Sallyrena - I have had this app for a long time
I have loved this but all of a sudden it dose not work . I have asked for help they just give me a lot of junk that only a lawyer could read When it has worked I really loved it but right now I so upset because I can’t get it to work . It’s a google app and they want me to buy an upgrade. When it works it’s a 4 Star now it’s a one star! This app contact me to clarify what was going on. The error was mine not theirs. I still don’t fully understand as I use the app for a very long time. But it appears that I had not paid for that app so I appreciated them contacting me and clarifying what was going on. I would give this app a very strong 5 stars and do appreciate contact with them with clear and easy to understand information about what had been going on
Łïzziē - Just no.
Selfish app creators. How do you have a “free” option with limited stuff “which Is decent limited stuff” but only allow us to “preview” our edits??? Then when we go to save the photo we edited with your “so called free” limited edition or whatever you would call it, it does NOT allow you to save a picture you edited using their “free” option. It tries to make you pay for it. So what I use to do was screenshot the photo I edited with the FREE option. But since the app creators are selfish they seriously put a block on screenshots 😂😑 don’t ask me how the hell they did that but that obviously doesn’t stop us 🤷🏻♀️ they forget how advanced & updated IPhones are now a days. A screenshot block didn’t block me from still claiming my “so called free edits” ya know the one they offer to you for FREE but then try to get you once you’re done editing your hphoto😂😂 I’m just making this review to let people know that this app isn’t all that. And how it has false advertising & how the creator really thought they would be able to not allow me to keep the photo I just edited 😂😂 there’s other ways of saving what’s on your screen other then a screen shot. “It was worth a shot though” 😉 but seriously people the App Store has way better and FREE editing apps that have the same exact options as this one & more. You cam, inshot, filterra-(my fave one ) Also love image effect edit lab. 🤓😏😏😏😋
Michael Krueger Voorhees - Destroyed photo + need email all of a sudden for support?
I went back to the app after editing a photo. I was maybe exited out of the app for 20 minutes and when I entered again and went to edit the same photo I thought it obviously saved. My changes to the photo had been permanently altered, and I had not completely exited out of the app or refreshed it. Instead of the regular photo it was supposed to save, it saved a weird screenshot including some of the editing tools inside the photo. I had the blue curve marks permanently around my face from when I was previously editing my same photo. I also had the rest of the options for tools and editing options taking up most of the top and bottom of the photo. My face was the only part of the photo that was visible and the original photo included my whole entire body. I tried contacting support but it told me that I needed to two add an email to my account. From the beginning I have logged in with my gmail account email and password to use the app, because of this requested email issue I have searched the settings and found there is no option to add an email; therefore I cannot contact support about this issue. I am currently paying for the monthly membership and to experience these issues is inconvenient. Hopefully someone will reach out to me about this issue. Thank you.
Vicobregond - Retouch and Paint features
I read a review prior to writing this one that discussed the same issues I’m having. I honestly think the developers of facetune are talented and have created an amazing app, however I don’t think its fair to suddenly update the app and start charging for two features that have allowed them to gain so many downloads: the retouch and paint option. I use this for work, for myself, and for friends who need help fixing photos. Frankly, I pay too many subscriptions to be able to afford another one just for these two options. I think that they can increase their revenue for the app by adding more features such as hair color or clothing (available through subscription) rather than charging for the ones that were once promises to be free. Please open these features up to free users again, those who can afford to continuously pay a subscription will pay for the other, new, and much cooler features you guys have been adding! App is great in use, no crashes, it was just this one thing.
P.S. it seems that the hype over facetuning that has been introduced by influencers has made the creators believe that they should suddenly start charging more for what they call a “selfie editing app”.
**1024** - Too many subscriptions
I have had this app for a very long time. It was my go-to app for touching up photos, changing filters, etc. but recently they updated the app and you are now forced to be a subscriber (meaning you have to pay) for certain options that originally, for a very long time, were free. I supposed that the creators of the app started catching on to the fact that some people were screenshotting their edited photos so as to not have to pay the ridiculous subscription fee (I don’t blame them for trying to screen shot anything. It’s ridiculous that you have to pay an outrageous price for something that was once free) and now you can’t even do that. If you try to screenshot it, a message pops up saying something along the lines of “nice try!” Or “it was worth a shot!” And telling you that you have to subscribe and pay a fee for that certain feature. Like I said before, I was a long time user of this app, I had it even before they switched it to “Facetune2”. But now with all these restrictions and fees, I have deleted the app and will no longer use it again unless they remove these recent restrictions and “features”. I hope this was helpful for anyone who plans on using it. It’s not a bad app if you’re willing to pay the outrageous amount they ask for small features.
Lexi partner - Can do pretty much nothing for free.
It is pretty terrible. The app works and all but in order to do anything you have to buy a membership like OMG WHAT!?! I tried to edit one photo but every time I tried to save the photo it it pulled up the join membership page. This app said u could use it and it would be for free but you really can’t. I just wanted to play around with some photos but I can’t. I tried to take screenshots of the photos but because of lines they added around your face I can’t have a good looking photo. Honestly the app is dumb. I would understand having to some money for things you want to use but not have a membership I was going to use this app what twice every three months? But now I am deleting the app. It is useless to me. At least if u r going to have the membership thing show what u have to have a membership to use. Also what about the people that already bought everything? Now they can’t use it unless they also buy the membership. There are plenty of free app editors that I can use instead. I would try out the original Face-tune but it already costs money and I have no clue wether I need a membership there too. This app was a waste of my time. I had to put it at least a one star but honestly this is a zero star from me.
MmmmhmOkaySurenotWhatever - Fantastic editor. Horrid layout
This app offers more features and tools to edit your most priced photos. Weather it is your kids , pets and loved ones, the app gets precise and Powerful editing abilities that most others do not. However having that said , the navigation layout is horrendously clumsy.
The original navigation layout for photos was much more organic and fluid. From loading freshly picked photos ready to edit in a pinch , it seems like now you have to tediously go back and fourth through unnecessary menus and drop down tabs . Just to get to your favorite tagged photos . There’s to much going on and it interrupts the user experience by managing though the thick and bulky layout of this app as it stands right now. Originally when the app was in its growing popular popularity stage , the menu layout from the start was easy to navigate , straight forward to editing your most recent pieces of works . Now it prioritizes their other user products such as the newly infant staged video editor . For now I’ll keep using , for other developers that know how to design welcoming UI take a note. 3 stars until the issue is improved
Amizingal11 - I’m so disappointed.
I NEVER write reviews but I’m so disappointed about the updated Facetune 2. This app was one of the best photo editing apps that I have ever seen. I usually use Adobe Photoshop (with my school acc) to edit my photography. However, the app for Adobe Photoshop is really confusing to me. Facetune 2 offered a free app that provided an easy-to-use Photoshop application to fix everyday pictures and make them look high quality. Then, they got greedy and decided to “make some things cost money” in order to provide new tools. The new tools are not relevant and nearly as usable as the ones that used to be free. Listen, the free version of Facetune 2 always had in-app purchases, which is totally understandable; Until they made the most crucial tools cost money. For example, the paint tool is a great way to brighten backgrounds subtly and enhance vibrant colors in pictures. It gave you free range to edit your hair color, eye color, shirt color, sky color, car color, etc. Then they decided to make it offered to members only. They did this with all the popular/needed tools and now the app is useless. I’ve switched back to Photoshop and FaceApp (which is free). I’m just so disappointed with the updates, maybe if they ever go back I’ll re-download. Until then it’s 0 stars from me.
_ctnguyening - You have to pay
Cool app. I never used and just wanna see what the ‘face tune era’ and everyone using the same edit and looking kinda alike. I didn’t get a chance to use cause I did free trail then it run out it today and I forgot to see like other cool things it can do. Hate that there’s no free anything and you have to pay to use. They should do some free stuff like 1/4 of options can be free so people can use the app then like 3/4 is premium where you pay the $10 a month or whatever. There’s so many app that’s better than this one and IS FREE. Why am I paying so much like $10. Not in this economy. If you to get most usage and customer listen to me and 1. Lower your monthly cost and not just the one year one only like you have. Lower the monthly even with 1 month. 2. Have some free options on there like other apps and then like 1/3 of the things or 1/4 is a free then the other 2/3 or 3/4 they have to pay for the membership. Better because then they’re using some stuff already and wanna make that commitment / sub because they see all the cool already like free stuff I should just try it so I can try these other stuff. Who does your sales/marketing? Terrible.
