Shockingly bad
I was expecting this app to be amazing based on all the reviews. But there are too many negative features to count. The user interface isn't nearly as intuitive or as well designed as it should be. The buttons are very small/close together (and I'm not old) & the menus need to be simplified and yet still include all of the current features. Doing something very simple is made much more complicated and difficult than it should be. When editing a photo, you don't get to see a live preview of what you're doing. You just have to keep guessing till you land on a good spot on the sliders. You also can't see the full photo when you're editing it. That's a HUGE drawback for me. There are lots of small design problems that are difficult to explain. The way you select the main look of your photo (blue vintage, pop art, etc) is strange for me. Nothing about the arrangement of most anything in this app is well thought out, in my opinion. The tilt shift lens editing is difficult as well. Sometimes the sliders you're working with fall out of frame & you can't see them anymore (like you can in photoshop). Simple finger gestures just don't work like you'd think they would in any other app. I could go on, but I'll finish by saying that although this app has the option to be several different types of cameras (split frame, the 4 lens pop camera, etc.), none of these function in the same way that their real life counterparts do. The aspect ratio of the iPhone camera is used, not the aspect ratio of the original cameras (which is the entire point.. at least to me). Another example is that when using the split frame camera, you cannot pause in between shots. The point of the camera is to be able to take one photo.. and then maybe wait minutes or hours to take the next one. There are so many things wrong, I'm getting tired trying to list them. Basically a waste of money. I really really want to love this app & I truly hope you make these changes because I actually do like a bunch of the effects. But the way to those effects makes the end product not worth it. Edit: you also can't move your photo within the border options. This is ridiculous. Please change at least this one thing!

I love shuffling!
Great photo app. Picture show and Camera+ are the best ones.

Its decent. Wish I could give a more elaborate review, but I'm struggling to find the words. Decent, but still, there's better apps out there.
