I’ve been using this app on my phone for a few years, seems o just get more complicated and costly. I just downloaded this app on my tablet and it was free to download, but I have to pay for subscription just to use the app. None of the free features on my phone are available on the tablet at all

App crashes
by natachaagc on 2021/10/17 00:05
I had this app and tried to open it but it kept crashing every time I opened it. I even deleted it and re-downloaded it but it’s still crashing. How do I fix this problem?
Not Free - misleading
by ilyaLNY on 2021/10/15 04:02
You can’t say FREE this and FREE that and then it’s subscription priced
So deceptive!!! Always making you subscribe when you don’t want to
by Lape 123 Og on 2021/10/14 08:30
The subscription keeps popping up at weird times so you mistakenly subscribe for it especially when using fingerprint. I just deleted this app!!!
Scam
by biabena15 on 2021/10/14 04:16
Premium membership is misleading, cannot reach customer service about canceling subscription that I’ve never even used despite advertising “cancel anytime”
Great app !
by David8;78;4 on 2021/10/11 06:02
Instasize lets you access a ton of great features which would be premium for other applications ! Always my go to when editing for any social media publications !

Can’t get passed sub screen
by Nazi zombie fan on 2021/10/03 02:19
Like many other users, I too have been using this app for years. I really only used it to resize pics. I got a new phone and downloaded the app again on new phone and now I can’t even get passed the “ima force you to pay for subscriptions” screen to just use it to resize a pic. I still have the app on my old phone so now I have to airdrop my photos to that phone and use the app to resize to airdrop it back to the new phone ughh. So ima have to try to find another app to resize photos with.
Waste of time
by nannerb33 on 2021/10/02 17:11

“Free”
by Good.Hustle.IsntSad on 2021/10/01 17:27
Says it’s free, but when I open the app it prompts me to upgrade to premium, with no way of closing the offer, so I can’t make it past the “upgrade to premium” screen. App is a brick.
App crashing last 10 months
by gjgood on 2021/09/30 00:45
This app has been crashing for me for the past 10 months. It used to work very well and I enjoyed using it. Idk if there was some update that caused this but it’s sad the app won’t even open. Using iPhone 11 Pro Max and it crashes on my iPhone 12.

i had this app for a while and for some reason when i would open it it would go back to my home screen. so i would delete it and and re download it only for it to keep doing it
Not good.
by ClaireMA1961 on 2021/09/27 14:40
I used to use this every now and then. But recently I took it off because I have no purpose for it, I never knew I was paying monthly for it whenever I did not click the option. They are still trying to charge my account when I don’t even have the app anymore. Just not good at all for business to keep charging people when they don’t even have it in their phone anymore.

Continuously exits out of app while editing!!!
by MissSallySparrow on 2021/09/25 20:22
I’ve tried re installing, shutting my phone down, editing photos in a different order, you name it, but 90% of the time this app shuts down when I try to do simple edits. Complete waste of money when the app doesnt even work, it’s only luck when on my 15th try at a random point in the day it’ll work ONCE. Waste of a purchase I wish I could get my money back!!!
Misleading
by 0912739621 on 2021/09/25 07:29
Free to download but once you open the app you have to put your card info in for a 3 day trial and there’s no way around it. Should not be necessary up just to resize a picture
used to live this app now it’s force subscription
by Jen Duh on 2021/09/24 21:04
I’ve been using the feee version of this app for years, never had a complaint. Now I try to use it & can’t even get in without being forced to subscribe. Such a shame because this was the quickest way to quickly resize without all the unnecessary extra bells & whistles. Hate when a company disregards all previous users & thinks we will pay a subscription just to keep the app. Super disappointed but not surprised!
Totally useless
by EricSerdahl on 2021/09/20 02:02
Very powerful and stupid. No instructions. No clue how to change the photo to have a smaller visual or file size.
Awesome tools, but keeps lagging too much
by Blonde_Merrrmaid on 2021/09/14 06:09
I used to use subscription option, but removed it because it’s insane how many times the app just closed while i was editing and didn’t even save the results! And it just keeps happening for a few years already. Unsubscribed. Now completely deleting the app. Sad. Because tools and filters are awesome
Free version is worthless
by ally_marie123 on 2021/09/14 02:48
The free version used to be really helpful mostly with cropping images to post to Insta. Now they all include a watermark and only have one color option unless you purchase the app.

