photo compress - Shrink Pics
Description
Simply shrink pictures to save disk space. Download now for free! *Please note the information at the end. Your storage is almost full or you want to reduce the size of photos to send it with Whatsapp, iMessage, or post it on Facebook or Instagram? This app will solve your problem. Overview: - Compress single pictures, multiple pictures or entire albums to save storage - Customize strength of JPG compression - Customize reduction of the image size (optional) - Compression of images also possible without resizing - Preview to check image quality - Preview of disk space before and after compression - Simple & intuitiv - If you like, the app can also delete the original photos for you (requires at least iOS 8) so that only the compressed ones will be kept. Please note that deleted photos may still appear in the album "Recently Deleted". Delete them as well to save disk space. Download now for free and save storage on your device! *IMPORTANT WHEN DELETING PHOTOS: Please note: iOS will let compressed photos appear both in the album you specified as well as in the "Camera Roll". I.e. when deleting the new compressed photos in the "Camera Roll" the photos will also be deleted from the other album. Please note: 1) The app will only compress photos in JPEG format. Screenshots in PNG or other formats like GIF cannot be compressed. 2) If you have many photos on your device it may take up to one minute until the pictures will be shown in the app. So if you have chosen the album from which you want to compress images and you don't see anything please be patient. It just may take a few seconds until they load. 3) Don't select too many photos at once.
Trial then $$$$
by GooberBPeanut on 2019/12/26 06:27
Only lets you do 50 then wants you to pay, otherwise it is ok.
Doesn’t work with iCloud Photos
by samleegray on 2019/12/11 19:19
If you select a photo that isn’t already downloaded to your device locally, it just locks up. Had to go to the Photos app first, make sure it was downloaded, and then it worked as expected. Big bummer considering the app has the ability to trigger the download, show it’s status as downloading, then continue onto compression. If you fix that, 5 stars. App does what it says it will do.
Why remove the “SELECT ALL” feature
by Need higher resolution on 2019/12/01 13:36
Why have an upgrade that removes a very useful feature of “select all” ?? That’s a downgrade!
Subpar UI
by Leo Gasga on 2019/11/21 13:07
Wouldn’t mind paying for the full version, if the UI was at least half decent.
Didn’t work

Does not work / broken
by ModestlyHungryCaterpillar on 2019/10/20 13:24
Does not work. Totally broken. Pictures in exported album don't show up after clicking finish. Fix your app!!
Save your money
by x-user100 on 2019/09/24 22:03
I paid to eliminate the very annoying ads, but some still appeared. I also paid to compress more pictures than 10. Each time it just stopped compressing at random spots. Save your money and time.
Terrible App doesn’t work

Can’t get App Support link to work
by randyw57 on 2019/06/26 14:54
I can’t get the App Support link to work in the App Store. Here is my problem: I have compressed a photo. Now I want to insert that photo into an e-mail in Outlook for iOS. However, when I go to that album and try to Select that image, nothing seems to happen. Nothing gets inserted. Select works on all my other albums.
Looks free, but you must pay to do most anything
by NotScrewingMe on 2019/06/25 14:16
The app looks to be free; however, it will only let you downsize a photo for no charge if it is one of the 50 most recent photos in your iPad. If a photo you want to reduce is not one of the 50 you have to pay $5.00. So I deleted this app.
Fake!

Has no reason to exist in its current state.
by thesungod on 2019/04/25 07:06
Takes a function that should be included by default in iOS, removes the use cases where it is most needed( PNG files), and then has the audacity to bombard you with advertisements.

Reduced file no where to be found...
by Drew1970"$&@*^%!" on 2019/04/12 15:09
Reduced five images after downloading app. Then went to send two images to a friend, only to find that I could not find one of the reduced images. Not impressed with this app.
Doesn’t even work
by Thisgameisverydumb on 2019/03/20 19:49
The app would say it completed the compression but the new image are no where to be found. Probably malware.