M89aria - I use to love this app
I started with the original, later paid for the second one and was quite happy with it even though periodically I had to relearn a feature because of an update or add on. Slowly the add ons became useless for me and the features I paid one time for weretaken away and replaced by an outrageous subscription to add back the useful features that took me some time to perfect along with all these newer items that were sub par and looked fake anyway. The best features were either taken away and now being charged again at a higher monthly rate or they were moved, modified or made less effective/ quality/ professional/believable/etc or buried in so many other layers of stuff that I quit using it. I try every now and then to see if they offer an alternative (closer to the facetune2 from a year ago at a reasonable price I would pay for using and be happy with). But its still leaning towards the canned presets and filters that so many others do. They used to-be so unique and semi-expert modifications could be made with precision that the professional apps could do with a lot less complicated processes. But I think they lost a lot of fans. Oh well maybe they will come out with a third one.
ClassicalCajun - Veiled promises and unrequited love
I used to love you, but you’ve backed out on the very promises our vows we’re based upon 💔 I don’t want make this about money. It’s really about the kids. We only started out wanting two, but those two became so greedy that we had to take on second jobs to support them, and now we have no time left in our relationship for the love that started us. Now I don’t know if I even love our kids anymore…
So the fun is over when I have to pay for what use to be a stellar, free app. Now the basic intuitive features of face “smoothing” and lighting and background editing are just trials, and if I still have to pay a monthly or annual fee for a subscription of mediocre cheap-looking effects. I keep checking back to see if these features have improved with upgrades/fixes and if there are improvements to the free setting. Not to date. I will continue reading pro-reviews to see if the subscription of $70 for this app outshines Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions and learning curves.
Emmy loves kittnes - The makeup features and Subscriptions
FaceTune, I used the app to practice makeup, not to pay to draw makeup on a character/human. The tools also won’t help or won’t attach to the right place when it’s clear and solid so it should. You also have way to many payed items to the point where you can literally just make your character smile and have glowing hair and some people really wanna practice makeup, now FaceTune 1 may have the feature but I am looking forward for FaceTune 2. I hate how almost everything you have to pay for. No one will use your app because how everything you have to pay. I’m 100% sure it had way better reviews when the new features of the subscription’s or blah blah blah wasn’t out. I still really hate how I can’t even practice makeup on a human!? You really think I will buy subscription’s no way! I don’t care if it’s 3 dollars I’m still mad because some people want it’s free because they don’t have the money! Sorry if the review didn’t make since or if it was mean but no one is gonna use your app if you have your subscriptions like this any longer so I recommend you change the app.
~Thank you for reading
Imposter kinda sus - not as good as before
I used to really, really like using this app for its free options. The retouch options were (and still are) mostly available, as were the reshape, and the paint option was probably my favorite, because there was so much you could do with it, from changing lighting on the face, fixing skin discoloration, or touching up or adding makeup. It was a game changer, and I couldn’t find another app that matched it in that regard.
I really relied on the retouch and paint features, the latter especially, and were the main reason I used and recommended the app to others. Now that it’s added new features and rendered some of those previously mentioned features - namely the paint option - only available through subscription, I’m enjoying it a lot less and looking into using other apps. I’m sure that the newer features would be useful to some people, but I kind of wish that I could have a choice to opt out of them + just retain use of the previous gestures without purchase. Idk. My rating went down a star because of these new added “perks” that are, in my opinion, a lot less useful.
Dixina_Pup - It’s.. not really free
Okay, I downloaded this app for fun. But I also thought it would be fun to just mess around with photos and make photos of myself... well... BETTER... So if you are reading this review before downloading this, the app itself might be free but to get all the good stuff you have to pay. Okay, MOST of the stuff you have to pay for! I would NOT recommend this for someone who is not willing to pay money (like me) and I know, you are probably telling me that “not everything is going to be free” and I know! I’m just saying most of the stuff you have to pay for which leads to some people deleting it (like me).
Also, I have tried some of the stuff you have to pay money for for free, and some of the stuff isn’t even good! It looks totally weird and photoshopped and looks unprofessional. Although some of the stuff works wonders and is really good. But I’m not sure if you are getting what you are paying for. Your paying for good quality! Not bad quality!
So these are things I am saying. Someone might have totally different thoughts on this game. But I will give this a two star. I deleted this but I am willing to try it again if things gets fixed. ⭐️⭐️
Hdkdekxix - it’s ok
I used to really like this app for some basic photo editing but they’ve added two features (paint and retouch) that were previously free to the subscription package. There are still features that I like but taking away these two features that were already free (esp since I really liked and used the paint feature to add more vibrancy to photos) was a bit of a turn off so I’m gonna look for a new editing app since I feel that the few free features that are left can be found others that have more to offer.
Like I get it they need to make money but to be honest I only use the app for very basic photo editing so to me it’s not worth buying a subscription to. I honestly don’t really recommend this app unless you’re planning to buy the subscription. If you are they do have some cool features but if you’re not the only things you can do on here is put filters on your pics and smooth/conceal your skin. and like crop photos and mess around with photo exposure but you can already do that on your phone so yeah not rlly worth the storage space.
Hellachels - Revision: 40 dollar app robbery
Soooo I did what I said I’d do in my previous review. I just kept it since I have to have it for work & idk what the last update did but when you go to refine the size of something or completely fuzzes it out. You also messed with patching, say when needing to add a patch of hair somewhere else it is completely different from what it use to be it picks up the underneath of the part you are trying to cover and makes it look crazy. When patching it is also extremely frustrating to rotate an image or turn your selection because it changes the grain of the patch instead of what you are selecting. Again for your pompous 40 dollars your development delay is beyond lazy.
I canceled this app four days ago after I noticed you were going to charge me 40 dollars for your stupid app. Not ever in my life would I pay that for an APP- once a year or not! You auto default people to that and even when they cancel it so it doesn’t go through you STILL PROCESS IT. Your app doesn’t even let you selectively touch up like your free one. You’re basically a super expensive Pixlr. Reversing the charge.
||ryan|| - It could be so much better
Thanks for all the features included in your app. I believe the could be better for such a high subscription price. For that amount of money, the background removal tool needs some help. It never masks properly, and adding a “fix” feature to tools that don’t go a very good job is not the answer. The tool should work and that’s that. Y’all know that already though. A lot of the tools do a poor job at recognizing the parts of an image that is to be affected and automatically selected to do adjustments: The Eyes tool is not very good, it always selects the wrong part of the eyes, and we should be able to select the eye and modify it as we want. The Paint feature should have sizing options for the brush/eraser for fine details. The are other issues but I truly believe y’all are aware of these issues already. Hopefully they can be fixed in a future update. Despite the things that could be better, it is very fun to use and has so much potential.
Chelsey Annaliese-marieee - I watched this happen, so not saying you should do it...
So like many apps do, they have VIP membership subscriptions that enable you to unlock certain features. Well a friend of mine is a long time user of the app, but whenever she wanted to use a specific feature that could only be used in the VIP membership, she would just screenshot it. I’m not snitching on her or anything really, but I found this kinda funny. I guess there is a new update on that app that when someone tries to screenshot the photo edited with features without paying for the membership it now will say “It was worth a shot”—it was funny seeing her reaction! But what I thought was even funnier is that when that happened, it didn’t stop her for any longer than 3 seconds. All she had to do was screenrecord her screen for 5 seconds then once it was in her album, she screenshot it from the video & got her picture 😂😂
SO I say that all to say... you all miiiiight want to update your system a little bit to make more of a profit— I guess Gen Z is rather fast 😂🤷🏾♀️ Hope this helps!
Daysi03 - Yearly Subscription?
I have the basic Facetune but decided to also purchase this Facetune for the added features the original doesn’t have but I found myself going back to the original one because I found it easier to work with. So today I decided to go into this app and the first thing I see is where you’re asked to sign up to a subscription?!? Excuse me but why should pay for a subscription on an app I paid to use?!? Like another reviewer said and I agree.. I am not paying for another subscription to add yet another subscription and squeeze it into my budget, not fair!! For if you didn’t know not all the ppl using this app is an influencer who have enough money to throw away if they please. You made enhancements to the app well my opinion is this why not create a totally new app with all the added features and let it be well known that whoever installs will be charged and signing up to a yearly subscription.
FFzgFFYzzgGhZhx - All the good features you now have to pay for
I’ve been a long time user of this app like probably over three years and recently the tools i used the most and LOVED you now have to pay for. The reason why I had Facetune 2 instead of normal facetune is because I didn’t want to pay money for an editing app like this. Limiting the features unless you pay literally defeats the purpose of the whole “factune 2”cheaper app idea. if you’re willing to spend (wayyy too) money on an editing app like this, just get normal Factune. I’m deleting this app now because the only features it provides are features you can get on a million other apps. It’d be a different story if i didn’t have all the features before and had to pay for the good features from the start (i would have deleted the app right away if i had to pay for the good stuff anyway) but they were mostly free and then taken away which why I’m upset. It changed for no reason besides getting an extra buck. I’d like to hear a response for the purpose of having two apps that do the same thing for more money.
