Come in Apple— how about a crack down on these bait and switch apps? I couldn’t even get into the “free” part without subscribing. Garbage.
Disappointing, just abstract colors 2/5
The name "Cartoona" implies cartoons, fun and imaginative ways to turn a photo into a cartoon.
Distort facial features? Nope
Stretch body limbs? Nope
Look goofy? Maybe even like Goofy? Nope
Caricature ?? Nope
All this app does is to paint the photo in many ways. Abstract color variations that's all.
Rip Off 1/5
Stay away from this app, it will charge you monthly without your consent
Where is the filter that you put in your advertising???? 1/5
I downloaded the app because they have a filter that you can turn your self in a yellow character as a simpson and there’s no that filter. I paid 8 dollars and I don’t see that filter they promote
Fake and lies 1/5
They mentioned 7 days free but there is not
It’s not what it seems... It’s not free It’s not worth it
Said it was free downloaded the app as soon as I opened the app it wants to charge me 6.99 a week to use it scam
I downloaded this game and have tried every imaginable way to log in it to make an account. Why do I have to make an account just to play with it? Also it has frozen way too many times. Uninstalling!!!!
Definitely not free 1/5
This is a fraud to advertise this app as free. There is only one way to use the app, and that’s becoming a premium.
It’s listed as free but once you download it, they ask you to pay a subscription and if you don’t....the app is useless, can’t even use the free option at all. Total scam! $6.99 a month btw.
USES STOLEN ARTWORK IN ADS! 1/5
By ^.^ haydenlover
Your Facebook ads features artwork stolen from Instagram artists @goldoxi21. False advertising as this app isn’t able to do what it says because it is based on stolen artwork.
It’s not free 3/5
Ad said it was free clearly it’s not. Please do not false advertise
Doesn’t work! 1/5
By Cheryl E Love
Thank goodness I’m in a free period! Downloaded app... went thru setting up account... chose pic and.... NOTHING! The cartoon choices show up but when you click it empty squares pop up beside it and will NOT Change the original at all! Canceling and keeping Sketch Master which dies the same thing and works! Back to the drawing board folks!!
It's not free 1/5
The first thing they ask is for you to pay 7 a week for premium, unlike other apps that offer premium butets you use free features this one doesn't seem to have any free features. So the only thing free is downloading the app itself
Dont work 1/5
Dont work registration
Don’t fall for it 1/5
By Picture Crazy Girl
The ad it self is eye catching and of course the word free will wheel you in.. don’t fall for it.. you have to pay.. don’t bother
GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY NOW! 1/5
I did not authorize a purchase, your app is a virus. Beware this shady company...
Bait & switch 1/5
This is becoming more & more prevalent to the App Store and I’m not sure why Apple hasn’t done anything about it yet. Maybe a class action lawsuit will do it. You see this is what’s called in the retail industry “Bait & Switch” and it’s against the law. You cannot offer something at one price then take the product to checkout and attempt to be charged another price. This product is listed as free. Not at $6.99 a week as it says when you try to use the product when you download it. Think of it like this, say you bought your iPad(wifi only for this scenario) for $800, then when you are attempting to set it up so you can use it a prompt pops up saying, “to use this product you must pay $6.99 a week” This is highly illegal in the United States. You must put what other charges there are in the description in order to use it as well as in the advertising especially if you are unable to use product at all without paying. Things such as “requires subscription” “additional charges in order to use” things of that nature. I going to speak with a lawyer on this matter to see if we can not only take a class action lawsuit against this products developer but all of them who preform this “Bait & Switch”.
Simply fun! 5/5
We have enjoyed this app, my friends and I love it!
14 a month 1/5
By jdjsks didks
Hmm idk if 14 dollars for a filter app is worth it
Free trial not a free app and you have to create an account.
How does it work? 1/5
I don't know, because it requires you to signup before your even can check it out. Bad start to any app.
Pay to use app 2/5
Not idea how it works cause it is required to pay subscription.
It’s a paid app 1/5
You can do nothing with this app unless you pay. False advertising
Not a Free App 1/5
It advertises a free app but not until you first subscribe to it, then the first week is free. Sorry, that’s not a free app!!! Deleted!! Misleading advertisement.
No gta filter 1/5
No gta filter frauds
Says Free but it is not 1/5
Says free, but can’t use unless you agree to a ridiculous amount of money.
At least let me try before you ask for money. Not free don’t waste the download.
not free 1/5
they say it’s free until it tells you to pay 6.99 to use they just want easy downloads
Tricky makes you pay 1/5
By Micluvin 1212
You down load it for free.