Incredibly slow to show photos / doesn’t actually work
by ArchDH81 on 2019/02/21 04:29
I tried multiple times to compress an image but when it said “finished” it did it actually export anything. Don’t waste your time.
JPG format reductions only - iPhone pictures not reduced in size

Bad app
Can’t save compressed file as JPEG
by BlaqNomad on 2019/01/29 12:22
It compressed okay but I have my iPad default to “most compatible” so when I take a photo, it’s in JPEG format. When I use the compress app, it turns the photo into the “High Efficiency” format....Ugh! Trying to get a tourist visa and the website only accepts JPEG...
This used to work really well

Excellent app
by jeff the fly guy on 2019/01/02 15:07
As an Android user it was great to find an app for my new iPhone in which I could reduce the file size of photos easily. I maintain several websites for my business and post a ton of photos so it’s important to get an app that can reduce them to a low KB size from the 1-3MB size of most photos. The result is a lot of still great looking photos that post easily and quickly and that load quickly/instantly when a potential client is viewing my website. Highly recommended for anyone needing to post a large number of photos without sacrificing image quality.
Doesn’t work
by lightwarrior101 on 2018/12/17 22:17
This is a lame app. After downloading it because it was recommended by Apple, it doesn’t list the photos in my photo album in order. The one I needed was the last one saved and it’s nowhere to be found on this app. So I choose another identical one, but then this app flags it and says that because it’s not in the first 50 photos, I’ll have to pay to upload it onto this app. THUMBS DOWN. I will now delete this app and find another alternative to reduce the file size of another picture without all this unnecessary jumping through hoops fanfare.

Does not show all the photos in the camera roll

by Kingslush on 2018/08/24 21:29
Would this app be worth 4.99$? Yea... if it even worked. It will prompt you to make a new file folder, i did, and then you resize your picture. The app will say it complete anddddd dadadaaa no picture will ever be sent to the new folder. The app is garbage. Dont waste your time or your $$
Worst Photo Compression App on the Market
by kdjfjs on 2018/07/15 20:32
So, after I compress the photos, to be 25% of the original file size, it still doesn’t change it. The file remains its original size when using on other applications and says that it is much smaller than it actually is on the app. I think this is just a dummy app to get money honestly because it doesn’t function nearly as it is supposed to
Useless
by Calorie hound on 2018/07/03 11:56
Even after first converting photos to recommended JPEG format, app does not work at all. Keep getting message “can’t access photo.” Worthless!!!
Don’t download
by garrison gilbert on 2018/04/27 21:35
Everything prompts for a payment upgrade. And it only access’s random photos. Not my most recent , just random. It’s like it only sees certain images in my folder. Junk !!

This app analyses “traffic” and shares it with third parties. Beware!
by Noisey Wren on 2018/01/16 12:53
This is nothing but an AD MACHIINE. Building revenues off of the data leached from logging app usage and god knows what else. They claim it’s to fix bugs; that’s funny, I usually submit bug reports manually to devs unless the app is ghosted by an automated logger. Im almost compelled to re-download this fraud of an app just so I can view exactly the shenanigans going on through Console. Guys, don’t be fooled by this BS. Use at your own risk. This isn’t an app for the good of the users, it’s for the revenue and data commerce.

Didn't work
by AlexisM42 on 2017/11/28 16:16
I downloaded the app on iOS 10 and it didn't work. I created a new album but it was named U instead of the name I chose. I selected the 7 most recent screen shots to compress but when the app finished working the folder was still empty. Sure showed me a lot of ads though. Added: The developer sent me a nice note pointing out that buried at the bottom of the description it mentions that this tool is only designed to work on jpeg photos and not PNG, which is the format the iPhone takes screen shots in. He suggested that I try compressing photos. Well, I downloaded this app specifically to compress screen shots; if I want to manipulate photos in more detail I upload them to my Mac. I simply have no use for this app as it was designed, and had already deleted it from my device. Still, I upgraded my rating from one star to two. Still no explanation for the album naming bug, after all.
Very useful app.
by La Pérouse1 on 2017/11/16 19:43
Great for reducing photo file size for inclusion in emails and texts.
Does not work with iPhone 8 Plus
by Mrs. N Horan on 2017/11/10 00:19
App worked great with my previous iPhone 6s. But after upgrading to iPhone 8 Plus the app is useless.
Fraud!
by Chowderhead72 on 2017/11/06 16:11
First I bought the app for $4.99 2 months ago and I still get endless ads which stall the app. App requires me to spend another $2.99 to go ad free... so at $8 in I still get ads and stalling. Now it doesn't even work with or without ads. So now I suppose I have to spend an hour on the phone with Apple to get my $8 back? Great work Apple!
Unable to Save to Album
by Gadget Guru on 2017/10/16 18:17
This app asked me if I wanted to create a new album to which to save the compressed photo. I did and I gave it a name. However, it doesn't save to that album. An error, "Access not possible" is shown. One star review and I'm deleting this app to find another one. I'll let everyone know which one I end up using.

