hope it is just a big. I’ve updated it and still have issues with this.
Well.....
by MetalMomma90 on 2020/01/27 03:18
I just updated this app today and it still crashes big Need new backgrounds and would be great if it didn’t messed up all the time as well as if you have a account, it would save your stuff even when deleting the ap. time. I've had this app forever like maybe 2 years now and never had this many problems with the app. I love this app but man it crashes all the time it's really annoying. I even have to clear all of my recent history of the apps I've been on and restart my iPhone 6 Plus to get it to work a little bit better. I want to give more stars for the background settings it has but until that crash is nearly gone or completely gone, I won't give all 5 stars. Please fix this problem, I don't want to be forced to look into a different app for its awesome Instagram backgrounds 🙏🏼🙏🏼
a little frustrating, but still using it
by Sarah223377 on 2019/07/04 18:10
I really love this app and use it for almost all of my Instagram pictures but my only issue with it is all the paid features that seem to change all the time. Before the subscriptions were a thing and you had to pay to get individual premium filters in packs of 3. I had bought several of them but then subscriptions became a thing and suddenly those filters I paid for were removed and made so that I have to pay $5 a month to use them again? Selecting “restore previous purchase” also does nothing. I still use this app just for the free features but it’s a little frustrating that I basically threw away money on it...
Awesome!
by Bhreigha on 2019/05/24 05:35
I love this app and I’ve been using it for years. It always gets the job done whether it be resizing photos, cropping, or doing other edits! I can crop photos that fit perfectly onto my IG or FB story as well as posts. My photos always look really clean and well done thanks to this app! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because recently they’ve started showcasing more ads and requests for me to upgrade to their Pro option like crazy. After every photo I edit they ask me to upgrade and then show me an ad. Otherwise, like I said, this is a great editing and cropping app that I use religiously before sharing my photos to social media.
You guys really messed up collage
by S. Gallman on 2019/04/07 17:43
Can you guys please revert the collage feature back to how it was?! I absolutely hate how I can’t use this app like I used to. Now that the collage feature is in the main editing portion, it takes way longer for me to do what I need to do. In addition to that, when I try to resize the pictures in collage format, they are saving to my camera roll in completely botched ways! It’s as if the app is cropping 30% of the pics out. I have to find another app to use now. I had been enjoying using this app for years but you guys totally flopped. Can I please get a direct download of the older version from 3 weeks ago??
Was good
by LuciaftExo on 2020/02/27 00:34
I’ve been using this app for years and i love it! It has so many features and free filters, it’s great. But lately you’ve been changing the way the “adjust” section which made my pictures that were already edited get messed up, on the home page they look like what they’re supposed to look like and then when you go in, it changes to a whole different editing. Also, you changed the contrast and the exposure and they can no longer be negative??? I used those negative adjustments for all my pictures and now I can’t and I can’t find another editor to make them look how I want them to. Please fix that asap! I would hate to move editors because I really like this one.
Maddening Auto-Position “Feature”
by External Brain on 2020/02/21 20:08
I love this app and have used it for ages, primarily to make collages. At some point in a previous update a feature was added which “snaps” your photo into place when you’re trying to drag it into position within a collage. I have no idea what criteria is used to determine when the feature activates (blue horizontal and/or vertical positioning guides appear) nor to where the photo snaps, but it is never helpful in my case and constantly pulls the photo away from where I’d carefully dragged it. I’d LOVE to be able to deactivate the function but I’ve had no luck finding a toggle anywhere. This is otherwise a hugely useful multi-featured app but this one massively irritating quality has me searching for a replacement after many years.
Needs Improvement In Link To Google Drive
by Sane Zolt on 2018/09/11 01:45
I love this app. But since the past two days I have noticed that it does not work as fast and responsive as it used to google drive. See I upload my photos to Google Drive & then open Drive in my phone, and open the photos from the Drive app in Instasize but recently it has not been responding & does nothing when I command to open in Instasize. If anything the app has crashed 3/4 times. This has never happened before & I got really disappointed. Now, I have to download them from the Drive app to the phone. Open the photos in the Instasize app, fix the image size then save them again on the phone. Then share them on Instagram, which take a whole lot of time compared to my old method. If you’d fix the issue, my rating will go back to a 4/5 star again. Thanks.
Can't unsubscribe from free trial
by A Trop on 2018/12/13 23:01
I had already purchased the extra filters and the additional editing tools on this app last year as soon as they became available. A few months ago, I upgraded the app to the latest version and it asked me to subscribe for seven days free trial. I assumed that since I had already purchased the full version of the app with added filters and features that this upgrade would give me more features, naturally. I pressed subscribe and I found that I haven't actually gotten any additional features to what I had already had access to on this app. For months now, I I have been getting charged again for the features I already had for over a year. This app is double dipping $$ with loyal customers and it’s not fair. Please refund my money for additional charges. Thank you.
STOLE MY MONEY
by eiblehssmada on 2019/05/03 04:25
I just found out that I have been paying 4.99 every month for an app that hasn’t even been installed on my phone for YEARS!! I probably lost well over $50 for something I had no clue about! I pay for Apple Music (which is also $4.99) on my phone and have seen a charge for that amount billed to iTunes in my bank account but am now realizing that I am paying for both every month, not just Apple Music. Be careful downloading apps that also have premium versions! That’s how I noticed this problem because I was charged $7.99 for a different app that I was not aware of either! I have never left any reviews or comments on anything before but I just found out that I have probably lost over fifty dollars for something I don’t have on my phone so I don’t not want this to happen to anyone else!
Keeps crashing
by chestera001 on 2020/09/13 03:47
I have used this app for 2 years now to edit photos for my business. Last year I purchased the full version and have really enjoyed the added features, but as of lately, the app keeps crashing and kicking me out. I will have just about finished editing and then it will just shut off on me and I have to start all over again. If not fixed soon I will have to cancel my subscription and look for a new app to use because this is starting to interfere with time as its taking me extra time to do edits now
Somewhat useful but predatory
by Ancient Californian Wisdom on 2019/07/10 18:20
I downloaded this app to resize one video clip. It charged me the full $50 year-length subscription with no notification. I found the downloading process in which I evidently naively agreed to this shady and unclear. Admittedly I do find the editing tools, especially resizing, useful and easy. After coming to terms with my own mistake and learning to distrust these things more and read the fine print better, I’ve used it a few times. In the middle of editing photos it has crashed several times and gives me an inescapable window asking me to sign up for “Premium Plus” membership. I don’t want “Premium Plus”, whatever it is, but because I couldn’t escape or collapse the pop-up ad, after several attempts to click somewhere on the screen to get out of it, I have evidently agreed to let them charge me extra money. Guys, if you have a good tool, you don’t have to extort your customers with shady practices. You already have $50 from me. I live in Mexico on $900 a month. You have successfully taken a healthy chunk of my disposable income, you don’t need any more, especially if it’s interfering with me being able to use the thing, so I can simply resize a photo.
Horrible, expensive, poor quality
by Grey927 on 2019/06/18 14:22
This app is a rip off, it takes your money and can not even edit pictures better than the camera roll. If possible I would not even rate this app one star. Yet you still charge me 5 dollars every month when I only had the app for 1 minute and deleted it immediately, cancelling the subscription. I should not be enrolled in the monthly payment fee because I did not use the app for even the “free week”. This company is such a joke and cheap. What a waste. I’m so glad that there are other better apps than this in the app store. The customer service is very poor, I emailed the given address and no one replied. Save your time and exit this app to explore the normal apps in the App Store, the actual function and reason why there is an App Store in the first place.
Not every little app is worth a monthly payment
by _____oversubscribed on 2020/10/21 23:51
I used this app only to put white borders on photos so they can be posted to Instagram without cropping. It is ridiculous that Instagram does not support the aspect ratio of every film camera and most digital cameras. I would be happy to pay a few dollars for this and I’m sure others would also. But this small feature is absolutely not worth a monthly subscription. It seems to me that many developers are becoming confused. People are happy to pay a subscription for Netflix so why not for my app? Because you don’t offer the same level of value. And no, I won’t watch the adds. This app is only useful to me if it is more convenient than spending a few minutes on the computer with photoshop. With adds, it takes longer and is way more annoying than using the computer. If you would offer a simple app that only adds borders for IG, I would pay $5 for it. Once. Or at least I would have done if I hadn’t deleted the app and switched back to photoshop on my Mac. Good luck. PS the app seems to randomly trigger a subscription purchase that the user has to cancel. Are you sure that complies with Apple’s rules?
Why change something that did NOT NEED CHANGED. Rating decrease!
by DriftyyG43 on 2019/12/02 12:45
I have used Instasize for well over a few years and never had a problem with Ads and payment. Now since it was updated it keeps trying too force me !!!! Too pay for it !!! Only thing I use it for is too Mae the pics smaller so they can fit on my Instagram and I am NOT PAYING FOR THAT!!! And now it won’t even let me save the pics into my gallery until I pay for the stupid app! My rate went from 10 stars too now only 1 star... and I am gong too have too be forced too remove the app from my phone and find other one that does the exact same but does not try and force u too pay for it .... I’m not paying 5$ a month for a picture editer that I barely use .... I have kids too worry about...... app is not being deleted .... thanks

