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.
Love the App but Hate All the Issues
By Sneaky Sneaky 101
I can create so many amazing pieces, however, the issues with the app are starting to outweigh the positives. I’ve lost so many pieces due to the app crashing and/ freezing, loosing connectivity, and more. There have been times I have submitted 3 pieces for a challenge, only to not show them at all. Sometimes I catch it before the deadline, and resubmit, but recently I did this 3 times for the same challenge in until they finally stayed. Besides all the crashing, whoever reviews the submissions need to be fired. I have submitted work only to be told it did not meet guidelines etc when it clearly did. I have been told it is a pure photography when the photo hasn’t been edited at all. I emailed about the technical issues, have answered the questions over and over , but keep getting asked the same questions or asked for screenshots.... how am I supposed to screenshot the app crashing when there isn’t any warning. It can happen as soon as I log in, or after I’ve been in the app for a while. Yes I have cleared the app, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, used the app on different iPhones, iPads etc.. yes the app is up to date, and iOS is up to date. I’ve tried on iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE 2020, iPhone XR, and iPad 10.2 7th gen ... all had same issues. Starting to feel like developers would rather blame users, rather than fix the app.
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.
Most features of any media editor I have seen!
This app gets the job done. It has the best cutout tool I have seen, has a crap ton of stickers, frames, live generated music, video editing features, gives unlimited previews of Gold features without purchase (to check if those features are worth it), has tons of effects, green screen tools, color replacement, and much more. The layout when editing is flawless and there are no crashes. The $50 a year for Gold would 100% be worth it if I had the money, however the amount of great free tools makes it almost obsolete!
PicsArt is great! A request I have for the devs would be the addition of a heal tool (there is one similar called blemish) however this tool would be more similar to the “Spot Heal” tool from Adobe Photoshop Fix. Also, a great addition to this app would be the Fill tool in the drawing tab (this fills empty space distinguished by color). Lastly, shapes are unable to be moved or changed after they have been drawn in with the shape drawing tool and then un-selected. It would be great if the ability to drag these shapes around was added.
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 ⭐️.
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.
