Glitch
by Amara Jane on 2019/12/04 16:34
I’m having a glitch where I can’t download filters onto polarr. Do you think you can look into it?
hate it
by lexiiii snyderrrr on 2019/12/01 20:42
i used to love using polarr but now i cant import any new filters at all. i try to but it does nothing. please fix this. :(
Thanks for everything

The best photo editing app !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I glad I only payed one month
by Duckie555 on 2019/11/25 07:36
I got it to export files to svg or close to it I saw another person posted in Facebook so I tried it for 3 day I am not getting jelp
2 Pros or 1?
by PhelineCat on 2019/11/24 17:42
Before I dive in again I wish apps were required to be clear on what in-app purchases were getting me and what evil subscriptions do. It’s an investment of time to figure out what’s different than what I have, what’s fluff, what maybe I’ve been looking for but if I can’t tell what the payment structure is I’m likely to not bother. Plus subscription costs … $2/mo v $1/mo makes a huge difference and you’re certain to get more than 2x the subscribers with half the cost. $10/annually floods you with them. Don’t be greedy. Look at the industry numbers. I did.
The Best Paid or Free Photo Editing App
by Sederick1 on 2019/11/24 16:40
Love taking pictures and editing them. This App is free and does a better job than the paid photo editing apps. I also have the desktop app for Mac. Awesome job developers
APP crashing with IOS13.3
by Tyjuuitedfhm on 2019/11/21 08:18
Apple did another update 13.3 I think? and now Polarr isn’t working. I LOVE THIS APP. I NEED IT TO WORK ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I must admit the app is superb..
by @Sigil on 2019/11/19 00:49
The app is fantastic. The UI is intuitive and aesthetically pleasing. There is extra value here, because you get access to the Mac App. I still believe that the "Pro" users or those who paid should of received a discounted membership or a free year. That said, I won't hate on such a beautiful and feature rich app. Update: The tutorials are great. The express version is more than adequate for casual photographers like me. I was upset that I was not “grandfathered” after the change to subscription model. However, what I would be missing is the additional filters.
Simple Enough even for an 80 year old

no watermark when editing
by ra829273 on 2019/11/18 12:39
the massive watermark in the middle is terrible and also the app is very glitchy and doesn’t save so i usually have to screenshot the picture in order to save it - please fix the glitches and get rid of the giant POLARR in the middle :/
Um...
by Deja4567 on 2019/11/17 22:20
the last update literally broke this app, and it was like right after I paid for this month too. I only see a blank gray screen now.
NEEDS new Update ASAP
by mebejessie on 2019/11/17 07:33
Photos keep disappearing while editing App keeps crashing Deleting a tool makes a duplicate This app is driving me nuts Too many bugs to count
Excellent software for iPhone!!
by Musa M Quazi on 2019/11/17 00:52
Love everything about this easy to use software!
Awesome!
by Maui Kid on 2019/11/16 23:16
11/16/19 - Update Still the best photo editor!!! 5 Stars! _________________ Took me some time to familiarize myself with the app, and now I’m finding its very worthy of 5 stars! I really like all the options and filter choices. My go to photo photo editing app for iOS!!
Extremely blurry photos now?
by TB-8121-2200 on 2019/11/16 08:32
Don’t know why but now it’s extremely blurry when I save my photos despite if I put it on low quality or the best?
Professional style
by LauraLovedy on 2019/11/15 14:55
These filters are amazing. They instantly transform photos into your vision. Love this app.
Used to love this app...
by awacks3 on 2019/11/14 04:52
Ive had this app for a LONG time and they recently took away the option to try the pro filters on the picture. they are all locked now and you cant even "demo" it :/ the filters should still be included in the 1 pro save a day bc some of us are broke college kids who cant afford the subscription (even if it is as little as it is😅)
Great features
by Guapo_0 on 2019/11/14 02:07
Lacks certain features
help
by BBlue1111 on 2019/11/12 19:04
it is so glitchy, i love the filters but it doesn’t work it says exported but then it’s never in the exported file i would love to use this app but it needs to be fixed
Good, but...
by LilYachtyFan12 on 2019/11/06 04:55
I would buy the full app if it was a one time purchase, but the subscription is way too expensive and complicated for me. A one time purchase would make me and a lot of other people buy the pro version.
Verification not working
by Carriebski on 2019/11/06 04:49
Is there some sort of trick to the verification code? I’m getting the email. I see the code. I type the code it. It says it is not valid. Another code is sent. I type THAT one in. It says it is not valid. More than a little frustrating... Help please?
Malísimo
by enid1824 on 2019/11/05 20:07
La aplicación no me funciona y mi teléfono es un iPhone XS Max. Lo he instalado varías veces y no funciona, me gustaría que arreglaran eso, a mi siempre me ha encantado ésta aplicación para mis fotos. Espero y puedan resolver el problema.
Beginners love
by BucksTrucks&Mud on 2019/11/04 02:48
I’m no photospheres but the app is easy to use and has unique options I love!
won't open photos
by phoebea2020 on 2019/11/04 01:52
Used to have the app and loved it. However, I needed to clear space so I deleted it. I needed to use it again and re-downloaded it with no problems, but when I went to use it, it wouldn't allow me to edit my photos. I would click on the photo I wanted to edit only to have it go to a dark screen for a moment before going back to my camera role. Please fix this
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
Yeah, no thanks
by Kinicks on 2019/11/03 05:06
I would love to try this app, however, it won’t let me edit any photos. I click the picture and the screen flashes and goes back to the gallery. I click to enlarge the picture and then hit edit, and poof back to the gallery. Not so good if it’s glitching right out the gate.
Hate Subscription B.S
by MGMourad on 2019/11/03 01:30
I used to love this app and I was willing to pay $12 to purchase the pro features right out. But since they switched to subscription based service like Adobe, I deleted it and downloaded darkroom instead which is great for me. Save your money and stop the greedy companies from getting greedier.
Why is this?
by FroadnRoller on 2019/11/02 13:05
Long time user... suddenly the picture disappears. Is there a vanishing effect or setting? Id live to get all that time back. Its the only app worth actually buying. Linking everything to Apple to make a purchase, id rather go to the dentist. I have a big project for my grandfather to do and time isn’t exactly plentiful.... And i need to reup on my subscription too. Pressure is on Polarr! Comp the subscription fix the disappearing act. My time, user time super valuable. No compensations for the lost amounts. Im calling it in now. Reparations. Not 1 problem for years, now its a game of chicken. Next platform update ad auto save. Thank you.🧸
My opinion
by Jeongmo on 2019/10/30 21:20
I love the app, I've been using it for like a month noe and I don't have any issues with it and by far it's one of my favorites in filters, the filters look really smooth and everything is perfect it has a nice setting to understand better the use of it, but in my opinion if the app had the option to add filters to gifs it would be amazing for real. Overall the app is a top five and I can bet everyone will live it.
Awesome App
by Jorlu.pinal on 2019/10/29 20:23
I enjoy so much editing my pictures with Polarr. I am not a professional photographer but I feel like one after I use Polarr.
Is polarr officially over?
by Fhdjdjdkkddkkdkdkd on 2019/10/29 18:06
The app is constantly crashing and doesn’t function the right way.. Rip.
Great app
by gggggttttaevkkxxcc on 2019/10/29 03:37
It is a nice app
It’s not that bad
by _tatumelise on 2019/10/28 22:50
From what I was expecting, it was a vsco kind of app that has a lot of bugs. And don’t get me wrong, I haven’t used it that long and am very likely not utilizing everything this app has to offer, but in my opinion, it is a very good app, for being free. And I can do anything I want without Pro, so it’s not really a necessity, but if you want it, go for it.
Very good
by kpopholic2007 on 2019/10/28 21:20
GOOD APP 👍👍👍
Use to be good
by taylorbrandi82 on 2019/10/28 03:13
I use to love this app. It was my favorite. But it’s absolutely ridiculous now! I can’t even open the app. If I manage to open it and I choose a photo the app will automatically close on me. To top it off, I have the pro subscription and yet none of my filters came back. What happened to them all? I use to use this all time but it looks like I’m going to have to stop. I’ve contacted the support team about it but the haven’t messaged me back. It’s been 3 days and I’m still waiting for them to send a message. I even sent an extra message and still haven’t gotten anything back. I have the premium version which is what makes this so upsetting. I expect an app that I have the premium version for to work, but it won’t and no one will get back to me about why or about what is happening. Please do an update and fix this app. *EDIT* : THE APP GOT FREAKING WORSE AFTER LATEST UPDATE! How is that even possible? Idk but y’all managed to do it.
Crashes
by Amllr205 on 2019/10/27 23:56
App does not work
Move of previously included of features to “Paid” has me worried.
by B5BAR on 2019/10/27 23:04
I was onboard and support the idea of devs making money for some of the features that I have not tapped into yet, however the move of some features that pulled me into Polar (Batch processing) now being subscription based, feels like a bait and switch tactic. This is hands down the best photo editing application on iOS, however I worry whenever devs move features “upscale” and charge more to keep key functionality unlocked. I subscribed to paid now (I took the bait devs), but what is stopping this dev team from making the features I use and need a “higher tier” subscription, at a higher price, without warning?
Crashing!
by editingchick101 on 2019/10/27 01:56
Please fix this glitch, the app keeps crashing!!
currently broken!!
by ItunesMeister on 2019/10/26 23:02
I love polarr usually but recently it will not continue past the photo selection frame. The photo will say ‘Exported’ but when then clicking ‘Done’ takes you back to the photo selection frame and there is nothing in the exported folder. Then, if you try clicking back it will give you a frozen gray screen. Not to mention, I’ve been getting many frozen title screens. PLEASE fix this.
Fix shapes
by GHEJDF on 2019/10/25 06:14
The shapes are bad I don’t know why their is a double
Great App, Amazing Customer Service
by Tedog123 on 2019/10/24 23:27
I have been using Polarr since late 2017 on my old Galaxy S8+ and had purchased all of the pro tools before the subscription system. After recently switching to iOS, I was really frustrated that I didn’t have them anymore and hadn’t made an account. After contacting Polarr customer support and explaining the issue I was asked to prove my purchase via Google Play receipts and over the course of just ~2 weeks I was granted a lifetime subscription to Polarr. Now onto the app. Seeing as Adobe Lightroom is Polarr’s main competitor I think it is fair to compare the two. UI: As of a recent update Polarr has crushed Lightroom in this aspect. Full theme customization, the pro workspace and the overall simplicity of the app make it a dream to use as opposed to the cluttered UI of Lightroom Functionality: I’m no expert photo editor, so rage this section with a pinch of salt. (Note that I have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription as well as Polarr Pro as stated above). The apps are nearly identical in terms of features, both containing the tools you would expect from a professional editor. I feel like Polarr may have more tools but it’s hard to tell. Conclusion: Should you get Polarr? Yes. Should you pay for a Polarr pro subscription? It depends. Not all of the features unlocked by a pro subscription are extremely necessary, not to mention that you get one export with pro tools every day. So unless you need to use masks multiple times a day I would say no. In addition, if you already have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, Lightroom is just as good. If you don’t have Creative Cloud, and are looking for pro features, I would recommend Polarr. Unless Photoshop is work the extra $5 per month for you, Polarr is a better app at a lower price (4.99/month vs 9.99/month).
Free app is a great starter kit for amateur photography
by dupid stog on 2019/10/24 10:05
If you are taking raw images especially! This app has helped me learn so much! Thanks!
Doesn’t let me
by madwhxeler on 2019/10/23 03:48
Whenever I want to add a filter it doesn’t let me
Bummer
by UpRocka on 2019/10/20 16:30
Lame... now Polarr charges for “batch export” when it used to be included in the free version? Everyone’s moving to these monthly payment structures. Do you guys even make money this way? I mean I fully get why you would opt for this vs a one time payment since you get to keep a more steady revenue coming in to help further develop the app... but who actually pays for these? Literally every app that demands a monthly fee to just use the core features I delete and I’ll wager to bet a good deal of other users are the same exact way. It’s a pointless exchange and really only serves the devs. I’d rather pay a slightly higher up front one time cost instead of being billed monthly for a simple feature add on. Really hope this business model dies off soon cuz it’s lame as fuuuuu.
Haze filter does nothing
by lajollaguy on 2019/10/20 14:56
Updated a couple of days ago to latest version. Suddenly the haze filter has stopped working. The percentage applied changes as the scrub up with your finger, but the image doesn’t, and no effect is saved. Happens with standalone as well as Photos extension. iPadOS 13
I love Polarr but...
by http_marie on 2019/10/18 19:49
It closes every time I open the app.
can’t add filter!!!
by M3RKGranDmaster on 2019/10/17 19:47
Every time I try to add a Filter from my Gallery it doesn’t add and it’s annoying as f**k! I should be able to add new filters!
amazing but very glitchy
by By Ali E. on 2019/10/17 02:04
i love the app and its effects sooo much, but it’s very slow and the app closes itself sometimes. i use my ipad for it, but it works fine on my phone. please update it so it’s not glitchy for ipads!
Good
by just a photo geek on 2019/10/16 08:44
The app keeps crashing while heavy use of the brush tool, its very irritating. One star less just for that. Otherwise a beautiful app. Please solve that!!
Why
by shinmjb on 2019/10/15 03:14
Great. Now it closes every time I open the app.

