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

Cancellations is complicated i Beeen trying to cancel for months
Love the app

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

I love the text editor of this app.

Changes
by Nye👑 on 2021/04/04 01:20
I used to use this app all the time and now I can’t open the app without subscribing I feel like they’re forcing you to purchase the app to be able to still use it. And now that I accidentally went over my trial they charged my account $32 but now that I’m opening the app they want me to resubscribe for next year to be able to use the app even though I’m already subscribed for a whole year
Doesn’t always work
by kalyau on 2021/04/02 22:06
After I edit my photo and go to save it to my photos, I frequently get an error message and it won’t let me save my photo. This is very annoying. As I’m typing this review I can’t even see the letters as I’m typing. Ugh
Shady
by khfrhb on 2021/04/02 07:14
I have accidentally purchased premium over 10 times because they trick you with applying your thumbprint to purchase when you’re trying to just save the photo to your phone. Garbage.
blurry pictures
by a13you on 2021/04/02 00:49
the pictures are mad blurry when saved to camera roll. they look nun like how it does in the app.
I don’t want this app
by MARGWA ZOMBIE on 2021/04/01 16:49
Should be a free app. Hard to cancel
Enough with the subscription spam
by kategoodrich555555555 on 2021/03/31 22:30
This app was the best until they started shoving subscriptions down your throat to a point where you’re unable to click away every single time you open the app
Overcharged
by _Anthoonhy_ on 2021/03/31 08:13
I was to supposed to have a 3 days free trial and the charged me 29.99 for a whole year!
i couldn’t use the app unless i got the 3 day FREE trial!
by briana.neff on 2021/03/29 05:58
the app wouldn’t let me get into it unless i started a three day free trial, so i started the trial and the app charged me $32.16! i used to constantly use this app, but if customer support doesn’t refund me my money, they’ll be losing a very frequent user.
Faulty app
by summerleeannarnold on 2021/03/27 20:49
They charged me $5.99 for a monthly subscription I didn’t authorize and now the Contact Us Now button isn’t working. I’m trying to cancel that subscription so they can’t keep taking my money and they think messing up the app will stop me? Lol
Only could give it one star
by melbel3392 on 2021/03/27 02:37
I love this app but I could only give it one star cuz it keeps CRASHING!
Trash
by Mc28mc on 2021/03/26 15:39
Suddenly you can’t use the app without upgrading?? The screen just doesn’t go away and there’s no way to exit it.
What do I do?!
by itsyourgirljo on 2021/03/26 08:21
I’ve had this app for years now just to add a background to my pictures and that was all. One day the app just stopped working and it won’t let me use it anymore without subscribing. I’ve uninstalled and installed it once again and the same thing is still happening. What could i possibly do?! I always loved using this app but it just gets so frustrating.
Meh
by mtothectothel on 2021/03/26 01:17
I used to love this app! They’ve gotten too fancy with their updates and their editing tools just don’t work great anymore. They also used to let you lay out your photos in a grid like your IG pages so you could map out the visualization of your posts. Now the grid is all weird and defeats the purpose I used to use this app for 👎🏼
Loved until they started adding logo to exports
by Kai12588 on 2021/03/25 13:55
Will not continue using
Costo
by Phanie2929 on 2021/03/24 03:54
Me encantaba podía bajar mis filtros y podía comprar si quería otros (opcional) pero ahora la página que tanto me gustaba para editar ahora está cobrando hasta por guardarte la imagen... que tienes que pagar al año o al mes cierra cantidad. De lo contrario screnshot o no puedes guardar tu imagen
Subscription nightmare
by nbean11 on 2021/03/24 00:27
Apple says I have a subscription but I can access any of the features. When I click upgrade - it fails. When I click login- it fails. When I click “contact us” - it fails. When I try to reset my password - it fails. This is a scam.
HORRIBLE SCAM!
by Lol81 on 2021/03/23 23:52
I never signed up for a subscription with this App. All of a sudden, I’m being charged $4.99 for premium without notice, or my permission! Beware! It doesn’t even give you the option of unsubscribing. My section to unsubscribe has been grayed out, forcing me to contact the developer.
Review
by jrbcrb152020 on 2021/03/22 03:47
Absolutely love this app. The free version alone has always been so useful.
Scam
by Ktttttt13 on 2021/03/21 21:50
I’ve had this app for almost 5/6 years now. I used to use it all the time and it was a life saver but now you’re required to buy premium to use any feature of the app. I was charged 3 times for one month and I’m still dealing with the refund process. Very disappointing and I would never recommend this app.
functions lost
by Timsharks on 2021/03/21 18:29
The function of increase the size of the photo is removed from the current version.
Doesn’t restore
by The Blankman on 2021/03/21 14:36
App doesn’t work. All my pictures gone after buying full version. Doesn’t save or restore. So frustrating
It’s a joke
by bobfagget on 2021/03/21 11:15
They’re constantly taking things like filters but asking for money ?? So often they ask for money I literally have to leave the app and clear it from my queue in order to crop my pictures and save them.
Scam
by Wn4k on 2021/03/19 18:21
Downloaded this app and it said free three day trial, was instantly charged 31 dollars! Didn’t even use the app, scam, stay away
App not working
by MelySchotte on 2021/03/18 23:36
This app isn’t working at all. I bought the year subscription and it keeps kicking me out, won’t even load! Might have lost all my photo edits!
Don’t download
by omg stop charging me on 2021/03/16 12:12
App charges you for premium but there is no way to cancel.
Not FREE
by BabykatecAkes on 2021/03/16 04:30
I have used this app for YEARS and have always loved it. I only ever used it to resize my photos to fit my lock screen and Instagram. I rarely used the backgrounds and never used the filters and I was okay with that. However, now you can’t even use the app without paying for premium. And I’m not going to pay for premium just to use the “free” features. Ridiculous.
Does not let me use the free one
by abmee71 on 2021/03/15 17:03
I’ve had Instasize for years recently got a new phone & doesn’t let me use the free version it’s making me pay if I want to use it please help

i never wanted to subscribe to y’all $4.99 a month plan. but it did it automatically and my card got put in the negatives for something i cancelled a free days later when i noticed , i never even used it : so thanks a lot ✋🏻

My app is crashing with the new update.
by So, twitter... on 2021/03/12 22:29
I’m trying to edit a photo and every time I hit the + it crashes. This is the third time over the past couple weeks where this has happened. I have a new phone (iPhone 11) with the new update. What’s going on?
Rip off
by Tatii2017 on 2021/03/12 15:10
Had this app on my old phone just got a new phone and I tried downloading the app again and now I can’t even use it without having to pay for subscription but yet the app says it’s free. So disappointed! Going to have to delete this app since I have to pay for subscription when app clearly says it’s free
A joke.
by wiikstrom on 2021/03/11 22:08
I have had this app on and off for years. And now it’s a subscription service. I did the 3 day trial and now I accidentally paid 30 dollars. I want a refund. I don’t want to pay for something that you can do for free on other apps. Give me my refund.
Keep on crashing
by ichenl on 2021/03/11 20:47
Before it would just crash many times when I saved the videos. Today it just freezes upon opening the app, so bad that I can’t even close the app. So frustrating!
Terrible

Subscription???
by Jjjoc22 on 2021/03/11 09:59
I use to love this app I would only use the free customizations but now you have you subscribe to even get in. Don’t waste your time downloading. Trust me.
Stop trying to force me to pay for premium!
by Demon_Tendy on 2021/03/11 02:18
As soon as I go to hit the save option, it brings up the App Store purchase screen, if my finger would’ve hit the home button I’d be screwed. I like Instasize, but now there’s too many pop ups that could lead me to accidentally buying something.
Tries to force you to buy “premium” version CONSTANTLY
by westredg on 2021/03/10 22:12
Every time I save a photo, before I get the “save to camera roll” option, it’s trying to push the membership on me, like dude I don’t need it, relax
I’m annoyed

I accidentally subscribed to a premium membership and the app doesn’t load anything, making me unable to cancel it. Please help.
Money Hungry
by Ayereeeesesds on 2021/03/10 20:55
I’ve used this awesome app for YEAAARS and now it’s forcing you to pay money to use it. It was so easy and had amazing features but like everything else it wants you to pay money to use it. Such a waste of an app

Unwanted continuing membership
by dee2497 on 2021/03/09 14:06
I’ve had this app close to 2 years now and it charges me a monthly fee. I’ve tried to contact the help center to cancel my membership but they told me it has to be done on my end... I would have done that but it forced a log out and will not log back into my account. The app will not send me any log in info or any help gaining access to my account. I would save your time and money and get a different app.
Good app sneaky membership add
by gracek15 on 2021/03/09 06:13
I like the app but I just found out that I was charged for the premium membership when I dont even have an account to set up. How do I cancel a membership when I don’t even have any account to log into. I want my $5 back.
Works sometimes
by MrsErinP on 2021/03/08 17:29

DO NOT DOWNLOAD! *reason below*
by Super1number on 2021/03/07 14:29
Impossible to get pass paid screen. It will keep trying to get you to do a “3 day free trial” in which they Bill you immediately. The “developer” will say you should be able to opt out; however, it is no exit options on the screen. They are aware of this but will not fix it because they need the money. Do not download this app & all of the high star ratings (anyone greater than 3) have either paid or used the app before this trash update. 0/10 would never recommend, go to a different app!
Fraud
by TraderNY on 2021/03/06 17:16
The app launches an Apple Pay purchase/subscription screen after saving a photo. One thing is to ask you to subscribe and a different one to hijack one of the two steps required for a purchase. This is attempted fraud
Love it!

Stopping working
by taylord19951995 on 2021/03/06 06:25
The app opens and closes right up don’t understand why this is happening hopefully it will get fixed
Unable to use free version
by Meg.Oreo on 2021/03/03 20:47
This app frustrates me like none other. You can create one photo collage for free. But when you create your second collage they hit you with a screen that commands you to purchase a membership. You cannot exit out of this screen, and therefore you cannot save your second collage or make any others! This completely makes this free version useless! If only I could give the app zero stars.
Update
by B2daT on 2021/03/03 15:54
I don’t like how The new update when I used it has Instasize on the picture didn’t notice till I already posted it on Instagram looks tacky IMO
Would give zero stars if I could.
by raafman on 2021/03/03 06:17
This app tries to trick you into paying for a recurring subscription when you save a photo. It’s trash.
I use to love this app.....
by Britt Chey on 2021/03/03 01:38
This app use to be my absolute favorite when resizing and adding borders to my Instagram photos. Now there are only a hand full of free options. I had many downloaded before the app went to subscription. Why take them away? I think there should be more free options to see if the subscription is worth it. I wanted to use the film border, but I’m not going to pay $4.99 to use one filter. Let us test more out.
PREMIUM ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE
by JordynCT on 2021/03/01 23:55
It says “free photo editor” - when you download app it only gives you option to start a 3 day free trial and after that you must pay for premium.. Wasn’t always like this, I used to recommend this app, now I don’t.
Charges.
by kellydeiob on 2021/03/01 20:20
I Like How It Says 3 Day Free Trial But Is Trying To Charge Me Right Off Bat... Scams Aren’t Cool.. Bad Ratings.
Imposible to reset my password
by culeraaaaaa on 2021/03/01 04:08
I’ve been trying to log into my account and it continues to tell me my password is invalid. When I try to reset, the app continues to say an email has been sent but I’m not receiving anything. Frustrating.

