Used to be better 4/5
When I first downloaded this app, there were tons of different options and you could do fantastic things to your photos. Now, there’s only a handful of filters to use... still super cool, but not nearly what it once was.
Dope asf 5/5
Download this app
Honeymoon is over 2/5
This has become an expensive pay app. Womp womp.

Way Nice Light and Shadow Play - Great selections and Variations
Takes too long. Charges for everything.
Beautiful, fun!!! Outstanding!!!
Seriously taking away the free items? 1/5
By Cack in a box
I can’t believe that companies do this. If somebody has the free filters, they expect those free filters. Why wouldn’t your grandfather people in who have already downloaded your app and made you popular? You think you are that amazing, I guess. At what point does the greed overpower (customer) experience. It’s disgusting. I will not any longer utilize your app, nor will I refer friends and family to download it. Congratulations on a bad move.
Just updated to new version & only have a quarter of the use I use to have. The new subscription fees are really high. Think I’ll find a new app. It’s a shame as I really enjoyed the original version
By JUSEONER OSWK!
Used to be a cool app, now they just want to charge you for all the filters that used to be free.
Unbelievable App 5/5
This is an excellent app! I have downloaded thousands since the beginning of smart phones and can easily place Prisma in the top ten. Easy to use, lots of free choices, easy to save and share. The results are unbeleivable!
Fun while it lasted! 1/5
I am happy to pay for great apps that I use often. I want to support the developers. Sadly the latest update won’t even let me access the app unless I sign in with FaceBook, email or my phone #.
I already avoid social media as much as possible, I have no interest in sharing my pics through this app.
I also saw from another review what I suspected would be an issue with photo sharing. Pornographic pictures included in the sharing.
I have no issues with adults doing adult things but my kids had previously used this app so that’s a big NO for me now.
Off to delete. Such a shame.
Prisma is a blast 5/5
I love opening my photos and art in Prisma and adding Prisma effects.
Filters not working 1/5
Only one filter has worked in the 10 minutes I have had the app. “Something went wrong”. Yep. It did. Good bye
Money grab 1/5
Used to be my favorite photo editing app. But now everything is hidden behind paywall and it's a subscription app. Sad
Was good till. 1/5
Was good till they wanted to charge for things that were free.
Use to love this app 1/5
I used this app all of the time and now when I try to use it always some error pops up which has made it useless to use
Nope can’t do it!!! 2/5
I have had this app since it was invented back when I had a iPhone 6S... I now have an iPhone 8Plus... that’s 4 years!!! Back then this app was “free” and the absolute best app for turning your photos into real impressive fabulous fantastic pics that wowed me and people I showed every time!!!!! That was then, this is now... 4 years later this app turns into a paid subscription app monthly!!!! Nope can’t do it!!! [You] could at the least give those people who originally downloaded your app first, within let’s say the first 6 months to 1 year, at least give those people the app for free!!!! Geez. Or a flat fee, I would pay 2$ maybe 3$ for this app!!!
Good app 5/5
By katie halper
Nice app. Easy. Works well.
Limiting service and load time 1/5
It seems with every update to this app more filters are restricted in addition load time for filters gets longer and longer. It was a cool app but now will be looking for an alternative.
Inconsistent, but interesting 3/5
Several of the filters won’t work and give me the error “something went wrong please try again later.” But the ones that work are really cool.
Killer Layers! 5/5
My favorite app for beautiful filters. An ever expanding bank of limitless creativity. Prisma’s fellow fans and artists are a pretty killer group of people... from each *continent (still waiting for Antarctica, any day now;)) and that’s as good as it gets!
❤️ Prisma 5/5
By Piperbones Jones
Retired ... on a budget ....having to pay for family health care and all. Please do not set up a subscription service. And why remove previously used filters? I’d hate to let it go, but unfiltered photography is alright, too.
Keeps crashing 2/5
By Buffy Victor
its a must for me!! 5/5
By Mr. EzRa
i really LOVE this apps!! thank you..
Half of the library doesn’t work 5/5
(Edit) Okay, I’ve changed my rating now that I figured out why it stopped working for me. I must have inadvertently tapped on SD taking it out of HD, and most of the filters will not work in SD. I am back in love with this app.
I loved this app until it stopped working. I can’t access half of the library. I keep getting an error message that says “Something Went Wrong! Please, try again later.” We’ll, Im tired of waiting and trying later, it’s not working! Support is non-existent so if you have $20.00 to waste, give it a try, but you may be as sorely disappointed as I am. Twenty dollars is a lot of money to give up for a halfway working app.
Not able to use filters 3/5
When attempting to use half the filters I keep getting “ Something went wrong please try again later”. This happens even after reinstalling the app.
Not worth a monthly or yearly fee 1/5
Prisma is good. But it’s not recurring monthly fee good or recurring yearly fee good. Flat fee good, yes. Don’t waste your money just yet.
Update: Not only did Prisma developers take filters we had and lock them, but they took the daily filters away. The daily filters are now available again, but they don’t always work. They have scaled the free filters back to when the app was fairly new. I haven’t seen too many premium-subscription-only filters used in my feed since the institution of the monthly/yearly fee. Those of us who are loyal posters have predominantly been recycling all of the original filters we’ve been limited to, and that’s gotten boring.
