Snapseed app reviews

  • If Only It Worked!! 1/5

    By mcbfit
    If only this app worked! It has so much potential but when it keeps crashing that’s a serious problem! If you can’t edit and create amazing pics when it won’t even stay open then there needs to be some serious fixing going on! Please correct and you’ll get me attention once again! Until then….
  • Lag on open 1/5

    By that1nathankid
    This is an app that’s been best in class for a long time but there’s an outrageous lag when you are opening a new image that makes it wildly frustrating to use. Users will end up accidentally opening the camera instead of their camera roll because the camera button jumps up. This has happened for ages and it is baffling that y’all have not fixed it. PLEASE help.
  • Loved for YEARS, but Outdated & Buggy 3/5

    By TheNoveltyDame
    Granted, I still use this app and probably have been since 2014 or so (I can’t remember, it’s been so long and I could probably count on one hand when I’ve used a different app). But I’ve become terribly disappointed at how much it now lags and it’s a coin toss if I’ll be able to edit a photo normally (or be stuck turning my phone horizontally just to get edit features to load/work). I truly have loved this app and all it’s features, but I’m afraid I’ll be looking for a new one soon if it’s glitches don’t improve. Please don’t let this app die! Make some serious updates so basic features work *every* time and not *some* times :’(
  • Was a great app - now freezes 2/5

    By ndatbdat
    This app hasn’t been right since iOS 15. I’m on 16.02 and it locks up all the time. Not good.
  • Won’t work 1/5

    By shell642
    App won’t even open for me. It immediately goes to a grey screen that says “tap anywhere to open a photo” & I tap tap tap the entire screen & nothing.
  • Going downhill!! 3/5

    By NW Mike
    This used to a great app before Google bought it. It’s user interface changed, Google got what they wanted out of Nik. Now it’s slower and glitching. Our phones become more powerful it should be easier to operate but it’s getting bad.
  • Keeps crashing 2/5

    By Dontwanttigiveuanickname
    I used to love this app. But as of today, every time i open this to edit a photo, it will insert the photo, freeze, and then close out. I’m unable to even select any type of tool or button in this app. Quite frustrating
  • Great app BUT freezes A LOT!! 2/5

    By FaraFix
    This is such a great app with so many awesome features but the constant freezing makes it very user UNFRIENDLY!! I keep having to reload the app several time and it’s just not worth it anymore. Really disappointing!
  • Arréglenlo por favor 1/5

    Se me bloquea la app y no me deja hacer nada con el iphone 12 pro max
  • iphone freezes 2/5

    By shanechicago
    what happened Snapseed? This used to be my "go-to" editing app, but now everytime I use it, my phone freezes
  • RAW photo editing broken 1/5

    By mdub318
    I am new to editing raw photos. I saw online this app allowed for it but when you upload the raw photo it is extremely dark and can’t be viewed and edited normally. Sad because this app seemed like it would be perfect.
  • Great app but…. 1/5

    By fawnorlov
    I love this app but it freezes so so so often. I barely can use it anymore cause it just freezes the whole phone.
  • Crashes too much 2/5

    By ScotchTape
    It worked great for a few weeks, then it became inoperable. It would freeze up and crash for no reason. Very disappointed.
  • Snapseed completely glitches out on iOS 16.0 1/5

    When I try to run Snapseed on my iPhone 12 pro max on iOS 16.0 it glitches and freezes my screen. Please fix this. I really like Snapseed and I want to continue to use it but I won’t be able to if this problem isn’t fixed. Thank you.
  • Snapseed/not user friendly/limited options 2/5

    By Photographs for fun
    Several years ago I had the most awesome free app called Aviary. I, as a beginner photographer could make beautiful pics. Like most good. things, it came to an end and I got Snapseed. It is not user friendly. Doesn’t have enough options. I don’t know why people are so thrilled about it. There were in-app purchases you could make with the other App I mentioned. Many different types of frames, styles of pics, etc. it was a fun app. I have heard the one you have to pay for now, is not as good. Searching for a fun, great editing app that is user friendly, and has many options and don’t mind paying.
  • Freezing 1/5

    By Nick.r.t

  • Best editor 5/5

    By Jnetrox
    It’s amazing this is the best editor that I’ve come across which is intuitive and simple yet powerful and provides excellent styles. The healing brush is much welcome too !
  • What is wrong with snapseed!? 1/5

