Once you pay app becomes unusable
by TATLZ on 2021/05/28 22:54
I bought this app a while ago. Some of the features that I paid for were locked so I restored my purchase. Once I restored my purchase the app locked and wouldn’t allow me to use any of the function buttons at the top of the screen. So what this means is I can not load any pictures and therefore I can’t use the app at all. The only way to remedy this is to delete the app and reinstall it. When I delete and reinstall app I am back to unpaid app functionality.
Great way to sketch !

A fun app, but anything that ‘requires’ a 5-star rating to permit continued usage shows a real insecurity. I’m less inclined to give positives when they are demanded!

Paid version not working w/ XS
by mvasilakis on 2021/04/17 23:24
The app worked and I liked it so I paid the .99¢ to nix the ads. After paying the buttons on the top bar don’t respond. Since I see very high reviews I’m assuming that it works on other phones but it’s not working on the XS. When I delete the app and reinstall / run it with ads it seems to run ok. No bueno. I paid so I don’t need to deal with the ads. Please fix. Thx.
Groovy
by Castogere on 2021/04/17 15:13
Used this app when it first came out, was simple then. Now with the addition of ads every 10 seconds, they force you to buy it just for functionality. My only complaint really.

Pretty good app but misleading
by imo💭 on 2018/09/13 22:55
I really liked this app the first two times I used it, but lost interest 2 days after downloading. 4 filters are almost identical, 2 are identical, locked filters, 4-5 that aren't sketch just oddly blurred and Not in an artsy way. So, there are only 3 filters I would use, nothing spectacular or even a Wow factor. Not the app for my needs. I'm giving it 4 stars because I had a notification saying "my trial" period is over so give a rating or your unable to save anything from the app. But also want to say that some people may have fun with the app..and that's just it, a fun thing. It's not going to turn your photos into art
Incredible Transformations...
by HeyyyBarKeep on 2018/07/06 19:31
...from everyday photos to displayable art. No, you may not want to use it for every photo, but for certainly for the ones you want to designate as special, to display or to share. For those once-in-a-lifetime, family-together photos and important events such as weddings and graduations; essential for remembrances and beloved memorials. Pet pictures are a must as well. Stroll down memory lane with sketches of the home where you grew up, or where you attended school. Well-suited for uniform photos (sports, band, military). Makes great cover art for the popular personal photo books, and tasteful additions to complement conventional photos. Or simply do an entire photo book of sketchings (say, for each child or grandchild). When presented as a gift, it's sure to be treasured by new parents who will appreciate the "effort" to create a beautiful book of art of their most precious new family member. From fun to poignant, this is the one app you will want.
Old school boomer rating here.
by Alinore Loupgaru on 2020/09/27 14:12
The portraits shown as an example are easy and I’m not in the least bit interested in. However, I added a forest picture with cropped photos from a different app and this app filled out all the fine details from the textures of every tree person and animal. I will down load it to my art app and I have a foundation to start my project of erasing adding colors then project it on my canvas and air brush. I can print it for masking and I’ll have saved a weeks time probably more for fine detail. Now there’s all kinds of apps. What is amazing about this one is that I don’t have to take a semester or 2 to figure out how to use it. It’s straight forward. Photos are photos illustrations are illustrations and art is art. If you know the difference this is a great tool. Thank you Photo Sketch.
Closest to true sketching that I have found
by Dawhitty on 2017/06/11 13:42
I normally do not do app reviews, but this one is worth the effort, in my opinion. I like this app and the fact that it is more like a hand drawn picture than any I have found. There is plenty of "free" to use which allows you to get to know the program and learn to use it without having to upgrade. The only problem I have thus far is that when I scroll through the 22 styles to decide which one I want to use, I have to scroll back through all 22 to get back to number one and that is time consuming. There probably is a way to get back quicker, but I haven't figured it out yet. Good job on this app. Thank you!!
Nicely Done
by tiabia10 on 2018/08/27 21:14
I really like this, even though it seems kinda useless. The designs of my pictures are great and all, but I’m not gonna do this for every picture on my phone! This is a very cool I can pretend like I actually have a talent! Anyways I would only do this to my VERY FAVORITE pictures. Other than that it’s useless and takes up some space so you might want to delete it every now and then and redownload it. But as the title of this review says, nicely done!
Love the Colored Sketches Especially
by jtkbruning on 2018/05/23 01:35
Thought I should write a review, since I LOVE this App and saw some complaints. I use the colored sketches to make Graphic Novels of our vacations and excursions with our Autistic son. He loves being a Superhero in his own comic book!! There is no trouble saving if you know how to click the square with the upward arrow. You do have to look for additional options not provided on the first screen. And you do have the option to disable the notifications, like any app. In fact, you have to request the notifications on your first use to get them
Useful but frustrating
by D33344 on 2020/08/12 09:29
Been using this for years now, across multiple devices. It’s good at what it does... but has some frustrating quirks. First, if you pay to upgrade, it immediately LOSES the ability to save. I have to uninstall and then reinstall every time I use one of the “paid” filters. Secondly, I periodically get notifications that “new filters are available” and then somehow the update has no new filters. I seriously think they are just bot notifications that have no actual updates attached. At the end of the day, it’s still a useful app, but it doesn’t seem to be maintained or updated at all by the developer.
