Scam

They offered you a 3 days grial and they charge you immediately. Be aware please!

Amazing
Cannot use app anymore?
by FallOutBouFangirl on 2021/05/12 00:38
This app was once extremely useful. Now I literally cannot use it. Every time I open it, it forces me to sign up for a free trial, which I don’t want to do. There is no decline button. You are losing people because your app is literally inaccessible.
Garbage
by Zachattttttack on 2021/05/11 19:41
Way to start taxing people. I hope your app fails miserably.
“Free” 3-day trial instantly charged for the year
by ChelseaHiggins on 2021/05/11 18:39
Couldn’t get into the app without accepting a 3-day free trial, which I didn’t want. As soon as I did, planning to cancel right after, I was instantly charged for the full year. Yikes.
Please just bring the old vision back
by JX2333 on 2021/05/11 05:45
All I’m trying to do is save a photo without any features at all but to crop it. Please remove the freaking become a premium thing, it’s getting disappointing and hard to use app.
It’s not even free, is just an ad for premium
by Sakura102580 on 2021/05/11 05:43
I can’t even use the app anymore. I deleted and reinstalled to see if there was a close button for the premium ,unfortunately there wasn’t a close option, I can’t even get to the free editing tools anymore, since now it’s blocked by the premium ad that I can’t even close out of. And even before I did that, every time I saved a photo the premium ad would pop up and I can’t even close the ad which resulted me completely closing the app all together and start it back up just to save 1 photo. I liked this app cuz it was easy to resize things, honestly that’s all I used this app for. Now I can’t get anywhere with the premium ad that keeps popping up that I can’t even close.
Not free. Impossible to use app
by Spencer_Logan_SL1 on 2021/05/11 03:18
I have had this app for iPhone and I have latest updates. Tried restarting phone. Unable to get past the paywall screen for the premium version. I want to use the app for free however unable to due to a paywall that is immediately present when opening the app, even though the app is free. There is no clear way to get passed it. No "continue to use for free", it just said that it is $29.99 subscription. Unsure of if this is deliberately placed here or not but I would be happy if this was gone so I could use app for free with the free features. Will change the review if the developes get back to me. Thank you!
Subscription
by EmmaTheJudge on 2021/05/11 02:58
I’m tired of almost buying a subscription, when it automatically goes to trying to pay for the free trial, or when it pops up talking about the subscription, there’s no option to close out of it. I had to close out of the app. It’s ridiculous
Forced subscription
by KxHx on 2021/05/11 02:33
I used to use Instasize all the time. They slowly started introducing intrusive ads and other tricks to try to initiate their “free 3-day trial” for their subscription where it would pop up with the Apple Pay prompt randomly. Not cool. Now, after trying to Instasize a picture, it won’t let me save to camera roll without Apple Paying and starting their “free 3-day trial” to then charge $30 after that …Seriously? I can deal with the stupid ads but crippling the app and forcing a subscription on us? Get real. What a money-hungry slimy play. Everyone wants a piece of the subscription-pie these days. I DO NOT recommend this app any more.
USED TO love this app. Not anymore!
by Chi_Sully on 2021/05/11 00:56
Cant believe you have to be forced into a “free trial” I’ve used this app for so many years just to crop my images for IG. So sad that I have to find another app.
Used to love this app
by bellatrixx2312 on 2021/05/10 17:15
I would use this app frequently for its basic features and as of today i could not use it AT ALL without paying for the service, which in turn obviously renders it useless!! Obviously there was ad after ad but at that point I didn't mind it since it was free for the basic tools, I am not paying a ridiculous amount of money just so i can resize my pictures to IG format.
No longer offer free access
by spanish_kid on 2021/05/10 17:08
The app does not offer you a free option anymore, they are now charging 29.99 for a year use.
Got charged without ever byuing it.
by Unsatisfied-124 on 2021/05/10 00:12
Was charged even though I don’t have an account.