You can’t use it unless you buy premium
by crs_choco on 2021/09/10 05:24
You literally can’t get passed the “buy premium now” page. It’s not a free app, you still need to pay $5 a week to use it.
Long time user and subscriber
by Lala_1144 on 2021/09/09 22:59
Fix it! Can’t open the app keeps crashing! I’ve deleted and reinstalled, turned phone off then on. It’s not working. Please fix! Love this app don’t want to have to unsubscribe. 9/9/21 Still can’t open & use the app. If this isn’t fixed soon. I’m gonna cancel my subscription.
Instasize
by Labjr6f5 on 2021/09/09 20:02
I haven’t used Instasize in a while and when I tried to getting out of the app all it would take me to was trying to get me to buy the instasize premium and not letting me click out of it and editing some photos that I want to do
Unsustainable biz model
by 保暖大师 on 2021/09/09 18:13
First I love this app and it’s mostly the only app I used to modify my pics. That’s why I write a comment for an app for the very first time. But, and because I love this app as many ppl who left comments, you can’t force people to pay! I know you have to make money and make investors happy. You are supposed to add MUCH MORE USEFUL & UNIQUE FEATURES for that premium, instead of taking back the old free functions and ask people to pay. Let alone the forcing paying pop up stuff. Please let anyone who went to biz school give this team some suggestions. THIS IS SUICIDE. You are making ppl delete this app they love. Or loved.
Same issue for months on end.
by lrianne25 on 2021/09/07 22:00
I remember installing this months ago, around June I think. From the start I wasn’t able to use the app because it forces you to pay if you wanted to use it. There is no option to use it without paying money (or doing the trial but I’m not trusting no app that can be installed free but doesn’t even have the option to use it freely) Might uninstall soon since every time I try to use it, I’m not able to actually use it. Fix the issue or finally put a price on it BEFORE users install.
Once good, now garbage
by RadAstronaut on 2021/09/07 03:31
I used to love this app. It was free, not overrun with ads, did a great job sizing your photos to fit for social media posts. Currently, crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME. I can’t resize and save a photo, I don’t even do anything fancy. I’m talking “Instagram full” and stock white bg. Crash. Not to mention last handful of months it gets worse and worse with the crap you have to go through in the free version. Before you can save the photo you’ve resized you have to cancel out of an add or upgrade. Then they started making a default watermark, if you turn that off you AGAIN have to decline an upgrade or ad, THEN you can save your picture. You’re not the only app Instasize, get a grip.
Betrayal
by A4J2C0 on 2021/09/06 17:30
I have used this app for many many years. It wasn’t until yesterday that I tried to add the black background to my photo when I realized it now throws the Instasize logo on the bottom of your photo. It’s already enough that you want us to pay for for the interface but now you’re gonna slap your label on it and force us to buy it so we don’t show your logo??? No thank you. *deleted*
Pointless
by nugsandhugs on 2021/09/06 04:08
I just wanted to re size my pic. No buy your premium but apparently I can’t use the app unless I pay for it. Back than I didn’t have to why should I now? Pointless app recommended not to use
SEPTEMBER 2021 BUG
by Wcouselo03 on 2021/09/05 17:19
Please fix current version. Current version has bug. Current version does not allow me to add an additional picture under the full story Instasize feature. The app continues to crash and close automatically once I click to add an additional picture under the Instasize full story feature.

Crashes every time
by Dajo McGee on 2021/08/31 07:26
I just got a new iPhone 12 mini and the app still crashes every time after I select an image to edit. Why can’t I simply resize my image for Instagram?
No free trial
by busilin on 2021/08/30 20:27
The app offering a 3 days fee trial for the year premium subscription, doesn’t allow to use it until you except the “free” trial. So far there is no any “free “ trial, my card was charged immediately for $33.
Better than Adobe!
by kistilantthang01 on 2021/08/30 18:55
‘INSTASIZE’ app quickly took its role as pioneer in the sticker/emoji leading initial start-up. From cropping group takes towards an accord in filtering, is their anything they can’t do? Probably. Adding your favorite stuff to a portrait is definitely their area of expertise. Worth it!
Constantly tries to trick charging you for subscriptions
by Laura letti on 2021/08/30 02:21
This app was good for awhile. Until the pop up to have you subscribe to pay for a subscription kept popping up with no X to get out of it and the payment window pops up so fast so if you don’t move your finger off quick enough it automatically charges you. This is the second time I have had to file a claim with Apple and now deleting this app bc I’m so annoyed
App is trying to make purchases by itself
by JoeyLynn23 on 2021/08/28 04:36
I’d really appreciate it if the app would stop trying to buy the full version on its own. Every time I try to edit a photo and save it or look at it, it pulls up the menu to purchase the full version and nearly buys it because it pops up so fast.
It was nice for a while.
by EpiGuitar on 2021/08/26 16:42
I’ve had the app for some time and it worked okay. The ads were insistent but that was expected for a free version. Recently, though, it won’t let me complete a resize, add a border, and save. It crashes every time. So, I’ve deleted the app.
Really?
by ItWasYanny on 2021/08/26 01:34
I wasn’t aware that I had to agree to try a free trial to the premium subscription to even USE it. I just want to crop my art so it’s not cropped weird on Instagram. I don’t need extra filters.
Tricky system
by diansra on 2021/08/25 23:40
I hate this app. I was trying to save a photo and it snuck in a purchase without my consent. They haven’t refunded me but they need to.
BEWARE
by Ann Marie. on 2021/08/25 14:09
I absolutely have loved this app. I’ve used it almost 10 years forsure. They now trick you saying you get a 3 day free trial however they bill you $30 for the annual fee right away and there’s no way around this if you wanna use the app. It keeps popping up after a while until you purchase it.
Disappointed
by Ramonf95 on 2021/08/25 05:45
I use Instasize for video editing. Now I can’t even get on the app without it asking to sign up. And when I say no, I can’t use the app whatsoever. Talk about disappointment.