Doesn’t even allow me to open the App!
by Patricia1113 on 2021/02/28 21:20
I used to love this app! But awhile back I updated the app and it just stopped working. It didn’t even allow me to open the app. I tried everything, but it still didn’t work. So I permanently deleted the app. Fast forward to a couple of months later. I still haven’t found an app that is as good as this one, so I decided to give it another opportunity. But I still have the same issue 😭😭 and this is a new phone too.
Basically unusable

Bad and unsustainable biz model
by 保暖大师 on 2021/02/25 08:19
First I love this app and it’s mostly the only app I used to modify my pics. And that’s why it deserves a five star. Second, and because I love this app as many ppl who left comments, I know you have to make money to make investors happy. But 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. God sake please let anyone went to biz school give this team some suggestions. THIS IS SUICIDE FOR AN APP. You are making ppl delete this app they love. Or loved.
I can’t use the app

What happened? :(
by parichan28 on 2021/02/23 08:41
I used to use this app because for its amazing Text Styles feature for my Instagram stories. Here I am, trying to make a new story cover for my profile and now , the font styles are gone. What on earth happened? Is there no way to bring it back? :(
TERRIBLE
by jayorio on 2021/02/23 01:57

Crashing like crazy
by Musclebear2013 on 2021/02/22 21:13
Ever since the last update the app crashes like crazy. Ive deleted it and reinstalled it but still major issues.
Deceptive
by xG2LoveATLx on 2021/02/22 14:05
Uses deceptive measures to steal your money. For example, while you’re downloading a photo you created in free version the fingerprint will pop up asking to subscribe in a way that causes you to hesitate. That’s just one of many. Stop stealing my money and give me refunds.
Ok
by ohmywhatawasteofmoney on 2021/02/22 12:58
Thanks for tricking us into paying for your useless subscription by putting it directly in the way of saving a photo! What a waste of $4.99!!
Easy to use
by JackBerzerker on 2021/02/22 12:34
Good easy to use app with most basic editing functions.
Shady App
by HughMenbing on 2021/02/22 02:56
This app definitely does what it says it does, however one constantly has to decline the app’s invasive attempts to bill you for their “premium” paid offering, which is wholly unnecessary if all you need this app for is platform specific cropping/resizing. Used it once and deleted immediately...
Poor
by moetayled on 2021/02/21 22:52
I keep trying to save my photos, but because I’m not a premium member I have to watch an advertisement before saving which is fine, but it never loads!! It’s like a trap to get you to pay for premium.
Product is finew.
by cownslur1 on 2021/02/21 15:42
... but there’s no way to stop your subscription. Website/support/App Store dont offer options to cancel. Only renewals.
Crash Crash Crash.
by JLJMW on 2021/02/21 15:35
I have carried a subscription for many years. This has been my favorite app up until about a year ago.. it constantly crashes. It use to only crash when I would do some beauty touch ups then tried to apply a filter. So for the past year I have had to do my touch ups then save. Make my adjustments.. then save. Then pick my filter. Today I can’t even get anything to save, or look at my previous edits without the app crashing. At this point it’s not worth the money. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max with enough power to handle quite a bit of computing. I can’t imagine having an older phone. Please fix this app so I don’t have to cancel my yearly subscription that is due to be up next month.
Premium Page ?
by Chelscoupons on 2021/02/21 14:32
How do I get past the premium add on the screen when I download the app? I have downloaded twice trying to edit pictures I do not use this app enough to buy premium and I need to edit photos. There is no “X” to exit off of the premium add .. I have tried swiping up and sideways to exit off the screen. I’ve tried pressing continue. It seems as though the only way to get off that add is to press continue to buy the app. I searched Google to see if the app was still free to use and it says it’s still free to use basic features. Why can’t I access them? How do I get off this premium add?!!?