I really love ❤️ INSTASIZE ❤️
Use to be good …now it’s not
by reessaa1 on 2021/05/09 00:45
Sad that after over 6 years..I have to delete this and find something else. I can’t do anything anymore without being FORCED into a $29.99/year plan. Even the basic like resizing and just saving. I can’t save without the ad to upgrade popping up. Big disappointed
So easy
by Thic ole Chic on 2021/05/08 18:50
I really like this app very easy to use
Can’t use for free
by Crackiswhack1739 on 2021/05/08 01:39
Can no longer use the free app at all. All I use the app for is to make my photos Instagram size-no other editing at all. I used to be able to do this on the free version of the app but no longer. The “purchase for $4.99/month” ad pops up and you can’t close it out. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app to no avail. If the total app cost $4.99 one time I’d gladly pay it. But $60/a year to crop a photo? No way. Not worth it.
Scammers
by Beyond Blake on 2021/05/07 15:57
This app is absolute trash now. Forcing people to a 3 day trial that turns into a $30 payment or else they can’t use the app. Garbage.
Was….
by Sway from CT on 2021/05/06 22:30
Just recently they made some changes and the ad to purchase their premium option gets stuck and you can’t save your photo that you were working on. It’s like they want you to buy their premium package and that’s the only option you have. I have an idea. Sell it for $1.99 like it used to be instead of this monthly usage nonsense for photos. I had to delete the app until they return back to earth. (Sad day)
Too pushy on the subscription
by giraffeokay7689 on 2021/05/06 21:47
I want the free functions only but it wont let me access it because it’s forcing me to buy the subscription. I have had this app for years and now will be forced to use another app due to the greed here. Do not recommend.
Didn’t let me sign up
by pinelansbbd on 2021/05/06 20:22
I only rated it five stars so people would see it :I
finally time to delete this app
by kreactivity on 2021/05/06 20:11
funny, this app now forces you to “tryout” premium and is now essentially a paid service. kinda sad to see after using this app for over 5 years but its never sad when there are so many other options out there. hope this decision works out well for instasize
You have to pay
by LeoAzp 53 on 2021/05/06 02:13
It doesn't let me use the free versión
No longer free to use at all
by kahoogie on 2021/05/05 21:23
Used to be free to use most tools. That’s not how it is anymore, you can’t save the photos- it is forcing you to buy the paid version. Will not use until they remove this option.
WTH? I. DON’T. WANT. SUBSCRIPTION
by duckydevine on 2021/05/05 19:19
I just got a new phone and it won’t let me open the app on my new phone without subscribing and having to pay an annual fee. I have the free version on my old phone and on my iPad but no matter what I do it won’t open on my new phone, it wants me to use the free trial and then pay. I don’t need all those bells and whistles! The app was great just the way it was and it suited my needs but now I can’t use it on my new phone. I would give it five stars because it does work great, but it’s getting one star because I can’t use it now 🤨
Almost Forced Subscription
by Bleckyvhobdyhdghk on 2021/05/05 18:41
I am beyond frustrated with this app. I solely use it to edit the size of some photos and that is it. Every time I try and do this, a message pops up to purchase a subscription. I never have not will I ever want a subscription, so I always say no. Well now it has picked up on a feature with my iPhone settings that it only needs a finger print to approve the purchase. So when I go to hit the home button to exit the app, I end up purchasing a subscription without realizing it. This has happened a few times and I continuously email customer service and get zero response. I’m honestly going to end up deleting the app at this rate. I canceled it as quick as I can, but am still getting charged. Maybe it would be different had someone reached out to me, but I’ve emailed them four times now with zero response. I’ll use other apps for my editing needs.
Deleted this app…don’t force me to upgrade
by MattGio on 2021/05/05 16:02
App forces you to upgrade to use it at all. Didn’t used to be this way and this is a recent change. Don’t bother trying it for free usage, doesn’t give you that anymore. As soon as you try to save the image, your only choice is to upgrade. Sorry my choice is to delete the app and find another.
Not happy
by bryceqb on 2021/05/05 01:25
It’s a death trap. Can’t figure out how to cancel the subscription. Very angry!
Won’t let you cancel
by idcbye56789 on 2021/05/04 15:04
I have tried everything and never been able to successfully cancel this. This app is not worth 4.99 or any money at all. Please cancel my sub immediately.
I need to find a new app for Instagram sizing photos
by Unicorn Ali on 2021/05/04 12:09
I am so tired of being asked every time I use their app to upgrade. They’re very sneaky on how they try to get you to purchase the upgrade, too. Now it’s to the point that if I don’t upgrade I don’t have access to what the entire point of me using the app is. BUYER BEWARE.
don't download
by reshafelecia on 2021/05/04 10:07
i used to use instasize a couple of years ago and it was free and great. Now you have to purchase premium to even use it after download. stupid and dumb y'all ruined your app
Have to buy premium
by bñmp on 2021/05/04 01:20
You have no option but to buy the premium, it literally wouldn’t let me do anything but “continue with premium”. Oh well. Next.
It leaves the app
by Mel6234 on 2021/05/04 00:21
I really used to enjoy this app but recently it’s been exiting the app out. I will do two edits and before I finish the app will close out by itself. It is super inconvenient and annoying because I can’t even save my edits in time. I guess I’ll just have to delete the app. 🙁 besides that it used to be a good app.
Zero free features
by Meredithcarbs on 2021/05/03 11:24
I dont know what the issue is with this app and who is in charge but it is disgusting that an app can claim to have free features on it only for them not too.
Best editing app
by vanessacis21 on 2021/05/03 04:52
I never ever EVERRRR leave reviews but this app... I’m so shook right now. It allows you to pinpoint the exact tiny area you’d like to edit. Let’s say you want to add light to a certain area but not the whole pic???? Uhm YEAH it let me do that and I’m Just really excited right now. Best app I’ve ever came across !
Warning this app is not free
by factsfactsfactsfactsfacts on 2021/05/03 00:06
This app says it’s free but you will have to buy the premium to use it!! Don’t even both downloading it.
I do not like it
by Sliz19892012 on 2021/05/02 18:03
I like the old one better this set up is stupid
Scam
by hdgagauwnfnc on 2021/05/02 16:56
Signed me up automatically for a $5 per month subscription without me knowing. I downloaded this app years ago when it was FREE. Im not even signed into an account but it is still able to take money and subscribe me?? I tried to request a refund but apple will not allow it. Enjoy the money you stole from my account for months on end.
Use to be a great app
by sbcisnalandond on 2021/05/02 14:06
Use to be the only app I used for my photos but now they want to pay money & you can’t get around that screen to eve use the app anymore. So disappointing, taking my business somewhere else
Annoying
by Holychris56 on 2021/05/01 19:35
Continuous pop ups to subscribe. I would if I wasn’t pestered 24/7
Can’t use it for free
by caro abcdefg on 2021/05/01 18:15
I used to love Instasize, but now I can’t get past the paywall for premium. Kinda annoying that I can’t use a free app without paying
What happened?
by haleyannnnnn on 2021/05/01 06:14
It won’t even let me use the free version anymore :( Devastating
Long time user and this app is trash now
by Heyyk on 2021/04/30 12:14
This app won’t even open since the update I did today. Prior to this update, it would close frequently, not allowing me to edit videos.
I had no choice but to leave a review
by Gordon13ombay on 2021/04/30 05:53
Update: 4/30/21: thought about buying the app, but it still uses tricks to try and get people to buy a subscription. Great app, terrible people behind it. Just use the free version until these folks go out of business/someone makes a better free version. When the review prompt shows up, there’s no way to ignore it or get around it. Also, when you’re just trying to export, somehow I always end up on the payment page even when I decline purchasing the full version. App works well, but the tricks of trying to make people purchase and leave reviews have me declining to buy just out of principle.
Misleading and aggressive subscription prompts
by olugbam on 2021/04/29 16:37
Subscription offer claims a free trial but not free trial exists. Don’t use this app if you want to avoid getting scammed out of your money.
Help??
by LDizzyy on 2021/04/29 14:19
I have used this app for 5 or more years and loved it, but for the past couple months I haven’t used it because it won’t let me use the free version! I have tried to download it and redownload and nothing will help. I have googled it and can’t find something to help but I can only find people saying the same thing on Twitter. I want to use the app, but there is no way to get past the 3 day trial ad that pops up.
Trash. Don’t download, just trying to take your money!
by Brandon Soto on 2021/04/29 00:27
I’ve been using this app for the longest time to square off pictures, and just recently I’m no longer able to do more than one. It was all for the FREE! However, it seems after you edit even ONE photo, they automatically prompt you to sign up for their subscription and give you no option to exit out. Even if you close the app, it’ll just pop up again and you literally cannot exit out of it. Super annoying! Would give this 0 stars if I could!!!!
Amazing
by demps75 on 2021/04/27 13:03
Fun and rewarding.
Too pricey
by btwin710 on 2021/04/27 11:29
Why charge so much?
Works fine but it glitches too much
by kiaraleii on 2021/04/26 16:40
I love editing on this app it is my favorite app, but it glitches too much. I edit the sharpness, and everything and boom it glitches me out the app. And i pay monthly for extra filters it is very much a scam at this point, not a lot of good filters either. Disappointed.
Tricks you into buying premium
by jeifhwuchah on 2021/04/26 03:45
Developers contact me for a refund now!
🙄🙄
by tlin1414 on 2021/04/26 03:12
They automatically charged me and set me up for a premium subscription. Not cool this is the second time this as happened.

