Disappointed In Vertical View Only
by jcs012345 on 2020/10/22 20:34
On iPad Pro, App displays in vertical view only. App should switch to both horizontal and vertical view. Deleted app from iPad and will no longer consider it for In-App purchase.
Amazing!
by Krew_freak on 2020/10/20 16:49
My most favorite app in my phone. Yes there’s some bugs/glitches but overall it’s an easy and fun app to use. I know my way around it very well.
Easy & Fun
by Jojo1717 on 2020/10/17 23:34
This app is so easy and fun to use!! Love all the options, and I use it constantly for my social media. I do wish it gave the option to create the amount of squares you want, but I still love it!
The updates on the new version...
by Ddentz on 2020/10/17 21:21
Well, the new version is not nearly as good as the old. Shadows on text don’t exist, layers disappear. Ad after ad after ad on the free version. I assume there are no ads on the paid but I like to try before I buy but honestly nothing works as it should just yet.
Issues with Text Box
by Actuary44 on 2020/09/23 22:51
I am having a very difficult time trying to add a text box to a collage. I would add one text box and be able to change the color of the text just fine, but when I add a second box, I am unable to change the font color or font style. Also when I finish editing a picture and save it to my phone, the result looks different from what I see as my final product. Text boxes not showing up or randomly placed on the picture not anywhere near where I wanted it. Long story short, there are a lot of bugs with this, and if someone can respond to this and fix the problem that would be appreciated. I paid for this app and it would be nice if it worked properly.

Don’t Purchase
by nicknamesr on 2020/09/19 08:21
I purchased the subscription to unlock all the features and everything was going well, until a few months ago when l was unable to access most of the things. I’ve contacted support for them to give the run around and l still haven’t gotten this issue resolved, so if you’re thinking about purchasing this app keep your money.
Not Great So Far, First Timer Here
by colbyjones on 2020/09/13 02:45
I just downloaded this to spice up my instagram photos. After my second text box, the next few I tried kept jumping into the middle of nowhere (not in the picture frame) and I couldn’t move them. I paid for the premium version thinking that you could only have so many text boxes on one photo and that may have been why it was glitching. I had to re-do this photo twice because the app unexpectedly closed down. I’m hoping this turns around or I will be reaching out for a refund.
No Text Shadowing??
by lexluvskevinjonas on 2020/09/08 05:23
This used to be my favorite app app to edit text onto photos. One random update and now all of a sudden the “shadow” on text feature doesn’t work which makes such a huge difference! Super bummed. I keep hoping it will get fixed but I see tons of users are having the same issue.

by BAR112 on 2020/08/23 12:44
Just now opened the app and I get “confirm your age to continue”—what’s that about? I’m a senior citizen! Is this some sort of social-sharing app? If so, forget it! Also, being in portrait mode, it will be useless to me on my iPad Pro with attached keyboard. Don’t think I’ll be using it...
What? You now require my birthday to use the app?
by Jm0123xab on 2020/08/22 11:12
I’ve used this app (and purchased add-ones) for a few features (like the fonts) to finish images edited in more capable photo editors. After this latest update I am prompted to enter my full birth date before I can proceed. This is ridiculous and isn’t going to happen. Unfortunate overreach on your part folks...
App only works good on android
by peterd40 on 2020/08/15 13:37
Had this app working great on my Android. When I switched over to iPhone paid the fee it started cutting out my words
I like it but they need to fix it
by Jessike H on 2020/08/14 17:29
I’ve been using this app for a while now and every time it gets updated it seems like it gets more and more bugs. Every time I click to save all my changes things get erased and the text that I put on is not there is gone. Needs work I can’t even use it anymore.
Used to Love it
by GR8 D on 2020/08/14 02:55
I loved this app when I first got it, used it all the time. Now I literally can’t use it. I’ll try to save something I’ve made and half of it will be missing or the text is in a completely different location. I’m honestly sad about it .
Very Glitchy
by oldlady100 on 2020/08/13 19:16
Choose a different photo editor. This app is glitchy and it takes several tries to save edits and when you finally do sabe them the margins are not those you selected.
Lame mandatory age limit
by Rjc1224 on 2020/08/11 16:12
I’ve had this app for a couple years now and I opened up for the first time in a while. It requested that I enter in my age, (ok but really annoying), I entered in some random date (same year) and it told me I was not old enough. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m now locked out and not even going to bother to fix this, there are so many other apps that do the same thing. To clarify- I’m almost 3x the minimum age requirement for the app.

by Laceyyloulou on 2020/08/04 20:57
I got this app so I could add numbers to pictures of my newborn as she gets older, but sadly every time I save a picture to my gallery the stickers/text I’ve edited in is in a different spot AND is not the same size. I’ve paid for the full version, so if this issue doesn’t resolve itself I will be reaching out for a refund.

Not Liking It

I barely used it and all ready to many Commercials
It’s gone downhill
by Sidlova.18 on 2020/07/23 13:20
I’ve had this app since like 2014 or something. With every new phone I downloaded it again and again. But recently, it’s just stopped working. I edit my photo and go to save it and an ad pops up, I exit out of the ad, then it goes to a black screen and I have to close the app. I’ve tried 5-6 times and it’s still doing it. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it twice and it’s STILL doing it. This app used to be my go-to but now I’m trying to find a replacement but none are as good as this app USED to be. I miss the old app I have no idea what happened. It’s just so bad.
Pay attention to the ratings
by Hodwooker on 2020/07/21 10:04
I should have read the reviews. I paid for the pro version and still have ads and watermarks. I think that in app purchases are in general a good way to get an app that works for you. But nothing seems to work correctly even after purchasing pro and several other items that should all ready be working in pro. Don’t buy this piece of junk!
Full of Sales Ads
by gary25468 on 2020/07/17 14:27
Constantly hit with ads and requires you to purchase more to save a simple picture. Watermark on everything is the worst!
Lost my work because I skip your ad
by dizzyizzi6 on 2020/07/14 02:58
Three times I created a collage and three times after I “X” out the advertised app screen, the screen goes black and I had to start all over again. Totally disappointed. I’ve used this app for a long time. Guess it’s time to switch.

by Brt1 on 2020/07/06 05:36
Ads are excessive and annoying. And my latest saved draft cut off half the text. I always have to start over at least two times trying to use this app. Not worth it.
DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT!
by Peroliiikeee on 2020/07/04 18:38
This app is AWFUL. The app forces you to buy little packages to even use it and then when you go to save the picture, it saves THE ORIGINAL PHOTO, NOT THE PHOTO YOU CREATED WITH THE APP! I sent a message to support asking for my $ back. Complete scam.
Super Glitchy
by h65424685 on 2020/07/04 14:58
Every time a video ad plays my work is gone when I get back to the edit screen. Then when I finally get my very simple edits made I save it and the stickers and text have moved from where I wanted them. I even bought the sticker pack which I obviously regret because I ended up deleting it. Just use another app.
Hate this app
by New momma APRN on 2020/07/03 15:55
This is the most difficult to use photo app I’ve ever had, and it was costly for being so awful. After I’ve edited my picture it WILL NOT save the changes so that I can use the new photo. I’ve tried saving to my gallery, posting to social media, texting the new photo to myself, etc, etc and nothing works

Annoying af
by salamanderz7214 on 2020/06/26 12:20
So, I downloaded this app with the intent in making thumbnails and other pics I needed for my new YouTube channel & the options are SO annoying. Firstly, there is never any shadow option to text, despite there being the illusion of one.... it doesn’t work AT ALL. It doesn’t properly allow you to overlay pictures. It is super annoying to edit the text. And here comes the most annoying part: 9 times out of 10, if you try to save the image to your gallery, it doesn’t save OR gets saved wrong. I can’t tell you how many times I spent forever finally getting a pic almost how I wanted it (because of functionality, I was never fully pleased) and it would push all my text and such to a corner. I was better off just taking a screenshot of it while editing and then cropping it. I paid for some of the features and regret it - this app is a complete waste of time and money.
Greedy
by ces1198 on 2020/06/24 09:51
This app is so greedy, a couple of years ago I paid $6.99 for the pro version no ads all access. The new updates won’t allow me access and I have ads? Y’ALL WANT ME TO PAY $2.99? A month for something I should already have access to? I’ve used this app for years but I will be deleting the app from my phone because it’s ridiculous y’all are double charging people.
I will be moving to a different app.
by ThunderBuddy_36 on 2020/06/21 20:20
Iv had this app for years & have been using it for years but all of the bugs, issues & advertisements have gotten worse slowly & slowly & Iv came to the conclusion that I can no longer stand it. I cannot save anymore photos from this app, every time I finish editing a photo & try to go save it to camera roll.. an AD pops up & when the AD is done my screen goes black & stays that way till i go back to the home screen. I have a brand new phone & tried reinstalling the app. Still does it everytime. Also, the watermarks got bigger & takes up a 3rd of my photo. I dont wanna have pay just take a word off my photo. No one wants a watermark dude. I just wanna put a border on my photo & save it okay?
Frustrating to use the borders
by hma07 on 2020/06/20 06:32
I paid for the unlock bundle a couple of years ago and usually love using the app and all of the content. However, lately anytime I try to add a border, I have to tap on the download arrow for the borders in a group and when they come up there is nothing there. I have tried using the restore purchase button but nothing changes. It’s frustrating to pay for access to something and to not be able to use it.
Not worth the time....
by BeaLundy on 2020/06/18 15:49
Went from 3 stars to 1. This app has only gotten worse from my last review. Updates don’t fix issues that have plagued this app from the beginning. Now, if I add text to a photo, the letters somehow disappear. It takes multiple steps to add a sticker, save, open again, and add text, save again only to open the final and it’s still not right. Loved this app but it’s not worth the hassle anymore. ✌🏼
Glitching and unusable
by 1j2r3s on 2020/06/17 15:21
I’ve been using the app for a year now, paid for many sticker packages and suddenly the app shirts out and goes to a completely black screen after I edit. An ad pops up and after that it goes black so I can’t save photos. There’s nothing to help on the app support page.
I need help.

Garbage
by Raya91 on 2020/06/15 21:05
This app is absolute rubbish. If you add text it doesn’t matter what you make the photos look like, the text will be resized when you try to save or post it. It is a waste of money, time, and effort and I will be reporting it to iTunes.

by Wolfegrrl on 2020/06/03 21:31
It still edits pictures fine but if I save it to my phone and then go to post in on Instagram it either shuts down ig or posts as a black square. The entire point of this app for me is to post on Instagram. Why aren’t they compatible anymore? Update 6/3: I can’t use it for anything now! If I try to use it on any app, even after saving the photo to my phone first, when I try to share it to ANYTHING it glitches out and closes whatever I had open. Please fix this. I didn’t pay money to not be able to use this app.

by Pyre Quagmire on 2020/06/03 18:24
This is a very capable and powerful app. It is easy to use but I find that almost everything I want to do, I have to purchase that phase of the app. Furthermore, advertisements lock up the app for a length of time unless “ad free” is purchased. I would definitely give the app a stronger rating if they would just charge more for the download and be done with it.
Please update again
by Larri<3 on 2020/05/31 14:34
I had had this app for YEARS. Its literally the best photo word/sticker editor out there. I love it... except the new update!! Ugh its buggy from hell. My export’s wording is always messed up (half there, makes it tiny and in the top corner, ect). The stickers are working but they too sometimes are half there like they were erased! I paid for this app, and the extras and love it... except now its buggy 😕 please fix and I will leave my better review!