Kyla~Marie - facetune 1 is way better
I have had facetune ever since james Charles recommended it and i truly loved it. It was only like $5 and it came with everything i needed. Facetune 2 ruins it for me. You have to pay $6 a month or $70 for a one time payment! Now all of a sudden the original facetune isn't letting me update it because of changes that were made or something. I honestly wish facetune 2 was similar to the original facetune. Your not even getting that much out of facetune 2, there are several apps i can do the same thing for free. I would much rather have facetune 2 be like the original facetune, where you pay for the app and everything is included. For now i will be sticking to the original facetune. This one is super overpriced which in my opinion makes it worse. You guys should've have jumped into monthly and yearly payments and continued to have us pay for the app outright. It's going downhill :( . I was super happy at first seeing it was free and thinking i would only have to pay like $5 in the app but wow i was wrong.
Charlsjr - Features that were once free now need subscription
Updating an app only to make it more expensive is completely disappointing. The two most used features: Paint and Reshape were originally free with Facetune 2, which was what made the app so special, but now they require a subscription. This app was originally a really exciting idea that allowed for amazing features from Facetune to be accessed for free. It was very efficient and although not all the features were free, the ones that were still free offered amazing tools for photo editing. Recently, the app created an update that, although it released new features, changed the settings for some of the best and most used features on the app and they now require the VIP subscription. The Paint and Reshape tools being free are what made this app unique and better than other apps. This kind of action completely cheats the consumers of this app and ruins the once great reputation that Facetune 2 once had.
For the Facetune 2 developers: Please reconsider changing the Paint and Reshape features back and available for all users. Thank you.
OneWhisper44 - Bait and Switch...
They used to have free features, still do, BUT now a lot of what used to be FREE for the 2 years I’ve been using it, they changed to now have you buy their subscription or pay the outrageous one time price. It’s fine if you want to have paid features, but they shouldn’t change from being free to having to pay for them all of a sudden. It’s messed up. You use it for 2 years, get used to the things you like, learn how to use them, and then all of a sudden 2 years later you have to pay for what you used to get free. I understand having to pay for certain features, but if other features were free for so long, why now should I pay for them??? Honestly, at first I was like, well I’ll just pay. But then I looked at the prices. Subscription for this app is crazy...the one time fee is even more ridiculous. The features are no where near worth that. There’s apps that do what this does and more and do them better for that price. Unfortunately Facetune has gained such popularity they think it’s okay to do this. It’s not.
Hard Writer - So...
Overall, it's fine. There's nothing wrong with the effects if they're used correctly. My biggest problem comes from the subscription fees. I use mobile photoshop constantly with peoples faces and it feels almost insulting to see that the only things available for non-payers to use are the things that are already available in photoshop, while the only things that bring anything remotely new to the table requires paying for a fee that is either: completely insane for a mobile app or one that seems small, but when you eventually forget it exists it piles up and slowly drains your bank account. At least the first Facetune one was a one-and-done $3.99 deal.
I'll admit, some tools are very well done and are much easier to use for people with less experience in the whole "face editing field". But those things fall short when you realize you have to sell your soul for these minor conveniences. I'm willing to put in a little extra effort in order to get just as desirable results.
Haz the lion - Used to be one of my favorite apps
Before this new development, I would have given this app a 5 star rating. It was my favorite app to use to edit pictures of people. It was great and you could really develop a knack for it if you practiced as much as I did. But then today, I went on there to edit a picture and I noticed that two VERY basic editing tools are now payed function only. They had always been free to use and you could pay for other things like backdrop and glitter and auto-fixes. Facetune 2 took away reshaping AND paint. Paint is very useful for making things more colorful or even changing the color of things and color correcting things you are editing out,, as well as many other uses. These two functions were the main ones I used along with smoothing and now facetune has taken them away for a stupid fee. I would go to facetune 1, but even that requires a payment to use. I will not be using facetune anymore and I do not recommend other people do unless they want to pay for the most basic editing tools.
LuSully - Disappointing Update
This has been my go to phone editing app for years. I am a professional photographer so I use this for my personal photos in order to get some of the same effects as photoshop. I used the “background” function to often times replace people’s faces if they were blinking. I would take an almost identical photo but with their eyes open as the “background” and then erase everything else so just their face got replaced. It came in super handy. However, a few months ago I updated the app and that function completely changed and became utterly useless anytime I try to use it. I can’t “fix” or “erase” the areas I want to no matter how much I adjust it. This function was one the main reasons I pay for the app so unfortunately if it’s not fixed I’ll probably stop subscribing and have to find another app alternative for this function.
90Bats - Not worth the financial investment
I do like the app, especially for things like removing acne from an otherwise good picture… or people. However my skin has cleared and I’m in therapy to remove myself from people I don’t want in photos. The point is that I no longer need the app so I canceled my subscription and deleted the app a couple months ago. I thought my child had put it back on my phone when I saw the charge for $7.99 on my card.. but when I looked it appears that they’ve still been taking my money. I needed a little money for gas and the second I loaded my card, Facetune2 charged me $15 immediately. Again, I no longer use or subscribe to the app. Why are you charging me let alone taking double the monthly amount? I did try to dispute it so I guess we’ll see how that goes. Would I have recommended the app before this? 100% yes. Now? Probably not. Shady.
Misa Misaki - Way too pricy
I’m really disappointed that facetune decided to go with a subscription model. I probably wouldn’t even mind it too much if it wasn’t this expensive! I’m so tempted to buy this app but honestly every time I just have to remind myself it’s not worth it. At the price of $70 I might as well get photoshop on my computer. And what bothers me the most was that at one point the app was available for one time payment of $30 and when I checked back later they had bumped it up to $70 ?? I was so SHOOK that they bumped the price up so much and it discouraged me from buying this app. A subscription model for an app like this in my opinion isn’t worth it. And the only perk old face tune users get is a one month free trial! No discount on the full version, nothing. 🙏🏼 If only I still had the opportunity to purchase this app for $30 (NOT YEARLY) I’d gladly throw my money at facetune but I don’t and I’m not spending $70 so I guess :S I’ll just continue to be upset over it and hopefully some day another app that’s just as good will come out that’s reasonable priced.
Mimi090810 - Must have for any social media pics
I absolutely LOVE this app. And paying the $4.99 a month is so worth it for all the extras you get. I have an Instagram account that I use for makeup and I hope to be an influencer at some point. This app has helped take my photos to the next level. You don’t have to change your face and make yourself look like someone you’re not, I’m not into that at all. But you can cover a blemish, fix your liner if it’s gotten smudged or faded, fix the tones of the pic (I use this a lot cause my iPhone can tend to wash me out) add lighting to the exact areas you want it in, smooth out pores, sharpen details and textures, and so so so much more. I could not be happier with this app and will be using it on every pic I upload. Won’t be looking for a better app causethis one just does it all :)
Macuzer - One of my go to apps for retouching
This app is pretty amazing. It makes it incredibly easy to apply professional level effects to your photos. The most used for me are the "Relight" and "Eyes" tools. Unbelievable that such a powerful editing tool is in my pocket! I'm not a fan of SaaS, so I paid the one time price. Pretty expensive, but a bargain when compared to the cost of apps used by pros to accomplish these same types of effects. Just hoping it's continuously updated and I don't have to shell out again because Facetune 3 comes out.
Amazing app. Great features. Expensive. But still a bargain. Great job to everyone involved in creating this tool. You make me look like a rockstar when I take a picture, correct/enhance it in post and share it. My subjects are always amazed at how good their photo looks.
CynxRN - Used to be amazing ... not so much now
This has been my go to app for all my pics I need to edit quickly and simply. Up until recent... there is such a lag when I select any editing options. Especially if I’m just using the single tap to see and compare the original image to the one that I’m working on with. It used to toggle quickly between the two with just a tap which saved me a ton of time.
This lag time is when working on the pic.... you could actually count to 3 while waiting for the selection to make the change.
This app also won’t let you “patch” completely. It’s always transparent but I’m trying to get rid of an unwanted object in the photo, I literally can’t because you can still see the object through the transparent patched area.
Lastly and very importantly... please fix this thing that makes it so I can’t edit any the bottom portion of my photo .... because the edited tools are in the way... the tools can’t be moved or minimized so in order for me to edit my photo at the bottom I have to turn my photo upside down just to reach the bottom part.
Please fix these things! I used to LOVE this app but as of late I’ve been looking for another one that doesn’t have all these time consuming and frustrating issues.
I should also add that I’ve been a paid member for several years.