I don’t remember agreeing to a “premium subscription” and the “contact us” tab doesn’t work. Stop charging me!
Worst editing app can I give you zero stars?
by Yorkiegirlforever on 2021/04/23 16:57

Stop charging me!!!!

Forcing premium

Premium

Don’t download it!
by lopash on 2021/04/22 01:14
I used this app for year! And now I’m not able to edit my picture without the purchase of the year subscription it’s soo sad :(
What happened?! Can’t ‘X’ out of pop-up anymore
by _G_O_ on 2021/04/18 23:20
Enjoyed this app in the past. All of a sudden can’t ‘X’ out of the ‘Premier Free Trial’ pop-up. Please don’t respond with “Uninstall/reinstall if you still have issues contact us…” Just fix it.
Waste of a download
by Green bay packers rule on 2021/04/18 16:46
There seems to be no way to get pass the screen to play 29.99 a year for use of the app. I had this app for over 5 years and never had to pay. Now I can’t get past the page to pay, in order to use the free version.
Was good… not anymore
by Kaliq17 on 2021/04/16 16:17
I’ve used this app for years to resize images. Now it forces you to agree to there paid subscription with the 3-day free trial. It’s not free anymore and has been deleted
Money hungry.
by Ashten96 on 2021/04/16 14:22
I used instasize for years. Loved it. Now I can’t do anything on it without it trying to scam me into buying their subscription. I’m going to have to find a new app to resize my pictures, one that isn’t like a pushy salesman or should I say SCAM-ARTIST.
Won’t let me opt out
by Lulove17 on 2021/04/15 17:53
I had this app a while ago, loved it.. now I can’t even get into the app without it pushing the subscription into my face and won’t let me opt out of the 3 day trial.. sad that it’s gone this way..

Can’t use
by Lemonheadwiid3 on 2021/04/12 11:34
I can’t even get into the app to use. It keeps asking me to subscribe to premium and doesn’t give me an option to cancel it. No one is going to pay $30 a year just to make pictures fit on Instagram.
Excellent
by Jlocced on 2021/04/12 02:47
Nice and organized App
Good app but I gave this 1 star because..
by blingmusic on 2021/04/11 03:45
You try to trick people into having to purchase to export your photo. Having it go straight to the purchase screen is such a scam. Be better than that. If someone wants to purchase, they will purchase. I will never purchase because of that 👎
Amazing
by Shelly Tomorrow on 2021/04/10 22:02
I honestly love this app. You can edit your photos and put them into collages. I have not had an issue at all!
Purchases
by BKMoskos on 2021/04/10 16:39
Instasize charged me $31.86, and I’m not sure why. I did not approve this charge, and in all the years I have used the app I have never been charged to use it.
Cancellation

Use to love!
by Tay_Rae98 on 2021/04/10 05:57
I’ve had the app for as long as I can’t remember and it upsets me that you have to do the premium option(free trail) no matter what.
Why
by sj422 on 2021/04/07 10:56
I’ve used this app for years. Constantly being asked to upgrade when constantly saying no is annoying. Now I just got a new phone and it will NOT let me move past the premium screen. It’s basically saying I can’t use the app unless I pay for premium which is bogus. Please fix this issue. There’s no reason to pay $30 to resize a photo.
Over this app
by Amaryahx3 on 2021/04/07 03:47
Used to love this app when everything was free, now I’m being spam every single to purchase their subscription. I literally only use it to blur the background of my pictures nothing else. EVERY TIME I log it or try to save a picture it’s asking for my Face ID to pay a subscription. At this point it’s annoying and I rather find another app

Changes
by Nye👑 on 2021/04/04 01:20
I used to use this app all the time and now I can’t open the app without subscribing I feel like they’re forcing you to purchase the app to be able to still use it. And now that I accidentally went over my trial they charged my account $32 but now that I’m opening the app they want me to resubscribe for next year to be able to use the app even though I’m already subscribed for a whole year
Doesn’t always work
by kalyau on 2021/04/02 22:06
After I edit my photo and go to save it to my photos, I frequently get an error message and it won’t let me save my photo. This is very annoying. As I’m typing this review I can’t even see the letters as I’m typing. Ugh
Shady
by khfrhb on 2021/04/02 07:14
I have accidentally purchased premium over 10 times because they trick you with applying your thumbprint to purchase when you’re trying to just save the photo to your phone. Garbage.
blurry pictures
by a13you on 2021/04/02 00:49
the pictures are mad blurry when saved to camera roll. they look nun like how it does in the app.
I don’t want this app
by MARGWA ZOMBIE on 2021/04/01 16:49
Should be a free app. Hard to cancel
Enough with the subscription spam
by kategoodrich555555555 on 2021/03/31 22:30
This app was the best until they started shoving subscriptions down your throat to a point where you’re unable to click away every single time you open the app
Overcharged
by _Anthoonhy_ on 2021/03/31 08:13
I was to supposed to have a 3 days free trial and the charged me 29.99 for a whole year!
i couldn’t use the app unless i got the 3 day FREE trial!
by briana.neff on 2021/03/29 05:58
the app wouldn’t let me get into it unless i started a three day free trial, so i started the trial and the app charged me $32.16! i used to constantly use this app, but if customer support doesn’t refund me my money, they’ll be losing a very frequent user.
Faulty app
by summerleeannarnold on 2021/03/27 20:49
They charged me $5.99 for a monthly subscription I didn’t authorize and now the Contact Us Now button isn’t working. I’m trying to cancel that subscription so they can’t keep taking my money and they think messing up the app will stop me? Lol
Only could give it one star