Purchased restore
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/10/24 04:26
It is sad when companies promise something and don’t keep there promise. I purchased the no add function before they went to subscription as I loved the app for there ability to resize pictures. I do not use filters at all. Up to recently, I would still mark the app at 4 stars as I had no adds. Now that is impossible. Every time I resize a photo it gives me adds. Restore does no good. Not sure what else I can do but tell the world as they don’t want to fix the problem. I tried to contact them but got no help. Why should I pay for premium to get the one thing I purchased and the only thing I use. The no add function. They told me that if I sent copy of receipt they would fix the add problem. So much for promises. Even giving them the receipt does not work as they said they would not do this after I sent the receipt. They are not honoring there promise to me when I originally purchased no adds from them. In addition it still says you can purchase no adds but my purchase is not being honored. This makes no sense to me.
This is a rip-off
by Madi is lit on 2019/01/18 01:13
I installed instasize a very long time ago because I could edit videos as well as pictures using cool filters and editing tools. I do remember that I had problems with ads in the past and that I was working with a very limited editing and filter selection, which made me extremely sad. So I deleted the app. It resurfaced on my dash because some of my friends started downloading this app. It was advertised so well that I thought of getting this app again. I was offered over 80 filters and cool editing tools and I could not believe it. So I downloaded it and I instantly regret it. In order to use the app to its full creative extent, I have to pay unnecessary money. I have an even more limited amount of filters than when I first downloaded the app, and I can barely even get through editing a picture without so many ads popping up. Honestly, it’s like the app is infested with ads. I would have considered the continual use of it bad there been an upfront price I could pay instead of a subscription. This ain’t some high end product deserving of even considering a subscription. It’s best to just stick with VSCO because there at you least have a good amount of filters, there aren’t ads, and no subscription. They have options to purchase filters and the prices are manageable. This app has disappointed me a second time and I won’t let there be a third time. A waste of space on my phone.
Refuse to pay monthly for an editing app
by only here for the reviews on 2020/05/07 12:15
I had always used Instasize to edit all of my pictures, it was my all time favorite editing app. Mainly because I loved that I could use the app to adjust the size of any picture to fit my lock screen. I also only used the same few filters and features so the free version was perfect for me. Although the constant premium adds were a tad bit annoying because they popped up every time I tried to save my pictures, but they were bearable because the app used to be quick and easy to use. However, the app became increasingly more annoying, time consuming and harder to use because of all the premium adds. It got to the point to were I couldn’t save any photos because I “had” to upgrade to premium, and I refuse to pay a monthly prescription when I only use three of the features. I then came to the conclusion there MUST be a glitch with my favorite editing app so I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and boy I was wrong. Now I cannot even use the app without going premium, it offers a 3 day free trial and then it’s a monthly prescription. Since when did instasize become so money oriented that a free version, even if it was ad infested and offered very limited features, isn’t even offered? Very disappointed and will be looking for a new editor because I refuse to pay for three basic editing features.
love it, but ugh
by Maddiebaddie_cheerandtumblr on 2018/08/08 01:26
i’ve used instasize for YEARS now, before they ever had the subscription deal, and before you had to make an account for instasize. i used it so much that i purchased about 3-5 different filter packs about a year or two ago. but recently, the developers changed to a monthly subscription instead of buying certain packs. when they did that, i lost all the filters i bought. i would gladly get the subscription, but i already spent about $10+ on filters i used constantly that were just taken from me, and i’m also a teen who doesn’t have a job, so i can’t exactly always have the money for said subscription. i tried emailing the company about this, because it really irritates me that i spent money......on basically nothing now, but it wouldn’t go through, in a way that makes me think the email listed in the app description doesn’t work. i want to know if these filters can somehow be restored or something, because i even hit “restore purchases” and nothing happened. idk if it’s because i didn’t have an instasize account or what, but it’s really, really frustrating. ***edit: problem solved!!! amazing customer service, seriously it’s unreal, and it’s still the best app i’ve ever used for editing !!!
Not sure if they are trying to scam people or if it’s a glitch
by Annbanan122 on 2020/05/03 05:59
So I was already pretty upset that one of my favorite editing apps took away some features and started asking for money. Usually when I save a picture an add to buy premium will pop up and I’ll just exit out and save to camera roll, no problem. As of recently when I got to save my picture the add that pops up when I got to save my picture will be invisible, that or the save to camera roll button has been changed to PURCHASE premium. When tapping save to camera roll it will ask for my finger print to buy premium. On multiple occasions I have almost pressed the home button to exit out. Which would have then purchased premium without my consent. I’ve used the app so much that when I do a quick edit I just zoom through the steps to save my picture so I’ve come very close to accidentally buying premium multiple times, and honestly I can’t afford premium at all, nor would I ever want to pay for it. I really hope it’s just a bug, because it would be a pretty sketchy thing for them to do to get people to accidentally buy premium!
Awesome
by Freedomgirl44 on 2017/12/23 01:21
Honestly I love using this app! It gives me the option of using soo many things for free! I would however love if their were more backgrounds available... for example like a birthday background or a celebration background for those special pictures that you want to post about someone else's birthday or even yours! THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME BACKGROUND!! Keep up the good work! ***UPDATED MY APP SO NEEDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW*** I do love that the creators of this app took my advice on adding Birthday backgrounds that you can customize and new backgrounds for certain holidays. I’m disappointed that they took that and decided you can only add those certain filters if you pay for the app for every month or if you do the trial. I remember that you used to be able to download them and use them for the holidays and they would disappear after a certain time. Oh well. As much as I love this app because it’s so easy to use it looks like I might need to look into a new app for my pictures. It was good while it lasted. Thank you for considering my ideas though. It’s nice to know that their are people that listen to one persons feedback.
Was a great app
by thetashalee on 2018/10/09 01:50
Like other reviewers, I’ve been using this app for years to edit pictures. And now since the most recent update, I noticed one of my favorite (free) filters was gone. Then I realized nearly half of the free filters were removed! This was such a great free app to use, and I always recommended it to people. I tried the premium free trial before, and I even paid for it for a few months because I liked the extra features. But I decided that I didn’t need to be spending the extra money, and would continue to just use the free features because they were enough for me. But now it seems like InstaSize is only in it to get money out of people. Rather than providing a great free app for people to quickly edit pictures on the go (and choose to pay for the premium services/add-ons at their OWN convenience), it’s now a never-ending stream of ads trying to convince you to pay for their premium service, all while slowly taking away more “free” features, until you have no choice but to pay. 👎🏻
What free membership?
by Joreeses on 2019/07/02 14:29
I’ve been using this app since I have had an instagram to edit my photos, make them square without cropping, and make collages. I loved this app for these features. I have never bought any of the filter packs or paid for a premium membership since I’m not an instagram model or have any reason to put too much effort into editing pictures. However, this app still advertises the presence of a free membership, but does not seem to allow even basic use without premium membership. I have only been trying to use this app to place photos on a square, white background so I could post them without cropping. Whenever I try to download the image, a pop up comes up advertising the premium membership, but there is no way to skip, continue, or otherwise leave this add without closing out of the app. My question is: why advertise a free, basic membership but not allow users to actually use basic functionality? I have been using and have loved this app for years, but it looks like I’ll have to find a different one.
Subscription button scam
by Lacey Kingry on 2019/04/22 13:56
I typically only use this app to resize my photos for IG. None of the fancy filters or borders just a plain white background so there’s zero need for me to purchase the subscription. However, I uninstalled the app today because they make the subscription button THE BIGGEST BUTTON on the page when you first open the app. When I accidentally clicked it today and then tried to just hit my home button to get out of the app my fingerprint and payment was approved and BOOM! I had a subscription without even opting for one 🙃 if it wasn’t for the 7 day trial period my card would’ve been charged before I could’ve cancelled the subscription. Seems to me with it being the biggest of the two buttons on the screen that they’re banking on people accidentally hitting it and signing up for a subscription that they didn’t even care for. I understand the need to advertise for it to make a profit but don’t be skeezy about it. If I could report this app I would and I’ll be using a different app for my resizing needs from now on.
Used to be great
by adria1130 on 2020/10/10 23:03
I used to love this app and it did exactly what I needed, just sized down my photos, I never use the filters or text or any of the other stuff available but it was cool that it was offered and then out of no where these ads just kept playing before and after every picture edit, and I’m not talking about 5 second ads these go from 30 seconds to a minute and a half every time, it takes longer to get through the ad then it doesn’t for me to make my picture the size I want. And I get it you want people to pay for your app but the price is not worth what you actually get, especially if you are only using it for the sizing and nothing else, personally I suggest stop being greedy and those who need it will pay for it or honestly make it a one time purchase of $4.99 because what you actually offer isn’t worth a monthly subscription, not when we can just go find another app to do the same thing that won’t smother us in pointless ads that don’t “force” us to buy just make us uninstall
HATE THIS.
by Luvdisgameeeee!101 on 2019/04/25 22:30
Let me start off by saying I’ve used Instasize for at least the last 6-7 years maybe even more. When I discovered it I fell in LOVE. I was able to edit photos, make collages, easy handling and it was completely wonderful. I NEVER EVER HAD A COMPLAINT. That is until NOW. The update is completely and utterly trash!!!!! DO NOT DO IT. I used to be able to make collages and now for some awesome reason the photos before I hit to save magically change and all are distorted. Also I hate that I lost trim and have to make it myself. Whoever thought of this genius idea was a flipping IDIOT. I now will be spending money on other apps because this one seems to have lost the flipping bar. I’ve told hundreds of people to use this app, and now I’ll make sure to tell everyone not to. It’s BS. I’ve lost a lot of my filters, I can’t make collages, and I lost the design that brought me to insta. HORRIBLE. Horrible. HORRRIBLE. Y’all see what happened to Snapchat when they changed, it’s now back to normal. Hopefully whatever idiot you have building this crap app fixes it. If not by instasize wont wanna see ya EVER AGAIN.
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.
AWESOME APP!
by Abigail Villena on 2017/11/10 18:03
I have used several apps for editing and or making collages or editing videos but this is the best one thus far. It was introduced to me by my best friend who is a Design Director for Tiger text. She also recommended I try to become an Ambassador as well which I did and got accepted into the program. I love how the app has so many options yet so organized and easy to navigate through. As a Registered Nurse I am obligated to chart every shift and use a phone app called Mobile Heart beat which are pretty out of date compared to my millenial standard of how technology works. When I’m outside of work and come across apps that are easy to navigate through and can do multiple things I’m all for it. Thank you InstaSize!
Need app support please.
by Crashbashenginehash on 2021/01/01 17:54
This app was working great. Not so much now on my iPhone 12. After I apply a filter sometimes it will let me save my work, other times it just shuts the app down without saving changes. I do what all app support tells us to do, and that is to uninstall and reinstall. Sadly, that just took the icon off my iPhone. If I want to use your app now, I have to search for it in the App Store and select open where I can use it. I’m a paid subscriber for a couple of years now, but if this app is no longer compatible, I don’t care to continue with it. Please help. Thank you. Falling stars from 5 to 1... I have 2 for the benefit of the doubt that you will get back to me with a fix..Your contact support area only advertises your product and gives you an option for the pay for subscription, which I already have. It did not get me to support.. which is annoying. ☹️👎🏼
Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
This is annoying
by brooklynconraf on 2020/03/07 00:56
I’ve had this app for 2 years now and I never subscribed to it because I was happy with just using what you got to use on the app for free. Well the other day I was on the app and Idk how it happened but I guess I accidentally hit the subscribe button and it didn’t even give me the option of “are you sure you wish to subscribe? Yes or no” or whatever and it just automatically subscribed and now I’m being charged $4.99 when I DO NOT WANT IT, and when I tried to go through the app to UNSUBSCRIBE, there’s no where on the app to unsubscribe. I’m highly annoyed with this app and I want it off my phone and my money back, and I don’t want to be subscribed to this app any longer.
Good app but needs to be fixed
by TiffanyN98 on 2021/02/01 02:05
I used to be able to use this app with no issue. However, recently when I’ve gone to use it and put a white border around my pictures and save it, it asks if I want to join premium or to watch an ad. Which is annoying but whatever. I hit watch ad cause I’m not gonna pay for a membership. When I hit watch ad it sits there and tries to load for what seems like 10 years and then it ends up just not loading. So now I have to add the boarder to my picture and then screenshot it cause it won’t load the stupid ad and save the picture, but now I have no way to add the boarder to videos if I want. I’ve tried updating the app and even trying this in a place where I have perfect service. I’m starting to consider downloading a different app if nothing changes soon.
