Like other reviewers, I’ve been using this app for years to edit pictures. And now since the most recent update, I noticed one of my favorite (free) filters was gone. Then I realized nearly half of the free filters were removed! This was such a great free app to use, and I always recommended it to people. I tried the premium free trial before, and I even paid for it for a few months because I liked the extra features. But I decided that I didn’t need to be spending the extra money, and would continue to just use the free features because they were enough for me. But now it seems like InstaSize is only in it to get money out of people. Rather than providing a great free app for people to quickly edit pictures on the go (and choose to pay for the premium services/add-ons at their OWN convenience), it’s now a never-ending stream of ads trying to convince you to pay for their premium service, all while slowly taking away more “free” features, until you have no choice but to pay. 👎🏻
I installed instasize a very long time ago because I could edit videos as well as pictures using cool filters and editing tools. I do remember that I had problems with ads in the past and that I was working with a very limited editing and filter selection, which made me extremely sad. So I deleted the app. It resurfaced on my dash because some of my friends started downloading this app. It was advertised so well that I thought of getting this app again. I was offered over 80 filters and cool editing tools and I could not believe it. So I downloaded it and I instantly regret it. In order to use the app to its full creative extent, I have to pay unnecessary money. I have an even more limited amount of filters than when I first downloaded the app, and I can barely even get through editing a picture without so many ads popping up. Honestly, it’s like the app is infested with ads. I would have considered the continual use of it bad there been an upfront price I could pay instead of a subscription. This ain’t some high end product deserving of even considering a subscription. It’s best to just stick with VSCO because there at you least have a good amount of filters, there aren’t ads, and no subscription. They have options to purchase filters and the prices are manageable. This app has disappointed me a second time and I won’t let there be a third time. A waste of space on my phone.
Honestly I love using this app! It gives me the option of using soo many things for free! I would however love if their were more backgrounds available... for example like a birthday background or a celebration background for those special pictures that you want to post about someone else's birthday or even yours! THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME BACKGROUND!! Keep up the good work! ***UPDATED MY APP SO NEEDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW*** I do love that the creators of this app took my advice on adding Birthday backgrounds that you can customize and new backgrounds for certain holidays. I’m disappointed that they took that and decided you can only add those certain filters if you pay for the app for every month or if you do the trial. I remember that you used to be able to download them and use them for the holidays and they would disappear after a certain time. Oh well. As much as I love this app because it’s so easy to use it looks like I might need to look into a new app for my pictures. It was good while it lasted. Thank you for considering my ideas though. It’s nice to know that their are people that listen to one persons feedback.
I’ve been using this app since I have had an instagram to edit my photos, make them square without cropping, and make collages. I loved this app for these features. I have never bought any of the filter packs or paid for a premium membership since I’m not an instagram model or have any reason to put too much effort into editing pictures. However, this app still advertises the presence of a free membership, but does not seem to allow even basic use without premium membership. I have only been trying to use this app to place photos on a square, white background so I could post them without cropping. Whenever I try to download the image, a pop up comes up advertising the premium membership, but there is no way to skip, continue, or otherwise leave this add without closing out of the app. My question is: why advertise a free, basic membership but not allow users to actually use basic functionality? I have been using and have loved this app for years, but it looks like I’ll have to find a different one.
I typically only use this app to resize my photos for IG. None of the fancy filters or borders just a plain white background so there’s zero need for me to purchase the subscription. However, I uninstalled the app today because they make the subscription button THE BIGGEST BUTTON on the page when you first open the app. When I accidentally clicked it today and then tried to just hit my home button to get out of the app my fingerprint and payment was approved and BOOM! I had a subscription without even opting for one 🙃 if it wasn’t for the 7 day trial period my card would’ve been charged before I could’ve cancelled the subscription. Seems to me with it being the biggest of the two buttons on the screen that they’re banking on people accidentally hitting it and signing up for a subscription that they didn’t even care for. I understand the need to advertise for it to make a profit but don’t be skeezy about it. If I could report this app I would and I’ll be using a different app for my resizing needs from now on.
