TouchRetouch Reviews


CRASHING  zeemorales7511  3 star

The app keeps crashing please fix


Woah...  Ekholbrook  5 star

Simply blown away by the quality and ease of use. Was quite skeptical because I'd been using other apps such as Snapseed to do powerline and blemish removal. Was worried about keeping full resolution output as well. This app blows everything else away.


Challenging to operate with finger  Jegulzz  3 star

I was hoping this would be easier to control with my finger. Also when it erases an object it leaves another “object” behind.


Not impressed  Nature_Mom138  1 star

Removal just leaves the photo extremely blurred as if it smudged after the removal was completed. This wasn’t as good as all these reviews make it out to be.


Amazing  Kilaeua  5 star

Even better than anticipated, I removed a power line pole ruining a forest photo with trees just behind it, it perfectly removed the pole without altering the trees behind it as well as the power lines that I didn't even select saving an additional step, love this app!


Fun  Surfgzr  5 star

Fun and easy to use!


Photoshop Fix Does Retouch Free And More  Andy_R.  3 star

I tried this and Adobe Photoshop Fix. After comparing the two, I wish I didn’t buy this app and could get a refund. Adobe Photoshop fix offers retouch capabilities and much more all for free. I also think Photoshop Fix does a better job at removing unwanted things from photos. Unless you really need the feature that easily removes lines from photos, I would advise trying Photoshop Fix.


Outstanding!!!  BTarmac  5 star

I am a professional in the business that does image knockouts daily, going back for decades using photoshop and other expensive desktop apps. These guys did very, very well, this app rocks!!!


The best photo related app  Pantscycle  5 star

This is amazing I can literally take out anything it is better in real life than it is shown on the AppStore I recommend this app to everyone who wants a good picture!

wizard ruby

There's separate apps for ipad  wizard ruby  1 star

I bought this apps from iPhone without realizing there is another apps for iPad. Why would they make a separate apps? It makes so much hassle and I need to fork out another $1.99 😡


Amazing App  mason_pj  5 star

Super fast and easy to use. Amazing results. The line removal for powerlines etc is particularly good. Best app of its kind I’ve used.


So Simple!  Kat25893  5 star

Loving this! So simple and easy to use.

Kevin Chiv

Great app overall  Kevin Chiv  4 star

However, having to purchase separately for the iPad and iPhone version is a bit too much. You could have introduced a package for both.


Decent  KINGBOB2208  3 star

It’s a good app but you can do the same thing using adobe photoshop fix and that is free.

Great for quick editing  Try again 7  5 star

Love love love fantastic editing app easy to use 💖


Awesome!  NamzApps  5 star

I am trying to make a movie, and with this I can remove anyone's accidental foot or other body part without having to film again! Definitely recommend having, just in case. 😉❤️👍🏼👌🏼


Not good  cas88126  1 star

Went to circle object as directed but instead of highlighting where I trace with my finger it highlights nowhere near wanted to remove object? Not even usable. Do not purchase not even worth using for free.


Had this app for years and wouldn’t be without it!!  nitrotash  5 star

I absolutely love this app. It is simple, effective and definitely a part of my “go to” group of apps which I wouldn’t be without. Highly recommend!


Better than class leading editing programs  RichDigital  5 star

I am amazed at how well this app can remove large objects with just a few strokes and the line removal editor is awesome. I have just removed a metal street sign which was in the foreground of my photograph. Gone!


Ripoff  tassiecelt  1 star

I bought the iPhone app for the iPad, the iPhone app is not well labeled. As usual it looks rubbish on iPad but I’m not paying again for it. Besides that it really doesn’t work as well as claimed. I have other apps that fail just as well as this. I advise against wasting your money

Chelly Cheese

BUY THIS APP!! Totally worth it!!!  Chelly Cheese  5 star

I NEVER buy apps! I repeat- I NEVER buy apps! I was like another reviewer and assumed there’s no way this could work... I wish I could show you the AMAZING photos I have achieved with this app! I can now take photos and just know I’ll remove something out of it, instead of just not taking the photo I wanted. Sometimes you have to retouch something you’ve removed to make the photo to your liking but I have not regret this purchase one time & even have friends who have bought it after seeing why I can do with it!


Dude this is so great  Elephanthat  5 star

I’m by no means a pro with photo editing but this app does exactly what it says it will and makes it so easy!


Words can’t describe how good this app is  H3rsh3i812  5 star

So many pictures I wasn’t able to post because of something lingering in the background that I didn’t want there but this app has solved all my problems... keep up the good work continue to make it better for us ♡


Horrible job. Do not buy.  Thetruthdotorg  1 star

This app ruins the photo. Don’t believe the glowing reviews.


What A Pleasant Surprise!  K'Shanti  5 star

I only purchased this app after my favorite one was no longer supported iOS Whichever. It took me forever to even try it. Boy, what a wonderful surprise! This is the best retouch I’ve ever used. And that includes the one on my Mac!


don’t buy  Flower33230  1 star

didn't work at all. made dark spots in pic. not happy at all.


Not worth the money  rjler  1 star

It’s only 2 bucks but the app isn’t anything special. Does a poor job of deleting background objects. A free app would work just as poorly.


Get this App  JaySun69  5 star

This is great on an iPad but still super fun on your phone. A must if you get divorced lol


Eh  ShyanneLJS  2 star

Would not waste money on this app. Offers barley any features and freezes.


Doesn’t work like the video implies..  parduekody  1 star

Don’t waste your money on this app. I trusted the video and images and paid for it, only to quickly find out its lack of skill. All this app is, is a EXTREMELY poor blur tool and won’t remove anything like the dev implies. Seriously, I’ve tried it on everything possible and it can’t process one image without a noticeable and very obvious smudge.


Does what it says on the tin  Bbbbbobby  5 star

You need to watch the provided video's and it is easy to get outstanding results. Alongside snapseed these are my two fave apps

Peace, the Great

Better use Photoshop Content Aware  Peace, the Great  2 star

Doesn't work so well for removing large object