App tricks you into paying
by Retarded citizen on 2021/08/21 15:29
Was in the middle of editing a picture and a screen came up and asked to purchase and before I could even read it, I was laying on my side accidentally pressed the power button and the app purchased. Now there is no way to unsubscribe from the app. Just another annoying thing apple users have to deal with on a daily basis.
not anymore
by Dimi772277 on 2021/08/20 18:59
So now you want me to pay $5/month otherwise there will be a watermark on my picture? No, thanks. I’ll find another app. I only use this every once in a while so there’s no justification for such a high cost. If it was a one time $5 purchase I would consider it. Deleting it right now after years of use. Lowered it to one star now after your lazy copied and pasted reply. The same one you give to all customers. You have time to adjust your app and charge a crazy $5/month subscription rate for simple photo editing features but not to actually address your customers. Get lost.
Purchase
by amandaej0223 on 2021/08/19 21:47
Why is it mandatory to get the premium? I can’t use the app for free? The app is FREE for a reason? It’s not letting me use the app until I purchase the subscription.
One time use before paywall

THEY STEAL FROM YOU
by Cale12345654321 on 2021/08/18 23:14
I purchased this app FREE version specifically just for sizing 2 pictures probably around a year ago. Since then they have continuously kept charging or trying to charge my Apple Cash. Not for small amounts either the first 3 charges were for a year subscription. However- for 1.) why would I have 3 yearly subscription for an app I’ve had for 1 year. 2.) the charges were all different amounts. Started at $49.99 when that declined they tried $35.99 then $29.99 charge. So for the supposed “1 YEAR subscription” why was this different amounts & why so close together? I NEVER purchased anything in this. I NEVER got a premium version I did not need or want it. I deleted this app & they continued to try to charge me like I wouldn’t notice? And yet again for different amounts for the same thing such as- Monthly subscription $7.99 tried that twice & when that didn’t work all of a sudden the “1 month subscription” went down to $4.99- this one was tried to my Apple Cash 4 times. Also might I add- these charges were never occurring around the same time of the month like an actual subscription would be. Then all of a sudden I guess my “1 month subscription” went to 1 week & I was tried at being charged $0.99 twice. Just to add again- this was after deleting the app off my phone & trying to figure this out. I’m posting this so they don’t take anyone else’s money. Also I have screenshots I would add on here if I was able to.
i’ve been using this app before you had to pay
by mixtgal on 2021/08/18 13:09
i’ve had this app for yearssssss. and now i can’t even save pictures without their stupid advertisements asking me if i wanna get instasize premium. i’ve only been able to save two pictures in the last few months bc there’s no ‘X’ to back out of the premium instasize ad. FIX IT!

Not free

Will not let me use the free version. Literally no way to cancel out of the screen making you pay $4.99 for premium. Just installed to uninstall.

Is Instasize no longer free???
It works now
by fjhvhffg on 2021/08/09 04:25
At first there was no way to exit out of the subscription pop up. I had to delete the app then re-download it.
Frustrating
by PecanPie8 on 2021/08/08 18:32
The collage aspect simply does not work. After uploading one picture and then pressing the plus signs to add more photos into the frame, it freezes. Every single time. The app becomes non-responsive and I’ve tried it all. Reboot, update, different photos, etc. Every time I try to use the collage maker it just locks up and kicks me out of the app. Maybe if it’s ever fixed I’ll increase my rating.
Rip off
by buttcheese47 on 2021/08/06 12:01