by lil.ian on 2019/10/12 12:43

Will not provide QR code

My phone is connected to the internet and polarr still will not provide any QR code
STILL Problematic After Latest Update
by HollyDay on 2019/10/09 19:43
This app is SUCH A MESS. After multiple updates, developers still didn't get it right! Icons jumping or overlapping over each other, so one has to close the app, lose all edits, and re-open app and start from scratch. Photos automatically downgraded in quality and colouring on opening. Filters no longer adjustable. Face Tools randomly auto-changing things in the wrong way. Tool adjustment bars going in the opposite direction of what you're pushing it towards. Photos saving in much lower resolution, despite setting it to "Best" setting. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I wish I'd never updated about 5 updates ago! A perfectly great app has turned into amateur rubbish. Bugs squashed? What a joke! What are you doing over there? With so many negative reviews, you have to know this is just really bad. Time to find a new app that actually works because this app has gone bye bye.
Great App-Awful Bugs
by amat3ur photographer on 2019/10/08 00:58
I love the variety and abundance of tools this app provides, which leads to me spending hours on a photo, but the really f$cking annoying part is the app tends to glitch or kick me out after being on it for a while, and hours of work put into a photo are erased.👎 please fix this. Very frustrating.
If it only would stop crashing. It makes me sad lol
by Crazymommy+5 on 2019/10/05 21:27
This is so far, my favorite editing app... almost. Long sigh. I do sports photography, I love it. This app does amazing edits. But just as soon as I think I’m done. It freezes and just zones out. Doesn’t close, it’s doesn’t do anything. Just goes blank. So, then I have to start allllll the way over, and pray it doesn’t crash again. Honestly, if it didn’t do that. I would rate it 5 stars, and subscribe for whatever. It would be amazing. It could use more text/font options. Those are a little lacking, and boring. I have shed a tear or three, because of the crashes. Debating on just getting rid of it. But I keep hoping it will be fixed. Please fix whatever is causing the freeze/crash. And I will subscribe for whatever amount you’re charging. And give it 5 stars.
Disappointing.
by http.tails on 2019/10/05 15:09
I used to love this app, I have so many custom filters that I use for editing. It’s extremely disappointing that I can’t use them anymore. Ever since the update the app doesn’t open the photo. I click on the app, The app opens, I click on the photo and it just lags and never loads. Please please please fix this soon.
Latest Update Crashes The App
by Hasnofaith on 2019/10/04 08:56
The app has seriously malfunctioned and does not operate properly. The buttons over react to touch. Adjustments are impossible.
I love this app, but
by Fix it gram on 2019/10/03 23:21
I love the app it’s my favorite editing app, but I’ve noticed for such a long time everytime I close my app or on my laptop I come back to my custom filters disappeared? Why is that ? It makes my editing process so hard and it stresses me out. I’m a monthly subscribe and been for a while I honestly feel as if I don’t really get my money worth . Please fix this issue.
Lots of Bugs on IPhone 11 Pro
by Melek6311 on 2019/10/01 19:53
App has a lot of issues. When selecting a value (I.e. contrast) to adjust it will randomly bug out at change it for you. Had issues with saving modifications to photos as well. I use this app all the time and I find it incredibly useful. Please fix it!
Please work on it
by Lil Rabies on 2019/09/30 22:15
I like how the app is free but when I bring the pictures to my laptop to edit and airdrop it to my phone, the quality of pictures aren’t good. On my laptop there’s more options to edit more than my phone and I would like you guys to put more options for the phones
Terrible
by Onionpeel on 2019/09/30 00:15
After the update the app will not work! I even paid for a full subscription and the app will not load if I click on a certain thing it’ll freeze and force me to close it and will not work no matter what I try. This is ridiculous I used this app for my career as a photo editor and it updated and hasn’t worked since :(
annoying
by Kir76 on 2019/09/28 14:20
I used to live polarr and I still do, but recently I keep getting pop ups for me to try their premium things. you can’t close it out or anything. I will be going from applying a filter to adjust it and it will pop up right in the middle of it. if I hit any of the buttons on the pop up it will let me continue my edits but not let me save it because I’ve applied a premium option. so I have to start all over again and still get the pop ups. at this point, i might delete it
Bravo
by went the trolley on 2019/09/28 06:41
I have tried several photo enhancement apps. This one is awesome right out of the box. With so many options and functions to choose from, the possibilities are nearly endless. I would strongly recommend this app for those that love photos and the ability to touch them up. Please try it... you will love it ❤️
I’m having issues!!
by Maybee360 on 2019/09/27 20:08
Polarr used to be great, but now there are subscriptions and there’s no problem with that except now literally any feature I use AT ALL says I’m using pro features!! WTH
This is excellent.
by Scrivner7 on 2019/09/27 02:15
I’m no professional photographer, but this app offers the largest range of options when it comes to editing a photo. It’s so good that it made me send my first review of an app👌🏾

Not ready for iOS 13...
by Big Dugger on 2019/09/24 13:38
Can’t count the bugs in this application since the update. It is useless, now. Before you consider raising your subscription price, maybe you should consider improving the stability of your product.