    By nickel & diming me
    I’ve been using snapseed forever with raw images and it alway did a great job. Open a raw photo that looks great and immediately it goes to severely underexposed and ugly. PLEASE fix your app!!
  • Downhill 1/5

    By Powerlock 360
    This app used to be great. Now it freezes up constantly even though I have tried everything to make it work. So bummed.
  • Perfect application for any Apple device! 5/5

    This application was perfect for what I needed to use it for. It is therefore the ultimate choice for any developer who wishes to formulate an elite artistic view. Thank you for all your help! I appreciate it so much!
  • App constsntly freezes/locks up! 2/5

    By Howiemeister
    GOOGLE - Fix Snapseed or remove it from the App Store for Pete’s sake! It’s been 8 months since any updates. Like others have said, it crashes or freezes up constantly now! This is so disappointing. Snapseed’s always been my go-to editing app. FIX IT!
  • Gone Downhill: Freezes and Locks 1/5

    By Kt02222
    I used to love this app for editing pics, it was super easy to navigate and use. But for the last several months no matter what pic you open, it freezes my entire phone sometimes to the point my phone won’t even turn off (like it locks it). So unfortunately the app no longer is a viable option to use. 😕
  • Freezing 2/5

    By fantastic read for sisters
    This app used to work great! However, now it is freezing. I have a new iPhone and have updated, deleted, and redownloaded the app.
  • Crashing on my iPhone 12 Pro Max 3/5

    By 0_o <-
    I love Snapseed, the best free photo editing app IMO. It’s been acting up lately tho, crashing quite often.
  • No dark mode 1/5

    By djtunzat
    Please google. Please add a dark mode.
  • Was one of my favorites…no longer works 1/5

    By brated1199
    I came to check out if I had missed an update because this app no longer works. I’ve had this app for over 5 years. Why is no one updating this app or take it out of the App Store! Hey Apple!! All this app does is crash and freeze my phone for a minute. Editing a picture is impossible without it crashing. 100% does not work anymore. Deleted. 😔 If I hear they finally make an update I’ll download again.
  • Curious…. 3/5

    By RedRocket131
    I’ve had this app for a long time but it’s been sitting in my cloud. I’m thinking about redownloading it but based off Recent Reviews (the only reviews that matter to me), it looks as though the developer may have recently abandoned this app. I hope that’s not the case, please fix the bugs. I’m going to test it out & if I don’t leave another review, so far it’s good.
  • Freezes constantly anymore 1/5

    By 1heavanly.flower
    Like everyone else Snapseed used to be my favor app but now all it dies it freeze everyone I try to use it. Guess it’s time to find something else to use.
  • Crashes 1/5

    By just a guy with an iphoneb
    App works fine until you open any editing tool and it immediately crashes. Used to love this app before this happened
  • Used to be great 2/5

    By JDflyer227
    It is so sad to see how bad this app has gotten. It used to be my go to photo editor. I can’t really even give it a chance anymore because it literally freezes and locks up 90% of the time I try to start a new edit. I am deleting it from my iPad now and I am very sad because of that.
  • Freezes 1/5

    By mecca lecca high
    App freezes , and ends up freezing the phone. Deleted, added back, same issue, updates, same issue. Deleted for good. ✌🏽
  • Great app in the past, unusable in its current state 1/5

    By Just my 2¢
    This was my go to app for photo editing for the last few years but over the last year it has become completely unusable. The application consistently freezes on every use.
  • One of my most used apps 5/5

    By brian485
    Zero complaints. It has never failed to do what I expected it to do. One does need to spend some time learning how to get the most out of this app but that investment will be rewarded. YouTube has some excellent tutorials. My workflow for quick photos starts with one of my Fujifilm X Series cameras shooting in JPEG, Wi-Fi transfer to my iPhone, edit in Snapseed and either share or sometimes print at home or send out to a printer. I’ve printed up to 16x24 with great results.
  • Do not recommend 1/5

    By Sandra Fiorella
    It used to be great. What happened? Anything I try to edit or freezes and crashes and won’t let me edit. I used to LOVE it but sadly I’m deleting it and giving up all together. Whatever changes they made only made it worse.
  • Can't save any pictures. 1/5