Can’t use the app

The app is advertised as free with an optional premium membership, however it won’t let me passed the free trial page. It’s kind of hard to know if you want the premium membership if you can’t even test the apps basic features.
Can’t even use for free
by Bobsagottttttt on 2021/07/27 14:47
I just redownloaded after I got a new phone and you cannot even make it past the welcome screen of the app without being forced to try the 3 day trial of the premium. I just use this app to crop my Instagram photos and I can’t even do that because it forces you to get the subscription (which I’m not I just deleted the app) this app used to be great
No 3 day trial, charged immediately?
by JustNeedHelpWithApp on 2021/07/27 14:14
Forced to do a 3-day trial just to get in the app again (recently upgraded my phone) and was charged immediately?!
Really?
by alison [: on 2021/07/26 15:11
You can’t even use what was once a free app without going premium and paying for a monthly subscription. I used to use this to resize pictures to fit my lock screen background and nothing else so I refuse to pay for that. Save yourself the frustration and download Square Fit.
Free version is unusable
by NotInLuvWithIt on 2021/07/26 04:57
I have used PS Express by Adobe for an extended period of time. Often the changes I wish to make are minor. I decided to try some alternatives to PS Express. I downloaded this one. The premium version is $5 per month, that’s $60 per year, $120 for two years. That’s in line with a lot of professional services available that may actually be better products. Still I thought, try out the features of this application and see how it is. I did a custom crop. It looks like my custom crop ended up being the cropped part of my photo centered in a black bar and then with a white bar above and below that, not really what I wanted. Well, I thought, so will save it to my iPhone’s camera roll so I can look at it on my phone, maybe post it to social media, see exactly what I got. Well, to save your edits to your phone, you have to subscribe at $5 per month. That’s really too high unless I know the app is at least as good as any of the better I known apps, including PS Expeess by Adobe. I believe with Adobe for a comparable cost I get the entire Adobe Creative Suite and a substantial amount of cloud-based storage. Look, making a free version of your product where I can’t even save a cropped version of an image to my phone, it is cheap and dishonest. Make a usable free version or don’t make a free version. Bad initial experience and impression. Disappointing. Seriously. 👎
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.
Disable in-app purchases to avoid accidental charges
by Tznunu123 on 2021/07/18 17:59
I only use this app to resize photos for IG, and it works great! I don’t really care about the filters or other tools so I can’t say much about them. However, I have noticed that it’s super easy to accidentally purchase the Premium subscription because of how the developers designed their ads to pop up. There were many times when an ad would pop up right as I was in the middle of editing, making me accidentally tap the purchase button. Then it instantly tries to charge my credit card so I have to quickly cancel out of the Apple ID verification before the charge goes through. It’s very annoying and definitely feels a bit scammy. I’ve found that a good workaround to prevent accidental purchases is to just disable in-app purchases on your phone. Go to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions, then tap iTunes & App Store Purchases > In-App Purchases > Don’t Allow. Then, if you accidentally tap one of the ads, a phone notification saying “in-app purchases are not allowed” will pop up, you can close the ad and continue with editing. (Note: this method does block all in-app purchases on your phone, but you can easily toggle on/off the content restrictions.)
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.
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.

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.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
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.
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
The editing part is great but...
by jdbayskbfbd on 2020/06/30 18:46
So I love the editing part it makes my pictures look so much cooler and prettier, but a few minutes into editing, the app just closes. I am pretty mad about that because I worked pretty hard on it and it just deleted all of my progress, but I decided to start again. Within even less time than the last time it exited it did it again! I was super confused and tried one more time, and sure enough it exited. I was very annoyed as the picture was looking very cool, so I tried doing it as fast as I could and within the first 45 secs it just exits and I still try to make cool pictures but I usually never have enough time to make it better, so I think I will just take my business else where, as you should too if it does that to you.
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.”
Disappointed
by kallllls on 2021/07/02 09:24
I have been using this app for 5 years to resize pictures for my Instagram. It has totally went to crap. Every time I try to save a picture it comes up with the option to subscribe and I have to exit out of the app completely to bypass that and save the picture. Also when I go to save the picture it automatically thinks I want to subscribe and pulls up Apple Pay. Good thing I have the double tap feature or else it would have purchased it without warning. I have been dealing with this for about 6 months now, and I didn’t write a review until now because now on all pictures it has an Instasize watermark and if I don’t want that watermark I have to purchase a subscription. I will be uninstalling and finding a different app to do the things I need. I shouldn’t need to purchase a subscription just to resize my photos. It’s ridiculous.
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.
Really terrible app.
by MK 102938 on 2021/06/25 16:39
This app used to be semi-decent for very very very basic functions, although you had to pay to do anything decent with it. Now they’ve absolutely ruined it by trying to trick you into purchasing anytime you do anything (try to save your photo? here, let’s automatically go to the purchase page! trying to click out of the app? here! purchase page! just one click!). It’s deceptive, irritating, and downright stupid... and honestly, a really sad marketing practice that just turns off your potential customers. I immediately deleted after using this. There are so many better apps to try that are FREE without trying to “trick” you into purchasing by accident every five seconds. If you have a small child I would delete this app because it would definitely be very easy for them to purchase this. No good. Wish I could rate 0 stars.
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.
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.
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...
Can't use the app without power purchasing premium
by replacethelamp on 2021/06/07 01:49
I used to use instasze a lot, but for the past few days, I wasn't able to download my photos without accepting the pop-up that asks you to start a free trial. The pop-up was there earlier, but at least it would go away after I hit cancel 4 times on the payment screen. Now, the pop-up never goes away and you can't download your pictures without paying. I tried re-installing the app thinking it might have been a bug, but now I can't even access the landing page without buying a free trial. There is nothing in the app for me to use. If you guys want people to pay for it, just make people pat before downloading, I don't understand what the big deal is? They make it seem like it's free and make you activate the 3 day free trial before you can even open the app.
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??
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.

