Not There Yet 3/5
While I’m generally a fan of the Enlight apps, this one got the big delete. The “wow factor” strobe effect isn’t valuable to me. If I’m shooting action, I will shoot continuous HDR and use live photo or shoot video and enhance speed to get a similar look. The selection of filters is unusually well curated even on the free version, so if you need those, you could take a look. Many apps like this one are also transitioning to a subscription model; for now, the feature set isn’t there for me on this one.
This is such a great and helpful application. I take worderful pictures on my 5s but one issue is that the app is a bit laggy on lowlight situations but maybe that's normal. Overall it is the most useful and helpful camera app!
Not updating 1/5
Hey...the app isn’t updating.
On iPhone or iPad.
Interesting concept, missing some needed features, still half baked 3/5
A company has the right to set its own pricing, and let consumers decide if they want to pay it. I tried the app for one month and I think the price is too high.
From a feature perspective, the filters are interesting but not unique and there are others that I prefer much more, such as VSCO.
The photo adjustments are good, but do not appear to be unique compared to other cheaper applications.
So in summary: not bad, but not worth the price.

First, I have to say that I use Enlight (the original) for at least 75% of my serious editing; I might qualify as an Enlight expert, lol. I know how to tweak that app to produce just about any effect I want. In fact, I'm nervous the developers will abandon Enlight#1 since newer apps come with subscriptions & high price tags. I'm sure my Enlight#1 devotion isn't making them any money.
Quickshot is a perfectly nice app having a TON of filter tweaks possible with the free version. Forgetting about my needs, I'd give it 4 stars for quality–but minus 1 star for the crazy pricing.
As for my needs...I can produce the same looks without this app. I can't find a feature on it that I "need," that's missing from my darkroom of five or six favorite apps. The strobe is not one I need. I did not find a masking tool or any type of "select" or "brush" tools that will allow me to alter only one portion of a photo. That's a mandatory feature IMO and If I've missed it, please let me know.
I cannot be convinced this Quickshot app is worth $20. I'm not sure what I would need a photo app to be able to DO for me to pay that much. Maybe include a top-quality printing service that also offers one free canvas or enlargement per month? These days all limitations in iPhone photos result from camera flaws. We need an iPhone that can handle high light without burnout and low light without grain. Or an app that can correct for these but I'm pretty sure that's impossible.
PS: Facetune1 is one of my essential apps as well. I don't need it often, but sometimes nothing will do besides its "Tone" tool.
So I love this developer's work. Quickshot doesn't fill a void of mine but it might for others.
Making this app a subscription is just all wrong. $20 is way too much. It's not worth it at all. I have plenty of other photo editing apps that are better. Lightricks should be ashamed.
Once again subscription model 1/5
I'm pretty frustrated that I bought the other version of this and now they come out with this subscription model.
Seems pretty decent 4/5
So far looks very impressive, but trying to figure out if I can gat app to save in RAW mode as well??
Just isn't that interesting 1/5
The filters aren't great and the UI is confusing. Plus it's expensive to unlock the full app functionality, and it's not even a permanent purchase--it's yet another subscription scheme. 🙈💸😒
App Fantastic - Price not so much 3/5
I am captive audience when it comes to Enlight. I've disseminated this app like crazy. The price point is starting to sound like nonsensical valuation numbers for some genius businesses on Shark Tank. I am not sure how Lightricks arrived at $19.99 for all access, but this seems to be the only factor keeping this company from collecting a million sign ups. Doubling Enlight's tag is not bad at all because you sell a high quality product and with more than your predecessor can do. Quadrupling seems a bit much, especially when your competition is not so far behind. I will keep hoping for a change of mind and will buy this app in a heartbeat if it is offered under $10. Congratulations on incredible products that you have designed so far!
For an app that charges monthly, there are tons of better options out there. This is just blatantly redundant
Better app's out there... 1/5
Snapseed and VSCO are really the only creative toolbox app's you need.
Save your money...
First off, with the free version you do get some nifty filters. It’s not a bad app. Of course the cooler features, like the interesting “strobe”, are behind a paywall.
To the devs: Please rethink your subscription model. Standalone apps that require subscription feel like old arcade games where we have to keep inserting quarters simply to play. There is no "service" associated with this product unlike apps like Dropbox or Netflix which have immense ongoing overhead costs at their very core.
Now that there are multiple Enlight apps requiring subscription, there is an opportunity to create value by allowing a single subscription that unlocks all of their apps.
Pricing is a delicate thing and I think Enlight could refine things to make them more palatable. For example, if the “lifetime unlock” were $8.99 then I’d purchase with barely a thought. But $19.99? That requires me to really vet the app to decide if it’s worth it. (And I’d recommend ditching the marketing where the app is arbitrarily “$79.99 full price”. That just seems silly…)
Stay away, Use VSCO or Snapseed 1/5
Paying money to take photos or use filters on a photos is a bad money grabbing idea.
The new great photo app 5/5
Like Facetune and Enlight it's another great app. I really recommend to try the extra features even if you pay for one month
Pretty cool 5/5
By Avi Shap1115
So easy to edit my photos and make quick photos to upload up to my social accounts.
Another must app by lightricks!!
Better than any other app 5/5
I really like the filtering and the strobe options that you get for free. Can wait to explore more.
Not worth the money 1/5
For the limited functionality, maybe $2 will be a more fitting price.
Very cool features I love the HDR+ and quickshot is awesome.... I hope I can get raw or tiff support.... maybe a photo stacking option for regular photo taking
Too expensive 1/5
Not worth it
Another app that you don't pay once and use. Oh wait, you can do that for $19.99!?!?! Seriously? These companies must really be struggling. Make it 2.99-4.99 and watch sales go up. Stupid ideas like this has ruined the App Store a long time ago.
Bought the 10 dollars for one year. So far absolutely horrible . Money grabbers.... smh the Ui is horrible the amount of filters is basically a joke . The effects are half baked. Save the money and buy VSCO premium that's key! You convinced me that the camera in my pocket is great without this app . Kudos
Great product 5/5
This app is really easy to use - loving the Quickshot feature and the presets. You can edit a few photos at once and apply presets to lots of photos at same time. a+++
My iPhone freeze! 1/5
My iPhone get freeze every using this app running iOS 11 Beta 9!
This isn't enlight photos 1/5
By Cptn. Amir
20 dollars for an app that has very few filters and features that the stock Photos app can do!! You can find app that can do all of its functions and even more for a fraction of $20.
The only thing i like about this app is the confidence of its developers that thought they could sell this very limited app for $20. Good luck
