Workflow is terrible 2/5
I have used this app for well over a year and am a premium subscriber. I generally like it although the interface and workflow have always been a little clunky. However, this latest update made the app far worse. I can’t seem to access the graphics I had previously created anymore and I hate the way the graphics are organized and presented at startup.
Since I already paid for my annual subscription back in November I guess I have to ride it out, but I won’t be renewing unless some MAJOR changes to this app are quickly forthcoming. It has become nearly useless to me now.
Come on, developers! Your new interface is worse than the new Snapchat!
Not happy I have to pay 1/5
A few years ago I paid for over and used it quite frequently. I had the full app. However...... the developers didn’t keep up with it. Then a new group takes over... great... however now I have to pay additional fees after I paid for it already years ago to continue to work it. Really frustrating. Figures all companies just want more money from you.

I've had this app for many many years. Love the potential of what I can creat with it. They constantly update the app with incredible features. I’m hoping soon they’ll have a pc version!!! Over is my go to every time! Thanks to the Over team!!!
Overall the best editing app I have found 4/5
The possibilities are endless, I don’t need to bother with expensive photoshop suites. This is 100% worth the money if you plan to use this often like I do.
The formatted sizes and immense graphics available are something I’ve yet to find on any other app. I’m staying on IOS specifically for this application.
For those of you who use adobe photoshop express or picsart etc. - this is 1 million times better, more intuitive, and has way better developed tools including locking layers, changing project sizes after the fact, tons of fonts, more graphics and templates than you could ever use, projects you can actually re-open to edit specific layers, shapes, shadows, opacity options, and the best eraser tool I’ve ever used.
My only issue and why I didn’t at this time give it 5 stars is that since the recent update (which I love in every other way) I experience issues with the app closing randomly which causes some project progress loss and often when I click on one of my projects nothing happens and I can start a new project but no longer work on the original which is disheartening when you lose 30 minutes of very tedius effects or background erasing.
To be fair, I love love this app but the project issues do seem pretty frequent for me at the moment which may or may not be the developers fault and could just be an apple issue.
One small suggestion. collections organization of collected graphic assets is overwhelmingly chaotic, it would be awesome to be able to set an asset to collect to a specific album such as backgrounds or letters or animals etc. They offer so many options it’s hard to get through them all even with the search feature but there are certainly worse problems to have than too much awesome stuff.
If your looking for confirmation to take the leap of faith to pro, I would recommend it for any hobbyist, pro designer, or anyone looking to make social media/streaming graphics. You can seriously do it all with this!!
Beware!! Monthly charge! 1/5
By kristin dep
I found this app not very useful and had no idea it was a monthly fee!
$9.99 per month, or 50 bucks a year? Forever? 1/5
Based on its self-declared awesomeness I could see myself (with better value prop presentation) purchasing the "pro" version for a ONE-TIME $50 (the equivalent of a one year's subscription) and maybe a few reasonably priced design packs here and there. But $9.99 a month into perpetuity? Seriously? That's just ridiculous for what's essentially a cookie cutter "build your own meme" app. I find it both intellectually insulting yet fascinatingly ballsy because if you guys seriously hit the market at this price point, you must be reasonably convinced there's a real ROI. Color me skeptical but I'd stick with Typorama or even Phonto before I'd EVER pay 10 bucks a month to drag some text, shapes and images together. It's just so absurd...
Once a great app. 2/5
I've been using this for years to add text and edit images. In late 2016 they added a subscription model, but kept everything that had been free and allowed us to restore purchases for the things we had purchased to support their development. In a recent update the basic shapes that had been moved to the Graphic section disappeared. Despite scrolling for what feels like days I can't find the basic shapes that used to be included in the app. This is a major step back for me. I liked Over because it was simple and easy to use, but the subscription is incredibly overpriced. I think I'll just go back to Pixelmator.
SAVES IN LOW QUALITY 2/5
How terrible it is to edit something and then have it save in crappy quality. The mask tool isn't very good because you can’t change the opacity to erase certain parts and the subscription for pro is pretty expensive.
Update: I use the square size for INSTAGRAM which I’m sure lots of other people use as well. I have no interest in any other sizes
Fantastic for small business! 5/5
I use this for a couple small businesses that I have. My husband has tools/skills in graphic design but doesn't always have time to put things together. Through this I can do things myself and they look amazing! I feel professionals s put together. Love love love this app and use it ALL the time! I only wish I could remove older projects to free up space, and maybe you can, in just not uber savvy.
This App is the best out there when it comes to editing and creating Logos. If you a Fantasy Football junket and want to make league and team logo’s this is the app for you.
