    "I have just gotten into photography as a hobby and at first my photos weren't very good. This app has been so useful to me though, and my photos have really improved significantly since I started using it. It is really easy to use too. The only drawback is the slight issue I have had with it crashing."

    "Really good camera! It's paid up front, so there's no annoying ads or sneaky surprises. The facial recognition is excellent as well and I found it super easy to use. Much better than the default camera app I had installed."

    "This app is fantastic! My wife and I are always trying to use filters to create the best photos, we are wedding photographers, and love all of the possibilities in Mextures. I particularly love the ability to color a portion of a black and white photo, it gives it a pop that is out of this world. I highly recommend."

    "Ability to be used across the watch and iPhone X platform. This could be released for free. I feel this app is a bit overkill as the iPhone's X new phone has a lot of good features. I currently own the X. However, if you take a lot of photos, there are filters that would be necessary to enhance your images."

    "VSCO is one of the best apps for photographers because of the features and community-based designs. It encompasses creating, discovering, and connecting. This hybrid editor and social media app is also not driven by likes/comments, so it is welcoming to all! With 15 included film stocks, and more added all of the time it is useful for nearly all."