App No Longer Works With Latest Update
by RS Milwaukee on 2017/10/28 13:33
Great application but app no longer works with the latest update (Ver. 4.7). I should note that it did work until I purchased it to remove ads. App opens but won’t respond to any touch controls. Essentially, it froze. Tried restarting iPad (10.5” iPad Pro) and then deleted and re-installed app with no success. I’m confident this will be fixed with the next update. Awarded 5 stars because it was really a fine application when it worked.
Bug after upgrade
by Namchousa on 2017/12/03 22:26
I bought this a long time ago and have been enjoying this but after the most recent upgrade or iOS upgrade, I am not able to import and save photos from/to the phone. All the icons on the top of the screen (import/save/setting)stopped responding and not working any more. If I go back to the version with all the annoying ads, all functions start working again. I don’t know whose fault it is (apple or developer) but it really stinks. Because I have been enjoying this app, I wanted to give a 5star rating but I can only give 1 star until this problem has been resolved.
App not working
by danithew on 2020/07/22 16:37
I liked what this app did. I paid for it. The app stopped working. I’ve turned the phone on and off. Tried multiple times to get it to work. So far no luck. Now I’m seeing in reviews from as long as two years ago that other people experience the same problem I’ve been seeing - that the top row f buttons, including the button for importing photos, is frozen and won’t work. And this is the punishment a person gets for paying for the non-ad version? How is it possible that this has been a problem for years and nothing has been done about it?!?!
Photo Sketch is Amazing
by Sandi 49 yr old female on 2017/11/27 18:22
Easy to use and what a dramatic effect for photo’s especially for someone who cannot draw this is unbelievable way to get a sketch drawn of your favorite photo’s ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I know people pay hundreds of dollars to get a sketch of a photo and have it matted and framed with a small 4x6 of the photo in the bottom and now anyone can make this a DYI project to make gifts or just frame your precious memories in a whole new way !
Great App! But...
by Jim J in Cedar Rapids on 2017/11/15 17:29
This is an excellent app! I have used the free version for some tome with no issues. I finally tired of the adds and upgraded to the paid version this morning. Now it freezes the top row buttons. The rest of the app seems to work, but you can only do so much with the one default image. It is a5-star app, but the bug needs to get fixed. I docked it one star for that issue. Sprint iPhone 7+, IOS 11.1.1
Photo Sketch
by Sequim Retiree on 2017/12/03 07:32
Things have gotten off to a very bad start .... I'm hoping I can get this app going by rebooting my iPad. I started with a single photo and in the process of enhancing it when the app said I could unlock some features by paying 99 cents. So I did but the features didn't get unlocked. 😩 Worse yet, after force quitting and restarting the app, a number of the controls are now locked and I can no longer open a new image to enhance. Net: unless rebooting iOS gets this app going with my purchased enhancements, I will delete it and chalk it up as a bad experience.
Project Worthy
by Arlene Whiting on 2019/04/21 08:58
Figured I would try this app in a crunch for designs needed for celebrations. So far so good. I really don’t like giving reviews when I first start to use an app because you don’t get the full effect until you try something and the app doesn’t work. Have only been using the app for less than 30 minutes.
Very interesting effects that really look like sketching
by RHJ55 on 2020/10/28 19:51
This app is easy to use and looks like an old sketch. The drawback is trying to print the image. It appears there is a limit to how long one can use it without doing a review. I have had this since Monday, 3 days, so I was surprised to not be able to print the image from the app.
DO NOT upgrade!!
by Bladesmith2000 on 2019/08/07 13:49
The app worked fine, even with the highly annoying banner ads continuously popping up in the free version. As soon as I decided to get rid of the ads and purchase the full version it no longer worked. I can no longer upload any photos from my phone or take any photos with it. Clearly a flaw that they have not bothered to fix since I saw the same complaint from over a year ago. Don’t give them any of your money!
Upgrading makes the app stop working
by wunderlististerrible on 2021/01/24 15:21
I upgraded and when I tried to add a new photo to filter it wouldn’t allow me to. I had to delete and re-download the app to upload a new picture and when I restored my purchase to stop seeing an ad every time I wanted to save something, it did the same thing. I could no longer start on a new photo. It’d be ridiculous if you’re expected to pay $.99 for every use but even if that’s the case, there doesn’t appear to be any way to do that without deleting and downloading the app again.
Nice App!
by Alter Pic on 2017/12/30 17:51
This is a very nice app to easily alter photos into sketches and send them back to your photo album. The trial period is long enough to convince you that the App is worth keeping and deserves a positive review. If you always wished you could sketch faces or scenery but didn’t have that artistic flare, give yourself a break, try this App and release the artist inside of you.
Fun app!
by TreadingH2o on 2017/08/13 12:19
Only takes a few minutes to find yourself lost in time. Take some pics or load them from the camera and enjoy playing in the images. It's delightful when you realize how much fun you had being creative. Enjoy this app, share your creations with family and friends.