Instasize used to be my favorite pic editing app. But these past few weeks the app just closes while I’m editing my pics. I also pay $4.99/month for all features. I recently upgraded to the iPhone 11 ProMax.. so if that’s the problem, please fix the bugs!

Sad about the new grid.
by eleighz on 2020/11/26 18:04
I have been using Instasize for years now! I love the filters and previewing the way a new photo will look on my IG feed. I opened the app up just now after updating to the new iPhone 12, and am seriously sad about the new grid layout. There’s a giant white space between photos. This is so disappointing as I use this app before posting any photos on IG. Please switch back to the old layout! I really don’t want to have to find a new app to use.

Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
Glitches nonstop
by abbie09090 on 2020/11/26 00:09

Bug???

USED to be my favorite app..
by anisha.murdock22 on 2020/11/25 05:01
I have had instasize for MANY years now and have loved it. I even have the premium package of edits so I can have more editing options. Recently, they just updated their app and the instagram layout is GONE ! My photos do not look like the same edits I originally have made them and the grid has changed. It is to the point I do not even want this app anymore. It was my favorite and I used to tell everyone about it. Now I want to delete it. PLEASE CHANGE YOUR GRID BACK TO HOW IG LAYOUT IS! There is a white border running through the photos. Fix it !!!!! -An upset instasize fan :(
Devious trick to make you subscribe!
by Tbc5730 on 2020/11/24 13:19
I’ve used this app multiple times and it works well. However, at some point they added a surprise screen at the end after you’ve saved your edited pic that tricks you into subscribing. When you place your thumb on the screen to change apps, you see that a new “buy it now” pop-up interstitial screen has appeared and you’ve already made a purchase.
They do not respond to cancellation requests

If I could give it 0 stars I would! I can’t even get into the app
by psychicpizza on 2020/11/23 16:28
When I open the app I immediately get asked to sign up for there premium account. Other apps do this but there is a place to exit out of this page. On Instasize I cane exit this. I try to click in the corners where the x button usually is but it doesn’t work. I try to reopen the app and that doesn’t work either. How good of an app can this be if I can’t get in to it. I have to go through the lesgaf documents just to use the editor. Please tell me there is an easy way to do this ? This app is a joke. This company is a joke

This has always been the photo tool I’ve used for years. Today I tried to edit one photo and it crashed 6 times on me. This is a bug that needs to be fixed. It’s beyond frustrating to almost be done 6 different times to then have it crash and you have to restart.

Can’t make a background photo blurry without the app crashing every time I move the toggle to above 50.... disappointing update
So many ads
by Lizazah on 2020/11/18 00:42
This app used to be great, easy to use and straight forward. There used to be some ads with the free option but now there are super annoying ads after EVERY SINGLE time you open or close a photo, window, or edit. Seriously guys?? This SUCKSSS
SO MANY ADS!
by MrBear213 on 2020/11/17 19:35
Not worth using as you’re done ignoring the ads and tap the X and takes you to the App Store where it tries to download!!!!!. There’s better apps out.
App crashes

