Keeps Crashing! Ugh.
by Fhdjdjdkkddkkdkdkd on 2019/10/19 00:38
The app constantly crashes each time I select a photo to edit. Polarr is my number one go-to app for filters and now it’s messing up, just great! Please fix this bug with a NECESSARY update because the other ones don’t seem to do anything but make it worse. The bugs need to stop. Please fix this issue because I pay for the subscription and I don’t want to waste my money for an app that doesn’t even work. Thanks.
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!
NEEDS Update ASAP
by mebejessie on 2019/10/16 15:22
QR code not working, getting a weird error to check my internet but it’s working fine and the signal is strong. Photos won’t open now App keeps crashing
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.
I must admit the app is superb..
by @Sigil on 2019/10/12 23:57
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.
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'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.
Use to be good
by taylorbrandi82 on 2019/10/05 04:18
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.
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!
by hoho siwa on 2019/09/26 19:53
i love the app but i cant open any photos up.
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.
Ios 13
by Nahid780000 on 2019/09/23 13:51
Hi I updated my phone to ios 13 and also updated the app to the recent version but I still have problems using it.It doesn’t open any pics.It doesn’t even get to the editing part.just sticks on the “loading the pic”part.Can u please fix it?

This app is amazing
by this app is trash🗑 on 2019/09/22 03:03
This is such a great app some apps are to complicated and don’t have the things your looking for but this app has EVERYTHING even if you can’t afford premium you can still make amazing vids and the premium is not that expensive

by usernameisdead on 2019/09/21 03:56
I absolutely loves this app, not only about the features but also the results. It’s really a helpful and easy to used editor application but unfortunately I don't know what happens to this app that It won’t working since I update my phone into a new ios 13. I can’t open the picture that I want to edit and it get stuck in loading. Would you please help to fix this app asap? Thankyou in advance🥰🙏🏻
I’m kind of having a little problem
by Wazzup08 on 2019/09/21 01:55
I usually love this app because I get to make my own filters I can, but recently the app just goes all black on me when I’m trying to edit some photos and I just used it earlier when it was working all fine! Please fix this :((
lovely app (slight bug problem?)
by Minecraftmaster321 on 2019/09/20 23:16
i love this app, i really do! but ever since i updated the app it’s been glitching out and not letting me edit my pictures? it’s been a few hours and not resolved, i’m hoping that’s fixed. though overall, good experience!

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.
Lovvee it
by Julián Baby on 2019/09/10 19:02
The best so for editing my photos they look 🙌 amazing
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!
Help
by naima4757 on 2019/08/13 09:01
hey so I’ve an iphone 6s, iOs 12.4 and I cannot download this app. I have been using this app for almost 5 years now. Why won’t it download?
Good editing, annoying bugs
by Josie 🐝 on 2019/08/13 00:30
The newest update has been giving me incredibly annoying glitches, like the effect intensities changing when I click away, sliders moving way too far, and – most annoyingly – when I open up a photo to save it, all the effects being erased, making me have to start from scratch. I like this app, but these bugs are *very* inconvenient.
What happened to my subscription
by yumekou on 2019/08/12 00:44
I’m trying edit these people photos but know it’s saying imma have to buy the yearly plan again? Is this a bug? Please fix soon
Um
by kalelsalad on 2019/08/10 20:40
okay, i like how the app is getting better and better with the updates. but something weird has been happening where borders are being added to my photos when i add my filters which is something i do NOT like at all. please fix!
USEFUL

Fantastic app
U BROKE THE PROMISE
by Татьяна Рогова on 2019/08/08 19:42
I love Polarr App, it for sure my favorite, my the one for editing on my phone! And ones upon a time, I have bought it for $20! Then, you grow to the new level and created the montly subscription! But you have PROMISED, it’s for new members! For those who already purchased the app nothing be changed! So! What I see now?!! You force me to buy "monthly thing" too!! You says: "Yes, you have a Pro version but you allow edit and downloading the only one photo per day by using a pro tools!" Really? No thanks! I want my money back then, AND after, maybe, I will think about continue work with u guys! Although, no one wants work with the liars!
Great for raw images
by Jennyskins on 2019/08/08 07:39
Thanks for working so quickly to fix bugs. Works great now! I really love all the masking tools that have been added!