Consider switching to the Deep Art Effects app (there are a plethora of filters, and even if you want to unlock “premium” filters, all Deep Art Effects asks is a one-time flat fee of $3.99. Or, you could try Artly, but it’s not as good.
Please continue to boycott this monthly/yearly fee. Greed is an evil thing.
Once again, Prisma is good, but it’s not recurring monthly fee good or recurring yearly fee good. Flat fee good, yes. Don’t waste your money just yet.
I wish I could have more styles for free
Could be Great 1/5
...if only it worked consistently. I paid for the premium subscription and over two days it only worked about half the time. My guess is their system capacity is inadequate to handle all the new business. Glad (but disappointed) I could cancel before the free trial period ended. 😩
Great app, great problem... 3/5
Hmmm well I’ve used the app for sometime; on an array of devices and think this is a must for even the most novice/advanced photographers...
Unfortunately I cannot rate it more than 3 stars, as a number of the features I LOVED, have been removed from the free version.
Forcing me to buy into an app that was already very much free, is quite ridiculous.
Fine, but now I’ve gotten a new device with a separate iCloud account, and must pay again for a redundant solution.
Please bring the exposure and other cropping and more themes...
So I can’t use the video feature. I keep giving me some kind of error message. I’m really curious to see how it works but you know aforementioned issue. Otherwise a good photo editing app.
Who charges for HD only lame app
Like the old version better 3/5
I have to say that I am not a fan of the subscription service. I liked the days when you could buy extra styles in the app. Now they force you to pay a monthly fee. And of course the app now differentiate between standard definition and I definition. All of these now have created an app that is far less stable than original. It’s a shame. When it works this app is really cool. But I can’t recommend it now when they try to gig you for the monthly subscription rate..
Only works with 40% o of the filters 1/5
“Something went wrong” on more than half the filters I choose. On iPad and iPhone.
Another Social Platform? 1/5
Barf. No thanks. You were cool as some filters. If you wanted to charge people for bundles, I get it. A monthly subscription to filter my photos? Go away, vampire apps. Go. Away.
Wow, they sold out 1/5
So I downloaded this app when it first launched on the App Store. Used a lot. Wasn’t the greatest but had a lot of potential. But recently they made filters that used to be free part of a annual subscription. That’s messed up and just greedy. I have stopped using this app because the developers made a very greedy and ridiculous decision. I was cool with the cost of HD. But to take filters originally free and make us pay really greedy. Hope this app fails and people don’t pay for it. Lost a loyal user...
Still broken 1/5
Old styles disappeared behind a paywall, including ones I'd already downloaded. The "restore purchases" button is broken and just spins forever. Taking away features that used to be free is a *horrible* user experience.
The subscription is absurdly expensive. Charge me a couple bucks once and I might accept paying.
Nice free offer 5/5
Like this app better than any at five have
Too rich for my blood 1/5
Sad about the expense now.
Wish packages were offered... 4/5
Love the app, don’t like the pricing. I would spend money if I could buy packages of filters rather then a monthly subscription.
By Billy Nikolai
Very creative app! The possibilities are endless!!!
See how you imagine 5/5
You can use Prisma on the run and not loose the feeling. Art on the fly, because life can be dull
Stop nickel and diming-just go to ad-based 2/5
I think it’s a little petty of the creators to reduce the number of filters so that the app is pretty much useless without signing up for a subscription. Ad based would be a much better idea. As much as I like the app I wouldn’t sign up for a subscription service for it. Hence why I put 2 stars in my review. Jump to ad based and you’ll have me back at 5 stars.
Simply the best! 5/5
Simply the best! What more needs to be said???!!!
Used to love Prisma. 4/5
While I currently like Prisma, you recently lost the 5 star love status I previously felt. The monthly or yearly fees are excessive and now I find that filters that I’ve been using for a long time are now locked!! So frustrating and disappointing!! I’d be happy to pay for individual filters that I like for a more reasonable one tone fee than this mess. You’ve lost me as a fan. Please give us better options than this current version.
Love it 5/5
By Jack White Stripe
I absolutely love this app....!!!
I do not want an $$ subscription which is only used maybe once every few months. 2/5
Changes have been made to app, that I am not comfortable with.
One year ago I gave it 5 stars, now I am deleting it from my mobile devices.
It was nice when it lasted.
Not happy 1/5
By Sb and sg and kg
There is a forced subscription. I don't use it all the time and so it is not worth it. I want to get rid of it and there does not seem to be an easy way to do it. I won't be using any app from this developer again.
Since when did you have to BUY the filters you originally had? This is lame.
A little sad 4/5
By Agent 47
I’ve had Prisma since it came out. Early adopter. I don’t use it often as I used to, but I loved that they didn’t follow the crowd of ad and subscription supported apps. Today I open it and it contains ads and locks features to subscription. It’s not bad, $20 a year, but it’s not what it used to be. Doesn’t feel as good as it used to. I don’t expect something for nothing, but i would prefer to pay a one time fee since I don’t use it that often.