RenaeGreenman - Pricey but Worth It!
This app is by far the BEST photo editing app I have ever used. You can literally do ANYTHING to your selfies, to achieve whatever exact desired effect you wish. This app gets all the little nuances completely right! Even my less flattering selfies come out ravishing after I’ve used FaceTune for enhancements. It is so unbelievably versatile and the tools are comprehensive for whatever you might need. They really thought of everything! I wish this had existed years ago! I never post a selfie or portrait to social media without running it through FaceTune FIRST. It’s become a necessity on my iPhone and my go-to app for all things selfie related! The price is steep but worth it for what you get and how often you’ll find yourself using it. Five enthusiastic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Flrncsc - Ripoff!! They removed features I paid for!!
I subscribed to the original Facetune a while ago. It had everything I needed. I previewed the new Facetune 2 when it came out, but decided I was good with the one that I had already paid for. I guess I wasn’t alone because they started forcing advertisements for the new version in the original app. My paid version was supposed to be add free. Annoying, but whatever. I just found out with this last update, they removed features I have already paid for and use regularly. They are now asking me to sign up for a monthly plan to get it back. Huh?!? I PAID FOR THEM ALREADY! I will be deleting Facetune and refuse to upgrade. I know they are trying to force me to pay a monthly fee instead of the fixed cost. Even if I have to pay someone a monthly fee, I will gladly do it so as not to give Facetune my money. Do not get this app. It has decent features but they will most likely rip you off at some point. 🤬
Lilylove_213 - STOP Changing the features!!!
Changing the control I had with the position of my icons. Crying face. Now the app is glitchY.
I love this app and I use it daily. BUT lately you changed the Patch feature (HATe it now) before I had more control on the level of intensity I wanted. Now I don’t have that! Ok I’m learning to live with it. Still hate it. And now you’ve changed the EYE feature!!!! WHYYYYYY!!????? STOP it! Nothing wrong with the EYE feature before!!! It’s terrible and I have again LESS control of what I want. I can’t wipe out the excess lense. I wear costumes and sometimes changing the color of my eye is crucial. This new change totally is NOT working!! Completely disappointed. Can you please change it BACK!!??? Can’t do my work as well with these feature changes😞😞I may need to look for a different app to meet my needs. This one was top, then you change it and now it doesn’t feel as professional. Very disappointing.
Alorri17 - Why charge for features that were once free?
I’ve been using Facetune for a long time now. About 5 years now. I’ve seen it developed and I’ve been through the updates and so far it’s been going well. I’ve heard great reviews about the app from other people, from influencers, etc. and I think that it deserves its recognition. But I don’t think it’s fair especially with this recent update that now it’s charging us to use certain features that were once free. It was a very affordable app but now that’s it’s charging, I don’t see it’s use anymore. I don’t find it fair especially for someone who has had this app for a long time and still uses it until this day to now have features that require purchase for yearly, monthly, one time purchase. I’m really disappointed in this new update and I hope that I can go back to the way it was so that people who can actually afford it can keep the app. Please take this review into consideration. Thank you.
Jbarker977 - Unethical App Developers
I downloaded the original version of this app. I liked it - so, I purchased the app. No big deal. I was happy to give money for the great features.
Then, they come out with a new version of the app with new features. So, I downloaded it to try it out. Some new features but for what I liked, nothing had changed really. I didn’t feel that the new app was needed for what I wanted to do.
Instead of letting those who had bought the app continue to use it - they decided it would be a good idea to remove access to it in order to FORCE me to purchase the new app if I still wanted those features.
Did I purchase it? Yes. Was I happy about it? No. I feel it’s entirely unethical that they force you to upgrade something I purchased and was still working fine for my needs until they removed my access and forced my upgrade.
They did give a discount - but entirely removing my access in the first place was extremely frustrating and unethical and, drably, made me very very angry.
So, you decide if this app is for you. It works great for lots of things - but just know, they may try to get you to purchase it again if they want more money.
The moment I find an app as good or better, even if I have to buy it, I’ll be moving on. These people will not do this to me again.
Dittybirds - This is just sad.
All these face-editing apps ever do are depress people. They make people insecure, make them think they’re ugly without makeup or face edits, and just plain make people addicted. It makes people think lies, like they HAVE to look a certain way to look good or “perfect”, and it makes them think they NEED makeup to look better. It’s so unhealthy. These apps just straight-up depress people. I literally only downloaded this app to write this review!! 0 stars if possible. And the way you advertise? It’s disgusting. You say “remove blemishes”, causing people to believe that birthmarks or freckles are bad and make them look imperfect. I have nothing against the creators of this app, just the whole idea of the app itself, which tells you that it can make you look “perfect”—— but get over the fact that you’ll NEVER look perfect, no matter what some stupid app says. You were made to look how you were supposed to look, so just live with it!!!
Jesse lee16 - Amazed........but
This app is amazing and I can see what people would pay for (ok not really the 70$ for lifetime especially since the first one was only like 4$) but any way my only question is why are basic editing tools such as saturation, highlights, and shadow for vip only??? I mean literally every single editing app free and paid has these things. Even the editor in your photos. This doesn’t really make since to me and it is annoying going back and forth through other apps to have to use these tools. I understand you want to make money but tools like those should just be a given that they are free. One last thing. I wouldn’t say this is app is worth seventy dollars for life time or doing a continuous subscription. A One time purchase of like 7-10$ is probably more of the range this app is in. Great app but yeah.
Grettacia - Nice app! But has lots of bugs.
I use this app almost EVERYDAY, I find it essential to edit my professional photograph. Due to the fact that I use it so often I’ve noticed some bugs and defects, for example, when I want to crop a picture, after I do it, and want to use another feature, the app freezes for a moment, this is very annoying. Something similar happens when I want to use the darkroom feature.
Also, when I’m using the “paint” feature, the options for the colors are right side of the picture, so when I want to color the background, it becomes difficult.
Also, it crashes sometimes and I loose all my progress.
Overall, this app is great, it has so much potential, I definitely recommend it, but it would make me 100% if y’all were to fix these issues, Thank you so much.
WiselyChoco - This app is encouraging fake beauty and the Devs are selfish
This app is not good for kids, teens, adults, or anyone. It encourages people to hide their real beauty and mask it with lies. I only downloaded this app because I needed to write this review to warn any young people to not use this app as way to make you look pretty on pictures for your social medias. This app was created for people who aren’t confident in how they look, but they should be. ALSO this was created to make money off of people who cared enough to change how they actually look. Please do not waste money on this app because your giving the Devs what they want. *IMPORTANT INFO READ NOW* If you are still don’t believe me, you can scroll down to the information section of this app and click on “In-App Purchases” and you’ll be able to see all the in-app purchases inside the app, which should help you understand that this a horrible app created to grab your money to fake your appearance.
CHEEEECH - Facetune is amazing
The amount of control over individual facial features is amazing.
I give it 5 stars. It is a must for retouches. I was hesitant because of the price. I bit the bullet and bought the full app. I think it was during a sale. So glad I did. Hope they keep updating this app and don’t create a facetune 3 that I will have to pay for it again. Some features that I would like to see are: adjust hairline, add facial hair and hairstyles/colors, add teeth to a smile like “FaceApp”.
Add a background feature can definitely be improved. So could some of the eye color and eye reflection features.
Appreciate the new neon lightning feature. Please continue to make this app better. Would like to lower receding hairlines ASAP. Important for my retouching of older men. Thank you developers !
Shoeshoemama - Quite Disappointed
I purchased the subscription, because I liked the opportunity to edit some of my product photos, especially the backgrounds. But sadly the tools for adding/changing backgrounds do not work like the videos show. Supposedly you are supposed to be able to select a background and just paint it on the areas to change it and it would bump up sharply (as in crisp edges) against the objects in the foreground. It did not work for me that way. And I thought maybe it was because of the photo, so I tried it with a different photo to even worse problems. When I selected a background, it covered the entire picture and you can remove it from the center picture, but not crisply and is counter intuitive to the video instructions. It doesn’t work exactly as portrayed. I’m very disappointed and have cancelled y subscription because of it.
Yesii87 - Very Disappointed
I have never ever written a review about any app before. But I will now in case any of you are looking to download this one. I DO NOT recommend this app anymore. This used to be my favorite app to edit photos because the free tools that they offered were amazing!!! Like the paint & reshaping option which were the ones I used the most. But all of a sudden they decide to update it and now start charging a ridiculous amount in order to use these tools that were once (for a very long time) FREE! And they also put a block on the app where you can’t screenshot the photo you have just edited.
Honestly, it is not worth the money or the download just for those 2 tools that I really loved. I will be looking for other apps to use and will be deleting this one, I will not download it ever unless they offer those tools again and don’t charge a ridiculous amount. For that reason I give this rating ZERO STARS.