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
Currently Disappointed
by BLKJRF on 2018/01/29 17:47
I have happily used InstaSize for several years, and have really appreciated being able to upload my full size photos to Instagram (vs having to edit them to a square). While I rarely used InstaSize filters, the free app option suited me just fine. However, starting a few weeks ago I can no longer upload my edited photos to Instagram - the photo is sent with all editing lost and the full size photo option gone. I’m hoping this is just a temporary glitch as I will be disappointed to look for a new app comparable to the previous version of InstaSize, and one that does not cost $5 each month.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
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.
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
Very decisive Ad method
by Obi55 on 2020/10/21 14:10
This app used to be good but it literally forces you to upgrade with very intrusive lengthy ads.. After watching 30 seconds plus ads and you tap close, it decisively sends you to AppStore. I pity those brands advertising on this platform on “click cost” I suppose the high ratings is from previous years users. **Responding to the developer: No stop lying, there’s no way to exit the ads after 5 seconds. It usually minimum 20-30 seconds, and 99% of time when you tap the “x” button that finally shows up after 30secs, it still takes you to AppStore.. so stop lying.”
Cool app BUT it could have been awesome
by PhilWil on 2018/12/25 15:48
This app is definitely for those who take pics or vids for Instagram. For those who do it for fun it's a cool addition to other apps. For those who are more people users, subscribing to the monthly is worth it ONLY if you want quick and have a higher level of color grading video files. BUT!!! It really needs more if you are going to subscribe. Instagram had long form photos and videos but it's actually pretty tough to edit that way in the app or have collages that are 4x5 or 3x5 long. Add that and it becomes worth it because now it takes advantage of more Instagram photo and video sizes. If I was the developer on this I would also think about adding something like what Swipable has, again taking advantage of what Instagram offers like multiple pics on one post (now capped at 10 currently). This app should have something for every feature Instagram allows to post. Heck maybe even scheduled posting. Do all of this and you will have more subscribers you know what to deal with. For now only three stars until the addition of long form or tall photos and videos are added to the app and to collages.
Deceitful; I used for 15 mins, canceled, but still got charged $50
by VandaMeraki on 2019/07/23 20:10
Hi guys- I downloaded the free trial period a couple days ago; within 15 mins knew I wasn’t in love in the app, so went through the steps to cancel the subscription (no, not just delete the app, but I went into iTunes to cancel the subscription); today I see a charge from Apple saying Instasize charged me almost $50. I contacted Apple support today; they said they wish they could refund my c/c but due to some reason which they cannot even explain to me (they just kept sending me a link to read a million fine print). They said if I contact Instasize, you will just refer me back to Apple. This is unacceptable. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume there is a major glitch in your system right now, but I absolutely want my money back! I used your app for not even 15 minutes and now you/Apple are locking me into a year-long commitment. I never even authorized the dang thing to charge me. If it’s not truly a free trial, then you shouldn’t advertise it as such. I never would have downloaded it in the first place if I had known this would waste so much time and energy. Please revolve this ASAP or I will just have to get my credit card to block your charges! Thank you.
Used to love it
by princess_briibrii (fmoig) on 2021/01/27 03:47
I loved this app when I first got it (which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 1) my only problem with it at this point is that every time I use the app it tries to get me to subscribe to the premium version and doesn’t give me the option to X out of the pop up. No matter what part of the screen I hit it tries to make me pay for a subscription which wouldn’t be too big of a deal except that twice now when trying to exit out of the app it’s instead decided to charge my card for a subscription that I dont want!! This leads to me having to email Apple and get a refund and it’s a long process that wastes everyone’s time and could be avoided if the app developers would stop trying to push the subscription on you.
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.
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.
Get full size pix for IG
by Mishka the ferret on 2018/09/27 19:45
****** Re-reviewed You used to get full size pix for IG. But lately it doesn’t put your full photos in like it used to. It’s now cropping my photos unlike it used to even when I Change the size of the photo. It’s very disappointing as this was a very large part is why I used this program and its for my modeling page! The next button has now been moved so I can use the program. But the fact is you’re supposed to be the program to not crop the IG photos and now you are that program you need to have design for all sizes of photos like you used to. You barely have had new backgrounds in years and it’s getting to be a very sad app. I’m now Looking for a new app just like this one only better now and that makes me sad this was a solid app for a long time. I had actually wanted to be an ambassador. And now you couldn’t pay me to do it!
Having issues
by 36467432456788876 on 2018/10/24 00:49
I do really like the app and I’ve been using it forever, but for some reason I can’t even save the videos or pictures to my phone gallery and it pops up the premium feature anytime I try. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not but I think it’s ridiculous I’ll have to pay to save my photos/videos when all I do is make it minimized so it fits better on Instagram and I don’t even use any filters. If this is a big or an error, I’d love some help on fixing it but if saving stuff to my phone is now a premium action I’m going to not use the app anymore. I really love this app so I hope it is just a big. I’ve updated it and still have issues with this.
Well.....
by MetalMomma90 on 2020/01/27 03:18
I just updated this app today and it still crashes big Need new backgrounds and would be great if it didn’t messed up all the time as well as if you have a account, it would save your stuff even when deleting the ap. time. I've had this app forever like maybe 2 years now and never had this many problems with the app. I love this app but man it crashes all the time it's really annoying. I even have to clear all of my recent history of the apps I've been on and restart my iPhone 6 Plus to get it to work a little bit better. I want to give more stars for the background settings it has but until that crash is nearly gone or completely gone, I won't give all 5 stars. Please fix this problem, I don't want to be forced to look into a different app for its awesome Instagram backgrounds 🙏🏼🙏🏼
a little frustrating, but still using it
by Sarah223377 on 2019/07/04 18:10
I really love this app and use it for almost all of my Instagram pictures but my only issue with it is all the paid features that seem to change all the time. Before the subscriptions were a thing and you had to pay to get individual premium filters in packs of 3. I had bought several of them but then subscriptions became a thing and suddenly those filters I paid for were removed and made so that I have to pay $5 a month to use them again? Selecting “restore previous purchase” also does nothing. I still use this app just for the free features but it’s a little frustrating that I basically threw away money on it...
Awesome!
by Bhreigha on 2019/05/24 05:35
I love this app and I’ve been using it for years. It always gets the job done whether it be resizing photos, cropping, or doing other edits! I can crop photos that fit perfectly onto my IG or FB story as well as posts. My photos always look really clean and well done thanks to this app! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because recently they’ve started showcasing more ads and requests for me to upgrade to their Pro option like crazy. After every photo I edit they ask me to upgrade and then show me an ad. Otherwise, like I said, this is a great editing and cropping app that I use religiously before sharing my photos to social media.
You guys really messed up collage
by S. Gallman on 2019/04/07 17:43
Can you guys please revert the collage feature back to how it was?! I absolutely hate how I can’t use this app like I used to. Now that the collage feature is in the main editing portion, it takes way longer for me to do what I need to do. In addition to that, when I try to resize the pictures in collage format, they are saving to my camera roll in completely botched ways! It’s as if the app is cropping 30% of the pics out. I have to find another app to use now. I had been enjoying using this app for years but you guys totally flopped. Can I please get a direct download of the older version from 3 weeks ago??
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.
AWSOME!!!!!!!!!
by so so so helpful on 2020/01/02 23:54
OMGosh , I just love this app it’s so so fun unlike some people I love to type stuff on the pictures and decorate them to .I also like how you get to choose a background for The picture however I don’t like how SOME of the backgrounds and tents you have to pay for. I do like how they give you just a couple that are free. I also like when you go to the typing to type stuff on the picture you can pic whatever color you would like none of them you have to pay for. I also like how you can have a account on there. The only reason I’m giving this app 5 stars is because it doesn’t make you pay for things right away you can exit out of it and just use the free stuff. Unlike other people I can’t buy stuff on apps I would get in trouble with my parents. Thanks again for reading!!! Have a merry late Christmas & ......... HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!! 🎊 IT’s.... 2020 Yayay
Was good
by LuciaftExo on 2020/02/27 00:34
I’ve been using this app for years and i love it! It has so many features and free filters, it’s great. But lately you’ve been changing the way the “adjust” section which made my pictures that were already edited get messed up, on the home page they look like what they’re supposed to look like and then when you go in, it changes to a whole different editing. Also, you changed the contrast and the exposure and they can no longer be negative??? I used those negative adjustments for all my pictures and now I can’t and I can’t find another editor to make them look how I want them to. Please fix that asap! I would hate to move editors because I really like this one.
Maddening Auto-Position “Feature”
by External Brain on 2020/02/21 20:08
I love this app and have used it for ages, primarily to make collages. At some point in a previous update a feature was added which “snaps” your photo into place when you’re trying to drag it into position within a collage. I have no idea what criteria is used to determine when the feature activates (blue horizontal and/or vertical positioning guides appear) nor to where the photo snaps, but it is never helpful in my case and constantly pulls the photo away from where I’d carefully dragged it. I’d LOVE to be able to deactivate the function but I’ve had no luck finding a toggle anywhere. This is otherwise a hugely useful multi-featured app but this one massively irritating quality has me searching for a replacement after many years.
Needs Improvement In Link To Google Drive
by Sane Zolt on 2018/09/11 01:45
I love this app. But since the past two days I have noticed that it does not work as fast and responsive as it used to google drive. See I upload my photos to Google Drive & then open Drive in my phone, and open the photos from the Drive app in Instasize but recently it has not been responding & does nothing when I command to open in Instasize. If anything the app has crashed 3/4 times. This has never happened before & I got really disappointed. Now, I have to download them from the Drive app to the phone. Open the photos in the Instasize app, fix the image size then save them again on the phone. Then share them on Instagram, which take a whole lot of time compared to my old method. If you’d fix the issue, my rating will go back to a 4/5 star again. Thanks.
Can't unsubscribe from free trial
by A Trop on 2018/12/13 23:01
I had already purchased the extra filters and the additional editing tools on this app last year as soon as they became available. A few months ago, I upgraded the app to the latest version and it asked me to subscribe for seven days free trial. I assumed that since I had already purchased the full version of the app with added filters and features that this upgrade would give me more features, naturally. I pressed subscribe and I found that I haven't actually gotten any additional features to what I had already had access to on this app. For months now, I I have been getting charged again for the features I already had for over a year. This app is double dipping $$ with loyal customers and it’s not fair. Please refund my money for additional charges. Thank you.
just got worse
by ALolliPOP13007 on 2021/01/11 08:35
in the past, i used to use the features of this app smoothly and without glitch or trouble. however, ever since the recent update, i’ve found it harder and harder to use Instasize, especially adding text and saving pictures. the text now suddenly has a type of magnetic placement which is quite bothersome when i want to get the text to go where i want it. the saving is even worse. i often find that after i’ve edited a picture, i press the save button and absolutely nothing happens even after multiple taps, so i have to discard my edit and redo the entire thing to make it work. it would be great if the app could go back to its previous version as that version worked much smoother.
Somewhat useful but predatory
by Ancient Californian Wisdom on 2019/07/10 18:20
I downloaded this app to resize one video clip. It charged me the full $50 year-length subscription with no notification. I found the downloading process in which I evidently naively agreed to this shady and unclear. Admittedly I do find the editing tools, especially resizing, useful and easy. After coming to terms with my own mistake and learning to distrust these things more and read the fine print better, I’ve used it a few times. In the middle of editing photos it has crashed several times and gives me an inescapable window asking me to sign up for “Premium Plus” membership. I don’t want “Premium Plus”, whatever it is, but because I couldn’t escape or collapse the pop-up ad, after several attempts to click somewhere on the screen to get out of it, I have evidently agreed to let them charge me extra money. Guys, if you have a good tool, you don’t have to extort your customers with shady practices. You already have $50 from me. I live in Mexico on $900 a month. You have successfully taken a healthy chunk of my disposable income, you don’t need any more, especially if it’s interfering with me being able to use the thing, so I can simply resize a photo.
STOLE MY MONEY
by eiblehssmada on 2019/05/03 04:25
I just found out that I have been paying 4.99 every month for an app that hasn’t even been installed on my phone for YEARS!! I probably lost well over $50 for something I had no clue about! I pay for Apple Music (which is also $4.99) on my phone and have seen a charge for that amount billed to iTunes in my bank account but am now realizing that I am paying for both every month, not just Apple Music. Be careful downloading apps that also have premium versions! That’s how I noticed this problem because I was charged $7.99 for a different app that I was not aware of either! I have never left any reviews or comments on anything before but I just found out that I have probably lost over fifty dollars for something I don’t have on my phone so I don’t not want this to happen to anyone else!