Unreliable App with Terrible adds
by ScorchStorm on 2017/07/07 21:39
This app only works on about half of the photos I select. It also has almost constant and aggressive adds. It also hasn't been working for me, I can't tell a difference on the quality of compressed photos even at 1% image quality. Honestly I don't think it's been doing anything to reduce the image quality, at least on my phone. It also can only resize photos in jpeg photos, so definitely no screenshots. Don't download it, it's a waste of time.

Did Not Compress or Save. Bummer Ads Need 2nd Purchase to Disappear
by Looking for Carmen on 2016/12/22 19:49
I downloaded this, and paid the $4.whatever right away to access an older than 50 days photo. The photo said it compressed, and I selected to save it to my Dropbox. But it was nowhere to be found. The pictures loaded really slowly. I thought it was my phone, so I deleted over 600 photos that were already in my computer, hoping that would speed up the apps ability to access my pictures. It didn't. Today I tried compressing a new photo. It wouldn't even Preview, and could t tell me the estimated size. Additionally, it's a real bummer that after you spend the simple $4, you need to pay $2.99 extra to turn off the ads. Which are really aggressive, btw, not just ones that run along the bottom.

by ScorchStorm on 2017/07/07 21:39
This app only works on about half of the photos I select. It also has almost constant and aggressive adds. It also hasn't been working for me, I can't tell a difference on the quality of compressed photos even at 1% image quality. Honestly I don't think it's been doing anything to reduce the image quality, at least on my phone. It also can only resize photos in jpeg photos, so definitely no screenshots. Don't download it, it's a waste of time.
Did Not Compress or Save. Bummer Ads Need 2nd Purchase to Disappear
by Looking for Carmen on 2016/12/22 19:49
I downloaded this, and paid the $4.whatever right away to access an older than 50 days photo. The photo said it compressed, and I selected to save it to my Dropbox. But it was nowhere to be found. The pictures loaded really slowly. I thought it was my phone, so I deleted over 600 photos that were already in my computer, hoping that would speed up the apps ability to access my pictures. It didn't. Today I tried compressing a new photo. It wouldn't even Preview, and could t tell me the estimated size. Additionally, it's a real bummer that after you spend the simple $4, you need to pay $2.99 extra to turn off the ads. Which are really aggressive, btw, not just ones that run along the bottom.
Can’t get App Support link to work
by randyw57 on 2019/06/26 14:54
I can’t get the App Support link to work in the App Store. Here is my problem: I have compressed a photo. Now I want to insert that photo into an e-mail in Outlook for iOS. However, when I go to that album and try to Select that image, nothing seems to happen. Nothing gets inserted. Select works on all my other albums.
Worst Photo Compression App on the Market
by kdjfjs on 2018/07/15 20:32
So, after I compress the photos, to be 25% of the original file size, it still doesn’t change it. The file remains its original size when using on other applications and says that it is much smaller than it actually is on the app. I think this is just a dummy app to get money honestly because it doesn’t function nearly as it is supposed to

Can’t save compressed file as JPEG
by BlaqNomad on 2019/01/29 12:22
It compressed okay but I have my iPad default to “most compatible” so when I take a photo, it’s in JPEG format. When I use the compress app, it turns the photo into the “High Efficiency” format....Ugh! Trying to get a tourist visa and the website only accepts JPEG...
Fraud!
by Chowderhead72 on 2017/11/06 16:11
First I bought the app for $4.99 2 months ago and I still get endless ads which stall the app. App requires me to spend another $2.99 to go ad free... so at $8 in I still get ads and stalling. Now it doesn't even work with or without ads. So now I suppose I have to spend an hour on the phone with Apple to get my $8 back? Great work Apple!
Unable to Save to Album
by Gadget Guru on 2017/10/16 18:17
This app asked me if I wanted to create a new album to which to save the compressed photo. I did and I gave it a name. However, it doesn't save to that album. An error, "Access not possible" is shown. One star review and I'm deleting this app to find another one. I'll let everyone know which one I end up using.
Great app!
by baymuthafuka on 2017/03/18 22:43
I'm a Luddite and this app makes me look like a genius. Easy to use and it works. Oh yeah, pay the extra $3 and get rid of the adds.

