Good then disappointing
by kawii punch on 2021/02/25 01:33
So when I got on the app I was exited and it was amazing but can you please fix the way you can’t even upload a video because why make an app so good that you can only upload photos witch is very annoying. But please fix this PLEASE!!
Videos
by messymarvin2010 on 2021/02/20 23:29
Please add videos!!! This is such a great app but I really need videos! Please do! Thank you
No More Landscape Mode???
by TheKindness on 2021/02/20 03:34
Polarr just notified me that they will be keeping Polarr in Portrait Mode only. I am in shock. Not only have they completely changed its layout, but absolutely eliminated our ability to use it in Landscape Mode. I have used Polarr since its inception, and paid for a landscaped app. Polarr is useless to me in Portrait Mode, because I use an iPad. I would have never purchased this app otherwise. To say I am feeling ripped off is an understatement. Somebody owes me some $$$!

okay app
by zophie. on 2021/02/12 21:55
i absolutely love this app, and i always use it to edit photos. but please, i’m begging you, please let us put filters on videos. it’s so frustrating to not be able to put filters on videos. i’m not asking for much, once again, i just want to be able to add filters on videos of any size. i’m begging you.
It’s fine..
by ilovedeeznutzboi on 2021/02/10 13:18
It’s fine. I just wish they would let us edit videos other than just pictures. That would be nice.
amazing, one thing...
by 𝖩𝗈𝗂𝖾 on 2021/02/07 06:14
this app is amazing and just gives aesthetic vibes to any pictures. i just really hope we are soon able to put these filters on videos.
ADD THE OPTION TO EDIT VIDEOS
by laina skye on 2021/02/03 05:08
don’t get me wrong, i love this app. it has the best filters i’ve ever used, but there’s an issue. i’m super upset that you aren’t able to edit videos, and i think it would be beneficial to have that option. thank you!
Good to edit, buggy when saving
by WVWTH on 2021/02/01 00:14
I’ve had this app for a while now and I love editing pics with it but it sure is buggy when it comes to saving pics if you’re wanting to replace the original pic with the new one rather than saving it as a new photo. Either the app glitches and closes out or freezes and you have to restart the app and edit the pic all over again. I’d say it glitches probably 1 out of every 5 times. Way too often. Would be 5 stars if those bugs are eliminated.
Why?
by lunaluna__1001 on 2021/01/29 04:17
Every reason I used to use this app basically has been removed/locked. Why?? What was the use of the update? Please change it back now...

Problem
by Staceyjxox on 2021/01/24 18:20
Whenever I try to save, a black screen appears and it closes the app. It’s been doing this for weeks now. Sometimes it wants to work and most of the time it doesn’t.
iPad mini 2 issue
by Sourdough bread house on 2021/01/24 09:42
when i enter polarr,it throws me out of the app.Please fix this problem,i can’t edit my photos.My friend which uses ipad mini 2 is having this problem too.
Works fine but...
by TakodaG on 2021/01/22 03:56
when saving edited images, there appears a line of randomly colored pixels on the top right of my pictures. This means I have to crop all of them with my phone’s app after editing on Polarr, which is quite annoying.
Great App
by stabilizershock on 2021/01/19 16:37
Great app with wide range of features and way better than Lightroom.
Fix it.
by FIX IT NOWWWWWWWWWWWW on 2021/01/17 21:05
Takes forever to scan. I have to reopen the app just to scan more than once.
Black photo bug
by Rudy. A on 2021/01/15 02:37
I used to love this app for editing but it seems recently once I go into depth editing my photos the app will randomly black out the photo and no amount of undo or anything with bring back the photo. I hate it going through the time to fine tune edits then all of sudden you have to restart I hope this problem in soon fixed...very disappointed recently.

it’s great, but one problem
by oMxlisa on 2021/01/10 04:43
i’ve been using polarr for a few days now and it’s working okay. the one problem i have is i use it on my ipad and sometimes when i try to adjust my picture, it turns black so then i have to exit and start over. i hope you guys can fix this issue
Awesome
by ur ugly: on 2021/01/10 04:19
I think this is an awesome app! It’s good for pictures, and you can make them funny too! But I wish I didn’t have to pay for the extra pack cause it takes away mula. But yah everything besides that is GREAT! 😁😁😁
MUST HAVE
by Toca-Boca mega fan since 2013 on 2021/01/07 16:20
I edit mostly all my pictures with polarr. I completely recommend this app. Something i wish tho, is that you can also add the coloring filters with videos like maybe a “pro feature” where you can possibly do that. That is just a suggestion tho :) ! Keep up the amazing work
Thank

Great app
by Dr2856 on 2020/12/31 17:00
Love a lot about this app. Many adjustments at your fingertips. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it does not go from vertical to horizontal to fill the screen of my iPad. I’m an artist and often do 16:9 aspect. I cannot do fine adjustments on these because the screen won’t rotate.
Ruined by update
by pennyink on 2020/12/28 21:23
This used to be the very best, but they have completely ruined it with the update. It's actually much harder to use now. Definitely not even worth downloading anymore.
disappointing
by superfabtablol on 2020/12/27 07:38
there should be a way to edit filters onto videoa
Please bring back Landscape for iPad
by Hideoseek on 2020/12/26 17:45

THIS Is the most amazing app
by Awsome girls from 2002 on 2020/12/19 23:34
BC in only one day of doing this I have found out sooo much about editing and most of all I ador this site and wish to see more from it
Amazing but could improve
by katelynfields on 2020/12/14 14:53
I want to give this app 5 stars but I couldn’t because every time i open the app anymore it crashes when i try to add a filter and not the type of crash where it kicks you out of the app, but instead the screen turns white and goes back to the select a photo screen and it does it every single time. Other than that the app is amazing when it decides to work for me
Great app, not buying premium
by Erik . . on 2020/12/14 14:52
I would buy it for less than $10
Fix this
by sjIDNDOENFODMF on 2020/12/13 21:37
Ever since you updated it to add the cyberpunk filters, the whole app is messing up and crashing to the point to where whenever I try to open a picture, it doesn’t even let me edit it. It crashes instantly.
i hate it!!!! do not get this app!!!
by i hate this app very much NO on 2020/12/12 21:30
i had been playing around with a bunch of different editing apps for a while and i found this one. it was really confusing and hard to work with but one thing i hate most about it is that ill be trying to edit my photos and it will go completely black and start glitching like crazy!! i hate this app!!!
Annoying
by mebejessie on 2020/12/12 12:53
This app is 42.6mb . Okay I have 526gb . This app keeps telling me I don’t have ENOUGH storage space and because if that it won’t save my edits or new filters. This has been going on for months

Good app gone bad
by Umuzunizum on 2020/11/19 20:16
I’ve been a user of this app for some time now, I fell in love with the interface and the amount of options I had in variety using Polarr. I had a few issues that weren’t super prevalent like my photos blacking out in the middle of edits Then, the update happened.. the interface makes the app so confusing and just plain annoying , my photos are blacking out dang near every time, I keep getting a message that my storage has run out when I barely have 5 gb full on a 64 gb device. I hope this changes soon cause this app used to be soooo good and it’s just so bad now
great app!
by Peenween on 2020/11/17 02:57
keeps crashing & can’t save my edits to my photos because i “don’t have enough storage” when i have 20gb available. cleared all my edits to make room and it still won’t work. i’ve always had problems, but decided to get the pro version which only brought more problems. it’s getting kinda old 😀 FIX YOUR APP AND STOP TAKING FEATURES AWAY PLEASE IT MAKES NO SENSE
Omg I hope they don’t delete this app