Facebook Fan2 - Afraid to do Free Trial Due to Poor Reviews
After reading all these horror reviews of people actually being charged even after they cancel the free subscription within the appropriate time, I’m a so hesitant to even try it. I read the reviews from the Most Recent not the Most Helpful. The reviews are horrible. Most not about the app itself but when it comes to being charged. If you don’t make it easy to cancel and if people are being billed when they’re not suppose to be and they are letting you know here but all you can give is a generic what seems automated response, then I would beware. Too many people are complaining about the same or similar things.
You lost me before me even giving it a try. And I wanted to try. Trust me. But I don’t want to try at the expense of you tampering with my dollars and charging me. Then I have to deal with the frustration of “trying” to get my monies refunded? Maybe when I see better reviews, I’ll reconsider. Until then, I will pass.
Walkerrph - BEWARE!! -1 start
Tried the free trial & realized with my arthritis It was not a good choice for me. I thought I had unsubscribed & had deleted the app but then a charge showed up on my credit card. Okay. If I was remiss there were 2 choices for 1 mo or 1 year...I had not chose either and get billed for $38+ rather than a $5.95 mo? I have tried to work with Apple who advised me to contact the company which has no contact info. NO WAY would I recommend a company that appears to operate in such a nefarious way.
**** I love companies who support their product..this may have been my issue but as mentioned above my hand immobility made it problematic to use..hence I stopped the trial after 2 days but was charged for a year. I was refunded my charge and thank you! Great job!!
MisaMisaMay - Better off getting the old version
Some of the basic things you use it the most for (smoother, sharpen, structure, reshape, patch, paint/tones) are no longer free. You already pay just to download the app....it was definitely a slap in the face to make the most common tools a VIP thing you gotta subscribe and pay for monthly. They’re all free in the original Facetune, just most of the tools in the original aren’t as advanced/upgraded and you gotta take your time to not mess up or make it look super fake. FaceTune2 tools just had some slight improvement so the tools are easier to use with more natural finish but taking your time you can still achieve the same things with the original.
I would of rather they added new and unique features that were premium rather than taking core tools and making them premium. I would of rather they placed ads (but nothing too crazy) for revenue than charging for basic tools.
Salspice - BRING BACK VIGNETTE
i have paid for the monthly subscription for this app for about a year and i am HAPPY to do so as it is my go to for editing. As a content creator, it is frustrating to have to use several apps to get the end result you desire. However, with this recent update to add sparkle, hair colors, and clothes, some of the old tried & true features have changed.
I use the vignette option probably half the time i make edits... it has now moved to the “edit” tab and it is simply not the same. it is far less customizable & basically not useable for me anymore. I need this feature back to the way it was, PLEASE.
also, rather than introducing childish edits like hair color & clothes, please consider adding the capability to watermark photos within this app. it would be life changing to have this feature.
__SarahM - locking and unlocking features is SUPER ANNOYING
i swear facetune just cannot choose whether they wanna give us certain things for free or not. one minute the reshape tool and paint tool is free to use, next minute it’s locked and you gotta pay for it, next minute it unlocked again, then locked back again. it’s very ANNOYING. just make up your mind, it’s either you give it to us for free or not. at this point i will delete the app for good. y’all can’t be so selfish. you can barely do anything good for free already, they’re literally taking everything good away from the app unless you pay for it. it’s an actual shame, unless facetune unlocks the features again, i will soon be deleting. if you’re looking for an alternative, picsart has in app features, but their reshape tool as well as paint tool is free! and there isn’t any back and forth locking and unlocking. i don't recommend this app unless you have loads of money to waste!
BiBiqueen👑 - Good
I've been using this app for a while now and I was happy with all the features I could use for free but every now and then when the app updates, it takes away all the good free features I was mainly using to edit. The reshape, paint were things I used a lot that was free and now apparently I have to pay for them which is disappointing. On the face edit when it updated, new features like editing the size of the face, lips, nose, eyes or eyebrows were added to use for free and now it's not. The paid features that were before free make me use it less as it was the main thing I was using it for. I would still give it 3 stars for the work it gave before the update and for the couple of things that I still slightly use that are free. It is a good app just disappointed with the updates.
Bmal4 - Longtime User but this is App Extortion!
I have been using Facetune for YEARS, and a while back paid for a full feature upgrade for a reasonable sum (it was ages ago so I’m thinking between $15-30?) This was more than I’d paid for any other app, but felt it was worth it as it really did elevate photos from my iPhone 6. I didn’t need the app as much when I upgraded to an iPhoneX with a better camera, but Facetune was still my go-to app for specialized editing. I’ve had to “restore purchases” more than once because the app ‘forgets’ I’ve paid for the upgrade. Today I went in and even after restoring purchases, I can’t access features that I’ve had for YEARS without paying monthly fees. Auto-retouching and healing are GONE and I’m being forced to pay for them monthly. That is like app extortion, ridiculous!! I’m done here. Will just use photoshop from now on. Bummer Facetune, I really enjoyed your app.

A turtle who loves this app - Great app but now most features cost money :(
Have had this app for literally years and loved all the features that you were able to access even without a subscription!! It allowed you to do some much more with your photos than a lot of other free apps.
Unfortunately, now there are only the most basic features still available without a very costly monthly or yearly subscription. The reasons I once loved this app and used this app heaps are now mostly gone :(( I’m hoping in the future they can restore the app to offer the same range of features for free, allow you to pay just for full use of a certain feature of your preference, or make the subscriptions/whole package more affordable.
If you’ve got the money for it, this app still has great features! Personally I’ll be trying to find an app that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg just for some simple editing.
Bleeeeeeeeeh☀️🌵 - why???
I’ve used this app for so many years and it was amazing because of all the free features. Why is it that there are so many tools that were free before but now need to be upgraded to VIP to use? How is that fair to consumers? If one day every tool we used to always use has to be paid for, then everyone who downloads this app hoping to use tools to enhance their photos, will delete it right after seeing that it needs to be paid for. This was honestly such a good app before it decided to change, although there are available packages, it’s really not worth it just to enhance photos unless you’re an influencer and even then, they’re most likely to use photoshop on the computer rather than the app. This update is understandable because of a company’s need to earn money but is horrible for consumers because it is severely overpriced, I don’t even take enough photos to edit, let alone pay $5 per month just to edit 1 photo. Like i said, this was a super good app but I think it’s time to change to another.
Krestyan7H - Can you please put everything for free
Please put everything for free this is very in useful you have to spend your money on this just to make your photos better?!? Why are all apps like this the ads look more better but only there to bring us in when we download it turns out the stuff we wanted to try on couldn’t use because you know why it’s VIP you have to buy vip for everything , every single app if this keeps on going no one is gonna want the app so we really need to change this app , in thought apps were there to make people happy calling and entertainment but this is just no , Im not the one who is just begging for everything to be free everybody is it’s better then spending money to make photos to look so cool this app is good and everything but people can get upset , and snoozed because everything just has to be ‘not’ free some stuff are free but not good enough only using for tiny parts, it’s like treating everybody different because if money I’d be very happy and everybody else to if you change it, if your reading this thanks. For reading the whole entire thing -_-
Anagnorisis1234 - photo loading error
I've been using this app for years since the first facetune app and I love it, but I have an issue so pleade read this! I use the annual vip membership for facetune and facetune video and the app suddenly stopped working and the pictures will just simply not load..I see the loading icon loading forever and ever, tried restarting the phone, updated the app as well and still the same. Please help me fix this issue..I am not using this app for free so it would be quite unfortunate if I can't use the app anymore because it really is my favorite photo app!
Nick_Jones85 - Greedy Developers Have Ruined App
The original Facetune app was amazing, and still is. I use it quite often to remove marks on images, enhance photos, and attempt to hide every pore I was unfortunately born with. However, Facetune 2 is just a money hungry power grab, with the Developers hoping that people will be stupid enough to pay for each month, hiding almost all of the good tools behind a paywall.
Your comments on reviews keep stating that Facetune 2 is free, and whilst it’s true to download the app, the caveat is that you can’t use most things without paying for it. Plus, you don’t even allow a lifetime, once off payment amount, and instead want people to rent the app off you instead. This is shady, greedy, and spits in the face of those who supported the original Facetune.
Now you flood the original Facetune app with ads for Facetune 2, trying to force users to download and start renting your cash grab from you. Shame on you.