Sub par
by J'etoile on 2020/05/28 19:01
I bought this because I was trying to do a text overlay with my 11 pro max and didn’t want the watermark. However, This app is very un-user friendly. If you save a photo with text on it, and then try to continue to edit it, even though the app hasn’t been closed and the image is still on the screen, it completely messes up the format and you basically have to start all over. The beauty tool- I’m unaware of what this does because it prompts me to open my gallery or search the web for an image. It’s just such a poorly designed app- there are wayyyy better free ones without the frustration this one comes with. Going to delete off my phone and chalk it up to a $6.99 loss. Hah!

Extremely frustrated
by thereviewboard on 2020/05/20 14:10
This is the BEST, most superior photo editing app I have ever used, except that text import bugs are not really fixed. I have complained for years, but the problems persist. You cannot copy and paste text without it being absurd to edit. It comes into the app in a long vertical column, each word stretched out. When you try to fix this, it goes into an enormous horizontal configuration. When you try to fix that, it freezes, or deletes text or you have to do all this manual manipulation which takes forever and usually won&#39;t give you the prompts you need to get it done. I normally would go directly to tech support, but after doing this many times, the problem is still there. I am extremely frustrated. I&#39;ve tried using other apps instead, but none are as good as this one minus this problem. Please fix it!!!
Needs to be fixed
by Louis Montaño on 2020/05/19 23:07
I have had this app for a while and with the recent update it doesn’t recognize my purchase to remove the watermark. I keep trying to restore my purchase but says I don’t have any. I liked the app but now just going to use spark post or Snapseed.

Difficult to navigate and I’m why are there more ads after I paid for the app?
by Michelleshawaii on 2020/05/06 18:15
First of all, I think that the app looks great at first, but when you try it out, the ad is right over the tools at the bottom of the app. After I bought the app, other ads kept popping up and I really didn’t like that! I think I’ll keep looking for another app to use.
Nope nope nope
by Allie_0143 on 2020/04/29 20:43
I wouldn’t recommend this app because you have to buy most of the things. also when I was editing pictures of my dogs I was putting the word “the gang” in it and it was totally glitching out and the word wasn’t even there and if it was half the word was gone. If you want a AWESOME editing app then get picCollage it’s amazing.
Not so great anymore
by 19hannah81 on 2020/04/29 05:25
When I first got the app it was great! I paid for a couple extra features and it worked great. But for the last few months it’s gone downhill the text isn’t the size I made it over the picture, or it’s cut off, or completely in the wrong area. Very disappointed. Wish I could get my money back for the extra features I paid for. Not worth it!
Needs work
by NJthhPT on 2020/04/28 07:47
When I try to edit a picture and adds a quote and border to it, it shows an ad then a black screen appears and I have to start all the way over multiple times. Also, sometimes when I add words to a picture it saves looking weird, like the words aren’t proportioned on the picture correctly at all!! This is very upsetting.

by Unimpressed_Consumer on 2020/04/27 00:07
This app just isn’t capable of much. The filters are cool, and the tools are alright, but your just too limited. The text option is broken, totally ruining your photo if you add too much. The ads are unbearable unless you purchase free mode, with a pop up for PicLab pro IN YOUR WORK SPACE. For what it’s worth, they never advertised themselves to be anything more than a way to make cool photos and add headings, but I would have liked it if it could just do more. Not new tools, but just less broken.
Features not working
by universecontrolsus on 2020/04/26 03:12
I paid to remove the watermark on this app and the shadow effect when you add a text doesn’t work. It’s now useless to me. Uninstalled and reinstalled and the issue hasn’t gone away in weeks. Same thing happens on my iPhone.

BUGS GALORE for ALWAYS
by Red Wings Woodie on 2020/04/17 14:40
I’m embarrassed by how much time I’ve (wasted in vain) spent trying to make something on this app only for it to crash or bug out on me. Try to change color on text more than once? Crashes. Now all my text goes mini into a corner box and can’t go back. I’ve tried using this for years and I’d guess 50% of the time I’m frustrated by bugs. I never complain about much of anything but I’m just so tired of this. Time for a new edit photo app.
Even after purchase of full product (went pro)
by pattieaustin on 2020/04/13 18:30
It keeps showing items to buy. I bought the pro thinking it sounds familiar but I couldn’t find where I had purchased before. I was still being asked to purchase watermark removal. Etc. just not to keep on how app “works”. It’s not as smooth as it could be. Well after further investigating, it seems I also purchased remove watermark for 1.99 in 2018. So now I have that and the purchase of pro and it’s still acting like I need to purchase some of these items. Just frustrating. I’ve got the newest updates. Ive updated all my apps and IOS.
Scammed!
by Miltonalmeida on 2020/04/13 15:45
I purchased this add twice in 5 minutes and still could not get the adds removed neither use the full features. It’s just a few bucks and I will wait till I request the refund, but I should’ve known better than to purchase apps in the AppStore... NO CREDIBILITY!
Text always gets cut off when adding to photo
by LJOY817 on 2020/04/09 17:50
I tried to add “National GO Red Day” to a team work photo and every time I save the photo, the word “Day” part gets cut off from the pic. Not sure why this is happening, since the text is all within the photo frame. This has happened to several photos where Happy Birthday would get cut off when I try to add my own text. I love the app but hate that how this always glitches with the text feature. Another issue is that I purchased the full sticker package and can’t select the last option “friends and family”. I have the latest iPhone and surprised how I’m unable to select it.
Too many ads
by HPBookGeek on 2020/04/08 12:37
I couldn’t create anything bc every time I tried to “save” ( click the check) I would get an ad. Thst makes me 1) not able to use the app gor my intended purpose and 2) P*ss me off that I would never consider the ads being shown ( not good gor the advertisers) There was promise with what the app can do, but will be deleleting it.

My go-to photo editor
by Maryland RVer on 2020/03/30 12:13
I often download whatever is touted to be the latest and greatest app. But for photo editing, PICLAB is the one I always come back to for reliable results. It is intuitive to use which helps us non-techies!!😄 If a bug pops up after an update, the support staff gets it fixed in a reasonable amount of time which is important to me in apps I actually have paid to use. I really enjoy sharing my photos after cropping and creatively enhancing them to suit my whim—thanks PICLAB for giving such a good assortment of tools all in one place!

Adds adds adds everywhere. Make a grade A app ill pay. But not a college programing grade app. Greed is so bad these days, sad. Cant get a simple text sticker app.
Please don’t purchase
by shaleliz on 2020/03/25 06:26
For some reason I thought it was a good idea to purchase this app. I used to use it for white borders which worked well. But recently tried using script on my photos. I tried 3 different time and it saved completely different than what I worked in in the app. Thought it was user error however after trying it three times... each time same unwanted result. Try another app this one isn’t worth it.
Update on my review from 1/12/2020
by Rate2k on 2020/03/16 07:08
I have YET to get an email back since OCTOBER. I have sent like 3 or 4 emails and none have been answered. However, My last review was replied to and they said the issues i had would be fixed with the next update. They have NOT. Still unable to use an app with the extensions i paid for. The shadow text does not work, the app keeps crashing which means i have to start over whatever project i was working on and when i do get it done the app cuts off HALF YOUR TEXT/picture once you press save. Please save your time, money and phone storage space. Whatever issues you will come across you wont ever get resolved.
Ads are annoying

I hate when these pop up interrupt
No borders?
by :/ blargh on 2020/03/14 20:18
I haven’t had the option to use any of the borders, except color or mirror, so spent the $7 to get access to everything. I click on all the options and it’s just blank, nothing is there. I just updated the app; this is really disappointing as that used to be one of my favorite things in the app. Sad I had to spend $7 to find out that it’s the app itself and not because I don’t have access to it.
Good editor
by jgkronos on 2020/03/14 14:00
Easy to make photos into art and it’s my go-to app, but there are ads that don’t close and they disrupt work sometimes.
App keeps crashing
by hsjshsja on 2020/03/09 14:59
The app crashes every time I try to save a photo that has been edited. Can’t save any edited photos.
Glitches
by Gmascookie on 2020/03/07 05:01
With the updates I have so many ads I can’t get anything done in a timely matter. It’s so frustrating. What I used to get for free is no longer free. On top of all that it’s so glitchy the text that is saved and added to the picture in my gallery doesn’t show up on the saved pic on my phone. Not impressed.
Disappointed
by SrQr on 2020/03/05 22:27
The app was working fine, till the latest update, once the entire editing is done, it directs you to ad page, even though it’s frustrating to watch ads, you watch it and once it’s over and you press the close button, the entire page turns black, leaving you wondering what have gone wrong
App crashes
by Lisa piclab on 2020/03/05 00:39
The app crashes every time I try to open it still.
No thanks to your upgrades!
by LynnVF on 2020/03/01 16:05
What a shame to change something and make it harder to manage - and then charge to do things you formerly allowed for free! And a note to your coders - on my iPhone X -it’s now impossible to use the “Family &amp; Friends” stickers that are at the very bottom of row. You can’t move down that far to get it to activate. So - I’ll be trying to revert back to an earlier version or find another App!
Junk!
by ACMY808 on 2020/03/01 03:10
Y’all did an update and the app still doesn’t work and crashes repeatedly. Smh
What Happened Here???
by PeteG0429 on 2020/02/29 14:42
I touch the text to bring up editing features like the three bubbles for shadowing and it no longer shows the shadows of any color on any color font! You can’t put letters on same color backgrounds anymore and when you use this feature it saves the top left portion of the text only??? What happened to this app? I didn’t pay money to have all of the features unlocked only to be screwed in an update! And it’s not a hiccup because I deleted the app and reinstalled it - in the immortal words of Yukon Cornelius...NOTHIN’ Well, you said you fixed the shadow effect for the fonts, but no! This recent update did not fix the issue that is most frustrating to me. And for you to give a response to say the problem is fixed is very disingenuous. I hope people read this and don’t actually pay money to unlock features if they’re only going to be changed or messed up and developers can’t even figure out how to make a small fix. Especially when it used to work just fine! Very disappointed 😔
Get bad
by KaterPrii on 2020/02/29 02:03
Before was very good now the text go cut when you save it , Still the same I dont know why I update the app but still the same when you save it
Horrible.
by Rebe64 on 2020/02/17 19:58
There are so many add-ons to buy for anywhere between $3 to $7, there is a permanent watermark that you have to pay $7 to get rid of. Video adds that pop up before you can share the photo. And when I tried to share it with instagram it cut off the text of the photo. It’s was utter crap. And through all that it kept asking how I liked the app to please rate it. I am deleting it right now from my phone.
Crashes
by SosoBear on 2020/02/14 22:12

