Subscription not necessary! 2/5
I decided to get the app and try out things to see if it really was worth the controversy! If it was, I'd delete my other apps in the same category--there are two. First, it seems in the description that you can have a "VIP" version, which isn't the subscription, and that wouldn't include the additional various fancy things that typically come with an app like this--the face altering/skin-improving ones. So, if you are going to go broke without a subscription, in my humble opinion, keep the facial features (skin, etc.) and then save the extras (light effects, blur, a couple of other things in the regular part, and vignettes, etc.) for the subscription. Just an idea if you really want to listen to your customers.
I don't mind NOT having the app without the subscription, since this app was terrible with making my teeth lighter, but they weren't the weird pink color until they were uploaded into the app. Other features do things I would use with some art apps, so we'll see how that goes. I'm sticking with my other 2 apps for improving the skin and overall photo, however. I tried the original Facetune and deleted it very soon. It seems that many apps are going to this subscription model, and it's going to be bad for their business. Hope this was helpful to someone!

i am paying for vip but can't access it
Really good app that has a lot of power 5/5
I have always loved this program and now it's even better with the new features I really appreciate you guys making such a great product
Terrific, Easy to use 5/5
This app is good for retouching
I've been trying to cancel my subscription for months but still get monthly charges. Don't purchase ANYTHING from facetune, they will keep taking your money whether you cancel or not.
It's great for what it is 3/5
By linda diane mcmillan
It does a good job of making skintones come alive. It doesn't do anything else.
I've been impressed! 5/5
By Tambura tutu
I've have loved this app for years. I'm sure I will for years to come.
Extremely disappointed 1/5
By Missing home,
This app leave you to believe that you can actually Photoshop your picture but you can't. Try other apps this one is much much too difficult and does not do what it says it's going to do. I can't even eat race a little zit. That is easy to do on others
It makes you look better 5/5
By Erm Hey
It's is one of my favorite apps. I haven't paid for more filters but the ones that are free work out just fine. It honestly have made my picture 10 times better.
Room for improvement! 3/5
I think the app would be way more appealing to me if I had the option to buy certain VIP filters and features without having to access them all and spend close to $40!
The new "VIP" is a ripoff! 1/5
I purchased Facetune 2 after liking the original. The upgrade was worth it with more refined features. And now? They took features away that we ALREADY PAID FOR, AND NOW
WE ARE FORCED TO PAY A MONTHLY "VIP" FEE IF WE WANT IT BACK. This is total b.s, and really bad business practice. I have a hard time believing it's even legal to remove what was previously purchased.
The fuk 1/5
I won't even open it before saying this
Great app 5/5
Love what it has to offer!! Saves having to take pic after pic and maybe ending up with one post worthy.
Give me a break 1/5
By Jay Street
Did the one time purchase for Facetune 1, but no way am I going to a subscription model for Facetune 2. I think somebody is a little out of touch with what the app does and what it's worth. Airbrush is better anyway.
By Joaquim N.
Subscription based? Seriously? What happened with the idea of paying for an app and actually getting all it could offer?
I have no issues paying 10 bucks for an app and I often pay even more but a subscription based app won't see a dime from me. And by the way, I purchased the version 1 and will keep that until it stops working since you guys decided to stop updating it last year and I purchased an app that will soon be useless!
Use it on a very regular basis 5/5
Great app, great features, great support! I would be lost without this app.
Best App Available To This Day!! 5/5
This is my most favorite and most used app I've ever come across. There isn't anything this app can't do! It's so surprising how much and how amazingly well this app does the things it says it does. It's shocking and totally worth the money! I don't regret a penny I put into this application. The best app out on any computer/phone/device. A+++++! Must Buy!!
It is an amazing app. I enjoyed using all of the tools and for sure it has made my photos 10x better!!!!
FaceTime is great 5/5
Love this app. Makes photos look professional
Edit problem solved 5/5
Love this app. The new features are really nice. My pictures are going to be even more amazing now. Thank you
I love it!
Add background 4/5
By Eng. Abu Jayyab
We want to add our own background with the photo not only these four or five backgrounds, but it's awesome and very helpful 👌🏻👌🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Just booght the month subscription and i cant fix any of my iPhone pictures its just horrible!! Waste of money!
Nice! I love it ❤️ 5/5
Love all the new tools. Fun to get rid of my imperfections 😌 I fixed one of my mothers pictures and put it in Facebook! Her friends were like wow you look fantastic...she's 80. I did NOT make all her wrinkles disappear. She touched her up. Whitening of her teeth made her look years younger. She said whatever you did THANKS!! She now has the app too!
What the frick man 2/5
DUDE WHAT THE FRICK MANNN WTW WITH UR APP NOT LETTING ME CLICK ON MY PICS AND OPEN THEM YOU DONT UNDERSTAND I RELY ON THIS IM TALKIN INSTAGRAM (livrao) AND VSCO (oliviaraoo) SO STEP IT UP BRO WHAT IS THIS BS
Love it 5/5
The best photography app
I hate this app 1/5
I have the first original app on all my devices. So I wanted to see what the new one was like but these is a mess I would not tell any one to get this any more they want you to pay for the stuff this is not photoshop they need to stop
Developer doesn't get it! 1/5
Most people sign up for free versions to take a "test drive" of an app. And are happy to live with adds on the border or half the functionality gone. If an app works as represented the mist people buy the in app purchases. This app was working relatively well but locked up forcing me to "practice" on a stranger and then required I store or send this photo on to someone. Sorry if you want your crap advertising to be delivered under my name or use my storage space then you've crossed a line. Free isn't worth it- you pay me! Also, there is a reason the app has so many one star ratings - a developer more interested in rebutting reviews from potential customers instead of focusing on improving the experience. Too bad - the app itself is quite nice...