Video option or gif
by 🧐🥰😇🤪 on 2020/11/14 22:49
Everything is perfectly fine with the app it works fine I just wish it would have the option to also filter videos and gifs
My app keep crushing!!
by Alice 4248 on 2020/11/11 17:55
Every time I import a photo from gallery the screen turn black and it get me back to the open photo section. Then when I try to log in the app crushes. Do something about it!
And still the memory issue
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2020/11/11 00:21
At this point I just want the app to remember something. Anything. Just installed the latest update and once again the first photo I open I get the insufficient space bug. The app can’t remember what it did to a single photo, no editing history at all. Better make sure you are completely done editing a photo before you move on because it’s back to square one if you open that same photo again later. Seriously, the best set of photo editing tools available in an app that I have found so far. Great stuff. Use it all the time. But the poor app can’t remember a thing.
Suddenly terrible.
by Voiceofmadness on 2020/11/10 18:53
No longer user friendly. Basic editing features are no longer available, along with Landscape. Along with getting rid of the options for detailed work, the new option menus became a jumbled mess. Personally: I opened the app, thought i chose wrong, closed it, opened again. Tried to edit and over the next hour, STRUGGLED before I just gave up. When I get frustrated I tend to do my best to figure it out, i’m a weirdo but it’s fun, only with this... there was no rhyme or reason. As I continued to realize how many features were no longer an option, my frustration turned to a confused anger. Polar used to be my favorite editing app! Sadly, now i can’t even figure out how to do a satisfactory BASIC edit. After an HOUR. Last words: Polar now is nothing but a headache and it’s tragic. Who’s idea was this? So BAD. I’m deleting this nightmare n hoping someday it will make a comeback. I’ll download it again if the detailed options that made it so amazing are made available again... and Landscape—how basic is that?—but this is ridiculous. I really loved it so I’ll keep hoping. (Nov 2020)
WHERE IS LANDSCAPE?!?
by maxblack113 on 2020/11/07 13:59
Polarr was my favorite photo editor. I used it professionally. The huge new update that launched recently is AMAZING and long overdue. It feels much more stable than the old Polarr and the UI is simply beautiful. With all that said, I had to drop my review to 1 star because the new update removed landscape orientation which renders the app completely useless to me. It has been updated quite a few times since, but here I am still waiting for the return of landscape orientation. Once this is fixed, I’ll be sure to revise my review.
Great App but has a glitchy effect when trying to put on overlays that could cause epilepsy

Used to be able to do more
by Jcckme12345 on 2020/11/02 14:03
You used to be able to select a specific area and alter the color, contrast,saturation, etc, now the app goes off of color instead of the specific area. So if you want to change the color of the blue sky or a blue lake, it will select all items in the photo that are blue, you can’t just change that specific part of the photo. You can choose sky or water, etc, which is pretty cool, but what if you don’t want to alter all of the water or all of the sky? Just a certain part of it?
why?
by 🍣Rena🍣 on 2020/11/02 02:36
i always use polarr, but theres one thing i hate abg it. it always resets my data. like all the other filters i imported just goes away when i refresh the app. seriously?? why?? please fix this.
Excellent editing software for pros and newbies
by depressed minecraft lover on 2020/11/02 00:25
Polarr is an excellent app and software that I first used when beginning my photography business. I continue to use it as a professional as it is a quality, and easy to use software.
Some filters won’t save.
by noeele on 2020/11/01 19:38
I don’t know if it’s just me, or is it when I want to use a filter, it doesn’t save?
Great filters, active bug fixes. Minimal, perfect.
by apple.pink on 2020/10/31 21:33
I do not have an alternative that would give me this level of open, make great and send. I tried so many. After I found Polarr, I gave up looking. Congrats to any seeker. You found it. Pay up and let’s keep these guys working.

Can’t even open

Crashes on me the moment my finger lands on the screen.
Recent updates changed some things.
by Hutson g on 2020/10/26 19:05
So a while back I got this app, it had a little area where you could add shapes, fonts, letters, and special little designs they had ranging from a up and down word with lines and squares to circles with their name in the center, I used it often to make some awesome wallpapers, and as of recent times I came back to not only see that in order to use the tools I bought once are gone, but now to use them I have to pay monthly for them? And I just don’t understand what happened. I paid full price for this app, and now it’s a pay monthly to use? And on top of that you took away the things I bought to begin with?
black screen
by Aesthetic Vibes on 2020/10/26 17:48
amazing app but when i’m editing a new style at some point the picture goes completely black and cant be fixed even if you click the undo button
Pretty great so far
by jaswtheclass on 2020/10/25 13:42
Really impressed by all the features and ease of use. The tutorials as u go are helpful af. After using it once I purchased the annual subscription. Really fair price for what u get. The only thing I can say is editing the background on the computer version isn’t possible, but I just got the phone app and it’s easy af, and u can’t outline crop. Other than that it’s great
Polarr is amazing!!
by Samantha McGarry on 2020/10/23 19:37
I think this app is amazing! It works perfectly to get me amazing filters and effects for edits, photos, and more! I know this could take a lot of work and time, but can I suggest for future updates, maybe allow us to put a filter on videos? Although it will take lots of effort and time, I believe an update like that will make more editors use the app, and make the app better. If you could at least think about this as a future update it would be very much appreciated!
Awesome, but glitchy
by Dobielover1221 on 2020/10/23 19:34

Not fond of the new UI
by Sparkyyo on 2020/10/13 00:42
I’ve been using Polarr to edit my photos for years and I really appreciated the old interface/layout. It was really intuitive and appropriate for the features. New interface isn’t as intuitive or maybe I was just so used to the old interface that it was a jarring change and I can’t find features as easily as before. Will still continue to use the app for the features, but the UI is not great.
Missing out on a huge market
by The Brice Is Right on 2020/10/12 13:10
Subscription apps will never be installed on my phone. I was pretty excited to not see subscription info listed so I installed the app. Surprise. And deleted. Why can’t people make a one time purchase option??? $20 and you own it. Missing millions of customers. Oh well. A shame really; I’m an artist with a pretty decent following. And I beta test art and music apps. Keep these things in mind for the future and I’ll gladly reinstall the app.
Polarr is officially broken
by xxcdgzµ∂c∫\b÷˙«d«∂ on 2020/10/12 11:54
Ok so I’ve been using polarr for quite a while now. It was perfect for all my photo edits and more, but recently when I tried opening up Polarr it wouldn’t open?? It would load up and then go straight to a black screen. I’ve tried to shut down my device, it didn’t work, I’ve tried restarting my device, it didn’t work, I’ve even tried deleting it and reinstalling it again! It still hasn’t worked. Can you please fix this?
😭
by Savannahasdfghjkl on 2020/10/12 01:39
wasn’t a huge fan of the big update where it changed the layout and filters, but i got over it. now though it glitches ALL the time, and recently i’ve been getting a popup for “insufficient space, the latest changes couldn’t be saved” when i load a picture to edit which i don’t understand in the first place but also like. i have over 30 gb of space left on my phone but whatever you say polarr 🤪
yes!
by ah._.oki on 2020/10/11 16:08
Hello!!! My names Debra. My kid got this app and said its awesome and she puts filters for her Instagram posts for "Charlie Damelio"!? IDK!!!!!!🤣🤣! But I have a concern, She says that this app tastes like garbage. Please reach back and remember to WAP!!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🛐🛐

Polar
by maryble on 2020/10/09 15:54
This was my favorite edit app BEFORE the update. They new update took away all my favorite filters and features and even the menus and options are so confusing now. We used to be able to use the pro features once a day which we no longer can. I wish I had never updated my app.
Love
by bunchuku on 2020/10/09 01:00
I thought they removed my favorite features but they were just hard to find. Giving 5 stars again!
please fix
by Falenn on 2020/10/08 19:03
Love your app but I’ve been noticing that every time I click a filter .. the picture that I’m editing flashes and sometimes you have to click a few times to get the correct filter. Please fix , and thank you
Favorite filters gone

I don’t mind the new update, but now everything is glitchy and the photo glitches, sometimes the screen goes black and locks me out of the app.
No Landscape on iPad?
by Gilly-The-Kid on 2020/10/07 05:22
2020, iOS 14, new version update here to 6.0. And no landscape mode on iPad Pro? Sadly, this makes the app unusable for me.
My #1 photo editor
by TyD84 on 2020/04/21 15:02
I had been playing around with so many photo editing apps hoping for something more than ready made filters and bottom basic crap. After years using photoshop in my school days, no app has even came close to satisfying me. Then I stumbled upon Polarr. FINALLY!!!! The first app to go beyond simple and actually gives various options in different ways. There’s just so many options, I haven’t even figured it all out yet. Like, creating your own filter!! I absolutely LOVE this app and can’t wait to see more to come from Polarr. Why I give 4 stars, there are a few snags here and there, but nothing major. Things like, heavy in to editing a photo and boom all black and the only way to get back is by exiting out of the app. Originally, I hated the window viewer for edges, but that recently has changed and is much better. In the beginning, the app was a bit confusing even with tutorials. Then as I started getting use to everything. Then, suddenly I couldn’t use any of my paid premium options and was told the app no longer existed. It was all pretty strange, then 2 weeks later it was back. I was so upset 😂 Anyways, I highly recommend Polarr to anyone, it’s the best photo editor your going to get, other then the super expensive ones.
Used to love, but the new update messed everything up.