I love this app, but...
by shay_girl_shayy on 2020/02/09 09:51
I’ve been using PicLab for years now. I love their features and think the variety and number of stuff you get from the package deal is awesome. But I recently got a new phone (iPhone XR) and the different screen makes it so some things aren’t accessible, such as the “Family &amp; Friends” sticker folder. Additionally the ability to add shadows to things has just completely disappeared. I’m only giving two stars to bring this to their attention partly because I’m not sure where my mobile message to support went but also because I’m hoping that this is seen ASAP! Other than these minor glitches it’s pretty awesome, although the inability to have shadows does make it harder to complete a lot of projects involving pictures with text &amp;/or sticker overlay. Hoping a fix for these issues might already be in the works, and if not then I really hope they will be soon! The one sticker folder I can live without for the time being, but the shadows I can’t given the type of projects I use the app for. I don’t want to go anywhere else but I may have to in order to complete my projects 😔 I’m really bumming out because this app has been my best friend since 2013! I’ll definitely be revising my review once I know it’s on their radar!
This app used to be great!!
by dillhotse on 2020/02/05 14:11
It is terrible to use now. You locked portions that used to be free and it’s now SUPER SLOW
Interfact is terrible
by Poderator on 2020/02/04 02:56
It’s slow and buggy and you cannot easily move on to the next item. Regret buying it.
You need to fix the shadow text feature.
by Sharp849 on 2020/02/03 15:41
You need to fix it it hasn’t been working in forever.
Too many glitches
by smileykiley2626 on 2020/01/28 17:13
The whole reason I purchased this app was for the fonts but the drop shadow does not work, the font size increases once I try to save it and about a third of the text gets cut off in the saved picture (even when it looks fine in the editing stage) will be deleting this app and suggest you save your money.
Text gets cut off
by Allthemfanfics on 2020/01/25 23:05
When I add text to a photo, the text looks fine, but when I try to save it to my camera roll the text gets cut off. I’ve tried deleting and redownloading the app but nothing works. This has been happening for several weeks now :/
Ads!!
by ScarlettLiz on 2020/01/23 12:45
I am completely unable to use the app. After I select a photo to edit, an Ad starts that Does not clear from the app once it’s finished!!
Don t use
by Blade 46 on 2020/01/19 16:21
It suxks. Can t save my photos.
PicLab
by Kmvet on 2020/01/18 00:51
Just deleted this app. Glitching, closing out unexpectedly while I’m editing a photo. Numerous times I add an edited photo to my library only to lose all the editions. Don’t waste your money.
Session Token is Expired
by Beth_JustBeth on 2018/05/05 22:20
I’ve contacted support 3 times in the last few months about this. I have still received no feedback so I’m taking it here. I paid $6.99 to unlock all the extra stickers to edit my photos. Now, every time I go to use the stickers to edit my photo, none of them open and a message that states ‘session token is expired’ is displayed on my phone. I wish I could be given some information as to how to remedy this, as I’ve used this ap for years to edit my photos and always been pleased with it. However being ignored by the support team and not being given any help on how to use a service I PAID for leaves me no option but to rate this ap with 1 Star.
Needs work!! Badly
by evonbart on 2017/09/28 23:29
I’m giving it a 1 star a few reasons. I really couldn’t tell what all this app could do and so I paid the full price for everything. Once I did that the shop page acts as if I still needed to buy separate items and when I went to change to the main page it prompts me to watch a video to remove the watermark. Excuse me? I just paid $6.99 for that (EVERYTHING). Strike one. Ok so I import a pic to edit and add a basic filter to. Even tapping ORIGINAL which should restore the image to its original state destroyed the original imported image and smeared it with this weird foggy layer - it’s awful and makes filters unusable for me where other apps work just fine. Strike two. Next I tried the magazine layout because that could be useful for some things I might do. Each layout has a template with words across but I couldn’t figure out how to edit the default text so it says useless things like PICLAB and never in my life would I need your app name on any project I’m working on. Strike three. DONE. I’m not asking for a refund because of my own idiocy. Don’t make my mistake thinking buying it will make it more useful. These guys obviously never tested this before shipping it out or don’t care what customers think. Either way enjoy my $6.99 - you deserve this review

Extremely frustrated
by thereviewboard on 2020/05/20 14:10
This is the BEST, most superior photo editing app I have ever used, except that text import bugs are not really fixed. I have complained for years, but the problems persist. You cannot copy and paste text without it being absurd to edit. It comes into the app in a long vertical column, each word stretched out. When you try to fix this, it goes into an enormous horizontal configuration. When you try to fix that, it freezes, or deletes text or you have to do all this manual manipulation which takes forever and usually won&#39;t give you the prompts you need to get it done. I normally would go directly to tech support, but after doing this many times, the problem is still there. I am extremely frustrated. I&#39;ve tried using other apps instead, but none are as good as this one minus this problem. Please fix it!!!

Paid for it twice still not working!
by Paragon5s on 2018/10/05 01:00
I was using an iPhone 5s when I got this app. I paid to unlock everything. When I upgraded to an iPhone 8 plus (using the same apple id) I redownloaded it and restored purchases but it didn’t work. I contacted apple support and they told me to contact developer. As adviced by apple support, I contacted developer and it took them forever to respond. I decided to just pay to unlock everything again and didn’t bother wasting time waiting for their response. 5 months after, the sticker pack won’t download. The borders that I previously downloaded one by one have to be redownloaded again. This is very disappointing.
Text always gets cut off when adding to photo
by LJOY817 on 2020/04/09 17:50
I tried to add “National GO Red Day” to a team work photo and every time I save the photo, the word “Day” part gets cut off from the pic. Not sure why this is happening, since the text is all within the photo frame. This has happened to several photos where Happy Birthday would get cut off when I try to add my own text. I love the app but hate that how this always glitches with the text feature. Another issue is that I purchased the full sticker package and can’t select the last option “friends and family”. I have the latest iPhone and surprised how I’m unable to select it.
One of the best Photo Editing Apps
by ParaParaParakeet on 2019/09/05 21:18
I got this app for free a few years ago and paid the extra $6.99 to unlock everything. It’s a bit expensive to unlock everything at first, but it’s my favorite app for editing photos because of how many stickers and filters they have to choose from, and because of how easy it is to restore purchases. My only complaint would be that they removed the FRIENDS sticker package from the updated app. I understand it may not be as trendy anymore or there could be copyright issues, but I really liked being able to slap Joey’s face and catchphrase on my photos.
Tries to double charge you
by W Irving on 2018/10/04 17:48
I had already purchased the expanded features and was attempting to modify a photograph. When I tried to remove the watermark, it took me to a screen requiring me to buy the features again. I could not recall how long ago I had purchased the features, and thinking maybe my purchase had expired, I agreed to buy the features. Luckily the Apple store indicated I had already purchased and asked if I wanted the features for free. I said “yes,” but when I went back to my picture, it wouldn’t let me finish but instead I was again taken to the purchase features window. I tried to close out and go back, neither of which did anything, and then hit the “redo” icon and it said my prior purchases were “restored.” Why would I need to restore something I have already purchased? What an incredible waste of time.
This is so good
by Cutie cat 7765 on 2017/09/28 00:38
If you are interested into some filters and fun customization things for your pictures then download this app! I’ve been using it for a little less than a year and I’m so addicted! I’m still learning how to do the cool filters but overall it’s a good app. It does have some in app purchases but it doesn’t pop up all of the time (unless if you are using a filter it might pop up) like some of the other picture apps I’ve tried. So if you don’t like it well... Everyone doesn’t need to like this app but it’s good for me
Issues with Text Box
by Actuary44 on 2020/09/23 22:51
I am having a very difficult time trying to add a text box to a collage. I would add one text box and be able to change the color of the text just fine, but when I add a second box, I am unable to change the font color or font style. Also when I finish editing a picture and save it to my phone, the result looks different from what I see as my final product. Text boxes not showing up or randomly placed on the picture not anywhere near where I wanted it. Long story short, there are a lot of bugs with this, and if someone can respond to this and fix the problem that would be appreciated. I paid for this app and it would be nice if it worked properly.
My go-to photo editor
by Maryland RVer on 2020/03/30 12:13
I often download whatever is touted to be the latest and greatest app. But for photo editing, PICLAB is the one I always come back to for reliable results. It is intuitive to use which helps us non-techies!!😄 If a bug pops up after an update, the support staff gets it fixed in a reasonable amount of time which is important to me in apps I actually have paid to use. I really enjoy sharing my photos after cropping and creatively enhancing them to suit my whim—thanks PICLAB for giving such a good assortment of tools all in one place!
Great, But There's Just One Issue
by FenneKat on 2017/03/08 01:53
This app really is fantastic, I&#39;ve just got one problem: my purchases aren&#39;t restoring. I paid $7 for the full upgrade but later on I deleted the app, reinstalled it, and even though I logged in it&#39;s not working. I click the shop, get told that the restoration was successful, only to be redirected to the shop and thrown into an endless loop of this. Anyone else have this issue? I&#39;m gonna delete and re-download to see if that helps. Other than that, it rocks! 5/5 stars for sure.
Very glitchy
by Dacagle on 2018/07/19 18:54
I have had this app several months. I am unimpressed with its functionality. Problems have not been corrected with updates. Constantly freezes and certain functions will stop working mid use, requiring a reboot of the app. (Inability to change the color of the font is the one I run into most often). This closes out anything you were working on without saving it, so you must start over. I use this for business so it actually interferes with my work and wastes valuable time. I paid for full access to all features, and while I like the options it has, it isn’t worth all the trouble. I will be purchasing a new app for photo editing. Disappointed to have wasted $6.99.
Perfect for my needs
by Mab of Fey on 2019/06/21 15:18
I’ve used this app for a few years for everything from organizing photos for my recipes to sales on sites like Poshmark, Etsy and eBay, as well as personal photo editing. I would love to see a few new collage options, especially one allowing for six uniform pictures. Maybe for a future update? Thanks for an extremely useful app. I certainly feel like I have gotten my money’s worth (and then some) by using the upgraded package.
I will be moving to a different app.
by ThunderBuddy_36 on 2020/06/21 20:20
Iv had this app for years &amp; have been using it for years but all of the bugs, issues &amp; advertisements have gotten worse slowly &amp; slowly &amp; Iv came to the conclusion that I can no longer stand it. I cannot save anymore photos from this app, every time I finish editing a photo &amp; try to go save it to camera roll.. an AD pops up &amp; when the AD is done my screen goes black &amp; stays that way till i go back to the home screen. I have a brand new phone &amp; tried reinstalling the app. Still does it everytime. Also, the watermarks got bigger &amp; takes up a 3rd of my photo. I dont wanna have pay just take a word off my photo. No one wants a watermark dude. I just wanna put a border on my photo &amp; save it okay?
Sub par
by J'etoile on 2020/05/28 19:01
I bought this because I was trying to do a text overlay with my 11 pro max and didn’t want the watermark. However, This app is very un-user friendly. If you save a photo with text on it, and then try to continue to edit it, even though the app hasn’t been closed and the image is still on the screen, it completely messes up the format and you basically have to start all over. The beauty tool- I’m unaware of what this does because it prompts me to open my gallery or search the web for an image. It’s just such a poorly designed app- there are wayyyy better free ones without the frustration this one comes with. Going to delete off my phone and chalk it up to a $6.99 loss. Hah!
Love this app!!
by A REAL Dog Lover ❤️🐶 on 2018/07/29 18:52
I love this app! My friend told me to take a few pictures of her, and so I did. Before she asked me to take pictures I had never used the app. I decided to try the app out after taking the pics, and they turned out AMAZING!! 😍😍 Even my friend said soon she’d might have to start “paying me” because of how much she enjoyed the pictures. I love using this app to edit my photos! It’s the best and my recommendation to any person who needs a photo editing app!
Practically Perfect but…
by aestheticBreath on 2018/09/02 01:07
I don’t really have any complaints with this app. However, there is a particular feature I wish was added. When it comes to choosing borders, I feel it would be a lot easier to increase or decrease the border size based on a number line, rather than having to expand or shrink the border size by only being able to guess what is a decent size. With a number value applied to change the border size, it makes making photos of the same size much easier.
Amazing.
by PandaMan4455 on 2018/01/26 12:10
I’ve personally been using this app for months. I’ve used it for a lot of things because it’s quick and easy. I bought the pass for everything and it’s just amazing. This app is great for simple things you need like some text here and there or some other things that you want to do without buying a whole app that doesn’t work in the end. In my opinion, this is highly recommended.
Even after purchase of full product (went pro)
by pattieaustin on 2020/04/13 18:30
It keeps showing items to buy. I bought the pro thinking it sounds familiar but I couldn’t find where I had purchased before. I was still being asked to purchase watermark removal. Etc. just not to keep on how app “works”. It’s not as smooth as it could be. Well after further investigating, it seems I also purchased remove watermark for 1.99 in 2018. So now I have that and the purchase of pro and it’s still acting like I need to purchase some of these items. Just frustrating. I’ve got the newest updates. Ive updated all my apps and IOS.
Fun app but most of it is for sale
by Dorislt on 2018/12/29 08:10
I enjoyed editing my picture but there aren’t as many options as many other apps that I use for photo editing. It didn’t take long to find out that much of what I wanted had to be purchased. There would be one and sometimes two stickers or sayings that I would have liked to use, but they were only available for purchase of a whole set. And I couldn’t find out if I could color the stickers so they weren’t all white, which doesn’t do much if your background is white or light.
Does Not Work Correctly
by SMR607 on 2018/10/27 16:39
I have been using this App for about 2 yrs. At first it worked great. Since the latest update I can’t see the stickers :( I have had to purchase the stickers 3 times and still can’t see them in the app. The text edit tools freezes and doesn’t let me go back to edit color ... Why is it so bad? I wish I had the old App. I’m deleting it and getting something else.
Edit/web search doesn’t work
by annlw582 on 2018/08/29 18:16
I’ve tried to contact support on this app twice over their edit/web search feature and they never answer. Their web search clip art feature no longer works. It hasn’t worked for over a week and no sign of it working. This was my favorite part of this app. Adding clip art. Very disappointed.
Half and half
by shelby82393 on 2018/08/26 15:56
Sometimes the app works like it should, frequently, though... it falls short. When adding text, it typically works well for the first set. If you want to change the color, shadowing, etc. it normally works well! If you add another set of text it 9/10 times will not allow you to change the color of the text, adjust shadowing, etc. Then if you happen to click the first set of text, it typically kicks that color back to white with no way to adjust it back. Hence needing to close the app and start over. Extremely inconvenient!
It is so close to greatness
by Unimpressed_Consumer on 2020/04/27 00:07
This app just isn’t capable of much. The filters are cool, and the tools are alright, but your just too limited. The text option is broken, totally ruining your photo if you add too much. The ads are unbearable unless you purchase free mode, with a pop up for PicLab pro IN YOUR WORK SPACE. For what it’s worth, they never advertised themselves to be anything more than a way to make cool photos and add headings, but I would have liked it if it could just do more. Not new tools, but just less broken.
Can’t change font color any longer
by Scrabblevigilante on 2019/10/10 01:35
I have reached out to support who keep telling me what I already know. However, when I click on the color wheel, nothing happens. Frustrating and will have to find another app to make album cover art. Used to love this app, but it’s useless if I can not change font colors.
Almost perfect
by Nacho Mendez on 2019/10/15 00:49
It used to worked perfectly for me, it has limitations obviously is not an editing software but it works for me, my only issue with it is that when I try to arrange things like pull something forward or something back it works in the app but when the image is saved the items appear in the order they were placed. If this was fixed I would give it 5 stars.
Not Great So Far, First Timer Here
by colbyjones on 2020/09/13 02:45
I just downloaded this to spice up my instagram photos. After my second text box, the next few I tried kept jumping into the middle of nowhere (not in the picture frame) and I couldn’t move them. I paid for the premium version thinking that you could only have so many text boxes on one photo and that may have been why it was glitching. I had to re-do this photo twice because the app unexpectedly closed down. I’m hoping this turns around or I will be reaching out for a refund.
Love it but one problem
by Scorbus4ever on 2017/08/09 19:00
I absolutely LOVE this app! I use it to create cute pictures to promote animals at my local shelter. I upgraded to the full version because it&#39;s totally worth it, but you can definitely get plenty done with the free version. The only problem is that for about a year I haven&#39;t been able to use the backgrounds. I can use the single color ones but none of the others. Please fix this!
PicLab was the best picture app ever
by Bdubsworld on 2017/09/23 21:37
I am applying for sponcership for my truck and I want professional pictures and I only get one shot so as many as I can add in a single photo can be a huge advantage. I&#39;ve been trying to remove the water mark considering I&#39;ve purchased the full unlock. I haven&#39;t used it in awhile but the app is acting like I&#39;ve paid nothing tried restore app purchases, tried app support (it&#39;s a useless tab on the website. I&#39;ve tried every way to contact support and there&#39;s no such thing. Kinda funny like they are forcing people to buy they&#39;re in app purchase again....
It’s gone downhill
by Sidlova.18 on 2020/07/23 13:20
I’ve had this app since like 2014 or something. With every new phone I downloaded it again and again. But recently, it’s just stopped working. I edit my photo and go to save it and an ad pops up, I exit out of the ad, then it goes to a black screen and I have to close the app. I’ve tried 5-6 times and it’s still doing it. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it twice and it’s STILL doing it. This app used to be my go-to but now I’m trying to find a replacement but none are as good as this app USED to be. I miss the old app I have no idea what happened. It’s just so bad.