I love this app but I could only give it one star cuz it keeps CRASHING!
Trash

Suddenly you can’t use the app without upgrading?? The screen just doesn’t go away and there’s no way to exit it.
What do I do?!
by itsyourgirljo on 2021/03/26 08:21
I’ve had this app for years now just to add a background to my pictures and that was all. One day the app just stopped working and it won’t let me use it anymore without subscribing. I’ve uninstalled and installed it once again and the same thing is still happening. What could i possibly do?! I always loved using this app but it just gets so frustrating.
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.
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.
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 !!!
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.
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..
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!
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.
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!
Need app support please.
by Crashbashenginehash on 2021/01/01 17:54
This app was working great. Not so much now on my iPhone 12. After I apply a filter sometimes it will let me save my work, other times it just shuts the app down without saving changes. I do what all app support tells us to do, and that is to uninstall and reinstall. Sadly, that just took the icon off my iPhone. If I want to use your app now, I have to search for it in the App Store and select open where I can use it. I’m a paid subscriber for a couple of years now, but if this app is no longer compatible, I don’t care to continue with it. Please help. Thank you. Falling stars from 5 to 1... I have 2 for the benefit of the doubt that you will get back to me with a fix..Your contact support area only advertises your product and gives you an option for the pay for subscription, which I already have. It did not get me to support.. which is annoying. ☹️👎🏼
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!
This is annoying
by brooklynconraf on 2020/03/07 00:56
I’ve had this app for 2 years now and I never subscribed to it because I was happy with just using what you got to use on the app for free. Well the other day I was on the app and Idk how it happened but I guess I accidentally hit the subscribe button and it didn’t even give me the option of “are you sure you wish to subscribe? Yes or no” or whatever and it just automatically subscribed and now I’m being charged $4.99 when I DO NOT WANT IT, and when I tried to go through the app to UNSUBSCRIBE, there’s no where on the app to unsubscribe. I’m highly annoyed with this app and I want it off my phone and my money back, and I don’t want to be subscribed to this app any longer.
Good app but needs to be fixed
by TiffanyN98 on 2021/02/01 02:05
I used to be able to use this app with no issue. However, recently when I’ve gone to use it and put a white border around my pictures and save it, it asks if I want to join premium or to watch an ad. Which is annoying but whatever. I hit watch ad cause I’m not gonna pay for a membership. When I hit watch ad it sits there and tries to load for what seems like 10 years and then it ends up just not loading. So now I have to add the boarder to my picture and then screenshot it cause it won’t load the stupid ad and save the picture, but now I have no way to add the boarder to videos if I want. I’ve tried updating the app and even trying this in a place where I have perfect service. I’m starting to consider downloading a different app if nothing changes soon.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
Almost Forced Subscription
by Bleckyvhobdyhdghk on 2021/05/05 18:41
I am beyond frustrated with this app. I solely use it to edit the size of some photos and that is it. Every time I try and do this, a message pops up to purchase a subscription. I never have not will I ever want a subscription, so I always say no. Well now it has picked up on a feature with my iPhone settings that it only needs a finger print to approve the purchase. So when I go to hit the home button to exit the app, I end up purchasing a subscription without realizing it. This has happened a few times and I continuously email customer service and get zero response. I’m honestly going to end up deleting the app at this rate. I canceled it as quick as I can, but am still getting charged. Maybe it would be different had someone reached out to me, but I’ve emailed them four times now with zero response. I’ll use other apps for my editing needs.
Very decisive Ad method
by Obi55 on 2020/10/21 14:10
This app used to be good but it literally forces you to upgrade with very intrusive lengthy ads.. After watching 30 seconds plus ads and you tap close, it decisively sends you to AppStore. I pity those brands advertising on this platform on “click cost” I suppose the high ratings is from previous years users. **Responding to the developer: No stop lying, there’s no way to exit the ads after 5 seconds. It usually minimum 20-30 seconds, and 99% of time when you tap the “x” button that finally shows up after 30secs, it still takes you to AppStore.. so stop lying.”
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.
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.
Used to love it
by princess_briibrii (fmoig) on 2021/01/27 03:47
I loved this app when I first got it (which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 1) my only problem with it at this point is that every time I use the app it tries to get me to subscribe to the premium version and doesn’t give me the option to X out of the pop up. No matter what part of the screen I hit it tries to make me pay for a subscription which wouldn’t be too big of a deal except that twice now when trying to exit out of the app it’s instead decided to charge my card for a subscription that I dont want!! This leads to me having to email Apple and get a refund and it’s a long process that wastes everyone’s time and could be avoided if the app developers would stop trying to push the subscription on you.
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!
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??
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
Kind of Shady
by @tequilasunrlse on 2021/01/27 01:16
I love this app and have used it for years. That being said, I think lately the app is being shady when it comes to this thing popping up once you’re trying to save your photo that says “purchase $4.99 version” of the app. It makes it seem like you HAVE to pay to save your photo, which is not the case. I usually just click cancel but this time my thumb happened to be on the home button, so the payment went through, but luckily I was able to cancel. I downloaded the app as a free app, I don’t wanna get tricked into paying more for no reason. I don’t like that. I will still use the app until I find something similar that doesn’t try to scam me every time I save a photo.
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.
just got worse
by ALolliPOP13007 on 2021/01/11 08:35
in the past, i used to use the features of this app smoothly and without glitch or trouble. however, ever since the recent update, i’ve found it harder and harder to use Instasize, especially adding text and saving pictures. the text now suddenly has a type of magnetic placement which is quite bothersome when i want to get the text to go where i want it. the saving is even worse. i often find that after i’ve edited a picture, i press the save button and absolutely nothing happens even after multiple taps, so i have to discard my edit and redo the entire thing to make it work. it would be great if the app could go back to its previous version as that version worked much smoother.
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!