Dishonest company and horrible app 1/5
***BEWARE THIS COMPANY PUTS OUT UPDATES NEARLY EVERY DAY TO BURY ALL THE BAD REVIEWS*** Also; an ex employee for the company has posted an interview online that the company posts and pays for false positive reviews. There is evidently a law firm that is looking into a lawsuit against them, and furthermore, apparently it's even a criminal offense of some type of fraud if a company is involved with false reviews. Who knew.
Anyway, stay away from this app and this company at all costs.
Worse than old version 1/5
The original Facetune was a great app, but after paying to upgrade it the developer decided to roll out Facetune 2, to extort more money in exchange for less functionality. For example, skin smoothing which was part of the free Facetune, now requires a paid VIP upgrade. No thanks.
Other apps offer more for free 1/5
Other apps offer you more for free. They consider smoothing skin to be a v.i.p choice and want you to buy the app. I deleted it instantly. I'll stick with Perfect365.
Even Better 5/5
By Facebook App Fan
I was an avid user of the original Facetune, but this version is even better. The tools are great for enhancing photos that you take with your iPhone (or save to your iPhone). This is clearly a "must have" app, and the cost to get all of the tools is both nominal and highly worth it. I truly enjoy the full functionality of this app!
fantastic app 5/5
I literally use this before every Instagram post
Love this app but... 5/5
Absolutely love this but wish there was a tanning feature for skin
New to FaceTune but loving it so far
Won't give me my VIP after paid 1/5
Paid for the one year subscription. Mine won't reset until jan2018 and I just got a new iPhone, I downloaded the app again and it's asking me to try or resubscribe for another year when I already did it!!
Subscription/pay one price expensive 3/5
Congrats on a well thought out successor app. I cannot imagine the work it takes to make such an app nor would I critique negatively. However, I do have tremendous experience and skill at spending money and I will not spend my money on this one.
Update: I received a quick reply from the developers after leaving a review regarding the subscription option. Clearly I missed the pay one time option. Why? I clicked on VIP and read from left to right. The 34.99 price is so insanely high that my brain prob just read it as another subscription price. There are enough apps out that have these options. If I have to close, save, and import to another app then I will without paying 40 dollars. At 4.99 or so, I'd buy it. Clearly the developers are listening so kudos to them. Price point is everything.
Amazingly fun app! 5/5
By My bet
I love this app! It's so much fun and it's crazy how much you can do!!!!!
Simply Awesome 5/5
So may possibilities, yet easy to use. Tutorials offer convenient method of learning all of the apps features.
Great app, but.... 5/5
I wish you would sell Individual tools! There are a few that I already have from other apps. I'm sure that I'm not the only one. Please, go back to selling individual tools and retouching features. I already had purchased Facetune 1. Thanks
New update needs to be fixed 3/5
I just updated the app and now it won't open. It just stays on the logo page until it crashes. Please fix soon ):
Very best facial editing app I have ever used!
Not as good as regular Facetune 2/5
The original facetime app is excellent and I am able to get very nice results with it. This version is annoying at best. It claims to do much more but does it in a clumsy and inaccurate way. I've been using clone tools in a variety of programs for many years. It is usually a straightforward process that yields predictable results. The clone tool here is nasty. I just spent almost an hour trying to clone over one small spot. There was no consistency in the way it worked. I had to hit reset and start over at least 15 times. And still have not been able to cover over one small spot. It basically made a mess of the picture every time. There is nothing that works well enough to be bothered with. The first facetune app is excellent and well worth buying. It does a very nice job covering wrinkles and more with ease.
I dont like it want money back 1/5
Can I please have my money back?
Like iPhone photoshop 5/5
Great for blemish removal and skin smoothing. Love it!
The Gold Standard 4/5
Facetune 2 is, along with Snapseed, the Gold Standard of photo editing on the iPhone. I will forego the gushing over it, though, and suggest to the developers:
1) Default location tagging to off. Please. This is a privacy concern.
2) Improvement is needed for your "Auto" retouch. It almost never gives an acceptable result, mostly because it is "smooth-heavy" and doesn't fix flesh tones.
3) As previously mentioned, don't rename every photo to facetune.jpg
4) Allow the option to save the same image as modified, with undo options, or a new copy.
5) Looking to see more significant monthly updates. Adding back an old filter is just not cutting it.
My comments not withstanding, this is an excellent app, a must-have if you want your pics to look their best. Highly recommended!
Not much different than other apps 1/5
I could get the same features free by using multiple other apps. There's even an app out there with the same features for $8 without having to pay a monthly fee or pay $25 once for all of the features. Update-once you have the app and purchase the add ons they do not follow onto your other devices
Not worth it 1/5
I bought the full package ($40). The filters are clumsy & you cannot get the fine tuning that they show you in the illustrations. I am seeking my money back.