by itskarlsx on 2019/12/06 05:48
I have been using this app forever and I have never experienced a problem until now. I edit a picture and usually the words I’ve written on the picture have disappeared or have been cut off once I save to gallery. I love this app but it is not serving items purpose of the edit doesn’t hold pass the process of saving to your camera roll.
Great!
by Chasers mommy on 2018/09/22 04:09
I love this app! It is my favorite one to use for monthly updates of my kids! There’s always plenty of options for me to express my creativity and each milestone of my children’s lives! I would recommend it over any other photo design app!! Love all of the stickers and can’t wait to see what new ones are added!
Quick switch it back! This new app is horrible 😢😢😡😡
by dj12568 on 2018/08/21 17:59
Wow, what were you thinking 🤔 when you updated this app? This use to be one of my favorite apps, &amp; now I am about to delete it. As my Grandpa use to say, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. Your newest update took something that was good &amp; turned it into something that is less user friendly, and no longer worth having.
Multiple times purchased
by JC Heart Designs on 2018/12/23 07:06
Not only have I purchased this app and the other pic editor app 3 times now, there are a lot of bugs. I cannot download the various borders, shapes, and countless other things, nor can I seem to be able to contact support. It keeps telling me “purchases restored.” Not happy with this app.
Love it but needs an 'undo' button.
by jesuisxmoi on 2018/09/13 18:03
When you use the stickers it&#39;s very easy to accidentally delete it when you try to shrink the stickers very small. I must have accidentally deleted an edited sticker about 15 times. It&#39;s annoying and there&#39;s no way (that I know of... correct me if I&#39;m wrong) to undo a sudden change. It&#39;s really frustrating. But other than that I love it.
Shady
by Chelsfield on 2017/05/02 19:46
I have used this app for a while but after today I will be deleting it. I was editing a picture and it asked me if I wanted to remove the watermark one time by watching a video. I selected yes. I then got a pop up box that said &#34;video can not be loaded&#34; and immediately after a pop up box that said &#34;congratulations your purchase for $6.99 was successful&#34; (the amount to remove watermarks permanently). I did not select to purchase and did not authorize it. Apple was extremely helpful in removing the charge, however I no longer trust this app.
Used to love it but...
by Wolfegrrl on 2020/06/03 21:31
It still edits pictures fine but if I save it to my phone and then go to post in on Instagram it either shuts down ig or posts as a black square. The entire point of this app for me is to post on Instagram. Why aren’t they compatible anymore? Update 6/3: I can’t use it for anything now! If I try to use it on any app, even after saving the photo to my phone first, when I try to share it to ANYTHING it glitches out and closes whatever I had open. Please fix this. I didn’t pay money to not be able to use this app.
Frustrating...
by RevRedDawg73 on 2019/05/06 02:12
I hate when profits overshadow customer care. I used to use this for fun items randomly and did not mind paying for the extra stuff. I could create a pic and save it or share it for free but with the updates my friends can no longer see the photos without downloading the app and I cannot save the photos to my library anymore. It’s pretty much useless to me now. I would have to pay for the free version to be able to use it. Don’t download the free app unless you’re willing to upgrade to the purchased version.
Breaking
by Hippie Krys on 2020/01/06 02:31
I love PicLab and have used it for years but recently parts of it legit won’t work. Glitches. It shuts down randomly. Part of the pic doesn’t save. Words are missing. It’s so weird. I have deleted and reinstalled it and the same issues are happening. Also updated my phone. Still having issues. Can’t seem to get ahold of anyone to tell this to... so posting this review. If they can fix the issues, it’s a great app.
Sweet layouts but fails to save
by brandacelynn on 2019/01/28 06:55
It&#39;s got all these cute stickers and text options, and I love the collage templates. But every time I go to try to save a collage the app fails and all my hard work is for nothing. Never saves the collages and the app fails before your done. Not thrilled and looking for something that doesn&#39;t fail.