This app weak boi
Loved this app until..
by Drama1C on 2020/11/16 14:43
I’ve had this app for years ! I absolutely loved it until it began bombarding me with ads every other second. It’s become extremely annoying and has left me to find another app to do the job.. I was ok with one ad while editing but this ..is overkill. Ads are even popping up while I’m in the middle of editing. Frustrating !
Crashes constantly
by Maddie8267 on 2020/11/16 03:08
I can’t even edit a picture anymore without it crashing in the middle and losing all my progress.
It has gotten worse!
by abdhehs on 2020/11/15 23:21
The app is horrible. It won’t let me edit pictures, upload ones I saved. I used to recommend this app a lot but now it’s pretty worthless.
Used to work fine. Not so much anymore
by JayQuis on 2020/11/15 23:16
Been using it for years but now it won’t change the size of any photo or video I try to change the size of. First it did that every other couple photos/videos. Now it was completely stopped working for any I choose to change using the app
Constant crashes
by julia29099 on 2020/11/15 22:20
I PAY for this app and have the most up to date iPhone so there is no excuse for this app to crash every time I use it. I’ve reported this before and tried redownloading the app. I deserve a refund.
Subscription
by Emmyzaj on 2020/11/15 13:34
I was using the app and it shut off during using. Then I got an email saying i subscribed to premium. I can’t figure out how to ask for a refund but I’m not happy. I even have confirm purchases on and it some how did it.
Rip-off!! Charged 4.99 without my consent!!
by Less Money, More Problems on 2020/11/15 05:12
Don't use this app. It will charge you $4.99 without asking you! I want a refund!
Really?
by omfgdoesitmatter?! on 2020/11/15 04:17
Been using this app for years and now I can’t even get past the forceful free trial add. So annoying. No one wants to pay for this crap.
Nmmmm
by kayla_seaton on 2020/11/15 02:32
Will not stop closing anytime i try to use it

New Update
by Michaelarenae on 2020/11/13 19:26
With the new update i lost all of the things i had purchased previously and there is a restore purchase button but does not bring back my filters even after many times of trying. This used to be my go to app for editing but now its trying to make me pay for filters I’ve already bought
Not Good Anymore
by ChrisB228 on 2020/11/13 19:07
This app has been my go-to for years and it’s sad to see it has lost its way. It’s nothing but non-stop ads (that you can’t skip through!) and constantly begging for subscribers. I miss the good old days of legitimate free apps that didn’t scam you.
Obnoxious Decisions
by Anthony Park on 2020/11/12 21:32
This is a decent app that is crippled by the obnoxious decisions the developer has taken to monetize it. The app has steadily become more and more invasive in how it uses advertising and tricks to get users to become a premium subscriber. Not too long ago, the app would show you an ad very occasionally. It was annoying, but I suppose I understood it was part of their business model for non paying users and I begrudgingly sucked it up. Now, the app shows you an extremely annoying ad almost every few steps through using it to the point that it's now unusable. What's worse, and I find totally unforgivable, is that it attempts to trick you into subscribing by showing the subscription payment screen at the point where you are trying to save an edited image to your camera roll. It's like a last final attempt to get something out of the user by whatever method they can before they likely close the app. My humble suggestion to the developer: treat your customers, even the non-paying ones with respect. A free user is a user that you should try to impress with what you can offer, not annoy into submission. They will be far more likely to subscribe to a service that offers value to them rather than capitulating to irritating tactics or deception. Don't you want to be proud of your creation? Secondly, the subscription at ~$60 year is far too expensive for what the app offers. By comparison, this is 50% of the price Adobe charges for their photography creative suite, which clearly is a far, far bigger proposition. I used the app very occasionally for one feature only which it did well (adding borders to images). Clearly this isn't worth the $60/year, but there is no other option other than this or be irritated at every stage of use. If there was a reasonable alternative, even a mid-tier with not all of the features, I'd likely have subscribed. As it is, I've had enough and will now be deleting it. The border tool I used to use has been changed to produce much smaller borders, so that's of no use now anyway. If the developer dropped their underhand tactics and priced the app reasonably, I suspect they would have far happier users and far more of them. It's a real shame to me that the developer has chosen the opposite path. Update in response to the developer's reply: I have no issue with the premium subscription, other than thinking it could be better value or have a middle tier - but that's your call of course. What I do have issue is where you try to trick the user into subscribing by throwing up the payment confirmation screen when saving a photo. Also, the ads can only be closed after they have played and pop up with such frequency that makes the app unusable, as noted by many other reviews too. Again, treat your users with respect and they will almost certainly give it back to you.
SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!
by deejee23 on 2020/11/12 01:42
This app is a scam! I’m being charged for ACCIDENTALLY getting a premium subscription! They’re doing this on purpose! It’s supposed to be a “3 day free trial then you’ll be charged” why are you charging me immediately???
Too expensive.
by J0nathan! on 2020/11/12 01:40
Give me a break. $5 for “pro” features a MONTH!? Application is sleek and we’ll designed though.
Purchases
by Jfihdhdididhhjjdidjdi4747 on 2020/11/11 22:58
Always popping up add to purchase stuff on the app any time you try to save your photo or anything. Very annoying.
used to be my fave
by savage 언니 on 2020/11/11 20:27
I used to always use this app for my editing but ever since a few months back every time I open it it just closes I tried deleting the app and re-downloading it and it doesn’t even open anymore so I’ll have to use a new app now :/
Confused
by dmmmmm12345 on 2020/11/11 04:31
I have a new phone and is downloading instasize. Why do I have to pay for it now?
I loved this app but..
by nikkirocks_ on 2020/11/10 23:10
I really loved this app I have had it for years and it was free this last week I updated my phone to the 12 and re-downloaded the app and now it’s asking me for money. It’s such a shame
Goodbye
by Melvin Thomas on 2020/11/10 22:20
I’ve used this app for years and now I’m about to delete it. The ads have just become too much.
Glitchy
by taymccool1 on 2020/11/10 20:49
Won’t let me save pics once edited
Lame
by pimpstickjones on 2020/11/10 16:19
Seems like I can’t use it without a subscription?? Idk when that started but it’s useless to me now
Used to be good
by AliceAmberlight on 2020/11/10 04:48
This app used to be my go to for all my Instagram posts, but now it’s constantly shoving ads in my face and trying to get me to accidentally tap the payment fingerprint button once I finish editing a photo. It’s ridiculous. If I wanted to pay for premium I would, don’t try to trick me into paying, that’s slimy. I’ll be looking for a new editing app for my page.
Crash issues
by Wtfuuuuuuuuuh on 2020/11/10 04:48
The retouch feature always crashes the app after you finalize your retouch edit. Fix this please.
BUG SPOTTED IDK IF JUST ME
by Geoavssoebdoan on 2020/11/10 04:14
I paid for the cheapest pack so I could edit my pictures, well every time I go to whiten my teeth on a picture or something, when I hit finish to go edit some more my screen is white. Anyone else have this problem??
Upset!
by nxjcncndkd on 2020/11/10 03:19
I had this app not long ago and was able to use it fine (limited filters, some ads, etc). I just downloaded it again and it won’t even let me start the app without making a payment. I find it very annoying!!
Pretty upset
by __chamberlain on 2020/11/10 02:25
I’ve been using Instasize for the longest but randomly when I open the app it just takes me back to my home screen. I’ve deleted & reinstalled but nothing works & I’m pretty bummed out because I had a lot of pics on there saved :/ bad idea on my part

