Fun, easy and effective 5/5
By C Butte
This app is a wonderful way to get unwanted objects out of a photo! Excellent tutorials included.
Freaking love this 5/5
Love it... wish it had like burn and dodge but I'll take it
Does this app remove glare? 1/5
The brush tool does not work well when trying to remove glare because it considers it an object. Please help.
Wow... just wow 5/5
Code quality, interface quality, tutorial quality. This app has it all.
Best object removal software PERIOD. 5/5
I'm a graphic designer by trade and a hobbyist photographer in my spare time, and I've used a number of object removal apps for both iOS and desktop (Mac), as both standalone apps and PS/LR/Aperture plugins. None of them can hold a candle to the consistent accuracy of TouchRetouch. It's blazing fast, rugged, and reproducible. Can't ask for much more than that! Thanks, Devs! 😍
Fantastic app. 5/5
But as of Sep 8 my app started crashing
Magical Results 5/5
By Ice Cream Smith
I've gotten some amazing results with this app. Excellent when the background is fairly uniform. I've easily vaporized people sitting on the beach and on grass at a park. It also did an amazing job removing bridge cable that obscured one of my shots. Fun and easy to use!

I was able to make a picture of my daughter dressed up in a superhero costume. To look like she was actually a superhero. She loved it and so did my whole family. Great app!!!!
Don't buy it 1/5
Extremely unsatisfied and upset with this. Bought the app a few days ago, now the app crashes when you go to pick a photo. Would like my money back!!
Major disappointment 1/5
I bought this app as friends love it. Me, not as much.
I bought & downloaded to my iPhone 5s and now I have to buy the program again to download to my iPad ????
And again 5x's as much for my MAC!
What a great app, so easy to use. Took a few try's to get hang of it but now it's so easy and works perfectly for removing an unwanted object in a photo.
So bad 1/5
By Ghostie Magee
Really bad editing don't waste your money
App stopped working 3/5
APP stopped working. When searching for a photo in the photo library, it closes everything automatically and does not work.
Top three best photo editing apps! 5/5
By Huong Vo
I LOVE this app! As a fashion blogger, it's easy and quick to use to remove blemishes, lines and do small retouches. It's like Photoshop in your pocket! Definitely one of my blogging secrets!
Truly amazing 🙏👍😎💜 5/5
Wow! What a great update. I have been using this app for years Works like magic.
I had to delete the old app before I could see the new one even though I updated it, the old app was still there. I am using the new app now and love it.
Love this app - Need to work on an update for glitches 4/5
I love this app and have been using it for about a year now. Lately, whenever I go into the app, and select a photo to edit, the app crashes. I have made sure it's updated as well as deleted and re-downloaded the app. I wish the glitch would be fixed because I love Retouch and need it for editing!
Best Version Yet 5/5
I was dubious about this app as I didn't much like the idea of messing with my pictures especially as I am clumsy. That was about three years ago...
I think I'm into the third update of Touch Retouch and they keep improving it.
It's easy - really - and unobtrusive and it encourages me to take risks with my photo compositions. For instance if there is an obtrusive sign or wire I just don't care. I know how to get rid of it in seconds.
The latest version makes everything easier and better integrated into your photo files than previously.
Use with confidence. Can't recommend this app enough
One of my favorite apps!!! 5/5
This app is all I need to remove unwanted objects from my pictures. I love it!!
Great customer support! 5/5
By G-Ma Roxy
I was having problems removing a somewhat complicated background from a picture of my grandchildren and me. I explained the issues I was having and got a quick response and a more than satisfactory outcome. Thanks Evelina Chaves Gonzales,
Customer Support Representative! It's my new Facebook cover photo now!
Incredible and simple 5/5
By Alijah Simon
Although I am annoyed that the iPad version is an addition charge on top of this version, this app is simple and easy to use. All iPhone photographers should be armed with this!
terrible app, I want my money back 1/5
whenever I tried to get rid of an object like the app says it will, it leaves a blemish and it isn't like the rest of the background. false advertising if anything.
Crashes at start up 2/5
By Kenny Paul Highballer
Worked fine for a few weeks. Now when I open it it blinks and then my phone goes back to the home screen. Unusable at the present moment. I'll change my review to five stars if it becomes usable again. The app is great when it works.
Please write an update!! 3/5
By Bayside Studios
My app just now starts crashing!! I urge you to write a program update for this app!! It doesn't even work!! Crashes upon launching it!!
Great app for cleaning up photos. 5/5
I've had this app for quite awhile on my iPhone. I am so happy to see the new update, as well as the iPad version with update.