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.
Change it back now
by Nicos8 on 2020/06/25 08:17
I’m so happy to see that I am not the only one who is completely infuriated with the new update. Why would you completely change an entire app so that even experienced users are dumbfounded. I can’t for the life af me figure out the set up for the new way that overlays work, I cant even seem to apply an image in the style of a gradient like was able to do before. From 5 stars to 1, if could I’d give it none. You were a top rated app, why would you make such a move, that was dumber than dumb, at least have the courtesy to roll it out slowly. Not all at once. I had not known how much more useful this app was over my previous go to until the last few months. But once I really played around with it, it soon became my newest go to. I wish I had never updated. Also why is there not an easier way to delete my custom overlays, y’all didn’t bother to reconcile that situation. Who ever made this decision should be fired, or given a second chance to fix this mess that now takes up room on my phone. If something is not done soon, I will be requesting an entire refund 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️ this is not the app I paid for. Idk what this is.
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!
What happened?
by 🦋Angel🦋 on 2020/07/13 03:47
Why was the layout and the app itself redesigned? It was perfectly fine before where you could just scroll your fingers across and measure up to 100 or down to -100, simple yet useful and refreshing to make my pictures pop. Now it’s just plain and looks like you, no intention to offend or accuse, made it appear to look like the Darkroom app layout. It’s also glitchy my photos go blank when editing and only reappears when I click the before picture and never shows the picture I was in the midst of editing. In my opinion, the new things you’ve added are okay it would’ve been fine in the original layout and just as pleasing without the aesthetic to “just get it edited it doesn’t matter what it looks like so we made it all black” change. It’s also confusing, you hit adjust and flicker some changes and hit the check button and you’re like “huh? I have to edit all on the same tab?” it’s confusing having to remember I have to edit all of them on one tab itself that’s just sitting in a line above the adjusters instead of being able to hold down the adjusters and change it to what pleases you. Other than that it’s great.
New Update is Awful
by moreamealz on 2020/06/17 05:35
Polarr was by far my favorite photo editing app in the market, and I was happy to upgrade to Pro. The UI design was intelligent and intuitive. I used the app multiple times a week to edit photos for a small business I work for. I truly hate this new update. I don’t understand why Polarr changed the UI so dramatically and to such a poor design. The new UI is now very similar to most interfaces I’ve seen in the marketplace (including the editing software in Apple Photos), which not only removes a key differentiator of Polarr, it also leaves it feeling clunky. Why would I use Polarr if the design is similar to what already exists in Apple installed software? Or similar to another app on the marketplace? Not only is the layout of the editing capabilities now more obstructive, you can’t even rotate the screen! It’s very annoying to edit all my photos in a vertical view, rather than landscape. Maybe I’m just missing something? It’s rare that I leave reviews, especially negative ones, but there honestly isn’t anything I like in the new update. I felt very loyal to Polarr and truly disappointed.
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 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!
update is just bad
by 5sosfangirl888888 on 2020/06/21 23:54
i’ve used polarr for a while and it was my favorite app for filters when i can’t use psd, but this update is terrible. the design is not only a sore on the eye because it looks like every other editing app now, but it takes more steps to do simplest tasks. i don’t want to have to open a new tab EVERY time i want to use a different tool. i also can’t pinch the image to make it smaller for a better viewpoint, which is upsetting. and back to the new style visually, not being able to change the color of the background is highly problematic seeing as most of my content is black and i can’t differentiate the background from my photos, as well as the fact that i have other difficulties using the app with the background being black. honestly, don’t even try to fix the update with a new one, just go back to how it used to be. and stop throwing the “upgrade to pro” in our faces every time we open at app, it’s annoying and i’m on the verge of deleting the app—and so are all of my editor friends who use it.
problematic functionality
by MB_studio on 2020/08/05 05:40
Okay, okay, I got used to the new design and even got over the fact that some of the main features I previously used were taken away. I think the new perspective and cropping tools are an improvement. But the thing that is now making this app completely unusable for me is a new problem I've gotten no response from support - despite submitting several weeks ago. The app now, upon every single opening, says that “due to insufficient space, your recent edits will not be saved” and then reverts all of your edited photos back to their original form whenever you click on them. There is no way to undo this, or get your edits back. I have more than sufficient space on my phone, more, in fact, than when I used the previous version of this app, and more than when I started using the upgraded version (and did not have this problem at the beginning). This bug is making me search for other photo editing programs, which is frustrating, as I’ve been a longtime Polarr supporter.
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.
Please revert to the old UI!
by xxTylerhxx on 2020/07/06 15:36
I absolutely loved using this as a photo editor, it was incredibly convenient to use on the go to get professional edits that could honestly rival photoshop use on the desktop. However with this new update things are now just overly cluttered and make no sense. I loved using this exclusively to edit my photos from my DSLR that were transferred to my phone but now with the new update things are just super messy and cluttered to the point of not being able to use it anymore. The old UI was clean, very enjoyable to use, and extremely professional.. now it’s just a cluttered mess that looks like it’s trying to fit in with common photo editors. However, this isn’t a common photo editor, this is something used by people who understand photography and what it takes to edit their photos. So please revert to the previous UI, you’ll be doing thousands of us a favor so we can get back to doing what we love!
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
New update set up isn’t that great.
by aziaW on 2020/06/16 20:01
I’ve used Polarr for a while and the set up was easy and efficient and didn’t get in the way of me seeing my project I was working on. But since the new update the set up had changed and it’s harder to see and navigate what I’m doing. The bar of items and things I can do has gotten bigger and when I try to make changes it zooms in on the picture defeating the process. All in all I don’t really care for them taking away some features but changing the layout was a mistake in my opinion, Inter of staying at the bottom making it easier to see, there are more things to tap to get what I want and it’s difficult to see the outcome because it gets in the way. Maybe in the next update can it be so you can choose the layout because this new one isn’t the best.
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..
Actually, I would say this is a BIG improvement
by UpRocka on 2020/10/03 15:41
Edit: Oct. 3, 2020 No way to shut off announcement nag screen?? Seems to never go away and no option to remove sadly. Everybody seems to hate the new update, but actually, I would say this is a BIG improvement from the previous version. (ONLY REAL BUMMER IS: Batch Save is a “premium feature now”) Far as I can tell everything is still there in the free non-subscription version worth is salt and the new additional tools and tool finding layout is a huge benefit for expediting the editing process so I don’t see the issue. Most people just hate change once their used to something but I feel this new update adds more value to the previous version so I’m all for it. — nice work guys 👏🏻
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!
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.
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!!
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.
For a new user this is the way to go!
by talonfangs on 2020/09/11 02:14
I highly recommend this app! I am a new user who’s been editing photos for 3 months now, the app is highly reliable. I’ve purchased this app on my computer and had no idea it was an option for the phone. I downloaded it and kept editing my work on the go. There’s no better app then the ones that you can use on your phone and computer. Unless I haven’t seen it the only thing this app is missing is cloud storage.. without the cloud storage you’ll have to download all your photos either on your computer or phone.. so you’ll need to plan ahead.
I don’t like the new update
by firefox2122 on 2020/06/26 13:31
Hello! I’m writing this simply because well .. I don’t like the new update what so ever. I have been using your app to edit photos for another app for YEARS. Ever since this update it has both confused me and frustrated me. The filters and psd’s look nothing like how they used to despite me using the same photo. It’s actually very irritating as now I can get the current theme I’m doing on another app to look the same. I also do not like how everything is and the dark theme. I don’t like how you made everything in a new place and it genuinely really confuses me. I have no idea where to even go and how to get to the things I need to get to. The whole app is just very confusing now and frustrating. I’ve stopped using the app all together because of this and I really don’t want that to be the case. Thank you.