Do not use, or at least don’t pay for ad-free version
by Miz Luv on 2018/03/11 18:39
I’ve had the paid upgrade for several years. A few updates ago, it stopped working. Completely. The only way to use the app is uninstall, then reinstall, but do not restore the ad-free version. The developer has not fixed the bug and has not responded to complaints. Rip off. He takes your money, then makes more money off you every time you use the ad-supported version when you can’t access the upgrade you paid for.
Used to be my favorite
by pooberri on 2018/02/26 03:03
I am giving one star out of respect for what this app used to be. Since the update, this app is unusable. Unless you delete, reinstall, and DO NOT restore. Once you restore, the buttons along the top (camera, settings, and undo) no longer work. So, basically, you can see all of the cool features without actually using them. Unless you want to deal with ads. The app, with the ads, works fine. Until you restore your purchase. 😒 Definitely and awesome app when it works, though!
Bugs bugs bugs
by Da Rawg on 2018/03/03 00:23
Like many other people who have posted reviews I loved the app but when I paid to remove ads the top row of buttons no longer respond making this a useless app. As of today it still hasn’t been patched and this bug is effecting tons of users and there is no reply from the app developers. It is really frustrating that the app was fine until I actually gave them money. Than it died. If they fix that bug it’s a 5 star app until than it’s a waste of space.
Is either a scam or absurd incompetence.
by evilwayspr on 2019/02/06 20:38
When I used the free/full of ads version I could get access to my own photos. Not access to certain features...you have to pay .99$ so I did..... now it doesn’t give me access to my photos...I’ve checked every thing.. every setting. Every thing!! No luck. Uninstalled it. Free version works fine again as soon as I restore... same story stuck with my last pic and no access to my photos... just a garbage app. Don’t download don’t buy do yourself a favor!

The app works well but there is an add every time you start a function. I paid 99c to upgrade to the no add version, but then it stopped being able to load new photos. I would like the app a lot if the upgraded version actually worked.
Broken
by Jomalov on 2019/03/08 22:22
I paid for this almost immediately after trying it out. Had I rated this a couple days ago, I would have given it a much higher rating. Today, It opened to a photo of a girl touching her lips. I did not take this photo, and I cannot select any other photo. DO NOT PURCHASE UNTIL THIS IS FIXED.
Controls stopped working when I upgraded
by Gmatt63 on 2018/01/05 16:21
I just purchased the upgraded version and the top menu controls stopped working. I can’t access my photos, refresh, or access settings. This happened immediately after I upgraded. I tried turning the phone off and on again and deleting and reinstalling the program. Once I install the trial version, everything works, but once I restore the upgrade, the controls stop working. This is very disappointing. I’ve found the program very handy.
Updated to pro and no longer works
by nuggett76 on 2021/05/09 18:03
I have been using this for a while and it has always worked fine. Decided to update to pro, paid for the update, and now I can no longer import photos... Would love some help on this one. Would happily improve my rating once this works again
Don’t pay for ad-free, that’ll break it
by TDS1976 on 2018/01/24 13:05
Truly a fantastic app... but when I paid for the ad-free version it no longer worked. Top button bar became unresponsive (as others here have pointed out). Had to uninstall and reinstall as the free version with the ads and get a refund. Still happily using the app, but would love to get that glitch fixed!
Keep resetting
by joshy24 on 2017/11/19 00:26
When I had purchase to unlock other options I can’t get into my camera settings to select photos. It’s like the buttons had freeze up on me. I have to delete app then repurchase to upload new photo to work with. Hope they can resolve this issue other then that it’s a good app.
Once you pay app becomes unusable
by TATLZ on 2021/05/28 22:54
I bought this app a while ago. Some of the features that I paid for were locked so I restored my purchase. Once I restored my purchase the app locked and wouldn’t allow me to use any of the function buttons at the top of the screen. So what this means is I can not load any pictures and therefore I can’t use the app at all. The only way to remedy this is to delete the app and reinstall it. When I delete and reinstall app I am back to unpaid app functionality.
Needs an easy method of providing feedback to the developer
by bottomfish on 2019/09/23 15:36
This is a nice enough app. I upgraded it and it broke it. I cannot open images anymore. I have to delete the app and reinstall it for it to work again—and that is the free version. When the paid version is restored, it breaks again. What’s more is that there is not an obvious way to submit a bug. The dev’s info page is in Chinese.
Awesome App
by JazzTunes on 2017/12/01 20:53
I just started a course on sketching. This app has allowed me to create sketches from some of my favorite pictures. Very cool! UPDATE: What is not too cool is when I just loaded the paid version. Was happy to get rid of pop ups but now the top row of buttons does not work. No longer able to load from photo album. Huge letdown. Please make it awesome again! I’ll change my review back to a solid 5.
Great until purchased to remove ads
by Christmas16 on 2018/01/16 03:39
This app was great until I purchased it to remove the ads. It freezes and I’m unable to use any of the upper icons to add, change, or save photos. If I delete the app and reinstall it, it works again until I try and remove the ads. Very frustrating and from reading other reviews this is a problem that has been going on for several months with no fix.