Excellent application BRAVO

by Crispcrust1296 on 2019/09/19 04:37
i’ve been using this app for forever now but recently it hasn’t been letting me save my pictures or even lets me edit them .. whenever i try to save the screen just turns grey or if not that it’ll say it’s saving but it will never actually save. Please fix this because i edit all of my pictures with this app.
Please fix this
by Iconicpolarr on 2019/09/17 23:55
Overall an amazing app but unfortunately I can’t import or edit any of my filters whatsoever, I can’t even save my photos if I try the screen turns grey
works pretty well but i can’t import filters anymore
by throwaway739491 on 2019/09/17 02:31
i loved this app and all the filters but recently i can’t import qr codes from my camera roll and i’ve searched everywhere for a solution. i can’t even find a service site or something of that like. is there anything i can do? thx
Really strong photo editor.
by Trippalhealicks on 2019/09/15 23:32
This app rivals Adobe Lightroom. Only a couple things I would change. 1. Rename the “Brightness” slider to “Exposure” or retool it if these are indeed two different things...whatever. 2. The crop mode can be annoying, at times. Developer, please make the crop mode “sticky” so that it won’t allow you to crop outside of the desired aspect ratio when one is selected. Other than those two things, the app is fantastic. Highly recommended.
I love it so much
by valen7inaz716 on 2019/09/09 23:12
The free tools are great, even though they do have “pro” things, i can edit what i need and want with the free version.
Get it now.
by Rod101m8 on 2019/09/08 20:18
I've never really been a fan of photo editing apps, but Polarr is hands down the greatest app for editing pictures that I've ever used and I repeatedly go back to it on my iMac and my phone. It’s interface is amazing.
Give it a try
by GG Mila on 2019/09/03 20:22
I must confess that I have not used it a lot, but to edit some family photos and some landscape photos and Polarr went from being my complementary editing tool to be the first one to apply. It easy to used, very much like other editing tools, plus now you have option on save formats which allow you to save on storage space for those so important photos and much more give it a try you won’t regret it.
love the app!
by Works great 5 stars👑⭐ on 2019/08/29 05:03
but would it be possible to ever have an option for videos ?
Si trabaja con raw
by Reeld55 on 2019/08/27 05:06
Muy buena app sobre todo porque trabaja con archivos raw... menos con los de gopro.. deberas convertirlas
A good go-to
by thisisyourcaptsin on 2019/08/26 16:54
I’m an ex vsco user. I found polarr in 2017 then quickly upgraded to pro, and have been using it regularly ever since. The filters come in a wide variety and manually editing is quick and easy. Pretty intuitive user interface to top it off. On the customer support end, I’ve only had good experiences.
Amazing but one problem (For me)
by Shiner1230 on 2019/08/25 02:14
This app is great, you could share it with your friends! Buut there’s a problem for me, after creating my edits, I tried to save the filter and make it into a QR code but it couldn’t load, I couldn’t tell if it was the internet or it’s a bug
Not good at all.
by No use for a nickname! on 2019/08/21 18:42
The controls are so limited. I am assuming Apple patented all of the good features and sues anyone who tries to make a good app... For example there is a pixelate feature. You can only pixelate the entire photo or none of the photo. No options to crop it.... I have used android phones over 7 years old that have better options then this... sad.
Great free editing app!!!
by baryefraimov on 2019/08/21 15:34
When i first got the app i was so impressed with the all kinds of settings and filters and edits. I really like and really recommend getting this free app.
it’s amazing truly
by -tinted on 2019/08/20 03:09
The app really useful and all free
Stop forcing me to make an account
by MataNataM on 2019/08/20 01:09
Ok so I really really like this app but seriously, this isn’t a social media it’s a photo editing app. As of 5.5.12 you have to set up an account to be able to "save edits as filter". Please stop forcing me to create an account. It’s annoying. Also, not related, but there used to be a little triangle on the top corner of an image to indicate it’s been edited, for whatever reason it’s gone. Can you bring that back?
A nice App
by Faramin1945 on 2019/08/17 02:15
It’s the first time which I give an app 5 star. Love it ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Finally!!!!
by Familyfirst2019 on 2019/08/14 23:06
This app is brilliant! Finally, an app that has the entire package. When it comes to editing iPhone DSLR-whatever. It beats most editing apps I've used yet!
Used to love, but the new update messed everything up.
by Jinafire Demew on 2018/08/10 17:13
I’ve been using Polarr since late 2016, and for the most part it’s been pretty great, with a few bugs in between and issues with the quality, but the problems were fixed quite quickly. I purchased Polarr Pro’s selective adjustments in around 2017 and it worked fine, but recently with the new Polarr SO many new issues have risen. The first time I updated it to the new Polarr, it would not let me save any of my selective adjustments. Gradient, color masks, none of them would save. Sometimes it would crash, other times it wouldn’t even save as the filter I had filtered it as, but instead another filter I had previously made?? Recently, a few issues have been fixed but new problems have started. Everything including gradient and radial all work with my purchases but when I add the color scale to a color mask, it doesn’t save. The color mask is still there, but the actual color scale is zero. Please fix these issues, or bring back the old Polarr and work on the new one on the side. So many new issues that me and quite a few of my friends who have been using it for a long time are giving up on it.
Love the settings
by IMjunipa on 2018/01/13 06:06
I bumbled across this app in an earlier inception a few years ago and have watched it slowly, steadily improve, and noticed that the developers are constantly working on making upgrades then communicating those outright. This reason alone shows me a successful company behind the app. That being said, I am very happy with many of the filters and find each are well organized into categories making it easy to work with my landscape photos, however, I agree with another user’s feedback about the healing tool. I wish it was a little bit more precise and could offer more options such as where the healing section is copying from, radius, etc. On occasion I will run into a glitch where I have to shut down the program and restart in order to continue functioning. This often happens when I am using several filters. Overall I’m very happy and I would recommend Polarr Pro for anyone who wants to enhance their photos. Keep up the good work guys, I’m happy to have this in my app folder, and to be able to contribute my thoughts and experiences. I believe you read each and every comment and are endeavoring to respond when necessary.
Best editing app yet!
by Lana Ressie on 2018/11/21 19:00
I’ve tried and tested many editing apps, and since I don’t use the premium version, many of them weren’t good. The other apps were just so bad, the picture ended up looking overly saturated and super cheesy. The only way you could have edited well on those apps are if you used the premium feature, and they were expensive! After testing many apps and almost giving up, I found Polarr. The editing actually looks natural and pretty and the functions and tools are really easy to use. Ultimately, my pictures ended up looks beautiful! The only request or frustration I have with this app is that there is no home screen so the only pages you have is the photo you are editing, which bothers me a little. But in terms of the editing quality, this app is perfect for me!
great app but a few bugs
by @gyfueroa on 2019/01/09 08:28
i’ve been using polarr for over a year now and it’s always served me well. i’d been putting off writing a review for polarr for a good amount of time now though because polarr itself is a great app, i just thought my problem would’ve been mentioned by other users and been fixed by now, but my problem still exists. the app itself is very easy to use and has TONS of features to use for pretty much every type of photo. my problem is that after editing and exporting maybe 6 photos at a time (individually instead of with the batch export feature), when i try to open another picture polarr either freezes and crashes or very tightly crops the photo (usually when there is a face in the picture). i don’t think it has to do with the hardware polarr is being running on. this has been happening to me for a few months now on my ipad pro and even recently on a new iphone.
Great results but a few bugs
by P.mousse Esq. on 2017/11/07 18:06
For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it's implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job. The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can't use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn't perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I've been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I've tried.
A Favorite Editing App
by Lost in the feed on 2018/01/14 02:37
I am a bit of a photo editing app junkie, and had originally downloaded this app amid several others. I got so caught up in the other apps I didn’t spend much time and took it off my device. I noticed it on my cloud the other day, downloaded it and found exactly what I was looking for. Not only does it have the color modifying tools I was looking for (on most apps it is a paid feature) the filters are wonderful. I found the exact filter I was looking for to use on my Instagram, but I almost went with one of the filters in the Japanese photo set. It took a bit to figure out the navigation (and how to add tools to your tool bar) but I am so glad I took the time. I am not devoted to a single app, but this is now become one of my top three editors.
A PERSONAL FAVORITE
by sweetninje on 2018/02/04 00:49
Polar photo editing app is awesome! Without even feting into the paid version you get a ton of amazing options, filters, effects and tools! Believe me , these are not limited to the Instagram or Facebook or editing photoshop copycats! Polar is professional grade in quality, user interface, appearance and detail. Appreciated the prompts and helper which you can hide if you don’t need or dislike . I found It tremendously helpful. It’s not the easiest app, so I wouldn’t necessarily suggest it to someone not accustomed to some version of photo shop or another editing apps, but with with the helper option you can figure it out and deliver pro -level edited photographs. I am probably going to bite the bullet and purchase the pro version . It’s that good!
LOVE THIS APP!!!
by Sarah - House of Wend on 2018/05/04 07:16
I have been looking for a pro level photo editing program to use for all the photos I take as a travel blogger. I just was reluctant to jump on he lightroom bandwagon. After reading a ton of positive reviews about Polarr from photographers, I decided to give it a try. Within minutes I was hooked! It is such a powerful tool and the fact that you can use it across multiple platforms is HUGE! I initially had some trouble unlocking the pro features on my laptop that I paid for in the phone app. But within minutes of writing to support I got a response and within 24 hours they had fixed the kink. Can’t beat that! I’m so thrilled with this app and excited to master all of its amazing features!!!
Best app I could find but..
by Lipbitestyles on 2019/06/13 04:06
I have been using this app for a little over a year and everything has been perfect so far but recently I’ve started to notice a slight change or bug if you will. I click on the app and everything is fine when I edit a photo, I am a pro member, but when I click out and then back into that same photo, suddenly it’s super cropped to the point where there is barely anything to see. And it also will not let me save any filters I have created. Other times when I click into a photo I desire to edit, the screen goes black (sometimes it becomes white) and I have to restart the app. Please fix this bug and I will continue to use the app because it has become very frustrating. I rarely write reviews..
Amazing free app without adds that actually does stuff.
by MDtheAfroCat@DA on 2017/12/25 04:51
Great app that i’ve been using for ever a year now as my go too editor for pictures. The tools are easy to use and they all work well. Definitely worth the $20 for the pro features. The only problem i’ve had is working with the color mask on areas with large amounts of red, where I use exposure changes to make the effected area easier to see. All in all though it’s a powerful photo editor that will make anyone happy. Only feature it really needs to be perfect is a quick way to pull in other pictures to use as masks instead of using the watermark tool over and over again...which i’ve done before.
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
Pretty Good
by Aleena Marie on 2019/05/27 12:38
The features in this app are pretty great, actually- everything is in one place which is very practical. My only major annoyance is that you only get one free export a day without upgrading. The cost to upgrade is fairly reasonable, especially for what the app is- but I’d like it if we could export more than one picture a day with the free version. Even if it were like 3 a day, or maybe unlimited exports but without the option of choosing if it is saved as a png/jpeg/the quality etc. Other than that, you can get around just fine without upgrading and not feel terribly frustrated. It’s nice that the app doesn’t accost you demanding you upgrade every time you open it. Over all a pretty capable and easy to navigate photo editor.
Love the options but stop the upgrade ads!!
by jewel_and_stone on 2019/05/28 18:56
I really enjoyed using this app, it’s actually become my go-to editing app along side one other. I don’t even use the Pro features and my pics look awesome. But now I can’t even save my non-pro image without an ad coming up for me to either “Upgrade” or “Try Pro Features”. To get out of the ad (because there is no “X” button) I click “Upgrade” and it takes me to a page with options and prices. I can then click “X” out of that, but when I try to save my picture again it tells me I’m using Pro features and I cannot save the image without upgrading. It was a little annoying at first but now I legit cannot save ANYTHING. And I haven’t used a single Pro feature!! I’m so annoyed and irritated. I just want to use this app the way it’s supposed to be used, but the “Upgrade” ad keeps messing it up!
Lowers Photo Quality
by MEMBERS_ONLY on 2018/02/15 05:25
I really do love this app. I’ve been using it for quite some time now and i have to say it’s super easy to use and it’s honestly so different from other editing apps like VSCO or Afterlight, etc. However i find that when saving my edit to my camera role, it lowers the quality of the photo, which is very disappointing since the edit looks so amazing prior to saving it. It’s like i get a final result I’m happy with and when i save it and check the photo just saved, the quality is not as good as shown on the app itself. Because of this i started to use other editing apps, none of which allow me to create edits just like this app does. So please fix this as i really want to have good quality photos!!
STILL Problematic After Latest Update
by HollyDay on 2019/10/09 19:43
This app is SUCH A MESS. After multiple updates, developers still didn't get it right! Icons jumping or overlapping over each other, so one has to close the app, lose all edits, and re-open app and start from scratch. Photos automatically downgraded in quality and colouring on opening. Filters no longer adjustable. Face Tools randomly auto-changing things in the wrong way. Tool adjustment bars going in the opposite direction of what you're pushing it towards. Photos saving in much lower resolution, despite setting it to "Best" setting. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I wish I'd never updated about 5 updates ago! A perfectly great app has turned into amateur rubbish. Bugs squashed? What a joke! What are you doing over there? With so many negative reviews, you have to know this is just really bad. Time to find a new app that actually works because this app has gone bye bye.
It’s about the $$$ already paid
by UnKnown Comic Hey on 2019/06/27 05:20
I already paid for this if I am not mistaken right after I got it when it came out or was on the APP Store. This is possibly another app that charges a one time fee for lifetime use of a pro version the goes to a subscription based service. If you are like me and have a bunch of hobbies and what not then use several to 30 or 50 apps to work and research or just view, it doesn’t take much to get a few hundred plus apps. It’s hard to keep up with who is change what when so you trust them to do the right thing and not cheat you. I am getting cheated left and right. I know I have paid for upgrades for this app for sure. I remember doing everything/pro version. I hit restore purchases and nothing. I will change my review to reflect the app performance when they fix it. I am not paying for something I already bought.
Pricing has me concerned
by TimBsTechTalk on 2018/05/12 09:04
The ubiquity of the new pricing model has me a bit concerned. Before subscriptions, you could at most pay $4.99 outright for an app like this. Now we are asked to rent the app $36 a year or $24 a year if you pay for a year. Even if you paid 5 in-app purchases for $1.99 when using the earlier model, you are still only spending $15 for owning the app out-right. If you plan to use the app for 3 years, you pay $72 to rent. That is 5 times the price and we are still only borrowing it. This subscription model is hard enough with movies and music, but to use this model for every app you purchase? I like trying different apps to see what developers are capable of offering. If I downloaded 30 apps a year using the subscription model, I can be expected to pay $720 a year - just to rent the apps. And that’s not including Mac apps. This is unadulterated greed. It’s a shame because this is a nice app and developers deserve to make a living, but not like this. Unfortunately, I now have to be very selective and I choose not to pay another subscription fee for filters. Maybe Apple’s next conference should be WWCC, a customer’s conference.
If it only would stop crashing. It makes me sad lol
by Crazymommy+5 on 2019/10/05 21:27
This is so far, my favorite editing app... almost. Long sigh. I do sports photography, I love it. This app does amazing edits. But just as soon as I think I’m done. It freezes and just zones out. Doesn’t close, it’s doesn’t do anything. Just goes blank. So, then I have to start allllll the way over, and pray it doesn’t crash again. Honestly, if it didn’t do that. I would rate it 5 stars, and subscribe for whatever. It would be amazing. It could use more text/font options. Those are a little lacking, and boring. I have shed a tear or three, because of the crashes. Debating on just getting rid of it. But I keep hoping it will be fixed. Please fix whatever is causing the freeze/crash. And I will subscribe for whatever amount you’re charging. And give it 5 stars.
Glitches but still great
by Alicia & the boys !!☺️ on 2019/01/12 07:15
I am learning how to use this app. I do get confused from time to time. But I’ve only been using it for about a week. The one thing that has drove me crazy is that it will crash out of nowhere. It doesn’t do it all the time just sometimes. I would love to be able to have all my photos on a homepage instead of them all having to be in my iPads camera roll. Just a thought but maybe adding a makeup/hair section would be great. I use this app on pictures for Pageant advertising. This would help correct people’s makeup. Just thought tho
Has almost everything!
by maxblack113 on 2019/05/12 12:53
Easily the most complete photo editor for iOS. It has every tool you’d ever need. Today I’m updating my review after the Polarr team finally added VERY long-awaited RAW support. I’m beyond excited that RAW support has been added, so I’ve added another star to my rating. Unfortunately, whatever RAW engine they’re using to load RAW photos is meh. When compared to other RAW photo editors, photos just seem to be missing clarity and Polarr simply can’t seem to pull the detail out of shadows and highlight. Final results pretty much always come out muddy and fuzzy. This a huge step in the right direction, but the current RAW engine is kind of unusable.
Bummer
by UpRocka on 2019/10/20 16:30
Lame... now Polarr charges for “batch export” when it used to be included in the free version? Everyone’s moving to these monthly payment structures. Do you guys even make money this way? I mean I fully get why you would opt for this vs a one time payment since you get to keep a more steady revenue coming in to help further develop the app... but who actually pays for these? Literally every app that demands a monthly fee to just use the core features I delete and I’ll wager to bet a good deal of other users are the same exact way. It’s a pointless exchange and really only serves the devs. I’d rather pay a slightly higher up front one time cost instead of being billed monthly for a simple feature add on. Really hope this business model dies off soon cuz it’s lame as fuuuuu.
Constant Pop-Ups and No ‘X’ Button
by squareroot3.14 on 2019/06/22 15:38
Listen, I understand that you need to promote your pro features for money’s sake, but it gets annoying when you can’t decline. It’s frustrating when it constantly pops up and the only two options are to either ‘try it’ or ‘upgrade’. You should give an option where you can press ‘no’ or ‘x’ to decline it overall. If you try the pro filter you can’t export the photo, so you have to go through and find what it gave you and get rid of it. (It’s especially annoying if it doesn’t have its own major option and is within another option. Ex: The denoise tool is within the detail button.) If you press ‘upgrade’ and then ‘x’ afterwords it still applies the feature, giving you the same problem as before. I was trying to overlook this previously, hoping that it would be fixed in a recent update, but it hasn’t changed. This gets really frustrating and makes it difficult to edit my photos. I would appreciate if this was looked into and if a solution to my problem was provided.
Updated to 5 stars! Thanks for fixing stability issues!
by fl3urdelis on 2019/05/28 23:15
Updated back to 5 stars. Thanks, devs, for fixing the stability issues! No more app crashes = much better editing workflow. Polarr has been my go-to mobile editing app for YEARS and it has so much amazing functionality packed into an app. I love the curves and HSL adjustment, as well as the ability to save filters. I’ve used this app extensively for travel photography, which has allowed me to leave my computer (and my copy of Photoshop CS6) at home when backpacking. I love this app because it has something for everyone. Do you want to make quick and easy edits? Sure, use a filter, or save your edits as a filter, or use the auto editing mode. But if you’re like me and want full creative control of your imagery, this app has SO much fine-tuning functionality, even in the free version. I’ve recommended this app to so many of my photographer friends and they all loved it as well!
Great photo app and good to it's loyal customers
by F9X on 2018/05/13 08:08
About a year and a half ago I paid for the app, it's the only app I use for my photographs, i've always love the filters and the choices I can do to make my photographs better. I'm not a photographer in anyway but polarr makes it easy brings the best out of my photographs. I'm also very appreciative that they're not screwing the current customer base who have supported the app over the years. In return I've always recommend at the app when people ask me what do I use for my photographs, people to buy it. Thank you once again for a great app.
Having to restore purchase several times per day.
by JMLCMark on 2018/12/28 14:49
I like the app itself. It is a great app, and usually works very well. I can live with the occasional crashes when applying blur because it usually works after a restart or two. The big problem for me is that with a recent update (5.3.0), the app wanted me to pay for a subscription. I bought Polarr before the subscription model because they announced that if you bought it at that time, as an early supporter, you’d have the app for free for life. I understand the subscription model, but I also did expect them to keep their word. I am hopeful that this is just a bug.
Hands down the best photo editing app
by Apploverreview on 2017/12/01 18:20
I use manyyyy photo apps and I always go back to Polarr because it has the best features to edit your photo. There are a lot of ways to bring out the best of your photo and Polarr does that for sure, I have been using this app for so many years and it only keeps updating and is getting better and better. Just download and play around with it, don’t be intimidated by the many options it has, it definitely will give you a professional editing power that other apps don’t give.
Glitchy
by Dpana90 on 2018/10/11 18:52
I’m using 2017 iPad and for some reason I can only edit one picture; then I have to close/reset the app so I can edit another.. otherwise it will be so glitchy for the second pic. Even in the first pic it can get really glitchy. Also, there’s a problem when I save a pic, it can no longer be edited in the Photos app. It says “Cannot Download Photo: There was an erro downloading this photo from iCloud Photos. Please try again later.” I thought that I didn’t had enough space in the clouds but no, I have plenty of space. We need a huge bug fix update. This is my favorite app which I paid for the premium features. This app is awesome when it works.
it was amazing but now it’s not
by natalicsux on 2019/04/30 07:19
it’s an amazing app, please don’t get me wrong. that’s why i gave it a fair two stars. the app crashes every time, three weeks and still not update for the bugs. deletes my overlays and i have to constant reupload them. then, my filters get all messed up and not the way they usually are ( they get darker and some effects get taken off ) so it scared me one time but i only just had to close and open the app THREE TIMES. polarr customer support and the developers see these comments but still don’t make any changes and ask to email them for more info. this is the best that i can write. stop telling us to email you for more info when you are already aware since every body is writing the same kind of reviews. WE NEED AN UPDATE TO FIX THE BUGS!
Love the App but Re-select/edit issue
by GrantedElijah on 2019/06/12 18:05
Ive loved this app for some years now, but theres been this bug thats been there since ive had the app that I seriously need fixed, When you leave a picture after editing it already and click on the picture again, it OVER saturated your picture to a ridiculous point and changes some of your settings and the only way to get it back to normal is by reverting back to normal and re-editing it or by just not saving it again, this has been my biggest issue with the app since day 1 PLEASE fix it and this app would be perfect!
I’m not liking this app anymore.
by WingedOracle on 2019/01/20 04:26
It was working perfectly the first few days. I even went pro and got a subscription. But now it logs me out the second I log in and the app continues to ask me to upgrade when I did weeks ago. Now every time I use the filters it takes away a very important part, leaving my pictures blurry. I tried looking up what’s wrong with it but it doesn’t seem to be doing the same to anyone else I know using the app. I don’t think I want to renew my subscription next month.
I Need Support with this!!!