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

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

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

Should be a free app. Hard to cancel

by kategoodrich555555555 on 2021/03/31 22:30
This app was the best until they started shoving subscriptions down your throat to a point where you’re unable to click away every single time you open the app
Overcharged
by _Anthoonhy_ on 2021/03/31 08:13
I was to supposed to have a 3 days free trial and the charged me 29.99 for a whole year!
i couldn’t use the app unless i got the 3 day FREE trial!
by briana.neff on 2021/03/29 05:58
the app wouldn’t let me get into it unless i started a three day free trial, so i started the trial and the app charged me $32.16! i used to constantly use this app, but if customer support doesn’t refund me my money, they’ll be losing a very frequent user.
Faulty app
by summerleeannarnold on 2021/03/27 20:49
They charged me $5.99 for a monthly subscription I didn’t authorize and now the Contact Us Now button isn’t working. I’m trying to cancel that subscription so they can’t keep taking my money and they think messing up the app will stop me? Lol

by itsyourgirljo on 2021/03/26 08:21
I’ve had this app for years now just to add a background to my pictures and that was all. One day the app just stopped working and it won’t let me use it anymore without subscribing. I’ve uninstalled and installed it once again and the same thing is still happening. What could i possibly do?! I always loved using this app but it just gets so frustrating.
Meh
by mtothectothel on 2021/03/26 01:17
I used to love this app! They’ve gotten too fancy with their updates and their editing tools just don’t work great anymore. They also used to let you lay out your photos in a grid like your IG pages so you could map out the visualization of your posts. Now the grid is all weird and defeats the purpose I used to use this app for 👎🏼
Loved until they started adding logo to exports

Costo
by Phanie2929 on 2021/03/24 03:54
Me encantaba podía bajar mis filtros y podía comprar si quería otros (opcional) pero ahora la página que tanto me gustaba para editar ahora está cobrando hasta por guardarte la imagen... que tienes que pagar al año o al mes cierra cantidad. De lo contrario screnshot o no puedes guardar tu imagen
Subscription nightmare
by nbean11 on 2021/03/24 00:27
Apple says I have a subscription but I can access any of the features. When I click upgrade - it fails. When I click login- it fails. When I click “contact us” - it fails. When I try to reset my password - it fails. This is a scam.
HORRIBLE SCAM!
by Lol81 on 2021/03/23 23:52
I never signed up for a subscription with this App. All of a sudden, I’m being charged $4.99 for premium without notice, or my permission! Beware! It doesn’t even give you the option of unsubscribing. My section to unsubscribe has been grayed out, forcing me to contact the developer.