Has every feature I never knew I needed
by Mico :) on 2019/08/05 03:29
Impressed with how many included features are in the app. Love the effects.
Easy app
by Atumnn on 2019/08/04 04:20
It's such an easy to use app but you can still do super detail things just there made easier to understand
Love but could you add...
by drizzyruby on 2019/08/04 00:41
Alright this app is a god send. I use this app 24/7 for filtering ALL my pictures. You know what would be helpful? Adding a search bar to search for filters! I have over 800 filters and it's hard finding some and i can't just favourite all of them or my space will get cluttered! Please consider adding a search bar in the near future, otherwise keep up the great work!!
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!
Great for editing but...
by Emadams2 on 2019/07/27 19:36
This app used to be amazing, I used it on a daily basis for editing (I still do) But now, there are a lot of bugs like filters I save keep on getting deleted when I re open the app after closing it and it keeps on zooming in on photos making it to where I can’t edit them without having to re screenshot the photo and I do not want to have to screenshot a scene 20 times just to i can put a dang filter on it. Please fix the zooming in bug because it’s been happening for a while and it is very annoying.
the effects

Charged for Subscription but app will not update
by Guywithpaint on 2019/07/25 03:06
I have not been able to access the premium filters that come with the annual subscription since the last update. I was just charged again for the subscription and I still cannot access the premium upgraded filters. How do I get a refund?!?!

A New Favorite
by 1234231234244747475857389205738295710348375 on 2019/07/22 04:28
I have tried many, many photo editing apps and have been let down again and again. When my favorite photo editing app was removed from the App Store, I downloaded a bunch I had never tried in desperation. Polarr has by far been the best photo editing app I have ever used. I’m still getting the hang of it, but I love it and it has reignited my interest in photography and editing. 100% worth the money thus far.
:(
by mamirere on 2019/07/20 15:13
i absolutely hate that free users can’t save a photo without a limit. we use to be able to and that was great. paying to save a photo is going a little too overboard because it’s like polarr devs are forcing us to purchase the premium features... i’m disappointed.
Could be better
by CheesyMary on 2019/07/19 07:13
Stop asking me to upgrade to use Gradient tool !!! I'm not gonna use it!! I'm not gonna waste my money on anything i literally have to press "try gradient tool now" and nothing else to get that pop up out. It's annoying pls stop :( I love the filters and all and it's functions but i hate having to press the same button over and over again just to do a single thing to a picture that has nothing to do with the Gradient Tool
For photo nerds out there
by shutthefuckupandplay on 2019/07/15 23:39
This is a fun tool for editing photos off your iPhone.
it’s great but there’s an issue
by trashcan11 on 2019/07/11 13:27
So I’ve recently discovered this app and I gotta say I’m impressed. My photos look great, but there’s one issue. Every time I change filters there’s this white dot that just appears and i can’t take it off the photo. really annoying but i’d appreciate it if you fix that.
Bring back the good Polarr
by Why Ads!!! on 2019/07/09 21:54
None of my edits are saved in the photos. Can't tell which photos have been edited because the blue corner piece isn't there anymore And honestly really hate the layout for when you choose what photo to edit. I think the he black border is too thick, but whatever. Really don't want to use Adobe's Lightroom.
I usually love this app but...