This was my fave app
by jess_iiii on 2020/11/10 01:00
I loved using it. Then I upgraded it today. And ever since it literally shuts off everytime I click it. And I haven’t heard back on getting help for it
Nice features, too much crashing
by ReviewBabeXoXo on 2020/11/09 21:32
I like the editing options and features this app includes. One thing that is extremely frustrating is how often it crashes. I’ll be in the middle of editing a photo and it just closes out and I have to restart, then it happens over and over again. I’ve tried deleting the app and downloading it again but the same issue continues to occur. Often it’s with the same editing tools - touch up tools for example.
Glitch galore
by Dre-K on 2020/11/09 15:11
Filters and creative edit capabilities are great but the app itself needs serious technical attention. I have to “restore” my purchase almost everyday or I lose Premium (even though I’m on a monthly subscription) and often times the app freezes while doing so and I have to delete it (along with all my photos) and reinstall. There must be others with equivalent features that aren’t as difficult to manage.
Terrible
by TraeStelzer on 2020/11/09 00:14
You cannot save the photo you edit and the app will randomly close and make you start over.
Used to love
by T10445 on 2020/11/08 20:30
i used to love instasize but stop shoving premium down my throat! i cant even ex out when i get to the main page. i cant use it at all because the premium ad won’t go away! 2/10 for me now. annoying ads and useless.
Instasize Review
by Gweenween on 2020/11/08 16:43
I would actually give it a 4.5/5 but I really do love the app & all of the features. I’ve had instasize for years and so far I’ve like every update.
Too many ads to be functional
by SmellyJessy on 2020/11/08 14:56
What a ridiculous app and waste of time. So many ads, each of which is close to a minute long which gets incredibly annoying if you accidentally click the wrong picture to upload for editing and have to wait 2 minutes total to start editing. Swiftly deleting this app. Btw, whatever you advertise this aggressively makes me not wanna buy or download it out of spite so good work!
Fonts and text are near impossible
by LeathyGreens on 2020/11/08 02:46
Have been using this for years. I’ve been trying to get a short paragraph of font to work with an image and all sorts of bugs are presenting themselves. I ended up purchasing another app. Some of the bugs- when I want to edit the text that I’ve written, I cannot see the top line (it appears behind the iphone center speaker/lense). It would be good to be able to control the way the font falls on a line too. Remember we are on here working around images, So sometimes we need only 2 words on a line, other times we have the space to use 5 words. Let us control that. This is a photo and text app.
Disappointed
by CrisHinrichs on 2020/11/08 00:15
I’m using this app long time already but now I can’t save any images to my camera roll. It’s doesn’t work anymore and one more thing, I restarted my phone, I downloaded the app again but now I have to pay for it.
Do NOT buy
by hohohappyholidays on 2020/11/07 19:02
Horrible. Glitchy. Was unable to use it and paid for nothing.
Used to be so much better
by QuicheDr on 2020/11/07 02:05
Not to be that guy but the video ads get frozen and don’t even allow you to open the picture settings to open them
You HAVE to get rid of the pop-up premium ad
by unwillingpremium on 2020/11/07 00:15
I’ve used this app so much through the years but I was just cheated out of 5$ because after downloading my photo the premium ad popped up and my phone automatically took my thumbprint and charged me.
Buggy
by Bryce Wimberly on 2020/11/06 15:49
I don’t know if it’s just me because it works for everyone else it seems like. But I can’t save and export photos. I’ve tried redownloading but it didn’t fix it.

by sandy-chan on 2020/11/06 10:22
Now there’s an ad literally every time you edit a photo. I get trying to monetize but this is just too much. My time is worth more than these obnoxious ads. I’ve used this app for years and I’m deleting 👎

by skee-oop on 2020/11/06 06:08
I used to love Instasize. I used it for everything. I got a new phone and decided to download the app. With whatever update, it’s requiring me to pay for premium. Where did that come from?
Degrades pictures
by Makaylove on 2020/11/06 03:52
Have used this app for years and now when I upload photos the quality of my photos degrades. Very frustrating! I have tried the HD and Max settings and nothing is helping. I just want the pictures I upload to the app to look like the ones in my camera roll!