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
6.0.9 feels like a downgrade :(
by itzKiki2001 on 2020/06/23 22:07
Currently, I massively dislike the latest version of 6.0.9 compared to the previous one. Previously I could change the workspace of the app to a "pro" workspace, and that workspace imo is 10x easier, smoother & quicker to use compared to the new one with 6.0.9. So far the new workspace is slower, and feels a little clunky, though the workspace is "easy" to use i guess(i still need time to adjust). I've been using polarr practically everyday for at least an hour for the past week, so i'm going to have to adjust quite a bit to this(presuming it won't be enjoyable). Anyways, pretty disappointed with ver. 6.0.9, the previous version of this app was 4.5-5 stars, 10/10. Hope future updates bring back the pro workspace, and also colors(because black is hideous).
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.
Full version Purchased in 2016, now they claim there’s no record
by Tollster on 2020/09/10 17:12
Purchased in 2016, full version, and assured there would never be any further purchases. I now have two different versions, one on my IPAD pro that now asks for money for every thing I used to use, so I am now locked out. However, the one on my iPhone seems to still be operation, but the format is very awkward, and editing on a Iphone screen I may as well use a free Willy wonka app! I did contact Polarr in regards to this issue over one month ago, exchanged over 11 emails, and various screen shots to a woman name Scarlett. Nothing has been corrected on my issue since August 1st, (41 days now). I have sent her screen shots of my app purchases, Polarr edits with the computer dates from my file logs, and still get nothing but treated as if I am some sort of soft ware hack from Russia .
Please change it back
by Addisondmassey on 2020/07/28 14:58
The new update is so much more difficult to use. I love making filters and I love sharing them but now I don’t even know if I’ll be able to that anymore because of how confusing you’ve made the app. It used to be my favorite editing app because of how simple it was to use and how amazing the apps editing features are. I’m sure it still has the same editing features but I’m so used to the other layout that I don’t know if I’ll ever figure this new one out. I’ve been using this app for 2 years (maybe longer) I’ve figured everything out and became good at what I do. Now I feel like I have a whole new app and I have no idea what I’m doing. Please change it back to how it was before the update. I KNOW I can’t be the only one that’s having problems with the new layout of the app.
What’s with this upgrade?
by appsw88str on 2020/06/30 05:17
I used to love this app. But with this recent update, it’s just been a frustrating, glitchy disappointment. I can’t seem to open another photo after I finished with one, it freezes every time and I have to close and reopen the app. This makes copying and pasting edits impossible, which is one of the main features I use all the time. There’s also that annoying blue bubble that pops up with “tips” every. single. time. I open a new photo, and it covers half the photo until I click on the couple buttons it wants me to to make it go away. I get it already! The old layout was way more intuitive, I am now clicking MORE to get to the features I used to easily have at my fingertips. Please change it back...
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.
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.
Productivity killer
by yaaroti on 2020/07/23 01:19
I’ve used this app for some time, I loved it! Now, the new interface is a productivity killer. Options seem buried in an endless array of menus. Bringing up adjustments takes up half the screen... HALF THE SCREEN IS LOST TO SLIDERS!! This wasn’t always the case, I loved the old interface, I still use it on an older device that I will refuse to update, for reasons like this. Think about that: think about me using a separate device, having to transfer photos to it just to edit, then transfer back... The old interface is worth that effort, this new look is terrible, lackluster, and clearly shows a complete lack of understanding in design. If you’re just looking for basic photo editing stick with iOS built-in editor, if you need something professional, I can no longer recommend this. Fortunately, there are other well designed photo editing apps that also require a subscription but have a better design that doesn’t kill productivity. Maybe they will put an option in the app to revert back to the pre whatever this mess layout is, maybe it’s already in the options and I haven’t found it from the clunky UI.
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.
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!
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.
Recent updates changed some things.
by Hutson g on 2020/10/26 19:05
So a while back I got this app, it had a little area where you could add shapes, fonts, letters, and special little designs they had ranging from a up and down word with lines and squares to circles with their name in the center, I used it often to make some awesome wallpapers, and as of recent times I came back to not only see that in order to use the tools I bought once are gone, but now to use them I have to pay monthly for them? And I just don’t understand what happened. I paid full price for this app, and now it’s a pay monthly to use? And on top of that you took away the things I bought to begin with?
Subscription cancelled
by B5BAR on 2020/09/30 16:13
TLDR - Removal of landscape, too many UI / UX changes, and their switch to subscription AFTER I unlocked features = I don’t trust this developer anymore. I am now 100% in Lightroom, this Polarr is no longer a strong alternative to Adobe. So much for trying to support smaller devs! Devs may as well have taken my money for using Snapseed. This tool is totally useless to me now and NOT what I paid or subscribed for. NO LANDSCAPE? TOTAL UI CHANGE? I paid for the original app which went to subscription without warning, now these changes. The FAQ states landscape UI isn’t ready. THEN WHY WAS THIS TRASH RELESED IN THE FIRST PLACE?. I don’t trust this developer anymore, I actually needed to purchase a different app to batch process my photos as this app is now useless, despite paying for (Twice) this application that is totally changed.
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
Bring Back Auto Rotate
by Dysfunctional Shopper on 2020/06/27 23:11
With the latest update (June 2020) comes a whole new UI. While many of the features are the same, some functions have been moved to different locations. It’s now closer to the desktop version. I can get used to the new way of manipulating the controls but what I’m very troubled by is it now appears to be locked in portrait mode. Most of my photos are done in landscape mode and being forced to do everything in portrait mode is VERY frustrating! If it is possible to change orientation, I haven’t been able to find it. There isn’t anything in Settings. It used to auto rotate. Not anymore. Please please please bring back auto rotate!!!
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.
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...
And still the memory issue
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2020/11/11 00:21
At this point I just want the app to remember something. Anything. Just installed the latest update and once again the first photo I open I get the insufficient space bug. The app can’t remember what it did to a single photo, no editing history at all. Better make sure you are completely done editing a photo before you move on because it’s back to square one if you open that same photo again later. Seriously, the best set of photo editing tools available in an app that I have found so far. Great stuff. Use it all the time. But the poor app can’t remember a thing.
Suddenly terrible.
by Voiceofmadness on 2020/11/10 18:53
No longer user friendly. Basic editing features are no longer available, along with Landscape. Along with getting rid of the options for detailed work, the new option menus became a jumbled mess. Personally: I opened the app, thought i chose wrong, closed it, opened again. Tried to edit and over the next hour, STRUGGLED before I just gave up. When I get frustrated I tend to do my best to figure it out, i’m a weirdo but it’s fun, only with this... there was no rhyme or reason. As I continued to realize how many features were no longer an option, my frustration turned to a confused anger. Polar used to be my favorite editing app! Sadly, now i can’t even figure out how to do a satisfactory BASIC edit. After an HOUR. Last words: Polar now is nothing but a headache and it’s tragic. Who’s idea was this? So BAD. I’m deleting this nightmare n hoping someday it will make a comeback. I’ll download it again if the detailed options that made it so amazing are made available again... and Landscape—how basic is that?—but this is ridiculous. I really loved it so I’ll keep hoping. (Nov 2020)
6.0 is really bad
by Jaydizzy007 on 2020/06/28 19:51
The update is absolutely awful. Turned a 5 star app into a 1 star app. It’s far less intuitive, just clutter everywhere. The app feels dumbed down and mediocre now. I have no idea how someone thought this was an improvement. Your app wasn’t broken and didn’t need to be fixed. I used this app for everything photo related, now it’s pretty much useless. Fortunately I managed to keep the previous version on another device... miles ahead of this “improved update”. You guys really need to listen to all this feedback, you’re absolutely destroying your user base. This app will be an easy delete if it stays as is. Maybe give an option to select the “classic” layout if you’re set on keeping this update.

