I’ve been using Polarr since late 2016, and for the most part it’s been pretty great, with a few bugs in between and issues with the quality, but the problems were fixed quite quickly. I purchased Polarr Pro’s selective adjustments in around 2017 and it worked fine, but recently with the new Polarr SO many new issues have risen. The first time I updated it to the new Polarr, it would not let me save any of my selective adjustments. Gradient, color masks, none of them would save. Sometimes it would crash, other times it wouldn’t even save as the filter I had filtered it as, but instead another filter I had previously made?? Recently, a few issues have been fixed but new problems have started. Everything including gradient and radial all work with my purchases but when I add the color scale to a color mask, it doesn’t save. The color mask is still there, but the actual color scale is zero. Please fix these issues, or bring back the old Polarr and work on the new one on the side. So many new issues that me and quite a few of my friends who have been using it for a long time are giving up on it.
I bumbled across this app in an earlier inception a few years ago and have watched it slowly, steadily improve, and noticed that the developers are constantly working on making upgrades then communicating those outright. This reason alone shows me a successful company behind the app. That being said, I am very happy with many of the filters and find each are well organized into categories making it easy to work with my landscape photos, however, I agree with another user’s feedback about the healing tool. I wish it was a little bit more precise and could offer more options such as where the healing section is copying from, radius, etc. On occasion I will run into a glitch where I have to shut down the program and restart in order to continue functioning. This often happens when I am using several filters. Overall I’m very happy and I would recommend Polarr Pro for anyone who wants to enhance their photos. Keep up the good work guys, I’m happy to have this in my app folder, and to be able to contribute my thoughts and experiences. I believe you read each and every comment and are endeavoring to respond when necessary.
I’ve tried and tested many editing apps, and since I don’t use the premium version, many of them weren’t good. The other apps were just so bad, the picture ended up looking overly saturated and super cheesy. The only way you could have edited well on those apps are if you used the premium feature, and they were expensive! After testing many apps and almost giving up, I found Polarr. The editing actually looks natural and pretty and the functions and tools are really easy to use. Ultimately, my pictures ended up looks beautiful! The only request or frustration I have with this app is that there is no home screen so the only pages you have is the photo you are editing, which bothers me a little. But in terms of the editing quality, this app is perfect for me!
i’ve been using polarr for over a year now and it’s always served me well. i’d been putting off writing a review for polarr for a good amount of time now though because polarr itself is a great app, i just thought my problem would’ve been mentioned by other users and been fixed by now, but my problem still exists. the app itself is very easy to use and has TONS of features to use for pretty much every type of photo. my problem is that after editing and exporting maybe 6 photos at a time (individually instead of with the batch export feature), when i try to open another picture polarr either freezes and crashes or very tightly crops the photo (usually when there is a face in the picture). i don’t think it has to do with the hardware polarr is being running on. this has been happening to me for a few months now on my ipad pro and even recently on a new iphone.
For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it's implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job. The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can't use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn't perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I've been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I've tried.