Mlópez - Amazing until they trick you
Got the first version of the app, fell in love with it so downloaded the number 2 and payed for it. I won’t lie, it was amazing until I wasn’t able to use all the features I paid for. Now you have to pay an incredible amount of money yearly or each feature has a price. If I was one of the first people to buy a package when the app came out, I should be allowed to keep it as that’s what I payed for and you gladly took my money. Now that these guys became popular, they just forgot their first customers and cut the access to the features to make us pay more. I am very upset. Good thing is, there are LOADS of new apps every day and one can always find a decent, fair app that provides the same!
Alexia Smasher - Will not work at all
I have been using Facetune 2 for a few years and I have been a full member subscriber so I could access all features. But when I went to click onto the App today it keeps switching off within a second. I have tried removing the Apo from my iPhone and then downloading it again to refresh but still it’s not working. It seems like there’s a glitche and it will not load or open.
My yearly subscription just ran out on May 23rd this year and I want to renew my subscription but I cannot without being able to open the App.
Can you please advise if there is a system glitche with using Facetune 2 on iPhones.
Ally grace midgley - Sooo Disappointed 😔
I’ve had this app for a few years, and I’m not gonna lie it was great! That was until vip came and I was so upset! You can barley do anything without “vip” coming up. And I’m also shocked that filters come with vip. I can easily go to photos and do my filter there. Also, I was going to get vip and get the “one time purchase” until I saw it was $109. That’s crazy! And a waste of money. There are many other photo apps better than this! Also, I’ve heard that you can’t keep your money and can’t use any features when you buy! You take peoples money which is unfair and greedy. I also see you have other games, which cost money again. Do you only care about money? I know you must’ve worked hard on this but I expected more. This is my opinion about the game, but I so disappointed (; Kind regards, Ally
Abi3194 - The free features just changed?
Thought I was going crazy. I love this app and thought it had a really reasonable selection of free tools to use if you can’t justify the subscription. But all of a sudden the resize and paint tools have turned into VIP features?! Super annoying because I want those ones back since I’m used to using them but not all the other VIP ones.
I get the point of in app purchases but it’s cheeky to get us used to using them for a few years then pull them off literally within the last few hours.
Maybe offer a second tier ‘economy plus’ type of subscription to access those ones again. I’d be okay/able to justify paying $2-4 a month for renewed access to those.
Kindofnotsure57 - No.
It’s unfair how you have to pay for it because I thought this app was actually good until I saw the VIP thing. It’s useless, because you need a lot more tools to actually make a photo look ‘good’ .There is no point in getting this app when you have to pay for it and waste your money and time. DON’T waste your money by getting this app because not everyone is a professional at photoshop and don’t waste your time by getting it and realising oh, it’s expensive to get the good features and then delete it. Not everyone knows how to use this app ‘properly’. Others may think differently about this but it’s most likely because they are rich. Facetune 2 has to realise not everyone has the money for buying these tools. I’m not saying this app is bad, I’m saying it’s not worth it. I wish I could give 0 stars
Sophia rose le - Still thinking...
Hmmm... I would only give five stars if... just... this is really frustrating just HOW DO YOU DO THE NEXT THING like I mean when you finish putting the paint on or something then I pressed the tick it just said $$$$$ VIP only like what on earth does that mean WHAT ON EARTH DOES IT MEAN but don’t get worried whoever made this game cause I just started ok hahahah um.. but I would like to know what do you press if you want to move on. If I found out the next review that is by Fifi is me. Thanks for reading.
Naez11 - Free trial is deceiving
I signed up for the 7 day free trial for this app because I have the original Facetune and use it often.
I didn’t find I used this during the free trial and went to delete prior to the end of the trial, on the last day in fact. However I found I had been charge the annual fee prior to my free trial ending. It was charged the morning on the 7th day and I went to delete the app only an hour later. That 1 hour cost me a lot of money and I now have an app that I will not use for a whole 12 months.
I tried to contact the app provider, however I have not had a response. Disappointing.
If you do sign up for the free trial it’s actually a 6 day trial FYI!
When it tells you the date the trial ends, that is the morning you will be charged, you don’t have the whole day.
Northwards - Completely useless now. This is bait.
This app was great. I get that the developers wanted to make something out of developing an app that fixes imperfections and gives people their dream body or face. But it got to a point where you can’t even use the most basic features anymore. What’s the point if it’s advertised as free on the App Store but when you access it, you have to pay an unreasonable amount of money? I’d rather watch ads to access features than having to pay for an app. The whole appeal of this app was because you got to make modifications without having to access photoshop, but now it’s just not worth it. Good job lightricks. You’re going to lose customers if you keep this up.
Woompas - Update is horrible
Why would you have an app and have features available for years then all of a sudden change the features to “VIP” and charge heaps? I understand you need to make money but for those who have been using this app for years i feel like this app just offers the basics like every other app to be honest.
Would of been better if those who had already had the app prior to changes could have everything stay the same vs new people who downloaded it would have to pay for those features.
Trev555000 - Powerful and easy to use!
Love love love Facetune! It’s so easy to use with lots of editing options. It may not be the most feature rich app, but it makes up for that by being so easy and reliable to use.
One feature that would make the app even better would be an AI-based object remover. Currently there is only an eraser and patch option, but introduced some AI to improve the quality would be a welcome introduction.
Madelena12 - Only good features = $$$$$
Have been using this app for years. A while ago they took away the extra smoothing feature from the list of free applications. Was really quite annoying but continued to use for the other good features. Now reshape and paint tool are no longer free meaning the only feature most people will use with the free app is just basic smoothing? And who wants a whole app just for that? Would not mind paying for the extra features if they were not RIDICULOUSLY over priced. $55 a year?!!! Such a rort and such an insensitive time to make this update during COVID 19. So disappointing after using for years, have lost a long time user.
😶😕😬😜😝😘😚😱😠😫😶😶😶😐😯 - So effective
Amaze your friends with your newly found talented camera skills that this app allows you to gain, using the effective editing tools you can change the look of your skin, apply makeup, change face shape and edit background.

**fizzstar** - DO NOT DOWNLOAD
If I could give minus 5 stars I would.
This app may offer a free trial period but it’s a trap!
I found out the hard way the trial period is a trick to get you to download the app, then they automatically charge you! Its not a subscription so you can’t cancel it, it automatically deducts your money! $110 for a trial period and app that I have no interest in.
BTW Apple reject your request for a refund because it’s a one off payment and not a subscription so they ASSUME you were aware of the purchase, although you’re NOT because the app download process blatantly lied about a free trial period before purchase with no way of cancelling it!
Coolestgirlmeabhb❤️ - 3 and a half
It’s a really fun app to edit ur photos or make them look funny!
Although a big downside is that almost EVERYTHING is premium. I get that obviously the app has some premium things to make extra money as most apps do but why is almost every feature premium???!!!
Wamusuck - Scammers
Do NOT be fooled by the free trial period. They lull you into a false sense of confidence literally stating they will remind you when the trial is about to end so you can cancel it before you get charged. They do not remind you. I did not receive a single notification or email or any sort of correspondence and i forgot to cancel it. They charge you for the subscription the same day the free trial ends, and whats more they don’t even sign you up for the monthly subscription, they charge you for a whole year in one lump sum to gauge you of as much money as possible.
Scammy company. Peeved off
Heidbdick - Hard to cancel a membership or trial, be careful
I never use the app but one day I found a purpose for it so I signed up for the free trial because you can’t do anything in the app without it. I then tried to find out how to cancel. Twas impossible without writing them an email, and the link they sent me said no membership was found under my email…. I foolishly thought my email would then be enough and now I’m stuck with a $72 bill for something I don’t use 😤
Soaringjones - Where’d all the features go?
I got hooked on this app back in 2018. Fantastic features on the free version and they were worth (imo) the ads that would appear. I mean, let’s be realistic an app can’t survive on being free. But now most of the features I used constantly have switched to the paid part of the app, and they weren’t even especially wonderful or outstanding compared to the paid features. Now it’s less features and more ads
TerriStone - One time $109 payment .. what is it??? ..
I can’t find anywhere to clarify what 1 time
Payment means or the terms .
Is it for a lifetime?
Does it include all upgrades, even if it gets renamed because of a major release ie FaceTime 3?
Can someone direct me to where the T&c’s are because I have searched everwhere for the “fine print”
If it includes what I mentioned above, why wouldn’t I do that??? Anyone else paid for this 1 time payment option?
Or is it just 1 year but not auto renewed!!! That’s a sneaky trick and why I can’t find t&c’s if that is the case.. would be very misleading
I hope to get a response as I love Facetune 2
Sexsyniknowit - Overpriced garbage
Original Facetune was something like one off fee of $5 to use forever, tries to charge $109 one off fee for their second app you are literally hilarious to think you can rip off people like that!!! The fee for once month is still even more expensive than original app one off fee 🤣🤣 don’t care if you’ve upgraded the app and added a couple extra features I’m pretty sure you can actually go and buy a REAL photoshop tool for a cheaper price! Best to just use the original facetune app and pay for the one off fee if it is still cheap!!
