I used Mirrorgram (which turned into SparkMode, which itself no longer exists) in the past and loved it, but now it has mysteriously disappeared from not only the App Store, but my iTunes library as well. After some digging, I found Hyperspektiv, which is apparently the new focus/model of the former two apps. And so after purchasing, I was expecting to use the old functions that Mirrorgram/SparkMode included. But unlike the description (and The Wall Street Journal review, and the The Creators Project review) claims, it DOES NOT have photo support. Only video. And this is incredibly frustrating to me because not only is that downright blatant false advertising, but now I have no app that functions the way Mirrorgram used to. Which is just great, because I don't work much with video... I'm a photographer.
like many i have been using this app for a while and find this new subscription stuff to be a real downturn. i really like this app would otherwise give it 4-5 stars but i can’t support this new change. being able to save your own work in hd quality should be a free part of the basic functionality of any app and sadly used to be possible with this app without paying a subscription, very lame. this should have at least been a feature that existing users should have been grandfathered into. i would be willing to entertain a one time fee per new feature but simply will never pay a monthly subscription and this will sadly result in me using this app less and less until i just delete it. i really hope that you all reconsider these bad moves or at least do something like grandfather already existing users into this. make saving in hd a core part of the free service as it was previously. add one time fees for unlimited saving of wildcards etc. i would be fine if you charged a subscription for updated and new filters (i wouldn’t probably ever do this but i am sure some would) but it would be better to just constantly create new filters that people could pay one time fees for if they want them without angering your older loyal users. again hope you all reconsider because i really do like this app.
Anyone looking to buy this, please do not. Boycott subscription based apps! This was a beautiful app that most of us actually PAID for. There were so many awesome hi quality filters that was deleted to make room for a subscription platform. This is bait and switch, and its so sad. Developers- You all are a major disappointment. I upgraded to the newest version and LOST all the filters I loved from the original. I get that you wanted to offer a subscription option to make more money, but to do it by removing filters I loved using? Subscription options, seriously, that should be a different page entirely. To remove your best filters from the original paid version, which I bought I complete and utter BS! You want more money, then be smart and have an in app option that allows users to buy all these new filters and features at one simple price. The subscription platform is the kiss of death, and being that I was an early adopter and supporter of your impressive work...I do hope this apps life is threatened due to this greedy and amateurish, move. If cant get the version of your app that I fell in love with, Back, soon in a new update, I’m gonna accept the investment loss and delete your app. My words are harsh and brutal for one reason and one reason ONLY! I really loved your work and what this app was.
UPDATE: Don’t get this at all. The developers turned into leeches and implemented PAID subscription. I bought this awhile back (for about $4 I believe...) and I’m sad that this is the route you guys took. Please get rid of it, and maybe make the overall price for the app higher if you want some more money. Old Review (ignore...) I know asking for more is heard a-lot. But can you add a feature that we can use VR in the app. Just like the other review, to immerse ourselves in the app. Also, can you add a feature where we can make our own crazy filters and save them. The ability to save the random filters too. Maybe y’all can add more filters in the future! This app is great! Only complaint is I can’t choose photos to edit. Nor will photos save. This app just updated, and you said you fixed it. However it wasn’t fixed for me. I’m on an Ipad air. I’ll check again.
My only complaint about this killer app over the past few years had been that there was no way to save or recall the wildcard settings, which are often some of the best effects you’ll find. This recent update finally incorporated that ability and then some. I’m not quite sure what’s up with the legacy filters and the monthly subbing option, but so far the update is awesome! Nice job, KOMRADES! below is my previous review - ☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭☭ really great app. given that the wildcard option gives the best results, i would ask the developers to allow the saving of these settings that are randomly generated. it seems like every time i find a great setting i'm bummed out that i can't reuse it. there is always another setting around the corner, but 20 in between that are kinda worthless for what i'm doing. that would bring it to 5 stars - no doubt. (Update - it’s totally worth 5 stars even without the ability to save the randomly generated settings)