Looks free, but you must pay to do most anything
by NotScrewingMe on 2019/06/25 14:16
The app looks to be free; however, it will only let you downsize a photo for no charge if it is one of the 50 most recent photos in your iPad. If a photo you want to reduce is not one of the 50 you have to pay $5.00. So I deleted this app.
Does not show all the photos in the camera roll
by D_or 2000 on 2018/10/20 21:54

by Kingslush on 2018/08/24 21:29
Would this app be worth 4.99$? Yea... if it even worked. It will prompt you to make a new file folder, i did, and then you resize your picture. The app will say it complete anddddd dadadaaa no picture will ever be sent to the new folder. The app is garbage. Dont waste your time or your $$
Heavily Resticted
by My ID: KmAVj6nFgi on 2016/10/31 03:39
I tried this app thinking I could quickly reduce the size of a photo in seconds. But, when I clicked on the desired photo it spouted out some "You need to select a photo from the recent 50 photos taken" nonsense and wanted me to pay $4.99 to use it! Waste of time.

Has no reason to exist in its current state.

Takes a function that should be included by default in iOS, removes the use cases where it is most needed( PNG files), and then has the audacity to bombard you with advertisements.

App will purposely shuffle your photos, then tell you you can only access the most recent 50 photos in camera roll otherwise you have to pay.
Don’t download
by garrison gilbert on 2018/04/27 21:35
Everything prompts for a payment upgrade. And it only access’s random photos. Not my most recent , just random. It’s like it only sees certain images in my folder. Junk !!

photo compress - Shrink Pics
Description
Simply shrink pictures to save disk space. Download now for free! *Please note the information at the end. Your storage is almost full or you want to reduce the size of photos to send it with Whatsapp, iMessage, or post it on Facebook or Instagram? This app will solve your problem. Overview: - Compress single pictures, multiple pictures or entire albums to save storage - Customize strength of JPG compression - Customize reduction of the image size (optional) - Compression of images also possible without resizing - Preview to check image quality - Preview of disk space before and after compression - Simple & intuitiv - If you like, the app can also delete the original photos for you (requires at least iOS 8) so that only the compressed ones will be kept. Please note that deleted photos may still appear in the album "Recently Deleted". Delete them as well to save disk space. Download now for free and save storage on your device! *IMPORTANT WHEN DELETING PHOTOS: Please note: iOS will let compressed photos appear both in the album you specified as well as in the "Camera Roll". I.e. when deleting the new compressed photos in the "Camera Roll" the photos will also be deleted from the other album. Please note: 1) The app will only compress photos in JPEG format. Screenshots in PNG or other formats like GIF cannot be compressed. 2) If you have many photos on your device it may take up to one minute until the pictures will be shown in the app. So if you have chosen the album from which you want to compress images and you don't see anything please be patient. It just may take a few seconds until they load. 3) Don't select too many photos at once.

Doesn’t work with iCloud Photos
by samleegray on 2019/12/11 19:19
If you select a photo that isn’t already downloaded to your device locally, it just locks up. Had to go to the Photos app first, make sure it was downloaded, and then it worked as expected. Big bummer considering the app has the ability to trigger the download, show it’s status as downloading, then continue onto compression. If you fix that, 5 stars. App does what it says it will do.
Why remove the “SELECT ALL” feature

by jeff the fly guy on 2019/01/02 15:07
As an Android user it was great to find an app for my new iPhone in which I could reduce the file size of photos easily. I maintain several websites for my business and post a ton of photos so it’s important to get an app that can reduce them to a low KB size from the 1-3MB size of most photos. The result is a lot of still great looking photos that post easily and quickly and that load quickly/instantly when a potential client is viewing my website. Highly recommended for anyone needing to post a large number of photos without sacrificing image quality.
Doesn’t work
by lightwarrior101 on 2018/12/17 22:17
This is a lame app. After downloading it because it was recommended by Apple, it doesn’t list the photos in my photo album in order. The one I needed was the last one saved and it’s nowhere to be found on this app. So I choose another identical one, but then this app flags it and says that because it’s not in the first 50 photos, I’ll have to pay to upload it onto this app. THUMBS DOWN. I will now delete this app and find another alternative to reduce the file size of another picture without all this unnecessary jumping through hoops fanfare.

by Noisey Wren on 2018/01/16 12:53
This is nothing but an AD MACHIINE. Building revenues off of the data leached from logging app usage and god knows what else. They claim it’s to fix bugs; that’s funny, I usually submit bug reports manually to devs unless the app is ghosted by an automated logger. Im almost compelled to re-download this fraud of an app just so I can view exactly the shenanigans going on through Console. Guys, don’t be fooled by this BS. Use at your own risk. This isn’t an app for the good of the users, it’s for the revenue and data commerce.