Scam
by Ktttttt13 on 2021/03/21 21:50
I’ve had this app for almost 5/6 years now. I used to use it all the time and it was a life saver but now you’re required to buy premium to use any feature of the app. I was charged 3 times for one month and I’m still dealing with the refund process. Very disappointing and I would never recommend this app.
functions lost

Not FREE
by BabykatecAkes on 2021/03/16 04:30
I have used this app for YEARS and have always loved it. I only ever used it to resize my photos to fit my lock screen and Instagram. I rarely used the backgrounds and never used the filters and I was okay with that. However, now you can’t even use the app without paying for premium. And I’m not going to pay for premium just to use the “free” features. Ridiculous.

As soon as I go to hit the save option, it brings up the App Store purchase screen, if my finger would’ve hit the home button I’d be screwed. I like Instasize, but now there’s too many pop ups that could lead me to accidentally buying something.
Tries to force you to buy “premium” version CONSTANTLY
by westredg on 2021/03/10 22:12
Every time I save a photo, before I get the “save to camera roll” option, it’s trying to push the membership on me, like dude I don’t need it, relax
I’m annoyed
by SavannieRose on 2021/03/10 21:25
I accidentally subscribed to a premium membership and the app doesn’t load anything, making me unable to cancel it. Please help.
Money Hungry
by Ayereeeesesds on 2021/03/10 20:55
I’ve used this awesome app for YEAAARS and now it’s forcing you to pay money to use it. It was so easy and had amazing features but like everything else it wants you to pay money to use it. Such a waste of an app
Keeps crashing ?

I some how started a subscription to this app completely by mistake and now I can not find out how to cancel it.
Unwanted continuing membership
by dee2497 on 2021/03/09 14:06
I’ve had this app close to 2 years now and it charges me a monthly fee. I’ve tried to contact the help center to cancel my membership but they told me it has to be done on my end... I would have done that but it forced a log out and will not log back into my account. The app will not send me any log in info or any help gaining access to my account. I would save your time and money and get a different app.
Good app sneaky membership add
by gracek15 on 2021/03/09 06:13
I like the app but I just found out that I was charged for the premium membership when I dont even have an account to set up. How do I cancel a membership when I don’t even have any account to log into. I want my $5 back.
Works sometimes
by MrsErinP on 2021/03/08 17:29
99% of the time my videos don’t load. Now I am paying for a subscription for a year that doesn’t work.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD! *reason below*
by Super1number on 2021/03/07 14:29
Impossible to get pass paid screen. It will keep trying to get you to do a “3 day free trial” in which they Bill you immediately. The “developer” will say you should be able to opt out; however, it is no exit options on the screen. They are aware of this but will not fix it because they need the money. Do not download this app & all of the high star ratings (anyone greater than 3) have either paid or used the app before this trash update. 0/10 would never recommend, go to a different app!
Fraud
by TraderNY on 2021/03/06 17:16
The app launches an Apple Pay purchase/subscription screen after saving a photo. One thing is to ask you to subscribe and a different one to hijack one of the two steps required for a purchase. This is attempted fraud
Love it!

Stopping working

The app opens and closes right up don’t understand why this is happening hopefully it will get fixed
Unable to use free version
by Meg.Oreo on 2021/03/03 20:47
This app frustrates me like none other. You can create one photo collage for free. But when you create your second collage they hit you with a screen that commands you to purchase a membership. You cannot exit out of this screen, and therefore you cannot save your second collage or make any others! This completely makes this free version useless! If only I could give the app zero stars.
Update
by B2daT on 2021/03/03 15:54
I don’t like how The new update when I used it has Instasize on the picture didn’t notice till I already posted it on Instagram looks tacky IMO
Would give zero stars if I could.
by raafman on 2021/03/03 06:17
This app tries to trick you into paying for a recurring subscription when you save a photo. It’s trash.
I use to love this app.....
by Britt Chey on 2021/03/03 01:38
This app use to be my absolute favorite when resizing and adding borders to my Instagram photos. Now there are only a hand full of free options. I had many downloaded before the app went to subscription. Why take them away? I think there should be more free options to see if the subscription is worth it. I wanted to use the film border, but I’m not going to pay $4.99 to use one filter. Let us test more out.
PREMIUM ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE
by JordynCT on 2021/03/01 23:55
It says “free photo editor” - when you download app it only gives you option to start a 3 day free trial and after that you must pay for premium.. Wasn’t always like this, I used to recommend this app, now I don’t.
Charges.
by kellydeiob on 2021/03/01 20:20
I Like How It Says 3 Day Free Trial But Is Trying To Charge Me Right Off Bat... Scams Aren’t Cool.. Bad Ratings.
Imposible to reset my password
by culeraaaaaa on 2021/03/01 04:08
I’ve been trying to log into my account and it continues to tell me my password is invalid. When I try to reset, the app continues to say an email has been sent but I’m not receiving anything. Frustrating.
Hate it
by kimbrewly on 2021/03/01 02:44
Doesn’t let me use it if I don’t pay for a subscription
Doesn’t even allow me to open the App!
by Patricia1113 on 2021/02/28 21:20
I used to love this app! But awhile back I updated the app and it just stopped working. It didn’t even allow me to open the app. I tried everything, but it still didn’t work. So I permanently deleted the app. Fast forward to a couple of months later. I still haven’t found an app that is as good as this one, so I decided to give it another opportunity. But I still have the same issue 😭😭 and this is a new phone too.
Basically unusable

The app doesn’t even open up whenever I click on it. It loads up the “Instasize” logo and then closes out. Sad cause I liked this app.
Bad and unsustainable biz model
by 保暖大师 on 2021/02/25 08:19
First I love this app and it’s mostly the only app I used to modify my pics. And that’s why it deserves a five star. Second, and because I love this app as many ppl who left comments, I know you have to make money to make investors happy. But 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. God sake please let anyone went to biz school give this team some suggestions. THIS IS SUICIDE FOR AN APP. You are making ppl delete this app they love. Or loved.
I can’t use the app

What happened? :(
by parichan28 on 2021/02/23 08:41
I used to use this app because for its amazing Text Styles feature for my Instagram stories. Here I am, trying to make a new story cover for my profile and now , the font styles are gone. What on earth happened? Is there no way to bring it back? :(
TERRIBLE
by jayorio on 2021/02/23 01:57
They want 25 dollars a year to edit a pic
Crashing like crazy
by Musclebear2013 on 2021/02/22 21:13
Ever since the last update the app crashes like crazy. Ive deleted it and reinstalled it but still major issues.
Deceptive
by xG2LoveATLx on 2021/02/22 14:05
Uses deceptive measures to steal your money. For example, while you’re downloading a photo you created in free version the fingerprint will pop up asking to subscribe in a way that causes you to hesitate. That’s just one of many. Stop stealing my money and give me refunds.
Ok
by ohmywhatawasteofmoney on 2021/02/22 12:58
Thanks for tricking us into paying for your useless subscription by putting it directly in the way of saving a photo! What a waste of $4.99!!
Easy to use
by JackBerzerker on 2021/02/22 12:34
Good easy to use app with most basic editing functions.
Shady App
by HughMenbing on 2021/02/22 02:56
This app definitely does what it says it does, however one constantly has to decline the app’s invasive attempts to bill you for their “premium” paid offering, which is wholly unnecessary if all you need this app for is platform specific cropping/resizing. Used it once and deleted immediately...
Poor
by moetayled on 2021/02/21 22:52
I keep trying to save my photos, but because I’m not a premium member I have to watch an advertisement before saving which is fine, but it never loads!! It’s like a trap to get you to pay for premium.
Product is finew.
by cownslur1 on 2021/02/21 15:42
... but there’s no way to stop your subscription. Website/support/App Store dont offer options to cancel. Only renewals.
Crash Crash Crash.
by JLJMW on 2021/02/21 15:35
I have carried a subscription for many years. This has been my favorite app up until about a year ago.. it constantly crashes. It use to only crash when I would do some beauty touch ups then tried to apply a filter. So for the past year I have had to do my touch ups then save. Make my adjustments.. then save. Then pick my filter. Today I can’t even get anything to save, or look at my previous edits without the app crashing. At this point it’s not worth the money. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max with enough power to handle quite a bit of computing. I can’t imagine having an older phone. Please fix this app so I don’t have to cancel my yearly subscription that is due to be up next month.
Premium Page ?
by Chelscoupons on 2021/02/21 14:32
How do I get past the premium add on the screen when I download the app? I have downloaded twice trying to edit pictures I do not use this app enough to buy premium and I need to edit photos. There is no “X” to exit off of the premium add .. I have tried swiping up and sideways to exit off the screen. I’ve tried pressing continue. It seems as though the only way to get off that add is to press continue to buy the app. I searched Google to see if the app was still free to use and it says it’s still free to use basic features. Why can’t I access them? How do I get off this premium add?!!?