Get this app! 5/5
This easy to use and cost effective app should be in every entrepreneurs toolbox!
Love it! (Update) feb 2018 1/5
By Audiophile Tom
I have a lot of fun using the text and different styles to add . UPDATE !!AFTER this latest change having to go through fb, it’s time to delete this app, it’s not worth the hassle anymore, you make changes it’s for the worse......
So disappointed! 1/5
Years ago I paid 4 dollars for the app and now it’s a subscription business? I really want my money back!
Amazing but crashes 3/5
Amazing app and definitely worth the money other than the fact that Ill get into editing layers and it suddenly crashes and I lose everything 😒
Progressively getting worse 1/5
By Best reviewer for you
I’ve had this app since it was a free app of the week. Soon after, they basically made that irrelevant with their overpriced subscription.
Okay, fine. I can still use basic I guess.
Over time this has become less and less possible. To do anything that you can’t do in MSpaint now requires $10 a month. To place a shape, a feature that I don’t think is worth premium, requires a subscription now. Basic shapes are gone (or hidden extremely well, I haven’t been able to find them).
Don’t but the subscription for this app, its basically a rip off of (((another))) more popular app also with a subscription, but that at least has more features.
To the Over team, great job on ruining a fun app.
Why not pay once 4/5
By Ori Pap
I really like this app and it has great features, but why do I have to pay for a subscription to get the best stuff?? I already have enough subscriptions... This seems like it would hurt the developers more than help them. I would GLADLY pay once for everything, I'm definitely not buying a horrible subscription.
Ok but beware the subscription costs 3/5
App was ok but the sub costs? No thanks.
Phenomenal App 5/5
By Danilo Salguero
Great app - very easy to use 5/5
So many features and so easy to use. Dies a great job
My fave! 5/5
Over definitely has a small learning curve to it, but - trust me - it’s worth taking the time to go through the tutorials and pay the bit extra for its great features. You won’t regret it!
It’s really really good but still not quite great 5/5
I’ve been using this app for years now. It’s my go to app for editing all the work that goes on my business page. Only frustrating thing is the PRO option. I don’t want to pay a yearly fee nor a monthly fee because there are only SOME things I need from the PRO option and not ALL things. I wish I could buy those things individually instead of having to subscribe to a load of options I won’t use. Otherwise, I don’t really have any other complaints.
My job is Over 5/5
By AKA Chad E
I started using Over to tag photos for or job. I also started using Over for our different Facebook post. Adding our Logos to different we’ll know photos I catch our followers eyes. It’s been great!!
Cropping and Resizing 5/5
It could really use some easy cropping and resizing tools! Otherwise, great app!
Me encanta 5/5
Amazing app! 5/5
I tried a lot of different photo editing apps and this is the best!!! Hands down.
They have quick customer service responses (very friendly), endless templates to play with and easy to follow tutorials in the app.
Congrats to the Over team.
I’m a fan for life. 🙋🏾♀️
I think over is okay but it doesn’t explain how your supposed to use the app which is kind of confusing and it doesn’t have much of a variety
Be Forewarned - subscription needed 1/5
I’m not quite sure what makes these developers think that people want to pay a bunch of subscriptions for apps each month! It’s absolutely ridiculous that this app, which used to be my complete and total favorite app feels like crap now. I would rather just have a decent app with upgrades that you could pay for one time and own. A subscription to an app, never! Sadly though, this is one of the mini great apps that has gone this route and I just don’t get it. I can only hope a competitor creates one as nice and understand that this app subscription trend is temporary.
Fonts missing 3/5
Where did some of my favorite fonts go? Specifically Blackout?? I used these everyday.
It worth every penny 5/5
By Ben 4 friends
I love it.the best app.I use this app all the time
Where is the ability to crop?! 4/5
I have been using the app Over for a while now and love pretty much everything about it! The only thing that I keep waiting for is the ability to crop photos from within the app! This would be a game changer and allow me to use this app exclusively.
Best app ever 5/5
I love your guys app
Better before Pro 3/5
Yes the Pro "seems" like a great feature but for those of us who have paid for the app, we shouldn't have to pay each month or annually. Also, I liked the option of purchasing packs for fonts or backgrounds etc but now I don’t have that option. Please bring it back.
Used to be good, but now they charge 1/5
I had paid for over a long time ago, I had access to most of the features. If I wanted to add a basic shape like a circle I could do so. The app worked great without needing to buy additional fonts and graphics. But now they want you to subscribe to access stuff you could access for free before. I’m really disappointed
No rival 5/5
By rom de los rios
I’ve tried many other editing apps and I have to say that this one is the best by far. I don’t have the pro version but I can do everything I need with the free version. THE BEST!