But forces you to pay $30 a year if you dont sign up for a 1 week free trial
7-day free trial 1/5
You can’t even try this without signing up for a WEEKLY subscription. Why does Apple allow the false advertising of “free” apps that aren’t free. Complete waste of time.
SCAM x 10
Requires too much!! 1/5
I downloaded this to check it out. It has no free access. You have to sign up for a trial. So I did to give it a week trial. It won’t let you continue unless you give it access to your photos, camera and send you notifications. I don’t let anyone or any app send me notifications. They’re annoying! Also I don’t know this company. I don’t want to let them have access to pictures of my kids. Who knows who runs this company. It could be Jared from subway for all I know. Eww. So I canceled my trial and deleted it before even trying it.
Worst App! False Advertising 1/5
100% false advertisement this does not turn you in a cartoon as the app says it’s 100% a photo editing app.
As the advertisement stats you can turn your self into a cartoon not automatically but more based on you editing everything your self.
Can’t believe this....
What ._. 1/5
Please don’t steal art. It’s impossible to make an app that turns you into a cartoon as shown in the Snapchat ads.
Bait and Switch 1/5
I thought to be listed as an Apple app there was a little more up front honesty. Gone are the $.99 apps that helped make this such popular platform.
And the Simpson? 4/5
By Fortnite :D
I saw an ad showing people being a very famous cartoon "The Simpsons" using a filter, the problem is because I don't know if it's me but there is no filter or option, nothing, there are filter options, options to improve the photo, but there is nothing
By Chris Morrison 1241
Are you KIDDING me??? I got better things to do with $520 a year than burn it $10 a week on this! If it was $20 a year... maybe. But... $520 a YEAR???? No way Jose!!!
By redheaded turk
In the process of trying to utilize the seven day free trial, I am inadvertently signed up for a one year subscription. I immediately (within minutes) attempted to contact customer support to inquire as to whether the subscription can be reversed. Two days later, I still have received no reply, although I’ve sent three messages. There seems to be no other contact method except for direct message through their app or website, which they have so far ignored. I understand if they can’t reverse the charges, but I would expect them to at least reply to my inquiry.
Fake rates 1/5
CONFIRMED-GO TO MOST FAVORABLE COMMENTS. They’re all so fake it hurts. Every comment is negative so tell me how y’all have a 4.5 star rating. I wonder what computer bot you programmed to simultaneously leave 5 star reviews knowing your app is poo
Like the effects, but not the sexting. 1/5
When they turned the app into a social media like thing, I was frustrated. There is no filter on content, and I continually see naked breasts, butts, and dicks. Any kind of family friendly filter would be great.
bad app 1/5
By Maci Mork
steals other small creators artwork.
Quality simple filters. Fun and effective 5/5
By Jv On The Run
This app is really good and well-made for quick simple filters that transform your images into a variety of types of artwork. Tons of different styles and lots of fine-tuning options. Good for business and for family
DON’T DOWNLOAD! 1/5
Should’ve read the reviews before downloading. I honestly never write reviews if I don’t have anything nice to say, but this app’s ads are a complete farce. Like many wrote in the comments before me, I downloaded this app in hopes of recreating a picture into a classic American adult cartoon (the one in which all the characters are yellow. I don’t want to say the name so that this comment doesn’t get taken down because of copy right issues), because that’s what was advertised on the ad, to find it’s a complete scam. Don’t waste your money or time with this app.
Scam Ad 1/5
I hate this trend of marketing that think its cool to fool consumers into downloading their so-called “FREE” apps, only to find out that “FREE” means that its free to download. Duh! Of course its free to download! You’re also free to walk into any store and take whatever you want, but there is a price to pay.
That’s the marketing of apps like this. Trick a consumer into downloading an app on their phone and then afterwards tell them they have to pay a price, i.e. Subscribe for a week, a month, a year, give up personal info like email and access to social media accounts. NO!
How about just be upfront and honest and tell us what it would cost to purchase a product that you’re advertising. Don’t trick consumers with your technicalities in wording and then expect us to spend money with you after you just “technically” lied by saying its free. ITS NOT FREE!
This kind of marketing unapologetically undermines consumers intelligence.
Doesn’t work without credit card hate trials 1/5
FALSE ADVERTISMENT 1/5
Ads on Instagram claim you can make your photo look like a Disney photo such as Aladdin and Cinderella which is completely false don’t bother wasting your time with such a horrible app
Updated app not what I paid for 1/5
App was updated and crop feature no longer works. Crop to size I want and it changes when I click the check mark. I want full picture not a piece that I keep getting. Help
