This is pretty horrible. My phone is more the capable to run this application and it's still buggy. The choices are limited and the picture quality is sub par at best.

This isn't just a bad app. This app is a war crime. This app, has the most unrealistic and unbelievably bad effects imported from the time of king oomba goomba and portrayed as a photography app. It has the worst motion tracking of any AR app ever, and it isn't even uninstallable in my Sony phone. I prefer to sell my soul to Satan instead of launching this app and I would gladly do that.

I love AR effect but it needs more filters on the mascrade 1⃣ because thta is very boring 💤. Also I don't like how you need to download 3/4 of the filters so can you please fix that cause I don't like it. AR effect is good and well made just has some problems to me.