Cannot use app anymore?
by FallOutBouFangirl on 2021/05/12 00:38
This app was once extremely useful. Now I literally cannot use it. Every time I open it, it forces me to sign up for a free trial, which I don’t want to do. There is no decline button. You are losing people because your app is literally inaccessible.
Garbage
by Zachattttttack on 2021/05/11 19:41
Way to start taxing people. I hope your app fails miserably.
“Free” 3-day trial instantly charged for the year
by ChelseaHiggins on 2021/05/11 18:39
Couldn’t get into the app without accepting a 3-day free trial, which I didn’t want. As soon as I did, planning to cancel right after, I was instantly charged for the full year. Yikes.
Please just bring the old vision back
by JX2333 on 2021/05/11 05:45
All I’m trying to do is save a photo without any features at all but to crop it. Please remove the freaking become a premium thing, it’s getting disappointing and hard to use app.
It’s not even free, is just an ad for premium
by Sakura102580 on 2021/05/11 05:43
I can’t even use the app anymore. I deleted and reinstalled to see if there was a close button for the premium ,unfortunately there wasn’t a close option, I can’t even get to the free editing tools anymore, since now it’s blocked by the premium ad that I can’t even close out of. And even before I did that, every time I saved a photo the premium ad would pop up and I can’t even close the ad which resulted me completely closing the app all together and start it back up just to save 1 photo. I liked this app cuz it was easy to resize things, honestly that’s all I used this app for. Now I can’t get anywhere with the premium ad that keeps popping up that I can’t even close.
Not free. Impossible to use app
by Spencer_Logan_SL1 on 2021/05/11 03:18
I have had this app for iPhone and I have latest updates. Tried restarting phone. Unable to get past the paywall screen for the premium version. I want to use the app for free however unable to due to a paywall that is immediately present when opening the app, even though the app is free. There is no clear way to get passed it. No "continue to use for free", it just said that it is $29.99 subscription. Unsure of if this is deliberately placed here or not but I would be happy if this was gone so I could use app for free with the free features. Will change the review if the developes get back to me. Thank you!
Subscription
by EmmaTheJudge on 2021/05/11 02:58
I’m tired of almost buying a subscription, when it automatically goes to trying to pay for the free trial, or when it pops up talking about the subscription, there’s no option to close out of it. I had to close out of the app. It’s ridiculous
Forced subscription
by KxHx on 2021/05/11 02:33
I used to use Instasize all the time. They slowly started introducing intrusive ads and other tricks to try to initiate their “free 3-day trial” for their subscription where it would pop up with the Apple Pay prompt randomly. Not cool. Now, after trying to Instasize a picture, it won’t let me save to camera roll without Apple Paying and starting their “free 3-day trial” to then charge $30 after that …Seriously? I can deal with the stupid ads but crippling the app and forcing a subscription on us? Get real. What a money-hungry slimy play. Everyone wants a piece of the subscription-pie these days. I DO NOT recommend this app any more.
USED TO love this app. Not anymore!
by Chi_Sully on 2021/05/11 00:56
Cant believe you have to be forced into a “free trial” I’ve used this app for so many years just to crop my images for IG. So sad that I have to find another app.
Used to love this app
by bellatrixx2312 on 2021/05/10 17:15
I would use this app frequently for its basic features and as of today i could not use it AT ALL without paying for the service, which in turn obviously renders it useless!! Obviously there was ad after ad but at that point I didn't mind it since it was free for the basic tools, I am not paying a ridiculous amount of money just so i can resize my pictures to IG format.
No longer offer free access
by spanish_kid on 2021/05/10 17:08
The app does not offer you a free option anymore, they are now charging 29.99 for a year use.
Got charged without ever byuing it.
by Unsatisfied-124 on 2021/05/10 00:12
Was charged even though I don’t have an account.

