User Reviews for AfterFocus

Tweak app

You should give the user the ability to draw on the subject, and lift the pen or fingertip off without highlighting the entire subject. The addition of a "NEXT" button to do just that would be much more convenient. It allows us to see better when doing detailed works on the subject, such as drawing on areas of the subject that aren't meant to be blurred

Do one thing, but do very well!

I use this app to make my photos more lively. It is very easy to select people or objects in a photo using the smart selection tool, and its UX is great. You will instantly know how to use it; very intuitive. Facing out background adds way better effect than I expected. Two thumbs up!

Still works and it's great

Was worried about buying an app that hasn't been updated in 3 years but it worked great. I am using an iPhone 8 Plus on iOS 13 and it worked flawlessly. Probably the best option on an iPhone for blurring backgrounds. I was very impressed.

Because of this app I don’t have to buy a bigger or more expensive iPhone.

After using this app I realize I don’t have to buy a bigger or more expensive iPhone for Portrait mode. This thing does just as good if a job, if not better. I love it. Update: I have an iPhone X and I still prefer to use this because I can get my blurring details just right. Still absolutely love this app.QUESTION: where did the developers of this app go??? It hasn’t been updated in two years. This app is amazing I just want to see it get better.

One of the best

This app has been worth every penny and more. Everyone that I've sent my pictures to has been impressed with the look of the pictures. I am just an average photo taker, but with this app pictures can look like a professional. It was extremely easy to use and navigate. At first I was just looking for an app to blur the background in some of my pictures, but this app can do that and so much more. I've now find myself just looking through my photo album to look for other pictures I like that I can modify as well. Definitely one of the best photo apps out there!

It strips out metadata

Works pretty well, especially if you take your time to carefully mask the areas you want to blur. I’ve used it a long time and will continue to until I find a similar app that leaves my metadata intact. As a photographer, it’s pretty important to have that info for photos in my catalog and galleries. So, only 3 stars from me. However, it’s great for quick social media posts if you don’t care about preserving metadata.

Pretty Good, thumbs up

Just got this app because I wanted to touch up some selfies to use as profile pics. I usually take selfies on snap or Instagram because of the nice filters, but then you don’t get to take advantage of the portrait mode on your phone. This app did exactly what I needed it to. The “manual blur” is fast and easy to use and I love how it lets you change the amount of blur after you’ve cropped out the background

App review against its competitors

1st review - decent and well thought out. Give 4 stars so far. Against the other app this one seems to be slightly better. Although other app crashed and developer does not know why it's crashing will need more head2head testing on same photo before giving a second rating.2nd review against head2head photo. Have to downgrade this apps rating to 3 stars against other app at 4 stars even with other app crashing. Why? This app does NOT have a macro masking pop up viewer so you can actually trace outline of what you want to keep in focus. Using your fat finger user cannot see the mask. Sad. This app does have far more tools filters effects than other app. Yet cannot find the undo button when I made a background blur mistake. Developer give user a macro mask viewer window and an undo button and this app easy 4.5 stars!!

This app gives you fantastic EASY access to the 'pop out' focus/blur style of adjustments to your photos. Very smart app that has all the little tools and features you'll need to quickly achieve great effects. The default setting of overwriting your original photo should be changed before you use, if it's your wish to keep your original photo. FYI. Great app.

Makes photos “POP”!

I’ve been using this app for years! And I absolutely love how it makes the subject of your photo really stand out and pop against the background - it excels at getting rid of a very noisy backgrounds. My favorite use is a single subject/portrait and then motion blur and gray out the background. I’ve gotten some fantastic photos this way. And if I have a very clean line around my subject I will put the “sticker” effect on for some drama and it just looks great. It would be nice to be able to change the color of that white sticker outline though - maybe a future enhancement? Really great app for what it does. Five stars all the way!! Very nice job developers!!