so I’ve been using this app for 3 months now, i’ve been able to save my custom filters. when It was updated about a month ago, I lost about 200+ filters. It took forever to restore them and i couldn’t even get them all back. Super inconvenient. It also happened with a ton of other people.... for the past week whenever I open the app, my filters are gone again. I keep trying to upload them back on, but they just keep deleting from the app when i open it up the next day....besides that the app is great, but I really need help with this...
HIGHLY RECCOMEND
by Walshy 03 on 2018/02/28 04:49
This app is honestly amazing. I downloading it thinking “ What could this app truly do if it’s free” well let me tell you that this app does way more than you’d expect. Usually apps that are free and do photo editing make you pay for all these filters to edit your picture but this app gives you tons to chose from and a bunch, A BUNCH of options to customize your picture as well. And you can add your own watermark, save the photo in whatever setting you’d like (PNG is most common). This is the best FREE photo editing app by far
Great, but....
by Magoose Reviews on 2018/12/19 21:19
This app has done me well on editing pictures for quite a while now (coming on 2 years). I’ve had the pro adjustments for almost all of that time, and I can say with certainty that charging so much for the filters and tools isn’t necessary. The new subscription feature just essentially took away all of my unlocked tools and features, saying that I needed an account and the pro plan to continue using. Unless you’re willing to spend almost $30 a year on a mobile app, just use the base version or don’t even bother with this app.
Great app
by SidBurkePhotos on 2019/02/13 04:14
I’m a professional photographer and I love this app for so many reason 1. It helps to adjust coloring on photo’s and the clarity of your photo. 2. The tools are easy to use they are very simple. 3. As a professional photographer I have my own water mark and Polarr allows me to use it in the app. I really love this app I have had it crash on me mid editing but when I open it back up the photo I was working on pops right back up and right where I was editing and I don’t have to start all over again it’s a great app
Great, But Annoying
by Tutu girl 5000 on 2019/05/15 03:52
I’ve been using polarr for about a year now but since you started promoting the pro version so frequently, the app has been so difficult to use. Trying to remove a filter or change a filter results in multiple pro ads coming up that you can’t exit out of, and trying to save an edited photo is very annoying because the app says you’re using pro features so you can’t save the photo, even though you weren’t using any at all. The app would be perfect if the pro ads were less restricting and frequent.
Amazing App, But....
by Highly frustrated customer on 2017/11/21 00:45
I have loved using polarr for over a year now. It is so helpful to edit photos. However, for the past few weeks, it has been very difficult to use. It crashes often, and I can hardly get more than a few things done in one sitting. This is very upsetting, as polarr is by far the best photo editing app available. I have an iPhone 5s, by the way. I would appreciate this problem be fixed so I will able to return to utilizing my favorite photo editor.
Move of previously included of features to “Paid” has me worried.
by B5BAR on 2019/10/27 23:04
I was onboard and support the idea of devs making money for some of the features that I have not tapped into yet, however the move of some features that pulled me into Polar (Batch processing) now being subscription based, feels like a bait and switch tactic. This is hands down the best photo editing application on iOS, however I worry whenever devs move features “upscale” and charge more to keep key functionality unlocked. I subscribed to paid now (I took the bait devs), but what is stopping this dev team from making the features I use and need a “higher tier” subscription, at a higher price, without warning?
2 Pros or 1?
by PhelineCat on 2019/11/24 17:42
Before I dive in again I wish apps were required to be clear on what in-app purchases were getting me and what evil subscriptions do. It’s an investment of time to figure out what’s different than what I have, what’s fluff, what maybe I’ve been looking for but if I can’t tell what the payment structure is I’m likely to not bother. Plus subscription costs … $2/mo v $1/mo makes a huge difference and you’re certain to get more than 2x the subscribers with half the cost. $10/annually floods you with them. Don’t be greedy. Look at the industry numbers. I did.
VERY DISAPPOINTED!
by mekenziephotography on 2018/12/25 22:06
I have used pollar for a very long time &amp; I have loved it, however it has started to glitch on my laptop &amp; my phone!! I use the pro version(the one you pay for) and I don’t like the fact that I’m paying for something that isn’t working properly. Pollar has been great but with the glitches I can’t edit like I used to. It does things like close me out, crops my photos when I’m not trying to, doesn’t save my edits &amp; much more:(. It has started to make my phone over heat &amp; glitch so I had to part with it. I hope that these things can be fixed. I’m very sad that I am being forced to part w it.
Love this app but it’s stopped working.
by @shadowginger on 2018/05/17 16:12
I really really love this app, it is so easy to use and it’s the only app I’ve found that has a clarity tool, and that is the best feature on this app. However a few days ago it stopped working, when I tap on a photo to edit it, the whole screen goes gray and won’t let me do anything. I have tried everything, I’ve restarted my phone and deleted the app and re-downloaded it but nothing. Please fix this I love this app so much.
Why is this?
by FroadnRoller on 2019/11/02 13:05
Long time user... suddenly the picture disappears. Is there a vanishing effect or setting? Id live to get all that time back. Its the only app worth actually buying. Linking everything to Apple to make a purchase, id rather go to the dentist. I have a big project for my grandfather to do and time isn’t exactly plentiful.... And i need to reup on my subscription too. Pressure is on Polarr! Comp the subscription fix the disappearing act. My time, user time super valuable. No compensations for the lost amounts. Im calling it in now. Reparations. Not 1 problem for years, now its a game of chicken. Next platform update ad auto save. Thank you.🧸
Amazing features but laggy
by Giorg6244 on 2018/03/10 23:38
Polarr is probably one of the best free photo editing apps. It has a lot of useful features like blur brush, curves, and good color editing. However, it often seems like it can’t handle its own features. Whenever I use it for an extended amount of time (over 10 min editing) it starts to glitch - especially when I use the blur brush. It gets so laggy to the point where closing out the app and letting it rest doesn’t even fix it right away. Really disappointing because it makes the app very hard to use sometimes. If that weren’t a problem the app would be perfect.
I usually love this app but...
by pipipinoboy on 2019/07/07 06:33
This app is usually great, I use it to edit my photos all the time and used to have no issues, however recently whenever I’d go back to edit a picture or when I would use the history tool, there would be this glitch where the photo will crop to someone’s face and I wouldn’t be able to go back to the edited photo. I hope the devs will fix this soon it’s super annoying. Otherwise the app is great tho, it gives so many options for editing especially for a free app!
Almost there
by 7 billion people on 2019/08/02 00:23
Amazing app! There are so many great features in this app. It is a must try for serious photo editors. Just needs three thing for me to subscribe and become a huge advocate. 1. RAW editing - I know its coming so yay! 2. Better Export options - needs Tiff, 16bit, and higher quality jpeg. The jpeg compression is way to aggressive. It ditches 60-70% of the data on the best setting. 3. Please make the spot healing tool easier to use. It would be much better if we did not have to move, resize the circles, and then press a check mark to remove each imperfection in the skin. This get labor intensive quick when someone has a lot of acne. We should be able to just color over the imperfection and done. Please please please add these things 🙏🏼 I read through your website. You guys are awesome! I love where this company is going!
Give it a try
by GG Mila on 2019/09/03 20:22
I must confess that I have not used it a lot, but to edit some family photos and some landscape photos and Polarr went from being my complementary editing tool to be the first one to apply. It easy to used, very much like other editing tools, plus now you have option on save formats which allow you to save on storage space for those so important photos and much more give it a try you won’t regret it.
My opinion
by Jeongmo on 2019/10/30 21:20
I love the app, I&#39;ve been using it for like a month noe and I don&#39;t have any issues with it and by far it&#39;s one of my favorites in filters, the filters look really smooth and everything is perfect it has a nice setting to understand better the use of it, but in my opinion if the app had the option to add filters to gifs it would be amazing for real. Overall the app is a top five and I can bet everyone will live it.
Probably the Best!
by Stevearcher on 2017/11/18 01:40
In an era of strongly competitive photo editing software for iOS (finally!), Polarr is the best I&#39;ve found. And I own virtually all of them, including subscription-based. As a former longtime Mac Photoshop user, I gradually accustomed myself to the very different iOS interface with Photoforge 2, a great global adjustment app eventually abandoned by its developer. Polarr is now a more powerful tool with truly ingenious simplicity. But it IS necessary to send a little time learning all of Polarr&#39;s shortcuts! It is worth it!
My go-to mobile editor
by CoCuGi on 2018/01/15 03:23
Sleek but powerful in a word. Quick bug fixes, including those on previous versions of iOS is AMAZING. It does lack some, at least free, features including dual exposure, masking and other region specific editing capabilities that competitors have. Oddly enough, there doesn&#39;t seem to be any way to completely delete edits, and a photo is marked as edited even if you only view it on the app. Overall, it has some quirks but I would recommend after using it for about a year
Pretty Good But Not Excellent Yet
by kdcltgrl69 on 2018/04/02 16:15
I downloaded this app to help me edit concert photography. It’s a good tool for adding and enhancing color, correcting flaws and other minimal fixes. My only issue with the app is when you’re in the process of editing a photo, the screen &amp; buttons freezes and you have to exit the app and go back in. This makes the editing process very time consuming, especially when you’re editing 20 or more photos. If they continue to work out freezing screen and a few other bugs, this app could be a photographer’s dream.