Iwillforeverjudgeyou - The last app standing
This morning I downloaded 4 photo editing apps. Out of all of them, this was the only one which improved the picture instead of changing it to where it didn't look like me anymore. I am very impressed and even considering going up to the VIP version (I never usually do this with apps).
SammiD66 - new update isn’t great
The new update has taken away the ability to change your mood/facial expressions which was really handy? Not sure why they’d take away such a good feature from their customers who are paying monthly?
_.__..__.._. - Horrible update $$
The paint and reshape features should not be part of the vip subscription now. I refuse to pay an expensive amount for the same features we’ve been able to use for years. It’s wrong and unfair. Please remove this in your next update. I’m better off using any of the other hundreds of apps that offer the same basic features that are free. This app used to stand out with these great extra free editing features but now it’s the same bland app as the rest.
A.trueblueaussie - I can make my old friends photos beautiful.
However as I was given the option
I wont be upgrading. I wont even contemplate involving my self with the people whom gave me an ultimatum Twelve months two months or nothing bar a frozen screen till I chose .
BAD customer relations. Plenty of Apps can achieve, my aims . This IS good though😞.
Dykatron - Wouldn’t Want To Catfish Any Other Way!
I’ve used so many editing app to remove my insecurities and nothing does it as cleanly and easily as FaceTune. It is a lil bit of money but change your subscription to once a year and it’s not even a worry! FaceTune makes my life better.
160801 - Money suckers!
I have been using this app for well over 2 years and it’s been the best editing app for my photos up until they decided to make u pay for the reshape and colour tool! Luckily enough I found a way to un-update the app and I’m back to the older and better version. So if I’m being honest I’ll give the app a 5 start review before that dumb update but after their new update it’ll be a solid 1 star because the app is useless without the reshape and colour tool.
Fitri K - After update the apps somehow i cant used the vip access
I have purchased for one year full of vip access on march 2018, but today after i updated the apps somehow i can not use the full access anymore, what the hell happen guys?? Could you please help me to fix the issues? Thanks
Rubberears01 - Deceptive Subscription Options
While I very much enjoyed this app and was willing to pay a subscription the actual app has now multiple times used deceptive tactics where they change my subscription to a higher cost.
I was happy to pay monthly but twice now I have been bumped up to a yearly subscription which does not suit my lifestyle.
This destroys consumer confidence in a brand and I have made a formal complaint to Apple directly about this developer as well.
Emmmaaaaahhh - Disappointed with the new feature
$12 a month when you want to slightly touch up a photo is a joke, I understand if you drastically change your photo but the fact you can’t even screenshot anymore for a lower quality pic is even more annoying. Would happily purchase the app if it was a one off fee but not worth the ongoing cost. There are so many other free apps out there better than this one. Will be deleting
Nikki120973 - Suddenly can’t use any features
I used to love this app and thought the free to paid features ratio was very reasonable. But now my most used feature (paint) is suddenly paid as well as the reshape feature. honestly what is even the point of saying the app is free. to use smooth? any app will do that. so so useless and disappointing. and for $50/year... bit steep.. disappointing to say the least
HoneyCholava - Buy it it’s worth it
Once u actually paid for the app every door opened, it wasn’t a half pay the pay more to get this, it was just one payment then the whole resources of the app were at your fingertips! Seriously the best photo editing tool ever!
Xkfi92849 - Suddenly changed some free tools to “VIP purchase”?!!
I’ve just noticed that some of the editing tools that came with the app - for example the Resize/reshape tool - has now been made unavailable unless you upgrade again and purchase it. This hardly seems fair!! By all means add on different tools but you shouldn’t take a tool that cake with the app and then try and charge for it. That’s just plain money gouging. Resize has been free for ages, why is it not anymore???
Eliftanrikulu - Don’t do that
I downloaded the app and signed up for a 3-day trial period. After using it for the first few hours, I found it complicated to use and deleted the application from my phone. I have now seen an annual fee from my account. I do not want to use the application and I left the application on the first day of my trial period. I did not understand why they were charged. When I want to mail, the application gives an error. what kind of vip service is this? Nobody download it, please.
Shiraz1755 - Awesome....
It’s one of the best app for editing.
I’ve been using this for a long time
Only issue recently is that it crashes the minute you try to edit any picture.
Hope this will be fixed by the developer.
Maddygrubb - Charged me money
Horrible service, I have looked and Facetune has charged me for a $60 subscription which I never knew I actually got. I have not signed anything nor have I agreed to anything saying I would like to purchase anything. Further reading the app policy it states to email them at a certain email address which I have done twice not getting any emails back after 2 days. I would like my money back please
Natalieehosking - Good app however ..
I subscribed to the monthly subscription on the app but cancelled it after a while, now they keep spamming my Apple email and there’s no way to unsubscribe or block them. I didn’t subscribe then unsubscribe just so I could get spammed everyday. It’s annoying because my Apple email is private. I don’t use it for anything else except private emails so that it wouldn’t get spam mail. Hence the one star rating, YALL doing too much !
Heartbucks - realistically not using anymore
To be honest this used to be my favourite edit app but now almost all of the features are paid to use. Realistically i have no use for it anymore and paying monthly is not a realistic option for me so i will be on the lookout for other editing apps that are free or cheaper.
Evetuza - Deceiving
I have the original Facetune and is generally fine, I saw thelittle video of all the new and amazing features on facetune2 just to fall in the trap! they make you believe that with the facetune 2 you can do amazing things likel changing backdrops, lighting etc, but they don’t tell you that you need to pay extra for the “vip” settings each month (in facetune you have smooth and smoother for free while they have all this things on vip! Just ridiculous! Don’t spend your money on this app
XyzElephant - Good for basic editing
I have had the app for years and loved all of the extra features available. Now you can’t do most of these things without paying a very costly subscription fee and I since deleted the app which is disappointing. Hopefully one day they can restore the app back to its original ways to allow access to all of these features for free again.
Miko112299 - Disappointed and annoyed
I don’t understand why you have made a previous feature upgrades to VIP now. I have been using this app’s features for a long time and it has been great, super useful then all of a sudden I can’t even use a feature anymore. It was one of the very few free features that made the app good, now you have to pay for that feature which is just shocking.
J.asharris - update?!
I have used faced tune so frequently and loved being able to have access to free things such as reshape and paint but with the new update you now have to pay for VIP to use these things and I am honestly heartbroken and so disappointed I don’t understand why the developers would do this?!
Annoyed_chick - Would be amazing if...
I absolutely love Facetune, but it would be absolutely amazing if you could darken/enhance/lengthen/etc eyelashes..
So many times I’ve wished it could make my eyes ‘pop’ a little further with some thicker or longer looking lashes :-)
Livkite - Since when did you charge features that used to be free?
Since when did we have to pay for more features? I would use the reshape feature, but now i have to pay for it?? Why?? Since when did this app get more greedy? Theres already more than half of the features on this app that needs to be paid and now youre charging some of the features that used to be free?? Why not just add more premium features?!
Angelica nicole 678 - Got rid of the PAINT OPTION!!!!
a few days i was using my favourite option on the app which is the paint option, which allows you to paint makeup on, tan, tone was amazing!!! and today i went on to edit and now the paint option is not free anymore!!!! SO SAD please bring that option back as well as the reshape option both of these i have used since last year & from today they are paid for 😭
Mezurashii - Great app until the features were secretly made paid-only
As per this review subject, this app had made its arguably most used free feature - the reshaping - paid-only WITHOUT users being notified, even in the app update notes, very recently.
Not willing to pay a one-off 109 AUD fee for any app, let alone this one, nor the ridiculously expensive monthly instalments.
This app was a pleasure to use up until this change. You've just lost a user.
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Concerned among us player - Pretty nice...
Surprisingly, I can easily work with this app!
It is good, for one thing. However, we can not even save our own pictures? That is ridiculous! But, on the bright side, here’s a quick tip:
Because you are unable to screenshot your photos, press your home button twice so your photoshopped image with be visible. You are now able to take a picture without any money spent.
Bwjrmntbsjoflnwbsigoebs - Every good feature is in the paid version only
Hate the fact reshape tool is now VIP. There’s no point of owning this app there’s not a single feature in the free version worth it.
User28374 - Great app.
I love everything about this app, it works. (I’m a pro user) it’s not expensive at all. Plus the features are exclusive. In love
Urbanbelle - PEOPLE: stop blaming the developer for being charged!!!