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!
Why can’t I save my image..
by blackstangirl on 2019/07/07 05:16
It keeps telling me I don’t have anymore free exports and I can’t pay for premium. It’s not fair to me being broke and the filters I use is from people who make them.
Issue with account
by Annoyed34828283 on 2019/07/05 21:59
Why do I keep getting logged out of my polarr pro account every 30 minutes of using the app?
Great Photo App
by Livie VH on 2019/07/01 15:24
This app is great for editing photos ! It can make them into something totally new and revamped. I specifically use Polarr when i’m editing pictures for my instagram . Highly recommend. Even though there are some controls that cost money , it’s worth it.
i can't use it anymore
by luiza campelo on 2019/06/28 20:56
i can't edit my photos cuz when I click on a photo from my gallery the screen turns black and the app turns off alone :/
app keeps crashing
by jckfh on 2019/06/28 20:55
i love this app, and as a fan account owner, i use it to put filters on my pictures. however, lately, whenever i try to open a picture, the app crashes, i’ve tried exiting the app, force quitting the app, updating the app, and even restarting my phone, but nothing will work.
help!
by c0c0mele on 2019/06/28 20:51
its a really good app and i love it but the only problem for me is that when i try to pick a picture to put a filter is takes me out :(
Crashes when I try to filter a picture
by Eurydice Murphy on 2019/06/28 20:42
I have used this app before, and it has worked fine, but now it crashes whenever I try to open a picture, and the app is now useless to me. Please fix this bug.
Needs Fixing!
by Harley Quinn_:o) on 2019/06/28 20:22
The app is amazing, don’t get me wrong. But, today, when I tried getting into the app, it would take me back out. I’ve been trying and trying but it just isn’t working. The app use to be great!
constantly crashing
by 🌴🦋🚀 on 2019/06/28 19:54
the app was fine until maybe a month ago. now when i try to edit a picture as soon as i try to open the picture, the app crashes and shuts down. i wanted to back up my filters before i deleted and reinstalled but it won’t even let me do that. please fix.
used to be great
by EngelG72 on 2019/06/28 19:35
the app crashes now every time i try to edit a photo; it was perfectly fine a few weeks ago, but now, once i tap into the app, and then tap on the picture i want to edit, the screen goes black and exits out back into the homescreen :/

Amazing app but..
by FreddyLover on 2019/06/28 18:47
Lately, whenever I enter into Polarr- I usually click on the photo I want to edit but the entire app just ends up crashing. I close it, reopen it, I've even deleted it and it still crashes. This needs to be fixed!

the updates make the app so hard to use, there is so many mess ups and bugs but overall it’s an okay app.
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!!!
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 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..
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
VERY DISAPPOINTED!
by mekenziephotography on 2018/12/25 22:06
I have used pollar for a very long time & I have loved it, however it has started to glitch on my laptop & 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 & much more:(. It has started to make my phone over heat & 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.
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.
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'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'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'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 & 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.
Amazing Versatility
by Jayla99999 on 2019/02/12 19:23
I’ve been an avid Polarr user for a while. I’ve had the free version, then subscribed to Polarr Pro. What I love about Polarr is its adaptability. I can quickly edit a selfie on my phone, or fine tune my photography on my computer. Rarely, the app will freeze, or crash, but these bugs are minimal. I haven’t experienced any problems with the desktop version. For such a great price (Pro or free), the software is powerful, and encompasses all my editing needs.
Awesome! beware file renaming.
by AntVasquez on 2018/12/21 18:21
Perfect for a quick out of camera mobile edit! I’ll generally use the cloud overlay on while the go! This app unlike most allows to keep your original image file size. The only downside is the file is renamed adding Polaar to the file name. The workaround is to download yet another app to delete the file rename. So... -> WiFi photograph to mobile device -> light room -> polaar -> app to change file rename. And imagine is ready to go! Awesome for on the spot quick & easy editing.
A New Favorite
by 1234231234244747475857389205738295710348375 on 2019/07/22 04:28
I have tried many, many photo editing apps and have been let down again and again. When my favorite photo editing app was removed from the App Store, I downloaded a bunch I had never tried in desperation. Polarr has by far been the best photo editing app I have ever used. I’m still getting the hang of it, but I love it and it has reignited my interest in photography and editing. 100% worth the money thus far.
Greedy just like Adobe!!!
by SPURS#1...Always on 2018/11/04 01:42
I’ve been using the standard version and was thinking of upgrading to pro if it was a one time purchase. But sadly due to greed, they have gone the way of Adobe with a subscription model. I encourage everyone in the world to not pay for subscription software no matter what company or software it is. If no one paid for Adobe Photoshop subscription then they would only have 2 choices, go out of business or sell it as a one time purchase. I don’t think Adobe would choose the first option so therefore we the consumers win!! When more stupid people start realizing that then Photoshop, Polarr & the rest would be a one time purchase.
Great for editing but...
by Emadams2 on 2019/07/27 19:36
This app used to be amazing, I used it on a daily basis for editing (I still do) But now, there are a lot of bugs like filters I save keep on getting deleted when I re open the app after closing it and it keeps on zooming in on photos making it to where I can’t edit them without having to re screenshot the photo and I do not want to have to screenshot a scene 20 times just to i can put a dang filter on it. Please fix the zooming in bug because it’s been happening for a while and it is very annoying.
This new update does not save changes!
by Ryanmelendez93 on 2019/05/14 00:59
On the old version of Polarr, if you edited a photo and saved it, you can return to that photo after its exported and make further changes. Now in this new update, when you export a photo, it flattens your changes, and when you go back to that photo to make changes, it places all of your effects ON TOP OF the edited picture, essentially putting double the effects on your image, rather than letting you make adjustments. This is a huge issue now, and may make me cancel my subscription and go elsewhere. This needs to be fixed!