Glitch
by Amara Jane on 2019/12/04 16:34
I’m having a glitch where I can’t download filters onto polarr. Do you think you can look into it?
hate it
by lexiiii snyderrrr on 2019/12/01 20:42
i used to love using polarr but now i cant import any new filters at all. i try to but it does nothing. please fix this. :(
Thanks for everything

The Best Paid or Free Photo Editing App
by Sederick1 on 2019/11/24 16:40
Love taking pictures and editing them. This App is free and does a better job than the paid photo editing apps. I also have the desktop app for Mac. Awesome job developers
APP crashing with IOS13.3
by Tyjuuitedfhm on 2019/11/21 08:18
Apple did another update 13.3 I think? and now Polarr isn’t working. I LOVE THIS APP. I NEED IT TO WORK ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I must admit the app is superb..
by @Sigil on 2019/11/19 00:49
The app is fantastic. The UI is intuitive and aesthetically pleasing. There is extra value here, because you get access to the Mac App. I still believe that the &#34;Pro&#34; users or those who paid should of received a discounted membership or a free year. That said, I won&#39;t hate on such a beautiful and feature rich app. Update: The tutorials are great. The express version is more than adequate for casual photographers like me. I was upset that I was not “grandfathered” after the change to subscription model. However, what I would be missing is the additional filters.
Simple Enough even for an 80 year old

I am a disabled combat Veteran with limited mobility and slowed cognition...yet I can use this app on my historic imGes reliably and quickly. Thank You....did i say &#34;Thank You&#34;
no watermark when editing
by ra829273 on 2019/11/18 12:39
the massive watermark in the middle is terrible and also the app is very glitchy and doesn’t save so i usually have to screenshot the picture in order to save it - please fix the glitches and get rid of the giant POLARR in the middle :/
Um...
by Deja4567 on 2019/11/17 22:20
the last update literally broke this app, and it was like right after I paid for this month too. I only see a blank gray screen now.
NEEDS new Update ASAP
by mebejessie on 2019/11/17 07:33
Photos keep disappearing while editing App keeps crashing Deleting a tool makes a duplicate This app is driving me nuts Too many bugs to count
Excellent software for iPhone!!
by Musa M Quazi on 2019/11/17 00:52
Love everything about this easy to use software!
Awesome!
by Maui Kid on 2019/11/16 23:16
11/16/19 - Update Still the best photo editor!!! 5 Stars! _________________ Took me some time to familiarize myself with the app, and now I’m finding its very worthy of 5 stars! I really like all the options and filter choices. My go to photo photo editing app for iOS!!
Extremely blurry photos now?
by TB-8121-2200 on 2019/11/16 08:32
Don’t know why but now it’s extremely blurry when I save my photos despite if I put it on low quality or the best?
Professional style
by LauraLovedy on 2019/11/15 14:55
These filters are amazing. They instantly transform photos into your vision. Love this app.
Used to love this app...
by awacks3 on 2019/11/14 04:52
Ive had this app for a LONG time and they recently took away the option to try the pro filters on the picture. they are all locked now and you cant even &#34;demo&#34; it :/ the filters should still be included in the 1 pro save a day bc some of us are broke college kids who cant afford the subscription (even if it is as little as it is😅)
Great features
by Guapo_0 on 2019/11/14 02:07
Lacks certain features
help
by BBlue1111 on 2019/11/12 19:04
it is so glitchy, i love the filters but it doesn’t work it says exported but then it’s never in the exported file i would love to use this app but it needs to be fixed
Good, but...
by LilYachtyFan12 on 2019/11/06 04:55
I would buy the full app if it was a one time purchase, but the subscription is way too expensive and complicated for me. A one time purchase would make me and a lot of other people buy the pro version.
Verification not working
by Carriebski on 2019/11/06 04:49
Is there some sort of trick to the verification code? I’m getting the email. I see the code. I type the code it. It says it is not valid. Another code is sent. I type THAT one in. It says it is not valid. More than a little frustrating... Help please?
Malísimo
by enid1824 on 2019/11/05 20:07
La aplicación no me funciona y mi teléfono es un iPhone XS Max. Lo he instalado varías veces y no funciona, me gustaría que arreglaran eso, a mi siempre me ha encantado ésta aplicación para mis fotos. Espero y puedan resolver el problema.
Beginners love

won't open photos
by phoebea2020 on 2019/11/04 01:52
Used to have the app and loved it. However, I needed to clear space so I deleted it. I needed to use it again and re-downloaded it with no problems, but when I went to use it, it wouldn&#39;t allow me to edit my photos. I would click on the photo I wanted to edit only to have it go to a dark screen for a moment before going back to my camera role. Please fix this
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
Yeah, no thanks
by Kinicks on 2019/11/03 05:06
I would love to try this app, however, it won’t let me edit any photos. I click the picture and the screen flashes and goes back to the gallery. I click to enlarge the picture and then hit edit, and poof back to the gallery. Not so good if it’s glitching right out the gate.
Hate Subscription B.S
by MGMourad on 2019/11/03 01:30
I used to love this app and I was willing to pay $12 to purchase the pro features right out. But since they switched to subscription based service like Adobe, I deleted it and downloaded darkroom instead which is great for me. Save your money and stop the greedy companies from getting greedier.
Why is this?

by Jorlu.pinal on 2019/10/29 20:23
I enjoy so much editing my pictures with Polarr. I am not a professional photographer but I feel like one after I use Polarr.
Is polarr officially over?
by Fhdjdjdkkddkkdkdkd on 2019/10/29 18:06
The app is constantly crashing and doesn’t function the right way.. Rip.
Great app
by gggggttttaevkkxxcc on 2019/10/29 03:37
It is a nice app
It’s not that bad
by _tatumelise on 2019/10/28 22:50
From what I was expecting, it was a vsco kind of app that has a lot of bugs. And don’t get me wrong, I haven’t used it that long and am very likely not utilizing everything this app has to offer, but in my opinion, it is a very good app, for being free. And I can do anything I want without Pro, so it’s not really a necessity, but if you want it, go for it.
Very good
by kpopholic2007 on 2019/10/28 21:20
GOOD APP 👍👍👍
Use to be good
by taylorbrandi82 on 2019/10/28 03:13
I use to love this app. It was my favorite. But it’s absolutely ridiculous now! I can’t even open the app. If I manage to open it and I choose a photo the app will automatically close on me. To top it off, I have the pro subscription and yet none of my filters came back. What happened to them all? I use to use this all time but it looks like I’m going to have to stop. I’ve contacted the support team about it but the haven’t messaged me back. It’s been 3 days and I’m still waiting for them to send a message. I even sent an extra message and still haven’t gotten anything back. I have the premium version which is what makes this so upsetting. I expect an app that I have the premium version for to work, but it won’t and no one will get back to me about why or about what is happening. Please do an update and fix this app. *EDIT* : THE APP GOT FREAKING WORSE AFTER LATEST UPDATE! How is that even possible? Idk but y’all managed to do it.

Please fix this glitch, the app keeps crashing!!
currently broken!!
by ItunesMeister on 2019/10/26 23:02
I love polarr usually but recently it will not continue past the photo selection frame. The photo will say ‘Exported’ but when then clicking ‘Done’ takes you back to the photo selection frame and there is nothing in the exported folder. Then, if you try clicking back it will give you a frozen gray screen. Not to mention, I’ve been getting many frozen title screens. PLEASE fix this.
Fix shapes

Great App, Amazing Customer Service
by Tedog123 on 2019/10/24 23:27
I have been using Polarr since late 2017 on my old Galaxy S8+ and had purchased all of the pro tools before the subscription system. After recently switching to iOS, I was really frustrated that I didn’t have them anymore and hadn’t made an account. After contacting Polarr customer support and explaining the issue I was asked to prove my purchase via Google Play receipts and over the course of just ~2 weeks I was granted a lifetime subscription to Polarr. Now onto the app. Seeing as Adobe Lightroom is Polarr’s main competitor I think it is fair to compare the two. UI: As of a recent update Polarr has crushed Lightroom in this aspect. Full theme customization, the pro workspace and the overall simplicity of the app make it a dream to use as opposed to the cluttered UI of Lightroom Functionality: I’m no expert photo editor, so rage this section with a pinch of salt. (Note that I have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription as well as Polarr Pro as stated above). The apps are nearly identical in terms of features, both containing the tools you would expect from a professional editor. I feel like Polarr may have more tools but it’s hard to tell. Conclusion: Should you get Polarr? Yes. Should you pay for a Polarr pro subscription? It depends. Not all of the features unlocked by a pro subscription are extremely necessary, not to mention that you get one export with pro tools every day. So unless you need to use masks multiple times a day I would say no. In addition, if you already have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, Lightroom is just as good. If you don’t have Creative Cloud, and are looking for pro features, I would recommend Polarr. Unless Photoshop is work the extra $5 per month for you, Polarr is a better app at a lower price (4.99/month vs 9.99/month).
Free app is a great starter kit for amateur photography