by reessaa1 on 2021/05/09 00:45
Sad that after over 6 years..I have to delete this and find something else. I can’t do anything anymore without being FORCED into a $29.99/year plan. Even the basic like resizing and just saving. I can’t save without the ad to upgrade popping up. Big disappointed
So easy
by Thic ole Chic on 2021/05/08 18:50
I really like this app very easy to use
Can’t use for free
by Crackiswhack1739 on 2021/05/08 01:39
Can no longer use the free app at all. All I use the app for is to make my photos Instagram size-no other editing at all. I used to be able to do this on the free version of the app but no longer. The “purchase for $4.99/month” ad pops up and you can’t close it out. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app to no avail. If the total app cost $4.99 one time I’d gladly pay it. But $60/a year to crop a photo? No way. Not worth it.
Scammers
by Beyond Blake on 2021/05/07 15:57
This app is absolute trash now. Forcing people to a 3 day trial that turns into a $30 payment or else they can’t use the app. Garbage.
Was….
by Sway from CT on 2021/05/06 22:30
Just recently they made some changes and the ad to purchase their premium option gets stuck and you can’t save your photo that you were working on. It’s like they want you to buy their premium package and that’s the only option you have. I have an idea. Sell it for $1.99 like it used to be instead of this monthly usage nonsense for photos. I had to delete the app until they return back to earth. (Sad day)
Too pushy on the subscription
by giraffeokay7689 on 2021/05/06 21:47
I want the free functions only but it wont let me access it because it’s forcing me to buy the subscription. I have had this app for years and now will be forced to use another app due to the greed here. Do not recommend.
Didn’t let me sign up
by pinelansbbd on 2021/05/06 20:22
I only rated it five stars so people would see it :I
finally time to delete this app
by kreactivity on 2021/05/06 20:11
funny, this app now forces you to “tryout” premium and is now essentially a paid service. kinda sad to see after using this app for over 5 years but its never sad when there are so many other options out there. hope this decision works out well for instasize
You have to pay
by LeoAzp 53 on 2021/05/06 02:13
It doesn't let me use the free versión
No longer free to use at all
by kahoogie on 2021/05/05 21:23
Used to be free to use most tools. That’s not how it is anymore, you can’t save the photos- it is forcing you to buy the paid version. Will not use until they remove this option.
WTH? I. DON’T. WANT. SUBSCRIPTION
by duckydevine on 2021/05/05 19:19
I just got a new phone and it won’t let me open the app on my new phone without subscribing and having to pay an annual fee. I have the free version on my old phone and on my iPad but no matter what I do it won’t open on my new phone, it wants me to use the free trial and then pay. I don’t need all those bells and whistles! The app was great just the way it was and it suited my needs but now I can’t use it on my new phone. I would give it five stars because it does work great, but it’s getting one star because I can’t use it now 🤨
Almost Forced Subscription
by Bleckyvhobdyhdghk on 2021/05/05 18:41
I am beyond frustrated with this app. I solely use it to edit the size of some photos and that is it. Every time I try and do this, a message pops up to purchase a subscription. I never have not will I ever want a subscription, so I always say no. Well now it has picked up on a feature with my iPhone settings that it only needs a finger print to approve the purchase. So when I go to hit the home button to exit the app, I end up purchasing a subscription without realizing it. This has happened a few times and I continuously email customer service and get zero response. I’m honestly going to end up deleting the app at this rate. I canceled it as quick as I can, but am still getting charged. Maybe it would be different had someone reached out to me, but I’ve emailed them four times now with zero response. I’ll use other apps for my editing needs.
Deleted this app…don’t force me to upgrade
by MattGio on 2021/05/05 16:02
App forces you to upgrade to use it at all. Didn’t used to be this way and this is a recent change. Don’t bother trying it for free usage, doesn’t give you that anymore. As soon as you try to save the image, your only choice is to upgrade. Sorry my choice is to delete the app and find another.
Not happy
by bryceqb on 2021/05/05 01:25
It’s a death trap. Can’t figure out how to cancel the subscription. Very angry!
Won’t let you cancel
by idcbye56789 on 2021/05/04 15:04
I have tried everything and never been able to successfully cancel this. This app is not worth 4.99 or any money at all. Please cancel my sub immediately.
I need to find a new app for Instagram sizing photos
by Unicorn Ali on 2021/05/04 12:09
I am so tired of being asked every time I use their app to upgrade. They’re very sneaky on how they try to get you to purchase the upgrade, too. Now it’s to the point that if I don’t upgrade I don’t have access to what the entire point of me using the app is. BUYER BEWARE.
don't download
by reshafelecia on 2021/05/04 10:07
i used to use instasize a couple of years ago and it was free and great. Now you have to purchase premium to even use it after download. stupid and dumb y'all ruined your app
Have to buy premium
by bñmp on 2021/05/04 01:20
You have no option but to buy the premium, it literally wouldn’t let me do anything but “continue with premium”. Oh well. Next.
It leaves the app
by Mel6234 on 2021/05/04 00:21
I really used to enjoy this app but recently it’s been exiting the app out. I will do two edits and before I finish the app will close out by itself. It is super inconvenient and annoying because I can’t even save my edits in time. I guess I’ll just have to delete the app. 🙁 besides that it used to be a good app.
Zero free features
by Meredithcarbs on 2021/05/03 11:24
I dont know what the issue is with this app and who is in charge but it is disgusting that an app can claim to have free features on it only for them not too.
Best editing app
by vanessacis21 on 2021/05/03 04:52
I never ever EVERRRR leave reviews but this app... I’m so shook right now. It allows you to pinpoint the exact tiny area you’d like to edit. Let’s say you want to add light to a certain area but not the whole pic???? Uhm YEAH it let me do that and I’m Just really excited right now. Best app I’ve ever came across !
Warning this app is not free
by factsfactsfactsfactsfacts on 2021/05/03 00:06
This app says it’s free but you will have to buy the premium to use it!! Don’t even both downloading it.
I do not like it
by Sliz19892012 on 2021/05/02 18:03
I like the old one better this set up is stupid
Scam
by hdgagauwnfnc on 2021/05/02 16:56
Signed me up automatically for a $5 per month subscription without me knowing. I downloaded this app years ago when it was FREE. Im not even signed into an account but it is still able to take money and subscribe me?? I tried to request a refund but apple will not allow it. Enjoy the money you stole from my account for months on end.
Use to be a great app
by sbcisnalandond on 2021/05/02 14:06
Use to be the only app I used for my photos but now they want to pay money & you can’t get around that screen to eve use the app anymore. So disappointing, taking my business somewhere else
Annoying
by Holychris56 on 2021/05/01 19:35
Continuous pop ups to subscribe. I would if I wasn’t pestered 24/7
Can’t use it for free
by caro abcdefg on 2021/05/01 18:15
I used to love Instasize, but now I can’t get past the paywall for premium. Kinda annoying that I can’t use a free app without paying
What happened?
by haleyannnnnn on 2021/05/01 06:14
It won’t even let me use the free version anymore :( Devastating
Long time user and this app is trash now
by Heyyk on 2021/04/30 12:14
This app won’t even open since the update I did today. Prior to this update, it would close frequently, not allowing me to edit videos.
I had no choice but to leave a review
by Gordon13ombay on 2021/04/30 05:53
Update: 4/30/21: thought about buying the app, but it still uses tricks to try and get people to buy a subscription. Great app, terrible people behind it. Just use the free version until these folks go out of business/someone makes a better free version. When the review prompt shows up, there’s no way to ignore it or get around it. Also, when you’re just trying to export, somehow I always end up on the payment page even when I decline purchasing the full version. App works well, but the tricks of trying to make people purchase and leave reviews have me declining to buy just out of principle.
Misleading and aggressive subscription prompts
by olugbam on 2021/04/29 16:37
Subscription offer claims a free trial but not free trial exists. Don’t use this app if you want to avoid getting scammed out of your money.
Help??
by LDizzyy on 2021/04/29 14:19
I have used this app for 5 or more years and loved it, but for the past couple months I haven’t used it because it won’t let me use the free version! I have tried to download it and redownload and nothing will help. I have googled it and can’t find something to help but I can only find people saying the same thing on Twitter. I want to use the app, but there is no way to get past the 3 day trial ad that pops up.
Trash. Don’t download, just trying to take your money!
by Brandon Soto on 2021/04/29 00:27
I’ve been using this app for the longest time to square off pictures, and just recently I’m no longer able to do more than one. It was all for the FREE! However, it seems after you edit even ONE photo, they automatically prompt you to sign up for their subscription and give you no option to exit out. Even if you close the app, it’ll just pop up again and you literally cannot exit out of it. Super annoying! Would give this 0 stars if I could!!!!
Amazing
by demps75 on 2021/04/27 13:03
Fun and rewarding.
Too pricey
by btwin710 on 2021/04/27 11:29
Why charge so much?
Works fine but it glitches too much
by kiaraleii on 2021/04/26 16:40
I love editing on this app it is my favorite app, but it glitches too much. I edit the sharpness, and everything and boom it glitches me out the app. And i pay monthly for extra filters it is very much a scam at this point, not a lot of good filters either. Disappointed.
Tricks you into buying premium
by jeifhwuchah on 2021/04/26 03:45
Developers contact me for a refund now!
🙄🙄
by tlin1414 on 2021/04/26 03:12
They automatically charged me and set me up for a premium subscription. Not cool this is the second time this as happened.
Too much money

