I adore this app, but the CRASHING!!!
Well, I’m just gonna say right off: I love this app. It has such a variety of everything for editing and you can seriously make some awesome creations on this app. But the worst part is, once you’ve made something with multiple layers of stickers, filtering, drawings, photos, etc., it completely freezes and crashes. I’ve lost so, SO many projects because of this app crashing. I love to edit photos and make wild aesthetic edits with them, but I also love to layer and continuously add things, which the app can’t handle. After about later 25, if you hit the undo arrow, it’ll load for 15+ minutes and evidently most likely crash. My phone has lots of storage so I know that it’s the app crashing. I’ve had to just start taking screenshots of my progress every once in awhile in case it crashes I still have a save point (I can’t save it because I’m still layering and moving things around).
Overall, I use the sticker feature more out of anything. I love how people can upload their own stickers and such and you can share yours. It’s a great way to share creativity and really helpful to make cool photos edits. But the app just can’t handle the excessive layering that I’m trying to do. I haven’t heard of any other app that can do this much and NOT give me an annoying watermark on my photo. I’m not sure how fixable this issue is but if it is, I would be over the moon and definitely change my rating to five stars.
Great app, just a few issues
I’ve been using PicsArt as my main editing app for quite a few years now and it has become my best friend. The multiple features are easy to use and unique to PicsArt. The variety of stickers provided by the community is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and the fact that you can use them in iMessage is just- wow. One of the only huge problems I’ve had with the apps is crashing. I will sometimes do paid commissions on this app which can take up to three hours. It really angers me when I spend so much time on an edit just for the app to crash without literally anything I just did saving. Just a few hours ago I was doing a commission, and then the app crashed and the only thing that saved was the background. I had made a full on edit of two people just for it to vanish. Another problem I have with this app is having to pay to load fonts in- it’s really inconvenient because I have to load my edit into another free app, add text, reload the picture into PicsArt, and continue editing when I could save 10+ minutes by just being able to load in even a limited number of fonts before I have to pay. Another great option would be more fonts already in the app. I don’t think the selection has changed at all, if so very little since 2017. Anyways, great app! I would love if the developers would address some of these issues to make everyone’s experience amazing! Thank you, PicsArt!
Amazing and Easy to use but..
So the 3 stars is 5 for the actual functionality of the app. It is good, it does work. For all intensive purposes it is a photo editing app that works quite well. I was around before the premium membership and I enjoyed it far more. The ads are whatever I am used to it with free apps. What does bother me though is the new premium membership. Look I understand that you all worked hard on this app and that money is a thing people want. However this is a photo editing app, there is NO NEED to have to pay a MONTHLY membership for photo editing. You know what else charges monthly membership? Netflix, disney +, the ENTIRE adobe creative suite package, and many more services that offer way more than this app. Pay $5.99 a MONTH just for a few filters and no advertisements? That’s ridiculous. I wont pay for it and being bombarded every 5 seconds by and ad telling me to “go premium” is starting to annoy me. I used to recommend this app but now I can’t because I would feel like I am telling people to get the membership and I don’t think it’s worth it. Other apps have the exact same package of filters and editing tools with no ads for a ONE TIME payment. They do this for a reason because it’s a lot easier to convince 20 people to pay a $4.99 one time fee than a reoccurring payment every month. That’s my suggestion throw out this premium monthly plan and just make it a one time payment. I’d actually buy that.
Used to be my No. 1 photo app
I don't know what happened to this app... I have been using this app since it FIRST came out... That has to be at LEAST 10 years, but pretty sure much longer than that even. I loved that it was free, but I purchased sticker packs and other items here and there. Now I can barely use it. When I am trying to use it on my iPad, literally EVERY 30 seconds it launches Safari and some random window with spam... Including invitations to naked photo sharing (definitely not something I have looked up independently) and every other spam window possible. Not even just pop up ads, which are annoying enough, but kicking me OUT of PicsArt and into Safari (which is NOT my default browser) and then into some spam or virus link taking me to web page telling me I've won something, or want me to buy something completely unrelated to PicsArt. It's impossible to do a project because I am kicked out every 30 seconds; and there are plenty of other free apps out there that I can do the same work with... So... Sheesh... Unless that stops I can't use this again.
I just looked at Safari which I never use and in the few hours I just used PicsArt to try to do project, it opened more than 200 browser windows in Safari, one for each time it kicked me out...
I was actually thinking of getting the paid subscription but these ad links worry me so much that I am concerned with their information collection.
Amazing app but...
I got this app because I just wanted to edit pictures and I didn’t realize that you could share pictures and that makes it better but I also didn’t realize that I would get bombarded with premium ads EVERY SINGLE TIME I ENTERED THE APP and every time I tried to post something and that it would send me back home when I try to post a picture. Also, whenever I entered the app it would want me to explore certain things, and I did that, but the next day, when I enter the app, it pops up again and the next day again etc. I love the pictures I edited but it’s just so glitchy and it says that there is no connection when I have a data plan, WiFi, and connection. And when I was editing my very first picture of my BFF and I that I wanted to send to my BFF, it didn’t let me share it, it just went straight to home.
Look, I know you want money, but no one is going to do premium if it is $8.99 a month. That’s just straight up RIDICULOUS! I’m not paying that much just to edit some pictures. Instead, it should be $8.99 for the whole price, people shouldn’t have to pay $8.99 a month they should only have to pay $8.99 once. And besides, what’s the whole point of premium when it’s just a photo editing app?
