Polarr Photo Editor Reviews


Easy and intuitive  britmcgrizzle  5 star

Loving this app! Excellent photo editor that's easy to use, and has all the features for both light and semi-professional photo editing on your phone. I've really enjoyed using it.


Doesn’t work with HEIF  NeedApple  1 star

Any HEIF photos taken with ios11 do not work if you try to edit from the edit extension in photos. I reported this for weeks prior to release. Update - the latest HEIF updates have still not fixed this problem.


Best photo editing app!!!  Xbchhdbdbd  5 star

I’ve downloaded lots of photo apps and this one is the most professional! It’s very easy to use and there are plenty of options


Best Editing Option on Phone  Hbc369  5 star

If you use photoshop or Lightroom to edit this app will put you right at home. Similar controls. Not a good “filter” or insta type editor but overall much more powerful than most that I’ve used.


Unusable  moiraphael  1 star

1. Can not edit photos directly in Photos app. The interface pops up, but photos don’t load. 2. So I have to use the standalone app. But 2.1. Can not save as HEIF format to the original file. 2.2 so I have to save as jpg. But once it’s saved, I can’t reopen and add more adjustments to it. Polarr used to be a super nice photo editing app. But now it has so many problems that it nearly becomes unusable.


BEST SELFIE EDITOR 😍  😍😛👅  5 star

best app ever!! So many editing options and filters. Including the radial which I love!


THE BEST OUT THERE  amazeballs005  5 star

Been looking for great quality photo editing app lately and fortunately stumbled upon this. I have never seen a FREE editing app like this that has almost everything and is entirely unique. Definitely gratifies the full potential of your photos!


I love this app but...  Itsnaomiyeboah  5 star

There are a few problems that need to addressed... I unlocked the 2 hour premium filter but when I tapped on them they wouldn’t show.

Truthful Critique

Honest words.  Truthful Critique  5 star

This is the best photo editing app I have ever used in my life. It is so easy to use and it has so many useful purposes that can be found all on this one app!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Atyer II

Won't even open  Atyer II  1 star

Apparently this app is great but I wouldn't know because it doesn't even open...


perfect!  LilianeBrisebois  5 star

By far the best editing app out there (trust me I've tried them all). It brings in all the elements I would want that other apps just seem to skip over like HSL and Curves as well as pinpointed exposure control. Quick and easy, no more need to go through photoshop to edit my phone pictures correctly! I don't understand why this isn't more popular aha


Great free app  Stinland  5 star

In a completely different class than all other free editing apps.


i love it except..  francescapanunti  4 star

so ive been using polarr for a short period of time, but enough to know how it works. for some reason, all of a sudden, when i go to edit a specific spot in my picture, the app chooses a different picture from my camera roll and then i lose whatever i edited on the picture i was initially editing. but other than that i love it

Hello darkness smile friend i cam talk me with you


THE NEW UPDATE  Itsjustmepeach  1 star

The app was great and everything my favorite app with so many features but ever since the update something as simple as adding saturation you now have to pay for :( the app is basically useless now


Major Improvements !!  Dv([email protected]  5 star

Lots of improvements over last several months. Working great and a good tool for a photography tool box 👍🏻