Keeps Crashing! Ugh.
by Fhdjdjdkkddkkdkdkd on 2019/10/19 00:38
The app constantly crashes each time I select a photo to edit. Polarr is my number one go-to app for filters and now it’s messing up, just great! Please fix this bug with a NECESSARY update because the other ones don’t seem to do anything but make it worse. The bugs need to stop. Please fix this issue because I pay for the subscription and I don’t want to waste my money for an app that doesn’t even work. Thanks.
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!
NEEDS Update ASAP
by mebejessie on 2019/10/16 15:22
QR code not working, getting a weird error to check my internet but it’s working fine and the signal is strong. Photos won’t open now App keeps crashing
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.
I must admit the app is superb..
by @Sigil on 2019/10/12 23:57
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.
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'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.
Use to be good
by taylorbrandi82 on 2019/10/05 04:18
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.
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!
by hoho siwa on 2019/09/26 19:53
i love the app but i cant open any photos up.
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.

This app is amazing
by this app is trash🗑 on 2019/09/22 03:03
This is such a great app some apps are to complicated and don’t have the things your looking for but this app has EVERYTHING even if you can’t afford premium you can still make amazing vids and the premium is not that expensive

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.
Lovvee it
by Julián Baby on 2019/09/10 19:02

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

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!
Help
by naima4757 on 2019/08/13 09:01
hey so I’ve an iphone 6s, iOs 12.4 and I cannot download this app. I have been using this app for almost 5 years now. Why won’t it download?
Good editing, annoying bugs
by Josie 🐝 on 2019/08/13 00:30
The newest update has been giving me incredibly annoying glitches, like the effect intensities changing when I click away, sliders moving way too far, and – most annoyingly – when I open up a photo to save it, all the effects being erased, making me have to start from scratch. I like this app, but these bugs are *very* inconvenient.
What happened to my subscription
by yumekou on 2019/08/12 00:44
I’m trying edit these people photos but know it’s saying imma have to buy the yearly plan again? Is this a bug? Please fix soon
Um
by kalelsalad on 2019/08/10 20:40
okay, i like how the app is getting better and better with the updates. but something weird has been happening where borders are being added to my photos when i add my filters which is something i do NOT like at all. please fix!
USEFUL

