Love this app! So many different filters! I just have so much fun using this. My selfies always turn out so good on here. Truly the only bad vibe in here is, if you don't have the money to pay the subscription, after every photo you take an ad pops up. You have to wait for the ad to finish before you can take another photo, every single time. So it can be time consuming. I plan to just pay the subscription, it's not really a lot! It's worth it.πŸ“· πŸ©·β­πŸ“ΈπŸ’ŽπŸ’―

(Update) No longer works, just crashes after the newest update. Uninstalled :( (Original) Retrica is one of the few free photo apps that allows full use of my 8mp camera. It actually saves photos, with a filter applied, at my full resolution. That in itself is kinda awesome. The filters are all pretty unique and interesting. I really like how Retrica catches the "feeling" of special moments. That is exactly what you want in a camera app. It does have a long delay in saving each picture though.

I was excited to see an app that recreated the classic Instagram experience, but... 1) The ads are very intrusive. It's often not clear how to close them. 2) The paid filter subscription nag is obnoxious. If you try to publish a photo with a filter, you are sent to a subscription screen with no explanation. When you use a filter there is no explanation of which are free. 3) Signing up for an account was confusing. I would not recommend this app to my late boomer friends.