And it won’t let me click on support to email you guys! Please help I currently have a premium subscription with you guys but if not fixed I will just cancel and delete can it be fixed?
love it, but ugh
by Maddiebaddie_cheerandtumblr on 2018/08/08 01:26
i’ve used instasize for YEARS now, before they ever had the subscription deal, and before you had to make an account for instasize. i used it so much that i purchased about 3-5 different filter packs about a year or two ago. but recently, the developers changed to a monthly subscription instead of buying certain packs. when they did that, i lost all the filters i bought. i would gladly get the subscription, but i already spent about $10+ on filters i used constantly that were just taken from me, and i’m also a teen who doesn’t have a job, so i can’t exactly always have the money for said subscription. i tried emailing the company about this, because it really irritates me that i spent money......on basically nothing now, but it wouldn’t go through, in a way that makes me think the email listed in the app description doesn’t work. i want to know if these filters can somehow be restored or something, because i even hit “restore purchases” and nothing happened. idk if it’s because i didn’t have an instasize account or what, but it’s really, really frustrating. ***edit: problem solved!!! amazing customer service, seriously it’s unreal, and it’s still the best app i’ve ever used for editing !!!
This is a rip-off
by Madi is lit on 2019/01/18 01:13
I installed instasize a very long time ago because I could edit videos as well as pictures using cool filters and editing tools. I do remember that I had problems with ads in the past and that I was working with a very limited editing and filter selection, which made me extremely sad. So I deleted the app. It resurfaced on my dash because some of my friends started downloading this app. It was advertised so well that I thought of getting this app again. I was offered over 80 filters and cool editing tools and I could not believe it. So I downloaded it and I instantly regret it. In order to use the app to its full creative extent, I have to pay unnecessary money. I have an even more limited amount of filters than when I first downloaded the app, and I can barely even get through editing a picture without so many ads popping up. Honestly, it’s like the app is infested with ads. I would have considered the continual use of it bad there been an upfront price I could pay instead of a subscription. This ain’t some high end product deserving of even considering a subscription. It’s best to just stick with VSCO because there at you least have a good amount of filters, there aren’t ads, and no subscription. They have options to purchase filters and the prices are manageable. This app has disappointed me a second time and I won’t let there be a third time. A waste of space on my phone.
Refuse to pay monthly for an editing app
by only here for the reviews on 2020/05/07 12:15
I had always used Instasize to edit all of my pictures, it was my all time favorite editing app. Mainly because I loved that I could use the app to adjust the size of any picture to fit my lock screen. I also only used the same few filters and features so the free version was perfect for me. Although the constant premium adds were a tad bit annoying because they popped up every time I tried to save my pictures, but they were bearable because the app used to be quick and easy to use. However, the app became increasingly more annoying, time consuming and harder to use because of all the premium adds. It got to the point to were I couldn’t save any photos because I “had” to upgrade to premium, and I refuse to pay a monthly prescription when I only use three of the features. I then came to the conclusion there MUST be a glitch with my favorite editing app so I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and boy I was wrong. Now I cannot even use the app without going premium, it offers a 3 day free trial and then it’s a monthly prescription. Since when did instasize become so money oriented that a free version, even if it was ad infested and offered very limited features, isn’t even offered? Very disappointed and will be looking for a new editor because I refuse to pay for three basic editing features.
Not sure if they are trying to scam people or if it’s a glitch
by Annbanan122 on 2020/05/03 05:59
So I was already pretty upset that one of my favorite editing apps took away some features and started asking for money. Usually when I save a picture an add to buy premium will pop up and I’ll just exit out and save to camera roll, no problem. As of recently when I got to save my picture the add that pops up when I got to save my picture will be invisible, that or the save to camera roll button has been changed to PURCHASE premium. When tapping save to camera roll it will ask for my finger print to buy premium. On multiple occasions I have almost pressed the home button to exit out. Which would have then purchased premium without my consent. I’ve used the app so much that when I do a quick edit I just zoom through the steps to save my picture so I’ve come very close to accidentally buying premium multiple times, and honestly I can’t afford premium at all, nor would I ever want to pay for it. I really hope it’s just a bug, because it would be a pretty sketchy thing for them to do to get people to accidentally buy premium!
Awesome
by Freedomgirl44 on 2017/12/23 01:21
Honestly I love using this app! It gives me the option of using soo many things for free! I would however love if their were more backgrounds available... for example like a birthday background or a celebration background for those special pictures that you want to post about someone else's birthday or even yours! THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME BACKGROUND!! Keep up the good work! ***UPDATED MY APP SO NEEDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW*** I do love that the creators of this app took my advice on adding Birthday backgrounds that you can customize and new backgrounds for certain holidays. I’m disappointed that they took that and decided you can only add those certain filters if you pay for the app for every month or if you do the trial. I remember that you used to be able to download them and use them for the holidays and they would disappear after a certain time. Oh well. As much as I love this app because it’s so easy to use it looks like I might need to look into a new app for my pictures. It was good while it lasted. Thank you for considering my ideas though. It’s nice to know that their are people that listen to one persons feedback.
Was a great app
by thetashalee on 2018/10/09 01:50
Like other reviewers, I’ve been using this app for years to edit pictures. And now since the most recent update, I noticed one of my favorite (free) filters was gone. Then I realized nearly half of the free filters were removed! This was such a great free app to use, and I always recommended it to people. I tried the premium free trial before, and I even paid for it for a few months because I liked the extra features. But I decided that I didn’t need to be spending the extra money, and would continue to just use the free features because they were enough for me. But now it seems like InstaSize is only in it to get money out of people. Rather than providing a great free app for people to quickly edit pictures on the go (and choose to pay for the premium services/add-ons at their OWN convenience), it’s now a never-ending stream of ads trying to convince you to pay for their premium service, all while slowly taking away more “free” features, until you have no choice but to pay. 👎🏻
What free membership?
by Joreeses on 2019/07/02 14:29
I’ve been using this app since I have had an instagram to edit my photos, make them square without cropping, and make collages. I loved this app for these features. I have never bought any of the filter packs or paid for a premium membership since I’m not an instagram model or have any reason to put too much effort into editing pictures. However, this app still advertises the presence of a free membership, but does not seem to allow even basic use without premium membership. I have only been trying to use this app to place photos on a square, white background so I could post them without cropping. Whenever I try to download the image, a pop up comes up advertising the premium membership, but there is no way to skip, continue, or otherwise leave this add without closing out of the app. My question is: why advertise a free, basic membership but not allow users to actually use basic functionality? I have been using and have loved this app for years, but it looks like I’ll have to find a different one.
Subscription button scam
by Lacey Kingry on 2019/04/22 13:56
I typically only use this app to resize my photos for IG. None of the fancy filters or borders just a plain white background so there’s zero need for me to purchase the subscription. However, I uninstalled the app today because they make the subscription button THE BIGGEST BUTTON on the page when you first open the app. When I accidentally clicked it today and then tried to just hit my home button to get out of the app my fingerprint and payment was approved and BOOM! I had a subscription without even opting for one 🙃 if it wasn’t for the 7 day trial period my card would’ve been charged before I could’ve cancelled the subscription. Seems to me with it being the biggest of the two buttons on the screen that they’re banking on people accidentally hitting it and signing up for a subscription that they didn’t even care for. I understand the need to advertise for it to make a profit but don’t be skeezy about it. If I could report this app I would and I’ll be using a different app for my resizing needs from now on.
Used to be great
by adria1130 on 2020/10/10 23:03
I used to love this app and it did exactly what I needed, just sized down my photos, I never use the filters or text or any of the other stuff available but it was cool that it was offered and then out of no where these ads just kept playing before and after every picture edit, and I’m not talking about 5 second ads these go from 30 seconds to a minute and a half every time, it takes longer to get through the ad then it doesn’t for me to make my picture the size I want. And I get it you want people to pay for your app but the price is not worth what you actually get, especially if you are only using it for the sizing and nothing else, personally I suggest stop being greedy and those who need it will pay for it or honestly make it a one time purchase of $4.99 because what you actually offer isn’t worth a monthly subscription, not when we can just go find another app to do the same thing that won’t smother us in pointless ads that don’t “force” us to buy just make us uninstall
HATE THIS.
by Luvdisgameeeee!101 on 2019/04/25 22:30