Updated App and Lost access
by iwijwshdgd on 2018/11/16 03:05
I liked this, but after purchasing an item to unlock a filter, I lost access to the top icon actions (camera , settings, etc), but was able to get access back after erasing and reinstalling. Unfortunately though, after opting to 'Restore' the purchase, it locked me out again. Please help, as can't find a way to get support.
Great app
by Pineapple_Orc on 2018/02/11 04:59
This app is phenomenal but I’m now having trouble after I bought it. The top 3 options don’t work when I tap on them (the photo, redo and settings options). At first I thought it might be my phone but when I opened up other apps where there were things at the top in the same areas to tap, they worked. I have an iPhone 7. Anyway, I like the app a lot and hope this issue can be addressed and fixed soon. Thank you.
Good program but problems after upgrade
by shutterbuug on 2017/12/28 17:17
Works good, lots of fun. One problem: I paid to unlock it, which worked, until I upgraded my phone. After that it showed as back to free trial mode. I used the same Apple ID. Can’t find a place to contact them for help. Other than that, would be a five star review.
Why won't you fix this app!!!
by havecamerawilltravel on 2020/10/13 03:34
This could be a great app if you would just fix the top buttons. So many other people have complained of the same problem. You can't load pictures or do anything but adjust the default photo. People have paid for this app including myself and no one will fix it. Apple should not allow products to be sold in their store if they don't work or no longer work as promised. Wake up Apple. As if you haven't be sued enough.
What Just Happened?
by traciputnam on 2019/04/26 08:34
The app worked perfectly until I paid the $0.99 and "upgraded." Now, all I can do is select a texture. Not one of the other buttons will even respond. I have this on an iPad Pro, but just to double check, I also installed it on my XS Max - exact same problem. Disappointed. Gonna have to find a replacement app and request a refund.
Unethical
by Mh@42078 on 2019/01/05 13:26
Even though I paid for this app, I am continually bombarded with ads. Sometimes i am forced to watch an ad before accessing the app, other times my work flow gets interrupted because the app won’t render the image until the ad finishes. Very unethical and frustrating. The developers are greedy, despite charging full price for the app, they want to make extra cash through these annoying ads, disregarding their obligations to customers who bought the app. I am disgusted by their greed.
Don’t BUY the add-on! There’s a glitch with it!
by Ronthegreat1256 on 2018/07/05 19:10
All right so the app itself is straight up amazing! I have no actual complaints about it other than when I bought the add-on sketches it keeps glitching and I can’t use upload a new photo or go to the settings. In other words I can only use the bottom icons, but not the top icons whenever I use the $1.00 version opposed to the free version. No problems with the free version at all.
Good
by unicorns#L-O-V-e on 2019/11/25 02:32
I like it it's just that all you do is make a picture into a sketch and change color and texture. I am not trying to be rude or any thing I just thing the people you made this app did a good job but, you should consider making it more interesting but overall it's a good game you should really get it bye!🙂
Excellent product
by Tyman8 on 2019/10/19 10:54
I’ve used this app with excellent results for the last year or two. I use it to convert pictures that I use in other art projects. The quality is adjustable for the files so you can tune it as needed. A must have.
Cool app until you buy it
by ladyjewell on 2019/01/29 00:15
Then all the top area stuff stops working, probably because it then falls ‘under’ where the ads would be. Since that is the settings, the open new photo, and all the important parts of making the app useful to a buyer... Wasted the money unless someone reads this as you can’t use the app to get them feedback. Buyers beware!
I had to
by Brann72 on 2017/12/11 05:54
I would have give a good rating but now really only want to give 1 star but I have to give five or it won’t let me use any more so to the owner of the app your sorry as hell if that’s the only way you think you can get a 5 rating you sorry pos
It works great until you upgrade or restore purchases
by Brokenklown on 2017/11/15 16:45
Ok so if I don’t upgrade it. The app works but if I restore purchases the app stops working. Let me know when you get it fixed. Because this is without a doubt the best app of its kind. Well for what I need anyway.
Pretty sweet
by Jonny_bites on 2018/10/02 16:56
It’s a useful and creative app if you’re looking for an app to switch up your editing on the run. I use it for making some of the photos I take look a bit like drawings which always amazes people when they see it. 👍🏼
Frustrating
by Vkgphil on 2018/01/26 03:29
iPhone 6s+ running 11.1 App is great when it works. About every third or fourth use I cannot open any new photos but you can edit the sample pic that loads. I find deleting the app and reinstalling it works until you have to do it again and again and again. Until that irons out I cannot recommend this. EDIT works once then locks up. I delete reinstall and it works one time. Repeat. Great when it works that one time. Bad other wise. I’d give zero if I could
DO -NOT- BUY
by TextMaker2015 on 2019/01/13 16:43
The app seemed pretty good. Super-annoying ads. After I purchased it, THE ADS WENT AWAY BUT IT STOPPED WORKING. Looking through the reviews, this has been a problem for months that hasn't been fixed. Rebooted. Nope. Deleted and reloaded and the apps are back. There's another version asking for the purchase price - not wasting time or money on this developer again. I've never had to before, but I'm contacting Apple for a refund. If you lose money on this app, you should do the same!