Again, I love the app but just too many premium ads and it just sends me home and it says I don’t have connection when I have a data plan, WiFi, and connection.
The app crashing 😐
ITS SO ANNOYING when the app crashes yes I love the app it’s amazing to use as an editor I am the app is amazing but ONE problem this app has is that I’ve made pieces that I’ve worked so hard on HOURS ON and the app freezes or crashes and closes out if the app because if that I loose all of my hard work it’s really annoying as an editor it frustrates me and I have a reason to be mad so please fix this right away i know other editors as well have this issue and are annoyed with it please at least add a feature where it saves your progress automatically so you don’t loose any of your work thag you spend hours on in very disappointed I came here today because of this problem. I was working on an edit I spent an hours and the app crashed making me loose all of my progress I hate it :( so please fix this it’s been going on for months and it’s really getting on my nerves right now so please I ask again fix it or add a feature that saves your progress instead of the app crashing and freezing this is why I stop using the app because if this so yeah that’s it other than that the app is great for editing since I am a Instagram editor it’s amazing really but I hate when the app crashes and I get mad so that’s it I hope you can fix this right away or i will stop using the app like💔
I have a few problems if they get fixed I’ll give it a 5 star
So I’ve had this for a few months now and I’ve learned how to use it better but there’s a few things I need to talk about. Like how just today I was making a little anime edit for my sister and it was one of those pictures where there is multiple of the faces everywhere and it kept crashing, and I kept having to redo it but it just kept crashing so I stopped trying to make that. Then I was making this solar system thing or which I was going to, but then I look up “solar system” and all the doodle plants had to be paid for and I was going to do a doodle picture. So what I’m trying to say is there are to many times the app crashes and to many things that I need have to be paid for. Oh and I even saw a review that asked to make it a bit less crashy but did that happen? Oh and with the crashing again I need it to be when it crashes for it to save my work. It takes me SO long and it doesn’t save it? And for the paying... please make just a bit less stuff not have to be paid for if you can’t fix that one I really understand 😅. But for the crashing you need to get to that. So I hope you fix these problems and I may make this a 5 star ⭐️.
BE WARNED!! Dishonest
The app is great, however I’m having trouble with the company’s dishonesty. The app promoted a 30 day free trial. I’ve had the app before but I’ve had it for many years and I didn’t know if I’d ever had a free trial before, but it didn’t occur to me that that even mattered because it offered me a free trial. I accepted with the plan to pay monthly after the trial was up because I’m low on money this month and am expecting my tax return early next month.
MY CARD WAS CHARGED IMMEDIATELY UPON INSTALL OVER $60 FOR AN ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP! No warning was given that I would be charged, I selected FREE 30 DAY TRIAL!! It said I would be charged AFTER THE TRIAL but it charged me IMMEDIATELY! When I reached out to customer service they said it was because I’d already had a free trial so it automatically renewed by membership. I did NOT authorize that and when I asked for a refund they said they can’t do refunds and to contact Apple support.
Now I will say, they got back to me very quickly and were polite, but they basically stole over $60 from me and said “oh sorry there’s nothing we can do”. I hope Apple gets back to me ASAP, but I’m very put off by this. SO BE WARNED, IF YOU’VE ALREADY HAD A FREE TRIAL EVEN IF IT WAS YEARS AGO, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOU A RENEWAL IF YOU SELECT ANOTHER FREE TRIAL (even if it gives you the option for a free trial), and there will be NO WARNING THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE CHARGED!!!
Good editing but glitchy
By hannah m. k
I really love this app and have had it for a while now and i just found out that once you log in you are able to participate in editing challenges which i absolutely love. But recently when i have been editing my photos to participate in the challenges the app has started to lag and freeze up on me. ( i know that it is not my wifi connection either) this is happening when i by accidentally do something and then want to undo it and then it glitches out. The last time this happened i was working on a photo for a challenge and i was all done just adding the last thing and then i messed up and went to undo the mistake, then the app froze on me. i got out of the app but didn’t clear the tab and when i went back on it said it was uploading my project and then turned into the original piece that i was trying to remix. i had spent hours trying to make the edits and get it perfect and then in a few quick seconds it was all gone. i was so disappointed and i almost cried because i had worked so hard on it. this recently happened again a few days after, and i really hope you can fix it because after working so hard and so long on a edit and then having it glitch out if very frustrating.
A lot of people are saying it should be more in the social media recommendation and I totally agree. In my opinion it’s a really good app and there are a lot of features that you can choose from. The only thing I have a problem with is it’s safety. There are a lot of ways people can bypass the filters on the comments and easily say nasty stuff. Also, when you’re editing a photo that you want to post you can add text to it. The add text feature does not having any filter whatsoever, so people can put a bunch of dirty things on there. It’s rated 12+ but with my experience kids even younger have been getting into this app which is not okay. There are a lot of people on PicsArt who just try and be a creep for no reason whatsoever. I had to deleted my whole account just so I could get away from some of the garbage people posted on there. Despite my rough experience this with app, I would have to say there are still a lot of people on it that can make your day. When I had to delete my account I was so sad and disappointed. There were a lot of amazing people on it that would lift your spirit but those that were negative, inappropriate and rude really made it hard to like the app as much as I wanted.