Still a solid 5 star app! 5/5
You didn't break it! Yay!
I am usually very hesitant about complete overhauls when it comes to app updates because this typically ruins the app or at best, changes it completely.
I am happy to report that this is certainly not the case here. The developers have done a remarkable job of managing to completely revamp the interface well leaving the essence of the app as powerful and original as always. The update improves upon this amazing and simple editing tool - which they have already done a five star job on, and yet there is hardly any learning curve. That's the really amazing part. They haven't lost any of the awesome tools or even the process for implementing those tools, yet they have added improvements that I hadn't even thought of!
The look was so different in this new update that I was worried my favorite cloning and "fixing" app had forever been lost, but I was wrong! They completely change the look of the app they added improvements to the app, but I am happy to report that the app is still as awesome as ever, it's just even better if that's even possible.
I personally don't understand what the big deal is with the minimal interface look, it's not really my thing, but if that's the only thing I have to complain about then I am a happy customer. I'll live with the simplified, 2-D look. And I will do so happily.
*Great job you guys! Y'all obviously put a great deal of thought and consideration into this update and we are very, very grateful! 🙏🏻😊❤️📸

(I'm still trying to get used to the app icon, but that will come with time I'm sure)! 😁
I've used this app for years now, and there's no other app that works as well as this one. I'm about to remove a telephone wire from one of my photos - a common reason why I use this app is to get rid of these types of annoyances. It totally rocks. I'm not sure what the complaints are about, it works the same as it always has, for me!
Not perfect, but it works with most touch-ups!
Does not remove objects in a clean way 1/5
I thought this would remove unwanted objects and take on the background of what was behind the removed object. Instead it just removes the object and everything around it and takes on the wrong part of the background.
Works as advertised so well! 5/5
I needed this app to take away a few small sweat spots that although were very little were quite distracting. This app got the job done SO easily. I only used it for that but it worked so well I assume their other functions work just as good. I would highly recommend, well worth the price
Please refund my money!! 1/5
Did not work as advertised!! Created horrible smudge. Wasted my time and money :(
Does not meet my expectations 1/5
Not sure what everyone is raving about I could not get items removed from my photo as shown in the tutorial. Instead there was a bad smudge where the item on the picture used to be and it looks horrible
What an amazing tool 5/5
By Melodic Surface
This is power in your pocket! Should be on the must-have list of any photographer, it's such a simple yet effective tool for everything from quick edits to cleaning up extra noise all throughout an image. And the line removal tools are pretty impressive!
Superb mobile retouch! 5/5
This retouch app is superb! I use it so much more then I expected I would. I have even taken to performing broad line and object removal in app on my phone before I even import to my desktop to finalize in photoshop. I can do in seconds with this app what would take 20+ minutes with adobe clone/stamp etc. For quick edits before in-device social media uploads, this app can't be beat!
This app works surprisingly well. It's not perfect (sometimes it copies unwanted artifacts from nearby to fill in the erased area, but even Photoshop does the same) but it is quite amazing how it gets rid of straight lines and it does a very good job on "blemishes." Really good job on this!
Faster than Superman 5/5
The easiest I have used. Does what it says it will do. If you don't use this, your wood is all wet. Budster
Fabulous Absolutely Fabulous 5/5
I forget if I paid for this app. I probably did. If so, it's worth every single penny.
It removes objects from my photos like no other app can. It's unbelievable! It clones. It removes wires! It's just really awesome!
It's way better than Photoshop! And so much easier to use.
My number one favorite app!!!
Get it!!! You won't regret it.
Not what it advertises 1/5
Sure you can remove things but it drags the nearest object nearby to cover the space. Not worth $1.99
Here's the deal... (Updated review) 3/5
I got this app to remove an object from a photo I took at a wedding. Unfortunately it did not work and turned my photo into a smudged, unidentifiable mess.
What this app does is fill in what you removed by cloning it with surrounding pixels. In my case, people were surrounding the object I needed to remove. So the result was several hilarious clones of the person that was near the object I was attempting to remove.
In other photos I tried to remove an object and hair was cloned. In another the door or the couch was cloned. And so on.
The only successful objects that looked decent were photos that had grass or sky where the object was in the open and nothing was surrounding it. For example I removed a flower in one photo and it looked fairly seamless. In another photo I removed a bird from the sky. The grass/sky was easily filled in/cloned after the object was removed only because of the similarity of the surrounding pixels.