Not working
by im an artist on 2018/11/16 10:00
I purchased the upgrade and then the touch response to change the picture and the settings button was unresponsive as well. Thought I liked it for a second when I first downloaded it then I upgraded and it quickly changed my mind about the app. Should the problem be resolved in the next coming update I will not hesitate to come back to the app if and only if it would be fixed completely. Best regards.

Paid version not working w/ XS
by mvasilakis on 2021/04/17 23:24
The app worked and I liked it so I paid the .99¢ to nix the ads. After paying the buttons on the top bar don’t respond. Since I see very high reviews I’m assuming that it works on other phones but it’s not working on the XS. When I delete the app and reinstall / run it with ads it seems to run ok. No bueno. I paid so I don’t need to deal with the ads. Please fix. Thx.
Groovy
by Castogere on 2021/04/17 15:13
Used this app when it first came out, was simple then. Now with the addition of ads every 10 seconds, they force you to buy it just for functionality. My only complaint really.

by imo💭 on 2018/09/13 22:55
I really liked this app the first two times I used it, but lost interest 2 days after downloading. 4 filters are almost identical, 2 are identical, locked filters, 4-5 that aren't sketch just oddly blurred and Not in an artsy way. So, there are only 3 filters I would use, nothing spectacular or even a Wow factor. Not the app for my needs. I'm giving it 4 stars because I had a notification saying "my trial" period is over so give a rating or your unable to save anything from the app. But also want to say that some people may have fun with the app..and that's just it, a fun thing. It's not going to turn your photos into art

...from everyday photos to displayable art. No, you may not want to use it for every photo, but for certainly for the ones you want to designate as special, to display or to share. For those once-in-a-lifetime, family-together photos and important events such as weddings and graduations; essential for remembrances and beloved memorials. Pet pictures are a must as well. Stroll down memory lane with sketches of the home where you grew up, or where you attended school. Well-suited for uniform photos (sports, band, military). Makes great cover art for the popular personal photo books, and tasteful additions to complement conventional photos. Or simply do an entire photo book of sketchings (say, for each child or grandchild). When presented as a gift, it's sure to be treasured by new parents who will appreciate the "effort" to create a beautiful book of art of their most precious new family member. From fun to poignant, this is the one app you will want.

The portraits shown as an example are easy and I’m not in the least bit interested in. However, I added a forest picture with cropped photos from a different app and this app filled out all the fine details from the textures of every tree person and animal. I will down load it to my art app and I have a foundation to start my project of erasing adding colors then project it on my canvas and air brush. I can print it for masking and I’ll have saved a weeks time probably more for fine detail. Now there’s all kinds of apps. What is amazing about this one is that I don’t have to take a semester or 2 to figure out how to use it. It’s straight forward. Photos are photos illustrations are illustrations and art is art. If you know the difference this is a great tool. Thank you Photo Sketch.
Closest to true sketching that I have found
by Dawhitty on 2017/06/11 13:42
I normally do not do app reviews, but this one is worth the effort, in my opinion. I like this app and the fact that it is more like a hand drawn picture than any I have found. There is plenty of "free" to use which allows you to get to know the program and learn to use it without having to upgrade. The only problem I have thus far is that when I scroll through the 22 styles to decide which one I want to use, I have to scroll back through all 22 to get back to number one and that is time consuming. There probably is a way to get back quicker, but I haven't figured it out yet. Good job on this app. Thank you!!
Nicely Done
by tiabia10 on 2018/08/27 21:14
I really like this, even though it seems kinda useless. The designs of my pictures are great and all, but I’m not gonna do this for every picture on my phone! This is a very cool I can pretend like I actually have a talent! Anyways I would only do this to my VERY FAVORITE pictures. Other than that it’s useless and takes up some space so you might want to delete it every now and then and redownload it. But as the title of this review says, nicely done!
Love the Colored Sketches Especially
by jtkbruning on 2018/05/23 01:35
Thought I should write a review, since I LOVE this App and saw some complaints. I use the colored sketches to make Graphic Novels of our vacations and excursions with our Autistic son. He loves being a Superhero in his own comic book!! There is no trouble saving if you know how to click the square with the upward arrow. You do have to look for additional options not provided on the first screen. And you do have the option to disable the notifications, like any app. In fact, you have to request the notifications on your first use to get them
Useful but frustrating
by D33344 on 2020/08/12 09:29
Been using this for years now, across multiple devices. It’s good at what it does... but has some frustrating quirks. First, if you pay to upgrade, it immediately LOSES the ability to save. I have to uninstall and then reinstall every time I use one of the “paid” filters. Secondly, I periodically get notifications that “new filters are available” and then somehow the update has no new filters. I seriously think they are just bot notifications that have no actual updates attached. At the end of the day, it’s still a useful app, but it doesn’t seem to be maintained or updated at all by the developer.
App No Longer Works With Latest Update
by RS Milwaukee on 2017/10/28 13:33
Great application but app no longer works with the latest update (Ver. 4.7). I should note that it did work until I purchased it to remove ads. App opens but won’t respond to any touch controls. Essentially, it froze. Tried restarting iPad (10.5” iPad Pro) and then deleted and re-installed app with no success. I’m confident this will be fixed with the next update. Awarded 5 stars because it was really a fine application when it worked.