I’ve used this App for at least a couple of years now and enjoy it a lot (5 stars “a lot”). I use it for personal pics mostly, a few work ones for social media too. Stay up on updates to keep things working the way you get used to. I use it on an iPhone7, fyi
Can't Message Developer
by Transplant 2017 on 2019/07/26 07:31
I am having a small problem with the app. I cannot access the Friends &amp; Family stickers because the button is too low on the screen. I was looking for a way to contact the developer regarding this issue, but there doesn&#39;t seem to be a way. I hope this gets fixed. I would rate higher if it weren&#39;t for these two issues.
Overall excellent, but recently a problem
by Elijah Tucker icloud on 2018/06/19 05:43
I have made many posters and other works with this app - it&#39;s great. However, recently I haven&#39;t been able to change don&#39;t colors more than once in a project. This is a problem. Any fixes out there?
Ummm I like it but ....
by Nightlock343 on 2020/01/02 09:01
Why can’t all the text added to your creation be there. I have to take screen shots of the product or else I will lose it. That is why I am 3 stars and also I bought the $6.99 features but am a bit upset about the text not all being there when you check your save pic in your photos and noticing your text is not all there. Please fix it.
Bugs
by southerngirl18 on 2017/12/11 14:03
I love this app &amp; have used for a few years! But after the update- I can now only do font color if it the first thing I touch after starting text. If I write something first- then I can not change the color! I have to close the app completely &amp; start over if I want my color to be different. What a huge pain! I use this every day. I paid for most of the upgrades- but now it is not friendly to use! Please fix this!!
Do Not Download
by Kreekside on 2019/07/08 06:57
I just wanted to check out the app to see how it worked as a picture editing app and I will warn people not to download this app. When I went to go try it out I immediately was spammed with requests to purchase “ad free access” and when I tried to click out of app using the home button it took it as me purchasing it! I’m pretty angry with this feature. I feel like the company did this intentionally to get extra money. I will not be using this app and I suggest that you don’t either.
Please update again
by Larri<3 on 2020/05/31 14:34
I had had this app for YEARS. Its literally the best photo word/sticker editor out there. I love it... except the new update!! Ugh its buggy from hell. My export’s wording is always messed up (half there, makes it tiny and in the top corner, ect). The stickers are working but they too sometimes are half there like they were erased! I paid for this app, and the extras and love it... except now its buggy 😕 please fix and I will leave my better review!

Disappointed In Vertical View Only
by jcs012345 on 2020/10/22 20:34
On iPad Pro, App displays in vertical view only. App should switch to both horizontal and vertical view. Deleted app from iPad and will no longer consider it for In-App purchase.
Amazing!
by Krew_freak on 2020/10/20 16:49
My most favorite app in my phone. Yes there’s some bugs/glitches but overall it’s an easy and fun app to use. I know my way around it very well.
Easy & Fun
by Jojo1717 on 2020/10/17 23:34
This app is so easy and fun to use!! Love all the options, and I use it constantly for my social media. I do wish it gave the option to create the amount of squares you want, but I still love it!
The updates on the new version...
by Ddentz on 2020/10/17 21:21
Well, the new version is not nearly as good as the old. Shadows on text don’t exist, layers disappear. Ad after ad after ad on the free version. I assume there are no ads on the paid but I like to try before I buy but honestly nothing works as it should just yet.
Issues with Text Box
by Actuary44 on 2020/09/23 22:51
I am having a very difficult time trying to add a text box to a collage. I would add one text box and be able to change the color of the text just fine, but when I add a second box, I am unable to change the font color or font style. Also when I finish editing a picture and save it to my phone, the result looks different from what I see as my final product. Text boxes not showing up or randomly placed on the picture not anywhere near where I wanted it. Long story short, there are a lot of bugs with this, and if someone can respond to this and fix the problem that would be appreciated. I paid for this app and it would be nice if it worked properly.

Don’t Purchase
by nicknamesr on 2020/09/19 08:21
I purchased the subscription to unlock all the features and everything was going well, until a few months ago when l was unable to access most of the things. I’ve contacted support for them to give the run around and l still haven’t gotten this issue resolved, so if you’re thinking about purchasing this app keep your money.
Not Great So Far, First Timer Here
by colbyjones on 2020/09/13 02:45
I just downloaded this to spice up my instagram photos. After my second text box, the next few I tried kept jumping into the middle of nowhere (not in the picture frame) and I couldn’t move them. I paid for the premium version thinking that you could only have so many text boxes on one photo and that may have been why it was glitching. I had to re-do this photo twice because the app unexpectedly closed down. I’m hoping this turns around or I will be reaching out for a refund.
No Text Shadowing??
by lexluvskevinjonas on 2020/09/08 05:23
This used to be my favorite app app to edit text onto photos. One random update and now all of a sudden the “shadow” on text feature doesn’t work which makes such a huge difference! Super bummed. I keep hoping it will get fixed but I see tons of users are having the same issue.

by BAR112 on 2020/08/23 12:44
Just now opened the app and I get “confirm your age to continue”—what’s that about? I’m a senior citizen! Is this some sort of social-sharing app? If so, forget it! Also, being in portrait mode, it will be useless to me on my iPad Pro with attached keyboard. Don’t think I’ll be using it...
What? You now require my birthday to use the app?
by Jm0123xab on 2020/08/22 11:12
I’ve used this app (and purchased add-ones) for a few features (like the fonts) to finish images edited in more capable photo editors. After this latest update I am prompted to enter my full birth date before I can proceed. This is ridiculous and isn’t going to happen. Unfortunate overreach on your part folks...
App only works good on android
by peterd40 on 2020/08/15 13:37
Had this app working great on my Android. When I switched over to iPhone paid the fee it started cutting out my words
I like it but they need to fix it
by Jessike H on 2020/08/14 17:29
I’ve been using this app for a while now and every time it gets updated it seems like it gets more and more bugs. Every time I click to save all my changes things get erased and the text that I put on is not there is gone. Needs work I can’t even use it anymore.
Used to Love it
by GR8 D on 2020/08/14 02:55
I loved this app when I first got it, used it all the time. Now I literally can’t use it. I’ll try to save something I’ve made and half of it will be missing or the text is in a completely different location. I’m honestly sad about it .
Very Glitchy
by oldlady100 on 2020/08/13 19:16
Choose a different photo editor. This app is glitchy and it takes several tries to save edits and when you finally do sabe them the margins are not those you selected.
Lame mandatory age limit
by Rjc1224 on 2020/08/11 16:12
I’ve had this app for a couple years now and I opened up for the first time in a while. It requested that I enter in my age, (ok but really annoying), I entered in some random date (same year) and it told me I was not old enough. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m now locked out and not even going to bother to fix this, there are so many other apps that do the same thing. To clarify- I’m almost 3x the minimum age requirement for the app.

by Laceyyloulou on 2020/08/04 20:57
I got this app so I could add numbers to pictures of my newborn as she gets older, but sadly every time I save a picture to my gallery the stickers/text I’ve edited in is in a different spot AND is not the same size. I’ve paid for the full version, so if this issue doesn’t resolve itself I will be reaching out for a refund.

It’s gone downhill
by Sidlova.18 on 2020/07/23 13:20
I’ve had this app since like 2014 or something. With every new phone I downloaded it again and again. But recently, it’s just stopped working. I edit my photo and go to save it and an ad pops up, I exit out of the ad, then it goes to a black screen and I have to close the app. I’ve tried 5-6 times and it’s still doing it. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it twice and it’s STILL doing it. This app used to be my go-to but now I’m trying to find a replacement but none are as good as this app USED to be. I miss the old app I have no idea what happened. It’s just so bad.
Pay attention to the ratings
by Hodwooker on 2020/07/21 10:04
I should have read the reviews. I paid for the pro version and still have ads and watermarks. I think that in app purchases are in general a good way to get an app that works for you. But nothing seems to work correctly even after purchasing pro and several other items that should all ready be working in pro. Don’t buy this piece of junk!
Full of Sales Ads
by gary25468 on 2020/07/17 14:27
Constantly hit with ads and requires you to purchase more to save a simple picture. Watermark on everything is the worst!
Lost my work because I skip your ad
by dizzyizzi6 on 2020/07/14 02:58
Three times I created a collage and three times after I “X” out the advertised app screen, the screen goes black and I had to start all over again. Totally disappointed. I’ve used this app for a long time. Guess it’s time to switch.

by Brt1 on 2020/07/06 05:36
Ads are excessive and annoying. And my latest saved draft cut off half the text. I always have to start over at least two times trying to use this app. Not worth it.
DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT!
by Peroliiikeee on 2020/07/04 18:38
This app is AWFUL. The app forces you to buy little packages to even use it and then when you go to save the picture, it saves THE ORIGINAL PHOTO, NOT THE PHOTO YOU CREATED WITH THE APP! I sent a message to support asking for my $ back. Complete scam.
Super Glitchy
by h65424685 on 2020/07/04 14:58
Every time a video ad plays my work is gone when I get back to the edit screen. Then when I finally get my very simple edits made I save it and the stickers and text have moved from where I wanted them. I even bought the sticker pack which I obviously regret because I ended up deleting it. Just use another app.
Hate this app
by New momma APRN on 2020/07/03 15:55
This is the most difficult to use photo app I’ve ever had, and it was costly for being so awful. After I’ve edited my picture it WILL NOT save the changes so that I can use the new photo. I’ve tried saving to my gallery, posting to social media, texting the new photo to myself, etc, etc and nothing works

Annoying af
by salamanderz7214 on 2020/06/26 12:20
So, I downloaded this app with the intent in making thumbnails and other pics I needed for my new YouTube channel &amp; the options are SO annoying. Firstly, there is never any shadow option to text, despite there being the illusion of one.... it doesn’t work AT ALL. It doesn’t properly allow you to overlay pictures. It is super annoying to edit the text. And here comes the most annoying part: 9 times out of 10, if you try to save the image to your gallery, it doesn’t save OR gets saved wrong. I can’t tell you how many times I spent forever finally getting a pic almost how I wanted it (because of functionality, I was never fully pleased) and it would push all my text and such to a corner. I was better off just taking a screenshot of it while editing and then cropping it. I paid for some of the features and regret it - this app is a complete waste of time and money.
Greedy
by ces1198 on 2020/06/24 09:51
This app is so greedy, a couple of years ago I paid $6.99 for the pro version no ads all access. The new updates won’t allow me access and I have ads? Y’ALL WANT ME TO PAY $2.99? A month for something I should already have access to? I’ve used this app for years but I will be deleting the app from my phone because it’s ridiculous y’all are double charging people.
I will be moving to a different app.
by ThunderBuddy_36 on 2020/06/21 20:20
Iv had this app for years &amp; have been using it for years but all of the bugs, issues &amp; advertisements have gotten worse slowly &amp; slowly &amp; Iv came to the conclusion that I can no longer stand it. I cannot save anymore photos from this app, every time I finish editing a photo &amp; try to go save it to camera roll.. an AD pops up &amp; when the AD is done my screen goes black &amp; stays that way till i go back to the home screen. I have a brand new phone &amp; tried reinstalling the app. Still does it everytime. Also, the watermarks got bigger &amp; takes up a 3rd of my photo. I dont wanna have pay just take a word off my photo. No one wants a watermark dude. I just wanna put a border on my photo &amp; save it okay?
Frustrating to use the borders
by hma07 on 2020/06/20 06:32
I paid for the unlock bundle a couple of years ago and usually love using the app and all of the content. However, lately anytime I try to add a border, I have to tap on the download arrow for the borders in a group and when they come up there is nothing there. I have tried using the restore purchase button but nothing changes. It’s frustrating to pay for access to something and to not be able to use it.
Not worth the time....
by BeaLundy on 2020/06/18 15:49
Went from 3 stars to 1. This app has only gotten worse from my last review. Updates don’t fix issues that have plagued this app from the beginning. Now, if I add text to a photo, the letters somehow disappear. It takes multiple steps to add a sticker, save, open again, and add text, save again only to open the final and it’s still not right. Loved this app but it’s not worth the hassle anymore. ✌🏼
Glitching and unusable
by 1j2r3s on 2020/06/17 15:21
I’ve been using the app for a year now, paid for many sticker packages and suddenly the app shirts out and goes to a completely black screen after I edit. An ad pops up and after that it goes black so I can’t save photos. There’s nothing to help on the app support page.
I need help.
by Gator 0323 on 2020/06/16 13:07
When I’m posting stickers they move when I save the picture.
Nothing free?