If you are taking raw images especially! This app has helped me learn so much! Thanks!
Doesn’t let me
by madwhxeler on 2019/10/23 03:48
Whenever I want to add a filter it doesn’t let me
Bummer
by UpRocka on 2019/10/20 16:30
Lame... now Polarr charges for “batch export” when it used to be included in the free version? Everyone’s moving to these monthly payment structures. Do you guys even make money this way? I mean I fully get why you would opt for this vs a one time payment since you get to keep a more steady revenue coming in to help further develop the app... but who actually pays for these? Literally every app that demands a monthly fee to just use the core features I delete and I’ll wager to bet a good deal of other users are the same exact way. It’s a pointless exchange and really only serves the devs. I’d rather pay a slightly higher up front one time cost instead of being billed monthly for a simple feature add on. Really hope this business model dies off soon cuz it’s lame as fuuuuu.
Haze filter does nothing
by lajollaguy on 2019/10/20 14:56
Updated a couple of days ago to latest version. Suddenly the haze filter has stopped working. The percentage applied changes as the scrub up with your finger, but the image doesn’t, and no effect is saved. Happens with standalone as well as Photos extension. iPadOS 13
I love Polarr but...
by http_marie on 2019/10/18 19:49
It closes every time I open the app.
can’t add filter!!!
by M3RKGranDmaster on 2019/10/17 19:47
Every time I try to add a Filter from my Gallery it doesn’t add and it’s annoying as f**k! I should be able to add new filters!
amazing but very glitchy
by By Ali E. on 2019/10/17 02:04
i love the app and its effects sooo much, but it’s very slow and the app closes itself sometimes. i use my ipad for it, but it works fine on my phone. please update it so it’s not glitchy for ipads!
Good
by just a photo geek on 2019/10/16 08:44
The app keeps crashing while heavy use of the brush tool, its very irritating. One star less just for that. Otherwise a beautiful app. Please solve that!!
Why
by shinmjb on 2019/10/15 03:14
Great. Now it closes every time I open the app.
polarr effed up again
by lil.ian on 2019/10/12 12:43
seriously? i lost all of my filters thanks to you polarr 🙄 please just update the app will ya?
Will not provide QR code
by Xpatra on 2019/10/12 04:34
My phone is connected to the internet and polarr still will not provide any QR code
STILL Problematic After Latest Update
by HollyDay on 2019/10/09 19:43
This app is SUCH A MESS. After multiple updates, developers still didn&#39;t get it right! Icons jumping or overlapping over each other, so one has to close the app, lose all edits, and re-open app and start from scratch. Photos automatically downgraded in quality and colouring on opening. Filters no longer adjustable. Face Tools randomly auto-changing things in the wrong way. Tool adjustment bars going in the opposite direction of what you&#39;re pushing it towards. Photos saving in much lower resolution, despite setting it to &#34;Best&#34; setting. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I wish I&#39;d never updated about 5 updates ago! A perfectly great app has turned into amateur rubbish. Bugs squashed? What a joke! What are you doing over there? With so many negative reviews, you have to know this is just really bad. Time to find a new app that actually works because this app has gone bye bye.
Great App-Awful Bugs
by amat3ur photographer on 2019/10/08 00:58
I love the variety and abundance of tools this app provides, which leads to me spending hours on a photo, but the really f$cking annoying part is the app tends to glitch or kick me out after being on it for a while, and hours of work put into a photo are erased.👎 please fix this. Very frustrating.
If it only would stop crashing. It makes me sad lol
by Crazymommy+5 on 2019/10/05 21:27
This is so far, my favorite editing app... almost. Long sigh. I do sports photography, I love it. This app does amazing edits. But just as soon as I think I’m done. It freezes and just zones out. Doesn’t close, it’s doesn’t do anything. Just goes blank. So, then I have to start allllll the way over, and pray it doesn’t crash again. Honestly, if it didn’t do that. I would rate it 5 stars, and subscribe for whatever. It would be amazing. It could use more text/font options. Those are a little lacking, and boring. I have shed a tear or three, because of the crashes. Debating on just getting rid of it. But I keep hoping it will be fixed. Please fix whatever is causing the freeze/crash. And I will subscribe for whatever amount you’re charging. And give it 5 stars.
Disappointing.
by http.tails on 2019/10/05 15:09
I used to love this app, I have so many custom filters that I use for editing. It’s extremely disappointing that I can’t use them anymore. Ever since the update the app doesn’t open the photo. I click on the app, The app opens, I click on the photo and it just lags and never loads. Please please please fix this soon.
Latest Update Crashes The App
by Hasnofaith on 2019/10/04 08:56
The app has seriously malfunctioned and does not operate properly. The buttons over react to touch. Adjustments are impossible.
I love this app, but
by Fix it gram on 2019/10/03 23:21
I love the app it’s my favorite editing app, but I’ve noticed for such a long time everytime I close my app or on my laptop I come back to my custom filters disappeared? Why is that ? It makes my editing process so hard and it stresses me out. I’m a monthly subscribe and been for a while I honestly feel as if I don’t really get my money worth . Please fix this issue.
Lots of Bugs on IPhone 11 Pro
by Melek6311 on 2019/10/01 19:53
App has a lot of issues. When selecting a value (I.e. contrast) to adjust it will randomly bug out at change it for you. Had issues with saving modifications to photos as well. I use this app all the time and I find it incredibly useful. Please fix it!
Please work on it
by Lil Rabies on 2019/09/30 22:15
I like how the app is free but when I bring the pictures to my laptop to edit and airdrop it to my phone, the quality of pictures aren’t good. On my laptop there’s more options to edit more than my phone and I would like you guys to put more options for the phones
Terrible
by Onionpeel on 2019/09/30 00:15
After the update the app will not work! I even paid for a full subscription and the app will not load if I click on a certain thing it’ll freeze and force me to close it and will not work no matter what I try. This is ridiculous I used this app for my career as a photo editor and it updated and hasn’t worked since :(
annoying
by Kir76 on 2019/09/28 14:20
I used to live polarr and I still do, but recently I keep getting pop ups for me to try their premium things. you can’t close it out or anything. I will be going from applying a filter to adjust it and it will pop up right in the middle of it. if I hit any of the buttons on the pop up it will let me continue my edits but not let me save it because I’ve applied a premium option. so I have to start all over again and still get the pop ups. at this point, i might delete it
Bravo
by went the trolley on 2019/09/28 06:41
I have tried several photo enhancement apps. This one is awesome right out of the box. With so many options and functions to choose from, the possibilities are nearly endless. I would strongly recommend this app for those that love photos and the ability to touch them up. Please try it... you will love it ❤️
I’m having issues!!
by Maybee360 on 2019/09/27 20:08
Polarr used to be great, but now there are subscriptions and there’s no problem with that except now literally any feature I use AT ALL says I’m using pro features!! WTH
This is excellent.
by Scrivner7 on 2019/09/27 02:15
I’m no professional photographer, but this app offers the largest range of options when it comes to editing a photo. It’s so good that it made me send my first review of an app👌🏾
glitch!

Not ready for iOS 13...
by Big Dugger on 2019/09/24 13:38
Can’t count the bugs in this application since the update. It is useless, now. Before you consider raising your subscription price, maybe you should consider improving the stability of your product.

It’s really a helpful and easy to used editor application but unfortunately I don&#39;t know what happens to this app that It won’t working since I update my phone into a new ios 13.

