I see all the Bad reviews for this App so I decided to see for my self. 1, they do have a subscription page to show you the purchase options. There is a big X at the top left of the screen to close the page out. It's just that easy. Your not forced to buy anything to use it. 2 the Effects are pretty good. Many you have to pay for but I was still able to create and export a really cool image. You need to shoot images with a bright empty background for best results for sky's. Learn how to use it!

I hate deception. You can explore the features of this app but you cannot save one thing unless you pay. Please make that very clear up front before I waste my time. By the way, the tool they demonstrate that removes unwanted parts of your photo is also deceptive. If you look at their examples, you will note there is incredible contrast between what they're removing and the rest of the photo. That's the only way this works well. If you try it and there are similar colors in your photo in the part you're trying to remove, you will have nothing but a mess.

It is awful at erasing stuff, all of the filters and overlays are on photoshop and various other free to use programs. It's free to download and yeah you can see how the features work but you can't save anything. Usually when a program has buyable features along side free ones, you can at least use some of them. I just wanted to try it out. I'm willing to pay money for things if they're actually usable. This is not. Also $60? For stuff you can get free on other apps? Not worth it.

Thanks for writing in, we'd like to clarify. You don't have to pay to use Lightleap! The app is free to download and includes many editing tools you can use at no cost. There are also Pro tools that require making a purchase, but that's optional and up to you. As long as you stick to the free tools, you will be able to save any edit - for free!