Good then disappointing
by kawii punch on 2021/02/25 01:33
So when I got on the app I was exited and it was amazing but can you please fix the way you can’t even upload a video because why make an app so good that you can only upload photos witch is very annoying. But please fix this PLEASE!!
Videos
by messymarvin2010 on 2021/02/20 23:29
Please add videos!!! This is such a great app but I really need videos! Please do! Thank you
No More Landscape Mode???
by TheKindness on 2021/02/20 03:34
Polarr just notified me that they will be keeping Polarr in Portrait Mode only. I am in shock. Not only have they completely changed its layout, but absolutely eliminated our ability to use it in Landscape Mode. I have used Polarr since its inception, and paid for a landscaped app. Polarr is useless to me in Portrait Mode, because I use an iPad. I would have never purchased this app otherwise. To say I am feeling ripped off is an understatement. Somebody owes me some $$$!

okay app
by zophie. on 2021/02/12 21:55
i absolutely love this app, and i always use it to edit photos. but please, i’m begging you, please let us put filters on videos. it’s so frustrating to not be able to put filters on videos. i’m not asking for much, once again, i just want to be able to add filters on videos of any size. i’m begging you.
It’s fine..
by ilovedeeznutzboi on 2021/02/10 13:18
It’s fine. I just wish they would let us edit videos other than just pictures. That would be nice.
amazing, one thing...
by 𝖩𝗈𝗂𝖾 on 2021/02/07 06:14
this app is amazing and just gives aesthetic vibes to any pictures. i just really hope we are soon able to put these filters on videos.
ADD THE OPTION TO EDIT VIDEOS
by laina skye on 2021/02/03 05:08
don’t get me wrong, i love this app. it has the best filters i’ve ever used, but there’s an issue. i’m super upset that you aren’t able to edit videos, and i think it would be beneficial to have that option. thank you!
Good to edit, buggy when saving
by WVWTH on 2021/02/01 00:14
I’ve had this app for a while now and I love editing pics with it but it sure is buggy when it comes to saving pics if you’re wanting to replace the original pic with the new one rather than saving it as a new photo. Either the app glitches and closes out or freezes and you have to restart the app and edit the pic all over again. I’d say it glitches probably 1 out of every 5 times. Way too often. Would be 5 stars if those bugs are eliminated.
Why?
by lunaluna__1001 on 2021/01/29 04:17
Every reason I used to use this app basically has been removed/locked. Why?? What was the use of the update? Please change it back now...

Problem
by Staceyjxox on 2021/01/24 18:20
Whenever I try to save, a black screen appears and it closes the app. It’s been doing this for weeks now. Sometimes it wants to work and most of the time it doesn’t.
iPad mini 2 issue
by Sourdough bread house on 2021/01/24 09:42
when i enter polarr,it throws me out of the app.Please fix this problem,i can’t edit my photos.My friend which uses ipad mini 2 is having this problem too.
Works fine but...
by TakodaG on 2021/01/22 03:56
when saving edited images, there appears a line of randomly colored pixels on the top right of my pictures. This means I have to crop all of them with my phone’s app after editing on Polarr, which is quite annoying.
Great App
by stabilizershock on 2021/01/19 16:37
Great app with wide range of features and way better than Lightroom.
Fix it.
by FIX IT NOWWWWWWWWWWWW on 2021/01/17 21:05
Takes forever to scan. I have to reopen the app just to scan more than once.
Black photo bug
by Rudy. A on 2021/01/15 02:37
I used to love this app for editing but it seems recently once I go into depth editing my photos the app will randomly black out the photo and no amount of undo or anything with bring back the photo. I hate it going through the time to fine tune edits then all of sudden you have to restart I hope this problem in soon fixed...very disappointed recently.

i’ve been using polarr for a few days now and it’s working okay. the one problem i have is i use it on my ipad and sometimes when i try to adjust my picture, it turns black so then i have to exit and start over. i hope you guys can fix this issue
Awesome
by ur ugly: on 2021/01/10 04:19
I think this is an awesome app! It’s good for pictures, and you can make them funny too! But I wish I didn’t have to pay for the extra pack cause it takes away mula. But yah everything besides that is GREAT! 😁😁😁
MUST HAVE
by Toca-Boca mega fan since 2013 on 2021/01/07 16:20
I edit mostly all my pictures with polarr. I completely recommend this app. Something i wish tho, is that you can also add the coloring filters with videos like maybe a “pro feature” where you can possibly do that. That is just a suggestion tho :) ! Keep up the amazing work
Thank

Great app
by Dr2856 on 2020/12/31 17:00
Love a lot about this app. Many adjustments at your fingertips. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it does not go from vertical to horizontal to fill the screen of my iPad. I’m an artist and often do 16:9 aspect. I cannot do fine adjustments on these because the screen won’t rotate.
Ruined by update
by pennyink on 2020/12/28 21:23
This used to be the very best, but they have completely ruined it with the update. It&#39;s actually much harder to use now. Definitely not even worth downloading anymore.
disappointing
by superfabtablol on 2020/12/27 07:38
there should be a way to edit filters onto videoa
Please bring back Landscape for iPad

Amazing but could improve
by katelynfields on 2020/12/14 14:53
I want to give this app 5 stars but I couldn’t because every time i open the app anymore it crashes when i try to add a filter and not the type of crash where it kicks you out of the app, but instead the screen turns white and goes back to the select a photo screen and it does it every single time. Other than that the app is amazing when it decides to work for me
Great app, not buying premium

Fix this
by sjIDNDOENFODMF on 2020/12/13 21:37
Ever since you updated it to add the cyberpunk filters, the whole app is messing up and crashing to the point to where whenever I try to open a picture, it doesn’t even let me edit it. It crashes instantly.
i hate it!!!! do not get this app!!!
by i hate this app very much NO on 2020/12/12 21:30
i had been playing around with a bunch of different editing apps for a while and i found this one. it was really confusing and hard to work with but one thing i hate most about it is that ill be trying to edit my photos and it will go completely black and start glitching like crazy!! i hate this app!!!

Good app gone bad
by Umuzunizum on 2020/11/19 20:16
I’ve been a user of this app for some time now, I fell in love with the interface and the amount of options I had in variety using Polarr. I had a few issues that weren’t super prevalent like my photos blacking out in the middle of edits Then, the update happened.. the interface makes the app so confusing and just plain annoying , my photos are blacking out dang near every time, I keep getting a message that my storage has run out when I barely have 5 gb full on a 64 gb device. I hope this changes soon cause this app used to be soooo good and it’s just so bad now
great app!
by Peenween on 2020/11/17 02:57
keeps crashing &amp; can’t save my edits to my photos because i “don’t have enough storage” when i have 20gb available. cleared all my edits to make room and it still won’t work. i’ve always had problems, but decided to get the pro version which only brought more problems. it’s getting kinda old 😀 FIX YOUR APP AND STOP TAKING FEATURES AWAY PLEASE IT MAKES NO SENSE

I’m deleting this nightmare n hoping someday it will make a comeback. I’ll download it again if the detailed options that made it so amazing are made available again... and Landscape—how basic is that?—but this is ridiculous. I really loved it so I’ll keep hoping. (Nov 2020)
WHERE IS LANDSCAPE?!?
by maxblack113 on 2020/11/07 13:59
Polarr was my favorite photo editor. I used it professionally. The huge new update that launched recently is AMAZING and long overdue. It feels much more stable than the old Polarr and the UI is simply beautiful. With all that said, I had to drop my review to 1 star because the new update removed landscape orientation which renders the app completely useless to me. It has been updated quite a few times since, but here I am still waiting for the return of landscape orientation. Once this is fixed, I’ll be sure to revise my review.
Great App but has a glitchy effect when trying to put on overlays that could cause epilepsy

My favorite photo editing app but needs landscape mode for iPad

That&#39;s my only complaint
Im arash

Thnk you for your great app
Used to be able to do more
by Jcckme12345 on 2020/11/02 14:03
You used to be able to select a specific area and alter the color, contrast,saturation, etc, now the app goes off of color instead of the specific area. So if you want to change the color of the blue sky or a blue lake, it will select all items in the photo that are blue, you can’t just change that specific part of the photo. You can choose sky or water, etc, which is pretty cool, but what if you don’t want to alter all of the water or all of the sky? Just a certain part of it?
why?
by 🍣Rena🍣 on 2020/11/02 02:36
i always use polarr, but theres one thing i hate abg it. it always resets my data. like all the other filters i imported just goes away when i refresh the app. seriously?? why?? please fix this.
Excellent editing software for pros and newbies
by depressed minecraft lover on 2020/11/02 00:25
Polarr is an excellent app and software that I first used when beginning my photography business. I continue to use it as a professional as it is a quality, and easy to use software.
Some filters won’t save.
by noeele on 2020/11/01 19:38
I don’t know if it’s just me, or is it when I want to use a filter, it doesn’t save?
Great filters, active bug fixes. Minimal, perfect.
by apple.pink on 2020/10/31 21:33
I do not have an alternative that would give me this level of open, make great and send. I tried so many. After I found Polarr, I gave up looking. Congrats to any seeker. You found it. Pay up and let’s keep these guys working.
glitchy