Seriously, if you don’t know how to turn off a subscription through Apple IOS yet DO NOT get the app. EDUCATE yourself first! You have a freaking apple device. LEARN how to use it! It is SO easy to turn off a subscription. I’ve done it MANY times and have never been charged! It is your own fault if you get charged. READ before you download anything! Ok, Rant done :-)
Breakdown: Settings —> iTunes & App Store —> Apple ID —> View Apple ID (might have to sign-in) —> Scroll down to “Subscriptions” —> Select Facetune2 —> Cancel Subscription.
That’s it! You’re done! If you cannot follow these simple steps DO NOT download the app!
Heebster_123456 - Used to be good until everything costs money
I liked the “paint” functions in the app but now they decided to make it cost money to use which is ridiculous....Im really disappointed and I will be deleting the app because of it.
Will0w15 - They’re now charging for tools that used to be free to use.
Incredibly disappointed, I used to love using this app to edit my photos and do all my touch ups because this app has the best “paint” option, especially the “tone” tool. Never had trouble with the app before until I go to use the paint tools today and now they’re VIP only? They never used to be. Now I’d have to pay $99 just to occasionally touch up a photo on my own time/have access when I want it? Not impressed & hope they change that & the retouch feature, back to free.
Osl_pooches - Bad bad bad
I’m sorry to tell u that ur waisting ur time on this app it makes u pay soo much money and I think most of the five star reviews r fake not hatin just statin
ChyLLde - Worth it
If you know how to use this app for what it does and beyond you’ll quickly realize that paying for it is worth it. This whole app does more if you use your imagination. It’s definitely the best app for major edits. I use Snapseed and Facetune for everything and I love it. They keep getting better and better. Sometime I can’t believe how some photos turn out just with a few touch ups. Love it and I can’t wait to see what else they do.
Sj12345678) - Suggestion
After the 3 day trial just have a pop up screen asking the user if they want to opt into a subscription and have a big button that says free use only option. Though practical for customers, I know this not profit friendly for business. Nevertheless if the product is worth it those that want to pay will pay. This has been suggested before I’m sure. I look forward to the developers response but I doubt it will come.
Lovleyunicorn🦄 - 🙄
Such a money grab what a stupid app 🙄🙄🙄🙄
Tiffsclosetsale - They now charge u for paint and reshape!!
So they updated the app to edit ur hair and clothing but removed the free feature of the reshaping and painting?! Those two are the only ones I use. Its ridiculous how they're trying to make money off of those features now. Its time to delete this app, useless
Ray171702001 - are u kidding me
after years of this being my favourite app i am now expected to pay for the reshape and paint features?!?!?!? no way. bye.
Omk121244 - No reshape free
Reshape was free before not now ... worst
:') vurzia - trash after the update.
I’ve used this app for a couple months, never had any issues. but after the recent update, you have to PAY for retouch. which you never had to before. retouch was all i ever used the app for, so it’s useless to me now.
Kidravhl - Waste of time
The app is now no different from your phone’s built-in editing tools. After the update, the reshape tool and paint are only for VIP. Very disappointed.
Cupcakkeislife - Bring back paint for free
The paint feature was free and now you have to pay for it.
Jacob5153 - Ridiculous
Got a free trial to try the app out then woke up today with a bill from the app for 54 dollars !!!!!? Ridiculous just a money grab
RockyRoadsToo - Nothing free
Can't use any part of the app for free. All features require payment.
!27282@3@2 - 😾
i used to use this app all the time, mainly for the reshape tool, but now i have to pay for it??? like all these years it was free why do i need to pay now? i’m so mad like bruh let me live!! now i have to find a new app :( and i really liked this app before
555789281873 - Amazing
I'm in love with this app!!! All the new features are awesome! Bless the creators 🙏🏻🙌🏻
LucasAlphonse - Lovely
Great app. Easy to use
Omg.ariana - we brokeup.
for years i used to count on this app to edit my pics. now everything is vip?? after all i’ve done? all my loyalty? im done with u facetune😪
Thedisgracie - picsart does the same things for ✨free✨
lol it’s been nice but i’m gonna go download picsart now❤️
Vanessa9980 - Bye bye Facetune
This money hungry app made free features now premium. Deleting the app now 🤗 on to the next.
EggHeadMcScootScoot - Prepare for a harsh decrease in users lol
Loved the free version of this app, used it literally all the time for all my pictures, but they’ve made the option to reshape or resize parts of your pic a pro only thing since they’ve updated. I’m broke bro so thanks I won’t be using this app anymore. 🤷🏽♀️
Very angry user 12345 - They took away some very useful free features. Don’t update!
They took away some very useful free features (e.g. shaping). Don’t update!
Bob 162930271418"383661 - Don’t get it
The recent update made it so that you have to pay for all the features that’s you’d actually want to use. All the free ones you could use on Photoshop app for free and it would do a better job
DLOBBS - Removed the one feature I used
I bought premium JUST to use “relight” and your latest update took it away? WHY????
Loopyweirdo - Are you serious?
I’ve been using this app for years and now suddenly I have to pay for most things that used to be free. The paint tools and liquify tool are no longer free, so what’s the point in even having this app anymore? So I can do things that my iPhone photo settings can do? Ridiculous
Gsysjdb - scam
you have anything to work with you have to pay for everything you can’t raven save it also glitches and will not get of if your i phone
Parrotscience - Really?
I like how when people complain about the hidden cost the developers reply is “it’s free to download.”
Boopalo - Basically $100 app
Why is being able to use the full app forever $100..? Y’all remember when all apps were $0.99? Uninstalled immediately
Britt772626 - .......
I accidentally accepted the 3 days free and $50 monthly after... I don’t want this app nor to use it. How do I make sure this app doesn’t charge me? I’ve already deleted it from my storage.
Jala. - Cost money
This app cost money. Lost of money.
Natchris1989 - Absolute scam
DON’T ACCEPT THE THREE DAY TRIAL OPTION AS IT WILL END UP CHARGING YOU FOR THE YEAR ($46). It’s an absolute scam. Avoid.
Mcdonaldsemployie - Nope
Don’t feel like getting ripped off by an app meant for thots. All I want to do is make my face altered in stupid ways why does it cost so much?
Peachy112233 - Money grab
Money grab I don’t know why people rate it so high. It sucks comparing with Facetune 1.
NikkiJennifer - They charge u every month🤦🏾♀️
i honestly didn’t know i had to pay per month to use this app, which seems very inefficient compared to other apps.
Goldspeck - DO NOT DOWNLOAD unless prepared to pay
PLEASE be careful and read other reviews before you download this app. The app stated 3day free trial BUT when you attempt to download it, there is a prompt for subscription selection. IF YOU CHOOSE WRONG OPTION YOU WILL GET CHARGED IMMEDIATELY!
This is a DIRTY TRICK to get clueless people to ok the charge.
Rick90s - Never download - it is a trap
Once downloaded you are bound to subscribe... asking for a refund. I was auto subscribed for a 46 $ per year... sorry but i think that is wrong.
Please help me get my money back!
Behindherlens - In app camera is gone
What happened to the in-app camera? I paid for these yearly subscription.
Good thing my renewal date is coming up. Subscription cancelled until in-app camera feature comes back
Do I need a nickname... - confused
where did the camera feature go
Ctctftftftc - No camera after update!!
Installed update 2 days ago and no camera available?!
Only app I had for photos and videos.
I only ever highly recommended this app and installed 2+ years ago after reading rave reviews. I pay for a yearly subscription and am now disappointed to read that the developer is aware and others have reported the issue as well as myself reporting x2 with no reply.
Fix it!!!! Add an update of the previous version that worked, happy customers isn’t that what your looking for
Kmdougherty - Bad update
Latest update is weird! Where did the camera go??!
Cat7tes26 - Appareil photo
Pourquoi je n’ai plus l’icône pour prendre tout simplement une photo!!!???
Erton - Purchased but can’t use. 💸
I bought this app outright years ago and haven’t used it for a long time. I just realized that they changed to a subscription so I’d have to pay much more?
You would think when you purchase an app that it’s yours…forever. That is, until the company gets too popular and they change their business model. 😡
What a waste of money. 💸
23458685827n728 - This app sucks
This app sucks every function you have to pay for and who is really gonna spend 3 dollars or more a month for an app you will probably use 2 times a year
Tash2937 - Very disappointing
Now we have to pay for reshape. Nope *app deleted”
Wap (world animal protection) - they make u pay for reshaping
my tittle says it all the app is useless unless ur paying for it
before the last update is was oKaY cause they did remove a lot of free features but now they removed reshape from the free features this app is now stupid and not worth installing
Alisamay123 - Please give us back reshape and paint as free tools
We use to have reshape and paint for free , we understand you want to make money, I believe we are all ready to watch adds , so you can earn but please give us back our free reshape and paint tools. Thank you
