Great app

I've had the "big lens" app now for years and it has never let me down without a doubt very, very, simple to use... Really mimics those high dollar 35mm lens and allows you to turn good pictures into great pictures with ease!!

Too Bad

I downloaded this app when it first came out and always loved it. I see it hasn’t been updated in a few years. That’s too bad because it always worked and was good. I see now, some features aren’t working at all. Either update or take it down.

Update Update Update!

This app at one time was one of the most powerful apps at one time for creating blur and making photos look DSLR like in it's depth of field. Now the recent updates have killed the app. Everybody has complained about the zoom. What's more the app is very outdated and needs an upgrade. This app hasn't been upgrade since January of this year and is falling behind badly. Please revamp and update ASAP.

Money Saver

I have been using this app for years and I love it. The paint brush use to have the ability to get much smaller which allowed me to create a photo that looked like it was taken with a professional camera. With a lot of practice, you can ensure that the blurred lines and focus lines meet perfectly. The only thing I would want changed is the ability to make the paint brush smaller than the current smallest setting. Other than that, this app is the only reason I got the 8 instead of the 8 plus to save some money each month. I basically only use my phone to text, take pictures and post pictures to social media. Doesn’t make sense to pay an absurd amount of money per month just to get the portrait mode on my phone. I hope you will make this change!!

Manual focus

Thank you for supporting MP pics - now when you zoom in and try to fine edit where the focus/blur is, the size of the red dot doesn't get small enough and it gets sloppy....

Needs a better update.

I've been using this app for a long time now and I've been very impressed with its tuning and editing features of forced field of depth. I got to say that this app has been one of the top most impressive photography apps I ever used and it's a shame that not a lot of people can take advantage of the wonderful features of bokeh manipulation provided. It truly has improved my photography a lot over the years with great results. But recently, the new update has made an occurrence on the brushing size that I'm not able to completely control when I draw. Especially when it's zoomed. I hope you can fix the problem and tune this app to its potential. Don't give up on this creation. Keep updating us no matter what, however you can. -Alex

Works awesome but...

Everything about the app works great. It does exactly what I would want except for one detail. The exif data is lost when you export the picture out. So I wish there was a toggle or setting or something that would preserve that data.

Locks up when sharing

The share picture feature has a problem. Selecting a method of sharing “sometimes” works, but more than not, the dialogue screen just locks up. The only way to exit is to swipe up and kill the app

Amazing results

It works great for me on my iPhone 6S+. I'm not sure why other users are having issues.I am able to change brush sizes and the app is optimized for my screen. Yes, the EXIF data is lost after editing a photo. Maybe they can fix that with a future update. Other than that, this app performs well and is very stable.

Was great, needs updating

This has been my go to app for adding a blur mask to my photos. There really isn't anything that comes close.It does need an update however. It's not optimized for the Plus model screen and the brushes don't change size when you zoom in to get fine control over your blur. It makes it very hard to get the look you want. Please fix these two issues.