Awesome
by meh🤸 on 2020/10/29 18:29
Awesome app I truly love it the only thing I would consider is making some things more free others might get offended and not want to use your app.
Was so much better with text
by 🌺Olive🌺 on 2020/10/29 04:17
Bring text back please. I used this app all the time when there was an option of text and it was so easy.
Can’t even open
by rainybowhair on 2020/10/28 03:22
Crashes on me the moment my finger lands on the screen.
Recent updates changed some things.
by Hutson g on 2020/10/26 19:05
So a while back I got this app, it had a little area where you could add shapes, fonts, letters, and special little designs they had ranging from a up and down word with lines and squares to circles with their name in the center, I used it often to make some awesome wallpapers, and as of recent times I came back to not only see that in order to use the tools I bought once are gone, but now to use them I have to pay monthly for them? And I just don’t understand what happened. I paid full price for this app, and now it’s a pay monthly to use? And on top of that you took away the things I bought to begin with?
black screen
by Aesthetic Vibes on 2020/10/26 17:48
amazing app but when i’m editing a new style at some point the picture goes completely black and cant be fixed even if you click the undo button
Pretty great so far
by jaswtheclass on 2020/10/25 13:42
Really impressed by all the features and ease of use. The tutorials as u go are helpful af. After using it once I purchased the annual subscription. Really fair price for what u get. The only thing I can say is editing the background on the computer version isn’t possible, but I just got the phone app and it’s easy af, and u can’t outline crop. Other than that it’s great
Polarr is amazing!!
by Samantha McGarry on 2020/10/23 19:37
I think this app is amazing! It works perfectly to get me amazing filters and effects for edits, photos, and more! I know this could take a lot of work and time, but can I suggest for future updates, maybe allow us to put a filter on videos? Although it will take lots of effort and time, I believe an update like that will make more editors use the app, and make the app better. If you could at least think about this as a future update it would be very much appreciated!
Awesome, but glitchy
by Dobielover1221 on 2020/10/23 19:34
This is one of my favorite editing apps and I have used it for a long time, but recently it started glitching. I tried deleting the app, but it won’t even let me sign in.
glitches?
by -whiskypetrova on 2020/10/23 16:27

Amazing!

Just started using it and this app is great!!
Not fond of the new UI
by Sparkyyo on 2020/10/13 00:42
I’ve been using Polarr to edit my photos for years and I really appreciated the old interface/layout. It was really intuitive and appropriate for the features. New interface isn’t as intuitive or maybe I was just so used to the old interface that it was a jarring change and I can’t find features as easily as before. Will still continue to use the app for the features, but the UI is not great.
Missing out on a huge market
by The Brice Is Right on 2020/10/12 13:10
Subscription apps will never be installed on my phone. I was pretty excited to not see subscription info listed so I installed the app. Surprise. And deleted. Why can’t people make a one time purchase option??? $20 and you own it. Missing millions of customers. Oh well. A shame really; I’m an artist with a pretty decent following. And I beta test art and music apps. Keep these things in mind for the future and I’ll gladly reinstall the app.
Polarr is officially broken
by xxcdgzµ∂c∫\b÷˙«d«∂ on 2020/10/12 11:54
Ok so I’ve been using polarr for quite a while now. It was perfect for all my photo edits and more, but recently when I tried opening up Polarr it wouldn’t open?? It would load up and then go straight to a black screen. I’ve tried to shut down my device, it didn’t work, I’ve tried restarting my device, it didn’t work, I’ve even tried deleting it and reinstalling it again! It still hasn’t worked. Can you please fix this?
😭
by Savannahasdfghjkl on 2020/10/12 01:39
wasn’t a huge fan of the big update where it changed the layout and filters, but i got over it. now though it glitches ALL the time, and recently i’ve been getting a popup for “insufficient space, the latest changes couldn’t be saved” when i load a picture to edit which i don’t understand in the first place but also like. i have over 30 gb of space left on my phone but whatever you say polarr 🤪
yes!
by ah._.oki on 2020/10/11 16:08
Hello!!! My names Debra. My kid got this app and said its awesome and she puts filters for her Instagram posts for &#34;Charlie Damelio&#34;!? IDK!!!!!!🤣🤣! But I have a concern, She says that this app tastes like garbage. Please reach back and remember to WAP!!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🛐🛐
bad update

Polar
by maryble on 2020/10/09 15:54
This was my favorite edit app BEFORE the update. They new update took away all my favorite filters and features and even the menus and options are so confusing now. We used to be able to use the pro features once a day which we no longer can. I wish I had never updated my app.
Love
by bunchuku on 2020/10/09 01:00
I thought they removed my favorite features but they were just hard to find. Giving 5 stars again!
please fix
by Falenn on 2020/10/08 19:03
Love your app but I’ve been noticing that every time I click a filter .. the picture that I’m editing flashes and sometimes you have to click a few times to get the correct filter. Please fix , and thank you
Favorite filters gone