Bug after upgrade
by Namchousa on 2017/12/03 22:26
I bought this a long time ago and have been enjoying this but after the most recent upgrade or iOS upgrade, I am not able to import and save photos from/to the phone. All the icons on the top of the screen (import/save/setting)stopped responding and not working any more. If I go back to the version with all the annoying ads, all functions start working again. I don’t know whose fault it is (apple or developer) but it really stinks. Because I have been enjoying this app, I wanted to give a 5star rating but I can only give 1 star until this problem has been resolved.
App not working
by danithew on 2020/07/22 16:37
I liked what this app did. I paid for it. The app stopped working. I’ve turned the phone on and off. Tried multiple times to get it to work. So far no luck. Now I’m seeing in reviews from as long as two years ago that other people experience the same problem I’ve been seeing - that the top row f buttons, including the button for importing photos, is frozen and won’t work. And this is the punishment a person gets for paying for the non-ad version? How is it possible that this has been a problem for years and nothing has been done about it?!?!
Photo Sketch is Amazing
by Sandi 49 yr old female on 2017/11/27 18:22
Easy to use and what a dramatic effect for photo’s especially for someone who cannot draw this is unbelievable way to get a sketch drawn of your favorite photo’s ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I know people pay hundreds of dollars to get a sketch of a photo and have it matted and framed with a small 4x6 of the photo in the bottom and now anyone can make this a DYI project to make gifts or just frame your precious memories in a whole new way !
Great App! But...
by Jim J in Cedar Rapids on 2017/11/15 17:29
This is an excellent app! I have used the free version for some tome with no issues. I finally tired of the adds and upgraded to the paid version this morning. Now it freezes the top row buttons. The rest of the app seems to work, but you can only do so much with the one default image. It is a5-star app, but the bug needs to get fixed. I docked it one star for that issue. Sprint iPhone 7+, IOS 11.1.1
Photo Sketch
by Sequim Retiree on 2017/12/03 07:32
Things have gotten off to a very bad start .... I'm hoping I can get this app going by rebooting my iPad. I started with a single photo and in the process of enhancing it when the app said I could unlock some features by paying 99 cents. So I did but the features didn't get unlocked. 😩 Worse yet, after force quitting and restarting the app, a number of the controls are now locked and I can no longer open a new image to enhance. Net: unless rebooting iOS gets this app going with my purchased enhancements, I will delete it and chalk it up as a bad experience.
Project Worthy
by Arlene Whiting on 2019/04/21 08:58
Figured I would try this app in a crunch for designs needed for celebrations. So far so good. I really don’t like giving reviews when I first start to use an app because you don’t get the full effect until you try something and the app doesn’t work. Have only been using the app for less than 30 minutes.
Very interesting effects that really look like sketching
by RHJ55 on 2020/10/28 19:51
This app is easy to use and looks like an old sketch. The drawback is trying to print the image. It appears there is a limit to how long one can use it without doing a review. I have had this since Monday, 3 days, so I was surprised to not be able to print the image from the app.
DO NOT upgrade!!
by Bladesmith2000 on 2019/08/07 13:49
The app worked fine, even with the highly annoying banner ads continuously popping up in the free version. As soon as I decided to get rid of the ads and purchase the full version it no longer worked. I can no longer upload any photos from my phone or take any photos with it. Clearly a flaw that they have not bothered to fix since I saw the same complaint from over a year ago. Don’t give them any of your money!
Upgrading makes the app stop working
by wunderlististerrible on 2021/01/24 15:21
I upgraded and when I tried to add a new photo to filter it wouldn’t allow me to. I had to delete and re-download the app to upload a new picture and when I restored my purchase to stop seeing an ad every time I wanted to save something, it did the same thing. I could no longer start on a new photo. It’d be ridiculous if you’re expected to pay $.99 for every use but even if that’s the case, there doesn’t appear to be any way to do that without deleting and downloading the app again.
Nice App!
by Alter Pic on 2017/12/30 17:51
This is a very nice app to easily alter photos into sketches and send them back to your photo album. The trial period is long enough to convince you that the App is worth keeping and deserves a positive review. If you always wished you could sketch faces or scenery but didn’t have that artistic flare, give yourself a break, try this App and release the artist inside of you.
Fun app!
by TreadingH2o on 2017/08/13 12:19
Only takes a few minutes to find yourself lost in time. Take some pics or load them from the camera and enjoy playing in the images. It's delightful when you realize how much fun you had being creative. Enjoy this app, share your creations with family and friends.
Do not use, or at least don’t pay for ad-free version
by Miz Luv on 2018/03/11 18:39
I’ve had the paid upgrade for several years. A few updates ago, it stopped working. Completely. The only way to use the app is uninstall, then reinstall, but do not restore the ad-free version. The developer has not fixed the bug and has not responded to complaints. Rip off. He takes your money, then makes more money off you every time you use the ad-supported version when you can’t access the upgrade you paid for.