Too expensive and not worth it
So convenient

Cant contact, didn’t agree to charges.
by Natasanubus on 2021/04/24 15:30
I don’t remember agreeing to a “premium subscription” and the “contact us” tab doesn’t work. Stop charging me!
Worst editing app can I give you zero stars?
by Yorkiegirlforever on 2021/04/23 16:57
I have no idea how this works or how to use it. What a disaster
Stop charging me!!!!
by iambenlyons on 2021/04/23 14:03
I have been trying to cancel my account but you keep charging me please stop!!!
Give my money back!
by camismp on 2021/04/23 02:51
I’ve been trying non stop to unsubscribe and it doesn’t work. I don’t want this app! Return my money
Wasn’t great

So the app is not great. 😒 you have to pay for it
Forcing premium
by stinticles on 2021/04/22 13:24
I tried to use this app I click get started then a premium add pops up and you can’t close it without purchasing or leaving app
Premium
by robbiwilder on 2021/04/22 03:11
Signed me up even after i said no.
Don’t download it!
by lopash on 2021/04/22 01:14
I used this app for year! And now I’m not able to edit my picture without the purchase of the year subscription it’s soo sad :(
What happened?! Can’t ‘X’ out of pop-up anymore
by _G_O_ on 2021/04/18 23:20
Enjoyed this app in the past. All of a sudden can’t ‘X’ out of the ‘Premier Free Trial’ pop-up. Please don’t respond with “Uninstall/reinstall if you still have issues contact us…” Just fix it.
Waste of a download
by Green bay packers rule on 2021/04/18 16:46
There seems to be no way to get pass the screen to play 29.99 a year for use of the app. I had this app for over 5 years and never had to pay. Now I can’t get past the page to pay, in order to use the free version.
Was good… not anymore
by Kaliq17 on 2021/04/16 16:17
I’ve used this app for years to resize images. Now it forces you to agree to there paid subscription with the 3-day free trial. It’s not free anymore and has been deleted
Money hungry.
by Ashten96 on 2021/04/16 14:22
I used instasize for years. Loved it. Now I can’t do anything on it without it trying to scam me into buying their subscription. I’m going to have to find a new app to resize my pictures, one that isn’t like a pushy salesman or should I say SCAM-ARTIST.
Won’t let me opt out
by Lulove17 on 2021/04/15 17:53
I had this app a while ago, loved it.. now I can’t even get into the app without it pushing the subscription into my face and won’t let me opt out of the 3 day trial.. sad that it’s gone this way..

Don’t.
So so

I just found if I give any image with a border, the color is getting darker, not good for artists definitely.
Tons of bugs
by bestiejenn on 2021/04/13 18:34
App crashes constantly. Price continues to increase
Can’t use
by Lemonheadwiid3 on 2021/04/12 11:34
I can’t even get into the app to use. It keeps asking me to subscribe to premium and doesn’t give me an option to cancel it. No one is going to pay $30 a year just to make pictures fit on Instagram.
Excellent
by Jlocced on 2021/04/12 02:47
Nice and organized App
Good app but I gave this 1 star because..
by blingmusic on 2021/04/11 03:45
You try to trick people into having to purchase to export your photo. Having it go straight to the purchase screen is such a scam. Be better than that. If someone wants to purchase, they will purchase. I will never purchase because of that 👎
Amazing
by Shelly Tomorrow on 2021/04/10 22:02
I honestly love this app. You can edit your photos and put them into collages. I have not had an issue at all!
Purchases
by BKMoskos on 2021/04/10 16:39
Instasize charged me $31.86, and I’m not sure why. I did not approve this charge, and in all the years I have used the app I have never been charged to use it.
Cancellation

Love the app

Its greet. It works awesome
Use to love!
by Tay_Rae98 on 2021/04/10 05:57
I’ve had the app for as long as I can’t remember and it upsets me that you have to do the premium option(free trail) no matter what.
Why
by sj422 on 2021/04/07 10:56
I’ve used this app for years. Constantly being asked to upgrade when constantly saying no is annoying. Now I just got a new phone and it will NOT let me move past the premium screen. It’s basically saying I can’t use the app unless I pay for premium which is bogus. Please fix this issue. There’s no reason to pay $30 to resize a photo.
Over this app
by Amaryahx3 on 2021/04/07 03:47
Used to love this app when everything was free, now I’m being spam every single to purchase their subscription. I literally only use it to blur the background of my pictures nothing else. EVERY TIME I log it or try to save a picture it’s asking for my Face ID to pay a subscription. At this point it’s annoying and I rather find another app
@iambherly
by @iambherly on 2021/04/06 17:28
I love the text editor of this app.

Changes
by Nye👑 on 2021/04/04 01:20
I used to use this app all the time and now I can’t open the app without subscribing I feel like they’re forcing you to purchase the app to be able to still use it. And now that I accidentally went over my trial they charged my account $32 but now that I’m opening the app they want me to resubscribe for next year to be able to use the app even though I’m already subscribed for a whole year
Doesn’t always work
by kalyau on 2021/04/02 22:06
After I edit my photo and go to save it to my photos, I frequently get an error message and it won’t let me save my photo. This is very annoying. As I’m typing this review I can’t even see the letters as I’m typing. Ugh
Shady
by khfrhb on 2021/04/02 07:14
I have accidentally purchased premium over 10 times because they trick you with applying your thumbprint to purchase when you’re trying to just save the photo to your phone. Garbage.
blurry pictures
by a13you on 2021/04/02 00:49
the pictures are mad blurry when saved to camera roll. they look nun like how it does in the app.
I don’t want this app