i loved this app and all the filters but recently i can’t import qr codes from my camera roll and i’ve searched everywhere for a solution. i can’t even find a service site or something of that like. is there anything i can do? thx
Really strong photo editor.
by Trippalhealicks on 2019/09/15 23:32
This app rivals Adobe Lightroom. Only a couple things I would change. 1. Rename the “Brightness” slider to “Exposure” or retool it if these are indeed two different things...whatever. 2. The crop mode can be annoying, at times. Developer, please make the crop mode “sticky” so that it won’t allow you to crop outside of the desired aspect ratio when one is selected. Other than those two things, the app is fantastic. Highly recommended.
I love it so much
by valen7inaz716 on 2019/09/09 23:12
The free tools are great, even though they do have “pro” things, i can edit what i need and want with the free version.
Get it now.
by Rod101m8 on 2019/09/08 20:18
I&#39;ve never really been a fan of photo editing apps, but Polarr is hands down the greatest app for editing pictures that I&#39;ve ever used and I repeatedly go back to it on my iMac and my phone. It’s interface is amazing.
Give it a try
by GG Mila on 2019/09/03 20:22
I must confess that I have not used it a lot, but to edit some family photos and some landscape photos and Polarr went from being my complementary editing tool to be the first one to apply. It easy to used, very much like other editing tools, plus now you have option on save formats which allow you to save on storage space for those so important photos and much more give it a try you won’t regret it.
love the app!
by Works great 5 stars👑⭐ on 2019/08/29 05:03
but would it be possible to ever have an option for videos ?
Si trabaja con raw
by Reeld55 on 2019/08/27 05:06
Muy buena app sobre todo porque trabaja con archivos raw... menos con los de gopro.. deberas convertirlas
A good go-to
by thisisyourcaptsin on 2019/08/26 16:54
I’m an ex vsco user. I found polarr in 2017 then quickly upgraded to pro, and have been using it regularly ever since. The filters come in a wide variety and manually editing is quick and easy. Pretty intuitive user interface to top it off. On the customer support end, I’ve only had good experiences.
Amazing but one problem (For me)
by Shiner1230 on 2019/08/25 02:14
This app is great, you could share it with your friends! Buut there’s a problem for me, after creating my edits, I tried to save the filter and make it into a QR code but it couldn’t load, I couldn’t tell if it was the internet or it’s a bug
Not good at all.
by No use for a nickname! on 2019/08/21 18:42
The controls are so limited. I am assuming Apple patented all of the good features and sues anyone who tries to make a good app... For example there is a pixelate feature. You can only pixelate the entire photo or none of the photo. No options to crop it.... I have used android phones over 7 years old that have better options then this... sad.
Great free editing app!!!
by baryefraimov on 2019/08/21 15:34
When i first got the app i was so impressed with the all kinds of settings and filters and edits. I really like and really recommend getting this free app.
it’s amazing truly
by -tinted on 2019/08/20 03:09
The app really useful and all free
Stop forcing me to make an account
by MataNataM on 2019/08/20 01:09
Ok so I really really like this app but seriously, this isn’t a social media it’s a photo editing app. As of 5.5.12 you have to set up an account to be able to &#34;save edits as filter&#34;. Please stop forcing me to create an account. It’s annoying. Also, not related, but there used to be a little triangle on the top corner of an image to indicate it’s been edited, for whatever reason it’s gone. Can you bring that back?
A nice App
by Faramin1945 on 2019/08/17 02:15
It’s the first time which I give an app 5 star. Love it ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Finally!!!!
by Familyfirst2019 on 2019/08/14 23:06
This app is brilliant! Finally, an app that has the entire package. When it comes to editing iPhone DSLR-whatever. It beats most editing apps I&#39;ve used yet!
Used to love, but the new update messed everything up.
by Jinafire Demew on 2018/08/10 17:13
I’ve been using Polarr since late 2016, and for the most part it’s been pretty great, with a few bugs in between and issues with the quality, but the problems were fixed quite quickly. I purchased Polarr Pro’s selective adjustments in around 2017 and it worked fine, but recently with the new Polarr SO many new issues have risen. The first time I updated it to the new Polarr, it would not let me save any of my selective adjustments. Gradient, color masks, none of them would save. Sometimes it would crash, other times it wouldn’t even save as the filter I had filtered it as, but instead another filter I had previously made?? Recently, a few issues have been fixed but new problems have started. Everything including gradient and radial all work with my purchases but when I add the color scale to a color mask, it doesn’t save. The color mask is still there, but the actual color scale is zero. Please fix these issues, or bring back the old Polarr and work on the new one on the side. So many new issues that me and quite a few of my friends who have been using it for a long time are giving up on it.
Love the settings
by IMjunipa on 2018/01/13 06:06
I bumbled across this app in an earlier inception a few years ago and have watched it slowly, steadily improve, and noticed that the developers are constantly working on making upgrades then communicating those outright. This reason alone shows me a successful company behind the app. That being said, I am very happy with many of the filters and find each are well organized into categories making it easy to work with my landscape photos, however, I agree with another user’s feedback about the healing tool. I wish it was a little bit more precise and could offer more options such as where the healing section is copying from, radius, etc. On occasion I will run into a glitch where I have to shut down the program and restart in order to continue functioning. This often happens when I am using several filters. Overall I’m very happy and I would recommend Polarr Pro for anyone who wants to enhance their photos. Keep up the good work guys, I’m happy to have this in my app folder, and to be able to contribute my thoughts and experiences. I believe you read each and every comment and are endeavoring to respond when necessary.
Best editing app yet!
by Lana Ressie on 2018/11/21 19:00
I’ve tried and tested many editing apps, and since I don’t use the premium version, many of them weren’t good. The other apps were just so bad, the picture ended up looking overly saturated and super cheesy. The only way you could have edited well on those apps are if you used the premium feature, and they were expensive! After testing many apps and almost giving up, I found Polarr. The editing actually looks natural and pretty and the functions and tools are really easy to use. Ultimately, my pictures ended up looks beautiful! The only request or frustration I have with this app is that there is no home screen so the only pages you have is the photo you are editing, which bothers me a little. But in terms of the editing quality, this app is perfect for me!
great app but a few bugs
by @gyfueroa on 2019/01/09 08:28
i’ve been using polarr for over a year now and it’s always served me well. i’d been putting off writing a review for polarr for a good amount of time now though because polarr itself is a great app, i just thought my problem would’ve been mentioned by other users and been fixed by now, but my problem still exists. the app itself is very easy to use and has TONS of features to use for pretty much every type of photo. my problem is that after editing and exporting maybe 6 photos at a time (individually instead of with the batch export feature), when i try to open another picture polarr either freezes and crashes or very tightly crops the photo (usually when there is a face in the picture). i don’t think it has to do with the hardware polarr is being running on. this has been happening to me for a few months now on my ipad pro and even recently on a new iphone.
Great results but a few bugs
by P.mousse Esq. on 2017/11/07 18:06
For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it&#39;s implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job. The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can&#39;t use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn&#39;t perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I&#39;ve been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I&#39;ve tried.
A Favorite Editing App
by Lost in the feed on 2018/01/14 02:37
I am a bit of a photo editing app junkie, and had originally downloaded this app amid several others. I got so caught up in the other apps I didn’t spend much time and took it off my device. I noticed it on my cloud the other day, downloaded it and found exactly what I was looking for. Not only does it have the color modifying tools I was looking for (on most apps it is a paid feature) the filters are wonderful. I found the exact filter I was looking for to use on my Instagram, but I almost went with one of the filters in the Japanese photo set. It took a bit to figure out the navigation (and how to add tools to your tool bar) but I am so glad I took the time. I am not devoted to a single app, but this is now become one of my top three editors.
A PERSONAL FAVORITE
by sweetninje on 2018/02/04 00:49
Polar photo editing app is awesome! Without even feting into the paid version you get a ton of amazing options, filters, effects and tools! Believe me , these are not limited to the Instagram or Facebook or editing photoshop copycats! Polar is professional grade in quality, user interface, appearance and detail. Appreciated the prompts and helper which you can hide if you don’t need or dislike . I found It tremendously helpful. It’s not the easiest app, so I wouldn’t necessarily suggest it to someone not accustomed to some version of photo shop or another editing apps, but with with the helper option you can figure it out and deliver pro -level edited photographs. I am probably going to bite the bullet and purchase the pro version . It’s that good!
LOVE THIS APP!!!
by Sarah - House of Wend on 2018/05/04 07:16
I have been looking for a pro level photo editing program to use for all the photos I take as a travel blogger. I just was reluctant to jump on he lightroom bandwagon. After reading a ton of positive reviews about Polarr from photographers, I decided to give it a try. Within minutes I was hooked! It is such a powerful tool and the fact that you can use it across multiple platforms is HUGE! I initially had some trouble unlocking the pro features on my laptop that I paid for in the phone app. But within minutes of writing to support I got a response and within 24 hours they had fixed the kink. Can’t beat that! I’m so thrilled with this app and excited to master all of its amazing features!!!
Best app I could find but..
by Lipbitestyles on 2019/06/13 04:06
I have been using this app for a little over a year and everything has been perfect so far but recently I’ve started to notice a slight change or bug if you will. I click on the app and everything is fine when I edit a photo, I am a pro member, but when I click out and then back into that same photo, suddenly it’s super cropped to the point where there is barely anything to see. And it also will not let me save any filters I have created. Other times when I click into a photo I desire to edit, the screen goes black (sometimes it becomes white) and I have to restart the app. Please fix this bug and I will continue to use the app because it has become very frustrating. I rarely write reviews..
Amazing free app without adds that actually does stuff.
by MDtheAfroCat@DA on 2017/12/25 04:51
Great app that i’ve been using for ever a year now as my go too editor for pictures. The tools are easy to use and they all work well. Definitely worth the $20 for the pro features. The only problem i’ve had is working with the color mask on areas with large amounts of red, where I use exposure changes to make the effected area easier to see. All in all though it’s a powerful photo editor that will make anyone happy. Only feature it really needs to be perfect is a quick way to pull in other pictures to use as masks instead of using the watermark tool over and over again...which i’ve done before.
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
Pretty Good
by Aleena Marie on 2019/05/27 12:38
The features in this app are pretty great, actually- everything is in one place which is very practical. My only major annoyance is that you only get one free export a day without upgrading. The cost to upgrade is fairly reasonable, especially for what the app is- but I’d like it if we could export more than one picture a day with the free version. Even if it were like 3 a day, or maybe unlimited exports but without the option of choosing if it is saved as a png/jpeg/the quality etc. Other than that, you can get around just fine without upgrading and not feel terribly frustrated. It’s nice that the app doesn’t accost you demanding you upgrade every time you open it. Over all a pretty capable and easy to navigate photo editor.
Love the options but stop the upgrade ads!!
by jewel_and_stone on 2019/05/28 18:56
I really enjoyed using this app, it’s actually become my go-to editing app along side one other. I don’t even use the Pro features and my pics look awesome. But now I can’t even save my non-pro image without an ad coming up for me to either “Upgrade” or “Try Pro Features”. To get out of the ad (because there is no “X” button) I click “Upgrade” and it takes me to a page with options and prices. I can then click “X” out of that, but when I try to save my picture again it tells me I’m using Pro features and I cannot save the image without upgrading. It was a little annoying at first but now I legit cannot save ANYTHING. And I haven’t used a single Pro feature!! I’m so annoyed and irritated. I just want to use this app the way it’s supposed to be used, but the “Upgrade” ad keeps messing it up!
Lowers Photo Quality
by MEMBERS_ONLY on 2018/02/15 05:25
I really do love this app. I’ve been using it for quite some time now and i have to say it’s super easy to use and it’s honestly so different from other editing apps like VSCO or Afterlight, etc. However i find that when saving my edit to my camera role, it lowers the quality of the photo, which is very disappointing since the edit looks so amazing prior to saving it. It’s like i get a final result I’m happy with and when i save it and check the photo just saved, the quality is not as good as shown on the app itself. Because of this i started to use other editing apps, none of which allow me to create edits just like this app does. So please fix this as i really want to have good quality photos!!
STILL Problematic After Latest Update
by HollyDay on 2019/10/09 19:43
This app is SUCH A MESS. After multiple updates, developers still didn&#39;t get it right! Icons jumping or overlapping over each other, so one has to close the app, lose all edits, and re-open app and start from scratch. Photos automatically downgraded in quality and colouring on opening. Filters no longer adjustable. Face Tools randomly auto-changing things in the wrong way. Tool adjustment bars going in the opposite direction of what you&#39;re pushing it towards. Photos saving in much lower resolution, despite setting it to &#34;Best&#34; setting. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I wish I&#39;d never updated about 5 updates ago! A perfectly great app has turned into amateur rubbish. Bugs squashed? What a joke! What are you doing over there? With so many negative reviews, you have to know this is just really bad. Time to find a new app that actually works because this app has gone bye bye.
It’s about the $$$ already paid
by UnKnown Comic Hey on 2019/06/27 05:20
I already paid for this if I am not mistaken right after I got it when it came out or was on the APP Store. This is possibly another app that charges a one time fee for lifetime use of a pro version the goes to a subscription based service. If you are like me and have a bunch of hobbies and what not then use several to 30 or 50 apps to work and research or just view, it doesn’t take much to get a few hundred plus apps. It’s hard to keep up with who is change what when so you trust them to do the right thing and not cheat you. I am getting cheated left and right. I know I have paid for upgrades for this app for sure. I remember doing everything/pro version. I hit restore purchases and nothing. I will change my review to reflect the app performance when they fix it. I am not paying for something I already bought.
Pricing has me concerned
by TimBsTechTalk on 2018/05/12 09:04
The ubiquity of the new pricing model has me a bit concerned. Before subscriptions, you could at most pay $4.99 outright for an app like this. Now we are asked to rent the app $36 a year or $24 a year if you pay for a year. Even if you paid 5 in-app purchases for $1.99 when using the earlier model, you are still only spending $15 for owning the app out-right. If you plan to use the app for 3 years, you pay $72 to rent. That is 5 times the price and we are still only borrowing it. This subscription model is hard enough with movies and music, but to use this model for every app you purchase? I like trying different apps to see what developers are capable of offering. If I downloaded 30 apps a year using the subscription model, I can be expected to pay $720 a year - just to rent the apps. And that’s not including Mac apps. This is unadulterated greed. It’s a shame because this is a nice app and developers deserve to make a living, but not like this. Unfortunately, I now have to be very selective and I choose not to pay another subscription fee for filters. Maybe Apple’s next conference should be WWCC, a customer’s conference.
If it only would stop crashing. It makes me sad lol
by Crazymommy+5 on 2019/10/05 21:27
This is so far, my favorite editing app... almost. Long sigh. I do sports photography, I love it. This app does amazing edits. But just as soon as I think I’m done. It freezes and just zones out. Doesn’t close, it’s doesn’t do anything. Just goes blank. So, then I have to start allllll the way over, and pray it doesn’t crash again. Honestly, if it didn’t do that. I would rate it 5 stars, and subscribe for whatever. It would be amazing. It could use more text/font options. Those are a little lacking, and boring. I have shed a tear or three, because of the crashes. Debating on just getting rid of it. But I keep hoping it will be fixed. Please fix whatever is causing the freeze/crash. And I will subscribe for whatever amount you’re charging. And give it 5 stars.
Glitches but still great
by Alicia & the boys !!☺️ on 2019/01/12 07:15
I am learning how to use this app. I do get confused from time to time. But I’ve only been using it for about a week. The one thing that has drove me crazy is that it will crash out of nowhere. It doesn’t do it all the time just sometimes. I would love to be able to have all my photos on a homepage instead of them all having to be in my iPads camera roll. Just a thought but maybe adding a makeup/hair section would be great. I use this app on pictures for Pageant advertising. This would help correct people’s makeup. Just thought tho
