  • Awesome app for iPhone photo editing Jul 25, 2016

    By jjpixels
    I have been a professional photographer for 20 years and have relied on Photoshop as my main editing tool. Often I find myself exporting phone pics back to the desktop to edit because I can't do what I want on the phone. Handy has changed that for me. The retouching (healing) option is very good, and the smart crop works well. Being able to do selective area adjustment and having a smart selection tool like this app has make me go back to my desktop editing far less than before. I do have two dislikes for the app though. One major and one minor. My major complaint is that when trying to select a photo to work on the gallery view thumbnails are too small to see any detail at all, especially if you are like me and shoot multiple versions of each shot. The minor complaint is the magnification window that pops up when using the selection brush comes up on the left side of my finger. I am left handed and my finger always ends up blocking my view (partially) of the magnification tool. Being able to have a preference menu to set for right or left side display would be very useful.

    LOVE IT! I am getting back into art/design and digital marketing and have been testing different apps (outside of Adobe). I was just using Handy Photo for the 1st time - working on a personal project - and I absolutely love it! The UI is fantastic and the tools are great - easy enough for beginners and customizable settings for more advanced users. I've only used it for a couple hours but so far no issues. From what I've seen so far I definitely recommend!! Yippee. 🤘🏻
  • I'm so stupid! May 14, 2020

    Don't even remember buying this app but I'm sure it was because it came from the developers of the extraordinary TouchRetouch. Somehow, perhaps because its name reminded me of an old iOS app, I pushed it into a folder of obsolete apps and forgot about it. Huge mistake! This Handy Photo is a brilliant creation with wonderful features. The interface is markedly different from most pixel editors and, while less intuitive, is smart and efficient. We can only hope that it remains a fully supported product, deserving of system compatibility.

    I'm a visual/Hands on learner so I get one minute into the tutorial and I'm impatient to test the product out. When I started to play with all of the buttons and controls I was amazed by the depth of detail and infinite layers that could be used then modified and then further modified. I have come to realize just how essential HP is to my satisfaction in my art and photos. I am so appreciative of your app. Can't wait to see what's going to blossom with Handy Photo on my next project. Thanks😘
  • Hasn’t been updated to fix various issues. Jul 27, 2018

    By ThreeCheersForBeers
    Firstly, I’ve really enjoyed using this app to make quick corrections or take some creative liberties with the built in filters - it’s a great app to have in your IOS toolkit. The problem now for the last year or so is that absolutely none of the textures work anymore. I sent ADVA a help request in February of this year and was told that they were working on it - sadly it is now almost August and nothing has been done. I hope I can revisit this review and give it the 5 stars it deserves, but as of right now I unfortunately cannot.
  • I commend the creators of this fine app! Jul 10, 2018

    Numerous useful features. Along with normal exposure controls and filters, this app excels in simple controls for sophisticated uses like Retouch, which easily eliminates flaws, or a broad collection of frame types including my favorite the INNER LINE frame. The interface is easy to use and the various tweaking controls well chosen for useful outcomes. Using HANDY PHOTO, high quality professional output is possible with no pain.

    Takes a bit of getting used to just swiping across the screen to adjust the settings instead of using a slider, but once you've made the change there's no going back. Fiendishly clever but quirky AI editor, with a simple, clean interface containing tons of advanced tools and options. Great fun to use!

    My favorite photo editing app with a collection of tools for doing editing and photo manipulation. I've been using it for many years and have not found another photo editor to offer the photo fill-in tool (my favorite). I use it to make wallpapers fit my screen without cropping or stretching.
  • 1 issue for me Dec 27, 2016

    By solonike6
    I don't know why but 9 out of 10 times this app takes forever for me to install. I have plenty free storage and good wifi so I don't know what the problem is. I don't have this issue with any other app. The app itself is great, that's why I'm giving it 5 stars
  • Amazing! Dec 8, 2016

    By David_Burns_Red
    Handy Photo combines both of ADVA Soft's amazing apps - Touch Retouch and Anti-Crop - and additional tools, textures, and effects into one package. Their algorithm for retouching photos works like magic. It's so easy to remove unwanted things from photos or "un-crop" simple areas like skies or wall backgrounds.

  • Recent Problems Jun 21, 2018

    By Floridaskater2003
    I love the app's capabilities, when it works, but it has become unreliable. Not sure if it's because of recent iOS updates. I'm finding when working with Snapseed and I attempt to open my photo in this app, it won't load or it loads an unedited low quality original. I've tried using my saved photos, and I get the same result. The photo won't open in this app, or I get a version with with a greenish tinge. I've tried deleting and reinstalling, and that doesn't help. I hope that it can be fixed, but for now I'm deleting it.

    If I did, I might not have bought and download this app (although I like and use the developers other apps). This latest version is buggy and freezes. Hope they can fix these problems.🙏 If they do, I will change my review.

    I honestly found this app to be more trouble than it was worth to keep. Not very user friendly, with only a few options for editing and customizing photos.

    Loads of great features and they've worked great up to now, but I've been trying to edit a 2100x2100 photo on my Moto Z and it just keeps crashing
  • Amazing app but... Jan 21, 2018

    By blink2x
    This app was simply incredible, but is very slow and unstable on iOS 11.2. Desperate need of updating. Really hoping an update or new version come out because it was unmatched in functionality and user interface.
  • Crashes When Moving Or Copying Object Sep 19, 2019

    I wish i read the top review before purchasing this App. Would have been absolutely great App with all of its supposed features but it crashes failed to execute most functions!

    Used to be amazing, but now crashes every single time it's opened, no matter how many times i reinstall.
  • Not User Friendly, Keeps Logging Out Apr 14, 2019

    By Tanya EA
    The app seems easy to use initially, but you get stuck in the middle of editing with no easy guidance. The app also continuously just logs out in the middle of editing.
  • Update, please! Aug 4, 2017

    By 35madscientist
    It's time to update so devices can use the app…like those at 10.3.3 and some lower, but it's limited with the devices it supports. Thanks!

    This is by far the most sophisticated photo editing app I've ever used, and I say that in a good way, the only problem I have with it is that it is quite complicated to me... It's definitely not for weekend warriors, this is one awesome beast of a photo editing application to the utmost degree. 5 STARS
  • Excellent all-purpose photo editor! Jul 6, 2018

    Recently revisited HandyPhoto—still never ceases to amaze me. The UI is very different from any other app so I greatly appreciate all the hints! With each use, I discover new tools. Highly recommend HandyPhoto!

    The app is pretty cool, love the way it allows you to modify photos. 3 stars because I cannot believe that in such a good app an option to rotate the photo is missing 😱 (like one to adjust the horizon)

  • Developer abandoned app Oct 7, 2018

    By Cjmyangel
    Once upon a time this was the 'go to' app, but evidently the developers decided to focus on making another app similar to this one... perhaps to charge customers again? No thanks.