So deceptive!!! Always making you subscribe when you don’t want to

The subscription keeps popping up at weird times so you mistakenly subscribe for it especially when using fingerprint. I just deleted this app!!!

by Nazi zombie fan on 2021/10/03 02:19
Like many other users, I too have been using this app for years. I really only used it to resize pics. I got a new phone and downloaded the app again on new phone and now I can’t even get passed the “ima force you to pay for subscriptions” screen to just use it to resize a pic. I still have the app on my old phone so now I have to airdrop my photos to that phone and use the app to resize to airdrop it back to the new phone ughh. So ima have to try to find another app to resize photos with.

“Free”
by Good.Hustle.IsntSad on 2021/10/01 17:27
Says it’s free, but when I open the app it prompts me to upgrade to premium, with no way of closing the offer, so I can’t make it past the “upgrade to premium” screen. App is a brick.

I used to use this every now and then. But recently I took it off because I have no purpose for it, I never knew I was paying monthly for it whenever I did not click the option. They are still trying to charge my account when I don’t even have the app anymore. Just not good at all for business to keep charging people when they don’t even have it in their phone anymore.

I’ve tried re installing, shutting my phone down, editing photos in a different order, you name it, but 90% of the time this app shuts down when I try to do simple edits. Complete waste of money when the app doesnt even work, it’s only luck when on my 15th try at a random point in the day it’ll work ONCE. Waste of a purchase I wish I could get my money back!!!
Misleading
by 0912739621 on 2021/09/25 07:29
Free to download but once you open the app you have to put your card info in for a 3 day trial and there’s no way around it. Should not be necessary up just to resize a picture
used to live this app now it’s force subscription
by Jen Duh on 2021/09/24 21:04
I’ve been using the feee version of this app for years, never had a complaint. Now I try to use it & can’t even get in without being forced to subscribe. Such a shame because this was the quickest way to quickly resize without all the unnecessary extra bells & whistles. Hate when a company disregards all previous users & thinks we will pay a subscription just to keep the app. Super disappointed but not surprised!
Totally useless
by EricSerdahl on 2021/09/20 02:02
Very powerful and stupid. No instructions. No clue how to change the photo to have a smaller visual or file size.
Awesome tools, but keeps lagging too much
by Blonde_Merrrmaid on 2021/09/14 06:09
I used to use subscription option, but removed it because it’s insane how many times the app just closed while i was editing and didn’t even save the results! And it just keeps happening for a few years already. Unsubscribed. Now completely deleting the app. Sad. Because tools and filters are awesome
Free version is worthless
by ally_marie123 on 2021/09/14 02:48
The free version used to be really helpful mostly with cropping images to post to Insta. Now they all include a watermark and only have one color option unless you purchase the app.
App crashes
by vaNessa2222 on 2021/09/12 23:22
I used to pay for this app but I’m on the free membership now bc it always crashes
Stole $8 from me