Has almost everything!
by maxblack113 on 2019/05/12 12:53
Easily the most complete photo editor for iOS. It has every tool you’d ever need. Today I’m updating my review after the Polarr team finally added VERY long-awaited RAW support. I’m beyond excited that RAW support has been added, so I’ve added another star to my rating. Unfortunately, whatever RAW engine they’re using to load RAW photos is meh. When compared to other RAW photo editors, photos just seem to be missing clarity and Polarr simply can’t seem to pull the detail out of shadows and highlight. Final results pretty much always come out muddy and fuzzy. This a huge step in the right direction, but the current RAW engine is kind of unusable.
Bummer
by UpRocka on 2019/10/20 16:30
Lame... now Polarr charges for “batch export” when it used to be included in the free version? Everyone’s moving to these monthly payment structures. Do you guys even make money this way? I mean I fully get why you would opt for this vs a one time payment since you get to keep a more steady revenue coming in to help further develop the app... but who actually pays for these? Literally every app that demands a monthly fee to just use the core features I delete and I’ll wager to bet a good deal of other users are the same exact way. It’s a pointless exchange and really only serves the devs. I’d rather pay a slightly higher up front one time cost instead of being billed monthly for a simple feature add on. Really hope this business model dies off soon cuz it’s lame as fuuuuu.
Constant Pop-Ups and No ‘X’ Button
by squareroot3.14 on 2019/06/22 15:38
Listen, I understand that you need to promote your pro features for money’s sake, but it gets annoying when you can’t decline. It’s frustrating when it constantly pops up and the only two options are to either ‘try it’ or ‘upgrade’. You should give an option where you can press ‘no’ or ‘x’ to decline it overall. If you try the pro filter you can’t export the photo, so you have to go through and find what it gave you and get rid of it. (It’s especially annoying if it doesn’t have its own major option and is within another option. Ex: The denoise tool is within the detail button.) If you press ‘upgrade’ and then ‘x’ afterwords it still applies the feature, giving you the same problem as before. I was trying to overlook this previously, hoping that it would be fixed in a recent update, but it hasn’t changed. This gets really frustrating and makes it difficult to edit my photos. I would appreciate if this was looked into and if a solution to my problem was provided.
Updated to 5 stars! Thanks for fixing stability issues!
by fl3urdelis on 2019/05/28 23:15
Updated back to 5 stars. Thanks, devs, for fixing the stability issues! No more app crashes = much better editing workflow. Polarr has been my go-to mobile editing app for YEARS and it has so much amazing functionality packed into an app. I love the curves and HSL adjustment, as well as the ability to save filters. I’ve used this app extensively for travel photography, which has allowed me to leave my computer (and my copy of Photoshop CS6) at home when backpacking. I love this app because it has something for everyone. Do you want to make quick and easy edits? Sure, use a filter, or save your edits as a filter, or use the auto editing mode. But if you’re like me and want full creative control of your imagery, this app has SO much fine-tuning functionality, even in the free version. I’ve recommended this app to so many of my photographer friends and they all loved it as well!
Great photo app and good to it's loyal customers
by F9X on 2018/05/13 08:08
About a year and a half ago I paid for the app, it&#39;s the only app I use for my photographs, i&#39;ve always love the filters and the choices I can do to make my photographs better. I&#39;m not a photographer in anyway but polarr makes it easy brings the best out of my photographs. I&#39;m also very appreciative that they&#39;re not screwing the current customer base who have supported the app over the years. In return I&#39;ve always recommend at the app when people ask me what do I use for my photographs, people to buy it. Thank you once again for a great app.
Having to restore purchase several times per day.
by JMLCMark on 2018/12/28 14:49
I like the app itself. It is a great app, and usually works very well. I can live with the occasional crashes when applying blur because it usually works after a restart or two. The big problem for me is that with a recent update (5.3.0), the app wanted me to pay for a subscription. I bought Polarr before the subscription model because they announced that if you bought it at that time, as an early supporter, you’d have the app for free for life. I understand the subscription model, but I also did expect them to keep their word. I am hopeful that this is just a bug.
Hands down the best photo editing app
by Apploverreview on 2017/12/01 18:20
I use manyyyy photo apps and I always go back to Polarr because it has the best features to edit your photo. There are a lot of ways to bring out the best of your photo and Polarr does that for sure, I have been using this app for so many years and it only keeps updating and is getting better and better. Just download and play around with it, don’t be intimidated by the many options it has, it definitely will give you a professional editing power that other apps don’t give.
Glitchy
by Dpana90 on 2018/10/11 18:52
I’m using 2017 iPad and for some reason I can only edit one picture; then I have to close/reset the app so I can edit another.. otherwise it will be so glitchy for the second pic. Even in the first pic it can get really glitchy. Also, there’s a problem when I save a pic, it can no longer be edited in the Photos app. It says “Cannot Download Photo: There was an erro downloading this photo from iCloud Photos. Please try again later.” I thought that I didn’t had enough space in the clouds but no, I have plenty of space. We need a huge bug fix update. This is my favorite app which I paid for the premium features. This app is awesome when it works.
it was amazing but now it’s not
by natalicsux on 2019/04/30 07:19
it’s an amazing app, please don’t get me wrong. that’s why i gave it a fair two stars. the app crashes every time, three weeks and still not update for the bugs. deletes my overlays and i have to constant reupload them. then, my filters get all messed up and not the way they usually are ( they get darker and some effects get taken off ) so it scared me one time but i only just had to close and open the app THREE TIMES. polarr customer support and the developers see these comments but still don’t make any changes and ask to email them for more info. this is the best that i can write. stop telling us to email you for more info when you are already aware since every body is writing the same kind of reviews. WE NEED AN UPDATE TO FIX THE BUGS!
Love the App but Re-select/edit issue
by GrantedElijah on 2019/06/12 18:05
Ive loved this app for some years now, but theres been this bug thats been there since ive had the app that I seriously need fixed, When you leave a picture after editing it already and click on the picture again, it OVER saturated your picture to a ridiculous point and changes some of your settings and the only way to get it back to normal is by reverting back to normal and re-editing it or by just not saving it again, this has been my biggest issue with the app since day 1 PLEASE fix it and this app would be perfect!
I’m not liking this app anymore.
by WingedOracle on 2019/01/20 04:26
It was working perfectly the first few days. I even went pro and got a subscription. But now it logs me out the second I log in and the app continues to ask me to upgrade when I did weeks ago. Now every time I use the filters it takes away a very important part, leaving my pictures blurry. I tried looking up what’s wrong with it but it doesn’t seem to be doing the same to anyone else I know using the app. I don’t think I want to renew my subscription next month.
I Need Support with this!!!
by I<31Dforlife!!<3 on 2017/10/21 20:39
so I’ve been using this app for 3 months now, i’ve been able to save my custom filters. when It was updated about a month ago, I lost about 200+ filters. It took forever to restore them and i couldn’t even get them all back. Super inconvenient. It also happened with a ton of other people.... for the past week whenever I open the app, my filters are gone again. I keep trying to upload them back on, but they just keep deleting from the app when i open it up the next day....besides that the app is great, but I really need help with this...
HIGHLY RECCOMEND
by Walshy 03 on 2018/02/28 04:49
This app is honestly amazing. I downloading it thinking “ What could this app truly do if it’s free” well let me tell you that this app does way more than you’d expect. Usually apps that are free and do photo editing make you pay for all these filters to edit your picture but this app gives you tons to chose from and a bunch, A BUNCH of options to customize your picture as well. And you can add your own watermark, save the photo in whatever setting you’d like (PNG is most common). This is the best FREE photo editing app by far
Great, but....
by Magoose Reviews on 2018/12/19 21:19
This app has done me well on editing pictures for quite a while now (coming on 2 years). I’ve had the pro adjustments for almost all of that time, and I can say with certainty that charging so much for the filters and tools isn’t necessary. The new subscription feature just essentially took away all of my unlocked tools and features, saying that I needed an account and the pro plan to continue using. Unless you’re willing to spend almost $30 a year on a mobile app, just use the base version or don’t even bother with this app.
Great app
by SidBurkePhotos on 2019/02/13 04:14
I’m a professional photographer and I love this app for so many reason 1. It helps to adjust coloring on photo’s and the clarity of your photo. 2. The tools are easy to use they are very simple. 3. As a professional photographer I have my own water mark and Polarr allows me to use it in the app. I really love this app I have had it crash on me mid editing but when I open it back up the photo I was working on pops right back up and right where I was editing and I don’t have to start all over again it’s a great app
Great, But Annoying
by Tutu girl 5000 on 2019/05/15 03:52
I’ve been using polarr for about a year now but since you started promoting the pro version so frequently, the app has been so difficult to use. Trying to remove a filter or change a filter results in multiple pro ads coming up that you can’t exit out of, and trying to save an edited photo is very annoying because the app says you’re using pro features so you can’t save the photo, even though you weren’t using any at all. The app would be perfect if the pro ads were less restricting and frequent.
Amazing App, But....
by Highly frustrated customer on 2017/11/21 00:45
I have loved using polarr for over a year now. It is so helpful to edit photos. However, for the past few weeks, it has been very difficult to use. It crashes often, and I can hardly get more than a few things done in one sitting. This is very upsetting, as polarr is by far the best photo editing app available. I have an iPhone 5s, by the way. I would appreciate this problem be fixed so I will able to return to utilizing my favorite photo editor.
Move of previously included of features to “Paid” has me worried.
by B5BAR on 2019/10/27 23:04
I was onboard and support the idea of devs making money for some of the features that I have not tapped into yet, however the move of some features that pulled me into Polar (Batch processing) now being subscription based, feels like a bait and switch tactic. This is hands down the best photo editing application on iOS, however I worry whenever devs move features “upscale” and charge more to keep key functionality unlocked. I subscribed to paid now (I took the bait devs), but what is stopping this dev team from making the features I use and need a “higher tier” subscription, at a higher price, without warning?
2 Pros or 1?
by PhelineCat on 2019/11/24 17:42
Before I dive in again I wish apps were required to be clear on what in-app purchases were getting me and what evil subscriptions do. It’s an investment of time to figure out what’s different than what I have, what’s fluff, what maybe I’ve been looking for but if I can’t tell what the payment structure is I’m likely to not bother. Plus subscription costs … $2/mo v $1/mo makes a huge difference and you’re certain to get more than 2x the subscribers with half the cost. $10/annually floods you with them. Don’t be greedy. Look at the industry numbers. I did.
VERY DISAPPOINTED!
by mekenziephotography on 2018/12/25 22:06
I have used pollar for a very long time &amp; I have loved it, however it has started to glitch on my laptop &amp; my phone!! I use the pro version(the one you pay for) and I don’t like the fact that I’m paying for something that isn’t working properly. Pollar has been great but with the glitches I can’t edit like I used to. It does things like close me out, crops my photos when I’m not trying to, doesn’t save my edits &amp; much more:(. It has started to make my phone over heat &amp; glitch so I had to part with it. I hope that these things can be fixed. I’m very sad that I am being forced to part w it.
Love this app but it’s stopped working.
by @shadowginger on 2018/05/17 16:12
I really really love this app, it is so easy to use and it’s the only app I’ve found that has a clarity tool, and that is the best feature on this app. However a few days ago it stopped working, when I tap on a photo to edit it, the whole screen goes gray and won’t let me do anything. I have tried everything, I’ve restarted my phone and deleted the app and re-downloaded it but nothing. Please fix this I love this app so much.
Why is this?
by FroadnRoller on 2019/11/02 13:05
Long time user... suddenly the picture disappears. Is there a vanishing effect or setting? Id live to get all that time back. Its the only app worth actually buying. Linking everything to Apple to make a purchase, id rather go to the dentist. I have a big project for my grandfather to do and time isn’t exactly plentiful.... And i need to reup on my subscription too. Pressure is on Polarr! Comp the subscription fix the disappearing act. My time, user time super valuable. No compensations for the lost amounts. Im calling it in now. Reparations. Not 1 problem for years, now its a game of chicken. Next platform update ad auto save. Thank you.🧸
Amazing features but laggy
by Giorg6244 on 2018/03/10 23:38
Polarr is probably one of the best free photo editing apps. It has a lot of useful features like blur brush, curves, and good color editing. However, it often seems like it can’t handle its own features. Whenever I use it for an extended amount of time (over 10 min editing) it starts to glitch - especially when I use the blur brush. It gets so laggy to the point where closing out the app and letting it rest doesn’t even fix it right away. Really disappointing because it makes the app very hard to use sometimes. If that weren’t a problem the app would be perfect.
I usually love this app but...
by pipipinoboy on 2019/07/07 06:33
This app is usually great, I use it to edit my photos all the time and used to have no issues, however recently whenever I’d go back to edit a picture or when I would use the history tool, there would be this glitch where the photo will crop to someone’s face and I wouldn’t be able to go back to the edited photo. I hope the devs will fix this soon it’s super annoying. Otherwise the app is great tho, it gives so many options for editing especially for a free app!
Almost there
by 7 billion people on 2019/08/02 00:23
Amazing app! There are so many great features in this app. It is a must try for serious photo editors. Just needs three thing for me to subscribe and become a huge advocate. 1. RAW editing - I know its coming so yay! 2. Better Export options - needs Tiff, 16bit, and higher quality jpeg. The jpeg compression is way to aggressive. It ditches 60-70% of the data on the best setting. 3. Please make the spot healing tool easier to use. It would be much better if we did not have to move, resize the circles, and then press a check mark to remove each imperfection in the skin. This get labor intensive quick when someone has a lot of acne. We should be able to just color over the imperfection and done. Please please please add these things 🙏🏼 I read through your website. You guys are awesome! I love where this company is going!
Give it a try
by GG Mila on 2019/09/03 20:22
I must confess that I have not used it a lot, but to edit some family photos and some landscape photos and Polarr went from being my complementary editing tool to be the first one to apply. It easy to used, very much like other editing tools, plus now you have option on save formats which allow you to save on storage space for those so important photos and much more give it a try you won’t regret it.
My opinion
by Jeongmo on 2019/10/30 21:20
I love the app, I&#39;ve been using it for like a month noe and I don&#39;t have any issues with it and by far it&#39;s one of my favorites in filters, the filters look really smooth and everything is perfect it has a nice setting to understand better the use of it, but in my opinion if the app had the option to add filters to gifs it would be amazing for real. Overall the app is a top five and I can bet everyone will live it.
Probably the Best!
by Stevearcher on 2017/11/18 01:40
In an era of strongly competitive photo editing software for iOS (finally!), Polarr is the best I&#39;ve found. And I own virtually all of them, including subscription-based. As a former longtime Mac Photoshop user, I gradually accustomed myself to the very different iOS interface with Photoforge 2, a great global adjustment app eventually abandoned by its developer. Polarr is now a more powerful tool with truly ingenious simplicity. But it IS necessary to send a little time learning all of Polarr&#39;s shortcuts! It is worth it!
My go-to mobile editor
by CoCuGi on 2018/01/15 03:23
Sleek but powerful in a word. Quick bug fixes, including those on previous versions of iOS is AMAZING. It does lack some, at least free, features including dual exposure, masking and other region specific editing capabilities that competitors have. Oddly enough, there doesn&#39;t seem to be any way to completely delete edits, and a photo is marked as edited even if you only view it on the app. Overall, it has some quirks but I would recommend after using it for about a year
Pretty Good But Not Excellent Yet
by kdcltgrl69 on 2018/04/02 16:15
I downloaded this app to help me edit concert photography. It’s a good tool for adding and enhancing color, correcting flaws and other minimal fixes. My only issue with the app is when you’re in the process of editing a photo, the screen &amp; buttons freezes and you have to exit the app and go back in. This makes the editing process very time consuming, especially when you’re editing 20 or more photos. If they continue to work out freezing screen and a few other bugs, this app could be a photographer’s dream.