I don’t mind the new update, but now everything is glitchy and the photo glitches, sometimes the screen goes black and locks me out of the app.
No Landscape on iPad?
by Gilly-The-Kid on 2020/10/07 05:22
2020, iOS 14, new version update here to 6.0. And no landscape mode on iPad Pro? Sadly, this makes the app unusable for me.
My #1 photo editor
by TyD84 on 2020/04/21 15:02
I had been playing around with so many photo editing apps hoping for something more than ready made filters and bottom basic crap. After years using photoshop in my school days, no app has even came close to satisfying me. Then I stumbled upon Polarr. FINALLY!!!! The first app to go beyond simple and actually gives various options in different ways. There’s just so many options, I haven’t even figured it all out yet. Like, creating your own filter!! I absolutely LOVE this app and can’t wait to see more to come from Polarr. Why I give 4 stars, there are a few snags here and there, but nothing major. Things like, heavy in to editing a photo and boom all black and the only way to get back is by exiting out of the app. Originally, I hated the window viewer for edges, but that recently has changed and is much better. In the beginning, the app was a bit confusing even with tutorials. Then as I started getting use to everything. Then, suddenly I couldn’t use any of my paid premium options and was told the app no longer existed. It was all pretty strange, then 2 weeks later it was back. I was so upset 😂 Anyways, I highly recommend Polarr to anyone, it’s the best photo editor your going to get, other then the super expensive ones.
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.
Change it back now
by Nicos8 on 2020/06/25 08:17
I’m so happy to see that I am not the only one who is completely infuriated with the new update. Why would you completely change an entire app so that even experienced users are dumbfounded. I can’t for the life af me figure out the set up for the new way that overlays work, I cant even seem to apply an image in the style of a gradient like was able to do before. From 5 stars to 1, if could I’d give it none. You were a top rated app, why would you make such a move, that was dumber than dumb, at least have the courtesy to roll it out slowly. Not all at once. I had not known how much more useful this app was over my previous go to until the last few months. But once I really played around with it, it soon became my newest go to. I wish I had never updated. Also why is there not an easier way to delete my custom overlays, y’all didn’t bother to reconcile that situation. Who ever made this decision should be fired, or given a second chance to fix this mess that now takes up room on my phone. If something is not done soon, I will be requesting an entire refund 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️ this is not the app I paid for. Idk what this is.
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!
What happened?
by 🦋Angel🦋 on 2020/07/13 03:47
Why was the layout and the app itself redesigned? It was perfectly fine before where you could just scroll your fingers across and measure up to 100 or down to -100, simple yet useful and refreshing to make my pictures pop. Now it’s just plain and looks like you, no intention to offend or accuse, made it appear to look like the Darkroom app layout. It’s also glitchy my photos go blank when editing and only reappears when I click the before picture and never shows the picture I was in the midst of editing. In my opinion, the new things you’ve added are okay it would’ve been fine in the original layout and just as pleasing without the aesthetic to “just get it edited it doesn’t matter what it looks like so we made it all black” change. It’s also confusing, you hit adjust and flicker some changes and hit the check button and you’re like “huh? I have to edit all on the same tab?” it’s confusing having to remember I have to edit all of them on one tab itself that’s just sitting in a line above the adjusters instead of being able to hold down the adjusters and change it to what pleases you. Other than that it’s great.
New Update is Awful
by moreamealz on 2020/06/17 05:35
Polarr was by far my favorite photo editing app in the market, and I was happy to upgrade to Pro. The UI design was intelligent and intuitive. I used the app multiple times a week to edit photos for a small business I work for. I truly hate this new update. I don’t understand why Polarr changed the UI so dramatically and to such a poor design. The new UI is now very similar to most interfaces I’ve seen in the marketplace (including the editing software in Apple Photos), which not only removes a key differentiator of Polarr, it also leaves it feeling clunky. Why would I use Polarr if the design is similar to what already exists in Apple installed software? Or similar to another app on the marketplace? Not only is the layout of the editing capabilities now more obstructive, you can’t even rotate the screen! It’s very annoying to edit all my photos in a vertical view, rather than landscape. Maybe I’m just missing something? It’s rare that I leave reviews, especially negative ones, but there honestly isn’t anything I like in the new update. I felt very loyal to Polarr and truly disappointed.
great app but a few bugs
by @gyfueroa on 2019/01/09 08:28
i’ve been using polarr for over a year now and it’s always served me well. i’d been putting off writing a review for polarr for a good amount of time now though because polarr itself is a great app, i just thought my problem would’ve been mentioned by other users and been fixed by now, but my problem still exists. the app itself is very easy to use and has TONS of features to use for pretty much every type of photo. my problem is that after editing and exporting maybe 6 photos at a time (individually instead of with the batch export feature), when i try to open another picture polarr either freezes and crashes or very tightly crops the photo (usually when there is a face in the picture). i don’t think it has to do with the hardware polarr is being running on. this has been happening to me for a few months now on my ipad pro and even recently on a new iphone.
Great results but a few bugs
by P.mousse Esq. on 2017/11/07 18:06
For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it&#39;s implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job. The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can&#39;t use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn&#39;t perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I&#39;ve been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I&#39;ve tried.
A 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!
update is just bad
by 5sosfangirl888888 on 2020/06/21 23:54
i’ve used polarr for a while and it was my favorite app for filters when i can’t use psd, but this update is terrible. the design is not only a sore on the eye because it looks like every other editing app now, but it takes more steps to do simplest tasks. i don’t want to have to open a new tab EVERY time i want to use a different tool. i also can’t pinch the image to make it smaller for a better viewpoint, which is upsetting. and back to the new style visually, not being able to change the color of the background is highly problematic seeing as most of my content is black and i can’t differentiate the background from my photos, as well as the fact that i have other difficulties using the app with the background being black. honestly, don’t even try to fix the update with a new one, just go back to how it used to be. and stop throwing the “upgrade to pro” in our faces every time we open at app, it’s annoying and i’m on the verge of deleting the app—and so are all of my editor friends who use it.
problematic functionality
by MB_studio on 2020/08/05 05:40
Okay, okay, I got used to the new design and even got over the fact that some of the main features I previously used were taken away. I think the new perspective and cropping tools are an improvement. But the thing that is now making this app completely unusable for me is a new problem I&#39;ve gotten no response from support - despite submitting several weeks ago. The app now, upon every single opening, says that “due to insufficient space, your recent edits will not be saved” and then reverts all of your edited photos back to their original form whenever you click on them. There is no way to undo this, or get your edits back. I have more than sufficient space on my phone, more, in fact, than when I used the previous version of this app, and more than when I started using the upgraded version (and did not have this problem at the beginning). This bug is making me search for other photo editing programs, which is frustrating, as I’ve been a longtime Polarr supporter.
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.
Please revert to the old UI!
by xxTylerhxx on 2020/07/06 15:36
I absolutely loved using this as a photo editor, it was incredibly convenient to use on the go to get professional edits that could honestly rival photoshop use on the desktop. However with this new update things are now just overly cluttered and make no sense. I loved using this exclusively to edit my photos from my DSLR that were transferred to my phone but now with the new update things are just super messy and cluttered to the point of not being able to use it anymore. The old UI was clean, very enjoyable to use, and extremely professional.. now it’s just a cluttered mess that looks like it’s trying to fit in with common photo editors. However, this isn’t a common photo editor, this is something used by people who understand photography and what it takes to edit their photos. So please revert to the previous UI, you’ll be doing thousands of us a favor so we can get back to doing what we love!
Best Photo Editor on the Apple Store
by PhilWil on 2019/11/03 13:25
I can go on as on about this app. I’m so glad I took a chance and paid for it. It does everything I want it to do and more. Truly worth it. So much so that when I create my Teachable class for phone photographers I am going to have a special section just for Polarr. If you are a influencer, want to go more professional, you want to edit your photos to a higher level, get this app. This app isn’t for the regular person who is cool with the edits most people would want. This is for those who want way more than the regular. They want the best. This is like photoshop for your phone.
New update set up isn’t that great.
by aziaW on 2020/06/16 20:01
I’ve used Polarr for a while and the set up was easy and efficient and didn’t get in the way of me seeing my project I was working on. But since the new update the set up had changed and it’s harder to see and navigate what I’m doing. The bar of items and things I can do has gotten bigger and when I try to make changes it zooms in on the picture defeating the process. All in all I don’t really care for them taking away some features but changing the layout was a mistake in my opinion, Inter of staying at the bottom making it easier to see, there are more things to tap to get what I want and it’s difficult to see the outcome because it gets in the way. Maybe in the next update can it be so you can choose the layout because this new one isn’t the best.
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..
Actually, I would say this is a BIG improvement
by UpRocka on 2020/10/03 15:41
Edit: Oct. 3, 2020 No way to shut off announcement nag screen?? Seems to never go away and no option to remove sadly. Everybody seems to hate the new update, but actually, I would say this is a BIG improvement from the previous version. (ONLY REAL BUMMER IS: Batch Save is a “premium feature now”) Far as I can tell everything is still there in the free non-subscription version worth is salt and the new additional tools and tool finding layout is a huge benefit for expediting the editing process so I don’t see the issue. Most people just hate change once their used to something but I feel this new update adds more value to the previous version so I’m all for it. — nice work guys 👏🏻
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!
It’s about the $$$ already paid