Let me start off by saying I’ve used Instasize for at least the last 6-7 years maybe even more. When I discovered it I fell in LOVE. I was able to edit photos, make collages, easy handling and it was completely wonderful. I NEVER EVER HAD A COMPLAINT. That is until NOW. The update is completely and utterly trash!!!!! DO NOT DO IT. I used to be able to make collages and now for some awesome reason the photos before I hit to save magically change and all are distorted. Also I hate that I lost trim and have to make it myself. Whoever thought of this genius idea was a flipping IDIOT. I now will be spending money on other apps because this one seems to have lost the flipping bar. I’ve told hundreds of people to use this app, and now I’ll make sure to tell everyone not to. It’s BS. I’ve lost a lot of my filters, I can’t make collages, and I lost the design that brought me to insta. HORRIBLE. Horrible. HORRRIBLE. Y’all see what happened to Snapchat when they changed, it’s now back to normal. Hopefully whatever idiot you have building this crap app fixes it. If not by instasize wont wanna see ya EVER AGAIN.
Purchased restore
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/10/24 04:26
It is sad when companies promise something and don’t keep there promise. I purchased the no add function before they went to subscription as I loved the app for there ability to resize pictures. I do not use filters at all. Up to recently, I would still mark the app at 4 stars as I had no adds. Now that is impossible. Every time I resize a photo it gives me adds. Restore does no good. Not sure what else I can do but tell the world as they don’t want to fix the problem. I tried to contact them but got no help. Why should I pay for premium to get the one thing I purchased and the only thing I use. The no add function. They told me that if I sent copy of receipt they would fix the add problem. So much for promises. Even giving them the receipt does not work as they said they would not do this after I sent the receipt. They are not honoring there promise to me when I originally purchased no adds from them. In addition it still says you can purchase no adds but my purchase is not being honored. This makes no sense to me.
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.
Shady app
by Lyssa773! on 2020/06/09 20:40
This app used to be great. I assume with the rise of “influencers” they’ve decided to start charging per month. I needed to edit one photo and it says you get a free 3 day trial and after that it charges you (from other apps, that’s true. Only after the free trial they charge). I clicked okay, completed my photo, exited, and immediately got onto my Apple store to cancel the automatic subscription because I knew I wouldn’t remember to cancel it if I waited. Later on I got onto my credit card app and saw that I had *already* been charged! And right now, I just tried to get on to clarify why I was charged 5 something because I swore up and down that the cheapest one was 4 something, and they didn’t let you choose (they have like 10 different subscriptions to choose from) but they just had one button that mentioned subscriptions so I clicked it and it SUBSCRIBED ME AGAIN! this app is absolutely ridiculous and shady beyond belief. So now I’m sure I’ll get her another 5 dollar charge.
Glitchy and So Unneeded
by VideoGameRatings on 2019/12/21 13:47
This app is no other than glitchy but unneeded it self. We all have a edit button in the photos app. Just choose a photo click edit and bam. I know in the older iPads and phones they have a pretty crappy edit section and you can only crop the photo and pick a filter, but my brother finally offered me over a iPhone 11 so now I have one and the edit section is basically the whole Instasize app. This is honestly so disappointing. Even when you have this app, the app is still glitchy WITH THE NEWEST IPHONE. I thought again this was just me from way back to the iPad mini situation but this time it’s not me. It’s the app, and if you have a good edit section in your photos app, this is just a waste of storage. Also, I have Instagram and after you make a photo you have the options to save to camera roll, Instagram or share. When I click the Instagram button it rarely uploads to Instagram. Fix this or your getting another 1 star.
AWESOME APP!
by Abigail Villena on 2017/11/10 18:03
I have used several apps for editing and or making collages or editing videos but this is the best one thus far. It was introduced to me by my best friend who is a Design Director for Tiger text. She also recommended I try to become an Ambassador as well which I did and got accepted into the program. I love how the app has so many options yet so organized and easy to navigate through. As a Registered Nurse I am obligated to chart every shift and use a phone app called Mobile Heart beat which are pretty out of date compared to my millenial standard of how technology works. When I’m outside of work and come across apps that are easy to navigate through and can do multiple things I’m all for it. Thank you InstaSize!
Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
Currently Disappointed
by BLKJRF on 2018/01/29 17:47
I have happily used InstaSize for several years, and have really appreciated being able to upload my full size photos to Instagram (vs having to edit them to a square). While I rarely used InstaSize filters, the free app option suited me just fine. However, starting a few weeks ago I can no longer upload my edited photos to Instagram - the photo is sent with all editing lost and the full size photo option gone. I’m hoping this is just a temporary glitch as I will be disappointed to look for a new app comparable to the previous version of InstaSize, and one that does not cost $5 each month.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
The editing part is great but...
by jdbayskbfbd on 2020/06/30 18:46
So I love the editing part it makes my pictures look so much cooler and prettier, but a few minutes into editing, the app just closes. I am pretty mad about that because I worked pretty hard on it and it just deleted all of my progress, but I decided to start again. Within even less time than the last time it exited it did it again! I was super confused and tried one more time, and sure enough it exited. I was very annoyed as the picture was looking very cool, so I tried doing it as fast as I could and within the first 45 secs it just exits and I still try to make cool pictures but I usually never have enough time to make it better, so I think I will just take my business else where, as you should too if it does that to you.
AWSOME!!!!!!!!!
by so so so helpful on 2020/01/02 23:54
OMGosh , I just love this app it’s so so fun unlike some people I love to type stuff on the pictures and decorate them to .I also like how you get to choose a background for The picture however I don’t like how SOME of the backgrounds and tents you have to pay for. I do like how they give you just a couple that are free. I also like when you go to the typing to type stuff on the picture you can pic whatever color you would like none of them you have to pay for. I also like how you can have a account on there. The only reason I’m giving this app 5 stars is because it doesn’t make you pay for things right away you can exit out of it and just use the free stuff. Unlike other people I can’t buy stuff on apps I would get in trouble with my parents. Thanks again for reading!!! Have a merry late Christmas & ......... HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!! 🎊 IT’s.... 2020 Yayay
Could be the best
by unclenat on 2020/10/04 10:02
But instead it’s just frustrating. Constant image corrupting, after hours of painstaking work. Click’n drag and pinch’n zoom features are intuitive and amazing in theory, but in practice you spend all this time perfecting the layout only to pinch’n zoom one aspect of it but instead pinch’n zoom the image or some other feature that messes up all of your hard work. Try and type in an email address, it will force it into two lines no matter what you do… this has got to be the most frustrating feature. Having no control over a simple line of text and when it goes to the next line. I could go on, I keep using it because I have an actually found an app that is more intuitive or that has as much potential, except I’ve been using this up for so many years and it just gets more frustrating with every update.
Cool app BUT it could have been awesome
by PhilWil on 2018/12/25 15:48
This app is definitely for those who take pics or vids for Instagram. For those who do it for fun it's a cool addition to other apps. For those who are more people users, subscribing to the monthly is worth it ONLY if you want quick and have a higher level of color grading video files. BUT!!! It really needs more if you are going to subscribe. Instagram had long form photos and videos but it's actually pretty tough to edit that way in the app or have collages that are 4x5 or 3x5 long. Add that and it becomes worth it because now it takes advantage of more Instagram photo and video sizes. If I was the developer on this I would also think about adding something like what Swipable has, again taking advantage of what Instagram offers like multiple pics on one post (now capped at 10 currently). This app should have something for every feature Instagram allows to post. Heck maybe even scheduled posting. Do all of this and you will have more subscribers you know what to deal with. For now only three stars until the addition of long form or tall photos and videos are added to the app and to collages.
So many ads
by gzurio on 2020/09/03 21:12
I’ve been using this app for years and while back then it was one of my favorites, lately it has started to become one of my least used. In the past I purchased many filters and packs/features. Unfortunately they introduced the subscription model and all of my filters that I purchased were no longer available. I don’t use the app on a regular basis as I once did so I can’t justify the subscription. I just use the free version for when I need to edit a few photos. Well along with that free version comes so many ads it’s become unbearable. They even try to fool you into buying the subscriptions!! I miss the old version of just pay once for what you need...but that wouldn’t bring in tons of money I guess. My suggestion is to find another app to suit your needs.
Irritating but useful
by ffhuyty hkugb on 2019/05/27 19:37
InstaSize went from a simple way to make your larger photos fit perfectly into a collage, or instagram.... to annoying... It's so difficult to select and arrange photos into the collage. You can't rearrange the photos once they are randomly selected into the collage and these pop up ads are ridiculous. I don't too much mind the ones that give you an option to "X" out of them, it today I had one that wouldn't allow me to exit. I had to close out of my collage app and then start all over. With that being said,’it’s the easiest app to use to format Your picture size for the appropriate social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
Get full size pix for IG
by Mishka the ferret on 2018/09/27 19:45