Garbage
by Raya91 on 2020/06/15 21:05
This app is absolute rubbish. If you add text it doesn’t matter what you make the photos look like, the text will be resized when you try to save or post it. It is a waste of money, time, and effort and I will be reporting it to iTunes.
It works but......

It still edits pictures fine but if I save it to my phone and then go to post in on Instagram it either shuts down ig or posts as a black square. The entire point of this app for me is to post on Instagram. Why aren’t they compatible anymore? Update 6/3: I can’t use it for anything now! If I try to use it on any app, even after saving the photo to my phone first, when I try to share it to ANYTHING it glitches out and closes whatever I had open. Please fix this. I didn’t pay money to not be able to use this app.

by Pyre Quagmire on 2020/06/03 18:24
This is a very capable and powerful app. It is easy to use but I find that almost everything I want to do, I have to purchase that phase of the app. Furthermore, advertisements lock up the app for a length of time unless “ad free” is purchased. I would definitely give the app a stronger rating if they would just charge more for the download and be done with it.
Please update again

Sub par
by J'etoile on 2020/05/28 19:01
I bought this because I was trying to do a text overlay with my 11 pro max and didn’t want the watermark. However, This app is very un-user friendly. If you save a photo with text on it, and then try to continue to edit it, even though the app hasn’t been closed and the image is still on the screen, it completely messes up the format and you basically have to start all over. The beauty tool- I’m unaware of what this does because it prompts me to open my gallery or search the web for an image. It’s just such a poorly designed app- there are wayyyy better free ones without the frustration this one comes with. Going to delete off my phone and chalk it up to a $6.99 loss. Hah!
Bad now

Why do i have to pay to use certain colleges.... so stupid find another way to make your money , what sense does it make to be a college app but make us pay to use certain ones... disappointing!.
Features aren’t working
by TLamour on 2020/05/25 16:32
I’ve been noticing features aren’t working... like text shadow. I’ve purchased both vid &amp; pic lab full price. Is this app no longer active for updates? :( sad I love this app &amp; use it often!
Positivity the most frustrating app Ever!!

I have redone a collage 6 times, every time I try to save it, it completely closes out of the program!! And I lose everything!! Ugg I hate it!!
Extremely frustrated
by thereviewboard on 2020/05/20 14:10
This is the BEST, most superior photo editing app I have ever used, except that text import bugs are not really fixed. I have complained for years, but the problems persist. You cannot copy and paste text without it being absurd to edit. It comes into the app in a long vertical column, each word stretched out. When you try to fix this, it goes into an enormous horizontal configuration. When you try to fix that, it freezes, or deletes text or you have to do all this manual manipulation which takes forever and usually won&#39;t give you the prompts you need to get it done. I normally would go directly to tech support, but after doing this many times, the problem is still there. I am extremely frustrated. I&#39;ve tried using other apps instead, but none are as good as this one minus this problem. Please fix it!!!
Needs to be fixed
by Louis Montaño on 2020/05/19 23:07
I have had this app for a while and with the recent update it doesn’t recognize my purchase to remove the watermark. I keep trying to restore my purchase but says I don’t have any. I liked the app but now just going to use spark post or Snapseed.
Bugs need to be worked out
by Gia Brandt on 2020/05/14 00:16
It works... and then it doesn’t. I keep trying to save the same photo and the changes save distorted. I’m very annoyed that I paid for this app!

Difficult to navigate and I’m why are there more ads after I paid for the app?
by Michelleshawaii on 2020/05/06 18:15
First of all, I think that the app looks great at first, but when you try it out, the ad is right over the tools at the bottom of the app. After I bought the app, other ads kept popping up and I really didn’t like that! I think I’ll keep looking for another app to use.
Nope nope nope
by Allie_0143 on 2020/04/29 20:43
I wouldn’t recommend this app because you have to buy most of the things. also when I was editing pictures of my dogs I was putting the word “the gang” in it and it was totally glitching out and the word wasn’t even there and if it was half the word was gone. If you want a AWESOME editing app then get picCollage it’s amazing.
Not so great anymore
by 19hannah81 on 2020/04/29 05:25
When I first got the app it was great! I paid for a couple extra features and it worked great. But for the last few months it’s gone downhill the text isn’t the size I made it over the picture, or it’s cut off, or completely in the wrong area. Very disappointed. Wish I could get my money back for the extra features I paid for. Not worth it!
Needs work
by NJthhPT on 2020/04/28 07:47
When I try to edit a picture and adds a quote and border to it, it shows an ad then a black screen appears and I have to start all the way over multiple times. Also, sometimes when I add words to a picture it saves looking weird, like the words aren’t proportioned on the picture correctly at all!! This is very upsetting.

by Unimpressed_Consumer on 2020/04/27 00:07
This app just isn’t capable of much. The filters are cool, and the tools are alright, but your just too limited. The text option is broken, totally ruining your photo if you add too much. The ads are unbearable unless you purchase free mode, with a pop up for PicLab pro IN YOUR WORK SPACE. For what it’s worth, they never advertised themselves to be anything more than a way to make cool photos and add headings, but I would have liked it if it could just do more. Not new tools, but just less broken.
Features not working
by universecontrolsus on 2020/04/26 03:12
I paid to remove the watermark on this app and the shadow effect when you add a text doesn’t work. It’s now useless to me. Uninstalled and reinstalled and the issue hasn’t gone away in weeks. Same thing happens on my iPhone.

BUGS GALORE for ALWAYS
by Red Wings Woodie on 2020/04/17 14:40
I’m embarrassed by how much time I’ve (wasted in vain) spent trying to make something on this app only for it to crash or bug out on me. Try to change color on text more than once? Crashes. Now all my text goes mini into a corner box and can’t go back. I’ve tried using this for years and I’d guess 50% of the time I’m frustrated by bugs. I never complain about much of anything but I’m just so tired of this. Time for a new edit photo app.
Even after purchase of full product (went pro)
by pattieaustin on 2020/04/13 18:30
It keeps showing items to buy. I bought the pro thinking it sounds familiar but I couldn’t find where I had purchased before. I was still being asked to purchase watermark removal. Etc. just not to keep on how app “works”. It’s not as smooth as it could be. Well after further investigating, it seems I also purchased remove watermark for 1.99 in 2018. So now I have that and the purchase of pro and it’s still acting like I need to purchase some of these items. Just frustrating. I’ve got the newest updates. Ive updated all my apps and IOS.
Scammed!
by Miltonalmeida on 2020/04/13 15:45
I purchased this add twice in 5 minutes and still could not get the adds removed neither use the full features. It’s just a few bucks and I will wait till I request the refund, but I should’ve known better than to purchase apps in the AppStore... NO CREDIBILITY!
Text always gets cut off when adding to photo
by LJOY817 on 2020/04/09 17:50
I tried to add “National GO Red Day” to a team work photo and every time I save the photo, the word “Day” part gets cut off from the pic. Not sure why this is happening, since the text is all within the photo frame. This has happened to several photos where Happy Birthday would get cut off when I try to add my own text. I love the app but hate that how this always glitches with the text feature. Another issue is that I purchased the full sticker package and can’t select the last option “friends and family”. I have the latest iPhone and surprised how I’m unable to select it.
Too many ads
by HPBookGeek on 2020/04/08 12:37
I couldn’t create anything bc every time I tried to “save” ( click the check) I would get an ad. Thst makes me 1) not able to use the app gor my intended purpose and 2) P*ss me off that I would never consider the ads being shown ( not good gor the advertisers) There was promise with what the app can do, but will be deleleting it.

My go-to photo editor
by Maryland RVer on 2020/03/30 12:13
I often download whatever is touted to be the latest and greatest app. But for photo editing, PICLAB is the one I always come back to for reliable results. It is intuitive to use which helps us non-techies!!😄 If a bug pops up after an update, the support staff gets it fixed in a reasonable amount of time which is important to me in apps I actually have paid to use. I really enjoy sharing my photos after cropping and creatively enhancing them to suit my whim—thanks PICLAB for giving such a good assortment of tools all in one place!

Please don’t purchase
by shaleliz on 2020/03/25 06:26
For some reason I thought it was a good idea to purchase this app. I used to use it for white borders which worked well. But recently tried using script on my photos. I tried 3 different time and it saved completely different than what I worked in in the app. Thought it was user error however after trying it three times... each time same unwanted result. Try another app this one isn’t worth it.
Update on my review from 1/12/2020
by Rate2k on 2020/03/16 07:08
I have YET to get an email back since OCTOBER. I have sent like 3 or 4 emails and none have been answered. However, My last review was replied to and they said the issues i had would be fixed with the next update. They have NOT. Still unable to use an app with the extensions i paid for. The shadow text does not work, the app keeps crashing which means i have to start over whatever project i was working on and when i do get it done the app cuts off HALF YOUR TEXT/picture once you press save. Please save your time, money and phone storage space. Whatever issues you will come across you wont ever get resolved.

No borders?
by :/ blargh on 2020/03/14 20:18
I haven’t had the option to use any of the borders, except color or mirror, so spent the $7 to get access to everything. I click on all the options and it’s just blank, nothing is there. I just updated the app; this is really disappointing as that used to be one of my favorite things in the app. Sad I had to spend $7 to find out that it’s the app itself and not because I don’t have access to it.
Good editor

Glitches
by Gmascookie on 2020/03/07 05:01
With the updates I have so many ads I can’t get anything done in a timely matter. It’s so frustrating. What I used to get for free is no longer free. On top of all that it’s so glitchy the text that is saved and added to the picture in my gallery doesn’t show up on the saved pic on my phone. Not impressed.
Disappointed
by SrQr on 2020/03/05 22:27
The app was working fine, till the latest update, once the entire editing is done, it directs you to ad page, even though it’s frustrating to watch ads, you watch it and once it’s over and you press the close button, the entire page turns black, leaving you wondering what have gone wrong
App crashes

No thanks to your upgrades!
by LynnVF on 2020/03/01 16:05
What a shame to change something and make it harder to manage - and then charge to do things you formerly allowed for free! And a note to your coders - on my iPhone X -it’s now impossible to use the “Family &amp; Friends” stickers that are at the very bottom of row. You can’t move down that far to get it to activate. So - I’ll be trying to revert back to an earlier version or find another App!
Junk!

