"Here's a new update." = "We sold out to advertisers." In a world where every skyline, every ocean view, every mountain vista, every second of every day is infested with non-stop commercial advertising; prisma used to be clean and pure. Now, the developers hold you captive as you are forced to view ads while your photos are being processed. I've had this app installed longer than any other, but after I submit this review, it is being uninstalled; and I encourage anyone reading this to go elsewhere. It's a pity.
I used to love this app until the new updates now I can't use half the filters! It freezes a lot, it takes forever just to use a filter. I choose a picture and then a filter then it bounces back and asks me to pick a picture, which I already did. I tried contacting someone about the issues which was difficult and haven't heard back.... I'm not impressed with the changes. If a new update fixes these issues I will update my rating.
Before the latest update in December 2017, I would have given this 4 stars. I love what it does, but it would freeze up or dump me out every 4-5 edits. However, since the update, every time they show an ad, ehoch is about 80-90% off the time, it is guaranteed to dump me out. Look, I can live with ads; it is a free app, I am a cheapskate, and they need to keep the lights on somehow. However, the ads have rendered to app unusable. I hope they get the message from this onslaught of bad reviews and fix whatever the big is soon.
So when Prisma was first introduced, I fell in love with the app. Paid for it up front because I knew it was something special. Now, all of a suddenly, I'm getting ads in-between each picture change? Seriously? Does Google know you take people's money and then down the road slap them with ads that they ALREADY paid to have removed. I'll be letting Google Play Services know of this practice.
**WARNING** - Since the most recent update, this app now has a TON more intrusive addons. The 2 that are the most concerning are the advertising addon, AppNext, which spies on your location, and the analytics addon, Ogury, which monitors your online usage when you're not even using the app! I urge everyone to immediately delete Prisma unless a photo editing app tracking your every move doesn't bother you.
Ads now everytime i try to edit n whats wrong with ths server, bunch of other apps able to access my internet and this always either shows server busy or check your internet. This has been my best app but it seems its time to check on othersl apps too, unfortunately :(