I downloaded the app on iOS 10 and it didn't work. I created a new album but it was named U instead of the name I chose. I selected the 7 most recent screen shots to compress but when the app finished working the folder was still empty. Sure showed me a lot of ads though. Added: The developer sent me a nice note pointing out that buried at the bottom of the description it mentions that this tool is only designed to work on jpeg photos and not PNG, which is the format the iPhone takes screen shots in. He suggested that I try compressing photos. Well, I downloaded this app specifically to compress screen shots; if I want to manipulate photos in more detail I upload them to my Mac. I simply have no use for this app as it was designed, and had already deleted it from my device. Still, I upgraded my rating from one star to two. Still no explanation for the album naming bug, after all.

Unreliable App with Terrible adds
by ScorchStorm on 2017/07/07 21:39
This app only works on about half of the photos I select. It also has almost constant and aggressive adds. It also hasn't been working for me, I can't tell a difference on the quality of compressed photos even at 1% image quality. Honestly I don't think it's been doing anything to reduce the image quality, at least on my phone. It also can only resize photos in jpeg photos, so definitely no screenshots. Don't download it, it's a waste of time.
Awesome

Inconvenient! Horrible! Not iPhone Friendly!
by Rockkrys on 2017/05/15 19:29
This application only resizes images that are jpeg formatted. Any option selected within the application one is prompted immediately to purchase the full version at $4.99. This is rude, and abrupt to the user's experience. One is only to use the most recent 50 pictures in one's photo library. The application looks at the dates to verify the recent 50 pictures validity. One can deviate from this inconvenience by taking a screenshot of the picture in question. I was not able to find any settings to edit my picture format on my iPhone 7 Plus. Thus, making the application appear, at the least, not iPhone 7 Plus friendly. I am not aware if changing the photo format is possible on the iPhone 7 Plus. It is horrible, that the application is not equipped with the ability to change the photo format. It's is an inconvenience, and possibly a feature they must only offer in the full version. It's in short a consumerist ploy to take people's money.

Did Not Compress or Save. Bummer Ads Need 2nd Purchase to Disappear
by Looking for Carmen on 2016/12/22 19:49
I downloaded this, and paid the $4.whatever right away to access an older than 50 days photo. The photo said it compressed, and I selected to save it to my Dropbox. But it was nowhere to be found. The pictures loaded really slowly. I thought it was my phone, so I deleted over 600 photos that were already in my computer, hoping that would speed up the apps ability to access my pictures. It didn't. Today I tried compressing a new photo. It wouldn't even Preview, and could t tell me the estimated size. Additionally, it's a real bummer that after you spend the simple $4, you need to pay $2.99 extra to turn off the ads. Which are really aggressive, btw, not just ones that run along the bottom.

Very good. . .two suggestions for improvement
by Smtfish on 2016/07/15 17:23
This app works very efficiently and I like that I can keep my originals. Two improvements would be to be able to shrink photos further (1024x768 or even 800x600) and also display final dimensions when moving the slider.

Downloaded this app to compress an iPad-taken photo to include with an online warranty claim submission form. Had the app downloaded, the photo compressed by 15%, and submitted to the manufacturer all within 2 mins. Incredibly simple to use, works as advertised and is free! Now that's a great app! Well done, developers! A+