    By kikyoukiss
    No response...
  • Loved it - what happened? 4/5

    By Stano43
    Have loved this app for YEARS. Lately it has started to freeze. What is up???
  • Use to be the best editing app. 1/5

    By brhdjsjs
    I have been using this app for years, the last year or so it had been freezing but would work half the time. Now it’s completely unusable. It freezes my whole phone anytime I try to edit any photo, and then the app just shuts down. It’s sad. I don’t know how you go this long without figuring out a fix for an app.
  • I use all the time! I request OLED HDR export. 4/5

    By Mchammer +++
    I use this application all the time! It is my all time favorite editing app. I love that it is free too! I use this app along with Focos, which is perfect for bringing depth of field edits to the photo. The reason for the highlighted area is because I would be appreciative of HDR exporting. I use an iPhone 11 Pro. If I were to edit this photo natively through the Apple Photos Editor, then the HDR features of the photo would be saved. This HDR takes advantage of the OLED screen enabling it to produce greater contrast in darks and highlights. Focos exports like this, but I cannot edit a photo in Snapseed first and then receive those HDR outcomes. So that is something I’d like to see come to this app. Also I’d like to see more export options. TIFF, HEIC, etc. PNG export is in the app, but I’m not sure how good it works. I never noticed PNG and Transparent attributes to photos or vectors I import as PNG. I do wish the healing feature would be more advanced. Also I’d like to see Ai photo enhance, enlargement, sharpening, and advanced facial edits. Ai Depth of field additions would be a great addition to make it a more well-rounded app and editing suite. I’m thankful for the native features now, including Dark Mode! It’s amazing! I’m very thankful for the review edits tab because I can also draw in certain edits where I want them in the photo. Thanks, Matthew C.

  • App stop working 1/5

    By Ambertr4n
    Please have it fixed. The app isn’t working on iOS 15.5. SMH
  • Apply last edits gone 1/5

    By Mikmeister
    I deleted and reinstalled this ad because I could not find the “apply last edits” feature. I searched exactly where it’s supposed to be on the top right of the screen but neither the three dots nor the other icons offer the option.
  • I love this app! 5/5

    By PowerFitKelly
    Seriously, this app is so underrated!! It’s so much fun and I love using double exposer to add a photo on top of another photo and there are SO MANY tools that you can use! You’ll never get bored with this app, I’ve been using it to make photos to then put into a video on CapCut and I LOVE it! I don’t understand why there are so many negative reviews, this app is awesome!! <3
  • Raw issues 2/5

    By shotsonice
    Every time I select a RAW photo to import, the develop screen always freezes. This has been happening for years. This is literally the only bug that doesn’t seem to get fixed. The app would be perfect if I could actually edit RAW without all the hassle.
  • Great app with few flaws 4/5

    By Jar Jar Binks 4 Da Win
    With the next few updates i’d like more detailed optimization, for instance: Improvement of usability of the “opacity” switcher on the “brush tool” while masking.
  • Please fix!! 1/5

    By EVGirl1
    The app freezes and crashes constantly. Developers, please fix it!!!
  • Save threshold 4/5

    By Harry Fom
    I’ve been using this app for a while but I’ve noticed that there’s a problem being that when you start saving a lot of changes or make a lot, when trying to edit the photo more and save, the program crashes after loading all the edits when trying to save the new edit. Please try fixing this problem, as it has been present for about more than a year. I have noticed that it cannot save a lot of edits using the curve tool, please fix.
  • freezing 1/5

    By Azzu115
    please update the bugs or else it’s totally unusable
  • App Performance Glitch 1/5

    By dutchbuttercupp
    I’ve used this app for over 10 years and was absolutely over the moon with it … until today. The HDR function only intermittently works. It randomly lightens photos to point where you can barely see the image and inserts what resembles starbursts and bullseye targets in the photo. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it, powered off and re-powered up my phone and neither resolution action changed the app’s poor performance. Highly disappointed as this was my primary photo editing tool.
  • Wow 1/5

    By anthony guru
    Since I switched to iPhone I’ve hated it but this really does it I used this app on my Android’s for years flawlessly- yet to see all these reviews is very disappointing! How are you guys letting such once a great app go down the drain!?