Advertised 3 day free trial but charged me upon agreeing.
You can’t use it unless you buy premium
by crs_choco on 2021/09/10 05:24
You literally can’t get passed the “buy premium now” page. It’s not a free app, you still need to pay $5 a week to use it.
Long time user and subscriber
by Lala_1144 on 2021/09/09 22:59
Fix it! Can’t open the app keeps crashing! I’ve deleted and reinstalled, turned phone off then on. It’s not working. Please fix! Love this app don’t want to have to unsubscribe. 9/9/21 Still can’t open & use the app. If this isn’t fixed soon. I’m gonna cancel my subscription.
Instasize
by Labjr6f5 on 2021/09/09 20:02
I haven’t used Instasize in a while and when I tried to getting out of the app all it would take me to was trying to get me to buy the instasize premium and not letting me click out of it and editing some photos that I want to do
Unsustainable biz model
by 保暖大师 on 2021/09/09 18:13
First I love this app and it’s mostly the only app I used to modify my pics. That’s why I write a comment for an app for the very first time. But, and because I love this app as many ppl who left comments, you can’t force people to pay! I know you have to make money and make investors happy. You are supposed to add MUCH MORE USEFUL & UNIQUE FEATURES for that premium, instead of taking back the old free functions and ask people to pay. Let alone the forcing paying pop up stuff. Please let anyone who went to biz school give this team some suggestions. THIS IS SUICIDE. You are making ppl delete this app they love. Or loved.
Same issue for months on end.
by lrianne25 on 2021/09/07 22:00
I remember installing this months ago, around June I think. From the start I wasn’t able to use the app because it forces you to pay if you wanted to use it. There is no option to use it without paying money (or doing the trial but I’m not trusting no app that can be installed free but doesn’t even have the option to use it freely) Might uninstall soon since every time I try to use it, I’m not able to actually use it. Fix the issue or finally put a price on it BEFORE users install.
Once good, now garbage
by RadAstronaut on 2021/09/07 03:31
I used to love this app. It was free, not overrun with ads, did a great job sizing your photos to fit for social media posts. Currently, crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME. I can’t resize and save a photo, I don’t even do anything fancy. I’m talking “Instagram full” and stock white bg. Crash. Not to mention last handful of months it gets worse and worse with the crap you have to go through in the free version. Before you can save the photo you’ve resized you have to cancel out of an add or upgrade. Then they started making a default watermark, if you turn that off you AGAIN have to decline an upgrade or ad, THEN you can save your picture. You’re not the only app Instasize, get a grip.
Betrayal
by A4J2C0 on 2021/09/06 17:30
I have used this app for many many years. It wasn’t until yesterday that I tried to add the black background to my photo when I realized it now throws the Instasize logo on the bottom of your photo. It’s already enough that you want us to pay for for the interface but now you’re gonna slap your label on it and force us to buy it so we don’t show your logo??? No thank you. *deleted*
Pointless
by nugsandhugs on 2021/09/06 04:08
I just wanted to re size my pic. No buy your premium but apparently I can’t use the app unless I pay for it. Back than I didn’t have to why should I now? Pointless app recommended not to use
SEPTEMBER 2021 BUG
by Wcouselo03 on 2021/09/05 17:19
Please fix current version. Current version has bug. Current version does not allow me to add an additional picture under the full story Instasize feature. The app continues to crash and close automatically once I click to add an additional picture under the Instasize full story feature.

Crashes every time
by Dajo McGee on 2021/08/31 07:26
I just got a new iPhone 12 mini and the app still crashes every time after I select an image to edit. Why can’t I simply resize my image for Instagram?
No free trial
by busilin on 2021/08/30 20:27
The app offering a 3 days fee trial for the year premium subscription, doesn’t allow to use it until you except the “free” trial. So far there is no any “free “ trial, my card was charged immediately for $33.
Better than Adobe!
by kistilantthang01 on 2021/08/30 18:55
‘INSTASIZE’ app quickly took its role as pioneer in the sticker/emoji leading initial start-up. From cropping group takes towards an accord in filtering, is their anything they can’t do? Probably. Adding your favorite stuff to a portrait is definitely their area of expertise. Worth it!
Constantly tries to trick charging you for subscriptions
by Laura letti on 2021/08/30 02:21
This app was good for awhile. Until the pop up to have you subscribe to pay for a subscription kept popping up with no X to get out of it and the payment window pops up so fast so if you don’t move your finger off quick enough it automatically charges you. This is the second time I have had to file a claim with Apple and now deleting this app bc I’m so annoyed
App is trying to make purchases by itself
by JoeyLynn23 on 2021/08/28 04:36
I’d really appreciate it if the app would stop trying to buy the full version on its own. Every time I try to edit a photo and save it or look at it, it pulls up the menu to purchase the full version and nearly buys it because it pops up so fast.
It was nice for a while.
by EpiGuitar on 2021/08/26 16:42
I’ve had the app for some time and it worked okay. The ads were insistent but that was expected for a free version. Recently, though, it won’t let me complete a resize, add a border, and save. It crashes every time. So, I’ve deleted the app.
Really?
by ItWasYanny on 2021/08/26 01:34
I wasn’t aware that I had to agree to try a free trial to the premium subscription to even USE it. I just want to crop my art so it’s not cropped weird on Instagram. I don’t need extra filters.
Tricky system
by diansra on 2021/08/25 23:40
I hate this app. I was trying to save a photo and it snuck in a purchase without my consent. They haven’t refunded me but they need to.
BEWARE
by Ann Marie. on 2021/08/25 14:09
I absolutely have loved this app. I’ve used it almost 10 years forsure. They now trick you saying you get a 3 day free trial however they bill you $30 for the annual fee right away and there’s no way around this if you wanna use the app. It keeps popping up after a while until you purchase it.
Disappointed
by Ramonf95 on 2021/08/25 05:45