Purchased restore
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/10/24 04:26
It is sad when companies promise something and don’t keep there promise. I purchased the no add function before they went to subscription as I loved the app for there ability to resize pictures. I do not use filters at all. Up to recently, I would still mark the app at 4 stars as I had no adds. Now that is impossible. Every time I resize a photo it gives me adds. Restore does no good. Not sure what else I can do but tell the world as they don’t want to fix the problem. I tried to contact them but got no help. Why should I pay for premium to get the one thing I purchased and the only thing I use. The no add function. They told me that if I sent copy of receipt they would fix the add problem. So much for promises. Even giving them the receipt does not work as they said they would not do this after I sent the receipt. They are not honoring there promise to me when I originally purchased no adds from them. In addition it still says you can purchase no adds but my purchase is not being honored. This makes no sense to me.
This is a rip-off
by Madi is lit on 2019/01/18 01:13
I installed instasize a very long time ago because I could edit videos as well as pictures using cool filters and editing tools. I do remember that I had problems with ads in the past and that I was working with a very limited editing and filter selection, which made me extremely sad. So I deleted the app. It resurfaced on my dash because some of my friends started downloading this app. It was advertised so well that I thought of getting this app again. I was offered over 80 filters and cool editing tools and I could not believe it. So I downloaded it and I instantly regret it. In order to use the app to its full creative extent, I have to pay unnecessary money. I have an even more limited amount of filters than when I first downloaded the app, and I can barely even get through editing a picture without so many ads popping up. Honestly, it’s like the app is infested with ads. I would have considered the continual use of it bad there been an upfront price I could pay instead of a subscription. This ain’t some high end product deserving of even considering a subscription. It’s best to just stick with VSCO because there at you least have a good amount of filters, there aren’t ads, and no subscription. They have options to purchase filters and the prices are manageable. This app has disappointed me a second time and I won’t let there be a third time. A waste of space on my phone.
Refuse to pay monthly for an editing app
by only here for the reviews on 2020/05/07 12:15
I had always used Instasize to edit all of my pictures, it was my all time favorite editing app. Mainly because I loved that I could use the app to adjust the size of any picture to fit my lock screen. I also only used the same few filters and features so the free version was perfect for me. Although the constant premium adds were a tad bit annoying because they popped up every time I tried to save my pictures, but they were bearable because the app used to be quick and easy to use. However, the app became increasingly more annoying, time consuming and harder to use because of all the premium adds. It got to the point to were I couldn’t save any photos because I “had” to upgrade to premium, and I refuse to pay a monthly prescription when I only use three of the features. I then came to the conclusion there MUST be a glitch with my favorite editing app so I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and boy I was wrong. Now I cannot even use the app without going premium, it offers a 3 day free trial and then it’s a monthly prescription. Since when did instasize become so money oriented that a free version, even if it was ad infested and offered very limited features, isn’t even offered? Very disappointed and will be looking for a new editor because I refuse to pay for three basic editing features.
love it, but ugh
by Maddiebaddie_cheerandtumblr on 2018/08/08 01:26
i’ve used instasize for YEARS now, before they ever had the subscription deal, and before you had to make an account for instasize. i used it so much that i purchased about 3-5 different filter packs about a year or two ago. but recently, the developers changed to a monthly subscription instead of buying certain packs. when they did that, i lost all the filters i bought. i would gladly get the subscription, but i already spent about $10+ on filters i used constantly that were just taken from me, and i’m also a teen who doesn’t have a job, so i can’t exactly always have the money for said subscription. i tried emailing the company about this, because it really irritates me that i spent money......on basically nothing now, but it wouldn’t go through, in a way that makes me think the email listed in the app description doesn’t work. i want to know if these filters can somehow be restored or something, because i even hit “restore purchases” and nothing happened. idk if it’s because i didn’t have an instasize account or what, but it’s really, really frustrating. ***edit: problem solved!!! amazing customer service, seriously it’s unreal, and it’s still the best app i’ve ever used for editing !!!
Not sure if they are trying to scam people or if it’s a glitch
by Annbanan122 on 2020/05/03 05:59
So I was already pretty upset that one of my favorite editing apps took away some features and started asking for money. Usually when I save a picture an add to buy premium will pop up and I’ll just exit out and save to camera roll, no problem. As of recently when I got to save my picture the add that pops up when I got to save my picture will be invisible, that or the save to camera roll button has been changed to PURCHASE premium. When tapping save to camera roll it will ask for my finger print to buy premium. On multiple occasions I have almost pressed the home button to exit out. Which would have then purchased premium without my consent. I’ve used the app so much that when I do a quick edit I just zoom through the steps to save my picture so I’ve come very close to accidentally buying premium multiple times, and honestly I can’t afford premium at all, nor would I ever want to pay for it. I really hope it’s just a bug, because it would be a pretty sketchy thing for them to do to get people to accidentally buy premium!
Awesome
by Freedomgirl44 on 2017/12/23 01:21
Honestly I love using this app! It gives me the option of using soo many things for free! I would however love if their were more backgrounds available... for example like a birthday background or a celebration background for those special pictures that you want to post about someone else's birthday or even yours! THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME BACKGROUND!! Keep up the good work! ***UPDATED MY APP SO NEEDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW*** I do love that the creators of this app took my advice on adding Birthday backgrounds that you can customize and new backgrounds for certain holidays. I’m disappointed that they took that and decided you can only add those certain filters if you pay for the app for every month or if you do the trial. I remember that you used to be able to download them and use them for the holidays and they would disappear after a certain time. Oh well. As much as I love this app because it’s so easy to use it looks like I might need to look into a new app for my pictures. It was good while it lasted. Thank you for considering my ideas though. It’s nice to know that their are people that listen to one persons feedback.
Was a great app
by thetashalee on 2018/10/09 01:50
Like other reviewers, I’ve been using this app for years to edit pictures. And now since the most recent update, I noticed one of my favorite (free) filters was gone. Then I realized nearly half of the free filters were removed! This was such a great free app to use, and I always recommended it to people. I tried the premium free trial before, and I even paid for it for a few months because I liked the extra features. But I decided that I didn’t need to be spending the extra money, and would continue to just use the free features because they were enough for me. But now it seems like InstaSize is only in it to get money out of people. Rather than providing a great free app for people to quickly edit pictures on the go (and choose to pay for the premium services/add-ons at their OWN convenience), it’s now a never-ending stream of ads trying to convince you to pay for their premium service, all while slowly taking away more “free” features, until you have no choice but to pay. 👎🏻
What free membership?
by Joreeses on 2019/07/02 14:29
I’ve been using this app since I have had an instagram to edit my photos, make them square without cropping, and make collages. I loved this app for these features. I have never bought any of the filter packs or paid for a premium membership since I’m not an instagram model or have any reason to put too much effort into editing pictures. However, this app still advertises the presence of a free membership, but does not seem to allow even basic use without premium membership. I have only been trying to use this app to place photos on a square, white background so I could post them without cropping. Whenever I try to download the image, a pop up comes up advertising the premium membership, but there is no way to skip, continue, or otherwise leave this add without closing out of the app. My question is: why advertise a free, basic membership but not allow users to actually use basic functionality? I have been using and have loved this app for years, but it looks like I’ll have to find a different one.
Subscription button scam
by Lacey Kingry on 2019/04/22 13:56
I typically only use this app to resize my photos for IG. None of the fancy filters or borders just a plain white background so there’s zero need for me to purchase the subscription. However, I uninstalled the app today because they make the subscription button THE BIGGEST BUTTON on the page when you first open the app. When I accidentally clicked it today and then tried to just hit my home button to get out of the app my fingerprint and payment was approved and BOOM! I had a subscription without even opting for one 🙃 if it wasn’t for the 7 day trial period my card would’ve been charged before I could’ve cancelled the subscription. Seems to me with it being the biggest of the two buttons on the screen that they’re banking on people accidentally hitting it and signing up for a subscription that they didn’t even care for. I understand the need to advertise for it to make a profit but don’t be skeezy about it. If I could report this app I would and I’ll be using a different app for my resizing needs from now on.
Used to be great
by adria1130 on 2020/10/10 23:03
I used to love this app and it did exactly what I needed, just sized down my photos, I never use the filters or text or any of the other stuff available but it was cool that it was offered and then out of no where these ads just kept playing before and after every picture edit, and I’m not talking about 5 second ads these go from 30 seconds to a minute and a half every time, it takes longer to get through the ad then it doesn’t for me to make my picture the size I want. And I get it you want people to pay for your app but the price is not worth what you actually get, especially if you are only using it for the sizing and nothing else, personally I suggest stop being greedy and those who need it will pay for it or honestly make it a one time purchase of $4.99 because what you actually offer isn’t worth a monthly subscription, not when we can just go find another app to do the same thing that won’t smother us in pointless ads that don’t “force” us to buy just make us uninstall
HATE THIS.
by Luvdisgameeeee!101 on 2019/04/25 22:30
Let me start off by saying I’ve used Instasize for at least the last 6-7 years maybe even more. When I discovered it I fell in LOVE. I was able to edit photos, make collages, easy handling and it was completely wonderful. I NEVER EVER HAD A COMPLAINT. That is until NOW. The update is completely and utterly trash!!!!! DO NOT DO IT. I used to be able to make collages and now for some awesome reason the photos before I hit to save magically change and all are distorted. Also I hate that I lost trim and have to make it myself. Whoever thought of this genius idea was a flipping IDIOT. I now will be spending money on other apps because this one seems to have lost the flipping bar. I’ve told hundreds of people to use this app, and now I’ll make sure to tell everyone not to. It’s BS. I’ve lost a lot of my filters, I can’t make collages, and I lost the design that brought me to insta. HORRIBLE. Horrible. HORRRIBLE. Y’all see what happened to Snapchat when they changed, it’s now back to normal. Hopefully whatever idiot you have building this crap app fixes it. If not by instasize wont wanna see ya EVER AGAIN.
Can’t get in the app??
by _iibriannaii_ on 2019/04/15 03:42
Usually I can get in this app just fine, I don’t buy premium nor do I buy anything else within the app. Recently today, the app crashed the moment I clicked on it. I could not log in and I could not even open the app for more than 3 seconds before it crashed.. That upsets me. I tried reinstalling the app, and though now I can get into the app, when I press “Get Started” I can not get off the screen about buying premium.. nothing works. First time I got the app it was completely fine, I use Instasize for my instagram theme. I’ve tried resetting my phone, leaving the app alone for awhile, shutting my own off and turning it back on, checking for updates (though I have auto-update on) and yet, nothing is working. It’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if this is happening for other users or if it’s just me..
User Since Day 1 & Current user still! 5/5
by Guldenschuh INC. on 2019/06/02 18:16
Surprised I have gone this long without reviewing this app, especially as a free user. I have downloaded & used Instasize since the beginning of the app being available. I use the free version currently and paid in the past. I believe what keeps me coming back to this app (Instasize) is the simplicity and user friendliness. 5 stars all day. As a free user I’m not going to do anything except mention “advertising ads” before saving images to my phone, it’s a given.. Paid = no ads. The most useful tools I use within the app are resize feature & exposure. I use adobe on desktop and find myself sending images to my phone to resize in this app as it’s just so straightforward easy!
Weirdly complicated
by shopgrrl on 2019/06/06 15:06
I recently downloaded the app and I love the general visual effects of the app and how it makes my pictures look. I see that there’s a premium version but for now, I’m looking for user-friendliness. I have a few issues: 1. Even basic border creation and photo saving takes me to the premium sign up page without any option to decline or move forward. My workaround is to close the app and reopen it to then access/save the pic I’ve been editing. At least it saves edits, I guess? 2. I tried adding text to a photo and though it wasn’t labeled as a premium feature, every time I try to save this photo the text is exported into a different font. 3. I decided to opt-in to the free 7 day trial to see if it would be a better user experience but when I had to confirm with iTunes, it was labeled as a 3 day trial that started in 3 days. I declined and if I need a border I’ll either find another app or just keep using my two step method.
Why!?
by Zombiejess24 on 2019/03/24 08:55
I loved this app even though you started putting out backgrounds that only people that paid could access. Now you completely took away all of the backgrounds and we have the choice of solid color or gradient combinations. My favorite was the cosmic and glitter backgrounds. Also, you messed with the collage option and I was using the six photo collage with three photos on top and three on the bottom to feature my tattoos so I could put them in the featured photos on my Facebook or even using the two photos side by side to show first done and after healed and now it doesn’t work out right. Please change the app back. It would also be nice if it was changed back to the old way and you could upgrade but only pay a one time fee. I’m not paying almost $6 a week when I’m not a big social media photographer but just an average person posting my life for friends and likeminded individuals to interact with me. I’m about to just delete this app. So disapppinted.
The worst app for video.
by AlexSop on 2018/12/20 22:34
I have only had this app for three days, and it’s giving me so much trouble. I was working for apps that are usable for video for IG, when the App Store showed me this app. It looked cute and had a few days free so I thought I’d try it out. It charged me the 5 dollars straight out the gate but didn’t find that out until it hit my account the next day. As for video. When I try to crop my video, it ignores that. Where ever I place my video, it wants to do the opposite. So if I want it in the middle I have to put it to the far right and hope somehow it lands where I want. But then, I might get a black bar somewhere or some weird green light on the bottom. If I save it and see that none of my progress has been made I try to go back and adjust it, the text is gone! I have to redo the text which already doesn’t seem to understand that fingers are adjusting it. The audio of the clip playing back at me is a horror track. It sounds like it’s been distorted by some demon ready to claim my soul. I have to have like 15 times before it’s FINALLY where I need it to be. Just in the middle, that’s all. Look I never complain, or write reviews about things, but this app really just gave me hell. The videos are shot from my phone, I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone to cause memory or space issues. I would just like my money refunded, and to warn others who might want to use this for their own videos.
AWESOME APP!
by Abigail Villena on 2017/11/10 18:03
I have used several apps for editing and or making collages or editing videos but this is the best one thus far. It was introduced to me by my best friend who is a Design Director for Tiger text. She also recommended I try to become an Ambassador as well which I did and got accepted into the program. I love how the app has so many options yet so organized and easy to navigate through. As a Registered Nurse I am obligated to chart every shift and use a phone app called Mobile Heart beat which are pretty out of date compared to my millenial standard of how technology works. When I’m outside of work and come across apps that are easy to navigate through and can do multiple things I’m all for it. Thank you InstaSize!
Need app support please.
by Crashbashenginehash on 2021/01/01 17:54
This app was working great. Not so much now on my iPhone 12. After I apply a filter sometimes it will let me save my work, other times it just shuts the app down without saving changes. I do what all app support tells us to do, and that is to uninstall and reinstall. Sadly, that just took the icon off my iPhone. If I want to use your app now, I have to search for it in the App Store and select open where I can use it. I’m a paid subscriber for a couple of years now, but if this app is no longer compatible, I don’t care to continue with it. Please help. Thank you. Falling stars from 5 to 1... I have 2 for the benefit of the doubt that you will get back to me with a fix..Your contact support area only advertises your product and gives you an option for the pay for subscription, which I already have. It did not get me to support.. which is annoying. ☹️👎🏼
Disappointed
by KQueen27896 on 2020/11/26 02:36
I went to look at the app and see if I would like it and as soon as I placed my finger on the home button to reply to a text it takes my money and says thanks for signing up for your subscription. I was not trying to buy this I was simply looking at the features and what they had to offer. I would really appreciated if you didn’t try to be sneaky and have the open screen and the payment on the same page just to quickly take someone’s money. There should be a whole prompt and questions that we go through in order to buy a subscription not a quick one too , especially if the person is an apple paying customer you already know the home button automatically scans your fingerprint and charges . Smh I feel used as a consumer especially since I’m not using this app or into the idea of using it since I was just looking to see what features you all had. Smh I would like a refund!
This is annoying
by brooklynconraf on 2020/03/07 00:56
I’ve had this app for 2 years now and I never subscribed to it because I was happy with just using what you got to use on the app for free. Well the other day I was on the app and Idk how it happened but I guess I accidentally hit the subscribe button and it didn’t even give me the option of “are you sure you wish to subscribe? Yes or no” or whatever and it just automatically subscribed and now I’m being charged $4.99 when I DO NOT WANT IT, and when I tried to go through the app to UNSUBSCRIBE, there’s no where on the app to unsubscribe. I’m highly annoyed with this app and I want it off my phone and my money back, and I don’t want to be subscribed to this app any longer.
Good app but needs to be fixed