****** Re-reviewed You used to get full size pix for IG. But lately it doesn’t put your full photos in like it used to. It’s now cropping my photos unlike it used to even when I Change the size of the photo. It’s very disappointing as this was a very large part is why I used this program and its for my modeling page! The next button has now been moved so I can use the program. But the fact is you’re supposed to be the program to not crop the IG photos and now you are that program you need to have design for all sizes of photos like you used to. You barely have had new backgrounds in years and it’s getting to be a very sad app. I’m now Looking for a new app just like this one only better now and that makes me sad this was a solid app for a long time. I had actually wanted to be an ambassador. And now you couldn’t pay me to do it!
Deceitful; I used for 15 mins, canceled, but still got charged $50
by VandaMeraki on 2019/07/23 20:10
Hi guys- I downloaded the free trial period a couple days ago; within 15 mins knew I wasn’t in love in the app, so went through the steps to cancel the subscription (no, not just delete the app, but I went into iTunes to cancel the subscription); today I see a charge from Apple saying Instasize charged me almost $50. I contacted Apple support today; they said they wish they could refund my c/c but due to some reason which they cannot even explain to me (they just kept sending me a link to read a million fine print). They said if I contact Instasize, you will just refer me back to Apple. This is unacceptable. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume there is a major glitch in your system right now, but I absolutely want my money back! I used your app for not even 15 minutes and now you/Apple are locking me into a year-long commitment. I never even authorized the dang thing to charge me. If it’s not truly a free trial, then you shouldn’t advertise it as such. I never would have downloaded it in the first place if I had known this would waste so much time and energy. Please revolve this ASAP or I will just have to get my credit card to block your charges! Thank you.
Having issues
by 36467432456788876 on 2018/10/24 00:49
I do really like the app and I’ve been using it forever, but for some reason I can’t even save the videos or pictures to my phone gallery and it pops up the premium feature anytime I try. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not but I think it’s ridiculous I’ll have to pay to save my photos/videos when all I do is make it minimized so it fits better on Instagram and I don’t even use any filters. If this is a big or an error, I’d love some help on fixing it but if saving stuff to my phone is now a premium action I’m going to not use the app anymore. I really love this app so I hope it is just a big. I’ve updated it and still have issues with this.
Well.....
by MetalMomma90 on 2020/01/27 03:18
I just updated this app today and it still crashes big Need new backgrounds and would be great if it didn’t messed up all the time as well as if you have a account, it would save your stuff even when deleting the ap. time. I've had this app forever like maybe 2 years now and never had this many problems with the app. I love this app but man it crashes all the time it's really annoying. I even have to clear all of my recent history of the apps I've been on and restart my iPhone 6 Plus to get it to work a little bit better. I want to give more stars for the background settings it has but until that crash is nearly gone or completely gone, I won't give all 5 stars. Please fix this problem, I don't want to be forced to look into a different app for its awesome Instagram backgrounds 🙏🏼🙏🏼
a little frustrating, but still using it
by Sarah223377 on 2019/07/04 18:10
I really love this app and use it for almost all of my Instagram pictures but my only issue with it is all the paid features that seem to change all the time. Before the subscriptions were a thing and you had to pay to get individual premium filters in packs of 3. I had bought several of them but then subscriptions became a thing and suddenly those filters I paid for were removed and made so that I have to pay $5 a month to use them again? Selecting “restore previous purchase” also does nothing. I still use this app just for the free features but it’s a little frustrating that I basically threw away money on it...
Awesome!
by Bhreigha on 2019/05/24 05:35
I love this app and I’ve been using it for years. It always gets the job done whether it be resizing photos, cropping, or doing other edits! I can crop photos that fit perfectly onto my IG or FB story as well as posts. My photos always look really clean and well done thanks to this app! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because recently they’ve started showcasing more ads and requests for me to upgrade to their Pro option like crazy. After every photo I edit they ask me to upgrade and then show me an ad. Otherwise, like I said, this is a great editing and cropping app that I use religiously before sharing my photos to social media.
You guys really messed up collage
by S. Gallman on 2019/04/07 17:43
Can you guys please revert the collage feature back to how it was?! I absolutely hate how I can’t use this app like I used to. Now that the collage feature is in the main editing portion, it takes way longer for me to do what I need to do. In addition to that, when I try to resize the pictures in collage format, they are saving to my camera roll in completely botched ways! It’s as if the app is cropping 30% of the pics out. I have to find another app to use now. I had been enjoying using this app for years but you guys totally flopped. Can I please get a direct download of the older version from 3 weeks ago??
Was good
by LuciaftExo on 2020/02/27 00:34
I’ve been using this app for years and i love it! It has so many features and free filters, it’s great. But lately you’ve been changing the way the “adjust” section which made my pictures that were already edited get messed up, on the home page they look like what they’re supposed to look like and then when you go in, it changes to a whole different editing. Also, you changed the contrast and the exposure and they can no longer be negative??? I used those negative adjustments for all my pictures and now I can’t and I can’t find another editor to make them look how I want them to. Please fix that asap! I would hate to move editors because I really like this one.
Maddening Auto-Position “Feature”
by External Brain on 2020/02/21 20:08
I love this app and have used it for ages, primarily to make collages. At some point in a previous update a feature was added which “snaps” your photo into place when you’re trying to drag it into position within a collage. I have no idea what criteria is used to determine when the feature activates (blue horizontal and/or vertical positioning guides appear) nor to where the photo snaps, but it is never helpful in my case and constantly pulls the photo away from where I’d carefully dragged it. I’d LOVE to be able to deactivate the function but I’ve had no luck finding a toggle anywhere. This is otherwise a hugely useful multi-featured app but this one massively irritating quality has me searching for a replacement after many years.
Needs Improvement In Link To Google Drive
by Sane Zolt on 2018/09/11 01:45
I love this app. But since the past two days I have noticed that it does not work as fast and responsive as it used to google drive. See I upload my photos to Google Drive & then open Drive in my phone, and open the photos from the Drive app in Instasize but recently it has not been responding & does nothing when I command to open in Instasize. If anything the app has crashed 3/4 times. This has never happened before & I got really disappointed. Now, I have to download them from the Drive app to the phone. Open the photos in the Instasize app, fix the image size then save them again on the phone. Then share them on Instagram, which take a whole lot of time compared to my old method. If you’d fix the issue, my rating will go back to a 4/5 star again. Thanks.
Can't unsubscribe from free trial
by A Trop on 2018/12/13 23:01
I had already purchased the extra filters and the additional editing tools on this app last year as soon as they became available. A few months ago, I upgraded the app to the latest version and it asked me to subscribe for seven days free trial. I assumed that since I had already purchased the full version of the app with added filters and features that this upgrade would give me more features, naturally. I pressed subscribe and I found that I haven't actually gotten any additional features to what I had already had access to on this app. For months now, I I have been getting charged again for the features I already had for over a year. This app is double dipping $$ with loyal customers and it’s not fair. Please refund my money for additional charges. Thank you.
STOLE MY MONEY
by eiblehssmada on 2019/05/03 04:25
I just found out that I have been paying 4.99 every month for an app that hasn’t even been installed on my phone for YEARS!! I probably lost well over $50 for something I had no clue about! I pay for Apple Music (which is also $4.99) on my phone and have seen a charge for that amount billed to iTunes in my bank account but am now realizing that I am paying for both every month, not just Apple Music. Be careful downloading apps that also have premium versions! That’s how I noticed this problem because I was charged $7.99 for a different app that I was not aware of either! I have never left any reviews or comments on anything before but I just found out that I have probably lost over fifty dollars for something I don’t have on my phone so I don’t not want this to happen to anyone else!
Keeps crashing
by chestera001 on 2020/09/13 03:47
I have used this app for 2 years now to edit photos for my business. Last year I purchased the full version and have really enjoyed the added features, but as of lately, the app keeps crashing and kicking me out. I will have just about finished editing and then it will just shut off on me and I have to start all over again. If not fixed soon I will have to cancel my subscription and look for a new app to use because this is starting to interfere with time as its taking me extra time to do edits now
Somewhat useful but predatory
by Ancient Californian Wisdom on 2019/07/10 18:20
I downloaded this app to resize one video clip. It charged me the full $50 year-length subscription with no notification. I found the downloading process in which I evidently naively agreed to this shady and unclear. Admittedly I do find the editing tools, especially resizing, useful and easy. After coming to terms with my own mistake and learning to distrust these things more and read the fine print better, I’ve used it a few times. In the middle of editing photos it has crashed several times and gives me an inescapable window asking me to sign up for “Premium Plus” membership. I don’t want “Premium Plus”, whatever it is, but because I couldn’t escape or collapse the pop-up ad, after several attempts to click somewhere on the screen to get out of it, I have evidently agreed to let them charge me extra money. Guys, if you have a good tool, you don’t have to extort your customers with shady practices. You already have $50 from me. I live in Mexico on $900 a month. You have successfully taken a healthy chunk of my disposable income, you don’t need any more, especially if it’s interfering with me being able to use the thing, so I can simply resize a photo.
Horrible, expensive, poor quality