Fantastic app
U BROKE THE PROMISE
by Татьяна Рогова on 2019/08/08 19:42
I love Polarr App, it for sure my favorite, my the one for editing on my phone! And ones upon a time, I have bought it for $20! Then, you grow to the new level and created the montly subscription! But you have PROMISED, it’s for new members! For those who already purchased the app nothing be changed! So! What I see now?!! You force me to buy "monthly thing" too!! You says: "Yes, you have a Pro version but you allow edit and downloading the only one photo per day by using a pro tools!" Really? No thanks! I want my money back then, AND after, maybe, I will think about continue work with u guys! Although, no one wants work with the liars!
Great for raw images
by Jennyskins on 2019/08/08 07:39
Thanks for working so quickly to fix bugs. Works great now! I really love all the masking tools that have been added!

Impressed with how many included features are in the app. Love the effects.
Easy app
by Atumnn on 2019/08/04 04:20
It's such an easy to use app but you can still do super detail things just there made easier to understand
Love but could you add...
by drizzyruby on 2019/08/04 00:41
Alright this app is a god send. I use this app 24/7 for filtering ALL my pictures. You know what would be helpful? Adding a search bar to search for filters! I have over 800 filters and it's hard finding some and i can't just favourite all of them or my space will get cluttered! Please consider adding a search bar in the near future, otherwise keep up the great work!!
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!
Great for editing but...
by Emadams2 on 2019/07/27 19:36
This app used to be amazing, I used it on a daily basis for editing (I still do) But now, there are a lot of bugs like filters I save keep on getting deleted when I re open the app after closing it and it keeps on zooming in on photos making it to where I can’t edit them without having to re screenshot the photo and I do not want to have to screenshot a scene 20 times just to i can put a dang filter on it. Please fix the zooming in bug because it’s been happening for a while and it is very annoying.

I have tried many, many photo editing apps and have been let down again and again. When my favorite photo editing app was removed from the App Store, I downloaded a bunch I had never tried in desperation. Polarr has by far been the best photo editing app I have ever used. I’m still getting the hang of it, but I love it and it has reignited my interest in photography and editing. 100% worth the money thus far.
:(
by mamirere on 2019/07/20 15:13
i absolutely hate that free users can’t save a photo without a limit. we use to be able to and that was great. paying to save a photo is going a little too overboard because it’s like polarr devs are forcing us to purchase the premium features... i’m disappointed.
Could be better
by CheesyMary on 2019/07/19 07:13
Stop asking me to upgrade to use Gradient tool !!! I'm not gonna use it!! I'm not gonna waste my money on anything i literally have to press "try gradient tool now" and nothing else to get that pop up out. It's annoying pls stop :( I love the filters and all and it's functions but i hate having to press the same button over and over again just to do a single thing to a picture that has nothing to do with the Gradient Tool
For photo nerds out there
by shutthefuckupandplay on 2019/07/15 23:39
This is a fun tool for editing photos off your iPhone.
it’s great but there’s an issue
by trashcan11 on 2019/07/11 13:27
So I’ve recently discovered this app and I gotta say I’m impressed. My photos look great, but there’s one issue. Every time I change filters there’s this white dot that just appears and i can’t take it off the photo. really annoying but i’d appreciate it if you fix that.
Bring back the good Polarr
by Why Ads!!! on 2019/07/09 21:54
None of my edits are saved in the photos. Can't tell which photos have been edited because the blue corner piece isn't there anymore And honestly really hate the layout for when you choose what photo to edit. I think the he black border is too thick, but whatever. Really don't want to use Adobe's Lightroom.
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!
Why can’t I save my image..
by blackstangirl on 2019/07/07 05:16
It keeps telling me I don’t have anymore free exports and I can’t pay for premium. It’s not fair to me being broke and the filters I use is from people who make them.
Issue with account
by Annoyed34828283 on 2019/07/05 21:59
Why do I keep getting logged out of my polarr pro account every 30 minutes of using the app?
Great Photo App
by Livie VH on 2019/07/01 15:24
This app is great for editing photos ! It can make them into something totally new and revamped. I specifically use Polarr when i’m editing pictures for my instagram . Highly recommend. Even though there are some controls that cost money , it’s worth it.
i can't use it anymore

i love this app, and as a fan account owner, i use it to put filters on my pictures. however, lately, whenever i try to open a picture, the app crashes, i’ve tried exiting the app, force quitting the app, updating the app, and even restarting my phone, but nothing will work.