App tricks you into paying
by Retarded citizen on 2021/08/21 15:29
Was in the middle of editing a picture and a screen came up and asked to purchase and before I could even read it, I was laying on my side accidentally pressed the power button and the app purchased. Now there is no way to unsubscribe from the app. Just another annoying thing apple users have to deal with on a daily basis.
not anymore
by Dimi772277 on 2021/08/20 18:59
So now you want me to pay $5/month otherwise there will be a watermark on my picture? No, thanks. I’ll find another app. I only use this every once in a while so there’s no justification for such a high cost. If it was a one time $5 purchase I would consider it. Deleting it right now after years of use. Lowered it to one star now after your lazy copied and pasted reply. The same one you give to all customers. You have time to adjust your app and charge a crazy $5/month subscription rate for simple photo editing features but not to actually address your customers. Get lost.
Purchase
by amandaej0223 on 2021/08/19 21:47
Why is it mandatory to get the premium? I can’t use the app for free? The app is FREE for a reason? It’s not letting me use the app until I purchase the subscription.
One time use before paywall

THEY STEAL FROM YOU
by Cale12345654321 on 2021/08/18 23:14
I purchased this app FREE version specifically just for sizing 2 pictures probably around a year ago. Since then they have continuously kept charging or trying to charge my Apple Cash. Not for small amounts either the first 3 charges were for a year subscription. However- for 1.) why would I have 3 yearly subscription for an app I’ve had for 1 year. 2.) the charges were all different amounts. Started at $49.99 when that declined they tried $35.99 then $29.99 charge. So for the supposed “1 YEAR subscription” why was this different amounts & why so close together? I NEVER purchased anything in this. I NEVER got a premium version I did not need or want it. I deleted this app & they continued to try to charge me like I wouldn’t notice? And yet again for different amounts for the same thing such as- Monthly subscription $7.99 tried that twice & when that didn’t work all of a sudden the “1 month subscription” went down to $4.99- this one was tried to my Apple Cash 4 times. Also might I add- these charges were never occurring around the same time of the month like an actual subscription would be. Then all of a sudden I guess my “1 month subscription” went to 1 week & I was tried at being charged $0.99 twice. Just to add again- this was after deleting the app off my phone & trying to figure this out. I’m posting this so they don’t take anyone else’s money. Also I have screenshots I would add on here if I was able to.
i’ve been using this app before you had to pay
by mixtgal on 2021/08/18 13:09

Frustrating
by PecanPie8 on 2021/08/08 18:32
The collage aspect simply does not work. After uploading one picture and then pressing the plus signs to add more photos into the frame, it freezes. Every single time. The app becomes non-responsive and I’ve tried it all. Reboot, update, different photos, etc. Every time I try to use the collage maker it just locks up and kicks me out of the app. Maybe if it’s ever fixed I’ll increase my rating.
Rip off

by Toashes6422 on 2021/07/27 22:58
The app is advertised as free with an optional premium membership, however it won’t let me passed the free trial page. It’s kind of hard to know if you want the premium membership if you can’t even test the apps basic features.

by Bobsagottttttt on 2021/07/27 14:47
I just redownloaded after I got a new phone and you cannot even make it past the welcome screen of the app without being forced to try the 3 day trial of the premium. I just use this app to crop my Instagram photos and I can’t even do that because it forces you to get the subscription (which I’m not I just deleted the app) this app used to be great
No 3 day trial, charged immediately?