Used to be my favorite
by pooberri on 2018/02/26 03:03
I am giving one star out of respect for what this app used to be. Since the update, this app is unusable. Unless you delete, reinstall, and DO NOT restore. Once you restore, the buttons along the top (camera, settings, and undo) no longer work. So, basically, you can see all of the cool features without actually using them. Unless you want to deal with ads. The app, with the ads, works fine. Until you restore your purchase. 😒 Definitely and awesome app when it works, though!
Bugs bugs bugs
by Da Rawg on 2018/03/03 00:23
Like many other people who have posted reviews I loved the app but when I paid to remove ads the top row of buttons no longer respond making this a useless app. As of today it still hasn’t been patched and this bug is effecting tons of users and there is no reply from the app developers. It is really frustrating that the app was fine until I actually gave them money. Than it died. If they fix that bug it’s a 5 star app until than it’s a waste of space.
Is either a scam or absurd incompetence.
by evilwayspr on 2019/02/06 20:38
When I used the free/full of ads version I could get access to my own photos. Not access to certain features...you have to pay .99$ so I did..... now it doesn’t give me access to my photos...I’ve checked every thing.. every setting. Every thing!! No luck. Uninstalled it. Free version works fine again as soon as I restore... same story stuck with my last pic and no access to my photos... just a garbage app. Don’t download don’t buy do yourself a favor!
Asked for 5⭐️ to unlock rest of the app
by Quiply on 2017/11/24 17:11
The app works well but there is an add every time you start a function. I paid 99c to upgrade to the no add version, but then it stopped being able to load new photos. I would like the app a lot if the upgraded version actually worked.
Broken
by Jomalov on 2019/03/08 22:22
I paid for this almost immediately after trying it out. Had I rated this a couple days ago, I would have given it a much higher rating. Today, It opened to a photo of a girl touching her lips. I did not take this photo, and I cannot select any other photo. DO NOT PURCHASE UNTIL THIS IS FIXED.
Controls stopped working when I upgraded
by Gmatt63 on 2018/01/05 16:21
I just purchased the upgraded version and the top menu controls stopped working. I can’t access my photos, refresh, or access settings. This happened immediately after I upgraded. I tried turning the phone off and on again and deleting and reinstalling the program. Once I install the trial version, everything works, but once I restore the upgrade, the controls stop working. This is very disappointing. I’ve found the program very handy.
Updated to pro and no longer works
by nuggett76 on 2021/05/09 18:03
I have been using this for a while and it has always worked fine. Decided to update to pro, paid for the update, and now I can no longer import photos... Would love some help on this one. Would happily improve my rating once this works again
Don’t pay for ad-free, that’ll break it
by TDS1976 on 2018/01/24 13:05
Truly a fantastic app... but when I paid for the ad-free version it no longer worked. Top button bar became unresponsive (as others here have pointed out). Had to uninstall and reinstall as the free version with the ads and get a refund. Still happily using the app, but would love to get that glitch fixed!
Keep resetting
by joshy24 on 2017/11/19 00:26
When I had purchase to unlock other options I can’t get into my camera settings to select photos. It’s like the buttons had freeze up on me. I have to delete app then repurchase to upload new photo to work with. Hope they can resolve this issue other then that it’s a good app.
Once you pay app becomes unusable
by TATLZ on 2021/05/28 22:54
I bought this app a while ago. Some of the features that I paid for were locked so I restored my purchase. Once I restored my purchase the app locked and wouldn’t allow me to use any of the function buttons at the top of the screen. So what this means is I can not load any pictures and therefore I can’t use the app at all. The only way to remedy this is to delete the app and reinstall it. When I delete and reinstall app I am back to unpaid app functionality.
Needs an easy method of providing feedback to the developer
by bottomfish on 2019/09/23 15:36
This is a nice enough app. I upgraded it and it broke it. I cannot open images anymore. I have to delete the app and reinstall it for it to work again—and that is the free version. When the paid version is restored, it breaks again. What’s more is that there is not an obvious way to submit a bug. The dev’s info page is in Chinese.
Awesome App
by JazzTunes on 2017/12/01 20:53
I just started a course on sketching. This app has allowed me to create sketches from some of my favorite pictures. Very cool! UPDATE: What is not too cool is when I just loaded the paid version. Was happy to get rid of pop ups but now the top row of buttons does not work. No longer able to load from photo album. Huge letdown. Please make it awesome again! I’ll change my review back to a solid 5.
Great until purchased to remove ads
by Christmas16 on 2018/01/16 03:39
This app was great until I purchased it to remove the ads. It freezes and I’m unable to use any of the upper icons to add, change, or save photos. If I delete the app and reinstall it, it works again until I try and remove the ads. Very frustrating and from reading other reviews this is a problem that has been going on for several months with no fix.
Updated App and Lost access
by iwijwshdgd on 2018/11/16 03:05
I liked this, but after purchasing an item to unlock a filter, I lost access to the top icon actions (camera , settings, etc), but was able to get access back after erasing and reinstalling. Unfortunately though, after opting to 'Restore' the purchase, it locked me out again. Please help, as can't find a way to get support.