by TiffanyN98 on 2021/02/01 02:05
I used to be able to use this app with no issue. However, recently when I’ve gone to use it and put a white border around my pictures and save it, it asks if I want to join premium or to watch an ad. Which is annoying but whatever. I hit watch ad cause I’m not gonna pay for a membership. When I hit watch ad it sits there and tries to load for what seems like 10 years and then it ends up just not loading. So now I have to add the boarder to my picture and then screenshot it cause it won’t load the stupid ad and save the picture, but now I have no way to add the boarder to videos if I want. I’ve tried updating the app and even trying this in a place where I have perfect service. I’m starting to consider downloading a different app if nothing changes soon.
Love lost
by SmolKhaleesi on 2020/10/07 12:05
I’ve had this app probably since it came out. Back when there were tons of filters and they were all free. Over the years, this app has just gone downhill. You only get a handful of free filters and the rest you have to pay for. They took away the free ones I had loaded way back and made them for purchase only. And now I hate using this app because there are so many annoying ads ALL THE TIME. Open an image? Ad. Try to save a photo? Ad. Tired of sitting here watching 30 second ads three times before getting to actually do anything. I spend more time watching these ads than I do editing my photos. I just want to size for Instagram but it takes longer to get a photo open in the app and saved than it used to. Really frustrating when I have over 10 images to post on social for my job. Looking for a new app now.
Currently Disappointed
by BLKJRF on 2018/01/29 17:47
I have happily used InstaSize for several years, and have really appreciated being able to upload my full size photos to Instagram (vs having to edit them to a square). While I rarely used InstaSize filters, the free app option suited me just fine. However, starting a few weeks ago I can no longer upload my edited photos to Instagram - the photo is sent with all editing lost and the full size photo option gone. I’m hoping this is just a temporary glitch as I will be disappointed to look for a new app comparable to the previous version of InstaSize, and one that does not cost $5 each month.
Good app, have a recommendation
by 8348971205 on 2018/04/14 19:22
This is a great app! Very useful, I love all of its neat functions, very clean looking and intuitive. I do have one qualm with it, and that is you can only make collages with up to six photos. I would recommend raising that to at least nine. Many times I’ve wanted to create a 3x3 collage but had to look for other sources to do so. But what’s handy about this app is that when you create collages, there’s an option where it DOESN’T crop your photos, which is amazing! You can’t find another app like it. So my only suggestion is increasing the number of photos with which you’re allowed to make collages. **edit: another handy feature would be allowing users to save more than one photo to the camera roll at a time
InstaHeadache!
by OttoVR on 2019/01/07 01:46
I guess I was supposed to learn how to use this app through osmosis, so I’ll try again tonight when I go to sleep with my iPad under my pillow. Seriously, first try the music was adversely affected so I used a different version of the video only to see I now have four images which at times start playing the video without seeing it, totally out of sync with each other. It took a long time for one version to be saved and I have no idea where it is or which one is playing as I can’t get rid of the four icons/images of the video that are mostly all I get to see! I think resizing it to square is the easy part, but how do you select the 60 seconds to edit it down to for Instagram? Maybe if I can figure this out it might be useful, but it doesn’t seem too intuitive to figure out on one’s own. I don’ think I want to pay $4.99 a month for this the way it’s exposed itself to me!...OvR
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.
really awesome editing features! absolutely terrible contact ability.
by Tewi-tan on 2020/01/21 10:36
so, i wanted to try to find an app for my phone to edit borders onto photos without having to transfer them to my computer. tried this app, fell in love with the premium borders, figured i could do a free trial. i guess i should have known i would be instantly charged, but they didn’t allow me to select the monthly $5 plan trial, only the $13 yearly plan — until after i made the $13 purchase. i admittedly don’t know if this is all that common or not, so i could be totally naive, but that seems very misleading. $13 isn’t a lot, but from a $177 paycheck it’s SCARY, so i tried to find some kind of customer support... the webpage is a 404, & the app’s “contact us” link is an empty link that doesn’t do anything when you tap on it. so, i’m stumped & bummed by the lack of ability to communicate, & that alone really ruins the experience for me, personally.
Kinda good
by TattorTott on 2018/03/26 03:53
So I first got instasize it was cool it let me tan skins and whiten teeth and set flowery backgrounds and stuff like that. Then I made my first one. Then I was making my second one and when I was done it said I had to go on one of the trial things where you have to pay money. And nobody wants to pay money to put a flower background on and post it on Instagram! So it’s nice that you can do all that whitening and tanning and setting background stuff.... but it only lets you do one picture. So I could just go on Pic Collage and put a background and put a filter on the picture. So I’m sure you can get a better deal on a different app. Sorry instasize but I just don’t really like the app. If you could just let us have like 8 pictures to edit before we have to pay that would be nice! I do think it’s cool at the start but come on instasize you can do better than this!!! - dissatisfied used to be instasize user
Very decisive Ad method
by Obi55 on 2020/10/21 14:10
This app used to be good but it literally forces you to upgrade with very intrusive lengthy ads.. After watching 30 seconds plus ads and you tap close, it decisively sends you to AppStore. I pity those brands advertising on this platform on “click cost” I suppose the high ratings is from previous years users. **Responding to the developer: No stop lying, there’s no way to exit the ads after 5 seconds. It usually minimum 20-30 seconds, and 99% of time when you tap the “x” button that finally shows up after 30secs, it still takes you to AppStore.. so stop lying.”
Cool app BUT it could have been awesome
by PhilWil on 2018/12/25 15:48
This app is definitely for those who take pics or vids for Instagram. For those who do it for fun it's a cool addition to other apps. For those who are more people users, subscribing to the monthly is worth it ONLY if you want quick and have a higher level of color grading video files. BUT!!! It really needs more if you are going to subscribe. Instagram had long form photos and videos but it's actually pretty tough to edit that way in the app or have collages that are 4x5 or 3x5 long. Add that and it becomes worth it because now it takes advantage of more Instagram photo and video sizes. If I was the developer on this I would also think about adding something like what Swipable has, again taking advantage of what Instagram offers like multiple pics on one post (now capped at 10 currently). This app should have something for every feature Instagram allows to post. Heck maybe even scheduled posting. Do all of this and you will have more subscribers you know what to deal with. For now only three stars until the addition of long form or tall photos and videos are added to the app and to collages.
Deceitful; I used for 15 mins, canceled, but still got charged $50
by VandaMeraki on 2019/07/23 20:10
Hi guys- I downloaded the free trial period a couple days ago; within 15 mins knew I wasn’t in love in the app, so went through the steps to cancel the subscription (no, not just delete the app, but I went into iTunes to cancel the subscription); today I see a charge from Apple saying Instasize charged me almost $50. I contacted Apple support today; they said they wish they could refund my c/c but due to some reason which they cannot even explain to me (they just kept sending me a link to read a million fine print). They said if I contact Instasize, you will just refer me back to Apple. This is unacceptable. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume there is a major glitch in your system right now, but I absolutely want my money back! I used your app for not even 15 minutes and now you/Apple are locking me into a year-long commitment. I never even authorized the dang thing to charge me. If it’s not truly a free trial, then you shouldn’t advertise it as such. I never would have downloaded it in the first place if I had known this would waste so much time and energy. Please revolve this ASAP or I will just have to get my credit card to block your charges! Thank you.
Used to love it
by princess_briibrii (fmoig) on 2021/01/27 03:47
I loved this app when I first got it (which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 1) my only problem with it at this point is that every time I use the app it tries to get me to subscribe to the premium version and doesn’t give me the option to X out of the pop up. No matter what part of the screen I hit it tries to make me pay for a subscription which wouldn’t be too big of a deal except that twice now when trying to exit out of the app it’s instead decided to charge my card for a subscription that I dont want!! This leads to me having to email Apple and get a refund and it’s a long process that wastes everyone’s time and could be avoided if the app developers would stop trying to push the subscription on you.
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.
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.
Get full size pix for IG
by Mishka the ferret on 2018/09/27 19:45
****** Re-reviewed You used to get full size pix for IG. But lately it doesn’t put your full photos in like it used to. It’s now cropping my photos unlike it used to even when I Change the size of the photo. It’s very disappointing as this was a very large part is why I used this program and its for my modeling page! The next button has now been moved so I can use the program. But the fact is you’re supposed to be the program to not crop the IG photos and now you are that program you need to have design for all sizes of photos like you used to. You barely have had new backgrounds in years and it’s getting to be a very sad app. I’m now Looking for a new app just like this one only better now and that makes me sad this was a solid app for a long time. I had actually wanted to be an ambassador. And now you couldn’t pay me to do it!
Having issues
by 36467432456788876 on 2018/10/24 00:49
I do really like the app and I’ve been using it forever, but for some reason I can’t even save the videos or pictures to my phone gallery and it pops up the premium feature anytime I try. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not but I think it’s ridiculous I’ll have to pay to save my photos/videos when all I do is make it minimized so it fits better on Instagram and I don’t even use any filters. If this is a big or an error, I’d love some help on fixing it but if saving stuff to my phone is now a premium action I’m going to not use the app anymore. I really love this app so I hope it is just a big. I’ve updated it and still have issues with this.
Well.....
by MetalMomma90 on 2020/01/27 03:18
I just updated this app today and it still crashes big Need new backgrounds and would be great if it didn’t messed up all the time as well as if you have a account, it would save your stuff even when deleting the ap. time. I've had this app forever like maybe 2 years now and never had this many problems with the app. I love this app but man it crashes all the time it's really annoying. I even have to clear all of my recent history of the apps I've been on and restart my iPhone 6 Plus to get it to work a little bit better. I want to give more stars for the background settings it has but until that crash is nearly gone or completely gone, I won't give all 5 stars. Please fix this problem, I don't want to be forced to look into a different app for its awesome Instagram backgrounds 🙏🏼🙏🏼
a little frustrating, but still using it
by Sarah223377 on 2019/07/04 18:10
I really love this app and use it for almost all of my Instagram pictures but my only issue with it is all the paid features that seem to change all the time. Before the subscriptions were a thing and you had to pay to get individual premium filters in packs of 3. I had bought several of them but then subscriptions became a thing and suddenly those filters I paid for were removed and made so that I have to pay $5 a month to use them again? Selecting “restore previous purchase” also does nothing. I still use this app just for the free features but it’s a little frustrating that I basically threw away money on it...
Awesome!
by Bhreigha on 2019/05/24 05:35
I love this app and I’ve been using it for years. It always gets the job done whether it be resizing photos, cropping, or doing other edits! I can crop photos that fit perfectly onto my IG or FB story as well as posts. My photos always look really clean and well done thanks to this app! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because recently they’ve started showcasing more ads and requests for me to upgrade to their Pro option like crazy. After every photo I edit they ask me to upgrade and then show me an ad. Otherwise, like I said, this is a great editing and cropping app that I use religiously before sharing my photos to social media.
You guys really messed up collage
by S. Gallman on 2019/04/07 17:43
Can you guys please revert the collage feature back to how it was?! I absolutely hate how I can’t use this app like I used to. Now that the collage feature is in the main editing portion, it takes way longer for me to do what I need to do. In addition to that, when I try to resize the pictures in collage format, they are saving to my camera roll in completely botched ways! It’s as if the app is cropping 30% of the pics out. I have to find another app to use now. I had been enjoying using this app for years but you guys totally flopped. Can I please get a direct download of the older version from 3 weeks ago??
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.
AWSOME!!!!!!!!!
by so so so helpful on 2020/01/02 23:54
OMGosh , I just love this app it’s so so fun unlike some people I love to type stuff on the pictures and decorate them to .I also like how you get to choose a background for The picture however I don’t like how SOME of the backgrounds and tents you have to pay for. I do like how they give you just a couple that are free. I also like when you go to the typing to type stuff on the picture you can pic whatever color you would like none of them you have to pay for. I also like how you can have a account on there. The only reason I’m giving this app 5 stars is because it doesn’t make you pay for things right away you can exit out of it and just use the free stuff. Unlike other people I can’t buy stuff on apps I would get in trouble with my parents. Thanks again for reading!!! Have a merry late Christmas & ......... HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!! 🎊 IT’s.... 2020 Yayay
Was good
by LuciaftExo on 2020/02/27 00:34
I’ve been using this app for years and i love it! It has so many features and free filters, it’s great. But lately you’ve been changing the way the “adjust” section which made my pictures that were already edited get messed up, on the home page they look like what they’re supposed to look like and then when you go in, it changes to a whole different editing. Also, you changed the contrast and the exposure and they can no longer be negative??? I used those negative adjustments for all my pictures and now I can’t and I can’t find another editor to make them look how I want them to. Please fix that asap! I would hate to move editors because I really like this one.
Maddening Auto-Position “Feature”
by External Brain on 2020/02/21 20:08
I love this app and have used it for ages, primarily to make collages. At some point in a previous update a feature was added which “snaps” your photo into place when you’re trying to drag it into position within a collage. I have no idea what criteria is used to determine when the feature activates (blue horizontal and/or vertical positioning guides appear) nor to where the photo snaps, but it is never helpful in my case and constantly pulls the photo away from where I’d carefully dragged it. I’d LOVE to be able to deactivate the function but I’ve had no luck finding a toggle anywhere. This is otherwise a hugely useful multi-featured app but this one massively irritating quality has me searching for a replacement after many years.
Needs Improvement In Link To Google Drive
by Sane Zolt on 2018/09/11 01:45
I love this app. But since the past two days I have noticed that it does not work as fast and responsive as it used to google drive. See I upload my photos to Google Drive & then open Drive in my phone, and open the photos from the Drive app in Instasize but recently it has not been responding & does nothing when I command to open in Instasize. If anything the app has crashed 3/4 times. This has never happened before & I got really disappointed. Now, I have to download them from the Drive app to the phone. Open the photos in the Instasize app, fix the image size then save them again on the phone. Then share them on Instagram, which take a whole lot of time compared to my old method. If you’d fix the issue, my rating will go back to a 4/5 star again. Thanks.
Can't unsubscribe from free trial
by A Trop on 2018/12/13 23:01
I had already purchased the extra filters and the additional editing tools on this app last year as soon as they became available. A few months ago, I upgraded the app to the latest version and it asked me to subscribe for seven days free trial. I assumed that since I had already purchased the full version of the app with added filters and features that this upgrade would give me more features, naturally. I pressed subscribe and I found that I haven't actually gotten any additional features to what I had already had access to on this app. For months now, I I have been getting charged again for the features I already had for over a year. This app is double dipping $$ with loyal customers and it’s not fair. Please refund my money for additional charges. Thank you.
just got worse
by ALolliPOP13007 on 2021/01/11 08:35
in the past, i used to use the features of this app smoothly and without glitch or trouble. however, ever since the recent update, i’ve found it harder and harder to use Instasize, especially adding text and saving pictures. the text now suddenly has a type of magnetic placement which is quite bothersome when i want to get the text to go where i want it. the saving is even worse. i often find that after i’ve edited a picture, i press the save button and absolutely nothing happens even after multiple taps, so i have to discard my edit and redo the entire thing to make it work. it would be great if the app could go back to its previous version as that version worked much smoother.
Somewhat useful but predatory
by Ancient Californian Wisdom on 2019/07/10 18:20
I downloaded this app to resize one video clip. It charged me the full $50 year-length subscription with no notification. I found the downloading process in which I evidently naively agreed to this shady and unclear. Admittedly I do find the editing tools, especially resizing, useful and easy. After coming to terms with my own mistake and learning to distrust these things more and read the fine print better, I’ve used it a few times. In the middle of editing photos it has crashed several times and gives me an inescapable window asking me to sign up for “Premium Plus” membership. I don’t want “Premium Plus”, whatever it is, but because I couldn’t escape or collapse the pop-up ad, after several attempts to click somewhere on the screen to get out of it, I have evidently agreed to let them charge me extra money. Guys, if you have a good tool, you don’t have to extort your customers with shady practices. You already have $50 from me. I live in Mexico on $900 a month. You have successfully taken a healthy chunk of my disposable income, you don’t need any more, especially if it’s interfering with me being able to use the thing, so I can simply resize a photo.
STOLE MY MONEY
by eiblehssmada on 2019/05/03 04:25
I just found out that I have been paying 4.99 every month for an app that hasn’t even been installed on my phone for YEARS!! I probably lost well over $50 for something I had no clue about! I pay for Apple Music (which is also $4.99) on my phone and have seen a charge for that amount billed to iTunes in my bank account but am now realizing that I am paying for both every month, not just Apple Music. Be careful downloading apps that also have premium versions! That’s how I noticed this problem because I was charged $7.99 for a different app that I was not aware of either! I have never left any reviews or comments on anything before but I just found out that I have probably lost over fifty dollars for something I don’t have on my phone so I don’t not want this to happen to anyone else!