Should be a free app. Hard to cancel
Enough with the subscription spam
by kategoodrich555555555 on 2021/03/31 22:30
This app was the best until they started shoving subscriptions down your throat to a point where you’re unable to click away every single time you open the app
Overcharged
by _Anthoonhy_ on 2021/03/31 08:13
I was to supposed to have a 3 days free trial and the charged me 29.99 for a whole year!
i couldn’t use the app unless i got the 3 day FREE trial!
by briana.neff on 2021/03/29 05:58
the app wouldn’t let me get into it unless i started a three day free trial, so i started the trial and the app charged me $32.16! i used to constantly use this app, but if customer support doesn’t refund me my money, they’ll be losing a very frequent user.
Faulty app
by summerleeannarnold on 2021/03/27 20:49
They charged me $5.99 for a monthly subscription I didn’t authorize and now the Contact Us Now button isn’t working. I’m trying to cancel that subscription so they can’t keep taking my money and they think messing up the app will stop me? Lol
Only could give it one star
by melbel3392 on 2021/03/27 02:37
I love this app but I could only give it one star cuz it keeps CRASHING!
Trash
by Mc28mc on 2021/03/26 15:39
Suddenly you can’t use the app without upgrading?? The screen just doesn’t go away and there’s no way to exit it.
What do I do?!
by itsyourgirljo on 2021/03/26 08:21
I’ve had this app for years now just to add a background to my pictures and that was all. One day the app just stopped working and it won’t let me use it anymore without subscribing. I’ve uninstalled and installed it once again and the same thing is still happening. What could i possibly do?! I always loved using this app but it just gets so frustrating.
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.
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.
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 !!!
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.
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..
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!
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.
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!
Need app support please.
by Crashbashenginehash on 2021/01/01 17:54
This app was working great. Not so much now on my iPhone 12. After I apply a filter sometimes it will let me save my work, other times it just shuts the app down without saving changes. I do what all app support tells us to do, and that is to uninstall and reinstall. Sadly, that just took the icon off my iPhone. If I want to use your app now, I have to search for it in the App Store and select open where I can use it. I’m a paid subscriber for a couple of years now, but if this app is no longer compatible, I don’t care to continue with it. Please help. Thank you. Falling stars from 5 to 1... I have 2 for the benefit of the doubt that you will get back to me with a fix..Your contact support area only advertises your product and gives you an option for the pay for subscription, which I already have. It did not get me to support.. which is annoying. ☹️👎🏼
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!
This is annoying
by brooklynconraf on 2020/03/07 00:56
I’ve had this app for 2 years now and I never subscribed to it because I was happy with just using what you got to use on the app for free. Well the other day I was on the app and Idk how it happened but I guess I accidentally hit the subscribe button and it didn’t even give me the option of “are you sure you wish to subscribe? Yes or no” or whatever and it just automatically subscribed and now I’m being charged $4.99 when I DO NOT WANT IT, and when I tried to go through the app to UNSUBSCRIBE, there’s no where on the app to unsubscribe. I’m highly annoyed with this app and I want it off my phone and my money back, and I don’t want to be subscribed to this app any longer.
Good app but needs to be fixed
by TiffanyN98 on 2021/02/01 02:05
I used to be able to use this app with no issue. However, recently when I’ve gone to use it and put a white border around my pictures and save it, it asks if I want to join premium or to watch an ad. Which is annoying but whatever. I hit watch ad cause I’m not gonna pay for a membership. When I hit watch ad it sits there and tries to load for what seems like 10 years and then it ends up just not loading. So now I have to add the boarder to my picture and then screenshot it cause it won’t load the stupid ad and save the picture, but now I have no way to add the boarder to videos if I want. I’ve tried updating the app and even trying this in a place where I have perfect service. I’m starting to consider downloading a different app if nothing changes soon.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
Almost Forced Subscription
by Bleckyvhobdyhdghk on 2021/05/05 18:41
I am beyond frustrated with this app. I solely use it to edit the size of some photos and that is it. Every time I try and do this, a message pops up to purchase a subscription. I never have not will I ever want a subscription, so I always say no. Well now it has picked up on a feature with my iPhone settings that it only needs a finger print to approve the purchase. So when I go to hit the home button to exit the app, I end up purchasing a subscription without realizing it. This has happened a few times and I continuously email customer service and get zero response. I’m honestly going to end up deleting the app at this rate. I canceled it as quick as I can, but am still getting charged. Maybe it would be different had someone reached out to me, but I’ve emailed them four times now with zero response. I’ll use other apps for my editing needs.
Very decisive Ad method
by Obi55 on 2020/10/21 14:10
This app used to be good but it literally forces you to upgrade with very intrusive lengthy ads.. After watching 30 seconds plus ads and you tap close, it decisively sends you to AppStore. I pity those brands advertising on this platform on “click cost” I suppose the high ratings is from previous years users. **Responding to the developer: No stop lying, there’s no way to exit the ads after 5 seconds. It usually minimum 20-30 seconds, and 99% of time when you tap the “x” button that finally shows up after 30secs, it still takes you to AppStore.. so stop lying.”
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.
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.
Used to love it
by princess_briibrii (fmoig) on 2021/01/27 03:47
I loved this app when I first got it (which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 1) my only problem with it at this point is that every time I use the app it tries to get me to subscribe to the premium version and doesn’t give me the option to X out of the pop up. No matter what part of the screen I hit it tries to make me pay for a subscription which wouldn’t be too big of a deal except that twice now when trying to exit out of the app it’s instead decided to charge my card for a subscription that I dont want!! This leads to me having to email Apple and get a refund and it’s a long process that wastes everyone’s time and could be avoided if the app developers would stop trying to push the subscription on you.
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!
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??
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
Kind of Shady
by @tequilasunrlse on 2021/01/27 01:16
I love this app and have used it for years. That being said, I think lately the app is being shady when it comes to this thing popping up once you’re trying to save your photo that says “purchase $4.99 version” of the app. It makes it seem like you HAVE to pay to save your photo, which is not the case. I usually just click cancel but this time my thumb happened to be on the home button, so the payment went through, but luckily I was able to cancel. I downloaded the app as a free app, I don’t wanna get tricked into paying more for no reason. I don’t like that. I will still use the app until I find something similar that doesn’t try to scam me every time I save a photo.
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.
just got worse

in the past, i used to use the features of this app smoothly and without glitch or trouble. however, ever since the recent update, i’ve found it harder and harder to use Instasize, especially adding text and saving pictures. the text now suddenly has a type of magnetic placement which is quite bothersome when i want to get the text to go where i want it. the saving is even worse. i often find that after i’ve edited a picture, i press the save button and absolutely nothing happens even after multiple taps, so i have to discard my edit and redo the entire thing to make it work. it would be great if the app could go back to its previous version as that version worked much smoother.
STOLE MY MONEY

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!