You can’t even use what was once a free app without going premium and paying for a monthly subscription. I used to use this to resize pictures to fit my lock screen background and nothing else so I refuse to pay for that. Save yourself the frustration and download Square Fit.
Free version is unusable
by NotInLuvWithIt on 2021/07/26 04:57
I have used PS Express by Adobe for an extended period of time. Often the changes I wish to make are minor. I decided to try some alternatives to PS Express. I downloaded this one. The premium version is $5 per month, that’s $60 per year, $120 for two years. That’s in line with a lot of professional services available that may actually be better products. Still I thought, try out the features of this application and see how it is. I did a custom crop. It looks like my custom crop ended up being the cropped part of my photo centered in a black bar and then with a white bar above and below that, not really what I wanted. Well, I thought, so will save it to my iPhone’s camera roll so I can look at it on my phone, maybe post it to social media, see exactly what I got. Well, to save your edits to your phone, you have to subscribe at $5 per month. That’s really too high unless I know the app is at least as good as any of the better I known apps, including PS Expeess by Adobe. I believe with Adobe for a comparable cost I get the entire Adobe Creative Suite and a substantial amount of cloud-based storage. Look, making a free version of your product where I can’t even save a cropped version of an image to my phone, it is cheap and dishonest. Make a usable free version or don’t make a free version. Bad initial experience and impression. Disappointing. Seriously. 👎
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.
Disable in-app purchases to avoid accidental charges
by Tznunu123 on 2021/07/18 17:59
I only use this app to resize photos for IG, and it works great! I don’t really care about the filters or other tools so I can’t say much about them. However, I have noticed that it’s super easy to accidentally purchase the Premium subscription because of how the developers designed their ads to pop up. There were many times when an ad would pop up right as I was in the middle of editing, making me accidentally tap the purchase button. Then it instantly tries to charge my credit card so I have to quickly cancel out of the Apple ID verification before the charge goes through. It’s very annoying and definitely feels a bit scammy. I’ve found that a good workaround to prevent accidental purchases is to just disable in-app purchases on your phone. Go to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions, then tap iTunes & App Store Purchases > In-App Purchases > Don’t Allow. Then, if you accidentally tap one of the ads, a phone notification saying “in-app purchases are not allowed” will pop up, you can close the ad and continue with editing. (Note: this method does block all in-app purchases on your phone, but you can easily toggle on/off the content restrictions.)
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.
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.
Free version is unusable
by NotInLuvWithIt on 2021/07/26 04:57
I have used PS Express by Adobe for an extended period of time. Often the changes I wish to make are minor. I decided to try some alternatives to PS Express. I downloaded this one. The premium version is $5 per month, that’s $60 per year, $120 for two years. That’s in line with a lot of professional services available that may actually be better products. Still I thought, try out the features of this application and see how it is. I did a custom crop. It looks like my custom crop ended up being the cropped part of my photo centered in a black bar and then with a white bar above and below that, not really what I wanted. Well, I thought, so will save it to my iPhone’s camera roll so I can look at it on my phone, maybe post it to social media, see exactly what I got. Well, to save your edits to your phone, you have to subscribe at $5 per month. That’s really too high unless I know the app is at least as good as any of the better I known apps, including PS Expeess by Adobe. I believe with Adobe for a comparable cost I get the entire Adobe Creative Suite and a substantial amount of cloud-based storage. Look, making a free version of your product where I can’t even save a cropped version of an image to my phone, it is cheap and dishonest. Make a usable free version or don’t make a free version. Bad initial experience and impression. Disappointing. Seriously. 👎
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.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
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.
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
The editing part is great but...
by jdbayskbfbd on 2020/06/30 18:46
So I love the editing part it makes my pictures look so much cooler and prettier, but a few minutes into editing, the app just closes. I am pretty mad about that because I worked pretty hard on it and it just deleted all of my progress, but I decided to start again. Within even less time than the last time it exited it did it again! I was super confused and tried one more time, and sure enough it exited. I was very annoyed as the picture was looking very cool, so I tried doing it as fast as I could and within the first 45 secs it just exits and I still try to make cool pictures but I usually never have enough time to make it better, so I think I will just take my business else where, as you should too if it does that to you.
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.”
Disappointed
by kallllls on 2021/07/02 09:24
I have been using this app for 5 years to resize pictures for my Instagram. It has totally went to crap. Every time I try to save a picture it comes up with the option to subscribe and I have to exit out of the app completely to bypass that and save the picture. Also when I go to save the picture it automatically thinks I want to subscribe and pulls up Apple Pay. Good thing I have the double tap feature or else it would have purchased it without warning. I have been dealing with this for about 6 months now, and I didn’t write a review until now because now on all pictures it has an Instasize watermark and if I don’t want that watermark I have to purchase a subscription. I will be uninstalling and finding a different app to do the things I need. I shouldn’t need to purchase a subscription just to resize my photos. It’s ridiculous.
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.
Really terrible app.
by MK 102938 on 2021/06/25 16:39
This app used to be semi-decent for very very very basic functions, although you had to pay to do anything decent with it. Now they’ve absolutely ruined it by trying to trick you into purchasing anytime you do anything (try to save your photo? here, let’s automatically go to the purchase page! trying to click out of the app? here! purchase page! just one click!). It’s deceptive, irritating, and downright stupid... and honestly, a really sad marketing practice that just turns off your potential customers. I immediately deleted after using this. There are so many better apps to try that are FREE without trying to “trick” you into purchasing by accident every five seconds. If you have a small child I would delete this app because it would definitely be very easy for them to purchase this. No good. Wish I could rate 0 stars.
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.
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.
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.....

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...
Can't use the app without power purchasing premium
by replacethelamp on 2021/06/07 01:49
I used to use instasze a lot, but for the past few days, I wasn't able to download my photos without accepting the pop-up that asks you to start a free trial. The pop-up was there earlier, but at least it would go away after I hit cancel 4 times on the payment screen. Now, the pop-up never goes away and you can't download your pictures without paying. I tried re-installing the app thinking it might have been a bug, but now I can't even access the landing page without buying a free trial. There is nothing in the app for me to use. If you guys want people to pay for it, just make people pat before downloading, I don't understand what the big deal is? They make it seem like it's free and make you activate the 3 day free trial before you can even open the app.
Awesome!

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??
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.
