    Installed twice and it did not show proper shortcut either time. The app will try to start but crashes before it completes. I see there are no other reviews for the Samsung Note 4 so I wonder if it just doesn't work for that model.

    I wasn't too sure when I downloaded this but its a lot of fun! Only gripe is that sometimes I'm directed to a terms page, with no agree button! What's the point if I can't agree and be done with it? Slightly annoying as I have to close and reopen app to use

    I went pro and it's worth it but I don't like that the source pictures get stored in my cloud