by AlexisM42 on 2017/11/28 16:16
I downloaded the app on iOS 10 and it didn't work. I created a new album but it was named U instead of the name I chose. I selected the 7 most recent screen shots to compress but when the app finished working the folder was still empty. Sure showed me a lot of ads though. Added: The developer sent me a nice note pointing out that buried at the bottom of the description it mentions that this tool is only designed to work on jpeg photos and not PNG, which is the format the iPhone takes screen shots in. He suggested that I try compressing photos. Well, I downloaded this app specifically to compress screen shots; if I want to manipulate photos in more detail I upload them to my Mac. I simply have no use for this app as it was designed, and had already deleted it from my device. Still, I upgraded my rating from one star to two. Still no explanation for the album naming bug, after all.
Doesn’t work
by lightwarrior101 on 2018/12/17 22:17
This is a lame app. After downloading it because it was recommended by Apple, it doesn’t list the photos in my photo album in order. The one I needed was the last one saved and it’s nowhere to be found on this app. So I choose another identical one, but then this app flags it and says that because it’s not in the first 50 photos, I’ll have to pay to upload it onto this app. THUMBS DOWN. I will now delete this app and find another alternative to reduce the file size of another picture without all this unnecessary jumping through hoops fanfare.
Doesn’t work with iCloud Photos
by samleegray on 2019/12/11 19:19
If you select a photo that isn’t already downloaded to your device locally, it just locks up. Had to go to the Photos app first, make sure it was downloaded, and then it worked as expected. Big bummer considering the app has the ability to trigger the download, show it’s status as downloading, then continue onto compression. If you fix that, 5 stars. App does what it says it will do.
Exactly what I was looking for
by Levoqd on 2018/11/03 11:17
If you’re looking to reduce the size or the image quality this application make things quite easy. Do you have the option of either reducing the image quality or the image size. You’ll appreciate the options to select either or
This app analyses “traffic” and shares it with third parties. Beware!
by Noisey Wren on 2018/01/16 12:53
This is nothing but an AD MACHIINE. Building revenues off of the data leached from logging app usage and god knows what else. They claim it’s to fix bugs; that’s funny, I usually submit bug reports manually to devs unless the app is ghosted by an automated logger. Im almost compelled to re-download this fraud of an app just so I can view exactly the shenanigans going on through Console. Guys, don’t be fooled by this BS. Use at your own risk. This isn’t an app for the good of the users, it’s for the revenue and data commerce.

I can’t get the App Support link to work in the App Store. Here is my problem: I have compressed a photo. Now I want to insert that photo into an e-mail in Outlook for iOS. However, when I go to that album and try to Select that image, nothing seems to happen. Nothing gets inserted. Select works on all my other albums.
Worst Photo Compression App on the Market
by kdjfjs on 2018/07/15 20:32
So, after I compress the photos, to be 25% of the original file size, it still doesn’t change it. The file remains its original size when using on other applications and says that it is much smaller than it actually is on the app. I think this is just a dummy app to get money honestly because it doesn’t function nearly as it is supposed to

Can’t save compressed file as JPEG
by BlaqNomad on 2019/01/29 12:22
It compressed okay but I have my iPad default to “most compatible” so when I take a photo, it’s in JPEG format. When I use the compress app, it turns the photo into the “High Efficiency” format....Ugh! Trying to get a tourist visa and the website only accepts JPEG...
Fraud!
by Chowderhead72 on 2017/11/06 16:11
First I bought the app for $4.99 2 months ago and I still get endless ads which stall the app. App requires me to spend another $2.99 to go ad free... so at $8 in I still get ads and stalling. Now it doesn't even work with or without ads. So now I suppose I have to spend an hour on the phone with Apple to get my $8 back? Great work Apple!
Unable to Save to Album
by Gadget Guru on 2017/10/16 18:17
This app asked me if I wanted to create a new album to which to save the compressed photo. I did and I gave it a name. However, it doesn't save to that album. An error, "Access not possible" is shown. One star review and I'm deleting this app to find another one. I'll let everyone know which one I end up using.

Looks free, but you must pay to do most anything
by NotScrewingMe on 2019/06/25 14:16
The app looks to be free; however, it will only let you downsize a photo for no charge if it is one of the 50 most recent photos in your iPad. If a photo you want to reduce is not one of the 50 you have to pay $5.00. So I deleted this app.
Does not show all the photos in the camera roll

Would this app be worth 4.99$? Yea... if it even worked. It will prompt you to make a new file folder, i did, and then you resize your picture. The app will say it complete anddddd dadadaaa no picture will ever be sent to the new folder. The app is garbage. Dont waste your time or your $$

Takes a function that should be included by default in iOS, removes the use cases where it is most needed( PNG files), and then has the audacity to bombard you with advertisements.