What Happened Here???
by PeteG0429 on 2020/02/29 14:42
I touch the text to bring up editing features like the three bubbles for shadowing and it no longer shows the shadows of any color on any color font! You can’t put letters on same color backgrounds anymore and when you use this feature it saves the top left portion of the text only??? What happened to this app? I didn’t pay money to have all of the features unlocked only to be screwed in an update! And it’s not a hiccup because I deleted the app and reinstalled it - in the immortal words of Yukon Cornelius...NOTHIN’ Well, you said you fixed the shadow effect for the fonts, but no! This recent update did not fix the issue that is most frustrating to me. And for you to give a response to say the problem is fixed is very disingenuous. I hope people read this and don’t actually pay money to unlock features if they’re only going to be changed or messed up and developers can’t even figure out how to make a small fix. Especially when it used to work just fine! Very disappointed 😔
Get bad
by KaterPrii on 2020/02/29 02:03
Before was very good now the text go cut when you save it , Still the same I dont know why I update the app but still the same when you save it
Horrible.
by Rebe64 on 2020/02/17 19:58
There are so many add-ons to buy for anywhere between $3 to $7, there is a permanent watermark that you have to pay $7 to get rid of. Video adds that pop up before you can share the photo. And when I tried to share it with instagram it cut off the text of the photo. It’s was utter crap. And through all that it kept asking how I liked the app to please rate it. I am deleting it right now from my phone.

I love this app, but...
by shay_girl_shayy on 2020/02/09 09:51
I’ve been using PicLab for years now. I love their features and think the variety and number of stuff you get from the package deal is awesome. But I recently got a new phone (iPhone XR) and the different screen makes it so some things aren’t accessible, such as the “Family &amp; Friends” sticker folder. Additionally the ability to add shadows to things has just completely disappeared. I’m only giving two stars to bring this to their attention partly because I’m not sure where my mobile message to support went but also because I’m hoping that this is seen ASAP! Other than these minor glitches it’s pretty awesome, although the inability to have shadows does make it harder to complete a lot of projects involving pictures with text &amp;/or sticker overlay. Hoping a fix for these issues might already be in the works, and if not then I really hope they will be soon! The one sticker folder I can live without for the time being, but the shadows I can’t given the type of projects I use the app for. I don’t want to go anywhere else but I may have to in order to complete my projects 😔 I’m really bumming out because this app has been my best friend since 2013! I’ll definitely be revising my review once I know it’s on their radar!

Too many glitches
by smileykiley2626 on 2020/01/28 17:13
The whole reason I purchased this app was for the fonts but the drop shadow does not work, the font size increases once I try to save it and about a third of the text gets cut off in the saved picture (even when it looks fine in the editing stage) will be deleting this app and suggest you save your money.
Text gets cut off
by Allthemfanfics on 2020/01/25 23:05
When I add text to a photo, the text looks fine, but when I try to save it to my camera roll the text gets cut off. I’ve tried deleting and redownloading the app but nothing works. This has been happening for several weeks now :/

Session Token is Expired
by Beth_JustBeth on 2018/05/05 22:20
I’ve contacted support 3 times in the last few months about this. I have still received no feedback so I’m taking it here. I paid $6.99 to unlock all the extra stickers to edit my photos. Now, every time I go to use the stickers to edit my photo, none of them open and a message that states ‘session token is expired’ is displayed on my phone. I wish I could be given some information as to how to remedy this, as I’ve used this ap for years to edit my photos and always been pleased with it. However being ignored by the support team and not being given any help on how to use a service I PAID for leaves me no option but to rate this ap with 1 Star.
Needs work!! Badly
by evonbart on 2017/09/28 23:29
I’m giving it a 1 star a few reasons. I really couldn’t tell what all this app could do and so I paid the full price for everything. Once I did that the shop page acts as if I still needed to buy separate items and when I went to change to the main page it prompts me to watch a video to remove the watermark. Excuse me? I just paid $6.99 for that (EVERYTHING). Strike one. Ok so I import a pic to edit and add a basic filter to. Even tapping ORIGINAL which should restore the image to its original state destroyed the original imported image and smeared it with this weird foggy layer - it’s awful and makes filters unusable for me where other apps work just fine. Strike two. Next I tried the magazine layout because that could be useful for some things I might do. Each layout has a template with words across but I couldn’t figure out how to edit the default text so it says useless things like PICLAB and never in my life would I need your app name on any project I’m working on. Strike three. DONE. I’m not asking for a refund because of my own idiocy. Don’t make my mistake thinking buying it will make it more useful. These guys obviously never tested this before shipping it out or don’t care what customers think. Either way enjoy my $6.99 - you deserve this review

Paid for it twice still not working!
by Paragon5s on 2018/10/05 01:00
I was using an iPhone 5s when I got this app. I paid to unlock everything. When I upgraded to an iPhone 8 plus (using the same apple id) I redownloaded it and restored purchases but it didn’t work. I contacted apple support and they told me to contact developer. As adviced by apple support, I contacted developer and it took them forever to respond. I decided to just pay to unlock everything again and didn’t bother wasting time waiting for their response. 5 months after, the sticker pack won’t download. The borders that I previously downloaded one by one have to be redownloaded again. This is very disappointing.

One of the best Photo Editing Apps
by ParaParaParakeet on 2019/09/05 21:18
I got this app for free a few years ago and paid the extra $6.99 to unlock everything. It’s a bit expensive to unlock everything at first, but it’s my favorite app for editing photos because of how many stickers and filters they have to choose from, and because of how easy it is to restore purchases. My only complaint would be that they removed the FRIENDS sticker package from the updated app. I understand it may not be as trendy anymore or there could be copyright issues, but I really liked being able to slap Joey’s face and catchphrase on my photos.
Tries to double charge you
by W Irving on 2018/10/04 17:48
I had already purchased the expanded features and was attempting to modify a photograph. When I tried to remove the watermark, it took me to a screen requiring me to buy the features again. I could not recall how long ago I had purchased the features, and thinking maybe my purchase had expired, I agreed to buy the features. Luckily the Apple store indicated I had already purchased and asked if I wanted the features for free. I said “yes,” but when I went back to my picture, it wouldn’t let me finish but instead I was again taken to the purchase features window. I tried to close out and go back, neither of which did anything, and then hit the “redo” icon and it said my prior purchases were “restored.” Why would I need to restore something I have already purchased? What an incredible waste of time.
This is so good
by Cutie cat 7765 on 2017/09/28 00:38
If you are interested into some filters and fun customization things for your pictures then download this app! I’ve been using it for a little less than a year and I’m so addicted! I’m still learning how to do the cool filters but overall it’s a good app. It does have some in app purchases but it doesn’t pop up all of the time (unless if you are using a filter it might pop up) like some of the other picture apps I’ve tried. So if you don’t like it well... Everyone doesn’t need to like this app but it’s good for me
Issues with Text Box
by Actuary44 on 2020/09/23 22:51
I am having a very difficult time trying to add a text box to a collage. I would add one text box and be able to change the color of the text just fine, but when I add a second box, I am unable to change the font color or font style. Also when I finish editing a picture and save it to my phone, the result looks different from what I see as my final product. Text boxes not showing up or randomly placed on the picture not anywhere near where I wanted it. Long story short, there are a lot of bugs with this, and if someone can respond to this and fix the problem that would be appreciated. I paid for this app and it would be nice if it worked properly.

Great, But There's Just One Issue
by FenneKat on 2017/03/08 01:53
This app really is fantastic, I&#39;ve just got one problem: my purchases aren&#39;t restoring. I paid $7 for the full upgrade but later on I deleted the app, reinstalled it, and even though I logged in it&#39;s not working. I click the shop, get told that the restoration was successful, only to be redirected to the shop and thrown into an endless loop of this. Anyone else have this issue? I&#39;m gonna delete and re-download to see if that helps. Other than that, it rocks! 5/5 stars for sure.
Very glitchy
by Dacagle on 2018/07/19 18:54
I have had this app several months. I am unimpressed with its functionality. Problems have not been corrected with updates. Constantly freezes and certain functions will stop working mid use, requiring a reboot of the app. (Inability to change the color of the font is the one I run into most often). This closes out anything you were working on without saving it, so you must start over. I use this for business so it actually interferes with my work and wastes valuable time. I paid for full access to all features, and while I like the options it has, it isn’t worth all the trouble. I will be purchasing a new app for photo editing. Disappointed to have wasted $6.99.
Perfect for my needs

I’ve used this app for a few years for everything from organizing photos for my recipes to sales on sites like Poshmark, Etsy and eBay, as well as personal photo editing. I would love to see a few new collage options, especially one allowing for six uniform pictures. Maybe for a future update? Thanks for an extremely useful app. I certainly feel like I have gotten my money’s worth (and then some) by using the upgraded package.
I will be moving to a different app.

