Poetic Love ✭✭✭✭✭
by Kari Vasquez on Jan 9, 2011 version 1.0.1 in iTunes Store
“FAST! Gorgeous! Up until now I used hipstamatic, instagram, and camera bag for effects, and this app is by far my favorite of all of them. I don’t like hipstamatic because you cannot use an image you already took in your camera or save a ‘clean original’ if you will; camera bag is awesome but limited in effects options; instagram is ok but mostly about sharing. This puts everything in one, has numerous brilliant filter options, not to mention the experience of using the app is delightful with the beautiful design sounds and filter names. Its an iphone app, and everything an iphone app can deliver up to the point of getting yourself a separate non cell phone camera and photo-shoppping your photos yourself. I can see this app going places, its done quite well. And, like I said, the speed is amazing. Lavacado studios and Trey Ratcliff did an amazing job. This is a quality product I recommend.”

“Even bland, insipid photos with poor lighting, like my demonstration photo of an Apple mouse, can be transformed…. The possibilities are almost limitless, which makes the app an easy one to come back to, even without the social features… The poetic filter names are a treat, giving it personality and warmth. Overall, an inspiring app at a bargain price…” Read the whole review!
LOS ANGELES TIMES
“The 100 Cameras in 1 app turns ordinary iPhone photos into creative images worthy of framing.”
A Brilliant and Thorough Review by Joseph Neinstedt
“The results are simply amazing, and it becomes almost too easy to create images that would take a good level of expertise in Photoshop to replicate through more traditional techniques.” – Read the whole review!
ABSOLUTELY STUNNING ✭✭✭✭✭
by franwhite on Jan 3, 2011 version 1.0 in iTunes Store
“I had read about this app before I even knew I was getting an iPad for my 10th anniversary. I raced to download this app FIRST because I was so excited to try it. You will not be disappointed, actually should cost more! Thanks so much for creating an app that does just what the description says!”
Lost sleep over this App ✭✭✭✭✭
by Leonard Veleff on Jan 13, 2011 version 2.0.1 in iTunes Store
“Downloaded recently and starting having soooo much fun I barely slept. Very glad I purchased it. Tons of filters and quality results from each one. If you love taking photos and you love photoshop this is a must buy. In addition, I’m very impressed with the design interface and the over all feeling I get from it….Can’t wait to play some more!”

“What it does: Turns an ordinary iPhone photo into a creative image worthy of framing. Worth it: Absolutely. If you like CameraBag for customizing photos, you’ll enjoy upping the ante with this app.”