Great app
by Pineapple_Orc on 2018/02/11 04:59
This app is phenomenal but I’m now having trouble after I bought it. The top 3 options don’t work when I tap on them (the photo, redo and settings options). At first I thought it might be my phone but when I opened up other apps where there were things at the top in the same areas to tap, they worked. I have an iPhone 7. Anyway, I like the app a lot and hope this issue can be addressed and fixed soon. Thank you.
Good program but problems after upgrade
by shutterbuug on 2017/12/28 17:17
Works good, lots of fun. One problem: I paid to unlock it, which worked, until I upgraded my phone. After that it showed as back to free trial mode. I used the same Apple ID. Can’t find a place to contact them for help. Other than that, would be a five star review.
Why won't you fix this app!!!
by havecamerawilltravel on 2020/10/13 03:34
This could be a great app if you would just fix the top buttons. So many other people have complained of the same problem. You can't load pictures or do anything but adjust the default photo. People have paid for this app including myself and no one will fix it. Apple should not allow products to be sold in their store if they don't work or no longer work as promised. Wake up Apple. As if you haven't be sued enough.
What Just Happened?
by traciputnam on 2019/04/26 08:34
The app worked perfectly until I paid the $0.99 and "upgraded." Now, all I can do is select a texture. Not one of the other buttons will even respond. I have this on an iPad Pro, but just to double check, I also installed it on my XS Max - exact same problem. Disappointed. Gonna have to find a replacement app and request a refund.
Unethical
by Mh@42078 on 2019/01/05 13:26
Even though I paid for this app, I am continually bombarded with ads. Sometimes i am forced to watch an ad before accessing the app, other times my work flow gets interrupted because the app won’t render the image until the ad finishes. Very unethical and frustrating. The developers are greedy, despite charging full price for the app, they want to make extra cash through these annoying ads, disregarding their obligations to customers who bought the app. I am disgusted by their greed.
Don’t BUY the add-on! There’s a glitch with it!
by Ronthegreat1256 on 2018/07/05 19:10
All right so the app itself is straight up amazing! I have no actual complaints about it other than when I bought the add-on sketches it keeps glitching and I can’t use upload a new photo or go to the settings. In other words I can only use the bottom icons, but not the top icons whenever I use the $1.00 version opposed to the free version. No problems with the free version at all.
Good
by unicorns#L-O-V-e on 2019/11/25 02:32
I like it it's just that all you do is make a picture into a sketch and change color and texture. I am not trying to be rude or any thing I just thing the people you made this app did a good job but, you should consider making it more interesting but overall it's a good game you should really get it bye!🙂
Excellent product
by Tyman8 on 2019/10/19 10:54
I’ve used this app with excellent results for the last year or two. I use it to convert pictures that I use in other art projects. The quality is adjustable for the files so you can tune it as needed. A must have.
Cool app until you buy it
by ladyjewell on 2019/01/29 00:15
Then all the top area stuff stops working, probably because it then falls ‘under’ where the ads would be. Since that is the settings, the open new photo, and all the important parts of making the app useful to a buyer... Wasted the money unless someone reads this as you can’t use the app to get them feedback. Buyers beware!
I had to
by Brann72 on 2017/12/11 05:54
I would have give a good rating but now really only want to give 1 star but I have to give five or it won’t let me use any more so to the owner of the app your sorry as hell if that’s the only way you think you can get a 5 rating you sorry pos
It works great until you upgrade or restore purchases
by Brokenklown on 2017/11/15 16:45
Ok so if I don’t upgrade it. The app works but if I restore purchases the app stops working. Let me know when you get it fixed. Because this is without a doubt the best app of its kind. Well for what I need anyway.
Pretty sweet
by Jonny_bites on 2018/10/02 16:56
It’s a useful and creative app if you’re looking for an app to switch up your editing on the run. I use it for making some of the photos I take look a bit like drawings which always amazes people when they see it. 👍🏼
Frustrating
by Vkgphil on 2018/01/26 03:29
iPhone 6s+ running 11.1 App is great when it works. About every third or fourth use I cannot open any new photos but you can edit the sample pic that loads. I find deleting the app and reinstalling it works until you have to do it again and again and again. Until that irons out I cannot recommend this. EDIT works once then locks up. I delete reinstall and it works one time. Repeat. Great when it works that one time. Bad other wise. I’d give zero if I could
DO -NOT- BUY
by TextMaker2015 on 2019/01/13 16:43
The app seemed pretty good. Super-annoying ads. After I purchased it, THE ADS WENT AWAY BUT IT STOPPED WORKING. Looking through the reviews, this has been a problem for months that hasn't been fixed. Rebooted. Nope. Deleted and reloaded and the apps are back. There's another version asking for the purchase price - not wasting time or money on this developer again. I've never had to before, but I'm contacting Apple for a refund. If you lose money on this app, you should do the same!
Not working
by im an artist on 2018/11/16 10:00
I purchased the upgrade and then the touch response to change the picture and the settings button was unresponsive as well. Thought I liked it for a second when I first downloaded it then I upgraded and it quickly changed my mind about the app. Should the problem be resolved in the next coming update I will not hesitate to come back to the app if and only if it would be fixed completely. Best regards.