Iv had this app for years &amp; have been using it for years but all of the bugs, issues &amp; advertisements have gotten worse slowly &amp; slowly &amp; Iv came to the conclusion that I can no longer stand it. I cannot save anymore photos from this app, every time I finish editing a photo &amp; try to go save it to camera roll.. an AD pops up &amp; when the AD is done my screen goes black &amp; stays that way till i go back to the home screen. I have a brand new phone &amp; tried reinstalling the app. Still does it everytime. Also, the watermarks got bigger &amp; takes up a 3rd of my photo. I dont wanna have pay just take a word off my photo. No one wants a watermark dude. I just wanna put a border on my photo &amp; save it okay?
Sub par
by J'etoile on 2020/05/28 19:01
I bought this because I was trying to do a text overlay with my 11 pro max and didn’t want the watermark. However, This app is very un-user friendly. If you save a photo with text on it, and then try to continue to edit it, even though the app hasn’t been closed and the image is still on the screen, it completely messes up the format and you basically have to start all over. The beauty tool- I’m unaware of what this does because it prompts me to open my gallery or search the web for an image. It’s just such a poorly designed app- there are wayyyy better free ones without the frustration this one comes with. Going to delete off my phone and chalk it up to a $6.99 loss. Hah!
Love this app!!
by A REAL Dog Lover ❤️🐶 on 2018/07/29 18:52
I love this app! My friend told me to take a few pictures of her, and so I did. Before she asked me to take pictures I had never used the app. I decided to try the app out after taking the pics, and they turned out AMAZING!! 😍😍 Even my friend said soon she’d might have to start “paying me” because of how much she enjoyed the pictures. I love using this app to edit my photos! It’s the best and my recommendation to any person who needs a photo editing app!
Practically Perfect but…
by aestheticBreath on 2018/09/02 01:07
I don’t really have any complaints with this app. However, there is a particular feature I wish was added. When it comes to choosing borders, I feel it would be a lot easier to increase or decrease the border size based on a number line, rather than having to expand or shrink the border size by only being able to guess what is a decent size. With a number value applied to change the border size, it makes making photos of the same size much easier.
Amazing.
by PandaMan4455 on 2018/01/26 12:10
I’ve personally been using this app for months. I’ve used it for a lot of things because it’s quick and easy. I bought the pass for everything and it’s just amazing. This app is great for simple things you need like some text here and there or some other things that you want to do without buying a whole app that doesn’t work in the end. In my opinion, this is highly recommended.
Even after purchase of full product (went pro)
by pattieaustin on 2020/04/13 18:30
It keeps showing items to buy. I bought the pro thinking it sounds familiar but I couldn’t find where I had purchased before. I was still being asked to purchase watermark removal. Etc. just not to keep on how app “works”. It’s not as smooth as it could be. Well after further investigating, it seems I also purchased remove watermark for 1.99 in 2018. So now I have that and the purchase of pro and it’s still acting like I need to purchase some of these items. Just frustrating. I’ve got the newest updates. Ive updated all my apps and IOS.
Fun app but most of it is for sale
by Dorislt on 2018/12/29 08:10
I enjoyed editing my picture but there aren’t as many options as many other apps that I use for photo editing. It didn’t take long to find out that much of what I wanted had to be purchased. There would be one and sometimes two stickers or sayings that I would have liked to use, but they were only available for purchase of a whole set. And I couldn’t find out if I could color the stickers so they weren’t all white, which doesn’t do much if your background is white or light.
Does Not Work Correctly
by SMR607 on 2018/10/27 16:39
I have been using this App for about 2 yrs. At first it worked great. Since the latest update I can’t see the stickers :( I have had to purchase the stickers 3 times and still can’t see them in the app. The text edit tools freezes and doesn’t let me go back to edit color ... Why is it so bad? I wish I had the old App. I’m deleting it and getting something else.
Edit/web search doesn’t work
by annlw582 on 2018/08/29 18:16
I’ve tried to contact support on this app twice over their edit/web search feature and they never answer. Their web search clip art feature no longer works. It hasn’t worked for over a week and no sign of it working. This was my favorite part of this app. Adding clip art. Very disappointed.
Half and half
by shelby82393 on 2018/08/26 15:56
Sometimes the app works like it should, frequently, though... it falls short. When adding text, it typically works well for the first set. If you want to change the color, shadowing, etc. it normally works well! If you add another set of text it 9/10 times will not allow you to change the color of the text, adjust shadowing, etc. Then if you happen to click the first set of text, it typically kicks that color back to white with no way to adjust it back. Hence needing to close the app and start over. Extremely inconvenient!
It is so close to greatness
by Unimpressed_Consumer on 2020/04/27 00:07
This app just isn’t capable of much. The filters are cool, and the tools are alright, but your just too limited. The text option is broken, totally ruining your photo if you add too much. The ads are unbearable unless you purchase free mode, with a pop up for PicLab pro IN YOUR WORK SPACE. For what it’s worth, they never advertised themselves to be anything more than a way to make cool photos and add headings, but I would have liked it if it could just do more. Not new tools, but just less broken.
Can’t change font color any longer
by Scrabblevigilante on 2019/10/10 01:35
I have reached out to support who keep telling me what I already know. However, when I click on the color wheel, nothing happens. Frustrating and will have to find another app to make album cover art. Used to love this app, but it’s useless if I can not change font colors.
Almost perfect
by Nacho Mendez on 2019/10/15 00:49
It used to worked perfectly for me, it has limitations obviously is not an editing software but it works for me, my only issue with it is that when I try to arrange things like pull something forward or something back it works in the app but when the image is saved the items appear in the order they were placed. If this was fixed I would give it 5 stars.
Not Great So Far, First Timer Here
by colbyjones on 2020/09/13 02:45
I just downloaded this to spice up my instagram photos. After my second text box, the next few I tried kept jumping into the middle of nowhere (not in the picture frame) and I couldn’t move them. I paid for the premium version thinking that you could only have so many text boxes on one photo and that may have been why it was glitching. I had to re-do this photo twice because the app unexpectedly closed down. I’m hoping this turns around or I will be reaching out for a refund.
Love it but one problem
by Scorbus4ever on 2017/08/09 19:00
I absolutely LOVE this app! I use it to create cute pictures to promote animals at my local shelter. I upgraded to the full version because it&#39;s totally worth it, but you can definitely get plenty done with the free version. The only problem is that for about a year I haven&#39;t been able to use the backgrounds. I can use the single color ones but none of the others. Please fix this!
PicLab was the best picture app ever
by Bdubsworld on 2017/09/23 21:37
I am applying for sponcership for my truck and I want professional pictures and I only get one shot so as many as I can add in a single photo can be a huge advantage. I&#39;ve been trying to remove the water mark considering I&#39;ve purchased the full unlock. I haven&#39;t used it in awhile but the app is acting like I&#39;ve paid nothing tried restore app purchases, tried app support (it&#39;s a useless tab on the website. I&#39;ve tried every way to contact support and there&#39;s no such thing. Kinda funny like they are forcing people to buy they&#39;re in app purchase again....
It’s gone downhill
by Sidlova.18 on 2020/07/23 13:20
I’ve had this app since like 2014 or something. With every new phone I downloaded it again and again. But recently, it’s just stopped working. I edit my photo and go to save it and an ad pops up, I exit out of the ad, then it goes to a black screen and I have to close the app. I’ve tried 5-6 times and it’s still doing it. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it twice and it’s STILL doing it. This app used to be my go-to but now I’m trying to find a replacement but none are as good as this app USED to be. I miss the old app I have no idea what happened. It’s just so bad.
Edits Don’t Show Up When Saved to Gallery
by itskarlsx on 2019/12/06 05:48
I have been using this app forever and I have never experienced a problem until now. I edit a picture and usually the words I’ve written on the picture have disappeared or have been cut off once I save to gallery. I love this app but it is not serving items purpose of the edit doesn’t hold pass the process of saving to your camera roll.
Great!
by Chasers mommy on 2018/09/22 04:09
I love this app! It is my favorite one to use for monthly updates of my kids! There’s always plenty of options for me to express my creativity and each milestone of my children’s lives! I would recommend it over any other photo design app!! Love all of the stickers and can’t wait to see what new ones are added!
Quick switch it back! This new app is horrible 😢😢😡😡
by dj12568 on 2018/08/21 17:59
Wow, what were you thinking 🤔 when you updated this app? This use to be one of my favorite apps, &amp; now I am about to delete it. As my Grandpa use to say, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. Your newest update took something that was good &amp; turned it into something that is less user friendly, and no longer worth having.
Multiple times purchased
by JC Heart Designs on 2018/12/23 07:06
Not only have I purchased this app and the other pic editor app 3 times now, there are a lot of bugs. I cannot download the various borders, shapes, and countless other things, nor can I seem to be able to contact support. It keeps telling me “purchases restored.” Not happy with this app.
Love it but needs an 'undo' button.
by jesuisxmoi on 2018/09/13 18:03
When you use the stickers it&#39;s very easy to accidentally delete it when you try to shrink the stickers very small. I must have accidentally deleted an edited sticker about 15 times. It&#39;s annoying and there&#39;s no way (that I know of... correct me if I&#39;m wrong) to undo a sudden change. It&#39;s really frustrating. But other than that I love it.

by Chelsfield on 2017/05/02 19:46
I have used this app for a while but after today I will be deleting it. I was editing a picture and it asked me if I wanted to remove the watermark one time by watching a video. I selected yes. I then got a pop up box that said &#34;video can not be loaded&#34; and immediately after a pop up box that said &#34;congratulations your purchase for $6.99 was successful&#34; (the amount to remove watermarks permanently). I did not select to purchase and did not authorize it. Apple was extremely helpful in removing the charge, however I no longer trust this app.
Used to love it but...
by Wolfegrrl on 2020/06/03 21:31
It still edits pictures fine but if I save it to my phone and then go to post in on Instagram it either shuts down ig or posts as a black square. The entire point of this app for me is to post on Instagram. Why aren’t they compatible anymore? Update 6/3: I can’t use it for anything now! If I try to use it on any app, even after saving the photo to my phone first, when I try to share it to ANYTHING it glitches out and closes whatever I had open. Please fix this. I didn’t pay money to not be able to use this app.
Frustrating...
by RevRedDawg73 on 2019/05/06 02:12
I hate when profits overshadow customer care. I used to use this for fun items randomly and did not mind paying for the extra stuff. I could create a pic and save it or share it for free but with the updates my friends can no longer see the photos without downloading the app and I cannot save the photos to my library anymore. It’s pretty much useless to me now. I would have to pay for the free version to be able to use it. Don’t download the free app unless you’re willing to upgrade to the purchased version.
Breaking
by Hippie Krys on 2020/01/06 02:31
I love PicLab and have used it for years but recently parts of it legit won’t work. Glitches. It shuts down randomly. Part of the pic doesn’t save. Words are missing. It’s so weird. I have deleted and reinstalled it and the same issues are happening. Also updated my phone. Still having issues. Can’t seem to get ahold of anyone to tell this to... so posting this review. If they can fix the issues, it’s a great app.
Sweet layouts but fails to save
by brandacelynn on 2019/01/28 06:55
It&#39;s got all these cute stickers and text options, and I love the collage templates. But every time I go to try to save a collage the app fails and all my hard work is for nothing. Never saves the collages and the app fails before your done. Not thrilled and looking for something that doesn&#39;t fail.

by MoMbONbON on 2019/11/06 19:05
I’ve used this App for at least a couple of years now and enjoy it a lot (5 stars “a lot”). I use it for personal pics mostly, a few work ones for social media too. Stay up on updates to keep things working the way you get used to. I use it on an iPhone7, fyi
Can't Message Developer
by Transplant 2017 on 2019/07/26 07:31
I am having a small problem with the app. I cannot access the Friends &amp; Family stickers because the button is too low on the screen. I was looking for a way to contact the developer regarding this issue, but there doesn&#39;t seem to be a way. I hope this gets fixed. I would rate higher if it weren&#39;t for these two issues.
Overall excellent, but recently a problem
by Elijah Tucker icloud on 2018/06/19 05:43
I have made many posters and other works with this app - it&#39;s great. However, recently I haven&#39;t been able to change don&#39;t colors more than once in a project. This is a problem. Any fixes out there?
Ummm I like it but ....
by Nightlock343 on 2020/01/02 09:01
Why can’t all the text added to your creation be there. I have to take screen shots of the product or else I will lose it. That is why I am 3 stars and also I bought the $6.99 features but am a bit upset about the text not all being there when you check your save pic in your photos and noticing your text is not all there. Please fix it.
Bugs
by southerngirl18 on 2017/12/11 14:03
I love this app &amp; have used for a few years! But after the update- I can now only do font color if it the first thing I touch after starting text. If I write something first- then I can not change the color! I have to close the app completely &amp; start over if I want my color to be different. What a huge pain! I use this every day. I paid for most of the upgrades- but now it is not friendly to use! Please fix this!!
Do Not Download
by Kreekside on 2019/07/08 06:57
I just wanted to check out the app to see how it worked as a picture editing app and I will warn people not to download this app. When I went to go try it out I immediately was spammed with requests to purchase “ad free access” and when I tried to click out of app using the home button it took it as me purchasing it! I’m pretty angry with this feature. I feel like the company did this intentionally to get extra money. I will not be using this app and I suggest that you don’t either.
Please update again
by Larri<3 on 2020/05/31 14:34
I had had this app for YEARS. Its literally the best photo word/sticker editor out there. I love it... except the new update!! Ugh its buggy from hell. My export’s wording is always messed up (half there, makes it tiny and in the top corner, ect). The stickers are working but they too sometimes are half there like they were erased! I paid for this app, and the extras and love it... except now its buggy 😕 please fix and I will leave my better review!