Photoshop without all the EXTRA 5/5
By Jeni Brower
Love the flexibility and customization options!! Thank you for making this.
Downhill trajectory 1/5
All below still applies but I moved it from 3 stars to 1 star because of the incredibly awful and cloying version notes for each update: just tell us what the update does.
My review below of version 3 still applies for version 4, except they're selling even harder now.
With each update this app keeps getting more complicated and less useful. I keep using it because I already purchased various fonts but I won't be paying anymore for anything they're selling. Subscriptions are for suckers.
Great App, Greedy Monthly Cost 2/5
I loved this app. It was awesome until they started over pricing their subscription. It’s a text app. Not only that for members like my self who purchased in app additional fonts, once they started pushing the subscription I felt like I lost many of the exclusive fonts I had purchased. Overall love the app just enough to pay monthly for it. Time to find an alternative
Used to be great... 1/5
....but now the constant upsell to PRO makes the app pretty much useless. I believe in support developers but $10/month is not justified in this app's case. Time to delete, farewell Over, it's over.
A God Send 5/5
I have been using over for 3 years now on a daily basis. The app itself is incredibly versatile and compatible with importing fonts and using other apps. The abilities of the little app are quite impressive. I highly recommend the annual subscription. It’s so inexpensive for the quality of product and worth every penny.
I love that I can create graphics on the fly and not be limited to always needing to have a computer. The pixel size is also fantastic.
I can make graphics for the social media, the web, brochures, posters, banners, and to infinity and beyond!
Not only is the app incredibly useful, well stocked with tools and packages, high quality, easy to use and compatible across the board, but most critically, the customer service is second to none.
Way to go Over! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Best, unless 3/5
Over is the best, unless the bug becomes fixed ! : I’m using this app for 10 monthes and I’m waiting to fix this bug on every update, but it’s not, the bug is when you add multiple layers to an image, speed goes lower and lower and it has many lags till the end....
System crash 1/5
Every time I use and save my project it has been crashing without any reason
Great App! 5/5
This App literally saved my life. I write stories, but the cover app I normally use stopped working. I was frantically looking around for another app that I could use, then I found this. It’s so easy to use, even the free fonts and effects are great, and I’m so happy I stumbled across it!
No a subscription fan😩 4/5
By Dirt Baby
Please allow us to buy what we want.
The VSCO of typography overlay apps 5/5
By Lord Laurent
One of the most quality apps I have ever downloaded. This is not a paid review and I can’t remember the last time I even wrote a review. Entirely intuitive, extremely thorough in its features and aesthetic in its design. This is coming from and industry professional.
Font import fix 4/5
Here’s a quick fix for those of you who are having trouble importing fonts into the app. Thank you to Ella of the development team for pointing me in the right direction. Apparently the Over app can’t handle zip files just yet (hopefully an update in the future will fix that). When you import a zip file of your favorite font from an online source, do not choose your destination to be the Over app itself, but rather another app that will allow unzipping of the file first. I use the GoodReader app which is phenomenal in its own way. After unzipping the file go directly to the .ttf font file itself and export it into the over app by using the “Open in“ Feature. This works perfectly and shows up in your downloaded list of fonts. Hope this advice proves helpful
taking away core features and charging 1/5
By Aspiring 'Tender
so you update and take away the core ability to draw a box on a picture, then offer to sell me an upgrade that does what i already paid for?! for shame, over!! for shame. not gonna waste more money on you.
Love the OVER 5/5
Thrilled to be seeking all the ways we can get more creative. Love this app for myself and my business!!!
It's to buggy and laggy 4/5
By Olivia frenz
I love this app but it keeps on lagging me out for no reason.
Worth $10 a month? Not even close. 2/5
I’ve been using Over since it was first available on the App Store however many years ago. It’s features are amazing, and I often found myself asking “how is this free?” I have no problem supporting this app monetarily because its functions are quite amazing. However, $10 A MONTH is out of the question. Especially since at one point, you had the option to purchase whatever features and packages you wanted for a one-time fee.
I don’t care about extra fonts or preset graphics. All I want is to have access to the shapes, a feature that at one point, was free. It just seems ridiculous to ask for $10 a month when I can get a monthly subscription to Adobe Photoshop for just $10 more, and have access to about a thousand times more content.
Either offer the option to purchase things at a one-time fee, or add more features that make $10 a month worth it. Better yet, scrap the subscription idea altogether and just add more features and charge $15 a piece for them. I’d rather do that than spend $120 a year just to be able to use the shapes tool.
It says it’s free but I downloaded it and found out I had to pay I would recommend one were you don’t have to pay