Crashes when I try to filter a picture

by 🌴🦋🚀 on 2019/06/28 19:54
the app was fine until maybe a month ago. now when i try to edit a picture as soon as i try to open the picture, the app crashes and shuts down. i wanted to back up my filters before i deleted and reinstalled but it won’t even let me do that. please fix.
used to be great
by EngelG72 on 2019/06/28 19:35

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!!!
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 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..
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
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.
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.
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.
Has almost everything!

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
VERY DISAPPOINTED!
by mekenziephotography on 2018/12/25 22:06
I have used pollar for a very long time & I have loved it, however it has started to glitch on my laptop & 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 & much more:(. It has started to make my phone over heat & 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.
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.
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'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'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'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 & 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.
Amazing Versatility
by Jayla99999 on 2019/02/12 19:23
I’ve been an avid Polarr user for a while. I’ve had the free version, then subscribed to Polarr Pro. What I love about Polarr is its adaptability. I can quickly edit a selfie on my phone, or fine tune my photography on my computer. Rarely, the app will freeze, or crash, but these bugs are minimal. I haven’t experienced any problems with the desktop version. For such a great price (Pro or free), the software is powerful, and encompasses all my editing needs.
Awesome! beware file renaming.
by AntVasquez on 2018/12/21 18:21
Perfect for a quick out of camera mobile edit! I’ll generally use the cloud overlay on while the go! This app unlike most allows to keep your original image file size. The only downside is the file is renamed adding Polaar to the file name. The workaround is to download yet another app to delete the file rename. So... -> WiFi photograph to mobile device -> light room -> polaar -> app to change file rename. And imagine is ready to go! Awesome for on the spot quick & easy editing.
A New Favorite
by 1234231234244747475857389205738295710348375 on 2019/07/22 04:28
I have tried many, many photo editing apps and have been let down again and again. When my favorite photo editing app was removed from the App Store, I downloaded a bunch I had never tried in desperation. Polarr has by far been the best photo editing app I have ever used. I’m still getting the hang of it, but I love it and it has reignited my interest in photography and editing. 100% worth the money thus far.
Greedy just like Adobe!!!
by SPURS#1...Always on 2018/11/04 01:42
I’ve been using the standard version and was thinking of upgrading to pro if it was a one time purchase. But sadly due to greed, they have gone the way of Adobe with a subscription model. I encourage everyone in the world to not pay for subscription software no matter what company or software it is. If no one paid for Adobe Photoshop subscription then they would only have 2 choices, go out of business or sell it as a one time purchase. I don’t think Adobe would choose the first option so therefore we the consumers win!! When more stupid people start realizing that then Photoshop, Polarr & the rest would be a one time purchase.
Great for editing but...
by Emadams2 on 2019/07/27 19:36
This app used to be amazing, I used it on a daily basis for editing (I still do) But now, there are a lot of bugs like filters I save keep on getting deleted when I re open the app after closing it and it keeps on zooming in on photos making it to where I can’t edit them without having to re screenshot the photo and I do not want to have to screenshot a scene 20 times just to i can put a dang filter on it. Please fix the zooming in bug because it’s been happening for a while and it is very annoying.
This new update does not save changes!
by Ryanmelendez93 on 2019/05/14 00:59
On the old version of Polarr, if you edited a photo and saved it, you can return to that photo after its exported and make further changes. Now in this new update, when you export a photo, it flattens your changes, and when you go back to that photo to make changes, it places all of your effects ON TOP OF the edited picture, essentially putting double the effects on your image, rather than letting you make adjustments. This is a huge issue now, and may make me cancel my subscription and go elsewhere. This needs to be fixed!