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.
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!!
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.
For a new user this is the way to go!
by talonfangs on 2020/09/11 02:14
I highly recommend this app! I am a new user who’s been editing photos for 3 months now, the app is highly reliable. I’ve purchased this app on my computer and had no idea it was an option for the phone. I downloaded it and kept editing my work on the go. There’s no better app then the ones that you can use on your phone and computer. Unless I haven’t seen it the only thing this app is missing is cloud storage.. without the cloud storage you’ll have to download all your photos either on your computer or phone.. so you’ll need to plan ahead.
I don’t like the new update
by firefox2122 on 2020/06/26 13:31
Hello! I’m writing this simply because well .. I don’t like the new update what so ever. I have been using your app to edit photos for another app for YEARS. Ever since this update it has both confused me and frustrated me. The filters and psd’s look nothing like how they used to despite me using the same photo. It’s actually very irritating as now I can get the current theme I’m doing on another app to look the same. I also do not like how everything is and the dark theme. I don’t like how you made everything in a new place and it genuinely really confuses me. I have no idea where to even go and how to get to the things I need to get to. The whole app is just very confusing now and frustrating. I’ve stopped using the app all together because of this and I really don’t want that to be the case. Thank you.
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
6.0.9 feels like a downgrade :(
by itzKiki2001 on 2020/06/23 22:07
Currently, I massively dislike the latest version of 6.0.9 compared to the previous one. Previously I could change the workspace of the app to a &#34;pro&#34; workspace, and that workspace imo is 10x easier, smoother &amp; quicker to use compared to the new one with 6.0.9. So far the new workspace is slower, and feels a little clunky, though the workspace is &#34;easy&#34; to use i guess(i still need time to adjust). I&#39;ve been using polarr practically everyday for at least an hour for the past week, so i&#39;m going to have to adjust quite a bit to this(presuming it won&#39;t be enjoyable). Anyways, pretty disappointed with ver. 6.0.9, the previous version of this app was 4.5-5 stars, 10/10. Hope future updates bring back the pro workspace, and also colors(because black is hideous).
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.
Full version Purchased in 2016, now they claim there’s no record
by Tollster on 2020/09/10 17:12
Purchased in 2016, full version, and assured there would never be any further purchases. I now have two different versions, one on my IPAD pro that now asks for money for every thing I used to use, so I am now locked out. However, the one on my iPhone seems to still be operation, but the format is very awkward, and editing on a Iphone screen I may as well use a free Willy wonka app! I did contact Polarr in regards to this issue over one month ago, exchanged over 11 emails, and various screen shots to a woman name Scarlett. Nothing has been corrected on my issue since August 1st, (41 days now). I have sent her screen shots of my app purchases, Polarr edits with the computer dates from my file logs, and still get nothing but treated as if I am some sort of soft ware hack from Russia .
Please change it back
by Addisondmassey on 2020/07/28 14:58
The new update is so much more difficult to use. I love making filters and I love sharing them but now I don’t even know if I’ll be able to that anymore because of how confusing you’ve made the app. It used to be my favorite editing app because of how simple it was to use and how amazing the apps editing features are. I’m sure it still has the same editing features but I’m so used to the other layout that I don’t know if I’ll ever figure this new one out. I’ve been using this app for 2 years (maybe longer) I’ve figured everything out and became good at what I do. Now I feel like I have a whole new app and I have no idea what I’m doing. Please change it back to how it was before the update. I KNOW I can’t be the only one that’s having problems with the new layout of the app.
What’s with this upgrade?
by appsw88str on 2020/06/30 05:17
I used to love this app. But with this recent update, it’s just been a frustrating, glitchy disappointment. I can’t seem to open another photo after I finished with one, it freezes every time and I have to close and reopen the app. This makes copying and pasting edits impossible, which is one of the main features I use all the time. There’s also that annoying blue bubble that pops up with “tips” every. single. time. I open a new photo, and it covers half the photo until I click on the couple buttons it wants me to to make it go away. I get it already! The old layout was way more intuitive, I am now clicking MORE to get to the features I used to easily have at my fingertips. Please change it back...
Great photo app and good to it's loyal customers
by F9X on 2018/05/13 08:08
About a year and a half ago I paid for the app, it&#39;s the only app I use for my photographs, i&#39;ve always love the filters and the choices I can do to make my photographs better. I&#39;m not a photographer in anyway but polarr makes it easy brings the best out of my photographs. I&#39;m also very appreciative that they&#39;re not screwing the current customer base who have supported the app over the years. In return I&#39;ve always recommend at the app when people ask me what do I use for my photographs, people to buy it. Thank you once again for a great app.
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.
Productivity killer
by yaaroti on 2020/07/23 01:19
I’ve used this app for some time, I loved it! Now, the new interface is a productivity killer. Options seem buried in an endless array of menus. Bringing up adjustments takes up half the screen... HALF THE SCREEN IS LOST TO SLIDERS!! This wasn’t always the case, I loved the old interface, I still use it on an older device that I will refuse to update, for reasons like this. Think about that: think about me using a separate device, having to transfer photos to it just to edit, then transfer back... The old interface is worth that effort, this new look is terrible, lackluster, and clearly shows a complete lack of understanding in design. If you’re just looking for basic photo editing stick with iOS built-in editor, if you need something professional, I can no longer recommend this. Fortunately, there are other well designed photo editing apps that also require a subscription but have a better design that doesn’t kill productivity. Maybe they will put an option in the app to revert back to the pre whatever this mess layout is, maybe it’s already in the options and I haven’t found it from the clunky UI.
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.
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!
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.
Recent updates changed some things.
by Hutson g on 2020/10/26 19:05
So a while back I got this app, it had a little area where you could add shapes, fonts, letters, and special little designs they had ranging from a up and down word with lines and squares to circles with their name in the center, I used it often to make some awesome wallpapers, and as of recent times I came back to not only see that in order to use the tools I bought once are gone, but now to use them I have to pay monthly for them? And I just don’t understand what happened. I paid full price for this app, and now it’s a pay monthly to use? And on top of that you took away the things I bought to begin with?
Subscription cancelled
by B5BAR on 2020/09/30 16:13
TLDR - Removal of landscape, too many UI / UX changes, and their switch to subscription AFTER I unlocked features = I don’t trust this developer anymore. I am now 100% in Lightroom, this Polarr is no longer a strong alternative to Adobe. So much for trying to support smaller devs! Devs may as well have taken my money for using Snapseed. This tool is totally useless to me now and NOT what I paid or subscribed for. NO LANDSCAPE? TOTAL UI CHANGE? I paid for the original app which went to subscription without warning, now these changes. The FAQ states landscape UI isn’t ready. THEN WHY WAS THIS TRASH RELESED IN THE FIRST PLACE?. I don’t trust this developer anymore, I actually needed to purchase a different app to batch process my photos as this app is now useless, despite paying for (Twice) this application that is totally changed.
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
Bring Back Auto Rotate
by Dysfunctional Shopper on 2020/06/27 23:11
With the latest update (June 2020) comes a whole new UI. While many of the features are the same, some functions have been moved to different locations. It’s now closer to the desktop version. I can get used to the new way of manipulating the controls but what I’m very troubled by is it now appears to be locked in portrait mode. Most of my photos are done in landscape mode and being forced to do everything in portrait mode is VERY frustrating! If it is possible to change orientation, I haven’t been able to find it. There isn’t anything in Settings. It used to auto rotate. Not anymore. Please please please bring back auto rotate!!!
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.
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...
And still the memory issue
by Josh_Joshmeme on 2020/11/11 00:21
At this point I just want the app to remember something. Anything. Just installed the latest update and once again the first photo I open I get the insufficient space bug. The app can’t remember what it did to a single photo, no editing history at all. Better make sure you are completely done editing a photo before you move on because it’s back to square one if you open that same photo again later. Seriously, the best set of photo editing tools available in an app that I have found so far. Great stuff. Use it all the time. But the poor app can’t remember a thing.
Suddenly terrible.
by Voiceofmadness on 2020/11/10 18:53
No longer user friendly. Basic editing features are no longer available, along with Landscape. Along with getting rid of the options for detailed work, the new option menus became a jumbled mess. Personally: I opened the app, thought i chose wrong, closed it, opened again. Tried to edit and over the next hour, STRUGGLED before I just gave up. When I get frustrated I tend to do my best to figure it out, i’m a weirdo but it’s fun, only with this... there was no rhyme or reason. As I continued to realize how many features were no longer an option, my frustration turned to a confused anger. Polar used to be my favorite editing app! Sadly, now i can’t even figure out how to do a satisfactory BASIC edit. After an HOUR. Last words: Polar now is nothing but a headache and it’s tragic. Who’s idea was this? So BAD. I’m deleting this nightmare n hoping someday it will make a comeback. I’ll download it again if the detailed options that made it so amazing are made available again... and Landscape—how basic is that?—but this is ridiculous. I really loved it so I’ll keep hoping. (Nov 2020)
6.0 is really bad
by Jaydizzy007 on 2020/06/28 19:51
The update is absolutely awful. Turned a 5 star app into a 1 star app. It’s far less intuitive, just clutter everywhere. The app feels dumbed down and mediocre now. I have no idea how someone thought this was an improvement. Your app wasn’t broken and didn’t need to be fixed. I used this app for everything photo related, now it’s pretty much useless. Fortunately I managed to keep the previous version on another device... miles ahead of this “improved update”. You guys really need to listen to all this feedback, you’re absolutely destroying your user base. This app will be an easy delete if it stays as is. Maybe give an option to select the “classic” layout if you’re set on keeping this update.