This app is a rip off, it takes your money and can not even edit pictures better than the camera roll. If possible I would not even rate this app one star. Yet you still charge me 5 dollars every month when I only had the app for 1 minute and deleted it immediately, cancelling the subscription. I should not be enrolled in the monthly payment fee because I did not use the app for even the “free week”. This company is such a joke and cheap. What a waste. I’m so glad that there are other better apps than this in the app store. The customer service is very poor, I emailed the given address and no one replied. Save your time and exit this app to explore the normal apps in the App Store, the actual function and reason why there is an App Store in the first place.
Not every little app is worth a monthly payment

I used this app only to put white borders on photos so they can be posted to Instagram without cropping. It is ridiculous that Instagram does not support the aspect ratio of every film camera and most digital cameras. I would be happy to pay a few dollars for this and I’m sure others would also. But this small feature is absolutely not worth a monthly subscription. It seems to me that many developers are becoming confused. People are happy to pay a subscription for Netflix so why not for my app? Because you don’t offer the same level of value. And no, I won’t watch the adds. This app is only useful to me if it is more convenient than spending a few minutes on the computer with photoshop. With adds, it takes longer and is way more annoying than using the computer. If you would offer a simple app that only adds borders for IG, I would pay $5 for it. Once. Or at least I would have done if I hadn’t deleted the app and switched back to photoshop on my Mac. Good luck. PS the app seems to randomly trigger a subscription purchase that the user has to cancel. Are you sure that complies with Apple’s rules?
Why change something that did NOT NEED CHANGED. Rating decrease!

I have used Instasize for well over a few years and never had a problem with Ads and payment. Now since it was updated it keeps trying too force me !!!! Too pay for it !!! Only thing I use it for is too Mae the pics smaller so they can fit on my Instagram and I am NOT PAYING FOR THAT!!! And now it won’t even let me save the pics into my gallery until I pay for the stupid app! My rate went from 10 stars too now only 1 star... and I am gong too have too be forced too remove the app from my phone and find other one that does the exact same but does not try and force u too pay for it .... I’m not paying 5$ a month for a picture editer that I barely use .... I have kids too worry about...... app is not being deleted .... thanks