I have used Photoshop for years so I am familiar using all of these tools. If you have plain, simple backgrounds with similar, surrounding pixels that have an object/words you want to remove, this app may work okay for that purpose. Otherwise I can't recommend it.
Update: I am increasing from 2 to 3 stars. I've tried this app on quite a few more photos since I wrote my original review. While I still stand by my original review, I have been able to get some pretty decent results on some photos. I particularly like using the lasso tool to more precisely remove the area or object. I have also used it to clone an area or pattern on my photo. My results were similar to the results I get when I use Photoshop. Perfect? No. But not bad.
Would I recommend it now? If you're not expecting it to be a substitute for Photoshop, then yes. For what it's worth, it's an okay app. The results will obviously greatly vary depending on the photo and the object you are trying to remove.
Waste of money 1/5
By Rocque Leigh Grandstrand
Just smudged. Want my $2
Not great!! 1/5
This app, when you buy it, is nothing like what they show in the video when you search for the app. On the video when you highlight something with the brush and you erase it; it looks like the picture is perfect but when you physically do it yourself the picture becomes blurred where you deleted the object and you can clearly tell that someone was trying to edit the photo. So if you're looking at this app and you're debating on whether or not to pay $2 for it don't because you can get a better app than this for free!!
Worth every cent 5/5
I love this app for QUICK & EASY object removal. A lot of the negative reviews are true, it may not work perfectly with complex scenes but it doesn't claim to work miracles. I Just got back from Europe with 1,100 pics on the phone. Removing the person with the neon green jacket in front of a field of Windmills alone made this app worth it. Won't work in super crowded places but if surrounding space is simple you can cut out a lot of visual distractions that would otherwise spoil a perfect shot.
Results you would only expect from a desktop app 4/5
The results this app generates are truly amazing. You can literally remove unwanted objects from an image. Blemishes are a thing of the past. Never let power lines detract from a shot again. Buy this app. It is worth every penny. The iPhoto integration makes the workflow so quick and easy that it will be the first image you turn to when improving your photos. BUY IT NOW.
Hands down BEST photo retouching app EVER!! 5/5
I loved this app when it first came out years ago, although back then it was a little trickier to get the hang of using. They've since upgraded it and now this app is even better, far more user friendly and I have altered countless photos, removed unwanted objects, (or people LOL) from my shots seamlessly!! But you MUST watch those (SUPER) helpful tutorials! This app is worth every penny!
Fast and Easy 5/5
I was able to delete an object from my photo in about 3 minutes, first try, no problems. It was simple and it was quick!
It doesn't work! 1/5
I purchased this app for editing my several photos, but it doesn't work as I expected! Literally this app is using the mosaic to fix pics. Pretty bad... and I can't get my refund! The only thing I can suggest is DO NOT BUY IT!!!
This app only created smudges for my pictures. Wasn't useful to me.
Best app ever 5/5
I love love love this app!!! I have been looking for a app that would take power lines and such out of great pictures!!! I finally stumbled upon this app and I was amazed, I have only had it about 2 weeks now, but I can honestly say it is the best app I have ever downloaded and I have downloaded a lot of apps!!!
Back and Better Than Ever 5/5
By America's App Advisor
The 5-Star App I once knew is back and better than it's ever been!
This App is like having a magic wand on-hand as you edit ... to those reviewers stating their photos were ruined by this application, I only wish to say; the application is a tool. And in the hands of one who knows how to use the tool properly great things can be accomplished. Then there are those who do not take the time to learn and practice so they might use the tool properly. I guess what I'm trying to say is you made your bed now lie in it.
Do not curse the tool, curse the one who wields it for being a fool.
To the developer, thank you for the update - perhaps in the future avoiding a lengthy gap in between updates would please your customers a bit more.
Amazing 👍 5/5
By Safe your money
This app is so great
Just smudges everything. Skip.
Great app... sometimes 3/5
TouchRetouch is great when it works. However, due to algorithm limitations, there are many instances where the app creates disappointing results. As long as you have a simple background, then this app can work wonders!
Developers, please add the ability to retain metadata such as location when saving the image. Also, iPad support would be awesome! I'll give this app 4 stars if the developers add iPad support.
If you need to remove objects from an image with a simple background, then TouchRetouch is great. If the background is complex, then don't expect great results. Once you understand the above limitations, then you'll know it's great to finally have an app with this functionality on iOS!
It actually works! 4/5
As a professional photographer i bought it with the expectation that "no way does this app work!" and to my surprise it actually does what it says. Is it perfect?? no but not even the best photo editors can perfectly edit every photograph. I say bravo for making major edits simple on something like a phone!
